This hard rock was very underwhelming compared to others that we have visited.

Food was lovely, great atmosphere, our service was fast and efficient and our waiter was lovely and friendly.

Only thing is there was copious amounts of birthdays and everyone was stopped for it to be announced. This is such a lovely idea although when it’s the third time, you’re time and conversation with family and loved ones is stopped and when you’re eating also.

I would love to see more variety for people who may not eat red meat or chicken and also more vegan options.

Very friendly staff. My cocktail was wrong one...but introduced me to delicious alternative. Food lovely. Bring back classic Margaritas. Bit noisy but you expect that in Hard Rock. Disappointed not to have been offered desert menu. Just asked for bill instead. Would definitely return.

Fantastic as you would expect with any Hard Rock. Best part was of course the staff/waiters who made a conscientous effort to be friendly and chatty. Would recommend to anyone.

Fantastic food. Been to Hard Rock Cafes all over the world and the Edinburgh one holds up. New York steak was cooked to perfection. Would recommend and would visit again.

My daughter wanted to go to this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Although it was very busy we didn't wait long to be served. The food was delicious and both my daughters loved their guitar plates.

Burger was dry! Fries were sharp. Barbecue sauce was hot n spicy a good point.

The apple cobbler is my fave

Prices are flying high though☹️Not good! Music on videos not good either- where’s the Scottish music- simple minds, snow patrol, etc etc...

Staff at door were very approachable and were chatty (craig and not sure of the other mans name). Food was great. Customer service was good. A bit busy but noise level was okay. A nice little gift shop attached where we managed to get a key ring to add to our collection.
I would definitely go back.

Pre-booked and was seated very quickly on arrival. Our server was attentive and our food arrived quickly. They signed us up to the loyalty program too. We were full so couldn’t manage dessert.

Food was alright, only problem was we purchased drinks with glasses and never actually got them and were long away from the restaurant before we realised the waitress had forgotten them.

Been to Hard Rock all over the world. Server was great and all staff good. Server bringing food got two dishes mixed up which we only realised when we started eating and had to switch.

The food was lovely but the restaurant was far too noisy. Have been in much better Hard Rock venues. Edinburgh was by far the poorest.
