Terrible. This is obviously a separate franchise from the London restaurants. The steak was terrible like it had been stored in a freezer thawed and on the grill with a bit of blow torch. Service was really bad too, the young lad was a lovely guy but didn’t have a clue about the different meats, wine suggestions or keeping glasses flowing. Very slow service too.
Would highly recommend not to eat here.. and is very expensive so the standard must be kept high which they are seriously failing at.
Very disappointed. Ruined the night! And will ruin the Hawksmoor brand.
Staff are spot on, couldn't be more helpful and pleasant. Will be definitely booking to come back.
Loved the food
Can't fault the place at all. Great food and great service.
Fabulous - completely!!
Always brilliant. Excellent food and service, and wine list is brilliant too.
Very nice food with a relaxed environment... if you are reading this you have to try the potted beef and bacon with Yorkshire puds and gravy... 👌🏽
Went for Sunday lunch as a treat and certainly wasn't disappointed. The beef, shared between 2 hungry guys was excellent with plenty of it and "all the trimmings" were also very good, with the roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding in particular worthy of mention. Only thing that could have been improved possibly was the gravy, which wasn't thick or plentiful enough for Northerners - it may benefit them to regionalise items such as this, as I'm sure the style of gravy would have been well received by our London cousins. Despite being busy, service was also good, with one incident worth recounting. When ordering the natural oysters as my starters, I specifically enquired if they were Native and was told they were. They weren't of course, so when asked the obligatory "how were your starters", I opined that whilst very enjoyable and perfectly acceptable, they weren't the Natives I had asked for. When we came to pay the bill the charge for them had been removed. Well done, Hawksmoor Manchester - and this was only 4 days after the now famous Le Pin incident, so there was no suggestion of them trying to squeeze every last penny out of us at least to compensate for this prior expensive mistake!
Amazing evening dining at the Hawksmoor Manchester. We dined a few years ago and couldn’t get the unbelievable evening out of our heads. In turn we decided we had to return and I assure you it did not disappoint. Service was impeccable and the food was to die for. Very pleased with our experience.
Amazing place with fabulous food cooked to perfection.
As usual the food was fantastic...great portion sizes and the steak was absolutely perfect! One of my favourite places to eat out.
Amazing food and service from the lady that served us.
Excellent, as always. Brilliant service. There was an issue with a steak which was resolved without incident. A great company.
Amazing porterhouse steak. Staff were perfect , couldn’t do enough for us, 10 out of 10. Will be back 100%
Excellent service! Our waitress was so lovely and attentive. Very helpful with choosing from the menu. Food came quickly and was very nice.
WOW, Went again at 5pm today 18/5/19, didn't realise about express menu, so had that & wow what a fabulous deal, kitchen forgot about our sweets, so they was knocked off the bill. All I can say is can't wait to go again, steaks fantastic, sauces too, well in fact all food fantastic & don't get me started on the sweets.
Thanks again to Hawksmoor another fab meal.
Great drinks, great service, lovely ambiance and A-Mazing food!!! My other half had a fillet steak 🥩 that was just beautiful 👌♥️
Excellent food, excellent service and excellent cocktails as always!
Really nice food, great atmosphere and great service.
We went to celebrate my new job and we were throroughly spoilt (not the £4.5k bottle of wine) but we were very happy! Food and service excellent as always, couldn't fault it!
From the moment we entered to a wonderful greeting from the front desk we new we going to feel welcomed. The waiter was excellent and very knowledgeable. The starter of scallops was a shear delight, my main was the monkfish which again was truly exceptional, my son had the fillet steak cooked rare and was perfection. Well done to all involved in making our visit so enjoyable, many thanks David and Ashley Tremlin
Loved the whole exprience, great setting and best steak ever!
All we has was a main course.The steaks were really good but very expensive when you add in you have to pay for whatever sides you want with it.Would probably come back again staff are really welcoming but to pay extra for chips when the fillet is £36 is out of order in my opinion.
My sons 16th Birthday and we had another great meal. Porterhouse steak was cooked amazing and the service was up the usual high standards expected.
Our waitress was very helpful and exceptional.
Exceptional food and service
Went for a birthday meal. Outstanding service and excellent food.
Brilliant steak and food as always with friendly professional staff
1ST TIME THERE AND THEIR SERVICE WAS FAB BY OUR WAITRESS RITA, FOOD WAS LOVELY TOO.
WOULD DEFO REC COMMAND TO OUR FRIENDS AND WOULD GO BACK.
Recommended to us by a friend, I wouldn’t hesitate to do the same. We had a pre-theatre express menu dinner which was delivered promptly by friendly efficient staff, surrounded by an interesting mix of clientèle. Great steak followed by delicious sundae!
fantastic food but service poor with several items being missed off the order resulting in the wine being deducted from the bill
Having eaten at Hawksmoor in London countless times (borough, seven dials, and spitalfields), I booked a reservation in Manchester. Service was good, the steak was incredibly salty though. Much saltier than usual. Other than that it was ok. Good wine selection.
I would recommend the restaurant as the steak was lovely but there was no crab, lobster or oysters which was very disappointing. I was planning on crab for starters and surf ‘n’ turf! We were only informed after sitting down for dinner and was told of a “supplier problem”. Disappointing when it was a birthday celebration and not the sort of restaurant we can afford to go to more than once a year!
Even more suspiciously when we left before 10pm, there was a table with lobster on their plates!
It did spoil the night a little.
From going in to leaving the service was first class. The food was excellent. Superb steak and an inventive vegetarian dish. Extensive and quality wine list.
Best food in Manchester , can’t stop going on about my meal and will definitely be making another booking very soon !
Couldn't fault the staff who were all excellent, my steak was past medium rare and dry, at this price and with their reputation I was expecting something a bit special, enjoyed the day overall though.
Food is always excellent, staff friendly and knowledgable. Would always recommend.
Consistently good / consistently 'over-priced' - we keep coming back though and the family love it...
Excellent surf and turf. Worked out to be cheaper than the price on the menu. The steak just melts in your mouth. Outstanding outstanding
Excelent dining experience, staff vey helpful and freindly
I booked the restaurant for a anniversary celebration. I had been to Hawksmoor before but to the London Guildhall venue so we thought we'd try the Manchester restaurant. We were not disappointed, the venue, menu and service was superb. The staff could not do enough for us and we even received a small gift of chocolates made in the restaurant.
If you like food and have a healthy appetite then this is a go to venue. Don't be afraid to try something you may not normally try as the menu has lots of interesting dishes to suit most tastes.
My only regret was not having space for a desert ......
