Description: Bevis Marks is a bustling kosher restaurant situated in the busy heart of the City of London. Beautifully modern, Bevis Marks is decorated with real taste, the understated, expensive looking d��cor just right for the typical clientele from the local financial institutions and offering a sophisticated setting for the more intimate of occasions. Head Chef Anthony Broster has a fine pedigree, bringing his food skills with him from no less than Smith���s of Smithfield and giving traditional British dishes and kosher classics a contemporary gourmet slant while maintaining all the beloved tradition of Jewish favourites. Interesting features like a non-dairy dessert list and a surprisingly varied and high quality (but still all kosher) wine list featuring the best of Israeli boutique vineyards, mark Bevis Marks as an exciting member of the City restaurant scene with something different to offer.

“Excellent fine dining food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2011

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Bevis Marks, the boss made us feel so welcome and the staff were very professional and helpful.
The food was on par with any non kosher fine dining restaurant and I also thought it was great value for money as the portions were of a good size.
The wine menu was very extensive for a kosher restaurant and so was the menu itself,there was something to suit everyone's taste.
I have been to many kosher restaurants around the world and this is by far one ofmthe top ones.
The restaurant also had a lovely calming ambience which was welcomed after a hard days work.

“Lovely decor and good food in an interesting corner of London.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011

My husband and I took relatives visiting from Canada to the restaurant for lunch.
It is in such an unusual setting. Entry is through a courtyard next to the oldest functioniing synagogue in the UK.
The decor is attractive with a lovely wooden grid ceiling through which you can see a glass roof and sky (rain in our case - well, it is the week of Wimbledon!)
The staff were welcoming and helpful. In particular the manager was very friendly and attentive.
A few items had run out but there were replacements e.g. butternut soup instead of another variety. Our relatives said the soup was delicious.
I enjoyed the lamb chops - tender and full of flavour. Others had samon, mackerel and bream respectively, and all were declared excellent. To summarize, the food is very good.
I have to say we thought it was overpriced but that's a general criticism of good restaurant food in England.
One disappointment - we had hoped to visit the ancient synagogue to which the restaurant is attached, but it had closed early - a great pity for our guests.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for good kosher food in London.

“Very disappappointing and overpriced experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2010

I went to Bevis Marks with a group of friends for a friends birthday. It was our friends choice so we just went along with it on his recommendations.

When we walked in there was no atmosphere which is how it was through most of the evening. When we were given the menus we noticed that the prices online were not the same as those on the menu which was misleading.

The service was quick and within about 10 minutes of ordering our starters they were served. The majority went for chicken soup which was a disgraceful portion for the price and tasted of nothing. Two of us shared the 'beef carpaccio' which was more like rare roast beef sliced as thin as possible with some rocket.

With the mains the majority of us went with steak which looked very good and at £24.95 for 'prime rib eye' you would think would melt like butter however this was not the case, even the rare ones were like leather.. Kosher meat does not have as many good cuts like non kosher however if the majority of the cheaper end of kosher can get it right then one would think that at that price it would be Michelin Starred.

Two people ordered the Thai Salad from the starters as the main and if thats what they call Thai food its an insult, deep fried salt beef mushed with beansprouts covered in sweet chilli sauce at £18 is a joke.

We thought it best not to order dessert as goodness know what we would have got and when the bill came at an astronomical £400 for just about two courses and one soft drink each I think it is fair to see that this was completely over rated, over priced and would not be recommending it nor going back ever again.
