Great steak as always however other people in our group were disappointed by the fish, requested it filleted as offered by the waitress but it literally came with the head removed and still full of bones. Not filleted!

Service was lacking unfortunately, we were made to feel rushed initially when the waitress asked to take our order a minute after we sat down. Then were left waiting for an hour for food. It was a nice gesture that she brought a glass of champagne at the end of the meal for my birthday however maybe a little thoughtless as I don't drink and half the party also were only having soft drinks.

Overall good food, however quite amateur service which let it down.

Loved the food, the staff the feel of the place but..... I would say the temperature within the restaurant space was in excess of twenty five degrees... if you’re happy eating wonderful food in sun tropical temperatures then this is the place for you - otherwise I’d opt for a £100 menu per head in another location. Shame really, possibly a one off and issues with the air conditioning.

We went there for my husband’s birthday this week. The food overall tasted really good and fresh. However my husband’s ribeye steak could have been a tad less cooked and the onion and marrow addition to my cast iron steak a bit less oily (possibly due to the marrow fat). Saying that we enjoyed our potted mackerel, the accompanying sliced cucumbers added freshness to the dish, but the highlight was the marrow sauce, which we used with the triple cooked chips, yum! The staff was attentive. We will definitely come back to sample other dishes :)

The first attempt at serving our food was very disappointing as all components of our meal, steak, mushrooms and macaroni cheese were all cold, only the chips and my bone marrow gravy were acceptably warm. However when we told our waiter there was no problem in changing all our meal and replacing with freshly cooked fayre, as it should have been first time around. The second offering was up to their normal very high standard, when they get it right the steaks at Hawksmoor are still up there with the best.

My second time i have visited this restaurant and again i have had such a great experience! The food was absolutely delicious and the waitress (I didn't take down her name) was so helpful with letting my friend know about the Gluten Free options she can go for.

I will be going back again ...soon!

The customer service was outstanding and nothing felt too much trouble. I had accidentally booked the wrong time and only noticed a day before but the receptionist was great and managed to sort it for us. On the day we arrived early so decided to drink at the bar until our table was ready, the barman made our trip. He was so knowledgable and told us all about the rum they had. It was seamless of the restaurant staff knowing where we were to then direct us to our table so we didn’t have to chase. The food was great- the starter of Yorkshire puds and beef was the best we’ve had, the only slight let down was my partners steak as it was quite tough and chewy but it’s a gamble with steak. All in all a fab evening and will definitely be recommending to others

Celebrated my friend's birthday there. Staff greeted us with a happy birthday and brought us a complimentary chocolate with a candle, which was very kind. Steak was very tasty and peanut butter shortbread desert was very delicious, based on the waiter's recommendation. Very value for money with the set menu. Restaurant was a tad noisy. Would recommend for special occasions.

Friendly staff and nice setting. However, the waiter didn't offer the set menu without asking...I then found the meat to be just ok...my tail steak which was an extra £5 supplement looked exactly the same as the rump steak. The steak was nice but far from the best steak I have had. Also loses a star due to adding the service charge automatically - a practice, I am against. My orange juice was also watered down and expensive for what it was. The waiter also hovered around the table until we paid although we were working on splitting the bill which I found rude - they didn't however ask for the table back although we spent 2h15m there which was nice. Overall, I won't be going back.

Cocktails were really good and the wine excellent. Staff were attentive and friendly and the atmosphere was vibrant. Great night out, no fuss and great food. Highly recommend.
