First, I thought 'oh yes, I'll be able to visit the Star Inn but that's 25 miles away from the center? Not really realistic for a couple dependent on public transport and with relatively little time...
So, what's York got going for it? :)

A good place for lunch is Le Langhe Italian deli.
You might like L'Antica Locanda, in the Shambles.
There is a good view of the Minster from M&S
You can eat indifferent food, but in the amazing Assembly Rooms at Ask.

Meltons still the place for quality dining, interesting well thought menus and non-gougy wine list. still my go-to place in York. Couple of decent real ale pubs nearby if that is your thing too, 5 mins walk from town centre. Going there next week for chef mate's birthday.
J Bakers is the other choice, don't know why but I never seem to go here, but it has its fans and wouldn't put you off, again for beer, the blue bell across the road is an interesting tiny pub.
Something a bit different, Red Chilli on Rougier street killer chinese, check out the thread on here, Try the dumplings, lamb hot pot, spring onion bread and pork and green beans . it is excellent, they do the standard cantonese stuff but the szechuan is where they shine. if you do fancy cantonese they have a very cheap lunch menu 9.99 3 courses 5.50 for 1.
Across the road Akbars, one of the best indians but dinner only and not really somewhere to linger.
le Langhe i haven't tried, only the deli but is supposed to be good but needs booking.
Italian non chain Restaurante Bari in the shambles is usually lively and authentically shouty italian.
