It was very busy so make sure you have reservations. The ambience is great and it's fairly spacious for a restaurant in NYC. Great proximity to the local theaters. Very many cool things on the walls. The service was surprisingly quick. The food was good, though it was a bit pricey for what we got (burgers, fries, and chicken wings). I guess that's just how it is in NYC though!

We ordered 3 cocktails and was asked did we want to buy the glass which we said yes. We then ordered 1 beer and was told we HAD to buy that glass also. After arguing with the server we had bought 3 and didn’t want another he reluctantly agreed to take it off the bill.
After eating we asked for the bill which we paid and gave a tip of $10. A few seconds later the server came back and asked if we could give a higher tip as this was not enough and had to be shared between all staff!! I was gobsmacked! He was politely told - NO!
We then collected our glasses and left. Got home, opened them and they had given us old stock and not the 50 year anniversary glasses we had agreed to buy! To say I’m not happy is an understatement!

Staff very nice but unfortunately I had chicken tendons which were undercooked- pink in the middle. I was offered new chicken or a dessert but to be honest it put me off and was charged full price for meal which I wasn’t able to eat.

It was our birthdays and we let them know but it wasn’t even acknowledged. We were told to just sign up for free dessert. We were traveling and don’t have a hard rock close so it was disappointing.

Food was great. Our waitress Emily was rude and disrespectful. I understand working on Thanksgiving probably sucks but is not the customer’s fault. The rest of the experience was good.

Really disappointed. I’ve been to many hard rock cafes in my 30 years of travelling (including the old New York one, which was great!)
Took friends with us and was extremely disappointed! Will NOT be returning!!!

It was good quick service but I do find it very rude when they start clearing the plates when people are still eating.
It’s like they can’t wait to get you out

I have been to Hard Rock Cafes around the world and knew what to expect. My son had never been though and I thought it would be fun. However, when they are blasting music (to be expected) AND have a piano player who is playing different music as loud as the music AT THE SAME TIME, it is just too much. We could not wait to get out of there.
Additionally, NYC Covid protocols were not followed, which made us very uncomfortable. Servers and hostesses without masks and no mention of vaccine cards… that is big in NYC, but not here, so if that is important to you, go somewhere else.

My granddaughter and I had our annual play/dinner outing at the Hard Rock. We have been doing this to celebrate our mutual November birthdays since 2013. This is the second time at the Hard Rock after seeing Little Shop of Horrors. Lola, our excellent server was attentive, brought everything correctly, and brought us each a birthday sundae and had the whole place wish us a Happy Birthday It was great! Thank you 🎂

Unfortunately wasn’t the greatest experience that we’ve had with previous visits to HRC. Seated on time but we didn’t see any server for 15 mins until a server who wasn’t actually working our table asked if we were ok.
Even by the end of our meal we weren’t aware of who actually was our server. Never brought water or anything similar.
The menu was a lot smaller than previous visits which could be down to covid. But rather uninspiring.
We were eating before a trip to the theatre but ended up clock watching.

The Hard Rock Cafe is a wonderful rock and roll theme restaurant that offers guests tantalizing meals and drinks while also playing great America pop hit songs.

In November of 2021, I brought and treated my wife and myself for dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe, and we very much enjoyed our dining experience!!!

When entering Hard Rock Cafe, my wife and I were graciously welcomed by the restaurant’s staff and we were both captivated by the extensive collection of rock and roll memorabilia and portraits of incredible music legends.

Both my wife and I found our meals to be well cooked, well seasoned and superbly delicious.

We’d also to like to acknowledge and thank our waiter, Bam for his amazing professionalism, stellar attention to details and for making sure that both us had a great time at the Hard Rock Cafe.

When traveling through Manhattan, New You, we encourage everyone to visit and dine at Hard Rock Cafe!!! You’ll have a enjoyable dining experience while also listening to sensational pop classics.
