I don't know why it has taken three years of living in York to come here... But we are very glad we did! Very friendly and professional service... A great menu - not extensive but all the better for that... Still a varied choice. Beautifully cooked and presented and extremely yummy. Good wine and a very good value for money.... More

My husband booked this fantastic restaurant for Valentine's day dinner. It did not create this specific money making Valentine's menu but just their standard one which was brilliant. Having eaten at Michelin restaurants, this was up there with the ones I have been too. It was delicious and the staff were very attentive. Thank you for making Valentine's Day very... More

Fabulous eaterie, chef owner and wine expert wife/front of house, made this a memorable experience. De-licious food, expertly cooked and prepared, was faultless, likewise the recommended wine (not something we usually abide by) was to be applauded - we were recommended a wine from a new Californian vineyard she had found, and boy, was it delicious. All in all, cannot... More

The food at Meltons is consistently good. The menu is varied and caters well for vegetarians. The atmosphere is quite formal but relaxed and the staff are very friendly. It is good value although not cheap but the quality of the food, the range of ingredients and the creativity of the menu makes eating here a special occasion. We have... More

We went here for lunch to celebrate a graduation and birthday. The food was incredible and the service was very good. I was impressed by the professionalism of all of the staff. My only minor complaint is that the standard of the toilets does not match the rest of the restaurant experience. Please refurbish the toilets. I would definitely recommend... More

We had never had a disappointing meal in Meltons which is why we visit on every trip to York. This time, we were there for dinner on a very quiet week night. We picked the window table which allowed us to enjoy the remaining evening light. Service is friendly and never stuffy in this restaurant. A good selection of choices... More

We had a wonderful meal at Meltons, I can't recommend this restaurant enough for a special meal. I was delighted to find I could have the vegetarian tasting menu and my husband the regular tasting menu. So often restaurants insist you have the same, though in the end we chose to dine a la carte as my husband was intrigued... More

It was the fifth anniversary of our civil partnership, and on this rare occasion, we had a babysitter to look after our recently adopted son. Meltons is just down the road, and we decided it was the ideal restaurant to rediscover after not having been for several years. We splashed out on the tasting menu (£40 a head for 5... More
