    Overall experience was fantastic. The waiting staff couldn’t have been nicer or more attentive. As always the food was sublime with my fillet steak cooked to perfection (medium/rare). If you want the best steak in Edinburgh then you need to try Hawksmoor.

    Absolutely delicious steak. We shared a 500g chateaubriand and it melted in my mouth. The waiting staff were friendly, and the building was beautiful. Can't wait to go back.

    Steak was nice, but not amazing. Bit disappointed wit my stilton hollondaise. it just tasted like normal hollondaise. Asked for vinegar, it never arrived which is disappointing with a 12.5% service on it. Not sure we would return.
    Hawksmoor EdinburghResponded 2 days ago
    Hello, Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. I'm sorry to hear that a request for vinegar was forgotten, that's unusual and I hope it didn't detract from your experience overall. Please know that the service charge is completely optional and should you feel that the overall service was let down by the missed vinegar request then you can absolutely ask to have it removed from the bill. Many thanks again for taking the time to review your experience, your comments have been passed to the restaurant management team as well as the Head Chef to review service and sauce standards. All the very best, Mhairi

    Had the "quick" pre-theatre meal. Can't say it was very quick - to be frank, the waiting staff don't appear to have been trained in restaurant work. Two trips to bring two plates. On first, main and sides! Oh, and we were given the next door table's steaks first, only to have them whipped away. You know, they were all nice people, but when you see four people around the till, you know they've not been trained. Salad had too strong a vinegar dressing on it. And this place is not cheap.

    We sat down and where told multiple starters where not a avalible from the menu. That was very disappointing. The female waiter we had was very crabbit & abit rude we understand it was busy , but no excuse!! We ordered our food and drinks. The food was nice , The waiter came to clear the table to which he knocked the bottle of red wine from table & it landed on to my husbands trousers & his trainers which were expensive & brand new on that day We were in shock that the waiter never even said sorry when he came back with towels to clear the wine up This was our 1st time coming to Hawksmoor & we all left feeling abit disppointed after payin alot of money

    Sunday Lunch, one of the great British traditions and were better to experience it than in the Hawksmoor Edinburgh on a chilly Sunday in February. I had booked our table online and arrived in good time (15 mins early) which gave us the opportunity to sit at the bar and have a drink whilst looking at the vast selection of wines available. From this point the bar was set high, as in my limited experience when you have bottles of wine priced at over a £1000 the expectation of food will be amazing.! We were taken to our table (and I will add service from staff was first class throughout this experience). Ordered two reasonably priced Sunday Roasts and waited with anticipation. Arrival of our Beef, Potatoes, selection of Greens and a Giant Yorkie was an anti-climax.! Not forgetting the thimble of lukewarm gravy. We should have read the situation when the knives were swapped for a steak knife. The beef was dreadful, tough would have been an understatement. The matter was raised and one of the front of house managers who did came and speak with us. I won’t go into to much detail but shall we say the product was blamed not the preparation staff.!!!!! However with no fuss we were offered a cut of steak to be prepared and served with full Sunday Lunch trimming’s. I wasn’t expecting that gesture and ordered two rump steaks as the cut of choice. One medium and the other medium rare. Without ramberling on these too were VERY disappointing and again the front of house was very sympathetic in our dismay. We have been fortunate enough to eat beef in some fantastic locations even cooked over an open fire, one thing I have picked up is if the knives are swapped you are in for an unexpected tough treat.! PLEASE train the staff to cook and respect the product correctly and don’t blame the cut.

    First experience here, the steak was 10/10. Our sides for Sunday lunch let the meal down slightly, we felt it was overpriced for what we got. It took over an hour to be served our meal from ordering which we found to be too long. Staff were absolutely lovely, I cannot fault them. Our table was situated near the front door, it was a cold day so the draft did bother us, myself and my friend had to put our coats on for the entire visit as it was uncomfortably cold where we both sat. Over all, a lovely meal but i wouldn’t rush back.

