"I partly blame myself, I partly blame the descriptions on the menu, but I do very slightly believe the kitchen isn't thinking hard enough about what people want to eat, what they want next to it, and how to make a steak really memorable, rather than a chore." READ REVIEW

" For those that thought diversification might be to Hawksmoor's detriment, Air Street offers a resounding response. This, simply, is a brilliant restaurant." READ REVIEW

"A taut, perfectly seasoned, charcoal-grilled fillet of monkfish is a successful exercise in simplicity. The porterhouse is as good as that previously sampled at other branches; a fine cut of beef, its char perfectly judged." READ REVIEW

"Hawksmoor excels at the basics, a point hammered home by the fact that our meal included a side of spinach so brilliant that we are still talking about it a week after the meal. There is no denying that Hawksmoor’s mantra – “buy the best meat possible and don’t mess it up” – has successfully been transferred to the world of seafood." READ REVIEW

"The result is everything you would want it to be and quite a bit more. There are queenie scallops, lightly battered and deep fried and served with a coarse tartar sauce. This is pimped finger food: the £8 serving is generous, but I could still have devastated another bowl full." READ REVIEW

"...we've never had such good turbot: grilled over charcoal and served on the bone, it was succulent and tasted of both the sea and flame. Brixham crab on toast was another good choice, although the carefully pared flesh was all clinically white; some people prefer the tastier brown meat." READ REVIEW
