Hawksmoor Air Street Ratings and Reviews
Excellent value for money and a great steak. The waiters were friendly and informative, Ollie in particular was fantastic. The sides were a little lacklustre and the chef did go a *bit* overboard on the Cheese for the ceasar salad starter, but overall the night was really enjoyable.
The steak is cooked perfectly and lives up to the reputation of the best in London. I came with my boyfriend for an anniversary meal and was pleasantly surprised that the restaurant had organised a complimentary petit fours plate for us. Absolutely loved it and would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone!
I have visited Hawksmoor, Air Street on several occasions and it’s down to the quality of food and the amazing service that ensures I return and bring along family and friends! My latest visit was my anniversary, and the “Happy anniversary” greeting from staff, set the tone for wonderful evening for my partner and I!
I especially appreciate that when I order my steak “medium well” or “ well done”, I’m not judged or persuaded to try it a bit rarer. The steak arrives just how I like it, and is cooked to perfection. The quality of meat ( and fish, as I’ve had that also) is seasoned to perfection, but the bone marrow gravy and sticky toffee pudding whether it be served with custard or in a sundae, has a special place in my heart!
Each member of our group had been to a Hawksmoor restaurant before but not the Air Street location. We were surprised by how big the dining room was but despite it being a busy Friday night, the service was amazing. The food quality as ever was incredible with portion sizes fit for even the biggest appetites. It was a great evening on all fronts.
We’ve been here quite a few times and have never come across such horrific service. It took the waitress over an hour to even take our order and then 1 hour 40 for the food to arrive. As soon as we’d finished the waitress came over and informed us we had to leave within 20 minutes. We had not been told we need to leave the table when we booked and not when we sat down. When we asked to speak to the manager, he was derogatory and rude. We then asked to speak to the general manager who was also rude and took no responsibility. Eventually she admitted fault but it took us 30 minutes of arguing to be allowed to have a coffee to finish the birthday meal. Terrible terrible service, I’ve never seen anything like it.
We usually go to hawksmoor seven dials but decided to try air street. We found the steaks weren’t as good as at seven dials but still a nice meal. The service was great. We unfortunately had a couple seated next to us who were playing videos from their phones with the sound on - made it feel like we were at McDonald’s instead of out for a nice meal!
When I go to a steak restaurant I expect the steak to be perfectly cooked. Ours wasn't. We ordered a medium rare porterhouse to share but it came out well done and tasteless. The staff couldn't be more helpful, they gave us the steak free and free deserts but we would much rather have paid and enjoyed our food. We ordered another steak which when it arrived was beautiful and perfectly seasoned, we ate it with our now cold sides. Our free deserts were a nice touch, but were just ok; the rhubarb tart had a beautiful flavour but the rhubarb was so undercooked you couldn't cut through it, the peanut butter shortbread was clarty and not at all the crisp shortbread one would expect. This was a special birthday occasion that we had really been looking forward to but left the restaurant feeling disheartened and underwhelmed. The staff were lovely, as was the atmosphere but unfortunately it wasn't enough. :-(
This was my first time dining at the Hawksmoor, and it has been my favourate meal to date. Fantastic meal at a great price, food was excellently cooked and presented, very helpful and friendly service. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a very enjoyable meal and experience.
Opted for the set men which had 3 choices for each course of which I could have eaten all of them. Food was excellent same as the service. My friend and I were doing the London night bus so were causally dressed but did not feel out of place, same as if I had been smartly dressed. Overall a great experience which I will do again.
Hawksmoor is reputed to serve the best steak in London, and I would agree that it does. We were older than most of the clientele. It was too noisy for our liking, and there is a scruffiness which was a surprise. However the food really was outstanding, and the service superb. The waitress realised instantly we were not comfortable where we had been seated and moved us to a quieter area. It is a restaurant for the young wine quaffing Londoner who appreciates excellent steak in a pubby type setting.
Had previously been to Hawksmoor Seven Dials with friends and enjoyed it. Took my son for a half term treat whilst in London for the day. Food was excellent as usual and service was friendly and attentive. I would thoroughly recommend Hawksmoor. You can eat cheaper but the overall experience is very good - ideal for the occasional treat.
