                            What a fantastic find. Great food and a very knowledgeable wait staff. It was a treat to be able to watch the kitchen and have a conversation with the chef. Would definitely recommend and will be going again.

                            First time at the Chef's Table. Great from start to finish. Greeted at the front door by friendly staff, Howard our waiter was outstanding. The food was excellent and the service through out was efficient. Would not hesitate to return.

                            I had high expectations for this place based on other reviews and recent media coverage of the restaurant. Unfortunately, while the concept is good, nothing quite hit the mark. The food all sounded like appealing creations; however, execution was lacking. The mushroom/chive torte, the fish and the pork were all over cooked and over salted. The serving plates were all very hot, so I think that the dishes were all held before being served. The salad was so-so. Food highlights did include a very nice cheese plate, and the desserts, which were all generally good. The portion sizes were generous, but unfortunately the food just wasn't anything special. We had a couple of cocktails before dinner; definitely nothing special there. Wine pairings with meal were good. The restaurant ambiance was also not a hit for me. Love the concept of an intimate dinner in an historic hotel setting (and such a perfect fit for downtown Winter Garden). Unfortunately, the dining space comes across as more shabby than chic. The lighting is poor, there are wires running overhead, and the overall feeling for me was dingy. While the cloth napkins and table cloths were nice, the barware, flatware and serving plates were very low end. (For the experience they are trying to sell, I would have expected a cocktail served in very nice glass, not one you could get at a dollar store). The service was just ok at best, and again for the type of experience promised, I expected the service to shine. There were 4 tables in our dining area, with the same wait staff assisting all four. Two of the other tables were seated shortly after we were. The server introduced himself to our table, and promised to come back for drink orders. He then visited both other tables, taking drink orders and providing (much too) detailed discussion of the menu, before ever returning to us (and remember we were seated first). Again...it wasn't bad, but just didn't wow.

                            The Chefs Table is elegance with old world charm. The best restaurant on Plant Street and in the Winter Garden area. Excellence in food and service. Have not tried the sister restaurant (the tasting table) so plan that for the next trip. Worth a drive to Winter Garden. Reservations are a must and one must try the Chef's Table.

                            Three-course prefix dinner, Quality was fair to good. Ambience was lacking in the sense you had to walk through an old hotel lobby that was closed through the kitchen to get to a room set up to serve 12 or 14 people. It was overpriced pour wine selection, one wait staff was unfriendly, to the point where the romantic atmosphere of the facility was lost. Did not recognize it was our anniversary. Seem to be in a hurry to get us through the meal and get us out the door. Not what you want to pay $225 for two people . Would not recommend would not go back.

                            As always, the Chef's Table delivered an excellent meal when we celebrated Mother's Day. Our table was ready when we arrived, the menu provided a array of choices for main entrée (fish, pork, beef, and duck, sorry vegetarians) and the service walked the line between being attentive while not being intrusive. We had the duck and pork ribeye at our table and both were outstanding. The pacing of the meal was spot on, we had finished our appetizers and were enjoying each other's company when the entrees arrived. I hate it when we are still eating our appetizers when they bring plates of more food with no room on the table, don't you? I highly recommend trying it if you have never been. It's a great place for any sort of celebration or romantic night.

                            05/08/2022 - Great Mothers Day meal at Chef's Table. Arrived a little early for the 1:30pm seating and walking through the Edgewater Hotel we asked a server about where to check in. Eric took the time to walk us to the reception desk and checked us in. We then waited at the outside tables while the prep was was being completed. We were seated and were pleased to find that Eric was also our server for the meal. He explained the menu and kept us updated on the pace of the entrees coming out. The three course Mother's Day meal was excellent in addition to the Mimosa and Bloody Mary specials. Definitely will bring ourselves and guests back in the future.

                            A bit of nostalgia is the setting, Ryan our server was outstanding, very knowledgeable, courteous, spent the time reviewing menu's selection and assisted us through the evening. The chef did a great job of presentation, quality of food but delicious as well. We will definitely be back. They pay attention to details.

                            Overall, it was a great dining experience. The ambiance isn't great and it's fairly noisy, but not enough to ruin your evening. It's just a very small, old and not what you could call intimate. The food was excellent and the server was knowledgeable and attentive. The price was good too. 3 course meal consisting of a choice of 4 appetizers, 4 entree's and 4 dessert's. There is also a wine pairing available if desired. Beer and wine selection was also very good. We'll definitely go back!

                            We have been spending special occasions at the Chef’s Table at the Edgewater for so many years that I can remember Chef coming to our table after our meal to ask about our meal having a moment to chat. The food and service staff are always remarkable and wonderful. This is definitely my favorite go to restaurant for a special occasion or to impress our friends and family. I look forward to spending more occasions here in the coming days and years.

                            JJ was our server. She was on top of it, acknowledged our lunch reservation and suggested we choose any table outside. She was very familiar with the menu but asked us if we wanted a paper menu or were OK with the QR code menu. She did have to point out the brunch section on the virtual menu as it wasn’t evident at first. I order the Benedict, my husband the 50/50 burger. When I asked if they had a Sauvignon blanc, JJ mentioned the winery, FireRoad. I hadn’t heard of it, but it was perfect. We both enjoyed our meals, my husband had his burger with a beer. The enclosed area in front was delightful on a breezy spring day. Somehow we were persuaded to share a desert, a butterscotch pudding. While the taste was good, desert on top of all that food was a bit much. We have eaten at the Tasting Room many times over the years, lately, always outdoors. It’s our favorite in Winter Garden for a leisurely lunch

                            Jeff, who is so warm, welcoming and passionate about the food there, and humorous to boot, made the overall experience that much more. Great food but coupled with team who believes and knows the every detail about what is being served and how paired, makes all the difference.

                            Our dinner was awesome starting when we arrived,we were seated promptly at our reservation time. The waitstaff team was great and explained all the menu options and gave us time to drink our pre dinner bubbly before bringing the first course. The menu was very diverse and well paired with the wine. My Branzino was cooked perfectly with the panko crust. My husband had the pork ribeye that was perfectly cooked as well, the portions were perfect as we had no leftovers! We will be back!
