    Server was very friendly, cheese dip appetizer was cold when it came out, raspberry mule cocktail was extremely bitter and didn’t have any ice so it was just luke warm, didn’t drink it. For my main I had the chicken wrap and it was okay, didn’t have much flavour.

    My partner and I hosted our "Welcome Party" the night before our wedding on the top floor of the George Street location and it was just phenomenal. The staff was incredible, the food was amazing and the vibe was perfect. We're so grateful to have kicked off our wedding weekend in such an amazing way - Thank you, Electric Diner Team!

    The hostest wasn't the most pleasant and our server seemed lost and dazed. Took a long time to get a tea and I couldn't take any pics of my drink cuz the cotton candy had already dissolved meaning it was sitting for a while before being brought to me. The food was excellent as per usual.

    I had reservations for 3 for noon today. I asked for a table downstairs but was given a table upstairs (I’m pregnant and have difficulties with stairs). We stressed to our server upon arrival that we were on a time crunch on our lunch break and needed to be out by 1. She said no problem just don’t order the pancakes as they can take 40 minutes. 2 of us ordered poutines, 1 ordered avocado toast and fries. After 45 minutes we asked if our food would be ready soon as we were at the point of needing for it to be packed up. We were then told that they had put up a sign on the podium stating that they are slower than normal today and food can take upwards of 45 minutes to an hour. We asked if there was an estimate of when it would be ready. The server checked and said there were still 3 orders ahead of us and again told us that they had a small kitchen and had to open a second location because they can’t make orders in a timely manner. Either the sign went up after we arrived or we didn’t see it either way when we told the server at the beginning that we needed to be out by 1:00 we should have been informed that there’s a possibility our food would not be ready or been given a heads up sooner since there were two servers walking around frequently. We were only offered one refill of water and other wise ignored. When the server did come back up it was after 1:00 (we had already paid) and she threw the bag on the table and walked away without even saying a word. When we got back to work (a 5 minute walk away) there was only 1 set of utensils for 3 of us, in one poutine the gravy was congealed and did not look edible, and the other poutine had almost zero gravy on it and very little cheese curds. Service aside we at least expected to get a decent meal after waiting over an hour for our food and we are very disappointed at the lack of quality of it. This is now the third poor experience I’ve had with this restaurant and will likely not return

    Electric Diner George StreetResponded on October 29, 2022We reviewed this with our staff to find out what happened. The manager put you upstairs as its a nicer dining experience-that was our miss that you preferred the main floor-shes certain you didnt mention being disappointed- had she known she would have adjusted! You ordered at 12:12 & left at 12:54- food took just over 1/2 hr after ordering, it was v busy, but we understand you were on lunch break. The utensils was a miss- sorry! Our kitchen is small-we hope this issue will resolve when #2 opens

    Such a great find! I have never been and it is located right in Hess village and such a artsy, trendy and fun place! Food was amazing. I was there for brunch and highly recommend the Kale salad. I chose that instead of fries and sooooo glad I did! Yummy. Definitely want to go again.

    To all prospective diners… Spend your money elsewhere. The Mrs. ordered the French Toast Crunch… the item should be called Cinnamon soggy oily mess. Do not eat here unless you are vying for a terrible customer service and culinary experience. Even though this did was disgusting and sent back, when it came time to settle up, I was surprised to see the French Toast on the bill. When I requested the item be removed from the bill, the waitress seemed very combative and did not want to remove the item. When I indicated this is the only experience I’ve had where a strongly disliked item remained on the bill, only then did the waitress relent and said she could reach out to the owner. Clearly the owner has trust issues and is a control freak. There should be a team member on the premises to make managerial decisions. Clearly this is an insecure, pathetic individual who is incapable of taking any sort of criticism. The person managing the account did not have the decency to address this issue and lack any sort of accountability. There were a couple of negative critiques posted on Instagram, all of the comments were deleted and I was blocked and no longer to able share my opinion.

    Electric Diner George StreetResponded on October 29, 2022As we explained to your wife Danielle, the Toast Crunch is described as deep fried. We offered to replace her item (which is our policy when someone doesn’t like an item, yet there is nothing wrong with it) and she denied that option. She also admitted to your server that she misread the menu where it was described as deep fried. We understand she didn’t like the item because of your misread- we tried to fix it by replacing it, which we think is totally fair. She paid for the item she ordered.

    Disappointed in the service. Service team was very dry and unwelcoming. The greeter at the door didn’t even lift her head up from her phone to tell us where our party is. Our server was very rude and unwelcoming. The food looked amazing but came freezing cold. The only hot item on the poutine I got was the gravy. The curds felt like they came out of a freezer. I’ve been to this establishment multiple times and enjoyed it, this was hands down the most disappointing visit I’ve paid it yet.

    Electric Diner George StreetResponded on September 22, 2022Hi there- Friday they were short staffed and very busy. This is likely why their heads were down and trying to keep focus on making sure service was quick, and perhaps came off stressed rather than friendly. These things can happen- we will review your feedback with the team, but it was definitely not normal as you know from your past experiences. If food is cold, please inform your server so they can remake your item. It should never be cold! We hope you understand and come back.

    Our server was awesome, the food is excellent. I highly recommend. As the kitchen is small, at a busy time, i'd recommend checking out the website so you can order as soon as you get there. But at this experience, our server was SO fast and SO good despite getting double/triple sat near the end of our meal.
