Hawksmoor Wood Wharf is housed in an eco-friendly floating pavilion in a new riverside neighbourhood in Canary Wharf. Gently rising and falling with the tide, the main restaurant at dock-level is joined by a 120-seat waterside bar, The Lowback. Both include terraces with views across the water (squint your eyes and you might just see the ghosts of great ships laden with mighty lengths of timber that used to swing in and unload there). There’s also a private dining room for up to 20 people named after the local legend Queenie Watts, a singer, songwriter, actor and self-confessed bawdy landlady (think Peggy Mitchell meets Joni Mitchell). The menu revolves around the best British produce the country has to offer with grass-fed dry-aged ethically reared beef, sustainable seafood from the South coast and some of the biggest hits from the Hawksmoor New York menu. The Lowback hours: Tuesday - Thursday: 16:00 - 23:00 & Friday - Saturday: 12:00 - 00:00

    Booked for an impromptu grown-up Sunday lunch at Hawksmoor Wood Wharf with my husband as the kids were off for the day. The food was absolutely delicious, flavoursome and melt in the mouth. We both had the Slow Roast Rump. The beef was absolutely gorgeous and the gravy was divine (sorry I love my gravy!) The portions were big, so big in fact that I couldn’t finish the meal and I really did try! But I will never complain about portion sizes, especially as the mean wasn’t cheap, but certainly worth every penny. I also have to give a special mention to the staff who were very attentive and had a lovely ‘nothing is too much trouble’ kind of attitude. Well done Hawksmoor Weod Wharf. Big thumbs up from me and hubby. We’re looking forward to going back to check out The Lowback Bar…better start looking for a babysitter now….

    The setting and ambience is beautiful. Service was also good. I can’t say I was impressed by the food surprisingly. The only thing truly worth ordering are the steaks, don’t bother with fish, starters or sides, really quite unimpressive given their price tags. I enjoyed it, but fairly overpriced. I would recommend for sure, but don’t waste your pennies on anything but the steaks. Those are beautiful.

    Went for my wife’s birthday, location and atmosphere is very nice. Steaks were good however one of the sides was missing and we had to ask for it twice. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. Very disappointing that the dessert they bought out for my wife’s birthday we were then charged for considering we paid over £200 would’ve expected a little birthday treat. However the staff were very friendly and smily which made the atmosphere very nice. Would recommend for a normal day out not so much for a special occasion

    We are frequent visitors to Hawksmoor. Air Street was our preferred choice but having found that Canary Wharf do the maple bacon they are now our favourites. The staff are always so accommodating and the service is fantastic. You cannot beat the fillet steak with bacon. Absolutely incredible. Keep up the good work

    We came back a second time for our farewell meal before leaving London. My daughters who are 9 and 11 ate the entire fillet steak each. It was that good. Simply the best steak in London for sure. You could eat them as they are plain, or add a side sauce. I really liked the peppercorn sauce, and my daughters liked the cheese sauce and bone marrow gravy. Our servers Lorenzo, Daisy, and Claudio were extremely friendly and super accomodating of our dietary needs. They would take time to speak with the girls and joke with them, and the girls really felt special. The second time we came in we were treated like VIPs and they all came to greet us and say hello. I highly recommend Hawksmoor for their amazing food, hospitality, and service. Can’t wait to come back again. Special thanks to Lorenzo, Daisy, and Claudio!

    If you’re familiar with Hawksmoor then you know that they are renowned for their steaks. However at Wood Wharf, fish also features throughout the menu which proved to be a great addition as the quality and thought process that went into those dishes matched that of the meat. The monkfish was incredible! The restaurant is large and feels intentionally segmented. We went for a birthday celebration and was definitely seated in an appropriate location within the restaurant, other sections had a nice “after work” vibe to it. Great selection of non-alcoholic cocktails (and not just juice) with the staff friendly and knowledgable, appearing to enjoy their jobs.

    We ordered steak and lobster. Everything was delicious, we could have had more. The sticky toffee sundae was delicious, and the kids wanted another portion. Our server Lorenzo made the experience even more pleasant, as he was extremely friendly with the kids and catered to our every need with our food restrictions. He was the cherry on top. Beautiful place, beautiful food, and beautiful people. Will definitely go back again and again.

    The food and service were excellent. Unfortunately, our visit was marred by the rail and tube strike! I had booked this restaurant before going to see Queen at the 02 and before the strikes had been announced. Our waitress, who I can't unfortunately remember her name, was very helpful in speaking to her colleagues about the best way to get to the 02. We would definately go again when we can take our time over the meal.

    This is a gorgeous room and we had a perfect spot for our anniversary dinner - a corner table for two with a view of Canary Wharf. Greeters and Bar staff were delightful, but we felt slightly wrong footed by our waiter, when giving our food order, which didn't make us feel relaxed. Food was delicious - and the £5 corkage mean we could bring a really nice bottle with us, which made a special night even more special.

    A fantastic visit to Hawksmoor Wood Wharf. The restaurant is beautiful and as soon as we walked in we were greeted by front desk staff who took us to our table. The staff were so good. Very very quick and friendly. Probably one of the best restaurant experiences i've had in a long time. The food (it goes without saying) was also outstanding. I'd happily give them a 10/10 and will be coming back in the future.

    We went to try out the restaurant after hearing good reviews. We got the Yorkshire puddings with the beef and gravy to start, they were great and probably the highlight of the meal!! For the main I got the 300g filet which was lovely and the triple cooked chips with peppercorn sauce. The meal was overall very nice and I didn’t have any complaints but the bill came to £147 for 2 steaks and starters and sparkling water which felt quite expensive for the food WITHOUT alcoholic drinks. I felt feeling like the value for money wasn’t there because while the food was good, it was not outstanding in any way. Would consider going back as it was nice but probably not a regular spot due to the prices.

    We had a generally lovely evening from start to finish. Our waitress was absolutely fantastic and couldn't be more helpful and accommodating if she tried. Our steaks were cooked beautifully, and the scallop starter was a particular highlight, fantastic flavour! If I were to nitpick, I would say that there could definitely be a little more flavour to the Jersey royals, and the rhubarb sorbet was very bland. But I feel bad even mentioning these points as the rest of our meal was SO good. Also, to everyone: you have to try the double melon cocktail. Absolutely sublime, especially on days as hot as yesterday!
