Description: 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.

Ate here on Sunday evening. £40 a couple plus a bottle of house wine (or £10 off a listed bottle). The food was amazing with a great choice on the menu. It is a very cosy and intimate setting. The staff are friendly and attentive. Brilliant location with a view down the cobbled streets of York. Definitely recommended and will... More

My partner and I visited the restraunt on Friday evening with a last minute table reservation. Our food (steak) was delicious and the chef was fantastic after we requested some sauces. The front of house staff were friendly and attentive throughout our visit. My only (and quite minor) problem was that the food was served very very quickly and we... More

We visited Nineteen for the third time on Saturday evening and were disappointed that having called to reserve the window table upstairs in September, we learnt that the table had been allocated to someone else when called in to confirm the booking on Saturday lunchtime. Despite this setback the food was excellent as always and service, while a little frantic... More

Small but quaint atmospheric restaurant tucked away down a tiny lane. Great food, service and ambience. Our table wasn't quite ready so we were taken to a small bar/bistro directly opposite for a drink. Didn't wait long for our table and it was well worth the wait. Would definitely recommend and visit again. Book early to avoid disappointment!

Sunday menu was good 2 courses and a bottle of wine, however the food was a little cold, we didn't complain just found myself hurrying to eat the food. The meal was extremely tasty so may try again.

Having been to York with my husband on several occasions this is by far the best visit yet and I'm convinced its because we found Nineteen! Lovely old, typical York, building that created a beautiful ambience! The food was stunning and good value at 2 mains and a bottle of wine for £40. We're not ones for tipping for service... More
