What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.6

Hawksmoor Spitalfields was one of the first steakhouses in town, and it’s still one of the best. Finishing with toffee pudding is mandatory.

Ratings 8.5-9.0:Now we’re in the range of absolutely excellent restaurants that you might go to more than once a year/lifetime. These restaurants tend to define a city, and make up the places that you absolutely cannot miss if you want to have any credibility as a restaurant-informed person in a major metropolis.

Food and drinks uniformly good, waitperson interested and attentive (and very patient with the really annoying people on the next table who seemed to have every possible food allergy and intolerance). I couldn't shake the feeling I was in a chain restaurant, albeit a very good one; consequently the price seemed a touch high. The whole experience could be improved upon by either a slightly less functional dining space, or a slightly lower price.

We had a lovely family meal here on Sunday. Really good table right up the back, where we sat - talked, ate and drunk for about 3 and a half hours lol. Great food and service. The Hawksmoor isn't cheap but i do think you get what you pay for.

Would definitely recommend it. Quite a fan of Hawksmoor and my favourite restaurant is always the Spitalfields one :)

Wonderful Father’s Day meal here - my 7 yr old enjoyed her first ever Chateaubriand and declared it the best steak she’s ever had! Service could be a little slow at times but it was all so lovely and the staff so friendly that it really wasn’t an issue.

The food was excellent as always. I tried the fillet steak with marrow and onions and it exceeded all expectations. It was fantastically rich and tasty and really made for a great meal. The cocktails were going down very well and made for a lovely place to celebrate my wife’s birthday this year.

It’s hard to give full justice to this. Our waitress was great. The first two courses wonderful, but pudding took 45 minutes to arrive. That makes you notice that the noise levels are way too loud, the women’s toilets are a state and that actually, for what we got, it was overpriced. Yes, the staff were gracious in their explanation of the problem. Yes, we got desert for free. However, we get one shot at a family night out and we left feeling cheated. We won’t be back.

Brilliant food as always. Friendly staff who were quick (a bit too quick) to clear away after our forks had hit the plates.
Would be good to have the facility to extend the time we had the table for. Two hours fly by...
Was far too noisy in the main restaurant. Shouty finance types made it hard to hear my date's conversation

Knowledgable charming waiting staff that guide you in selecting your perfect cut of meat. Never have i eaten such a juicy steak. The side salad cut through it beautifully and the chips were crunch fingers of joy. I left feeling deeply satisfied but not overly full. The mark of a perfect meal!

The usual good buzz of a Hawksmoor combined with a cracking roast and top service. Only once choice for the roast dish so the order went in quick! Quite expensive but probably worth it because of the quality and taste - would definitely recommend.

This was Sunday roast at its finest. The only thing I would change is having an outside sitting area, like a beer garden. The service was great, food delicious, cocktails great.

Would come back!

Food, drinks and service was great. Wine a little expensive but ambience was a little weird. Tables seemed a little too close together which maybe the reason for that. We go to guildhall, 7 dials and air street which are our favourites because the setting a little more comfortable and spacious without being over crowded.

Went for lunch. I’m hard of hearing and noise level was very high ( what is it these days with the hard surfaces ! buy some carpet already!) requested quieter part of restaurant but access was being repaired, however they found us a table their - good service.

Had crab for starters, lovely and fresh tasting but a very modest portion. Had 400g rib eye for main course, didn’t look that impressive. Ordered medium rare but cooked rare, didn’t complain as it tasted great. Excellent Bearnaise sauce. Dripping chips were a big disappointment, insipid and flavourless.



Will return.

Normally I would go for a rib-eye, as I went for the lunch deal I had the rump - I'm sold, it was possibly the nicest steak I have ever had. The potted beef was mighty fine too. Staff were attentive and friendly.

Hawksmoor is definitely a restaurant to go back to.

Having not had the chance to have an evening out for a long time, my wife and I wanted something a bit special. Hawksmoor delivered and we are still reminiscing and smiling about the wonderful evening we enjoyed. Had some refreshing cocktails and then shared a porterhouse steak with cips and macaroni cheese. It was fantastic, we will be going again.

I sat down for a reservation at 9:30pm in the evening after travelling back to London from Geneva. This was my first experience at Hawksmoor. The sirloin on the bone was really well cooked, succulent and extremely tasty. I felt the level of the service was a little flat, maybe because I sat down so late to eat. I wasn't asked how my food was and it took a few minutes for me to flag someone down to get another drink. For me it just seemed everyone was concentrating on closing down and there was still people in the restaurant.
