“Move over Simpsons of thr Strand - this is the best Sunday Roast you'll ever have.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Lots of people rate Sinpsons and the Savoy as the best roast beef dining experience. I can tell you it's not. The Hawksmoor Seven Dials is by a long way the best Sunday Roast I have ever had.

“Best steak in London? I think so”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Firstly, the food is great! Not only the steak but also the bone marrow (starter) and shortbread (dessert). It also manages to be pretty swish and upscale without being pretentious so it's the type of place that anyone can come and relax whilst enjoying some excellent food. It is not haute cuisine per se, but that is not really the point, I only wish there were more places like this in London. Keep up the good work, I will be back.

“A must for steak lovers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Not the cheapest place in the world but then you wouldn't expect great steak to be cheap would you?!

The Hawksmoor has a fantastic atmosphere and the food was amazing. The staff were very helpful and had no problem with mid-meal additional orders. They scored extra points as when deciphering what cocktail to have, I was brought a 'sample' of each of them before ordering- nice touch.

With the top cuts of steak available in weights you can make sure you leave full to the brim of arguably the finest steak London has to offer. I tried three different cuts which were all to die for.

Having dined at other top steak restaurants in London such as Gaucho, this was definitely on par, if not better than others. Highly recommend.

“Very enjoyable, quality produce, but at a cost”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

I'd heard about Hawksmoor from a number of friends who have raved and raved about it; my previous attempts to visit had lucked out due to the number of bookings they had.

So finally, I was very pleased that we were able to be slotted in for a 2hr slot that came up; to their utter credit, the staff never rushed us once, and the service throughout was amongst the very best in London.

And so to the main event - the food. It was excellent. Yes, it is pricey - there's no point ignoring that fact, but for a special occasion, it is worth pushing the boat out. The steak was amongst the finest I've had - very tasty, full of flavour and massive. The sides were all well cooked - my top tip is that if you are going for the steaks is beware their size when combined with the sides (chips, fries and salad).

Didn't make it thru to the desserts, and only had one glass of wine, so missed out on the cocktails, but the list of both did look impressive.

“Best steak in London - if not the UK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Without doubt the best steak in London. Sourced form the best producer in the UK, the Ginger Pig . Aged in-house and cooked to absolute perfection. Steaks go as big as you can eat, we shared a 1.5kg rib of beef that was a religious experience. Fabulous service and beautiful setting. If you are in London and want a steak - there is no competition
