After a visit to a relative at Abington Hospital, we stopped at 211 York for dinner. Our reservation was set for 7:15 PM but we were late and were adamantly apologizing when we arrived (mid rain storm). The bartender/waitress said it was no problem. We looked around and we were the only diners! She seated us and took our drink... More

This used to be the high end restaurant in the area that could be depended upon for a fine meal and fine service. Ordered a dinner that I have always enjoyed in the past: crab cakes. Theirs was always unusual, but unusually good and light. This time it was HUGE, and there was no lump crabmeat there to be found.... More

We have dined at 211 many times over the years and everyone is always quite pleased with the food and service. We feel very fortunate to have such a consistently excellent restaurant in our own neighborhood. When overnight guests insist on taking us out to dinner for one night during their stay with us, we recommend 211 as our first... More

A few years ago this was a great place with fresh ideas, now just the same old food, decor needs update and so does the food.

Our evening started by arriving on time for our reservation on a Saturday night. We were seated at the smallest table I have ever eaten a meal from that was flush to the wall even though every other table in the restaurant was vacant except one by the kitchen doorway. The menu was ala catrte. I ordered the baked crab... More

It's really good and a bit of a hidden gem. It's hard to see, hard to find, but worth it for the dinners, coups, and drinks.

This restaurant is often overlooked but it is amazing. Food is consistently good and the atmosphere is lovely. Right across from the movie theater as well!

If you are visiting the Jenkintown, Glenside, or Willow Grove area of suburban Philadelphia and are looking for a great restaurant try 211 York. Excellent food, great service, intimate atmosphere but would also be good for a business dinner. May be hard to find for the first time visitor but well worth the effort. As you travel up or down...

211 York has the atmosphere and sophistication of a downtown hotspot. The waiters are friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. My Crab Imperial was cooked to perfection. If your looking for an upscale local restaurant with a chef owner, this is the place to go!
