Nothing vegetarian apart from sides, plant based burger shown on website menu but not an option in restaurant.

Food has been maintained at good standard and good portion. Friendly and helpful service. Lively ambience.

Menu selection is not varied enough though. Will be great with more choices.

We love the Hard Rock Cafe and was nice to revisit before it shut again for lockdown. Food is tasty and great atmosphere.

We had a fantastic time. Our server John was brilliant with the girls and good fun. First time there for my partner and girls (aged 7 and 11) and they loved it. Will definitely be back !

While the food was nice and the service was wonderful, the price range is awful and there isn’t a great selection. I wanted something light and there wasn’t an option for that unfortunately. It was okay but Edinburgh definitely has better restaurants with better value for money.

Food was amazing, staff were very professional and very helpful. I am a vegan and the waiter catered for this very well, explaining the meal I was buying to me.
My only criticism however was how ambience, as the restaurant was very quiet despite it being 5PM.

Great friendly service. Food good and reasonable price. Reduced menu was sufficient choice. Actually preferred the quieter ambience than “normal” times.

The burgers were nothing special, quite average for the prestige hard rock is known for. The meat was little overdone . Burger on a whole was dry cleaner, no sauce inside only on a side .

Waiter asked for sauces while serving plates, I’ve asked for ketchup and mustard And he forgot, had to ask another member of the team for sauces what took around 5 minutes altogether while my dish was getting cold...

Not impressed, won’t be back.

Meeting up with my sister-in-law for the first time in months and needing somewhere safe, it’s the only place I would go! Greeted at the door by the wonderful Paige. She enquired about our day, made us feel very welcome. Temperature was taken and hand sanitizer as soon as you walk in. Maria on clean team was very visible. Waved and eye-smiled then continued to clean everything. Verek our server was extremely friendly and attentive. Always checking to see if we need anything. Christos the manager was lovely. It was a pleasure to spend part of our day with him and his fabulous staff.

Tracey, Craig, and Klaudia were all really really excellent :) really improved the dining experience for us. I would say the food is too expensive and there aren’t very many vegetarian options but in terms of the staff they are truly 10/10

Visited during the level 3 lockdown, food, cleanliness, staff were all great, they still had music on in the background which was a bonus, but pricy though it was worth it.
