    It's a classical Hard Rock Café experience. The ambient noise was quite loud and the music could have been a little louder. Gluten free options for burgers and meals are very tasty

    Drinks and food for five people was about $260. Then add tip. So $50 a person. This is hamburgers and salad. Oh well. Everything has gone up. Paying for BROADWAY. FRIENDLY service . Danielle was funny. Lots of laughs.

    To find a spot to eat at Times Square on a Sunday night is tough, but the hard rock cafe has plenty of seating and we easily got a reservation. Behind the store front that looks small at first but takes by surprise as you enter and are escorted to your table. The food menu is surprisingly easy to choose from which you really appreciate when you're super hungry. Loved the experience.

    - Food was cold - Salad : not the same as on the card (no avocado dressing, no corn, no quinoa) - Service : we told the problem, but it hasn‘t change anything.

    Simply Awful Experience! The host was rude!! The food was worst than a fast food chain This branch needs to learn from the London one where we had a fantastic experience. This was such a disappointment! Never again!

    We had to wait a long time although we had a reservation. This was chaotic. Apparently there were not enough tables. Also, at the time of the payment we struggled a lot with our European credit and debit cards. This was uncomfortable. Food was fine, although a bit cold.

    Seated 30 minutes late for reservation. Food fairly good and friendly staff. But lots of fruit flies or gnats around our table as we ate which was gross.

    Good food, great taste and friendly service. Must say the Messi-burger looks twice the size in the picture, the shrunken version was on our plate ;) nevertheless it tasted great! Music was a bit loud but we enjoyed the time at the hrc!

    Ordered food which took about 2 minutes to come out which was a bit of a red flag, I appreciate quick service but food should not arrive that quickly in a sit down service restaurant. It was stone cold, and the chicken served was pink. We told our server this and he claimed it was the lighting, no apology or anything just trying to argue back with us. We politely asked that we don’t replace the meals and instead we would pay for our drinks and go elsewhere - it was clear service was being rushed (even though it wasn’t extremely busy or anything), The servers attitude completely changed when he realised we weren’t going to be paying a cheque big enough to pay him a decent tip, shows the happy smiley server attitude is completely fake and for show (and tips) only!

    Make your food look like the photos. My Messi burger was missing tomato, lettuce and bacon. Was half the size. Brutal. Worse hard rock I’ve eaten at yet.

    C’est le plus mauvais hard rock café Que j’ai fréquenté au monde De Paris londres ou bucarest etc Tous ont été une expérience extraordinaire Mais celui de New York a été épouvantable Cuisine très mauvaise Viande trop cuite, aucun goût Aile de poulet plein de poils et trop cuit dans la friture Les serveurs sont plus occupés à vous refiler des produits marketing et autres photos que de vous servir correctement Je n’y retournerai jamais
