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.

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

This was our first visit to Goodman, and the food was excellent. We usually choose Hawksmoor for a steakhouse and to be honest the two are very similar in terms of quality and price. Preferred the sides at Goodmans, especially the mac n cheese! The only let down was how noisy the restaurant was. It was very busy and it felt more like a bar atmosphere than a restaurant. On the whole though I would recommend as the food was great.

“Great food, excellent service”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

I went to Goodman on Thursday evening with my wife and some friends of mine. We had a table of 7 and I have to say our waitress was excellent. The starters were cooked to perfection, the meat was full of flavour and cooked just right. I was impressed that we didn't feel rushed at any point. I would highly recommend this place to anyone! It is expensive, but as always, you get what you pay for.

“Good ? man ? I dont think so...”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

My partner and I had dinner at Goodman last night after a recommendation from a friend. We had a 9.30pm booking, and the place was not very busy. We ordered 2 starters and a bottle of wine. The starters came out before the wine. When the wine arrived 15 mins later, it was the incorrect vintage (A Syrah that was 4 years younger than the wine list advised) and we were told it was the same price, so we sent it back and asked for the wine list again. After our waiter delivered the wine list she walked off and we waited another 15 minutes before I requested the manager and complained. The service improved from this point, however, we made a point to not pay for service. I was surprised they didn't provide the starters for gratis considering they were cold and horrible by the time the wine arrived!! The porter house steak we ordered was amazing, however, with a price tag of over £140 for both of us given the experience, we will not be returning to Goodman!!

“Good steak, very noisy, extremely expensive”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

As for title, good, but not worth the price, food, average service, and very, very noisy. Dined in the private room, and conversation across the table was impossible. Delicious starters, prawns tempura and lobster, and good selection of meat cuts, but nothing that you can find somewhere else much cheaper, or at least with nicer surroundings. Problem is, the place is no fun. Good cocktails though.
