Had an argument with my mum over too many drinks. Standard 21st if you ask me. Was forced to leave the restaurants after being sworn at multiple times by the bird. Left and only had one bite of this delicious piece of meat.Tasty.

Overall I would reccomend.

Brilliant food as always. Only thing I was disappointed about was we didn’t get our table till 20 mins after booking time snd then you rushed us to get out as needed the table so I couldn’t have dessert.

After bring told how your West end restaurant was and good feed back, we gave commercial street a visit.
Table near the door which made it cold and not pleasant.
Portion size on the chatuex steak was very small and normally explain and cut In front of you.
Over all bill 390 pound not a experience we would remember
Service charge is unacceptable.

The Hawksmoor Spitalfields is consistently excellent. The staff are welcoming, friendly, attentive and helpful. They know the menu inside-out & upside-down and are able to recommend a wine pairing or elaborate on a particular dish with ease and expertise. The food is always outstanding, bold and brilliant and every visit is something to look forward to. I had the Sunday roast for the first time and it was, as expected, exceptional. The beef was perfectly cook and deeply delicious, the gravy lifted and complemented everything it touched, the Yorkshire pudding was absolutely gigantic and just right for soaking up as much gravy as possible, the potatoes were crisp and fluffy, and the roasted carrots, onion & cabbage added some fresh, punchy flavours. Bravo!

Seriously, the cast iron fillet was a revelation. We managed dinner, wine, and more than a few drinks in 75 minutes. It was good to see even with Tier 2, tables were full. Smaller number of covers at each, but busy nonetheless. All very safe with Covid measures in place.

Dinner and service was great. The 10PM curfew though is ridiculous for a restaurant that clearly has taken all the required safety measures. It's really unfair to businesses and their customers that at least an additional hour cannot be afforded.

It allows people to enjoy a meal without being rushed and staggers people onto the streets home.

If the government is going to allow hospitality to open, such stringent measures need to be reconsidered.

The quality of the food is outrageous. One of the best meals I've ever had. Especially the steak. I cannot recommend the iron skillet fillet steak with bone marrow and onions enough. It was phenomenal.

Its not cheap but as a treat its well worth it.

Delicious food and delightful service.
We all had the Sunday roast. Had made a reservation for 4.45pm and they were quick to ask if we wanted the roast as only a few left.

The drinks were also amazing. Our waiter looked after us very well.

One of the best Sunday lunches I have had, will definitely be returning.
The service was also fantastic, I am a coeliac and waiter came up to say he was aware of this and explained how everything would work without being promoted which is unusual.

I was very disappointed with my experience at hawksmoor my friend had come to visit from Liverpool and wanted roast so I had suggested we go there. The roast was disappointing-half ur plate was cabbage so that the plate looked “full” the beef tasted reheated and I had sticky toffee pudding which tasted microwaved. I was disappointed and embarrassed I had suggested to go here with my friend

Whilst I love Hawksmoor (big fan) I was left extremely disappointed when we arrived on Sunday expecting a roast dinner, unfortunately I was told that we booked too late for it. This was disappointing as we would have booked elsewhere if we knew this was the case - their website and booking system does not specify any time frame for a roast dinner on Sunday so I would advise making this more clear.

You could easily walk pass this little gem of a restaurant and is mor spacious than it looks from outside. The quality of the food could not be faulted - I had the bream which just melted in my mouth, my daughter had the lobster and my brother the rib eye steak. Hawksmoor Calling is one of the best highballs I’ve had in a very long time. My daughter also thoroughly enjoyed her Grapefruit Sgroppino. 10/10 for service.
