Always really good food and a guaranteed nice afternoon or eve out. Lacks a kids menu and although some say not a kids eatery there are always folk in there with kids - even at service offering smaller portions of mains would be a help.

Place, Service and starter were very good, steak had to be sent back twice and the last time it came back was over cooked.
To be fair our lady who was serving us was fantastic and they took the steak off the bill so overall couldnt complain just had to grab a burger on the way home!! haha

By far one of the best meals we’ve ever had in Manchester. It’s very expensive; but so worth it. Highly recommend the creamer spinach and the cauliflower starter.

After visiting two Hawksmoor restaurants in London previously, I was keen to try the one in Manchester. It lived up to the reputation. I can’t quite give it 5 stars for value as it’s not cheap, but it’s not meant to be. It’s very high quality food backed up by top notch service....value for money is not its thing.

Pleasant space and good service were marred by a dull and unimaginative meal. The menu was definitely skewed towards steak eaters. The smoked mackerel starter was dominated by the potatoes. The celeriac and spelt main came with undercooked celeriac amidst a sea of stodgy spelt and the mushrooms were missing from one of our two dishes. The double espresso wasn't a patch on what I get from my local coffee shop.

We went to Hawksmoor for a very delayed works Christmas dinner. We had a truly wonderful time. Wonderful food and service and not overly formal. We’ll be back.

I had booked this restaurant for my boyfriends birthday as a surprise. We arrived and had a drink at the bar beforehand. Henry the bar tender was great. He answered our questions about drinks/cocktail and was so helpful. The food was outstanding, our waitress was very attentive. She kept our wine classes topped up almost without us noticing. My partner was advised to have the short rib pork belly for starter by our friend. Unfortunately they had ran out and the disappointment set in. However...when our starter of scallops arrived they also brought the pork belly too. The waitress stated there had been a miscommunication and knew how much he wanted it.

All in all we could not have asked for anything more. They didn’t charge us for the pork belly as it was an added extra. We also got a couple of complimentary cocktails at the end when they realised it was a birthday celebration.

I can not recommend this restaurant enough. For special occasions or just if your feeling flush and need a treat.

A huge thank you to all the staff. You all catered to our every need and are a credit to this company.

Incredible steak cooked to perfection! We ordered 800g porterhouse. Wish we could have ordered everything on the menu but will have to go back to try more of the gorgeous sides! Triple cooked chips were the Best chips I’ve ever had and the bone marrow gravey is the stuff dreams are made of!

Service was spot on as always though I do think on this occasion the food wasn’t as perfect as usual! Do t get me wrong it was still great but the last time we visited it was the best steak we had ever eaten! 😊
Extra care taken in my dessert to wish me a happy birthday.

We had the early diner menu which had a limited number of options, however we all had different dishes and all where excellent. I very rarely have steak but the meal was excellent and the steak was cooked perfectly. Excellent value for money and service in a very good atmosphere. Would definitely visit again.

I treated my fiancée to dinner with you last night for her 31st birthday after finding your restaurant online and discovering it as one of the best restaurants in Manchester (we’re from London).

The food was fantastic. The steaks were delicious and our starters and sides were lovely too. I also loved the decor and the waitresses during dinner were excellent.

At about 11:15pm or we went to the bar for a cocktail and the slick, professional service went right out the window:

The staff were just joking around. One of the bar girls threw a sponge the length of the bar to the sink, and there were about five members of staff drinking at the bar (taking up most of the bar) like costumers. They had a box of shoes on the bar and bags of clothes on the floor.

You should never have your own staff drinking at your bar while you’re still service customers it’s totally unacceptable and unprofessional in a lovely restaurant like yours.

Like I said, the food and service and everything during dinner was exceptional and also very good value for money. But I’m afraid your bar staff and the experience of drinking at the bar was a massive let down in stark contrast.

Best,

George

I was really looking forward to eating in your restaurant, and especially to having a nice steak as I believe that’s your speciality. However, both my wife and my steaks (both fillet) were cold - my wife prefers cool food so she was ok with it - however, this is not something that I can accept - so I politely handed it back to the waitress who offered to cook it further (which would obviously make it more cooked than I wanted) or bring a fresh one. I opted for a fresh one - which meant unfortunately my wife ended up eating on her own whilst I waited. When the fresh steak came out it was certainly warmer, but not hot - I didn’t send it back again as didn’t want to embarrass my wife, so I ate it - but didn’t enjoy it to be honest. It tasted (and had the texture) like it had been taken from the pass and popped back on the grill to warm up more, as it was very dry!

The waitress was very apologetic when I described the 2nd steak to be “fine..”, and she was very attentive all night.

But, service aside, our experience at your restaurant was a negative one, and I would not recommend any of my friends visiting if our experience is anything to go by - unless, that is, you are willing to invite us both back and serve us a meal which is cooked to, what I would think would be your expected standard, which will change our minds.

Food was just as incredible as we expected. Bone marrow gravy is always a win, pork ribs were excellent and the steak was amazing. The service was what really made the experience though. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel really comfortable and relaxed. Our waitress in the restaurant section, Amy, was especially good and made a real fuss for our birthdays. Paying a premium price but you receive a premium product. We will definitely be back!

My partner and I visited Hawksmoor as it was her 40th birthday. The food and service were superb. However, despite previously informing the restaurant of the occasion, I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t acknowledged and our table wasn’t in a great location.
Best steak ever though!

Good night, not sure I’d have the fillet steak again, a bit lacking in flavour compared to the rib eye, almost as if it had Ben in Water bath and then quickly put on the grill.
