Lovely place with really friendly staff. The food was fantastic and great value. Would definetly return the next time we're in York.
My partner and I visited Ate O’Clock in York for our first anniversary, ahead of a theatre show. The little extra touches we received to help us celebrate really made the meal special for us, and the staff couldn’t have been more friendly or attentive. The meal was excellent value for money; the only downside was that my steak was a little fatty and the calamari not quite cooked to my taste, but nothing that detracted from the evening as a whole. We would definitely recommend to friends and are likely to go back again next time we’re visiting.
Booked online a while ago for 4 of us to celebrate a 40th birthday. Got an email the day before asking me to confirm I was still attending, and added the birthday to the booking. Upon arrival there have been some changes to the outside which is now insulated which was a great idea :-) The host knew about our birthday and a lovely suprise came at the end of the meal. We had starters, mains, wine and all our orders were spot on. 3rd time here, and would use again definitely worth trying here if in York.
Great food. Great service
Lovely restaurant hidden away. Great food and atmosphere, clean, quirky & nicely decorated.
I've been here two times now, and both times the food and service have been absolutely incredible. Would definitely recommend. The set menu was a very agreeable price and had a good enough variety to it. We will be coming back here for certain!
A great atmosphere, attentive service and excellent food. Plenty to choose from and every bite was delicious.
We were on a visit to York and decided to give Ate O'clock a try. We had seen some mixed reviews so was pleasantly surprised. It is quite a nice little place and the food was very good. We chose from the set menu as it had what we were looking for. While it was not overly busy the evening we went the service was good and the staff friendly. It was good value for money and we would highly recommend the Grilled Chicken Breast. The chicken melted in your mouth and the potatoes and vegetables were spot on. We were not overly impressed with the cocktails that we had seen in the reviews as there was nothing that we would have enjoyed. Would highly recommend if you are coming to York and want a nice place that is quiet with good food and good value.
I'd only recommend this restaurant for the drinks as it's 2 for 1. Had calamari to start which was okay and then had a beef burger which was extremely dry to the point it made me cough and need a drink. Nothing special. Asked for mayo to which I received a ramakin with a tiny bit which had clearly been squeezed out of a bottle not enough for even a handful of chips. Wanted to take my colleagues for our meeting here as it had many good comments but we soon realised it wasn't the best.
lovely bistro service exceptional. value and food good. will be visiting again and bringing daughter who is at York st John university
I visited for my wife’s birthday celebration. There is no better place in York to celebrate ! Wonderful food, steak cooked to perfection, lovely cocktails, Primotivo wine was perfect with the steak. Faultless service. It’s my favourite restaurant in York. Highly recommend
Dear Anthony, Thank you for your kind words and fabulous 5* review! It is great that you had such a wonderful evening for your wife's birthday and even more great to hear that we made it that bit more special. We carefully handpick the items on both our drink and food menus, so positive feedback is greatly appreciated! I will be sure to pass your compliments on to the rest of the team and hopefully we will see you again in the not so distant future. Guest Relations Ate O'clock Restaurant
Excellent food and service and very well priced. I would highly recommend.
Lovely place with good food and very friendly staff.
Lovely food, friendly, prompt and helpful service. They also added a couple of extras as we had mentioned it was our anniversary on the booking. A lovely evening out.
Had a lovely meal here for my Mum's birthday. We each and 3 courses and were generally impressed with all food. Starters were of a high standard, and highlights of the mains were the salmon with gnocchi, and the duck with sweet potato mash. Desserts was OK, but always hard to find unique dishes. A little disappointed with the cheese board for 2 people (5 cheeses). All the cheeses were 'safe' options and nothing that different. As someone who loves cheese, it would have been good to see some more adventurous choices for the board. Service was great throughout, no complaints at all. Overall, a great meal to celebrate my Mum's birthday.
