Chef's Table at the Edgewater
I was recently planning my anniversary dinner and decided to give Chef’s Table in Winter Garden my business. I had looked them up and done my homework, however I was not expecting it to be quite as good as it was.
The ATMOSPHERE… Nestled in the heart of quaint, historic downtown Winter Garden, Chef’s Table seats (I’m guessing) about 20, in a couple of small kitchen-view rooms where you feel like you are part the family.
The SERVICE… The highly skilled staff is personable and friendly, and your hosts (and proprietors) Kevin and Laurie will bend over backwards to make your dining experience a pleasure.
The FOOD… The price is $55 per person. You chose a First Course, and Main Course and a Dessert (There are 3-4 choices of each per night) Wine, cocktails or the addition of a Cheese Tasting Plate are all additional.
Of course we had to get the Cheese Plate for the additional $16. The glorious Cheeses accompanied by the flatbreads, nuts and honeys were all well worth the extra couple of dollars!
My First Course was Roasted Beets, Baby Arugala, Pomegranite Vin-Goat Cheese Crème. It was earthy, fresh and flavorful!
My Main Course was Braised Beef Short Rib Wellington with Blue Cheese/ Red Wine Demi. It was an enormous portion, the Beef was tender and the Puff Pastry was delicate and buttery.
Finally for Dessert I chose the Chocolate Mousse Cake with Fresh Berries. It was rich and decadent, any Chocolate Lovers Dream!
In my opinion Chef’s Table was the perfect balance of Atmosphere, Service and Food, and I rate them all with the highest marks possible. Thank You for making our anniversary so special.
