I heard this restaurant was incredible and was so excited to finally get a chance try it out with my family! And yes, it lives up to it's reputation. Everything we ordered was wonderful! The Caesar salad is one of my favorite Caesars I've tried. I ordered the macadamia encrusted tilapia, it was so good but I was already full... More

The Chef's Table is a lovely restaurant with excellent food. Make reservation on weekends. Great wine selection and cocktails. Service was excellent and Chef/Owner is sure doing something right as we booked the next night for dinner there too. You know it is good when you go back the next night! Homemade pasta - beef lasagna - wow !! 2... More

What a treat to dine at Chef's Table recently. If the chef did not grow the menu's ingredients, then he reached out to local purveyors for their bounty. I appreciate a chef who reaches out to his local farmers. I would have given them 5 stars, but I had just finished my appetizer when my entree came out. That's a... More

It was a solid meal, but I reserve a five star for something very unique and toe-tapping, and this was not quite there this time. My wife and I enjoyed the risotto balls and green-fried tomatoes -- not the way you should eat every day, but delicious none-the-less. I had the pecan trout and my wife enjoyed the vegetarian eggplant... More

Fabulous! If you don't have a reservation go early, even on weeknights. We recommend the brie salad & a made to order pasta dish.

This hidden treasure is fabulous. The service is exceptional and Josh's creative genius behind the meals is impressive. Josh, the owner, uses the freshest ingredients from his farm to make each dish special. Before you go though, make reservations, they are always packed.

My wife and I were in waynesville for a golf trip and we met a local couple at Frogs Level Brewery (also recommended). We asked them where we could go for salad and appetizers and they both recommended Chef's Table. Nuff said! It is a quaint small eatery with an extensive wine list and a great menu. We chose the...

Recommended by Oak Hill B&B. Excellent food. Good service. Eggplant Parm was best I ever had. My husband loved his grouper and definitely would return.
