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.
My husband and I were dining out for our 2nd wedding anniversary and very excited as this was where we went on our first date together. When we arrived it was the obviously very busy and we didn’t have anyone speak to us or ask us if we had a reservation for around 10 minutes so we found a place to stand but waitresses passed us a few times without speaking to us at all. Eventually we were sat down but never got asked if we wanted a drink until I had to get the attention of a waitress to ask if we could order some wine. We then waited a long while for this to arrive and when it did never got asked if we would like to order our food. I again had to ask a waitress after 20 minutes of waiting with our menus if we could order. The male waiter took our order and to be fair the food was relatively quick in arriving however we were two dishes short of what we had ordered and after 10 minutes of waiting I had to ask for the dishes to be brought to us. There is no denying the food was delicious but by this stage the poor service had really quite annoyed me. We waited for a long time for our plates to be cleared and eventually ordered 2 creme brûlées and after 5 minutes one arrived and I had to tell the waitress we each ordered one so after another few minutes another was brought out. Overall the food was very tasty but the service was absolutely appalling and it really did spoil things for us. I think it was too busy for the staff to handle things properly and I really hope this can be sorted as we used to love this place!
We have been coming to Ambiente for years. Unfortunately this time we did not enjoy our exoerience that much. The change of menu we feel has not improved & was better before. Our waiter forgot items we ordered & forgot drinks & we had to ask several times. We waited nearly 30 mins for a menu for dessert & then were asked if we wanted anything after another long wait. It’s a shame this experiences was poor as before it’s been so much better. ☹️
Amazing food with brilliant friendly service. Can’t wait to come back!
Had a wonderful meal served by very friendly & professional staff , lovely atmosphere . When in York , I usually dine at the fossegate branch & thought I would try Goodramgate for a change & glad I did . Food was amazing & the sangria was deliacioua . Only thing missed was that we asked for water & it never came but we could see how busy the staff were & didn’t worry about it . Thank you for a fantastic meal
Drinks very expensive.
Quality of the meal was excellent. We all felt the dishes were more interesting and a little more unusual to your other York restaurant. The only slight negative was that the staff are a little frosty and service is quite clinical. Efficient, but no chat or few smiles. But, we’d come back for the food.
Love the new menu you have to try the Padron peppers. You could lucky and get a really hot one! Great atmosphere and attentive staff.
Really delicious imaginative reasonably priced food. Relaxed personable staff
I have loved this restaurant for a long time - last might was unfortunately the end of that - the new menu is not great, the wine selection poor and we were both unwell after our meal. Sorry but we will not be returning a great Shame to see such a good place go downhill.
Lovely food, however 3 or 4 of our choices not available from the menu, which was rather dissapointing.
My first time at Ambiente and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great selection of food, will definitely be coming back. Very reasonable.
The food was delicious, the staff were helpful and cheerful. Would definitely visit again
Great place and very helpful staff - good for small groups or couples.
I had a great evening with my partner Julie for.her birthday
Very good food, creatively prepared. Service, however, was shocking. We were seated about 20 minutes late, despite having a reservation. Service was very slow (two courses took 1 hour 45). We were offered the desert menu, which we took. When the waitress came back to the table 10 minutes later and she said we needed to vacate the table in two minutes to make it available for other guests. We travel loads and have eaten in hundreds of restaurants of all standards around the world. Can’t recall being so poorly treated.
Food was absolutely amazing, although I was disappointed to not see paella (traditional Spanish cuisine on the menu. Service was good at getting the food and drinks out, but took a long time to get the bill, had to ask multiple times and even ended up having to go downstairs to finally get the payment sorted.
Highly recommended! Thoroughly enjoyed everything about the whole evening. Food was delicious, service excellent. Well done!
Had a lovely evening with friends, but on such a hot night we were left waiting 45 minutes without drinks. We had to ask for water for the table 4 times and in the end we went downstairs to get it. Food was lovely as usual but service, whilst friendly, wasn't up to scratch I'm afraid.
Excellent. Lovely food, great service. Really enjoyed our dinner.
Gold stars all round! Such a wonderful place. This was one of the best service experiences I’ve ever had in a restaurant. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and there’s a great choice of drinks - especially the sherry! All for a good price too.
Super staff, very friendly and efficient. Food gorgeous as always.
