Really nice, thank you! Ethan was really nice and helpfull. He even opened the shop for us to buy some nice t-shirts and drumsticks.
This place used to be one of my favorites, but has gone way down. No longer table service at the bar, have to go up to purchase each drink, but there is never anyone manning the bar. I ordered some chicken tenders off of the menu that advertised came with chips and sauce. The chicken came out and they said the chips would cost extra. Then I asked where the sauce was, and they said that would cost extra also.
Dear LloydH, thank you for taking the time to share with us your experience and we are very disappointed to learn that it was such a poor one. Please would you drop us an email, or let us know what time you were in the venue on that date, as we very much need to address some poor training. And invite you back for the Tupelo Chicken Tenders which, since the new menu, absolutely come with fries and 2 sauces! We look forward to hearing from you soon.
The burger was dry. It crumbled apart as soon as I took a bite. The table was dirty. Had crumbs on it when I sat down. In COVID times, I expected better. Also, to napkins were brought with the silverware. I found some paper towels on a server station.
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for taking the time to share with us this feedback. We are disappointed to learn that you had such an experience with us, and absolutely agree that this is just not good enough. We would encourage you to send us an email through our website to give us specific details, so we can ensure to correct all the points you shared with us. We look forward to welcoming you back, with a proper Hard Rock experience. Stay Safe and Rock On.
Great staff quick service :) overall very satisfied with my meal and experience
Dear Maria, thank you for taking the time to share with us this wonderful feedback and we are delighted to know that our team made sure your special day was a great one! We look forward to welcoming you back again, soon, for more of the fun and live music of Hard Rock Cafe Sydney!
The burger was very dry and tasted like cardboard, the ribs were insanely salty.
The waitress told us half the menu wasn’t in stock and overall it was a horrible experience and I won’t be coming back or telling anyone to visit Hard Rock Cafe at all
Dear BenG, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, and we are sorry to learn that we let you down on that special day. It is clearly a trend on that one day, when we reached and went beyond our capacity to produce our highest standards of food and service. We can assure you it is not in the least our normal, nor acceptable, and we would encourage you to reach out via email on our website so that we can ensure to understand the full scope of all the issues you face.
Food was pretty good, but unfortunately not as good for the amount paid for. The place itself is super cool with all the collectables though. Overall a pretty good experience.
Dear MissGirl, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are delighted that we could make your visit a good one, and are determined to make the next one awesome. We encourage you to check out our live entertainment, it really does add to the atmosphere and environment and that is where the value is added to your visit. Stay Safe and Rock On.
We really didn't like it. We wanted to to take our kids and to re-live the vibe. The food was not great, my daughter was incredibly disappointed with the size of the kids burger, which was essentially a slider with chips. The adult meals did not live up to their pictures either.
Granted we only went for the atmosphere, but this was pretty none existant, it was left behind a long time ago. We all walked out and said, well we will never go there again.

Food:the sliders were ok. But the BBQ bacon burger was terrible. They used a top bun for both sides of the burger which became incredibly soggy on the bottom. The meat patty had no flavour and there was next to no sauce on the burger.
Service: The staff member that served us was quite meh and seemed like she didn’t wanna be at work- no smiles or warm greeting, monotone voice while talking to us.

Great view of the harbour, amazing music with outstanding wait staff and excellent food would definitely recommend going and the prices are very fair.

The band was awesome...! I am a massive U2 fan, and the Rattle and Hum band was fantastic...! It was so great being able to go out again and see live music and we would love to come back and see them again...!

Dear MathewD, thank you for taking the time to share with us this amazing feedback. We love the fact that you came out for the live music and had such an amazing time! We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Stay Safe and Rock On.
drums & base where up to high and that made the lead singer sound like she was working too hard, but a great band and over all great, just to loud
Dear Julied, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We do appreciate the feedback, as it helps us to fix things to make your next visit even better, which is always our goal. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Stay Safe and Rock On!
Great place to go. Must see the right music that suits you...heavy rock not our scene however just a nice place to go...so happy a venue is putting on LIVE music. Going ever week to see bands.

