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.

Came here for lunch with boyfriend. Can’t believe how good value it is for the quality of the food and the menu. One of the puddings had collapsed in the kitchen, which meant we had to wait a bit. They apologised profusely and we got a free round of drinks and both the desserts free too! Exceptional service , we’ll definitely be back again :)

My duck starter arrived which was very pink, I normally ask for it to be cooked more, however it was absolutely gorgeous. Stone bass for my main, this was outstanding. Managed a sweet (just). Third time I have visited now & the food never fails to impress. Menu a little out of the ordinary, but five stars for every course. Can’t wait to go back.

Excellent food and good service, let down by small tables and uncomfortable seating, plus not being able to have the table longer - I couldn’t finish my coffee as the ‘second sitting ‘was due!!! I felt rushed as they needed my seat , this spoiled the end of our evening - which was in fact a wedding anniversary celebration!!

A small venue that delivers amazing food, with great service. Whilst the menu is compact, the plates of food were simply delicious. Nice to see the chefs working too (and they must be the quietest working chefs we've ever seen!). Highly recommended.

Have wanted to go to Chef’s Table for a while and it didn’t in any way disappoint. The food was among the best I’ve ever had, the service polite, friendly and not overbearing. The ambience was good - though if I was being picky I’d say it was a bit noisy with the open kitchen but actually the whole experience was just stunning - and I don’t say that lightly. I am very particular about food. Well done Chef’s Table we’ll definitely be back!

The restaurant came highly recommended but I feel it didn't live up to the billing. First off we were placed on a table by the door and was subject to the cold coming each time it opened. When a larger group arrived they were stood right on top of us whilst they awaited to be seated. The food. It was patchy. Cauli veloute and cheese scone was lovely. The wild garlic soup was over salted. The duck main was good. The rhubarb dessert was an abomination. My company's food was also hit and miss. Pigeon starter really good, the falafel burger dry and unimaginative. The cod dish came with too much sauce resembling something akin to a soup. The jeu accompanying the white chocolate cheesecake was cringingly tart. To finish we ordered cognac. The glasses had been warmed to such an extent the cognac was hot. So to sum up, some good food, some poor.

We enjoyed every single ingredient! My friend said the Vegetarian Curry was the best she’d ever had. Beautifully presented, efficient and with a smile.
The only thing I would alter is it’s location, it certainly hasn’t got a good view, although it isn’t too busy in the passageway. However once you’re in, welcomed and eating the excellent food you do switch off from that!

The lunch was very good — roast beef was good but the purée of carrots and horseradish was tasteless and very runny which spoilt the whole plate we did ask for horseradish and this they provided
Probably should have stuck to a la carte the quail was fantastic !

Food was excellent, service exemplary from waitress (didn't catch her name, Canadian from Toronto).

Only gripe is smallish tables & uncomfortable chairs but the unit is quite small so understandable.

Overall recommended.
