Located in the heart of downtown Seattle, the Hard Rock Cafe Seattle strikes the perfect balance in a city that boasts one of the most diverse and influential music scenes in the world, a city where Jimi Hendrix performed his first headlining gig, where upscale coffee was perfected, and where countless visitors flock each year to see the sights. Designated a LEED certified building, our Hard Rock Cafe mixes in as much of authentic Seattle as possible, from the existing timbers of our Pike Street building to our city-specific memorabilia. Our 14,000-square-foot cafe in Seattle includes seating for 425, a vibrant bar, and a Rock Shop® featuring a wide array of Hard Rock’s limited-edition, highly collectible merchandise. The aesthetic of Hard Rock Cafe Seattle follows a “Rustic Refined” design vision, which articulates the energy and vibe of the brand. The cafe also offers a unique memorabilia experience, with hundreds of iconic items commemorating Seattle’s vibrant music history.

Very slow and poor service. We were told by the waitress that all burgers have gluten free buns and she refused to check on it. We had to ask another waitress to please bring us a gluten free bun. Also, my daughter was celebrating her 8th birthday and instead of bringing her a sundae like they said they would, they brought the milkshake she ordered without any candle and slid it on the table and said, “Happy Birthday, Sweetie.” I do not plan to go here or any Hard Rock in the future. It’s sad they have gone downhill.

Service was great and food tasty. We ended up getting a combination of starters, sides and entrees that worked out well for our group.

the store was not busy yet it took over 40 minutes to receive the food. The waitress was pleasant, but the kitchen had no sense of urgency. Also, I might have overlooked it but I saw no where that the rooftop dining area was designated 21 and over. That was disapointing since i had kids with me. Overall its slightly better than fast food without the fast service. Not worth dining there as I would rather pay more for a good meal or better dining experience.

Our waitress was horrible. She never asked us once how our food was. She didn’t even bring us our appetizer or food. We had the manager and our waitress walk past our empty cups 6+ times over a course of over 10 mins with an empty glass. She then came to clear plates off the table and was going to walk away without even acknowledging the empty drinks - we had to ask for drinks and then our bill. We saw her 3 times in the hour and fifteen minutes we were there.

Love the hard Rock so much! My family and I come down here every time that we’re downtown. We usually try and make it out during today, but the night was just as nice. Such a fun environment and friendly staff.

After booking a table for a birthday for 8 people, and confirming twice that everything will be ready, the table has not been prepared upon arrival and our group was shuffled in an upstairs area. Very disappointing

Server was hard to get a hold of at times. Since we were there for 6+hours waiting for a show we had to use the restroom a few times. Each time we told the wait staff that the bathroom was out of TP and soap. Noting was done for an hour. Then at hour two one sink received more soap. Disappointed in the upkeep to the establishment. Uneven tables. Sticky floor. Poor restroom conditions. To balance that, the wait staff, security, and welcome staff were all very happy and willing to serve.

It was great being able to get in since it was Saturday night of Emerald City Comic Con and the staff was awesome to accommodate 9 of us instead of the original 8. John our waiter was awesome and patient in giving us time to look over everything we wanted and didn’t rush us at all.

everything was perfectly cooked, the atmosphere was awesome, the music was a little loud, but not horrible, staff was very friendly.....my only complaint is that the bathroom was full the whole time we were there and I never actually got into use the restroom before we left.

I would like to see either another restroom added somewhere else or the one you already have needs to be expanded.
