Description: Goodman is a uniquely British interpretation of a New York grill, offering the best beef from both sides of the Atlantic. Among the huge selection of meat we serve in our Mayfair restaurant is American USDA 'Prime' corn-fed beef, grain-fed Irish Angus, and various rare breeds from the Lake District. Every steak we serve from our extensive 'cut' list has been dry-aged on site - it's the best way to concentrate flavour - then we cook it over charcoal. To accompany your steak, we're proud of the American red wine collection we have amassed - we know it's the best way to complement red meat. Our Mayfair restaurant is located just off Regent Street.

“Very good bit I expected more?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

Don't get me wrong, everthing was very good. My steak was well cooked and of a very high quality. The sides were delicious and we paired it all with a fabulous bottle of wine. Our waitress was knowledgeable and attentive.
But, I asked for medium rare and was recommended to have medium which then came very medium. The Stilton sauce was more red wine than cheese. I had know idea it was a red wine sauce with Stilton.
For just under £200 I feel that good or very good is just not enough.
Overall I felt that I got diminishing returns for my marginal gains.

“Want a Good Steak.. Go to Goodman..!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

This was my third visit to Goodman. My experience in Goodman has always been great, and the service level is really perfect (thanks to the restaurant's manager, and waitress Magi :) ).

My wife has ordered a fillet steak, and after pouring the paper sauce, she discovered that it needs to be more cooked. With a big smile, they took the steak, and brought her another one. We had a great night, and everything was just perfect :)

“Excellent from start to finish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

We have just finished one of the best meals we have had in a long time. The starters were excellent (the Ceasar salad was the best we've ever had). The main courses were prepared to perfection and they were a real joy to eat. The service was perfect - timely rather than too slow or too fast. Varied mix of people if you want to people-watch. All in all, a very good start to the evening. We will definitely visit again.

“Does what it says on the Tin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Goodman's a steak restaurant in the City. "Does what it says on the Tin", if a little pricey - but then again you expect that in EC2.
