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.

This was our first visit to the Chefs Table in Chester, and we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. There was a buzzy atmosphere of happy diners and those anticipating there forthcoming meal. We were not disappointed . Portion sizes were perfect, staff were appropriately attentive and we had a superb meal. Thanks. We look forward to returning in the New Year to try out the lunch menu.

Good food and pleasant surroundings. Service was efficient and friendly without being over-bearing. Previous experience was a limited menu with little vegetarian choices. This occasion there was more variety and welcomed additions to the menu. Overall, good value.

Third experience at Chef’s Table. The food is the best in Chester by far. Not an everyday dining trip but so worth it for that special date.

Big disappointment, dishes not always working in harmony, big taste of fried and place smelt of stale fat.

Steak though was of good quality and cooked exactly as requested, just everything else failed including the wine at £45 really was not worth it.

Outstanding food in a modern setting, tucked away in Chester. A good variety of local foods from a choice of 2 or 3 course meals for a set price during December.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our food and thought it was very reasonably priced for such mouthwatering cuisine.

A welcoming and vibrant restaurant that was fully booked on a Monday evening, despite being tucked away in a dark passage.
The food was exceptional, creative, well presented and delicious. As someone who is gluten intolerant it was refreshing to be given a menu that is 100% gluten free and still full of choice.
Definitely worth a trip in to Chester, this is true fine-dining.

We enjoyed Sunday lunch here. Initially a little disappointed that they had run out of roast dinners (it was after 3pm!) but we chose the beef dish from the main menu and it was beautifully cooked. We will certainly return.

Been here on a number of occasions, and been impressed. However this time we both had different starters and mains and both felt the food was over salted. A nice bottle of wine was washed down with two carafes of water to take away the taste of salt !
Chorizo appeared in a number of dishes and the taste overpowered the other ingrediants eg the Hake which was lost once you had a mouthful of Chorizo.
People at next table also said to each other that their food was over seasoned.
Maybe the head Chef was off ?

This must have been the 6th time visiting this restaurant. The chefs table is always on point with cuisine and service. The staff are attentive and very friendly, the food is absolutely unbelievable, and the decor is very cosy and warm. The hidden gem of the north west. If you like good food ina. Casual setting then I suggest you book up now. You will not be disappointed!!

Service was good,staff upfront knowledgable and willingness to please also pleasant,quality of food very good for price,what I mean is yes you could get better food but you’d have to pay a lot more,and probably get a difference in comfort and surrounding but not a great leap in cuisine,looking forward to returning,thanks to all chefs table,Bob.

This place has a great reputation and based on our visit, it's fully deserved.

We went for lunch mid week. Nice, quiet ish atmos, great service and exceptional food. The food certainly looks the part but more importantly, it tastes fantastic. Local, seasonal menu.

Not cheap, but still good value for money. Highly recommended.