    Sunday roasts were good. 1st ones were stone cold but handled superbly and replaced rapidly by the waiter. Starters were superb. The main issue I have is with the cauliflower cheese. This is not a good version of the dish. Serving it in a shallow skillet does not work. Even the 2nd attempt was not exactly piping hot and has hardly any cheese sauce due to the dish. I am also not sure what the powder on the top is but it should be a rich and browned cheesy sauce. I would not order that dish again.

    Hello, Thanks for taking the time to review your most recent experience with us. I'm glad to read that your server looked after you so well and was quick to remedy any issues that cropped up in regards to your food not being to temperature. I've passed your comments regarding the cauliflower cheese dish, which to answer your question is topped with a parmesan panko crumb, to the Head Chef to ensure standards are addressed. Many thanks for sharing your thoughts, it's always appreciated to ensure we continue to strive to offer one of if not the best roast in Edinburgh. Kindest Regards, Mhairi

    Place had a great atmosphere and a nice buzz, and was very busy. Service, although friendly, was poor overall - a long wait for drinks and a long wait to place an order. Ordered bone-in prime rib, medium rare, but it was rare, at best, when it arrived and the waiter was not in the least bit interested when I raised it at the end of the meal. There was also a fair bit of inedible gristle and fat attached. Perhaps if I'd raised it sooner, there may have been a different response, but the steak was already sliced when it arrived and sending it back might have ruined everyone else's meal. Overall, the experience was extremely disappointing.

    Everyone at Hawksmoor did their utmost to make our evening a wonderful experience. The drinks were amazing, the service was outstanding, and the food was off the chart. Even though it was a busy a busy Friday night everything went like clockwork and our experience was perfect. If only more restaurants did it like Hawksmoor.

    Very good and food was excellent. Only concerning thing was that we noticed that the supply of free tap water was in a lot of cases bottles that had been cleared from other tables just being topped off by a staff member and then served to different customers. Whilst in itself this may be cost effective, the bottles were not cleaned and cross contamination could occur. Otherwise though a good visit

    Menu options restricted by them running out of food. Rump steak which wasnt my first choice had lots of fat running through it. Could get better fries at McDonalds. Wine way over priced - better tasting supermarket wines available. Desserts were good.
    Hawksmoor EdinburghResponded on 20 February 2024
    Hi Colin, Let me start by saying I'm delighted you enjoyed our desserts. We've had some new seasonal desserts join the classics and they're proving to be a sensation! I'm sorry to hear that at the time of your visit we had some limitations on our menu. All of our dishes are cooked in house from fresh and as we won't squander on quality of produce we will sacrifice a dish to ensure our guests are met with the consistent Hawksmoor standards that they've become accustomed to. I'm sorry to hear that your rump fell below expectation, though I'm happy to see that you weren't charged for it on your bill. The rump cut, although delicious, is the hardest working of muscles and when taken close to the cap, can be heavy on marbling. This of course adds to flavour, but if not expected I can understand that it didn't hit the mark for you. We're fans of Macdonald's fries, however we take a little more time to source high quality British potatoes and cook in delicious beef dripping, a part of our full circle sustainability, so I'm sorry that you felt these were comparable. Are you familiar with our Monday Wine Club? It's a fantastic opportunity to bring any supermarket wine into Hawksmoor at just £5 a bottle. It's an exceptionally popular night and one of my favourite ways to enjoy the delights of Hawksmoor at a fantastic price. If your local supermarket sells magnums, mores the better, as the £5 corkage is the same regardless of volume! Many thanks indeed for sharing your feedback, it's very much valued. Kindest Regards, Mhairi

    A too quick visit to Hawksmoor Edinburgh while on a city visit. Service was really attentive as we said we had a train to catch, and they made sure our orders were taken promptly and food served quickly. Bitter leaves with blue cheese and walnuts was delicious, and the halibut portion was generous and perfectly cooked. Really enjoyed their own ginger beer also! looking forward to a more leisurely visit next time!
