Luscious mounds of mouthwatering food. We ordered the traditional Sunday roast. Place was incredibly busy. We booked several weeks in advance. Highly recommend

After reading 'rave' reviews of the Sunday roast at Hawksmoor I booked.

Following a warm welcome at 'reception' the table service was mildly attentive but indifferent. A repeat pre dinner drink order was never delivered, eventually apologised for and deducted from the bill.

The slow roast rump 'roast dinner with all the trimmings' was beautifully cooked and very tasty meat. It was however carved with (and not 'across') the grain of the meat and was very 'chewy' not to say 'tough'. I assumed a Steakhouse would know how to carve their cuts of beef, but not so.

Also 'all the trimmings' were a little lacking. Mountains of Yorkshire Pudding disguised a paucity of vegetables including some soggy nondescript 'greens' underneath the pile.

I have to say that it was a generally disappointing meal.

We went for our anniversary. Staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Food was delicious, although SO’s blue steak wasn’t blue the first time around. They replaced it with no fuss and other than that, it was a lovely evening.

The food was not given the way I had asked, the waiter who served us I felt was very rude when i enquired about discretionary service charge, I did not feel the service warranted paying the service fee, instead of removing the charge, he questioned why I did not want to pay it rather loudly and was abrasive. This waiter was not the one that had served us so had no idea of what mix up there had been with our food. It was not his position to debate what i did not want to pay the charge. Very disappointed in my experience.

All the staff were very nice and knowledgable. I spilt my drink and it was replaced free of charge, which shows the level of customer service here.

The food was very good- nothing I could fault with it.

The only negative is the price, but if you’re looking to go for an expensive meal, this should be top of your list.

Had a great time, but also had great company. When buying expensive steaks I don’t expect to have to pay extra for a sauce but otherwise food was delicious.

Without a doubt, Hawksmoor is THE restaurant to enjoy a good steak. I would really like to recommend the Porterhouse, that is so delicious. The service and ambiance is terrific. Good to have a date there, eat with friends or just because you want to.

Dined at Hawksmoor Seven Dials with friends prior to going to the theatre. Had read very good reviews but sadly did not live up to expectations. Three of us went for the express set menu and my husband chose from the a la carte. Whilst the potted beef with Yorkshires were indeed very tasty, the portion was enormous - half would have been more than adequate. My husband chose the scallops which were good but not worth the £16.50 price tag. The three of us on the set menu chose steaks (rare) which came out charred and dry - very disappointing - plus the chips were not good either, resembling under cooked oven chips. My husband chose the sea bream which he said was the best he had had. So, I guess if I did go there again I would stay away from the set menu but be aware that the bill will be huge.

Service was excellent but starter was burnt but they didnt charge and apolgised straight away. Monkfish was lovely porterhouse steak ok had better but some fat which you may expect. Peppercorn sauce weak . Cheese board not good but lemon tart lovely. Champagne and wine good . Probably wouldn't go again...

One of the best meals I’ve ever had, top 5 for sure, and we do a great deal of fine dining. The food was perfect, every course one upped the last. I had the Bone Marrow, Rib Eye steak with maple bacon, creamed spinach and Mac n cheese sides, the sticky toffee pudding, and honey combed sundae, with two bottles of fantastic Cabernet called Notary Public. All incredibly delicious. Make this on your journey and enjoy!!

Great service and amazing food in a very nice somewhat historical surrounding with good access to the rest of Covent Garden, the only down side is as usual in London it can get a little noisy. But if you fancy a splurge and like your beef you will enjoy the menu, that much I guarantee.

We had to return my partners steak as it was over cooked. Starters were nice but not amazing!
They kindly took the steak off the bill without asking. Brilliant service and think maybe we were a bit unlucky with food so will try again.

The kitchen must have been really busy because the food was not as excellent as it usually is. I also think I was the unlucky one at the table as I got the end cuts of the roast beef which were too over done for me and a smaller portion than the rest of the table. I had the sticky toffee pudding for dessert (which having had it before I knew would be lovely) but it was overcooked and chewy and also on the cold side (felt like it had been waiting out for too long). Our waiter was lovely though and handled the fact that they were clearly really busy and struggling to serve all of the tables really well. He was friendly and funny.

perchè si mangia bene, prechè il personale è molto gentile, perchè l'atmosfera è molto bella, perchè il locale è molto bello, perchè a volte parlano la mia lingua.
E ringrazio la ragazza Portoghese che ha parlato con me in italiano (io non so una parola di inglese, ma amo molto il vostro paese ...... )
Inoltre siamo rimasti molto sorpresi positivamente per il dono del dolce del compleanno e anniversario !
Grazie grazie grazie infinite.
Era la seconda volta che pranzavo da voi e sicuramente ce ne saranno altre.
Buna giornata a tutti.

4 of us went for a pre-theater express dinner & it was great.
The staff were all really professional but with a relaxed atmosphere.
The food was really good, & great portion size for a set meal.
I will definitely be back!

Excellent food - they were very diligent about our food allergies too. The food arrived hot, which doesn’t always happen. Our waitress was lovely. All in all, very good.

It is a real treat to come here. I mean it’s not the Ritz but it’s casual and relaxed. Which was perfect for dinner with a friends. Had to book in advance. Service was really good. Didn’t feel rushed like in some restaurants. Great ambience. The bar is nice to have a drink before dinner. Food is lovely. Would definitely recommend.

Great steak, share one if you don’t want a huge portion as it’s pretty expensive. Would be great if they could offer a few more affordable wine options on their extensive wine list.

horrible burger, pricey, very powerful impulse from the staff to speed everything up. So felt, on the restaurant spectrum, more fast food than fine dining.
