Chef's Amazing Table
What a joy to find a place that is exactly as advertised. The experience was VIP from the moment we arrived. Out wait staff was personable, competent and attentive without being overbearing. The courses were served with great timing. The food arrived wonderfully presented and tasted even better than it looked. It was awesome and generously portioned. Can't wait to go back and try the front of the house' "tasting room". A great place with two options to experience, you won't be disappointed.
Come back every year on our anniversary
For the past 4 years we have come on the same night of our anniversary and Taran has been our waitress for 2 of those years. She remembered us from last year and remembered what I had for dessert! - maybe it was in a computer system somewhere but to me it was an extra touch and very personable! I loved it!

This is a one of a kind experience if you eat in the back for price fare. The attention to detail is amazing. The servers are so knowledgeable about the food. Your meal will be delicious and it takes from 90 minutes to 2 hours to finish the complete experience. Get the cheese platter!!

"Fine Dining"...not really!!!
My family and I have been to the Chef's Table about 7 times. On 06/02, we went with some friends. We were having a great time until Alicia Havard (GM) approached our table and asked us to move to the bar because they needed our table for another reservation. One of our friends was enjoying a glass of Port Wine. I have been in MANY fine dining restaurants in my life, and I have never experienced something like this. It was embarrassing. The following day the owner (Laurie Tarter) called me to apologize, and she told me that this is “customary in the fine dining industry”. Not sure if she was referring to just Winter Garden “fine dining” because this is definitely not “customary” anywhere else. It is very unfortunate because the food is delicious; however, I will not recommend a restaurant that concocts a farfetched custom to excuse itself. And the worst part? We were giving the Chef’s Table a third chance after two back to back horrendous customer service experiences in the front/bar area of the restaurant. Unfortunately, the Chef’s Table lost four regular customers and two potential ones. We will never go back!!

Can't be beat for special occasion celebrations. Outstanding food. Superior service with extremely knowledgable staff. There isn't a bad server in the bunch, but we happen to really enjoy Colin. I learn something new and interesting from him every time. If you're on the fence, just take the plunge. You won't be sorry!

The best fine-dining deal for the money in the Central FL area. Nick, our server the last few times we've dined at the Chef's Table, is immensely personable and helpful while also providing outstanding service. We adore the Chef's Table.

Our first time, but we will be back. We did the 3 course and the menu covered our crew of 5. The food and presentation were simply outstanding. The service was superb. No part of the experience was disappointing.

The fixed price menu with paired wine tasting was fairly priced and excellent. Very interesting wines. Table 102 for 2 has clear view into the kitchen. My new favorite place in Orlando.

Service was second to none and the food was absolutely amazing. Our chef took the time to go over the 3 course menu in detail to ensure we would be happy with the selections we had made. Everything was prepared to the highest of standards and exceeded my expectations. Even after the meal the chef walked us out and gave us a short tour of the hotel lobby. We will definitely dine again at the Chef's Table and plan to spend a few nights at the hotel itself. 5 Stars!

We love going here to celebrate special occasions. We have found that if we go on a Sunday night we are able to get a 6:30 seating because it is not as crowded The food is excellent and we always get the yummy cheese platter! You cannot go wrong if you choose this restaurant!

