Goodman is a uniquely British interpretation of a New York grill, offering the best beef from both sides of the Atlantic. Most of the meat we serve in our Mayfair restaurant is from American USDA ‘Prime’ corn-fed herds, but we also source grain-fed Irish Angus, rare breed Belted Galloway from Devon and grass-fed Scottish meat. Every steak we serve has been dry-aged on site – it’s the best way to concentrate flavour – then we cook it over charcoal. To accompany your steak, we’re proud of the American red wine collection we have amassed – we know it’s the best way to complement red meat. Our Mayfair restaurant is located just off Regent Street.

No better place for steaks in London

The main thing about this restaurant for me was the attentive service added to the fabulous variety of steaks on offer and the quality of those steaks. However, what really made it for me was the Smoked Salmon. I was fortunate to meet Frank Hederman at the Middleton Market near Cork and he gave me... read more

What can I say that hasn't already been said? This restaurant is one of those places you just have to visit if you love steak. We went on Valentines days and had both had a ribeye, which was cooked to perfection and was so juicy and tasty. The truffle chips are definitely worth having as a side dish. It's not... More

I must have gone to a different restaurant as the steak was quite mediocre. For £56 I would expect the steak to be tender and flavorful. Neither was the case. The service was very good as was the starter and sides, however, the porterhouse was tough, chewy, and lacked any flavor. The manager did remove my steak from the bill... More

Excellent all around! One of those places you wouldn't go all the time but when you do go, are definitely pleased! The burger was amazing and rather large, wouldn't bother getting a side again. Although, that is mainly because the white chocolate creme brule was extraordinary! The wine was also amazing and well worth the money, which was definitely a... More

Tried yet again for lunch and enjoyed the well balanced, fairly priced menu. Asked for steak to be cooked Pittsburgh style (black and blue) and it came just as ordered - the chef/kitchen here clearly knows what it is doing. Service was attentive and accurate. Ambience is good too. Overall, still Excellent

About as good a steak as you'll get in the UK. Pricey - but great atmosphere and great food. Book in advance or you've got no chance.

The best steak I've eaten in this country, by far. We turned up without a reservation but the very friendly staff fitted us in without issue. The place did fill up early so I assume reservations are the norm. The steak is expensive but is worth the cost. The cuts available are on a whiteboard so the menu is largely... More

A good solid steak restaurant. Nice friendly staff, quick service. The menu isn't extensive, but you come to Goodmans for one thing in particular, steak. The range of options for your choice of meat is almost too much. Knowledgable staff navigate you well through the options though. I had a rib eye which was an excellent steak. Range of beers...

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
