We went for the London Sunday Roast. There’s a reason Hawksmoor is mentioned in just about every recommendation for the Sunday Roast. It’s Outstanding. Also our service was second to no one.

Maybe just bad luck on the night, but I was expecting a lot more. From what I had read and expected the food was 'OK', but no more. The T Bone and Tomahawk were only available in gigantic cuts (which didn't suit 2 of us eating) and the Chateaubriand we settled on was perfectly OK, but I've definitely had better. Portion size was also debatable. We were recommended 3 sides for 2 people, but honestly, 3 each would have been nearer (if you're actually hungry and expecting a decent meal) The Ambassadors desert though was great!

The food was excellent and the portions were very generous.
We found the service poor and the servers not attentive. We had used plates sat in front of us for 10mins and we waited a further 15mins for the desert menus to arrive. This is unusual for Hawksmoor!
I don't feel that the service charge of £13 was justified, although we paid it.

午後6時に伺いました。
6:30まではお得なコースがあるようです。
私はセロリとマッシルームのサラダ、フィレステーキ、夫はシーザーサラダ、フィレステーキを注文しました。
セロリのサラダは今まで食べたことのないような独創的な味でしたが、とても美味しかったです。
ステーキも良い焼き加減で、ボリュームもちょうど良かったです。
接客はとてもフレンドリーでした。女性のスタッフの方が、私の隣に座りメニューの説明をしてくれて、日本にはない接客スタイルだなと思いました。
ワインのメニューも充実してて、スタッフの方の知識も豊富だと感じました。
ロンドンでの食事はあまり期待していなかったのですが、非常に満足な食事でした。

Visit on a Monday- took some nice wine in which the staff handled with the same care they would if you bought it from the restaurant. Outstanding food and service. If you are looking for the best steaks in London and to be served by knowledgeable and passionate staff- head here.

We went there for my partner’s special birthday and we were not disappointed. The fillet steak is a must try, their salad with English herbs is the best side I ever had. We were both very happy with the service, selection of wine, spirits and cocktails. Yes, it’s rather pricey but for special occasions it’s a special treat.

Being only our second visit to Hawksmoor, the first being over two years ago, we wondered why it had taken us so long to return. The overall quality of the service was outstanding, from the lady who took our coats through to the table service team who were attentive, helpful with advice on the menu of different cuts of meat and on the extensive wine list which has a good selection of wines by the glass (unlike some restaurants). The place was buzzy and very busy but that did not detract from the availability of table service staff to help out when needed. Hawksmoor is a very professionally run operation but with a friendly and personal approach to its clientele. Highly recommended.

Quite possibly my new favourite place for steak. I had the 400g (I think) Sirloin at £31, w/ chips and mac & cheese at an additional charge. The waitress was thankfully very conscious of my allergies, however, she implied I may not be able to have the chips in light of this, but I reminded her it’s just chips so I see no reason why not. She shortly confirmed with the chef this was fine.

A friend and I shared a sticky toffee pudding, which was nice, but I thought it’d be slightly bigger.

Good food, issue with free drink that turned into a reduced price drink but on receipt of Bill charged full price. The waiter kindly removed it from Bill but it was a bit embarrassing all the same. Food tasty but choices limited on express menu.

Planned here for an anniversary meal, the t-bone steak was delightful and the lobster roll was so good, it had my girlfriend telling her friends to visit here as soon as we left. The service also included an apple pie with custard with 'Happy Anniversary' on the plate in chocolate sauce. Very good wine and bourbon selection and the cocktails are good too. Would definitely visit again.

Delicious as always! The food is always good here, never had a bad meal. Service is exceptional and nothing is too much to ask for.
We had the roast which was lovely, my only slight complaint is that they don't give you enough meat. You get 2 small pieces of beef with a load of veg (I only got 2 roast potatoes sadly...) and a huge yorkshire pudding. We also got sides of cauliflower cheese and creamed spinach and we both left really full.
Had salted caramel rolos for dessert - very yummy!
Overall would definitely go back.

Fantastic venue with awesome atmosphere. Excellent service and an amazing rib eye followed by a tasty dessert. I've been to a few Steak Restaurants around the world but I would put Hawksmoor top of the list. I ordered my rib eye, medium rare plus and it was cooked to perfection. Looking forward till the next time.

I did not realise that the restaurant was downstairs, so no windows to people watch the world outside!!

I went with three friends and it was amazing! The quality of food was outstanding - the steak was so good! We were served by several different people, but they were all very friendly and attentive.
The food menu had an incredible choice - something for everyone. Amazing choice of wines, dessert wines and spirits, too.

I had to send my lobster roll back because there was a tiny amount of meat in it, and for £27 I felt like I was being completely ripped off. To their credit the manager offer to add more meat, which they did, but this item is seriously overpriced to the point of daylight robbery. A shame because this is not what their brand usually stands for...

Great restaurant with delicious food. All the items are quite highly priced, as is expected for a London steakhouse, however I do think it is slightly pricey and considering nothing is included with the steak at all, the sauces and sides' prices could be considered. All-in-all friendly staff and a great experience. Only issue was actually getting our reserved table - someone had checked in somehow using my name, and our table was taken. They were thankfully able to accommodate us straight away with another table, but I imagine this could have an issue on a busier evening.

Very poor indifferent service. No idea who server was supposed to be - we had 5 different people at the table at various points with none owning service. We had to wave to try and get attention on at least 2 occasions.
Salad came dressed despite a request for no dressing - didn’t bother sending back as food was literally drop and run.
Tomahawk not cooked as requested and no real apology. Just a “yeah that is medium/rare and not medium, do you want us to grill it more”. When returned it was plonked at the end of the table but again before we could turn to inspect, server had disappeared.
Would not recommend this branch - it’s a shambles.
