Main course was very good. Deserts were good when they arrived but took along time to come. Although the girl did say they were short staffed.
The ambience and noise levels were moderate but we did have an outside table and the diner is in York Designer outlet

I booked for Ed's as a birthday treat. I was a bit apprehensive as to the safety issues however I needn't have worried. Everything was clean, safely spaced and all staff wore masks. The food was lovely and the service was excellent. I would feel safe eating here again

Booked a table, so easy to sit down and order...food was nice except bacon was fatty and mac&cheese was standard...nothing special! Halloumi was disappointing (price over the top)! But mozzarella sticks, milkshake and waffle fries were lovely! Would have liked staff to refill drinks quicker.

Great atmosphere, great food, and great service. I would highly recommended this place. Especially if you're into the whole old style American diner setting. Would've given a perfect rating but unfortunately they didn't have any non-dairy milk to make my girlfriend a milkshake, she was really excited about getting one (They do normally but they told us they ran out a few days ago). Apart from that it was delicious and we'll definitely be going back.

We were a table of five and were pleased that all of the food was brought out at the same time and was nice and warm. The food itself was lovely, aside from the halloumi fries which were a little overcooked, however the rest of the food made up for this. We were pleasantly surprised that we could use our student discount and will definitely be re visiting.

I have to say from arriving to leaving we were looked after excellently
On time with the table , the menu was great and the service was outstanding
Food arrived and was hot and well presented and all my party enjoyed the meal
Could not recommend highly enough , especially how busy they were
Only one suggestion. Make the pancakes available all day and would give 6 stars 👏👏👏

Been a few times pre-Covid and always been happy with everything. Went during the ‘eat out to help out’ period. They were busy and as a result ran out of a few things that for a diner are important (waffle fries, ketchup and ice cream). It wasn’t up to the same standard we’d become accustomed to but like to think it was a one-off as they grapple with the current situation.

Really good food and service! I am a coeliac and my partner and I decided to book a table whilst the Eat Out to Help Out scheme was running. I was pleasantly surprised by the efficient service and tasty food, as I had been to this Ed's before and the service and food were average. The gluten-free options are great, and the food was cooked fresh to order.

Hair found in Mac and cheese. Reported to waitress who informed the manager. Manager didn’t even come and apologise.
Only 1 out of 4 staff in kitchen area had a hair net on correctly. Manager informed at end of meal and she didn’t even go and ask the staff to correctly place the nets.

No hotdogs, not chilli seasonings, no J20 drinks....poor
Very poor will def not return to any of your restaurants

Visited for lunch with my children. The server was great and made sure we got a table quickly and had everything we needed. Expected an America diner experience for my boys but we were in the outer area so couldn’t hear the music or see much of the decor really (not that there was much to see) The food was just ok, hot dogs couldn’t be picked up as the bread buns split so just eat sausage with a knife and fork. My sons burger had very fatty bacon in it and Waffle fries were a bit cold and not too tasty, overall if I’d paid full price for the food I would have been extremely disappointed. Even at 50% off I thought it was expensive for what it was. Wouldn’t go again.

Nothing fantastic, my son got a simple burger that was just put on a plate, no salad or lettuce. I had the coney island hotdog, was also not too impressed. I won't be going back I'm sorry to say

Great place to eat, fantastic service from friendly staff considering how busy they were. Shame that the music couldn’t be heard but guessing as it was busy that’s why. My daughters loved their food, my all day breakfast was a little cold to be honest. Drinks very expensive to make up for the “refillable” part could have a single serving price for those that only want one drink.
Alanis served us and was fantastic! Friendly, knowledgeable and really takes time for customers no matter how busy.
