Goodman is a uniquely British interpretation of a New York grill, offering the best beef from both sides of the Atlantic. Most of the meat we serve in our Mayfair restaurant is from Nebraskan USDA corn-fed herds, but we also source many rare breeds from the Lake District, including Belted Galloway, Shorthorn and Longhorn cattle. Our other steaks include grain-fed Australian and Wagyu from Japan and Chile. Every steak on our blackboard has been dry-aged on site – it’s the best way to concentrate flavour – then we cook it over charcoal. To accompany your steak, we’re proud of the American red wine collection we have amassed – we know it’s the best way to complement red meat. Our Mayfair restaurant is located just off Regent Street.

We had asked for a quiet table and were indeed shown to a table in what should have been a quiet part of the restaurant. However, the tables near us were exceptionally noisy, which made conversation difficult. We would have been better off in the main part of the restaurant and perhaps the staff should have checked the situation at the time before allocating this particular table to us. Having said that, the food was very nice. The fillet steak was excellent, cooked perfectly (tip from our waitress: if you want medium-rare, ask for it to be cooked rare. It worked!) and the chips were superb. Staff were quite friendly and efficient. Overall a good meal. Shame about the noise.

Good steaks, waitress knowledgeably. Choice of steaks excellent.
Shame chocolate dessert mass produced, from order to service too quick to be anything else. Plum sauce, none existent. Tiny thin smear under dessert, therefore totally irrelevant.
Never had such a small 175mls wine!!!
Would go back, because of steak!

I’ve been to Goodman a few times before but this visit was for a friend who wanted to try it out, as she had never visited before.

I’ll say this first; the staff were absolutely fantastic. Highly attentive service combined with good humour and knowledgeable about their menu. A friend’s fillet was ordered medium-rare and I shared an 800g Porterhouse with another friend. The fillet was absolutely divine, albeit I would say, rare rather than medium rare. The Porterhouse...... well, if I’m completely honest, it was a little bit disappointing. It was ordered medium but would say it arrived as medium-rare and whilst the fillet cut was lovely and melt in the mouth, I felt the sirloin cut was very tough and a little flavourless.

Ordinarily, I would have brought this up in the restaurant as I am not shy in coming forward, especially when spending £230 on two courses for three people and a wine from the lower end of a fairly expensive wine list but as it was a belated 50th birthday meal, I felt it not appropriate at the time. Also, I was a little surprised that, because we left some of the sirloin from the Porterhouse cut on the platter, we were not asked if there was a problem when the waitress collected the plates. I would have expected that of a restaurant like Goodman.

All in all though, we had a nice evening and the atmosphere was good but I left feeling a little bit disappointed, which is a shame.

Everything I hoped for .. Was highly recommended by friends and it did not disappoint . Martini's to start , some outstanding reds from a very comprehensive wine list. Excellent perfectly cooked steaks and sides . Finally a measure of PAPPY VAN WINKLE’S FAMILY RESERVE 23 YEAR BOURBON .. Expensive afternoon .... but worth it .. We also kept the staff very entertained ... Will visit again soon.

Normally the meat is exceptional. I had the steak frite (apologies for spelling!) from the lunch menu - it’s good value, comes with fries and decent size sirloin. On this occasion I wasn’t very pleased with it, the meat was chewy (I had medium rare). It’s a real shame, because I’m a big fan of Goodmans but this wasn’t their finest meal. Hopefully better next time...

Dinner for 4 with 2 very fussy eaters - a difficult challenge!

One of the fussy eater couldn’t find a starter on the menu to her taste, but the kitchen made some garlic bread and helped her with her medium fillet selection. The other hard to please customer had beef carpaccio, which she found acceptable (I thought it was pretty good actually) followed by another medium Fillet .

The rest of enjoyed our Wagyu beef and buratta starters followed by a delicious, flavoursome medium-rare steak!

All washed down with a couple of bottles of fabulous Margaux!

The service was very attentive and I look forward to visiting again in the near future

I go to Goodman 3-4 times a Year. Sometimes I find it the best place where you can have a steak in London, sometimes not so much. This last time the meat was exceptional. I will probably go again in the next two weeks.

Steak - best I've ever had, just melt in your mouth, bursting with flavour!

Alternatives - vegetarian and fish options. We ordered the fish (seed crusted cod with seasonal veggies) and it was great, not just an afterthought to the steak menu.

service - welcoming and friendly.

wine - great!
