Pre-theatre dinner. Timing was just right. The staff were welcoming and suggestions regarding food and wine choice were spot on. Lovely people. Thank you.

This was a first visit and a really lovely discovery. The welcome and smells when we walked in for lunch were fantastic and an indicator of the experience to come. We were served delicious, imaginative food by people who clearly cared that we enjoyed everything we ate. Great place.

The menu was very limited and expensive for lunchtime. We opted for the special . Chicken leg on mustard mash with gravy, and a glsss of wine. Very uninspiring...overall really disappointed:(

Lamb sweetbread dish to start was excellent, sea bream dish and belly pork mains were both fab, neither of us fancied anything off the dessert menu which was disappointing, perhaps some more indulgent choices required on the menu, we will see you in the new year.

I really enjoyed eating at your restaurant. The sea bass was delicious , beautifully cooked and meaty - not like the thin fillets I have had elsewhere. The ice cream dessert with coffee and sherry was a real treat, and the sherry tasted divine! The staff were polite, pleasant and very helpful. I had a great lunch with my friend and will return next time I am in Chester.

This was our first visit to Joseph Benjamin and we will have no hesitation in returning to dine whenever we visit the city. Service was prompt, efficient and courteous within a convivial atmosphere free from noisy fellow diners or distractions. Menu options were pleasingly limited in number, suggesting a concern with the provision of fresh food produce rather than pages of options simply decanted from the freezer. If we had one concern or criticism however, this would be that for our tastes, the dishes - and my main in particular with its accompaniment of Puy lentils - were rather over seasoned with salt.
