Open table is supposed to be a site where you can make reservations
Hard Rock Cafe take priority seating only which means our 6:30 turned into 7:15 seating!
You should advertise that on your website or reword it somehow
If we needed a priority seating I would have booked elsewhere
I suffered an embarrassing night because of that
Not going back there and I might contact places myself instead of using your site

2 out of 4 meals were enjoyed...but one burger was undercooked, and the salad we had was OK, but fairly bland and nothing special. Fair overall...won't be hurrying back.

The restaurant is far too loud, you can’t talk without yelling. The food is overpriced & what we ordered was extremely poor. The attendant was ok however seemed more interested in the people he knew dining there. We will not return to this restaurant.

Absolutely disgusting behaviour by staff who refused to serve us as reservation was for main course which we did not know until we ordered.

Took the staff a long time to come get our order, or to even offer us drinks to start. We ordered a bottle of wine and two ciders, but they took over 20 minutes to be brought to us, and even when they finally came out we were missing a drink. Took them another 20 minutes to bring this missing drink to us, I had to go ask the bar for it.
Food was overpriced for the quality. We could've gone to our local pub for that quality and the price would've been much fairer.
Expected a lot more for a company of that size.

We booked ahead and were provided with a table immediately upon arrival. We had a special deal so were reasonably happy with the price; we would not have liked to pay the full price. The food was good, but nothing spectacular. The restaurant itself was very nosy, I don;t like to yell in order to be heard. There was a slight misunderstanding with the bill, and when queried the waiter fixed the problem immediately with not fuss at all.

enjoyed our birthday meal but the food could have come out hotter as the burger was lukewarm and so was the pork ribs

Was very disappointed that a menu item was made unavailable unless you ordered the largest menu item. This was an item that made me decide to book in the first place otherwise I would have gone elsewhere.

always consistent, good food, great service and great environment.
Waitresses however sometimes seem to 'rush' through the ordering process which makes you feel like you have to hurry.

Fairly expensive for what it is.... it’s like TGI Friday’s but with louder music....

Food was okay but had a better 5 star lunch for less....

I orderd plenty of food thinking whatever was left over I could take home. I called the waiter to ask for boxes to take home and the bill. He brought the bill over, had me pay (I left a 15% tip) and then after I paid I was told they have run out of takeaway boxes. Pretty disappointing as it was only around 1pm.

The last time I went to Hard Rock it was amazing- this time the meat in the burgers weren’t the same as last time. A little on the dry end and presentation was a bit messy.

We booked early for a quick mean before an even at the Sydney Convention Centre and were most displeased that despite booking we did not get a table until well after 6pm, some 20 to 25 minutes later than the booking. The food was good and service sound once we were seated, but unfortunately I would not feel that I could visit again on a similar occasion for a quick meal - and what is the point in booking of you don't get a table for the time you book?.

Our tables was outside which was squashed against the wall (hard for 4 people to sit around). The next table sat a couple which was so close that I could hear everything, the guy's chair kept hitting me. The waiters are in a hurry to take your order, but if you want something else they are not to be found for ages. My last experience was dining inside and with better seating.

Very disappointed with this Hard Rock Cafe. We have eaten at various Hard Rock Cafe's all over the world and this would have to be the worst. The service was terrible, no sooner did we finish our meal that the plate was being taken away whilst eating our last mouthful. The meat was dry and overcooked, no flavor and after receiving our bill, we had to wait more than 15 minutes to even pay. We ended up having to go to the front counter because we were ready to leave and then wait another 10 minutes for the waiter to take our payment, as clearly he was the only one that could process cash!! Will never be back

Great evening out, friendly staff and food was good! Hard Rock as always on the pricey side but I got one of the 'international burgers' and it was delicious! Went for a get together reunion and the waitress was very understanding in how long we took to order due to this.

Pre booked a table for 6:30pm, on arrival was given a pager and told to wait in the bar until a table becomes available. But when looking around the restaurant there were several empty tables! By 7pm when still weren’t paged for our table! Why have a booking system if you don’t get a table when you want it! Service was average as well. Nothing excellent about it compared to the other restaurants around the world

Unfortunately we did not have time to enjoy a full meal this time, but excellent cocktails and a sample platter of hors d'oeuvre made the trip worth while, along with the Hurricane glass :).

Asked to speak to the Manager on the night to ask about my booking for 7 people and why our table was smaller. I found Manager to not be understanding and instead rather defensive. He said my complaint was the first he had ever received which made me feel like an idiot for just voicing my opinion. Had he just been understanding and changed his arrogant tone I would not have cared. I'm a big Hard Rock Café pin collector and have gone to Rome, Berlin, Barcelona, Malta, Cancun , Hollywood, Vegas, New York and had a great experience! Yet here in my home country was the worst experience due to Manager's arrogant tone. Wont be going back here

I took my son there for a birthday lunch and we both really enjoyed it. We sat outside on the balcony and enjoyed our lunch. Service was very friendly and fast. The food was delicious with large servings so it was definitely good value for money. I hadn't visited before in their new location but will definitely be back. My son just loved looking at everything and really enjoyed his day..thank you for helping to make his day special.

We didn’t have a great experience at Hard Rock Cafe. We ordered burguer without beetroot and we received them with beetroot. The waitress offered to bring us no spicy Mac cheese and it was spicy. She should have said that she would ask for reduce chilli but she said that she would ask to cut it. Imagine if my husband was allergic. I’ve been to others Hard Rock Cafe before and I am really disappointed with the service in Sydney.
