    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.

    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 DinerResponded 7 days agoHi 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.

    I love electric diner. It’s a fun place to go for some yummy food. My rating was only 3 stars this night because the service was incredibly slow. The servers were trying their best, but were short staffed on a quiz night. Many tables nearby were complaining about the lack of attention. We ordered drinks, and waited 20 mins for them to arrive. The same for the food and second round of drinks. The stress of the servers and clientele made the experience less enjoyable.

    Electric DinerResponded on August 24, 2022Hey Stephanie! Trivia night is the one night where service is not normal. Since everyone sits at once, drink and food orders also come in at once. Usually trivia goers expect a bit of a wait, but are ok with it since there are a few hours of playing to be had! We'll make sure our staff explain this when seating people going forward.

    We found the service to be very slow, both in taking our order and delivery of food. We had children in our group that were very hungry and it was difficult to keep them happy. The food was not hot when we received it and for the price was not anything special. Sometimes the fancy toppings are not as important as the quality and flavour of the food.

    Electric DinerResponded on August 24, 2022Hi Cheryl- thanks for the feedback re service. Part of our training is seeing the big picture and ensuring tables with little ones receive food a little quicker. Sound like it didn't happen this time. We will review this with the team. Thank you!

    The waitress was very pleasant and courteous. The food was a disappointment. The potatoes and eggs were cold. The poached eggs were not cooked as requested. The wait was reasonable, but unsure why a couple seated after us, received their food first. Costly.

    Electric DinerResponded on August 24, 2022Hi there- we've been getting a lot of "cold food" feedback ever since we installed a powerful AC unit in the kitchen to help the staff out in there. We're working on fixing this issue. Re receiving food after someone sat after you- this can happen sometimes. Food doesn't necessarily come out in order to which they were punched in- some items take longer than others, like pancakes for example. Hope that helps clarify things. Thanks!

    I really want to like this place. We've been a few times, but it's only okay. We've been for dinner and twice for trivia. The trivia host is pretty full of himself and asks obscure trick questions. Our last time I had to send back a drink after waiting a long time for service. I don't think we'll be back.

    Electric DinerResponded on August 24, 2022We think Trivia Matt is great! If the questions were easy, it wouldn't be fun :) Trivia nights are very different- everyone sits at the same time, so drinks and food can take a while. For the most part, trivia goers are aware of this and since they are there for several hours playing, they don't mind there is a bit of a wait. We hope you try us again, maybe on a night without trivia!

    Service is very slow, food is okay at best, but over the top visually for Instagram, the drinks are pretty good, but again clearly for Instagram pictures, We've tried it twice and service was bad and slow both times, fries over salted, eggs overcooked etc. and bill over $100 for drinks and meal for 2 not including tip

    Electric DinerResponded on August 24, 2022Hi Megan- I see you came on the holiday Monday. Weekend and holiday brunches are especially busy. For this reason, there is a disclaimer at the door explaining that food could take up to an hour due to our kitchen restrictions. Sorry you didn't like the food- I hope you said something to your server so we could have done something about it for you while you were there!

    We arrived and were given refillable drinks, we had to ask for refills as wait staff was not overly attentive. The food was poor. The French fries were not great I ordered fish n chips the oil must have been old or not hot because the fish tasted burned and oil soaked. The Mac n cheese had no flavour. I paid the bill and afterwards approached the waitress to offer some constructive feedback and she just looked at me as if I was stupid. I left with my family whom are all adults and will never recommend or return.

    Really cool place, but reserved for a date and asked for cute area, was put in the upstairs corner by the kitchen/fridge area. It was the least aesthetic and was disappointed as waitresses kept coming in and out of the area.
