About Ambiente Goodramgate
Ambiente's York restaurant is situated just inside the city walls close to the Minster. Laid out over two floors, the restaurant specialises in Mediterranean inspired tapas dishes alongside a comprehensive range of sherries & wines.
This was our second visit to Ambiente. The food was absolutely delicious, staff are extremely friendly and professional. Have already told our friends and family to make a booking as they will not be disappointed. Only wish we had an Ambiente restaurant in our area.
Food and drink were great but made all the better by your fantastic staff. Thanks for a really good night.
Ambiente's recently introduced a new menu meaning the dishes we ordered were completely different to the usual fare I see in tapas bars- and brilliant for it. Service was friendly and attentive and compared to chain restaurants it's great value for money- plus we were full for hours!
Me and my family visit this restaurant and the other one in York on a regular basis. I have recommended it to lots of people and in the past I have had only good things to say. However, during my recent visit this was not the case. As we walked in to a restaurant full of people we were left standing there awkwardly for a considerably long time before a waitress came to see us. I had booked a table and when she got this information she called the manager and he asked for our age and then our ID in front of a full restaurant with everybody looking at us. This was very embarrassing and made us feel uncomfortable putting a negative note on the rest of the meal. It would have been more professional and subtle to seat us and then ask us for ID instead us having us route for it in a packed restaurant. I do not understand why this is a requirement anyway as at this point we had not ordered any drinks and even if this is a company policy it should be handled differently or not at all because although we are young we came for a meal we wanted to enjoy just like everybody else in the restaurant who probably did not get embarrassingly ID’d. I strongly advise you think of another way to go about this as I have suggested as I am very unhappy and it has put me off the restaurant I usually love.
The new pork dish was excellent and, as usual, the vegetarian selection was unsurpassable - our favourite being the Moroccan cauliflower dish.
Fantastic experience, great food and night was made even better by the friendly, warm and attentive staff
Great food and service fab night
Incredible food with the perfect service. Couldn't have been better. Iona and Justin were the greatest servers. So friendly and made the experience very personal!
Great evening! Staff very friendly & knowledgeable about the menu. We'll be back. Thank you.
Lovely menu choices
Great service and delicious food - would particularly recommend the seafood sharing platter!
Food very good spoiled by very slow service. To be fair this was recompensed to a degree by a free bottle of wine but needed a complaint to register our displeasure. Wouldn’t go again on a Saturday night.
Very enjoyable evening. Fresh food food and pleasant service.
After over a decade of eating here it is still the best place to eat in York. See you again soon!
Brilliant afternoon, lovely food and really helpful staff
just a really cosy place with fantastic service
Easy to book, very pleasant staff, excellent food and drink, made for a very special evening.
A truly fantastic evening that my partner and I enjoyed tremendously. Second time we’ve been and fabulous!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to your restaurant
Friendly, helpful staff (in particular George, who put our table booking back half an hour when I called to say we were going to be late due to it having taken longer than expected to get the kids to bed), lovely food/drink and atmosphere. A really enjoyable evening.
Food was good but the service was lacklustre and indifferent. Place was too warm and we really didn’t like being pushed into donating to charity at the end of our meal. What an intrusion!
The menu had updated since our last visit five months ago (approx) and it was just as enjoyable as it was before. The variety was excellent and we had some really fantastic food.
Would highly recommend. Service and atmosphere was great. Really tasty food and as there are several vegan options was spoilt for choice!
Got told they had a new menu. Very limited options. The menu used to be far better. As a regular customer to all of your restaurants I was disappointed. We had a warm welcome and really good service untill the food came. Once arrived, we did not get asked once how our meal was. One of my dishes was cold and the others were luke warm. After getting the waiters attention I ended up sending my Patatas Bravas back as it was cold. Got told I would have a fresh batch.. The exact same dish came back... only reheated and they'd added some chives onto the alioli dip to make it look fresh....Disappointing as Potatas Bravas is such a popular and simple dish to make.
Good food with excellent service
