So great for a special occasion

This is only the second time we have been here as it is a little pricey, but so so worth it for a special occasion. The upstairs cocktail bar is lovely and really good for a pre-dinner drink. We had the Stilton soufflé to start, absolutely gorgeous, served with a crispy little crust round it. We... read more

Had a fabulous meal here with 5 other girlfriends. The service was great and the food delicious, especially enjoyed being shown the different cuts of meat and where they were from being explained. It is expensive but worth it.

I have written a glowing review for this restaurant previously but I must write again that this is consistently the best Sunday Roast dinner that you will ever eat! From the minute you arrive at Upstairs at the Grill you are looked after very extremely attentive staff. They are knowledgable and nothing is too much trouble. My husband is a... More

Absolutely beautiful meal, get to choose your steak that suits your taste, cooked to how you like it, staff were excellent, very helpful and polite, they actually have a conversation with you and you really feel they are genuinely interested in your stay in Chester, already planning our next visit

Ventured here after not being able to book our first choice in Chester for my birthday - so glad we couldn't get into the other place. We were taken upstairs to the bar first, treated to a glass of complementary champagne for my partner and me. Lovely summer cocktail menu, with a bible of all the other cocktails they could... More

We were seated on arrival upstairs very promptly. Asked if we would like drinks and then given time to look at the menu. I had the fillet steak and husband had the t-bone. Both we agreed were beautifully cooked the setting was fab. The only criticism I would give was that you are seated in very close proximity to other... More

Third time, and will return! Food; not happy about the change menu within seasons, just love that onion soup, but all still perfect! It's more than tasty. Each time I have tried something new and always pleased my tastebuds! Menu, the reading material is fantastic, information on the meat to the drinks, the design of the menu makes me love... More
