This is a small restaurant and feels quite exclusive, the staff know everything about the whole menu and sit down with you and discuss all your choices. The drinks menu is vast.... but we had someone help us choose wine and vodka and he knew everything on the menu, a refreshing change from staff that often haven't a clue in... More

Had a more than pleasant evening meal at 'The Grille' on a recent visit, though not without a problem. It is not difficult to see why this restaurant is highly regarded in Chester. The whole dining experience is well orchestrated, especially the presentation of the choice and cuts of steaks available, which is useful no matter how much you think... More

We had Lobster before 6:30pm for £15 per head. The lobster was very tasteful with all the trimmings. Wonderful deserts on offer. The staff were very attentive to our needs and friendly. The Grill had a great atmosphere for our special meal. It has won best restaurant in Chester for the past 3 years. Fully recommended for that special occasion.

Well worth a trip highest quality meat and fantastic service a must if you are visiting Chester. If you are very hungry go for the T-Bone if not try the surf & Turf and some local brews.

This restaurant really is something else. I think this was my fourth visit and each time I leave wanting to book again. The steak is the best I've eaten, cooked to perfection, but it's the service you receive that really shines. The staff talk you through the various cuts available and also talk you through the massive drinks menu, this... More

Excellent restaurant. Everything was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. The food and wine were wondeful. This is now one of my favorite restaurants. The staff were fantastic and gave a really personal service without being intrusive. The restaurant isn't cheap but everything is worth it and if everything is right (which it was) you don't mind paying that little... More

First visit to Upstairs at the Grill and we were not disappointed. The staff are very well trained and pleasant. We arrived early and were taken upstairs to the drinks lounge, immediately poured a glass of water while we chose our selected drinks from the drinks menu. The barman was very friendly and attentive. After a short while a waiter... More
