We had two meals at the Hard rock cafe after which,, as a non- meat eater, I had exhausted my menu options. The meals I had were very good and there is a good choice of wine, i.e. not just Californian wine as in many Hollywood eateries. There was a really great, lively atmosphere and the service was excellent

Hi Jan, Thanks for the review! I'm happy to hear that the service was worth the second visit. We have a couple new vegetarian offerings coming out later this month. I hope you will stop in again when you are in the area. Sincerely, Donald Smith, Asst. General Manager More

At 7pm on a Sunday night we were seated immediately. The waitress was friendly and fun. The food was served quickly and was very good. The prices weren't bad for a restaurant in a tourist area and the portions were large. Thanks for a great meal!

Saw the high rank and took the bait but this is the same old Hard Rock average grub just in a heavy tourist location where the atmosphere gets high marks. Lunch cost me $135 for a family of 4 and wished I would have just stayed in the parks for a their slop, especially since they make it as painful... More

Looking for something vegetarian to eat at Universal Studios in Hollywood, we checked the menu at the Hard Rock Cafe. The Veggie Leggie looked like it would do. The actual sandwich was a delicious surprise. The rock legend guitars on the walls and the vintage Cadillac hanging from the ceiling are added benefits.

The local burger is a a beauty with lettuce, ranch, cucumbers, and avocado. Gorgeous! The onion rings were perfect, large slices of onion in a crisp Panko batter. Delicious. The kids enjoyed chicken fingers, steak quesadillas and a chicken burger. My husband had the All American Cheeseburger with his choice of cheese. It was good food and lots of great... More

This Hard Rock cafe is located at Universal Studios CityWalk. It is your typical Hard Rock cafe. Friendly people, great music and decent food. I had the ceasar's chicken salad and my wife had the grilled chicken sandwich.
