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.

From the time of booking to entering the Hawksmoor restaurant we were welcomed with friendly staff.
A lovely gentleman took our order and was attentive throughout our meal, pouring our wine and making sure everything was perfect. He was called Ross.
The food was outstanding my steak was cooked to perfection and was the tastiest steak I have eaten my husbands lobster was soft and tasty, the deserts were to die for, we will definitely return for my husbands 60th birthday with the family.

Heard really great things about the Hawksmoor from friends and family but as we're not hugely impressed as a whole collectively. Just small things that add up really. The service from one of the waiters was spot on but a couple of the other servers were quite rushed and not very personal at all. The good wasn't too great either and the roast wasn't worth the price we thought. The deserts were melted in the heat which we understand isn't completely the fault of the restaurant but it can be helped by quicker service. Wouldn't rush back.

Great food, lovely place but service really disappointing. It took over half an hour to take a food order from us then a further 40 minutes for our order to arrive (mains, no starter). We were then offered desert and coffee but were rushed out before my wife could finish her tea because of the 2 hour window. The 2 hour window would have been fine had we had orders taken and food served to us more promptly. It spoiled what was otherwise a lovely evening.

Can't recommend highly enough - staff very pleasant and exceptionally friendly. Try the bone marrow gravy its fantastic! Buttered greens were a disappointment its just one veg (spinach) whereas i expected mixed greens and heritage tomato salad again nice but too many red ones! The beef dripping fries are tasty but they are french fries (like McDonalds) so go for the triple cooked to have a decent bite! I had been previously but my two friends had never been but they will be back! Overall fabulous ......

Despite booking several days in advance we were seated right at a busy serving station. We were reseated quickly when we objected but why sit us there in the first place? Heritage tomato salad was good but monkfish wasn't fresh, tasted previously frozen as the texture was woolly. We waited a long time for mains and when they cleared there was no comment on the monkfish which had one bite out of it. Very poor. £190 for 2, even with a bottle of average wine is very steep for midweek dinner.

Exemplary service and delicious food. As much as I should commend Hawksmoor for their wonderful steaks a special mention has to go to the desserts. We shared a sticky toffee pudding and an Ambassadors reception bar and they were probably the best desserts I can recall ever having at a restaurant!

First visit and will be our last. We were told this was thee place to go for Sunday lunch in Edinburgh and we were very disappointed. The food was awful, Barely warm and down right sloppy in some areas. Bar far the most over rated place I have visited. If you’re looking for Sunday lunch take my advice and head for the Strathearn restaurant in Gleneagles hotel. This place I’d imagine would be more in line with a Toby cavery.

Hi KirstiD, Thank you very much for your feedback. It is very unusual for our roast to receive this feedback, it is, as you say, extremely popular in Edinburgh. If you would like to give us more detailed feedback on what you particularly felt was under par please email us directly at edinburgh@thehawksmoor.co m as we would love to hear your thoughts in more details, considering we so rarely receive negative feedbacks on what we think is a city favourite. Warmest Regards, Hannah

Service a wee bit slow but servers & staff all lovely, ordered medium chateaubriand & chips, steak was rare & had to be sent back, also not very well presented, also no chips left so got french fries, I had to point out that weordered chips before they apologised & explained none left so you got fries, I think they should have told us no chips left in case we wanted something else other than just to be given fries.

Steak was supposed to be medium rare. It turned up blue and got sent back. It got returned pretty much the same and got sent back a second time. By the time it was returned my partner had finished his meal and the steak was still terribly cooked. Not great considering steak it what they are known for.
