Fantastic burger as always, recommend BBQ bacon cheeseburger, really tasty. Great service, very friendly & helpful staff.
It was a busy night and due to having a minimum menu the items I was hoping to get where running low, ordered my starter and main for the waiter to come back and say we are out of both items had to make another choice to which there was only 2 other things that I could have, but overall service was spot on and the server could not have been anymore apologetic enough, food we ordered was spot on and I could not fault it in anyway.
What’s going on with the nachos now?
There are not enough places like this and there are not enough hard rock cafe. It is always my go too place to eat if I get a chance.
Never felt more at ease, especially during a pandemic. Restaurant was very clean and everything was very well organised.
Overall experience was good - the starter was excellent - the mains were a little dry (both chicken and salmon) but edible - good selection of drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic
Really good, food was fantastic
Excellent service and very thorough safety in place. Didn’t affect the atmosphere at all. Had a great time.
Temperature taking before entering, staff fully discussed New rules on wearing mask etc putting me and my family at ease. Good food and service would highly recommend
Perfect place to eat and the shop had lots of nice stuff in it, the music was perfect and the service was quick and easy.
The only criticism I have is that I was a bit shocked to be told when we sat down we only had the table for an hour and a half, this should be stated at the time of the booking. I also did not appreciate that we had to rush our drinks as we'd gone over the hour and a half by 5mins. I appreciate we are living on different circumstances just now but we should not have been made to rush our drinks.
Good meal and doing everything they can to keep people safe.
The food was not as brilliant this time as used to be.
Chicken club sandwich was quite tasteless and my kids hamburgers as well
Lunch and cocktails. Very enjoyable. Limited cocktail menu
Great experience and our waiter achilleas was fantastic asset to the company.
As always the chicken wings were amazing
Great food and excellent customer service felt very safe and protected from covid. Only one small problem the main menu is very limited.
Fantastic meal at the Hard Rock Cafe on Friday. Covid precautions were excellent including a full briefing before going in which was so much more comprehensive than most places! Food was amazing, cocktails were excellent. Would highly recommend!
Great atmosphere and memorabilia, friendly and knowledgeable staff who were happy to check if our order could be made vegan, it could! (Moving mountains burger with vegan bun and cheese).
Great evening, great food and extremely attentive and pleasant staff.
Amazing food and really good staff. Had a lovely family meal 😋
Warm, friendly staff. Brilliant atmosphere. Food - plentiful and spot on burgers. Would definitely recommend a visit!
The service was exceptional during the current Covid climate. They have exceptional levels of checking that made us feel as safe as we could.
We had a fantastic experience here. I came with my two children who enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The service was excellent and our waiter John went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The safety measures that were in place were great! We will definitely visit again! Thank you
Great COVID infection control measures in place, we felt very safe and well looked after. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food wasn’t great but not bad either, consistent with every HRC we’ve visited. Cocktails delicious. All in all a fab visit with particular reference to the thoughtful and very thorough social distancing measures put in place and the great staff.
love this place, one of the fav places to visit. :)
Always enjoy a visit to my most favourite eating place, once again you didn’t disappoint, large portion of Nachos to start of with followed by ma MAC n cheese which I love, my husband and two teenagers enjoyed burgers with fries, all this washed down with the lemonade/strawberry/basil mocktail, can’t wait til our next visit, thanks again HRC.
Great food but staff think they are above everything. Food was just thrown down. Ok I know in this Covid world they have to be so careful and ensure safety for all but there is a fine line between little hitlers and helpful staff
Lovely service and atmosphere, and the food was fine - just as much as I’d enjoy something basic I made at home. That’s kind of the problem though because it felt like the quality of some of the food itself was low/cheap.
The chicken wings were absolutely perfect though and a lot of it was still really enjoyable.
The food was excellent disappointing no cheese cake 🍰 as it’s my favourite thing everyone in party enjoyed the money off was a bonus !
Not the best Hard Rock we've been to. I told them it was my birthday and the weren't interested at all not even a happy birthday. Food was good service was a little slow and not totally friendly.
Had lovely meal and service was great. Deffo return next trip to Edinburgh x
lovely family meal we all enjoyed the food thankyou
We were not made to feel welcome at all, no-one greeted us until we had walked in the door, then were told loudly to stand back till we had sanitised our hands and had temperatures taken, confusion over who was taking us to our table, reduced menu due to Covid-19 which was fine, no drinks menu? Waiting staff ok, very noisy due to young children crying, love hard rock, but will give it a miss for a while.
Lovely meal, temperature checked all customers before entry. Lovely waitress who was extremely helpful with our daughter who has food issues.
Food was hot and delicious. Would definitely recommend to all.
Lucie was our waitress, very helpful poliet waitress nothing was to much trouble.
Very nice food and staff, the shrimp was excellent
Had a great evening visiting hard rock cafe with by young nieces the waiter was friendly and really good with them as they are only 8 and 10 years old service was fantastic food was great and value as we were visiting on a Tuesday with the government eat out to help out
Food was good, could have had a better seat. Value ok with a discount
I was very impressed with the procedures put in place to prevent the spread of Covid 19, staff were vibrant and energetic and always willing to help
We all were very happy. good NY Steak and steak strip salat
You pay for the brand, but there is way nicer restaurants at a fraction of the price in Edinburgh.
Menu seemed smaller than what was listed online. Portion sizes were good. Toilets were so basic I thought I was in a wetherspoons. It was good to experience, staff were lovely but all in all I wouldn't recommend.
