Hawksmoor Air Street Ratings and Reviews
It took over an hour for our food to arrive even though the restaurant was quiet. However the worst part was that I have multiple food allergies that I had called and explained even before arriving. When the food finally came I got half way through my fish only to realise it had been cooked in allergic ingredients and it was too late to go back. I am beyond frustrated and angry with the restaurant as this has left my health suffering massively.
Lovely Sunday roast but we were quite surprised to see how underdressed everyone was. We’re far from usually judgemental but with all of the staff in trainers, gym gear and floral shirts it just gave a very unprofessional feel to what was a quite fancy Sunday roast. I know it’s not the end of the world but we were concerned that we were underdressed in jeans and Tshirts and surely a place like hawksmoor would have some kind of dress code? It seemed like everyone had just rolled out of bed or had just finished a yoga class? Very weird atmosphere and I probably wouldn’t have left a tip because the service wasn’t really when I’d expect in a place like hawksmoore but it was automatically added to the bill so felt a bit awkward to get removed. Overall the food was good but not the best or most professional atmosphere.
I had high expectations and Hawksmoor didn't disappoint. It was actually the best carpaccio and fillet steak I've ever had. The bearnaise sauce and beef dripping fries were the perfect accompaniment. Husband had the belly ribs to start which were equally amazing! And the anniversary rolos were a lovely surprise!
Our meal started to go wrong when the waitress dropped crockery and leftovers down my partner's back, so one ruined dress later and thinking " accidents happen" we continued our experience. The steaks were "ok" but the sides including the fries/chips were cold. After that drinks orders were incorrect and had to be returned with the managers apologies. The manager did take a percentage off of our bill but you don't visit what should be a top restaurant to put up with amateurish service, especially as they charge " top dollar "
"Probably won't go there again"
Have been to hawksmoor many times and it's one of my favourite London restaurants. However, felt the steak was slightly below par this time around. Fried queenies were soggy and floppy. I also had the 400g sirloin and at least 100g of it was fat/grissle. Normally not a problem but at that price it's a little annoying. Snakey Pete's as brilliant as always and the rosso di montepulciano is exceptional value. Will always be back but not the best meal ive had at hawksmoor (have been to all venues at least once) but will, Of course, return.
I had an exceptional steak, made exactly as I like it and really enjoyed my drinks at the bar as I was waiting for my friend. I also loved the creamed spinach, my compliments to the chef! I did find our waiter a little bit stiff and seemed rather pre-occupied and not very present. I asked him a few questions a number of times and either he didn't hear me or even ask me to repeat what I said, but seemed disinterested and gave of the impression of 'doing his job'...which I guess it's adequate, but sometimes, people feel more at home if the staff are friendly as well.
Compared to Hawksmoor at Spitalfield, this Air Street branch feels immediately more serious and a bit more upmarket. Spitalfield felt casual every time I went there, Air Street had a lot of ‘shirts and ties’ dinners. But the location is great especially if you meet up with friends who isn’t local to London.
Food-wise, I didn’t have any seafood that this branch offers. The steak was as good as usual. The fillet side of the porterhouse was slightly rarer than the sirloin side which is spot on. The rib eye was also great. Decent amount of flaky sea salt brings out all the flavour. The only criticism is perhaps the porterhouse was a bit too charred on the surface.
The side dishes are worth a mention as the sprouts were cooked perfectly with the lardon giving it a very interesting combo. The triple cooked chips is well season and a favourite of everyone at the table. Beef dripping fries were good too but everyone keeps going back to the triple cooked chips! I ordered the sticky toffee pudding and that was outstanding! It was so good I might recommend not to over order the main and make sure you have some room for it! The peanut butter shortbread desert was also very tasty.
Opening a branch in the West End hasn’t made Hawksmoor any worse. It has competitions with a Gaucho near by as well as Goodman. But those triple cooked chips will always sway me to Hawksmoor if that’s the location.
Brilliant meat, cooked to perfection - I have never been disappointed here. Service absolutely spot on, relaxed and informal on the outside but utterly professional. Knowledgeable, friendly staff. Monday night £5 corkage deal is amazing - resulting in a busy restaurant and a pretty tough Tuesday!
My new favourite Sunday Roast. First went in with my family after seeing it on a 'best roasts in London' list and we had an excellent time, went again this weekend with my friend and it did not dissapoint. Friendly, welcoming yet professional staff who are incredibly attentive without being intrusive, a great atmosphere, no music in the background but a lot of talking noise, yet it's still easy enough to have a conversation at the table. The restaurant itself has a 30s feel to it with green decor and coloured glass, and big windows. It's cosy yet elegant.
The roast, no words. Succeulent beef (when ordered pink), delicious gravy, a big Yorkshire, and the sides, especially the cauliflower and Mac and cheese are taste sensations! A lovely roasted garlic on the plate too! The sides are a good size for the price and £20 for the roast is an absolute steal! We've already re-booked for this Sunday!
We both had messengers tonic cocktails and the express menu as we ate early before the theatre
Superb meal, and wine and as always finished and paid in time for performance.
Best pre theatre dinner around! (although the Seven Dials restaurant excels at this too).
Everytime we are in London, even if for only a day Hawksmoor is a MUST for a meal. Six of us were in London for 2 days on a layover to Jakarta and enjoyed a fabulous evening experience. The wait staff was patient, explained in minute detail any questions we asked and ensured we enjoyed our every moment there. The meats were exactly as we ordered and the extras recommended were spot on.
Preferences were accepted and accommodated graciously.
I haven’t been back to Hawksmoor for a year or more. The quality of the meat is quite disappointing compared to my past experiences. It is average at best and, when one considers the price point of the food, it is disgraceful how far the restaurant has fallen. Service was slapdash and, again, fell far short of what one would expect at these prices. I ate at the Chop Shop a few days later and the quality of the meat and the service was superior and at a much lesser price point.
I went to Hawksmoor for their highly acclaimed Sticky Toffee Pudding and it did NOT disappoint. I was impressed by all the staff I had contact with from the coat check to my waiter and I loved the ambiance of the restaurant. I was on a solo trip this time, but will most definitely be returning any time I’m in London. Next time I’ll plan on a full meal and be sure to leave room to top it off with more Pudding.
The overall experience was superb. One diner was gluten intolerant and nut allergic and the restaurant was extremely professional and accommodating when informed. The staff were friendly and efficient and helpful. The wines were very good value as was the food. An excellent venue for Sunday lunch and well worth a visit.
Loved the roast beef lunch. All four of our party had it medium. For Two of us this was perfect but the other two really should have gone for well done as it was a bit rare for their liking, but the staff were great and took it back to the kitchen for some extra cooking time to make it more well done. Was a lovely lunch for my mums birthday.
Look forward to coming again and trying the steak next time
