We had both porterhouse and prime rib and they were the best steaks I have ever had.

We went to Hawksmoor Borough for a special treat, and it was well worth the visit. From the moment we arrived we were so well looked after - the service for the entire evening was impeccable, the best I think I've ever received. The food was so good too - and we even took our leftovers home. Delicious cocktails. Would 100% recommend.

Staff were very friendly and helpful - picking up on our occasion as a birthday dinner and surprised with a little ‘Happy Birthday’ chocolate treat.
We had a chateau briand and rib of beef to share between 5 and it was a perfect mix of different steaks - excellent quality and cooked to perfection.
We loved the building itself and would highly recommend to anyone looking for an excellent steak dinner.

Lovely place for a fantastic steak. Always have to go for the potted beef and Yorkshire’s to start.
Lovely chance to celebrate my birthday with a couple of mates. Touch loud so difficult to hear but that’s just me getting old!

No one at reception desk for lunch at 1. 5 mins I chase someone on restaurant to seat us, place is half empty.
Waiter spills drink on me.
Other waiter later walks by and kicks chair, stumbles then proceeds to pull up a chair and tell us about her warm up dancing before service. Yes my client is well impressed.
Steal ordered med/rare comes med/well. The lunch is too far gone to save so I don’t send back.
Order coffees and rolos; taste lovely but presented like a first rounder off bake off.
All in all a shocker. Save your money. Go elsewhere.

Had a Sunday roast ... was the best roast I’ve had, even beating a home cooked roast which is the ultimate test. Excellent, attentive service. Busy, bustling restaurant. 10/10

Absolutely fantastic as ever. We visit as a large group of friends once a year, were accommodated with the table, the food was delicious as always, and the service supreme. Frieda was particularly accommodating, helpful, advising each of our party on the cuts available, even when a glass was accidentally knocked, there were no issues at all and it was a brilliant, joyful day. thanks- we will be back- again!

The lighting is too dim, very crowded and noisy.
Excellent service from our waiter French guy originally from Barcelona.
Food good but you'd expect that at those prices

The provenance of the grass-fed and carefully raised beef results in a very flavourful steak. Fast and friendly service, a comfortable and congenial atmosphere amidst the old wood and soft lighting, sides and desserts also very tasty. This is traditional rather than adventurous cuisine with the steaks in a starring role. We got exactly what we came for.

Great for a dedicated meat eater - good steaks with a great ambiance. Greeted at the entrance with smiles and a choice of where to sit. Cocktails were ok but mainly ice. Waiters attentive without being overbearing but obviously trained to get the max out of you. Nothing wrong with that!

Being based close to your restaurant I visit reasonably regularly. Indeed on the 22nd of August I had a great meal in the evening before catching a flight. I visited yesterday with my girlfriend as she fancied a steak. Previously the service had been expemplary and on my last visit Max had been great. Yesterday I found the service more in tune with a hipster joint than an upmarket steakhouse. In speaking to Max I had asked how the Hawksmoor competed with all the new independent steakhouses popping up around here and over the bridge. He replied by making sure the customer had a first rate and individual experience while dining. That was massively missing yesterday. No eye contact, no real sense of understanding the menu, no sense of engagement. It was disappointing.

We were attracted to Hawksmoor's Monday offer to take your own wine for £5 corkage so
after an evening at the National Theatre we went to their Borough Market restaurant. We chose
from the post-theatre menu, I had hake and my husband had a steak, all washed down with our
bottle of Pinot. The service and ambiance, not to mention the food, were all excellent. We
will do this again!

Our server was a bit pretentious and only became more pleasant as we ordered more things to increase our tab. It was as if he was not interested in providing a good experience unless his service charge would be higher. The food was magnificent.
