This has to be the worst steak restaurant I've been in for a long time. Not only did the waitress take my half finished drink but the waiter went and got it back 5 minutes later without the lime and straw (I wasn't even sure it was my drink)...... obviously I didn't drink it and decided that enough was enough...

Hawksmoor is borne as a steakhouse but still I appreciate its kinda elegant twist. Howevver the one is Spitafields is simply a bar where they serve good cocktails and steaks..not as good as the others in my opinion

Visited as part of a work group of 15. We all had the rump steak which were all excellent and cooked perfectly as requested, the chips and other side dishes were also very good. Service was friendly and professional. I intend to visit again with a less rowdy party and take time to appreciate the food and atmosphere

Starters ok. Rib eye and sirloin were unimpressive. Price with 3 bottles of water to drink plus 3 sides and no dessert was 130pounds. Redeemed a bit by excellent service.

I booked this restaurant for my boyfriends birthday and it didn't disappoint. I called them to advise it was his birthday and asked if they had a nicer table that we could have, they sat us in a corner table that had more room than the others. The service was great and the food was amazing. It's quite expensive but... More

Visited here on 1st January 2017 for dinner having spent the New Year away from home and booked this restaurant based on TA reviews and on the proximity to our hotel. The visit did not get off to a particularly good start since the greeting from the two ladies at front of house was well below par; not particularly welcoming... More

Been to a fair number of steakhouses in London, but this one continually tops the lot - beautiful steak, perfectly cooked with a perfect selection of sides too. Great wines and brilliant cocktails, all served by great staff who are knowledgable and friendly, without a hint of superiority (as I tend to find in some other places). This must be... More

Description
This Spitalfields steakhouse has wooed much of London since opening in 2006; word-of-blog has only served to create an even bigger buzz around the restaurant and its food. A case of the emperor's new clothes? We think no.' Time Out

Spitalfields was our first restaurant, and the general view is that it is where the 'Hawksmoor spirit' is best embodied - many of the staff have worked there for years and would never consider elsewhere. Great steaks, great drinks and an amazing atmosphere, full of people who desperately care whether you enjoy your evening.

We are located just down the road from our namesake Nicholas Hawksmoor's Christ Church Spitalfields and 10 minutes walk from Liverpool Street, Old Street and Aldgate stations.

It can accommodate 115 people for exclusive hire and the back section of the restaurant is ideal for groups of up to 55. The restaurant can be hired exclusively for a meat-fuelled party, corporate function and wedding receptions.

For information on private hire and events, please contact our events department.

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighbourhood Profile
Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