Have been before and didn’t have the set meal. It was better before. Lovely serving staff, but maybe add more variety to the set menu - thanks
We last visited this restaurant last November since then they have covered in the courtyard entrance giving a very attractive dining area. We sat in the main dining room which was as equally pleasant. The menu is good and the value of the set menu is excellent with plenty of choice although you do pay a little bit extra for steak. It was the birthday of one of our group and she was presented with a decorated plate & small piece of cake with candle, a nice touch to a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Nine of us ate here on a Monday night, the staff were very helpful, friendly and dealt with us as quickly as possible. We enjoyed the food which was very good value on the set menu. Everyone commented that they enjoyed the meal and we found the atmosphere to be good. It was quiet when we arrived by quite full by the time we left although didn't feel crowded or noisy. The restaurant it's self is pretty and well laid out.
Service was lovely but food quality was very poor. The steak was tough and the sauce tasted of disinfectant.
A very lovely meal, very good service! Lots of good quality vegetarian options
Incredibly friendly staff and food was very good value for money. Only a shame that the card machine wouldn't allow me to add a tip! I will definitely return.
The chicken breast in lemon sauce was delicious however I was expecting a whole breast not just a few small pieces. I think a bit more chicken would have made it perfect. My boyfriend had steak and he said it was the best he had eaten for a long time. There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere and the staff were friendly and attentive.
Good food, nice atmosphere. Looked after well by all staff.
We ve been visiting this restaurant for over five years and it improves with every visit
Lovely atmosphere, gorgeous food and very attentive staff. We sat in the courtyard area which had heatlamps places around as it was a little chilly. Not the cheapest of places, but the food was absolutely delicious and well worth the cost
Restaurant and food was lovely. Our steak was cooked perfectly. My only complaint would be we felt abit rushed inbetween courses.
Lovely restaurant, very friendly staff, really good food, would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be coming back again when next in York!
Excellent food shame there was bearly no time in between starters and mains and the staff where not really strong in customer service lovely restaurant but some little bits need to be improved to make it an excellent experience
There was a nice atmosphere, reasonable food prices and wonderful staff. However, we were rushed to finish our meal and leave which was a bit annoying.
The service we received from every member of staff we encountered was exceptional. There was a lively buzz about the place, it was extremely busy but nothing was too much and staff didn't look flustered despite the numbers they were dealing with. The food was lovely but was not particularly hot and both the pork and duck were a bit over done. We would, however, definitely still return
Great atmosphere, interesting menu choices, attentive staff and great food overall. A star lost for me as the Vension main was under-whelming...had food envy all evening. The Steaks looked amazing.
Beautiful setting, friendly and attentive staff. Food was delicious and very reasonably priced. We visited with two vegetarian friends and there was plenty of options for them.
I have been coming to York for years and did not know about this restaurant and il so pleased to have found it. Good food, good service and nice ambience
Lovely food and great value. My mum, sister and I stumbled upon Ate O’Clock on a visit to the city a few years ago and we made a mental note to go back the next time we were in Tuen. We did so last weekend and weren’t disappointed. We enjoyed it so much that over the course of three days we made two visits. I loved the chicken burger and also the pulled pork scotch egg. All of the staff were great too. We’ll definitely be back.
The food was really nice and the set menu was great value.
The service was good and the venue has a nice atmosphere.
Fabulous environment, food was delicious and service excellent. We really enjoyed the whole experience and would definitely go again
Friendly staff but the food does not live up to expectations of the Ate O’Clock of old.
Was expecting so much more and was very disappointed to say the least.
It’s gone from top notch dining to middle of the road, such a shame.
It was my husband’a birthday, when I asked for the bill they came out with a plate with happy birthday on, a candle and some cake which was an unexpected thoughtful surprise. Very pleasant staff. Just found the service in between courses was a little quick.
Disappointed. Looks very inviting from the outside and the atmosphere and decor inside is ok. However we found our food very bland and was served very quickly. Odd that we couldnt order a glass of house red without ordering a steak meal.
Reasonably priced for two courses,though we were in and out in the space of around 45 minutes.
It was ok,but nothing special.
This place is a little gem! Lovely food with a great variety of foods for everybody. The highlight for us was definitely the service, the waitress was wonderful! Really bubbly, happy and couldn't do enough for us. We had quite a significant wait for our main course however this was dealt with superbly by the manager who apologised prefusely and got us some free drinks to compensate. Food was really very nice and excellent service. Would love to go back when next in York and would highly recommend! Thank you!
