Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great sevice. Our server was Jennifer, friendly, unobtrusive, attentive, and just a lovely lady. The food was great, my daughter, her partner and I had the Chateaubriand 800 grams and about 3 or 4 sides I was fit to burst my best friend had the...hake and mash and her partner had the sirloin. All felt very happy. It was my birthday celebration and they brought us all a liquor after the meal. Oh, and I forgot the starters were yummy too. Too much choice but wonderful.More

We were recently in London over a weekend and having eaten here before we decided to try the Sunday roast. We booked for 12.30 but rocked up a bit early, and we were shown to a table with alacrity. The single page menu was handed...over and I noticed a Bloody Mary was on offer, so I had one while we waited for the roast beef. We could have chosen steaks I guess but that would have missed the point. We also ordered 2 glasses of Rioja, £14 each which when you are used to Singapore prices was quite reasonable. The beef arrived, 2 thick slices of nicely pink meat, along with a large Yorkie, stuffed with roast pots, and various veggies on the plate, including rather too much cabbage, not my favourite veg - it brings back bitter school dinner memories! It was accompanied by a small boat of bone marrow gravy, which I am not overly keen on, however the missus also ordered a side of roasted bone marrow, and her arteries are still thanking her. Overall though, a great plate of food, and £27 in central London seemed ok to me. We finished off by sharing sticky toffee pudding with clotted cream, which was also excellent.More

First time at Hawksmoor and I was expecting something great. Although the steak was cooked nicely, it was all a bit underwhelming and overpriced. The food was extremely salty, and the portion sizes for side orders are quite small. Also very annoying when the waiter...constantly tops your wine glass up every 2 minutes. I don’t think we be returning.More

I had a super meal here last night meeting up with an old friend. As it was a Monday night I was able to bring my own more than reasonable bottle of red for just £5 corkage. Bothe the ribeye and the sirloin were delicious...ams service from: Jose was friendly and professional. It was my first visit to this branch (the original) and it won’t be my last (particularly on a Monday!).More

Treated ourselves to dinner for our 25th wedding anniversary on the last Saturday of February. Very disappointed. I ordered the fillet medium rare and it came dry and tough. Waiter came and asked if the food was ok and I told him it wasn't. He...left and came back to say chef would cook another one for me in just a couple of minutes. The second one a few minutes later was just as poor - something I did not bother conveying to the waiter. A week earlier I'd eaten in an Argentinian steakhouse in Bluewater (anniversary celebrations lasted a week), where the fillet was just as it should be - true medium rare fillet, mouth-wateringly succulent, flavoursome, moreish. By contrast in the Hawksmoor last night I gave up trying to chew through the lousy fillet. The place's quality has plummeted in the last year or two. The restaurant was very crowded, with as many tables seemingly crammed in as they could possibly fit. I think they are just being greedy by over-stretching themselves, with inevitably poor results. Oh, the staff are very pleasant and attentive, but it's no longer anywhere near worth the price. Shan't be going back.More

Go for the steak! Cooked to perfection. The bone marrow appetizer was like butter. Extravagant indulgence. Sticky toffee pudding delicious but would have been better with ice cream.

Came here on a Friday evening with friends whilst on a visit to London. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and shown to our table. All four of us had mains and a dessert. For mains we all had steaks of various cuts -...I shared one of the bigger cuts (T-bone) with a friend, others had a large fillet and a rump. All very good. In the title of this review - my steak has only been beaten by the meat we get from our local farm shop, but certainly one of the best in a restaurant. The service was also excellent. The bill can easily get eye watering - my share of the bill was over £121 - we all had steaks, dessert, two bottles of wine and one drink at the bar.More

Can’t fault this place, and I’ve been several times. The meat is incredible quality and cooked to perfection. The sides, all perfect. Service friendly and attentive - the waiter even gave my friend a free cocktail to congratulate her on her first day in a...new job 😊 The Monday bring your own wine deal is a fantastic offering. I wish I could come here every Monday, what a banging start to the week! Don’t skip the puddings btw!More

We visited the Hawksmoor restaurant near Spitalfields on Friday evening and was very pleased. We received a warm and friendly welcome upon arrival and all the staff who served us throughout the meal were very helpful and friendly. We all enjoyed our food and between...us had 2 ribeye’s, 1 fillet and 1 rump. All were perfectly cooked to our liking and were all very nice. There was nothing really to complain about as everything was as you would expect. I suppose the only small gripe I would have is that whilst the food and service was very good I think the prices could be a little lower. I am a true believer in “you get what you pay for” but I think there are other restaurants who do steak just as well for a lower price. Would I visit a Hawksmoor restaurant again? Probably yes but would potentially be put off by the prices. One word of warning. If (like us) you fancy an after dinner shot of something just to take the edge off then be prepared for some very large measures. I am not complaining at all but it’s worth noting they are much larger than you would normally get. If you like your tequila, they have a very good selection.More

We only drank red wine but their website says "The London Hawksmoors offer a small selection of beers from our favourite London based breweries, Meantime in Greenwich and Kernel in Bermondsey". Have a great time!
