Love this place! Great alcohol selection, good cocktails, & virgin cocktail options. If you like sports this is the place for you. Watched the world cup here and had a blast! Also had food here a few times and thoroughly enjoyed my meal each time. There is a jukebox in the back which is a hoot as well!


Best Place for a Quick Bite and Drink in Highland Park

This is our go-to place when we want a quick meal or when we need somewhere local to take guests. It even has the seal of approval from our rather unadventurous parents.

The drink selection includes artisan beers and lots of local (and far-flung) wines. I'm always able to get a great glass of Pinot Noir or Shiraz or sometimes enjoy

The menu is not huge, but the food is fresh and consistently good. There are even a couple of vegetarian-friendly dishes: the truffle grilled cheese, the mac and cheese, and the portobello burger.

If you want a quiet meal, don't go here on the weekend or when there's a Lakers game. A weekday night is best, when you'll easily get a seat in one of their comfy booths.

Don't be fooled by the slightly sketchy appearance of York Blvd, The York is a friendly and (almost) authentic British Gastropub - possibly the only one in LA.

Can't pour a proper pint

These guys do not know how to pour beer. So as to save money they will pour you a pint from a pint glass they they served earlier. Plus there beer is flat. To get a proper pint you need to go to the Verdugo.

Great Music On Wednesdays!!

Along with a great beer selection they had an awesome DJ. The place was jumping and the drinks were flowing. It has a chill atmosphere and everyone seemed to be having a good time. I'm so jazzed the DJ will be back tomorrow on the 22nd.

You'll probably see me there drinking my fav beer cask ale and dancing in my seat!

Cool Place but questionable food

Great place, great vibe, hip people, but really bad chicken wings and over priced fish and chips that were all batter and no fish!

Cool vibe

Very cool vibe. Relaxed, intellectual hip feel. Great selection of interesting beers and wines. Appetizers are unique - truffle grilled cheese; a selection of olives, mixed nuts and fried garbanzo beans; etc. I want to go back and try out the brunch! Not sure about the neighborhood, but there was plenty of activity in the evening due to other restaurants and the nearby college so we felt safe walking to our car.

Best local Bar

Best local bar in Highland Park/Eagle Rock area. Super friendly bartenders (if you aren't in there to order an appletini or irish car bomb), and a solid and consistantly exellent menu of gourmet food. Normally i wouldn't pay $12 bucks for a burger but it really is that good. Fantastic ambiance with a good jukebox. Best place for brunch on Sat and Sun. Try the manmosa if you have the testicular fortitude.

fish sandwich is phenomenal (bar standards)

Good food, great selection of beers, love the decor. Great place to call a neighborhood bar. Wish they had one just like it in downtown la.

First Time Visit - Observations

Being no stranger to a bar - I try to go to a different one at least twice a month and The York was my destination on May 24 (saw it in Los Angeles Magazine piece on Highland Park).

UPON ARRIVING - York Blvd around The York is a DUMP! The City and the merchants in the area should be ashamed of themselves. Note to Owners - It's OK to clean up at least in front of your establishment (Thought maybe to plant and maintain your own tree(s) in the empty tree wells on the sidwalk in front of your place?)

INSIDE - I'm an old school drinker but appreciate what they done. Open ceiling is cool and layout is very well done (big open space with dining separated). Decor was a little cold for my taste, but like I said - I'm old school. Lighting is good and music was very good.

OPERATIONS - I didn't eat (but a lot of people were), but was impressed with the menu. Food looked good and flow from kitchen was pretty steady. The bartender (a woman) was friendly and helpful. They have a good selection of micro-brews on tap - I told her to pick one - she made a good choice. Price was standard for trendy spots...

OVERALL - Was a good visit and the place works hard. I would guess - seeing the age of the patrons - that it probably picks up later - I was gone by 10....

Could be a real great place...

I've lived in Highland Park for a long time and have been dying for a good neighborhood bar that I could go to with my friends or family. The York almost lives up to my expectations. I've been there at least 10 times (it's 4 blocks from where I live) and I've had the same experience ever time.
First the good: Like others have said, the decor and design of The York is excellent. Floor to ceiling windows facing the street, a beautiful, well crafted, bar, and perfect lighting really make the place feel inviting and hip.
Now the bad. The service is horrible. Just horrible. The bartenders didn't know what a lager beer was when I asked and one time I had to wait 10 minutes to get their attention and there was only 7 people sitting at the bar and two bar tenders. Also... the food is way overpriced and the portions are tiny. $9.00 for a grilled cheese? Really?
Don't go until they improve the service and bring down the prices to a Highland Park level, which I hope is soon because we really need this place to work.
