Goodman Canary Wharf
Best steak in townNothing compares to Goodman's. Great quality of food, amazing variety, extremely friendly staff and a fantastic location. Highly recommendable.20/05/2013 00:00:00Goodmans RestaurantOutstanding service and food perfect for a business dinner13/05/2013 00:00:00great meal, food delicious,great meal, food delicious, staff very attentive and helpful,03/05/2013 00:00:00Fantastic steakMy wife and I had a fantastic meal at Goodmans recently. The staff were all very friendly and incredibly knowledgable when it came to describing the various cuts of beef, etc. my wife had a lovely fillet and I went for a 600g bone in rib-eye, which in hindsight was enough to feed two, but I still managed to polish it off. We both like our steak medium rare and these were cooked to perfection. the triple cooked chips were fantastic, the best my wife has ever had. We shared a New York style cheese-cake as dessert, which again was first class. The restaurant is very chilled out considering its location, was for me a much added bonus. This has now given me a major dilemma, as I love the Hawksmoor in Covent Garden.03/05/2013 00:00:00Always a pleasureI took my date to Goomans after a long day at work and by the end of the evening all the troubles of the week were forgotten! We shared the 900gr Irish Porterhouse with sides of mac&cheese, corn and spinach (accompanied with Journey's End South African red). The steak was absolutely exquisite - as good as they come with the fillet side melting on your tongue.
After the meal. I asked the waiter to show us into the meet room which he gladly agreed to and gave us an overview of all the key concepts! We got the matching wine for our desert for free and as a regular diner I also got 10 quid off the final bill.
The only reason why I dont eat there every week is because even with discounts you are still looking at 75 ppp minimum.26/04/2013 00:00:00One to re visit!Found this place on top table and the reviews were good so decided to locate and try. Easy to find and good location, other then parking (none). Pleasant staff throughout. Large choice off wines and off course great steaks. Matching another house I use beginning with G---ho's. will re visit.19/04/2013 00:00:00Lovely steakIt was my first time to have dinner in goodman. It is really nice and delicious.12/04/2013 00:00:00FantasticThis is my second time to the Wharf Goodmans and i think it's excellent. the service is great, the ambiece is great. no pressure on to leave and hte food is excellent! i would defintely go back and recommend to others. it is expensive but then so are all steak restaurants!10/04/2013 00:00:00Best steak in londonThe best steak I have had in london. Good quility of steak. Service is fantastic！ The waiter knows us first time come here, and gives us all kinds of sauce to try!!!09/04/2013 00:00:00Not cheap but worth itA great selection of meat was on offer - as one might expect - although even its Canary Wharf location does not justify £110+ for the Chateaubriand..... Our server, Greg, was outstanding and should be promoted / snapped up by another restaurant immediately!09/04/2013 00:00:00Service at the highest levelBirthday dinner. My steak was a little dry, it was changed without fuss, and a new one arrived with a lobster tail, additional vegtables and perfect service. They not only took the steak off the bill but also my birthday dessert. This is a classy restaurant, with excellent service and it was an outstanding pleasure to eat out there on Saturday night.
Everything was perfect and frankly i was glad the steak wasnt perfect the first time, as it allowed them to really show their understanding of service and quality. Outstanding.06/04/2013 00:00:00Steak-a-liciousBooked in toptable's 'great tables for 2' and it was a great place where the steak was great, service prompt and friendly and spent a relaxed evening enjoying a good meal in a nice place.
Goodman definitely know how to source their meat and staff are patient and helpful in explaining what's available and even calculate the weight if the bone if that's what's you're after.
Wine selection is decent but the wine list could do with a bit more work. The offering was good but could be more suitable to the menu on offer with better pricing.
Overall, a definate return planned soon and would recommend to anyone going for a decent quality steak.05/04/2013 00:00:00Best Steak in TownAfter being very disappointed the last time, the Goodman team really outdid themselves.
We had the best possible Steaks and even got a tour of the meat locker.
(C:28/03/2013 00:00:00Very nearly the best steak ever!I'm not sure it was the best steak we have ever had, that prize goes to a restaurant in Buenos Aires, but it was very close. A huge selection of different cuts and providers presented in an expert but informal manner by the excellent staff. This was accompanied by a wide ranging wine list. Not for vegetarians.22/03/2013 00:00:00Superb steakHave heard many good things about Goodman before, finally got around to trying it and was not disappointed in the slightest. The steaks were sensational, cooked as ordered and served in a very timely manner. The chips (including truffle chips) were also very good. Overall I feel this has been the best steak meal I've had yet in London (and I've been to quite a few of the big names!)16/03/2013 00:00:00For cow lovers!!!!My friend and I love steak and now we've found steak heaven, but be prepared to splurge!14/03/2013 00:00:00We tried almost all the bestWe tried almost all the best steak restaurants in London including Hawksmoor and Hix.
