“As amazing as I hoped for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Last time I visited this restaurant I was a vegetarian, and have been waiting for over a year for a return visit as a carnivore - and what an amazing meal we had. Roast lunch + cocktail & a bottle of wine to share was well worth the wait. The meat was superbly tender and more veggies than you can shake a stick at. Have booked for a return family visit in April !

“Birthday Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We went to the restaurant for a birthday in December 2012. The reception staff upstairs were very helpful and sent us downstairs to the restaurant to be seated even though we were 20mins early. Once seated we placed our order for one of the steaks on the board but the sizes were incorrect therefore we had to order a larger one, this was the only negative.

If you are in a rush please think about what you order as the 800g steaks take about 30-40mins to cook therefore its not somewhere to run in for a quick bite if you want a serious steak. The food quality was amazing and impressed with the cooking of the huge steak. The staff were very attentive and talkative which is becoming something you don't get anymore.

Overall was high quality and would definitely go back but be aware you pay for the quality of meat!

“No Sure Why So Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We recently ate at Hawksmoor. It was strange because the restaurant is a steak restaurant but they were almost out of a couple of cuts (e.g., porterhouse). The service was okay but definitely not memorable. The steak that came was good but not huge and the prices were very steep. We live near NYC and eat at many of the well known steak restaurants which have equally if not better steak and are less expensive. The food in London does appear to be higher priced in general and perhaps there are much fewer steak restaurants so Hawksmoor stands out. For us, it was okay but nothing really special.

“Delicious, top restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

The food was beautifully cooked, we had the bream and the steak and both were absolutely delicious. We also shared the salted caramel tart with popcorn ice-cream - it was amazing! Layers of thin pastry, salted caramel, dark crisp chocolate and then tart filling completed by cream sweet popcorn ice cream. The waiter we had was friendly and attentive and took time to explain the menu. Highly recommended!

“Great steak, service could have been better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

We went for a birthday meal, the restaurant and bar are very cool looking and we started with great cocktails. We had to ask a few times if the table was ready and was then taken through. The waitress was excellent at explaining how to order the steaks etc and advising on the sides. The food was amazing, but sadly the service soon tailed off. We were made too feel like a bit of an annoyance that we wanted more drinks?

Anyway, great steaks and the salted caramel ice cream is awesome!!!!!
