    We had the best gourmet burger to date. The chef came out seated us because it was busy and talked to us, made a wine suggestion that was terrific. Food was very good and you could tell by the people coming it is a local favorite. Not very big so reservations might be necessary, but worth it.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    We went for a "belated" Valentine's Day dinner. We searched for a unique place and found it here. It's quite a small place ( hence reservations required), but we went because of reviews we had read. We could hardly believe how good the food is prepared, and served. It's not large servings, it's artistry of the food! We had salmon, large scallops, their incredible award winning hamburger, and southern chicken with their own batter. We shared everything. And then dessert was an incredible banana pie. The service and food here is outstanding. Definitely a place to go to for a dining experience .

    We heard from our daughter how good the food was, so we tried. I had checked out the menu online and off we went. Food was outstanding and totally different than any we had previously. Serverer was quite knowledgeable about the food and very cordial to talk with. If it weren't for the fact we are from WI. we would be regulars.

    We were very disappointed! we had house guests visiting from Bulgaria, and we had been raving about the wonderful Cioppino we had eaten on our last visit with friends, and they were anxious...when we arrived, the menu only had four entrees, pork, chichen, steak and one other, can't recall, no cioppino! Which is the reason we had taken our guests in the first place! Not a good experience...won't be recommending The chef's table any more.

    Absolutely loved the pesto tater tots that we saw in multiple other reviews, and the fried chicken was DE-lish. I got the Hills Burger and was NOT disappointed! Food was great, restaurant could use some sprucing up a bit but I hear they're opening a second location in Roseville.

    Always a treat to dine at Chef's Table. Outstanding culinary creations with unique blends of flavor make their dishes both delicious and memorable. Sensible portions, plus a great use of seasonal vegetables that are locally-sourced. Service is fantastic! Wine and beer lists are hand-selected to complement their menu. Be sure to make a reservation ahead of time - space is limited, allowing for a cozy, bistro-type feel, but it usually is pretty full.

    Excellent fried chicken as recommeneded by most reviews. Mashed potatoes with bacon gravy, seasonal veges, Only thing missing was a honey butter biscuit! Shrimp linguine/pasta dish with only 3 shrimp of the 31-40 count size. This was ordered from the large plate menu, Really 3 shrimp on an $18.00 pasta dish?? disappointed.

    The owner stood behind the bar the entire time we were there talking with one set of customers while enjoying a glass of wine himself. He did zero work. He also allowed other employees behind the bar, in the kitchen area to drink alcohol while they were working which is completely unprofessional. That aside, the food was very good. We had the hamburger, which is pricey, but nontheless, fantastic as are the pesto fries and bacon brownie. We also had the fried chicken, which was good, but expected better from the reviews. The bacon gravy on the chicken is excellent. We had made reservations ahead of time, and although there were other tables open, we were sat by the door. We assumed the other tables were reserved, but soon discovered, no.

    We made a reservation on open table. When we arrived we could see our name on the computer, but were told they didn't have a table ready for us. After about 5 minutes we were told we could have a seat at the bar. Kind of annoying but you can get the full menu sitting bar or table so it ended up being fine. Service was attentive and interactive. Noise level was a bit high, but its a smaller place and there was a rather tipsy group having a good time nearby.

    Took my wife there for her birthday at our son's recommendation. What a find. Pesto fries were WOW. Wife had the fried chicken with mashed potatoes and bacon gravy. She says chicken is best she's ever had and she's an excellent cook. The gravy was something special. Brussel sprouts was the vege and the way they were prepared anyone would be a fan, including me and I don't generally like them.(I got a taste of her dinner) I had the hamburger that this place is famous for. It was not on the menu at the time.(Menu changes a little every night except for the chicken). I asked for it and it was no problem. I am a hamburger freak. Its my favorite meal. This was the best. Its hard to describe all the flavors that come into play. All EXCELLENT !!!!

    TCT has lost it's spark. It has been our go to date night restaurant for a few years and early on the menu was constantly changing, the food was interesting, and the staff enthusiastic about what they were doing. Over the last few visits, we've seen them slowly lose their mojo and this last visit was the nail in the coffin. The menu was the same it was six months ago when we visited and the food was good, though not bright and inspired like it once was. It's starting to look run down - the place needs a new coat of paint and the same scratches and holes in the drywall have been there for a year. The staff was friendly, but lacked the interest and enthusiasm they once had. I really want them to stay, but I won't be back for a while.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/21/2012
    Not a good place to go for an over rated food menu. Noisy bar with locals tossing the F bomb about. My chicken was tough and chewy and my wife's schrimp was rubbery. The beer list was limited and the wine was way over priced. The place is too small for dinning and the bar and kitchen all in the same area. The bar is right on top of the dinning tables and foot trafic is always bumping your chair. They had a good local bar scene and maybe that will keep the doors open, but it won't be the over priced food and wine list. If you go take your own bottle of wine and pay the corkage fee it will be more reasonable with a wine you like. Would not recommend.

    I hadn't been there for awhile but was pleased to see that they are maintaining their high quality cuisine. The menu is limited but does offer a nice selection of small plate/appetizers. Their special chicken is the best I've ever had. They always have some interesting choices on their wine and beer lists. I try to dine early due to the high noise level when the restaurant fills up. Great service from Brahm, who has been there forever and really enjoys the give and take with his customers.

    The owner is an arrogant twit...seriously self-absorbed. Did not give the slightest nod to us - new customers - as we did not fit in his social circle for the night.Food was excellent. Waiter was excellent. Our party of nine spent several hundreds of dollars. Will never go back and put another penny of our hard earned money in this man's pocket. There are too many good people in the industry working so hard for their customer's business.How 'bout you try to show a little humility and appreciation for your customer who got you there?
