Very nice meal, location is very convenient (we had walked over from BFI on Southbank, so pretty accessible). Staff were (universally) helpful and kind. Food was 8.5/10, top notch.

The absolute best Sunday roast! Everything is fantastic - the food, the service, the drinks, the space. I go every time I’m in London. Highly recommended!

We, booked a meal for a party of 3 and believed we had booked the special offer of 3 courses for £35. Once we were seated we were told that this wasn’t the case, and this order was only available at certain times. Yet I had booked this following the link on an email sent to me advertising the offer. The fact that we were there for a birthday which was ignored soured the evening somewhat.

I loved my supper although the noise levels were a little high for a conversation that you didn't have to shout.
No room for a pudding ! Gutted.
Will go back.

Food took ages to come. It was OK but not worth the money.

So loud you couldn't have a conversation without shouting at each other.

Very disappointed... been to Hawksmoor Air Street before and loved that.

Won't be returning here. Birthday treat for the family ruined.

I was expecting an excellent experience based on the reviews I read, but was disappointed when I left. My server was friendly and polite, but quite inattentive. It was very hard to get his attention and he paid considerably more attention to the nearby tables. I asked for my sirloin steak to be prepared medium rare and it was not as red as I would have liked. That was probably my fault for not requesting the steak to be made rare. The cut of meat was of excellent quality, but the grilling wasn’t as good. The vegetables and wine were excellent. I was expecting something different with the “greens”, however. I have had many superb dining experiences in London and my night at Hawksmoor Seven Dials was a real letdown.

Such a shame the lobster roll isn’t on the menu anymore as went specifically for this. Still, the waiter was helpful in giving suggestions and though food was nice just wasn’t the lobster roll

We had a wonderful night out here with my mother. The staff is exceptionally friendly and in particular the waitress who served our table that night (petite brunette) was so amazing and nice to us. Food, as always, was exceptional. We will come again and again.

Overall, our experience was good - the food, the atmosphere and the service were good. Two things disappointed us though. When the waitress found out we’re going for the same rib-eye steak, she suggested getting one piece of prime instead - same weight, but cheaper she said. Ended up with one steak for 95 pounds instead of two for 72 together! Also, the menu states 12,5% service charge can be added to the bill if you want to add it, but for us it has been added by default, we didn’t ask for it. Take these things into consideration when going there

Food was exceptional if a little high in cost and consequently value. Service was slow and non attentive in a dining room that was only approx 2/3 full. The high end quality experience was overall not great esp with a bill of £80 pp on only two courses and one glass of wine each.

Disappointed the experience was far less enjoyable than on previous visits.

We enjoyed the pre theatre set menu and found it exceptionally good value.
The resturant setting was lovely however our table a little drafty by the fire exit.
Staff were exceptional, the resturant can get a little loud at times but it has that atmosphere and style.

Our second or third visit to Seven Dials Hawksmoor. Excellent food and service as always. Not the cheapest steak in town, but the quality of the food can’t be had cheaply.

Thoroughly recommended.

Excellent food and attentive and knowledgeable service. Only downside was they had run out of bread and bone marrow gravy but it was late on Sunday evening. Would definitely 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.

Food was very good and the atmosphere was great - buzzing! We got a very good wine recommended by the waitress and a chateaubriand steak to share. We asked for medium rare cooked. But the food took ages to arrive at our table and when it did, the meat was not cooked ‘medium rare’ through out, with some bits cooked ‘well done’. That was a bit disappointing however service was great - they gave us some of the sauces for free because of the delay. Not major, but definitely appreciated.
