We were in London for the Easter break and had lunch there. From the moment we walked in everyone was courteous and helpful. The food was delicious and the drinks were well thought out. We will definitely visit again when in London.

We have eaten at Hawksmoor Seven Dials before and have always been delighted by the food and the service - tonight was no exception - loads of advice and recommendations for dairy and gluten free alternatives. Personally I had the best steak ever for dinner and the ‘dripping’ fries just have to be experienced! Top class - thank you for another memorable evening - can’t wait until the next time

Our meal was interrupted by an incident in the building, so we had to go outside. When we got back, of course our food was cold, but the staff soon gave us fresh lunches, were kind and reassuring. Never been before, but will go again.

The food was so good, especially their Sunday roast! Their Yorkshire pudding tastes different than any other places. However, I should say that their service is a little bit bad. I came first than others, however others get place first than me ( This is just my conclusion, but maybe it's because I'm not British). I feel like the guy who was in front table was like discriminate us.

Outstanding food, if you want a proper porterhouse then this is the place. Mash and gravy is very good, same for Bernaise sauce.

Had a wonderful meal at Hawksmoor Seven Dials on Tuesday 9th of April. Myself and my girlfriend both chose the Filet Steak and Beef Dripping Fries as well as the Maple Roasted Parsnips and Bacon - absolutely delicious! I venture to say that this was the best steak i have ever had in the UK. We followed this with Sticky Toffee Pudding and the Peanut Butter Shortbread respectively - again wonderful. The service was excellent - very attentive but not overbearing. It was quite quiet when we arrived (6.30pm) but very busy when we left (8.10pm). Atmosphere was lively with moderate noise. A very enjoyable evening with special food & service.

We absolutely loved the steaks there and my friends loved the potted beef and bacon Yorkshires!!

We would definitely recommend this restaurant and would definitely eat there again.

One of the staff was ever so friendly and kept our table waited on which we all felt like royalty!

Very good service. We went for a Sunday roast and the only slot available was at 5pm. We were told they ran out of roast so we ordered something else. Was a bit disappointing.

I normally have great dinners at the Hawksmoor, not matter what location it is. But the roast dinner at the Seven Dials one was poor this time around. I'm sure its just an unlucky experience though, their standards are normally impeccable.

We had a lovely Sunday Roast at Hawksmoor Seven Dials. Service was fantastic and the service staff took patience in answering questions and were very friendly. Portions are generous and neither me nor my friend could finish the entire serving, which was a shame as what was served deserved every bits to be enjoyed!

We heard much about the steaks at Hawksmoor as well and will be very happy to revisit during our next trip to London. Yes, certainly will remember to allow more space for the yummy food!

Restaurant ambience is quite, cosy, and initmate.

Sunday lunch was disappointing. The beef rump was great but the roast potatoes had been fried and the Yorkshire pudding was huge but hard and tasteless. Would not recommend.

We have visited twice before and enjoyed the food and experience so when it was my husbands birthday i thought it would be a nice treat but unfortunately the steak was very disappointing as it was far to salty and dry it was not as tender as it should of been, both my husband and I ordered the surf and turf the lobster was fine. when I explained we were a bit disappointed the manager did take the cost of the steaks of the bill which was nice but it couldn't make up for the disappointment felt. I will not be telling people what a great place hawksmoor is to eat anymore because the prices you pay I definitely expect much better.

We had a starter of pulled beef and bacon with Yorkshire puddings. Very different but really tasty. Our prime rib was done exactly as we ordered, medium rare, and the bone marrow sauce we chose was really good. Dessert was too sweet to our liking and our server, who recommended the toffee pudding, was apologetic and took the item off the bill which was a very nice gesture on her part. All in we had a lovely meal, the beef was just so tender and flavourful. Only negative point was that it was so noisy, guess that meant that everyone was having a blast!

Me and my partner was looking for a nice steak restaurant for my birthday. We Originally was booked to go to stk London ( which we have been before ) but after a few personal recommendations we decided to book hawksmoor seven dials. From the moment you walk through the door the staff make you feel very welcomed. The decor and ambience is very classy and relaxed! Our waiter borris showed us through the menu and how it works and also gave us some recommendations. We decided to get the chateaubriand steak medium rare (650g) to share which worked out to be about £87 and got beef dripping fries, mac and cheese on the sides. Easily the best steak I have ever tasted and the sides was equally as good. Would defiantly pick hawksmoor over stk London again and a special shout out to borris who made our experience one to remember!

Overall great. Steaks were really good. All of the sIdes we ordered were amazing. Highly recommend trying Mac and cheese. Only con was that restaurant did get loud though and it was hard to hear conversation at our own table. Historic location with fun facts and tidbits provided on back of menus. Drinks were good with whimsical names.
