The best dinner we've ever had! Such nice staff, lovely atmosphere, and the steak & sides were to DIE for! Would 100% reccomend to anyone, and would DEFINITELY go there again, given the chance.

Prime rib for the second time. Still good, but like a few more crusty bits to be 5 star.

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.

Si quieres conocer un restaurante inglés distinto de un pub, con buena comida y a un precio no exhorbitado, lo recomiendo.
Si además quieres probar el típico asado inglés, los domingos lo sirven.

Hawksmoor came highly recommended by many friends, but to very honest, I found it VERY average. The service was ok and the food I thought was very over priced. We paid £200 for two of us and by the end of the evening I felt very let down. The side orders were very salty and my fillet steak was over cooked, not something you’d expect from a Steak house who pride themselves on their meats. I suppose I could have sent it back, but Rule of thumb, NEVER SEND YOUR FOOD BACK... that may just be a mith, but I wasn’t willing to take the risk. I will therefore proceed to find a better steak else where in London.

Wonderful fillet steaks, cooked just as requested for all five of us. My son enjoyed his half lobster starter and the ribs and potted beef with Yorkshires were also very good. We appreciated the candle in the apple pie for my sons 21st, even though we had not asked for it! It was a nice touch and made him feel special. Service was in good time and the waitress looked after us well. We would come again.

Hawksmoor is one of my favourite restaurants in London. This time it fell a little below expectations. The service was fantastic, as always, and the staff very friendly and knowledgeable. The slight issue was that the steak (medium) had a burnt and ropey quality on one side, quite dry really. My opinion is probably exaggerated as they normally offer the best, but at the same time I hope this is just an aberration.

Things seem to have slipped recently. Sides were wet and mushy, lacking flavour, and the steak was good but nothing special. After many years of visiting, it’s time to try elsewhere. Meh.

We each had steaks (the rump on the express menu, and a fillet) and both were spectacular in both flavour and quality of the meat.

Deserts were also exquisite.

First time at any Hawksmoor restaurant, as we don’t travel to Central London often and were going to the Albert Hall, we booked the pre theatre set menu
Good decision- from the time we arrived and dropped our coats in all the staff without exception were friendly , and helpful , as well as being good at their jobs
Hard to explain, but at some high end restaurants we have felt as if we are an inconvenience to the waiters- not like that here
Food was excellent and cooked to perfection
Two very satisfied customers
Thank you

Constantly amazed at the level of service at this restaurant. I have food allergies and the staff always takes great care to ensure my food is prepared with my allergies in mind. Darota as the final chef to ensure my food will not cause me harm does a fantastic job. Then my delicious food is served by a very charming and pleasant Marina who constantly checks on me to see if I am happy with the food and if I need any thing else to make the night better. Absolutely could not be happier with a restaurant in London.

We were surprised to see the restaurant was in the basement level with kind of Eastern European vibe. Overall the best steak I’ve had in London as advertised! Great service, great beer and wine pairings, very unique! The sticky toffee pudding paired with Laphroaig was a perfect ending! Our best find for a restaurant in the Kensington area!
