Description: Goodman is a uniquely British interpretation of a New York grill, offering the best beef from both sides of the Atlantic. Among the huge selection of meat we serve in our Mayfair restaurant is American USDA 'Prime' corn-fed beef, grain-fed Irish Angus, and various rare breeds from the Lake District. Every steak we serve from our extensive 'cut' list has been dry-aged on site - it's the best way to concentrate flavour - then we cook it over charcoal. To accompany your steak, we're proud of the American red wine collection we have amassed - we know it's the best way to complement red meat. Our Mayfair restaurant is located just off Regent Street.

“Superb meal, with the best steaks we've ever eaten”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

Went with family for a late Christmas present. Everything about the meal was superb. The steaks were the best that any of us have ever had. We were so glad we took the servers advice and only order 2 porttions of chips (aslo yummy). The £12 cheeseboard for pudding was such good value and fed 2 of us. The service was superb throughout. Highly recommended

“New Years Eve 2010”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

If a great steak is what you are looking for in London, make a reservation here and you will not be disappointed. I had the rib eye which was probably the best steak I have had to date. Will be back next time Im in town.

“Better Than Hawksmoor?”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

Even after having eaten at Hawksmoor only a few weeks ago, I had high hopes for Goodmans and its fantastic selection of dry-aged steaks. The menu is almost a mirror image of Hawksmoor, except Goodman's places more emphasis on the various breeds of cattle as well as the country. There were four of us for lunch and as we perused the menu and blackboard, the waiter explained the different cuts and breeds available. We thus chose our steaks - i opted for the 700g bone-in Ribeye as i was very hungry! A selection of sides including chips, mushrooms, and green beans all shared by the table. Like Hawksmoor, the steaks were cooked perfectly - mine took on the perfect colour where the outside was charred to perfection and the fat properly rendered, whilst the meat appropriately pink and juicy. Flavour was intense and sides were excellently judged - i especially like the truffle chips. The steak and sides were amazing, as was the Bernaise sauce which was quite strong in tarragon. I couldn'y have asked for a better steak lunch - I could say it was the perfect meal, and it certainly came close. But i felt the atmosphere and lay out of the restaurant didn't quite match up to the food. It did not detract from the food in any way but for the sort of prices at this restaurant (my steak was £50 on its own) i expected a bit more elegance and sophistication. That is where Hawksmoor Seven Dials has the advantage. A spacious, interesting room, that maintained a controlled buzz throughout the dining room tipped it for me. I would happily go back to either restaurants because there is no where else in London that serves such high quality steak and in all sizes! When i want a world class steak meal in London i will only think of these two places, but for me Hawksmoor narrowly reigns supreme.

“Perfect Steak”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

I am not fond of British Beef, so Goodman is the place to go for a great import.
