Have been to this restaurant a few times and they are always very busy so the wait staff is so busy that they forget to be friendly. It also limits their rounds to the tables. The prices are a bit expensive and I think overpriced. They sit large parties and sometimes the food takes forever to be brought to the... More

This was a 50/50 split for us. There were 4 people in our party and half were satisfied with their food and half were disappointed. I got a pasta dish called Jombolti which was great maybe a little pricy at $15.75. The person who had the personal pizza was also satisfied. One person got Chicken parmigiana and was unimpressed and... More

The service was horrendously slow there was 4 people there and my sub took almost 35 mins (chicken parmesan sub) which was more like chicken fingers on hard bread and spaghetti os sauce with nasty tasting cheese on top

Terrible. I had the soft shell crab special. It was horrible. I'll describe it: A soggy mess of nasty tasting goo which smelled horrible and had so much lemon in the sauce it was like lemonaide. The Caesar salad was horrible. LOTS of cheese... that was not really good parmesan, and it was all clumped up on the bottom of... More

During another quick stay in Chester we selected Cesare's for dinner over our norm. We found them by doing a "near by" search from the Hyatt Place web page since thats where we were staying again. The online menu had something for everyone but I couldn't decide and it was getting late as I was hungry and needed something. I... More

Nice place, large servings and good service. Clean and well run. Didn't have to wait for a table even though we were there on a Friday evening during the busy time.

Our family (10) went there for Father's Day, 2014 - what a disaster - see my Review 2014. We returned Mother's Day, 2015 - just passed - same poor treatment and took 1 hour to get our meals- then in piece-mill. Complained, but they said nothing, and place wasn't bust. Like the food and décor, but dislike the arrogance of... More

We just relocated to Chester and tried Cesare's on a friend's recommendation. We had the Eggplant Parmesan, Chicken Parmesan, and Fettuccine Alfredo. All three were quite good. The portions were very large--my wife and daughter will split an order on return. Salads included actual greens and not simply a bowl of iceberg lettuce. The bread was fresh out of the... More

Stoped in for a meal close to the hotel that we were staying at for the evening. The staff was very attentive and there was no wait for a table. The food was good but standard Italian fare. I chose the lasagna , it was over sauced and thin but was plenty to eat. My husband had the sausage &... More
