Fantastic tasting menu and seamlessly matched wines. My only criticism would be the setting and background music which slightly detract and although this won’t stop me going again the meal that we had deserves a much better stage

The Park Restaurant in York is one of the best restaurants in York - actually one of the best restaurants I've been to anywhere. The menu is stimulating, different, and innovative showcasing an amazing grasp of texture and flavour with a logical sequence to the progression of truly amazing dishes that combined to provide one integrated dining experience. Nothing jarred or was out of place so that each dish was in harmony with the previous without (as sometimes happens with tasting menus) ever being reduced to a duplication of style or flavour. My partner is a pescatarian and we really appreciated the very different but also aligned menu that he had which combined some elements of the main menu but also provided some welcome differences of approach dependent on where in the menu you were. The wine list is extremely interesting, different and very reasonably priced and overall it was an utterly sublime experience enhanced by friendly but non intrusive service and a gorgeous dining room and amazing crockery! Go soon and as often as you can afford!!

Simply a superb restaurant and an excellent meal. Very careful cooking and balancing of taste and the wine pairings were exquisite. High point was the service with very knowledgable waiting staff who took real care with their work. A nice ambience with a real sense of occasion.

Foodie heaven. Unusual setting in the dining room of a "suburban" hotel, but nothing to dislike. The music was too loud for us (note to youthful staff – older folk need it quieter than people your age), but they kindly turned it down for us at once. Everything else was as it should be.

Something of a disappointment.Have been followers of AJ from Black Swan ,Sutton on the Forest (both locations) and we have been enthusiasts. I think the goal posts have shifted and at the price point the food needs to be outstanding and I would no longer rate "The Park" as such. For me the standards are set (in York accessible locations) by other competitors. Whilst I am happy to take a set Taster Menu if the courses are really outstanding ,if each of them is not I would prefer the ability to choose those that most appeal. If it is of any interest our current favourite haunts are Le Cochon Aveugle,Skosh and ,for a speedy lunch or supper The Ivy.

This was our second visit to the restaurant. Our first visit was 9 months ago and everything was excellent. We came away feeling that this restaurant would give Gavroche a run for its money and we felt it was deserving of a Michelin star. Sadly, on this visit we were proved wrong. There were only 2 other couples eating in the restaurant and due to a lack of replacement light bulbs, we could barely see what we were eating! There was no atmosphere whatsoever. The Venison dish was served cold and was inedible.it was returned to the kitchen but no hot replacement was offered. The pork dish was served tepid with a very small portion of overcooked tenderloin and burned reheated potato. We asked to speak to the chef and we were asked to wait until the end of the meal. This we did and when the chef did not appear we were told he had gone home as he had a young family! There are too many good restaurants in York to be treated like this. It was a birthday treat for my husband that turned out to be very disappointing to say the least.

Wine selections on the paring are out of the ordinary and well refined.

This was our first visit to celebrate my fiancé’s 40th birthday so we were hoping for something very special and we weren’t disappointed in any way. The food was absolutely beautiful, The dining room cute and very relaxed, The staff were very informative about all our courses and personally we thought it great value. We are just trying to justify another reason to come back quickly, But will definitely be back.

We enjoyed the seven course tasting menu, every course was well presented and the food was excellent
It was slightly odd to have a bread course second on the menu as we would have expected this to be a side dish and replaced by an amuse bouche or similar.
The restaurant surroundings are quite low key and the setting does not quite live up to the high class food.
One of our party had a lactose intolerance and the chef went to great trouble to amend each of the courses to suit the dietary issues.
Overall it was a great evening and the food was of a Michelin star establishment.
We will certainly recommend the restaurant .

Why has the park not received a star yet? Having eaten here every christmastime for four years the chef’s (Adam) food has moved from fabulous to outstanding. We eat in many Michelin starred restaurants where attention to detail has not been as detailed as the parks. Come on Michelin rate the food, it deserves it!
We will be back without question!

An excellent dining experience in a relaxed and friendly setting. We had the 7 course taster menu which was beautifully presented, flavoursome and fun. The front of house team bring a wonderfully relaxed feel to a high end dining experience.
This restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge team at The Grand Hotel in York and they're confidence was well placed.

Simple the best restaurant that doesn’t have a Michelin Star. In fact it’s a lot better than most of them as well. The creativity and the way the food is put together is genius. Add to that the brilliant front of house staff who are so knowledgeable and passionate about the whole package it makes dining here the best experience. Looking forward to next years visit already.

Have been before and enjoyed the taster menu this time we had the 4 course menu. As before it was outstanding. The front of house we're knowledgeable and very helpful. If your in the area it's worth a visit if your not it's worth the drive. How Adam hasn't got more recognition is a mystery.

Was lucky to find a table at such short notice. Heard good things about The Park and saw it had excellent previous reviews. After being in York for the day we wanted to relax and treat ourselves to a fine dining experience. The ambience and reception we received was acceptional. The food was really outstanding and offered a sensational combination of flavours and textures. The only reason I did not give this place full marks is that unfortunately after having the 4 course set menu, myself and my brother were left slightly hungry which is a real shame as we enjoyed the food so much. Makes me wonder if the tasting menu would have been the better option and more filling. Other than that the experience was very good.

We had the taster menu with paired wines. The food was outstanding from start to finish - an absolute delight, bursting with flavour and interesting textures. The staff were charming, friendly and knowledgeable and the ambience was perfect. I cannot recommend Adam Jackson's restaurant high enough, even for the most discerning diner. In fact the food was far superior to that of the Michelin star restaurant we ate in a few weeks ago. We will definitely be dining there again.

Dining room pleasant. Food and service exceptional. We dissected every element of every course and didn't find any lacking. Fabulous experience call together. Wish we lived closer so could visit more often.

Our first tasting menu and wine pairing experience. And we could not of chosen a better venue to experience this. This was an early 39th wedding anniversary night out. We felt that we wanted to spoil ourselves and we did. On looking at the menu before being seated, there were many ingrediants that I would not choose to eat, yet, each of the 7 courses got better and better as the evening went on. Some of the wines that were paired with each course were lovely others (only one or two) we felt were not, but we are not wine drinkers at all, we wanted to have a unique celebration together. We would definitely come back and do this again.
The staff, the food, the wine along with my wife made our experience, one to never forget.

Delicious food. Service superb. Adam even took in to consideration my weird allergy to honey for one of the dishes. Instead of just substituting the dish he used a different ingredient so I could enjoy the same dish as everyone else. Also left a lovely note on the menu for my wife's birthday. Outstanding, highly recommended.
