The food I was able to have was lovely, however, when asking if the field mushroom side had garlic in (to which I am intolerant) I was told they do, so I asked if I could have a portion without. The server didn’t ask in the kitchen just simply said no. I could understand if a sauce being pre made couldn’t be given without the garlic but a simple mushroom, surely at such a high standard restaurant the mushrooms are fresh? There was no apology or offer of something else which I found rather rude.

Amazing food, but be prepared to pay for it. A great place for a special occasion. I used a dining voucher I had and it was lovely not to be made to feel any way for it. All staff were lovely, accommodating and welcoming. Everything was very well coordinated, from arrival, to paying the bill, to plates being taken away, etc.

Thanks for a great experience.

We had a lovely lunch , 3 went for the Sunday roast beef , one the Sunday roast chicken
Personally I would have preferred some bread sauce or stuffing with the chicken rather than a Yorkshire pud
Thoroughly enjoyed by us all

We absolutely loved it.
We has scallops, cauliflower and carpaccio to start, followed by the porter steak and I had the most amazing monkfish ever.
Very nice wine list too!
The service was amazing, swift and friendly.
It is not the cheapest place, but the quality is great and you really get the value for it.

I would certainly recommend this restaurant, I brought my mum here for a surprise meal with her best friends for her birthday. We were truly looked after, the service was impeccable and the cocktails were amazing. We ordered lobster which was very small in comparison to the price but the overall ambience and great service made it worth it. Well done!!

Me and my wife went here as we fancied a decent steak and had been told by a friend that this place was the best steak in london.

Showed up a little early but they seated us anyway and then we were greeted by the happiest, friendliest waitress I've ever met in my life. If I'm honest she made this already amazing meal that much better.

After half a dozen oysters to start
I ordered half a kilo of chateaubriand and my better half had a 300g sirloin. For sides we got cheesy mash chips and mushroom all of which were

Add in a bottle of wine and a few tins of cider and the bill topped £200 which on the face of it appears pricey but I didnt mind a single bit as the food and service was great.

Been to Hakwsmoor many times and love it but the waiter we had on this occasion did not do it justice. waited for a bottle of wine a long time. luckily, the bottle was placed next to our table in an ice bucket as the waiter never bothered to top up. whilst ordering, waiter should have known we have been many times and that we know the concept etc. A sauce was missing when food arrived. it was fixed after a couple of minutes but not even a simple 'sorry' was offered. Thankfully, the food was delicious as nobody came to check on us. I wanted to order extra chips whilst eating but there was nobody around to ask. Loved the food, rose wine could have been colder, poor customer service.

Food is spot on. They turn tables in 1.5 hours which I think is quite quick for a pricey place where you want to savour your food and enjoy a drink. We were moved to a bar area to finish our meal; the waitress was polite and apologetic about it.

Hi

The meal was very overpriced considering what’s around near you !
Although we enjoyed the experience and found the service very good,

You are a steak house not a Michelin star restaurant and or are you a restaurant that serves wild experimental food that’s portion size is the equivalent to a taster menu.

So it’s beyond believe that You charge £5 for a portion of chips that I counted to be 11 pieces in total????

You are a steak house and chips and steaks are a partnership that is long established so why pretend to be something else at the expense of your customers

Restaurant is in a great location, right next to Borough Market. Had a nice atmosphere, very hussle and bustle. The tables were a bit close together - not the best place if you wanted a romantic meal. Food was great - couldn't fault the fillet steak, it was cooked to perfection. I had the George Fifth chocolate dessert, which the waiter had advised was very rich and usually people don't get through it - he had obviously never met a chocoholic like me!! It was really good, presented nicely and I managed it all! I was originally going to choose the lemon tart but they had ran out. Great meal, although very expensive - would only really go for a special occassion.

Had a 50 minute wait for food which was a little disappointing but once the food came it was very nice. The sides were especially nice. I got given the wrong dessert at first but this was quite quickly Rectified. Was a little pricey but the food was great apart from the mishap with the dessert.

Another fantastic meal at Hawksmoor Borough. What sets this one apart is how the staff dealt with our special request. I called after making the reservation to ask about vegan options for one of us and express my concern, to avoid disappointment. It is, after all, a place for meat. The restaurant was reassuring on the phone and attentive on the night, serving a delicious meal to each of us. Its high quality food and service weren’t compromised in any way. Thank you, Hawksmoor.

We went for the Winter set meal which was super value! I had the Fish and Cockles which was very well cooked and husband had the steak. We hadn’t been to Hawksmoor for a couple of years and so were pleasantly surprised at how the quality of the food has remained. It was Friday evening so great atmosphere and the staff were still very attentive although busy. Great place with great food and drinks! Look forward to visiting again soon!

Went here for the lunch menu, sat down at 12.30 on a Tuesday, ordered at 12.50 food arrived at 1.30pm. It wasn't especially busy so not sure why this happened, but if you are looking for somewhere for lunch and don't have a whole afternoon to sit here you may wish to consider elsewhere. Only experienced 1 of a possible 3 courses due to slow delivery. Nice steak though.

Good quality food, service and ambience all around....it can be rather expensive, even for a London steakhouse...especially if purchasing the larger cuts from the blackboard, not from the menu. We ordered off the blackboard, and were told the weights but never the prices, so were hit with a large surprise when the bill arrived ... overall it was worth it but perhaps less frequently than I’d like.
