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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Very nice relaxed restaurant, amazing food and service excellent. Don't bother going to them other steak restaurant chains, this is by far the best."

  • "My favourite steak restaurant. Always good food and wine, excellent service."

  • "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 :)"

  • "Had a wonderful meal at Goodman. three of us had different steaks. For those who don't mind a bit of fat in their meat the rib eye is superb. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Will definitely return."

  • "This was my third visit to goodman and the food and service was very good I will be coming again 100%!"
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 31/07/2014
  • "We do business meetings almost every weekday the Goodmans. The quality of food and service have never gone down. Very friendly and knowledgeable service staff who are ready to give you advice on various type of cuts. I highly recommend."
    dined on 30/07/2014
  • "There was a problem with our order, no big deal. But they were super attentive, went way above and beyond to set things right. This is how every restaurant should be."
    dined on 22/07/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "They were accommodating when we had to shift our booking till later. Steak was excellent as always and service friendly but thorough. Will come again."
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "overall brilliant night and service was great . will defiantly return."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "Quality if the steak is so good that it's now a benchmark for me. Haven't found any other place as good."
    dined on 30/06/2014
  • "Love this place so much. The food is just amazing. They'd changed a few of the starters and desserts this time round too, so it was good to have a little change. The steak just melts in your mouth and the truffle mac & cheese is just brilliant. Fantastic service as well."
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "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"
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "Its not the best ambience, but the food is spot on, the service is good and there is good choice and good quality meat on offer. Always a reliable dinner choice, although a pricey one. Beer selection needs improving though."
    dined on 24/06/2014
  • "Hyped by the reviews. Our rib-eye was too fatty and flavourless. The only thing we liked were our sides - chips and salad! Paid a lot if money for poor quality steaks. Gaucho is much better."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "Fabulous porterhouse - maybe slightly too much on the medium side of medium rare.....but apart from that everything was excellent - particularly liked the "selection" of sauces Good wine suggestion too!"
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "Quality of the meat puts a certain Argentinean alternative to shame. Wine price has somewhat escalated, with an absence of a house bottle recommendation."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "The best steak you will ever have the pleasure of enjoying in London . prime USDA beef is exceptional and butter soft texture . All round excellent"
    dined on 13/06/2014
  • "Goodman's in Canary Wharf without a doubt are up there with the meat cuts they serve. Cooked to perfection whether you prefer raw to well done, they rival some of the strong competition"
    dined on 11/06/2014
  • "Great range of quality steaks with thoughtful and informed waiting staff. Sides are additional as seems the norm but all delicious. No doubting the star is the meat!"
    dined on 07/06/2014
  • "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. "
    dined on 06/06/2014
  • "expensive place, average service but the food is very good"
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "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 !"
    dined on 03/06/2014
  • "This is simply one of the best steak restraurants I've been too. They have an outstanding selection of steaks, aged on site, with a price range to suit eveyone. Their lunch specials are exceptional value and for the foodies they have a selection of more exotic cuts available."
    dined on 30/05/2014
  • "Had a great evening dining at Goodman restaurant. Been there a few times but wanted to introduce a few friends to the concept of having a proper steak meal and enjoying a great glass of red wine. Atmosphere is brilliant, not noisy where you can't hear the person opposite you and the service is top notch. We ordered a bottle of red and not once we saw our glass get empty as they kept coming round and topping up the glass. Overall a great night out for a celebration and would recommend to anyone who loves their steak!"

  • "I found a bit of metal wire in my starter, about 15mm long! A new starter was given to me & we were told the starters were FOC. Aside from the wire, starters were good. Main courses arrived with a complimentary lobster tail; an apology from the chef - nice gesture & delicious. Steaks were ok, just average. I expected more from 150 day corn fed animal. I often buy the Extra Special 28 day mature ribeye steak from Asda, which is far more tender and better flavoured. Chips were excellent & all the other sides were delicious bar the lobster mac & cheese; this smelt & tasted of vanilla, my girlfriend also agreed. I couldn't eat it, the waiter said I was probably detecting the flavour of corn, used in the sauce. Good drinks & deserts. "

  • "I booked Goodmans for my 20th Anniversary. Once taken to our table i mentioned it was our anniversary and I asked for a more romantic spot. They moved us and then brought over a complimentary glass of champagne which was a lovely surprise. The staff were excellent and informative talking us through the different cuts of steak they paid us enough attention without being pushy. The fillet steak was tender and the porterhouse was excellent all perfectly cooked and full of flavour. My partner ordered dessert and it came on a plate with happy 20th Anniversary written in chocolate on it which was a lovely touch. I would recommend going here for a lovely dinner amazing steak and good wine selection. I came away feeling very happy and full. "

  • "Very enjoyable. It's very unpretentious and so it doesn't promise too much and then fail to deliver, We liked it. Honest and smart - great combination. The aged meats were beautiful - as good as it gets in the USA. Our only annoyance was the smell of the cooking really seeped into our clothes and hair. Just bad luck we were seated too close to the kitchen. Next time, we'll know better and ask to sit in a different part of the restaurant. But bravo to the staff both in the kitchen and front of house."
