Absolutely love the atmosphere at Hard Rock Cafe! We only stayed for cocktails, which are great if you go at happy hour as they are at a reduced rate! Love visiting the cafe in difference cities and would recommend going if you have never been!

Shown to our table promptly by Isaac who was super friendly and very informative. Our waiter was Simeon who was again very friendly, gave great service and told us about the memorabilia in the cafe. We had the burger and the chicken. Both meals were tasty and hot. The Manager brought them to the table and again was very pleasant.... More

We ate here following a visit to the nearby National Football Museum. From the moment we arrived to the time we left, the staff could not do enough for us. Great value especially when using a season ticket from the football museum. We will return!!

Looking for a late lunch & drinks before attending concert at the Arena. Called in by chance and was advised of an approx 30 min wait for a table which was no problem as we had cocktails while we waited and very nice they were too!. In fact we only waited about 20 mins before being taken to our table.... More

Returned to Hard Rock Cafe after several years absence. Love the service and ambience. Loved the house wine but have to say we were somewhat disappointed with the food. Plenty of it but rather bland. Will return but limit our visit to a drink only next time.

Lovely building and décor, but unless you are eating there the seating is very limited. We had to sit on the stairs and were planning to stay a few hours whilst our daughter was at a concert, but had to move on due to lack of seating.

After a short wait for about 10 mins we were sat down. Restaurant was on three levels with bar area on the first level. Waitress very friendly Located in the heart of Manchester near Selfridges Departmental store. Food same quality as other Hard Rocks. Good to rock in Manchester 😀🎼😀🎼

Popped in before a concert, with the view to having tea here. However at 4.45 it was a 1 hour wait for a table, so changed plans and just had drinks here. Staff were very friendly as always even through the place was very busy, they were still very polite. Still think the Hard Rock is over priced, but they... More

First visit no table or waiting for 45 minutes. Okay. Totally understood. Second visit, I booked in advance still no table after booking was successful ! I was told they block the booking so did not receive mine. No courtesy offered just expected us to accept queue and wait for 45 minutes. What a nice treat after we have visited... More
