    I took my partner to this restaurant to treat him for being such an amazing boyfriend, and boy did I treat myself in the process. This isn't just any roast, this is a Hawksmoor roast! At £19.50 each, its a steal for the amazing presentation and delicious food that lays before you. The beef is the best i've ever tasted, cooked to perfection as it simply falls away from the knife as you cut in, the spuds that sit in the yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings was heavenly. I'm going to dream about this dinner for months to come and will be using any excuse to go back again! This is a MUST TRY! I cannot praise the staff enough, get down there now before they have to start waiting lists for being so popular!

    Great food, great atmosphere and fantastic service. Our waitress, Emily, was very friendly and helped explain the menu as we had never been to the restaurant before. The quality of food was outstanding, Belly Ribs for a starter were wonderful, the rib eye steak was perfect. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for a special occasion - we will definitely be going back

    Having dined at other prestigious steak houses I would have to say Hawksmoor is my favourite by far. All food choices from starters to sides and of course the steak win hands down. That coupled with the amazing cocktail list and service make this a 5 star establishment.

  • Sunday Roast at Hawksmoor
    IMdinerVIP
    Dined on 12/10/2014
    Been to the Hawksmoor for the first time, primarily due to my boyfriend wanting to try the Sunday Roast which everyone was raving about. The roast was ok but nothing more special or better than at other pubs we've been to. I had the lemon sole which was really nice. Sides are far too expensive for what they were. Won't be returning.

    Hawksmoor is a meat lovers paradise and the steaks are absolutely fantastic. I can't recommend it enough. My girlfriend was a bit cold at the table as we were sat right beneath the AC unit but our waitress quickly picked up on this and was able to move us to a better table. Can't recommend enough.

    You hear enough about this place to imagine it's a transcendent dining experience. It is. Everything we had - from the cocktails to the marrow to the steaks themselves and even the coffees - was just excellent. Service was incredibly attentive without ever seeming fawning. It ain't cheap, but it's absolutely worth saving pennies for.

    Dined on 5/10/2014
    The Sunday roast is very good value for money - the portion is very substantial and the rump is delicious. My partner opted to have the ribeye with the Sunday roast trimmings which was double the price, expensive but worth it. The wine selection is very good but not a good selection of non-alcoholic drinks, a small coke is nearly £3 - which is ridiculous but it did not deter from the excellent meal. The service was impeccable, the staff very pleasant. I will most definitely return.

    Myself and my partner booked to go to Hawksmoor on Sunday 5th October and whilst livelier than what we're used to, it was a friendly atmosphere with efficient service. I had the scallops to start, whilst my partner had the crab, both of which were delicious. We then both opted for the roast, which was enormous!!! The beef was gorgeous and the roasted garlic a nice touch to the meal. After spending almost 30 minutes chowing down on the roast, we were both stuffed and dessert was not an option! We would definitely go again although a starter is definitely not required!! I also wished I had taken our waitresses name as she was friendly, efficient and made us feel extremely comfortable.

    Loved it! I'm not an expert on beef by any means, but I really enjoyed this. Good selection of meats, we shared a big old piece of prime rib which was grilled to perfection. The server was knowledgeable and attentive. Not a particularly formal restaurant, so it got somewhat noisy there as the night went on.

    It is really hard to go wrong with a Hawksmoor. They have arguably the best steaks in London. The atmosphere was much better at this branch than the Guildhall Branch and on par with the Seven Dials Branch. If you're looking for a special occasion to celebrate or just want to have a really nice meal, look no further. And please try the potted beef and bacon and yorkshires.

    These guys are consistent - perfectly seasoned steak, well cooked , and with bone marrow gravy it's a meal for the gods ! Excellent service, good choice of booze and although some unusual and over priced top end wines the reserve list is well catered for and generally well priced. I swiftly recommend this place over and above goodman's , both venues of which have taken many hundreds of pounds from me and being maybe my 10th visit to commercial street I'm yet to find fault. The bill is always a bit top heavy but given everything else works properly and as long as I'm not ordering too many bourbons, I reckon I'm all round happy.....After all , we all know in life, "you get what you pay for". Well done guys - see you soon.

    Hawksmoor is one of my favourites when it comes to steak. The pieces of meat are so flavoursome and cooked to perfection. The atmosphere of their restaurants is equally lovely. I have dined at seven dials and Spitalfields which are both fantastic.

    I enjoyed everything about my evening at Hawksmoor. Pre-dinner cocktails at the bar were delightful, as was the bartender. Service at table was great, a nice complement to the excellently prepared ribeye and fillet steaks (perfect temperature) that barely needed a sauce. Also had the baked beetroot, chips, mushrooms, sweet potato, lettuce/herb salad and sticky toffee sundae. I could go into gross detail to describe, but they were all tasty – zero complaints about the food. Great selection of wine and whisky as well to top off the meal. I would definitely go back and recommend this place to friends.

    This was my second time in the past month dining at Hawksmoor. I had read and heard a number of great reviews and recommendations and thought it worth a try - and I am definitely glad I did! The Sunday roast and steaks alike are absolutely fantastic, with every cut of meat cooked to perfection. The staff are extremely attentive (though not too much) and are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We had a lovely, relaxing afternoon and I couldn't recommend Hawksmoor more! I will definitely be visiting again!

    We had the Sunday roast and the beef was impeccable. As this is a steak restaurant the only roast on offer is beef, but they do have other things on the menu. The owners followed up our visit with an e-mail to ask how everything was, which was proactive and appreciated. My only gripe was that the sherry trifle, at £7, was absolutely scrumptious but felt far too small for the price. However, could not fault the food in any way, nor the service which was excellent. Will be returning!

    Certain dishes were vastly over priced for the quality delivered and service was average. Chateaubriand was chopped up and delivered in what looked like a pigs troff/bowl and didn't reflect the price charged for this classic high end dish.

    I/m afraid this place was overhyped or we just got it wrong for the occasion. We went for my husbands birthday, and expecting to spend around £150 (which we did) we were hoping to feel pampered, but we didn't. It felt incredibly informal, loud and the interior was very average. The tables were fairly shabby and there was just no attention to detail. The waitress was brash and although very helpful, she was a bit intense with how much information she wanted give us and how much she wanted to teach us! The beef was excellent however! Perhaps we don't get the Hawksmoor vibe, but I don't think we'll be going back.
