I had been told by many people since moving to London that Hawksmoor serves the best steaks in town. I was not disappointed. The food is quite expensive but I don't mind paying that bit extra when the quality is so high. This was the best ribeye steak i've ever eaten.

Book in advance due to popularity. Ten minute walk from Liverpool street station if you can find the front of the restaurant! Secretly signposted by an unlit name sign, once you're in and have booked in advance you will be directed to your table through the warm get to togethers, dinner dates and special occasions. Great wine and superb steaks of a hearty size! They were sold out of my initial selection and the side orders are lack lustre but you can't go amiss from their triple cooked chips and flash flamed assorted steaks!

I booked dinner for my partner's 30th birthday and the team couldn't do enough - it was an incredible evening and he felt so special. The Porter House steak was excellent, and the salted caramel rolos were just amazing!

Great steakhouse! Wine selection is vast, ask the server to bring over the sommelier to assist in your selection. Get a steak with the anchovy hollandaise sauce, you won't regret it.

Being a relatively frequent visitor to Hawksmoor's various branches is telling in itself I think, but have to say that Spitalfields being the original is still the best for me. As ever the service was great with informative and knowledgeable staff happy to provide information and advice where needed, the quality of the food - not just the steaks - was awesome, and finally the very relaxed way in which we were looked after over the evening - no rushing to get out. Overall a great evening out.

Hawksmoor was a relaxing place to eat. Spitalfields is not small but still felt intimate and friendly. The staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgeable .

The steaks were possibly the best prepared I've had in London, and wine was excellent, the selection of drinks and deserts both interesting and delicious.

I can't wait to go back, and can recommend it without hesitation.
A great evening, in a great location with superb food.

Great food and great service! They do a 2 and 3 course special which are pretty reasonable, otherwise it's pretty expensive. Excellent service and delicious food though.

Easy to get to and you feel welcome as soon as you enter. Service was fantastic and we were looked after very well. Wine list was extensive and the food was amazing. We were welcomed with a happy anniversary wish when we arrived and were given a little anniversary chocolate display at the end which we loved. If I had to make one complaint I would not be able to think of one.

Went there for my son’s 21st birthday meal and with the cocktail bar below and a fantastic steak to follow we made the right choice! Service was bery good, super friendly and very efficient. Food waiting time was excellent and just right and we received a birthday drink from Hawksmoor at the end of the night. Really good night.

Lovely experience! It was really special for them to bring a little Happy Anniversary board to us. Only down side is that we did feel we were crammed in there a little bit. We went to the one at Bank 2 years ago and it was very spacious, that would be my only negative comment! Otherwise, absolutely beautiful food and service! Thanks a lot.
