Absolutely fantastic service; felt welcome from the start and able to enjoy an aperitif at the bar before sitting down for dinner. Excellent food and wine thereafter.

Great waiter ....food arrived exactly as ordered . Steaks perfectly cooked , the scallops luscious as always , sides of spinach , mash, fries and mushrooms all well cooked and presented . Waiter offered good wine knowledge .

2 desserts ordered : sticky toffee pudding and rhubarb tart which we all shared . Lovely portion size and very delicious .
Overall an excellent experience

My only deduction of star is that they offered the wine taste to the male guest which I think is so outdated

I definitely recommend this restaurant for a pre-theater dinner. Nice cocktails, delicious steaks. On the pricey side. There is no side dish to the steaks included.

The Sunday roast is amazing. The portions are generous and everything is delicious. Staff are friendly but busy, though they did their best to come back to you as soon as possible. It took quite a long time between ordering and receiving our meal, but it was packed in the restaurant, and the food was well worth the wait. It’s a noisy and loud environment, so if your sound sensitive might not be the best place for you.

Great food, pricey but to be expected. Lovely staff, only issue was they said the starters we ordered weren’t prepared so would take an hour (so we chose something else). Out of the wine we ordered too, but found another one which was great. Great pre theatre meal

We had a lovely meal here there was just two of us and we went for the pre theatre express menu! We both went for the steak followed by the steamy toffee pudding and it was deliousios! Our waitress was lovely and the wines were very well priced. We were in and out quickly which is what we had asked as we had to see a friend before attending the theatre! I will deffiently be recommending it to all my friends and already look forward to our next visit!

Overpriced. Unfortunately 9our beloved Hawksmoor has gone the way of chains and gone for growth over quality. Over salted steak, poor cut, mediocre sides and service that knew as much about steak as a McDonald’s attendant. I will not be returning.

You can always count on good service at Hawksmoor. On this particular occasion my fillet steak wasn't the best - however my co-diner seem to get a very good one.

Hawksmoor was surprisingly relaxed, the staff were casually dressed and there were no airs or graces. I like that. The menu is extensive for a carnivore! We arrived at 5.30pm so took up the three course set meal offer (available before 6.30pm). The food was lovely and the service very good. The set meal at £29.95 (plus an extra £6 for tail fillet) was good value. My only concern is that if ordering from the main menu the steaks are overpriced and the selected cuts of meat very expensive. The drinks are a little pricey too, with £5 for half of pale ale and the cheapest house wine £8 a glass. I would definitely go back, but only to have the set menu again.

Always delicious - from the cocktails to the steaks and sides to the sticky toffee pudding. Had family from Texas visiting and they claimed it was the best meal they'd had in London and a top steak in their books. Pleased I could bring them somewhere I love so much and know it would meet (or exceed) expectations.

We’ve been before so decided to go again as the first time was great. Unfortunately wasn’t as great as the first time. I ordered a cake for my sons birthday. It served its purpose (singing happy birthday) but was poor in taste and the strawberry’s on top were still frozen. But this was taken off the bill. My daughter and I had fillet. Just had far to much salt on. I’d still return though.

Food was great! Service was amazing ! Staff go the extra mile with food recommendations.

Im not a sticky toffee pudding kind of girl but they told me it was the most popular dessert and I am now converted!

Although slightly expensive - worth every penny!
