Evelyn's Table is an intimate kitchen bar, tucked away in the cellar of The Blue Posts pub, serving seasonally-inspired southern European dishes.

Kindly note that ‘counter’ bookings are along the kitchen bar in front of the chefs and ‘high-top’ bookings are our two small tables adjacent to the kitchen bar.

Fantastic experience. Very intimate setting, beautiful food and warm, friendly service.

The chefs were happy to engage with us and describe the dishes and how they were put together. We had five dishes (between two) and all were superb, especially the pollock and the lamb.

We dined on Evelyn's table on a Wednesday night. The place is super small, able to sit about ~12people on the counter and ~4 people in two tables they have.
The atmosphere is good, a bit noisy though. The decor is nice and the chefs are trying to interact with customers.
The food was on the OK side, nothing too extraordinary. Some dishes are really nice (i.e. beef tartare), but some others have intense sauces that hinder the actual food (i.e. too much mayo on the oysters).
I would say the food is on the pricey side, comparing with the value that you get and the whole experience.
The main reason I left with a bad impression was the service. We finished our main course well ahead (~30mins) in time. We asked another drink and we were expecting the dessert menu. Dessert menus never arrived. When i asked for the menu I was told that they cannot give it to us, as they are expecting other customers for the counter seat. I find that a bad service, as neither we were offered the dessert menu in time, nor were told that we need to leave the table after a particular time.
They struggle to mimic concepts like Kitchen Table, but they have a long way to go.

A great intimate venue for watching excellent food be prepared in front of you
A decent house white wine and Denis Hopa on tap (from the upstairs bar)
Friendly chefs more than happy to explain ingredients and methods used

Great use of space and really feels like group outing at a Chef's Table. We had high expectations after such amazing reviews. To be fair, clearly a lot of effort goes into creating these dishes. The squid was excellent, but everything else was only "above average" to "good" (say 6/10). We found the food a tad salty, the pasta a bit chewy (certainly not al dente) and we noticed a fairly high degree of inconsistencies in the preparation of like for like dishes between customers (although maybe this is the point?) Anyway, after about 1.5 hours we were ready to leave the basement and back to ground level. One other thing, we were there on a Saturday with a private party about to take up their group booking at 930pm wish and we (and everyone else) were definitely rushed out towards the end of our meal. For example, the couple next to us were recommended to order their dessert quickly only to be told "you can eat it upstairs in the pub"! Hmmmm.

One of the best restaurants in London. I’m a huge fan of The Palomar and The Barbary, but Evelyn’s Table exceeded my expectations. Service and food are both incredible!!!

Great ingredients treated with respect that you will want to eat again and again. It’s a wonderful experience and the sheer passion with which everyone works is refreshing and makes you want to go back and tell all your friends. Simply wonderful.

Booked this for my boyfriends birthday and it was the perfect location for an intimate, romantic but buzzy evening. The food was incredible and it’s fabulous how the chefs bring your food over personally and explain what’s what.
Great service as well.

The staff are delightful, the chefs really know their craft. The cheese course was just delightful. The violet artichoke was amazing. Loved the linguine and all the fish dishes. Definitely worth a visit and check out the beer on the ground floor. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Remember though it's TINY. So super cosy.

We was welcomed by the bar team of the bar above the restaurant and when our reservation time came we was taken downstair it was surprisingly small but we got the point .... there is a long bar and instead of bartenders u got a kitchen and 3 or 4 chefs and actualy u can chat them up and wach them how they cook your(or someones else ) food, it gives a vibe of exclusive and private dining. Very impresed and definatly going back!

The food was delicious and the “secret” hideaway style of the place is great (as is the music). The food was very expensive but really special.

Not every seat is as good as the one next to it and those sat to the right of the counter will have the best experience.

The chefs - who are cooking in front of you - hand you the dishes as soon as they’re ready which is lovely but seemed to have varying levels of enthusiasm and descriptions dependent on where you were sat. I got more information on our dishes from listening to it getting delivered to other customers than I did from the mumble we were presented.
