Always the right place to go
Apart from the staff wearing masks and some hand sanatizer semi hidden at the front desk, very little credence paid to any of the Covid regulations. Staff taking off masks to hug and kiss friends kind of summed up the attitude.
Best place in west London
The food was great but the vegetarian options could’ve been more broad. Only one salad was vegetarian and it was pretty much just a bowl of lettuce, would’ve appreciated more thought for veggie and vegan diners. The cauliflower wings were DELICIOUS so the restaurant is definitely on the right track. Just a few more options would’ve made it a 5 star review.
I love this place, I’ve been here twice now and had the best service & really good food. It’s a nice spot for brunch at portobello road.
The food was nice, waiting staff and management were nice. Enjoyed the atmosphere. If you go on a Friday before 7 and request a corner seat you can bring the children. Food menu is limited but I would go back, even if only for the mozzarella sticks.
Fabulous food, burger cooked to perfection. Delicious fries. Service was outstanding.
Safe, clean environment, social distancing excellent.
Fantastic as always! Thank you as always for looking after us :)
I visit Electric Diner quite often so was extremely pleased to see them back open after lockdown. Food amazing always, service amazing as always.
Wonderful food, atmosphere and location. Always tray to go and never disappoints me
Delicious food, good value for money, nice atmosphere. Great little spot in Portobello. Highly recommend
Service very good and friendly. Social distancing measures in place effectively.
Everything back as it was, thanks for a lovely lunch
Very friendly & accommodating staff + lovely late night food.
Really lovely service and good attention. Food was mostly good - beers a bit warm. Both had waffles and unfortunately one lot was perfect and golden and the other was burnt and crispy. Had to swap because one party didn't like theirs overdone. The acoustics were such that you could hear every conversation and even the sound of people laughing was amplified. The cornbread and devilled eggs were the best we'd ever had and the staff were really nice. I did book it as a birthday treat and it would have been nice if that was acknowledged but not that important.
I'd say best comfort food I've had. The mozzarella sticks and the cauliflower wings with blue cheese are out of this world!
Fantastic service as always
Nice to see how careful they’re being with covid regulations and very prompt service.
Wonderful atmosphere and Karene was amazing running the staff who all smiled under their masks!
The food was outstanding, especially the avocado bread with poached eggs. These are a reason to come back. The place has a great decor, a little on the dark side but cozy.
My only feedback to the restaurant is that they shouldn’t be so pushy trying to get you to order water (which isn’t in the menu) and it should be disclosed that it is at a cost. Also, the size of the juices are tiny. Not small, tiny. At 4£.
Just being careful with this things, I think the overall experience would be excellent
The waitress was really good when she however quiet slow to see anyone, food arrived before the drinks, we had also asked for water and had to ask again as that didn’t arrive. Overall okay, slightly overpriced but it was good quality
Brunch was ok. Nothing bad , nothing spectacular. Have had many better ones. Booked on open table for 3 ppl. On the booking confirmation says we can have the table for 2 hrs. We weren't actually planning to stay for 2 hrs anyway. We were told that they would need the table in 5 mins after being there for 1 hr.
Had a lovely experience, even though it was Saturday evening we experienced an outstanding service by all the waiters and hostesses who took the time to make our evening unforgettable. Food was great, ambience was inspiring, and even though (or because) the noise level was very high, you can sit very closely to another table without being disturbed by the people‘s conversations next to you! Always love coming back here, just please put a veggie burger on the menu!
Quirky venue with good service slightly let down by the style of menu (American diner-like). Having said that my steak was beautifully cooked but I feel the menu could be upgraded given the quality of the venue and offering.
Restaurant is near the cinema we were headed so that was okay. The salad was very nice and tasty and our waitress was very nice. There was a very loud group of americain kids that was very annoying. I couldn’t have a conversation with my son because of the noice.
The aubergine and mozzarella and corn bread were divine
Excellent food and presentation - loved the French toast
What can I say ? I brought my sister to the electric cinema and followed that by visiting the diner for her 50th birthday the manager on duty at the time was brilliant and really made a fuss of her and went the extra mile I couldn’t thank her enough ( apologies can’t remember her name )
Would recommend to friends and family and will definitely be back
A BIG thank you
Such a lovely experience. We often come for breakfast here but on this day it was my sons 7th birthday. He ordered the pancakes and we were surprised when they arrived with a candle in them and the staff sang happy birthday. It was lovely and made him feel really special.
We weren’t charged for my sons pancakes which was such a surprise and was very much appreciated. A lovely touch. The staff were great, friendly and our food was delicious.
Amazing diner, great food and service as always. Have been coming here for many years, a treasure in London. keep it up!! ❤️❤️❤️
Good vibe and good time! Just need to sort out toilet smell. Find ways to make the place smell nicer
Great place for really good variety for breakfast! Great service provided by our server, Wahida! She was so friendly and helpful with information about the city. Would definitely go back on our next trip back.
Excellent service. The staff and good was amazing out of this world but the place cud of been a bit brighter as i went with a person who is slightly blind but was ok in the end
The best diner In town for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner , you will never go wrong here
The portions were a little on the small side and the service was a little slow given it wasn't very busy. The staff were friendly as always and I enjoyed the experience overall.
A cool diner experience to enjoy a bite to eat before a film!
Excellent service and atmosphere. A hidden gem in London!
Enjoyed my meal here. It was very busy & noisy our table of two was a little cramped literally inches from the table next to us. Would definitely request a booth next time.
The Reuben sandwich was outstanding.
really good, great food and service, quick timings for eating before a film. unfortunately marked down for ambiance because of how loud it was - difficult to hear the person across the table! other than that, would definitely recommend.
All the food was good apart from the poached eggs which were definitely soft boiled, came served with the wrong bread that was asked for and no butter. When this was pointed out the waitress told us 'that was the order' and didn't try to rectify the meal. The menu should state all food items in the item ordered, the salads especially were vague in their descriptions.
It was a great tasting meal. We have been here once before, the first time we were sat in a booth in the main area, which was a great atmosphere and very attentive waiting staff.
The second time, we were placed round near the entrance to the toilets. Admittedly we chose to sit there instead of being sandwiched in-between other small tables. It wasn't as good an atmosphere but the food was still amazing.
We will definitely be back again, we will just make sure we sit in the main area, preferably a booth :)
Good drinks, great food.
Great food and fun atmosphere with friendly, helpful wait staff!
