Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very good, but a bit expensive, and the "optionnal" service charged on the bill at the end of the dinner is not that much appreciated...

Outstanding food and the service from Katie and the rest of the staff was exceptional. Had never been to this kind of place before but will definitely be returning one day.

We visited this restaurant "off the cuff" tonight as we hadn't booked. Unless you can eat £40 worth of meat and salad that's what you're getting charged per head. There is an "optional" 10% service charge which is automatically added to your bill and taken...off... so make sure you check before you pay. We always leave a tip that rates the service we receive...however that should be up to the customer and not taken automatically.More

Me and my fiance came here when we visited york recently for valentines day. Everything about this place is perfect - from the staff, to the big choice of food at the salad bar, to the meat that comes around and the unlimited peppercorn sauce....The meat is cooked perfectly in my opinion (medium rare) but they will accommodate if you ask. The fries were also really crispy outside and fluffy inside. I can't complain about anything. The staff are so quick to come over and ask if you want more drinks or more sauce and fries. You can go up as many times as you like to the salad bar and there's lots of choice (veg, fish, salad bits, sushi, potatoes, rice and creamy garlic mushrooms which were my personal fave). I'd 100% reccomend, you won't be disappointed. They were very busy as it was valentines day but the staff explained how things worked there really quickly and checked in frequently if we needed more drinks. If you visit york, make this one of your evening meals, you won't regret it!More

Went for Valentine’s Day and the staff were very inviting and welcoming, helped to explain the processes of the restaurant which was very helpful and the food was amazing, for £40 a person there was a wide selection of high quality steak and other meats...and a very delicious salad and cold meat bar, definitely would recommend!More

This place is great, if your looking for overpriced cheap food. The moment we walked through the door some guy in a blazer seemed to be looking down my dress. We got our meat. It was cheap and not so cheerful, i’ve had bad stomach...since. The only good points were the salad bar was delicious….. and our server kiera was very good! unfortunately the good points can’t weigh out the bad in this spot, not when your initial reaction is to some guy looking down your dress. i feel sorry for the staff that are there due to the fact their pervy manager has given them all a bad rep. I won’t be going back unfortunately ruined mine and my partners valentine’s day, to the point i had to ask my server to keep the pervy guy in a blazer away due to feeling uncomfortable !!!i the other manager did understand and didn’t charge us. but that is not what was significant in the situation…… valentine’s day ruined 2024 thanks to Rio. Will be going to Tomahawk next time. Extremely dissapointing, even the cocktails were poor, practically a full cup of ice that soaks up all your drink. Horrendous doesn’t really cover it.More

The best place in York you can only go to once. Delicious food and incredible staff makes this place a must-see for anyone in the area. Luke, our server, was friendly, funny and always there when we wanted him. Only problem me and my Dad...had when we went is that the servers keep bringing more food to your table, and they don't stop until you say, meaning this place causes food comas like you wouldn't believe.More
