Chef's table at "Marcus",[1] the Berkeley) in Knightsbridge

A chef's table is a table located in the kitchen of a restaurant,[2][3] reserved for VIPs and special guests.[4] Patrons may be served a themed[4] tasting menu prepared and served by the head chef. Restaurants can require a minimum party[5] and charge a higher flat fee.[6] Because of the demand on the kitchen's facilities, chef's tables are generally only available during off-peak times.[7]
