We were visiting York for a pampering break and wanted to find a nice restaurant for one of the nights. Trip Adviser had some good reviews for this place so we booked. I am so glad we did. We visited in a Tuesday night and the place was not very busy but the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The serving... More

Whilst visiting some friends in the York area, we were taken to Melton's for a Sat evening meal. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience; service, food, ambiance; all good. Portions not huge but what you'd expect from this type of establishment and I must say, plenty for me. Wonderfully cooked and presented. Would thoroughly recommend.

We visited on a Saturday evening. The restaurant is surprisingly quiet and very welcoming. Service is brisk, friendly and attentive. The food is outstanding, locally sourced, well presented with magnificent flavours and good portions. The restaurant is a little way out of the town centre but this keeps it quiet. Well worth a visit.

We visited on Saturday 2nd August while staying with my brother for the weekend it was his treat and we have to say a good choice. We had the early bird menu and had to leave by 7:30pm which was fine, ample time to eat three courses, amuse bouche, canapés and a bottle of wine. For was tasty and local... More

We have dined at this restaurant many times over many years. I have also in the past posted very favourable reviews on Tripadvisor for this and its sister restaurant, Meltons Too. It has long been one of our favourite restaurants, even though we live almost 60 miles away. However we have fallen out with them big time, and I have... More

I booked Melton's for the last night of our York stay (31st July ) after reading the trip advisor reviews. To say that the food and service exceeded my expectations is an understatement, as both were fantastic. The staff are very attentive and nothing was too much trouble, and the extra touches such as the appetisers that were given pre... More

Took a chance and went here on a weekend trip to York after reading rave reviews. Would never have found it otherwise as it's in a residential area away from main city centre. Really glad we went here as the food is excellent, topped with fab service. Brilliant menu packed with local produce, friendly maitre'd who suggested some great wines,... More

Melton's is not the sort of place that you would easily notice. it is in a plain, quiet residential area and doesn't, itself, have the looks that would appeal if you didn't already know something about it. But don't be fooled by appearances this is a friendly, welcoming restaurant providing really good food. This might look like a just a... More

Can fully recommend this restaurant as they accommodated a group of 5 of us. So many different flavours and innovative takes on traditional dishes. All ingredients were fresh. Looks nice and clean as well. Service good as well

Visited Meltons for a post graduation lunch on a very hot day. Delightful restaurant with great air conditioning. The food was absolutely sublime - I had a wonderful lovage and parmesan bread and butter pudding as a main and the puddings were utterly delicious - especially the raspberry soufflé. Very friendly and welcoming service and the prices were extremely reasonable.... More
