Had a quick bite and drinks before driving to AFAS Live. Friendly service, quit fast. Good food. We had our favourites: baby back ribs and chicken tenders. Excellent !

In the middle of winter sitting next the window, it is not really comfortable I would even say cold. Also, the vegetarian options is way limted than before, I miss the cauliflower burger.

Staff were fantastic, and really accommodating to our needs. The service was quick, efficient and of a high standard. The cocktails were tasty and as strong as you would expect for the price. The food was delicious and we will be coming back again

Staff went above and beyond to accommodate us, we only had a short time to dine as we were going to a concert. Food was delicious and although the price is higher than some places you get what you pay for!

The food is fairly expensive already and our waiter was up selling everything which could have been more subtle. Just wanted a beer and we received a ten minute speech about having to buy the glass etc.

Me my partner and 2 friends visited the Hard Rock Cafe in Amsterdam, the waitor was very friendly and approachable, my partner spilled a glass of coke on the floor, which I went and got the waiter and told him about what had happened, he cleaned up the mess, then 5 minutes later his college slipped on the damp floor after no wet floor sign had been put down, he fell onto my back and spilled the plates all over my jacket and all over my friends runners.... Not happy at all with the hard rock also food was average at best

The Service was really good and fast. Our Food was great. In my opinion the Drinks with a Glas for home (which you can choose) is also a good idea for a Souvenir.

Had an amazing time would definitely recommend this place to a friend, food was fantastic only downside was my Caesar salad dressing had to much vinegar in it. But other than that I can't fault my time spend here, the waitress was amazing. So fun, vibrant and attentive.

Went for my daughter's 18th and the waitress was friendly and attentive, offering suggestions for cocktails and food. We had a great evening. Would recommend prebooking using the website. Very easy and avoids waiting in a queue.

We booked a table for 7pm and weren't seated until 7:45. The nachos for started were the only good thing about the meal! My cocktail wasn't very nice. When my meal came it was cold. I then sent it back and it came back mildly better. The chicken was dry seemed it had been cooked for a long time! It was very expensive for below average food. There's much nicer non-chain places to eat in the area!

We booked a table for 4 online in advance. Very busy when we arrived but was quickly seated with minimum of fuss. Disappointed we didnt get a window table as we had booked in advance. Service was good and the starter, a mixed combo to share, was excellent. 3 of the 4 meals arrived first and all of them had very hot plates but the food was quite cold. We complained and returned the cold meals for hot fresh ones but these were not very hot either.
We were very favourably treated with the bill, credited for all main meals, which we thought was very fair. Unfortunately it spoilt the entire evening, leaving us very disappointed with the Hard Rock experience.
We always visit Hard Rock Cafes when abroad but have never been quite so disappointed before.

We were a large group and we all enjoyed our lunch at HRC. As soon as we walked through the door the server was expecting us and we were taken to our tables promptly. Definitely going to visit again. My only negative was that some of us were given our food before others, and then people were finished eating by the time other peoples food arrived.

When we are away we always book a meal at the Hard Rock Cafe as you are guaranteed good food and great service. Drinks are expensive so would only go as a special occasion

We were staying in Amsterdam for 3 nights and booked hard rock for a valentines day meal. Our server was amazing and very helpful with selection of foods (we didn't know how big the portions would be) and selections of drinks. She seemed on the ball with other tables making sure everyone was happy and served correctly, she was very upbeat and seemed to enjoy her work considering how busy it was.

Good HardRock Cafe as known overall in the world - concerning food an drinks.

Important to know in Amsterdam: The reservation of a table has no advantage/ makes no sense. We were on time and still had to wait 35 Minutes for a free table (like guests with no reservation). We reserved here via OpenTable. The waiter at the reception said, that we are no "Vip-Guests" and have to wait.

We got an excuse by the manager - but I still don't get why they offer reservations if they do not count at all. I can accept a little waiting time on a busy friday evening - but 35 minutes with reservation ist to much...

Decided to eat out at the Hard Rock. To be honest, the food is typical Hard Rock Cafe that you get all over the world! Portions are good but it comes with a price! We paid around €190 for four of us, including a tip. Atmosphere was great and it's another HRC I can tick off........
