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.

Ratings 8.5-9.0:Now we’re in the range of absolutely excellent restaurants that you might go to more than once a year/lifetime. 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.

My gf ordered the steak fillet with Bone marrow and onions. This was a completely different dish to the one we ordered last Christmas. Unfortunately this wasn't for the better as the fillet was hidden under a layer of onions and was extremely tough for a fillet. Not sure if we will go back as there are so many other steak houses now we have yet to try.

Delicious food and excellent service! I went for dinner with my boyfriend and we had the scallops and crab toast for starters and filet and rib eye for main. We wanted to share everything and the waitress was very accommodating! I would highly reccomend!

Despite having booked this table 2 months before the date of eating we were given a table right by the door and with a cashier station behind us so noise and traffic were a problem. At first we felt the service was poor but it certainly improved and our waiter was very charming and knowledgable. The biggest issue was that his colleagues never helped clear plates in his section and so we were elect with dirty plates for a long time. Food was very delicious and well presented however . Wine was overpriced for quality but it was good.

From the welcome from the staff, which was so friendly and gave the impression that my son and I were valued customers through to the service which again was faultless it was lovely experience, however, as always the star of the show was the food, a shared chateaubriand, Mac and cheese, bone marrow gravy and triple cooked chips was to die for.

Everything was delicious, the scallops & bone marrow were excellent starters, the T-bone steak was melt-in-the-mouth. Went for a drink in the bar downstairs first, cocktails were outstanding. Staff are friendly, attentive without being overbearing and very helpful. Expensive, but worth it for the quality! Thanks team for making our anniversary dinner so deliciously memorable.

Service was slow, drinks took 30 minutes to arrive. The aircon was on full blast, we asked for it to be turned off or at least turned down but the request was ignored. The steak was average at best but costs as much as an Wagyu and cooked poorly.

I asked if I could add an extra person to my booking, however I was told the restaurant was fully booked.

When we arrived there were about 7/8 free tables in the section we were in which did not get filled at all in the time we were there

I have eaten at Hawksmoor Spitalfields several times and am always impressed by the quality of the staff - friendly without being over-familiar, unhurried and supremely professional. The food is of the highest quality and the wines are excellent. There's no getting away from the fact that it's not cheap to eat there - but it's worth every penny!

I came here for a much anticipated dinner with my boyfriend and it was one of the most amazing meals I've ever had. We ordered the 850g Porterhouse, which was cooked to a perfect rare. The fat was rendered perfectly and we enjoyed every morsel. We would have eaten more off the bone if it was socially acceptable. The creamed spinach on the side and the triple cooked chips were perfect companions.

For a starter, I had ordered the bone marrow with onions and he ordered the potted beef and bacon. Both were delicious. This should have all been too much food, but we couldn't stop. The cocktails were great, wine list is impressive, and the service was outstanding. I will look forward to many more trips to this Hawksmoor. It is a really special place and I couldn't recommend it enough!

Spur of the minute booking for lunch last Sunday turned out well. Hawksmoor in Spitalfields was great, service (after a bit of a slow start), was friendly and attentive, food and drink exceptional and ambience, buzzing, (although they need to get a quieter blender for the cocktails behind the bar, very noisy and people were having a lot of cocktails so quite persistent ! ).

Nice place, nice people and good value.

We came to the Hawksmoor for our wedding anniversary on Saturday and we just couldn’t fault the whole experience. Our waiter was so friendly and attentive. Wish we had caught his name. The food was to die for! By far the best steak I have ever had! And we were given a complimentary dessert saying happy anniversary which was a lovely touch. The food is slightly more pricey than other steakhouses so will have to be used for special occasions going forward, but we will definitely be going back and will not hesitate to recommend to people in the future. Overall, a brilliant dining experience.

We are huge foodies and have never eaten anywhere that maintains such consistently high standards in food and service as Hawksmoor. We have had the pleasure of dining at all the London restaurants (some several times) over the last 10 years and have never come close to being disappointed. We now have a five year old son who also considers Hawksmoor to be the epitome of fine dining. When asked where he’d like to take his dad for a birthday meal, his immediate response was, “Hawksmoor”. When discussing where to go for a really good Sunday dinner, “Hawksmoor”. I could easily gush for pages over everything we ate on our recent visit. Spectacular fillet steak, breathtaking steak sausages, perfectly cooked chips, mushrooms that tasted like heaven, incredible desserts (peanut butter shortbread is a revelation) and delicious cocktails. And all served by pleasant, friendly, highly professional and knowledgeable staff, who didn’t once talk down to my son or express surprise at his choice of drink or meal. He was treated as a valued customer, just like everyone else. Our meal was worth every penny we paid for it. And we cannot wait to return.

Great service and perfectly cooked steak, Hawksmoor delivered the usual decent meal expected. My only exception is that the sides were on the small side for the price you pay for them. I’m comfortable paying for a decent steak, but paying on average £5 for each side which were a mere handful (bear in mind I’ve pretty small hands) took the biscuit a little bit. No doubt I’ll be back at some point, but just a shame to see how much the side portions have reduced.

Food and drinks uniformly good, waitperson interested and attentive (and very patient with the really annoying people on the next table who seemed to have every possible food allergy and intolerance). I couldn't shake the feeling I was in a chain restaurant, albeit a very good one; consequently the price seemed a touch high. The whole experience could be improved upon by either a slightly less functional dining space, or a slightly lower price.

We had a lovely family meal here on Sunday. Really good table right up the back, where we sat - talked, ate and drunk for about 3 and a half hours lol. Great food and service. The Hawksmoor isn't cheap but i do think you get what you pay for.

Would definitely recommend it. Quite a fan of Hawksmoor and my favourite restaurant is always the Spitalfields one :)
