We initially tried to get a table at Bennett's on our first night in York but found that we had arrived a bit late in the evening and missed the dinner service. Not to be defeated we made a reservation for our second night, based on the appetising menu, and were not disappointed. The staff are extremely professional, the atmosphere and view across to York Minster are fantastic and the food is exceptional. The menu is also great value - I really felt that the bistro would be able to charge double the prices were it located in London for instance. Overall the meal contributed greatly to a memorable weekend trip.

Pleasant staff and had to wait for table but they always checked we were being seen to and only had about a 5 minute wait to be seated. The food choice was good and we all went for the melts which were very tasty. However I do think that they were missing coleslaw and this would have made the meal spot on! Good value and lovely atmosphere. I would return. :)

We had only gone for a day and we knew about Bennett vie trip adviser and we were not disappointed a well earned cup of tea and a hot sandwiches. Good and welcoming staff would have liked a few more tables and chairs outside, it was a lovely day and the views around Minster with the bells ringing and the brides and grooms walking around having their pictures taken was a very enjoyable time .

We were in and out in 45 minutes and could have taken a bit more time but food and service was good.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Bennett's. We showed up quite early for our reservation because my husband was hungry and we were gracefully accommodated. The waitress did a good job of servicing the tables in an attentive manner without being intrusive. We enjoyed the food and had a nice, relaxing meal in a very pleasant atmosphere.