Seeing the inxs show
Dear Anonymous, thank you for taking the time to share with us this feedback. Whilst we appreciate the opportunity to improve, we would ask you to send us an email with more details of why the mixed rating, so we can ensure to fix any issues before your next visit. Stay Safe and Rock On.
The starter arrived after the main meals.
We asked to sit outside, we were placed on a table with no view even though there were other tables available that were socially distanced from other tables.
Barely finished chewing and plates were being cleared.
Not a great experience, won’t be coming back.
Dear EricaM, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, and we are disappointed to learn that we let you down. We are sorry that you were unable to get a seat to your preference, and can assure you that we do try to cater to our guest requests, though it is not always possible currently. "Pre-bussing" is a Hard Rock standard, and apologies if it felt we were clearing the table before you were ready. It should be a question asked in this country, as a courtesy.
Was a great experience for me, I’m only 17 and have no one my age who shares same passions for rock. But it’s great to experience a setting of it and great hospitality feeling like I’m at home.
Dear Jake, thank you, and from our core, we really appreciate that you are onboard with our reinvigorated direction of LIVE music at Hard Rock Cafe Sydney. We love that the full experience impacts on a new generation, and we will always be happy to welcome you back. Stay Safe and Rock On.
Meals were great sizes and the band was really good. Took our two kids and it was their first experience of a live band at dinner. We all loved it.
Dear DonnaR, thank you for the amazing feedback. Definitely one for sharing with the whole team today! We love the you loved the entertainment and we cant wait to see you back again for the next big live gig we have on stage! Stay Safe and Rock On
It was literally OK although the service was very good in the sense of the care and attention
Dear sams, thank you for your sharing of feedback with us. We greatly appreciate the effort put into this review and, if possible, would encourage you to send us an email (through our website) with details so we can look into improving our standards before your next visit! Stay Safe and Rock On.
Great live music
Dear DavidB, thank you for sharing your feedback. And especially about the live music. Something that is close to our heart. We absolutely delight in knowing that bringing the live music back to Sydney is having such a positive effect, especially during these tough times. Stay Safe and Rock On.
I was an overall bad experience to be honest 👎🏻👎🏻
Dear NJT5075, thank you for taking the time to share with us your feedback, and we are sorry to learn that your experience was so poor. We absolutely value the feedback on how we can improve, and would appreciate if you can provide details so as we can make the necessary changes. If you can share with us via our email address on our website. Stay Safe and Rock On.
I have not been to the Hard Rock since it was located in Darlinghurst and from memory the food was always good. So after many years we decided to take our 8 yr old son tthere for the 80s Trivia night because he loves everything 80s and thought it would be fun. We ordered Nachos and and a selection of burgers. We were very disappointed. The nachos was very average ( I have had better at a shopping centre food court) Our burgers were very dry and bland. Seriously with all the great burger places around now I think Hard Rock really needs to up step up a bit. I have never given a bad review before and hate to now as I know restaurants are really struggling at the moment with COVID but I was actually shocked at the quality of the food. My sons Pepsi was flat and my Bumers was too. Will not be back .
Dear RCIP, thank you for taking the time to share with us this feedback. Whilst it is very disappointing to learn that we failed to give you a proper Hard Rock experience, we genuinely appreciate you giving us the points on which we let you down so that we can improve. We do find it disappointing, and take it seriously. And we hope that you can see fit to send us an email through our website so that we can drill down and fix the issues you have mentioned, and accept our thanks for the detail
The food is not what you expecting like the buffalo wings very salty , and the ribs have no flavour.
Dear DebbieC, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. Some of the wing sauces can taste a little salty due to the hot sauce base we use. But there is no excuses for the ribs to have no flavour and we will take this on board and do better for your next visit. Stay Safe and Rock On.
Great regular live music, good service and nice views form balcony
Dear DavidB, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We love that you had a great time, and take your feedback on board as a challenge on where we need to improve for your next visit. Stay Safe and Rock On.
Staff were fantastic.
Food was great.
The band was also awesome.
Thanks to staff and management
Will definitely be back
Dear MarieB, Thank you for sharing this amazing review. Definitely one for us to share with the whole team. We are delighted to know that you had such a great time, and will be looking forward to your return visit! Stay Safe and Rock On.
