Great steaks...and G&T’s. Staff were great! Love the decor...
Eaten here several times and it never disappoints. Good food at reasonable prices all in all I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend
The service was ridiculously slow, waited an hour for the food to be brought out despite the restaurant being really quiet and it being a Sunday evening. We were told two of the choices that we ordered had ran out, after ordering it. Asked for the steak to be cooked medium, instead it was well done. Food was average. Went her thinking it would be good as it has some good reviews. Very disappointed and would not recommend.
Best service we’ve had in a while - everyone was so nice and the food was just amazing! Lovely atmosphere too x
Great food and attentive service. Small restaurant so when a party of around 8 adults came in it became quite noisy.
Fabulous Sunday roast with exceptional service can't wait to go back.
Food was very nice, presented well and tasted amazing! Desserts were also very good! Lovely atmosphere, bar area was big enough for a small wait! Service was very good, all staff are friendly and attentive. Would recommend to friends
First Class Food! Service was perfectly balanced, pleasant and knowledgeable.
SUNDAY LUNCH AT BEST TEPID.
NICE SETTING AND AMBIENCE SPOILT BY THE FOOD TEMPERATURE.
TABLE NEXT TO USE HAD THE SAME COMPLIANT .
Arrived a little early so the prosecco I had rang for in advance wasn’t ready, worked out well as my partner decided he fancied red wine. Did ask if they could make a fuss for a birthday but didn’t actually get anything even though they said they’d try. My steak was undercooked so had to go back and they were fine to change it quickly which I appreciated. My partner really enjoyed his food and both desserts were lovely! Overall not the best experience I was looking for but at the same time wasn’t the worst. I’d say medium experience given the little hiccups.
Very nice and our third time at the whippet only complaint that the rib eye steak was not anywhere near as thick as on our last visit
Wonderful meal. Excellent service. That’s why we keep coming back
The restaurant was cozy very good menu an steaks cooked to perfection staff very helpful an knowledgeable about the food an drinks ...we really enjoyed everything an reasonably priced .
We were in York for the wk end. We went here after a friend suggested it. She did advice to order the steak. Unfortunately I didn’t and I ordered the seabass. Smallest portion ever!!! I order seabass regularly at other restaurants. Here it was far from cheap too. I was so hungry after. We had to go elsewhere. Really disappointed 😔
Very nice meal for our wedding anniversary. 21 years
really enjoyed the setting.food amazing,eaten here before well worth every penny.will be back.
As always lovely service, good menu with well informed staff. Will definitely go again
Amazing evening, very attentive waiter, the food was great. We had a fantastic time
Brilliant again we love The Whippet Inn. Great atmosphere, service and food. A York gem!
Every course was cold didn’t want to complain but would not return
Lovely tasty meal, well presented. Efficient staff. Meal took a little while to arrive, probably due to not having starters. Room got a little bit too warm but still ambient atmosphere. Friends from London really enjoyed it and thought it different and good value for money.
Beautiful food, and our waitress was great, very attentive & engaging. Even better as we had a 50% off food voucher during January - great idea from one of York's best steak restaurants!
Fantastic steak for me and my wife on a break to York. Great desserts too! Would go again
Booked a table for Sunday evening for a roast. When odering food was told that roasts all ran out at 5pm.
Ordered of the a la carte menu. Food was well cooked but small portions. Desert was enjoyable. Service was great.
Probably won’t return.
Really lovely meal!! Just met with a couple of good friends for lunch, amazing service, great food, great atmosphere! Would definitely recommend !
Excelling service from Grace!! Food was perfect, will defiantly be returning and reccomending to everyone!
This is a very mixed review as I had the chicken trio and my husband had steak. The smoked chicken was on the dry side, the chicken and leek pie was not warm enough and stodgy with the bottom of the pastry almost uncooked. The lollipop was tasteless as was the mustard mash. I found myself having to add salt and pepper to everything. Also the small amount of veg that was added was definitely not as described. I was very disappointed. On the other hand my husband had the fillet steak special and everything was spot on ! The desert ginger parkin and salted caramel sauce was devine. As it was my birthday treat I was most dissatisfied. I noticed the lady on the next table also sent her meal back and then ended up taking it home for her dog ! I also thought it was cold in the restaurant.
Excellent Sunday roast lunch, the beef was cooked to perfection and was accompanied by a good selection of vegetables, I would definitely recommend and it was also good value for money in my opinion as a Londoner dinning in York.
We came here for Sunday lunch. We will definitely be back! The service was fantastic and the set menu was excellent value.
I had salmon to start which was so fresh and tasty. For mains we had rib of beef which just fell off the bone, and the extras cauliflower cheese, parsnips, carrots and lots of roast potatoes.
The best roast we’ve had in York.
Really good honest food ! Will definitely be back soon . The staff were very friendly and helpful. Thanks
Amazing food and service as always! Thank you!
What a find! Brilliant and inventive menu which lived up to its promise. Beautifully presented food in a classy but quirky atmosphere.
The staff were friendly and attentive and could not be faulted, they really went the extra mile to make everyone feel special.
The only negative comment I could make is that the music could be better chosen to enhance the ambience.
I would book again in a heartbeat
Steaks are incredible and cooked to perfection. Waiting staff were great and nothing was too much trouble.
Amazing! Always a lovely service and great food. All round good experience.
Amazing place. Great staff make a special evening :)
Fantastic food an atmosphere in a former pub just back from the River Ouse. The staff are attentive and friendly with good advice on the menu and specials . If you love steak then this is the place to come to its always cooked and served to perfection.
Second time dining here and once again a great experience..........until we were unexpectedly presented with the bill without being asked if we wanted puddings or anything else. Feeling we had obviously overstayed our welcome we paid and left. A disappointing end to an otherwise lovely Sunday lunch.
The whippet was recommended to me by my son who had been before. The building by the looks of it had been a pub before which made it nice and comfortable not big and new with all polished surfaces like some places. The food was excellent and the service was very prompt and the waiter very helpful and pleasant , we will be going back again soon 5 stars from me and my wife.
Excellent. Yorks hidden gem!
Great food, great staff.
Lovely food in a lovely atmosphere great service too
