Great beef. Great service.
Very disappointed with the quality of the main course & pudding. The triple cooked chips were very pale & a small portion, they used to come in a separate copper container and looked far more appetising. The dressed salad as described in the menu accompanying the steak was in reality a small handful of watercress. The pudding was disappointing & not to your usual standard. It was all mixed up in one glass & didn’t look as good as usual. Overall our dining experience was disappointing which is sad as we’d come to come to celebrate a special occasion. Overall it felt like there had been a cost cutting exercise. As regular customers of the Hawksmoor in both London & Manchester I’m afraid we won’t be coming back & are looking at an alternate steak house in Manchester to go to in the future.
Food was excellent. Old spot belly ribs for starter melted in my mouth. Sirloin steak of a very sizeable portion for £31. Dripping fries excellent and a sticky toffee sundae for dessert. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Thanks a great experience again, we will return on our next visit to Manchester!
We had a beautiful meal for a birthday. The staff were extremely attentive, always topping up our water glasses, which is refreshing .
Great staff and food! Thank you :)
Lovey dining room and bar, food was average and expensive for what it was. The real let down was that the waiting staff gave diners the wrong steaks - I ordered rare and got medium, another dine ordered medium and got rare etc. I know it sounds like a little thing, but a good steak restaurant should get the basics right especially when you’re paying over £200 for lunch. None of the food was stand out - steak, chips, sides and starters were all distinctly average. Quite a few places in Manchester I would rate well above Hawksmoor now for simple steak and chips. What a shame!
Overpriced. Food was good, staff were lovely but it was far too expensive for what was served.
I loved the food and the staff was amazing and accommodating. Usually I’m very picky about food and restaurants in general but I really enjoyed Hawksmoor, food is cooked to perfection and nicest staff I ever met !
Excellent service right from entering the restaurant to leaving. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. The food was outstanding. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
This was our first visit, and we were a little disappointed. The room was very cold (I got my coat!) and initially we were sat next to the door and till which wasn't very relaxing! Although when I asked to move staff were good at sorting that, then we had a wobbly table!
We ordered wine that wasn't great, and one of the sides - the mushrooms weren't nice at all.
I think this may be the best meal and best service I have ever had! It was my mums's 60th Birthday treat and it certainly surpassed all of my expectations. The service is impeccable, the food is stunning and the atmosphere is lovely. I cannot recommend this place enough to anyone looking for a bit a of a treat!!
Was a lovely restaurant, nice choice of food, very well served
Impeccable service, the food was very good. The drinks menu extensive, the cocktails well made. A great night
Excellent steak. All food was of highest quality and well prepared and presented. Service was friendly and attentive.
Great first experience. Food exceeded expectations. Staff were lovely and very attentive. Will definitely recommend and be back again. Thank you
We had a lovely time. The food was very nice. When we booked the table for 6 we were asked what the occasion was, it was a 60th birthday, not sure why they ask the question because it was not acknowledged. overall we enjoyed the experience.
I've visited many times and the quality of food and service has always been a consistantly good level. This was a business meal and I'd say the food was even better than previous visits. The restaurant was busy and seemed quite noisy on first arriving, but this didn't cause any issues with holding a conversation or on the quality of service. Can't wait to go back again.
Food and service all great compared to normal. Disappointed but eh turn out. Given comp things. Not sorted or communicated. Very disappointed
Thoroughly enjoyed our experience and the food. Would definitely recommend to friends and certainly visit again.
If you are looking for delicious beef and sea food then the Hawksmoor is the place to go!
Excellent service and a great atmosphere.
The most amazing food, paired with a beautiful bottle of red, our waiter was brilliant, extremely knowledgable, honest and around when we needed him. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice meal or to celebrate a special occasion!
By far the best Sunday lunch in Manchester
Great atmosphere and very well laid out restaurant. Meat was good quality but food got cold very quickly
Wonderful day out for my mum
Ryb eye was excellent. Saff friendly. Atmosphere a bit noisy but fun. Beautiful place, architecture.
Flawless food and warm service.
Brilliant staff all smiling and welcoming! Made the visit well worth it. Food also incredible!!
Amazing meal for me , couple of issues for my friend but was dealt with by the brilliant member of staff. Would definitely return
Service and attentiveness was second to none, as was most of the food. The only disappointment was the rump steak, which was difficult to cut with a steak knife, even harder to chew and my husband had to spit half of it out as it was inedible. Other than that, food was amazing! Staff were amazing.
Phenomenal! Best steak I’ve had in this country 👌
Very noisy dining hall. Everything else was so good, save for the high decibels.
We love Hawsksmoor. Amazing steak and lovely staff. Our waiter was so helpful. We had a very lovely birthday meal, thank you Hawsksmoor.
Great food and atmosphere, service was really good too, helpful and friendly especially as my husband has food allergies. All wines were dry though, ok if that’s what you like but would have liked a few more rosé options. Other than that it was a lovely meal
Fantastic lunch, everything cooked to perfection. The Yorkshire pudding starter with potted beef and onion gravy is out of this world. Can’t wait to visit again on our next Manchester trip. Well worth paying that little extra for quality.
Hawksmoor is very much for carnivores. There is just one vegetarian option, which was very pleasant, but people essentially coming for the steaks. These are very good. The sizes are generous. It is a very expensive place, but you don't feel a fool for having paid it as the quality was excellent. The service is excellent, in that staff are engaged, not stuffy, formal or look like they don't know what they are serving. They really do. It is one of the very few restaurants I've been to in recent years where waiters knew exactly who had ordered what. Increasingly rare! It's in a beautiful old court building basement, so lots of public lavatory glazed bricks, a gorgeous unusually patterend parquet flooring and a lively ambience. Quite a masculine feel - couples go, but lots of groups of men too. For a splash out meal, I would certainly recommend.
Amazing food and staff! I felt like royality. 100% go again!!x
We booked late as were going to concert at Albert hall and didn’t eat before hand. Lovely welcome ,good service and the steaks were great as were the triple cooked chips. Only comment is that it is expensive ,drinks sides and steakslovely but expensive. Steaks come on their own so adding veg, chips and a sauce really bump the cost up.
Whilst our ribeye steak was completely delicious, the bone marrow with onions was hugely under seasoned. The spring greens were also cooked beyond saving. But the main reason for my mid range review is the fact we had travelled to eat here, staying centrally before an early flight the following day for a 30th birthday trip with all intention of having scallops to start and surf and turf for main, to be told after being seated they had neither scallops or lobster. I appreciate the importance of fresh quality produce but after anticipating this meal since booking in November we were understandably disappointed.
The staff and restaurant are both inviting and we would probably return just for the steak and choose our sides differently.
Not really relevant to the food but I have to say thanks to the lovely receptionist who was so kind and attentive when I literally fell into the restaurant having tripped on the wobbly pavement outside! So kind and attentive, made sure I was given ice from the bar. As on every visit I find the staff at Hawksmoor really go above and beyond.
Such a shame & a disappointment having eaten there before and loved it. Three stone cold burgers, steak meal missing included fries & salad then charged for sides, slow & inadequate service (though friendly & tried best but clearly not trained as waiter), dishes given to wrong guests so cut into and part eaten before being corrected. Burgers replaced & taken off bill without needing to ask (good) but when on a birthday evening out & birthday dad has finished his (sideless) steak before others get theirs (not good). With burgers removed still £120. An expensive meal when little enjoyed overall. Hopefully unlucky as opposed to a downturn in standards.
