Winner of Time Out’s Best New Restaurant award in 2011, the discreet-fronted basement location is elevated to a high-end destination with a characterful interior of reclaimed materials and the fan-boys’ zeal for premium meats and other taste sensations…

The beef came on an iron trivet. It was adequate rather than generous. It had been sliced, and contained large, pale jelly gobs of adipose fat. It was undercooked for this particular cut. I’d left the timing up to the kitchen. The meat had the texture of fat-slag thigh…

The food is everything a carnivore might hope for. My favorite dishes come from the bar menu: the unlikely hit of the kimchi burger — Korean pickled cabbage atop a cheeseburger — and the warm lobster roll…

The food was terrific. Flawless of its kind. To start we had brilliant prawn cocktail and two great canoes of split front cow leg full of marrow, roasted in the “shell” with onions, and just as sweet and rich and fatty (…). And then great, great steak. Best you’ll find anywhere…

As for the cocktails, they’re brilliant. The list itself is a masterpiece, scholarly and genuinely interesting about the history of its drinks – it may well be the first cocktail list in the world that makes you feel more intelligent for having read it…

A dramatic staircase leads down into a dark bar, as louche as a Prohibition-era speakeasy, with a cocktail menu to match. The vast dining room is similarly atmospheric. (…) This converted brewery has already acquired the patina of use, with pleasure encoded in its brick walls…

The problem with steaks, though, is that after the first blast, there’s just more of the same, until you’re sated. It’s animal appetite it serves, not gastronomy. But for that, Hawksmoor sure hits the spot. What you can get here is better meat (…) cooked on a much fierier grill than you’re likely to use yourself…

With its masculine wood-panelled bar, discreet Covent Garden entrance and butch-and-bustling subterranean dining area, it really reminds me of Joe Allen in the days when it was the place to see and be seen.(…) Hawksmoor Seven Dials is that rarest of things: an instant classic…

The steak was a glorious hunk of drippingly pink, charcoaly flesh – with none of that obnoxious chewiness that comes from poorly integrated fat and bad cuts. I’m not sure I’ve tasted anything better – even in the US…

The burger features a brioche bap supplied from the very good St John bakery, beef with a little bone marrow, and traditional topping of lettuce, cheese, onion and tomato. The meat had good taste and a hint of charcoal from the grill…
