Center Cut Filet Mignon
A/C was out. They were up front about it when we arrived, but would have liked to have been called when we placed the reservation. It was hard to enjoy the food when it was that hot inside.
Everything else was great!
Server was amazing. Food was Great. Air-conditioner was broken so it was way hot but they made the best of a bad situation.
The best thing was the service. We felt the food was just so-so. We had calamari to start with and it was tasty if a bit chewy. Our salads were good. My dinner partner had a filet which arrived on plate with nothing else on it. A sprig of parsley or something might made a better appearance. On the other hand, my trout was well decorated and look appetizing although the sauce on it pretty much masked the flavor of the trout. The creme brulee was excellent.
We probably won't go back any time soon.
Food was great, service was good except for the dessert order took 25 minutes for a tumbleweed and 2 ice creams. The atmosphere was not so good. It was extremely warm inside with some kind of portable coolers and fans set up everywhere. This may have been related to the ongoing construction or maybe an HVAC failure. I would have preferred if we had been informed from the start that it would be that way and have the choice to come when the building was in better condition. Thank-you, Diane Elder
Service was inattentive for a period. Food unremarkable.
The good was fantastic. The service was excellent. The pricing on add ons was a little more than I thought it should be. I would for sure go back. The best filet and scallop I've ever had! The ceaser salad was amazing! Everything was great!
Didn’t have our reservation, so they couldn’t accommodate our request for a booth. Sat us near the wait station & kitchen so it was noisy and lots of traffic. Service was very slow. Disappointed.
Excellent service and excellent food! A good place to go for an outstanding experience in fine dining.
Another great Friday evening adventure at Chester’s thanks to our waiter Yonick who understands the nuances of food and drink ingredients and describes them in detail. Great filet and an inventive mahi mahi special we’ll remember. Good warm ambiance and excellently managed. We will be back soon!
Server was great—knowledgeable about special dietary needs. Very pleasant experience.
The waiter, Austin, was awesome. He made excellent recommendations. Loved the scallops! My husband got the 8-oz. filet which was also delicious. You must also try the charcuterie board!
This place is amazing!!!! Our waiter was so attentive and very helpful with this being our first time.
Our waiter Corbin was amazing. The food was incredible. Lovely evening.
Our server and food runners were darling. We really enjoyed them, and our overall experience was lovely.
Service was great. Very attentive staff. I would recommend this restaurant for business entertainment.
As always, the beef (filet mignon) was top-notch. Service was excellent. One slight criticism of the food: the calamari was chewy and uneven in texture (in the past it has always been perfect, crunchy and very warm). The music should be stopped. Since it was crowded and loud talking, all we could hear in the music was the thump, thump of the bass line (we are musicians) - couldn't even hear the singer, or the words - so why bother? Just turn it off and let's have a nice meal. ALSO: I realize construction was going on but the A/C was not working properly; it was a very warm, toasty evening. I saw a fan blowing (why?) but then the waiters turned it off. Anyway, we will definitely return just to get that beef!!!
We had a lovely experience for my birthday dinner! My wife, father and myself enjoyed our appetizer, salad, fish and steak. The service was solid. We will be back.
It has been years since we have eaten at Chester's. Great food, awesome drinks, and incredible desserts.
Our experience was AMAZING! EVERYONE was pleasant, kind and thoughtful! Our waiter was EXCELLENT! He was efficient, attentive, funny, and recommended the perfect, delicious French red Pinot Noire....that was NOT the most expensive! The food was OUTSTANDING! Try to save room for dessert and get a TUMBLEWEED! 🙌🏻❤️ Thank you for giving FANTASTIC dining experience to a girl from Kansas City! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
They did a super especially our server Kot.
Waited 20 minutes after being seated before any wait staff arrived to begin our order. Had to go up to the hostess stand for assistance.
The food was amazing.
