Expect ‘fancy seafood to rival its mighty steak’ at this branch of the swaggering, red-blooded Hawksmoor chain, thanks to input from fish guru Mitch Tonks. Battered queenie scallops come with tangy
tartare sauce, luxuries such as turbot are grilled over charcoal and Dartmouth lobster is steamed just-so. As for meat, prime protein from British beasts still figures large – T-bone, porterhouse,
rib-eye and the like are all in fine fettle and cooked to perfection (ours ‘sliced like cake’, notes one reader). Enthusiasm for details such as bone-marrow gravy and anchovy hollandaise
(‘condiment heaven’) suggest this is a kitchen with all-round skills, and the ‘express’ menu offers an affordable way in. The clientele is emphatically ‘Y-chromosome heavy’ – not surprising, given
the menu’s preferences, the voluminous room’s plush, clubby, art-deco surrounds and the classy cocktails on offer at the fabulous bar.
Vegetarians, turn aside. This isn’t a place for you. This is a place for some serious meat eating. It’s a cold blustery Sunday & we’re here for a Sunday roast.I must admit, I’ve never really warmed to the traditional roast that, come Sunday, seems to be on the much wished for list of so many around me. But nevertheless, I’m usually impressed with whatever the Hawksmoor stumps up and so off we go.I kick things off with a Bloody Mary – it’s spicy, it’s zingy and they’ve even brought me some Tabasco in case it needs livening up further...

Back again at Hawksmoor. I remember to myself saying I just got to comeback and try their other premium cuts steaks, starters and dessert… The opportunity has come.. So without further ado, here’s what I have...

Hawksmoor have really put Steakhouses in London back on the map. Their success with there 3 other enterprises have justified this huge new restaurant in air street that spans most of the Reagent's Street, knowing that they are going to have no problems filling it. This really is in the heart of tourist London, but like the Seven Dials restaurant, despite location, the entrance is subtle with heavy doors. Only those steak worthy may enter. Unlike the other Hawksmoors, they've tried to split this between steak and fish, having teamed up with Mitch Tonks of the Seahorse. The ultimate surf 'n' turf?...

For background I have been to the Hawksmoor Seven Dials twice and both times I had the most delicious time so I was very excited to be invited by a colleague to the Air Street branch. This is the newest restaurant of Hawksmoor family in London and is carving a name for itself by having a menu offering both meat and (which the Hawksmoor is famous for) and fish options. Interesting idea considering people will only go to the Hawksmoor if they are carnivorous and want a bloody good steak.The other Hawksmoors I have visited are underground but at Air Street you are welcomed at a ground floor reception but then...

n’t sure if Hawksmoor Air Street would be completely child friendly, as I would say the decor was more of a gentlemen’s club feel, but I thought the booths would be something the two girls would be partial to. So upon my arrival, I had my friend with his two little extremely well behaved girls sitting in a booth having an animated conversation.One of my thoughts in choosing Hawksmoor Air Street is the Special express menu that they offer, and with the Englishness, an interesting experience for the girls who are daughters of a real foodie father, this was their first time in London and the UK...

A bloody cut of meat is perhaps one of the few remaining animal tendencies we indulge in. As insistent as a birthright, the acquisition of said flesh may sometimes seem like the greatest need to fulfil. Cue Hawksmoor: three of its four restaurants focus solely on producing steak, whilst the fourth, Hawksmoor Air Street, shares the menu with creatures of the sea – well worth a visit if reviews are to be believed.The interior of Hawksmoor Air Street is a beautiful thing indeed, from the black marble elliptical staircase, through to the grand art deco chandeliers and leather upholstery in the verdant colour...

The question I ask is do we really need any more steak restaurants in London? I'm not entirely sure, and neither is Hawksmoor by the looks of it. The new Air Street restaurant is serving an equal choice of both meat and fish. And not any old fish, but meaty varieties caught from the shores of the UK and sourced from renowned Brixham Market in Devon. Their meat sourced from the famous Ginger Pig butchers, my favourite butchers in London...

On my first visit to Air Street it took me a while to realise that I was in the same venue that previously housed former ill-fated inhabitant Cocoon. Glossy sci-fiesque plastic furniture in whites and lurid oranges and reds have been replaced by a glorious art deco interior, a dark wood parquet floor, gleaming brass bar and half moon stained glass windows. Reclaimed school bench tables, replete with polished-over compass carved graffiti and aged, spotted mirrors add to the feeling that Air Street has been there, well, simply forever! Despite being prime time West End, this could be a very difficult location from an...

So a few weeks ago, I chose to head to Hawksmoor on Air Street, which is a relatively new branch of this highly touted group of steak houses. This particular branch has a more seafood centric menu, for the benefit of my non-meat eating friend (how we are still friends I do not know), as well as a good selection of the steaks that Hawksmoor is most famous for. The interior of the restaurant is classy and retro, as well as deceptively enormous, although this quickly filled up throughout the course of our meal...

Having subsisted the past few days predominantly on rice krispies during a trip to northern Uganda and South Sudan, I have harped back to a lunch at the new Hawksmoor on Air Street which I had the day before I departed for East Africa.Many people are aware of the Hawksmoor phenomenon. To aficionados, they do the best steak in London. I happen to share this sentiment. The fan base is extensive, evidence provided when the 50% soft opening launch booked out within 8 minutes of the email being circulated to those signed up to the Hawksmoor mailing list. Considering that this was an extensive soft opening and that the...

I always here about the steaks at Hawksmoor even before coming to London.. Finally after many attempts to eat here, I was finally able to… I had high expectations and wow the food went even beyond my expectations! Hawksmoor service is as good as the food and the art decor of the interior gave the place a feel of the 50s and 60s of America...

The group behind the three Hawksmoor steak restaurants (Guildhall, Seven Dials and Spitalfields) have opened their new operation in an Air St site that has traditionally seen restaurants fail and fail quickly. You have to go back to 1995 when Bruno Loubet ran the site as the urbane brasserie L’Odeon for it to have been seen as anything approaching a destination. But the Hawksmoor team have a strong track record and their mini-chain of butch British steakhouses have struck a chord with critics and punters alike...

Whenever I’ve tried to book a table for dinner at Hawksmoor Air Street, and believe me I’ve tried, it’s always been totally booked up. When walking past on a drizzly Saturday lunch time me and a friend popped in to try our luck and got a table no problemo – hoorah!It was a long old walk to the restaurant from the entrance; up the large staircase and through the long bar but it was worth the trek. The dining room was attractive and impressively large but the low ceiling made it feel quite cosy...
