Chef's Table is intimate without being stuffy, classy without sacrificing comfort, and the food is fantastic! What more can you ask for?

Was one of the best meals we've ever had. The sea bass special was out of this world!! Also the lobster pasta and goat cheese risotto appetizer were outstanding. Atmosphere was a little loud because it was full. Highly recommend reservations. It reminds me of a wonderful quaint European restaurant. Staff was excellent.

Last night we enjoyed another excellent meal and service at Chef's Table. When making our reservation, which is a necessity in season and on weekends, we inquired if veal chop was on the current menu. It wasn't, but we were thrilled that it was a special the night we dined there... and it was magnificent. Loved the fried green tomatoes,... More

My husband and I had dinner at Chef's Table and loved the food. We both tasted everything and every bite delicious. I had the Grouper Picatta and he had the Deconstructed Lasagna (yes, that's the name). :) Both meals were wonderful. The lasagna actually comes with two small pieces of steak and super delicious. We would have visited the next... More

Six of us went there for a birthday dinner. We only saw the waiter 3 times. We also had to flag him down to get another bottle of wine. I had the orange duck, but the chef on duty forgot the orange in the sauce. They also do not know what black & blue steak is. The bread served with... More

While in Waynesville for a business trip, we stopped at this downtown eatery for a delightful well prepared dinner. The food was very fresh with excellent preparation. Try the red snapper or grouper if you are into seafood. We will be back!

We ate here in the Spring and although the tuna wanton appetizer was outstanding , nothing much else was. The service was particularly lacking at that time and I couldn't even get a glass of ice tea. However this time the service and food were remarkable. I was feeling under the weather but the grilled romaine salad with just the... More

Third year in a row we've eaten at Chefs Table... Eight hearty appetites and each one raved about the food and the great service. Will definitely return.
