Neighbourhood favourite, Fischer’s, is an informal café-restaurant found at the top of Marylebone High Street. Warmly evocative of Vienna in the early twentieth century, Fischer’s is buzzing from breakfast through until late, seven days a week. A classic Viennese menu is offered, including an extensive choice of salads, schnitzels, brötchen, strudels, konditorei, biscuits, ice cream coupes and hot chocolates. With Austrian neighbourhood charm, the food utilises simple but high quality ingredients, immaculately presented.

Table wedged between two competing noises: rather loud business on one side and slightly eccentric laptop user who talked to herself . Service was attentive but slow and lots of signalling went on to get attention which when it arrived was, of course, very good.
Perhaps one should aim to eat at a less busy time than 1pm.
The Bloody Marys are the best in town.

I've eaten at Fischers a few times, but it's very unlikely I'll return. The food remains very good, but the service was atrocious. With so many fantastic restaurants in London, I'll stick to places that actually take care of their customers.

Good food, a pretty locus, but the service was slow. 30 minute wait for a cappuccino and when questioned about it was told the wait was deliberate. It wasn’t. Essentially getting the attention of the staff was difficult and they seemed to be setting up for lunchtime. I would go again. I just think I had a waiter who was both tired and had got up on the wrong side of bed.

having eaten here before i was surprised that things were not as great but my food was good just the portion of goulash was quite small. the trio of salmon portion was quite small. i confess both were delicious. one of the party ordered the grilled chicken which had to be returned as it was under cooked with blood by the bone. they prepared a new one quite quickly but it was still under cooked although better. the chicken schnitzel was excellent and enormous so it all depends what you order!

Never disappointing. Service is impeccable and, of course, the schnitzel and the jus Parisienne are always the stars. I’ll keep coming back!

TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE.
I used to love this restaurant, it's beautiful and the food is great.
I'm not sure when they started doing this but now they take away the bottles of wine after serving you. The waited confused our bottle with someone else's and pretended our bottle was finished (by showing proof of someone else's empty bottle). The way they responded to this was simply rude when they clearly were the ones to make the mistake.
And to finish up, they embarrassed my friend by asking her to show proof of the identification when paying with her credit card. WHAT RESTAURANT DOES THIS? Specially considering it's supposed to be a "chic" one.

Buzzy Central European brasserie. Extensive menu . When busy can be noisy,but we had asked for a quiet table and we got one. Not cheap but worth it.

Ooh I love Fischer’s. It’s hard to believe it hasn’t been open for 50 years as the decor cleverly gives it a sense of a history and an authentic of a mittel European cafe. The food is a mix of Austrian, Scandinavian and Alsatian food. I had the chopped liver which was wonderful and a large portion. They also have all day brunch options. Service is attentive and friendly and it was all washed down with a bottle of gruner veltliner which was wonderful. Great spot on Marylebone High Street.

The chicken schnitzel seemed to be battered not breaded & was chewy & tasteless.
The waiter was sullen & disinterested & made us feel unwelcome .
The high price did not reflect the quality of the food or the service

The food is extremely good at Fischers. Combine that with a relaxing, warm, brasserie-esque atmosphere and a few cocktails and you are good to go.
