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.

Lando was our server, fantastic, friendly, and on top of our service 100%. I’ve been to over 20 HRC’s and this is my first time here and favorite! 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.

My family and I had an excellent dining experience here. We were seated right away, the food was delicious (the burgers, especially), and our waiter was very attentive. It was fun to walk around the restaurant and see the special items from rock history displayed on the walls. I highly recommend dining here! We definitely plan to come back next time in town.

Amazing food, fantastic service and incredible atmosphere! We had a great evening and loved everything about this restaurant.

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!

I had a fantastic experience at the Hard Rock Cafe. Our server was extremely attentive and courteous. The manager made a point to ask us how everything was as well as speak to us for a while. The food was a 10/10. Hot, fresh, and delicious! The vibe of the restaurant was great! Music, food, and fun for the entire family. Exceptional experience! Thanks to the HRC team for making my visit a memorable one!

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 bought t-shirts in the shop and put them on immediately!

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.

Food and staff are the best! Was pleasantly surprised that the inside has a great layout. Not just for tourists, it’s a treat to enjoy food, drinks, the memorabilia, and to watch those nostalgic, awesome music videos. Ordered the Norwegian salmon and chicken wings, and they were delicious. Will be back to try other dishes.

We made the reservation about an hour in advance because we didn’t know how busy it would be and boy was this the BEST FOOD and BEST SERVICE we have ever experienced. Our waiter was so kind but also hilarious. Within 5 minutes of being there, the manager came over and introduced himself and was super friendly and kind. Our food came out fast and was so fresh! Absolutely stellar service and the food was amazing. I will absolutely be back for more. Thank you so much Hard Rock Hollywood!!

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.

We were greeted with great hospitality at this Hard Rock Cafe location in Hollywood. We used Open Table to make a reservation before going to the restaurant, and we were seated right away and the waitress was thoughtful enough to bring us to an emptier area so that we could have a more enjoyable experience. All the staff was incredibly speedy and considerate, and our food came quickly. Would definitely return to this location again 👍🏼
