Lo único negativo fue que la reserva no te asegura que llegues y te dan la mesa. Llegas y te dan el aparato para que esperes y cuando suena recién podes sentarte.

The staff are so over workedcthat they don’t really have time to pay attention to their guests, when our meal arrived it was slow but the worst was it was freezing cold when it got to the table and I wasn’t able to eat more than a bite the person waiting on us didn’t even bother to ask what issues I had had with the food which is over priced as you would expect for times sq and the hard rock. I will not be returning

Thankfully we had a reservation as the wait time was two hours. When we were seated we had our drink order taken and eventually our main course. For most of the time that we were there our server was non-existent. Of all the food we ordered the best dish was the spinach and artichoke dip. Other than that all the entrées were subpar for the cost and my wife ended up getting sick on her sliders.

Very friendly staff from booking in team t0 the table service teams. Food was delicious and one of our party was not happy with the burger being undercooked. It was immediately taken away and another cooked to perfection. Whilst waiting more hot chips were produced and the item take off the bill. Drinks and shakes were all lovely and the atmosphere great. Only one complaint is the photo taken at the beginning and the pressure of the salesperson to try and get us to buy. We didn't as it was pretty awful. But would definitely return and recommend to others.

Just the 2nd most horrible hard rock visit in my life (1st was in miami). Service was terrible - I am familiar with the most greatest service in every hard rock but here it wasn‘t and also the food wasn‘t what I know from hard rock. All in all not good and I was here before and so very disappointed.

Felt like wanted us in and out as quick as possible. Forced to have photo taken and then people tried to sell us stuff while we were eating. Food quality poorer than at any other Hard Rock Cafe we've eaten at.

The food portions were not worth the price. The server was not engaged with the customers. On a Saturday night in Times Square should have had some type of entertainment. Hard Rock Cafe In Myrtle Beach SC is more inviting.

I always enjoy coming here with my son and the music videos while you eat there are fun to watch. We especially had a great time there recently to celebrate my son's birthday. The waiter came out with a complimentary chocolate fudge sundae which surprised both of us. The food is fabulous especially the salmon and the hamburgers. We also always enjoy walking around looking at the instruments and photos of famous musicians. I highly recommend coming here if you have never experienced it and I'm sure you will be coming back!

A different experience for sure, especially for a visitor; good food, good ambience, and good memorabilia but noise was trifle loud for talking to people with us. Waitress forgot it was my grand daughter’s 16 birthday which was included in the reservation under special events, even though we had mentioned it on arrival. So my daughter mentioned it again as we were paying the bill and waitress brought choc Sunday with candle and made out special occasion memorable.

The staff was very attentive and pleasant. Interesting decor. I didn’t mind the music even though it was loud and I’m a 60’s, 70’, 80’s R&B fan. I enjoyed the Legendary Burger. I also enjoyed the Chicken Cesar salad I got to go. One minor complaint why adorn the rim of the Boozy Shake with all those gorgeous sprinkles if you can’t get them off the glass.

We would absolutely recommend this restaurant. Whenever we have come to nyc for a play we come here. The service is outstanding and everyone is very personable. The hamburgers and French fries are the best but I am sure all the food is wonderful. My grandchildren love to come here and also look around the gift shop. Great place to go!

We go to every hard rock we can and in every city we can so I write this knowing what to expect. The New York hard rock is the worst one we have visited! The staff were saying how they couldn't wait to go home, desert menus were opened and put in front of us whilst we were eating our mains, rushed in and out within 45 minutes. Literally no atmosphere what so ever. Music was so loud that it was just noise and you couldn't hear it.
Also, the lady on the table next to me burnt her hand on the hot plate her food was served on. When she asked a waiter for ice he told her she had to wait for her server to bring it to her as he couldn't as it wasn't his table.
Tried to speak to the restaurant about our experience but they haven't replied to me.
Also, out waitress automatically upgraded our beers to the large with the glass, we didnt ask for this and when we questioned it she told us that we got a free glass so not to worry. We didnt want a free glass. We also didn't want to pay an extra $5 each for the same size beer (do we basically paid for the glass!)
Would we go back? No.
Recommend it? Hell no.

It’s ok for quick bite. Food was okay not spectacular. The burger had not rested and leaked in bun making it soggy. Chips were cold and dry tasting like they had been stood for a while
