A must place to visit for a meal. Staff were friendly and helpful. We suspect my husband has a lactose intolerance and the staff were brilliant. The manager came over with the allergen list for us to go through in our own time so we could decide what to order safely and they also advised us on variations they could do such as vegan cheese and a vegan cob for the burger. Can’t recommend this place high enough

The service was shocking, half eaten plates in front of us for over 30 minutes, drinks were more ice than juice, 4 sips and a cup was gone, 2 hour on a starter and a roll… very unhappy

This was moderate at best, for being talked about a lot I booked this as a surprise for my partner, unfortunately it wasn’t anything too special. The food was ok, the drinks were lovely but it was not very clear what glasses went with each cocktail as they ran out of the classic. Overall a very underwhelming experience.

Not a good portion of fries and not hot enough, the burger was just okay but the Mac and cheese with chicken lacked spice and was also only warm. Neither meal was a patch on those served in Piccadilly London or Old Park Lane in London. The staff were good but the food was a bit of a let down.

So very disappointed 😡booked Hard Rock Manchester as it advertised celebration for Freddie Mercury’s birthday - what a rip off. There was a live duo act playing but to be honest there was sound issues and it was quite distorted and too loud at times which is unfortunate as otherwise good. Food was dire, service was shockingly slapdash and slow. Had to ask for a fork three times before finally being given one and long wait for drinks. Had nachos to share and bbq chicken wings which was tasty the same could not be said for the mains - burger was below average, Mac&Cheese too salty, chicken tenders “ok” and the steak salad (asked for medium/rare served more medium) was so hard to cut and chewing was impossible even the slightly less cooked pieces tough as old boots. Waitress attended after first couple of mouthfuls to ask if meals ok I couldn’t answer as was too busy trying to chew through the toughest piece of meat! Persisted with almost two strips of steak but gave up. Sat with the plates in front us for an age before they cleared the table had to even ask for the bill before they did. Waitress was informed of the poor quality of the steak dish and could clearly see I had not eaten it the evidence remained on the plate. All she said was sorry about that. We always tip but definitely didn’t on this occasion. Payment made and we were still left sitting with the steak salad - never experienced anything like it!!! Definitely would not recommend and to say it was classed as an event there was very little effort - what a con felt robbed!!!!

Unfortunately all the tables were back, which did make us feel a little uncomfortable, but we did understand why this was the case. The music was turned up whilst we were there, and again we did understand, but COVID is not over, and we would have felt better if the music was quieter. Our server, Joe was great and provided a great service.

Atmosphere was good, after ordering the food, from kids and adult menus, 30 minutes later we're told the food we ordered had run out, the waiter was struggling to even get fries, he offered a refund then managed to just get fries so we sat there with just fries , the waiter offered dessert for free, waiter was accommodating but clearly there is a lack of communication between chef's and staff so was really disappointed to have sat there for so long to be told there's no food after ordering, not sure if I'd return.

They admitted that they had given our table away to other guests 30 minutes before our dining experience was due to begin and they were full so we had to wait half an hour for a table to become free. Not good service...we were on a schedule for the day and it really disrupted everything. Also hardly any staff working... we had to wait for everything for much longer than usual including service in the shop

Concierge and our waiter were just amazing, very nice and polite. Food is great, only the burgers I think could have been more juicy but it is just a personal opinion. Even most of the restrictions are gone, I think distance in between tables is not not enough, even if current situation wasn't this. However, one of the best places in town!

Not the server's fault, but there was well over half an hour wait between our starter and mains, due to a large party needing, justifiably, to be served all at once. The limitations of the kitchen were exposed in this case - but we did get a small discount on the bill and the food was great despite the pressure on preparation.

Host was quite rude and aloof.
We asked if we could change tables and said no - was by the kitchen so was lots of traffic. Person looking after us then said she would see what she could do - easily moved us to another table. Why was the host so unhelpful?
We ordered nachos to share and they were not up to the usual Hard Rock standard - v soggy.
Burgers were good but just were not as good for the Hard rock standard - not sure why??
Person looking after us was great and topped up drinks.
Overall - we did not feel that Hard Rock Cafe Manchester lived up to the brand.
