York & Albany
Sunday Lunch.We had a fantastic sunday lunch, the meat was melt in the mouth goodness.
We took the waiter's recommendation for the pudding and that was a revelation too!
Overall Fabulous!19/05/2013 00:00:00Stylish Dining in CamdenWe booked a table for my partner's birthday, and we were all (four in the party) very impressed with the quality of the food - very high-grade gastro-pub style I'd call it - wide and varied wine list - and friendly and helpful staff. Externally the building is an extremely stylish old "inn", deceptively spacious inside with a rear restaurant extension that has a high ceiling and a most attractive Victorian lantern rooflight. The desserts were particularly wonderful but it was difficult to find fault with any of the food!18/05/2013 00:00:00very good food and friendlyvery good food and friendly people, highly recommended!17/05/2013 00:00:00Good food, relaxed atmosphere,Good food, relaxed atmosphere, spacious dining room, attentive service.15/05/2013 00:00:00First Time with RamsayThis was my first time to visit one of Chef Ramsay's restaurants. The food was outstanding. The ceviche of Scottish salmon was incredibly fresh, the pork loin with mash was rich and flavorful, and the rice pudding was perfect. It was everything I had hoped out of one of Chef Ramsay's restaurants. Thanks for a great experience!14/05/2013 00:00:00Went for a birthday dinnerI went on Saturday for a birthday - and mentioned that it was a birthday while booking. We were treated so well by our waiter who clearly knew it was a special occasion. He was so attentive but also gave us our own space. The food was also amazing!
Only issue was the woman who was clearing out the dishes, managed to drop a pile of plates in the middle of the dinnig room causing a bit of a commotion. Most of the customers had their coats hanging off the back of their chairs- I noticed that she dropped the plates behind me, I politely asked if it was my coat that made her drop the plates and she said, "actually, yes." I was quite shocked in the manner she told me, making me feel guilty! Found that quite unprofessional.11/05/2013 00:00:00LovelyWe went and had an early dinner in this restaurant and we were really blown away by the whole experience.
it was really good, greta food, superb staff and just a great eveing out11/05/2013 00:00:00thoroughy recommendthe décor was tasteful , the food gorgeous and the staff really friendly and very much aware of food allergies (eg gluten free), gluten free brought to the table without even requested. Lovely surprise .10/05/2013 00:00:00Very good momentWe had a very good experience, we were glad to eat Chef Ramsay's food; it was delicious.09/05/2013 00:00:00Ab Fab Dining Experienceoutstanding food - salmon to start was fab! Have tried Maze Grill and the York & Albany was just as good - we just love Gordon Ramsey's! the kids (well not so much kids anymore - 1 is 17 & the other 21) just love his restaurants - my daughter specificially requested to go to Gordon's for her 21st Birthday celebrations, well worth the travel as we live over 30 miles away. Try something different on the menu - the unusual combinations just work so well. Can't wait to try another of his restuarants.03/05/2013 00:00:00Team Lunch - weekdayTook the work team to York & Albany. Booked the restaurant through the booking system, but decided we'd rather sit in the bar upon arrival. This was no trouble to the staff, who accommodated us without fuss. The sun was beaming through the large windows at the front of the pub, and the service was excellent. The food was just the thing for a casual lunch, pizzas mostly, with the truffle chips a nice addition. Warmly recommended.30/04/2013 00:00:00Monday at York&AlbanyWe had a pleasure to eat in York&Albany last monday. It was delicious and suprising lunch with every next dish but most valuable was dessert. We have never eaten anything so astonishing. The staff was great too - kind and helpfull. We strongly recommend this place. If You want to eat lovely lunch/brunch and suprise yours taste - must go there. :-)29/04/2013 00:00:00A fab eveningI took my friend for a belated birthday meal....from the minute we walked in we were greeted warmly with smiley faces...the waitress was so nice and despite me telling her my friends birthday was so many months ago she still came out with a cake and candle for my friend...My friend and I loved the cocktails...the food everything....would highly recommend this place....and will be going back soon27/04/2013 00:00:00I want to love it.. but there are certain things that bring the ratings down such as the 'cover charge' of £2 per person for tap water and some bread (nothing special about the bread & butter). Other than that, the ambience is great, the staff is lovely and trying hard, the food is good and the wine selection is excellent - overpriced though, but maybe sometimes its worth it?26/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent meal, a little expensive,Excellent meal, a little expensive, but the quality was outstanding! I would recommend to all my friends.21/04/2013 00:00:00Lovely relaxed atmosphere.Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Great service and food. Perfect location for a post meal stroll in regent park.13/04/2013 00:00:00Fantastic meal in a gorgeous placeI booked at the York & Albany at the request of my teenage son, who is a fan of Gordon Ramsay & wanted to visit one of his restaurants whilst we were in London. This location was convenient to where we were staying and an easy walk from Camden Town tube station. The bar & restaurant was spacious and we were given a large table with a sofa which was more than comfortable for three of us. As a vegetarian, I was thrilled that there was a three-course meal with options for me, starting with the goat cheese tart. My main course, gnocchi with mushrooms & poached egg, literally melted in my mouth and was seriously one of the best meals I've ever had! The vanilla creme brulee with rhubarb ice cream was a fantastic finish! I highly recommend this!13/04/2013 00:00:00Special lunchWent to York & Albany as it was my sons 30th birthday, it certainly didn't disappoint. Staff were very welcoming, food was amazing as you would expect and wasn't as expensive as I'd thought it'd be.12/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent Birthday LunchIt was the first of a few eating occasions during our two day stay in London and was by far the best. The food was excellent and well up to Mr Ramsays reputation.
