    In town with family. Service was great. Drinks were ok. The kids grilled chicken dish was a tad over cooked. Hamburgers were not well done. The Mac and cheese dish was just ok. Steak salad was good. Nice place to eat. Would come back again.

    My daughter and son and I visited the Hard Rock Cafe in Washington DC last week and it was a great experience from start to finish. Great food, good service and of course the atmosphere was amazing!

    Looking sad and old unfortunately. We enjoyed the visit but needs refurbishment. Make booths.
    Hard Rock Cafe - Washington, DCResponded 7 days ago
    Hey there!!! Thank you for visiting the café and we are happy you enjoyed the visit. Our last remodel was in 2015, which seems so much longer than 8 years ago. Booths are number 1 on the request list so fingers crossed we will be able to accommodate the request at sometime in our near future. But, we hope you decide to stop by and hang out with us again before then! -Angela Thomas, Assistant General Manager

    Always visit a Hard Rock but was disappointed in the food for the price. Chicken tenders were so thin and appeared microwaved. Overall, it was like a Burger King meal. Disappointed. Loved the ambience, location and service. Food left a lot to be desired and price was high.

    The service was the best I’ve had in years, and we dine out several times a week. The food was going to be late due to a large party, but that was communicated up front, and it didn’t even take a long time! The server was perfectly attentive without being intrusive and it was a very pleasant evening. The manager even came by to introduce himself. Felt like customer service really mattered here. Thank you.

    Nice experience, seated in what ended up a “private room” away from all the middle school trip groups. Server Wesley went above and beyond getting what we wanted and it was better than I remembered 27 years ago when I was here last!

    Thanks Todd for the wonderful review! Thank you for being a raving Hard Rock fan throughout the years! Keep Rockin!
