Critics Review
Review by Manchester Confidential's Mark Garner
19.5/20
The food here is classic French with tickles, the tickles are only there to put a couple of fingers up to the new wave chemists. You would be happy taking dinner on a tray right there. The people serving you are outstanding. The wine list sets your hair on end. I mean, a 1964 Dom Perignon? This is Ian Fleming territory. Michael Broadbent scored the year with five stars. There are over 1000 ‘bins’. Arguably this is the best for miles and miles, representing a staggering £3m investment. Simon Radley has been chef for over eleven years with a couple of short breaks in between. He and Mark Bevan, the manager, run the place with passion, verve and a clarity of purpose that had Gordo in mind of some of the best chateaux in France in their heyday of the eighties.

Little or no atmosphere a little too quiet almost silent. Food and service cannot be faltered

Taster menu was excellent...we tried foods and combinations we have never had before. One or two were a bit much but overall fabulous. Service was impeccable. Very calm atmosphere to eat in and enjoy. Overall a very positive experience

Fantastic meal! Received a voucher for the 8 course tasting menu for xmas and used it for a visit in August for my sisters birthday. The food and drink was amazing along with a lovely atmosphere and friendly personal yet very professional service! Can not fault our evening! One of our dining highlights! Thank you.

We had the taster menu and it was fantastic. The ONLY thing that I did not like was a small piece of tripe on the main course veal dish. I ate it accidentally because I thought it was fish - lol! Second time we have tried Simon's taster menu and once again we just cannot fault it at all. Steven

It was a very special evening. We found the food and service exemplary. It was our first visit but we hope to return to the Chester Grosvenor very soon. Our son and daughter in law had treated us for our 40th Wedding Anniversary and they couldn't have made a better choice. Thank you so much.

Thank you once again to all the team at The Simon Radley restaurant . We had a wonderful evening as always . That is why we come back , it is one of our favourite hotels. The Tasting Menu was superb every dish is not only delicious bursting with new flavours or with combinations of ingredients that one would never have thought to combine, plus the presentation is a feast for the eyes . This combined with the ambience and the five star service is a real treat and I urge people to go as the young gentleman said ; Is this a special occasion , our answer was no so his perfect reply was ; " Just celebrating life ! " Jaime you obviously run a training programme for the staff and it is evident that everyone has been trained to a high standard from the lovely young lady who brought the plates to the servers . Special thanks to you, Derek and the young man who was in charge of the bread and who described to Madam / Sir the dishes. He is a star in the making . Look forward to seeing you all again soon . Carry on doing what you all do as it is such a pleasure being the diners. Kind Regards. The Gilchrists 😋
