Food and drinks are about the same as in any other Hard Rock. Pretty good, nothing revolutionary. Quite expensive. Staff are friendly and full of energy.

Hi, flying to New York in June, I have tried to book a table through open table, it allows me to select the date and time I want but then says that their reservation system is offline, it's been like that for a while now. Can anyone say if they have booked a table in the last few days? Thanks
