We were booked in for our meal at 1.30. We left at 4.40. The food was beautiful. But the time it took for us to get our food was far too long. The restaurant wasn't very busy so really there was no excuse! Just glad we weren't in a rush. As the food was so good I would go go... More

Only the second place I keep going back to that I've never had a bad meal in. Parking is not great, but still worth the effort of going.

Food was delicous - great selection, tasty food well presented - attentive staff who knew the balance between being helpful but also allowing us to enjoy our meals without being watched over. First visit but definitely wont be our last.

We booked a table for a Saturday night, arrived to find it quite busy but seemed good atmosphere. Unfortunately they must have overbooked and struggled to keep up with the deman, we experienced long wait times, service was rushed and found the Customer service skills of the manager lacking. Food was ok, prices ok, but generally not a nice experience... More

Very competent all round performance. Menu offers a decent choice but is not idiotically long. Wine fairly priced and perfectly drinkable. Great service and lovely views. Can tend to be a bit bright in some sunsets but a small price to pay.

Had a 3 course meal here and the food was gorgeous. The portion sizes look quite small however, they are very filling! Lovely view out the window where we were sitting watching the sun set. The service was a little slow at times. Would like to try here for their lunch time menu.

Our family of 4 adults went for dinner at THe Red House last night. Service prompt and attentive, food delicious. Have been there 5 times this year and each time have had an excellent meal. Don't know why people are posting negative reviews, we can't wait to go back.

This was one of the finest restaurants in chester. It had a great menu, and great views and on a nice day eating / drinking outside you could experience a great view of the river and city. Now its probably the worst italian (i think that what its supposed to be) restaurant in the North West. Our children had pizza,... More

I visited this restaurant with family on bank holiday Monday. Apparently you can't book a table outside on the terrace you just have to turn up and pounce as someone gets up. You can only eat meals on the top and middle terrace and not on the lower terraces although there is nothing that says this anywhere in the vicinity.... More
