Ambience, food and service was very good. Fileto steak was one of the best steak's I have had. However, the size was ridiculously small. I think the size should be highlighted in the menu. Thanks Kofi

No baklava available on a Friday night?! Spoiled our evening really as this was the main reason we chose the restaurant and had cancelled another restaurant to come here due to the availability of this dessert. Service (by Alice) was very good. She was lovely. The rest of the food we had was lovely. Just disappointed about the dessert. If we come here again (not sure about that right now) I’ll be ringing ahead to see if the baklava is available.

We visited the restaurant in a group , I had to pre order all the meals. So for them to then take an hour for our starters to come out and another 45min once we finished starters for mains was unacceptable! Ordering drinks was no quicker. Food was very nice thank god as it was my daughters hen celabration. The staff seemed very young and inexperienced. I would not recommend or come back as there are many more nice restaurants in Chester that offer excellent t service.

Excellent service and lovely food - great selection on the menu There was a little bit to much seasoning on my chips but that was just personal taste. Excellent service One thing I think could be better is a better selection of gin and tonic - only offered one tonic but that won’t put me off returning

I went today with one lactose free person and one vegan fodmap person. I’ve never been anywhere where they were as accommodating. All the staff were attentive and friendly. Dietary requirements can be difficult. But they were really good. I love the Olive Tree, and now my two guests do too. Thank you very much. A++++

Service was very good, really attentive staff who were very respectful - well done guys. Food was very good but there was a mistake with the starters, however we were given the incorrect food as complimentary and then the correct order followed, which was very fair. The cocktails may need to be presented a little better to keep up with other restaurants and bars. Overall a lovely experience with special friends, would definitely return.
