I love The Chef's Table. I have only great things to say about it. First, they have Foie Gras. That automatically gives them kudos. And they prepare it perfectly. Yes, there is a small upcharge, but worth it. They have 3 course dinners, and you can also do a wine pairing with your dinner. With said Foie Gras, there was an amazing Riesling. My husband had the BLT salad, which he raved about. He chose a filet for dinner, while I had the (giant) pork chop. Both were well paired with sides, and with the wine selections. We were going to select the same dessert, but our wonderful waiter convinced us to order two different deserts. Can I just say that the chocolate desert was totally decadent, but the accompanying popcorn ice cream was amazing.. I would never have ordered it, but it was part of the desert. I was begging to take some home. It's about the same price, perhaps a little less than your upscale steak house (think Flemings or Fishbones) but with the entire meal included, it is a bargain. And the wine pairings are less than what we usually spend for a bottle of wine in a restaurant.

This is our 3rd visit to Chef's Table. The first two were outstanding. This last one was not up to the standard we usually associate with Chef's Table. I had the pork chop which was good, but lacking in any spices or real flavor. My wife had the fish; found out it was flounder and was hoping for snapper or grouper. We both think the flounder was not the fish a restaurant like this would typically serve.

Mid way through dinner, there was a "burning" smell, assuming from the kitchen, that permeated the dining area and made my wife start coughing. We ended up leaving earlier than anticipated due to this smell.

We will chalk this up as a one time issue and will be back again.

We went from Tampa to this lovely place that had great reviews for our anniversary. It was absolutely amazing and my only complaint is that we had reservations at 845. We arrived at 835 and they said the table wasn’t ready and directed us to the Bar. We sat there for 10 mins before finally being asked what we would like and 10 mins later I sent my husband to check what was taking so long to be seated. The lady apologized and had the gentlemen take us to our table. Looked like she forgot we were there. But due to being seated late we missed out next reservation for a dessert place to finish off our anniversary.

Enjoyed my first experience weeks ago. This time, introducing a friend, very disappointing. Appetizers were great, but the entrees were very disappointing. The duck was tough and extremely salty (unedible). My boyfriend's filet was tender, but extremely salty. The waiter gave us two drinks for free because of our disappointment. It will be awhile before we return.

Excellent dining, rotating menu. It would be considerably more upscale if the ambiance and environment were reflective of that. However, the decor matches the adorable street shops and vendors, plus there isn't pressure to feel dressed formally.

While I have only been for the 3 course dinner option, the tasting room looks enjoyable as well, and I will be visiting again to try. The 3 course meal had plenty of options, but nothing really vegan, and ensure to tell the wait person if you're a vegetarian. The chef was absolutely willing to accommodate and prepare something special for my partner. Save room for desserts, maybe two.

The Chefs Table never disappoints. Staff knowledge, customer service, cocktails and the food. Unmatched. For a truly satisfying dining experience, look no further. While it may be your 1st visit, it will not be your last and you will want to tell and bring others to experience their artistry. Simply, Food with Passion...come feel it!

Outstanding experience. Personal and attentive service, delicious cocktails, and every entree was well executed and very good (special props to the smoked pork chop - the best of all 4, imho). Do the wine pairing - good quality wines paired perfectly. I seldom give 5 stars, they deserver it.

We have been to the Chef's Table several times in the past and this experience did not live up to our expectations. The restaurant has always been a favorite and a destination for celebrations and to take special guests. The entee lacked and the by the glass wine selections were ordinary. The server was scripted. Certainly not the experience we had come to expect for the price.

We weren't sure what we were getting when we made the reservation, having never been there before, but once the waiter took over 5 minutes to describe only 12 items on the menu, we knew we were in for a treat and we were blown away. The amount of flavors and creativity from the chef was in credible and now one of our top 2 restaurants in all of Orlando area. You must try this if you like a variety of flavors that are done exceptionally well.

Slow and incomplete drink order. Martini was not cold, missing requested olives. Came out after appetizers. Long pause between appetizers and entree. Bread came out after appetizers. Second offering of bread had to be requested again. Server used my wine glass to serve my partner’s second glass of wine. Entree’s gnocchi was cold. Reduction on duck was salty. Server was loud and booming. Manager came out at end of entree. Duck breast skin was not crispy. Room smelled really bad of kitchen fumes etc. No ambience. Never saw the the chef. Very disappointing experience. Not recommended. Many better places in central Florida.

Memorable evening. Three course gourmet meal for under $60, excluding drinks. Excellent choices for each of the courses, each one individually explained by the waiter. Waiter extremely knowledgeable (and personable) about food and drinks. Spent over 2 hours there without realizing it, so enjoyable. Perfect service. Will be returning for another special dining experience, without question.
