So great to have Hawksmoor operating again. Despite the time lapsed since lockdown began, etc the fact that they have re-opened with no deterioration of quality is testimony
to the ethos of the restaurant. As ever, the food was great, the service was top notch, and we were able to enjoy the whole experience again.

Delicious steaks, which are cooked to perfection. The sides were faultless and we particularly enjoyed the triple cooked chips.

Great food, and an amazing treat! Service was great but waiters could have shown us the Eat Out to Help Out special menu at the day which we've missed out, it was a marvellous deal. But what we had was incredible!

I went for a catch up with my cousins, first experience I was overall pleased with the level of service from every aspect. Excellent service from all members of staff which added to the ambience of the evening. Despite a hiccup within the order this was delta with professionally and discreetly and had no overall impact on the evening. Staff were accommodating, attentive and the food was delicious and worth every penny. Would definitely visit again!

This is one of our favourite restaurants. Been here a number of times and can’t fault the place. Staff at reception as you walk in are really happy to greet you and our server was very accommodating. Would highly recommend this restaurant food is always excellent and of very good quality. Cocktails are great too.

Usually I go to the Hawksmoor restaurants in West London (closer to home), but the quality of food was great at Spitalfields. I always forget how great the potted beef and bacon is, it hits the spot ever time! We went at lunchtime on a Sunday but didn't have the roast.
However, I will say that the noise level was insanely loud on this trip, so much so that my partner and I were shouting so that we could hear each other at points and I felt the hosts at the front of restaurant were a bit flippant and rude (I'm pretty sure one sized me up, looking me up and down as I left! Not exactly a way to get repeat customers). Though, our actual servers at the table were great and polite. So where I have said I wouldn't recommend Hawksmoor Spitalfields, I WOULD recommend the other Hawksmoors - the others have the added benefit of better ambiance and more polite staff in my opinion. You get what you pay for at the other restaurants and in my opinion that stems way past just the food! Considering it's not cheap, I would hope for them to endeavor to give everyone a top experience.

On arrival immediately made to feel welcome and quickly taken to the seats without any fuss. We have been to Hawksmoor on a number of occasions before and always enjoyed the food and the experience, and this was no exception. Looking forward to our next visit.

We enjoyed the standard amazing service and food at Hawksmoor. Myself and my daughter had lobster to start & we’ve been dreaming about it ever since. The Steak, roast, burger and cocktails were all outstanding! Hawksmoor is like Tiffany’s for my family (who are hard to please) nothing very bad could happen to you there!

Hawksmoor Spitalfields is usually our first choice for a special occasion meal (this time, our 14th Anniversary), and once again, they did not disappoint - even in these uncertain times of lockdown, and having only been reopened a week. Tables were nicely spaced out, service was quick, friendly and without risk - and even with a limited menu as they gradually return, there is no drop in the quality or gorgeousness of the food that is on offer. The steaks are amazing and beautifully cooked to order as always, and the scallop starter is highly recommended. Full-to-burst, my wife and I shared some ice-cream, presented with a lovely 'Happy Anniversary' message in chocolate sauce.

The Hawksmoor team are always so polite, friendly and knowledgeable about the food and drinks that it enhances the experience. Other places of this quality can be let-down by hurried or dismissive staff, but every one at the Hawksmoor balanced the job of ensuring everybody's safety and service along with making time to chat to guests and all genuinely seemed enthused and energised to be back after the enforced lockdown months.

Looking forward to our next visit already!
