Great food and great service, just a shame we couldn't of stayed longer, but we were only given a certain time window. This is our 2nd time at the Blues Bar, and the first time upstairs. Will certainly be back next time we visit Harrogate

Wouldn’t know seen as when we arrived we were informed that any booking that was made via the app after 12pm that day was invalid and we should have been informed. Obviously we were really disappointed as we then had no chance on a Saturday night getting in anywhere else. Really poor service surely the app should’ve stated they were fully booked.

After a lot of research we decided to book here to eat after travelling from Cumbria. When you walk into the bar downstairs you don’t really know what to expect, but after heading upstairs I was really surprised, going from a kinda loud bar to such a lovely little restaurant. Not many tables so definitely book in advanced! Food and cocktails was amazing! Everything was reasonably priced. Staff super friendly and helpful. If we hadn’t booked some where else for our second night in Harrogate we would of seen if they had a table spare for the following night. Definitely be back!

We were unable to eat here as we were told on arrival that there were no staff.
We had answered an email at 8.30 am to confirm we would be present for our 7.15 booking. We were astonished and disappointed. Especially since traveling so far.
Fortunately we found another place around the corner, wagamama, and they had staff and courteous service.

The menu and food was really good. And once our order was taken, it came quite quickly.
The service was, unfortunately, not as good. The staff were very polite etc,but they didn’t come to our table frequently at all,and when we ordered drinks,they either never arrived or took an age.
I would go again because the food is lovely, but they need to be more conscious of service.

Firstly the food was really good and we enjoyed all of the dishes we had. The service upstairs was also very good. The issues came with our arrival and the service offered in the blues cafe downstairs. We arrived at the correct time for our booking and were asked to wait at a table outside. The member of staff who instructed us of this was incredibly rude. We then got drinks and proceeded to sit outside for a lengthy spell before being shown to a table in the bar. Well over an hour after our reservation time we were told that they would need us to eat in the bar area, which was a small table on the path to the toilets. Its also very busy and loud in the bar and not very conducive to a pleasant meal. When we refused this offer we eventually got a table upstairs. The service upstairs was very good and the food very enjoyable. But the poor reception ruined the evening for us.

What a fantastic bar, great quirky Yorkshire tapas food that was brilliant. Obviously all cooked fresh and hit the spot, large portions were great value for money. Service second to none thanks for a great day and I have recommended the bar. Hopefully return when live music can be played.

Arrived on time for our booked table to be informed 15mins later that we would have to wait as the people at our reserved table were not ready to move. This went on for an hour, however Staff did provide a free drink. Eventually we sat down and was informed our food was on its way, so I ordered fresh drinks, food came 5 minutes later then drinks 25 minutes later not good,hence poor review

Fabulous place to eat and be entertained. Really cosy dining upstairs and the service was exceptional. Our tapas was delicious with a lovely bottle of red. Great menu to choose from. The guy who was serving us informed us that it was filling up downstairs and took us down to the last table so we could spend the rest of the evening enjoying the open mic night which was a great night. A must go to when in Harrogate 😁

We really enjoyed it, our son and some friends had been and recommended it to us. Our Yorkshire pudding was burnt otherwise I’d have given the food 5 stars.
Great waiter we had and I personalise listening to the music as long as it’s not too heavy or loud. Thoughly enjoyed our evening.

We booked for 7.30pm but prior to our visit we were contacted to see if we could come in early as they were fully booked from 8.30pm. We arrived at 7.00pm and got a snug booth with a window view. The service was excellent and the food was to die for. It was hot and plentiful and we had four of the tapas dishes. I cannot emphasise how amazing the food was and the service. Unfortunately we were virtually kicked out as they needed the table and we kind of got rushed in getting out of the booth. Other than that, an excellent place to go and eat.

The first thing to mention was the almost total absence of Covid-19 precautions and this in a very busy bar/restaurant. Not a great experience to begin with and made worse by very slow service. The food, however, was excellent and extremely imaginative.

This was certainly a new event for an older couple like ourselves not familiar with the Tapas experience. I was influenced to book because of the Trip Advisor excellent reviews.
We were certainly not disappointed in any way. The waiter was helpful suggesting we order 5 items and that was ideal for us. There is a good variety on the menu for all tastes. We particularly enjoyed the belly pork and the Yorkshire Wraps.
There was a good atmosphere and cosy seating .
