My husband & I chose the Hard Rock Cafe as our wedding reception / dinner. Communication back & forth to arrange this was always simple & questions were answered quickly via emails. When we arrived in NYC we went up the HRC for dinner on our 1st night to check out the area in person & make sure everything was... More

I have previously been to Hard Rock DC which was great, so couldn't pass up this opportunity. The service was quick for getting seated and our server was great. The atmosphere is fun like you'd expect, with great music. I enjoyed the local burger I had (it's a pizza burger at this location). The one downside is that is so... More

Was really looking forward to coming here as came in November 2015 but it's not as I remember and had left rather disappointed. This time around we were seated in what felt and looked like a school canteen area. This area could really do with a revamp as everything was outdated, right down to the tablecloths. This is a lot...

Had to check out the Hard Rock Café in Times Square which is housed in the old Paramount Theater. Didn't even realize it moved from the original 57th street location over 12 years ago until I was here looking it up. We were there for a late afternoon dinner and it wasn't crowded. Designed well for moving people and accommodating... More

We arrived after 10 pm on a Sunday night. Still had to wait 10 mins for our table ( party of 4) No big deal but one wouldn't expect to wait at this slow time. Our waiter was delightful but the food was mediocre. The kitchen got 3 out of 4 of our dishes wrong! We had it rectified and... More

We had a good evening at the Cafe in a good atmosphere, enjoyed the music and friendly service. However,on the way out we bought a load of stuff in the shop and only discovered it was all mostly the wrong size/product when we got home. Ah well, never mind

Our experience was like any other very popular restaurant was (I was in a large group of about 130 people), gift shop in the front, restaurant in the back. But little did we know when we sat down, one of the servers (named Hakim) was going to give us a show, and what a show it was. He danced around... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
