All our food & drink was delicious and the staff were helpful and friendly. One small drawback was that it was quite loud, but despite this would definitely recommend to anyone.

We have visited several times and have never been disappointed. Whether out with my husband or group of friends we always have a lovely time. The food is out of this world and the staff and are very friendly and helpful. I was so impressed last night when the staff went out of their way to get me a gluten free lager, for which I was very grateful!!!

I already have recommended you to friends. I Chose your restaurant as we were on a 'first date' and wanted to make it special, coming from Anglesey I had to research, I liked what I saw, the lunchtime menu, though small was difficult to choose from, so it was a gut feeling on the day, we decided on different dishes so we could taste each others. Neither of us was disappointed. The choice of wine had been left to me, having studied the wine list online, the Malbec was a simple and excellent choice, I suspect I will be back to sample others. Service was excellent, all team members who dealt with us made excellent eye contact and extremely attentive, thank you. I have recently taken over a premises on Anglesey, which I am hoping to be a destination location for foodies, If I can match one half of what I experienced at Joseph Benjamins. I will be a happy man. This is the easiest review I have ever written. Thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable experience and making the date special. Yes, I got a second :) Mal x

Wasn't told the kitchen takes last orders for lunch at 2.30pm on the website when we booked a table. Had we known, we would have booked in for earlier as it all felt rushed once we arrived. The restaurant was also stuffy and cramped. Way too many tables in there. Requested a cosy table for two in the corner when I booked online - what we got was a table squeezed in between two other tables which was extremely uncomfortable. Food was excellent and very tasty but heavily overpriced for what you get on the plate.

Great Food, Great Service - Full Stop. This is a hidden gem in Chester - enjoy it now before it gets too popular and you won't be able to book a seat for 3 months - yes, it's that good
