Too expensive for the type of food served.
Our daughters med/well done steak had blood running from it, and the replacement took 15mins to arrive and o e end was so hard it was inedible. Shocking for the price

Entering the establishment it wasnt too crowded and everyone was nice. I'm not sure if our hostess noticed my Motley Crue shirt or it was just pure coincidence but she sat us right under the Motley Crue memorabilia. Our food came in big portions and was delicious, the ambiance was great and we were sat in a corner booth so there was hardly any loud noise. Since it was busy our waiter was juggling multiple tables so it was hard to get his attention but he was still very attentive with his time.

My only complaints were that the ladies restroom weren't as clean as I would have hoped. There was tissue all over the floor and water all around the sink area. My friend also ordered an alcoholic ice cream shake and it didn't come in a big glass as shown in the menu. However the waiter mentioned they ran out of the glasses and he gave her the biggest glass they had available at the time.

It was understandable that they were busy so it wasn't that big of a deal.

Would definitely go back! :)

We had a very long wait of over an hour for food finally had to ask the server to get the food to the table because we had 3 young kids to feed and a long drive at least an hour to get home. Music very loud could not hear anyone at the table. My daughters Cobb Salad came with very few greens waiter took it to kitchen and then it never brought it back!! It only came back when I demanded a manager take over. It was so stressful to eat there, we will not come back ever!

We waited for a long time for the server, and finally complained to the waiter next table. He took orders for us and mentioned that he will talk to the manager and serves free desserts. A waitress came but not right away. One of the Cocktails was wrong. My guest ordered a Cobb Salad but received a Steak Salad. Of course, she never mentioned about free desserts.

It was just ok. The food took forever and with 4 hungry children that was frustrating. They were out of what I ordered and I didn’t get notified for 10 minutes. I did like how the place is huge and convenient to the El Capitan, but quality is just ok. Waiter also seemed super frazzled.

Our server was great. Part of our order was cold and the rest of the orders were close to warm and not the temperature it was supposed to be. They had no hot sauce for the wings and they only had o e kind of hot suave for the table which we really didn’t like.

We have eaten at other restaurants around Hollywood Blvd and have not had a very good experience. We were not sure what to expect at the Hard Rock Cafe. I am glad we made reservations because they were really busy. We had an excellent experience form the minute we checked in all the way until we walked out. Everyone was so friendly. Our waiter provided excellent service and made our experience even better. Our food was delicious and the dessert was to die for. I highly recommend the brownie sundae. This will definitely be our go to restaurant every time we go to see a movie at the El Capitan theater.

We had a bad experience this time but have not in past visits. My husband cut his finger on a slice of glass in his seat. The waiter just said sorry and never informed anyone. Should have informed management. Nothing serious but enough that he needed to ask for a bandage to stop the bleeding. My food was cooked wrong and had to be recooked and then forgot a couple things. Waiter didn’t give me my receipt and we were running late for a concert at the Bowl because it took longer than usual that night even though not very busy. Checked my rewards the next day to show that what was recorded was around $20 less than our bill. We paid cash so seems like he pocketed the amount and recorded less than we spent. I reported this to corporate and hope they look into it.

Had such horrible customer service upon arrival. Our reservation we made thru the app was not honored at the restaurant so we ended up not even staying. The hostess didn’t consider we had already made the reservations in advance and said they couldn’t do anything about it. Make sure if your going to this place to call and confirm directly with them or else your showing up for nothing...

We were Seated in the middle of a tribute band rick concert.... the whole place was incredibly loud, no table would have been enjoyable. We didn’t think it would be romantic dining but we definitely didn’t expect to feel like we were seated next to a bunch of speakers. We could not even talk to each other or discuss what we were ordering. I went to the bathroom and it was filthy and without any towels. I went back to the table and decided to leave. We had not ordered yet. The next day I received notification that we were penalized by the HARD ROCK for not showing up for our reservation. Good thing Open Table asked for our side of the story.

We didn't realize it was the Hard Rock birthday celebration when we visited. It was a bit much with girls dressed in gold dancing everywhere. Also there was a D.J. Playing hip hop music instead of rock music during the slider eating contest which was very load and annoying. But our waiter, Cameron, was AWESOME! He was funny, friendly, and gave great service.

I've gone to several different Hard Rock Cafes and always get excellent service, this time was no different! Made a reservation through OpenTable, arrived about 10 minutes early, but got seated right at our reservation time. Hard Rock recently redid their menu and it is amazing! Highly recommend!

It was ok. I enjoyed the Hard Rock Cafe atmosphere but the food was a little over-priced for the quality. I’ll still go back because it’s a fun dining experience but this time around the service was pretty bad. I’ve had better experiences at this location in the past.

This Hard Rock Cafe is large and spacious. Not as much memorabilia as some others.
Good was good as always. Also the drinks.
Service was mostly good apart from a long wait for my second drink order.
A band played whilst we were eating which made the experience even better.

We had a great night at Hard Rock and the ambience was as expected and the service was very good. However the restaurant was very cold and we had to sit with our jackets on throughout our meal even after mentioning our discomfort. Secondly one of our meals was delivered wrong and it took over 20 minutes to be replaced by which time, we had all finished our meals.
The manager was good enough to take the meal off the bill. Apart from this, we had a very nice evening 😊

We arrived for an early dinner to celebrate our sons 9th birthday. We were greeted by an arrogant rude man who advised us we hadn’t requested a booth when reserving so we could not have one. I queried this and he said he would see what he could do and then turned and started complaining about us to other staff. We waited 5 mins listening to his rant and were then taken to a booth seat. We noticed there were 8 empty booths so wondered what the fuss was about. Our waiter took 30mins to take our drink order then we waited another 30mins and had to flag a waitress down to take our meal order. Food was good. No one came to ask if we wanted another drink. The whole time we were there the 7 booths stayed empty.
Terrible staff, no customer service skills. Regret choosing this place for a special occasion as there was nothing special about it.
