    Do not miss this gem! Expensive, but worth every penny. Went by myself and it felt great, coz the service and vibe was so friendly. Try the Bourbon and pineapple cocktail! It's surprisingly good.

    😲 cocktails 😵 meat and those mushrooms 😍😍😍 peanut butter shortbread with caramel ice cream. It was fantastic and service is spot on. Enjoyed every bit even if we only had a place at the bar. 💕💖

    Apparently the site of a former strip club, it's quite a dark place. Try the absolutely fantastic Ox Cheek French Dip sandwich, it's served along with a gravy boat in which to dip your sub

    Best service I've ever experienced. They ran out of burgers because they'd had a pretty damn busy Sunday but offered us 50% off and a free round of drinks. Tried everything off the menu. Amazing

    The restaurant is nice, quiet and clean. Waiters are very friendly and helpful, which will be very happy to advise you on food. Steak with french fries was very tasty but the portions are too big ! ;)

    Very finest food and wine with supremely attentive and friendly service. Fine dining with no pretension whatsoever, a great experience. Not cheap, but if you want a really special meal it's worth it.

    Good steak, as you'd expect although in a slightly drab setting (upstairs dining room). Acceptable, but Flat Iron & Buen Ayre are a cut above and way better value.

    Everything is good. Very good. Burguer, roast, bone marrow as a starter. Steak tartar for lunch. The meat. Oh god. It's bloody awesomeeee. Best cocktail: pink lady. Dine with a Pale Ale.

    Without a reservation a table is impossible. But if you can grab a seat at the bar, the bartenders are great and they'll serve you a fantastic steak there.

    Get the Sunday roast with all the trimmings (when here on a Sunday). It's a bargain for £20, despite the roast potatoes being a bit of a let down.

    The Hawskmoor have some of the best barmen in the world in their meaty hands, and as great as those steaks are, one should never neglect their cocktails – it’s all about the downstairs bar. Read more

    Definitely definitely definitely go for the peanut butter shortbread with salted Caramel ice cream! You won't regret it

    Oh my! One of the best steaks I've had in my life. As an appetizer, get that potted beef and bacon with Yorkshires.

    The original Hawksmoor, for most of its six-year existence a boisterous one-floor restaurant and bar, has fitted out and opened its cellar as a dedicated bar. And it's great. Read more

    The best steak restaurant in London located between the City & Shoreditch resulting with a mix of city boys & trendy media types. Food is first class and its my No1 choice for client lunch meetings.

    You already know of Hawksmoor for serving the best steaks in town. Well, add another string to their bow; the drinks at their basement bar are just as good as their steaks.

    Amazing cocktails and simple, yet spot-on, menu selection! I highly recommend trying the Surf and turf, as well as the Dover sole :)

    Cocktails are always good, as is the entire meat menu - a particular highlight is the Tamworth Belly Ribs

    Wash down one of the best burgers in London with a stunning cocktail. All that in some amazing surroundings...has the feeling of a hidden away speakeasy.

    Great steak. Great sauces. Bone marrow is a big no no. Literally just burnt fat. Everything else great quality

    Ignore the negative tips! The food is amazing. Burgers and hotdogs are great and the lobster roll is damn good. Great cocktails and music to boot.

    Don’t be fooled by the ‘bar snack’ concept – this is a full-sized cheeseburger, made by blending Longhorn beef with bone marrow. Try with oxtail poutine (that’s posh for chips’n’gravy) on the side. Read more

    The cuts on the bone are sublime. The prime rib in particular is exquisite. Always have the creamed spinach. Amazing!
  • Josh T.
    Yes, sir! This is a proper Sunday Roast! (20£) The service is amazing as well!

    Without a doubt the best steak in London. Everyone knows it, too, so reservations are essential. Or do what @keithtiley and I do, show up for drinks and eat at the bar.

    900g Chateaubriand between three is a delicious challenge. Ask for pisco sours - they'll mix up drinks that aren't on the menu

    If you can't decide on a steak, get the porterhouse to share - fillet and sirloin in one, you can't go wrong!

    Er....the bone marrow gravy. Don't just save it for a steak. Order a boat of it with a burger, with chips, with anything. To die for.
  • Jenny (.
    Who needs the restaurant upstairs when u can get a kimchi burger and cocktails in the chilled out bar downstairs. Evening sorted.

    All the Hawksmoor restaurants have great free WiFi, although you may sometimes have to hunt a bit for a good spot to sit.

    Nice, but didn't quite live up to expectations. Good sharing steak and creamed spinach, although I preferred Tramshed and Buen Ayre overall.

    Ribeye or porterhouse! And do a bourbon tasting of all their Pappy Van Winkle vintages. Or get a very well made Sazerac.

    Their Ice cream stout float and Sunday brunches are to die for, plus very good value and they actually had gd veg option. Superb food, laidback yet slick service and nice space without being too showy

    Mulled cider and sticky toffee pudding with clotted cream is a perfect way to warm your bones this holiday.

    He brought our steaks before our appetizers arrived. Had to take them back and bring the appetizers. Thirty minutes latter tried to serve us THE SAME STEAKS. New steaks arrived 20 minutes latter.

    Steaks are really good. The bearnaise sauce could be better, but except for that they pretty much nailed it.

    The raison d'être of Hawksmoor is obvious from a glance at the menu. Partly from what's featured on it, but also from what isn't; the sole vegetarian dish is humorously listed as the 'vegetarian'. Read more

    If you can get here before 6:30pm, they have a great value express dinner menu, something like 2 courses for £22, 3 for £26!

    For 2: 900g Bone in Prime Rib, medium (of course) with macaroni cheese and chips.
