    This is a good Sunday Lunch, I think it is slightly over priced given what the food is however it really is very well cooked. Only flaw was that Yorkshire puds were more cooked than I'd like them. But my bf and I just like ours crisp and a bit doughy. Might just be our preference though. You need to get in before 5 though as the Sunday Roasts sell out by then and its quite obvious why. Restaurant can be a bit loud.

    Fab, fab, fab! Booked for our anniversary meal was amazing.. Food was excellent and enormous! We had the bacon gravy and Yorkshire pud for starters..Delicious! Mains of course steak rib eye medium-rare was cooked to perfection. We ordered a lot of sides to share and the Mac-cheese was our fav. Don't leave without trying the Carmel salted rolos! Service was super, we were treated very well. We where early because of a disappointment at a pervious booking but they found us a earlier table. We had a great waited called Matt, who made lots of lovely recommendations and was very attentive. Fab night!

    This is second time I've been to hawksmoor, and I came back to see if the first poor experience was a one off - I'm sad to say it wasn't. Service was great. Wine and cocktails are great, but for the best steak in London you can't come here. Goodman is a level above this, if anything this feels like your run of the meal restaurant that just churns out customers one after another. For real AGED tender steak you have to go to Goodman.

    Went here for my first British Sunday roast experience as it was recommended by friends since I've recently relocated to the UK from Canada. The meat was amazing! It was a great first roast experience! The service was impeccable. Our waitress was soooo sweet and had great banter. The only things that disappointed me were the roast potatoes that were slightly dry, and the absence of cauliflower & cheese (which I was told was a roast MUST and was super looking forward to). Highly recommend! Great food, great staff, great atmosphere! :)

    This was the first time I had dined at Hawksmoor (apart from visiting the bar) but I had high expectations based on friends recommendations and great reviews. It did not disappoint. Food quality and service were exceptional, the waiter went through all the different kinds of steak cut in detail to help you come to a perfect choice. Be warned, however; it isn't cheap, but so worth it!

    A first visit to Hawsmoor confirmed the recommendations I had received. Starter of yorkshire puddings with potted beef and gravy; excellent steak, cooked to perfection with accompanying chips with a divinely moreish quality, beautiful al dente broccoli and luscious bone marrow gravy. All finished off with a restrained chocolate tart and creme fraiche. Superb dinner. Thanks Hawksmoor.

    We had a wonderful evening, starting with some champagne at the bar downstairs, as this was a special occasion. The service was excellent. We were told when our table was ready and were looked after in the same professional but friendly manner throughout the evening. The food was also excellent! Best steaks ever - cooked exactly as ordered. We will be back for the next special occasion!

    It's not cheap but it is worth it. If you love steak this is a fantastic place to eat. The waiters are knowledgable and professional. The choice whilst steak focused is wide - especially when it comes to the size of the cut. We went for lunch on a saturday and although quieter at 1pm when we arrived soon filled up. I would happily go back - perhaps for dinner one evening as the wine menu was fantastic.

    My partner and I attended for our 5 year anniversary as a special treat to ourselves. Hawksmoor is not a cheap restaurant, but you can tell you get what you pay for. Fast and attentive servers made you feel welcome, and a good range of meat options for the main course. We went with a 650g Chateaubriand steak to share which was about right for two people. A little salty exterior, but perfectly cooked internally. Sides : creamed spinach, sweet potato and mushrooms, the first two complimented the steak perfectly. I also tried the cornflake milkshake which is well worth an investment. This isn't the kind of place you'd go for a weekly meal owing to cost, but it's perfect for special occasions.

    Visited Hawksmoor Spitalfields for an early dinner with my two teenage children. The service was great, the servers could not be more helpful over which steaks to choose& how best to have them cooked. The cocktails were wonderful (both the alcoholic & soft versions) and the food when it appeared, delicious. Would recommend this restaurant & will definitely be returning.

    Amazing porterhouse steak done just as we wanted and with perfect seasoning. Very kind and helpful staff! The sides were perfect, we ordered creamed spinach which was outstanding plus fries with pepper sauce which was great too. Overall amazing experience. Reservation is a must as the place was packed on a week night.

    Choice of set or a la carte for Sunday. We both chose the set roast beef, with Yorkshire. We've been during the week, so stakes are great. Wine list and dessert are OK. Service is good, but be warned, the place is packed...a good thing of course, but don't expect to go and just get in, they are turning people away. We've gone amnay times and really enjoy...they have other locations, but we always got Spitalfields...

    Spent a mid Oct 14, Friday Evening in Hawksmoor. The service was very good and staff made us feel very welcome, the place was smart and trendy…..but Hawsmoor's main strength lays in its food. We had Rib-eyes for our main course and they were fantastic and the chips could possibly rate as the best I ever had. Could not fault any thing on our plates! Bill wasn't cheap, but well worth it! I would love to try the Sunday lunch!

    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!
