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

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
