My boyfriend and I booked this restaurant as I have know of this place for the last 6 years (I use to work down the road). My boyfriend had let them know that this meal was booked for a belated anniversary meal due to me being in hospital the previous week. We both had starters (scallops for me and crab... More

All I can say is best bar-food ever! Go, try it out, eat a burger or a hot dog, have a cocktail, you won't be disappointed! My partner took me here today for my birthday it was awesome, we will be back!

The quality really is in the meat. Beautifully aged and marbled steaks. The beef dripping chips offer an explosion of flavour and the cocktails aren't bad either!

I visited Hawksmoor Spitalfields yesterday with two friends for a steak supper and it was very good indeed. The meat was perfectly cooked and the food overall was very good. Whilst I do like Hawksmoor's steaks, Goodmans, in my opinion, is slightly better with a lot more choice and cuts but it won't stop me visiting Hawksmoor in the future.

My partner and I had an amazing meal here on Friday. It was my 40th birthday. Our starters were delicious, I had the bone marrow, which was soft wobbly and delectable, my boyfriend plumped for the scallops which he told me were rich , garlicky and cooked perfectly. The steaks were divine , the mash heavenly and the wine list... More

This has to be the worst steak restaurant I've been in for a long time. Not only did the waitress take my half finished drink but the waiter went and got it back 5 minutes later without the lime and straw (I wasn't even sure it was my drink)...... obviously I didn't drink it and decided that enough was enough...

Hawksmoor is borne as a steakhouse but still I appreciate its kinda elegant twist. Howevver the one is Spitafields is simply a bar where they serve good cocktails and steaks..not as good as the others in my opinion

Description
This Spitalfields steakhouse has wooed much of London since opening in 2006; word-of-blog has only served to create an even bigger buzz around the restaurant and its food. A case of the emperor's new clothes? We think no.' Time Out

Spitalfields was our first restaurant, and the general view is that it is where the 'Hawksmoor spirit' is best embodied - many of the staff have worked there for years and would never consider elsewhere. Great steaks, great drinks and an amazing atmosphere, full of people who desperately care whether you enjoy your evening.

We are located just down the road from our namesake Nicholas Hawksmoor's Christ Church Spitalfields and 10 minutes walk from Liverpool Street, Old Street and Aldgate stations.

It can accommodate 115 people for exclusive hire and the back section of the restaurant is ideal for groups of up to 55. The restaurant can be hired exclusively for a meat-fuelled party, corporate function and wedding receptions.

For information on private hire and events, please contact our events department.

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighborhood Profile
Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
