Hawksmoor Air Street
A steak served on its own for £31. Any common sense on how tge item is prised
We had a Sunday lunch, however they had run out of beef - as a replacement we had a rump steak with all the trimmings of a Sunday lunch & it was delicious. Every element was cooked very well and our steaks were cooked to temperature perfectly. Our server was very polite but seemed nervous and jittery.
The ambiance was excellent and the music was nice but didn't mean we had to speak any louder than usual.
I would 100% recommend the Hawksmoor as the food was fantastic as is the venue.
Great place to eat if you like meat and fish - purpose of my visit was to have a Sunday Roast so can only comment on the beef - which came pink in the middle. There is a well-done option if you prefer your meat that way.
3 good slices of meat with accompanying vegetables and a monumental Yorkshire Pudding. Bone marrow gravy in a separate jug, with a decent (large) dish of "proper" (hot) horseradish sauce. English mustard and other condiments available by separate negotiation
Beef was tasty (ie it tasted of beef, not just a textural slab of "mystery meat") and melt in mouth tender. vegetables well cooked: expect crispy roast potatoes, no-frills (lateral cut) carrots and buttered greens.
If anything, the spuds were a little too crispy on the outside for my liking - but the insides yielded to the application of the wonderful gravy.
The carrots reminded me of an "old school" school dinners - cut from big roots in broad "rustic" slices - no julienne here...perfectly cooked though and a lot of them. If you like lots of perfectly cooked carroty coins - this is the place for you.
The greens (presumably the butter English greens from the Sides Menu) were a little disappointing - less is more, but at Hawksmoor, more was more as you get quite a lot of leaves. Eat your Greens!
The plate will be embellished with half a roasted shallot and half a head of roasted garlic. Sadly my dining companion got the bigger half...
Vast wine selection divided up into neat sections Wine, Reserve and Fine etc to aid your choice - a couple of bottles [Red] <£30, several by the glass
I really liked the experience here, relaxed atmosphere and great food.
Staff made you feel welcome rather than an inconvenience. Food was delivered in a timely manner - by which it was still hot when it was brought out to the table. Not too close to our fellow diners and overall conversation friendly ambiance on a busy Sunday service. Music was very much background
Absolutely delicious roast with a equally delicious champagne Charlie.
Meat was cooked beautifully
Great food, lovely drinks, could work on the deserts :)
Great night out , busy and fun. Food delicious not cheap but for great steak very good
Felt that for the prices charged the food atmosphere and service was below average and then proceeded to add a £25 service charge ( which we didn’t pay) wouldn’t revisit
For a steak restaurant I expect them to be capable of cooking and serving 3 steaks to 3 people correctly. I do not expect to have to swap plates across the table to receive the steak I ordered. I also expect the toilets to be functional! I don’t object to paying the price if everything is perfect, but £71 for a fillet steak, 3 field mushrooms, a third of a bottle of Malbec (bottle price £46) and a latte is over the top when the factors mentioned above leave a taste of disappointment rather than satisfaction.
A mixed experience. Ordered the express menu, but then waited 25 minutes for a drink. So ended up drinking cocktails with steak, not the end of the world, but not ideal. Ordered some red wine and this turned up near the end of our meal. Loads of staff, so couldn't really work out why this should have happened. Food was OK - rump and chips were cooked to order, served with a tiny bit of watercress, and the dessert we tried (apple pie) was excellent. A bill of £120 for one course, one pudding, two glasses of wine and two cocktails isn't exactly high value, so poor service (automatically added to the bill) meant that overall we wouldn't rush back.
Always love dining at Hawksmoor, this occasion was no exception. Fantastic service and excellent food.
This is my favourite branch of Hawksmoor for the stunning Art Deco detailing. The steaks on my last visit were as sensational as always, as were our other courses. I had bought two friends as guests for a treat and they both commented that these were the best steaks they had had at a restaurant.
Absolutely fabulous service. The wait staff gave us suggestions and explained everything to us thoroughly. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking to cross Hawksmoor off their “Great steak chase”. By far one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had.
Overall, the experience was a good one. The quality of the food was tasty and well presented. The space itself is lovely. We took family who were visiting London for the first time. Unfortunately, we felt service was less than expected as our order was forgotten or wrong throughout the meal with poor explanations given to questions asked. We’ve been to Hawksmoor previously and loved it so this was disappointing.
