Well there was clearly a lack of communication as the staff sent our food to wrong table and they offered to redo my partners and not mine during this covid situation which is sketchy in my opinion also my steak came out well done and i ase for medium rare
And by the time it came to the bill we looked at it and they tried to charge us twice for my partners meal so they were either not on the ball that or trying to charge me and my partner twice

Due to having allergies and being a vegetarian hard rock staff went beyond to accommodate what I could have. I really can not complain with the level of service provided. Thank you

Visited during the pandemic and everything was done as safely as possible. The girl on the door was brilliant and the service was great. Menu was a reduced choice but still enjoyed what we had. Absolutely love the strawberry daiquiris here would definitely recommend. So nice to be able to hear each other speak as well, as normally can be quite loud, but not complaining as you know what to expect when you visit. Always love the Hars Rixk whatever country we are in.

When arrived at the restaurant there was a queue in the pouring rain but people were being turned away - the restaurant didn’t look busy so I quickly checked open table for the next availability to see tables available to book straight away so I went ahead and booked there and then. On being greeted on the door it was confirmed that they could see our reservation but would not let us in without confirming the phone number this transpired to be an old mobile we could not remember so we were being refused entry - we were eventually allowed in but this was not a great start. The restaurant was barely half full so no idea why people were being turned away. The food was the usual Hard Rock offerings, I particularly liked the shrimp on the burger and the cocktail selection was good.

The restaurant advised me that I had double booked. I tried to apologised and said I must have not cancelled my reservation but it was a genuine mistake and I had still showed for my lunch. They advised that as there were two appointments they were going to put a black mark against my name and if it happened 3 times I would be barred from booking again.

Not impressed - clearly it was a mistake and I still showed for my lunch. Note approximately 90% of tables were empty and it didn’t impact them whatsoever, they just wanted to have a go. No flexibility with rules whatsoever.

Food was tasteless... There was no music...They changed the menu and now some good plates are missing....It seems like the Hard-Rock managers are unaware of the fact that the food scene has changed since the '80s, and now the competition offers much better quality for lower prices...

Burger was bland as was the atmosphere. I expected there would be some kind of music even if it was low and in the background and the whole overpriced experience was underwhelming.

Very limited menu choice, no ambience. Having dined in Hard Rock Cafes in several countries we didn’t have the same experience and didn’t think that your ‘experience’ was value for money, sorry and very disappointed.

Bit of a disappointing visit as usually one of my favourite brand hotels/restaurants to visit. Completed understand with current circumstances, there is restrictions in place in kitchens etc. However the menu was ridiculously small with only a few options. There was also only two cocktails on that menu to choose from, so we assumed this was due again due to restrictions. Disappointing to then see another table be provided with a larger drinks menu and we’re then able to order from a variety of cocktails- one of my usually favourite things about the hard rock. Standard of food was also lacking with quite bare nachos (again a usual favourite of mine) and a very greasy burger. Service was a good as always but overall a very disappointing visit which leaves me wondering if I will visit this site again.

We were disappointed with our meal, we didn’t eat it and left after 40 minutes and no one asked us why. I have emailed to complain as pay £80 for 3 burgers and 3 drinks is expensive for poor quality food

The standard of hygiene was very poor, visibly dirty glasses for water and food stuck to the plate that the napkins were provided in.
Manager indirectly told us via waitress that they would try to do better
