First visit to this restaurant and I'll definitely be back. It was a taste sensation and the flavours were fantastic. The menu is compact however great variety and clearly the chef's execute the dishes with finesse. The portion sizes were also perfect; I am usually a one course person however managed starter and main with ease. It is a great experience whilst being excellent value for money; no wonder it gets booked up quickly.

My hope and expectation was for a good meal in pleasant surroundings, the reviews suggested this would be the case. I was totally unprepared for a meal of the highest quality. Choice ingredients skilfully and imaginatively cooked, beautifully presented in a refined atmosphere by excellent staff. This was quite simply one of the best food experiences I have enjoyed in many months, nay years. I am no stranger to fine dining and this was right up there with the best Michelin dining experiences I have had. Was it value for money? Hell yeah! I would have happily paid half as much again and considered I had had good value. I would go out of my way to eat here again and at the risk of having trouble getting a booking again, I would strongly recommend anyone to eat here, it's a must if you are in the area. DO NOT MISS THIS!

Had a fantastic meal with friends. Both are vegetarian and there was a great choice. A salmon starter was fantastic as was the oxtail ravioli. Mains of Swordfish and slow cooked pork belly were superb. Only slight negative was a very limited wine list with three of the more reasonably priced options being unavailable. Overall a great experience with wonderful staff.

The food here is, in my opinion, Michelin Star quality! We were blown away by the beautiful presentation and then the tastes put together. Fantastic! We will definitely return. It was not cheap, and the service, although very near perfect, could have been slightly better. We asked for salt, the girl then took ages finding it but gave us an empty salt mill. Nitpicking I know but its the only area that could improve. It really was the best meal I've EVER eaten in Chester. And I've been around a VERY long time!

Chefs table is one of my absolute favourite small restaurant experiences. The staff are always brilliant, the food is delicious and its a great little spot in town. The only tiny criticism I would have (and I am being REALLY picky) is that this visit our server didn't walk us through what was on each plate so we weren't exactly sure what each element was. They have done this on all our previous visits and its really useful so just an oversight I'm sure. We could have asked but were in a bit of a rush so just got on with it. The food was fantastic though!

Whilst the Chef's table restaurant is quite modest in size and fairly spartan, where it comes to furnishings and decor, this is more than compensated for by the quality of food and service.

A wide enough range of delicious meals was available, from appetizers through to deserts and all of the quite discerning customers in our group were very impressed.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others, with a very slight cautionary note regarding the overall sense of 'luxury'. If that's what you;re looking for, this isn't the place but if it's top quality food you;re after, it certainly is!

Have meant to go to Chef’s Table for some time but been unable to book.
Went this week for a late lunch for my Wife’s birthday and loved it .
Food execeptional - dessert - rhubarb - one of the best if not the best I’ve ever had .
Service and atmosphere very good although could be a trifle noisy at times when full.
Exceptional value at lunchtime and will definitely revisit with family and friends.

We used to think that the Chef's Table was the best place to eat in Chester. After our recent dinner there, I'm not sure that this is still true. The vegetarian option was poor - it had no exciting flavours and was basically diced potato with peas and beans added. I had no idea what the soup was meant to be - it was listed as sweet potato with ginger and garlic, but was bland to put it mildly. The waitress charged us for the wrong bottle of wine - luckily we spotted her error. And it was extremely busy which meant it was too noisy for a quiet conversation. Where have all those delicious dishes full of subtle and exciting flavours gone? If they don't re-appear on the menu, I'm not sure that we'll be going back, which is a shame.
