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.

Stunning food. The steak was perfectly cooked, the truffle mash was the best I’ve ever tasted and everything about the dishes was superb. Beautifully presented and carefully constructed dishes. Basil sorbet was special and mind blowing. A team of extremely talented chefs. Thank you so much!!

A small restaurant in a prime location at the centre of Chester, close to the cathedral. The waitresses were warm and friendly and most attentive. The food was well presented and for the most part - perfectly cooked. The focaccia bread was below par, along with the olive oil accompanying the balsamic. The receptcle for which was not suitable for this dish - you are forced to soak over an inch of oil before getting to the vinegar. Also, the frogs legs were in a very heavy batter which was not to my liking & the side of vegetables was quite a pathetic portion consisting mainly of peas. On a positive note, the rib eye was one of, if the THE, best pieces of rib eye I’ve ever had, cooked perfectly. The chips are also excellent. Mixed feelings on this one I’m afraid. 7/10

Superb food as normal spoilt slightly by an incredibly noisy table with one particularly screechy diner who found everything TOO funny. To their credit, the Restaurant apologised twice. And I accept you can’t screen all your customers for the volume of laughter.

Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant, the food was brilliant as was the menu. Although the menu is not extensive allows for all dietary needs. How good can a soup be, well could not surpass the pea and watercress as this was exceptional for taste and colour. Was my birthday and one to remember. The staff are very welcoming and very attentive, and was food was every bit as good as my last visit. Unfortunately we were to full to have a dessert, maybe next time will have to have main course and dessert. Would leave photo's but had already started to eat before thinking about taking them.

Food fantastic but new wine list disappointingly expensive and only one choice of white wine by the glass. We have previously liked the fact that the drinks prices were not over inflated like other restaurants but that appears to have changed.

It was very difficult i.e. impossible to contact you by phone, even phoning at different times during the day and evening. Eventually we had to book online which is not our preferred choice of booking as we like to speak to someone, but perhaps it is yours, otherwise everything was excellent.

The quality of the food was absolutely superb. Relatively small portions but by the time we'd worked through all the courses we were totally satisfied. Service was very good only slightly let down by the lack of observation when we were ready for the bill. A very picky point but when everything else was so good it stood out. Relatively pricey but I would say worth every penny. I'll definitely be going back.

Excellent food - loved the appetisers - especially the chicken wings with blue cheese. service excellent - very good waitress - friendly, cheerful and helpful. The outstanding aspect was the sorbet - the mint was so fresh - not had one like that before. Brilliant.

The Chef's Table is one of the best restaurants in the area. Everything was of the highest standard and the staff were exceptional. It is an added bonus being able to watch the chefs working - it's a real experience! My Australian cousins dined with us and haven't stopped talking about the evening since then! Highly recommended.

Fantastic food, great service. You get what you pay for. My only,minor, criticisms would be the wine list isn't broad (we did enjoy our wine) and there isn't really anything by way of port/ madeira etc as you might expect at a restaurant of this caliber. Otherwise up there with the best! Sub £100 for 2 starters, 2 mains, a dessert, bottle of red and two glasses of cava.... brill.

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.

We stumbled across The Chefs Table whilst walking around Chester during the day and we are delighted we did! I think we were lucky to get a table that evening. Amazing service with very knowledgable and friendly staff. Excellent food choices both for me and my friend who is Vegan. 3 options per course, she was literally spoiled for choice!! The owners have not been greedy and tables are well spaced. A fabulous evening. What a gem!! 10/10

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!!

Tiny restaurant where you can see the young chefs cook with verve and panache but quietly . We loved the subtle interesting tiny different flavours in each dish. Could have done with a cocktail fork to spear the blueberries floating in the exciting flavoured Cheshire Grin drink
