The staff were very attentive and had the right mix of paying attention whilst letting us get on with our business conversation!
Great advice on the menu and accompanying wine

Staff very attentive, but hard to know who they were as no ‘uniform’ - it did get very noisy, but the 20 somethings in the group didn’t mind this - maybe just me - 50 something :( (!!) - GOOD QUALITY, tasty food - THANK YOU

poor customer service - rude and pompous staff give the impression they’re doing you a favour by letting you through the door.

A wonderful birthday treat for my partner! All the staff were delighted, friendly but not on top of us! Neither did we feel rushed to leave! Perfect afternoon!

Steak was amazing and perfectly cooked. Creamed spinach and dripping fries couldn’t be faulted. Good selection of wines - even the cheaper of the selection was great and our glasses were kept topped up. Was quite loud and dark but as we had a later table it got quieter which was better for group conversation.

Simply the best steak we’ve ever eaten in our lives! The waiter was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in recommending what steaks to have. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the sides to accompany were delicious! The sticky toffee pudding for desert was also the best I’ve ever had! All in all a meal of superlatives! Thank you!

One of the best meals and settings I have been. It was my girlfriends birthday and we were given a glass of bubbly and she got a dessert with happy birthday and a candle. All without my planning and free, so she was very happy. Best Steak I have ever had and we will be attending again for sure.

Still great but our waitress seemed to be covering too many tables so we didn't experience the level of service we're accustomed to at the Hawkesmore. Food was still great and the Irish Coffee never let's you down!

The service wasn’t as good as it should have been for what we paid. We kept having to ask for parts of our food that hadn’t come.

Food was excellent, but the drunken city sods at the other tables were aggressive and irritating, screaming at each other throughout the meal. Maybe keep the bar separate from the dining?

Everything very good but ambience and space does not give much room for privacy to have a quiet or intimate dining / conversation experience

Ended up being great night and meal.

Didn’t start off to well as we were sat/tabled next to, what turned out to be, a drunk, obnoxious and offensive customer and friend towards the hawksmoor staff. But staff at Hawksmoor were excellent, as when we approached them they could see our pain and re-tabled us somewhere else swiftly and were brilliant.

So overall my wife and I had great experience at Hawksmoor!

I’ve been to Hawksmoor Manchester before, so I know the menu and I know what I like/what to expect. This was my first time at the Borough Market restaurant, and I wasn’t disappointed. However, it didn’t quite match up to the last two times I’ve dined at these restaurants. The bone marrow (which is to die for) didn’t come with onions like the previous times, but I wasn’t going to kick up a fuss about it. The rib eye was good, but not as great as it has been before, but steak is very rarely consistent in its flavour and texture, despite the cut and cooking being the same. My girlfriend got the sirloin cooked medium-well (sacrilege!), but it was actually delicious and juicy, possibly better than my mid-rare rib eye. The mac & cheese was good but a little underseasoned, could’ve done with a touch more seasoning. My girlfriend loved the cocktail (something with gin, rose water, white chocolate?), the fennel & pear salad was incredible, and the passion fruit sorbet was amazing. As usual, the service was on point and the server was tipped appropriately for her excellent service. It was pretty busy and really a little too hot and noisy, but it wasn’t unbearable. It’s an old building, but a bit of AC would’ve been nice. Overall still a good experience and would eat there again.

Very nice food, service was great. Ordered a drink that I didn’t really like, waiter saw I hadn’t drunk any of it and took it off the bill, without me even asking!

Lovely restaurant, great food, great service. Went for a Sunday roast, which was excellent.
The only thing that let them down, was the amount of tables crammed into the space. You were sat inches from other diners & it was tricky to get around without bumping into people sat down. Even the staff get bumping into each other.

Overall a great restaurant, just perhaps not the best place to take someone that may need a bit of space to get around!

An additional person to our booked party of 5 initially was told they had no space but a little persistence on our part paid off. Within 5 minutes, we were sat on a table of 6 and our meat feast could begin! All of our steaks were incredible, the sides were delicious too and portions were more than adequate. Great advice on our wine selection, too. We’ll definitely be back for more soon...
