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.

Everything was wonderful at Hawksmoor! From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home. The bartender was attentive, the wait staff super-friendly and informative. The food was superb. The scallops starter, the roasted carrots, the bone marrow were all fantastic. Steaks A+, sides like garlic and lemon kale, buttered greens, and mushrooms all divine. We celebrated my father’s 70th birthday, and the staff made him feel like a VIP. I am visiting from NYC and this steakhouse ranks among the best back home. Loved every element!

As you'd expect, amazing steaks. Potted beef, scallops and bone marrow starters all went down well. Rib eye mains were delicious medium rare, although my wife's medium (which should be perfectly fine for a rib eye), was a tad dry. Beef dripping chips were nice, triple cooked ones so so. I really liked the specially made Braida Rosso Monferrato, which went really well with the meat. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. It is a tad expensive (£300 for 3, although we had 4 G&Ts and a £47 bottle of wine) but happy with the experience.

Absolutely LOVE this restaurant. I’m not really a steak eater but I knew my partner had always wanted to visit Hawksmoor & so I decided to treat him for his birthday. Not only was the staff incredibly welcoming, understanding that we were going to be 10 mins late (I phoned in advance to let them know) but they were able to recommend anything on the menu which we had a question about & they were very attentive.

As for the food, it literally blew me away! It was so delicious, I want to come back again next week! Our compliments to the chef!

The waitress also picked up that it was my partners birthday & asked the chef to write happy birthday on his dessert.

What a great restuarant, I want to be visiting you very soon!! Thank you for an enjoyable evening.

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.

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.
