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.

  • Potentially the best steak in London
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 14/11/2014
    Food was great, service is excellence with the staff bringing you examples of their meat cuts along with the various types of steak on the board that is brought to your table. The staff have extensive knowledge of the meat too, explaining the additional tastes you'll receive if you go for either "Grain Fed", "Grass Fed" or have a steak with the bone in. There is also a wine specialist who can help you pick the perfect bottle for your taste. One of the best restaurants around.

    I love my steaks so my fiance wanted to treat me to a fine steak grill in London for my Birthday. Goodman was in one of the top steak recommendations in London and so we booked it for our special evening. From the get go we had few issues. Anyways we got there and I must say the service from our server was excellent. He was very enthusiastic and dedicated to his job. He explained us all the options in details regarding what kind of steaks they offer. I must say I was expecting a good steak however it fell too short to my expectation and obviously this is in Canaray Warf so the meals are very pricey in this part of the city. We did wanted to go for a fine dining but the ambience was more of a red lobster or chillies or a family restaurant. I wouldnt mind going again for a drink however I wouldnt go there for a meal because of the value to quality ratio. The area is excellent and very lively however me and my fiance were both extremely dissapointed with our meals. Since I live in Canada so dont know when I would have a chance to try again however I would most definitely not rate Goodman as a fine dining Steakhouse. I would add again that their service was definitely outstanding.

    I used to love Goodman's and visited the restaurant with family and friends a lot. This visit I brought along some work colleagues and was telling them about the fantastic food and service ... however when we arrived and sat down we were left for a good 15 minutes before anyone even acknowledged that we were sitting there. Our waitress was very busy and in the end another waiter came over to explain to my guests how the menu worked and then walked away without taking our order ... eventually we did get to order but there was a distinct lack of attention to our table. Considering our bill was over £350 and only three of us eating (one was vegan and could only eat the sides) with no wine I expected a top rate service.

    The restaurant is in a great location, overlooking the water in the Docks. The waitress was superb, she was friendly and very helpful. With our menus she brought over a large plate of example steaks to explain what they all were, how they taste and how they can be cooked. One of our steaks was very overcooked, I called the waitress over, who then went to get the manager, the manager could not be anymore apologetic, she took the steak away immediately and told us a new one would be brought back! With the new steak we also received some additional side dishes of spinach and chips :) I would give the overall experience including food 8/10 Would go again for sure. Thank you

    A beautiful quayside location in amongst the Skyscrapers. Tempura prawns and smoked salmon starters were a hit as were the fillets and sirloin we chose. Pleasingly, the menu wasn't overloaded with vast choices, just enough! Delicious side dishes we chose were handcut chips, lobster mac & cheese, creamy spinach and the green/tom/red onion salad with the best balsamic dressing I've had for a good while. Staff attentive. Cosy atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyable treat, thank you :)

    I love Goodman CW. It always has a great Gotham relaxed vibe about it and food is always reliably good. This time we had an amazing waiter, who clearly loved what he did and we had a richer experience for it, so that was a great bonus. The foos was exceptional as always. We shared a lobster roll (possibly best i have had outside the US) and a porterhouse steak. When I felt the steak was undercooked for me, it was no problem for them to cook it a little more without any fuss - just what you want. Go and have a great time!

    Very helpful and friendly waitress, however was completely confused when I asked if the USA beef had been fed with GM corn. Restaurant mostly packed with suits from Canary Wharf, so I would suggest on a weeknight this venue is more for business people than a special event or romantic dinner. Superb, warm bread rolls, beef Carpaccio just delicious and definitely a must have. Steaks were just good but not outstanding. My wife chose grass fed filet beef cooked just right, while my tenderloin (ordered medium-rare) was a little bit too rare. My fault!. Both steaks tender and decent portions, but unfortunately under-seasoned. Sides of chips, spinach and carrots with Pecan nuts very good. I may be tempted back, but not my first choice for a steak.

    We booked this because it enjoyed good reviews and was round the corner from our hotel. the premises is pleasantly situated quayside and specialises in steaks. I liked the manner in which the waiter explained the cuts of meat and prices, we ordered Rib eye, one bone on, one without the bone. It arrived really quickly(almost too quickly) but was superbly cooked, juicy, with that char grilled flavour. sides were good although a trifle pricey, and a big bonus, proper chips made with proper potatoes. Good wine list although a big mark up. The service charge was automatically added to the bill which some peopple don't like and it does take the discretion out of it. altogether though a pleasant experience.

    This time around wasn't the best. It was our third visit -- the meat was dry and the waiter this time wasn't the best either. Cristina the waitress has to be our favorite as she attends to customers differently and her recommendations are spot on. The only good thing was that I had asked for a booth in my reservation and they obliged.

Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the steaks and ever so friendly in a professional manner. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

    A group of us dined and were blown away by the fabulous service and the steaks were to die for! Beats the likes of Gaucho and Hawksmoor hands down! The beef carpaccio starter just melts in the mouth - worth going just for that. Accompanied by a fantastic selection of wines, cocktails and aperitifs, this is a must do for any special meal ... Pricy but worth it ... GO!

    I have eaten at this restaurant many times with customers and it has always been a great experience with superb steaks and very professional service. This was the first time I have taken my wife and unfortunately the standard didn't reach the usual Goodman heights. It could be that we ordered incorrectly because we ordered a porterhouse to share rather than asking for one each and this meant going slightly off menu to get one large enough. Either way, the steak we received was rare rather than medium rare, but the main issue was there was a large amount of gristle, which put us both off. I am giving the restaurant a high score more for its usual standards than the meal we had Saturday. I wonder whether it being a weekend made a difference?

    Our waitress did not speak english very well, nor did she actually serve us to a minimal standard. She took our order & that was it. We came between lunch & dinner; as soon as we ordered she re-wrote the board for meat choices for the dinner crowd…not impressed. We specifically went to Goodman's for the meat & the choice we wanted wasn't on the lunch menu, but saw it written on the dinner menu immediately after we ordered. Once we got our food, we did not see our waitress again. She was too busy chatting to her co-workers & filling out the dinner board. Another waitress noticed that our glasses were empty, she topped off our wine glasses & water. Overall, disappointing; especially for my partner who usually enjoys other Goodman locations.

But they could use more truffle flavour. The cocktails were not that brilliant, but the food was excellent and that's all that matters. Will definitely go back.

    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.
