Fantastic restaurant, fantastic service, fantastic meal, four of us dined at the restaurant and we would all very highly recommend it, we had starters which were delicious and the steaks were absolutely amazing, 3 of us went for the chateaubriand steaks the other went for the 24oz ribeye and we all said we haven't ever had steaks that tasted so good, the meal was fantastic, we only wish we had a restaurant this good in our local area in southampton it was worth the visit to Chester to dine here.

Booked this restaurant purely on trip advisor reviews and was not disappointed. Staff very pleasant and very relaxed atmosphere throughout. Worth having a pre- dinner drink in the bar upstairs. Food was superb - beautifully cooked steak and a large glass of red... Bliss! Would definitely recommend booking if visiting chester.

“Excellent restaurant serving the perfect steak”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Went with my girlfriend on a busy Saturday night as was really lucky to fill a cancelled booking. We were seated at the bar in the raised section which was a quirky but great experience. The steak was done to perfection and knowledgable staff engaged us at right times to ensure we enjoyed our visit.
Many thanks to the bar staff, in fact many thanks to all of the staff who made our visit a great visit.

“Lovely food, amazing service but something missing...”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

This place is great, the steaks are wonderful, the staff are polite and friendly and the restaurant is beautiful. But there is something missing. Something about the staffs regurgitated speel seems ridiculously rehearsed and ungenuine. Throw in the price and you start to wonder why you didn't wait for Bar Lounges £10 steak deal, which is in fact far superior and in a much friendlier and laid back setting. Whilst this place was great it did not live up to the high expectations it sets for itself. Save yourself 70 quid and pop over the road instead.