I think Goodman comes at the top for the variety and quality of meat. Hawksmoor's ambient may be posher but at the end of the day it's down to the meat.09/03/2013 00:00:00Great nightThoroughly enjoyed my night at Goodman. Great food, lovely staff...what more could you want!09/03/2013 00:00:00VeggietalesAmazing place to eat specially if you are a vegetarian, the choice is huge!07/03/2013 00:00:00Great, real, steakhouseI'm a spoilt New Yorker living in London. I missed the truly great New York steakhouse scene until I found Goodman. Perfect for business or special family/friends gatherings. Even my vegetarian wife loves it (she gets a double portion of the truffle macaroni cheese as her main)! The friendly, attentive staff will give you ample care without being intrusive or stuffy.05/03/2013 00:00:00OUR WEEKEND AWAYI wanted a nice restaurant for a special person in my life on her 1st visit to London & i have got to say the management,staff & the food were all fantastic.
Can't wait for our next visit.02/03/2013 00:00:00Excellent service and greatExcellent service and great wine accompined by a delicous fillet. Perfect evening - we defenitely go back to Goodman Canary Wharf.02/03/2013 00:00:00No doubt the best steaks inNo doubt the best steaks in London. I have Been to Goodman 4 times (mainly the Mayfair one) over the past 3 months and the steaks are so consistently good. It is cooked in a way no home equipment can manage. My Gaggenau equipment has also surrendered! A different league from Gaucho (I can snobbishly say I trump Gaucho with my eyes shut :). Better than Hawksmoor but Hawksmoor has a more sophisticated atmosphere. If you are into chips, this beats Hawksmoor too. Try the Truffle chips. Just love the rare breed cattle you get here. I recommend the Belted Galloway, Longhorn not too bad too. Check before as they don't always have this. I love it so much I pre booked for the next few months as it is always full up on Saturdays for dinner!02/03/2013 00:00:00Great evening, book today!!The ambience, the staff and most of all, the food was amazing, can't wait to go back in the summer and hopefully be able to sit outside!!!23/02/2013 00:00:00Outstanding steak and great meal!!!The staff were very welcoming and very knowledgable about their food. They took the time to explain the types of steak available and were not trying to push us to order the most expensive.
When the meal arrived, it was of the highest quality from starter (prime ribs) to desert ( ginger and peach crumble).
Then the pier de résistance was the staff making the night special for my partner by bringing out a cake with a candle on it, especially after I had forgotten the cake, so they got me out of the dog house.
Superb place and worth every penny!!! Must try the mac and cheese? Both types.23/02/2013 00:00:00Fantastic birthday celebrationsGreat place, fantastic service, food was absolutely fantastic...what every meat lover needs22/02/2013 00:00:00Comes at a price for a steak,Comes at a price for a steak, but a price worth paying. Best steaks I've had in London, and great staff18/02/2013 00:00:00Valentines day mealBook Goodman with no problem. Food and service was amazing. My partner and I will be definitely going back soon. I've had a few steaks from different restaurants but this was so far the best. I would say that it's expensive, but it's worth it14/02/2013 00:00:00Really chuffed by the staffReally chuffed by the staff and the service we received at the Canary Wharf branch of Goodmans...
It means we have a great time for our Valentine!
Thanks14/02/2013 00:00:00Brilliant steaks!Went here with my fiance for a Valentines meal as we both like steak houses and have tried a few other places and had never been to Goodmans. We arrived about 20minutes earlier than our table time (as we weren't entirely sure where it was) and were seated straight away and the waiter went through the different meats and cuts on the blackboard giving us the details and the differences to each. He then gave us enough time to select our meat and took the remainder of the order and also gave us a run through of the wine menu. The food was amazing and the steaks especially were perfectly cooked and we are definitely thinking about going back14/02/2013 00:00:00Must try for steak loversFor steak lovers, Goodman offers a variety of beef and cuts and the steaks are very nicely cooked.
The service there was very good, everyone was very friendly.
We didn't try the starters so can't really rate on those.
I guess the only downside is (just like many other steakhouse/ restaurants), their non-steak main course option seems to be quite limited.
