Absolutely amazing experience here. I'm. Coeliac and they are the first restaurant I've eaten at to make me feel completely safe and understood. The memorabilia is awesome and the staff were all amazing. Food was gorgeous also. Really couldn't recommend enough.

Think our server was called Tom. He was very chatty, helpful & attentive. Large menu choice & particularly liked the cocktails during happy hour

Our table wasn’t ready for approximately 30 mins even though we booked. The bar service was very slow. Our waitress was amazing so informative and attentive. Unfortunately the food was below par which was a real shame as we have previously loved other Hard Rock restaurants.

Perfect food, a fun waitress and a great evening. 5 adults, 1 child. One gluten free diner and all catered for.
Main courses, desserts and coffees which we could not fault at all.
We visit a lot and will of course be back.

We had a wonderful evening. Kris, our server was fabulous, nothing was too much trouble for her or the rest of the staff. The food was delicious, hot and served quickly and the atmosphere was welcoming and friendly. We will definitely be going again.

When we arrived the service was good we were seated and asked if we had been here before, it felt like nothing was too much trouble however once we had ordered our food there was no care or attention.
I asked for some ketchup and my husband asked for mayonnaise, we are still waiting now.
Not one person came up and asked if we were ok and if there was anything they could assist us with.
Just a shame as usually we receive such good service. It was busy but enough staff walked passed, just an acknowledgement would of been nice.

Early lunch at Hard Rock ready to do some Christmas shopping.
We have eaten in HR all over the world and Manchester is up there as one of the good ones.

Great service and a really well presented and clean restaurant.

I booked this table 3 weeks ago only to be advised on our arrival that they were completely out of barbecue ribs which is the main reason we were visiting this establishment. The waiter was extremely disinterest and impolite. The food we ordered took over an hour to arrive and was cold, tasteless and burnt. I would not recommend this particular Hard Rock restaurant.

It was my birthday so had 20 something number 1 child and teenage number 2 child with boyfriend and my wife all have different food and music tastes but all enjoyed the atmosphere, food and music. Great service from Jessica the waitress who was really helpful snd friendly. Can’t wait to visit again.

It was a busy Saturday night, full of concert goers, but our food was delivered over an hour after our reservation time and having to chase twice - clearly forgotten. Staff were apologetic, friendly and made considerable concession on the bill, but we were only able to eat about half before having to run for the concert.

Very noisy due to a rod stewart group. Music was too loud and did not bear in mind those who wanted to eat and have a nice evening.

Found it pricey for what we ordered steak was around £25 and I got mine burnt my partner enjoyed his ribs . Dessert menu there wasn’t much choice mostly chocolate choices. There was kids running round like it was a playground hiding under tables. I found the waiters friendly thank you

Excellent pre gig food and drinks visit to Manchester Hardrock Cafe. Welcomed at the door and taken upstairs to our allocated table. Drinks ordered immediately and when they arrived shortly, we ordered our mains. The restaurant was packed due and had a great vibe. The food arrived after a reasonable t8me as it was busy and all four of us really enjoyed it. More drinks ordered and the boys had deserts which came within about 5 minutes. Highly recommend this place and we will definitely be returning. Cheers.

Absolutely brilliant service! Food and drinks were amazing. We had the table we had requested and they even put balloons on the table as it was for a birthday. Ice cream sundae with a candle was a lovely gesture too. Thank you so much Hard Rock Manchester

Used to love going here but the service has become awful. For once we were shown straight to our booked table. Asked for a children's menu, waited at least 15 minutes till we asked the waiter for the kiddy menu again. Waited at least an hour for our burgers. These were very pink, nobody asked if we wanted our burger rare. My grandson asked for a milkshake, it never came. After another hour we decided to leave, we had to go downstairs to find a waiter as upstairs there was not a single waiter. We were not the only table to get frustrated. My grandson asked that we never go back there.

I had visited this place in the past and had a good experience. Sadly, I can't say the same on this occasion. I ordered one of the burgers and it wasn't fully cooked right. The staff did kindly send out another one and gave me a discount on the overall bill but all in all it was enough to put me off going there again in the future. I feel that for the price of the meal the quality wasn't good enough and that there are many other places that offer better quality for the less the price.

As Manchester has a history of local bands, it seems appropriate to dedicate the cafe to these and not feature other world wide bands

We had to wait till 6:30 before we were seated (table was booked for 6:00). I did have to have a little moan to the lady, who was getting stressed, that we had booked the table for 6oclock.
Our server, Andy, was lovely. He was also very busy but found the time to speak to us and was very polite. Our food was great, served quite quickly.
This was a meal for my husbands 60th birthday. A weekend away to Manchester (we live in Birmingham). A trip to the Coronation Street set in the day and then dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. The waiting around did put a bit of a damper on our visit.

Even though we had booked a table via Open Table ahead of the evening, unfortunately we had to wait 45 minutes to be seated. However the staff gave great service once seated and really looked after us.

Very busy night due to big concert on close by but staff worked really hard and coped well and were friendly despite the obvious pressures of the restaurant being so busy.
Food was nice, decor amazing and had a buzzing atmosphere.
