Now the Bar and Restaurant are no longer separated just one big semi-circle, it has encouraged a more noisy atmosphere which can make serious conversation difficult in the tabled area of the restaurant.

It was super busy full of Christmas revellers and we were there as pre theatre diners so not quite the night's target audience. We had non Christmas set menu, portions were small, food unremarkable, staff pleasant but understandably run off their feet so service was poor. Not really fair to judge it on that occasion and would be willing to try it again at a quitter time.

Great venue and service but the first champagne I asked for was no longer available and the 2nd one I've asked for was not cold so the poor waitress had to make us wait for it - feeling so uncomfortable and apologising continuously. But apart from that, food was great, service was wonderful and we even had live music.

Dinner after a concert was disappointing. A warm welcome though service marred by confusion amongst friendly staff as to who should do what, too many of them? Food dull not seasoned. Terrine dry and without flavour, beetroot mushy overcooked. Scallops and prawns overcooked, rump steak accurately cooked rare but lacking in flavour (was it from the ageing beef on display?) Chips crisp but flavour suggested an uninteresting variety of potato. Excellent Rioja at £10 for 250ml good value which is more than can be said for the meal £110 for two courses for two with only one glass of wine. A pity because it should be a fine place to eat after a concert.

it was our 20th wedding anniversary.. food was lovely.. service was attentive and ready for action. we arrived at 5 ish - the dinner area was quite and the bar and reserved areas were busy with xmas cheer. The restaurant entrance was a little difficult to locate but we found it eventually..York way has changed so much (for the better) i grew up and went to school in that area - so pleased to see the transformation of this area.. Would love to go again..

Consistency of food quality used to vary enormously at Rotunda (from delicious to not so good) but with the new menu and kitchen staff it seems to be consistently enjoyable. Kristof the manager is very informed and nice to everyone; a great asset to the company for his understanding of customers, as well as his understanding of wines to the standards of a sommelier. Thank you Kristof and Rotunda.

Vegetable risotto was very good. Drinks arriving after the food and because we we asked what had happened to them is a symptom of poor organisation. The medium rare steak was what any self-respecting French chef would describe as burnt. I think there was a very faint sliver of pink in the middle surrounded by grey.

A November visit and wish we had spotted this place for the Summer. Lovely inner city spot. Good flavors within a reasonable time frame. Comfortable seating. Dined with Vegans and all was good (apart from the hanging beef on display:) ). Definitely an option for a regular visit.

This was a lovely place to celebrate our daughter's birthday with family + friends. Staff noticed our group included vegans + vegetarians so they kindly gave us a table away from the meat display. Staff were very kind about accommodating our multiple special meal requests. Although this is a great meat place it's also good for pescetarians & ok for vegans. A lovely party atmosphere, including live music.

As always this restaurant provides first class service and excellent food. The farm to table offered by Rotunda is exceptional. We have been coming here since it opened and have NEVER been disappointed. Five stars all the way... on this occasion we attended with a client for dinner.... our client was totally impressed and became a fan straight away....

I'd never been to the Rotunda before but it is a great place (in an area without many nice, rather than, noisy places to eat). I would say only one thing--the descriptions of the main courses did not quite give a full picture of what was on offer. A dish whose description one might think was mainly pork turned out to be mainly mussels with some port. And a side dish of wild rice and red pepper was a pepper stuffed with about a table spoon of rice, so not a rice side dish at all. Maybe fuller descriptions of foods would help.

We had a wonderful evening. Almost perfect! The bar was very noisy but much better where we ate. The staff were excellent. The menu is extensive, so difficult to choose but we all had different orders and they were all pretty much 100%. Have already booked to come back and would certainly recommend. I somehow lost my phone and it was found and kept safe. The customer service is also 100% Thank you SO much.

The service was good and the restaurant is convenient if you're seeing something at Kings Place but, to be honest, we were unimpressed with the food. We both found our fish dishes lacking in flavour (oddly, as they're both oily fish, that can be really lovely), and the new potato side dish was pretty awful - again, a bit tasteless and unpleasantly gritty (presumably the spinach was insufficiently, or not at all, washed). We felt there was too much focus on image and presentation, and nothing like enough on the food. I actually gave some feedback on the gritty potatoes, and was interested to see that they were left on the bill. If we were going to KP again, we'd probably look for somewhere else to eat locally.
