Because we decided on no starter, we had a twenty-five minute wait but we had been forewarned. Too full to have dessert, we ordered the salted caramel rolos. Quite wonderful! It's not a cheap meal out but it certainly is memorable. Great place for a date, steak was wonderful.
Friendly, unpretentious, quality. Best roast I have had in London and a reasonable price too! The beef was perfectly cooked even though you can get beef wrong so easily and all of the veg was fresh. Will be going back for a hungover roast very soon! Absolutely the first place to go if your travelling to London!
The staff is is so refreshingly cordial and exceptionally amazing.. And the cherry on top with being treated so well was the food! We ordered Sunday Roast and macaroni and cheese which was out of this world.. We were then contemplating whether to have the dessert as we were so full with the tasty food, when we decided against it.. I'm glad we had it! A friend recommended this place to find the best burger in London.
While the burgers were very good the jury is still out on if this is the best burger in London. The waiter was very friendly and offered to make any cocktail you wanted even if it was not on the menu. The bar had a nice vibe. A place I look forward to trying again to explore more of the menu. I like the athmosphere and decoration. A friend recommended the burger and they were really tasty and some even had a different twist which surprised me. The cocktails were good but a bit overpriced for what you get.
A bit on the pricy side, but if you want the most delicious, melt in your mouth steak then head to Hawksmoor.
Hawksmoor | The best steakhouse
It's a real treat to go, so get your glad rags on and spoil yourself. I went the whole hog- wine, starters, mains and cocktails. One tip- none of the mains come with sides, it does state this on the menu but when I went I overheard the couple next to me moan about the fact they had only got a steak. Read the description. Cannot fault the food at all, and to end on the best espresso martini I have ever had was the cherry on top of the steak. What a fantastic to go for steaks, Sunday roast and French dip sandwich!
It is situated in a hidden location on Shelton street, the restaurant is in the lower ground level. I don't mind it so much because they make it look spacious and trendy. It was a great place to try the food, I think its a bit overpriced for what it is, but the steak was nice. The chips were over cooked , I sent them back and they brought over cooked chips again, I wasn't very impressed with the service either.
Love Hawksmoor in general but finally got round to going on a Sunday and trying out the roast which I'd heard such good things about.

Beef is cooked on the spit over charcoal first and finished in the oven, you have the choice of ordering pink or well done I'm a philistine and went well done, dont judge me everything is cooked perfectly and tastes great but doesnt over power, the meat and gravy is left to do the talking and its just delicious. Large portions but not gut busting too. As ever the service is ideal, relaxed and attentive, really helpful with the wine menu as slightly hungover useless people this was very much appreciated the staff arent pushy either so if you want to dip your toe in the world of Hawksmoor the roast is a good budget choice, you'll never turn back.
Start and end with a cocktail if your budget allows, there is an extensive menu and I'm get to find a bad egg on there. I'm a vegetarian, and can honestly say it was one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. My best mate is a hardened meat lover and so I thought there would be no better 30th birthday present than lunch at Hawksmoor. From the moment we walked in, the service was impeccable - picking up early it was my friend's birthday, giving us free desert to celebrate, calculating our bill so we got the best available deals on the day.
Cocktails were lethal and wonderful to boot. Went for lunch last week, and attentive service was complemented by great steak highly recommend the fillet steak. We took the waiters advice for the wine and were not disappointed!. Proved to be a great place for lunch so highly recommend it!
I made a last minute booking only to be told that they only had seating in the bar area, when we arrived I was pretty pleased about this as the main restaurant was brightly lit and heaving with work parties whilst the bar was quiet and dimly lit; making my dinner more intimate.
On this particular occasion I ordered the pre theatre menu and was pleasantly surprised. The roasted beetroot and goats cheese salad was light but filling enough when shared between two people. The rump steak available on the set menu was huge, delicious, and cooked to perfection alongside the chips fried in beef dripping which were the perfect accompaniment.
The staff were very helpful but a little pushy at times. However when the bill arrived and we remarked at the price of some wine we'd had, our waiter quickly removed a significant amount from the total cost! Steaks are certainly outstanding, very attentive service, good decor, hence the high rating.
However, I would not go back. There is something about the place that does not feel right to me. Maybe the private members club style entrance followed by a not particularly classy menu and atmosphere. When you first enter, you're greeted with friendly and polite staff who offer to take your jacket and put it in a cloamroom - always nice to not have it draped over the back of your seat whilst eating. It was my birthday, and my partner had arranged for a glass of prosecco each when we first sat down, which was really lovely. The menu is extensive and delicious.
If there's something you don't understand, the staff are always hapyp to explain everything to you. The steaks are on the pricey side, but not overpriced for London, and for what they are. We then chose mac and cheese, fries and veggies to accompany it. The food came in good time, and it was nice and hot. The waitress also brought us some bone marrow gravy for free, because 'it's so nice that I don't want you to miss out on it!
She was right - it was absolutely delicious. My partner had also arranged for a birthday cake for me at the end - this wasn't just a slice of cake - it was an entire cake of deliciousness, which was big enough for about six people. What makes it even crazier, is that they turned around to us and said 'this the prosecco and cake is on the house - happy birthday!

What a lovely birthday surprise, and totally unnecessary as my girlfriend knew how much it would cost, but it reallly did make my birthday even more special than it would have been! We've booked again for February! This restaurant never fails to deliver on the quality and taste.
The Porterhouse is always perfect for sharing and the mac and cheese is a great side. The fact it's below ground level makes you feel like you're a world away from the hustle and bustle of Covent garden.
Best steak EVER! The cuts are amazing. The service is good and the cocktails are nice, but a bit pricey. Always packed on the weekend and can be difficult to get a table, if you love steak you will not be disappointed. Hawksmoor never disappoints. The ribeye is always outstanding as is the creamed spinach.
If you're after one of the best steaks in town then look no further. Best steak in London! The sides and desserts are also fantastic, as are the wine and Tamworth belly ribs. The Seven Dials restaurant has the best atmosphere. It's all about the meat! Such great steak and brilliant fro a Sunday Roast too! Infarct I'll be going here tonight!
Absolutely loved it in here. The food is amazing. But still so worth it. The service is impeccable and atmosphere is great on, what seems to be, any night of the week. I visited Hawksmoor Seven Dials for lunch a few weeks ago. The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet at lunch, perfect for a business lunch or catching up with a friend. I got the bone marrow and fillet steak as part of the two course prix fixe lunch menu.
Both were delicious, but the bone marrow really stood out as my favorite. Great quality and such a fine taste! I had been wanting to try this place for a while as its burgers are touted as some of the best in London. I ordered mine medium rare…and received a burger that was extremely well done.
They're not cheap so I pointed this out to the waiter, who to his credit sent it back and ordered me another one. A really stylish interior, excellent service and the potential for great meat- I would go back as hope this visit was a blip! Over rated. Great venue but have found the service inconsistent. I've sent a steak back because it was so salty it burnt to be told the chef disagreed and offered an unseasoned steak.
I left. One of the best steaks in London served with some of the nicest sides available. Service is always on point and the bill isnt as much as you would expect for such a high profile and well regarded restaurant. Will definitely go back again and again. I love this place, it has the romance of old fashioned flicks. The cocktails are killer the rump steak my fav. One of the best stakes you can eat in London. There Porter House is amazing. Good friendly staff.
My only criticism is price, however if you're going to a steakhouse of this quality, you must expect to pay top dollar Hawksmoor has topped the list so far. Excellent stuff. Also the bartender was extremely welcoming and provided a delicious Bloody Mary to cure my hangover and get me ready for food. The steak was great and the lobster top notch. The waiter was excellent.
