    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.

    We checked out the reviews before going and I have to agree with all the positive reviews I read. The filet was fantastic, so was the foi gras, and the mushroom appetizer. The duck was also amazing, and the wine pairings were fantstic! Nick our waiter was very knowledgeable, fun, and attentive.

    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.

    We went to the Chef's Table for our anniversary based on the glowing reviews it received in the Orlando Magazine Best of 2014. It lived up to its billing. Our server, Taryn, was fantastic. The wine pairing with our prix fixe 3-course meal made everything better. Highly recommend.

    This is a great place for a special dinner. The service is great and so is the food. I love the atmosphere of the old hotel as well as the fact you can see into the kitchen. The menu choices are varied and I think all the produce is locally grown. I can't wait to go back.

    This was our first visit. We heard great things so we were expecting THE BEST. The food was good, some better then others. 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.

This was our first time here, but we will be back often. Look for the public parking lot just up the street, it has no time restrictions.

    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!

    My crones and I sit in the tasting room many Friday or Saturday nights. I always wanted to see how the other half lives. Therefore I made reservations for my parents and I. We received really personalized service. We were guided through the menu course by course by Tarin. We decided on the Mushroom and Chive Crepe. Ma and Pa had the Chef's Filet. I ordered the Pork Chop with Goat Cheese, Candied Collards and Peach Chutney. It is a shame to call this a pork chop because it was more like a rack of lamb in it's presentation. A slice of pork heaven to be more precise. I had the Chocolate Bread Pudding with a little dollop of home spun ice cream. I was happy to spend the money and will be back! This was a real special place.

    This restaurant is very detail-oriented, we received customized menus upon arrival that said "Happy 5th Anniversary." This small detail set the tone for the rest of the night. Everything was just perfect and the food amazing. The Mushroom Crepe was outstanding, the Wagyu beef was so soft that a baby could eat it. The Crème Brulee was the best I have ever had.

    The Prix fixe 3 course meal is a pleasure. We started with a wonderful cheese plate (an additional course and up-charge). After that we had foie gras and heirloom tomato salad appetizers. The main courses were Filet cooked to perfection with a warm potato salad. The other was a Crown rack of lamb. I thought this was a little to spicy but very flavorful. The desert course was filled with rich and tasty choices. I found a very nice Bourbon to have with my dinner while my lady chose the wine pairing. I have to say the wine pairing enhanced the dinner 10 fold. The selections made both the food and wine better. I highly recommend the Chef's Table for a nice evening out or a special occasion.

    We had never heard of Chef's Table, Winter Garden, until recommended by a friend. Best recommendation in a very long time. I have been blessed to enjoy Burn's in Tampa, The Palm in Houston and NYC, Jimmy's Harborside Boston, and other great dining experiences. This was better. From the Chef's server to the quiet and small dining room with view of the kitchen, to great menu options, to some of the best food we have enjoyed, it was indeed as good as it gets. My wife says the pork chops were the best she's ever had ( i sampled and they were for me too) to my black grouper, prepared perfectly, the food would have been worth it even without the great setting. It's an expensive dinner for our budget and well worth the money. As good as it gets.

    My wife and extended family had a fabulous birthday dinner last sunday at the Chef's Table. We ordered every possible item on the menu and couldn't find a flaw in anyone of them. The Mushroom Tarte and Foie Gras was exceptional. The chef offered and created an excellent and simple dish that was not on the menu to satisfy my 6 year old's palate. I will be back for a romantic dinner for two or couples date night for sure.
