The food was amazing but we waited awhile for drinks, had to ask for things. It was shift change. The server was very inattentive. The food was fantastic though.

If you wanna eat the best burgers in town, this is the place to go. Christopher Goller and his team are running this Hard Rock Cafe in the best possible way.

Overall the trip to this restaurant was good. However, I did put in a reservation 2 hours ahead of the time we would be there. We got there maybe close to 10 minutes before the reservation (aprox 10:38) and still had to wait. We were told to give them 10 minutes. At 12:00 I returned to the check in and asked how much longer it would be as we had a show to get to and time was a factor, hence placing the reservation. I was asked how many in my party and I answered 5, but we had a reservation and we've been waiting nearly a half hour. I was then given a ticket to be seated. Who knows how much longer we would have been waiting had I not asked. Other than the beginning frustration, everything else went well. The food was good and we all had a nice time.

We were a party of 8 & it was 4 of the persons birthday’s. I had added this to my booking. On arrival it was pointed out to me that they were aware. The whole experience was amazing!!!! We were all very impressed with the service & food. If anything it is noisy but that’s part of the experience. Everything is reasonably priced. Thank you for making everyone’s birthday’s in the party extra special.

Compared to the Hard Rock cafe in Rome, NY place is not atmospheric at all. I have the feeling that I went and ate well. There is no atmosphere, what should be in Hard Rock Cafes. Take the example of Rome!

Always enjoy a visit to Hard Rock Cafe wherever we go in the world however this was the most disappointing. We booked it because it was handy and next to our hotel after travelling in from the UK. We had told them in advance that it was our daughters 3rd birthday and this was even printed on the check in receipt and the lady at check in mentioned it so I assumed they would do something special and exciting but nothing at all happened. For the first time in all of our visits to the Hard Rock Cafe the food and service was only average which is a shame as every other cafe had always been exceptional

Normaly we are very satisfied with Hard Rock Cafe. In New York it was overall not so good. Food was normal, not good. Drinks were poor, glasses looks not clean. A little bit disappointant. But next time better. A day before we tried to order something at the bar but we were not helped. Poor performance of the bartenders.

Atlas was incredible! He was super friendly and warm with his approach. We got to know him a bit and got well acquainted. We didn’t feel rushed at all (even thought it was a busy Saturday night!) He took his time with us and gave us exactly what we needed.

Our entrees were a little on the cool side. I ordered fajitas because I saw someone in a table close to us order them and they were sizzling! Unfortunately mine were not. But other than that all of our food choices were good.

We were seated right away at our reservation time. The service was good an attentive. Some food was very good. The nachos were the weak link. While very plentiful in size, and the nachos themselves were tasty, both of our upgrades of meat were terrible. We ordered one steak nacho and one chicken nacho, and the steak and the chicken were so dry we pushed it to the side and ate just the nachos. I would recommend the nachos, just DO NOT pay the expensive upgrade fee to have chicken or steak.

Told waiter we had to make a show, but he totally disappeared & food came out 25 min later. Aside from that, all burgers we ordered were either over or under cooked.
To boot, never came back w/ a to-go box we asked for, so we had to leave the food we didn’t finish.

We arrived a little early and we could sit at the bar of the restaurant, all people were very friendly.
a little minus was our table location which was in the corner near the passage of all the waiters/waitresses comming out of the kitchen.

We had pre-booked a table for 5 people to celebrate a 40th birthday, but were given an awful table - basically a table for 4 with an extra seat added on at the side with people having to try & get past us. We asked for another table but were told we had to join the queue again. There was also no atmosphere in the part of the restaurant we were seated. Food was good, but not a good experience for our celebration.

Booked a table a few days before visit, was shown to our table within 10 minutes of arriving. Did not wait too long for our order to be taken or food arriving. In all we were there about 1 hour. Enjoyed meal & would

Typical hard rock. Food good, service ok. If you’re a hard rock fan you have to visit once but there are better restaurants in Manhattan.

Breakfast buffet was pretty basic. Some fruit pots, pastries, yoghurt, fried potatoes, scrambled egg, turkey sausage and bacon. The cereal was prepacked tubs that you put milk into! Toast was make it yourself. The plates were cold which in turn made the 'lukewarm' hot food just go cold very quickly.
You can order pancakes, waffles or french toast as extra to buffet. You order your drinks from server, so no fruit juice that you can just refill. Service was OK but not amazing.
All in all not great food or service for 20 dollars plus tip a head! Wouldn't recommend or go back.
