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.

Basically, a two course dinner for two people without wine (or any other drinks) came in at £120, not cheap! However, it really is very high quality food - especially if you like steaks - delicious, melt in the mouth, prime beef.

I'm a huge fan of Hawksmoor and believe they offer the best steak experience in London. Of the 3 I frequent - Spitalfields, Seven dials and Guildhall - I consider the original Spitalfields location to be the best - particularly now they've addressed the former service issues, although these had remarkably managed to become cherished by the clientele.

Had a great evening here, really good atmosphere! The steak is worth the trip on its own, probably one of the best steaks I've ever had! The service was very helpful, efficient & friendly. There's a good array of drinks on offer especially if you like your cocktails. It is pricey but certainly the quality of the steak is worth it! i would say it is ideal for a special occasion! Overall a really good quality steak house!

Hawksmoor regulars know just how good their food is but to the first timer the anticipation is just as mouth watering. I dined here with my son who is an avid supporter of great steak houses and this proved to be everything he had told it would be. From booking a table on spec the experience was superb. All staff were excellent and our personal waiter advised on which steak and the best size to order for both of us. The actual steaks were cooked to perfection and the taste was superb, so much so I feel I can still taste it 24 hours later. Well done to all at Spitalfields Hawksmoor your efforts were very much appreciated. Hope to see you again when next in London

Pricey but worth it, especially if it's a special occasion. The meat was absolutely amazing. Loved the unique touches too, nice to go to a different type if restaurant for a change. Not pretentious at all.
