The Kitchen at Hard Rock Hotel Ratings and Reviews
My family enjoyed this restaurant. The menu was diverse with fresh unique twists on many staples, without being overdone. The prices were very reasonable for the quality and the tourist destination. The service was very good - the waitress was patient with all our questions, and the evening was capped off by one of the staff showing my son some fun magic kids. My adults and children wanted to go back there for dinner again.
We were given an option between ordering off the regular menu and the buffet, so we chose the buffet. It was not good. The food was in chafing dishes that stayed covered, so everything was soggy. The desserts were displayed nicely but some of them needed to stay cold and they weren’t. We would never go back.
We were staying at the Hard Rock for our anniversary and my birthday.
The night we went for dinner our service was good, and the food and drinks were great.
The next morning we went for breakfast- Unfortunately the food was low quality and the service was actually kind of poor. It was a buffet style breakfast and usually I can go back for more than one serving. I actually chose not to go back or order any food after going to the buffet. The server was absent most of the time after bringing our drinks. We didn’t get a coffee / drink refill until the end of breakfast. Just not a good start to the day.
Oh well, we now we know to go elsewhere : (
We specifically came to the Kitchen for the character dining but it was a real let down. The two characters were woody & homer. When they had gone round once my son lost interest when they came round again. He also really wanted to see a minion. With it being universal I wouldn't have thought that sending a minion would have been too difficult? I hate to say it but this wasn't a patch on disney.
Advertised as a character breakfast between 8-11am and photographs show a range of characters. We had a reservation at 10.30am and were informed that not all breakfast foods would be available because they close it all down at 10.45. That is 15 minutes earlier than you can book breakfast in for!!! We booked specifically for a character breakfast and yet there were no characters AT ALL!!!! What a waste of time and money. I will be contacting someone for compensation for misadvertising a product. Very disappointed that universal, hard rock hotel and the kitchen couldn't deliver on what they advertise!
We scheduled the buffet breakfast with the characters. It was disappointing there were only 2 characters - Woody and one Minion.
The breakfast was delicious and the service was excellent so no complaints there. As for the cost, it was not bad considering what was offered and the resort location.
It was a bit confusing finding the restaurant. We went first to the Hard Rock Cafe, not realizing it was separate from the resort where the restaurant is actually located. The hostess told us that happens all the time, so it was apparently not just us.
We ate at the character breakfast at The Kitchen on Aug 1st. Our waiter was amazing! The Elvis French Toast was delicious! Bacon was hot and crispy. Huge selection of breakfast options. My son got his picture taken with Kevin, the minion, and Woody Woodpecker as they came around to every table. It was a great meal and we had a great time. Can't wait to go back again on our next vacation to Universal Orlando Resort.
Ate here for brunch. Food was excellent. Service was very disappointing. Had to ask for everything from the server. At one point, had to track down the server in the restaurant for a request as the server never returned to the table. If you go for brunch make sure you are early enough to go through the lines as the minute brunch ends, all of the food is removed very quickly.
