Poor service and my steak wasnt cooked properly. Sad as I've been several times and bought two newcomers with me this time.

A fantastic evening! I had booked for my mums birthday and forgotten I had mentioned in the booking, but the team brought out a nice cake and candle at the end of the meal which was a lovely surprise. My aunt commented that her main dish of hake was salty, purely to share feedback, but the waiter kindly took it off the bill without us asking - again a lovely gesture of goodwill. Super friendly staff, great food and portion size, nice wine, buzzing atmosphere - the whole family thoroughly enjoyed themselves, thank you!

Great food, great service, awesome Austrian wines!
Would have been very happy about beeing placed at a table away from the main entrance door. Too cold, too much traffic. The restaurant was not fully booked, so there were enough options in the main dining room. Anyway a great evening.

We loved the autumn prix fixe meal. The fish and meat was cooked perfectly and the desserts were amazing. We also greatly appreciated that we were never rushed throughout the meal even though the restaurant closed even though we hadn’t yet received our dessert. The service was spectacular and made us feel at home.

Always a pleasant dining experience! One of our favourite restaurants and once again we were not disappointed. Food was great, my steak was a little under for my liking but quickly rectified, service was great and a really enjoyable evening with great food.

Favourite place in this city. Living just around to the corner have been there for my birthday for the last 3 years (also shoe-horned in a birthday lunch for my girlfriend's - any excuse). Service is great and food is always incredibly enjoyable. Little touches make the meals. And the great Shaky Pete's drinks!

Great food & great service. My steak and chips were cooked perfectly. The Sticky Toffee Sundae was unbelievable (I could have eaten it twice!). We were there to celebrate my friend’s birthday so we were given a mini cocktail each to celebrate, it was a lovely touch. We will definitely be back :)

It was a most delightful lunch; great food, great service. Pawel was the stand out server. But all were excellent. This was the first Hawksmoor that I went to after it opened all those years ago, and I still have a soft spot for it.

What do you get when Michelin stars want to grill the best beef in the UK? Hawksmoor and more and more. World class steak is joined with sides, starters and a reasonable wine list. They all come with consistent, unpretentious and knowledgeable service. For a steak house, the cost isn't prohibitive, even more so if a group is sharing a big steak.

Excellent choice of veg could be more imaginative there was one guy who went out of his way to ensure my gluten free meal was safe I am coeliac not just gluten intolerant.. some staff weren’t as careful.... more selection of veg needed in absence of Yorkshire Pudding .

Very good Sunday lunch, service was excellent, but noise level was not conducive to chatting/catching up. Very noisy, tables too close together, feeling that as many tables as possible squeezed in to too small an area.

I've always seen Hawksmoor as the standard against which others are judged. Whilst the food was excellent, the service was found wanting by Hawksmoor's high standards, lacking in their signature intuitive attention to detail. (Although to be fair it would be pretty good anywhere else). Will definitely return to Hawksmoor, but maybe stick to the favourite at Seven Dials.

I waited over 45 mins for our mains to arrive and had to prompt the waitress to ask for an update, when the waitress came over she blamed the wait on my partner having asked for her steak to be cooked medium well instead of apologising. The manager came over and apologised when I had finished and said she would be in touch to arrange a round of drinks next time I attend , doubt that will come through and on reflection I lost a booking at another event as were late so cost me financially in the end too.

Real shame as I usually love coming to the venue

I usually don't leave bad reviews...but this one was really disappointing.

When you spend £70 on steak and £160 overall I think it's fair to expect a special experience and excellent food.

The ribs were dry
The crab toast was probably from a can and very sad (I've worked with this ingredient recently)
The steak was chewy
The spinach tasted like it had been defrosted and mixed with cream
Mac and cheese good
Sticky toffee pudding excellent

Honestly, if I wanted good mac and cheese and pudding I could have gone to the pub. I would have said something to the staff but I was celebrating someone and didn't want to make it uncomfortable for them.

Bummer.

Anniversary and Sunday lunch was very nice, would’ve liked a bit more veg, maybe some red cabbage would go down very nicely but all in all a lovely bit of meat, the best gravy in London and always a really nice atmosphere

Thank you for the chocolate gift with it being our anniversary - lovely touch!

This is by far the best restaurant chain in London. We have been going for years and have never, ever had any experience below a 10/10. We go for every single special occasion and it's completely worth it. To Hawksmoor - please never change! We love you.

Would recommend for steak but i wasnt a fan of my cod and cockles or the ice cream that came with the peanut shortbread - much too bitter
