This restaurant did not disappoint. The food was really nice, and the service was warm and friendly. Also the actual restaurant is very nicely decorated and has a great atmosphere to it. We will be returning after lockdown. Thank you!

This is the second time I have dined here. We were satisfied with our meals, puddings very nice.
We were sat in the outside bit where there were heaters, so we were not cold.
It was very busy as the next day was lockdown.
Yes, I would eat here again.
The portions were not as much as last time, as I had the chicken and I think they were a bit miserly on the chicken, as the first time it was a whole chicken breast.
This time only three small pieces.

Food portions were very hearty, perhaps too much for the main! (I ordered the Mediterranean Potato Gnocchi). Everything was delicious and the staff were really lovely! Always the number one spot when my dad comes to visit 😄

Food was nice. 2 course offer was good value but child's menu should have a similar deal or come with a 3 drink. Restaurant was beautiful. The staff were polite but they failed to ask if we wanted others drinks despite clearing away empty glasses mid meal but still ordering a pudding.

Went for our Anniversary, fantastic well presented, to start had the Pulled Pork Scotch Egg, and Husband had The BBQ Chicken Wing, both full of flovour and cooked to perfection, for mains we had Lamb Shank, and Belly Pork, the Belly Pork came with Black Pudding & Potato Bon-Bons which were fabulous (going to have a go at recreating them). As it was our anniversary we had a complimentary glass of Prosecco and mini sharing pudding. Excellent service ftom the Maitr D, and the waiter (unsure of waiters name but wore the black gloves)

Have been a few times and always enjoyed however our last visit we all chose a ribeye from the set menu (which had a £2.95 add on) to the reasonably priced set meal.
The Steak was a letdown for us all unfortunately on this occasion, rather than the fat melting when cooking it hadn’t and it made the dish a fairly tough eat.

Upon arrival we were greeted with a smile. All staff very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Very pretty looked after premises which went with the delicious food and drinks. Definitely chose the right place for a meal for two on our two day break in York.

Another excellant meal here, really enjoyed.
My only complaint we had asked to be indoors as I’m always chilly and while our table was indoors we were opposite the open doorway into the courtyard and it was so so draughty, I ended up with all our coats over my legs

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and experience at Ate o Clock. We were recommended to come here by a friend. We arrived a little earlier than the time we booked but the staff were really friendly and seated us straight away. I told them it was our anniversary on the online booking system and they came over with a glass of Prosecco each and also a desert that they had written happy anniversary on. They made us feel really welcome and really made our anniversary special, the food was gorgeous and the setting was really cosy and romantic. Will definitely come back again next time we’re in York. 10/10 from us.

Me and my husband was in York for our wedding anniversary. We decided last minute to go to Ate o’clock. What an amazing decision it was. The food was absolutely delicious, customer service was out of this world and they ultimately made our night so special. Friendly staff so welcoming and ready to help.

Thank you all so much and we will definitely be returning in the future.
