No.88 Walmgate @ Hotel Indigo York
Look forward to welcoming you to No88 Walmgate
We were really disappointed with the food and service which was slow. Cost of rump steak was expensive and didn’t compare to other restaurants in the same area. Steak, half a mushroom and half a tomato was cold when it arrived at the table. Not wanting to draw attention to ourselves we tried to eat the meal but didn’t. Most of the meal went back to the kitchen. My dessert was also disappointing: frozen which was unexpected. We were asked whether we wanted to order a different dessert but why would we? We were also asked if we would like a free drink? We declined. We had wanted a nice meal to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We were offered 25% of the bill! We sent more food back to the kitchen than we ate. We didn’t think this was a positive outcome.
We much enjoyed the menu and the staff were helpful but lacked proper training. You need to be patient when waiting for food and drink but worth the wait.
Wonderfully cooked food served in a bizarre order. We were encouraged to order one starter and two mains each. Over the next 90 minutes the food arrived randomly, sometimes one or two of us eating for up to ten minutes alone. Last thing to arrive was my son's starter of soup, 5 minutes after everyone else had finished eating. The waiters were excellent and the food superbly cooked. Personally it did not bother me that much, but looking around the room there were some unhappy faces. Two of our party of five would not go back, I definitely would, the place and scallops I had were cooked to perfection.
Birthday meal for my wife, and it was lovely
The waitress had not been trained well. Poor knowledge on the menu which was a shame. The food was delicious and good value - very well cooked and presented. Could do with another non-meat option. The sprats were a big hit and the chunky chips were delicious.
The hotel itself is lovely clean a nice place to stay .The restaurant wasn't good at all . My daughter is vegetarian there were only 2 choices she had risotto it was undercooked and hard awful . I had chicken it was the toughest I've ever had God knows how you d get it that tough ! We ordered Yorkshire puddings they were greasy and tasteless. We would not eat it there again it was a very bad experience. We had breakfast in there and that was nice .
Nice restaurant with good choice on the menu and good food but the lights were a bit bright and there were not many people in there but it was a Tuesday night just after new year
Good service and food, but prices £1-£2 more than equivalent places
