    I’ve eaten at Hawksmoor’s restaurants on numerous occasions. This one was fine overall, but my steak was 50% inedible fat. A really poor cut.

    Turned up for a roast only to be told they had ran out (1 hour before the supposed end of service). Was offered the option purchasing trimmings with a steak which would have made the food twice as expensive per person. Really bad service- wouldn’t recommend

    Has the best steak and best tasting food, we never miss the chance to eat there when we travel to cities that have a Hawksmoor. Always situated in beautiful buildings and the food is to die for. Had the fillet steak and sticky toffee sunday for dessert. Highly recommend!

    The place is nice and staff friendly but food is too salty and buttery for my liking. Ordered oyster and chicken. Bread is superb.
    Hawksmoor EdinburghResponded 3 days ago
    Thanks so much for taking the time to leave your valued feedback with us. We're thrilled to hear you were happy with the ambience and the staff on your visit with us. Apologies that you found the oysters and chicken salty - the oysters will naturally be so, and we do brine our chicken but that's to make ensure its succulence and tenderness, rather than to impart flavour. I would certainly encourage on further visits to flag any slight issues to our friendly front of house team who would be happy to assist at the time. Have a great weekend. Kindest Regards, Mhairi

    We went along on the back of what turned out to be a misleading ad offering 2 courses and a glass of wine for £30. Turned out to get that you needed to byob - and pay a corkage fee. And there were also only 3 choices of each course - so pretty limited. Food and service were fine but we felt we were there under false pretences and of course ended up spending a lot more than £30 each !!!

    Delicious food, a bit pricier than I expected (£150 for two, 3 courses, two drinks) but it was worth it for a special night out. Service excellent and lovely place. I loved the marrow bone starter!

    Since relocating from Chicago to London, we have encountered difficulties in locating a reputable steakhouse. Subsequently, we reached the conclusion that the United Kingdom predominantly favors chicken and lamb as opposed to beef. However, our first assumption was incorrect. This restaurant offers some of the highest quality steak available. As an enthusiast of steak, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I ordered a medium rare fillet and it was cooked flawlessly. Perfect crust on the outside, while the interior is pink, tender, and succulent. The hospitality and warmth of the staff members was exceptional. My daughter experienced a mild cough and was unable to consume any drinks. However, she was provided with a ginger-infused drink, which she thoroughly relished. Overall, it was a fantastic experience.

    My only complaint about the food was the size of my starter (potted ham and beef with Yorkshire Puddings and onion gravy) the taste was wonderful but because the 2 Yorkshire puddings were the size of my fist my husband kindly ate half of it. The courses came quickly but we were never rushed. Loads of friendly staff and the restaurant was in a beautiful setting.

    The sides were excellent. Steaks were ok, not great. Our server Sarah was clueless. Simple question about entree and side could not be answered. Each question required Sarah to bring another waiter to our table to answer. Sarah acknowledged that she has only been there for a few weeks however that is no excuse for a total lack of knowledge. Her dirty fingernails was the final straw. We expected more from such a pricey restaurant

    This was our 8th visit which should tell you something. We always enjoy coming here. It's a lovely big old banking hall with a great vibe about it. The menu caters for both carnivores and vegetarians with sufficient choice for both camps to be satisfied. We really enjoyed our choices, but then we always do. The staff are very friendly and helpful, with service being efficient without being intrusive or seeming rushed. Oh, and the cocktails are very good as well!

    We dined here last night, I have wanted to go for some time. Our table waiter was excellent and very attentive, the bar staff were opinionated and when my husband had questions about the wine the guy was very evidently not interested in engaging with him which was disappointing and a little bit rude. The food was good, I think the side dishes are hugely overpriced and I’m not sure my fries were actually as described in the menu.

    Expected so much more as I’ve been following Hawksmoor for 10 years but finally decided to try it for my birthday. Cast iron steak was tough despite ordering it pink, waited 10 mins for a replacement. Also no acknowledgement of my birthday despite seeing another fellow birthday person receiving it at another table. Not worth the price or my wait.
