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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
