This Spitalfields steakhouse has wooed much of London since opening in 2006; word-of-blog has only served to create an even bigger buzz around the restaurant and its food. A case of the emperor's new clothes? We think no.' Time Out

Spitalfields was our first restaurant, and the general view is that it is where the 'Hawksmoor spirit' is best embodied - many of the staff have worked there for years and would never consider elsewhere. Great steaks, great drinks and an amazing atmosphere, full of people who desperately care whether you enjoy your evening.

We are located just down the road from our namesake Nicholas Hawksmoor's Christ Church Spitalfields and 10 minutes walk from Liverpool Street, Old Street and Aldgate stations.

It can accommodate 115 people for exclusive hire and the back section of the restaurant is ideal for groups of up to 55. The restaurant can be hired exclusively for a meat-fuelled party, corporate function and wedding receptions.

Not my first time to Hawksmoor and it never disappoints. We treated a friend to an evening of steak and cocktails for his birthday, had a great time.

I was very surprised at how good this place was. I had the beetroot and goats cheese salad as a starter which was fantastic followed by several meat dishes which we shared. All very, very good. Service was good and friendly staff.

I'm not a fan of steak, my boyfriend enjoyed every bit of it, I was more interested in the sides and cocktails which were amazing! Couldn't fault it at all

Enjoyed this restaurant a lot; it's primarily a steak restaurant and it's very good. My visit was a catch-up/business lunch, the porterhouse (we shared one) was excellent, the creamed spinach was excellent too. Waitress was excellent; informative and pleasant and the service was good. It was good value for money, perhaps a little petty but I did think that the... More

Had dinner here with a London-based friend whom I have not seen in over 25 years and another friend who joined me in seeing a few football matches. My filet was a tad overdone but my buddies enjoyed their ribeye steaks. Wine list contains a good range and you'll find a bottle of what you like. We enjoyed a rioja... More

Spent a couple of hours having a delicious Sunday roast at the Hawksmoor, it was a good choice as both the food and service was excellent. And the wine we had and the desserts were also up there, definitely something we can recommend! The reason for not giving it 5/5 is simple, we ended up at the tail end of... More

We went there for dinner to celebrate my husband's birthday. The place was chosen by our children, since they know their father loves a good steak. I did not like the location and found the decoration a bit dark, but I realise it might be stylish. However, apart from the triple cooked chips - which were phenomenal - I was... More

Went for my boyfriends birthday as a treat, got complete food envy over his starter, the potted beef and Yorkshire puddings is worth a visit to the restaurant in itself. The steak, he had sirloin, I had fillet both two of the best meats I have ever taste, cooked to perfection. Great wine recommendation, team were fantastic, confident and happy,... More

Got treated to a meal here for my birthday. Ordinarily I'm not a big steak eater, but one Hawksmoor medium serloin and I'm converted! Without doubt the best steak I've ever tasted, unbelievable flavours! The ribs we had to start were also amazing. And the staff were great, very knowledgable & helpful with our food & wine choices. And before... More

Neighborhood Profile
Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
