Goodman's is a steakhouse much in the same vein as the Hawksmoor chain, serving premium aged beef cooked on charcoal and served very much as the centrepiece of a substantial dinner. Pricing is also similar, so think £42 for a 600g Porterhouse or £34 for a 250g fillet. At this money, the steaks have to be spectacular and by and large they were.
As a group of eight we chose large plates of various cuts to share, and the majority were excellent. The bone-in-ribeye and Porterhouse were truly great, masses of flavour, perfectly cooked and great in texture. The bone-in-sirloin by contrast was a bit disappointing, lacking in flavour and being a little bit tough, despite it being cooked a perfect medium-rare. The truffle chips were lovely but could have been more crispy. The rest of the sides were good but not standout.
The service from our waitress Lucia was truly exceptional, being very friendly and relaxed yet professional and efficient. If it weren't for our waitress, i'd have given Goodman a four star rating, but as she contributed in a considerable way to our enjoyment of our meal, I have given the restaurant five stars... just...!
