Ate here seven years ago, it was good then and still is now. Quality, service ambiance good as ever. The food this time around was fantastic. The staff are superb, you should be very proud of them.

I brought 3 colleagues from around the globe for a business meeting over steaks and it did not disappoint. All of my colleagues were blown away (as was I) at the quality of the food as well as the impeccable service. Looking forward to coming back again soon.

I went with my friend. He loved his steak! He had a ribeye and enjoyed it thoroughly, cooked to perfection. But I had a less pleasant experience. Being vegetarian I had emailed ahead of time to confirm that the side dishes I wanted were vegetarian. I received a response saying that the Mac and cheese was vegetarian. But when I got there and ordered, I was told that actually the Mac and cheese is made with a cheese that has animal rennet, so not vegetarian.
I think Hawksmoor is great if you eat meat, but as a vegetarian, I didn't have a great experience. Would love it if they introduced some more interesting veg dishes. Also it would be great if they labelled food on the menu with a 'V' sign to indicate vegetarian because some of the cheeses used aren't and I'm sure a lot of people then end up eating animal products without knowing.
Service was great however.

We went for the roast, which is my favourite in London. Sadly this time the service was very slow (sat at table for over 10 mins before getting water and basically 20 before being able to order) and the Yorkshire puddings were extremely burnt and inedible. Still delicious roast though and quite good value so would recommend trying.

Sunday roast lunch for 3 people.
Quick and excellent service from the start until the end, lot of attention to the table and the details, food was on the table less than 15mn after the order was placed.
Food was tasty and a good portion, perfectly cooked meat and vegetables, massive yorkshire pudding.
Desserts were also delicious.
Bill was around £130 for 2 beers, 3 roasts, desserts and coffees, service included, which is fine by me for the experience provided.

Definitely recommend the place, will be back.

Amazing! I bought a close friend here for their birthday, following a trip to the theatre, and it was without a doubt the best restaurant I have ever visited. Very professional and quick service, despite the restaurant being completely full, and the food was amazing. Being quite a classy restaurant I expected tiny portions, however I have never been more wrong, following a stater and the sirloin steak, neither of us could manage any more food! The food itself was delightful and without the best steak dinner I have ever had. Of course it’s no secret that the restaurant is on the pricer side, but it is expensive for good reason and the bill was exactly as I expected it to be. Also, this is a birthday treat, and I couldn’t have had such a special meal without spending a little more than usual. My friend had the time of their life and loved every second and is already trying to plan next year’s birthday there! Thank you hawksmoor for such a special day :)

Our steaks were too heavily seasoned for our tastes. When we mentioned this we were given a discount on our final bill which was appreciated.

Otherwise we enjoyed our meal and the time spent there - we were glad to have eaten early as the noise level increased considerably after about 6.30!

First time here and we'll be going back. Stuffed our faces with something from every course, finished with some excellent coffee too. It's pricey but not extortionate and you are getting what you pay for. Everything was top notch; the in-house IPA, service and the food. It's not a place for those into delicate food, really. Stuff like Bone Marrow with onions packs a real wallop, and I shudder to think of the calories I consumed over the 3 courses. The smoked salmon was fabulous too...

So, yes, we'll be going back. This place has a reputation and you can see why.

Really excellent evening at Hawksmoor. It was my partner's birthday on saturday so we decided to visit a day early (a Friday night) for better timing and because we've been twice before on saturday evenings but both times the Chateaubriand has been sold out! The waiter was really very lovely, and we (finally!) had an amazing meal of Chateaubriand (a worthwhile expense). It was really excellent. The waiter had also quietly said to me that they would provide a celebratory dessert for my partner so we ordered one to share and it had been decorated with a candle and 'happy birthday' in chocolate sauce around the plate edge. It was a really wonderful evening. Thank you.

Top class steak, my favourite in London. Equally appealing for meeting friends or having a business meal. Good value for the standard of food and wine. Service was a little lower than usual standard but I'll put this down to being a bank holiday, service usually exceptional. Will return many times!

Server Tom was outstanding and patient. Being tourists and wanting the full experience, Tom was very patient in explaining our options. We ordered one steak but since Tom knew we were sharing it he had it plated in the sharing mode which is very appealing and appetizing. Filet mignon very tender, flavorful and well seasoned. Great sides with dinner and cocktails. The bar area is quieter and darker to dine in which we chose over the dining hall.
