We had a great experience at Hawksmoor while visiting London. We wouldn't have found it, except our friends live close by.

The chef cooked our steak to perfection and the sides were delicious.

Our server was friendly, attentive and had a great sense of humor.

Perfect for special occasions. I would gladly come back on our next trip to London.

Sensational steak at Hawksmoor.
Fantastic as always, went for the pork belly ribs to start followed by a selection of big steaks and sticky toffee pudding to finish. Steaks are cooked to perfection and will always go back. You get what you pay for and it is worth it.

Food was to be expected of a decent steakhouse, nothing to shout about, especially for the price you are paying. What's more defining (in a negative way) was the noise level - you have to strain your vocal chords the whole night in order to have a conversation. Difficult for me to go back again.

Full English took 45 mins to arrive. Client had to leave before finishing. Had to nag to get the food at all then it arrived without sausages which arrived 10 mins later. Had to ask 4 tines for the coffee we ordered. Over £60 for three breakfasts. Terrible service and value.

Service at the table was slow when we (two of us) first arrived but no problems once our order was taken. The waiter guided us through the choices and was friendly and helpful.

The food was delicious and I will be booking again for my sons 40th. We went on a Tuesday at 7.30 and the restaurant was very busy. We knew beforehand it would be noisy but the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly.

After always hearing such great things about Hawksmoor, we finally had a chance to go for a family birthday. The restaurant definitely lived up to its reputation, the service was fantastic and food was delicious. The staff had a great knowledge of the menu and could recommend dishes. The restaurant had a great buzz even on a Tuesday night! Drinks were delicious. Will definitely be visiting again with friends!

arranged breakfast with some friends - decided the best way to start the day would be to pack away some serious protein!! and that we did, bacon chops and 750gm pork house to share - it was superb needless to say. great way to set one up - needed the 20min walk to the office afterwards.

Booked a table at Hawksmoor for breakfast for 1. Seated immediately in empty dining room (it was 0710hrs). Attentive service, coffee ordered immediately. Ordered a Full English and orange juice. It was the best Full English I've ever had. Highlights were the really meaty sausage, deliciously cooked bacon and the sourdough toast which was superb. Portabello mushroom, eggs and hash brown were great and the trotter baked beans were nice if a little sweet for my palate. OK, it's not cheap but for a special breakfast, it's quite special. Service charge added to bill - menu states it goes to staff.

Wonderful dining room, great attentive staff and first rate food. The Chateaubriand, triple cooked fries and onion rings were amazing whilst the sticky toffee pudding is the best of its kind in London. No doubt. Highly recommend dining here.

Great steak at Hawksmoor as usual. Three of us shared a 900g Chateau briand with a nice bottle of red. A few sides to round things out - everyone left happy and satisfied. As ever the quality of the steak is superb - thanks Hawksmoor 👍🏻

Great food and we had excellent service from our waitress who was friendly and very efficient without being overbearing. We were very well looked after. The food was good as one would expect from the Hawksmoor team. The restaurant was a little noisy due to a large table of young city yobs being overly drunk however, despite this we had a great evening.

I've visited different Hawksmoor restaurants because i am a fan of their food. Unfortunately this visit was a bit of a disaster. Our order was taken about 20 minutes after being seated. We then ended up waiting a further 30 minutes before any food arrived which was the first problem. There were two of us but just my breakfast arrived and was missing the sausage (from a full english). My friend's breakfast came out 5 minutes later along with my missing sausage but they got his order wrong (brought him a sausage sandwich rther than the sausage and egg muffin he ordered).
His correct order came out about 6 minutes after that.

Good food but seems like a stressed out kitchen on that visit?

It was a lovely birthday dinner for my boyfriend. Excellent service with one exception which we both found quite funny: when our dessert orders were taken I went to the ladies and during my absence my boyfriend was served with his dessert on a plate with Hapoy a birthday chocolate writing and a candle accompanied by a song by a member of staff. It certainly should have been timed better so that I was there too:) other than that nothing to fault!

The service was faultless throughout our meal so 5 stars for that.
Unfortunately our steaks were given to us incorrectly so once a few bits of steak and sides were taken they had to rectify the situation.
It got to the point that we then waited another maybe 15 minutes for our main meal which is understandable for new steak but still if the initial mistake hadn’t been made...
Couldn’t finish the steak nor dessert unfortunately
Also if I were to visit again I would ask for a table in the bar as the noise in the main seating area was deafening, couldn’t hear my friend and it was deafening sadly.
I will say again though the service was fantastic so just a series of unfortunate events led to an unpleasant experience :-(
