Food was amazing, great atmosphere & incredible interior (never been before) we had a few lovely waiters but Mimi went above and beyond ensuring we were happy & quick with serving us. Friendly staff, nice quiet table & music was fab!

Gutted there isn’t one back home where I I live but will definitely come back again when I visit Manchester

Thanks again x

I booked the table for a pre show meal as I didn't want to risk not being able to get one. As it happens it wasn't busy.

So easy to book and kept updated.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was delicious, absolutely no complaints from us.

We will definitely be dining here again 😊

Burger was the dryest and worst I’ve ever had, nachos are a rip off charging so much for so little. Went to the one in Madrid so went to the UK version but so much worse. Service was great though, waitress was super nice.

This place has an amazing atmosphere. I've been here several times, and each time has been memorable. This time was the most memorable, we got a table in the upstairs area, which is the first time we've been up there and it made us feel like VIPs. The staff are amazing.

We had a very poor experience at Hard Rock. The table server was inattentive. The table was only partially cleared between courses, with dirty plates etc. left on the table. We were not provided with plates for our starters, nor replacement cutlery and napkins when needed. The food was of variable quality, with dry bread rolls and burgers. All in all, not a great choice for a meal out.

I think over all we were a little disappointed in our visit. We had got a voucher from my dad for christmas for a meal each and pudding. My dad had gotten a voucher for him an my mother in london and really enjoyed it so thought we would would have a nice time somewhere closer. For me the menu choice was fine as i normally only have a burger but my husband found it limited so settled on the burger. We both commented on how dry the bun and burger was we probably should have said something when the server came over however we were in the middle of everyone and being shy it would have been embarrassing. Normally the food is lovely at hardrock but this occasion it was well below exception. I was disappointed in the pudding being a brownie and didnt eat mine. They were good at refilling or soft drink so that was a positive.

Many thanks

New Years Eve at Hard Rock Manchester. Could’ve been a bigger food selection, especially as I don’t eat meat, and choice of dessert minimal!
Server was really lovely , food was good though and it wasn’t crowded which was good. Had a great cocktail (Hurricane) nice, relaxed, good atmosphere place to bring in New Year😊

The setting is great but the food over hyped. The food was average and there are much better burgers in Manchester. You pay for the walls.

Honestly the worst meal I’ve ever had from HR. Literally grown up going to HR all over the world and always make a point to go in each new city. Manchester is my local and have been going quite often as pregnant craving the hot wings. (Still an hours drive from home) wings were dry, table was cramped right up-to other tables people literally knocking into me, steak tasted like it was cooked in a bucket of salt, burger made husband sick in the toilets. Not one to complain and makes me sad that this visit has put me off going again but really was bad.

Was disappointed that the service charge was automatically added especially on a table of 8 as it isn't cheap to start with. Plus the up sell from waiter misleading on starter prices. Otherwise good food and service.

Been to hardrock twice now and both time they could not meet our preferred order which this time upset my autistic son greatly as he was really looking forward the the ribs and steak and my daughters chargrilled chicken with her mac & cheese was more burnt than charred
The scottish lady who served us was very nice and very professional the way she handled my son and should be commended.
Nice atmosphere but overall a bit disappointing from such a renowned brand
