    We've visited several Hard Rock Cafes around Europe, this was our first visit in US. Food was good, drinks not so much and didn't think much of the service. On entry to our yable they take a photo and we were told this would be brought to our table, it never was. It was my wife's 50th birthday which we said in booking and to our server. Everyone else who was in and celebrating their birthdays had a shout out by their server, my wife didn't even get hers acknowledged.When the drinks arrived they were slammed on the table and our server seemed distracted/annoyed or both. It wasn't particularly busy yet we had to wait quite a while for our bill. We'd purchased souvenir glasses and the girl who served us for these gave us exceptional service, and we were at the counter for less than 5mins. Overall we wouldn't recommend anyone to visit, Food good, drinks not great, atmosphere ok, service not as expected.

    The music wasn’t live and staff didn’t know “when there would be a live band on again”. Which is pretty poor for the Hard Rock Cafe. One drink tasted like it came from the bottom of the ocean. The food tasted like a Walmart ready meal. Although staff were friendly and attentive the rest was absolutely diabolical and I would not recommend.

    Everyone was very nice from the person at the front door, host, and our lovely waitress. The food was good and enjoyed the music. My only complaint is the mojito was too sweet for me. It was a great time though

    Our server Diva Jones was fantastic, she was very helpful and kind, the food was brought out very quick and was very good, we ordered deserts and the apple cobbler came out frozen and not edible, Diva came over and changed the desert very quickly and it came out piping hot. Thats why I put 4 stars for the food as you pay alot of money and expect the food to be warm and not cold. 5 stars for service as Diva was brilliant.

    We had made a reservation. The first person who received us did't say much just took us to a "lost" table in a corner next to a service entry. We had to ask another table. She didn't seem to like it.

    Windowless basement dining. Depressing. Dreary and quiet. They should put on some rock tunes and crank up the volume. It’s supposed to be Hard Rock Cafe. Not soft rock diner.

    Not usually one to write a review but I feel like I have to here! We are visiting from the UK, and are unsure if there are huge cultural differences but this was the worst meal myself and my partner have ever eaten. Firstly, the restaurant is dark and dingy, not appearing clean (this is something noted at all other food establishments in the city too). The waitress was okay, but seemed to rush us a lot in terms of ordering and forgot my fiancés side order. We had only just started our starters when main courses were brought out - we weren’t given any option to send these back to wait, we just had to have them sit on the table while still picking at starters. This let things go cold and we had no time to rest and breathe in between courses. The food itself was awful, completely tasteless - the chicken seemed processed and on the fajitas the chicken portion size was just tiny. The only positive we can pick out here is that drink refills came quickly. Being a regular customer at the Hard Rock Cafe in London, we know the menu, what things should taste and appear like and the overall experience you should expect here. It is usually a fun, lively experience with excellent food and service, something we thoroughly enjoy. After the meal here; we left feeling slightly sick and not at all full up - overall, a waste of over $100.

    La calidad ha bajado mucho su calidad al igual que las instalaciones que están muy deterioradas, dado el hecho de que es Hard Rock Cafe y de considera un templo de la música el sonido está muy deficiente igual que las pantallas creo que deberían hacer algo de inversión y darle vida al local

    We arrived at 7pm and we’re seated promptly by the stage area. The restaurant was very empty so lacked atmosphere. Our server seemed in a real rush to get our order and came over 3 times in less than 5 minutes. We ordered boneless wings to start to share, and main courses. When the food came out it was chicken wings, we explained we’d ordered boneless and the server said they’d get them changed. Our original server came over to say he hadn’t realised we wanted boneless but would get them changed. Then our main meals came out, we pointed out to our server that we hadn’t even had our starter yet and he said it was because we’d sent it back so would have to wait for it. Our starter came out half way through us eating our main so we didn’t actually have them. Then our server brought us the bill and said “when your ready”. We were still eating our mains and hadn’t been asked if we wanted any more drinks or deserts. He then can back as soon as we’d finished eating and said we needed to pay him directly. It felt very rushed and uncomfortable. Also there was a live band but as we were seated by the stage (which they were not on) it was a strange experience as we could not see them, and hadn’t even realised it was a live band at first. All in all it was quite a disappointment as we’d been excited to visit the Hard Rock Cafe New York

    Server was very disappointing, didn't listen or even look at us when we ordered which meant our order was wrong, food was luke warm - expected really good service with it being a hard rock cafe and it was far from that. We'd been to bubba gumps a few nights earlier and it was 100% better, would not recommend to anyone.

    Service was terrible. No one came looking after us once meals served. We never received our second round of drinks. Burger were served with only free fries on each plate (same quantity as served for the kids menu). The Messi burger was not advertised as being served with hot sauce in it. If you’re not a spicy person, it was for sure a disappointment.
