“AMAZING!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

I went here for the first time recently with my partner for his 21st Birthday meal, and I have to say it is one of the nicest restaurants we've ever been too! After hearing it was a special occasion, our very kind waiter brought us 2 glasses of complimentary champagne, which I thought was such a lovlely touch. The evening only got better, we skipped starters, eager to try the steaks. I had Rump and my other half had Sirloin. I have to say, it was the best steak i've ever eaten, it was beautifully cooked (med/well) and accompanied by the tastiest onion rings and american fries, a beautiful meal! Even though we were pretty full from our delicious main, we HAD to try a dessert. I opted for the Chocolate and Honeycomb Pot, which was reccomended by our waiter, and I know why! It was absolutely delicious! My partner had Creme Brulee and thouroughly enjoyed it. If your looking for a nice restaurant for a special occasion or even for an ordinary evening you must try this little gem, amazing atmosphere and the most beautiful food!

“Best Steak House, excellent customer service. A************”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Having been to Gouchos and Hawksmoor in London my expectations of Steak Houses is pretty high, I can honestly say hand on heart Upstairs at the Grill knocked the spots off both!!
Amazing value for money, food was very quick and was both presented in a brilliant style as well as being mouth watering! For me customer service is a huge part of any dining experience and the staff on Saturday night were fantastic.

I cannot fault the place and will certainly visit again next time I am in Chester, do not miss out on this place.

Thank you everyone you made a great day finish in style.