Overall it was definitely a great experience.14/02/2013 00:00:00Birthday treat on Valentine's dayWent to Goodman on Valentine's Day which is also my boyfriend's birthday. I notified them in advance and they kindly put up some balloons for the birthday boy. We ordered a cocktail each at the bar on arrival and they were absolutely wonderful - my boyfriend's Mojito was the "best he'd tasted". The menu is extensive, I wanted every starter and, although I'm pescatarian, struggled to decide what to have (not suitable for vegetarians mind you but you wouldn't expect a steakhouse to be). My boyfriend had a huge steak and loved it, I ordered far too much and was defeated but every bite was wonderful. Finally with desert they added a Happy Birthday message and candle to my boyfriend's sundae. Service and attention to detail was outstanding!14/02/2013 00:00:00Excellent steaksProbably the best steak I've had in the UK (I shared the Nebraskan Porterhouse).
If you get a black cab, it was be off grid as far as the 'knowledge' is concerned for us. Remember access is through the shops on foot.
A word on price. It came to approx £100/head for us, including wine.
Strong recommend if you want an excellent steak. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.13/02/2013 00:00:00Steakout!I had tempura prawns to start, which were superb - tasty & cooked to perfection. I then had the New York sirloin, which is one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. The whole experience was fantastic, with very good service from a knowledgable waiter who was able to explain the meat cuts and difference between various origins of the beef. Portion sizes are very generous. It is relatively expensive, but well worth it.12/02/2013 00:00:00One of the bestI have been to many Steak houses but for me Goodmans is up there with the best. Excellent selection of meat and an extensive wine list combined with well informed and friendly staff makes this dining experience worth every penny.09/02/2013 00:00:00Amazing steakAlways been a Gaucho person but this tops it. 400g goodman ribeye was superb.09/02/2013 00:00:00HARD TO FIND BUT WORTHWHILEFriendly reception, comfortable dining rooms, modern bar counter and wide location.
Accurate and polite service, the quality of the food is really high : great meat dishes & vegetables ... even the smashed potatoes had a tasty flavour !
I have already recommended it to my Italian friends.09/02/2013 00:00:00FabulousWe had a great evening here for my husband's birthday. Service was good and staff were informative and friendly. The steak was amazing, no two ways about it. Truffle chips were also divine as reported by other diners. Would thoroughly recommend, although take deep pockets.08/02/2013 00:00:00Great steaks & Great winesHaving tried several restaurants and steak houses in the area Goodmans stands above them all. From the welcome on arrival, to the friendliness of the bar and restaurant staff, it really is one of the best "New York" styled steak houses around. Sit at the bar and try the variety of cocktails available, and eat there if preferable. (You have to try the home made Bloody Mary,) Then indulge in the vast array of wines available. Choose wisely though, as they don,t come cheap. The different steaks and their cuts are presented and explained in detail by a well drilled waiting staff, and cooked to perfection. Booking advisable on the evenings, especially as word gets round...04/02/2013 00:00:00We love GoodmansWe love Goodmans because the food is fantastic and the service is excellent. You can never go wrong with anything you order there.31/01/2013 16:00:00Great steaksWe went for a date night and ended up pleasantly surprised with the high overall quality of the steaks and service.25/01/2013 16:00:00GoodmanHad a fabulous time at Goodman. The staff were attentive without being overbearing, friendly without being patronising or fake and very knowledgeable. The steak is amazing (and at the prices they charge, should be!) but the sides really lift the menu and make it extra special. Can highly recommend the lobster mac & cheese, truffled mac & cheese and truffle chips in particular. Now just need to go back to experience the other side dishes and dessert menu which we were too full to even look at! Will be going back as soon as the diet permits :)16/01/2013 16:00:00Good food, good serviceThe service was good and the food very nice. Recommended.14/01/2013 16:00:00Goodman @ Canary WharfAfter research Goodman came up often, so we booked. Service was excellent - staff are well-informed about the cuts of meat and the heritage, and forthcoming and attentive without being in your face :)
We shared a Herefordshire bone-in rib-eye + ordered two lobster tails, mash with chives and of green beans. We've eaten great steaks around the world but this was by far the best we'd both eaten. Deep, rich, beautifully cooked piece of meat - as it happens, my partner likes it well-done (heathen :) and I like it medium-rare, but it wasn't a problem - when it came (you can order it pre-sliced for ease of sharing) it was too rare for Dan but the waiter didn't hesitate, he sent half back for more cooking. Going back for Valentine's!30/12/2012 16:00:00What a steak!!The title should be enough. The steak was brilliant, cooked to perfection. The service was very friendly and helpful, always smiling and ready to help. Thank you for a wonderful evening Goodman and to think you are only a five minutes walk from my office. I will be visiting again.28/12/2012 16:00:00All round great Steak expeirenceExtremely friendly and knowledgeable staff, great food, great evening28/12/2012 16:00:00Christmas treatWe went to Goodman in Canary Wharf for a Christmas treat and wow was it a treat.

Always good service and ambience03/12/2012 00:00:00Great food and ServiceWe have been to Goodman's many times and it never fails to impress.
