Goodman specialises in steak. Our chefs source the best beef from both sides of the Atlantic – from USDA corn-fed herds to grass-fed Scottish beef, grain-fed Irish Angus and rare breed Belted Galloway from Devon – to present a uniquely British interpretation of a New York grill. All of our meat is matured on-site – you can see it for yourself in our glass-walled dry-ageing room – then we cook it over charcoal for a fabulously smoky flavour. Couple that with one of London’s largest collections of American red wine and you’ve a match made in carnivore heaven. Our City of London venue is just round the corner from the Bank of England.

Very traditional City restaurant with comfy seating and dark wood panelling. The night we went it was mainly groups of men having business dinners, but it's a welcoming venue for all. Food was delicious, my steak was cooked to perfection and the extra touch of a birthday cupcake as it was a celebratory meal was perfect after all that protein.

Was really looking forward to Goodman as I'd heard great things. Reception was great and the waiting staff very attentive. I was a little disappointed with the steak. It was a little over cooked and wasn't as tender as I'd have expected for the cut of meat.

This sits at the upper end of the steakhouse scale and whilst the food was good, it wasn't exceptional. My main pain point about the restaurant is that the seating is rather cramped - a table for four (with four people) feels tight, not only with the space on the table, but also with regards to elbow room when seated. Moreover, tables are very close to one another making getting into and out of your seat feel like some sort of escape-routine.

Nice food but for the price, I'd expect a little bit more comfort in the seating.

Phenomenal food and service!

I took my girlfriend to Goodman's for our anniversary, as we fancied a good steak dinner.

We were not disappointed: we were warmly welcomed at the entrance, our coats and bags stored in the cloakroom and were shown to our table.

The waiter took great care to explain the different options for beef cuts and helped us with the wine list, even allowing us to try 4 of the wines (served by the glass).

The meat was perfect: texture, flavour and temperature. The side dishes were very good as well (chips, mash, creamed spinach).

To top it all off, when we asked for the bill, it took a little longer and we were surprised to see that the waiter had prepared for us a chocolate cake and ice cream dish with 'Happy Anniversary' written in chocolate!

All in all, dining at this restaurant was a wonderful experience: perfect food and outstanding service. Will be going back soon!

I was there on a Wednesday night with a friend for a catch-up. Everything was good especially the service from our Irish waitress. The only disappointment - and probably a fairly significant one for a steak restaurant - was that a lot of the “cuts” from the special menu had already gone by the time we were ordering (not exactly late - our booking was 7pm). We chose a 750g USDA T-bone in the end (the porterhouses had all gone as had the more specialised cuts). I wouldn’t say either of us are massive eaters - I’ve struggled with a 400g fillet in the past - but we both felt we could’ve eaten the whole thing to ourselves without too much of a push (heavy bone?!). As it was there was enough food with the bread, starters, sides and the steak so it was no big deal in the context of the evening. The creme brûlée dessert was particularly good (I’m not generally a big dessert fan). The steak itself was nicely cooked so maybe the lesson is to go early next time, or order from the standard menu?!

Having frequented other steak restaurants of a similar nature I decided to book our annual FGS dinner somewhere different but with all members of our society loving steak there was one place we had to experience.

So off to Goodman's we went and started the night with a selection of gins. Once at the table we were presented with the specials board which our waitress ran through and explained fully.

We settled on a variety of steaks across the table with varied sides to share. Not too shabby so far.

The wine that we chose was by no means top price but I would consider it a bit pricey compared to other restaurants where the selection was of equal variance.

The whole experience was great and the food was top notch but with the pricey wine and considerable service charge for a table of four, the whole meal was very expensive.

I would recommend you go, but be warned and make sure you're not close to your credit card limit.

Can’t go wrong with goodmans.

Food was good... we ordered beef capachio and prawn tempura which were fluffy yet crispy. 1kg porterhouse steak with mac n cheese, mash potatoes and creamed spinach. All food was typically aligned to goodmans Standard.

Services was good, waiters/waitresses very helpful too.

We met for a drink in the bar, which was really nice. Then moved to the table and had shared starters and shared mains with sides.

Really really good food. The staff were very helpful and generous but a bit slow in getting everything out / keeping glasses filled.
