The evening was a joy. Staff were attentive and supportive. The only areas to disappoint were the lack of choice for a veggie ( I know it is a steak house but choice is always nice) and the level of cooking of the steak, it would be advisable to understate the level of cooking (say rare if medium/rare wanted).
Staff, other food etc excellent.

Beautiful main course and dessert for my husband and I (shared a chateaubriand with sides and an apple pie with custard) Service was perfect, our waiter couldn't have been nicer and certainly knew his stuff. Food... what can I say about the food! 10/10. If we didn't live so far away (Scotland) it would be a regular haunt. Thanks again for a beautiful night x

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.

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!

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!!

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.

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.

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.
