Steakhouse
The award-winning British steak and seafood restaurant has opened its doors north of the border for the very first time in Edinburgh city centre. Hawksmoor is the perfect place to enjoy warm hospitality in beautiful surroundings. With a great reputation for sustainability and ethics, the team continually source incredible produce from all corners of the country, whether it be scallops from the Isle of Mull, 35-day aged grass-fed British beef, or rare locally-sourced whisky. A simple ethos of buying the best & preparing it simply means that most of the menu items come from exceptionally passionate, small-scale producers. The restaurant holds space for 170 guests, including a beautiful, light-filled private dining room for 12. With intimate booths for the evening, sunny tables for two under the huge sky-lights, or seats near the kitchen pass next to all the action, Hawksmoor is the ideal spot to dine with colleagues & loved ones alike.

My brother and I got together for a Xmas meal while we could (before the next lockdown!) and we’ve both had good experiences there previously. There was no alcohol with our meal for obvious reasons but the food was fantastic. I had my steak cooked exactly how I like it with a bone marrow broth sauce and my brother polished off his burger pretty quickly. The staff were friendly and helpful as always. I’d love to return whenever it’s possible.

Met a friend to celebrate my birthday and it was the perfect choice.

The food was utter perfection, all the recommendations spot on. My steak was the size of a small baby and cooked exactly how I’d asked. The waitress was unbelievable accommodating and also just fun to talk to. I’ve probably left her a bit traumatised by my steak description but I had such a good time, can’t wait to go back.

Lovely setting - very friendly and attentive staff - food outstanding. Potted Beef with Yorkshire Puddings for starter which was gorgeous, followed by Rump Steak and thick cut chips (steak was cooked to perfection and very tasty and the chips were amazing). Finished off with the sticky toffee sundae. Fantastic value at £23. Will definitely be back.

I didn’t think the chateaubriand had the wow factor I was expecting and your rump rib eye and rump have been much better in the past. This was my 4th visit in 4 weeks. I’ll be back but perhaps not chose this cut. The staff members were all very welcoming.

Great location in the centre of Edinburgh, warm welcome on arrival. Service was good and the staff were very helpful. We visited during covid restrictions and we had to drink non alcoholic drinks which were very expensive. Smoked salmon starters were great followed by a ribeye and a fillet steak which were superb.

Had a lovely Covid safe lunch at Hawksmoor Edinburgh last weekend. Service was wonderful and unobtrusive. Food was delicious and, whilst it would have been nice to have a glass of red wine with the food, the choice of non-alcoholic cocktails was great. The venue is lovely and very atmospheric. Prices are a little high but really worth it. Highly recommend if you fancy a treat.

The environment and atmosphere are great. Some of the staffs are superb but some of them look like they just hate everything. Came for the Sunday Roast, Yorkshire puddings and the trimmings are brilliant but the beef is not that impressive. If you can give the roast chicken a try it'd surprise you with crispy skin and tenderly meat.
