Second visit. Food and service great. Value for money excellent. Only downside was we were in the courtyard by the heater and there was a bit of a draft. Not too bad but would have been cosier in restaurant, especially as we'd booked ahead.

Can’t fault our meal here. The staff were attentive but not overly so. Cocktails were lush and the food delicious! The set meal options had loads of choice and looked excellent value but we fancied a treat and ordered starters and fillet steaks of the main menu. Steaks were cooked to perfection and everything was piping hot and fresh. We will definitely be back!

Sat in the outside area. Very pleasant area, they've worked very hard to make it accommodating with awning cover and heating (you wouldn't think it's outside). We brought 2 dogs which were both well looked after.

Food was lovely and service the same. Would come again. Thank you.

I have visited twice now and will definitely return on my next visit to York.I had calamari to start followed by steak. Both cooked perfectly. Staff were friendly and attentive without being over familiar and there were no long delays in between courses or for drinks. I highly recommend this hidden away gem 👍🏻

Even though our table wasn’t ready for us the service we received was excellent . The food was excellent and the service was fab from lovely friendly waitresses. Slight worry as it’s classed as out door eating so we could mix bubbles the roof was shut so it was very much indoor eating

Would love to see more vegetarian and vegan choice and i thought the Christmas menu would best suit one set price rather than individually but just my opinion

We've eaten at Ate O'Clock on several occasions and the food has always been excellent.
Lots of precautions taken for Covid, so felt very comfortable. Tables well spaced and lots of partitioning set up. Looking forward to dining with Ate O'clock again soon.

Good service and food. Could’ve been seated in a better seat instead of the walkway next to the till. Also didn’t want to be rude but one of the waitresses smelt of BO. But overall nothing to really complain about will definitely come back
