Birthday celebration. Excellent service and they spaced out our courses to give us plenty of time to enjoy ourselves and each other’s company

Was a more than pleasant surprise that Central Florida has such a hidden culinary gem. We were led to believe that it would be difficult, if not impossible to to locate fine cuisine in the area. We had recently dined at The Inn at Little Washington as well as at Trummer's On Main; both in Northern Virginia and The Chef's Table was of equal in quality, flavor and presentation. Highly recommended, but with with limited seating (appeared to be 10-12 tables) I am afraid it will be hard to get reservations, once the word spreads.

Service was awesome. Top notch. Food was exceptional, but because this was not our first visit we expected that. Ambience was also very exceptional....

This was NOT a good value for money, our bill should be half of what it was. We were charged $90 + gratuities for 2 people, the portion size of the 3 courses should not have exceeded $40.

We were literally give 1 regular appetizer size portion, and asked to split that into 3 different courses.

We were fortunate enough to have the table right at the kitchen - the definition of "Chef's Table". Spent a lot of time saying "hey, what's that?" between courses as the dishes that I wasn't having left the kitchen. Everything was delicious down to the rolls and butter. The food was prepared as requested and served hot. Our beverages were never more than 1/2 empty. Everyone in our party agreed that everything was outstanding. One of the things I like the most is how the servers can tell you all about how the food was prepared and are knowledgeable about the wine parings. Many high end restaurants don't have that level of service. In some cases, I'm not sure I'd want to know!
As far as 'value' goes...
If you want fast and cheap, go to Ruby Tuesdays or McDonalds. If you want outstanding quality in food and service, this is well within the price range! There's a reason why they refer to this as a "dining experience".

We have been here 3 times, and each time the food is great. The server was very personable and knowledgeable about the food and wine, but could have been a little more attentive to our needs during and between courses as our two previous occasions displayed. It is a great special occasion place and we will be back again.

This is my absolute favorite restaurant and we try to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays there and share with others because I always feel like the occasion was truly special from the moment we walked in to the end when we leave.
This was our anniversary of 54 years and every thing was as expected. The meal was perfect. I had the lamb which was cooked to perfection, my husband had the sea bass which was delicate and extremely tasty and my daughter and friend had the pork and had nothing but raves for the flavor.
We will definitely be back again for our next occasion.

Really excellent experience overall. The two things that prevented this from being a 5 star review are the table we were seated at and the temperature of my food.
We were sat in a very very small room with two other tables and my chair was almost in the walkway next to the kitchen. Not ideal if you wanted to have an intimate dinner with meaningful conversation. A bit uncomfortable and too close for comfort.

Also, my appetizer dish was cold. I was excited about it and it had melted cheese on top. When it arrived it was barely room temp. The cheese had been melted but was almost hard again because it had cooled. Tasty but cold.

Most disappointing was my main course. The pan seared sea bass. Cold, cold, cold. This meal would have been exceptional if the temperature was right. This food isn’t meant to be served room temp.
The cheese plate and the wine pairing was spot on!

I would recommend to others.

We celebrated a special occasion at Chef's Table. The waiter did an excellent job explaining the menu items, and was very attentive. The food was phenomenal and prepared exactly as described. The waiter suggested the wine parings with my meal, it was spot on. It was our first time, but not the last.

Our 4 th visit there and it was the least favorable unfortunately. First 3 times we sat in the “ cellar” room and this time we sat up by the kitchen. Very very loud. Was our anniversary and we couldn’t hear each other talk. We will be back, but I’ll want to. E sure we do not sit by the kitchen again.

Great place in Orlando area. Not at the level of NYC or Miami. Great service. Fresh ingredients but a bit trying too hard? Its named chefs table but not much to be special about chefs table. BUT. For the price, it was great. Wine selection and flight of beers are great price.

The food was outstanding! The service was great! We loved this dinner which was celebrating a birthday. The meal was perfectly paced for being about to actually enjoy the food and take your time. Also, The location of this hidden gem is in the cutest town of Winter Garden, we enjoyed strolling along the street after dinner to see all the cute shops and gorgeous landscaping on the streets.

Each course was creative, taking simple food items and making them elegant. Even though each course was made as a small individual plate, the entire meal was more than my wife and I could eat in one sitting.
Jeff our server was very knowledgable of the food, and wine selections we requested.

Overall an enjoyable experience.

Wonderful Easter brunch, one of many special occasions we’ve spent at Chef’s - we certainly can’t recommend them highly enough. Their service is incredible - Jeff treats us like family every time we are fortunate enough to be there. The food is stellar...consistently stellar. The tasting room is an extension of this excellence, with awesome cocktails. If you haven’t been, not sure what you are waiting for...

Excellent experience and incredibly tasty pre-fixe meal. There wasn't one thing we didn't like. It was a slow done experience so if you want to be in/out with no table conversation this is not the place. My only request for adjustment was the overhead music. I would have preferred something to match the historic ambiance like jazz, or something other than an oldies 70s mix.

We did the Easter Brunch. It was by far the best meal we've had. Three courses served family style, not just one dish but three in the first two courses and two in the dessert course. Plus they have the most delicious specialty cocktails. Their regular brunch was fantastic but I highly recommend next year doing the Easter Brunch. I promise you won't be sorry....just extremely full! :-)

It was not like our other experiences here. The service was only average . The food was greasy. The “happy anniversary “ post card was totally tacky ....a cheap advertising strategy for the business .
We have previously had amazing experiences here. It was particularly disappointing as we were celebrating a special occasion.
