Looked forward to this meal for so long. My first opportunity to go since they reopened from the cv19 lockdown. They did not disappoint, Amazingly friendly staff who made my meal exceptional.

This was probably the first steak I've ever had and Hawksmoor has really set the bar high. The service was great and the sides were so good you could make a meal of them alone.

If I'm ever in need of a steak again, I know where to go!

The service cannot be faulted. However, the food was not great...the scallops were not tasty and the chicken really wasn't good. I know people come here for steak and not chicken, however, for the price charged, the chicken should have been excellent! It definitely needed to be cooked more and also needed more spices (tasted like boiled chicken).

Great to have Hawksmoor Borough open again. Great service and our waitress was fabulous, friendly, informative and attentive without being obsequious. Ribeye always great and the sticky toffee sundae was a great way to end the meal. Can’t wait to be back.

It was so good to get back here. You were missed, especially by my tummy.

The steak was very steaky, and the wine did its job.

5*, would ruin oneself again.

This was our first meal out since COVID-19. The restaurant was very well set up. We had amazing service. The only let down was that one of our steaks was overcooked. Other than that we had a great time.

My first meal out after lockdown. Perfect crab on toast starter, loads of crab, delicious mayo and a salad with ribbons of cucumber and capers hidden under the leaves.
Ribeye with beef dripping fries and a doddington Caesar salad for the main event. Steak seasoned beautifully, salad full of cheese and anchovies and very tasty fries.
Hand sanitiser on entry, backdoor opened for exit to minimise foot traffic inside. Waitstaff all charming and happy to be back at work.
Will be back soon.

Absolutely delighted to be back at Hawksmoor Borough. The service was, as ever, impeccable. The food was something we had greatly missed in the last few months; the steaks were perfection! The new measures were unobtrusive and simply made the restaurant feel a little more spacious. Well done to everyone at Hawksmoor for getting up and running again

The food I was able to have was lovely, however, when asking if the field mushroom side had garlic in (to which I am intolerant) I was told they do, so I asked if I could have a portion without. The server didn’t ask in the kitchen just simply said no. I could understand if a sauce being pre made couldn’t be given without the garlic but a simple mushroom, surely at such a high standard restaurant the mushrooms are fresh? There was no apology or offer of something else which I found rather rude.

Amazing food, but be prepared to pay for it. A great place for a special occasion. I used a dining voucher I had and it was lovely not to be made to feel any way for it. All staff were lovely, accommodating and welcoming. Everything was very well coordinated, from arrival, to paying the bill, to plates being taken away, etc.

Thanks for a great experience.

We had a lovely lunch , 3 went for the Sunday roast beef , one the Sunday roast chicken
Personally I would have preferred some bread sauce or stuffing with the chicken rather than a Yorkshire pud
Thoroughly enjoyed by us all

We absolutely loved it.
We has scallops, cauliflower and carpaccio to start, followed by the porter steak and I had the most amazing monkfish ever.
Very nice wine list too!
The service was amazing, swift and friendly.
It is not the cheapest place, but the quality is great and you really get the value for it.

I would certainly recommend this restaurant, I brought my mum here for a surprise meal with her best friends for her birthday. We were truly looked after, the service was impeccable and the cocktails were amazing. We ordered lobster which was very small in comparison to the price but the overall ambience and great service made it worth it. Well done!!

Me and my wife went here as we fancied a decent steak and had been told by a friend that this place was the best steak in london.

Showed up a little early but they seated us anyway and then we were greeted by the happiest, friendliest waitress I've ever met in my life. If I'm honest she made this already amazing meal that much better.

After half a dozen oysters to start
I ordered half a kilo of chateaubriand and my better half had a 300g sirloin. For sides we got cheesy mash chips and mushroom all of which were

Add in a bottle of wine and a few tins of cider and the bill topped £200 which on the face of it appears pricey but I didnt mind a single bit as the food and service was great.
