My partner and I came here whilst enjoying a few nights in York to celebrate my birthday. We saw this restaurant whilst out walking through the town and was attracted to the name of the restaurant. We checked the menu out and soon realised it was amazingly priced so we booked for 8 o'clock and we were greeted by a lovely, polite waitress who was very quick to attend to us. Our drinks and food came out in a very timely manner considering how busy it was! The steak was cooked to perfection and the drinks were beautiful. They even brought me a chocolate cake to say happy birthday! Overall 10/10 will absolutely recommend to anyone. Thanks Ate-o'clock :D x

Fantastic quaint, almost speakeasy like little restaurant, we've visited before but was full, had some training just outside York so thought I'd book in advance, was greated with smiles, waitresses very polite and helpful only thing I didn't like is had to pay extra for the mushroom but I suppose that's a good way to keep the price of everything else down. Will definitely be back when we stay over in york so we can try the cocktail menu.

We went here for our anniversary and really enjoyed the food.. the service was amazing.. we were given a complimentary glass of prosecco each and then a 'happy anniversary' dessert which was a nice touch.

Sadly we had an awful meal Owner did ask us why we didn’t eat our steak. I didn’t like to complain so tried to eat it but couldn’t it was dry and tasteless. To be fair they offered us a sweet on the house which we didn’t have and he took £10 off our bill which was decent of him but didn’t make up for the disappointment

Thank you for your feedback. I sincerely apologise that you felt your steaks were unsatisfactory. Our steaks are usually praised due to their high quality, so it is regretful to hear that yours were not of the same standard. In the rare occasion that a guest is unhappy with their meal, we encourage guests to let a member of staff know so we can rectify the problem by offering a replacement or an alternative. We hope this does not affect choosing to visit us again in the future. Guest Relations

Booked a table for two for our anniversary and mentioned on the booking it was an anniversary, but didn't expect Ate O'clock to pick that up. Was I wrong! They greated us with a smile and offered us both a glass of Prescecco with a rasberry and wished us Happy Anniversary. The service was excellent and very friendly even though they were busy. The food was superb and at the end they brought out an anniverday plate with a written message and small cake. We eat out a lot but this was the best eating experience we have had and we will definately be back.
I can't remember the waitress's name but she was excellent as were all the staff.
