The Living Room - York
Fabulous!!!!It's our favourite restaurant in York so far!
Service, ambience, cocktails, people all is amazing! Best French Martini coctail ever especially raspberry one...mmm! Special thanks to Joe!! He such a star, best waiter ever!! Attentive, positive, polite!! He made our night!!
Special thanks to a fantastic sheff, It was a very pleasent surprise of a food concept changes made by him..Presentation is unbelievably good! Great to have more "fusion" options rather than just classics..Prawn coctail, Asian Monkfish, scallops, and even cod and chips are just perfection!!
Thank you so much

When asked for extra gravy was brought another jug within mins and the yorkshire pudding would rival any mothers (sorry mum but it was excellent) it stood out as it was huge!

We were sat over looking the river which was very romantic.
We ordered garlic & herb mushrooms on tast for starter, which was delicious. I had the venison shepherds pie and my husband had the duck. Both meals which were exsquisite. For dessert we both had the chocolate truffle cake which was amazing. During the meal we also ordered a cocktail, a bottle of corona and a pint of Heineken. The total bill for our meal was around £65 which for a full 3 course meal and drinks of this quality is a very fair price.
Our server was Gemma and she was fantastic, we couldn't fault her service at all. I would definitely return and reccommend to anyone!16/03/2013 00:00:00must go5 of us had a weekend away in York. We picked the Living Room at random and lucky for us that we did. From the minute we arrived we felt very looked after, the staff were so helpful but very discrete. The food was fabulous, I had possibly the best fish and chips I have ever eaten. For a starter and main each, a couple of bottles of wine and service it was £32 each.16/03/2013 00:00:00A lovely place where you canA lovely place where you can get dressed up. Delicious food although not the cheapest place to eat it is great for a treat or special occasion. We went on a Saturday night and they had a great singer. Cocktails were fab. Would highly recommend it16/03/2013 00:00:00great serviceThe overall meal was great, cocktails are amazing but a bit expensive, worth the effort for a special occasion.15/03/2013 00:00:00LITTLE GEMFANTASTIC FROM START TO FINISH. SERVICE, FOOD, ATMOSPHERE EVERYTHING WAS BETTER THAN ANTICIPATED10/03/2013 00:00:00Living Room YorkWe went to the lIving Room for Mothers Day. The menu was 3 courses for £17 which was excellent value for money. The Living Room is really nice with lovely food. We have been there several times and have never been disappointed.10/03/2013 00:00:00LovelySomething a bit more special then the usual pub grub. Nice atmosphere, great service and lovely food. Vegetarian meal was different from what is usually on offer in pubs and restaurants01/03/2013 00:00:00Fabulous!We came for drinks one afternoon - tried a few cocktails on their new menu - then booked for dinner the next night. We were not disappointed. The foos and service were great - even though they looked pretty busy (it was a Friday night). Thoroughly enjoyed it!01/03/2013 00:00:00Best anniversary mealI was worried that the meal would be far too expensive but considering the high quality of food, the ambience of the restaurant and the amount of food that we had, it was surprisingly cheap! A starter to share, 2 gorgeous mains and a lovely bottle of wine for under £40. It was one of the best meals I have ever eaten and the piano player and candles made the meal very romantic and one that we'll never forget. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone if you're looking for somewhere a bit special.28/02/2013 00:00:00Great dinner with fantastic serviceMy sister and I took my mum here for dinner and we had a fantastic evening, just what we wanted. We had a good table and the ambience is great, feels private but definitely not neglected. The staff we encountered were engaging, knowlegeable, accomodating, attentive and not intrusive at all. The food we all really enjoyed although perhaps I picked wrong with the seabass (food envy maybe of the other dishes) but picked perfect on the pudding! Thank you for a very enjoyable evening, would go again for a variety of reasons.24/02/2013 00:00:00Very goodHad a great evening. Meal and staff were great. Recommend this restaurant.23/02/2013 00:00:00Lovely Living RoomWhen we arrived we were told that our table was not ready and would we be prepared to wait. We said we would and were shown to a booth. % minutes later the lady came back appologising that the party ahead of us were taking a long time and asked if she could get us some drinks. We ended up waiting about 20 minutes but this was not a problem as the staff looked after us. When we got our table the waitress who looked after us was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. We had a fantastic meal and a great time. I would have given it 6 stars but the ratings only go up to 5. We will be going there again the next time we stay in York.23/02/2013 00:00:00The experience was excellentThe experience was excellent from start to finish. The staff were attentive and the meal was delicious.

Staff and food great live musci great all round had a great night would definetly go again if ever in york16/02/2013 00:00:00Pre Theatre MealWe booked a table for The Living Room in York. The whole place was buzzing, yet we enjoyed a quite meal at a table overlooking the river. The service was excellent and the waitress was very informative about the dishes, drinks etc.
We enjoyed a cocktail from the bar - an Emerald City. Looking forward to the next time we are in York to try a different one!16/02/2013 00:00:00Fantastic service and atmosphereWe visited the Living Room on Valentines day for an evening meal and were thoroughly impressed. Unusually for a night like this, we dined as a group of four but this was at no detriment to the service we received. All the food was great and the cocktails we ordered were all fantastic. The mood in the restaurant was set perfectly and the waitress that looked after us was very friendly and attentive. There was a set menu on for the evening which limited choice on food a little but we knew this before going in. The only negative for us was that there was no live music as advertised. To be honest it was one of the main reasons we opted to book the Living Room over other York restaurants, so this was disappointing. Overall very good though.14/02/2013 00:00:00We really enjoyed our experienceWe really enjoyed our experience at the Living room. The food, service and atmosphere was excellent. We would highly recommend this place.09/02/2013 00:00:00Happy LadiesWe had dinner on Saturday 9th February, we all have different, tastes, idea of value for money etc and we all agreed it was one of the best all round dining experiences we have had to date. The menu catered for for our vegitarian, fassy eater and the 'foodies'. The staff were bery friendly and attentive and we would definitely go back and recommend 100%. Already planning our next weekend away in Manchester to try the Living Room there.09/02/2013 00:00:00Lovely meal and viewBooked online and asked for river view table which we got.

