The food was amazing, tasty, well presented, delicious and unique. We had a memorable experience. The filet was by far one of the best I have experienced. The staff was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. I was hoping to see the chefs prepare my meal but my back was to the kitchen. I could have only hoped for a different table, even still it was a wonderful experience.

We did the wine pairing with our meals, and everything was excellent. The service was impeccable. Each and every server was very knowledgeable of the food options as well as the wines. I would highly recommend this to anyone on a special occasion or even for a nice dinner date.

Normally very good but this visit was subpar. The food was great as always but the service was pretty terrible this time. We went 15+ minutes with finished dishes left on the table and had no sign of the waiter, or he would walk by and ignore us.

We got the cheese platter starter and the crustini bread they sent out to put the cheese on was possibly the hardest bread I have ever had. It tore our mouths up pretty bad... The roof of my mouth is still a little sore two days later.

I was stuffed by the time dessert was ready and asked for it to go. Bug mistake, probably my fault not theirs, as I had ordered the creme brulee. They just kind of plopped it in a cardboard box and it was just basically a puddle if sludge by the time I got home. Again, I suspect this type of dessert is not supposed to be transported home but eaten right away, so likely my fault on that.

The entree and starter were fabulous as always. I'll certainly be back but hope next time I get a little better attention from the wait staff and they can do something about those rock hard, mouth cutting crustini for the cheese plate.

We had heard wonderful things about the Chef’s Table. It lived up to its reputation for good food and atmosphere. Our waiter was wonderful. He was knowledgeable about the different courses. His wine recommendations were excellent. We had a wonderful evening with friends and will definitely go back.

Enjoyable evening. Starters and desserts were excellent. My partner’s main was too salty ( apparently duck is cooked in brine) but when he spoke to the waiter about it he quickly offered him to change it for another dish, which was then cooked perfectly. They even gave us a discount for the inconvenience. Very nice place and excellent service. Will go again.

The Chef's Table is always a delightful evening. Once again, we had our favorite server, Colin, who was attentive and knowledgeable. Dinner is 3 courses, pris fixe, and optional wine pairings are excellent. Colin knows his wine, and has given us excellent advice, and sometimes an off menu choice when we have had the dish before. I ordered the foie gras - a small upcharge, but I am addicted. My main course was a filet mignon. I don't order it often here, but it is really better than at most of the local upscale steak houses. Perfectly rare, tender, and the mushroom rub just added to the delight. Sweet potato bread pudding rounded out my meal. Not sure how long it well be available, because it is seasonal, but was divine. And just the right size. If you haven't been, give it a try. I promise you will be glad you did.

From the moment we walked in the staff was friendly and attentive. Sat in the back by the cooking station and was great to see all the foods going out. Our waiter Colin was knowledgeable and accommodating with foods and wine. He was great at explaining each dish and wines to recommend. I noted in my reservation I was a vegan and my meal was 100% catered to this. The meals with my family dining was amazing and they enjoyed every bite. I would recommend this place without a doubt and you won't regret your decision. I can't wait to go back!!!

Love this restaurant! I was worried about having 8 people, but we had our own private room across from the kitchen, it was so cozy and made for a great experience. Our waiter, Gari was excellent. He described the items on the menu and the cocktails down to the last ingredient, truly amazing. Everyone at the table was so impressed by his knowledge of the food items and recommendations. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection. A must try is the mushroom torte which was so delicious and the cabernet sorbet was very good as well. The cheese board was phenomenal, each variety of cheese was served with a jam or fruit that complimented the cheese, excellent starter. Next time I am in town, I will definitely make it a point to visit again.

We read about this place on reviews and ended up driving 35 min from busy Orlando. 1/2 way there I was saying to myself why travel this far when you have so many choices closer by. Once in the door it was like a typical local bar but then once you give your name, it’s like a speakeasy. They take you through an employees only door to another seating area situated close to the kitchen with private waiters and waitresses. Our waitress was wonderful. I took all her recommendations as she explained why on each selection. Looks like she loves her job because she enjoys traveling to foodie destinations near and far. All I can say is just go. Good people, good food, good prices. What else is there in life.

Inspiring and lived to up to expectations. This was my first time dining at the Chef's Table although I had heard nothing but positive reviews; all of which were true. The 3-course Chef's menu is perfect for not leaving you hungry with fancy but inadequate food nor does it suffer from excess, leaving all of us perfectly satisfied as the conclusion of the meal.

The Chef' menu consists of appetizer for one that includes 4 to 5 items that will satisfy almost any palate. The same with the main course, consisting of fresh Florida fish (black grouper on our night), Filet, Pork Chop, etc.. Dessert again offered 4 - 5 items from fresh fruit, chocolate torte, sorbet, and bread pudding.

Chef's Table is $58pp and you can add a wine pairing for $27 which is ~2 1/2 glasses of wine.

The offer an okay wine list, nothing spectacular but it pairs well with the food. Several draft and bottled beers are available as is an extensive drink menu from a well stocked bar.