Our server was excellent, he seemed to be running a lot. Maybe too many customers at one time. Our service was very slow. We arrived @ 6:30 and left around 8pm. We didn't have appetizers or a salad and it took a long time for our food to arrive. we ordered cheescake for dessert ...amazing, but took a while to get it and we ordered coffee with it, fresh pot..we love the spice merchant...we were finished with the dessert before our coffee arrived.
I don't think these service problems are all on our server.
We loved that you support local businesses.
We always have a great experience but was not the case last night. Our steaks came out with no sides. Our server forgot to put them in
We then got our sides, we had left overs and wanted to take them home, our server forgot and we didn’t get the sides to take home.
Service was very slow. It’s just never been like that when we go to Chesters.
Great service and outstanding food.
Our waiter Dakota was amazing! Food was top notch!!! Couldn’t of dined at a better spot!! On top of my list for “date night”
Filets cooked perfectly, green beans and grilled corn, delicious! The delicious bread and dipping oil starts the dinner and was amazing.
My husband and I were celebrating our 32 anniversary. The food and service was excellent, truly the best steaks we have had in Wichita. Not a lot of ambience, noise level moderate not necessarily a romantic atmosphere.
I don’t think the AC was working as it was uncomfortably warm and my husband was in a sports jacket.
Last night before we left our son for his first full time job and an early Father’s Day
Unfortunately, a large part of their air conditioning was down. They did what they could to make people comfortable. Our server was outstanding and the food was very goo. I will go back, but only if the AC is working.
It was our first time eating back at Chester’s for over a year due to the pandemic. Our waiter was great. He was friendly and very attentive. But, we were very disappointed in the food. My old school garlic salad had a faint back flavor of fish? The mozzarella cheese in another salad was incredibly salty. I’ve gotten the crab cakes for years which had gone through various evolutions. I was not able to eat the crab cakes. They were shiny with oil and difficult to cut. They almost had the texture of a sausage patty. I did discuss with the waiter and ordered the roasted chicken for my entree instead. The chicken was just ok. The carrot cake for dessert was a different take on carrot cake. It was a generous sized piece and very light in texture. The trout entree was reportedly very good by another person in my party. Chester’s used to be our favorite place to eat but I’m not certain we will be returning anytime soon.
Made reservations to have 9yr olds bday at chester's he wanted a steak when our waiter found out we weren't eating steaks he lost interest in our table we hardly seen him the other waitresses refilled our drinks we wanted to leave then but we're waiting for Austin's cake for his bday it never came you would think that expensive of a restaurant would take better care of their customers I said something we got a piece of cake and a sparkler to take home just not the same
The food was great seat us quick because of our reservation love it
Pretty good food. Loved the service. Only complaint would be the music was too loud in the dining areas. Tough to have conversations without talking loud or leaning in to hear.
What a wonderful experience!! The food was delicious and the service was top notched!
We had the fillet, and it was cooked perfectly and very tender!
Will definitely go back!
It was very warm and humid. It did not feel like the AC was working. It made it difficult to enjoy a hot meal.
Best restaurant in Wichita. Amazing steak cooked to perfection.
Our experience was just OK. The restaurant was very warm, not sure if there was an air conditioning issue that was the problem but it was a full house & we were nearly sweating. Our server seemed very busy, maybe too many tables. We ordered salads that were never delivered, they were taken off the tab but it was disappointing. Our steaks were just OK, excellent quality meat and perfect temperature but the seasoning was very bland. We did enjoy the birthday firecracker sundae and tumbleweed to celebrate our son's birthday, it was a nice touch!
The AC was out and it was hot, luckily they were quick and the food was good.
Not a good value for the price paid. We did not feel like anyone cared that much we reserved a table in the dining room for an anniversary and the hostess tried to seat my wife in the bar. We split a steak as they are very large and the plates have nothing on them but the steak, not even a garnish; i thought we were having dinner at the local diner by the presentation. They are not keeping up with much higher quality at far less expensive steak houses.
