Lovely Sunday roast. Beef was delicious, would definitely go back for another! We were sat under the aircon so it was a tad bit chilly, but other than that, really nice time!

Fantastic meal . Sunday lunch was delicious. Normally restaurants can’t seem to cook roast potatoes, but here they were tip top.
Thanks Spitalfields. We will be back .

Our waiter was outstanding. So helpful and informative. Additionally, he made a really special effort when he found out we were due to get married the day before. He really made our day! Additionally, the roast was exceptional. It is maybe a little more pricey than some places, but it really was very good :-) Thank you!

We haven’t been to Hawksmoor for quite a while so it was nice to see the food and service are still amazing especially in the current circumstances.

A lovely welcoming place to spend a dinner-time, especially if you wish to feel spoiled or are a fervent lover of meat! Possibly a little overpriced on certain items, but they do deliver great service and they sure do know their steak!

The table service was slow and slow to get out the food! The steak was very bland with no seasoning and the peppercorn sauce didn’t make it much better. The staff were very nice there but felt very rushed and hard to get their attention. Was offered free deserts as we didn’t like the main, which was nice but didn’t end up having them due to time constraints and food taking so long to come out

Absolutely spectacular evening. Food and service were incredible - our server was so friendly and recommended cocktails that were delicious and even brought out our Old Fashioneds with ‘Happy Anniversary’ as we were celebrating. Felt very safe at the restaurant - lots of precautions.

Superb food (if a little pricey!), but you get what you pay for. The only thing I would say is can the side options also include more healthy options rather than greens dripping in butter, delicious as they are! But as I say, the steak was delicious.
I'm slightly deaf, so going to restaurants now is amazing, maybe when things return they can put carpet or something on the celing to deaden the sound, but as soon as there is one loud person in a group an entire restaurants volume goes up which become a who can talk louder match. Also can we maintain the ban on singing happy birthday! Two silver linings in the circumstances.

We ordered the ribeye from the board as the waiters recondition. The meat was so tough we left half of it. Was a really disappointing experience

Very helpful and informative staff. We asked What steaks they recommended. They asked what type of meat we liked at home. What size steak and even what was the difference between the triple cooked chips and the beef dripping fries. Very attentive and friendly.

As usual, Hawksmoor was lovely. Staff are friendly - from the door to waiter. The vibe is warm, and it felt familiar. Social distancing was in place and did not feel awkward and off. I felt very comfortable. Food is divine. I highly recommend the scallops for the starter!

We went to Hawksmoor to celebrate my son's and my brother in law's birthday. We chose Hawksmoor because my son loves steak. It was our first visit.

From the moment we arrived we felt covid safe (sanitizer on the reception desk, screens and distances between the tables).

The restaurant is well decorated and had a good ambience. I wasn't sure how the ambience would be in a City restaurant on a Sunday night.

Our 2 waitresses were extremely friendly, helpful, attentive. One gave us ideas on sharing starters and suggested ordering one extra scallop so we could share, not something we would have thought of.

The scallops and lobster starters were very tasty. Our steaks were delicious, well cooked and melt in the mouth, the sides were also tasty.

We were all very touched that the desserts for the birthday boys had candles and writing on the boards.

All in all a great experience. We couldn't have asked for more. We will be back.

Took mum and dad for a quiet lunch as part of their anniversary. The food was lovely, we had the porterhouse and whole sea bream. It was excellent. The bone marrow side was delicious but very rich, and I definitely recommend the simple green salad and the creamed spinach. Anchovy bearnaise (sp?) is not to be missed. All in all it was a wonderful lunch & they want to go again.

We felt very comfortable. Tables well spaced, servers relaxed but aware.

Food was amazing up to its usual standard although menu more limited than usual.

We had a short wait for our main but we were kept informed of progress and offered free drinks to compensate.

Welcome back to some sense of normalitu.
