Diner Reviews
  • "Paid our 1st visit to the chefs table after hearing lots of great things. It was our anniversary so we thought we would try it out and are so happy we did. The food was excellent. We have eaten in many great steak restaurants but my husband thought his filet mignon was the best he has ever tasted. My lamb was also just delicious. You could tell a lot of love and thought had gone into making of the food. Our server Colin was such a pleasure and extremely knowledgable about the menu and really played his part in making the experience one we won't forget. We look forward to coming back again. "

  • "Chef Kevin and Laurie continue to impress with their take on the Chefs table experience. The staff and food are incredible. The menu is limited by design but is so enticing that figuring out what you want is difficult. The staff is highly educated on the menu, preparation style and wine list. Chef Kevin makes a point of spending time with each customer and making you feel as welcome as if you were dining in his home. Highly recommend as a great place to celebrate a special occasion."

  • "I found this restaurant recommended in a best of edition of a local travel magazine when visiting Orlando, the next time I came to town my wife and I decided to make reservations and give it a try. We are very glad we did. This is a wonderful find for two dedicated foodies like us. The food is fantastic and we enjoy the relaxed style of the presentation. The staff is very knowledgeable about the food and the history of the restaurant. It was great to speak with Chef. We had a great time and are already making plans to return, this time with fellow foodies so we can expand our options."

  • "My husband and I celebrated his birthday there and had a wonderful evening. Our waiter was super attentive and knew the menu well. We both enjoyed all of our dishes and our, main courses were exceptional. My husband had pork chops and I had grouper - both cooked perfectly! We will definitely be back, especially since the menu changes. The executive chef came to our table to speak with us and everyone around us was enjoying their food and evening as well. We were brought a mini dessert of bourbon pecan pie with a candle for the special occasion. It was a great touch!"

  • "We had heard about The Chef's Table at the Edgewater Hotel from a Scott Joseph review. Our experience lived up to his high praise. We dined with another couple and tasted off each other's plates so we got a well-rounded taste of the offerings for dinner. The food was well prepared, attractively presented, and as promised. While it was adventurous, it was not trendy. Our appetizers, entrees, and desserts were excellent in every way. The staff is very knowledgeable, very helpful without being overbearing, and the service was prompt but never rushed. The owner stopped by our table so we learned a little of his food background -- again, knowledgeable but not overbearing. He was genuinely interested in our experience. Well done!"

  • "Food was absolutely delicious and the service was outstanding! Great place for an anniversary or romantic night out, without the kids. NOT cheap though so we plan on using this place as our go to date night restaurant. Most amazing appetizer ever was the mushroom crepe torte."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The wine pairing dinner is absolutely fantastic. Three courses; appetizer, main dinner and dessert; all excellently paired with a glass of wine. My guest and ieach ordered something different and we shared so we both got to try more items on the menu. Our favorites were the mushroom crepes, frois gras, pork chop served over polenta, and the chocolate torte. Everything g was exceptionay prepared and delicious. Portion are good sized and you wio tea e here hungry. Wine selection appeared excellent and wait staff extremely knowledgable about each dish on the menu. Even the chef came to our table. This place is a gem we would definaty come back to dine."

  • "I love this restaurant and have been there before, but Chef Kevin outdid himself this time. The seared duck foie was the best I've ever had. It was seared to perfection, served on reduced maple syrup that had been aged in a bourbon cask and also had blueberries with lavender honey on the plate- AMAZING! I had the lamb w red bean/olive/caper berry side and boy did it pair perfectly. I don't always love lamb, but this was outstanding. I really can't say enough about this restaurant!"

  • "We had an exquisite meal and extraordinary service at The Chef's Table this week. Our server was Colin and I urge you to request him. He has a passion for food and wine and communicates it quite well. We had a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed the various meals paired with wines. The mushroom appetizer is a must! We look forward to returning and to trying The Tasting Room."

  • "I went to the Chef's Table and was very pleasantly surprised with our server, Terin's, extensive knowledge of the menu and how each item on the menu is prepared. I went in thinking I would have one thing but ordered something completely different and I was not disappointed. The quality of the food for the price was outstanding. I'm not surprised by all of the awards they have won. Keep up the good work, The location is a bit out of the way but well worth the drive."

