The Goodman chain may have arrived here from Russia, but the whole package is ‘as close to an American steakhouse as you can get’, says one admirer who loves its stylish, fun-loving vibe and clubby
intimacy – think polished mahogany, leather booths and monochrome scenes of 1950s’ Americana. Take your time as ‘brilliant’ staff proffer free bread and talk you through the various slabs of raw
protein from the in-house ageing room: ‘exceptional beef’ is the deal, with prime cuts from the UK and US backed by highly ranked burgers – plus some luxurious crustacea. Classy starters such as
lobster cocktail are worth a punt, ridiculously seductive truffle chips add that ‘special something’, and there are indulgent cinnamon-dusted doughnuts to finish. Prices take no prisoners, but most
readers clamour for more – particularly with the promise of cult American reds to quaff.
I’ve heard from many a trusted source that Goodman is arguably London’s finest steakhouse, yet I’d never actually been. Seeing as my parents were down in London for the weekend, I decided to rectify that and booked us in for a bit of beef at their Mayfair restaurant (there’s also a Goodman in Canary Wharf and The City).The restaurant had the perfect atmosphere; loud and lively yet not overbearing, meaning you could actually hear each other talk. We were seated at a table near the bar which added to the buzzy vibe. The leather chairs were particularly comfortable too; I would have gladly spent all night sitting there glugging red wine and shoving steak in my face...

I love protein and when I crave for it steak is the way to go. Goodman is one I constantly here about that boast meats from the US. Steaks in London are also a competitive category with Hawksmoor, Gaucho, CUT at 45 etc.. Requires Goodman to out perform...

Among London’s steak aficionados Goodman is known as one, if not the, best steakhouse(s) in London. Many friendships and relationships have been sorely tested with one camp pledging alliance to Goodman and the other to Hawksmoor. “Make love not war”, I say and “The more the better”! I fear the jury will be for ever be out on whether Hawksmoor‘s steaks are better than Goodman‘s and it’s not so important. What is important, is that they both do some great steaks...

The debate about who holds the crown of 'London's best steakhouse' rages on. However, it's clear that there are two contenders streets ahead of the others: Goodman and Hawksmoor. Admitting a preference for one or the other can be as polarising as the Coke/Pepsi, PC/Mac, Stones/Beatles debate...

Goodman City has been open now for about 2 years. Since then other competition has opened, Hawksmoor, JW Steakhouse and even Wolfgang Puck’s own ‘The Cut’ has filled out London’s steakhouse scene. The reason I come back to Goodman City is consistency. I have been there now over 6 times. Each time I would get the porterhouse. One day I will try something else, till then it is the porterhouse. The porterhouse is a cut of steak that has sirloin and fillet. It’s is really my favourite cut because it has those two cuts of meat along with the bone and some nice pieces of fat...