Staff were friendly, attentive but not 'in your face'. The hot bread was superb.
£90 for lunch for two may be a little more than some people would want to pay, but for a special occassion I would say you get what you pay for, and it was worth every penny.
We will definitely dine here, or in another Ramsey restaurant, again :o)11/04/2013 00:00:00Great start for London weekendWe had an early dinner on Thursday evening. We took set menu with main dish and dessert. Service was very polite and friendly. This was first experience of Gordon Ramsay restaurants for us. My friend and I both enjoyed roasted hanger steak and hot chocolate fondant. The portions were just for us, not too small to leave you hungry and not too large to be stuffed before getting back to hotel. Definately a place for another visit.11/04/2013 00:00:00La Frenchie in LondonBonjour, Bonjour.... pffff Je m'en tape...
Booked the York and Albany as it is one of my favourite restaurant in London - the food is always delicious with a good selection of wine...
I took a beautiful french girl her on a "date" and she really had a good time - I think a great dating venue...
The service was excellent and had some good banter with the waiting staff...
Would definitely go back....
Thanks again09/04/2013 00:00:00flavors and welcomevery happy for this wonderful experience, a journey into the world of flavors. good kitchen and good reception, thanks to a talented chef and a floor manager helpful, professional and very nice.09/04/2013 00:00:00Hidden JewelThis restaurant never disappoints. I had a group with unusual food intolerances. The waiter and the chef handled it perfectly and created a spectacular experience. I can'd01/04/2013 00:00:00Amazing loved it great tastingAmazing loved it great tasting food and attentive service - def will be coming back!29/03/2013 00:00:00Lunch at York and AlbanyIt was a very enjoyable lunch at the York and Albany. The food was nicely done and the TT offer was great value for money. Impeccable service too.29/03/2013 00:00:00Excellent food with great serviceI took my fiancé here for her birthday. She absolutely loved the food and the service was friendly and courteous. Plenty of time between courses and we didn't feel like we were being hurried so that they could flip the table. Would highly reccomend29/03/2013 00:00:00Gordon Gordon Gordon...Let me start by saying this, I was just visiting London for a week and reserved tables at several restaurants, including London's finest, Dinner by Heston Blumenthol, to try out UK's top food scene. By far I enjoyed York & Albany the most. The food was nothing like I had tasted before, nothing like I had seen before and so inventive, it was a complete experience. I would easily recommend it to everyone. I had lunch there so would definitely recommend that.
To be honest, I feared that these top tier restaurants would serve food that would be too sophisticated for a simple man's taste buds and hence one does not understand the food. At York & Albany, one can tell its simple, yet nothing you have tasted before and it is true genius.28/03/2013 00:00:00sublime establishmentI just moved in down the road from the York & Albany and it's a staple in my daily life to be honest. I get coffees for take away when I'm walking my dog, pop into the bar for a drink from time to time, and have had entertained guests for dinner several times. In general I would say it's charming, upscale, but still, in my opinion, a neighborhood gathering spot in the arcadian shadows of Regents Park; which, is a difficult amalgam to produce.28/03/2013 00:00:00Excellent food and serviceGreat menu and the food was excellent. Our waitress was perfect. Overall, wonderful meal in a warm cosy ambiance.25/03/2013 00:00:00Surpisingly excellent!We booked this because of it's proximity to the Jazz Cafe. We had a special offer of a 3 course meal for £25 including a glass of wine. I have to say that the food here was absolutely outstanding. We had the Gnocchi which was in my husband's opinion (who's a Gnocchi connoisseur) right up there with the very best he's had. And as for the Orange Ice Cream I could go back today for that alone. We went with friends who were so utterly impressed with the quality of the food on offer. The staff were very friendly and accommodating which just added to the evening. We will definitely go back for more.22/03/2013 00:00:00OkThe thing when you go to such a recommended restaurant is that you get your hopes up. The food was good, not great. It didn't make me want to eat more and it didn't make me wonder how the dish was made. