So glad that we went here for our anniversary. Small restaurant so you probably need a reservation, place was full on a Tuesday night in September. Unusual and interesting dishes. We had Fried risotto balls with goat cheese app, fried romaine salad ( sounds weird, but so good!), a delicious eggplant dish, and a mouth watering trout dish. All unique.... More

If you can get there when the grouper or lamb shanks are on the menu, you are in for a wonderful experience . Wine selections are good also.

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

We come here every year and every year it is absolutely amazing. The food is sensational and the staff is excellent. The establishment is not over big. This way you can receive the personal attention. The wine selection is excellent. I must if you're visiting Waynesville .

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
