    What an amazing and surprising find! Whatever you do don't get discouraged enroute to the restaurant. It's a bit surreal as you pass a 7-11 into a whole different "world" but it's well worth it. Funny thing is I had to look at two diff apps to make sure I was in the right place. So now that we've arrived we walk into the restaurant which is a bar. Uh oh! But wait, there's more! The frt of the house escorts us to the rear of the est and what a trip. It's like opening a Christmas present. Lets get to the nitty-gritty: Staff: Plentiful and the best I've experienced in a quiet a long time. They know their stuff and they're passionate for the menu items and their origins show Ambiance: It's different but that's a good thing Food: Geez! it was insane! I won't tell you what I had, but I can tell you the porcini rubbed 16oz (1 freakin' pound) pork chop one of our dinnermates ordered was intense! I'm not a pork chop kind of diner but this one was done right. The flavor was on another level. Price: ~$55 for a 3-course and well worth it. So, make the effort and dine here.

    Somehow came across the Chef's Table at the Edgewater when looking for a restaurant to celebrate a family birthday - it is obvious that the team really cares about getting it right, from the call back to confirm a special request about the reservation, to the manager checking in with us at the end of the meal - The wait staff was very good about explaining all of the menu food items, and the accompanying wines (we chose the wine pairing) - All of the items were nicely prepared and service was perfect - would return, and would recommend, especially if you like tasting menus and wine pairings -

    Cher's Table has never disappointed! Excellent service and amazing food. Reasonably priced wine. Hard to beat, anywhere. This is a relatively unknown treasure and hope it continues! Only issue was no one at hostess stand to greet us so got off to a little bit of mis-step but that was quickly remedied.

    We selected the Chef's Table based upon its Zagat reviews and location on the west side of Orlando. We were not disappointed, in that the place lived up to its ratings, and then some. We opted for the fixed price, 3 course dinner. Options for each course were varied, something for most everyone. Presentation of each course was excellent. Our server was knowledgeable, and clearly enjoyed working at the Chef's Table. Wine selections were equally varied, and priced to provide real value. It was a perfect evening.

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.
