Frankie & Bennys York Restaurant Clifton Moor - Reviews

Webmasters review: On my last visit here I decided to go on one of my crash diets. Well, looking at the menu I felt that I might not be able to eat here. But then I spotted the salads. I was still worried as the waiter asked for my order. However I thought a seafood type salad would be healthy.

I then asked "Can you put the dressing on the side?"

He replied; "Yes. We can put it in a little container so that you can add as much as you wish to your salad sir. We would be happy to do that."

A great decision by me for the sake of my waistline! Also, it is great to see that restaurants in York can mean tasty and healthy!

Always a good meal

Having been to eat hear a few times and always enjoyed it. Last visited with an accountant friend of mine David after he took a sneaky afternoon off (waves to David if he reads this). Good food and a good experience for singles, who like something more than a light lunch, great for couples and families too.

Next to the cinema - it can get busy

I will say that sometimes the staff are a bit surly when it is busy. However, but if you make the right motions you can get what you want. The atmosphere here is good, with quite music anyone in their 30's to 80's will recognise. This restaurant can get busy on a weekend, as it is right next door to the VUE Cinema in Clifton Moor (formally Warner Cinema). This is the perfect spot for a meal if you are going to see a film there.


The menu has a New York Italian style to it. The starters are nice and they do have a platter of stuff that 2 can share. This is good fun food if you are with a friend. Maybe a bit chaotic if you are with the kids, but still fun. Pizza, pasta, burgers, salads are available and a lot more too. The spaghetti and meatballs has a good flavour to it. The caesar salad is good and crisp (maybe a touch to much dressing but that's American for you). When I was there, large soft drinks were available with no cost when you asked for a refill.


You pay a reasonable price to a meal and good service. Plus it makes a change to the usual Italian meal, with the New York feel and flavour.

Family Friendly Restaurant in York

This is very much a family friendly restaurant in York. It is also one of the few that put children first. I was told by staff "We are trained to make sure children have fun and enjoy their time here."

Please mention Hotels in York website when you call. Thanks.
