I was there for a business dinner. Food was delicious and came out fairly quickly. Service was prompt and polite. I would go again if I had a choice.

We went on Sunday evening at 7.30pm, they had run out of half of the menu, no Sunday lunch left, even though it wasn't particularly busy and it wasn't a 9pm table! They had also run out of a lot of other dishes on the menu and the steak we had wasn't great either. All in all a rubbish experience, when I was really looking forward to it.

Nice place, fantastic food and extraordinary cocktails.

One minor thing need to address will be the lobster from surf and turf; it taste good but it is not as fresh (lobster meat is slightly a bit mushy)

This is a fantastic place for Sunday Lunch...the food and service is outstanding. The problem is, it’s so good it ruins ever having a roast anywhere else!

Fantastic food as always. Had the prime rib for Sunday lunch. Staff were brilliant, they even made complimentary cocktails with a chocolate message congratulating our friends who had just got married. A lovely touch

The steaks were to die for. As good as you would get in USA. We had booked but were told table not ready. 8.15 on a Saturday night. We had to wait half an hour. So we had to go and pay for a drink in the bar which we wouldn’t have otherwise bothered with. This added £40 to the total bill. We were seated right by the kitchen servery and toilet exit/entrance area so it was very busy. Out waitress was absolutely first class. Chips and jacket potatoes Luke warm. Told them it was my birthday which it was and they brought me free chocolates with the bill. A very mixed visit.

Superb in every way and certainly the best steak restaurant I’ve been to anywhere - whichever one you choose to go to they do a great job, from the front desk, in the bar and in the restaurant itself

The steak, which is what most people will go here for was excellent however, we felt the side dishes seriously let the whole experience down. They were severely overpriced and small in terms of portion size. £5.50 for a small bowl of wilted spinach is very excessive.
Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable and we are glad we visited but do not think we will return unless the pricing changes.

Early Saturday evening booking. The place was very busy. The food was excellent, but the service felt impersonal, as we were served by at least six different servers during the meal.

I've dined there once before and, although we were seated in a different part of the main room, for me, the tables are just a bit too close together and I'm too close to other diners. I don't want to hear their conversations and I don't want them to hear mine, either.

The tables are small, and they soon fill up if you order a few items. It's as if you have to do a balancing act during your meal. Condiments, sauces, plates and glasses nearly all touching one another. The table next to us received a table extension which nearly touched our table, so their meal was spread out our way.

The route to the front door can be a challenge, as you're dodging servers and diners through two smaller rooms. It's probably a greater challenge for customers with access requirements.

Hawksmoor does seem to want to pack us all in!

Despite the above, we still left a 15% cash tip.

The Shakey Pete's Ginger Brew was spectacular - the best ginger beer we have ever tasted. Really impressive and warm welcome by the staff - quite a contrast to the service that one would ordinarily get in London restaurants. Each member of the staff has a can-do attitude, receptive to customer requests which may not be strictly on the menu. The food is excellent and the salad (heritage tomato) was so fresh and tasty. Classy interiors.

Really lovely meal. Staff seemed very knowledgeable and were very attentive. Food was lovely, would be nice to know cost of the piece of steak you were actually ordered and having as prices vary individually. Maybe show prior to cooking ?

The staff were casually dressed, some wearing tee shirts and looked a little scruffy. The food I thought was nothing special for the price paid. The coffee was excellent except was lukewarm. Had ordered 2 beef burgers with 2 portions of chips 2 lovely desserts 2 bottles of sparkling water and 2 lukewarm cappuccino's cost £71 + sorry for me I was not impressed. I think if you enjoy steak this place is for you.

Great Steaks on the lunch menu, good wine list though slightly high mark up

Attentive service with a smile, which counts for a lot

Overall good value for a city centre restaurant

Faultless. Aweome team helped us choose the best food and wine pairings to make this a memorable evening. It means so much more when the team know their products so well, and the food and service is this good.

A lovely venue and the staff were first class. The food was great, as always but I feel the desserts are a little lacking. For me you should have a choice of traditional English dessert like sponge and custard or something similar. It's not a deal breaker as I didn't visit especially for this but I feel it is Co strucrive criticism.

Absolutely amazing! I cannot wait to return. Me and my partner went to the Hawksmore because we have been dying to try lobster for the first time, and wow! It was absolutely delicious, the stakes are also out of this world and are by far the best stake I have ever had. Wonderful staff who couldn’t do enough for us and helped us with our menu questions without us feeling embarrassed or belittled. Cannot recommend enough!

Took our 18 year old grandson on his birthday. We received a complimentary starter and candle and birthday wishes on his desert. The staff were amazing and the food incredible. Our grandson was completely bowled over, as we were, on the whole experience which was wonderful. A bit pricey, but in this day and age you get what you pay for. We paid, and we had a brilliant time. Thank you so very much.
