Enjoying iconic status across the city, Hawksmoor Spitalfields has built a reputation for offering the finest steaks in London. Oozing old-school glamour, the suave dining room features shabby-chic brickwork and old school wooden furnishings, offset by a littering of trendy kitsch trinkets. Alongside a celebrated selection of dictionary-thick meat cuts, Hawksmoor favourites include plum pudding belly ribs, or smooth potted smoked mackerel.

Best steak dinner in a long time

These guys know their meat. Good, loud atmosphere on a saturday night. Main reason for the 5* is the food itself; steak was perfect, plenty of sides to choose from. On the expensive side, but well worth it!

Shabby bar and dining room. Two out of four of our steaks returned to kitchen for incorrect cooking. No doubt the steaks were good, but the cooking was not. One was a porterhouse (costing £81 without vegetables). Asked for it medium and it came up medium rare and it had been sliced. Sent back to kitchen and came back unacceptable... More

Great place to eat, service was superb and the Chateaubriand delightful. We were welcomed from the rain and stayed for three hours.

probably one of the best steak places I have ever been to, and the meat in particular was excellent and perfectly cooked and deserve an easy 5/5, but they do that thing of charging extra for every side and the sides are OK, but not great. When the bill comes, be prepared!

It was ok but a) the steak was fatty b) the second bottle of wine was pretty dull and c) we were rushed so they could accomodate a second service. In my opinion Goodman's is a better experience.

On a whim and with some luck we managed to get a reservation at Hawksmoor Spitalfields at short notice as we were both in the mood for steak. We've been here a few times and as usual the food was excellent. The steaks are cooked to perfection and full of flavour. As for the sides, well the triple cooked chips... More

This is a super restaurant. The ambience is great and the staff are very friendly and attentive. The menu is varied and there is something to suit everyone. We shared two sides and that was plenty. I'd recommend the creamed spinach as it's gorgeous. The cocktail menu is amazing. We had a couple of cocktails and then opted for a... More

Took the family to this restaurant for my son's 21st birthday celebration. Had a terrific time, very friendly staff, they explained all the different steaks and how they should be best cooked. Very impressed by the service, everyone very helpful and we had a great time. When it was time for desserts they wrote Happy Birthday in chocolate all over... More

This is the place to go for steaks, I have been here several times, the food is always great and the staff are very attentive. This is one of the restaurants you can keep going back to over and over and it will still be great

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.
