This was my first time going to a Hard Rock restaurant and I have to say it met my expectations. It’s a great option if you’re in the Hollywood area and need a good bite while walking around the tourist sites or before a concert/event. They have music memorabilia hung around the restaurant and each booth has a mini flatscreen that plays various music videos, so great ambience. The staff was very friendly and the food was tasty. My only critique was the buns compared to their excellent burgers seemed very plain, like grocery store brand type buns. But that’s more of a corporate issue I’m assuming and not this restaurant location’s fault. The burgers themselves were cooked how we asked and our server (Hannah I think was her name) was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed.

Food was good and service also. Was really surprised how quiet it was on a Monday night. Having been to many hard rocks over the years they are always busy regardless of the day. Also really drafts as main door open blowing into the restaurant. Apart from that great food and would recommend visit. Perhaps on a Friday or weekend if you want more of a buzz.

We arrived about 10 mins late for our reservation due to traffic but the hostess was able to seat us right when we walked in. Our server (Tess) came by immediately to take our drink order and gave us menus to review. Our drinks (excellent margaritas) arrived shortly after and our food order was taken. It wasn't more than 10 mins later when our food arrived. I'm mentioning time a lot because we were trying to make a 6:30 p.m. play at the Dolby and were concerned we would be late. No concern necessary as we enjoyed our drinks and meal and made our show with time to spare. Thank you Tess for the great & speedy service, the bartender for the excellent drinks, and the cooks for the delicious food.

I had show tickets at the Dolby Theater, so this was a great place to dine beforehand. We had several food allergies at our table and they were handled very well. The food was delicious. I had a gluten free bun on my burger that was so good I questioned if it really was gluten free! Our server was super nice and on top of his game. I liked that we were not rushed thru dinner and had plenty if time to eat and visit. I will come back here again!

This is a great place to dine prior to going to the movies or Dolby. Food was fresh and moderately priced. The salad entrees were amply, we could hardly finish it. The chicken fajitas were very tasty and again, a very filling meal. We did not have dessert, however, those pictured in the menu looked amazing.

This is an update to my March 13, 2019 Review. I was contacted by "Jimmy," the General Manager after my review on my experience. He was very concerned and said he would "Make it right for me."

My wife and I had not had a chance to go back until last night for our 4:30 PM reservations (2-23-20) and I did not have the opportunity to contact Jimmy prior to this reservation.

This time was much different than the last experience we had. The music was at a good level, so we could actually have a conversation at our table. Our Waitress (Kaylee SP?) was great, food was great and "Shane" who we believe was a manager came to check on us, without knowing issues we had before.

We will defiantly be back!!

We had a reservation and were told to wait ten minutes by a rude female at the desk.
We finally were seated but service was so slow we could not eat before we had to leave for Dolby theater performance. Faitas were fair, ribs were great as were hot wings. Margaritas were terrible! Big disappointment. Also music which I liked was too loud to talk. Maybe wrong place for people who want to talk, or not shout. As a fan of hard rock music, I hoped for more.

Shane came around to check how our service was, and made us feel very welcome. We arrived before our reservation and they put us in the front of the line. I would recommend HRC Hollywood, and using open table for a reservation.

The food and drink menus have a good selection, portion sizes leave you full and satisfied, and the staff are so friendly and have such an infectiously positive attitude. Plus having a walk around the place leaves you in awe of all the famous items and history on the walls.

Definitely a must-visit for anyone in LA!

We were visiting LA from Minneapolis and my daughter was auditioning for a university musical theater program. After touring the Walk of Fame and peeking in at the Academy Awards set-up across the street, we ended our evening with a gloriously fun evening at the Hollywood Hard Rock.

We took a family member in from Peru to sight see in HollywoodZ. He’s never ate at Hard Rock, our experience didn’t disappoint! Albie was our waiter he was great recommended the pulled pork sandwich, delicious. As we were sitting we noticed the managers walking around and introducing themselves, they really made you feel comfortable and welcome. Music was a plus we heard a little bit of everything would live to come back for Karaoke nights. We were a party of 6 with reservations at 6, came Ina md our table was ready for us.

Great service. Great food. Great atmosphere. My son and I opted to dine at the Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood. The entire experience was great. Food portions were generous and all the staff was super friendly. My dining partner had the ribs. When the dish arrived we were both slightly taken back by the large portion size. I had the chicken sandwich with bacon and cheese fries - they were both very good. The manager came by and introduced himself and made sure everything going well. The waitress engaged in some light conversation which was nice. The bus boy stopped by to clear the table and joked around a little. Everyone seem to enjoy genuinely enjoy working there and it shows. The staff attitude directly impacted the level of service provided. Highly recommended.

Would have preferred knowing that an entree in the USA is a main, not an appetizer as the first dish that came out, the buffalo wings was perfect and enough for a main - we couldn't finish the other dishes and I wasted a lot of money unnecessarily as a result. But, that did not detract from the experience as the service is very friendly and the music was awesome and I only wish I could come again but alas there is no Hard Rock in my country.
