Great service and fantastic food, lovely evening. Will definitely return
Lovely dinner and great service
A really lovely experience from entering the hotel till leaving
Very friendly and timely service. The halibut was beautifully cooked but lacked equal brilliance in the accompanying vegetables. The side salad was appalling if the Rise’s own measure of using the best locally sourced ingredients is to be applied. Too cold, poorly dressed and insultingly sub-price with the tomatoes past it and so finely diced as to better suit a salsa. The kids brioche bun cheeseburgers ended up as longlife sesame buns with chicken breast. The service was good in that the change in kids meals was checked with us but this surely should have been an upfront communication (as in you must know before service if you have no beef for burgers) and an effort made for it to look a decent meal. Really underwhelming on the kids meal front. Cheese plate was really great. But overall the impression given on website is not matched by the experience.
We were extremely disappointed. To start with there was not a cozy atmosphere quite empty and cold. When the food arrived the coffee was not good and was changed. One of the selection of afternoon tea items was short of a third of the savoury items. The balance between the quantity of savoury to sweet things was wrong. In our opinion you needed to reduce the amount of sweet things and increase the savoury items. Not good value for money.
Lovely atmosphere. Attentive staff. Gorgeous food.
We booked afternoon tea for my Mother's 70th birthday, one of the members of our group is a Vegan. I made the booking online and when completing the form I asked if accommodation could be made for a vegan guest. I received a phone call from a helpful member of staff the day before our visit informing me that this would not be a problem and that although the afternoon tea menu would not be suitable, the lunchtime menu could be easily adapted. When we arrived we informed the staff of the requirement for a vegan meal, the person serving us appeared shocked and we were told that it was not possible to easily adapt the menu. He tried his best and spoke with the chef. When the adapted meal arrived it was simply a baguette with some lettuce and cucumber. This was obviously very disappointing for such a special occasion especially given the assurances that had been provided ahead of our visit.
I came along with a friend and we really enjoyed our champagne afternoon tea which was for my birthday! We fully intend to return same time next year. Would highly recommend!
What can I say; no complaints what so ever, excellent food and excellent service, we will be back.
Excellent service and quality suroundings .
I had afternoon tea with you in December 2 years ago. The food then was far more festive themed. (I turkey and cranberry sandwich, mulled wine cheese cake etc). Yesterday the scones were really quite hard on the outside, and there was nothing that felt festive bar the mince pie. No one explained what the food on the server was when it arrived. I waited a good 15 minutes for my second pot of tea and similar to be able to order my 3 pot. Also a similar amount of time for butter for my 5 year old's scone. The child's tea could have been a lot more child friendly. 1 of the scones could have been replaced with a candy cane or some other sweets, plus the menu said there would be jelly which was not provided with no explanation. To top it all off a £5 service jar was automatically added to my bill. The food was nice enough but at £47 for what was meant to be a really lovely, festive, mother daughter treat I feel I didn't really get value or a festive treat. Left feeling pretty disappointed and in no rush to return
Staff professional and knowledgeable. Dinning room spotless
Very disappointed with afternoon tea. Burnt scones and no clotted cream. Sat down at 3.10 tea came very quickly but was cold by the time food came. We were booked for 3.e0 food came at 3.55 Staff did come back to serve us what was missing but having had several afternoon teas would not recommend this unfortunately it was certainly not value for money
The staff are incredible, it's a lovely setting and the food is delicious. We'll certainly be back.
Really enjoyed a lovely meal with friends, celebrating my husband’s birthday. We did think the meal was quite pricey but the food was very good, the surroundings and atmosphere lovely, and we were staying over as a special treat. I think if we returned to dine at The Rise, it would be for a special event, or treat.
Very disappointing afternoon tea. We have had many and this was by far the worst; terrible value for money, very little savoury food, bread dry and luke warm tea. We have had lovely experiences in other York tea rooms but this was unimpressive. At 34£ inc service charge We expected more. We will not be returning.
We came for afternoon tea for my daughters 10th birthday. While the food was at best average my biggest problem was the service. My husbands umbrella a large wooden handled black umbrella was place by staff in the coat rack on arrival. Upon leaving we found it to have gone. After consulting staff about this they were really not interested and had. I sympathy or help. We were just expected to leave without it after leaving our coats and umbrellas in their care! I would not return here again, it made an expensive afternoon tea a lot more expensive.
I would just like to give a huge thank you to Ozzie who served us in The Rise restaurant for afternoon tea. It was a surprise for my friends birthday & from the moment we arrived it was just fabulous; a birthday card & some table sprinkles, everyone greeted my friend with a happy birthday & Ozzie was just absolutely amazing! Nothing was too much trouble she was incredibly attentive &really made our visit. Thank you so so much we will absolutely be back again. Betty’s has nothing on you!!!
Exceptional service delivered in a beautiful space
Our meal was wonderful, and cooked to perfection, the service was first class. We would highly recommend this restaurant
This was booked for my hen party. The bridesmaid contacted you before hand to ask for the table decorating prior to arrival. This was not done. A waitress then sprinkled a small amount of table confetti when this was requested.
Service slow and poor. had to ask for the bill, no one ever came to ask us. had to wait a long time for tea or coffee.
From the moment we walked in to the restaurant the staff went out of there way to provide an excellent visit. My daughter has a nut allergy and they were attentive to her needs. Sahbi was so attentive, friendly and helpful that I would like to mention him in particular for making our visit one to remember.
Nothing too much trouble from easy booking on line to leaving - a reminder sent a week before with updated menu, special requests dealt with. Atmosphere in restaurant most welcoming, staff put us at ease and catered for all our requests. Afternoon tea was more than sufficient for hunger pangs - fresh sandwiches, delicious cream cakes, scones and pots of tea and on this occasion a glass of bubbly to toast my daughter's graduation. Would definitely recommend.
