Visited here for dinner on Saturday night. Make sure you book as on the night we arrived there was a sign stating they were fully booked. Both a set and a la carte menu available. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we chose the salmon trio to start, black bream and crayfish risotto for mains and shared the... More

Perfect for a couple or small group. The food was the best I have eaten in a long time, I would recommend the crayfish tails and duck! I will definitely visit again

Found the restaurant on trip advisor and so glad I did. My husband and I booked a table for 6-30 on 24/2. We were the first to arrive and the staff were welcoming and attentive. The food was out of this world together with a lovely bottle of Shiraz. Will certainly be visiting again amazing.

Had evening dinner here recently with friends. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our choices from the a la carte menu - I had tiger prawns followed by venison. Very nicely cooked with a good selection of vegetables on the side. Seated in the back room, however, we felt a bit of a draught and agreed it lacked ambience with 'tired'... More

My wife and I stayed in York for a long weekend for our anniversary and decided to try out The Lime House based on trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed at all the location was great, it was very quiet when we went (3 tables occupied) the staff were attentive but not overbearing. The food was excellent and more... More

The food is good however it was only during the meal that I looked on the food standards agency ap that I found out it had a score of only 3, for a chef of this calibre this is very disappointing

My husband and I visited the Lime House after previously having an outstanding meal here, so decided to come back for a romantic meal. The service was to a high standard and yet again the food was truly out of this world. We both had the trio of beef for main and were very satisfied customers. See you again soon!... More

Set lunch menu delicious, imaginative and very good value, excellent wines by the glass or carafe so a choice of 4 different sizes, proper restrained restaurant décor, charming service. Even an up to date website telling you all you need to know. All evidence of really thinking through what the customer wants so for that a (rare for me) five... More

Two of us ate here just after Christmas and the food was very good. We each had three courses, all different, and none disappointed. We were seated in the back which was cold, lacking atmosphere and a little quiet and not enough attention was paid by the staff. I do hate having to go looking for the bill and again... More
