Food was good. Restaurant was average. Table wasn't completely clean. Chairs were a little wobbly. Bathrooms were not well kept. It is cold if you sit by the windows. Staff was friendly.

This is what one would expect from a Hard Rock Cafe with the usual menu. The food was good, but not great. The service was really nice and was on top of things. Looking at the price range it isn't bad for Toronto. There is a good selection of beers and other drinks. One thing that stuck out to me... More

Our server/bartender, Dylan, was awesome! Very friendly and even went out of his way to have everyone greet our 2 birthday celebrants! Thank you, too, to Bobby/Manager for dropping by our table. Will definitely recommend to everyone to go to the Hard Rock Cafe at Yonge&Dundas Square

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
