Hawksmoor is our special occasion restaurant. And Spitalfields is our favourite. They're all great, but your first love is always special isn't it? We don't visit that often, because lord knows it ain't cheap, but my word, the food is breathtaking. It's got to the stage now where we always have the same thing. A shared porterhouse, medium rare.

Being an absolute steak lover I knew I just had to try out Hawksmoor after hearing the reviews... it did not disappoint! I went a while ago now and unfortunately have not visited since my first visit. The steak was just... perfect. I know that may appear to sound silly but some restaurants can never quite cook a steak right.... More

Outstanding food. We ordered from the set menu and it was excellent value too. Service was really fast and the staff were friendly. 10/10 - absolutely nothing critical to say about it other than it being a little bit too dark in the front restaurant.

Staff were really friendly and took our coats when we arrived, my other half had a steak with mac and cheese which he said was one of the best steaks he's ever had. Unfortunately the let down was the choice of fish on the menu - only lemon sole or lobster (charged per 100g) and as a pescatarian I was... More

Have wanted to go to Hawksmoor for a while and happened to be in the right place at the right time, and got to the downstaris bar shortly before last orders. Cocktails were delicious, atmosphere was great. Shame we were so late as I think it would get 5/5 if we had spent a bit more time

Awesome food, fantastic service, expensive but worth it. Pork belly and crab for starters, wife found some shell, taken off bill and a free glass of wine. Chateaubriand was tasty and cooked perfectly. Save up its essential once in a while.

We love coming to Hawksmoor Spitalfields for birthdays and special occasions and this time wasn't an exception. Booked a reservation on OpenTable and wrote in the special requests that it was a birthday lunch - we were impressed the friendly, attentive staff did their most to bring out a candle lit third course (despite leaving such a brief comment online,...

Well I visited this place on the 8th of February to celebrate my husband birthday, to begin with one of the hostess (blonde) received us upon arrival with a big zero smile and a poor attitude. She looked like she didnt wanted to be in there, however as we arrived 15 mins early we waited for our table at the... More

Went with my partner for the special offer lunch deal (day before Valentines day to get deal - how romantic lol). Been a number of times and it has delivered again. Started off with a Tom and Jerez cocktail - very very nice. Starter of potted beef and bacon with yorkshire puddings and bone marrow gravy, absolutely delicious then followed... More

This place had fantastic steak. Just as usual as it is in this country the prices are done in the grams for a steak. Had a large porterhouse 900gm I think. The meat was cooked nicely to my request. It was succulent anf juicy and flavoursome. Hands down the best steak I've had in London, the chips were also very... 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.
