A wonderful experience at this quaint restaurant. My husband had the lamb which was cooked to perfection. I don't like lamb but I had a taste and it was delicious. I had the pasta with the scampi and it too was perfect. It's rare to get homemade pasta and we watched them make it and cook it right before it... More

We had seven in our party and everyone thought the food was excellent. Handmade pasta and shrimp, huge lamb shanks, and perfectly cooked grouper. Also, the wine menu is excellent.

Small intimate restaurant in the wonderful town of Waynesville. The Chef, Josh, attends to each dish insuring that a meal is fantastic. Loved the total feel of this restaurant but the food was the most memorable. Depending on the season making a reservation a must. Have dined in many restaurants however the Chef's Table has risen to one of the... More

I really wanted to like this place. I really did, but I was not impressed. First, the sanitation grade was 91%. Once we were seated, it took over 20 minutes just to get a glass of wine. The service was slow. My husband and I each ordered the Grilled Romaine Salad - the salad was great, but the bacon on... More

Josh who is the Chef is wonderful! The food is great and he grows, raises and is quick to use all local products. He has his own farm. Amazing food and great wine!

Three years in a row on a fall trip we have enjoyed the great food at Chefs Table, but the level of service just does not equal the quality of food. In my opinion, the wait staff is understaffed. The waiter in the front not only waits on tables but greets guests as they arrive and both waiters bus their... More

Been here many times before. This time once again everything was spot on. We had caesar salad, always fresh and plentiful. Black and blue for me, which is an awesome dish. The sauce is out of this world. Filet for the wife which is always right up there with any of the finest steak restaurants. The crab cakes which we... More

Good food....interesting menu. Everyone around us got food but us. When we asked about our salads finally, the wait staff person said "oh it's right here and has been here for awhile"...I didn't know I was supposed to get it myself!! All that being said, the food was really good. Make a reservation, it's very small.

Andy really pampered us with great service tonight - - and served us a fantastic meal, to boot! We had great starters: The Grilled Romaine Salad is the best I've ever had. Tried this at home - 'not so much'. Fried Green tomatoes were also scrumptious. Our dinner entrees were Grouper Picatta and Grilled Porterhouse Pork. Both perfectly prepared and... More
