This was our 4th visit to the restaurant and as we're not locals, we look forward to our visit more & more each time. We are always warmly greeted and the service is excellent. I had the duck and chorizo salad to start with pork fillet for the main. The food is always so tasty and is impeccably served as... More

Booked on line prior to a short break in York based on overview of menu. Restuarant appears deceptively small from outside but has two dining floors, the upper one of which is at street level. The service was very good but unobtrusive and the menu offered the choices we like . The wine list offered good choices at reasonable prices.... More

Visited as a birthday treat and had an amazing evening. I don't think I have ever had such good service in a restaurant. The host was so keen to help us out, even spending time pointing out where to visit with a map as we were visitors to the city, despite the fact that we were late due to having... More

Came here for my partners birthday and we had an amazing time for walking in to leaving. The host and waiter were equally friendly and attentive and the food was absolutely amazing. We both thoroughly enjoyed our evening and will definitely return again.

I visited the restaurant last Saturday, but have to say the experience I took away was nothing like the recent reviews on Tripadvisor. I had a tiger prawn starter that advertised a Bloody Mary sauce, which was no existent, followed by a rib-eye steak that was supposed to be rare, but was medium at best. The steak was tasteless and... More

Visited this lovely restaurant last weekend with friends. The host was more than accommodating and friendly. He obviously has a great passion for his business, so we were very glad that our original choice was booked! We had the great value, 3 course set dinner. Certainly recommend a visit. The Malbec was lovely and a bargain.. Thank you

A small group of us visited this lovely restaurant recently and enjoyed a delicious 2 course meal. Whilst there were only 2 staff on duty that evening the service was excellent and the food served piping hot. Definitely worth a return visit!

Whilst visiting York for a weekend with friends, we came upon 31 Castlegate after a visit to the tower. Wonderful welcome from very attentive staff. Brilliant meal very well presented and reasonably priced. Pre dinner prosecco was delicious. All our food was very tasty - crispy pork starter superb and all other dishes very very good. Go.......

While visiting York we called in to 31 Castlegate for a tea time meal . Ambience was pleasant and service excellent .The food was surprising good and we intend to revisit for an evening meal in the near future but we were advised to book several week in advance which is testimony to the qualities of this establishment .
