“Pot of GOLD at the end of a rainbow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Recently my girlfriend and I spent our 2 year anniversary at the Hard Rock resort in Punta Cana and were just blown away!!! First all the staff was incredibly helpful and nice, the rooms were amazing and the ocean views were breath taking. The restaurants in the resort were also great and the food was well received but we were looking for something a little more formal and romantic for our anniversary day. We were then informed their was a "al a cart" restaurant we could visit on property.

When first entering the "Mansion" we were greeted by a well spoken charming gentleman (I believe he was the manager named Vladimier) who was courteous enough to show us around the exquisite, impressive Mansion. Vladimier took us thru every room explaining how each room was a depiction of Chef Simons mansion. As accommodating as the gentlemen was he allowed us to choose a table my girlfriend was stunned by.

When finally dining, being from the states and previously being a Manager at a Hotel with a celebrity chef and and a studied sommelier and mixologist I was very impressed with the designed cocktails with fresh ingredients ( my favorite was the garden something Martini with fresh mint,bell pepper,and jalapeño...sounds weird but AWSOME!!) Also the food was delicious to best describe it. Fresh ingredients, perfect portions,wimzickle combination of flavors and refreshingly affordable.

All the staff were very attentive and very knowledgable of the menu and the chefs background, from the som Carlos, to the bar manager and bartender who told us an AWSOME story of his time as a pro baseball in the states.

Over all great experience!!! couldn't have been happier to find it within an already breath taking resort. Hats off to Chef Simmon and all his staff.

“Don't Miss this Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Even though you may not notice it at first, this restaurant is one of the hidden gems to be found within the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The restaurant is located at the entrance to the Casino and what a find!

We had traveled to the Hard Rock with friends of ours to celebrate our son's 16th birthday. We had originally planned to have dinner at the Toro restaurant within the property, but, the night before his birthday we stumbled upon Simon Mansion as we were going into the casino. We went to the staff and asked if we could have a birthday party the next day for 8 people, with the guest of honor being 16. The team showed us to a private room that we would be able to use the next night and with less than 24 hours notice, they were also able to create a birthday cake for him.

The next evening, we came for our dinner and it was WONDERFUL! The private room was great, the perfect setting for a 16 year old's birthday. The service was IMPECCABLE and the food was OUT OF THIS WORLD! We all had appetizers and tried a whole range of entrees, from chicken to steak to lamb. The food was absolutely DELICIOUS! Even all of the sides were wonderful.

For dessert we had the birthday cake, which was delicious and then we also tried the Junk Food platter. Leave room at the end of your dinner for the Junk Food platter. Our 10 year old absolutely loved it. She loved it so much that we went back to other evenings just to dessert, which was of course the Junk Food platter.

You can't believe our surprise when after the meal, the staff told us that they had only been open for 9 days! Great service, wonderful food, super menu after only 9 days, unbelievable.

This place is amazing. If you are in Punta Cana, you have to travel to the Hard Rock Hotel just to have dinner at Simon Mansion.

“Delicious and Inventive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

The Hard Rock did not market or advertise the Simon Mansion as much as they should. We noticed it from walking around the casino and thought the atmosphere looked like a place we wanted to experience. The service was outstanding and responded to our every ask promptly and with a smile. Our meals were delicious! We had: slow-braised short ribs, twice fried chicken, sushi, rib eye, kobe burger and pasta. We loved everything except for the rib eye (get one from the all-inclusive restaurant Toro- it is better!). The kobe burger was phenomenal as were the short ribs. We enjoyed everything and would recommend this restaurant. The cocktails were quite good too. I liked the savory and sweet ingredients used in them to give them a trendy feel. We enjoyed our dinner at the Simon Mansion!
