The chef hoped the meal would be as savory as he had described it. Savory most nearly means:

redolent

Explanation

“Mellow” is softened by age or experience, “palatable” is pleasant to taste, and “attractive” is pleasing to the senses. While both “palatable” and “attractive” have the same positive connotations as “savory,” the defintion as presented best lends itself to the word “redolent”.
