Restaurant-nice, food nice ish, service pretty bad. The waitress sat on the seat next to me while taking the order, acted super casual.
She also spilled my etire drink on my lap and was slightly apologetic, but not bothered too much.

Everything was amazing, the food was cooked to perfection, the atmosphere was brilliant, drinks were divine and the service was excellent. The benches on the sides of the restaurant area are very comfy allowing us to relax after a long hard day :) Highly recommend for anyone visiting or working in Moorgate!

Disappointed after trying the one in Spitalfields. Had to wait a long time in between courses, the onion rings weren’t cooked and the presentation of food was lacking. Steak was excellent.

Amazing sharing breakfast, especially the beans! The cappuccinos could have been bigger or at least provide a larger option. The ambience let it down a little as the place is very large when there's not many people dining.

Outstanding as ever, great steaks, great service and the background noise actually makes it a nicer dining experience. Restaurants that are too quiet are pretentious, this is actually relaxing and enjoyable to have a conversation at a normal level.

I keep coming back to Hawksmoor, Guildhall is the favourite.

Really nice food. I went on a busy Friday night and it was packed and actually quite loud. You could hardly hear each other speaking. Would not reccomend for a date night, maybe different nights are quieter though. However for a night out with friends or colleagues its perfect

Great environment, amazing food, maybe a tiny but overpriced but at least good quality not as much sizes options available by 7:30pm on a Friday night at the board which is a shame. So ee had to get two different steaks cut.
Service to get table ready a but slow.
Overall a good place and experience could have been a lot better but still worth the visit and to be back.

Everything was great apart from:

- Delay to seating, although host was fantastic and made us comfortable whilst we wait.
- Someone ordered a fillet steak which was not cooked as requested and the quality of meat was not good.

Food and service were excellent, absolutely nothing to fault there.
It is very loud in the restaurant which resulted in having to speak very loud to be heard around our own table.

Food and service was execellent. They made a wonderful effort for my husband’s 30th birthday! I would definitely recommend. The noise level was high and if you are looking for a quiet romantic evening I wouldn’t recommend.

I ordered lobster Benedict however there was hardly any lobster in the dish and there was only a tiny bit on the side for decorative purposes, i feel that it was a blatant rip off charging me £18.00 for a dish that hardly had any lobster and was a complete waste of money, if you say its a lobster dish then then diner should expect that on the menu and not more scraps on the side, include service charge my bill came up to £20.25 for a non existent lobster Benedict which is unjustifiable.

First fillet arrived cold and blue, and I requested medium rare. This was sent back and I asked for a medium this time. The second one arrived not only after other people at my table were done with their plates, but... it was also rare. Staff didn't even bother to come by the table to ask if the second plate was any better. It was a quite disappointing experience for a steakhouse in this price range. Meal was deducted from the final bill, so at least that was handled right.

As always, excellent service, great environment and outstanding food. Your steak is the best in London and I always recommend everyone to visit! Its so tasty that a [peppercorn] sauce isn't event required. Will keep returning and visiting your other London restaurants! My favourite restaurant in London by far!!!

Eat there quite often, usually at the Guildhall. Arrived with a friend with dodgy kness so went down in goods lift in a stately manner and appeared from behind a curtan, deus ex machina.

Went on a Monday so free BYO.

Useful food suggestions from Valencian waitress even though she is a vegan. She served us very well.

Doddington salad is excellent (dodgy knees is a piscetarian). My steak was excellent. The chips are to die for (and perhaps from, but much later).

We shared a dessert with a glass of Pedro Ximeniz. Excellent.
