A word from Goodman Canary Wharf
Goodman specialises in steak. Our chefs source the best beef from both sides of the Atlantic – from premium USDA corn-fed herds to grass-fed Scottish beef, grain-fed Irish Angus and rare breed Belted Galloway from the Lake Distric in England – to present a unique combination of a traditional British chophouse and classic New York grill. All of our meat is dry aged and cut on-site – which can be seen in our glass-walled dry-ageing room. Couple that with one of London’s largest collections of American red wine, fine single malt whiskeys and a couple of great traditional English beers on tap and you’ve a match made in carnivore heaven.Continued

  • "Goodman CW is definitely back to being my favourite restaurant. The place was running like clockwork and the food spot on. Swift service and perfectly cooked steak and plenty to choose from. Fantastic. Can't wait to go back."

  • "After a really nice previous experience, decided to visit a second time. Unfortunately this time around things weren't as good. After getting to our table quite quickly, it was 30' before someone actually came to take our order. Slow service continued throughout the evening. We ordered the fried mozzarella, which was tasty, and the burgers which wouldn't be considered good if they were served at McDonalds. I made the added mistake of ordering mine medium rare, but got an uncooked patty instead... Worst was that, part-way through the meal, we got an overpoweringly nasty smell as someone seemed to think it's a good idea to take the trash out the front door!"

  • "Having arrived nearly an hour late for my booking, I then asked for two further people to be added, this was done without fuss, the staff were incredibly accommodating and patient. We had a lovely waitress who had only just started working there, she was helpful, knowledgable and obviously loved working at the restaurant. The sharing steak was incredible, black Angus sirloin from Yorkshire, to die for as was the truffled mac cheese and the corn. One of the best overall meals I have had in a long time. Thank you!"

  • "I had the best steak I have ever had in my life and I have been eating steak for 25 years. The service was excellent as well as the staff. Thank you for making it a very special day. I will be going back."

  • "Excellent steak, truffle fries, lobster Mac cheese... Good service and wine choice. Only down sides price and little intimacy."

  • "As a NY-style steakhouse, Goodman hit the nail on the head! Featuring USDA beef from Nebraska was like candy to a baby for these two Americans. The menu was great, our steak spot on, lobster mac & cheese delicious. And fabulous service/hospitality - a rare find in London. We were also given a booth for just the two of us, which again is rare in London. It was the perfect birthday dinner for my husband and we look forward to returning."

  • "Wonderful food, excellent service, very relaxed. Fillet steak was incredible, I will definitely return!"
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "Great USDA beef, quality and cooking option was superb (rare+) Just thought the £8.00 lobster mac&cheese was a bit of a joke... no cheese, 2 tiny bits of what I assume was lobster in Bechamelle (white sauce) , would be surprised if that cost them more than 80p to produce... Service was great otherwise, our waitress knew her stuff and was lovely"

  • "We were a party of 4 adults that all enjoyed the experience of Goodmans nery much. The service was excellent, the food was mouth watering and for what you recieved the price was reasonable. I would recommend Goodmans to anybody."

  • "This restaurant is a great place for a special occasion / treat. Dinner for 2 could be expensive, but the food and wine are amazing, and the service fantastic; you certainly feel like you are getting the attention you deserve, as well as the best choices and advice on what to select."
    dined on 27/02/2014
  • "Great Steak, Brill service and good ambience. That's all you need and they sure got it at Goodman. We had a great anniversary dinner there. Will recommend and will be going back for that corn fed Nebraska ribeye. All 800grams of it :)"
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "Best steak in london! staff friendly and steak is cooked to perfection! :)"
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "Great steak and fantastic selection of wines, including quite a few less frequent and rare to find grapes & brands. The Hungarian red complements the cornfed steak fillet and the meat is always cooked to perfection and as requested. Upon your first visit, the presentation with the meat board is equally impressive. Staff are always friendly, polite, helpful without being intrusive or constantly in your face. Excellent experience every time I have dined there (so we keep coming back)."

  • "I ate at Goodmans for the first time this week. The food was delicious - probably one of the best steaks I've ever eaten. Unfortunately the same can not be said about the service. Firstly we arrived 30 minutes early so were told to wait at the bar. There was no space at the bar for us to wait, so we had to leave and come back. Then when it came to the meal, we asked for a jug of tap water, extra sauces and the dessert menu. On all 3 occsssions this got forgotten and we'd have to ask a second time. I found this very poor considering it was such basic requests that repeatedly got ignored. Overall I loved the food and would go again in hope the waiter was not being complacent and just having a bad day."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "This was not my first visit to Goodmans and certainly won't be my last. The food was amazing, staff were attentive and friendly, but not over baring. Perfect balance of good food and wine."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "Don't often feel moved to write reviews, but the bone-on corn-fed rib-eye from Nebraska I shared for weekday dinner with a friend, was quite possibly the best steak I've ever eaten - very tender, perfect medium rare, amazing flavour. Staff were friendly, attentive, efficient as well. Very enjoyable dinner."
    dined on 06/03/2014
  • "This was my firs time at Goodmans and I must say that it lived up to its name. The food was exceptional and the staff were so helpful and friendly. Thank you for a great experience."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "Very knowledgable and attentive staff, but not over the top! Great variety and choice of meat, all sides and steaks cooked to perfection."

