Poor food, which is understandable given the fact that it touts classic American cuisine. However, the bad service was inexcusable, and we received a lot of attitude from our server when we sent a drink back.... the guitars are cool but it's not worth the trip. No wonder it's shutting down!

I hadn't been to Hard Rock Toronto in a long time. Food was great. My seating requests were done and our waiter knew our theatre tickets weren't until 8 for a 515 reservation so he did not rush us. Will come back again.

Went to the Hard Rock Cafe pre theatre dinner. Great food, wonderful, friendly, quick service. Window seat overlooking Dundas Square, great place to people watch and view all the neon signs. The cheeseburger and fries were the best! Hot, tasty and delicious.

Great spot food was good however if you are looking to engage in conversation with your company it is very difficult to do so as the music volume is very loud.

The service was excellent and the food was great. I was pleasantly surprised as I figured being a large chain the place would be marginal at best.

It was truly an amazing first time together with my boyfriend. However, the music was pretty loud and it was hard for him and I to communicate well and to the server. Speaking of which, she was amazing! Gave her the best tip of the night for sure

We were on the Mirvish Package deal. The food was exemplarity and our server was efficient and pleasant as well. The only drawback was the noise level. Between the music and being surrounded on 3 sides by tables of 10 kids each (or more!), it made any conversation impossible. I understand that it cannot be controlled at times, but a smaller more intimate room for the "older" crowd would be an improvement.
I must repeat, the meal itself was excellent

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the venue. Being part of a theatre package we expected less - but we got more. A great job and wonderful atmosphere - will definitely come again.
Rock on - you deserve t=it.

it was my 50th birthday , I felt so bad service was very very bad, the add 18% tips for embarrassment. Buger king would have been better.

the bill was over 600.00 so don't think I was cheap.

I made reservations online and received a confirmation for same but when I arrived I was told they didn't have my reservation and would have to wait for a table. I found the waitress to be very unprofessional in the way that she handled the situation.

I've attended the Hard Rock Cafe socially and for business meetings on several occasions. I've always found the service is always exceptional with polite and attentive staff taking care of you and you never want for anything or feel your time is being wasted. The food is very well made, well priced and tastes excellent. They are also good at ensuring you are taken care of within an hour which is important for client lunch meetings.

Limited menu, but what they do, they do well. Service was great and worked within our timeline to get to the theater. Was not our first choice when making this reservation, but will be our first choice the next time we are in the area.

We had the Mirvish dinner package, which is a special menu. The menu was small, choices were limited but everything on the menu was delicious. The waiter was great, service was quick, always around, does exactly what you ask for, can't ask for a better waiter.

much better experience this week than what i had two weeks ago. Manager sat us and greeted us and was very good.

personal preference, about 50% less dressing on the caesar salad, i will request that next time, otherwise food was good.

Sangria is awesome.

The only issue we had was it took awhile to get our dinner and we had to ask where it was. Not necessarily the servers fault but felt he should have been more on top of it.

We had been to a Hard Rock Café years ago and only went this time because of proximity to the theatre however to our great surprise the food, service and view onto Dundas Square at night added up to make it a wonderful evening. Thanks.

Was my first time in that immediate area and was taking my teen aged grand daughter to see Matilda and the Eaton's Center, so I thought this might be the perfect restaurant to go and have our dinner before the show. It proved to be a perfect spot for us and we thoroughly enjoyed our entire day! We got a lovely table by the window, the food was good and I felt the service was great. We started out with one server and was transferred seamlessly to the next. Both servers were very prompt and attentive. I would definitely go again and would look forward to trying something else as well on the menu and would recommend it to others. Thanks for being part of a lovely experience all around.

Service was really great. Seating was cramped which mostly likely was the contributing factor to the noise. Didn't feel like yelling in order to talk to my wife. Food is always great.

Brought my wife and my one year old baby for a casual Saturday lunch. Everything was on point, the staff is very friendly and when the waiters notice that we had a kid, they brought us a kids menu and some colouring books. Recommended.

My husband and I had an early dinner at the Hard Rock Toronto before a concert at Massey Hall. Contrary to some previous reviews I booked through Open Table and had no problems. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and given a nice table by the window with views of Dundas Square and Eaton Centre. Our server Martin was amazing. Very personable and knowledgeable about the history of this location. Great selection of drinks, beers. I had the fajitas and husband the burger. Both were served hot and tasty. Several other diners close by were also going to the concert and were served timely to get us to the show on time. Great location. We will definitely come back again soon and hope Martin is our server again!