Special occasion celebrating 3 birthdays
We had a party of six and all of us enjoyed our time together. The food and service was excellent !
Special place for a special occassion
Celebrated a birthday with a wonderful meal and excellent service! Colin helped us through each course and explained our wine pairings wonderfully. Love this restaurant ❤
Worth a visit ..Great food and service. You will not be disappointed
To really enjoy the experience and food, you have to do the wine pairing. Their knowledge of the wineis wonderful. Great food, great service. Don't be in a hurry, it's an oasis from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Can't wait to go back
Great Find for Foodies!
Finally got to Chef's Table and it was fantastic! Great menu selections and wine choices. Got wine pairing with dinner and perfectly done all around! Attentive and helpful service, great food and wine, will definitely return soon! Welcome to Winter Garden!
This was our first time here. We were very impressed. I want to say also that Tarin, our server was excellent. She is very into the flavors of all the choices and described everything very well. Every choice we made was great. We are looking forward to getting back to Florida so we can visit them again.
Best experience! Best food! Best service! Will definitely be going back real soon! Love this place!
More than a Meal: A Romatic "Foodie" Experience
Intimate, romantic atmosphere with an "old inn" flair; sophisticated flavors and wine pairings; a peek into the kitchen; and our server's honest suggestions, informed language and delightful style made the meal an experience. A wonderful choice for our 30th wedding anniversary ❤️ Will definitely return
So great, we love eating here!
So great, we love eating here!
Wonderful service. The server was relaxed, informative and quick. The food was absolutely delicious. The wine, generously poured was excellent. My husband ate every morsel of his 3 choices and half of mine. I was surprised that the bill wasn't larger.
Second Visit Disappointing
My wife and I were looking forward to our second visit to the Chef's Table given our prior experience, the hype this restaurant receives, and the difficulty of getting a weekend reservation. Maybe this created too high of an expectation for our second visit, but we were a bit disappointed. On the positive site the decor was the expected "vintage" charm sitting near the kitchen, the fixed price is very reasonable for the three course dinner, and the service was outstanding. However, my Bloody Mary was mediocre and the wine list could use some additional popular California selections. For the first course my wife ordered the "house specialty" mushroom torte while I ordered the raw salmon. My salmon was OK but her mushroom torte seemed overcooked as it was on the dry side and with little taste. Perhaps the time has come to retire this "signature" appetizer. For the main course my wife had the Char and I had the steak...both were good.. just not outstanding or even very good. For dessert I had the cheesecake and my wife had the bread pudding...again good but not very good. The overall experience was good enough for us to return, next time without such lofty expectations, but not anytime soon.
Dinner for two w/ a kitchen view
Our table was ready early, located towards the back near the surprisingly quite kitchen was a cosey table for two well attended by Jeff who was able to meet all our needs. The salmon was light and the mushroom crepes were earthy, both expertly prepared.
One of the best Orlando restaurants for this local foodie

Wonderful overall! Can't wait to go back!! Tip, get the duck for the first course:)
A Little Pricey But Very Good
We went on Valentine's day so the restaurant was charging a little extra per person (total was $75pp not including tax/tip). The service, atmosphere, bar menu, wine list, and food was all exceptional... just maybe a little pricey. The normal (non-Valentine's) rate is around $50 and I think the value is solid at that price point. Also, it felt like the kitchen picked the "sure-fire" menu with steak/lobster since that probably had the broadest appeal on the big holiday... but we would have liked to see something a little more adventurous and different (which is more the norm from what I've been told). Regardless, this was our first time at the restaurant though and we are super excited to go back... what an awesome place!

Went with my wife for Valentine's Day. What a wonderful restaurant!! Food was fabulous, service was fantastic. We'll definitely be going back.
They're better than this
I don't want to write a negative review. This is an honest review. The restaurant was recommended very highly by someone who's opinion I trust. I'm certain they can do much better. But, for what I paid and what I received, there certainly was something missing. In truth, my meal and Emeril's was better tasting and cost half as much. I fear that for Valentine's Day, which is when my wife and I went, perhaps they had to take certain steps to increase their profitability or just manage their menu for the kitchen, something. The service however was outstanding and the restaurant was very charming. The value for money is really where my experience was a 'negative' one. However, I again don't want this to be a bad mouth review, it isn't. It's a fine restaurant with a fine staff. On my occasion, I just wasn't impressed.
Valentine's day Dinner
My Wife and I totally enjoyed the valentine's day menu at chefs table we had the wine pairing option and found the experience to be a foodies dream. cant think of anything we didn't enjoy from the Hudson valley duck, pear salad down to the chocolate tart (can't forget the poached lobster!!) outstanding!! Great friendly service, beautiful atmosphere even downtown winter garden is a nice place to walk around. I highly recommend this place to everyone loved it!
Always a Great Experience!
Being a career foodie I can honestly say each time I go these folks knock it out if the park!! Food & Service Outstanding!
