Disappointing.

Not the best Hard Rock Cafe we've been to. Food expensive and found the burgers to be quite tasteless unless smothered with bacon, cheese or some kind of relish. Plates were cleared from table before everyone had finished which I found a bit rude.

I've been twice to HRC Sydney in August, 2015. Both times I had a very good experience. Food was good and it came fast. I reccommend it!

Efficient, tasty, similarly priced to the area, well served with a wait in an understaffed bar. Good memorabilia, music and videos

I didn't think the atmosphere was hard rock at all. The food was ok at best. More like a glorified Friday's with an expensive price tag.

We went here on a Saturday night arriving at around 6:30pm. We asked to be seated outside and were lucky enough to get the last table. Our waiter was absolutley brilliant, he was helpful, attentive and funny! We all enjoyed our delicious meals and cocktails. We also had a prime seat for the fireworks display over Darling Harbour, extra bonus!... More

Hard Rock standard but poor service. Food was good but the service was poor, worst wait for drink and service in any Hard Rock to date, sorry Sydney. Waited ages to clear table or order more drinks. Have had better service in most other Hard Rocks to date. At aside very large, spacious resturaunt with nice meal all round. Hope... More

Delicious meals with fantastic location and views across Darling Harbour. The service was faultless, the waiter chatted amiably and took the time to interact with our children and make them feel comfortable.

Bad service. No table service whilst empty. What goes wrong. We asked for some drinks. Waitress did not want to serve at table. She wanted to hang around. We had to pick up our lousy coffee and some other drinks See picture.

We walked in to the restaraunt and for a few minutes we were stared at by staff and ignored. It was 4.30pm and we were just about the first customers for dinner. The place was dead. Finally one offered to show us to a table. we asked to sit in a booth because it was easier for our 2 year... More