We took our daughter and partner to Hawksmoor for lunch in the Air Street branch. From the friendly welcome downstairs to the bar and then table we have nothing negative to say. The food was delicious, (steaks and bream for mains). A good bottle of Zinfandel was enjoyed by all after the champagne, cocktail and beer. Well priced for the quality and 4 clean plates!
I was rather disappointed, actually. The waiting staff were all charming and excellent, but the food was fairly average. We chose from the set menu, which is very well priced, but the food is rather lacking in finesse and the steak, albeit excellent, arrived naked on my plate, without any attempt at presentation or garnish. The puddings were rather stodgy and terribly sweet. I liked the decor and ambiance but the food did not match up to my expectations and certainly can’t compare with set menus at other restaurants we’ve tried recently.
We're not Londoners so this was a special treat for us but I guess the prices are normal for people living in a big city. However, even though we found the food and drinks a little expensive the service was second to none from the moment we entered the bar to the moment we left, plus the food was to die for. Best fillet steaks we have ever eaten, chips were absolutely delicious and so were the veg. We ate late in the afternoon so it was pretty quiet in the restaurant/bar as it was between lunch and dinner service. My son introduced me to Hawksmoor and so when we found ourselves in London again last week we couldn't wait to go back - delighted to say we weren't disappointed. Gutted we couldn't manage a pudding maybe next time - thanks guys we had an excellent time
Every time I dine here I'm left wanting more.... it's hard to get enough of this delicious place. I've eaten in a number if their restaurants and have always had the best time. The staff are great ...fun and knowledgeable as well as getting that perfect mix of attentive but not buggy. I love it and highly recommend hawksmoor
Very good steaks and a really well dressed lettuce and herb salad (doesn’t sound much but lots of restaurants can’t get this right). Triple cooked chips OK but did not compare favourably with those I have eaten elsewhere as they were not sufficiently crisp on the outside. Service was fine but a little too keen to top up the wine glasses when it wasn’t necessary or requested. I think most people are happy to do it themselves. Probably at the top end of what I would be prepared to pay for a steak meal - even one of this quality. Nice atmosphere.
Enjoyed an early evening dinner with my family. Nice large bar area where we enjoyed cocktails. Restaurant is large with cosy and more traditional seating. Food outstanding and great value as we had the £35 menu if 3 courses and cocktail. Attentive service and great food is a winning combination. Will be back
Opentable review was extremely good value. That combined with £5 corkage for not meant the occasion was frugal (relatively) but also extremely tasty. The rib eye was nothing short of perfect. The rump was very good. The Caesar salad was cheesy heaven and the Yorkshire puddings were super yummy. Coupled with friendly and attentive service meant it was a great evening.
Hawksmoor Air Street what a beautiful restaurant and what fabulous service
We like to share all the lovely dishes and so the delights were placed imbetween us and we were given our own plates to eat them off.
Cauliflower beautifully spiced
Yorkshire puds with sauce and potted beef wonderful and enormous.
The fish was delicious and steaming hot.
Steak was cooked to perfection
I came here for my birthday as the food is excellent. The service is good & our waiter was very attentive. We had been to the Seven Dials branch before but much prefer Air Street, really nice art deco style and cosy. The steak is pricey but so worth it. Sides & deserts are good too. As it was my birthday the waiter gave me a happy birthday treat of chocolates which was a very nice touch. We plan to come here again, love Hawkesmoor!
I went to Hawksmoor Air Street for Sunday lunch with a friend. We both had the Sunday roast, which was delicious, and were then brought dessert menus by our waiter. We waited for quite a long time (upwards of 20 minutes) from the waiter to return to take our dessert order, only to be informed that our table was needed for a later booking, and that if we wanted to eat dessert we would need to move to the bar. We were not informed at the time of booking that we would need to eat within a certain time frame, nor were we told this when we arrived at the restaurant. Service up to this point had been 'leisurely' - if the waiter knew he needed the table back, he could just have taken our dessert orders promptly. We asked the waiter to double check that there weren't any other tables available, and he disappeared for another 10 minutes while still not actually taking our dessert orders, only to return to inform us that we definitely had to move.
I understand that the restaurant was busy, but to inform customers at this late stage that we would have to leave the table before finishing our meal was not acceptable. If a booking is time limited, it should be stated clearly at the time of booking, and service should be efficient to ensure customer are able to eat a main course and dessert within the allocated time.
