We came for Sunday lunch and found it exceptional as always. Food, drink, atmosphere and service are faultless. Joseph Benjamin is still our favourite place in Chester.

This is a favourite restaurant of ours for a special occasion. It's not the cheapest in Chester but offers an innovative menu, even for vegetarians! Food and service are faultless and the contemporary decor makes the most of the limited space available at the venue. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and can't wait to go again!

First time I have visited your restaurant and expect to return. Liked the absence of music in the dining room. Restaurant had no issue with menu for dairy free diner, confirming this by email.

I hardly ever give reviews as it is always a personal opinion and can depend on so many external influences - how busy you are, the menu etc. However I am making an exception on this occasion as I found the entire evening of the highest quality from the moment you took our coats to the wave as we said goodbye - what more can I say.

Absolutely wonderful meal on Sunday. The staff were great - friendly and funny. We all had the beef roast dinner and it was by far the best roast I have had in years and definitely the best in Chester. Really reasonably priced too. Thanks for a great meal. We will be back soon to try the rest of the menu!
