We have been a number of times and having read recent reviews had been a little concerned that the standard of food and service would have dropped. I can assure you that on this visit, it was as good as ever. We arrived early for a drink and shown to seats in the bar area and then shown to our table at exactly the time it had been booked for. The service was very good and food quality excellent. The restaurant was busy and you did wait a little longer than normal between courses but this did not in any way detract and to ne honest a little pause between courses was a good thing. It was clear that the staff knew in detail about the menu choices and good give suggestions. The phrase 'compliments to the chef' sums up excellent food quality, along with a good front of house team.

This is the second time I have eaten at this restaurant and both times I have had the most delicious meal in a wonderful atmosphere. The staff were polite and attentive, without hovering uneccesarily. The restaurant decor is crisp and clean, not overly fussy but the main attraction was the food. Even in a party of ten the first time we ate here there was not one complaint about any course from starter to dessert and cheese course....and the wine selection was wonderful, with a knowledgable member of staff talking the boys through the reds. I had the fillet steak which was delicious...my only piece of advice would be if you aren't brave when it comes to steak ask for it to be slightly overdone, as everyone got their steak on the rarer side of cooked (my medium rare was bordering rare). I know this is better than having an overcooked steak but some of the girls would have preferred another minute cooking perhaps. The cut of meat was delicious though, couldn't fault anything, and I would highly recommend the goats cheese and beetroot salad too. Beautiful presentation with all the food and the taste to back it up.

All in all, amazing atmosphere, wonderful wines and fabulous food!

We waited ages to place our drinks order and then had to ask why it was taking so long for them to be brought to us.
The starter of Ham and Melon consisted of four tiny pieces of watermelon, the ham was ok, nothing special!
The steak was tasteless and tough. they could invest in some proper steak knives.
Only two choices for dessert, I had some kind of Eton Mess it had no flavour whatsoever.
There were a lot of staff standing around, shame they weren't serving people, it was busy, the lady on the next table had to go and get her own jug of water as she had waited so long.
We had looked forward to going to this restaurant we felt that the food was overpriced and very poor quality, I would not recommend it.

We went to MPWs as I had been given vouchers as a present. The restaurant is lovely and the staff friendly and helpful. The food is where this place is let down. Our starters, potted duck and calamari, were ok but nothing special. The mains of belly pork and sea bass were very average considering the prices. We won't return as there are many better and more reasonably priced restaurants in the area.

Thank you for your feedback.

At Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill Chester we work very hard to create an experience that our guests love.
We use a wide range of locally sourced products, including our butcher who provides some of the best meat within the North West. The price of the menu truly does reflect the quality of the food offered upon our menu.

Please note that we have got some fantastic offers available each month, so I would advise to call us directly to see what we can do for you or why not like us on Facebook and start to follow us on Twitter to receive our latest offers and promotions.

Earliest table available 21:30 so we were hungry and looking forward to a good meal. The room is pleasant and the tables well spaced. The service was good but not exceptional.
Ordered some bread and pork scratching, which were good.
Our first course, seafood sharing platter(c£20) sounded great,but what we got was not. some whitebait which were ok, but nothing special, a small heap of smoked salmon again ok but not top quality. Two bland 'crab' cakes which not even taste of crab and worst of all cheap, I believe frozen, prawns in a thin marie rose dressing.
We both ordered Sirloin steak (c£28) which were served with a choice of sauce (a horrific extra £3) chips, onion rings and a Tomato.
The steak should have been one bite delicious, it was not. OK would be the only way to describe the fairly bland and slighty chewy steaks.
My guest had a dessert, strawberries and ice cream, good but could hardly be ruined.
The bottle of Wine we had was very good and at £25 the only bit of value we had.
We were both hungry so ate most of the food, explained to waiter our dissapointment. He did off another Steak, but it was nearly 11pm by then and I was not confident of anything better anyway.
the cost over £130 for two. would never it at a MPW steak house again there are far better places serving better food for a lot less. (week later had a steak, covered in whole fresh prawns and garlic sauce with chips in a Pub in Bosham for £16 which was 100 times better !!!)
