Excellent food, so friendly too - a must go restaurant.

Do make a reservation and then go early so you can pop up to the cocktail bar in the top of the building - love this place too. fab martinis

Very cosy restaurant located in a basement with counter top seating overlooking the kitchen. Food was fine but nothing particularly special and the dishes we sampled lacked a wow factor for me. Wine prices were pretty punchy with not a whole lot of choice by the glass. Ended up with a £9 glass of Pinot noir. The main thing I didn’t like was that the female host was very pushy to the point of irritation. Constantly interrupting our conversation and trying to push more food and beverages on us. We finished with 15 minutes to spare before our allocated 1 hour 45 mins slot was up but I imagine if we hadn’t our charming host would have been asking us to vacate on the dot! Nice to try but I don’t think I will be returning any time soon. The hostess needs to relax on the OTT service.

Such a great experience! The food was OUTSTANDING! Everything we ate was delicious, the flavours were really fresh and the fact you could see the chefs preparing your food was really special! It felt very intimate and the service was impeccable. Our plates and cutlery were changed between dishes and our glasses constantly re-filled. The place is quite pricey, but totally worth it!

Simple food with a twist cooked beautifully.
It is evident that the ingredients are sourced with both providence and flavour and treated with the upmost respect.

The staff are very welcoming and attentive without intruding

My only complaint is that the dishes come up in very quick succession - they recommend you order 6/7 to share between two but by number 4, due to the speed the final dishes were not appreciated as much as they should have been

It is a hidden gem under a pub. Very small restaurant with only around 15 seatings. The Italian food is served with a high standard. My favourite dishes are the tomatoes salad, the beef tartar (with a special touch of oyster very good combination for your taste bud ) and the pan fried hake. It is difficult to describe in words. Food, experience and service are all in top notch.

Will definitely go back!

Myself and my sister had a wonderful time at Evelyn's Table! Its a lovely intimate space, with delicious food, great portion sizes and brilliant staff. Every dish we ordered was so tasty. Its pretty expensive, but so worth the money. A real treat for a special occasion. Would highly recommend!

Very very good food and nice experience. Too bad about the fixed end time though, causing us to being rushed out and missing out on desert. Good beginning and middle, disappointing ending (incl. bill of £168). Tip: book late table.

Great hidden spot for dinner in SoHo. The staff was great as was the food. Highlights included the Dairy Cow steak, the caprese w Basil sorbet, and the mackeral. There's also a cool, speak-easy style bar on the first floor in case you need a pre or post-dinner cocktail.

A totally unique experience for the food lover. Great intimate vibe. Sit at the counter it's the best. All Chefs work to high standards. Head chef the master of everything. Andrea was so attentive. Gave us some great recommendations for Sicily too. A memory forever of our time in London.

It was my husband’s birthday and this place was special. Intimate atmosphere, cosy, but comfortable, a total chef’s table experience. The service was food was incredibly tasty and delicious, with zero pretentiousness. The staff was very knowledgeable and went the extra mile to open the wine we wanted by the glass! A true gem, will be back definitely.
I already recommended to friends that are going next week.
Thank you!

For a restaurant that charges £30pp if you fail to turn up on time, it’s poor form to let you wait 25 minutes for a table and offer in return to cover the first round of drinks that includes a few half pints. Otherwise this place is fun, great food (be warned lots of salt), good service. Intimate so one for dates only.

On a positive side a very nice food. Feels more intimate than The Barbary or The Palomar. Having said that we left disappointed. We put our order an had our tomato salad served in about 10 minutes and then had to wait for good 20-30 minutes for the second dish. We literally had to say “we are hungry” to the waiter. There was a clear rush at the kitchen. We were seated at around 6pm at 7.40pm exact when we still had our desert in front of us, a manager asked us to free the table for next group of guests. We haven’t said a word and just asked for a bill. With £150 bill for two we felt really not welcomed. Great food but if you want to have a nice intimate dinner and not being pushed out of the door at your last spoon of pudding perhaps look for something else.

I would recommend Evelyn's table to a friend but only with the knowledge that they were happy to eat quick and get out! I appreciate the website mentions a 1:45 dining period but if the restaurant is going to keep this they need to ensure service is quick enough for diners to have time to enjoy all courses. We were rushed off our table before being able to order dessert. Push dining times to 2:15 and do it properly - Customers paying £50-80 a head deserve time to enjoy the ambiance and the food. Chefs, waiters and and food were awesome just think the set-up needs tweaking.
