You come here for a reason. To say you've been to the Hard Rock cafe in New York. Surprisingly the food was good the salmon salad my niece had was really good and the burger slider my wife and I shared was very tasty with fries. The beer was flat but the cocktail tasted nice and refreshing. Service is always trying to upsell which isn't very appealing but on the whole a nice trip.

Unfortunately my parents had food spilt onto them as a waitress walked passed.
My food arrived and there was long strands of hair in my meal.
My parents and I was offered a free drink each however it was not a good first night in New York.

I have been to other hard rocks and this one unfortunately didn’t live up to expectations. We ordered starters and we hadn’t even finished the starter before our mains came out. We weren’t asked once how our meal was. The food was nice but I would have preferred to have finished my starter then have a good 10 minutes before my main. Considering tipping is customary in America, I felt that I had to tip despite the waitress only actually taking our order. Other waiters brought our food out so I’m not quite sure what we tipped for. The service was absolutely nothing to write home about.

Someone in mgmt decided to keep my change(cents) instead of giving me the opportunity to make the choice. Yes I asked for it and she gave it to me with an unpleasant expression.

An hour delay in getting a table when we had a reservation which isn’t great, ended up eating at the bar but the bar staff were great.

Booked the table from uk without a problem having been to NYC before and it’s been very busy.
Table was ready for us .service was good ,music was excellent but not overpowering.

Food portions were good but not overwhelming as in other places.free refills on soft drinks
NYC cheesecake was to die for

It took an hour for our entrees to arrive. People around us were served and left before we got to eat. I was traveling with a restless 7 year-old. When the food did arrive, my daughter wouldn't touch the chicken tenders, they were completely dried out. I ordered the steak salad. The steak was ice cold and overdone. Half of the steak was grizzle and inedible. The server was great and very friendly.

Waiting time, even with a reservation is long. And service is not fast either.

Birthday - service was great - it’s loud but that can’t be controlled and I’m not sensitive to noise. Food was excellent burgers and beet salad ! I’ve been several times and the food has improved tremendously.

Disappointed, I was hoping to find a world full of rock and what I found was a place where I heard "reggaeton". they should remove the "rock" part of the name. Of course, the food was very tasty.

So glad we booked in advance - really easy through Open Table, queue was 45 mins otherwise. Everything was what we expected, food was great but too much to eat as is usual in the States! Great atmosphere too.
