Although we wouldn’t be keen on the rest of the menu as it’s quite fancy, this is simply the best steak in York!!
Only ourselves in the restaurant but we had a lovely meal for my husbands birthday. My only criticism was that the butter was hard (pet hate in a restaurant!!). Lovely front of house lady serving us and made us very welcome. The food was as delish as ever!!
Booked for my wife's birthday.
From the moment we were shown our seat we felt very safe.Both my rib-eye steak with chunky chips & my wife's cod fillet on creamy mussel risotto were cooked to perfection. The Gin&Tonic lemon glazed tart was to die for.A bottle of Malbec Rose complemented the meal .
We must give a big shout to the two young waitresses who were excellent in todays climate.
I hate to give a negative review whilst in tier 2 and restaurants are struggling but I can only be honest, the snack starters we had and the dessert were all really good but the burger was not, it was overcooked and I did not enjoy the taste at all, I was up all through the night with a bad stomach and my friend who had the same was also not well from it. It was such a shame as I have had brilliant meals from here but sadly not on this occasion.
On a positive note the waitress was lovely and really attentive.
Had a lovely experience from start to finish. Sat in a quiet room with two other tables of two, so felt safely socially distanced. The waiter was very attentive and charming and food came quickly. The food and wine were superb. Absolutely no complaints. Will definitely be revisiting.
Went for Sunday dinner after reading some reviews. The food was amazing, not the cheapest sunday roast but probably the best. The place looked spotlessly clean inside and the staff are friendly and helpful.
Wonderful food, really great service (Josh was lovely!), great ambience. Sad we don’t live nearer as would love to go back! Best Bloody Mary we have ever had, and the food was outstanding. Will go back if we ever go back to York!
The experience we had was great brilliant staff good food & very good regards COVID restrictions. Lovely evening will definitely return & recommend to friends
Fabulous food, drinks and music.
We had steaks... Very nice, one of the best I've ever had.
Hosts were lovely too!
Check out the wallpaper!
This was my third visit to the Whippet Inn and the food and service is incredible every time. The flavours of the food are unbelievable and the menu is inspiring and always changing. Excellent service, great wine, can’t recommend enough!
The food was excellent and the service was very pleasant, but exceptionally slow - 2 hours 45 minutes for 2 courses for 4 people
Went to Whippet with friends and enjoyed everything from the warm welcome to the food
A wonderful lunch. Really knowledgable staff who helped us make great choices. Lovely setting and amazing quality food.
Will certainly be visiting again
Amazing food, amazing service allround pleasurable experience
What a wonderful restaurant, food was exquisite perfectly cooked to choice, restaurant clean staff immaculate and very pleasant, will 100% be going back.
Lovely place, friendly staff, tasty food and very dog friendly! What's not to like? Heartily recommend.
Best steak I have ever tasted!!!
Beautiful fillet steak, so tender and full of flavour. Friendly professional service. Felt ver my safe.
Outstanding as usual
Lovely atmosphere with great quality food. Tables spread out and felt very safe. They just need boe gin on the menu!! Thanks :)
We love this place. A very warm and friendly welcome. The staff are always very knowledgeable and helpful. The food is so good it's always hard to decide what to have. They have an excellent wine list too and favour local suppliers of beers and spirits which is always a great idea. I wish we lived nearer.
My wife and i have dined here previously on a visit to York about 2 years ago. I am pleased to say it is as fabulous now as it was then. Superb staff and great ambience. The star of the show however is the food. We had steak from the specials board cooked to perfection, accompanied by a great Portuguese red. Treat yourself you won't be disappointed.
The roast beef dinner was amazing only criticism would have liked more vegetables
Excellent food, definitely worth the price! We sat in the back and it was fairly quiet with good music on in the background at a good level. Service was excellent and the staff were very friendly!
My only thing that wasn’t absolutely ideal was the cocktails, slightly too much orange peel in the old fashioned
Food was outstanding! We ordered the rib eye and fillet steaks along with two side dishes..
Would definitely go back
A great find, Covid precautions were great. Everyone knew what they were doing ,smoothly run. A really great restaurant
Beautiful as always the best steak iv ever had. Will be going again on our next trip to York
Great service, great food, good choice of drinks available and overall a great evening!
Excellent food and great service. The staff were really knowledgable and friendly! Would highly recommend.
We went here on the recommendation of friends, very welcoming from the start, the place was also immaculate, the food was delicious also, as were the drinks, staff were very attentive, even changing part of a meal to suit one of our party certainly will be back when next in the area
Food was lovely, really enjoyed the vegan steak and sticky toffee pudding. Service was brilliant also, would definitely recommend
Superb quality of food and very good service which resulted in a relaxed dining experience.
Wow. Where do I even start? We visited for my husbands on his request that we return. We weren’t disappointed. Everything was exceptional! The food was the best I have ever eaten and the service was perfect! Attentive but not too much. The staff knowledge was second to none and we cannot wait to return! Thank you for a splendid evening!!
Arrived early and was seated straight away. Waiter was great . Our table was not great as it felt like it was pub grub not a dining experience as table was small and in the pub side not actually in the dining area.
We had the chateaubriand and the meat was lovely as expected but was served with basic chips and peas a Bit of a letdown really.
Would of expected sauté potatoes or dauphinois potatoes and extra special veg !! For £80
Really good Sunday roast, good selection of beers, excellent service. Reasonable price too.
Would have loved mash potato with my Sunday lunch.
The chocolate desert was a bit of a let down too.
But overall lovely.
Great place to eat,great food & service
The staff were really friendly and the food was excellent. It was really well organised and the Covid rules did not impact our evening at all. We would definitely go back!
Amazing food in a great venue in York! Excellent staff and an overall brilliant dining experience go be had!
Superb! Great food and service
I'd heard good things, and I wasn't disappointed. I am relatively new to York and was looking for good steak. The Whippet Inn didn't disappoint. The two of us shared the 1kg T-Bone special, and it was fab. Wine choice was a bit of a miss, but that's more personal taste. Definitely would return.
