I have had business lunches here on several occasions. I have found the food and service to be excellent in all respects.

Great food and service but the large room with high ceiling and wood panelling on the walls made it very noisy and it was almost impossible to have a conversation between the 5 of us.

The steak was underwhelming to say the least. If you're not going to serve anything on the plate besides the meat, it should be bigger.. it looked lonely. Also the taste was not very good for a rib-eye. I was expecting a comparable quality to Smith & Wollensky's or Gallagher's in the US. Very disappointed.

A regular at various Hawksmoors. Arrived at six and had the du jour menu which is very reonably priced and covered vegetarian and carnivore. Brought my own wine as it was a Monday so a whole meal for not a lot (YMMV).

Staff very friendly, alert, and quick but not hasty so a relaxed time. Reasonably full by the time we left and some interesting groups to watch.

Food was excellent as always. Seldom surprising and never disappointing, although a combination of strawberry and basil was an interesting surpise. But the Pedro Ximenez is always nice.

Poor quality of service and food.
Very disappointed by the quality of the service and food. The sirloin steak was below average. I ordered it medium-rare and it came almost well dene and chewy.
Waiting time for a drink to be delivered was longer than 5 min even though the restaurant was almost empty. I was expecting more for that price.

Seven of us went for Breakfast. Most of us had different food and drink, and it's just as well as we all wanted to try everything. Hawksmoor is not the cheapest, but the quality makes up for it. An excellent once-in-a-while treat. My only minor criticism was trying to get the staff attention to get the bill at the end. Everything up to that - including all the rest of the service, which was superb - was fantastic and worth getting up early for.

Good and quick service. Steaks were very good and the sides tasty. As always, seems a bit pricey, especially those sides but good quality and would return.

Went here on a Friday for a business meal. I would recommend you avoid for a meal on a Friday. It was full of drunk middle aged guys shouting at each other. Was like a zoo. I couldn't quite believe how bad it was. Normally HM steaks are good, but my filet was well over cooked and barely warm so it went back.

Staff were very good, I asked to move to the bar where I could hear myself think and they replaced my steak quickly.

Overall, very poor experience, but the staff were A1.

As always Hawksmoor delivered a great breakfast.
Service is quick, attentive and very friendly. The food is obviously outstanding.
The only thing worth improving is maybe their hot beverages offering.
But as always worth a visit.

We had an amazing breakfast we thought the food was incredible. The service was great can't remember our servers name but he made us feel welcome and comfortable. The only thing we found slightly odd was our drinks arrived at different times but it wasn't a big deal. Highly recommend it to everyone!

been many times before and the steak is unbeatable.
very good and professional service all the way as well
the shaky Pete cocktail is also a winner every time


negatives?
Starters were a bit boring, could have done without those
desert was rubbish (pavlova), could have done without that

overall, though, the steak won us over (again) and is reason enough to come back

(btw. it's very expensive, once you loaded up on sides and wine)

Our waitress was delightful and gave excellent service, she went out of her way to make everyone happy. The atmosphere was great and everyone enjoyed themselves. Would definitely go back. The sommelier recommended a fabulous wine that I would not normally go for, but complimented our meal perfectly.

I love Hawksmoor. It serves good modern British food at reasonable prices considering the large portions. We had the bone marrow, ribs, yorkshire puddings, then some buttered greens and triple cooked chips. The yorkies and the chips were amazing. My friends said they were the best they've ever had. We then had sticky toffee pudding which was nice but not special and I asked them to give me the brown butter icecream (which I love) instead of the clotted cream). A great meal, so why the lower overall rating etc? The noise! The level of noise in this particular location is deafening. Go for a boisterous after-work dinner with friends but if you want to chat or get romantic, choose another branch.

Food ultimately very tasty but when it first arrived the steaks had not been cooked properly/ as requested so had to be done again, which made for a very long lunch! The staff were very apologetic, however, and on the second attempt everything was cooked perfectly.

Friendly greeting on arrival. Sat in a great corner booth. Service was excellent throughout.
Food good, and drinks very good too. Maybe the serving staff could be dressed in a more unified fashion,but that’s just me being picky. Great afternoon.

Incredibly disappointing.
We order the breakfast ‘for 2 to share’ and only after leaving the restaurant realised that we didn’t receive everything listed in the meal.
Service is usually very good but perhaps we came at a bad time, the unlimited toast included in our order didn’t show up until we had finished our breakfast and trying to get another order of drinks was very difficult.
Great place for dinner but highly unlikely to return for the breakfast.
