We were very impressed with the standard of service that was put at our disposal. As a result of this we had a most enjoyable stay.
The selection of food for the afternoon tea was very good, although two of my sandwiches the bread had started to go a little dry. The warm scones are a lovely touch. At the time of our tea there was a large corporate group in on the other side of the restaurant. There was cheering and clapping and although we didn’t find this a problem I know the couple next to us complained. Trevor, our waiter was very attentive and friendly. Thank you
Whilst we enjoyed the afternoon tea, the service was disappointing. This was compounded by the pre-added service fee and having to ask for our change. This is not something to be expected but rather earned. When attending afternoon tea in similar price ranges previously the service has been impeccable (Betty's being one which springs to mind), the service at The Rise was nowhere near that. This is disappointing as The Grand was lovely, The Rise looked beautiful and the concierge in the hotel proper was excellent, what a shame that standard didn't extend beyond the lobby.
Brilliant afternoon tea for my wife’s birthday Superb service and well balanced choice of food
Had a very enjoyable meal and service was good. Left what I thought was a good tip ie over 15%. However, when presented with the bill the following morning was astounded to find I had also been change £11 service change approximately 9%. Wonder if I had included tip on bill would service charge been applied to tip as well as cost of food and drink. Take note if you decide to eat there.
When we arrived we were left about 15 minutes before someone came to take our order. Not 5 star service or atmosphere. Afternoon tea was poor compared to similar priced ones we have done before.
Excellent in all areas - staff were particularly helpful
Lovely afternoon had with. Y niece who wS truly treatedime a princess 👸
Service of all staff is exemplary. Main course food was delicious, with only the dessert being slightly disappointing; it was good indeed but not heaven on a plate, as I'd hoped.
We were surprised by how small the restaurant was but the service was first class as was the food . Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes good food and great service.
I am so sad to write this but I was so disappointed on Saturday. My previous afternoon tea experiences were in Hudson's and I assumed The Rise would be an equally good experience. How wrong. There was no atmosphere in The Rise, the service was barely average, my gin was spilt into the saucer and I had to ask for a clean saucer, no one checked on us, pmates not cleared away, the food was average. The sandwhiches had very little filling and little taste. The scones were tiny, and only the chocolate cake was anything exciting. To make matters worse, we booked the gin and tonic afternoon tea, be careful it's ful of cranberry, Ineither of us would pick a cranberry drink but we were given no say in having this added to the drink.I've spent years telling people coming to York that The Grand was the place to go for afternoon tea, not Bettys. Bit im afraid ill not be sayng that again. Really really sad. It was not a 5 star experience at all.
Fabulous afternoon tea!
We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience at The Rise. The restaurant is light and airy. The staff were pleasant, informative and obviously proud to be part of the team The food was a delight. We particularly enjoyed the nasturtium ceasar , the strawberries and cream and the lamb. We'll definitely book again next time we're in York.
Lovely atmosphere, staff welcoming, wonderful afternoon tea
The food and drinks were lovely but there was not enough sandwiches! Drinks took a long time to be served - over 20 minutes from ordering.
cooked to perfection.superb service
Had afternoon tea which was very good but bit too much sweat stuff for me, that I think is every afternoon tea though not just there, had drinks later on and where very good and service was great
My friend and I had a great time with our afternoon tea. This was a belated 60th birthday treat for myself from family and what a good choice! The atmosphere was lovely with gentle music playing in the background. The service was excellent and everyone was polite and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The cakes were fantastic , particularly the mango! I would recommend to others without hesitation.
I treated my mum to afternoon tea at the Grand and we had a lovely time. The food was great and the staff were lovely.
