My first time at Hawksmoor Spitafields, I've been to Seven Dials a few times, and the standard of lunch, and food generally, remains the same - excellent. Could not fault the food or the service. We sat in the windows which was great, not sure...More

The beef was pink and cooked to perfection, roast potatoes were crisp but fluffy in the middle, the Yorkshire pudding was superb, the gravy fantastic and the carrots, cabbage and roasted garlic complemented it perfectly. If I add sex on legs for dessert i.e. sticky...More

This review is long overdue, as Hawksmoor is invariably my first port of call in central London when I fancy a steak and red wine dinner and it has yet to let me down. I like the busy atmosphere at Spitalfields, although it might not...More

I love Hawksmoor and the Spitalfields restaurant is lovely. Great service, amazing steak, the best Sunday dinner and delicious cocktails. Dessert is also a must if you can squeeze it in!

Booked due to recommendations from friends. They must have had a totally different experience or just have low expectations as this is one overpriced, underwhelming restaurant. The starter and steak was nice but the chips tasted like McCains oven chips. Buttered greens were watery cabbage...More

Great experience overall but.... The steaks were delicious and the lobster starter lovely. However, my rump steak was massively fatty, something I've never experienced before. The waitress did offer to replace it after seeing it with her own eyes but it was too late at...More

Went here with colleagues after work , food is great but it is pricey. Wouldn't eat here often as don't think it is worth the price but I would go again.

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.

I usually tube and walkover, as the restaurant is on a fairly busy street. I have seen parking on adjacent streets, but it's not close. I didn't see any special arrangements for disabled parking.

I was there in the summer and there were lots of families sitting outside and it worked out about £40 per person for their Sunday roast sharing 2 puds between 4 of us.

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.
