“Try the omelette - amazing”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We ate here on the off chance on Friday on our way to a talk. Thus we benefitted from the £15 steak/lobster we had both between us, delightful but the stand out dish was the omelette arnold bennett what a light and delightful concoction, really memorable. The only downside was the lettuce with honey and mustard sauce and bacon bits that would have been more at home in Pizza Hut the rest was worth a repeat visit which no doubt we will make sometime soon. ALso of note the non alcoholic drinks - how refreshing to see some style here.

“great food, very popular book well in advance”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

finally got around to visiting Upstairs at the grill for the second time after having wanted to visit again for quite some time. trying to get a table for 8pm on a friday or saturday means selling your soul, or booking two years in advance it seems, but this shows how popular this place is.
Food was fantastic, steak cooked to perfection and service was brilliant too. i will say be prepared to pay though, when you order your steak that is all youre getting, items such as sauces, chips, veg etc are all chargeable sides so as long as you realise this then you wont choke when you get your bill at the end of the night.

I can honestly say that this is the nicest place I have ever had a meal.
I treated my parents to a meal out, we all had three courses, everything was cooked to perfection, the steaks are amazing, atmosphere was brilliant, service was fantastic - I could not rate this place any higher.. if I could give it 6 stars I would.

“Great way to celebrate our anniversary”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

We decided to visit Chester at the last minute to celebrate our second wedding anniversary, and used trip advisor to get some ideas on somewhere to go for a nice meal. Upstairs at the Grill had such great reviews we decided we would go there and we were not disappointed. The food and atmosphere were great. I think the menu on the whole is reasonably priced considering the quality of the food we received and the level of service.

The staff were extremely attentive both helping us decide what to go for and checking we were happy with everything throughout our meal. My husband had also mentioned it was to celebrate our anniversary and when we arrived at our table there was a card waiting for us, which I thought was a very nice touch. We would definitely recommend this place to our family and friends if they were visiting Chester.
