This was booked for a company meal and everything was great, we just didn't have the best table layout and the music was a bit loud (but we could've been near a speaker!)......otherwise all good.

Decent food, and £5 Fridays corkage is a winner. Atmosphere is still a bit ‘pub’ even upstairs but overall very fair.

Went straight for the chateaubriand to share. Cooked to perfection, side dishes very good. Service excellent, not too much, but there when you needed it. Not rushed either. Will go back.. Refreshing in London to get good service and food these days...

The unfortunate thing that let this restaurant down was us having to wait nearly 1 hour for our food to turn up!

We were not kept updated on where our food was, and I had to get up from the table to go over to the waitress to ask her where it was, highlighting to her that we had been waiting nearly 1 hour. She responded that she would find out for me with no apology.

When our food finally arrived there was no apology whatsoever with how long it had taken. All we had ordered was steak, chips and 2 vegetable sides!

I asked the waitress why the food had taken so long and she said that it was unfortunate that our order went in just after a large table which was what the delay was, though the large table was a group of 6! She then finally apologised!

As our food was so late we were rushed to eat it as both myself and my Client had other appointments we needed to get to. We usually would have had liked to have stayed after eating to have a coffee, but had to sadly leave hastily.

It was not the most relaxing of meals and being forced to time watch.

While my colleague liked her dish, I and our other colleagues had the burgers and they were tasteless and overcooked. Poor quality of meat. Big disappointment

Small menu which is ok, however main item we picked they didn't have!? On a Friday night. Plus they never told us this when we were given menus.

Here’s for my wife’s birthday and decided to take our kids, both 16 & 12. They absolutely loved the steak, my 12 year old said, that’s the best steak he’s ever had!!!

There you go, and that’s from a 12 year old..

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.

Took my friends here for our last dinner in London, and it was a great choice. Delicious steaks, sides, and sauces and excellent drink deals with a variety of G&Ts. Will definitely keep Silk & Grain in mind during my next visit to London.

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!

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.

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.
