My husband and I wanted to try a Gordon Ramsay restaurant while visiting London, and we liked the website's description of York & Albany. I wish I had read these reviews. I definitely agree that it was disappointing. I wasn't a huge fan of the neighborhood (it didn't feel very nice or totally safe to me... Sorry!) and nothing about it was great.
The restaurant part was pretty much empty at 6:45, so book later for better atmosphere. Our server wasnt friendly or helpful at all. The olives and cheese appetizer was ok, the scallops appetizer was ok, the sea bass was very fishy, and the peanut butter pie came with chocolate chip cookies that looked like they came from a package like Chips Ahoy. How hard is it to make a fresh chocolate chip cookie? I'm sad we wasted so much money here hoping for something great.
