Very impressed with the service, but unfortunately the Roast Beef was tough and the Yorkshire Puddings over-cooked

Have heard good reports about this restaurant but unfortunately we were disappointed on the day.

Food was fantastic - the steak was top-notch, and the lobster with garlic butter was phenomenally good. The blackberry and lemon pavlova dessert was a really nice mix of a light but substantial and delicious finish to the meal. Slightly expensive overall, but definitely worth it for special occasion!

We had a really really wonderful time celebrating at Hawksmoor. The service was great, the complimentary bubbles were lovely upon arrival and the food was utterly delicious. Only change would have been to not be sat by the kitchen and at a more central table, but not a big deal.

Fantastic experience. We went on Monday as they have a #5 per bottle corkage when you bring your own. The service was excellent and they even went to the trouble of decanting our wines and putting labels on so we didn't get them mixed up. Food was excellent and I'd definitely do it again. Highly recommended.

Took my husband for a birthday lunch. Loved everything. Steaks perfect, waiting staff attentive, reception staff her professional. Lovely ambience not to noisy. Perhaps not somewhere you would take the family as it could be a bit pricey and it is quite formal but fabulous for something a bit more special. Will definatley go back.

We went to Hawksmoor Seven Dials celebrate my brother's 50th birthday as we had dined there two times previously with our children and had a great meal there both times. The food was exceptional, from starter to dessert. A lovely selection to choose from. Portion sizes are generous and beautifully cooked and presented. Had a slight issue with one of the meals on this occasion which was never questioned and immediately rectified by very helpful staff. We had a wonderful evening and were grateful for the extra touches provided to help celebrate the 50th. Thank you Hawksmoor Seven Dials, we'll be back again soon!

Hi
We had a great time at Hawksmore Seven Dials, we loved the informal atmosphere. My wife and I both had the pork belly to start, which was delicious. I particularly liked its spiciness and the coleslaw went well with it. I had the cast-iron steak for my main dish and it was beautifully cooked, the bone marrow gravy was to die for. We travelled from Portsmouth, spent the morning at the Poppy Day celebrations in Whitehall then had the perfect lunch at Hawksmore.

Love this place!

Normally give this place 5 stars, been to Hawksmoor’s multiple restaurants numerous times (20+), however on this occasion the beef in our Sunday roast’s wasn’t as requested. Asked for it to be medium rare, as pink as possible, and it could not have been delivered more well-done.

Was a shame, but as I have given this place multiple 5 star reviews thought it only fair I give a 4 stars this time.

Will still be going back for more

We were visiting from the States, and Hawksmoor was highly recommended. The service was outstanding. From the moment we stepped into the restaurant until we walked out the door. Friendly, helpful and fun. The whole place is fun. Really cool setup, lot of ambiance and obvious the customers are having fun and enjoying a great meal. Drinks were good. Wine prices very fair. Food prices also attractive. Steakhouses are not cheap, but this was on the lower range for price but the highest end for food and fun. Started out with the scallops appetizer, which was a bit undercooked to my liking but my fault for not telling them to cook longer for me. The salad with artichokes and celery root and such was terrific. We ordered a big porterhouse for two. Steak was outstanding but it was not cooked to medium as we ordered. More like medium well. However, all in all, absolutely awesome. Highly recommend

Usually love the Hawksmoor, but this time the food was way too salty for me in such a way that it spoilt the meal and because of the cost I expected it to be as fantastic as usual, hopefully better next time.

I chose this restaurant for my Husbands Birthday are were not disappointed. The Scallops were to die for and the Lobster was excellent. My Husband loved his Steak and says it’s the best Steak he’s had in a very long time. It’s a bit pricey, but so worth it! Will definitely be visiting again soon!

The staff couldn't have been better at this Hawkesmoor.
We attended for my fiance's 30th birthday. When booking I mentioned this in the notes, so they knew the occasion was special. We ordered dessert, and when it arrived, our waitress also brought a plate of their famous chocolate rolos, with 'happy birthday' beautifully written in chocolate. There was a candle in one of the rolos and 2 waiters sang to my fiance. I was so pleased and amazed that they did this for us!
Food is also incredible...

The food at the Hawksmoor Seven Dials is always excellent. There's simply nothing better than a rare fillet steak with bone marrow gravy with a side of grilled bone marrow. And definitely do try the full-fat Old Fashioned, with butter bourbon — simply amazing.
