We visited for my husband’s birthday. We had dinner on a Friday night and the restaurant ambience was very nice and our waitress was fantastic. I had the crab Devon which was good and the scallops, they were excellent. My husband and my sister in law had the steak and they said it was okay. They said it was not seasoned & too dry. Overall it was a good experience.

Interior decor is warm and inviting but noise level was simply too high at dinner time— patrons at every table were practically shouting at the top of their lungs to be heard! Our server was delightful, responsive and professional. Sadly the steak was not good— we ordered the rib eye medium and it was served well done. We returned it and the kitchen cooked us a new steak, however it came back medium rare to rare! Even then the steak was dry. We ordered a few sides- roasted carrots, mash potatoes and creamed spinach- these were ok but not fantastic. Will not return again.

The beef lovers in our group chose this spot but even the non beef lovers were very pleased. The steak choices are amazing, The price tag steep but you will be served a superior steak worth the price . To my pleasure the chicken and cauliflower entree options were equally amazing. We avoided the starters so we could sample just about all the sides. Our favorite side was not even on the menu, spinach in garlic and lemon. Memorable meal. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Wine list had great selections at various price points.

We were six people, two Poms and four Aussies, the Aussies not having visited London before. We'd none of us ever been to Hawksmoor before but the reviews looked good. All six ordered the Sunday Roast, all six chose the cut of rump steak rather than the chicken.

For me, from the northern part of England, this was not a great roast dinner. The meat was fine, nothing wrong with that, and it was certainly pink as ordered. The rest of the plate however, was poor. The roast potatoes were roasted very lightly and had no crisp, golden exterior, fluffy white centre. The carrots were overcooked, soft and stodgy. The Yorkshire pudding I found a bit ridiculous - the size of a baby's head and taking up 2/3rds of the plate, and worse, overcooked, brown and crunchy. The size made it difficult to eat with a knife and fork. The gravy was thin and watery.

Rightly or wrongly, I'm not the type to complain in front of guests, because effectively we'd have ended up sending all six plates back. You know how it is, the meat's ok, so I'll just make do and manage, that kind of thinking. A bottle of Rioja accompanied the meal for four of us and though pricey, (I guess not for this part of London), it went down well.

The cloakroom attendants were excellent, polite and quick, and the young female waitress (with long brown hair) was faultless in every aspect. We had not met in a few years and were allowed to keep the table for three hours. When we eventually had to vacate, we were asked in a polite and professional way. So service, full marks. Food, most certainly not.
