Outstanding service and food to match, Great options, even on the express lunch menu.

Only note if any would be the booth style seating size but there are plenty of seating options so in now way a negative.

Fantastic location for the city or Shoreditch, will definitely returning

Dined at our favourite date place for our first anniversary and were not disappointed. Great meat, scallops were wonderful and so was the half a lobster. Their Malbec is always a winner.

No beef carpaccio for starter?! Atmosphere a little subdued due to WC SF, service slow to start for a quiet restaurant but got better. Food ok, although sweet potato was on the hard side. Last visit to Guildhall was outstanding, this time fell quite a way short.

Being a long time patron I knew what to expect and booked a table for my partner's birthday via Opentable and left a request for a special dessert to be arranged for her. The waiters did a fantastic job of keeping it sly (even had me convinced that they'd forgotten for a split second) and she was over the moon.

We’ve been making our way through all Hawksmoors in London, and booked this for a 30th birthday treat. By far this is one of the best we’ve been too, we went when it was really quiet which was nice ☺️ The waitress was nice and attentive, and as a surprise they had actually put “happy birthday” in chocolate with a candle on my partners pudding, was not expecting but was a real nice touch! Food was a carnivores heaven!! So yeah would defo go again 👍🏻!

I took my husband for his 40th birthday. He enjoyed his steak. Being a vegetarian I wasn't expecting much of the veggie options but they were absolutely delicious. Service was excellent. We were too full for dessert but they gave my husband a small whisky and some salted caramel chocolates to take home instead.

Every time I go to Hawksmoor; particularly the Spitalfields branch, it is always the same..........Excellent. Service great, food fantastic and they could certainly teach Jamie Oliver/Barbecoa what a proper triple cooked, crunchy chip should be! Superb evening

One of the best places around for a good steak although for a Saturday night around 20:00 they were running a little low on some items (e.g.T-Bone 700g) which seemed a tad strange as the place was packed.
Sommelier was a little patronizing and a bit long of himself but not overbearing. The food and the service was first class.
You do pay a 12.5% service charge but they certainly earn it, very friendly and efficient.

Fairly disappointing meal after looking forward to visiting this restaurant for a while now. We were given a table in the centre of the restaurant near to the bar/ kitchen and it felt anything but relaxing with the staff literally running around us constantly. In the first ten minutes our waitress had spilled water over me, gin over my wife and a passing waiter dropped pesto/ something green over my back all over my white shirt. Food was nice enough, steak was great, sides nothing special (actually didn't get the sides we ordered) and really disappointingly small portions. The apology for all these mess ups/ spillages? A free beer! So generous! I'll not be rushing back.

First time in Spitalfields' Hawksmoor, though I've been to Air St (Piccadilly) a few times. It was surprisingly quiet at first (1pm Saturday) though it was getting busier by the time we left. Staff were faultless and our waiter was simply lovely ( I didn't catch his name, though, which is a pity). He made sure to check what the occasion was, as we'd arrived carrying gift bags and later presented us with some of the house treat, bonus salted caramel rolos. It was a very thoughtful touch and much appreciated by us all as we scoffed them down, sharpish!

As expected, the food and drink were up to Hakwsmoor standard. The meat, I'm assured, is first rate, with steaks being the main focus. The potted beef starter, served with 2 Yorkshire puddings & gravy, has been a big hit with everyone who's tried it. I'm a huge fan of their asparagus hollandaise. They don't do much that's meat-free (not surprisingly), so it might not be an obvious choice for a vegetarian. However, despite the fairly small choice here, I enjoy good quality food, well-presented - as well as eating out with meaty friends - which Hawksmoor does well.

Interestingly, this was the second time I had a glass of wine in a Hawksmoor and wasn't really impressed. Just stick to the cocktails and you really can't go wrong. I've sampled a few(!) by now, and they have all been incredible.

Well designed place. Not too touristic. Very good food and menus. Great wine selection. Service is top class. Have a cool cocktail at the bar first and have a chat with the barkeeper. Nice guy. Place was maybe a bit too loud for a solid conversation but would not know how to change this. Enjoy!

Sadly the Sunday roast did not live up to expectations. The meal was luke warm, the meat quite tough and the Yorkshire pudding burnt. I expected more for the price but was a very average meal at best. Such a shame as the staff were very helpful and the setting lovely.

Had a birthday meal here- was lovely, my steak was a little over cooked but still tasted amazing and they remembered it was my boyfriends birthday and brought out a little pud with a candle.
The seating can be a bit 'snug'- we could hear everything the table beside us were saying but service was good and overall value was fairly good for the quality of meat you get.
