Visited on Monday night. The service was fantastic and the food just as good. Can highly recommend the Yorkshire Pudding starter and our ribeye steaks were cooked to perfection. The pinot noir by the glass is great too.

Sunday lunch for four, we all had the beef and shared a bottle of Malbec. This is my favourite place for Sunday lunch in London. I love how consistently succulent and pink the beef is. The only thing I would add is that it would top it off if there is cauliflower cheese to come with it, but it seems... More

On a busy Friday night, on a pre booked table, we had one of the best steak meals we have ever had! Seated very comfortably in the restaurant section we were amazed at the meat choices available paired with the desirable wine menu! We chose the 650g Chateaubriand to share, this was placed on the special board and was the... More

An excellent meal as ever. Great craft beer and cocktails, super service from our charming waiter Rob, and great if not sensational cooking. Steak: ribbon bone; cooked perfectly, delicious. Perhaps not the same aged flavour as when they were supplied by Ginger Pig. Fries: lacked something. A bit dry. Bernaise: tasty but had the character of being from a jar,... More

We chose Hawksmoor for our wedding anniversary as we could BYOB on a Monday night. The food was spectacular. We started with bone marrow & onion and the scallops, had rib eye steak with a variety of sides for main. We probably only needed two courses as the portions are very generous, but the food was so amazing that we... More

Food was as expected - quite tasty, nothing exceptional. We shared 1.1kg prime rib - it was delicious though it could have been served warmer. The bernaise sauce and triple cooked chips were good. The waiter was great, very patient explaining the menu. The only major downside was that the welcome was poor - coat check woman was inefficient, causing... More

Always try to get to the Hawksmoor at any opportunity whilst in London. The Sunday Roast is just incredible and great value for money. Coupled with a lovely bottle of Spanish red at a reasonable £30. Staff were all super friendly too. Book well in advance and don't miss it!

Staff from the greeters to the bar to the wait-staff were all friendly and polite. This sets the tome for a good restaurant, in my view. Sunday is an especially busy day so reservations are a must. The roasts looked amazing but we opted for steak which were a good size and delicious. The sides are good quality if not... More

Steak was absolutely fantastic. Was not happy that a couple next to us did not order a dessert but got given some chocolate treats as the waiter mentioned it. We were in a hurry & did not get a dessert, we did not want the treat but expect the same treatment to be given.

I'd originally planned to visit the recently opened Hawksmoor Borough but the soft launch proved very popular. I therefore chose Spitalfields, unaware it was where the Hawksmoor chain originally started about 10-years ago. Hawksmoor is a steakhouse and cocktail bar and it was on the recommendation of a friend that we visited this venue. A great place to spend an... More

This Spitalfields steakhouse has wooed much of London since opening in 2006; word-of-blog has only served to create an even bigger buzz around the restaurant and its food. A case of the emperor's new clothes? We think no.' Time Out

Spitalfields was our first restaurant, and the general view is that it is where the 'Hawksmoor spirit' is best embodied - many of the staff have worked there for years and would never consider elsewhere. Great steaks, great drinks and an amazing atmosphere, full of people who desperately care whether you enjoy your evening.

We are located just down the road from our namesake Nicholas Hawksmoor's Christ Church Spitalfields and 10 minutes walk from Liverpool Street, Old Street and Aldgate stations.

It can accommodate 115 people for exclusive hire and the back section of the restaurant is ideal for groups of up to 55. The restaurant can be hired exclusively for a meat-fuelled party, corporate function and wedding receptions.

For information on private hire and events, please contact our events department.

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighbourhood Profile
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
