Not somewhere I was desperate to visit but went with a friend. Food was nice enough but it is clear that it is chain restaurant food. Staff were very busy but made the effort to do everything they could to make our visit great

Lovely food, a bit quirky in a British sort of way. Nice feel, lovely decor, hilarious wallpaper. Salted squid to die for! Not a fan of 'chunky' chips but good variety and lovely staff. Not massively overpriced either - busy and lively.

First time at Jamie Oliver restaurant. Oh my goodness it was so good! I had the tagliatelle with truffle and it was delicious. My tastebuds were dancing! The service was excellent and I loved every minute.

We expected something special but it was just all right. The staff were lovely and the food was ok. They did let me have tiramisu as part of the 2 courses even though that's usually not on offer in the evening.More

I review a recent visit. I did it honestly, describing it as being an appalling main course, which we both thought it was. The one star given was only because you can't give none. A reply from the restaurant was then shown asking me to contact a Kieran Wootton by email. I did, but have heard nothing else. My first question is whether Kieran Wootton actually exists? Is the reply to the review simply a means to make people think that they care and that are trying to be responsive but don't really care? Given the experience of others I know what I think but I'd actually love to be proved wrong. I won't hold my breath though.

For a man who owes his success to his persona as a "man of the people" Jamie Oliver should really be doing something about this. However, I'm beginning to suspect that he's reached a position where criticism and complaints... More

Where is the opportunity for the customer to respond further to a restaurants reply to a review? Jamie's Italian York - I reviewed as average. I received a response from someone called Luke asking to direct feedback to him which I did. I have yet to have received a reply to that, and wonder if his response on trip adviser was to give the appearance of being open to feedback only.
