Wilks is the perfect place for any very special occasion. We were treated with exceptional service by staff who were ever attentive and yet formal. The food was superb. Each course was a joy to eat with amuse bouche served between each one. Expert advice was given when ever needed on food and wine. Every thing you would expect from... More

What a lovely, interesting and innovative restaurant! I loved it. They've got it off to a tee. The quality of the food is superb, and the cooking inventive. Top quality and yet relaxed not formal. And the service is warm, attentive and engaging. The meats were quite superb; venison pink and succulent and the sirloin spot on. The wines are... More

We had a nice birthday dinner and cannot recall whether we had all seven courses that included five glasses of wine. We drank and eat too much although this morning I can safely say that it was a success. After the third or fourth glass of wine I could not remember how many courses we had actually eaten but it...

I took my wife for a surprise mid-week trip to Wilks on Chandos Road. It's had a rave run but it was the first time we'd been albeit I had been to the predecessor restaurant on the same site. It was splendid. Creative, subtle with polished service and delightful flavours and textures in an intimate and welcoming atmosphere. One of... More

Visited for the first time back in December for Sunday lunch and as we enjoyed it so much we decided to come back again for a birthday celebration. Originally booked for Friday night as Saturday was already full but had to call to cancel. In enquiring about being on a wait list for Saturday they were super accommodating and changed... More

I went to Wilks to spend a voucher given to a friend for the five course meal. The food was exceptionally good but we thought the portion size of the starter and main were far too small even by the standards of a restaurant of this nature. However, the food was very enjoyable but I expected more given the price... More

We had the 5 course tasting menu with the wine pairing. Every course was delightful, tasty and quite exceptional. Even the bread was delicious! We appreciated the information about each course and wine. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. Good value for money. Overall it was one of our best dining experiences - which is why we are contributing... More

There isn't much else to say that hasn't already been said about Wilks, it's not often that I agree totally with reviews about places on Trip Advisor, but it seems everyone is in agreement about Wilks. The food is amazing, there really aren't enough adjectives to describe the food we have been lucky enough to eat on the two occasions... More
