Steak
Hawksmoor Air Street is a 235 cover seafood and steak restaurant, with the menu equally divided between fish, seafood and the legendary steaks which have made Hawksmoor a firm Londoners' favourite. Ten floor to ceiling stained glass arched windows will form the main feature of the interior, flooding the space with light and allowing for views over Regent Street. Our new bar menu is now available and you can book a table over the phone on 0207 406 3981. Dishes include Langoustine scampi, Ox cheek & roasted bone marrow and house pickles and Bacon Double Cheeseburger. But you don’t need to eat to come to Air Street bar. A stone’s throw from Piccadilly Circus, it’s a perfect spot for some drinks pre or post other West End fun.

We went to have the Sunday roast. 22£ just beef option and definitely we will go back. It was more as having a steak 🥩 with baked potato, gravy, greens and radish sauce than a roast.

i ordered the most delicious Dover sole, it was like butter melting, absolutely outstanding.
What let this dish down is the poor quality crockery - which is more likely to be found in a cheap chicken carvery. Not a the ideal bedfellow for a £38 Dover Sole.

Ordered a delicious bloody mary to start my Sunday roast lunch, after having a lovely conversation with the hostess who is from Valencia Spain and recognized my last name being of Basque origin. The rest of the waitstaff was great too. Unfortunately, this was the second time I had the roast which was ordered and arrived rare but was very tough. The Yorkshire pudding was overcooked and chewy, albeit gummy. Not so nice. They should skip the two pieces of roasted shallots and half a head of roasted garlic and provide a more generous portion of the greens which were very good. The carrots similarly good but the potatoes a bit overdone. Shame because it is a pleasant setting and the food prices fair.

Always happy to eat at Hawksmoor.

The cocktails were fabulous and we went for a Sunday roast, which was good, but I would not have it again.

At the end of the day a Sunday roast is what it is and I will go for the other options on the menu next time.

Dessert was divine!
We shared a rhubarb custard tart and my mother in law had a sticky toffee Sunday which she devoured.

It’s all about the steak at a steak restaurant. Sadly mine was over cooked and flavourless. My fellow diners said that their’s was nice....but I was less than convinced. Very friendly waiter but we had to prompt several times to get all of our side dishes delivered. The wine was nice but expensive...but then this is London. Overall, I’m afraid to say, an underwhelming experience.....which was a real shame.

I only have one complaint. I do not like when a restaurant gives you a limited time at your table. We were about to order dessert, and were told we would have to move to the bar to have it. The service was good, but on the slower side, which was fine - but then there should be no back end to your ability to finish your meal. The food was great, so was the wine, and everything about the experience was good ... except not being able to finish our meal at our table.

Loved the steaks which is the reason to go here for sure, beautiful building (Air St) but all waiting staff wear their own clothes - some in jeans and worn out trainers which I found really odd in a place that is far from cheap - £180 for 2 x 2 courses and 4 drinks.

Das Hawksmoor ander Air Street in London kann man sicher als Gourmetrestaurant für höhere Ansprüche bezeichnen. Es hat eine gute Auswahl für Steak- und Fischliebhaber.
Bei unserem Besuch war es etwas laut (lag aber an einer Gruppe Gäste!) und wir mussten etwas lange auf das Essen warten.

Generally good, but the all of our drinks arrived late. Predinner drinks took 10 minutes after we ordered them. White wine for the appetizer arrived 10 minutes after the appetizer, and the red wine for the steak was also late. This is not satisfactory for a restaurant of your standard.

Lovely waitstaff, accommodating, friendly!

Food was a little hit and miss this night.
Carpaccio was excellent.
Fennel and watercress salad a little watery and not as crisp.
250g ribeye cooked perfectly medium rare as respirated.
Beef dripping fries a little underwhelming.

And the sticky toffee pudding is still the best.

So overall, quite happy.

One note: the main dining room can be almost uncomfortably noisy, On this night, at least two tables of obnoxiously loud diners, including one dropping f-bombs as they vented about their colleagues, bosses, and corporate systems training. Even my AirPods couldn’t block out that conversation!

2.5 hours before food arrived. With two children. One steak was over cooked. 2 were almost raw. For a steak house with premium prices it was a very bad experience

The quality of the food is outstanding but you have to be prepared to wait for the main course. In our visit it was 35 minutes after ordering. We did not have a starter so the wait seemed long but may not have been if we’d ordered starters.

My husband and I had the pre-theatre menu. I wish I hadn't chosen the starter, two Yorkshire puddings with beef. It was bland and the Yorkshires were overdone. We upgraded our mains to fillet steaks, which was a £6 supplement charge. My steak was supposed to be medium but was cooked all the way through. I could only manage half as it was like cardboard. My husbands steak wasn't much better.

Good food, drinks expensive.
Not the most `fancy` of restaurants and staff dressed very casually, not sure if perhaps because it was a Sunday afternoon when we were there.
It was busy and we were asked to leave our table at exactly 1.5hrs from booking time and had desert in the bar area.
Food and friendly staff make up for any shortcomings

Sunday roast Air street was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the Yorkshire rhubarb sundae. The Air Street restaurant is very noisy though and for that reason we much prefer Knightsbridge or Guildhall.

Very good steaks for three of us and my fish (grilled turbot) was delicious. All the sides were very good except the beef dripping fries which were pale and a bit soggy. Cocktails were fantastic - one of us is a picky martini drinker and his was 'perfect'. Not too loud, cosy booth and we could hear each other speak - rare in London restaurants!

Shocking behaviour from some guests and no intervention from the Hawksmoor team... too busy and felt very much like a MacDonald’s at 2am.

Very sad to see a good name such as Hawksmoor come to this standard.

Not my expectation as have been several times in the past at various locations .

Group of 4 had a great dinner at the Air Street location. As expected, the steaks were outstanding. We had filets, sirloin, and a ribeye along with the bone marrow and peppercorn sauces. Sauces were very flavorable without distracting from the meats. Shared sides of mushrooms, caesar salad, creamed spinach and sweet potatoes. All were prepared perfectly. The toffee bread pudding with clotted cream topped off the dinner. Nice selection of wines at reasonable prices. Fun, original cocktails to start off the dinner. A good cross section of customers; couples, business people and some tourists like ourselves. Tab came to about 325 GBP for the 4 of us including drinks.

Not our best visit to Hawksmoor Air Street. T-bone ordered Med-Rare came up Med-well and Ribeye was over Med. No fuss to replace but hate returning food. Replacements, both Ribeyes where cooked exactly as ordered but not the super beefy taste we expected and usually get, perhaps just a bad cut? If we were not regulars to Hawksmoor chain and this was the first time it would not have encouraged a return visit from us, however, we will be back as it is one of our top restaurants.
