    first time dining here, and the reviews lived up to the experience. We dine frequently and a knowledgeable staff is the one thing that is usually lacking. The staff here knows thier stuff. My wife and I have been in the business for over 30 years and know how tough this is to accomplish. Kudos to you and your staff great experience we will be back.

    I brought my boyfriend here for his 40th Birthday and the meal went flawlessly! Everything we ordered was spectacular... Beautifully presented course after course. He started with the Hamachi appetizer, I with the mushroom torte. They were both delicious. He had the duck as his main course which was perfectly prepared. I ordered the filet and it was amazing. We finished the meal off with the banana creme brulee and a sweet potato bread pudding which was the perfect end to a perfect meal. Will definitely be going back!

    The Chef's Table was an incredible dining experience. The food was delicious and impeccably prepared. The service was outstanding and very personalized. The restaurant is small, so your server spends quality time reviewing the menu and explaining the dishes. The price point is reasonable considering everything you get. I would definitely recommend this for a great date night or special occasion dining.

    My husband and I took our daughter and son-in-law there to celebrate a new home and finding out they are going to be parents! We had previously eaten in the tasting room and thought this special occasion was worth the chef's table. The food was very good although not necessarily the best I've ever had. If you are a real foodie you might be a bit disappointed. Wait staff was good and somewhat attentive albeit a bit slow at the start. Ambiance is good. 5 small, cozy tables near the kitchen. No chef ever came out to speak with us as the promotional materials state but this didn't detract from our enjoyment. All in all I would give it a thumbs up but probably would just stick to the tasting room in the future where you can get the same food.

    We had an very enjoyable dinner and with 6 patrons sampled each of the entree's. Pallet wise the flavor were wonderful. Meats were a bit undercooked but easily remedied. The signature mushroom tort 1st course is to die for! We brought our own wine and the corking fee was $20.00. Pretty standard for a restaurant of this caliber and we enjoyed retailing about our wine selections as well. Highly recommended for special occasions. Reservations required.

    When we first walked into The Chef's Table we didn't know what to expect as the front of the space is more of a bar scene. Our reservation was for the 'kitchen seating' which is a completely different atmosphere. Quiet, cozy & intimate. We opted for the wine pairing menu...excellent choice! Our server,Colin, was extremely knowledgeable in regards to the food and the wine and the pairings were perfect. This was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I've had in a long while.

    My wife and I had a rare night out without the kids and had been dying to try this local place that everyone raves about. Food was simply out of this world. My wife had the mushroom torte to start off with and she doesn't even like mushrooms. She could not stop raving about it. I had the pork chop which was hands down one of the best if not the best pork chop I had ever eaten in a restaurant. The service was top notch and the waiter was extremely knowledgable about not only the menu but the exact process in which each item was prepared. You can not go wrong with this place. They also have a tapas bar menu in the front of the restaurant that I am dying to try out. We will definitely be back here again.

    This experience is a great value for a three course "chef's table" experience. While you never really interact directly with the chef, the manager of the location and two servers are there to take care of your every need. There are four options for each course and both servers are fully aware of the items in each dish and what dishes pair well with each of the wines. If you are interested in a different pairing of food and wine, they will work with you to meet your taste. The quality of the food was like none of there in Winter Garden. While I would not compare the location to a five star restaurant, there were very strong characteristics that made the experience top notch.

My husbands main course was Luke warm when served and his sorbet was melting when it was served. It was a nice night, maybe our expectations were too high. We will give it another try sometime.

    Have had the pleasure of dining at The Chef's Table at the Edgewater at least 25 times since its opening. Clearly we love the place but last night we felt like they kicked it up a notch. The seasonal summer appetizers including watermelon salad and salmon tartare were outstanding both in terms of being light and highlighting bright flavor points. Their Filet Mignon is one of the best kept secrets in town and is hands down is one of the best steaks you can get in the country; not sure what they did extra last night but it was transcendent - steaks are continually transitioned from a garlic butter pan to the grill during the cooking process. Tourists- this is worth the drive for great local cuisine in a romantic, vintage locale.

    I found this restaurant on Open Table and it was the best EVER. It was my husband's birthday and I wanted something romantic and scrumptious. First appearance, you'd think you were going to a bar, but the hostess escorted us to a room in the rear and it was as though we crossed into another atmosphere. We were treated as though we were the only guest there. The waiter knew the menu from ingredients, to the origin of the entrees. Nick, was personal and that made the night even the more special. The food was SUPERB! We left saying to one another, surely we'd return. (And he's a tough cookie). The Chef's Table is a diamond in the rough and we recommend it to everyone now.

    My husband and I visited Chef's Table for a quiet Anniversary dinner. We were very happy with the choice. The food experience was amazing and the ambiance, quiet and relaxing. It was a great "getaway" for dinner. Winter Garden is very fortunate to have such a unique dining venue tucked away. We will definitely visit again soon! The menu changes and is reflective of the care and passion the chef places into the creation of the dishes. Look forward to the next visit!
