Casual
We all want complete freshness and we feel the only way to truly guarantee an amazing steak (or burger) is to work directly with farmers, prepare the produce in-house and put it straight onto the charcoal grill.
We are a casual dining restaurant, with a small area of outdoor seating, main dining area, rear dining area under a full-opening skylight and a lower-ground seating area for 18 covers overlooking the kitchen and charcoal grill.

Team looked after us well and the food was delicious...we had a friend's baby with us and he was a bit noisy but it didn't cause anyone a problem!

We love this place. I've been a few times now and try to go every time I visit London and in the Hyde Park area. The steaks are second to none, the sauces amazing, the chips crunchy, and the ambience perfect. Oh, and the cocktails are wonderful!

The quality of steak was not as good as before. Burger of Boxcar was one of the best in London if not the best. This time it was a bland, pub quality patty. Definitely not up to the standard before. Service was very indifferent as well, not friendly at all.

Came for the Sunday roast. Was really great! The only complaint we had was the cigarette smoke from the outside diners who were seated right next to the door.

Nice slightly hipster atmosphere in this restaurant near Marble Arch. The steak was decent, albeit a little tough. For the price, there are better restaurants for steak. Wine list is a bit sparse with only a couple of good selections. Although we didn't have one, the burgers looked like they may be good.

Good Sunday lunch
Service a bit casual given it wasn’t v busy, nice relaxed atmosphere, not bad value given the area ( where everything is expensive!)

Seems to have lost it butcher shop feel and passion. Just another steak restraunt.
Waiter did not know anything about the different cuts of meat, just handed us a menu. Only we had been a few times before don't think we would of know that there was an different cuts on offer.

Over £100 for 2 burgers and a bottle of wine seemed a bit much to me. There seemed to be endless additional charges.

After their Deli earlier in the week (Great food, service, coffee, value etc) this meal was a let down. Positives - superb Olives and super foods salads) negatives small chicken pie (cold in the middle) cost of sides so an average steak tops out at £35+ and hyperactive waiter. Walked out cross rather than disappointed.

Got back for Sunday Lunch! Had high expectations after previous visits for lunch and dinner. Not disappointed. Went early and it was pretty much full by the time we left but still felt calm and relaxed with all sorts of different folks in enjoying themselves without it feeling busy or noisy. Don't understand people who go for SUNDAY LUNCH and have a burger. It is just wrong!

The rib-eye was cooked to perfection and well seasoned. I highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for a great steak. The ambiance and decor of the restaurant is also very nice. The service was also very good.

Last minute booking on a Friday evening. Table was too small for sharing the cote de boeuf that we wanted but service and food were very good. We went for steak and a selection of sides. Steaks were very flavorful and the superfood salad was excellent. Wine was reasonably priced too. Met our expectations and will look forward to going again.

A great little place with some tables outside for a pre dinner drink. Amazing steaks and very tasty side dishes. We love a menu where peas heavily feature !! Great service too.

Overall to be recommended. Excellent quality food and wine for the price with comparable ambience and staffing.
Negative points-being charged for still water in an open jug at £2 a pop and the 12.5% service charge. 10% is more reasonable.
Not enough to put us off going again however...

Impressive Lunch for the price, well presented and genuinely filling. Peas could have been ever so slightly sweeter with the pie, but that might just be down to personal taste.
