The food here is beautifully cooked and well presented. Service is second to none. One of the owners (front of house) has his eye on what's going on all the time. Attention to detail is uppermost. This is not a cheap restaurant, but you are not rushed out and the food warrants the extra expense. A firm favourite with local people.

This was our second visit to this exceptional restaurant and, if anything, was even better than last time! The food, wine and service were all fantastic. This is a very special place and we are very lucky indeed to have Joseph Benjamin in Chester.

Came here for lunch on Easter Saturday, having read Tripadviser reviews. We managed to spontaneously get a table but it became really busy. Good relaxed atmosphere and service was friendly and polite. Food was really good quality and well presented. I liked the fact that they sold deli produce and kitchenware too. My partner had a burger which he said was great and I had the delicious trout salad. A slightly limited menu but everything that came out of the kitchen looked good! We were very pleased with our choice of restaurant!

Everything is so right here. The service is friendly, polite and efficient - without being over done. The food is invariably excellent and whilst it isn't cheap it is certainly not expensive considering what you get for your money. The dining room is small, but well laid out and there's plenty of room. There's nowhere else in Chester that I'd rather have lunch. Highly recommended.

Not many dishes to choose from. I had a mixed starter, with small but delicious tastes of cheese, pate (wish I had had this as a starter) & cooked meats. Some elements rather odd eg grated spiced lancashire cheese & cinnamony chutney. Main course burger was ok & seemed popular, but not something I would usually have chosen. Ace chips. very sweet ketchup. Partner had a lamb cottage pie with crispy tongue on top. Side dish of veg perfectly cooked
Charming service
