    My husband and I dined at The York Bistro on Father's Day, June 15, 2014. It was the first time we had eaten in this establishment and I must say we were both more than pleased with both the service and food. Staff were very accommodating (I have a food allergy re shell fish) and they were very obliging in exchanging the seafood chowder for tomato basil soup, which was the best tomato soup I have ever eaten. There were no long delays, water glasses and coffee mugs were replenished without asking. All-in-all, it was a great dining experience and one that we will enjoy again.

    1. It was obvious upon arrival our reservation had not been read. Specifically requested window and was seated at wall 2. Food portions sized for a child 3. Server abandoned us for 15 min at end of meal. We just put our coats on and waited at cash so we could just leave without asking for dessert or more beverages 4. Overall the interior decoration and furniture saved this location from a poor rating

    Although I booked for a group (of guests from out of town) there wasn't enough wait staff working, and service was very slow. Other diners made so much noise I had trouble hearing people at my own table. (While this isn't the restaurant's fault, we should have been offered a table further from the bar area.) And the food (beef, salmon) was overcooked. Love the location, but disappointed otherwise.

    We thought we would take out a work colleague and the menu for chop chop suited all 6 of us.. the pot pie was fabulous.. you ran out of the creme brule (my favorite) but all others enjoyed to black forest cake. It was a nice experience. Service was a little slow for a business lunch but overall we enjoyed it.

    It was my mothers 84th birthday. There was four ladies. The view was spectacular, the Queen Mary 2 was leaving the harbour. It was a beautiful sunny day. The food was terrific and the waiter was wonderful and attentive. We dined for 3 hours and no one rushed us, the waiter was very patient and kind and lots of smiles. The greek salad was one of the best i have eaten. Really enjoyed our day.

    First time at this venue with me and my wife. We will definitively come back. The food selection is wide with some very interesting item such as bison and sturgeon. My appetizer was the trio smoked salmon, smoked trout and smoked sturgeon. my entrée was a delightful perfectly cooked Lamb.

    This was my second experience - the first was Brilliant - this one wasn't. It started on well she took drink orders and delivered them however once the main course were served (no bread offered) - the food was good - not great like last time - but it was good - but then the waitress disappeared..the 2 male waiters and bartender spent the rest of the night looking for her. And I mean looking for her. We didn't get any offer of dessert or coffee and when they finally found her she well lets just say everyone was fed up. The bartender was the one to bring the dessert menus and he had no idea how to put those medal menus on the table - almost dropping them in places that they didn't fit; no coffee cups when coffee pots were finally brought

    Sadly overcooked procuitto wrapped scallops (still pretty good - could have been great), and a dry, overcooked halibut made for a disappointing meal out. Service was a bit slow, despite the restaurant being quite empty. I did have a lovely cocktail, "The York". And the location is nice, overlooking the boardwalk and ocean.

    We loved the openness/ friendly atmosphere of the pub area - a bit too cold to sit on the patio, but from our table we had a great view of the harbour. Both the stuffed chicken breast and Yellow currey shrimk were delicious. We found that the tomatoes used in the caprese salad were a bit too soft - but it had a deliciou flavour none the less. Server was very attentive. We will certainly be back to try more selections from the menu.

    We went before a concert and the timeing was perfect - not too fast but not too slow that we were fearful of missing anything. The location is great in that you have the view of the waterfront and the decor is lovely. Waiting to go back when we will eat on on the patio. Although the price for a glass of wine was a little much - but it was for a 10 oz glass, $10.45

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/12/2012
    Restaurant was great, but they had no record that I made a reservation with OpenTable. Fortunately there were tables available, as it is a fairly large restaurant. Food was very good and the service very friendly - It was more pricey than I expected but not unreasonable. Other websites show it as casual pub fare with a $$ rating. I would say the dinner menu is more upscale and deserves a $$$ rating. (lunch menu looked good and was priced in the $$ range) - will definitely go there for lunch. The outside enclosed dining area on the boardwalk would be a great place to eat/drink during warmer weather.

    Food was only ok. For the price, I would have expected it To be better. Decor is lovely now, but the restaurant was cold! A couple of us had to keep our coats on :( I will try it again somete in the summer, as I suspect the outdoor Dining would be nice, and hopefully the food will be better than mediocre.
