I came to Hawksmoor Spitalfields for my birthday meal with my family last night and I don't usually review on Tripadvisor but after a great meal and evening, I thought I would!
We had a great waiter, I think his name was Alex, who was very personable and chatty but without being over the top or coming across as pestering us. He was very attentive and offered his advice on what to have - we couldn't fault him at all and were very impressed with him. The other waiter's seemed just as friendly and helpful!
The food was truly superb. There were 4 of us and our waiter advised to get a few starters to share and I am glad we listened as they were big portions. We had the Yorkshire pudding with potted beef, asparagus and the ribs and as much as I would like to say which of the 3 was my favourite, I couldn't pick - they were delicious. The Yorkshire pudding was something a bit different and worked really well, the asparagus was so fresh and cooked to perfection and the ribs were well flavoured and moist. Our mains were just as delicious - we had 2 x 900g prime rib (one medium rare, one medium) between 4 of us and the steak was perfectly cooked, seasoned well (I usually salt all my food and didn't touch the salt or pepper!). There was plently so we didn't manage it all but there wasn't much left over. We shared a few sides - spinach, mushrooms, macaroni cheese, all of which were very yummy and the triple cooked chips were incredible!! No room for desserts, unfortunately, but had I room for one I could have picked easily from the menu! All washed down with a few bottles of red wine. We ordered 2 bottles at the start of the meal and Alex, our waiter, advised it may be worth to buy a magnum and it actually worked in our favour price wise. Good selection of wines!
We went on a Monday night so I was unsure whether it would be busy or have an atmosphere but it was packed out and had a great atmosphere. Very laid back and not snooty at all like other steak restaurants but you still felt like you were having a top class dining experience. When they found out it was my birthday, they brought over a box of chocolates at the end of the meal for me - nice touch. I really couldn't fault it and would highly recommend! Can't wait to go again.