Had a fab time at the Air street branch. Been several times before and it never disappoints.
Steaks and Shakey Petes are always en pointe. Service always friendly.
Another fantastic meal at Hawksmoor to treat my parents. We were very well looked after with attentive service and fabulous food.
A great restaurant. Always a pleasure to eat there
Great food great surroundings great service been before will go again and Monday bring your own wine for a corkage charge is fantastic
Excellent food and service but a big pricy. A great place for a special occasion
This restaurant was recommended and it lived up to its recommendation. The steak was superb, staff very attentive, friendly and helpful. A very relaxed ambience.
We chose Hawksmoor to celebrate my Partners birthday - everything about the whole evening was excellent. The Chateaubriand was out of this world. Fabulous from start to end.
Great food with great service b
Thanks to the waiter that served us (very perceptive) and came up with helpful suggestions to make sure our orders met our needs. I’m definitely coming back
Early pre-theatre ‘express menu’. Service in the bar while we waited for our table wasn’t great - the waitress insisted on finding my name on the bookings list before taking our drinks order (which took ages - apparently my fault for having a double barrelled name!) Great non-alcoholic ginger beer though.
Service when seated was excellent. Great Caesar salad and fantastic chips. My rump steak was served perfectly medium rare, as requested, but my husband’s was way over - medium bordering on well done. Our waiter agreed and quickly changed it whilst we shared my steak, which we appreciated. Of course these things happen but in a steak focused restaurant it isn’t ideal and it left us with no time to order deserts.
Decent value given the quality of the produce, (most of) the cooking and service in the restaurant. It’s worth pointing out that the pre/post theatre express menus aren’t a bargain (not that they claim to be). You’ll
get the same dishes for almost the same price if you order from the a la carte menu (bearing in mind that the steak on the express menu isn’t exactly large.
So - not quite up to the standards of the Spitalfields branch but a very enjoyable dinner non the less. Thank you!
Having now been to all the Hawkesmoor Restaurants in London, I can now say that Air Street is my second favourite. Everything you expect from Hawksmoor with awesome food and service plus a really great ambience.
Loved this place the first time I came last year, was a little disappointed as I felt the food wasn’t as nice as last time I came
As always the food, ambience and team were outstanding.
Great food in a great setting. All staff friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere lots of people in there but doesn’t feel crowded or too busy. Food served quickly. Highly recommended.
Birthday plan didn’t quite go to plan despite me writing it in the booking and informing 3 members of staff including the waiter.
However excellent food
Decor is alittle dated
Service was not great...who was our primary waitress? Not once did someone come to the table to see how our meal was....my companion sat with an empty wine glass the entire meal and not once was she offered a refill
As part of the hospitality industry myself, quality service and food sit at the forefront of my dining experience! My waitress was knowledgeable with an incontestable charm, anticipating our needs and being there even when service was not busy. Will definitely recommend it over and over again as it’s always been consistent which is what we are expecting!
Thank you to everyone, including the hard working chefs, who work excruciating hours for the high of service! Andrei
bigger and airly space than goodman, also quiet than goodman Too.
now I prefer Hawksmoor than goodman haha
Great. As always.
Delicious food and wine!
Solid as always, just food you want to eat, no fussing just a great time.
They maybe known for steak, but their pastry chef deserves immense credit also, hazel but praline dish was spectacular.
Freezing! Dover sole over cooked. Never again. Don’t think they counted on cold weather. Couldn’t wait to leave.
Frood presentation mmmm
Food was great and well cooked to write about of liking.
Service, the first at entrance was very smart , however when we had our waiters and other waiters were quite casual .
Although greeted cheerily upon arrival we seemed to be a burden to some of the staff when we got upstairs. We’d asked to be booked into the bar so we could have both the bar & a-la carte menu but when I tried ordering the burger I was told it wasn’t possible but when I asked for this to be double checked I was begrudgingly told it was ok but I’d have to pay for the chips as that was how it was! The steak my wife had was ok but slightly over but although I was told the burger I ordered would be well done it was actually burnt & quite acrid to taste. There were other things slightly wrong which all seemed to be on my order so I was happy to be rushed out of there as I had enough by then.
Steak was over cooked and service was ok but not great.
