From taking a seat waiting for the table with a fantastic cocktail to the food which was amazingly good.
Stunning food matched with stunning service.
Hawksmoor was our 3rd steak restaurant in Manchester after Gaucho and Grill on NY street, and also our least favourite. In fact I probably won’t be back. Mark, our server was excellent. The service was good from the moment we walked in the door. But no Pinot on the wine list. Steak came out bloody when asked for medium and again after I asked for it to be recooked. Peppercorn sauce was like water, very runny. Starters and desserts just didn’t appeal which is rare. Lobster we had to crack and tug the meat out like cannibals unlike GONYS which was prepared nicely for us. For a bill of £153 for two, which was equal or more to the others, I didn’t feel like I had my money’s worth.
Nice place - food was nice.
Did a promotional deal - would probably stick to the a la carte next time.
I still think drinks packages should be offered as some drinks in Manchester restaurants now are extortionate. £8/9 for a single rum & coke is a bit much.
What sets Hawksmoor apart?
Firstly, the formal surroundings are made to feel cosy, mainly due to to informality and efficiency of the service.
Secondly, thecquality of the food. Our shared Porterhouse (as suggested by our server) was outstanding, melt in the mouth fillet and tender but tightly more robust sirloin. Great sides.
Our steak was slightly delayed, so we received a complimentary portion of Short Rib Nuggets. Firstly, the delay was negligible, secondly the nuggets alone are worth the trip.
It's not cheap, although you can eat modestly if you choose, but it is, for me, a treat destination, but one I plan to treat myself to more often!
Fantastic visit from start to finish. The very best steak, that I have ever eaten. I'm a chef my self and was blown away. Perfect oysters to start and by pudding I was sweating I'd eaten so much. A fabulous birthday treat for my wife. Cannot wait to try the other Hawksmoor venues.
Fantastic from start to finish. Looses a star because I think the wine is quite pricey but can't fault the food.
Food was phenomenal, even better than I anticipated!
Great meal. Service was great from the beginning. Food was delicious.
Starter was huge and delicious, I would come back just for that. I prefer my steaks pan fried in garlic/herbs/butter etc so the steak wasn't amazing for me but that's personal preference. The only real negative for me was the waitress had very long hair and not tied up, that's just plain unhygienic in the restaurant industry. For an upmarket place I'd expect the basics to be met with hair tied up
Best Fug ribs I ever tasted mannnn!
Outstanding on every level. From booking the table, greeting, (exceptional) service, the quality of the food; we had the mackerel, mixed carrot salad and the lunch rump deal, plus a wonderful Portuguese Duoro.. lovely touches of quality service throughout.
This was the most beautiful meal I've ever had. A real treat. It was served by lovely staff and a great atmosphere! Highly recommend
Delicious food, wonderful service from kind, friendly staff who are passionate about the menu and a relaxed environment to enjoy the best steak I’ve ever had! Thank you for making my fiancé’s 30th special too!
It’s over priced for what it is. I was not blown away
Friendly, helpful staff.
Good menu choice.
We like well done steak, which I know chef's hate...but one steak arrived rare. This was re-cooked but came back charcoaled! Sadly this meant we didn't eat together and the steak wasn't nice.
The waitress did recognise this fact & amended the bill to reflect the problem.
The other two dishes were lovely and the sticky toffee pudding was amazing
Amazing food and service, loved every minute and would definitely go back.
Best meat in town ... customer service high end without dress a tie and shirt .
Good quality and not smoke in the eye .
The steak was great, the service and staff were really good, nothing negative at all.
Had a great sunday lunch- had the rump roast followed by salted caramel ice cream.
Food selection most interesting,Sunday roast quality and quantity fantastic and the
bottle of Rioja we chose was outstanding although a little pricey.
Definitely we will revisit.
Great first visit, food was fantastic. Service extremely good.
Amazing evening .. the service was incredible from the moment we arrived.
The bar service and cocktails were awesome .. love the shaky Pete ginger brew !!!
Food was amazing .. chateaubriand was perfect ..
Great food, great service.
Our waiter was attentive and took our personal tastes in to account to make an outstanding recommendation.
Brilliant restaurant experience, great food and fantastic service! Can not wait to return
Hands down the best steak I’ve ever had. Great service from the bar to the restaurant.
Fantastic food and service. Would highly recommend.
We went for our sons 21st birthday.
We had an awesome dude with the original booking time as our daughters train was delayed which meant she was running very late .
The staff were amazing and changed the booking time to suit . The maitre d and waiting on staff were second to none . The food was superb steak cooked to perfection .
A huge thank you for making it special for us
Lovely dining experience. Everything is just perfect about Hawksmoor.
As always brilliant steak in a relaxed atmosphere, good wines. Service is either a little slow or relaxed depending on how you view it - we prefer relaxed!
I always expect a great steak when I go to Hawksmoor, and I ALWAYS get one too! The Manchester restaurant is lovely, great environment and friendly and helpful staff too. Thanks!
The waiter seemed interested and advised us wrong on the size of our steak....
Been here many times. Never disappoints. Food and service excellent
10/10. Definitely coming back. Creamed spinach is unreal
Absolutely delicious as always. The bone marrow gravy is to die for! The service is also great and we are always made to feel welcome.
Could not fault service and food, will definitely return.
Fantastic service and food again special thanks to Rita our server for the meal and to Ross and the rest of staff my fillet steak was cooked to perfection looking forward to our next visit
Amazing as usual. Had oysters to start and had a mix of natural and Vietnamese. The Vietnamese ones were great but you can’t beat them on their own. Also had the crab on toast for the first time which was exceptional. So much crab meat. Had a big ribeye from the board which was ace and sides of mac n cheese, creamed spinach and bone marrow gravy. All incredible. See you again soon
Great service, good food but so noisy we couldn’t talk to each other. Not what I was expecting having read lots of reviews
This is the best restaurant in Manchester by far from starter to dessert everything is perfect every time. I have eaten here several times and never had a bad experience the creamed spinach is one of the nicest things I’ve ever tasted.
