Hard Rock Cafe - Sydney
Party all night long by Sydney’s beautiful Darling Harbour waterfront when you host an event at Hard Rock Cafe Sydney. Our full-service event venue is perfect for all special occasions, from album launches to business meetings to Christmas parties.View Private Dining Details
My experience here was very hit and miss - the service was friendly and helpful, the food was acceptable, but the atmosphere was somewhat poor, not so much from the background music, which I quite enjoyed, but more from screaming kids at nearby tables and loud talking customers!
The water views are lovely.
I’d return to eat here, and to try their decadent sounding desserts but probably better during the week when it’d be quieter!
There was racism in your restaurant by the hall staff who served us. How come this happened in Hard rock cafe? I don’t believe that. Im Asian. He saying something Chinese to me even Im not. He tried other Asian table and looked so bad for me. It doesn’t matter if the hall staff making customers fun or not. I never go back to the Hard rock any more. Thank you.
Young man on the bar was extremely rude and unfriendly so we only ordered from him once before asking for our table early.
Food was terrible, ribs were dry as was chicken
Was not asked if we wanted any more drinks
Waiter disappeared and we waited along time for her to come back, ended up going to the main station to ask if we could pay and was then asked to tip????
We will not be back as this was the last time we thought we would try in the hopes it had improved, it’s just getting worse.
Sorry but the service was terrible at lunch time .
We love hard rock and we always go for dinner but the service at lunch would make me not want to go again . We were told we would be waiting a while to be served because they were understaffed . It was valentine day so I don’t understand why they wouldn’t have more staff . Took ages for the waiter to take our order I actually had to call them over . Then they gave my husband the wrong drink he asked for a coke and they gave him berben and coke .
The food I will say was nice but way overpriced I paid $30 for a burger !!!
I know it’s sydney but I expected more
Staff were very friendly. And recommendations were outstanding
Our waitress went out of her way to accommodate and make us feel welcome. The atmosphere was great and it was a highlight of our holiday in Sydney. The food was top quality and delicious!
The service was by far the best thing. Burger was excellent as in other Hard Rock Cafes that I went before in different cities.
Always good food, you won’t leave hungry that’s for sure. Good selection of beers, and plenty of Rock ‘n’ Roll Artefacts to check out. Especially like the guitar collection and Nikki Sixx’s stripped Suit.
Always love going to Hard Rock for dinner when have a free weekend.
Service and staff excellent, sadly most of the food was hot spicy and didnt say, but is good food as always. I still recommend it.
We have visited numerous hard rock cafes all over the world however Sydney hard rock didn’t rate highly compared to the others. Poor atmosphere, poor gluten free options (BBQ pulled pork sandwich gluten free option included no bun !! ) and I couldn’t use my hard rock rewards card !
Really great service!
Had the sampler of all the entrees between two people and it was filling. Skipped mains and had the Brownie Sunday which was nice and very filling.
Food was terrible for the price. The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting.
Service was ok but slow.
Brilliant place to go reminese about Rock music. Relaxing time with friends. Tasty menu and nonalcoholic fruity cocktails 🍸 to enjoy. Finished off with Fireworks every Saturday night at 9pm.
The venue itself lives up to its hype and the service staff we good but the food itself was a letdown
The food was ok but definitely not worth the price paid. It was way overpriced & only cost that much due to being part of the Hard Rock franchise. The view was pretty & service was adequate
We were eating our starters when the main meals came out which we sent back. The same mains were there dishes up ten minutes later and two were cold. One burger was under cooked. Service was not great as we wanted to order more drinks but due to limited waiting staff we couldn’t. Having been to many hard rocks around the world this was by far the worse for food and service. A real let down
Music to loud couldn’t have a conversation in restaurant
Bonus ice cream sundae for birthday boy with an announcement to entire restaurant that a birthday was happening! Thank you for a memorable experience.
Service was amazing! Food cake whole order was correct. Staff were great sitting us in a booth which was great fir my 2 year old and to have the pram against it
Very impressed by the extent of memorabilia. Not as many menu options as I expected but there were plenty of choices in the way of price ranges. Delicious and filling meals with some interesting ingredients! Wonderful atmosphere and very helpful and friendly staff. Overall this Hard Rock Cafe exceeded my expectations.
We hardly recommend Hard Rock Café but beer was not cold as usual, which doesn’t change my opinion about this amazing place.
Awesome fun for the whole family burgers are tasty salad was filling best of all bottomless drinks woohoo
May be good for young and energetic, too noisy, cannot even carry a conversation in the restaurant. Burger was delicious, but the ribs were very disappointing, meat was over cooked.
The least ”cosy” Hard Rock I have visited. Raw interior
You know what you get with Hard Rock, always enjoyable and friendly staff!
The food was very bland as compared to USA
Great staff, tasty food nice atmosphere, order the jumbo combo good value with a few extra sides, you won't need to order a $ burger.
It was a very poor experience as we had twice asked to be moved to another table to get away from the bitter artic breeze coming from the air conditioning we asked for it to be turned up for some heat again to no avail. We made a point of telling the manager in charge again we were just given a very lame excuse. We are always very fond of the Hard Rock Cafe and have visited quite a few destinations but this has changed our minds somewhat
When I arrived, I got my table so quickly and the waitresses were very nice and always ready to help and give perfect suggestions. My friends and I really enjoyed it!
I usually love Hard Rock! Took my husband for his birthday with the whole family. Paid $42 each for a New York strip steak for both my husband and I. We were disappointed. Both asked for it medium, came out rare. Was going to ask for it to be cooked more but I couldn’t get the waiters attention so I just ate around the edges. When he eventually came to collect the plates he only cleared the opposite end of the table, and we had to ask him if we could order coffees at some point as we could never find him. Like I said, I’ve always been a big fan of hard rock but I was sadly disappointed especially given how expensive it can be.
Not one of the better Hard Rock cafes I have visited. Food is reasonable but it is a very noisy restaurant with limited memorabilia.
Enjoyable location for a team dinner. Something on thr menu for everyone.
Original booking was for 2pm which was accepted. I was very excited as was taking my team out for special Christmas celebration and a thank you for their hard work. They (Jess) then called 2 weeks later wanting to change booking to 1pm due to storm damage. Said we could stay until 2:30, seated on balcony and first round of drinks on them. Got there the man in charge said we could only stay until 2 as they had a major party coming in. We were seated inside, rushed by staff, treated poorly and no first free round. Did not deliver on their promises they just said things on the phone so they could book the big party. Having been a major supporter of Hard Rock for many years and a T-shirt, glass & badge collection from around the world (not to mention the memories), will never set foot in one again. Talk about service that treats you like a second class citizen. Extremely disappointed and turned what was to be a special afternoon into a non event.
The live musivmc was fantastic. Especially the 320 band.
200%, great restaurant with great location, love the foods, service was amazing. Just a bit noisy... but i am surely will come back
The food was so below average im sorry . The cheese macaroni was out of a sachet pasta packet. Really really disappointed for such an iconic restaurant.
Booking was cancelled due to weather .... very disappointing
Had the best customer service and the staff were excellent
Forgot about giving us the bill we waited for almost 2 hours after finishing meal before we asked the manager for the bill
