I thought we would have had to wait forever at this modern Mecca of a restaurant. We walked in and we seated immediately. Service was good and I didn't realize the large number of choices on the menu. I had been avoiding this place for years, but now am happy that I stopped. Even the music wasn't too loud for... More

Once again a super good visit and lunch at Hard Rock Café. Shaun looked after me and made sure everything was perfect from start to finish. Great knowledge of drinks and menu special items. The place was super busy but that did not affect service at all.

We were given complimentary tickets for VIP treatment at the Hard Rock Café. We were sat in the worst seats in the restaurant, we were right opposite where they wash the glasses. When we presented the voucher to the waitress we were told we should have had a "special" menu. Certainly not VIP treatment. Just a normal over priced burger... More

every "hard rock cafe" is an experience, this one is it too. The waiters and waitresses are very kind and "cool", but the service takes a long time. The food was average but OK. Pretty expensive for what you get.

Of course this place is full of tourists but it's still fun with a great menu. It's not super cheap but the food was good and it was nice to get off our feet and feel like you were not in the middle of Times Square crowds.

Ate here for lunch today. Wasn't very busy but the service was just mediocre. Very few visits from our waitress. Food was ok.

We stopped by here because it had to be done. My daughter just turned 21 and cocktails were required, along with souvenir glasses (which made it back to UK in one piece). We enjoyed every moment, well looked after, the waiting staff earn their tips in a good way, the food was actually really good and the cocktails a dream.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
