Hawksmoor Spitalfields was one of the first steakhouses in town, and it’s still one of the best. Finishing with toffee pudding is mandatory.

Brilliant food as always. Friendly staff who were quick (a bit too quick) to clear away after our forks had hit the plates.
Would be good to have the facility to extend the time we had the table for. Two hours fly by...
Was far too noisy in the main restaurant. Shouty finance types made it hard to hear my date's conversation

Great sides. Nice cuts (though med-rare was partially almost raw). Good decor but too noisy to have a conversation if not impossible. Pricey, so good for occasions.

Knowledgable charming waiting staff that guide you in selecting your perfect cut of meat. Never have i eaten such a juicy steak. The side salad cut through it beautifully and the chips were crunch fingers of joy. I left feeling deeply satisfied but not overly full. The mark of a perfect meal!

The usual good buzz of a Hawksmoor combined with a cracking roast and top service. Only once choice for the roast dish so the order went in quick! Quite expensive but probably worth it because of the quality and taste - would definitely recommend.

This was Sunday roast at its finest. The only thing I would change is having an outside sitting area, like a beer garden. The service was great, food delicious, cocktails great.

Would come back!

Food, drinks and service was great. Wine a little expensive but ambience was a little weird. Tables seemed a little too close together which maybe the reason for that. We go to guildhall, 7 dials and air street which are our favourites because the setting a little more comfortable and spacious without being over crowded.

Went for lunch. I’m hard of hearing and noise level was very high ( what is it these days with the hard surfaces ! buy some carpet already!) requested quieter part of restaurant but access was being repaired, however they found us a table their - good service.

Had crab for starters, lovely and fresh tasting but a very modest portion. Had 400g rib eye for main course, didn’t look that impressive. Ordered medium rare but cooked rare, didn’t complain as it tasted great. Excellent Bearnaise sauce. Dripping chips were a big disappointment, insipid and flavourless.



Will return.

Normally I would go for a rib-eye, as I went for the lunch deal I had the rump - I'm sold, it was possibly the nicest steak I have ever had. The potted beef was mighty fine too. Staff were attentive and friendly.

Hawksmoor is definitely a restaurant to go back to.

Having not had the chance to have an evening out for a long time, my wife and I wanted something a bit special. Hawksmoor delivered and we are still reminiscing and smiling about the wonderful evening we enjoyed. Had some refreshing cocktails and then shared a porterhouse steak with cips and macaroni cheese. It was fantastic, we will be going again.

I sat down for a reservation at 9:30pm in the evening after travelling back to London from Geneva. This was my first experience at Hawksmoor. The sirloin on the bone was really well cooked, succulent and extremely tasty. I felt the level of the service was a little flat, maybe because I sat down so late to eat. I wasn't asked how my food was and it took a few minutes for me to flag someone down to get another drink. For me it just seemed everyone was concentrating on closing down and there was still people in the restaurant.

The sirloin was cooked to perfection. It was slightly on the pricey side (hence the 3 star) but I don't mind paying when it's cooked so well. The basement cocktail lounge was a Brucey Bonus with some delicious cocktails and a waiter that took time to listen to what I fancied, didn't judge my lack of knowledge and then recommended a sublime cocktail, the "Tom and Jerez" with a cider twist.
