Combining the eclectic vibe of Piccadilly Circus with the rock and roll lifestyle of the Hard Rock brand, Hard Rock Cafe Piccadilly Circus, as Hard Rock’s flagship property, pays tribute to the building’s prestigious heritage and unbeatable West End location. Walk in and be wowed by the walls adorned with authentic, one-of-a-kind memorabilia from decades of music history, featuring items from British music legends and international stars alike. Located in the heart of London’s West End in Westminster, Piccadilly Circus was built in 1819 to connect Regent Street with Piccadilly. The circle is well known for the enormous video display and neon signs lighting the shops and restaurant corners on the North Side, as well as the Shaftesbury memorial fountain and statue. Surrounded by historic buildings such as the London Pavilion and Criterion Theatre, Piccadilly Circus is one of London’s most iconic locations

We have been to the Hyde Park Corner cafe many times so thought would try this for a change. It was great and I like the fact you can now reserve tables . Service was excellent and prompt and we will be coming again.

Only negative was unfriendly welcome from man at the entrance. Very surly and strong foreign accent that I couldn’t understand. He got annoyed because I needed him to repeat a few times because I didn’t what he was saying ( he was asking if we’d been the the desk). Apart from him, it was a very pleasant experience for myself and my son on his 13th birthday.

The service we received on arrival was not the best, we were shown downstairs and then stood there waiting whilst 3 members of staff looked at us like we were an inconvenience, carried on their conversation and then introduced themselves.
We were then shown to a table and a lovely waitress came and introduced herself, took our drinks order, came back with the drinks and took our meal order. Half way through our mains the waitress came back to tell us her shift was finishing and introduced another waitress that would be taking over from her, the new waitress didn’t seem remotely interested. We had to try and find the new waitress to ask for desserts and agin to ask for the bill.
When the bill came there was a ‘service charge’ of £10.03p added to the bill (12.5% of our total order) when questioned about this the waitress quite conveniently spoke broken English and didn’t understand what I was asking.
The ‘service charge’ was removed from our bill and the waitress became very snotty towards us, so we left without leaving a tip.
I would usually leave a £10 tip for 2 of us when eating out, however the fact that they add it to the bill and expect you to pay it is, in my eyes, out of order.
Overall the worst experience I have encountered at any Hard Rock Cafe world wide!

Really impressed with this brand new London addition of the Hard Rock Café in Piccadilly Circus. They had a decent selection of beers on tap, were able to fulfil my booking request to be seated within one of the lit up booths at the end of the restaurants and the service from our Italian waiter Ivano was great. The range of music and videos being played on the big screen was better than any current music channel too! From The Clash to Depeche Mode to the forgotten post 00’s Indie tracks. Excellent all-round experience!

We came as part my daughter's birthday treat - we were heading to see School of Rock afterwards so it tied in to the theme! We'd been recommended to visit HRC Piccadilly by friends and it didn't disappoint. The atmosphere was great, the facilities were spotless and easy to get around, and the staff were so lovely. Everyone, from the lady who greeted us at the top of the stairs, to Christina, our excellent waitress, we're so kind and courteous. We even had a brief visit from the manager - it was really nice to see the employees take pride in their restaurant.
The cherry on the sundae was Christina (who was so personable and efficient) hearing us talk about it being a birthday treat, and she organised a free ice cream sundae and a chorus of Happy Birthday with loads of other employees - our daughter was blown away! Such a lovely way to make the meal really special. Thank you HRC Piccadilly!

Food was awful and after experiencing Hard Rock Cafe food before in different countries was very dissatisfied. Waitress very stroppy and rude especially after refused to pay “optinal ” tip! Terrible won’t be returning to this cafe!

We celebrated our daughter's 14th birthday at HRC with several of her friends. We had a fantastic time! The girls loved the music and sang their hearts out throughout the evening. We had great food and excellent service from a very attentive waitress. We loved the relaxed atmosphere and cool vibe - perfect for the girls! We plan to come back for our eldest's birthday in December. Thank you for a great evening.

The only thing that could be improved upon is your veggie menu - adding a bean or quorn burgerw, sausages or fajitas would be a good addition - otherwise excellent

I have visited and eaten in quite a few Hard Rock Cafes, including ones in Japan, Canada ,USA, Amsterdam including the other Hard Rock in Mayfair London. The food in the Piccadilly branch was amazing as usual , arrived quickly was very hot and delicious. But not sure if this is because it's relatively new Hard Rock but I didn't get the same vibe like I have in previous experiences in your cafes and our waitress looked like she wanted to be somewhere else on a friday evening.

Arrived early but we were still kindely seated and served. The staff were wonderful and so attentive. Service was prompt and food excellent. The visit was a birthday treat for my 10 year old grandson, and the staff presented him with a complimentary dessert with candle attached and had the whole resturant singing happy birthday. Wonderful!
