We hadn’t been in Seattle long so thought Hard Rock was a safe place to start with food as we have used the franchise many times before. Blake was our server and he did at least try to interact with us as we are from the UK. Food was fine and served quickly. The cost of the drinks startled us a bit as they seemed very expensive. Apart from that no complaints.

Great location, the Guinness burger was ok but nothing crazy. Service very slow and restaurant not busy. Could be better.

We found this Hard Rock searching for American food after visiting Pike's Market Place. We were seated immediately because it wasn't busy. There were people setting up their artwork for a local talent show which was also going to have a DJ. Our waiter was efficient and professional. The food was good. The decor isn't as impressive as other Hard Rocks. Seattle also has huge homeless people issues and there was a problem with one who had to be escorted out. Since we were seated right next to the DJ booth we left as soon as we were finished eating to avoid the noise and lights. Prices are tourist area high ($16 for a hamburger). Staff was professional, restaurant cleanliness was adequate (could use improvement).

I make it a point to visit a hard rock cafe when I travel. This hard rock in Seattle has to be one of the saddest ones I have walked into. You would think with Seattle's rich history in music that it would be covered with memorabilia, but it is not. Some pictures and a couple of guitars...that's it. The souvenir shop was terrible! A few shirts and hats and not a good selection at all. This place is more interested in selling you and overpriced burger than celebrating Seattle's music history.

On November 10 2019 I came in for lunch with my two friends. We were there from 3:00 pm to a little past 4:00 pm. We were visiting Seattle from Vancouver, Canada. The service was very slow and it took us a while to even place our order. After placing our order we noticed 30-40 minutes had passed and we hadn't even gotten our appetizers. We noticed many tables around us being served and believed we had come in and ordered well before them. Because of this my friends decided to complain to the manager about the slow service. After complaining, our server never came back to us. The manager brought our food and offered to take care of our bill for us. Seemed like a very kind gesture. When we finished our meal, because we did not have to wait to pay our bill we left our table in a hurry and walked out. A minute after walking out I realized I had left my designer sunglasses on the table. We ran back in and went straight to our table. We saw a bus boy clearing our table at that time. He was standing with his tray of dirty dishes. We asked him if he had seen my sunglasses that were left right on the table he was clearing and he told us no. I told him we had just walked out a MINUTE ago and there was no way my sunglasses wouldn't still be sitting there. He told us no and walked away. We then went to the hostesses in the front to let them know what had happened. They brought the manager. The manager heard me out and said there was nothing he could do, he asked the server and the bus boy if they saw my glasses and they both told them no. I said they had motive to steal my glasses because my friends complained about him. The manager said he had no right to search him and there was nothing he could do. Not only was our service extremely poor but we were punished for complaining by having my $400 sunglasses stolen only a minute after walking out. In Canada, you can forget your entire purse with your wallet, cell phone, anything and it will still be returned to you and kept safe till then. I was extremely disappointed that nothing was done about this when it was ovbious my sunglasses were stolen by the worker(s). TOURISTS BEWARE ***

I've been to a lot of Hard Rock cafes and the Seattle branch is the worst.
I got the pulled pork sandwich with fries. The fries came out cold and the pulled pork was just about warm. I sent it back and got hot fries and another warm sandwich.
There are only two toilets downstairs which were far from clean.

I order two plates, mac&cheese and grilled salmon served with mashed potatoes and broccoli. My mashed potatoes was not fluffy and contain many clumbs. I told this to my black server guy and he told me that the plate is good so. This is a very bad behaviour, he put the bill on the table and went away

Went to a Jazz Event performance earlier this month on a Saturday, held upstair at the restaurant. The entertainment was great. There were no servers provided. You had to go downstairs to order your food, get your own place settings and the only thing the server did was brought the food to you. You had to go to the bar to get your own drink. Mine you, I started a tap. As I ordered my drinks I would tip the bartender as I ordered. Towards the end of the night, I believe I had one drink too many and closed out my tab. My bill was over $109.00. Later that week I was checking my bank account for items that cleared, I noticed that I had a cleared item from Hard Rock Café of over $129.00. I went to check my receipt and it stated $109.00. The bartender tipped himself again! Plus my receipt was not signed! I contacted the manager, explaining the situation, and he was rude on top of that. I could have contacted my bank for fraud. That's stealing! Well, they adjusted my account and returned the $20.00, plus two of their gift cards. I gave them away, I'm not going back. The environment is dry and employees rude. I was told before I went to the place not to go there. Plus, the person I gave the gift card to said they had trouble with them honoring what they ordered. I'm a working professional, when I go out I love good service, as I pay for it too!

A 22% enforced gratuity is fine for good food and good service of which we had neither. I asked for a simple straw and got it AFTER my meal. My burger was woefully undercooked. My daughters pasta marinara was a reheated dish with rubbery pasta. I am done with the Hard Rock franchise.
