“tastebuds in overdrive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

had a few beers after a days shopping then decided to eat in here for a change as i was really hungry, soon seated and presented with a menu, ordered chicken cesar salad, after a 15 minute wait (which i think is good considering the place was packed) the waitress presented me with what i can only describe as an amazing large bowl of fresh mixed leaves & salad, plenty of hot fresh char grilled chicken, panchetta,croutons, wafer thin bits of tasty cheese & anchovies all drizzled in a lovely home made cesar dressing, didn't leave any and believe me had to force the last bit in just no way was i going to leave any of this, finished off with a really nice illy fresh coffee, thankyou kennedy's you made my day will definatly be returning again.

“Yum yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

While staying next door in the amazing Fort we ate at Kennedys, as a guest you get 20% off your meals which is a really nice gesture seeing most places know they have you and charge what ever they can to get extra out of you. Anyway regardless of the discount the food, service and drinks were all wonderful. We had breakfast & evening meals and they were better than anything we've had whilst travelling around to UK
Oh and the lattes are as good as any premium priced coffee shop!

“Great Service.”

We went into Kennedys Bar for a drink after our meal. The service was fantastic. We ordered a Cup of Tea and drinks which were very nice and came very quickly. The staff were very friendly and polite.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

It wasn't easy finding a place to eat on a rainy July afternoon in York but Kennedy's was surprisingly not filled up which made me wonder if it would be okay. My family and I were pleasantly surprised at how wonderful a find this was! The food was delicious, the décor hip and urbane and the staff exceptionally friendly and welcoming. The menu was also nicely varied. I hope I get a chance to go back one pleasant summer evening to use their rooftop garden for some drinks with friends.
