Excellent service and a delightful champagne after tea.
Very calming decor. I met a friend for brunch, liked the variations of egg on menu. Walked passed the cakes which looked very enticing, mental note to come again & try next time. Finished off with lovely cocktail. All the staff very attentive & friendly.
Another gorgeous meal at Cafe 21 York. Staff very accommodating and welcoming.
They even supplied us with a desert to celebrate our anniversary.
Very friendly staff food really great
Lovely location within a stunning department store. Food, service and value all excellent would definitely recommend. We had afternoon tea which was delicious.
Exceeded all expectations for two ladies having a late lunch. The little things make all the difference…not only great food but quality tablecloths and napkins made it feel very special indeed. Compared with the rest of York that looked and felt crowded and busy this was the perfect sanctuary after a morning shopping. Just loved it.
Loved it! What a great treat and lovely plave
The service was a little slow and the waiter forgot to bring us a jug of water that we’d asked for.
I was sat near the kitchen and there was a cold draft which made it a little uncomfortable.
Enjoyed the stilcheton. A cheesy confection withh honey
Excellent food and attentive staff. 100% recommended!
Lovely surroundings, great staff, easy parking, good food!
What a lovely experience. Proper table linen ! Great staff . A special treat first trip out after a long lockdown. A 2 hour lunch not hurried service . Well priced food and a pretty perfect menu . The sort of place for great breakfast or lunches with friends . I highly recommend Cafe 21 - the name Cafe is a misnomer it’s a fab restaurant. Much preferred it to The Ivy . One tiny criticism was the chef was a bit heavy handed with the salt .
Food was lovely, I had the souffle followed by the meringue and both were amazing.my husband had the seafood pasta and the brulee ,and again both were amazing. The service was very good and the atmosphere was great,.
Fantastic food, lovely staff and food value
We have visited both Cafe 21 restaurants in Newcastle and never been disappointed so were really looking forward to lunch in York. And overall we had really enjoyable lunch. The only complaint I have is my smoked haddock service and ambience excellent.
Had a lovely lunch that wasn’t rushed which was great because we haven’t been able to eat out at all for a long time. Will definitely be back.
Everything was perfect and the food was amazing. Everything was COVID friendly too
Had a delightful lunch with friends, mix and matched from the set menu (vegetable crudités, Fish cakes, minute steaks) and had a delicious cocktail (Hugo Spritz) and Prosecco. All the service was great and reasonably priced.
The food was delicious. Unfortunately they seemed to be using only half the restaurant for brunch which meant I was uncomfortably close to other diners, definitely not 2m and there were no screens. The service was friendly. I had to ask 3 times for water and one of the items I ordered was completely missed. I hope it was a bad day for them and I would try it again.
Cafe 21 is a lovely restaurant. The interior is beautiful and the atmosphere is very calm and relaxing. The staff were lovely, especially the man who greeted us at the door - I didn’t catch his name but he went above and beyond to make sure we were catered for. The food was amazing - and you must try their homemade lemonade!! Definitely will be coming again the next time I visit York.
Good to see the Cafe 21 group in York. It is following the excellent standards well-established in Newcastle. Interesting menu, our choices well presented and great flavours. Professional and friendly staff. Lovely to have good quality tablecloths and napkins. Our first choice venue for lunch in York.
Lovely food in a really nicely fitted out restaurant. Adequate choice on the menu and the staff were able to adapt a dish to my liking which I really appreciated.
A lovely Champagne Afternoon Tea.
Excellent value for money and wonderful customer service.
My friend asked for Gluten Free and no meat sandwiches...her tea was fabulous too.
We frequent Cafe 21 often and it never disappoints.

Lovely food, great service - yummy champagne! Thank you!
Cafe 21 provides a quiet retreat from the business of York's. The food and service is excellent centre
Great food, excellent, professional service and a haven away from shopping. Good choice of food and drinks and good value for the quality. Would definitely recommend and will be visiting again soon
Fabulous food , 21 group never fails to delight its customers!!
Enjoyed Sunday lunch menu. Prawn & avocado salad to start, followed by roast beef ( very tender) & yorkshire pudding, with great selection of separately plated vegetables. Finished off with one of the best chocalate brownies we've had. Friendly staff, good service, great atmosphere. Will definitely be back.
I had lunch in Cafe 21 with my husband on Friday 28th May.
He ordered the Truffle burger and I had Eggs Royale, both were cooked perfectly with exceptional ingredients, my husband was really excited about his burger, the combination of flavours and different textures were lovely.
All of the staff in the cafe were really competent and relaxed helping create a really nice atmosphere. We’ll definitely return and would recommend a visit to anyone looking for a similar experience.
Fantastic lunch and great service from our waiter. Will be coming back in the next week or so to have champagne Afternoon Tea.
Very good food nice and tasty, staff lovely would visit again especially if the Discount available Thank you.
Everything about our visit to cafe 21 was exceptional and I would recommend it to anyone
Beautiful light and airy restaurant, wonderful service, delicious food and wine. First outing after a long year and can’t wait to go back.
Not cheap but tasty food and absolutely superb service
Greeting, table, table service, and afternoon tea, was Beyond excellence. Will tell family and friends, when visiting York, visit Cafe21 in Fenwicks. You won't be disappointed.
Really lovely to be back and the food was great as always.
A lovely place to spend the afternoon whether for a coffee and cake, or champagne and pasta it really is a nice setting.
The new curtains are a great addition making the area more private.
The service is always exceptional - such a lovely team and I love having this restaurant so close!
Food and service first class, but I found the room a bit chilly. No doubt due to the government warnings . I’m going to book for afternoon tea !
Very pleasant and attentive staff. Nice to have table cloths and cloth napkins. The food was well presented.
Delicious food and great service. Really lovely restaurant, will be back!
