const cTable = require('console.table');
console.table([
  {
    name: 'foo',
    age: 10
  }, {
    name: 'bar',
    age: 20
  }
]);

// prints
name  age

foo   10

const table = cTable.getTable([
  {
    name: 'foo',
    age: 10
  }, {
    name: 'bar',
    age: 20
  }
]);

console.log(table);

Details

Uses easy-table for printing to console.log
If first argument is a string, and a second argument is an array, prints title row
console.table('Several objects', [...]);

Several objects
---------------
name  age
----  ---
foo   10
bar   20
baz   30

Printing array with column names

You can use the given column names when printing an array of arrays. For example,
var values = [
  ['max', 20],
  ['joe', 30]
];
console.table(['name', 'age'], values);

name  age
----  ---
max   20 
joe   30

If the titles is the first item in the array, just use slice
var values = [
    ['name', 'age'],
    ['max', 20],
    ['joe', 30]
]
console.table(values[0], values.slice(1));
