This was our second visit. On the first occasion we were very disappointed. This time the food and service were simply first class. Lovely steaks and roasts. All 5 of us enjoyed it. Recommend. Would give 5 stars but is slightly overpriced. Good quality costs of course.

Waitress was brilliant - knew her stuff and was very friendly. Highlight of the meal. Found the food over-priced and simply OK, whereas previous visits to other Hawksmoor branches have had the wow factor. Meringue dessert came with only three thin slices of meringue rather than a whole nest, chewy and crunchy. Felt cheated by that, Steaks were not any... More

I went in a party of 6 to the Hawksmoor Spitalfields, steaks were all tasty and well cooked, we ordered fillets and porterhouse. Another good meal nothing earth shattering but consistently good service and food.

Came to Hawksmoor to celebrate my Birthday with a friend. Had a fantastic meal...the steak was unbelievable! The service was also fantastic. Cost was on the pricey side but definitely worth it. Can't wait to go back!

A friend of my wife and I came to visit us from Tokyo, Japan and he's a big meat lover so it was a no brainer to take him to Hawksmoor. Since he was staying at a nearby hotel in Liverpool Street, we chose the Spitafields restaurant. We've been to Hawksmoor at Air Street and 7 Dials many times before... More

My son and his girlfiend had been to Hawksmoor covent Garden a few times and said we should go and my daughter was desperate to go. I finally booked it as a surprise for her birthday but booked the Spitalfields one. We walked through Spitalfields market which is by the way, absolutely fab, and did some shopping then walked out...

Great food and fantastic knowledgeable service. Our waitor could probably write a book on steaks and the different cuts. We ordered a bottle of wine which we hated and it was changed straightaway. Great service. If I'm to be picky I would say the chips were covered in far too much salt but come on, chips are bad for you... More

I am neither fat nor greedy, however i do have avoid appetite after a Saturday run, and taken out for my birthday. I also know how to cook a great steak. I did enjoy the 1kg porterhouse to share with my petite girlfriend, however I've picked these steaks up for a fraction of the price from Smithfield on nights. The... More

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday and the food and service was 10/10. Had a drink at the bar because we were a little early and the barman took the time to chat to us and ask us about our weekend. The waiter talk is through the menu and answered any questions we had. All done with a genuine... More

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.
