The Chef’s Table is a small independent restaurant in the heart of Chester city centre, offering the best local produce in their seasonal and constantly changing menus.
They work very closely with all their suppliers but especially alongside a team of organic growers called The Natural Veg Men whom are situated 15 miles from the restaurant and allow the chefs to work with amazing produce that influences their menus.

At lunch they offer a smaller a la carte menu with an amazing offer of 2 courses for £18 and 3 course for £22, and then in the evening there is a full a la carte menu which offers a wide range of choice with lots of innovative original dishes using some of the best produce that is available to them.

This restaurant offers a relaxed fine dining atmosphere, where everything is set up to give the guest an unique dining experience.

A very small restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere and extremely professionally run by accommodating staff. Nothing was too much trouble. My husband cannot cut up his food due to suffering a stroke. When staff saw me cutting up the meat in his starter, they discreetly asked if we would prefer 'chef ' to cut it up for us. What an excellent idea!! They then arranged for my husband's main course to be cut up ready for him to eat. It sounds silly, but this was so thoughtful as it meant we could both start to eat at the same time. We definitely will eat there again.

Slightly disappointed the menu and the wine list seem much more restrictive than it used to be. Service was excellent and the food was good but unfortunately it didn’t quite hit the mark...

A small but well chosen menu . The vegan meals were good. My wife felt that perhaps the very nicely cooked Hake was slightly lost in a sauce that was a bit too spicy. The puddings were brilliant . The 2 wines we had ( small glass ) were good quality albeit not cheap. The espresso was a touch bitter and not really quite big enough. Tables close but nice ambience . A very interesting place and worth a revisit. In addition the service was very good.

The only reason I gave 5 stars is because I couldn't give 10. The food is out of this world. I think chefs table will have to move to bigger premises soon. Very impressive.

Amazing food and lovely service!
Reasonably priced for the high standard of food. Portions on the smaller size which is ideal when your having 3 courses. The staff we’re lovely and very helpful. I would recommend chefs table and will be sure to visit again.

We visited here for a romantic birthday meal, there is definitely a young vibe to the place, say 30 somethings .This venue is quite small with about 28 covers, hence dining times are critical.
The menu is imaginative and adventurous including items such as crispy pigs ears, which neither of us opted for.
Overall, although the food was good , it was not for us, prices were mid range for the quality.

I've been visiting the Chef's Table for 4 years. Despite a constantly changing menu, the food is consistently exciting and delicious. It's rare to be able to enjoy such high quality cooking and be full at the end of it, and all for a sensible price. Lunch always represents outstanding value, especially on Sunday, when you'll struggle to find a superior roast anywhere. The waitstaff are also knowledgeable and service is exemplary. If you could only eat at one restaurant in Chester, it should be at the Chef's Table.

We have not been in Chester for over a year but this is always our restaurant of choice when we visit and we were not disappointed as it is still as good as ever! The menu isn't massive but it is really interesting and creative and all the young ladies who looked after us were really friendly and efficient and described what made up each dish. It was pretty busy on a Wednesday so make sure you book!

The food is wonderful and the menu imaginative. The only downside is the noise level from background music in what is quite a tiny restaurant. We found the waitresses failing to understand our requests in two respects, and apparently finding the noise level a problem too.
