The area
Address
Neighborhood: Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.

We had a good experience from start to finish, food was amazing, service was great, and children were happy and catered for well which is always a big factor when Dining with children.
They also loved the Messi ball they got with their kids meal.

This is one to skip. My wife and I tried to get a drink at the bar yesterday (10/10, about 2:00), but the lone bartender (Elvis) wouldn't wait on us. We waited and waited and waited. As Elvis was taking orders from customers who had walked up to the bar and were standing (we were seated, patiently), my wife said, "You are busy." The bartender responded curtly, "Yes, I am." Then he continued to wait on others. He could have said, "Yes, I will be with you in a moment." Apparently, that would have been too much effort on his part. A few minutes later, we left and walked to The Hollywood Roosevelt where we were able to get drinks at 25 Degrees.

In a relatively empty restaurant we asked to be seated on the more comfortable banquete seating but we’re refused. There were around 10 banks free - apparently reserved for a large group.
No group showed and shortly after we sat down a group of 4 girls were shown to one of the banks.
The food was ok but waiter cleared half our plates before we had finished and slapped the bill on the table whilst still eating.

Pre booked and service was good, nice large restaurant and additional menu for this LA branch (on top of the normal menu). Unfortunately the food arrived cold, but was so hungry I didn’t argue. Rest rooms not easily accessible for any disabilities - including sight, its pitch black when you walk in.

The food was horrible (i.e. sliders overcooked, Salmon also over cooked). Music was so loud that no one at our table could hear anyone!!! ABSURD!!!

Food was not worth what I payed! I asked for my burger to be well done and it came out pink. My husband got the shrimp and it wasn’t very tasty. We didn’t have great service either:(

I had the messi-burger. The fixings on the burger were good. I had it “all the way,” and it was messy however the two meat patties were rubbery - like they had been in a hot pot for a while and maybe not freshly grilled. Seating was light that day so no reason to precook burger.
Atmosphere good - same as most HRC. Service very good.

I will start off by saying I did not go to the Cafe to eat. I went to to visit the Rock Shop and look at the memorabilia. I was in LA back in 2004 but it was before I collect the shot glasses. The young man at the register was very kind and helpful. He showed me where the sale items were and gave me permission to look through the restaurant even though he shouldn’t have. I was surprised they didn’t have more big name items on display. Several of the artist I had never heard of. My only Rex is go early and beat the crowds.

Ok so the food at this chain is similar where ever you are in the world, it’s good, big portions, nothing special, the service was good here, the location was near the Chinese theatre but it’s not as nice as the one in New York or Universal City walk Orlando, but whilst in LA it’s a must visit when you’ve got kids, or teens.

Thought this iconic Hard Rock Cafe would be special; it wasn’t. Dark and dingy inside. Food was over cooked.
Paying for food was a worry as waiter said he needed to take my credit card through the back as they “had no mobile terminal” He was put out when I refused to let the card out of my sight and agreed I could pay on exit. Only a fool would allow a credit card to pay in this way. Hard Rock should not allow this to happen; very poor.
