What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.6

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

These restaurants tend to define a city, and make up the places that you absolutely cannot miss if you want to have any credibility as a restaurant-informed person in a major metropolis.

The best Sunday I’ve spent in a while. The roast was actual perfection. The desserts were crafted by God himself I swear. The cocktails and knowledge that came with them, courtesy of Roman (possibly th nicest bartender in the world?) were a delightful experience. Also special mention to Yesha our server as she was so attentive and made sure we were looked after the entire time. Not at all a bad way to spend a London afternoon. Will be back for sure!

Outstanding food and service to match. My girlfriend and I went for our anniversary and the staff made it really special with little touches like a nicely located table and "happy anniversary" chocolates afterwards. Couldn't speak highly enough of our server who was really attentive and personable without being overbearing. MY girlfriend has some quite limiting food intolerances as well, but Hawksmoor were so accommodating.

I love Haksmoor and am a regular at Air Street and 7 Dials. I don't think I'll go back to Spitalfields however as it was simply too noisy. Next time I'm east I'll go to Tramshed.

Great Bloody Marys 10/10 food was delicious, maybe staff should recommend size steaks to have rather than let people over order like someone in our party did at a rather expensive mistake ...

Best Sunday Roast ever! Definitely need to check it out if only for the roasted potatoes. The roasted garlic was also a great twist.

Outstanding roast dinner. Extra gravy = banging. Service = outstanding. Water = not anywhere as fun as drinking wine, but way cheaper and a lot better for my head on Monday. I’d wife the Hawksmoor if it was possible. Happy Sunday from myself to myself. Cheers.

On arrival there was no room in the cloak room for our soaking wet coats and had to take them with us into the restaurant to find we were sat in a booth and so had no chair to hang our coats therefore sat with them next to us folded up soaking wet all evening.

Then after waiting over an hour for our food the waitress bought us our main we had to explain we hadn’t actually received our starters yet! We were told we could either miss our starters and have the main as it was cooked or wait for our starters to be cooked. As this was a special evening out to celebrate 2 of our party’s 40th we chose to wait a further half hour to get our starters! Our waitress was very apologetic but an apology from the manager would have been nice. We were given a complimentary drink and told our bill would be looked at however no money had been taken off our bill for the inconvenience and time it took for us to get any food!

We have eaten at the Hawksmoor on several occasions at Air Street and have never had a problem. We won’t recommend or visit your Spitalfields again.

I will stress however once the food finally arrived it was lovely.

Wow - absolutely exceptional - both food and service surpassed expectations and me and my partner had a fantastic evening - I would shout out the amazing waitress who took care of us both and I’m gutted we missed her name. But we would be back again just solely because of how welcome and at ease she made us feel - 100% recommend!

Delightful Sunday lunch to celebrate two family birthdays. The service was excellent - attentive, friendly, helpful. The food was utterly delicious. We all had fillet steak - perfect. But it's the pudding that was the cherry on the cake: my son hasn't stopped raving about the sticky toffee pudding. Would hands-down recommend Hawksmoor.

The food as always was excellent. Staff friendly and attentive.
As with any restaurant in London a table for two is always to small and to near other tables. Had to shout at my date at times as couldn’t hear each other . Much prefer sitting at an angle with the corner in the middle of you both so you can speak to each other not facing each other. Appreciate the need to get bums on seats though.
Couldn’t fault anything really would definitely come back.

Came here for my birthday and had been waiting to come for months after a recommendation.
The expectation did not live up to the reality i am afraid.
Although the food was good and the staff were too, we just came away thinking we should have just gone to Miller and Carter instead!!
We went on a Saturday night and you could hardly move inside the restaurant.
We both had the Yorkshire starter which sounded different, so thought would give it a go and yes was good albeit a bit strange as a starter.
We then had a Chateaubriand to share and from our usual went with 550gr. when it turned up it looked a lot smaller. while we were waiting the couple on the table next to us had complained that their steak looked small too and had got a free fillet and theirs was meant to be 750gr.

All in All i did enjoy my meal, me more so than my partner and i would recommend to go.

just felt at twice the price of a Miller and Carter it did not really match the money spent.

Was so looking forward. Sadly the restaurant did not live up to the hype. My food was fine but nothing amazing. My partners medium rare steak was actually rare. And the bill was almost the same price as some sort of fine dining restaurant whereas in fact this is just a slightly upmarket steakhouse.
