I have reviewed the Chef's Table on several occasions and do so again as it so richly deserves the exceptional comments. This trip, in town for two weeks, we ate here twice. If you haven't been here, it is small, with several tables up front and several in the back. We prefer the back as it tends to be just... More

The hubby and I usually eat in Dalonega, GA and Wolf Mountain Wineries for a brunch on our Anniversary. This year we moved and I wanted another good wine place with a nice choice of food on the menu. The reviews for The Chefs Table in Waynesville, NC were all good except for 2 so I thought this would be... More

Quaint little place that offers a nice cross section of entrees. Very good pasta, polite staff. The price/value relationship was very fair. A plus is their charge for corkage only $10 if you bring your wine. A must try if you are in Waynesville

I would have given the Chefs Table a 5 except for our wait which I'm sure was impacted by it being Valentine's Day... so consider it a 4.5. We had reservations for 9pm and arrived ten min early so asked to sit at the bar where I assumed I could get a glass of wine. But we were ignored for... More

Great food, service and atmosphere. We love this restaurant! When guests and family come to town this is one of the places we take them. Lots of options on the menu from meats, pasta, veggie and fish. Locally grown vegetables, meats and fish. Homemade pastas and desserts. You can not go wrong at the Chef's Table.

Dinner with my Valentine of 50 years Early reservation (6PM) was all we could get 3+ weeks ahead - probably indicates the popularity of this restaurant locally. We were seated promptly, and surprisingly, had a 4-top. Our waiter was friendly, prompt, knowledgeable and helpful. The wine list was superb and extensive, with a good variety of selections at various prices.... More

Great food and service. Only complaint is the noise level is way too loud. They cram too many tables too close together.

Some of the dishes--ceasar, lamb shank--were excellent, others just okay (fish cakes). the main problem with the visit was that, in this very small restaurant, the chef talked loudly and long and made it difficult for us to converse. It cost too much not to be able to focus on celebrating my wife's birthday. Better value, better atmosphere just down... More
