There's nowhere like Hawksmoor in London for a really superb steak! My girlfriend and I have been here a few times, most recently on a whim on the August bank holiday. For starter I went for the potted beef with yorkies and Nat had the smoked salmon. No complaints about either dish, the gravy that accompanied my starter had a... More

Starters of potted beef with Yorkshire puddings and gravy were a taste sensation. The steaks were so good it made us want to cry! One of our party ordered the chicken. Never have we seen such a huge portion. A fabulous and memorable experience.

Waw. It was a lot of fun to enjoy such a good steak in London. We arrived early (6.30pm) and boy, what a nice vibe. It was pretty busy but the service is excellent. The food was great, really great meat and fun to assemble your own dish with whatever you want. They also have great champagne and an excellent... More

I visited this restaurant for the first time on Saturday lunchtime for a meal with my wife and friends. We had pre booked, thankfully, as the restaurant was very busy. I had heard a lot about the Hawksmoor chain and was looking forward to the visit, I wasn't let down. The service was very good, we had a waiter with... More

Came here with my girlfriend. The service was very friendly and efficient. Food delicious, but on a pricey side. One would expect that though. Not much choice on the menu perhaps. Would happily come back. Cocktails and ambiance in the basement bar was a nice end to the evening.

I have been to Hawksmoor 7 dials a few times and it is impressive, spitalfields lacks any impact when you go in. However, you are going there for steak and they do an excellent job. Very well cooked, great chips and we had excellent service. It does get noisy but I like that.

Excellent food, no doubt about it. Slightly spoiled by a condescending waiter. All right, I'm an idiot: but you don't need to make me feel like one. Especially at these prices. (The condescending waiter was a very tall male with glasses. If you go, tell them you want someone else to serve you).

Had a great meal at Hawksmoor last night with colleagues. The steaks were delicious and the sauces were the best I've ever had. Try the Stilton Hollandaise for a real treat. The summer vegetable starter was also a treat. Sides are great for sharing. Chips were crisp and flavorful. My only complaint about this place was the noise level. Our... More

This meal changed the image of Sunday Roast in my mind at all! I used to think Sunday Roast was just a piece of dry chewy beef with vegetables. Now I know that I was completely wrong! The roast beef was AMAZING! And done forget the side dishes, they tasted good too! Definitely I will come again in the future!
