    The Service was Not good. We waited for a server and no one came. But all waiters were standing together and talked. First when I did ask someone a waiter came to get our orders. .

    This was the perfect place to take my Goddaughters and their grandmother as they loved the place! The overall music and guitar theme won them over! Their favorite part was taking the picture with the guitar and mics. The food was okay, but our waitress was wonderful(I wish I could remember her name) but everyone was as so friendly!

    Booked for my birthday and could not wait to leave. Will never visit again. Originally seated in what I can only describe as being like a school canteen. We were then moved to the remotest corner of the restaurant where the air conditioning was so severe we sat freezing with goosebumps. The tables were also low and the chairs so high and uncomfortable that I was forced to lean over to eat my meal which caused back pain. The food was standard as was the service. Not sure why you’re asked when booking if it’s a special occasion as this was completely ignored. The worst experience I’ve ever had in New York. So uncomfortable several of us left the table as soon as the meal was over whilst others waited to pay the bill. Booked here as been before at the same venue but this visit was extremely disappointing particularly as it was a special occasion.

    Came here yesterday with my partner to celebrate our anniversary. Was seated by Emily who was lovely to deal with, very nice and pleasant. Ordered two cocktails which took ages to come out, however we appreciated it was busy. Ordered two burgers and asked for them to be well done, and my partner asked for it with no onions. Burgers again took ages to come out and when they came they were both undercooked and my partners had onions. Emily offered to have them re done which we were greatful for. Has another long wait for them to come back out and when they came back they were still undercooked, my partner ate his but I couldn’t enjoy it and Emily offered to take it off the bill which was very kind. We were told a manager was coming over to talk to us and we waited but in the end had to leave as no one came over and we were travelling early this morning. Very disappointed as we enjoy going to the Hard Rock Cafes wherever we travel and always find it very good. We love getting the T-shirts and merchandise in the shop after and have Hard Rock T-shirts from a few different cities. We would have stayed for desert and more cocktails if it hadn’t been such a disappointment. We had been looking forward to coming here since the start of the trip and just felt let down.

    Ok to visit if you love Hard Rock Cafe. Liked the music but the food was not the best. I love Ceasar sallad and eat at many restaurants. This one had week taste of dressing and chicken cold, plus ower cooked and dry.

    We made a reservation at 5:30. They would not seat us before that time even thought the musical was over at 5p. The person who we checked in with seemed flustered! She said " no way can we seat you before our reserved time" . So we sat in the steps for 30 min! It was not that it was packed! There were so many empty tables when we were seated at 5:30. Not sure why! The waitress was great! Took the orders within a reasonable time. Food was great! We enjoyed it!

    Nos pusimos en contacto por e-mail con HardRock días antes de hacer la reserva para preguntar si tenían pan de hamburguesa sin gluten, ya que dos de las personas que iban a comer son celiacas. Nos contestaron que si, que tenían pan gluten free de hamburguesa. Cual fue nuestra sorpresa cuando habíamos pedido la bebida y ordenamos las hamburguesas el camarero nos dice que no tienen pan de hamburguesa sin gluten y que le pueden poner lechuga en vez de pan. Aunque suene sorprendente, esa fue la solución que el camarero nos dio. Me parece inaceptable que engañen de esta forma para captar clientes. Por otra parte quiero dejar constancia del frio que hacía debido a la baja temperatura a la que ponen el aire acondicionado. No puede ser que estando a 35 grados en la calle dentro del local haya que ponerse una chaqueta.

    Ambiance très sympa au cœur de time square Ce restaurant est un véritable musée du Rock et mérite de flâner pour découvrir les instruments, costumes de scène d’artistes ! Un endroit qui mérite la peine de s’y arrêter Le rapport qualité prix est très correct pour ne rien gâcher.
