    Excellent. Great food, attentive staff. The only negative was that the music on the terrasse was a little too loud.

    We had a 2 course lunch menu the day we visited and for £20 it was a lovely treat. The menu was a little confusing at first but the food and service very good. Hope to visit again soon.

    Good atmosphere, service good, value for money would be it's downfall. Food was good but overpriced in areas. This was my second visit and the experience overall was much better. I had a seafood platter to start but it would have been nice if the dish was explained to us on arrival. I had no knife for the oysters which were quite disappointing. When asked about the dish I did mention about the oysters and was told the chef would be informed but no feedback was returned. The mains were tasty and the desert fantastic. Wine was very good.
    £152 bill without having steak was not value for money. Staff should know the menu and wine list inside out and be able to guide you accordingly. For the price you should feel like a valued guest and if a slightly negative comment is given when asked about something then this should be acted on accordingly keeping the customer informed of the outcome. ie. We will not charge you for that or would you like something else.
    I would like to refer to the experience recently experienced at Gordon Ramsey steak at the Paris Vegas. This sets the benchmark on service. Any question is answered and you are guided every step of the way ensuring correct choices are made for a great meal. Not like last night where it was there's the menu and wine list. What would you like? The service was attentive but training on knowing the menu and wine and guiding the customer through it is missing. I will probably return for the early bird menu when I can get 3 courses for £25.

    The food was lovely and experience for the 6 diners who were celebrating my wife's birthday was great until we had finished the meal and moved to the bar. Albeit the bar staff were busy, but to wait 30mins to be served was unacceptable particularly after spending a small fortune for the meal! I did point this out to the duty manager at the time and the comment was acknowledged and she was extremely apologetic. On speaking to others people I know they tell me the same story in that they have given up in the past trying to get a drink and moved on elsewhere! To be honest if it wasn't for the ladies in the group wearing high heels we would have moved on too.

    The experience at the bar will make me think twice about dining at Opera in the future. If only you had employed one or two more bar staff...Just a little feedback to help you out.

    Recently opened, Opera has already made itself known as a top class restaurant in Chester. We like the high quality and varied alternatives on the menu. The staff are knowledgeable about the ingredients and well trained. I asked what Onglet was ( coming from the backwoods of Wrexham), and was given a full description and explanation. I tried it and it was excellent. My wife had salmon which was prepared to near perfection. The atmosphere is lively without being overbearing, and the staff are efficient and pleasant.

    Fantastic food quality enjoyed by myself and my wife. The service was very good, and staff ere very attentive. The place was very busy, with the Terrace Rooftop and Music Lounge also full, which says a lot about its popularity. The food, albeit great, is over priced, that would be my only criticism. However I would definitely recommend Opera Grill to everyone to try at least once