  • "We had a great meal. The service however was not good. We waited an inordinate amount of time between courses, and the wait for desert was BRUTAL. They took our desert order at the time of the order so there is NO EXCUSE why the entre and desert were delayed. Other than staring at an empty table between courses, restaurant was good."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "Had a great diner to celebrate special occasion. Meal size and time to enjoy each course was just right. We had an evening enjoying the food and wine and conversation. Waiter was very knowledge able about all courses and wine to compliment the selections. Our table was beside the kitchen which was interesting to watch. It was actually quite but not "elegant" or stylish. Just excellent food and service. Would recommend."

  • "The signature appetizer, the mushroom crepe, is so creamy and rich and delicious - don't miss it! Presentation of all the courses was excellent. Love this neighborhood restaurant that is a cut above the usual. Highly recommended."

  • "The Chef's Table specializes in providing gourmet food with the freshest ingredients available with fine sauces and wine selections with each appetizer, entrée and dessert offered on their limited menu. We have take many out of town guests to this gem which is off the beaten tourist path in Winter Garden Florida. It is a locals delight. The location is in an old hotel and we happened to attend on a Saturday night when the community was hosting a vintage car show. The March Florida weather was delightful for a walk around the classic cars to help digest the great meal that we ate at the Chef's Table at the Edgewater."

  • "The food was awesome, The service needs to be improved for this type of price. We waited at the front counter for four an half minutes until we were greeted then once greeted we waited another three minutes for us to be walked to our table with a reservation. After we sat down 8 an half mins later we got our first drink order. I asked the server next to us for a glass of wine and she said nick is your server he will be right here. THIS IS NOT CUSTOMER SERVICE. SAY YES HOW CAN I HELP YOU SORRY FOR THE WAIT!!!!!!!!!! The chef came out and visited the table next to us but not our table we felt as because this was our first time we were not the "regulars" our service differed."

  • "Get there early and seat at the bar for an hour before your reservation time. At the bar you will meet Collins. Well educated and good manner he will start a nice and very respectable and pleasant conversation about drinks and wines. Your time comes and once at your table the service is precise and cordial. Nothing is overwhelming. Our waitress answered all the question in a very direct and effective way. Very helpful. Food started coming to the table very soon and never had to wait for the next dish. Portion size was excellent and food cook to perfection. Love it."

  • "Our best friends from Columbus Ohio were visiting and they are both foodies. I wanted a special night so we came to Chef's Table. We were not disappointed in any way. In fact our friends said that they would come back to Winter Garden just for this place (if we didn't still live here) I was so happy with my food choices and loved the wine pairing. Would not have expected how the combinations blended so well. Thank you so much for making this a great memory and good times with great friends."

  • "This was an anniversary dinner. We live on the other side of town so it was about a 45-50 minute trek...and well worth it! When we first walked in, all dressed up, we stepped into a bar. It was Fat Tuesday. Great, I thought. Here we are with a bunch of beer swilling Mardi Gra revelers. My wife looks like she just stepped out of a magazine, all dressed up and looking fantastic and I bring her to a bar. Crap! Well, we were escorted through part of the kitchen...it's getting better?.... and into a very intimate dining area. It was quiet! The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, aware it was our anniversary. The fixed course structured menu with wine pairings was perfect. We will be back without a doubt."

  • "The whole meal and service was outstanding, the food was served in a timely manner [ I like to eat 1 course then move to the next not waiting to long in between] I liked that there was no salt and pepper on the table that told me that the Cooks and or Chef took the time to make sure the food was properly seasoned. The only thing was my wife's dessert which was the chocolate torte would have been better if it was at room temp. coming from the fridge it was really hard,I had the bread pudding which was excellent [just a thought get rid of the gingersnap cookie it could break teeth]"

We were promptly served by a very courteous, knowledgeable and professional waitress. We enjoyed the atmosphere, and the relaxed pace of our meal. The duck and desserts were fabulous. Found the bread a little bit soggy, not crunchy, and the beet salad unexceptional. Overall a was a delightful experience; planning to return in a near future"
