    Went for dinner mid week. Had a drink at the bar first which had a nice atmosphere, old world pub like. We ate on the ground floor which was ok, not great. We did take a look downstairs which seemed like it had a bit more atmosphere. Had the set menu which had good choice and dishes were good if not outstanding. Service was very good.

  • York & Albany - birthday supper
    eddie
    Dined on 27/10/2014
    We visited as a party of 6 for an early supper to celebrate my son's 10th birthday. We were seated promptly and had a good meal - enjoyed by the children and adults alike. The staff made a fuss over my son and even did a birthday 'cake' (macaroon) with a candle for him - he was delighted. The only negatives were the (ultra) low lighting - we weren't the only table using our phones to read the menu! - and the fact that they didn't have a second bottle of our chosen wine in the fridge. Neither a huge deal but worth noting! Thanks for a really pleasant evening and meal!

    Feels like an average gastro-pub but over-priced. Nice decor but far too many diners squashed in too small a space. Very short menu. "Sunday roast" beef had been pre-cut and kept warm. Otherwise good bread and veg. Charming servers but took too long to take orders and food and beverage service slow, particularly as food-choices so limited.

    We had dinner here last week and it was really lovely - excellent service and excellent food. My husband is vegetarian and although there was only one veg option for each course, they were all delicious. The only thing i would say is that it is more like a restaurant than a pub but that's fine!

    We were a little late going to our table but with all the empty spaces why were we seated by the toilets? The area under the stairs is less than desirable! Food was great but didn't really understand what the waiter was saying or asking us. However the food was great!

    We had the set menu for £24 with a glass of Prosecco. The food was brilliant, as were the wine/cocktails. However the room felt a bit impersonal, like a hotel restaurant. Didn't really feel like Gordon Ramsay's restaurant, just a good quality hotel.

  • Ok food and poor service
    ldnukfamily
    Dined on 24/10/2014
    Made the booking on OpenTable and confirmed for 3pm. In the notes we said we had a baby and there was four of us. Whilst we dealt with the complete with the complete incompetence of being put in a non-baby friendly room inside the hotel, our friends who were sitting at the table were told the kitchen is closing. On top of that, the table was only big enough for 3 people and the baby buggy would have been in the way. Ok so we sorted it out and the food itself was ok after and the service improved. In review, not exactly what you would expect from an expensive Gordon Ramsay affair. The staff in the hotel were rude and apparently disorganised. It amuses me Ramsay has a programme reviewing other hotels - maybe focus on your own first...

    Good when keeping it simple but less so when trying for clever. The restaurant is really not the strong point of the Y&A; it's bar is brighter and better. Restaurant cramped and with awful acoustics. But the service is friendly and efficient and the cocktails pretty good.

    I went with my boyfriend and we had amazing service from a waiter called George. if it wasn't for George I wouldn't have enjoyed my night as much. The ambience of the restaurant was great, and we had a romantic evening. I did not enjoy my main meal, and ended up leaving half of it. Considering the amount we paid for the meal, I was disappointed. I wouldn't recommend this to friends or family for food.

    We fancied eating out and booked a table for two using a set menu offer - went on a Monday night and it was pleasantly busy but not packed or crowded. The food was delicious, the service friendly but not overbearing, and we especially appreciated that although we were ordering from a set menu our dietary request (if we might replace an alcohol-containing side dish with one which didn't contain alcohol) was met with an "of course, absolutely no problem". Lovely atmosphere, good for a date or to meet a friend in the evening. Price wise, I found the set menu offer (£24 for 3 course meal) and drinks very reasonable (can't speak for the alcoholic drinks), and looking at the regular menu even that didn't seem too expensive. Would recommend.

    JohnA
    Dined on 4/10/2014
    Nice venue, with comfortable ambience. Unfortunately we were kept waiting 45 minutes for a table despite a reservation. Staff were polite and apologetic throughout. Might be understandable, but still unacceptable, if the restaurant was full, but it wasn't. Cocktails at the bar whilst waiting were excellent., and bar staff were attentive and polite. The food was generally good, apart from a VERY chewy duck breast. The seared tuna starter was excellent, and if the rest of the food were of a similar standard I would definitely be raving about this restaurant. It's not that the restaurant is overly expensive, just overpriced for the standard of food offered.

    i've been fortunate to eat in a number of good restaurants and quite a few that are linked to Ramsay but this was by far the one i would least recommend, service and food were great but location and decor were way under par underlined by the fact that in the courtyard there was nothing but what looked like an old shed that the waitress told us was for hire for private functions !!! ... i'm no way a snob but this place was just bland and you can see why it's days are numbered there are better places to eat and nicer locations.

    This was once a special place with good, attentive service, great food from an interesting menu and a great ambience. This weekend's visit was very different with distinctly average service, food that was well presented but was small portions of average quality ingredients that weren't really very well cooked. It wasn't special, the attention to detail has slipped and overall it's poor value for money.

    Food was rather salty, several course. Salmon arrived genuinely raw in parts, "we do it rare..." Room was dark, perhaps too much so. Competitively priced set menu, desserts were lovely. There was more than one veggie option, for our token vegetarian. Service was lovely, but sometimes we felt a bit lost in the dark. As I said before, not again, for us at least...

    This was the only Gordon Ramsay establishment we had not been to in London, so we though we would give it a try as we were going to be in the area. The food was a little underwhelming, but then with the Sunday menu, there was not as much choice as with the weekday menus. Both my husband and I found the food very highly seasoned. We love salt, but it may not be to everyone's palate. The staff were lovely though; professional, but very friendly and helpful. As this is close to Regents park and my husband and I like to go walking, we will be going back to try some other dishes.

    This is the second time I've been here over a long period. I personally found my initial visit better than the more recent. Being a typical foodie, going to a British restaurant doesn't really tickle the taste buds. I do wonder whether the restaurant is leaning too hard at the owners name rather than punch above its weight. The starter and main were okay, nothing really special. Would you expect more from a Ramsey menu? The dessert didn't seem to taste as expected, however the waiter was kind enough to remove that cost from the bill. Not sure I'd pay them another visit, especially with so much on offer in London.

    A lovely setting and perfectly located for moving on to a day day in Camden or Regents Park. I had been told that the food here was excellent, and although for the most part it was the breakfast selection wasn't quite right for a bank holiday brunch. The Eggs Benedict were a little over done and the quantity on pancakes (in particular the limited amount of banana) was rather disappointing. All in all we had a nice breakfast, but considering the additional cost didn't feel that we received much more for our money than had we gone to one of the many small boutique cafes nearby.

Once seated, service was really good and staff knew their drink and food menus well, recommending the right choices for us. Both our meals were fabulous (mains and desserts) and we'd definitely return! Pat in the back to Gordon's staff.