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad and I had a good time, but when going to such a restaurant and paying these prices you want to be blown away and not have a "good" experience.17/03/2013 00:00:00Great all roundGreat food, great ambience & great service. Staff very accommodating. Great atmosphere would definately recommend.10/03/2013 00:00:00Great place for a birthday treatIt was my elderly mothers birthday, we all had lovely food (fish portions rather small), staff had wonderful sense of humour and were most professional. Rather noisy when there was back ground music. Lively and fun with a sense of occasion.09/03/2013 00:00:00Birthday lunch in London.We were six people flying in from Norway for a birthday lunch. We preordered table and birthdaycake. The service was great, we had a lovely french vaitor who made sure we had a great time. The food were excellent. We all had three cors meal and Italian red wine. We payed about 450-500 Nkr pr pers.09/03/2013 00:00:00Mexicans in York & AlbanyWe really enjoyed having dinner at York & Albany, specially after watching Ramsay's TV shows for over a year! I loved the liver appetizer.06/03/2013 00:00:00Lovely restaurantA lovely restaurant. We had dinner there on our 1st wedding anniversary. Great staff and service. The food was very good without being too pricey.26/02/2013 00:00:00Great foodCame to this restaurant twice - once for business purposes and once with friends. The food was delicious both times, service was friendly, the restaurant wasn't overcrowded (we came at 2 pm both times). Pleasant decor and atmosphere - stylish but not overly formal. It's not the cheapest place though!24/02/2013 00:00:00Excellent food/over eager serviceThe York & Albany is a fantastic venue for food and drink. The food literally melts in the mouth, the ambience is fantastic upstairs (not so great downstairs)... only complaint really is that the waitress was very over-eager, continually topped up our drinks from the bottle of wine on our table (kind of felt like once that was gone we were expected to order more) Otherwise, fantastic.16/02/2013 00:00:00York and Albany- Sat 16thI spent a very enjoyable 9 hours here on Saturday after a delicious lunch turned into an afternoon of just as delicious cocktails. The service was impeccable- especially Magda- and the food was great. Only criticism was that we both agreed that the Salt and Pepper Squid should come with some sort of garlic/mayp type dip. (Maybe we're not that classy though!)
Would definitely recommend for a special afternoon in a smart yet relaxed atmosphere.16/02/2013 00:00:00Great serviceI hadaccidentally booked for Sunday instead of the intended Saturday but the hostess was really nice about it and found us a table.
The food was great, and brilliant value if you eat off ofthe ste menu. The Eton mess was dreamy.
The waiter was a little slow and disconnected but as we were in no rush it didnt really worry us.16/02/2013 00:00:00I really like this restaurant.I really like this restaurant. Great service and fine cuisine made me to return again and again!16/02/2013 00:00:00Amazing food and serviceAmazing food and service in a laid back, no fuss kind of atmosphere. Reasonable range of wine prices and deserts were simply incredible.15/02/2013 00:00:00Very good first impression,Very good first impression, staff nice, polite, well experienced, lovely and very helpful.

Thank you14/02/2013 00:00:00nice and tasty foodthe food was creative, sexy and tasty. enjoyed and would be vey glad to be a regular costumer of york and albany!
is not cheap (dinner menu) but the relation price-quality is very honest.14/02/2013 00:00:00pub roastgreat food, nice ambience if you request a table in the pub area at the front of house, rather than the much busier and hectic back are where most of the dining tables are situated, all very cramped and too cosy, and noisy.
The food is simply excellent....except the creamed horseradish, it's just far too mild, hardly any heat in it at all. We asked for a stronger portion, but waiter struggled to get one and the one that did come back was still far too mild. But, everything else was incredible. Including the Bloody Mary's to start with. I have been twice for sunday roast, I will go again without doubt.26/01/2013 16:00:00Katie our Server sets the Tone!From the moment we were sat at our table by the window as we had requested at booking, and then greeted by our lovely, personable and attentive server, Katie, we were in for a fantastic evening of terific food and impeccable service. Gordon the bartender even came over to have a most amiable chat and this, along with a terrific Burns Night meal, ensured that we will return!24/01/2013 16:00:00Welcoming and relaxed serviceLunched here with a friend and the service was not intrusive we had plenty of time to chat between courses ( out of choice)
We had the special lunch in aid of help the heroes, simple and tasty. The coq a leekie soup was the bast ever
House merlot smooth and fruity24/01/2013 16:00:00Good for brunchWent for Sunday brunch, seated right by the window in the back (worth asking for it if you make a reservation). Our food was excellent, the service was very good. The restaurant is very pretty, feels upscale but not stuffy. Recommend if you're looking for a leisurely Sunday lunch in a pampered, relaxed atmosphere. Added benefit of Regent's Park right outside the restaurant for a post-brunch walk!19/01/2013 16:00:00Very nice mealWe had Sunday dinner at York and Albany. It was a very nice meal, excellent cooked meat, and lovely sidedishes. The dessert was really good.
