I was concerned about getting a seat due to it being Valentine's Day, yet I was offered the option to sit at the kitchen bar or at the regular bar. I ordered the garlic herb stuffed chicken for dinner and creme brulee with preserved fruit and almond slices for dessert. They were both excellent. Even though the restaurant was busy, service was great.

I haven't watched magic in the making since dining at Hot & Hot Fish Club or watching the last Harry Potter movie. So to find rare talent in Kinston exceeded expectations. Scallops were cooked to perfection. Myer lemon and parsley veg delight was a great companion to the richness of the scallops. Highly recommend and will look forward to any opportunity to be in the area in the future.

We had another outstanding dinner @ Chef & the Farmer - our 3rd visit & we have never been disappointed. This "farm to table" establishment uses many local suppliers & lists them on a chalkboard in the front of the restaurant. Beth was our lovely server - who did a wonderful job on a busy night between Christmas & New Years. We started with Pimento Cheese Grits & Kale/navel Orange Salad - both outstanding. Our entrees included Bourbon Braised Pork Shoulder Lasagna (this is ordered by one of us every time), Seared Stripe Bass w/ collard green creamed rice, Rice Crusted Catfish & the C & F Burger - the flavors were amazing! Warm Brownie Pudding w/ peppermint ice cream & chocolate bark finished off a perfectly delightful meal. If you are ever in Eastern NC near Kinston, dinner @ Chef & the Farmer would definitely be worth your while...

My husband and I visited with my husbands parents. We had a wonderfully prepated meal. The food excellent and the staff knowledgeable and attentive. Probably one of the best places to dine anywhere. Defineately the best place to dine the immediate area.

In a small town in eastern North Carolina sits one of the most delightful restaurants we've ever eaten in. Featuring imaginative dishes prepared from local ingredients, Chef and the Farmer never fails to satisfy. If you are ever close to this part of the world, it is worth a side trip to find it.
