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.

I don’t feel £104 pp was reflected in the value of food and the venue. Service was very good shame that’s twice and mind hasn’t changed

Been to a few Hawksmoor restaurants in London but this was the first Sunday lunch and it was excellent and the Yorkshire Pud was as tasty as it was massive!. Lovely dining room in a former bank hall. Recommended.

This was my first visit to Hawksmoor Edinburgh.
The food was absolutely incredible. We paid £35 for the 3 course menu with cocktail and ordered a bottle of wine separately. Only downside was I couldn’t put our staff tip on card and I was mortified I didn’t have a lot of change to tip as the staff were great.
We were in the restaurant for over 4 hours which was crazy but enjoyed every second. The ambience was so relaxed and we left very merry.

We enjoyed a simple, three course fixed lunch menu with bonus cocktail. Cocktail was lush and nice choice for those looking for something a bit different. Food when served was lovely- generous portions and the rump steak was divine - perfectly cooked. Finished off with dessert and coffee. Service was excellent, beautiful and fascinating building - not the cosiest, but then it is a grand banking hall. Overall, delighted with the whole package.

Ordered a steak and it arrived undercooked. Sent the steak back and it arrived after the rest of the party had eaten their food. The steak was very dry and quite possibly the worst steak I’ve eaten in Edinburgh.

We had clients visiting for a business meeting, and their evening at Hawksmoor was a stand-out. This was certainly in part to our waiter, Jamie. Jamie was a brilliant and really made the dinner extra enjoyable! We would definitely return and use Hawksmoor for future client dinners.

This is my 10th or 11th visit to Hawksmoor (Edinburgh & London) and it was excellent again. Perhaps due to being the end of the first week after the New Year there were not as many waiting staff on as usual, as we needed to wait longer than usual for our courses - although this time that was OK as the two couple were celebrating our wives 50th birthdays... so plenty to speak about!!!

overall was excellent, both courses took very long to come however the deserts were taken off the bill due to the long wait. Very expensive for a steak considering no sides are included and have to add them on additionally

We had a very good lunch in a remarkable venue. Although not cheap the food is of high quality and worth the money. We had seafood which was well presented and tasty. The service was excellent.

We love Hawksmoor in Manchester but were so disappointed by Edinburgh. The restaurant is beautiful but we were squashed into a table virtually touching those either side when there was plenty of space elsewhere. Our note about our 1st anniversary was ignored not even wishes given. No guidance was offered when ordering and we could have done with another side as under ordered. No upselling. The service is amazing in Manchester the staff are all so helpful and chatty but the complete opposite here. A real shame as there are plenty of better alternatives in the city.

Lovely atmosphere and a beautiful setting. Staff were friendly, professional and attentive. All the food and drinks were brought in good time with no long waits. The food itself was delicious and I could not fault any of it. I especially loved the crab starter. I would highly recommend. Location is also great and very central - whether you are staying in the city or getting the train into Waverley.

Excellent service and ambience. Only 2 out of the 5 fillet steaks we ordered were cooked to the expected requests and being a celebration , no one wanted to make a deal of this at the time . Definitely not the best place for steak in Edinburgh. Service and staff menu and wine list knowledge were however excellent . They really need to brush up on the food to make it match the surroundings and service.

Great night. Waiter could have been clearer with communication eg no cows in blankets. But got the cows and thick cut bacon separate. Liked that when we arrived early they sat us at a nice place at the bar and kept us a nice booth. Ambiance was good. Can’t remember any music tho and it’s not a place for value.

Might be quite expensive (over £200 for two of us for three courses, wine and 2 cocktails each but good food, pretty good service and a mice atmosphere.

Wine list is pretty good, although not much under £40!

Food was ok but not to the level expected. My starter of crab on toast was not that flavourful- I think the crab was frozen. Steak was ok but I've had much better. Marrow gravy was outstanding.

We had a very bad experience on our visit to this restaurant. Service was exceptionally poor and food was below average. We had to return a number of our dishes as they were inedible. We made an attempt to speak to the staff about our experience but they were not interested. Won't be returning.

What I love most about Hawksmoor, is whichever one you go to, the service is ALWAYS THE SAME.

The staff are knowledgable, helpful, friendly and engaging.

Thank you, Hawksmoor, for not being pretentious or fake.

NEVER EVER CHANGE!

Until the next time,
