We dined at Hawksworth on several occasions while staying at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia in which the restaurant is located in March. Our impressions were quite different for dinner and breakfast.

Dinner was good with the exception of an entree that was over salted. Service was pleasant, although somewhat thetarical, and we found the sommelier’s attention too intrusive. We had barely sat down and not even surveyed the menus before he was inquiring whether he could recommend a wine He also attempted to whisk away our glasses while we were still drinking.

At breakfast, we routinely ordered the egg white omelette, so it’s unfair to judge the kitchen on this dish. It was predictably bland. Our complaint is with the cleanliness of the restaurant, the lack of which was apparent in daylight hours. There were crumbs all over the floor near our seats and on the banquette seats. One of the waiters seemed incapable of answering any of our requests with a response other than “no problem,” In one exchange, I counted 20 “no problems.”.If I were at an Earl’s or Dennys. I’d expect that, but not here. How about: “It would be my pleasure” or “Of course “or even “Certainly”?

Yes, it's expensive, with $20 appetizers and $40 mains but, oh, is it ever worth it. The piquancy and contrast of flavours were sublime, the portions just the right size. Service was engaged and impeccable: our server, an employee since opening day, displayed impressively detailed knowledge and functioned brilliantly, attentive but never obsequious. My only complaint relates to the woman at the front end who got confused about our reservation, but after the way we were greeted and treated, she's forgiven.

Many people think this place is among the best in town; they're absolutely right.

On both occasions the service was impeccable, the menu choice is good with a variety of dishes , nicely presented, and the portions are ample. Considering it's reputation the prices for wine and the food was also reasonable for such a high calibre restaurant.
