Superb atmosphere, great service and food was really good. Actually fantastic with food allergies, really prepared and willing to advise you. One of the first places to really take it seriously and not just protecting themselves. Well done guys.Prices are very reasonable for what you get. Definitely a place to visit.

This venue looks the part it's clean, modern and a bit industrial. The centre of the venue is a bar with a great set of stairs the lead up to the rest rooms. The food itself is great I enjoyed the garlic prawns, probably more I will be longing to have them again. I then went on to have the rib eye steak rare with the buttery mash and peppercorn sauce. This was cooked as requested and was good. Sadly this venue was let down by its service, the service was exactly that just service. There was no spark and people working to make their customers feel special. The service wasn't bad though just nothing to shout about. Otherwise great venue if not a little bit pricey. Would go again though.

One of the best steakhouses my partner and I have been to. Modern but cosy, with great atmosphere, quick service and amazing food. Our waiter was genuinely very friendly and full of energy. Definitely added to the perfect experience. Sorry I didn't catch his name to give him a well deserved shout out. I'm not local but would definitely make a visit back to York just to go back to this restaurant. I definite recommendation!
