Absolutely beautiful meal - the steak was incredible, probably the best I’ve ever had. Creamed spinach, fries, parsnips, everything was amazing! Wine was also delicious. Great ambience, all of the staff were incredibly friendly - especially our waitress, she was great. Can’t wait to be back

I took my daughter for a meal here. It has a lovely atmosphere, which I think is the layout and good lighting.

My daughter had a steak which was amazing and though they ran out of fish options on the main (and I'm pescatarian) they did their best to find a solution, making a mackerel salad starter into a main portion size. It was delicious.

We also had a crunchie dessert which was really nice. The Waiting employees were so polite and helpful. It was a lovely experience and I shall definitely be going back!

Our waiter was very polite, however after serving us water, it took a further 20 mins for him to come and take our order for food. We ordered our fillet and sirloin steaks medium-rare but they both came medium-well. Half the sirloin steak was pretty rubbery due to this. Not the quality expected for the price paid. The ribs and maple glazed parsnips were lovely.

Great meal. Each course was spot on. Friendly and attentive service throughout. Only bad thing to say is that the venue was out of multiple whiskies that we wanted to order. Overall a five star meal.

Consistently excellent service and food. My only reason for a slightly lower score for ambience is I think the west end locations are a bit more special in terms of settings but spitalfeilds is just as nice, just a bit more casual. This branch is particularly good if visiting with a child as acces is on one level and staff are super welcoming to little ones

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Hawksmoor. Our waiter was more then helpful explaining everything to us and left no stones unturned in ensuring we were clear about all the meat cuts and what would suit us.
It is not cheap but I feel the price is 100% matched by value and quality.
Will defo be back.

Great food,great service and great atmosphere.
The porterhouse was delicious beautifully rested and that delicious sear on the outside. The sides were the perfect partner to a good steak.
Also recommend the shakey Petes brew deliciously refreshing,perfect way to start a lovely meal.

Our first Sunday lunch at Hawksmoor. The roast is tremendous. And credit to Hawksmoor for reminding us of a long-forgotten offer from way back, when our steaks weren't as expected (the only time that's ever happened). How many other restaurants would do that?
