The service was lovely, all the staff were very friendly, however the food came out almost one dish after the other and it made us feel a little rushed to eat and leave. The food was amazing, beautifully presented and good value, the drinks were good too but it did take a very long time for the drinks to arrive after we ordered them. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go back.

Absolute gem of a restaurant.
We sat in the covered outside area - which we were given the option of, and I'm pleased we chose it.
2 for 1 on cocktails to get the night started.
Brie for myself and chicken wings for my other half as a starter...... good sized portions, cooked to perfection.
Gluten free burger was a solitely delicious (with added apple wood cheese) and he had the lamb shank.
No complaints whatsoever...... Storm Dennis made an appearance, the staff dealt with it exceptionally well and as customers it was nice to have friendly, pleasant staff with smiles on their faces. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting York.

Fabulous food in a fantastic atmosphere, we were in the inside area but the 'outside' was equally lovely and no danger of being cold with big heaters and lots of pretty decor!

Went on a Friday night for a reservation at 7pm. Firstly, when you walk in, the atmosphere is buzzing and the waiters/waitresses are lovely. The place is very well organised as well. We sat down and ordered etc and although the place was full to the brim (definitely book for Fridays/Saturdays), the food service was quick. The food was absolutely delicious - from starters to mains, it was lovely. I had the chicken and mushroom risotto which was amazing, my sister and the mussels and fries and my mum had the halloumi nicoise salad. The cocktails are amazing and so is the wine. Overall, we had a great evening there and did not want to leave. would definitely come back again!

Came here for my graduation dinner and cannot praise it enough. We chose to sit inside where there was a lovely atmosphere (although the outdoor seating looked very comfy too!). The service was fantastic, our waitress was really attentive and friendly. The food and cocktails were absolutely delicious and very reasonably priced too. 10/10 would recommend.

Excellent service from the friendly team especially when we had to push our arrival time on due to the graduation ceremony overrunning.

Food was mostly good but we had a long wait for one of the mains which did affect our dining experience. Our waitress was so apologetic and lovely throughout the service.

Nice touch of a congratulatory chocolate plate for the graduate.

Stayed in York for my birthday. Booked this after we arrived. The restaurant was busy but not overly noisy. A good mixture of people. The food was good and the set menu excellent value. If I come back to York I will book again if available.

A table of 4 of us dined here on sat night after a recommendation from a friend who lives in the area. We were on a weekend trip to York. From the minute we walked in to leaving everything was excellent from the service to the food. Just glad one isn't local to us as I'd be there every week.

Nice location, lovely lights throughout the entrance. Our table was very close to the next table and seemed to be on the walk way to the toilet which was a bit distracting. the first glass of wine was nice but the subsequent didn't taste the same. I sent it back and had it replaced with another glass which again didn't taste right so it choose not to have it.
