Our server was incredible!
We had 3 meals at The Rise, afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast. For all three, the food and service was superb. Our stay at the Grand was a special treat and the experience at the Rise only added to that.
Great service from the waiter, really attentive and personable
Fabulous in everyway! Will certainly be returning
I have put 3 stars for the atmosphere as my wife and I really do not like jazz, which was playing in the background. In fact we also had to leave the bar later on the same day for the same reason. Perhaps a better or mixed selection of music could be provided. It was quite expensive for what amounts to a few small sandwiches and some fancy cakes, but having said that the food was good and the staff were friendly and efficient.
A very warm professional greeting.plenty of staff who we're very attentive. The food was first class .a very enjoyable experience. We would certainly go back.
Well worth the 11 month wait. Great experience. Highly recommended.
unfortunately with York going into tier 2 the day before our booking ,we needed to sit outside which we were fully aware of and I was informed that there were heaters. However there was only one that had apparently run out of gas! We were provided with blankets but I would expect in these current climes that a 5* hotel would have made some provision for outdoor dining? Service was good and very pleasant staff. We would suggest considering slightly more savoury items and fewer sweet for the afternoon tea but everything was very tasty and I'm still eating cakes today
I was there for birthday and hen celebration it was better than we expected. From keeping it a secret from my friend what i had plan, staff at spa reception made it special. All staff i spoke with there manager and compliment were offered. Andrea at reception were amazing and helpful and so was trevor. Nigel was great lovely personality and direction given on places to visit Def be back thank you
Amazing food and service, thank you! Just wish we could have been given a choice of table, and the music was a bit loud at times. Apart from that, we had a lovely evening thank you!!
Had a lovely time and accommodated our request to sit in a quieter area. Only negative was the steak undercooked but staff couldn’t be any more apologetic. Would recommend a larger selection of rose wine.
The afternoon tea was lovely, the lemon cake was a bit dry but otherwise cakes very nice. Being a bit picky but the restaurant wasn’t busy with only two other tables when we arrived but we were sat right in the entrance way, I’m not sure why the tables further into the restaurant or near the windows weren’t used? Otherwise it was very pleasant and we would defiantly return.
Very good food and service.
Great service and quality
Had a great evening from start to finish. Food was outstanding and the service was great. No complaints whatsoever. Despite the current conditions, we were made welcome by all staff. Big thanks to all involved from the Kitchen to the front of house.
Fantastic service from start to finish. Would highly recommend afternoon tea.
Would have preferred more sandwiches and less cake. Sandwiches are very nice but not enough. Cakes are very sweet, too sikly!
Lovely food will be back
Excellent service and a first class afternoon tea, thank you.
Despite Covid safety measures in place had an enjoyable evening. Had we booked a later table feel it would have felt rushed
Staff are very attentive and couldn't do enough for you I have a diary allergy and they were very efficient at offering different alternatives and recommendations myself and my husband had a lovley evening
Service and food was fantastic
it was a beautiful experience having afternoon tea at the Grand, the service was impeccable and the food was exquisite
Lovely restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere, excellent service and the afternoon tea was very tasty with the slight exception of the sandwiches which had clearly been made much earlier and then kept refrigerated until served which resulted in a cold and slightly hard texture and a suppressed flavour.
