About The Rise Restaurant Terrace & Bar
COVID-19: In light of the lockdown roadmap announced during the government's Covid update on 22nd February, The Grand has sadly had to close its doors until further notice.
We have taken the pre-emptive measure of cancelling all Dining reservations up until and including 16th May. Please do keep an eye out on our social media for updates on when we will be able to safely re-open our doors, which we will release following any further government announcements.
The Rise Restaurant, Terrace & Bar offers modern British cuisine, with locally sourced, freshly prepared dishes. The open kitchen and spacious setting creates an immersive and social dining experience for guests.
There's nowhere quite like The Grand when it comes to Afternoon Tea. Indulge in a contemporary take on Britain's long-loved tower of savoury and sweet treats, with optional upgrades to include Prosecco, Champagne, or Hendrick's Gin and Tonic.
Committed to serving the best seasonal and ethically sourced ingredients, Lunch and Dinner see British favourites offered with a Yorkshire twist from our expert chefs. Diners can also expect local beers and ales, a hand-selected wine offering, and signature cocktails.
We have had good experience here previously but our afternoon tea was a little disappointing. We recognised the constraints imposed by COVID restrictions. However we wanted our cocktails as soon as we started our food but had to wait for them until much later because not enough staff at the bar. The food was lovely but portions per person were small. In the past there have been additional sandwiches. This and maybe extra scones would have made a difference to value for money. Most of all, the restaurant was aware that this was a celebration after a COVID limited but very special wedding. Whilst the staff were efficient, yet sadly no attempt was made to add some special atmosphere to the occasion.
Service was fantastic and aligned fo covid rules. Portion sizes little small and everything extra was chargeable. Personally more savory rather than sweet items. Many people left sweets but all savory items could have been eaten twice over.
A very relaxed and comfortable afternoon
staff and food were exceptional a real highlight of our trip thank you
We really enjoyed our evening meal, the service was excellent apart from a couple of things, firstly we were handed a desert menu that had all food stuck to the back of it, Secondly we asked for more water, this did not arrive so we asked again when it came it was sparkling we had asked for still, and lastly I had to ask for a fork to eat my main meal, I know these may be petty things but not good.
Beautiful experience, both the food and the surroundings were perfect. Staff were amazing too
We enjoyed our stay at The Grand in York and dined in The Rise on one of the evenings. The whole experience from start to finish was outstanding! The staff were all very attentive and explained all the Covid restrictions clearly and we felt safe in a warm, welcoming and relaxing environment. The food was first class with us enjoying the Veloute and Scotch Egg to start followed by Rump of Lamb and Fillet of Beef. We wouldn’t hesitate to return to the Grand and The Rise
Tablecloth on the table at breakfast would be nice. As would a side plate for buttered toast.
Christmas dinner was very nice however the evening buffet was appalling. After complaining to the manager I was told it was due to covid however we had stayed for Christmas two years prior and the same buffet menu was served. An absolute disgrace.
Service and staff across the entirety of the grand were amazing, so warm and welcoming
Excellent service and magical atmosphere
Perfect Afternoon Tea
Food was wonderful and the staff was great. Service was exceptionally prompt.
Slow service, average steaks & high prices - but good drinks! A shame the food was not as good as the drinks.
Five star hotel with untrained waiting staff!! afternoon tea. no one came over to us had to catch the eye of someone every time, paying the bill at the end was the worst please please let me pay
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience of dining at the Rise on Christmas Day - except the two of us had identical jokes in our crackers!!!!
Amazing meal and staff. Just what was needed! The decor is brilliant!!
Excellent meal, excellent staff. Lunch menu is a little slim so could have more choice but what I had was great!
Returned for a 2nd time .great hotel everything about it. First class service.
Had a lovely meal in the Rise. Food was excellent, particularly the chicken main dish and the cheesecake. My only issue was that the starters came out before we'd even had any drinks brought to the table. I did notice the bar service was slow to other tables too. Once I mentioned it to the waitress our drinks came right out.
Treated my mum to festive afternoon tea and it was wonderful. The gentleman who waited on us was so lovely
We had two dinners and two breakfasts and to be honest I cannot think of anything derogatory to say. Despite the Covid 19 restrictions, the experience was excellent. Staff were fabulously attentive, courteous and efficient. The food itself was frankly superb. Everything cooked to perfection. Would highly recommend.
Amazing service, delicious food and beautiful surroundings. Perfect
Amazing restaurant and Hotel
Fillet steak was perfect!!
