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

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
