Staff were really friendly and the food was great
Thanks Jason!! Come and rock out again soon.
Food was not nice, burger very dry, the bun tasted like it was a day old. Salad just had a lot of rocket and way too much dressing and not much else. Cocktails were disappointing $18 for ice and juice. First time going to a hard rock cafe and our table was right next to the bar with waiters constantly pushing past our chairs. We will never go here again.
Awesome kids eat free during holidays promo!
Thanks for the awesome review. Hope to see you again soon.
The burger was not very good as it tasted too dry and the beef was plain. Too big a meal as the burger was huge. Chips recommended. Music awesome.
When booking we communicated in the online form that it was an ocassion to celebrate for our daughter's achievement. Unfortunately nothing special or any heed paid to our purpose of the celebration in Sydney. We had been to HRC's in other countries and they were well organised. If you cannot make a small special difference to an occassion then you better remove that provision from your online booking request.
Awesome, great food and service, cocktails were great value
Thanks Matthew!! Hope to see you again soon.
I had a fantastic time! I was after the American Chain Experience and I got it! The food was truly mediocre if not downright confusing! The Guinness along with a half pound medium well burger. Wow. Nothing made sense but I loved it! I felt like a rock was in my stomach all night. The wings on the other hand were outstanding. Classic Franks Buffalo, a ranch dressing, and 6 sticks of carrots and celery. The drinks were insanely overpriced, but again, delicious; The Hurricane in particular reminded me of the cherry/orange/pineapple Tampico. My date had a Java Lava with spicy fried onions, pepperjack, siracha mayo, again wilted arugula, and a fried jalepeno on top. His beverage, the Southern Rock, which was essentially just a hillbilly whiskey sour topped with Sierra Mist was especially sweet and seemingly devoid of any alcohol. Our server Alan was fantastic! So attentive and really kind. Overall, the meal was 3.5 and the experience was 10/10.
It was very cold outside and no heater next to our table.
The view was fantastic.
We had to wait sooooo long for our meals. Spoiled the experience.
We are the “guys” who visit every HRC and collect the hurricane glasses when in a different location. Booked in SYD as per usual. Gave order. Starters arrived, cool, mains arrived 5 mins later. No offer to take back, just plonked on table. Girl said she was ending her shift. Complained to a male floor manager, he said, “what do you want me to say? Sorry? I’m sorry!”. And walked off. Pu5 a real dampener on the evening. Never look for discount, comps, or freebies, but always nice to be offered as it shows the place is serious about amending the experience. Paid bill, went to leave, saw female floor manager, she was really apologetic, said they could and should have done more (ie cook a fresh meal). Previous male manager came over, I told him that his customer service was poor, he said “I’ve been in since 12! (This was 8). Considering we were looking forward to the who,e thing, HRC could and should have done better.
The best views, the best drinks, the best food.
Great location & legendary Hard Rock service! Highly recommended!
Thanks for the great review! Hope to see you again soon.
Food was as expected; consistent with other Hard stock Cafes. Waiter wasn’t the best and came across as a bit patronising over a misunderstanding with our order which didn’t sit well with me.
Not the same standard as it used to be.
Been in better hard rock cafes
I loved it , and my friends too. Also, the view of the fireworks was awesome!! Thank you!
Thanks Roseli!! Hope to see you again soon.
Unfortunately it was below expections, and sadly on consensus of the 6 members of the party a below average experience. The presentation of the food wasn't great, for example the very small handful of veg looked even more inadequate on the oversized plates. The steaks did taste great to be fair, although both were very rare, not med rare as requested. The burger was stated as being very dry sadly, and although the bun was gluten free which can be dry, it didn't excuse the overall desiccation of the dish. We opted not to try the desserts given the experience of the first course.
Hi Daniel, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm, sorry to hear your experience did not meet expectations. I have passed your feedback on to the team so we can do better in the future.
We enjoyed it however due to it being very busy it took a while for drink and food orders to be taken
Thank you for your feedback.
