Nice buffet

My first stop for breakfast when staying at the hardrock we've dined here for breakfast on previous trips so thought we'd revisit & wasn't disappointed. Typical American breakfast buffet with great coffee just what's needed after a long haul flight.

Brunch is $19 per person, but very well done. Excellent food choices and everything was delicious! Gave us cups to take extra coffee and juice!

We went to The Kitchen for a late lunch, while we were waiting for our room to be ready. Our waiter was very jovial and helpful, making it a great experience. My food was average, but everyone seemed to enjoy their meals. The prices were what you would expect at a resort, which is a little pricy.

Booked The Kitchen to dine though we didn't stay @ Hard Rock Hotel. Should have known better. The Kale and Roasted Beet salad was over priced for portion and quality. The beets were canned and when asked, our waiter said,they roasted and chilled them. The shrimp tacos were too heavy, served with flour tortillas and battered shrimp and over sauced... More

While staying at Hard Rock we didn't walk to walk to CityWalk one night and headed downstairs to the Kitchen. We ended up eating three meals there. The front desk hostess, Katie or Kaylen perhaps?, was awesome and even remember our name. The wait staff was great and it felt warm and inviting with great music. My son loved the... More

The place was fantastic regardless of the time of day you chose to eat there. Great breakfast buffet, and super menu with some unusual items, such as aligator tail. Outstanding wait and bus staff. Very friendly and helpful, and very accommodating with dietary needs.

The Kitchen is an on-site restaurant at the Hard Rock Hotel. The food is good and well prepared, but it's expensive, which is to be expected when you're visiting Orlando and Universal parks. The staff were pleasant and attentive.

We have been before and had to go back the first night of our holiday. Last time the drink was my main focus! This time it was the food I focused on. It was great and far too much. Will probably go back again.

The decor is beautiful and our sever was very attentive to our needs. I was a little disappointed because I made reservations with the idea that the characters would be there. But I may have been wrong on the dates, cause we were a day early. The food was something I honestly could have gotten at Denny's. My son did... More
