We were not advised the kitchen was closing so missed the opportunity to try Desserts.
How difficult would it have been to tell us that the kitchen was closing soon....

The food was amazing, as well as the drinks. The waitress was very friendly and found us a table away from the noise downstairs. A bit dark but very cozy. I actually proposed during that dinner! Thank you!

The tomahawk steak was delicious and was more than enough for the three of us to share. The meat was cooked beautifully and tasted so good. The staff were very attentive and knew exactly what was in the meals and nothing was too much trouble.

Great steak- we shared the chateaubriand with a couple of sides. Excellent cut of meat - very tasty and perfectly cooked. Very friendly and chatty waitress.

Meat was over cooked. Quinoa had a bucket of salt in it. So much so my wife was ill on the way home.

The reaction ? Well we’re not just going to give you a free chateaubriand (we never asked for anything free). I’m the end a meagre 10% off the food.

A birthday meal ruined by bad food and seriously bad attitude of the manager. The waitress was mortified with embarrassment. She was brilliant. AVOID

Was a bit disappointed as I was entertaining two guests for a business dinner. It was hot up in the restaurant area. It took a long while to get served and the wine didn’t arrive until after the starter had. My guests were polite but I found my steak to be too chewy. I’m not really a fussy person but I can’t honestly recommend. The staff were pleasant though.

Very easy booking through Opentable and given a nice table at the front of the mezzanine. Excellent food especially the steaks and sweets. Attentive waiters and good ambience. Who chose the wallpaper in the toilet corridor!?

Bring your own wine for £5 corkage charge on a Friday is an excellent idea. Lovely steak and excellent service (with a smile) as always.

There was a very long wait from ordering the food to it arriving.

Fish and Chips starter, Fish part was very small and the potato fondants were cold.

The waitress did not seem to be interested in working at all, with some unacceptable comments being made. She may have been upset that we were asked three times before the party were ready to order, but we were having a chat and a drink before we were ready to order.

We were unable to order deserts due to the time it had taken for the main course to arrive, and told that the table had to be free at 1500hrs for another booking, at 1450hrs we were given the desert menu and told we needed to order in the next minute or we would not have time!

A very impressive establishment. The wait staff offered to combine meals to save us money. The wine selection matched our wine conusuer's pallet which improved the meal. I will be back.

Met up with a friend who like his steak and a nice bottle of Bordeaux, steak was very good but the wine list was very limited compared with other steak houses, Hawksmoor definitely wins there. Staff were very friendly and helpful and it was a good place to catch up and chat. Bar downstairs was good and busy.

Wonderful evening, great service and even better food. Went with my girlfriend and we were both equally impressed. Drinks are a reasonably priced and the steak was well worth the money.

Definitely going to go back!

We enjoyed a lovely meal and thought the service was great. Started with cocktails and used the BYOB Friday deal which meant the value was great. Ribeye Steaks were superb.

We arrived late on a Friday night, after being sent away from another nearby restaurant after being refused service due because of an allergy. Our waitress was incredibly kind, reassuring and thorough with passing on the allergy notice to the kitchen. The steak and chicken we ordered was outstanding and it completely made our evening. Will be returning soon!

Great service and good food. We didn't have loads of time and the staff promised that we didn't need to worry. They were absolutely right and the food came quick as a flash. It was super tasty and filling too.
Will go there again for a lunch. Very convenient from Bank and Monument station.
It was quite quiet when we were there and that means the noise was very low. This might be different to when it is super busy but we didn't experience any issues with ambient noise.

Steak was really good. Fries and creamed spinach were a little overly salty.
The place got busy as we starting our main and services became a little slow and noisy level was a little discomfort.....

Waiter forgot to take the overly salty creamed spinach off the bill, but it's not surprising as the place just become really busy.

I would went back for another quick steak dinner but maybe not for a date for try to have a conversation/ celebration.

Enjoyed a very good lunch at S&G, restaurant was pleasingly busy but not noisy and the service was first rate. Food was quick and well cooked, and based on the empty plates that went back, my clients agreed.

Excellent for business lunch, quiet yet nice levels of atmosphere from bar, steak was top notch, being very fussy about a perfectly cooked steak it was cooked to perfection, the horseradish sauce was a unique and wonderful sauce option. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Only downside the loos were a bit of a trek but perfectly clean and the quality you’d expect from a premier restaurant. Would definitely recommend and visit here again.

Definately not value for money. There are so many better restaurants that I would rather have gone to. I should have known it would have been more of a spot for business meals then for a date being in the city. The service was outstanding so pity about the rest.
