SquareMeal Review of Goodman City

Silver Award

"Great steak how it should be" is the big selling point at this "reliable New York-inspired steakhouse" – an upmarket City carnivore, where USDA 150-day corn-fed Angus beef takes pride of place. "Absolutely faultless" T-bones, rib-eyes, sirloins and the like are priced by weight or you might choose to luxuriate over a surf 'n' turf of USDA fillet with lobster and king prawns. Upcycled side dishes include mac 'n' cheese with truffle or lobster, and everything from corn to plum tomatoes is given the grill treatment. Starters aside, pickings are thin if you're not here for steak: a burger, a chicken dish, the day's fish, and that covers it. The beef-friendly selection of wines includes Bordeaux from the Enomatic and classy Californians at elevated prices, while knowledgeable service "takes care of everything". The darkly sexy decor looks more cheerful after dark, when red leather and soft lighting create an inviting ambience.

The Best Steak Restaurant in the City
You can't do much wrong with Goodman City, the steak is amazing, the service is consistent and to very high standards, you really feel looked after. The food & drinks from the steak to the wine their pair your meat with is carefully selected and to high quality. You HAVE to visit this restaurant!

Fantastic steak place
I was texting my boyfriend saying 'we have to go here' before I'd even finished my main, I loved it that much. Probably the best steak I've had in London! I had such a good evening out here. The choice of steaks is very extensive and my choice, the fillet, was fantastic, absolutely faultless. I recommend you get the lobster tails too. I sometimes find in steak places that offer lobster that it can be a little secondary to the steak but that wasn't the case here. The sides are divine too, I really recommend the mac and cheese. My dessert, a chocolate and banana mousse was good but nothing to shout about. Who cares? You're there for the meat. Service was friendly and very knowledgeable, our waiter made us feel very welcome and taken care of. Surroundings are very City old school - all intimate, dark and woody, I loved it. There are very few places I think 'I must come back here ASAP' but this is one of the them. Just go!

Reliable steak house
A reliable New-York-inspired steakhouse, with a relatively good value lunch menu option.

The combination of a fantastic selection of beef and the attentive and friendly staff makes this experience an island of excellence in a sea of mediocrity served up in the City

I rate Goodman over many of the other steak restaurants in the City, however this time the fillet steak was not up to scratch. A rare slightly disappointing lunch for once.

City steak on your plate!
Goodman does steak very well. Great for city business lunches and after work meet ups with friends. The question for me is usually Hawksmoor Vs. Goodman in the city. Goodman does not dissapoint… They claim they source the best meat ‘We make life difficult for ourselves, to make sure we bring the best to you’ and I ordered the FILLET (400G) £45 and was very satified with the flavours the steak delivered on. The staff were knowledgeable, my fellow diners looked at ease, the wines to compliment really did and all in all you can't go wrong with Goodman.

If it's meat (and steaks in particular) you're after you will come to the right place. In my view up there with hawksmoor in terms of best steaks in town. Very good service and a buzzing atmosphere at this city outpost