It was snow when we went, but in summer on the terrace over the river, a very good dinning experience.24/01/2013 16:00:00A Great Night Out2 of us dined at the Living Room York on 25th Jan. It's a really attractive place to be; the bar area was really busy and had a great atmosphere, really reasonable prices too. Dining room was really nice, busy but had a nice buzz about it. Food was really nice, waiting staff very friendly and you could tell that it was a very personal place as lots of people who came in seemed to know other people and this gave it a very friendly feel. There was a band playing too, which were so good, that at first we thought there was a cd playing! Dinner was great value for money as we had a starter, main, dessert, wine and coffee and spent well under £100. Overall - excellent value for money and next time we are in York we will visit again.24/01/2013 16:00:00Sunday Lunch TreatWe have dined here many times and the food & service were as good as ever. We decided to take the kids for Sunday lunch as we had the January discount voucher but were a bit nervous about taking them in. However we had no need to worry, the kids loved it and we're made to feel more than welcome. There were quite a few families doing the same. The food was lovely and the service was excellent. We were given a table overlook the river which was nice as. The kids loved watching the ducks and geese amidst the snowfall.19/01/2013 16:00:00Brilliant ExperienceCame to this restaurant in the evening time (7pm) for my birthday with my girlfriend and it was an amazing experience. We had a window table looking over the river in York and the choice of food available was great. We had a 3 course meal and each dish was so good that me and my girlfriend ended up sharing each course between the two of us. The service was friendly and the overall meal was good value for the excellent quality of food.
I would highly recommend this restaurant for anybody looking for good quality of food and an excellent overall dining experience.18/01/2013 16:00:00birthday mealWe went to the living room for a friends 30th. I booked online and asked if they'd be able to do anything special but didn't hear anything. On arrival we were seated over looking the river and my friend was brought a cocktail as a special treat which was really great they'd taken my request on. The service was exceptional, very attentive and approachable staff. Even though the restaurant was full, the wait for food was not long. It was beautifully presented and tasted divine! Overall our experience was enough to have us talking about it all weekend! Definitely recommended and will returning in the very near future!18/01/2013 16:00:00Two satisfied diners!My wife and I visit the Living Room about twice a year. January is when we recieve our 50% off vouchers, so we treat ourselves to lift our dampened January spirits. We regularly eat out in York, though our preferred type of restuarant is usually local independants. Chains just don't do it for us. The Living room is different though. It has always been a cut above the other chains, Last Friday, on our visit, we noticed a definite improvement. The staff were quick off the mark, polite, efficient and not in your face. I ordered the black forest ham starter, which was delicious, followed by the duck breast. Beautiful presentation and great flavours. Liz had the scallops with black pudding followed by monkfish. A great experience overall.17/01/2013 16:00:00Excellent valueexcellent value for money with 50% off voucher. We did wait a while for our food but were kept up to date and staff were polite and apologetic.15/01/2013 16:00:00A very enjoyable eveningWe dined using the 50% off food voucher in January and it appeared most other tables were doing the same!
Great food, service and atmosphere - would definitely go back when the voucher expires although probably more for a special occasion since it is a little more expensive than other restaurants.09/01/2013 16:00:0050% off voucher amazing. Food50% off voucher amazing. Food choice very good. Service jolly but we never did get that jug of water! Worked well as a family outing29/12/2012 16:00:00Great dining with friendsNo problems with arriving early, spacious table not overlooked by others, very efficient service all the way through. Food was outstanding to good: the fillet steak was slightly overcooked but we are used to ordering 'a point' in France. Beer battered prawns slightly disappointing as the wasabi has been thinned down to a mayonnaise rather than a full blown smidgen of green paste. Having said that, our invited friends said that the sharing deli platter, three way pork, and beef and ale pie were the best meals they had eaten all year. Wine was excellent, reasonably priced and the prosecco aperitifs were very good value, the rose was exceptionally tasteful. Overall, a great night with great service and we will, of course, be returning soon.28/12/2012 16:00:00WonderfulWe booked for Saturday night, the food was wonderful, the service was more so. The waitress was so informative, knew all the ingredients. I am sorry I didn't get the young ladies name as she does deserve a special mention. I had a sparkling Strawberry Bliss drink too, seems expensive but it was gorgeous and I am definately worth it.28/12/2012 16:00:00Post Christmas LunchThis restaurant provided excellent service for a diverse party of nine including a young child. They gave us a large table in a quiet area where our party size did not impinge on other diners. The well prepared food was served with relaxed but helpful and efficient service. Well Done!28/12/2012 16:00:00The restaurant has a variedThe restaurant has a varied and interesting menu. Love the edamame beans and the moules mariniere were excellent. service is efficient and attentive. Tables aren't too close together and one doesn't have to walk up or down flights of steps to find the loos. Have always had a good experience and will continue to frequent The Living Room.18/12/2012 16:00:00
