Fantastic all round experience. Amazing food, excellent service despite being very busy, and a lovely acknowledgement of our birthday celebrations despite neither of us having room for dessert! A lovely treat, highly recommended!

Food was as flawless as ever! Only minor problem was charging for a cocktail that should have been free (booked using a discount code), but this was swiftly rectified by knocking both cocktails off the bill! Service always goes above and beyond at Hawksmoor.

The food was good, but the service was terrible. Took forever to get the food. Servers would rather talk amongst themselves than serve tables.

The steak was ok. It’s more of a pub environment. Staff in trainers. Guests in doc Martin boots, converse, jumpers, etc. There’s a very limited drinks menu by the glass.

We had the best time it was my husbands 40th and not having many child free days we wanted to really enjoy lunch. We honestly couldn’t have picked a better restaurant the restaurant, staff, service and food were exceptional.

I don’t think either me or my husband will have a steak the same again, until we come back!!.

Thank you to your staff for acknowledgement of my husbands birthday and also their knowledge of the menu and friendly nature.

Also the chocolate Matt was given were such a lovely touch!.

We are looking forward to the next time we can come back.

Would always recommend Hawksmoor but we’re sold out of the roasts and waiting staff weren’t as attentive as normal, going through the motions

The sunday roast was excellent but unfortunately the flat iron steak was over cooked and gristly. Could not fault the service, all staff were attentive and helpful. We would recommend the wine, roast and desserts and will give it another visit.

Meal was lovely, however was charged for 2 bottles of Prosecco instead of one. Only realised the mistake when we were on the train home and it was too late to go back to the restaurant. Have contacted the restaurant but not hopeful for a reply.

Thought we was going to a fine dining steak house. Not the case at all. Very basic inside with very laid back service.270 for 3 people on a tuesday afternoon was very over the top. Food was nice but expect to be wowed and wasnt.

Fantastic food, wonderful atmosphere and excellent service. This is the second time we have visited this restaurant and this time was equally enjoyable. We will definitely go back when visiting Manchester. The location is central, the decor is beautiful. We both had steaks and they were suburb, the wine list was wonderful and the service was very, very good. If you're in the area and you fancy very good food (especially steak) this place is definitely worth a visit.

Thank you for making my partners day extra special!
The service and attentiveness of the staff was exceptional...from the kindness and enthusiasm of the barman, preparing amazing cocktails before our meal to the charming waiter who could not have done anymore to make sure the food and wine pairing was just right. Thank you to you both! To then finish our day back at the bar with another cocktail or two and then be given our favourite cocktails prepared and put in little bottles to take away and enjoy on our train journey home was such a lovely touch! Will definitely be back again soon.
