We had a lovely time dining at the hawksmoor! We were a little disappointed to find lobster for the surf n turf was not available but we apreciate it was sunday evening. The bone in prime rib was cooked to perfection, amazing sides, scraping my grilled bone marrow in to my mash and gravy was my finest hour! Lovely wine, a langhe nebbiolo was the perfect accompaniment and the service from Victor was very down to earth with plenty of personality! Thanks for a great time!

Second visit to a Hawksmoor in London, first to this one south of the river. Overall we had a fabulous visit, a really relaxed setting and vibe and hidden away off Borough market. Thought our menu choices were good but a couple of things fell short to mean a score of 4 instead of 5. For the price the hand-dived scallops were nice but just lacked a little something for me personally; and whilst the chateaubriand was cooked to perfection and delicious (we were a little out-faced having been pushed into order a larger portion than we had originally wanted due to our minimum size no longer been available). So those two personal factors for me stopped me awarding outstanding. That said would still highly recommend a visit; and would visit again.

Food is great staff are friendly! We had steak for dinner. Price is slightly higher than the usual restaurants but it's definitely worth the money. The taste was amazing and it's nicely done. The taste and texture were so good that you can actually have it without any sauce on it. Of course, with the sauce you would brought your taste bud to a different level. Even the fries and ketchup were good. One will never regret visiting this restaurant.

Such a perfect meal with friendly, attentive service. It’s rare to eat somewhere where everything is just right, from the steak to the sides to dessert. The glass of champagne to start and bottle of Burgundy were spot on, too. My favourite steak place in London.

Super super delicious place for a roast - wow. Very very generous portions. Particularly liked it as it was the classic roast ingredients done extraordinarily well, none of that fussy new stuff some places try and do. Couldn't recommend more - lovely staff too.

Post wedding weekend celebration. First time a Hawksmoor restaurant, which was a welcome haven on a horrendously rainy evening.
Very friendly & professional welcome. Had drinks at bar & bar staff very knowledgeable and attentive.
Main meal was fabulous, chose a steak to share recommend by staff - excellent, cooked carefully to exact rareness. All very tasty with s comfortable environment.

A vibrant venue with great cocktail and wine list. Steak-focused menu (of course) with some interesting vegetarian and fish options. All round great - just a little too much up-selling by our waiter.

Exceptional service and delicious food. The London Cru red wine was superb though all drinks were very expensive. At just over £13 for a G&T and £8 for the cheapest 175ml glass of red wine (£10 for the London Cru) it is easy to spend 1/3 of the total bill on booze.

We were there to celebrate my wife's birthday and they made it a right special occasion.
the waiter gave some great advice on food choices and steak sizes.
my wife received a nice birthday plate with some great chocolates on it,
her comments were one of the best rib-eye steaks eaten.

I've been fortunate to try out a few of the Hawksmoor restaurants, but this immediately became my favourite. The location and ambience were much stuffy than some of those in the West End. The beef was the best of the high standards I've come to expect. I'll be back...
