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

Food and service were pretty good. First time visit to the new Piccadilly branch. Large shop there. Preferred this one to the one at Marble Arch, it’s a bit more like the ones in the US.

Great service, both at the reception desk and table. The restaurant is nicely laid out around the central bar. Usual high standard of Hard Rock decor and memorabilia. The food excellent as usual. Will definitely be returning

We’ve loved Hard Rock Cafes for years, and have visited most of them around the world. Sadly this one isn’t that great. Yes it’s relatively new but it feels soulless, definitely not like the original one by Hyde Park.
The bar isn’t too bad, quite large, but this is where the only screens are in the whole place so when eating most people can’t see a screen to watch the music videos.......you could be anywhere.
The food was actually just average if honest. We’ve loved their nachos, however here they use that hideous squirty cheese to supplement actual cheese. Not nice.
My wife had the Avocado Flatbread which was just “nasty” and incredibly soggy and oily.
My ribs were ok but drier than normal and the beans and coleslaw were just totally dry.
When asked we did complain and the manager arrived, but was totally dismissive of our comments, not only not interested but even kind of argued with us, telling us the food was nice, which was incredibly annoying.
Overall it wasn’t a great meal and we wouldn’t go to this one again. If, as the manager says, all Hard Rock Cafes now use the bottled squirty cheese in their nachos to be honest we’ll think twice about going to any Hard Rock again which is sad.

We booked a table in advance for my daughters birthday, when we arrived I mentioned again we were there for a birthday and was told they’d give “a special shout out” to the birthday girl, this never happened, we were also sat at the very back of the restaurant which after we had booked in advance and specified we were there for a birthday treat I would have thought we would have had a better table, more in the restaurant, our server was great and the food was good apart from my husband’s burger had to go back as was raw in the middle, there was no real apology for it but we were told quite abruptly that it had been cooked on the same griddle as the other 2 so basically they were all the same although the other 2 burgers were cooked throughout. Overall we had a good night but it was just a shame to travel all the way into London when there’s so much choice that we didn’t get what we had hoped for, we have eaten at the HardRock in many countries but felt on this occasion that the fact you were there should be enough which shouldn’t be the case.

We were a family of 2 adults and three kids of 16, 13 and 10, and we all enjoyed the food and the ambience. The service was outstanding and the waiter made the meal memorable with good jokes with the kids. We were warmly welcomed and got good advice on the menu. We all enjoyed the music, and the outfits from various artists that were exposed. We paid 135 GBP which is a fair price for the meal. The classic burger was perfectly made with meat prepared just like it should. Dessert was great, a large bowl of ice cream and chocolate cake to share. The shop is perfectly situated upstairs and of course we had to by a memory for the kids. We would recommend the restaurant and definately come again.

I loved the food, it was divine. The noise level was a bit loud, but I can't complain you must have lots of customers. some of your prices were a bit much, but your burgers were on point.

We got seated promptly. Staff were friendly and attentive. However, the passion fruit drink and also my child's smoothie was so sweet I had to dilute the passion fruit drink with water. The fries were too salty most of us just had approximately half of what was served. The the person who served us was very good and gave us a very good service.

It was ok. Very expensive for a burger and chips. Also, it’s supposed to be the Hard Rock Café, it seemed very Pop orientated, which is a real shame. Wouldn’t go back. Plenty of other places to eat in London.

Arrived on time and taken to a very nice booth and usual pleasantries exchanged.
Food came quick and tasty as expected.
Surprised to receive notice from Open Table that we had not arrived. Strange as we were still sitting there eating.
Perhaps that’s why I had to ask for a refill
All in all it was pleasant enough but not overwhelming as last time

Being vegan you have to look really carefully at where you eat. When I glanced at the menu I was unsure if there was anything I could eat. Once spoken to my waiter I was assured they could make a lot of options vegan if you ask! I had the vegan nachos, vegan flat bread and the moving mountains burger (in which they swapped out the onion ring and gave me vegan cheese). The food was delicious and I was impressed with their options and knowledgable, friendly staff! (The pineapple martini was also amazing)

Went for a birthday celebration and managed to get a booth. Both of us had a Hurricane cocktail, which was one of the best cocktails I have had. Had the ribs which were excellent and my wife really enjoyed her Pulled Pork sandwich.
All round a great experience.

Lunch before a matinee
If the lunch goes wrong, it can impact upon the whole day out
Our first visit to HRC and a varied family of foodies - meat/ healthy/ vegan
We were delighted to find that everyone left after lunch very happy with the meal
Special thanks to Kate at HRC for looking after us
Definitely be back🤗
And the show?
The Bank Robbery That Goes Wrong - not to be missed! Amazing!!

A pesar de tener reserva, y llegar con 15 minutos de antelación, nos hicieron esperar 30 minutos más que la reserva. Total 45 minutos de demora. Luego se equivocaron en el servicio de 1 comanda.

Having booked a 6pm Saturday night seating, we arrived about 15 minutes early and were seated straight away. I had some gift cards to use and the staff were very helpful in finding out the value for me. Our server was very friendly and efficient, yet not too bothersome. We tried the plant based burger which, as a meat eater, was DELICIOUS!
The prices are a little high, but it is a well known chain and London prices. So all in all, I would recommend!

I was left disappointed with my hard rock experience, I have been to lots around the world however I was left very disappointed with the service and quality of food . I was served a half cooked chicken and told by management that it was fine to eat even though 50% of the chicken was pink .
