A word from Goodman Canary Wharf
Goodman specialises in steak. Our chefs source the best beef from both sides of the Atlantic – from premium USDA corn-fed herds to grass-fed Scottish beef, grain-fed Irish Angus and rare breed Belted Galloway from the Lake District in England – to present a unique combination of a traditional British chophouse and classic New York grill. All of our meat is dry aged and cut on-site – which can be seen in our glass-walled dry-ageing room. Couple that with one of London’s largest collections of American red wine, fine single malt whiskeys and a couple of great traditional English beers on tap and you have a match made in carnivore heaven.

    I've been here a few times and quality is always outstanding. Great steak, wide wine selection and very good service. The only downside, as always, prices (really expensive).

    Came here on a Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. Was a rather late meal so we skipped starters and went straight to main courses. My 700gram bone-in-ribeye off the special blackboard menu was absolutely amazing! Cooked to perfection! My partner had the Lobster Roll and Chips which she enjoyed, had a small bite and I thought it was very nice. However it's all about the steak! White Chocolate Creme Brûlée to finish and this was also very nice but nothing outstanding. Service was great, quick and helpful. Looking forward to my next visit!

    Early evening meal at Goodmans, a 4th visit to this nicely located restaurant on south quay, one stop from the O2 on the tube. Good food, fast service, delicious steaks. Additional cost for chips at £5 is a bit cheeky, but overall this is not a value style restaurant, so if you are going to eat well, be prepared for the cost that goes with it. Friendly staff are very obliging. Next time it's the Lobster sandwich and chips.

    Dined out with my parents and girlfriend, we chose a variety of meats (New york sirloin, Goodman Rib-eye and Fillet) to share among us. Although not opted for any more expensive options, we enjoyed every bites of the meat. Truffle chips was a surprised highlight. Overall, I rate it as the best place for quality steak in London.

    We were disappointed to find that our booking with Open Table was not confirmed at Goodman Canary Wharf so they did not know we were coming - not a great start. The restaurant was very busy and the service was very slow - it took over half an hour before we were given a drink. We finally ordered our starters and had to ask several times if they were coming. They were so long coming the restaurant said when they finally arrived they would be foc. The food was excellent but overall the experience was disappointing.

    Succulent and flavoursome are the words that come to mind when thnking about Goodmans. My (and my fellow diner's) steak were somewhat medium albeit requested medium rare but nonetheless excellent tasting and tender pieces of meat. Definitely not cheap but the best steaks that I've had in the UK.

    I have eaten at quite a few steak resteraunts including (Hawksmoor and Gaucho). This for me tops them all! The steak is sooo tender it's effortless to cut and just melts in your mouth. I had a 400g Rib Eye and was not disappointed, nor were the other 4 guys who were with me. I had a lobster chowder for starter which was ok, I should of gone with the prawns which I have had in the past and are outstanding but I thought I'd be different. I ordered creamy potatoe purée and garlic mushrooms which I preferred to the chips and we shared a bottle of filino Malbec. The wine was very good so it's worth to enjoy your steak. For desert I had a coconut ice cream with a chocolate tiffin which was Lovley but I was very full! 9/10 from me.

    About the 4th or 5th time I've eaten at Goodman. Usually we go to the one in Mayfair - which we love both for the amazing food, but also the service. Glad to see we weren't disappointed as the service was fabulous at the one in Canary Wharf too. Steaks were amazing, as were the wonderful sides! We missed the beef dripping potatoes they serve in the Mayfair one though (having said that, the truffle chips were still incredible). Wouldn't be great on your wallet or waist size as a regular indulgence, but is perfect for those special occasions :)

  • Amazing steak, less keen on extras

    Dined on 1/8/2014
    We'd never eaten here before, and our waiter spent a good bit of time explaining the different cuts and helping us make our choices. We had the 550g Porterhouse steaks and they were fantastic. However, we didn't enjoy the extras so much. I found the truffle chips were far too oily for my taste, and worse they were very inconsistently shaped, meaning I had half a bowl of little slivers of greasy potato. My wife's chips were slightly better but even oilier. My starter, the crayfish and lobster cocktail was very nice, although it contained very little of the latter, so I felt it was very expensive.We found the ambience a little odd too, it was prententious in places (leaning over my steak to fill my glass of water), and very casual in others.

    Goodman's steaks are the best in London. We live nearby and usually splurge for our birthday and other celebrations. The wine list is extensive and well chosen. The steaks are from a variety of regions, so there's something there for all tastes. It's pricey, but you won't be disappointed. Service is top notch as would be expected.

    Nice place and good service. The rib eye we had was very good but the choice of sizes was really limited. What you see on the menu is not the "real" selection, rather a board they carry around with fixed cuts you have to choose from. So if you want to share a 600 gram cut and they only have a 900 one, you have to go with the 900. With the prices it's not ideal I think. For business dinners this is a great place.

    would have been a better experience had the mens washroom not been flooded and our server obviously not having a good day, We waited a good ten minutes before we were seen by the original waitress, then a new waiter appeared who obviously didnt like working there. Surly would have been an understatement I think he was personally affronted when I said we were not ready to order dessert a minute after he gave us the menu. Not bad considering the £25 odd service charge added to the bill. I have had some very good meals and enjoyed this place bvefore but never again. Recommend any other day bar friday night

    Really great quality meat (we had ribeye and porterhouse), well prepared and cooked to perfection. Good sized portions at good value. Staff helpful at explaining and presenting cuts. Great for a meat-loving man. Starters also tasty especially prawn tempura. Not so keen on the dessert though, somewhat bland and portions too large for sweets... just eat all your main and don't save any room for later. Wine list varied and reasonably priced.

    Quality of the meat puts a certain Argentinean alternative to shame. Wine price has somewhat escalated, with an absence of a house bottle recommendation.

    We live near this restaurant and the food had always been of top quality. Took some friends here on Thursday night after hyping up the quality of the food but was left dissapointed and a little embarrassed. The porterhouse steaks we had ordered just tasted very bland on this occasion, this is why I marked down on quality of food. . The waitress did offered to replace the steaks but we had eaten half of it by this time. Without requesting the steaks were removed from the bill. I really like this restaurant and hope this was just a blip.

    All three steaks we ordered were overcooked from how we asked for them to be done. The manager did offer to get us new ones cooked and deducted the cost from the bill. Only one of our group chose to have a new one but it took ages so by the time it arrived he didn't want it and others had finished ! Can't fault the service to rectify the problem but it shouldn't happen in the first place !
