We came here for my friends birthday, I gotta say, the quality of the food wasn’t great. The burger crumbled apart and it was cold. I felt too embarrassed to say anything because it was her special occasion... I wouldn’t rush back. also the server took forever to bring drinks... when there was a bar upstairs? It wasn’t worth my money at all, feel a bit robbed.

Service was average - they seemed to forget us for a while

Didn’t ask if we were okay or needed anything, we always had to get the waiters attention.

Once ordered, food came quick and was good. Order the special cocktails to take home the limited edition glasses were told they wasn’t available once the drinks arrived!

We spent our first date at Hard Rock Cafe Manchester. The place was just how we remembered it and as the evening went on we were reminded back 20 years to the 6th October 2001. The food was amazing, our waitress, Emma, was attentive but not intrusive and we could have a laugh with her. We will definitely not leave it 20 years before we visit again

Generally, service is very good and the staff Rock! I ordered the Legendary Burger but it was just good. They don’t offer their special sauce anymore which is a shame. The atmosphere is nice but very loud. The table I was offered is small in a tight space next to the stairs. Overall, a nice experience but not a good value for money.

Menu is one page this used to be a lot more choice. The chicken flat bread starter I could make better myself at home. I normally come hard rock before every concert in Manchester but i will be looking at alternative restaurants in future it was really disappointing. Staff were lovely can’t fault them but as a venue this has gone down hill.

Reduced menu is disappointing; absence of fajitas is scandalous, and New York strip steak was not available. Otherwise, we’re long-term fabs of HRC.

I’ve been to better Hard Rocks around the world. The thing I found most annoying and disappointing is the food was being brought from the kitchen behind customers heads. It only takes one slip and your covered in food. The waiter was bringing empty glasses back to kitchen on a tray and a young boy pushed his chair out to go loo and pushed it straight into the waiter glasses nearly went into the air.
The bring of food and drink to and from the kitchen shouldn’t be restricted by seated customers. I think the manager should take another look at the table lay out leading into the kitchen.

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.
