SquareMeal Review of Hawksmoor Spitalfields

CLOSES FOR A MONTH-LONG REFURBISHMENT ON 1 JANUARY 2018

Discreetly nestled away in Spitalfields, the original branch of the seemingly unstoppable Hawksmoor chain has a definite old-school speakeasy vibe, which is further enhanced by the super-cool den-like bar downstairs (a must-visit). “Unbeatable steak in London” just about sums it up, and readers confirm that the well-hung, well-aged British beef “never disappoints”. Although the steaks themselves are massive, we suggest an opener of say, Brixham crab on toast, before hitting the serious stuff – perhaps share a mighty rib-eye with sides of triple-cooked chips, creamed spinach and Stilton hollandaise (although some say the mac ‘n’ cheese is “irresistible”). If you have any room left for dessert, don’t skip the rich sticky toffee pudding with clotted cream. A strong selection of wines is available by the glass, the cocktails are unfailingly innovative and prices are reasonable for the area too. In short, a cracking package that delivers on food, drinks, service and atmosphere.

A repeat visit to Hawksmoor fulfilled our expectations. Our server ‘ Ulisses’ was charming, attentive and entertaining. Let's be honest this isn't the cheapest lunch around, but hey it was a Birthday so we didn't stint. lobster starter had a smokey BBQ edge and was moist and delicious. We all ordered steaks( various cuts) . Each delivered promptly and cooked as requested. excellent Rioja and superb atmosphere. Having dined at several of the Hawksmoor chain this is our absolute favourite.

My friend did not only book my birthday dinner at Hawksmoor but also planned a surprise party and the people at Hawksmoor made it very special. From the lovely waitress to the excellent food, it was a night to remember and I do believe that we closed the bar.

Having rocked up to Hawksmoor Spitalfields (with Goodman's, this is my joint first in the “best ever steakhouse in London”-award) with a colleague, we had a phenomenal T-bone and a very decent bottle of Rioja. Service was excellent, everything tasted great and was executed flawlessly and I cant wait to go back. We did have a bit of fun in the place drinks-wise, but even then the bill was a bit of a sobering experience. It was self-inflicted, so hard to argue with and worth it anyway. Go there now, order half a cow and be happy!

Fantastic steak, great staff, good wine list. I love Hawksmoor. Steaks at Goodman are as good, but Hawksmoor has much nicer atmosphere – cool, but without trying to be. Side dishes are great, too, as are the ice creams: cornflake and popcorn both delicious. Best bet is to go in bigger group (3-4 minimum), then order few different cuts – love the way they're presented, too, for everyone to dig in and share.

I've been wanting to come here for a while now as i have heard good review after good review, but i didn't come here for the steak, oh no no no the burger was at the top of my want list. The bacon cheese burger arrived on our table and i was like a kid in a candy store, the bun was fluffy and light, the meat tender and juicy, each bite was meet with a groan , it was food porn, the triple cooked chips were really nice to, and went well with the Hawksmoor homemade ketchup. The wife had the beef roast and she claimed it was the best roast dinner she has ever had, and that's saying a lot. So onto the staff, the staff were all very friendly and looked after us pretty well, so all in all our Hawksmoor experience was a good one.

A must for any serious carnivore! Simply the best cooked steak in town – just make sure you get there early enough before the chalk board gets wiped and that juicy Porterhouse is gone forever! Plus, the cocktails are simply amazing…particularly if ‘Shaky’ Pete is in residence. This is a man that can make a serious cocktail. This is THE place to take a lover of meat! Accept no substitutions and just go and have a pre-dinner cocktail, order a Porterhouse (medium-rare) and feel the smile spread across your face in satisfaction!
