Amazing food for the price of the set menu, the food was stunning to look at and tasted equally good.
Efficient, friendly but unobtrusive service. Good atmosphere, lively without being overwhelming. Food was really lovely, the appetisers were a lot bigger than anticipated as were our mains, this meant we sadly had no room for desert!! The food is visually appealing and very fresh and tasty, good veggie and vegan options. Also really fairly priced - would absolutely visit again when in Chester.
Great menu. Friendly staff. Food and wine excellent. Would highly recommend.
This was my 4th or 5th visit, it’s becoming a firm favourite. The food is outstanding every time, portion sizes are brilliant.... not a fan of restaurants that serve huge portions so these always allow me to enjoy three courses.
Cocktails are always amazing too ❤️
Fantastic meal & my friend was very impressed on her first visit. You’ve got a new fan!
Love the Chef's Table, the food is always unbelievably tasty. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Thoroughly recommend that you visit. You won't be disappointed
Excellent as always. Lovely food and friendly helpful service. Been here lots of times and never disappoints. Very well set up for Covid and felt very safe.
We were shown to a table in the corner of the room which was right next to the bar, my head was literally on the bar, too close for comfort really. Waitress brought menus took drinks order all very nice etc, but it wasn't until later a different waitress served a table next to us and produced a specials board, unfortunately we had already ordered, otherwise I would of chosen a main from the specials, somewhat disappointing. Service felt a little rushed, as if to get through the order as quick as possible, food was very nice and enjoyable, just those few things took the edge off a celebration evening for us. Unlikely we'll be returning.
Food is gorgeous every time we have visited! Staff were great and really nice! We felt really safe too with this covid situation. We always recommend to friends to try there and we are already looking forward to booking again
The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Service was also very good and will be returning soon!!
Enjoyed a fabulous lunch here and were made to feel very welcome on arrival. The food was amazing accompanied by a very nice bottle of wine. Service was great with friendly staff. We both felt that cleanliness and social distancing measures were adhered to and can’t wait to go back
Food as always was fantastic! The belly pork starter melted in your mouth and the sweet corn purée accompaniment was lovely. Service was great and really friendly. Restaurant small and relaxed. Fine dining with decent portion sizes and at an affordable price. We’ll be back....again.
Food was absolutely stunning. Catered very well for coeliac diner.
Diners need to try all the different food\flavour blends, as they have got it just right.
Wine list wasn’t great and had a lot of “sold out”.
No port for the cheese afterwards either ~ “sold out”.
Not sure we were 1 metre apart re Covid but then again guidelines keep changing!
Wishing this independent restaurant the best of luck in these challenging times.
Very well organised for health and safety in the situation we are in.
Staff very pleasant and efficient even though having to wear face coverings .
Food was very tasty and appealing,even tried frogs legs which I had never tried before and will now have again .Overall Excellent.
Lovely to be back. Food and service the best Chester.
Sometimes it's the little touches that add to a meal- the shape of the wine glass, the napkin or the white gloss of a plate. The Chef's Table gives you these little touches. A member of our party is gluten allergic, and she received her own menu. Another telling little touch.
This is even before we explore the food's quality, its bomb-like effect on the taste senses and the presentation. Between us we had aubergine soup, sea bass and sea bream. Each cooked to provide a culinary surprise-the pomegranate seeds with the soup- the small onions under the fish. We cannot discuss the puddings-sadly, we were too full to order any.
The restaurant was COVID aware. Cleanliness was paramount. The staff ALL wore masks. The tables were far apart,
On top of this the price was little more than you'd pay in a far less aware restaurant.
Fantastic meal, hope to go back again soon
Amazing food, portions were much larger than we expected, felt clean and airy, good space between tables (much more so than anywhere else we've eaten since covid19), would highly recommend!
Finally reserved a table in our favourite restaurant in chester, always first class food, never disappointed,
Had an outstanding experience. Loved every minute.
Been waiting for this restaurant to open back up. We had a lovely experience,nice and relaxing atmosphere, fab g&ts, brilliant food and such good value. We went at lunchtime.
Only one small point... only 2white wines to order by the glass and did not like ether, so had to make do with water.😔
Would recommend anyone to go that likes excellent food for a good price.
Chef’s Table was it’s usual high standard and it’s a joy to eat here. The Sea Bream ceviche starter was wonderful in terms of taste and artistic arrangement.
Excellent value lunch, food is unusual, delicious and beautifully presented, highly recommend
Delicious food and drink, delightful staff. Tables very well spaced and clearly adhering closely to Covid rules, lots of cleaning & hand sanitising evident in the kitchen and restaurant
I love the food here. Never had a bad meal and the kids menu was fab too, just smaller portions for the most part.
Food was perfect, as usual. Great location especially after a walk around the cathedral. All felt very relaxing . Service and staff outstanding.
Our 1st visit since they reopened. Sumptuous innovative food. A warm welcome. So glad they are still open. We will go back v.soon
Wonderful meal as always, keeping standards up over many years.
This was my anniversary delayed 6 months due to lockdown. I am so please Chefs Table is back and running and just as good as before. The service and food was truly outstanding. I opted for the aracini, Stonebass and Cheesecake. Absolutely perfectly presented and full of taste. Thank you for great night
The food was delicious the staff were friendly & welcoming it’s a small but cosy place. I’ve been before and have booked to go again
As always the food was fantastic, the staff helpful & friendly. Such a treat to be able to go back again. Really exceptional as always. Thank you to all the staff. It was like seeing my husband reunited with an old friend when the chocolate fondant appeared. A lovely lunch
Best in Chester. Consistently 10 out of 10 for every plate. Great cocktails too. Recommended.
Incredible as always, everyone needs to try the electric daisy.
Food as usual was excellent. Thanks to all the staff.
Had a really lovely meal with excellent quality wine served by friendly and helpful staff
It was a birthday dinner for my partner, the ladies who served the food and drink greeted us as soon as we walked in through the door and their service was very attentive.
The food as it is every time was wonderful, we enjoyed every mouthful. My partner had the key lime cheesecake for pudding and said it was the best desert he had ever had.
Well done Chefs Table we will be back 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Had a beautiful meal here. Lovely atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
A fantastic place! The food is fabulous, exciting combinations & very tasty .
Lunchtime dining for our anniversary, small choice of food but very nice but chips had black bits on. Wine special not available as last bottle bought only 12.15.
Great to see Chef’s table open again. The food seems even more exquisite with an exciting menu, good portions and delicious ingredients and flavours. The staff cope well with the new restrictions and still offer the same outstanding service. Thanks for a lovely evening it’s good to see you back.
