When we opened 12 years ago with nine tables and 30 seats, we had no idea what the future would hold for us and the Chef’s Table. It has been exciting watching our restaurant grow to now having 150 seats and two award winning concepts coming out of one very small kitchen!

It has been a pleasure and an honor to serve those in our community and to watch our business grow and our team shine! The community of Winter Garden is nothing short of magical and how lucky we have been to be in the middle of downtown Winter Garden where our hearts truly sing.

We have made the difficult decision to close temporarily and monitor the pandemic and to re-open our doors when we feel it is safe to do so.

To our extraordinary team… thank you for all the hard work, dedication, friendship and love! You are the heart and soul of our restaurants and you are the reason we have always been one of the best restaurants in Central Florida!

To all of our family, friends, and amazing guests… We are incredibly grateful for each of you! Thank you for your love and support that has kept us strong and has reminded us of why we do what we do every day!

Stay safe everyone and we will see you all soon!
With much love and gratitude,
Laurie & Kevin Tarter
