Recently returned to Oscar's after a year or two and sadly I can no longer say one good thing about it! I may as well just list the bad points:

- Ignored when we came in (waitress clocked us and ignored us);
- Had to wait 20mins to be seated, other people were prioritised over us;
- Food selection is very poor (if you don't want a burger);
- Staff are NOT friendly;
- Food quality is poor;
- Music is DEAFENING! (we were shouting);
- When we asked for the music to be turned down we were ignored (but told they would do it - yeah, right);
- Food is expensive;
- When we complained our comments were ignored (we had to shout them to be heard!) and met with abuse;
- Both myself and my partner suffered from food poisoning shortly afterwards;

I would never return here. There are so many lovely restaurants in York, don't waste your time with this one!

Since my last post, this place has moved (somewhat controversially!) across the road into the same building as the Biltmore. Nice enough, but not as big and rambling.

I've always liked Oscars - except that the music gets steadily louder as the night progresses, to the point where conversation is impossible. Surely this is precisely he kind of cosy, intimate place where you would WANT to have a conversation?

very cute little pub with great outside terrace and friendly bar staff. When I need a good feed I'm there! the burgers are BRILLIANT and very generous portions, currently planning my next visit...

A York institution since I was a lad in the early 80's. Better known for it's food (huge portions as most have already said) and it's fairly cheap too, especially with their discount vouchers which are often printed in the local papers. Has thankfully rid itself of the "wine bar" image after dropping it from its name way after the 80's abyss had passed.
