Food wasn’t great. They came back about 15/20 mins after our starter to say they didn’t have one of our mains so had to wait for something else. The server tried his best but not sure if they were understaffed as they were all running about and service was slow.

All the food was very over priced - standard burgers cost €16.00 and they tasted like a burger you could buy for £5.00. We ordered onion rings as a side and were only told once the rest of the food was served that they had run out that morning.

A large MOCKtail cost €15.00. You cannot justify this price as the high cost of alcohol since it contained no alcohol. It was fresh strawberry juice mixed with basil and Lemonade.

The waiter was nice, although we were left for a long time before somebody came to take our order. The restaurant was very loud due to the high volume of the music and I could hardly hear the person sat across the table from me.

I decided to try the 24k gold burger - a standard burger which tasted like something you could get for £5.00. The gold just made the whole thing crunchy and not in a nice way.

Visited Amsterdam for my partners birthday and decided to book a table at Hard Rock, we went the day before but they were fully booked! 10/10 awesome place, food was lovely, staff were friendly and outgoing. The manager was even on scene asking everyone how they were and if their food was okay! One member of staff was even singing along to music and seemed so happy, which is nice to see!

I was really surprised by Hard Rock Cafe. I was expecting overpriced, bad service, tasteless food...well I definitely learnt not to judge so fast! WOW, the service, the food, the portions, the drinks, absolutely lovely, one of the best places I ate it during my week in Amsterdam. You really do get what you pay for! Kudos to the chefs the taste was exquisite and a special thank you and well done to our waitress who was run off of her feet but stayed cool, calm and collected throughout, she was smiley, had a sense of humour, was enthusiastic, she is a credit to the Cafe. Thank you for providing us with a memoribal lunch while on vacation!!

I love the hard rock, I go to one in every city. Unfortunately there’s was a mix up with our drinks initially and then our food which meant some of us were waiting longer for our food. Nonetheless the staff were lovely and they did try to rectify the problem quickly and the manager wiped our bill. It is a lovely atmosphere on the canal and overall a good experience.

We were celebrating a Birthday, it was mentioned in the reservation.
So we were expecting something, but we got nothing special for the Birthday.
Overall it was a great experience and we had a great view of the water outside, very romantic.
Our waiter was Victoria and she was very nice and helpfull.

Terrible experience. I booked in advance but was still given a buzzer and told I'd have to wait for a table. After 20 minutes of waiting, I approached the staff to ask when my table would be ready and they told me I'd already been seated! Err... no! They were argumentative but finally found us a table and the service was ridiculously slow. I have a milk allergy and the only thing I could eat was fries. So after waiting an hour, I had a side dish for a meal. My kids' food was ok.

Never been before to any Hard Rock Cafe, so this was family first. Was busy as to be expected but was served quickly. Was quite pricey, think around 17 euros for cheeseburger n fries, so with drinks as a family of four we were 85 euros. But the burger was plentiful and tasty, and it was an end of holiday treat, so it was worth the visit.

The staff at HRC is always super busy... sometimes this can cause slight delays. But this time service was fast, food was excellent like usual and all had a great time.

Love HRC Amsterdam!

We arrived early for our reservation at 5:30 pm, we arrived at 4;05 pm for dinner and were given a pager with the note that we would be seated within 5 to 10 minutes.. After half an hour wait I asked again and the waitress told me that we would be the next ones seated but again many people were seated but not us.. Then I asked again and she told me our reservation was for 5;30 so we would be seated at the time of the reservation.. I told her that we were promised to be seated within 5 to 10 minutes, then we were promised to be the next table and now she came up with an entire new story and eventually we waited longer than the regular line as the waiting for that was 40 - 45 minutes and we were seated at 5;10 pm, so a wait of 1 hour and 5 minutes.. This was really bad!
With this bad start we went inside and were seated at a nice table. Akos our waiter was nice and attentive in his serving! The food was ok, the nachos were not as much as normally but ok that can happen a time, the tupelo chicken tenders were small but ok, burger was ok and the brownie is Always a winner!
I received a gift card from an earlier visit for a free starter, entree, dessert and drink and when we wanted to pay this card was presented but for curious reasons not working.. Which meant we needed to pay way more then expected.
Overall not the hard rock experience I'm used, for sure the waiting was really a deception to the experience!

Had a fantastic time, the bar man was wonderful, even trusted me to come back and pay my bill after an hour away because the register didn’t recognise the 2 for 1 cocktail deal I had ( he needed the manager to put a code in and he was busy). I was also very impressed to see the manager at another time walk around and say hello and make sure every customer was happy with there meal. 10 out of 10 for me 👌

Service was very slow at times, and staff sometimes needed reminding to get some of the things we asked for (extra sauces). Food was exceptional, albeit expensive. Fantastic atmosphere and general environment.
