Nineteen Restaurant is a sophisticated little gem nestled in York's vibrant Grape Lane. Situated in one of York's oldest buildings, dating back to 1437, Nineteen provides a relaxing and contemporary atmosphere. The assured menu boasts plenty of fresh seafood and local North Yorkshire produce. Popular dishes include the Whitby fish pie with cheesy topping and the char-grilled ribeye steak served with Bearnaise and triple cooked chips. If that's not enough to make your date doe-eyed, try reminding them that Grape Lane was once an infamous institution in York's old red light district, known to locals as Grope Lane.

Thoroughly enjoyable evening

We ate here on Friday night having booked well in advance as advised to get an upstairs window table for two (it’s the one pictured on their website) The Medieval building has oodles of character and charming throughout.

The waitress was young and lacked experience, not her fault, down to the lack of training by the management I suspect. What we ate was of good quality, when we eventually found dishes that on their short menu was available. The chicken dish as a starter was not available neither were main courses, cod with prawns and samphire or fillet... More

Disappointment is well to the fore after my visit to 19. Many very happy reviewers cannot be wrong, I'm not wrong in my experience of 19, therefore the kitchen lacks consistency. A quiet Tuesday night in York, only one other couple dining and one lone waitress on. Took a seat upstairs ( by the window, good for people watching in... More

The tasting menu was excellent and Chris the chef was a star, so helpful and friendly! The food as usual was sublime and we left completely content (and full!) We were allocated the... More

Really deserves 3 1/2 stars. Quaint restaurant steps from the York Ministry. Food was good, but not memorable. Really need to work a bit more on getting their flavors and seasoning to pop. A few highlights, but mostly pretty ordinary. Service was good with friendly attentive staff, but not high end professional. Price was reasonable with a party of 4... More

My partner had requested a romantic table and we were given a lovely 1st floor window position. The staff are lovely, especially Boy Wonder. Great service! All our food was cooked to perfection and of high quality. Couldn't fault a thing. Perfect!

My husband and I ate here for our anniversary on a Friday night. Sadly it wasn't as special as I remember it being last time. The food was still lovely but the atmosphere was lacking. We sat downstairs which was a little dark & dingy compared to last time when we were lucky enough to get the "table by the... More
