We chose The Chef's Table for dinner because it is so highly rated on Trip Advisor. We made a reservation and we were seated without delay. We found our waitress to be infomed and pleasant. She immediately told us they were out of the pistachio encrusted trout which had been my first choice. I ordered the pan-fried grouper with piccata... More

We chose this restaurant because of the Trip Advisor having it as #1 and this was spot on. Everything is prepared just for you by the chef/owner. I eat gluten free and they had several entrees to chose from and the chef would adjust other dishes to be gluten free if possible. I had a 1/2 Crispy Duck with a... More

After reading other Tripadvisor reviews we were excited to try Chef's Table and took the advice given. We ordered the risotto balls, which did not disappoint. We took one home so we did not spoil our dinner. I enjoyed the trout, encrusted with pistachios. It was served on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes and well spiced okra. It was... More

My wife and I had a wonderful dining experience at the Chef's Table. The staff is experienced, knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. The food is exceptional! We both had the grouper and rated it amongst the best we have ever had. The homemade strawberry ice cream was a solid finisher. Nice, diverse selection of appetizers, entrées and wines.... More

We just enjoyed our first visit to the Chef's Table. This is actually a very unassuming place, with nice decor and ambiance, but certainly not luxurious. We found the serving staff to be extremely kind, attentive, and very knowledgeable about both the menu selections and the truly extensive wine list (nice selection of micro-brewery beers, as well). The food was... More

We made reservations 10 days in advance for Saturday night, knowing that the restaurant always is busy, especially on weekends. When we arrived, they were unable to find our reservation but they believed us and worked in a small table that was fine. We expected to wait because we knew from past experience that there always is a long wait,... More

We came up to Waynesville with friends to celebrate my 40th birthday with friends. The Chef's Table was highly recommended to us by friends and family who live in the area. The Chef's Table did not disappoint! There were 10 of us in our group and no one was disappointed. The food was delicious! I had the Black and Bleu... More

Finding a restaurant of this caliber in a small mountain town was such a pleasant surprise! This is a small unpretentious place that is friendly and welcoming. It isn't unusual to be seated by Josh, the chef/owner. Josh's risotto balls are a real treat, but if you eat all three of them, don't expect to be able to finish your... More
