Really romantic with dimmed lights, the Mac and cheese wasn’t to my liking but the sticky toffee pudding was AMAZING! The staff were very attentive would definitely return again to try a different cut of steak

Had a fantastic Valentine's dinner at Hawksmoor Guildhall. Had cocktails to start with and then the set classic menu. Starters were delicious, my rib eye steak was probably the nicest I've ever had and cooked to perfection. My wife had the sirloin which she likes fairly well done, there was none of the usual snootiness you get when requesting this, in fact the waiter said they would butterfly it to make sure it was cooked all the way through. Desserts were equally delicious and generous, in fact I couldn't finish mine and I had been really hungry when we arrived. Not cheap but well worth it for a special occasion.

We tried this venue as an alternative to the one at Borough Market which is always excellent but noisy.
The noise level at Guildhall was much worse - almost hurting our ears. The service was excellent and friendly and the food was also excellent. The taxi driver on our way back to our hotel said that Thursdays were always very busy. Perhaps we will try again on a different day.

I would have given a higher score, if I'd received beef cooked chips instead of fries. I couldn't be bothered to complain at the time.

Went here for my girlfriends birthday, not only were we greater with a warm welcoming attitude, but the staff all wished her a happy birthday which made her day better! Once seated, the options for a set menu was explained and the difference in steak cuts etc... But on top of that, every couple of minutes a member of staff would approach us to make sure everything is going perfect and if we needed anything else. When they brought her dessert over it had a candle and a happy birthday done in chocolate which was fantastic! Overall I would say it was a massive 10/10 experience! Value for money, for the amount of food we got and the quality, I was very happy with spending every penny!!

Would highly recommend hawksmoor for all occasions!!

The steak and maple bacon is to die for. Please be aware ordering from the main menu isn't cheap. The bill on the last 2 occasion has been over £170 and that is for 2 people. I would recommend this for large groups who can eat for queen and country.

Had the breakfast which was brilliant. There was a mix up with our order but the staff picked up on it straight away and more than made up for the inconvenience. Will be back for the steak!

Staff very friendly and obliging- really lovely
Table was attractive but slightly impractical
Noise levels were exceptionally high but it was a Friday night!
Food was very high quality, particularly the steak, but one main dish was missed. We had enough to share though as we overordered.
Some help in ordering the correct amount of steak and sides would have been helpful.
Overall, we had a lovely night

Plus: Very attentive, helpful service.

Minus: My initial rump steak, although correctly cooked (medium/rare), was so tough it was hard to cut, let alone eat. This was quickly replaced by a different cut of rump (??) that was OK - but come on, Hawksmoor, the steaks are the whole point.

The decibel level was high - needs some accoustic treatment I think.

The food was amazing despite taking a very long time to arrive. The restaurant itself was extremely noisy. The level of noise meant you had to shout at the person sat opposite or rely on lip reading. Having looked around, there were a lot of very very intoxicated customers yelling. Our waitress was simply amazing. Very attentive and polite. Definitely worth returning !

Was looking forward to a steak, I like my steak medium rare, however, it was dry and flavourless. I did complain as my husband has medium well and both steaks were the same. The manager was very gracious and happy to listen to my concerns.

Our group were disappointed with the quality of the food served and the way it was cooked / presented. Not the standard we’ve come to expect of the hawksmoor.

The service was noted as being particularly bad, with little interest shown in our group by the team in front of house. It was all very slow and food arrived at different times.
