    The atmosphere was nice. The food was mediocre. For the price it was definitely not worth returning. The server was friendly but not very attentive and spent much of the time chatting up with other waiters or the bar staff. Bought the brownie sundae because it looked amazing but was mostly whipped cream. I had been there about 4 years ago and it was awesome. This time I went with the family and I never plan to return again.

    We stopped in for dinner before heading to a sporting event. Our waitress was fantastic, the food was delicious. The drinks were tasty although slow. The service bartender was extremely slow. We ordered a second round of drinks before our dinner arrived, we did not receive them until after we finished eating. (I could see the well from my seat so I know when they were made) We got to the restaurant 1 and a half hours before our event started - yet we still ended up being late and missing the first quarter. Overall it was decent but plan accordingly they are a bit slow.

    I have always liked visiting the Hard Rock Cafe. This time was rough. I realize so many establishments and businesses are hurting for staffing, but this was a bit much. The soda was flat, the pizza cold, and chicken was dry. We waited much too long for cold food and inattentive food preparation. We will be back for sure, hopeful for a better experience.

    We always make stops at Hard Rocks, all over the world. We stopped in for a late meal and arrived earlier than our reserved time, but they sat us right away. Our server (Voldemort?) was energetic and wonderful. He was attentive and friendly and made our meal enjoyable. The food is what we expect at any HR. My daughter got the mac n cheese, but it was a bit too salty for her. We were sat next to a speaker that sounded terrible.. it needed to be replaced as the sound would screech. Was hard to not focus on it.

    Hard Rock Cafe - DenverResponded on February 18, 2022Hi Myers18 Thanks for letting us know about your experience in our cafe. I will let your server know what a great job he did. My apologies on the speaker. I will certainly look into this and have it repaired. Thanks again for stopping in and we will see you soon! Jim
