Brilliant ! Such an excellent place for a great meal . The scallops were amazing .
Thank you so much
Amazing, innovative food. Chefs who are passionate about their craft, knowledgeable front of house staff. What’s not to love? Chef’s Table is our Number 1 restaurant.
If you appreciate good, local produce cooked perfectly, then book a table here.
Excellent choice of food and great value for money. The surf and turf was very tasty, lovely scallop with very tender belly pork and spicy chorizo. Lamp rump for main was pink and melted in your mouth with very complimentary accompaniments. Dessert was rich dark chocolate treat. Always have great food and service here.
Always excellent - never ever had anything less outstanding at this restaurant.
Excellent pre Christmas dinner!! Super tasty, amazing food, great service
Amazing food, beautifully presented and perfectly cooked, well worth the wait for a table
Outstanding food and service, as always!
My son tells me that they had the best meal they have had for a long time and that is quite a compliment as they are choosy foodies. They have promised me a meal with you if/when we can make it to Chester- we look forward with great anticipation.
Happy Christmas and the best possible 2021. Keep safe. Stay well and keep, when possinle, serving excellent food.
Amazing little restaurant, wonderful food and staff
Great food and service. Always a pleasure to dine here.
Wonderful as always! Never disappoints. Second visit within two weeks, 2 different meals both, as beautiful and tasty as each other!
Excessive stereo noise causing much louder conversation levels.
Nauseating air and inadequate ventilation.
Service staff inexperienced showing little attention, working with bandaged hands, gripping cups near the rim etc.
Food presentation was the only positive.
Flavours clashed, poorly seasoned.
All vegan dishes “constructed” from the regular menu and basically just leaving out the meat.
Note: The entire experience was like being in a completely different restaurant compared to previous visits.
We won’t be going back.
Whoever has taken it over now we wish them well, but you have lost our enthusiasm entirely.
Fantastic meal as always chef’s table never fails to deliver a first class experience
Always a good atmosphere and the food is always of a very good standard
Food and service was at its finest, would recommend to anyone
As ever, Chef's table continues to delight, this time with a stunning festive selection just in time for Christmas.
4 stars on food rather than 5 only because I had food envy for my partners choice!
Exceptional food and service - the quality and taste of the food was outstanding - arguably Michelin quality. A jewel in Chesters crown - a true hidden gem.
First time back in a while and the food was better than ever.
Food and service consistently excellent. Ambience is understandably a little subdued due to Covid restrictions.
Delicious food - beautifully presented amazing value
Friendly welcome. Covid measures in place. Fantastic food. Festive Duck roast dinner and Xmas pud.(loads of cherries, egg nog custard etc. Beautiful) Only downside is, when I cook Christmas Dinner it won't taste like that one!! Family get together. thoroughly enjoyed it.
Service was great wasn’t impressed with the food..
Outstanding as ever......missed this place during lockdown.
The food was as usual excellent. I had roast duck and my wife had the nut roast and it was superb. The house wine is high quality to. We will definitely be going again.
The food and service are always impeccable
Went for lunch, lovely food, some slightly quirky combinations on the plate, but worked well. Good choice for GF
Service was brilliant, very friendly and helpful staff.
Great cooking of quality produce and served by professional, friendly staff.
Will revisit asap and recommend highly!

Best food we’ve ever had amazing stuff can’t wait to come back
Food excellent and great value for money.
Excellent lunch on the fixed price menu, lovely food which we both couldn’t fault. Great service, lovely staff
Went for a birthday meal upon many glowing recommendations, and we were not disappointed! Incredible food, very pleasant atmosphere. Thank you to all at The Chef's Table for a wonderful evening. Looking forward to going back!
As ever we had an amazing meal. Particularly impressed by the mushroom soup and the Xmas pudding. Service was excellent too.
Excellent food as always, had the 3 course lunch menu, every course was delicious!
Despite the challenges that the COVID precautions bring, the service was still very friendly and efficient.
Beautiful starter and main course and friendly staff. We were a bit disappointed in the dessert, a chocolate brownie which was more like a big slice of chocolate cake rather than a brownie. But overall a lovely meal.
The food was all fantastic. Superb duck in particular
Fabulous! Gorgeous food and brilliant evening all round
What an exceptional place. The vegan food was outstanding as always and the wine and cocktails were amazing Excellent, friendly service. An absolute treat to dine here. Happy Xmas Chef and team and thankyou for a lovely night x
A celebratory meal for two at lunchtime, food was outstanding with good friendly service. Have visited twice before but each time it excels.
