Description: 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.

“Birthday treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

My lovely girlfriend brought me here for my birthday knowing that I am really into my steaks as is she. Having been to the Hawksmoor not so long ago and having been a little disappointed, we held our breath and hoped for a better experience. We were not disappointed. The waiter (Anthony I think his name was) was absolutely fantastic. Friendly, welcoming, genuine, efficient and he put in a sterling rendition of happy birthday when it came to that embarrassing part of the night. The food was equally excellent. We opted to not have starters and dived straight into the main. I had the porterhouse with béarnaise and my girlfriend the fillet. We then shared a lobster tail and a selection of veg. In a nutshell I couldn't fault anything. That's actually doesn't do it justice. It was fantastic. The desserts were equally delicious. The night was topped off with a fantastic tour of he kitchen with the young Canadian head chef. 10 out of 10 fit food, service and ambience.

“Great Meal and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

I hosted a group of 10 to dinner at Goodman earlier this month.
Food was excellent and service was terrific - our group had a number of unique requests and the staff was able to accommodate all of them.
Highly recommended for a good evening out with friends, family or business.

“Happy Days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We go to Goodman a lot, and with junior (1yr old) in tow, who thoroughly enjoys all of the attention that he gets from the staff.

Always get good service, and the quality of the food cannot be faulted. Its expensive, but definitely worth it compared to other steaks we have had in town. Its a no brainer if we fancy a steak

“Good Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Met my Pa for a quick steak here a while ago, very good steak with bearnaise and chips. He paid so can't comment on value for money but it was good, nice atmosphere and good service.
