I went on a school trip with my high school to America. We stayed in New York for a few nights and for the first night we were booked to go to Hard Rock Cafe. After a long day of traveling the sound of having...some nice comfort food was amazing. The place was full of people, great music, a good gift shop full of different stuff. Overall it gives off positive vibes which was really nice. We were seated straight away. Server was friendly and made sure orders were taken quickly. Food was fantastic. I would definitely recommend at least visiting Hard Rock Cafe once. I really enjoyed it there but I personally didn’t like how when we were waiting for food an individual went to all tables and took photos of the customers as it was apart of their job but I would’ve just preferred it if that didn’t happen but apart from that it was a really good experience.More

We ate at the bar after a show. Nachos and salad with a couple of glasses of wine. Just the right stuff at the right time in a energetic atmosphere. Thank you Duane!

We didn't book, but only had to wait 15-20 minutes for a table, enough time to check out the memorabilia - the wall of guitars was amazing. The shop upon entry is filled with all things Hard Rock -so fill your boots!! Once we were...called through to the restaurant we were seated and served by Kayla, who was really friendly and helpful. We ordered far too much - but all of it was delicious and we got take out boxes with the remaining food - there was lots. The music, and atmosphere was great, music not too loud so you could hold a conversation - it was really busy - which only proves to state how good it is. Good location off Times Square too.More

It may sound noisy initially but if you find a good place at the bar, the noises fade away and you can enjoy the company of your partner. One of the best Hard Rock Cafes one finds anywhere in the world.

We went here twice on our four day trip to NYC as we really enjoyed the food and atmosphere the first time. It’s reasonably priced for the location and the food is tasty and fresh, and the staff are fantastic. Nice to be able to...look at all the memorabilia too.More

I had a very good burger here. The atmosphere is unique but do not expect hard rock music, there were more rap and pop video clips than rock.

Came here twice, once for drinks and snacks during the day and an evening meal whit a hell of a lot of drinks. Staff are fun and happy, drinks are good, once you’ve got your souvenir pint glass, just ask for a 16 oz drink,...half the price. Food is great. It’s expensive but your in Times Square!More

This is Hard Rock Cafe no.3 on my list, I make an effort to visit as many as possible on my trips to try the local legendary burger + buy the local T shirt The joke of it is during our visit they was a...DJ pounding club music and also pop music, not a single rock song. If you call pitbull, Rihanna, Katy Perry and so on rock music then you may like it. Music was so loud it was like sitting in revolutions or oceana for a sit down meal I asked what the local legendary burger was as for whatever reason they had printed the default menu which says "the local legendary burger is different and unique to each hard Rock Cafe" the menu should have a description of their own speciality burger. The lady replied pointing at a picture "it's like that one with a bit of apple in it and some jam" I decided to have it anyway but unfortunately she's only gone and brought me the bog standard legend burger. I wasn't going to wait another 20 minutes so just put up with it The experience was ruined from the loud club mixes they kept playing and we couldn't hear ourselves speak. Food quality was laughable compared to any other hard Rock Cafe. (cheese on burger was pre melted but left for a while before it got to me so was almost hardened, pub food standard at best) Honestly since looking at trip advisor it's got the same kind of reviews since 2015 so nothing is changing. Take my warning and avoid, or if you collect the t shirts like me just use the rock shop and dash out for an arbys instead. At least the food will be good and you can stick your earphones in for the AC-DCMore

Standard seating is at a regular table. High top is when you have seating on taller bar stools

The answer is probably no. This is a franchise restaurant and there is a legal obligation to adhere to the general menu structure. Having said that, there might be a festive mini menu issued for the Xmas season, but it... More
