I think I may be harsh giving 3 stars as the restaurant was clean and the service was excellent. However the food (standard for pizza express) was just ok. If you are a regular at pizza express and enjoy the food then this restaurant is great. Unfortunately the food for me let it down. If you've got pizza in your... More

Sat near the kitchen, wish I hadn't. Saw a chef drop a pizza tray then use it again and probably the same one drop a receipt on a pizza. The server then took the receipt off it then served it. Foods over expensive and average. Garlic bread is shocking for the price. Definitely Sergios over this place. Will not be... More

Sunday lunchtime and the staff seemed confused as to how to deal with a busy restaurant. My food arrived ten minutes after my wife's meal and her meal was undercooked pasta so was eventually removed from the bill. Not a great experience and I won't be going back any time soon. Shocker

Arrived to be asked what we wanted to drink by 2 different members of staff. Starters resembled something I could have produced with ingredients from farmfoods. The pasta was ok (not hard is it!) The Calzone wasn't cooked in the middle. Incredibly poor service, hospital standard food, sky high bill! No more words required.

Pizzas were really nice and the service was great, however bill came to £33 for two cokes, a pizza and a calzone...very pricey for what it was so I wouldn't rush back. Place was lovely inside too.

One of the benifts of Merseyrail is their all area ticket, having walked the full Wirral Way we jumped on the train at Hooton for Chester. From the station we phoned up and were booked in. From the initial call to the duration of the meal all the staff were excellent, well turned out and polite. Drinks and food arrived... More

We ate at this restaurant when having a two day break in Chester around New Year. The food was up to the usual Pizza Express standard which to me is very good-what made the evening excellent was Lee our waiter who was excellent. He was more than attentive he was personable without being imposing. After he spent some time talking... More

We visited Pizza Express as part of our weekend Christmas shopping trip to Chester. We went on a quiet Sunday evening, but it took quite a while to be asked for our order. It was quite a young staffing team, and they did admit to be experiencing problems with their system, but it did appear other customers were having to... More

Ĺlike the previous couple we didn't take in to account how full chester would be, don't know why on reflection. We went looking at 9am. Had a table by the window. Nice mushroom starter followed by a spicy pizza lovely. Unfortunately they had run out of profiteroles with caramel but offered hubby hot choc and profiteroles which he loved. Staff... More
