I took the family to dinner here. Everyone loved it; from the atmosphere, to the wine, to the food, to the service. Each meal was prepared and presented perfectly. I just wish I lived closer so I could visit more often.

The owner & chef, Josh, has a very unique menu with many appealing choices for any palette and are they delicious. We had a grilled romaine salad to die for. Service was excellent and the food was a 10, how could you beat that. We will be back next year.

We ordered ahead and picked up our dinner and took it back to Twin Maples Farmhouse, where we were staying. We ordered 3 meals, Trout, Chicken and a Pasta. We split the food up on 4 plates and had plenty. The food was delicious!

This restaurant was a great experience from making the reservation to paying the check. In my opinion, a great restaurant emphasizes quality in everything (service, bread, appetizers, salads, entrees, and desserts). This restaurant offers that quality and I'm just sorry I couldn't sample everything I mentioned above. Starting with service, Andy was our waiter and he's one of the best... More

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
