Dinner at Arras on 19th June was wonderful. The food was exceptionally good and the staff were excellent, just the right level of attentiveness.

We decided to try Arras after seeing it received 5 stars on TripAdvisor. We all had the tasting menu and cheese course which was amazing!! Each dish was better than the last. Service was impeccable and staff really knew there stuff when we aksed them about whisky and wine accompaniments! Could not recommend more!

Lunch yesterday was superb. We were a party of five meeting for a university reunion. The table was spacious, the room light and airy and we loved the modern fresh decor. The food was excellent from a small menu (three choices for each course including interesting vegetarian options). Delicious fish ravioli, sea bream and rare beef. Wonderful combination of flavours. As others have mentioned the cheese course is a highlight and served with generous and unusual accompaniments. The wine list is extensive with an interesting offering of Italian wines inherited from the previous restaurant and reasonably priced. The service was perfect, attentive but not intrusive. The pricing for the quality of food is astonishing at £24 for three courses. Our get togethers have been in London at well known top quality restaurants and all agreed this was one of the best meals we had eaten. Thank you to all at Arras for giving as a lovely dining experience.

We has booked a table after passing the restaurant a good few times, and we are glad we did. We walked in to a very pleasant welcome and were taken to our table. We were offered a wine menu which we declined choosing to drink other than wine. Firstly, our napkins were placed over our laps. and cold water poured for us. A lovely little gesture that I thought went out of favour a few years ago. We were given our menus and there was a lovely selection. I finally chose for starters the rabbit, my sons girlfriend had the eel risotto, and my husband and son had curry of lamb. then for our main course I chose loin and comfit of pork, others had the duck and the cod.
next we were brought some canopies, very tasty. then freshly baked sour dough bread with potato, onion and rosemary was brought to the table. This is baked freshly on a morning by the chef. Next came some amuse bouche soup. finally our starters came. we all enjoyed our excellently cooked food. then came the main courses...gorgeous!!. we really wanted some of the sweets, but after eating so much food we decided against this, however we chose petit fours to go with our coffees. It was like being in a sweet shop, they brought a massive tray of homemade sweets, chocolates and icecream. you can choose as much as you like, but not waste any. of course we had to eat all we chose. lol. I ate so much, we had to get a taxi home. The service was excellent, attentive without being obtrusive. the whole experience was enjoyable and relaxing. the artwork was different but fitted in with the décor. if you want good food, good service and a very enjoyable evening, where you don't need to keep an eye on the time because you know someone is waiting, as the rebook tables, then this is the place to come. You will not be disappointed.

Living in York I have no idea we've left it so long to visit.
Having great food without great service and wine means a restaurant will suffer... this isn't the case here. From the welcome by the top drawer waitress, the wine list and them the stunning food, Arras had it all.
