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.

Had the loveliest meal. Laszlo attended to us and was very helpful with the menu choices. At the end of the meal we were greeted by a surprise dessert to celebrate our anniversary. Thank you, Laszlo and Goodman City!

Superb meat, excellent service and a good wine list available even by glass.
In my opinion, and according to many of my friesnds, It's probably the best place to eat a steak in London.

Business lunch and it was a perfect venue. Food was great (Sirloin and Rib-Eye Steak with chips and sides) and went down a treat. Wine was lovely (Argentina Malbec). Would recommend in a heart beat.

We came here for a double date hoping to have an intimate evening with lots of chatter and good food. We couldn't hear ourselves as it was so noisy. Steak was OK - I was disappointed as I've heard great things about Goodman. We got one of the specials on the board, Porterhouse and it was average. I much prefer Hawksmoor.
Wine was the best part of the evening to be honest, spanish red, delicious !

My fiancee and I had an amazing time at Goodmans Canary Wharf for his birthday, and so we were excited to try the City branch. Food was amazing - we shared a 900g chateaubriand with a side of chips and green beans. Steak was cooked perfectly with a beautiful char on the outside, and sides were fab, often we choose skinny fries rather than chunky but the chunky chips were delicious! It might have been sacrilege, but we enjoyed a cheeky bottle of pinot, that was dangerously smooth and light.
Service was wonderful, and our glasses were never empty apart from when we sadly finished the bottle...
Will definitely return!

Came here for an early Valentine’s Day celebration. Great food and great service. The mixed grill was especially delicious. Atmosphere could have been better though. Fairly lacking in any kind of atmosphere really. Clearly appealing to a sort of rowdy/laddish City crowd. Nice tables for two but probably not the best for Valentine’s I suppose. Good experience overall.

Great steak join in the City. Has a clubby atmosphere but starts with great barman mixing welcome drinks which we took to our table. I then found out my guest was a non meat eater but luckily the fish options were excellent too. the lunchtime set menu is great value and they have a good wine list to accompany. This is a rock solid City dining option.

Have been here many times for lunch and dinner but went pre theatre last week. Slightly different experience. Food and drink were still very good but something was missing - probably the normal buzz as the restaurant was not as busy as usual so staff were so much more "in your face" than normal.

There is no doubt that London is an expensive city and you pay for location and you pay for quality of restaurant etc.....I get all that!!, but there comes a point particularly if you are paying for it privately that 4 glasses of wine, 2 starters and 2 steaks at £176 (no matter how good the steaks are) is just too much. No complaint about anything else. Really nice place!

Not nearly as good as the original off of Picadilly. A bit loud. A bit cavernous. Lots of honking stag dos and no background music. Also, the air conditioning was blasting, despite it being mid October.

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.
