Valentines Lunch

Dropped in on Saturday 14th lunchtime without a reservation and was quickly seated upstairs. The black pudding scotch egg starter was amazing followed by local Pickering trout. The service was efficient and friendly. Value for money was excellent. We will be back.

This great restaurant in downtown York is closing Friday January 30. New owners of a little over a year, are selling the restaurant. Great location, right next to the courthouse and in the middle of busy downtown York. My husband ordered the chicken corn soup and I had the French onion soup - both delicious although onion soup was saltier... More

We went here on a Friday night with reservations for 6:00. Seated promptly, service was very good, not hovering. Menu is varied, there is something for everyone. I ordered the French Onion soup and Salmon Havarti sandwich. Soup was so so lots of not very tasty broth, very little onion pieces but lots of cheese. Sandwich was small with not... More

I'm bummed. This was a go to restaurant for us for quite a while. Not so anymore, as both my husband and I had a second round of subpar meals with a visit on Bike night. I waited a month before submitting this review, as I really wanted to step away and reflect. But,something has changed at Bistro 19. We... More

We heard quite a few people talk about this place, so we gave it a try on a Saturday - early evening. It took too long for a server to arrive at our table (10 minutes) and the restaurant wasn't even at 30% capacity. Drink selection is less than average. We had the cheesesteak egg rolls for an appetizer. They... More

We went to check Bistro 19 out for my best friend's birthday. She has recently moved to downtown York and had wanted to try it since it looked jazzy and fun. Our party of four was seated relatively quickly in the front indoor dining room which was clean and comfortable, and once the lights were dimmed, the atmosphere was quite... More

Good spot to hang downtown. They have live music most weekends, drinks are nice and the crab dip is really yummy. Don't get the nachos!

Food is fine and service is mixed. It has limited outdoor seating - on George Street - but there really isn't enough room to enjoy it without pedestrians hitting you as they walk on the sidewalk. The staff is friendly, but the service can be slow. Great location to drop by before a show at the strand to catch a... More
