Small restaurant on a side street in downtown Waynesville, North Carolina. The owner is the chef. Our favorite restaurant when vacationing in Waynesville. Outstanding dishes and service. My husband had the grouper and I had eggplant with pasta. A must if you are ever in Waynesville.

This is a small , quaint restaurant that was recommended to us by a frequent traveler to the area. Our waiter advised us that much of the food prepared in the restaurant is grown on the chef's nearby farm. The menu was fairly extensive and the food was exceptionally good. I ordered the hazelnut trout and my GF ordered crab... More

Every dish we tried was wonderful ... fried brie salad, fried green tomatoes, black and blue steak pasta and grouper piccata ... we told Chef Josh that we were going to move to Waynesville so that we could eat there...

We were at this delightful restaurant to celebrate a birthday. When I called and made the reservation I requested a chocolate something or other for dessert. Surely it's okay to talk about dessert first in a review. Suffice it to say the chocolate dessert was over the top. Our dinner was excellent; the waiter was helpful and engaging; the small... More

My husband and I recently made an unplanned trip to Waynesville, after being rerouted because of Hurricane Matthew. This restaurant is a gem in this gem of a small town. We had the deconstructed lasagna and hazelnut crusted trout, both were generous portions and delicious. We had a pleasant, attentive waiter.

My husband and I celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary at Chef's Table without a lot of pre-planning. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We started with a glass of champagne, which could be ordered by the glass which is rare, and we pared the bubbly with the cheese plate appetizer. Homemade bread, Apple slices, creamy Brie spread,...

Wonderful food, fabulous service, terrific atmosphere! This place is such a little treasure, with the kitchen right in the middle of the room and lots of wine and laughter. We really loved this restaurant!

We ate dinner here with family while we were visiting Waynesville and it was delicious. The food melts in your mouth. I had the deconstructed lasagna and my mouth waters just thinking about it. Everyone of the family enjoyed their meals. I highly recommend eating at Chef's Table if you are visiting Waynesville.
