Had a lovely Sunday lunch for our daughters birthday. Very attentive staff
Efficient booking procedure - staff went above & beyond to ensure that my friends enjoyed their birthday celebration - very relaxed & delicious food!
Really delicious tapas. Restaurant is lovely and open with quite a nice atmosphere - once busy. The service was fine - could have been more attentive . A nice way to spend an afternoon.
Excellent food and service
Lovely, helpful staff and excellent food.
I am afraid to say, Afternoon Tea in what appeared to be a lack-lustre dining room was not very pleasant. I cannot fault the food or the staff. Though even this did not make up for the lack of ambiance and lack of quaintness
When we dined in The Rise we was only given the option of tapas, which was fine for me but my husband is not a fan and would have preferred the choice to sellect a main meal. Having said that, the food was excellent. The waiter forgot to submit our dessert order; so we had an extended wait, however, we enjoyed watching the chefs create the tapas meals which has to be said was entertaining in a good way.
We ate in The Rise two nights running during our stay at The Grand. On each occasion the staff were extremely friendly and efficient. The food was delicious! Very different and an excellent choice. The service was good and we didn’t feel at all rushed. Overall we have had two most enjoyable evenings and hope to return again at sometime. Thank you and well done to all the staff.
Lovely afternoon tea, didn’t finish it all and was able to take the delicious cakes home for later! It was a special treat as a present and would do again.
Beautiful food , we went for the chefs selection and it did not disappoint. The live music is a really nice touch too.
A lovely anniversary evening
Really poor service. Slow and inattentive staff. Food was cold and unimpressive. Stop trying to be too clever and do the basics right!
I would not choose to book this restaurant again for Christmas dinner. We all found the food basic, bland, warm and not worth the £99 price tag. I understand that the price reflects the day of year and was more than happy to pay for the meal and a stay in the hotel. The menu itself was three courses and gave a selection of three choices per course. 1 meat, 1 fish and 1 vegetation. The starter and desserts I found to be OK, nothing amazing just OK. The most simple course of all was the traditional turkey main and it was awful. The ’roast’ potatoes were of a light golden beige not roasted the way you would expect. What I believed to be the stuffing was a dry thin slice the texture of a dried chorizo sausage. The meal was a disappointment and worse than a Toby Carvery
Beautiful aftenoon tea. Will definitely be back!
Good evening meal from the market menu. Christmas lunch average
The staff were aware that this was a 37th anniversary treat and made us feel very special including a card from all the staff. An excellent meal with a relaxed atmosphere.
We opted for the chef's tasting menu, which was OK but we have had much better food for the same money in other fine dining establishments. One caveat to this review is that we wanted to visit a number of other establishments in York on the date of our visit, but this was the only one open on a Monday. The actual dining environment is extraordinary as described, but the quality of the food was somewhat lacking; other than a delicious lamb dish, I thought the rest of the food was rather mediocre. Another minor point was that I don't particularly feel that the staff did enough to 'sell the food' that they brought to our table; in some instances, they merely just placed a dish on our table without informing us what it was, leaving us to figure out what it was. I was also actively warned away from ordering a Negroni as the barman was likely not to be able to make it, even though they stated on the menu that they could make any traditional cocktail even if it weren't on their list. That being said, we were more than happy with the effort and service from the staff especially as they went the extra mile for our anniversary, which helped to redeem our experience slightly.
I cannot fault the service and standards in The Rise. My wife was made to feel so special on her birthday which was great to see. The food was excellent and the coffee hot. Spotless restaurant with superb advice and recommendations in coffee selection. Faultless no other word for it.
Delicious afternoon tea , especially the warm scones. Slight mix up when my friend asked for different sandwiches and thecwrong ones arrived but the lovely waitress sorted it out and a plate of plain ham sandwiches quickly arrived. We were a bit disconcerted to find 12 1/2 % added to the bill for a service charge . We would have been happy to leave a tip ...we hope that ALL of the service charge goes to the staff ....we were hurrying for our train or we would have raised this point at the time .
Lovely food very attentive staff and fantastic atmosphere.
Excellent food with delicious flavour.
We enjoyed the new style very much. The food came at appropriated intervals, was delicious, hot and a new experience. I have only marked down for 'atmosphere' as at time we ate there weren't many people in restaurant and it is quite a large room to fill. Overall, excellent.
We had Afternoon tea and weee disappointed with the crockery in the restaurant we expected china plates and teacups and the tea itself was ok but the patisseries were quite disappointing , not unusual or special in any way ie a cupcake? Also when we left the concierge walked straight across our path to his desk without a word or even opening the main doors for us....not what we wound expect in a five star hotel
The food was mainly very good as was the service. However, there were people in our group (of six) who didn’t receive any of their small plates until 15/20 minutes after the rest of us had started. We weren’t made aware of this possible delay when ordering and discussed this with the kitchen on the night. It took the edge of what could’ve been a great experience, as did not being able to order a taxi home after we had informed them that we would require one for the end of our meal. In a 5* venue it’s the little things that make a big difference.
This was our first and last visit to the Rise... we had to wait over 20 minutes before we even got a drink (which I had to ask for) and then when it finally arrived was wrong.... we were then informed that we needed to wait 15 minutes before we could order our food, the restaurant was probably only one third full?!? The wait for the food was far too long (although on a plus when the dishes did arrive they were very nice) then to top it off a dish was also forgotten from our order. A disappointment.
