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 £20 and 3 course for £24, 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.

My partner and I visited the chefs table on Saturday, shortly before our reservation time, I received a call to say our table wasn’t quite ready.

This wasn’t a problem as we were able to go to a local bar for a drink whilst we waited.

By way of apology when we were seated, we were offered a drink on the house.

The food was beautiful, the wine was very palatable and the service was second to none.

All in all a very enjoyable night. Thank you.

Third visit, every trip to Chester, means booking in to the Chef's Table, we love it, the best food we've ever tasted, great service, relaxed atmosphere. My only surprise is that they haven't moved to a larger location!

The food is of a consistently high quality. We try to go there as often as we can. Make sure you book due to its popularity. The prices are reasonable given that you are essentially paying for fine dining.

Very basic environment inside and felt ‘cold’. Furniture is small and cheap but tablewear was of a much better standard. Staff were very pleasant, attentive and knowledgable regarding ingredients. Wine and cocktails were very nice and on the whole food was very nice and presented well. Goose starter was very pleasant however I had the venison to follow. The mash was far too overpowered with garlic and there was a huge amount of berries in the jus which again overpowered the entire plate. Chocolate fondant was exceptional and rescued the meal. Good value for money on lunch deal but spoilt by the careless main course.

It was our first visit to the Chefs Table, and we had been recommended, and we were thoroughly pleased with everything. Staff were very obliging and pleasant, service was excellent, and the food was exceptional. We would certainly recommend your restaurant to our friends and family, and we will definitely be returning. Keep up the high standards. Thank you. Pam and Graham from Mold.

We had different dishes.
I had the goose and venison
My wife had the brucetta followed by the cod.

The cod was not to our liking. It had an overbearing smoked taste wish was not nice.

The service was excellent as usual.

This was our second visit to this lovely restaurant. The food is excellent and presented beautifully. The staff are friendly, chatty always smiling and knowledgable about the food on offer. Although small inside there is a lovely atmosphere. We will certainly be returning and have recommended to friends and family.

Our meal was fabulous although my husband’s dessert was bland & he was disappointed. However, the restaurant didn’t charge for it & it was most appreciated. It was a treat from our friends for my jusband’s birthday & we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It’s amazing due to the size of the place how they cope with the food that comes from a small area. The wine was also very well recommended.

This is my fourth visit to the Chef’s Table and it never disappoints! A small but perfectly formed menu just delights the tastebuds. Surf and turf for a starter is new on me but wonderful! Staff are attentive but not annoying - if I had a complaint (and I really don’t) it would be that the wine list could be better. But if you haven’t visited Chef’s Table then please do - it’s a hidden gem.

On the whole not bad. Nice goose starter, duck main very well cooked, desert very pleasant, veal pie a little dry. Very good waitresses.
I seem to remember we booked as a result of a newspaper review claiming on I% the 25best restaurants outside London, they need a better food reviewer.
