Always an amazing experience. Express menu is superb value for money and the aperitif cocktails are incredible. Service is always spot on and the food never lets you down. There are incredible options on every course, so the only bad thing is to have to choose one! Will return :)

A bit pricey really, but it was a business lunch so had to pull out the stops. I ordered a green salad and it came as a whole green salad flower with leaves flared outside the dish . Not very easy to eat with massive leaves flicking dripping vinaigrette eveywhere. Would have appreciated it if they were torn to more edible pieces. Overall decent grub as you would expect from Hawksoor, just not sure it warrants such a high price tag at times

We had fresh oyster for starters, they taste great but the oyster sizes do vary quite a bit.
For main we had Chateaubriand steak, bone marrow, triple cooked fries and creamy spinach.
The steak is the highlight, very tasty and tender.
The side dishes are very good too.
For dessert we had a strawberry sobret with cream along with some tea.
The food is great, service is very attentive, but the restaurant may be a little bit dark.

As an American from the Midwest, I can tell you that Hawksmoor knows how to cook and serve a great steak. We currently live around the corner from Hawksmoor Borough Market and come here when we need our ribeye fix. The creamed Spinach is also a favorite. In the summer there are lots of healthy side options like Broccoli and Tomato Salad. I am usually disappointed with side options in the winter, though Spinach is a mainstay. Highly recommended for Steak, great wines with excellent advice and great cocktails.

Great food as always. Only feedback is putting a 12.5% service charge on a bill for two people feels a bit unnecessary. I would of happily left a tip but having to pay nearly £20 for average service doesn’t feel right to me.

I loved the vibe – really nice environment. We would definitely return for (yet) another visit, having been to various other Hawksmoor branches and enjoyed them lots. The chateaubriand was a particular highlight, having previously gone for sharing a couple of different steaks was well worth going for something bigger. Sides and sauces were good, although remain a tad pricey. Service was excellent – relaxed, informed and friendly. BYO on a Monday is fantastic.

Food and atmosphere lovely as usual but the service was not great.
Was waiting for a glass of wine nearly 20 minutes and only received it once i asked if it was coming or not.
Also, catching the waiter’s attention to enquire about the wine was difficult.
Once the wine eventually arrived, not even a single word of apology was offered.

Food was exquisite, the best beef tartare we had ever tasted before! Ambient is aso great, reminds of an American private club in the 30-40s. Service was on the slow side even though the restaurant was not full on a Sunday evening.

Went there for my birthday. Had a really delicious roast. Would have given 5 stars for the food except that I didn’t have enough beef because one of my slices was mostly fat. The sticky toffee pudding was outstanding. My husband was slightly put out that they didn’t acknowledge my birthday at all even though he’d made a point of telling them. Service was friendly enough. Would definitely recommend and return.

As always, Hawksmoor's Sunday beef roast is magnificent. Dare one say that it is their best meal of the week? The beef is of course succulent, tasty and easy to cut and eat. The plate is full of beef, Yorkshire pudding and a selection of seasonal vegetables, including great roast potatoes. The great gravy is served in a separate small jug per person. As always, the portion was so good, that none is us hadcroom for dessert.
They have a selection of very unusual cocktails and a good, though pricy, wine list.
Well recommended of carnivores.

The food was excellent however the service was really very poor. The staff were disinterested and not bothered. It was my sons 15 th birthday which I had said when booking, not one mention of this at all evening. Front of house and waiting staff lacked any warmth or customer service skills. Very disappointed and this took away from what was truly delicious , good food.

The staff were very attentive to my wife’s various allergies / food intolerances advising her accordingly.
