The evening started badly having to wait to Be seated in a restaurant that have only 2 occupied tables. Less chatting at the bar by staff would have resolved this problem. In fairness the food was ok. However we ordered a sharing starter and had to ask for and subsequently wait for side plates. The main course was good but portions were small, and after being asked if we wanted sauces we had to wait whilst they went to the kitcken for mustard.....really, do so few people really ask for it? At the end of our meal I visited the toilets. I would not have eaten in this place had I seen the state of them before I ate. If a place is so dirty it let's front of house is so disgusting, it always makes me wonder what you can see looks like. The gents toilets stank. One of the urinals was blocked and overflowing with stale milky looking urine. As a consequence the floor made the cubicle unusable. This did not look like something that had just happened as it was so bad. I would not recommend this place. If you do choose to eat here check the conveniences first

Enjoyed our meal here - plenty of choice on the menu. The restaurant is large and goes back a long way when you get inside. The staff were good, especially Emma, our waitress. Had a nice coffee also and could choose decaffeinated and semi-skimmed milk. Would definitely go again when visiting York.

First impressions of the setting were good, decor nice and looked clean. Got orders taken reasonably quickly...it all went downhill from this point! Long wait for drinks but eventually they arrived. Then we waited and waited and waited a bit longer. An hour later the food arrived. Toddler was pretty much climbing the walls. Could be almost forgiven if the food was amazing...or even hot. It wasn’t! Cold and tasteless. Won’t be returning and definitely won’t be recommending!

Myself and husband had two deluxe breakfasts and shared eggy bread & banana. The streaky bacon was not crispy and greasy, there were 5 button mushrooms and a tiny amount of beans. The banana came with its blackened skin still on - very off-putting - and it and the eggy were tasteless. We went across the way and had Krispy Kreme donuts, which were more tasty than what we just had.

We went to Joe's kitchen last night for a family meal and the food was absolutely fantastic, we couldn't fault the quality of the food or the service we received. Heather served us and was extremely polite and helpful, she was very professional but still had a laugh and a joke with us which added to the atmosphere.. She made some recommendations when we couldn't decide on our desserts and they were spot on! Was definitely a 5* meal and we'll be back again!
