There were a group of us there last Saturday night, August 23rd and had the most wonderful meal with excellent service. The chef/owner Josh is dynamite in his flavors and presentation and it tastes so good! Certainly the best in western North Carolina and perhaps

We made a rez for a 7 pm dinner on a Monday night, were asked to sit at the bar to wait for our table, seems they couldn't find our reservation. There we sat for 20/25 minutes with no offer of a cocktail, glass of wine, water or a nosh, no nothing. Seated at 7:30, we quickly put our orders... More

We have been in Waynesville for 3 nights and have gone to three of the highest rated restaurants in town. This...by far....the worst overall experience. Had it not been for the delicious entree that finally arrived after a 90 minute wait I would have rated this place "terrible". 7pm reservation that they didn't have a record of. Sat at a... More

Our golf group eats here every time we come to Waynesville. We always sit at the big table in the back. Service has been good and the food is good. The menu has a decent variety and they are trying to be fully farm to table. The grilled salad, the tuna, the lamb and the deconstructed lasagna are excellent. One... More

There were so many mouth watering choices I could have made at the Chef's Table in Waynesville, but settled on Salmon with aspharagus and creamy grits. I was almost hesitant to order because I often find that the sauce restaurants use is too overpowering, but this sauce complimented the salmon. Others in our group of eight had local trout, duck,...

The food at chef's table is excellent. Hard to believe that you would find such a nice menu in this small town. I had the Lamb Shank which fell off the bone and my wife had the crispy duck. Both entre"s were fabulous. We shares a grilled romaine salad which could feed a third world country. Other dishes that our... More

On the recommendation of Greg Carter of Deep Woods Mushrooms we made a reservation at Chef's Table...and so glad we did. Great totally unassuming restaurant, we have walked past it many times on our way to Frog's Leap. Once inside we noticed the extraordinary wine list and the creative and innovative menu items. The service was perfect, our waitress was... More

Overall, a very delicious meal, but mixed experience, for us at Chef's Table. The page of pastas and tasty sauces caught our eyes, but after we ordered, we were told the pasta machine was broken. Okay, stuff happens. Next choice was the trout entree. Again, after ordering, we were told they were out of trout. This was a little more... More

When we moved to the area 10 year ago this was a great restaurant and very upscale for the size of the town. Over the past couple of years we have tried it once each summer and have come away disappointed with either the service, the food, or both. We will not go back…there are other options that are more... More

Had tenderloin cut of steak. Very good, tender, and flavorful. The pasta is supposedly home-made, but it was average.
