“steak at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

This was the third time we have eaten at the grill and pleased to say the steak was as good as we expected. It was my partners birthday and after a quick phone call balloons were on our table and it made the meal a bit more special .This is quite a pricey restaurant but you get what you pay for. If you like a steak this is the place to go.

“An oasis of good service and wonderful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

My girlfriends and I went to Upstairs at The Grill last Saturday and it was a wonderful experience from the moment we walked in until we left. We received a warm welcome and were taken upstairs to the lovely cosy bar. We were served water and given drinks menus which had a fantastic and unique selection of cocktails. I particularly enjoyed my treacle and pineapple Mai Tai. We were shown the steaks on offer with a very informative description of all the cuts. We ordered our steaks and wine and relaxed and enjoyed our drinks until we were shown to our table with our wine decanted and waiting. When our steaks arrived we were asked to check they were cooked exactly to our liking which was one of the many considerate touches. The food was absolutely delicious as was the wine. We had a lovely evening feeling very well looked after and I would recommend Upstairs at The Grill to anyone who values service and a good steak. There were other options but we were a group of steak lovers!! We will be going back.

“Highly recommended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

Went last night 28th June for our wedding anniversary. It was Races night so was really busy in Chester but the restaurant was overbooked and we weren't rushed which was a pleasant surprise.

Arrived and we were given the option of sitting upstairs in the bar for a drink before our meal which we did. The bar is beautifully decorated and has a lot if nice touches.

We were then taken downstairs for our meal. An anniversary card was on our table for us, another nice touch.

We both had beef carpaccio with Parmesan to start, a Tbone and rump on the bone and cheese to finish. All beautiful!

Only bugbear of the evening was that I had to ask for another drink at the table but can appreciate they were fairly busy.

Would definitely return but you need to book quite far in advance!
