Hawksmoor Air Street is a 235 cover seafood and steak restaurant, with the menu equally divided between fish, seafood and the legendary steaks which have made Hawksmoor a firm Londoners' favourite. Ten floor to ceiling stained glass arched windows will form the main feature of the interior, flooding the space with light and allowing for views over Regent Street.

Our new bar menu is now available and you can book a table over the phone on 0207 406 3981. Dishes include Langoustine scampi, Ox cheek & roasted bone marrow and house pickles and Bacon Double Cheeseburger. But you don’t need to eat to come to Air Street bar. A stone’s throw from Piccadilly Circus, it’s a perfect spot for some drinks pre or post other West End fun.

Lovely waitstaff, accommodating, friendly!

Food was a little hit and miss this night.
Carpaccio was excellent.
Fennel and watercress salad a little watery and not as crisp.
250g ribeye cooked perfectly medium rare as respirated.
Beef dripping fries a little underwhelming.

And the sticky toffee pudding is still the best.

So overall, quite happy.

One note: the main dining room can be almost uncomfortably noisy, On this night, at least two tables of obnoxiously loud diners, including one dropping f-bombs as they vented about their colleagues, bosses, and corporate systems training. Even my AirPods couldn’t block out that conversation!

it was a very pleasant stay and we enjoyed the nice ambient. The food was very delicious! The waiter was very smart. The noise was bearable. The Price was in the upper region. Unfortunately no draft beer...

My husband and I had the pre-theatre menu. I wish I hadn't chosen the starter, two Yorkshire puddings with beef. It was bland and the Yorkshires were overdone. We upgraded our mains to fillet steaks, which was a £6 supplement charge. My steak was supposed to be medium but was cooked all the way through. I could only manage half as it was like cardboard. My husbands steak wasn't much better.

Sunday Roast is so delicious and the mac and cheese on the side is a must. The service is outstanding and the wine selection (is impressively extensive albeit a little on the expensive side. All in all, a lovely Sunday afternoon treat!

Sunday roast Air street was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the Yorkshire rhubarb sundae. The Air Street restaurant is very noisy though and for that reason we much prefer Knightsbridge or Guildhall.

Very good steaks for three of us and my fish (grilled turbot) was delicious. All the sides were very good except the beef dripping fries which were pale and a bit soggy. Cocktails were fantastic - one of us is a picky martini drinker and his was 'perfect'. Not too loud, cosy booth and we could hear each other speak - rare in London restaurants!

Shocking behaviour from some guests and no intervention from the Hawksmoor team... too busy and felt very much like a MacDonald’s at 2am.

Very sad to see a good name such as Hawksmoor come to this standard.

Not my expectation as have been several times in the past at various locations .

Group of 4 had a great dinner at the Air Street location. As expected, the steaks were outstanding. We had filets, sirloin, and a ribeye along with the bone marrow and peppercorn sauces. Sauces were very flavorable without distracting from the meats. Shared sides of mushrooms, caesar salad, creamed spinach and sweet potatoes. All were prepared perfectly. The toffee bread pudding with clotted cream topped off the dinner. Nice selection of wines at reasonable prices. Fun, original cocktails to start off the dinner. A good cross section of customers; couples, business people and some tourists like ourselves. Tab came to about 325 GBP for the 4 of us including drinks.

Not our best visit to Hawksmoor Air Street. T-bone ordered Med-Rare came up Med-well and Ribeye was over Med. No fuss to replace but hate returning food. Replacements, both Ribeyes where cooked exactly as ordered but not the super beefy taste we expected and usually get, perhaps just a bad cut? If we were not regulars to Hawksmoor chain and this was the first time it would not have encouraged a return visit from us, however, we will be back as it is one of our top restaurants.

It is a great venue and usually has a really nice atmosphere but the place was packed and the staff were under pressure serving too many tables.

Twice the waitress serving us forgot our drinks requests and when prompted, apologised and then forgot again. When the meal arrived, two of the portions of fries were luke warm at best and even though these were replaced it just takes away a positive meal experience. We sat down to eat for 8pm but our meal arrived at 9.15pm and then we had to part start whilst the fries came out again. I’ve eaten in this restaurant several times and this was not my usual experience. I hope you manage to resolve this.

What a wonderful evening. Had delicious pre dinner cocktails and after some great advice from the sommelier a great red wine. We had arrived during the Express Menu window so took the opportunity to have the three courses for £29! We started with the potted beef and bacon with Yorkshire puds and onion gravy. It’s such an amazing starter, with the best gravy I’ve had in a restaurant. For mains we had steak and triple cooked chips, and ordered extra side dishes of mac and cheese and spinach with lemon and garlic. All were delicious. We forced ourselves to have desserts and had a sundae and an almond cake with blood oranges. Such great quality food in a fab Art Deco room. Can’t wait to go back

Hawksmoor is always a great option for a good steak meal and excellent desserts! The service is very good and it's a fun place. My only criticism stems from the fact that, because it's such a large restaurant, you do have to wait quite a while for your food, but I'm just noting this because I always go there expecting a bit of a wait.

Good but...

Absolutely superb food. Not cheap but fabulous. 14oz rare ribeye was as good as I’ve had anywhere in the world, even NY.
But...
It is too loud and the acoustics are uncontrolled. The place needs slightly fewer tables and a lot of acoustic treatment. My ears were still ringing 2 hours after leaving.
