"So what is all the fuss about!? Rib-eye was as tough as old boots. OK it had a good flavour but also it was incorrectly cooked. We asked for medium rare and got something bordering on blue. At least it wasn't overcooked! Service not worth 12.5% but I have had problems trying to argue this one before. The place was buzzing and they were trying to flog is left over beef from lunchtime. Our waiter also admitted there were lots of complaints about the tough beef. We left slightly deflated knowing that I can cook a better steak and chips than they can. On the plus side the marrowbone gravy& the anchovy mayonnaise were great. Bakewell tart was excellent & fresh. Chocolate and caramel tart was all chocolate and not much caramel. We will not be going back."
"Air con not working, service perfunctory. Resting on its laurels?"
"Visited for the Hamburger this time and it probably is the best Hamburger in London. Cooked perfectly; my only reservation which is a continuing one at Hawksmoor is the chips. They are not 5 star."
"The best French Dip sandwich in the UK. Delicious and friendly service in an atmospheric setting."
"The 1st thing I must say is that the staff from the reception through to the waiters are all friendly,knowledgeable and very customer based. The restaurant is big and well designed but very,very noisy.It may be obvious if you look at the website but it is very much a steak based restaurant and although there's other choices they are not numerous BUT if you're into steak of different cuts and sizes, this place is worth a visit.There was an issue with the quality of one of our steaks which was dealt with quietly,professionally and quickly with a replacement and extras arriving without fuss.As to value for money it's not a place you might just turn up to without viewing the web site.Its not high eating but a good steak restaurant that knows who it is aiming for."
"Fabulous chateaubriand. Expensive but worth it. Wine list a bit over-priced."
"Meats are the best, crispy exterior, as rare as you like inside. Buy the pieces of the board for a group - better value !"
"A mainly excellent meal (wonderful potted mackerel, an indulgent sticky toffee pudding) let down only by a too tough steak... But wonderfully unobtrusive service and a calm place in the hurly-burly of Covent Garden. I shall return."
