Latest critic review: July 21, 2014


Goodman, the people behind the incredibly successful Burger and Lobster have opened this restaurant which is focused purely around steak and king crab. Expect communal tables, sides, a big wine list and a limited spirit list too.

"The older I get, the less interested I am in communal revelry. But the food and service at Beast are of the high standard you can expect from the Goodman group. Executive Chef John Cadieux is a man you can trust with your dinner, or lunch." READ REVIEW

"It is a little rich joke and a perfect parable for everything that can go cynically, embarrassingly, disturbingly, greedily and unappetisingly wrong with the simple goodness of hospitality." READ REVIEW

"The Norwegian king crab is the star of the show, arriving with a tasteful kidney dish full of tools for its dismemberment. I can be slightly reticent about battering and bashing shellfish publicly, but on tasting the crab meat (which is essentially lobster; don’t go expecting fishy brown flakes) all decorum went out of the window."

"I know this is London, but at £100 per person with booze, I wish we could have seen each other properly, heard ourselves speak, and left without sore arses. In my experience, mere details such as these are always sacrificed at the altar of concept food, whatever that means." READ REVIEW

"Why do you go to Beast? It's a riot, it's like nothing else there is, both steak and crab are outstandingly good and you will dine like a medieval lord. But it will be intriguing to see who shells out to share." READ REVIEW
