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.
Food was fabulous although I did think portions were small
Took 2 hours from sitting down to leaving. Ordered 5 tapas meals and desserts. Finally took our drinks order after 20 minutes waiting. Everytime we had a menu, it took around 20 minutes for a member of staff to come back. Also eventually gave up waiting to pay. Walked downstairs to pay, handed to the manager who bear hugged a friend mid way through taking our payment.
Table of 7 Friday 19th October very enjoyable evening food was excellent although they were very busy the standard of service was good .Thank you !
ReLly lovely meal
As always fabulous food, drink and service. Great staff. Thank you. Back asap.
We had a nice evening here for our Wedding Anniversary, the staff were very helpful and friendly. Only thing i'd say was that my husband is a big fan of the Spanish drink Licor 43 and was looking forward to ending the meal with a glass. It was on the website menu (I checked before we arrived!!) but when he ordered one on the night, they had no clue what it was so he went without. However, we would return for sure next time we are in York.
What a great night - the food was brilliant and so were the sherries - Thank you to Ambiente and Gonzalez Byass for this brilliant sherry week event. When's the next one?
Started out slightly on the wrong foot, as we booked a table for 9pm, arrived at 9 to be told we were expected earlier and couldn’t sit downstairs, not too big a problem as there was only 1 table occupied upstairs. Waiter then seemed to chill out and took our order, when it arrived it was amazing. Will definitely be going back and hopefully get an earlier reservation.
Great tapas, fantastic Sherry selection and cheerful staff
The food was lovely and the waiting staff were really good but as with all restaurants it annoys me that the drinks are so marked up on price. You pay over the odds for food because you are paying for someone's skill in producing a meal out of it but a bottle of wine hasn't been made by the restaurant but bought wholesale. It's a shame and just because all restaurants do it doesn't make it right.
Absolutely beautiful food. Fantastic vegan options. The staff are very clued up on sherry and food. I will be going back!
Fantastic food. Loved trying to work out what was what on the seafood platter. Service great.
I would not recommend this to anyone. It Must be one of the worst place to eat in York. Ive lived and been coming to York since 1977. Arrogant (the manager) and incompetent staff with no idea about service. However, the food is terrible, I doubt if the chef could point to Spain on a map, never mind Catalonia.
We often eat here if we are eating out in York. This was the first time we attended an event. International Sherry Week, it surpassed our expectations by a long way. a Lovely night, great food, great staff, brilliant efforts to work around severe allergies, lots of information, and of course, sherry!
Had a fabulous night at the tapas and sherry evening! Really enjoyed learning about sherry from Rob! The food was amazing!
I think the menu or maybe the cook may have changed as the food was not as good as it was on previous visits
In my option, the portion sizes were a little underwhelming. This would probably put me off returning in the future.
Disappointed with the food-had expected it to be the same as the other venues. Patatas Bravas were potatoes with two side sauces. Calamar was not what was expected either. Will use other branches in future as Goodramgate has different menu.
Love the changing and delicious menu here, and the knowledgeable and very helpful staff. We keep coming back
Fabulous food, wine and people. We loved it. It was the perfect evening.
Great food, good portions, excellent service. Would definitely return!
Gorgeous place, wonderful service and the food was super tasty. Also made my friend's birthday by wishing her a happy day by Nane and the candle in her dessert!! It is the kettle touches that make a difference! Will definitely be back!
I have been many times to Ambiente but my friends were 'virgins'! They adored it! We will all be back!
Warm welcome, (in spite of delays caused by train problems), food excellent, service ditto, atmosphere great, but a tad noisy upstairs, hearing suffered a bit, and conversation difficult. Maybe downstairs is quieter?
Fantastic food and drink with friendly service. Always our first stop for a meal in York. Wish you'd open one in Norton-on-Tees.
