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.

This was our first visit to Melton’s restaurant but it certainly won’t be our last. From the moment we arrived we received a very warm and friendly welcome and as we were the only people there we had our choice of table. The restaurant filled...up quickly though and there wasn’t an empty seat, which says a lot. We had opted for the tasting menu together with the wine flight. The food was absolutely delicious and very well presented with lots of elements to each dish. The staff were excellent at describing each course and were very knowledgeable about the dishes and the ingredients. The wines had been paired with each course and they were very good and complemented the food perfectly. We were not rushed at all through our courses and the whole evening was a lovely experience. The restaurant is not at all stuffy, it is just a perfect little place to treat yourself to some exceptional food and wine in a warm friendly atmosphere. We will definitely return.More

We have enjoyed highly memorable meals here at least twice a year for the past few years. Excellent service from warm and knowledgeable staff. And the food is superb, every time. Cannot recommend Melton’s highly enough.

This was our fourth visit to Meltons, my favourite restaurant in York. Brilliant cooking and the dishes are so light and delicious that even with the extra treats provided I didn’t feel too full at the end of the meal. I am intolerant to gluten,...and the restaurant caters so well for this. Most of the dishes can be adapted so I never feel I’m missing out. Friendly, unpretentious with amazing food and wines.More

Love this restaurant. We ate with friends last night and chose the 3 course menu which was outstanding and probably the best dinner out we’ve had this year. The service was also excellent and the atmosphere was buzzing with pre Christmas merriment. Well done Meltons,...we will be back in 2024!More

Been here 4 times now over 18 months making a deliberate break on my way to and from Scotland. Not food just to eat but to appreciate. Some excellent wines (some expensive - over £100). Tasting menu is a delight. Each course has great flavours...and textures. You do not eat it - you savour every morsel. Fine DiningMore

What a find! A small, but intimate restaurant with amazing tasting menu. Worth the trip from the Fylde Coast. The staff were friendly and attentive as well as knowledgeable without being over fussy. The food was out of this world and portions were sizeable. Great...place, shame it’s so far away from where we liveMore

We hadn’t heard of Meltons before but found them on Tripadvisor and are glad we did. Our dinner was most enjoyable with excellent presentation, delicious canapés to start and we both chose the same dishes on the menu - starter of Scallop, main Lamb, dessert...Soufflé. Good wine and lovely staff. Unfortunately we are not local but on our next visit to York we would like to go back to this restaurant.More
