Girfriend and l went for an evening meal on bank holiday Monday at the downstairs bar - where they serve burgers. The staff were helpful and friendly. We both had the Kimchi burger served pink. It was delicious - one of the best burgers I have ever had (you know you are going to get top quality meat at Hawksmoor).... More

This place offers one of the best stake cuts and cooking hand down I promise you will never forget it, I went with my wife twice in 10 days, they also have a great selection of wine and because its that good you have to book way in advance. if you love your meat this is a must try

First timers at Hawksmoor, we were impressed. Great steak. Endless drinks. Cool vibes. It fit all the ingredients for a perfect sunday. The only negative is that it can accumulate to a fair sum, but not excessive for London. Definitely worth a visit!

Ok so I literally work 5 mins walk from hawksmoor so it wasn't the first choice place to go however literally everyone kept telling me how incredible the food was so I took my partner for a birthday meal on sat night. The decor is tired and the layout of the bar being downstairs and cramped is not great. However... More

We booked a table for 11 for my daughters birthday lunch and contrary to the other reviews here I thought the service was good,staff were very friendly, helpful and not in your face whatsoever. I liked the venue, the staging. I only had two bones of contention. The disabled toilet was covered by curtain and there was no clear access... More

So many people have told me how wonderful Hawksmoor is but I found it rather disappointing. Very noisy, service slow. The steak is great and was cooked perfectly for me, but for the price that's what you expect. Won't rush back.

I have never been disappointed at Hawksmoor. I have been several times, with family, as a couple and as a larger group and they have always been accommodating. You will have to book, even mid week as it is a popular haunt. The decor and atmosphere is dark and alluring, you can easily hide away in the corner with a... More

The steaks were good, as was all the food (if somewhat small in portion size), and if that's all you want from a dining out experience then fine. However, I found the atmosphere very loud, my London hosts tell me this is normal but with tables pushed so close together it made conversation difficult. Everyone ends up shouting to be... More

We went to Hawksmoor in Spitalfields recently after hearing good things and overall we were not disappointed. Upon entry the small lobby is smart and staff will take your coat. When you pass through the double doors the atmosphere changes and is casual, laid back and almost pub-like. The food here is uncomplicated and is very good. The steak was... More

Great restaurant for meat lovers. We dined here as a party of 6 on Saturday evening. We had a drink downstairs first where the staff were really friendly and even managed to get a table for us all together to enjoy a cocktail before heading back up the the stairs for dinner.The atmosphere in the main restaurant is relaxed and...
