They are known for steak and rightly so. I would recommend ordering from the chalkboard, as i find the meat more flavoursome. We had the porterhouse steak and it was supertasty meat. No need to have sauce with it. Just some sides and you are set. The service was friendly and efficient. Would go there again.

Hawksmoor is definitely a very good restaurant. The menu card and the wine list are both enchanting and the both the kitchen and the waiters deliver. The place is very noisy but in a good way (good mood) and the location is just in the very popular Spitalfields-Shoreditch area. Only thing on the minus side is the price - it's... More

5 of us went for family birthday. Nice setting if busy. Lack of soft furnishings make it slightly noisy. Service excellent - waitress really understood the wine list. Steaks spot on if expensive - slightly object to paying extra for veg when steaks £75+. Starters and desserts good too. Wines good and not exorbitant. 3 courses for 5 of us... More

A bit quiet when we were there, but nice relaxed decor and really helpful friendly staff. Visited having been to the one in Manchester several times. Can be relied on for excellent service and excellent quality food.

I went with friends one evening for dinner and the waiter was great, funny and very helpful. I had the marrow bone starter which was great. Then for main course we shared a steak between four of us and lots of side dishes. The desserts were to die for. I will be going back. Looking forward to my next trip... More

My friends and I came here for a joint birthday lunch and we were treated so well. The food was amazing, tender and full of flavour. In addition; our waitress was wonderful and knew how to interact with the customers she was catering to. We were more than happy to give her a £30 tip and will be more than... More

I would recommend if you are a fan of steak (or even if you're not!) The steak is really good and I'm not a big meat eater. It's a nice restaurant, but nothing particularly special. The service is okay. It's expensive, but worth it. One thing I must say is as we made a reservation, we received a follow up... More

I took my parents here for lunch on Easter Sunday. I'd been to another branch 5 years ago but was left wondering why I've not been back in between. The atmosphere was 'buzzy' - just the right side of noisy - without being rowdy or unpleasant. We all had the roast, which was excellent. The meat was tender, the roast... More

Expensive! My wife steak was OK but mine had a line of sinew running through it and when I pointed the out that this part was inedible, the waiter said it was part of the "flavour". Fat may add to the flavour but sinew does not, and as I was paying over £30 for the steak I felt that it... More

We started with insanely good Cocktails in the bar downstairs...served by Nic 'The Greek'. He was a master of his craft and the friendliest barman we've ever met! Followed by one of the best meals we've ever had with matching service to boot. 5 stars all round. Get yourselves there.

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
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.
