We only had less than 2 hours in Hollywood, HR was on our hit list. We were a bit concerned with the big check in desk that there would be a long wait, especially as one of our party is weak following major surgery. In reality we waited less than 5 minutes for our table. The food took a little... More

My family of 5 ate at this location for dinner on a weekday. There was very little wait, and we were seated at a large booth. They had live music playing on their stage, but it was a bit too loud for us at the table to talk without shouting at each other. The different dishes we ordered were great,... More

We enjoyed the music and atmosphere. The food was plentiful and tasted good. Of course, as expected at Hard Rock, too expensive. I only gave this an average rating because the Hard Rock I was at in Miami was much better with atmosphere.

After trying one HR cafe at Las Vegas we have become their fans. This one was close to our Loews hotel. The ambience was great. We were more than happy to get our veg dishes. The servings were a big one for the price. Worth visiting again.

We had an excellent lunch at the HRC on Hollywood Blvd. We were on a tight time frame and our servers made sure everything came out fast and correct. I've not had a bad meal at a HRC and this was no exception. Most in the party had awesome hamburgers. I had a lovely grilled fish sandwich.

This Hard Rock Cafe is one of the best i've ever been in - very spacious, and clean. The service was quick and friendly but can't help but think the waiters try to hard to get a good tip - we did tip of course but they keep coming over. The food helpings were very generous for the price. Overall... More

We stopped in right at 11 for lunch- very empty, very slow service. It was nice in sense to walk around and look at memorabilia. They played great music the whole time. Cobb Salad was great. Service was slow. it was like a maze to find the bathroom to wash hands before eating.
