“Visit Redeemed By A Great Waitress!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

We arrived at the HRC at 7:40pm for a reservation made through The Fork of 8pm. There was a very long line up to be seated, so I asked the employee near the door where we need to go. He rudely directed us to the back of said line (using English). A few minutes later he announced to the line that it was a minimum 1 1/2 hour wait for a table (again in English). My boyfriend then asked "even if we have a reservation?", to which the employee responded in French (as if he could not speak English) something along the lines of "a reservation, you wait in the line." We finally got up to the podium and were told that even with a reservation, we were looking at a 1/2 hour wait. What is the point of making a reservation?!?! Thankfully, another employee (Claire) realized that we were getting upset and sat us right away.

We were greeted at our table by a wonderfully vibrant and friendly waitress named Daniela. Every time she came to our table, she made us feel a little bit better about coming to the HRC. The food and drinks were good and the service from Daniela was amazing! Thank you Daniela!

I recommend that if you do not want to wait over an hour for a table, make a reservation. But please go into the restaurant knowing that you will still have to wait for a table, just not that long.

Thank Jen H

“Very busy and loud!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

I basically just went for the Tshirt! It was very busy and didn't want to wait. Usually the food at HR is pretty much the same all over but love the atmosphere and drinks!

“great for an ageing music fan”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We ate here a couple of times on our holiday in Paris. Both times the service was excellent, and the food filling. More expensive than other places we visited, but the bonus is the stuff on the wall - Johnny Cash's guitar, John Lennoin's t-shirt, Paul Simonen's jacket, etc etc. Not sure about the shop selling Rhiana t-shirts, but nowhere is perfect.
