Théâtre menu excellent. We will go again without hesitation. Wanted to visit for ages, and we enjoyed the experience. The knowledge of the staff was particularly impressive.

Disappointed 3/5 of our party could not get the steak we would have liked due to none left and no lobster, scallops were gritty this was addressed by our waiter.

Food first rate as usual. Had a long wait between starters and mains, which was disappointing. However the mains were comped as a result, which was a nice gesture.

Great Service and food was fabulous. Only downside was the side portions being a little on the small side. Plus the standard fries that accompany a steak were quite thin and not much to them.
Aside from that it was faultless.

Went for a romantic meal. The restaurant was very busy and noisy. Service was average for a high standard establishment. Asked for a 750g chateaubriand as we planned on having that before set even arrived. Only to fine 550 was left to choose from. In the end spent close to £200 for two people and felt I’d had a lot better for that amount of money.

My wife and I agreed everything about our evening spent at Hawksmoor was exceptional. From the friendly staff, excellent service and top quality food and drink.
We will be recommending Hawksmoor to family and friends.

Great food, drinks and service . The steaks were perfectly cooked with tasty sides. The service was attentive without being overbearing. It has a lovely old school atmosphere, the cocktail bar is the nicest spot in the city.

I've been many times but on this occasion as a celebration. The staff were all very welcoming and made the meal extra special, taking care of my 7 year old's food requests and adding, unprompted, a little flourish to the dessert to mark the occasion. The food was the best I have had from the restaurant. So refreshing not to have a Christmas menu

Booked based upon a quick google search for Sunday Lunch in Manchester.
We both chose the Sunday Rump of Beef lunch, it was amazing. I do not eat veggies normally, but the buttered cabbage and the lovely carrots were amazing. Alongside a large YPudding, roasted garlic shallots and potatoes, it was fantastic. Notice i have not mentioned the beef, which was also fantastic, but it almost played 2nd fiddle to the rest of the plate. The gravy was tasty and they had an extensive (albeit expensive) wine list.
Part way through our dinner, our waiter was replaced and this is where the service basically disappeared, so table clearance took 20mins, top our own wine up, no additional water. But it wont stop us visiting again the food was that good.

Amazing Food with amazing service. I cannot recommend Hawksmoor enough. We went on a very busy Saturday night in Manchester and were very welcomed. We were shown to our table which was lovely and in a quiet corner of the restaurant but still part of the buzzing atmosphere of the place. Our waiter was superb, he was very friendly, informative and knowledgeable on both the food and the wine. I stuck to an all time favourite of scallops and was not disappointed, my husband had the Yorkshire puddings with potted beef and a deliciously rich onion gravy. The steaks were as you would expect absolutely beautiful and cooked perfectly with many choices for cuts and sizes etc. The sides we went for were amazing and complimented our steaks well. I must recommend the Mash and Gravy and the triple cooked chips. By this time were were feeling full but couldn't resist the Ambassadors dessert which was surprisingly light for a very rich chocolate based pudding. All in all we cannot wait to go back and will be recommending this to anyone visiting Manchester. I even came away with a recipe for mussel pate from our amazing waiter who took our dining experience at Hawksmoor from a 10 out of 10 to a 12. Thanks for a great night.

We thought our bar drinks for 2 g&ts were expensive at 20.00. I might e pect that in London but its too steep and damaged 1st impressions. The restarant I found to be noisy and that distracted from our own conversation however the food we had was very nice. We were sitted next to the till that perhaps could be relocated.

Food great service terrible. 30 mins for a drink and 1hr before any food arrived. Appreciate busy but try talking to your customers and keeping them informed or increase staff level to help them manage less tables better

Back again this coming week and have my fingers crossed its not a repeat.

The best steaks in Manchester. Busy likeable restaurant with cheerful & helpful staff.
On this visit with 6 in the Party, when taking the order one main course meal was missed by the waitress, but was quickly rectified and served when discovered. (fortunately a medium rare steak was required).
The restaurant chose not to charge for this meal for the oversight and temporary inconvenience, which was as unexpected as it was welcome. Very professional.
Looking forward to my next visit.

Excellent food and service as always at the Hawksmoors. It was a little disappointing having mentioned it being my husband’s birthday that our waiter didn’t acknowledge it at any point. The front desk did and another waiter told ours but nothing. Others around us were given a candle in their dessert.
