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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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 ......
