The Hard Rock Cafe location is excellent and easy to find, right by the gondola rentals. It has a nice selection of musician memorabilia. The food was good as always and the menu the same as the other Hard Rock Cafes.

I love Hard Rock Cafès and Venice’s was no disappointment! I loved the setting, loved the space and the memorabila exposed. The staff was so incredibly nice and they even let us all stay longer because the Italy Euro game went into overtime. It was...an INCREDIBLE experienxe (just wished the game had volume but it still is a Hard Rock Cafè, so I totally get it) and I would recommend new customers who are unfamiliar to the Hard Rock Cafè menu to pace yourself and start maybe with just one main course because you don’t want to order too much and then be unable to finishe their delicious and very big and satisfying dishes!!! We even had to ask our waiter to please wait a bit before bringing our dessert because we were so full and she was so so kind. So yeah, if you’ve never been here.. whatcha waiting for? My faves: twisted mac and cheese, oreo milkshake and their heavenly hot fudge brown for dessert! Ps. Is it expensive? Uhm.. not really? One course is more than enough to be satisfied and, honestly, if you go to the Hard Rock Cafè you do it for the ambiance and its uniqueness and that’s its price, people.More

Much better quality food and service than American Hard Rocks we visited. We are Americans living 30 minutes from Venice, so we took advantage of COVID restrictions to visit without crowds. We were also missing American food. The quality of food was waaay better than...our experiences in New York City, Niagara Falls and Paris. Luca was the best server ever. He also alerted us to the 15% military discount on food and merchandise.More

Just off the far corner of Piazza San Marco, remote from the HRC shop which is beside Ponte Rialto. Waits on tables and longer than usual waits on service this Sunday, but, staff were running short handed because not everyone could make their shift with...reduced sailings to the islands as an unexploded World War 2 device in the waters was being made safe! Cannot argue with location with canal and gondolas right outside, main eating area is upstairs Standard worldwide HRC menu and i plumped for the "Casanova Burger" of locally baked ciabatta on radish, Angus burger with white Venetian Stracchino cheese and Venetian Sopressa aged salami where you might expect bacon and Monterrey Jack cheese. Pleased to have tried it but for cheese particularly too strong as it overwhelmed the burger, ws able to continue and leave half of the cheese off DOCG Montelvini Prosecco, casanova burger, twisted mac and cheese with a Peroni Nastro Azzuro for Eu66 ; typical Hard Rock costs mid range by Venice standardsMore

How can you not stop at the Hard Rock in Piazza San Marco? Prices as in all Hard Rock in the world, all gadgets present. Delicious food, I’d eat it every day. Hight-class cocktails, I suggest you try them all (better for me the purple...one). Spectacular music and great cleanliness. The waiters are very kind and helpful, friendly and professional, as are the clerks. Unfortunately unlike the other Hard Rock, have fewer accessories of famous people, this for the small space available. I can’t’ wait to go back. I share with you pictures of the best dishes eaten (I recommend the one with onion rings).More
