We had a good dinner - nice atmosphere,although rather loud. Very good service. The food was huge portions and not bad prices for what you get. My husband got a special with snapper and was very happy with it. I got duck breast, we'll cooked (med rare) but a bit salty. Our appetizer was a dinner sized portion of grilled... More

We enjoyed our dining experience at the Chef's Table. The chef is very creative, the ingredients fresh and the dinner was delicious. Our waiter was friendly and helpful and the service was perfect. This was one of three restaurants that we wanted to try when we visited Waynesville, and we will be back the next time we are in town.

I would recommend reservation especially on the weekend. I had 1/2 duck and it was exceptional. My boyfriend had the special of the day: Louisiana style pasta. Both were very good. We could not believe such fine restaurants in Waynesville.

On a Friday night at 6:30pm we lucked out and got a table. Very small dining area and very intimate. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Food was wonderful. All four of us were very pleased. Extensive drink menu. This is a wonderful date night place. When back in town we will certainly visit again. I do recommend calling for... More

We go here regularly and have tried almost all the restaurants in Haywood County. This is by far the best. Quality, taste, unique blend of flavors and everything is made within its kitchen - to include the pasta and bread. It's a small, intimate place where you get a view of Chef Josh "doing his magic." Everything we've had here... More

We went their for our anniversary. This is a very small restaurant with a limited menu. The food was adequate but the service was lacking in that there was a table next to us that must have been frequent diners because all the waiter's attention went to them. What we hoped would be a romantic dinner, wasn't. We probably won't... More

Such an unexpected surprise! I didn't think going to such a small town that I would get one of the best meals I have ever had. We have lived all over the country and in big cities. This is a must visit restaurant. You will regret NOT going. Service was impeccable. Our server was Andy.

My husband and I had a great dinner at Chef's Table. Grouper with risotto and Alfredo Chicken BLT made with fresh pasta. Wait staff was very attentive to our needs. Will definitely go back on a return trip to Waynesville.

..what more can you ask for? This little place definitely needs reservations. It seems to be a locals favorite, so you'll be in competition with the natives for a table here. The night we were in Waynesville and wanted to go, we called in the morning and it was already too late to book, but since we arrived on "Central... More
