Hawksmoor is the perfect place to enjoy warm hospitality in beautiful surroundings.

The restaurant holds space for 170 guests, including a beautiful, light-filled private dining room for 12.

Got starters wrong and then confusion about the steak order but made up for it by deducting two cocktails off the bill

After being blown away by the London restaurant I had high hopes for Edinburgh and it did not disappoint. I hasn’t even finished my meal and I was planning my next visit. The Hawksmoor is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in.

Excellent service, exceptional food especially the Vietnam Oysters and the desserts. The aged beef was real good though I found it on the expensive side.

Amazing venue but sadly was sat together in a crowded side room which the restaurant appeared to want to fill first, prior to sitting people in the more impressive main room.
Food was tasty but overall think the sides/sauces are overpriced.
Friendly and attentive staff.
The bars in the same building - two fun cocktail bars - mad for a fun pre-dinner drink location

Overall a pleasant experience but I think over priced

A lovely restaurant, we enjoyed some very delicious steaks (fillet and rib-eye), excellently cooked as well as some lovely triple-cooked chips and creamed spinach. The drinks were excellent to match. Lovely ambiance, and the service was relaxed, attentive and friendly.

The service was great but the food was fairly expensive and the steaks came out blue when asked for medium rare. Cocktails were excellent and the quality was good.

A bit haphazard, they hadn’t noticed our reservation and so were told to get a drink and wait at the bar. Only a few minutes wait. Miscommunication between kitchen and servers created a few odd moments. Several menu items unavailable. Over salted fries made them inedible. Warm, comfortable and friendly though.

We all had the early diner Express menu, which was a good choice of three different items for all three courses and was £25 or £22 for 2 courses. It was really good and a well picked menu to choose from. I would say it was excellent value for a top end restaurant. We are definitely going back. Would get expensive for a family of four on the main menu is my only reservation, but probably not any more than a comparable establishment.

Staff is lovely, food is very nice but the side dishes are far too expensive. How can you charge £5 for a bowl of spinach, it’s very expensive.
My boys had a steaks and they were very happy with them. I had a halibut and it was dry.
We were a bit disappointed that we had to search for staff to add some more food.

Thank you

I was looking forward to the dinner as i love steak and assumed that this would be really good. Unfortunately, the steak was overcooked even though I had asked for it rare. The starter, mackeral salad, was lovely.

This was not our 1st visit to Hawksmoor and it was excellent as we expected but you do need to be prepared to pay for it.

We had a lovely time, the cocktails were incredibly tasty, the rump steak was delicious. One of our sides came out 2 mins after the rest as the chef remade it as he thought it was burnt, therefore we weren’t charged for it! Great service and staff.

Wonderful evening and great atmosphere. The food was lovely and the waitress was very helpful in guiding portion sizes. My only criticism would be our table. We were seated on a table where the staff were constantly having to squeeze past my husband to serve the other tables. There were too many tables crammed in one area. If he was a larger man he would have had to get up to let them through which really is not what you expect in a lovely restaurant.
