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

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...

We visited Meltons recently on a Saturday evening, we were on the waiting list and were delighted when Meltons rang us to say a table was available. Fantastic food. Loved the little canapés before our meal. Great presentation and great service. All in all an evening to remember. Would definitely recommend and will be returning. Thanks Meltons

Great restaurant just outside the centre of York, we had the tasting menu and were very impressed particulary with the venison. Very attentive staff, great wine and delicious food. Only a 15 minute walk from the centre of York and well worth the walk!

We booked dinner after reading reviews. We both had the taster menu with the taster wines. Everything was amazing, the food, wine and service. We will definitely visit again.
