We had the tasting menu , £45 for 5 courses, all of which was very good - venison was excellent. We also had the wine flight, £25 for 5 glasses, which was very well explained with each food course. All in all, a very nice venue, excellent service, so an enjoyable night.

My husband and I have just had the most amazing lunch at Meltons. Every course was truly scrumptious with some lovely extras thrown into the mix like a delicious amuse Bouche of celariac soup and warm bread plus free coffee and petit fours. The service was efficient and friendly creating a lovely atmosphere. I loved the fact that the set... More

We had a meal for 4 on a weekend and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Limited vegetarian options on the menu but no doubt they will do something on request. The huge selection of wine was very impressive. The service was swift and courteous and the only downside was a rowdy table near us - too... More

We visited on a Saturday evening. The scallop starter was very good and the venison and hake entrees were excellent. Service was very attentive as well. I would highly recommend!

Melton's is a stunningly beautiful restaurant. We were greeted by its friendly staff. The restaurant is relaxed with a beautiful ambience. It is outside central York so tucked away from the hustle, bustle of the city. We chose the Pigeon Wellington & Beetroot for starters both of which were gorgeous & full of flavour, but before they were brought out... More

Came here with friends. We were shown to our table by a nice attentive waitress drinks order was taken. I couldn't believe they had no blended scotch whisky, the waitress suggested Jack Daniel's, or Canadian club NOT WHISKY! a bit of staff training is required here. We were given plenty of time to look over the menu. both my wife... More

We chose the tasting menu with wine which, given how much we've paid for such experiences before, was excellent value. The manager talked us through the menu & wines knowledgeably and with a clear passion for her job. We were downstairs and it's not very big so booking is really essential. The place has a nice friendly atmosphere and all... More

Usually a fail-safe choice for a special family outing but we were disappointed with this visit. The room upstairs lacks atmosphere: - If you do book, try downstairs. Too few diners in a small space upstiars -we felt our conversation wasn't private. The Christmas menu is disappointing. We wouldn't recommend anything we ate. The goose in particular was tough, so...
