Visited twice in the last few months, it's that good! First time we visited for dinner with a group of friends. Dishes ordered included entrees potted beef, mussels, crab toast; mains of rib eye and sirloin steak; and sides of mac and cheese, thrice cooked chips, and beef dripping chips. Incredible, and the best steak I've had in years. Cooked... More

Took my mum here for a birthday dinner yesterday. The food was fabulous, we had meat and seafood and both were exceptional. The service was pretty much faultless. The place has a real buzz and low ceilings and therefore the noise level can be deafening.

Great location, arrived about 12:00 for reserved table. Not too busy but buzz built across the lunch hour yet service was impeccable. The Dover Sole Meunière was outstanding. Did not sample the wine card this trip but with such a fantastic atmosphere will return.

I booked Hawksmoor for 4 people for this past Friday. I was very much looking forward to the booking, considering it is often mentioned as the best steak restaurant in London. I booked in August, 3 months in advance, to make sure that there will be a good table as my parents were visiting from our town. Upon arrival the... More

I have enjoyed pretty much everything the Hawksmooor chain has delivered so far, and this was my first visit to Air Street. Some similarities to the others, but with a steer towards seafood, a nod to the building's past. It was the first time I have not eaten any meat at Hawksmoor. The Turbot shoulder was magnificent, a fine cut,... More

We went for Sunday roast that we were both looking forward to, On arriving, the place was packed and noisy. Our roasts took 30 mins to cook. When arriving, the meat tasted burnt and the yorkshire pudding was too dry. Such a shame, but you can not win them all. Back to the steaks which are amazing !

Can we have fries with our steak? No, the gas is off. You ordered medium steak but we have given you rare. Then we noticed that other diners had been given fries! Can we have mash without butter. No it has already been made up. Waiter poured different wines into half filled glasses. Waiter poured mustard onto guests sleeve. I... More

We came off the street on Friday 25 Nov and were warmly greeted and seated at 5pm. Having just placed our order, there was a blackout and we were left in candle light with an open bottle of wine. Our waiter, Maks, and the manager, Robbie, served us ample quantities of bread to go with the wine and even joined... More

Eating at Hawksmoor is a joy, simple British fare well prepared in a relaxed environment. It's an absolute must for Sunday lunch when in the capital.

Description
'If a city gets the restaurants is deserves then London has clearly been a very good girl of late. [Hawksmoor Air Street] is everything you woud want it to be and quite a bit more.' Jay Rayner, Observer

Located in an Art Deco room overlooking Regent Street, the menu at Hawksmoor Air Street is equally-weighted between steak and seafood. We've teamed up with Mitch Tonks, the chef/owner of one of the best seafood restaurants in the country, to mastermind the fish side of things, not least by ensuring that we receive the freshest produce possible straight from Brixham market in Devon. Like our steaks, most of the seafood is simply cooked over real charcoal. A steakhouse serving the best fish in London? That's our aim. Close to the theatres of the West-End, we have an Express Menu that's perfect for lunch, pre-theatre and post-theatre dinners. The entrance to the restaurant is on the short stretch of Air Street between Piccadilly and Regent Street.

Air Street is the perfect space for a wide range of events including award ceremonies, film premiere parties and cocktail receptions. It can accommodate up to 235 people in the restaurant and 70 in the bar.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
