    Was dead on a Friday night. A measure of a good restaurant apart from the food is the state of its toilet and toilet was filthy and hand dryer doesn’t work. Avoid.

    Party of 6. Booked for 7pm including one vegan. At no point was this flagged as an issue . No vegan at items AT ALL to try free other than a tomato soup leith a crème fraiche to remove Same for main- a tossed together disgusting mixture of whatever wasn’t meat in the kitchen Frankly should be a think in a 2022 GR restaurant fOH staff very friendly but not doing their job well delivering wrong orders / omitting things / putting things on order we didn’t They discounted all the vegan ‘food’ in the end This a not difficult stuff to get right and do well Very disappointing experience for a family visit Clearly GR doesn’t care too much about vegans especially at this site . Menu needs redesigning to reflect modern diners taste Chris Y

    Roast beef was lovely, well-cooked, great flavour and generous portion. Gravy was very impressive and again, great portion. Horseradish was just the perfect level of spice, thoroughly enjoyable. The vegetables were nice but not in the same league as the beef, also the broccoli in a roast caught me off guard but was not too disappointed. Roast potatoes were extremely disappointing, no flavour, only two of them, not well cooked, not crispy at all. This needs to be improved upon. The views on the Yorkshire pudding on our table were mixed, I, a well-known badger for a Yorkshire pudding, greatly enjoyed it but found it slightly too crispy, yet the others on my table really loved it. Drinks were great, had one of the best bloody Mary’s I had in a long time as well as a beautiful bottle of red which paired very well with the beef. Deserts were ok, cheeseboard was nice but extremely disappointing, three of the smallest bits of cheese I’ve ever seen. The brownie was nice but very small portion.

    Disappointing. Food is good, but it's expensive (and a sin to charge £4 for a 'breadbasket' that consisted of four thin half-slices of sourdough toast, and a ramekin of oil/balsamic). Sunday vegetarian choice poor and no vegan option at all. Waitress surly, which detracted further from the experience.

    Great food! Impressive sunday roast, the beef was amazing and it was served with the perfect amount of trimmings and gravy. The staff doesn't seem very welcoming and were not very happy we booked a table around 30 mins before the time (we were walking around and decided to eat there). I'd say any restaurant would be happy to have another table filled but clearly not this one.

    This is the perfect spot for Sunday lunch with the family. We had a lovely walk around Regents Park and then settled in for a delicious Sunday roast. Everyone had different things and they were all really yummy. The JFC starter was a highlight for my sons and the fish and chips were outstanding. The service was good and friendly and the decor is lovely, really cosy and relaxing. Price wise it is quite toppy but the quality was good enough to warrant it.

    We have eaten at York + Albany many times in the past. Service was so absolutely rushed tonight it did not make for an enjoyable experience. It really wasn't an experience at all. Server was asking us what kind of water we wanted before we even sat down at the table. What felt like 2 minutes later we were asked if we were ready to order. We ordered drinks and starters. Then rushed to ask about the main. Asked if we wanted sauces/condiments for our mains - the mains had not yet arrived. Sigh. I think we were in and out in an hour. Restaurant was not busy at all being Monday night - so not sure what the rush was..

    Tardy and impolite service. One server in particular was obnoxious. Food took 1hr to brought after placing the order. Food was OK. In general I have found ramsay restaurants on a consistent decline in terms Food and service. Just more hype and less substance.

    Went on a Monday night. Just three of us. Main course, dessert and wine. The staff were great, efficient and friendly with a sense of humour. The food was delicious, nice wine, first Rioja on the list. The interior is smart and stylish. So mostly all good. Was very quiet, which may have been from a lot of Halloween parties on the weekend. So really the only negative was the over quiet atmosphere which is probably not the norm.

    Friendly service, but first time I've been to a restaurant and the waitress did not know how to open a bottle of wine. I did it for her. But at £50 a bottle shouldn't have to. Shame on the restaurant for not training her.

    Overall really good. Very attentive service. Well looked after. My only niggle was their limited choice for gluten free options. I had emailed a query in advance but got no reply. Then called a day head and was told they don’t publish a menu but can advise on the day what ES available. Appreciate you can’t cater for everyone, but would expect a few more choices other than simply removing some ingredient items from within a standard dish. Felt like a bit of an afterthought vs considered. Which you wouldn’t expect for the price you pay.

    Im not one for a review but felt compelled to share. Booked York and Albany to meet up with friends in town from New York over a Sunday lunchtime. Chose it because we knew there was plenty of space, have enjoyed Gordon’s restaurants in the past and it offered a vegetable roast for my vegan friends. The restaurant was super quiet, not even 50% full inside (and not a social distancing thing) and felt like there were loads of staff to patrons but the service was below average. The guy who seated us looked like he would rather be anywhere else. We had one super friendly young woman serving us but the rest of the team were weirdly cold, hovering loads, but yet we had to keep asking for things. Three rounds of drinks didn’t arrive within 15 minutes and had to be chased. Food and desserts took ages to arrive. Our friends who are Vegan ordered the cauliflower vegetable roast but were told after checking the gravy wasn’t so they could just have it without. In the end they went to M&S and got vegan gravy themselves and had the kitchen warm it for them. Brits in town from NYC they were desperate for a taste of a roast and while I appreciate it wasn’t advertised as Vegan roast I think it’s reasonable to expect a restaurant of this standard to be a bit more accommodating of this diet choice in central London in 2021. Unbelievably hot inside the restaurant, wasn’t really pleasant to sit in. The decor is getting really tired. The toilets were pretty gross. The music was really badly curated, loud and irritating. We eat out loads, all over the world (in normal times) and in all sorts of places from street food stands to 3 Michelin starred restaurants and I almost never feel compelled to review, other than with my feet. But I was pretty gob smacked at how bad this was. Especially after watching loads of Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares over lockdown I was surprised to see York and Albany not even getting the basics right.

    Whilst the food was ok, the decoration and atmosphere is abysmal. I can’t really believe this is linked to Gordon Ramsay to be honest. If it still is, it certainly feels like he has forgotten completely about this one - the decoration is a cross between curry house and 70’s wine bar, really bad
