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.

Very friendly, excellent service and food. All COVID19 government guidelines adhered to but a temperature check in entry would have been an extra safety measure

Excellent meal delivered in a safe manner under our current challenging climate. We booked outside but when offered a corner table inside out of the way were happy to accept it. Food was excellent!! This was our 20th wedding anniversary meal and was particularly blessed by the Prosseco and Chocolate brownie we were given on the house. Clearly everyone is trying their best in current climate but do wonder if use of disposable gloves is wise for waiting staff or whether hand cleansing between serving each table is better. This is the only area I would even consider changing - in my book still the best restaurant in York

Amazing food, lovely service, great atmosphere. It’s got a really nice vibe, and we were impressed by all of our courses. Service was efficient and friendly, and they were all very smiley (behind masks, of course!). Will go back if we go back to York and would definitely recommend.

Welcomed to AteO'Clock at our booking time,already quite a few people in enjoying themselves,our party of 4+ baby was placed in an area where it was quiet which was useful in case of the little one playing up and disturbing other diners. The food was excellent and price good. Second visit to this restaurant as we are from out of town and would definitely recommend, booked again for York in March so if Government guidelines allow we will book again for AteO'Clock without hesitation.

Lovely meal only problem was table for 2 right in middle indoors so not quite intimate enough for me. Food was delicious and staff courtious and helpful. Price good value for money quality food. Drinks a little on expensive side especially the bottled beers

Nice place and lovely staff but unfortunately the steak we had wasn't the best. Quite chewy. Seemed to be not the best meat rather than how it had been cooked

Very much enjoyed eating at ate o’clock it isn’t the first time I’ve been here many times and keep going back due to the standard of the food and the bistro type setting! The location to town is excellent
We had good seating right near to the overhead heater unfortunately the person behind me wanted it turning off so I had to have my meal with my coat on