  • "It was mine and my partners 7th time at a Goodman restaurant and we are never dissapointed, they do the best steak in London that's why we always go there when we visit London."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "I didn't know what to order because I was confused with the menu, and so I asked the waitress what would she recommend. She presented samples of the steaks in their raw state, New York style and after that I started to understand the procedure. Finally we ordered a mix of T-Bone and fillet, 800 grams, to share, accompanied well with a bottle of Argentinean red wine of course, from Mendoza. I am originally from South America and for me eat a good steak is fundamental in terms of living a good life. Goodman is a proper American steakhouse - far away the best cost-value place in London."
    dined on 05/03/2014
  • "Had a family celebratory meal here. Booked rather than in their other 2 restaurants in London as the others were booked. was therefore a little worried but need not have been. From the moment we arrived our waitress made us feel very welcome and special. She was attentive at all times and helped and advised us on the choice of steaks. We were seated in a comfortable window booth, just right for the occasion. Food came out quick and hot and was delicious. Wine was quite expensive, so we went for the cheapest however this was good. We ordered desserts which were reasonably priced, they arrived with candles, (unrequested) we're delicious and we were not charged on the final bill! we were then taken on a tour of the kitchen and meat store, FAB!"
    dined on 04/03/2014
  • "Took a client to this restaurant and from the moment we arrived the service was excellent. we ordered off the specials board and the steak was excellent and perfectly cooked. i would not hesitate to go back there with another client or privately"
    dined on 04/03/2014
  • "Yet again another good meal here. Staff are professional and make a very good experience."
    dined on 26/02/2014
  • "If you are looking for a steak, look no further than Goodmans. There is a good range of cuts sourced from different regions and you won't leave hungry. You get what you pay for, so it is not cheap, but the ambience and food quality cannot be faulted. I would recommend above other brand names such as Gaucho etc. If you haven't tried it, you should."
    dined on 24/02/2014
  • "Great selection of steaks. Great selection of wines. Fillet steak was excellent. In escence great food and great service."

  • "So glad to have had the chance to come back to Goodman Canary Wharf! They've always known how to look after us! Thanks to all - it was a pleasure to see everyone again. If you haven't been - you're missing out!"
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "The staff here are pleasant and know what they are talking about. They and selected our wines for us. Steaks were explained in depth as they have a wide variety. I had a prime rib eye from the USA was £60 for 750g which I thought a bit steep but it is the best steak I've had. Meal came with three sauces: pepper, Stilton and bernaise, all very good. Sides are £5 each but more than enough to share. I had an Irish coffee at the end of my meal and because they didn't have the spirit I wanted in my meal they allowed me to sample another before purchase. Ambiance is nice with light music in the background looking over the water. I've been other top steak restsurants in London this one was more expensive but is the best so far in my opinion."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "We were celebrating our daughters 25th Birthday and also our Nieces forth coming wedding. The waitress, who's name i think was Panka was fantastic, very helpful, polite and and good attitude. Serviced with a smile. Gave us great service and also ideas as we were a large group, on what to order. The Steaks were to die for and the ladies had the lobster as well as steak. Which were serviced to them in portions and the lobster was taken out of the shell so they could eat it a lot easier. The best way to describe Goodman is a slightly up market version of Burger & Lobster & Hawksmoor combined. Would recommend it for that special occasion but not a cheap night out. Mind you we had Champagne, so that did bring the bill up. ."

  • "Waiter was very knowledgable and helpful, suggested one of the best red wines and I have ever had. Great food and Great atmosphere"

  • "Myself and my boyfriend visited Goodmans for his 28th birthday meal. Although it wasn't as romantic as expected, it didn't ruin our night. The food was absolutely outstanding and every member of staff was so helpful and lovely. They couldn't help us anymore. They also gave us a dessert on the house after singing happy birthday to my boyfriend. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone if you want a superb meal."
    dined on 08/02/2014
  • "I'm a creature of habit and tend to go for the lobster roll or burger at lunch (both of which are awesome), but today tried the meat of the day, a 400g bone in sirloin. This was a great choice - quick to arrive, perfectly cooked, and while hardly a light lunch did allow my to at least get some work done afterwards. I know i will go back..."
    dined on 06/02/2014
  • "Overall I thought it was an enjoyable experience, however the food was not quite as good as the food I had at the Goodman Mayfair restaurant. The steak and red wine were great and the sides were good. I thought the bearnaise sauce could've been better and I was disappointed with the crab starter as there wasn't much meat to it - I would've preferred to have had a scallop starter, which can be ordered at the city and Mayfair goodman restaurants, but for some reason isn't available at the Canary Wharf one. Saying that the staff made sure our time there was as enjoyable as possible and an enjoyable evening was had. The bar and decor was also enjoyed."
    dined on 08/02/2014
  • "Beautiful food & amazing service. Would definitely come back!"
    dined on 01/02/2014
  • "Had a brilliant time as usual. The service was great with helpful/informative, friendly and fun staff including explaining the cuts to people that weren't sure. The drinks were good, again with the staff having a decent knowledge of what they sell. Food was brilliant, excellent sides with a great selection of cuts and feeds at not extortionate prices. Food was cooked well and was enjoyed by all. I'd always recommend Goodman to friends if they like steak as it's a great place to go for an excellent meal."
    dined on 01/02/2014
  • "I enjoyed the stakes. Excellent but enormous. 750g for 2 and it was nearly impossible to finish. If you have a large appetite, this is the place for you. The food was expensive but I would definitely go there for a special occasion. It had all the trimmings for service etc."
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "The Lobster Roll has become a lunchtime staple for the days when you just deserve something special, and it doesnt dissapoint. Sure, its a £22 sandwich but its delicious decadence is well worth it. Recommended."
    dined on 24/01/2014
  • "Great food in pleasant surroundings. Friendly staff. What more could you want."
    dined on 21/01/2014
