Hawksmoor Spitalfields was one of the first steakhouses in town, and it’s still one of the best. Finishing with toffee pudding is mandatory.

Went for our anniversary, the night was absolutely spot on with a really nice touch both on entry and as we finished up. One of the best nights out I've had dining and I've eaten at Hawksmoor a few times. This was 10/10.

Couldnt fault the food or the service. The food is fairly expensive but you pay for what you get as it is really amazing food.
Our table was a little wobbly but the staff came to sort it straight away.
Really informative about the food and I have a nut allergy and they were really helpful and informative.
Good atmosphere in the restaurant. I wrote on the booking we were there for my boyfriends birthday not expecting anything maybe just a good table and they brought round a birthday sticky toffee pudding at the end of our meal which was a really nice surprise. He was chuffed.

All round really nice food have been to this one and the Covent Garden restaurant and highly recommend it. If anyone is put off by the price it’s certainly worth it for the food and service.

The restaurant was cold , we didn’t like the table we were given, because people were constantly walking behind us. We did ask to move but it was not possible at the time. The side dish of bacon in maple syrup was pure fat and you couldn’t cut it. I have been to this restaurant a few times for special occasions, but we will try somewhere different next time. Also our table was not in a well lit place so it becomes different to read the menu.

Really good restaurant - Hawksmoor team work really hard to give customers a great experience. They don’t just talk about it, they do it, that’s why they’re my go-to place for a great steak. Best service culture of any ‘chain’ I’ve experienced. Their creators should take great credit for what’s been achieved. Stand out!

We missed Sunday lunch which I heard was excellent. But we ordered the fillet and it was cooked to perfection! My son thought the carpaccio was too salty but otherwise very good.

We had a really good meal. Spitalfields is not my favourite Hawksmoor (less spacious and noise than Piccadilly) but the steak was great, service impeccable and the evening was much enjoyed.

overall an excellent experience. We come several times a year but this was our first trip with a new baby to an nice restaurant. Set lunch was excellent value and more importantly it was very child friendly. We loved being sat next to the unisex changing facilities which took the pressure of a lot.

Hawksmoor is consistently excellent on both food and service. It is typically on our list of restaurants every time we return to London. The thing that is always impressive is that they get it right every time. I highly recommend it.

We were told that Hawksmoor is coming to NYC. Can’t wait ...!!

Really tasty food! We got a T-bone steak, a salad, and some fries, and they altogether formed an amazing deal. My biggest qualm was that the waitstaff was a little stiff and unwelcoming, really going about their business professionally but impersonally. Although this was certainly trumped by the food, it just made the experience a little less enjoyable than it otherwise could've been.

Very attentive and the overall quality of the food was good. Right from pre-diner drinks through to coffee at the end, we were well looked after. My only gripe would be, my wife's fillet steak was slightly over cooked - but she insisted on not sending it back.
If in doubt, shout - otherwise service doesn't improve. But otherwise I'd definately visit again.

All websites said we must experience Sunday Roast when visiting London. The go-to place many sites suggested was Hawksmoor Spitalfields. We are very happy we came and tried it. They do run out at 5pm exactly but the waitress was very accommodating and suggested a cut of beef similar to the roast and gave us all the trimmings. The potted beef was excellent as were their drinks. Very pleasant first meal in London!

The food is very good, the steak is very good and we took the chateaubriend, which is one of the recommendations of the house. However I don’t think is the best I found in London and the bill came quite pricey.
So overall I was a bit disappointed, I expected more and therefore my low note on value.

Really overpriced steak and chips. Starters were cold, server had no personality and seemed rushed off her feet, took a long time to get drinks. Wouldn't go again as it didn't feel very special for the price.

The food was great. But for the price, the service was terrible. Very slow with a "can't be others air". Not professional but I think it might just be poor training as opposed to bad staff. Whatever it is , between 4 of us, we spent £439. So honestly the service really could have been much better. Was disappointed

I love Hawksmoor and have been a few times to a few different sites and its always great. However this was my first time ordering the chateubriand and I dint know of it was the cook or the hype but it was just fine. Would have preferred a porter house.

Excellent food and service. The tables are quite close to one another, I think they could possibly lose 3 or 4 small tables to allow for more space, but it wouldn't put me off going back.