Shame the front isn’t utilised anymore it has cut the atmosphere away and view isn’t as spectacular, chicken tenders tasted off but did get free dessert which was nice
Dear Knotty, we are sorry to hear that you felt the quality of our Kids Eat Free items was not great. We can happily assure you that we use exactly then same supplier and product, prepared slightly differently for our free kids food as we do for the adult items. Nevertheless, it is great to know the team took the feedback on board and sorted you out with dessert We will take the feedback and share with the Heart of House team to ensure your next visit is spectacular. Stay Safe and Rock On
Great staff great food
Band at the time was on point
AdrianoV, thank you for the amazing review of Hard Rock Cafe Sydney. It is definitely the review we will share with the whole team, and encourage them to keep up the amazing standards. We look forward to your next visit and maintaining the same fund and entertaining atmosphere! Stay Safe and Rock On.
Very friendly waiter, unfortunately do not recall his name but he was great. He finished his shift mid-way through our meal and let us know who would be looking after our table from then on. She was also very nice.
Dear JennB, thank you for taking the time to share with us this feedback, We are absolutely delighted to know that our team looked after you so well. It's actually quite a difficult thing to know without the exact time of your visit which server it was, and we are very happy to have that problem! That said, we would also noted that you were not overly impressed with the ambience, and we apologize for that and assure you the problems we had with the music system are rectified!
Our server (I think her name was Vicky) was very lovely and great at making us feel comfortable and well looked after.
Dear KarinaN, thank you for taking the time to share with us this amazing feedback. Her name is Vickie and she is one of our super special servers, that most of our guests are delighted by! We look forward to welcoming you back to visit us (and Vickie) again soon! Stay Safe and Rock On.
Great venue with fabulous atmosphere, great food, great service.
Dear SarahM, thank you for taking the time to post this awesome review. We are absolutely delighted to know that you had such a great time with us, and can not wait to welcome you back again soon! Stay Safe and Rock On.
Excellent food, friendly staff and great live band
Dear Anonymous, thank you for taking the time to share with us this awesome review. We love the feedback, and will definitely be passing this on to our band and our team. We hope you have checked out the January line up for the rest of the month and that we will see you again soon! Stay Safe and Rock On.
Good food and drinks. Very attentive service, and nice atmosphere.
The only thing was that previously the event said that it would finish at 2 am, and finished at 1 am. We bought some drinks before and we waste our money.
Dear NicR, we are sorry to hear that this was your impression of the night. We did in fact stop the DJ at around 1:30am, and we can also confirm that the last guests left the venue at 2am. Please let us know on your next visit what made you feel like we closed at 1am, so we can improve on that for our next late night party! Stay Safe and Rock On,
Spent the best NYE in a longtime there welcoming in 2021 and nothing was too much for the staff, much love xx
Dear MFlo, thank you from all our team for this review, we know it was a tough NYE for everyone, but we also felt that ours was the best party in Darling Harbour, and are delighted to read this feedback. We genuinely, and warmly look forward to welcoming you back again, before next NYE! Stay Safe and Rock On!
Always a a fave!!
Fun and friendly
Dear Anonymous, thank you for sharing this awesome review! We are so happy to hear that we rocked your world into 2021, and we are looking forward to seeing you again SOON! StaySafe and Rock On.
Great staff and overall a great night out, the sliders where a little dry
Dear DavidG, thank you for taking the time to share with us this feedback. We do believe you shared the slider feedback at the time and the kitchen received same. We will ensure that this does not happen again, and encourage you to try the sliders again on your next visit. Stay Safe and Rock On.
Nice meals, but over priced. Charged us full price for childrens meal even tho it was only plain pasta
Dear melp, we are so sorry to hear about this experience. We absolutely should have made some discount based on your children having only plain pasta, and would ask that you contact us before your next visit so we can ensure we rectify this error. Stay safe and Rock on,
The second time I came people the people where very nice and asking how the food was and making me feel welcomed. This time no one greeted me or asked me how the food was made me share a meal no what i was promised and didn't make me feel welcomed the lady manager seems annoyed I came back the guy opening the was was the only one who seems nice. Also i was setted in the back I could watch the show so I left early.
Dear HelenL, thank you for the feedback, we always appreciate hearing from our regular guests. We can appreciate that you were disappointed with the seating, though you are welcome to request a different table and we would accommodate if possible. The free food you shared is a mixed starting platter we usually recommend for 3 or 4 people, so we dont feel we shortchanged you on the free starters.
