Such a pleasant surprise that the 'bar seating' was indeed a table!

Loved the express menu and choice of dishes. I had the tail fillet steak and it melted in the mouth.

Can't recommend it highly enough.

Had a lovely evening with my partner. The steak, as always, was flawless and the service delivered by our waiter Chris was brilliant. He made good decisions with the cocktail choice for my partner and the wine choice for me. Most certainly will be visiting again!

I love the slightly overpriced magic that is Hawksmoor. This soulless and location with a screaming ambient level of noise is not what I signed up for, just another franchise trying to make more money. Sad times, go to borough or Air street.

Nice space. Service is efficient. Food is reliable, and arrived promptly, but did not wow. We didn’t have steak, which may have been an error? Prices are rather steep.

1st time at Guildhall restaurant, Great atmosphere as always, had a few issues with the prime rib, not the usual standard i'd expect from Hawksmoor. That said, the service and the whole experience was good.
Prefer the Knightsbridge restaurant.

My favorite steak house in London. The food is all amazing except the ketchup which is horrible. Can’t believe they still serve that ketchup.

Decent spot in the city. Attentive staff. Menu has items besides steak. Prices ok for what it is. But not cheap. Burger ends up being over £20 with service. Tasted good. But man. Way way too much grizzle. Ended up with a pile
On my plate.

Over priced, over seasoned - steak, chips and onion rings extremely salty was unable to eat it. Didn’t get asked how the food was until the waiter came to collect plates. Scallops had grit in them. Very disappointing expensive meal.

Best steak house I ever been to! Lovely atmosphere, looks very classy and the food wow amazing. One thing I didn’t like was the space between tables, it was a little too close if you wanna have a serious conversation it’s a bit awkward. But overall it was great

We selected this restaurant as it was a special occasion for us. It is a beautiful building, great decor and the staff overall were attentive and really friendly. There was a problem, however, when our main meal was served. A very surly waitress literally dumped our steaks on the table and walked away without a word. We found this disappointing given the reputation of the food that Hawksmoor serves. It is a shame that when we mentioned it to another member of staff that their only explanation was that this person was in training. It is my partner’s first time in your chain and sadly he was disappointed with this.

Server gave wrong steaks to us, no big deal so we swapped them over but specifically asked server to confirm which sauce was for which diner
On his reply, we poured the sauces onto our dinner only to find these were incorrect
Spoilt the dinner as scrapping off the sauces was not what we expected to do and it affected the taste of both
Server was also chewing gum!!! Not what we expect from hawksmoor
Charge for wine and dessert was removed and a promise made that steaks would be free on next visit
Not a good experience, regardless
Not had confirmation email from hawksmoor yet

Ambience was a bit more subtle. I think I am just more used to the more vibrant settings that some of the other well know establishments have to offer.

Unfortunately all round bad experience. Terrible service, we had to ask to have our order taken, our open Prosecco was taking to another table and poured, our sides and sauces were forgotten and the steaks were tough. The large room made it feel like a school dining hall with a huge amount of noise. Very disappointing for the prices and high expectations. Wouldn’t go back.

A mixed bag - we usually love Hawksmoor, but this time, we ordered the Chateaubriand (at the cost of over £100) and it was very poor quality. It was tough and generally not that nice. When we told the waitress, she just batted it off. A pretty poor experience in my view. The regular waitress was excellent and most of the other food was good, but felt pretty let down because of the aforementioned.

Great steaks as usual. Not my usual Hawksmoor venue, was a little noisy but that was understandable considering how infrequently people have been going out.
