    The service, musicians, environment, drinks were great. The food was, I’m afraid mediocre and apart from a couple of dishes disappointing. Despite this we would return especially when the same musicians are playing as they were excellent but we’d definitely be more selective in our food choices and also reduce a fairly high bill. I’m saying no to recommending to a friend based solely on the food but would suggest they went for the jazz but with a cautionary note re the food.

    We had visited Nola for cocktails several weeks ago and really enjoyed it, so decided to book in for dinner on our next visit to York. We arrived early for our table but was able to be seated straight away. We were greeted and made to feel very welcome. The waiting staff explained about the menu how to order 2-3 plates, which is what we did. The food was exceptional and we really enjoyed it. The waiting staff were very friendly and provided excellent service. We will definitely be back.

    No cider on the menu and the meal I got was very small for the price I paid. My friends enojyed their burger but I probably wouldn't rush back here.

    Morning, Our menu is made of small dishes and we recommend 2/3 of each as explained on the menu. We have 3 ciders, strawberry and lime, wild berries and just Apple, all of them by the bottle. regards, Aldo.

    Our first visit to Nola. The staff were friendly and helpful. We ordered just the right amount of food for us - 2 small plates and 1 side dish each, which was perfect. We particularly enjoyed trying something different - the gumbo and jambalaya, plus the crab cakes, cray fish salad and key lime pie for dessert. We sat upstairs and liked the Art Deco style.

    Absolutely loved the place, food and staff. Everyone was so kind and friendly. Everyone was so quick with EVERYTHING we ordered, it was unreal. If I had to have one point id change it would be where we were sat as we were in the middle of the room with a few parties around us so a little noisy. Other than that would recommend to anyone. Many thanks , will be back soon !

    The decor is beautiful and the staff were super friendly and attentive. The food was nice and tasty, we ordered 5 plates between 2 people and had enough food. The table was far too small for a tapas/ sharing type meal and I had to eat at a weird angle to keep everything balanced. The restaurant was dark and we couldn't read the menu, lots of people were using their phones to get some light to read it. The noise level and acoustics are very loud and we had to strain our ears and shout to hear eath other. The ambience was nice and everyone was having a good time.

    My second trip here but the first for food. There is a good choice of drinks and cocktails are made well and look (and taste) great. We shared the tapas style plates and were really pleased with our dishes. Service was great and all in all we had a really good evening and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

    It’s a really good atmosphere and very lively in the downstairs restaurant. It was 10 minutes before anyone came to the table to serve us, which we pointed out to the waitress. After that the service was really good and the food plates all arrived together and were delicious. We finished our wine upstairs in the beautiful Art Deco themed bar/restaurant, we enjoyed our experience very much.

    We ate here on a Sunday evening. There was live jazz and a lovely atmosphere. The staff were really friendly and efficient in their attentiveness. The food was really yummy and portions were perfectly sized. The menu suggests 2-3 dishes per person which felt about right.

    Wonderful new decor, though chairs extremely heavy to move. Felt tables were a quite packed in, particularly post Covid, and waiters had to squeeze past our table. On arrival we were offered the table on the stage before the performer/singe had arrived - thank goodness we did not take that option. I don't think that should have been offered at all. On the whole food was good, but having ordered battered cauliflower and a Veg Bowl we were very disappointed that the Veg bowl was 2/3s cauliflower as well! When asked if everything was ok by two different servers we mentioned this and neither said anything in response - so why bother asking? Service was good, and we did enjoy the evening but it was not a wow as I was hoping for. I would recommend with caution.

    The food was amazing, and you definitely need 2-3 dishes per person. However , ask for one to be a starter , as the dishes all come out at once.

    Tapas-style food, but when you order be aware that ALL the dishes will be piled onto your table all at once with nowhere to put them. Front of house staff need to inform diners of this so we order in 2 small separate services with a 15-20 min gap between them.

    Gorgeous decor and food. We had to ask for red wine glasses as we were served red wine in white wine glasses, reason they gave was they only serve the house wine in big glasses or something strange like that. It was put right. Also we asked for food to come out in 2 dishes per couple rather than all 10 at the same time, it was deemed a strange request, but again it was respected. The food was superb, the wine and decor just fabulous. We'll be back

    We were served by Andrea and Pavlos who were both warm and welcoming. The service was attentive, and patient, even with how busy they were on a race day (myself and Mother in law had never been before, we had lots of questions). They recommend two or three dishes per person, and so we had a really good mix of scallops, gumbo, crayfish salad, battered cauliflower, belly pork and, garlic and chill prawns. The food was all delicious (found the crayfish salad a little bland) but otherwise everything was light, tasty and flavourful. Also that brioche bread and butter pud with bourbon sauce was delicious! I could've eaten an entire tray, I swear. We also had some mocktails which were nice and fresh, and a nice little accompaniment to our meal. Ambience is lovely, with a real creole/New Orleans vibe. Am really excited for the jazz night me and my husband are attending in a few weeks time before we have our first child. It'll be a nice final date night for a while. Thankyou to everyone at Nola for the awesome night
