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.

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.

1st time I’ve ever been to Hawksmoor but knew about it and always wanted to go, so got a babysitter for the kids for the day & out in London and went to Hawksmoor for lunch, omg it was amazing could smell the food before getting to our table already drooling, looked fantastic and the taste was superb the first meal I’ve been too where I’ve absolutely loved every aspect! The service matched the food very helpful and spot on can’t wait to come back again! Highly recommend!

The waiter (unfortunately didn’t catch his name) was fantastic. Full of knowledge, very friendly, explained all the diff steaks and nothing was too much trouble. On top of this he made sure he knew every ingredient to make sure I didn’t choose something that wasn’t 100% vegetarian. He was impressive.

I always look forward to dinner at Hawksmoor, knowing that something very special is coming my way. But on this occasion the 1.2kg of Prime Rib to share was so fatty there was little meat to enjoy. To their credit, Hawksmoor removed it from the bill, but to be honest I’d have happily paid for another steak and at least enjoyed the meal. Previously I have ordered 600g Prime Ribs which have been gloriously good and way more filling than our disappointing 1.2kg cut.
This is the first time in many visits I’ve been disappointed, so hopefully a blip never to be repeated.

Lovel service from the get go and very friendly staff, we had two salmon as started, the pumpernicke/soda bread was exceptionally dry, appreciate it is heavy but did wonder whether this loaf was past its best.. as mains we had the 800g medium chateaubriand.. beautifully presented but inside was quite cool.. we ate it and it tasted lovely but would have liked it hot throughout.. very friendly team though.

The Spitalfields branch of Hawksmoor is our favourite of all of the branches and we have always found the staff really friendly with excellent customer service. The size of the venue and the layout of the restaurant is just right - with a separate basement bar offering some great cocktails.

Three of us celebrated New Years Eve and the food was at the normal high quality. We picked a red wine that we had previously ordered, but it was a new vintage and tasted different and not to our taste at all. Even though there was nothing wrong with the wine the staff kindly offered to allow us to pick another bottle.

As a nice touch, everyone was given a glass of champagne to toast in the new year at midnight with the staff.

Looking forward to going back for our usual Easter treat.

I've become a bit of a Hawksmoor regular as, in my opinion, you can't get a better steak in London.

The meat is melt-in-the-mouth delicious and amazing quality. The portions are also very generous and very delicious.

Would highly recommend!

Nice, but judging only the Sunday roast here.

The beef was unsuprisingly the highlight, with the gravy vying for top spot. Call me a philistine, but a roasted clove of garlic and a whole roasted onion just out of place, on a traditional British Sunday roast.

Lovely ingredients throughout, but a light portion of everything.

But then I am comparing with Mum's Sunday roast. Which is the best in the country... Add therefore, the world!

Super accommodating for us with our toddler. Staff were really friendly. The food was delicious; when I mentioned that my meat was a tad overdone the waiter could not have been more helpful in getting another slice of beef for me. Hawksmoor is always a winner and it didn’t disappoint this time either

Great express lunch menu, and the additional bone marrow starter is a must. The steak and chips were cooked well, and the peanut butter shortbread dessert was the best dessert all year. The Shaky Pete cocktail is also a perennial favourite.

Our booking was during the week before Christmas and whilst the restaurant was busy we did not at anytime feel rushed, service was friendly and professional and the steak as expected was cooked to perfection and oozing with flavour. A real treat was a refreshing alcohol free cocktail that wasn’t sickly sweet.

I have been to Spitalfields Hawksmoor many times since it opened and it has never failed to impress. It is always an enjoyable few hours in a wonderfully informal unstuffy atmosphere. The food is really excellent, of the highest quality and well presented by friendly yet efficient staff. Wines and spirits aren't bad either!

We go every year for a Christmas dinner. Seated early by friendly staff, served quickly. Chateaubriand and Malbec were just perfect. Great atmosphere at Spitalfields. It was quite busy with the Christmas crowd, but the service was so good it was a room full of happy diners. Top quality and thoroughly recommended.