Food, place, drinks, ambience soooo good but service not too much. Our Asian waiter was a little bit disrespectful, not too kind and not helpful at all.
Tutto ok, come sempre...!
Staff were amazing and willing to help anyway they could. Leven right down to letting us know they were swapping shifts and introducing who was taking over. Food was good
Thanks for the review Natasha. Hope to see you again soon.
Jay was excellent and provided excellent service. Food took a while to arrive, kids were really hungry and upset due to this.
Was very busy for Father's Day and we had to wait a little while for our food but it was understandable and great deal for the family with kids eating free Saturday and Sundays from the kids menu!
Unfortunately we waited ages for our mains and watched our the wait staff walk around in circles with it while we tried to get their attention. The burger was dry and tasteless. The kids hot dog was horrible and didn't get eaten after one bite. We have been many times and this time was no good.
Food was okay but not great. Our order was misplaced by the waitress who was lovely and other than losing our order was great.
I paid $18 for a mojito which was the worst I’d ever had, it came in a highball glass and did not resemble a cocktail in any form. I was very disappointed in that.
Our table was booked, yet we still had to wait.
Was okay once we were at our table but the negative far outweighed the positive
Everything was so good! I have enjoyed my time there very much.
Hi Simay, thanks for the awesome review!! Hope to see you again soon.
It did not match our expectations..we orders Nachos and was worst ever.
Thanks for making us to wait for long time even after ordering and kept waiting for seat
Great service! food and drinks were fantastic. Definitely will be back.
Thanks Lauren. Look forward to having you back soon.
Great food, excellent service! We will definitely be back.
Possibly biased as the Hard Rock Cafe is probably my favourite restaurant in Australia. It was fantastic - especially the service!
I’ve been to a few different Hardrocks, and this one has to be my least favourite. Food wasn’t very good at all. Not worth the money we spent
Excellent food, fantastic service. Definitely a good place to visit
Thanks for the review Sharon!! Hope to see you again soon.
Will count this night out as my 16th July birthday dinner, lol.
Leffe Blond with a super salad.
Cleaned up our dessert in no time as well ) hehehe
Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream, Oreo Cheesecake & an Apple Crumbly for them. All were magnificento...
Had lots of fantastic times with this couple & still a lot of posts to upload from the past as well.
I'll get there eventually, lol.
When I have time off in Cairns maybe )
Thanks for the awesome review. Hope to see you again soon!
We were so happy with the service and food. Its located in a beautiful area on the harbour.
Will come again
Thanks for the great review Sarah! Look forward to having you back soon.
prima ambiente, essen und getraenke!
im vergleich mit anderen HRCs etwas zu enge bestuhlung im restaurantbereich .. und dadurch sehr stoerende gespraeche von den nachbartischen (eher australische eigenheit, da nicht nur hier aufgefallen)
Food was as you would expect at Hard Rock Cafe but the waitress was rushing us which spoilt the experience. She presented us with the bill and took away dessert before we’d finished. We had only had time for two drinks throughout the meal. Thank goodness we didn’t order a bottle of wine she’d probably have taken that too ! It wasn’t as though we had taken long eatng our meal and there was still one other table eating and about 15 people at the bar when we left. We are on holiday and we’re disappointed we could not enjoy time with our teenage children having a fun meal.
I had ordered a pina coladà cocktail and it came out watery, I sent it back and asked if it would just be taken off the bill rather then a new one, the waitress said that was fine. A new drink had come out and I explained to this waitress about what had happened, she was really argumentative and made my partner and I very uncomfortable, saying that it wasn’t her fault, it felt like she was putting all the blame on me
Food was cold, chicken dry, wasn’t enjoyable at all, waiter Ethan was lovely however
I hadn't been to Hard Rock for years in Sydney, and it was great when it was located near Kings Cross. It was still good, the family enjoyed it. Compared to the Hard Rock in New Orleans, Sydney was fantastic! Thankyou.
For the price the food was poor. Stall bun on my burger.
