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.

Three of us were put on a table for two, which made it quite cramped. The restaurant wasn't that busy, so there were other larger tables. The service which is normally excellent was also below par. I mentioned this to the member of staff on reception and was underwhelmed by her response, implying that we should have made our desire for a bigger table known when we booked. How could I do this when I didn't know the table we were going to be allocated!

Some staff welcoming, some not so much. Was seated at table at the back at a vibrating bench seat so asked to move - they were ok about it but no apology re the vibration! Food nice but not exceptional - smoked salmon v good, dish of the day calves liver rather stringy, ice cream unexceptional. What I do love about it is that it seems authentically Austrian.

Food was as good as always but service was slow as it took over 5 minutes to get someone’s attention to take our order and unfortunately this happened again when trying to pay the bill. So we had to go to the counter. Normally staff are very attentive so I was slightly disappointed.

Fischer's never disappoints - love the food & the service is always friendly & efficient. Whilst I would generally not book a restaurant with a time limit I felt the manager handled the situation very well, gently reminding us that they were very busy & would need the table back though I do think that 2 hours is just too short to allow 4 people to enjoy dinner, much more realistic would be 2.5/3 hours.

Fischers is always consistent. Good service, good food, good wines, good ambience. Nearly all of the 'Austrian' dishes are genuinely constructed and delicious - my one quibble - WHY ON EARTH are the 'Wiener Wuerstl' Frankfurters made of BEEF not pork???????

Booked a table to celebrate my father's birthday. Really enjoyed the whole experience. The ambience was lively and fun. The food was beautifully plated and tasted delicious. The venue was very busy and at times there was a slight delay in the service but overall we felt that our waiter was attentive and looked after us well. We would thoroughly enjoy the experience.

I went to fischer’s with my family. The menu offers traditional austriac/german dishes. My girlfriend has caeliac disease and she loved the place because almost all the dishes were gluten free.
The ham was special and also the sausage with emmenthal...delicious. For dessert i had a vanilla cheesecake. It was home made...absolutely stunning.
The restaurant is very elegant and in a good position if you are visiting the centre of london but want escape from the crowd of oxford street. Very recommended

Food is incredible but the service really needs work. The attitude of most of the staff is very poor. Has not always been the case but it would seem the culture has taken a rather sharp dive.

Fischer’s is already a classic. The food is delicious. The service this time was somewhat hit and miss, perhaps sitting at the front of the restaurant is less favourable than further in were we have sat before and always had great service. Anyhow, will be back for the food and ambiance.

The food was very tasty - middle-European comfort-food in style. We shared chopped liver and a black pudding and apple dish for starters - both delicious. The Schnitzel was excellent, as was the Tafelspitz (classic Viennese braised beef), though the latter could have benefited from being served with more of the vegetables from the stock for the authentic Viennese experience.

The decor is perfect - just like an old Viennese cafe/restaurant. It's not cheap, but lived up to our expectations for a celebration.

We have been visiting Fischer's since it opened and have enjoyed many good meals there. After a break of about a year we returned today as we don't live locally any more. Our children were complimented on their good manners and behaviour but they like me were saddened by the meal we received. The veal chop was inedible but expensive so it went home to the dog (he is less fussy I guess) the fish was not fresh (tummy upset ensued) and service was not at all what we remembered. It borders on surly now and that is not worth travelling to London for. And £16 for a small glass of ok champagne? Really? A real shame as we had looked forward to this visit. The other members of our family ate at a local pub in Sussex at excatly the same time, had a great time and a bill for a quarter of that at Fischers. None of us ate dinner, they because they were still full, us because we don't feel well. Such a shame, it had been a really nice place. Goodbye Fischers's, we hope you can recover your past standards.

Owned by the same people as the Wolseley and offering a varied full day menu. Accent on Central European cuisine. The Schnitzels are enormous but then so were the desserts. Not cheap but good food and very attentive and friendly staff. Lots of babies among the clientele at lunchtime.

Fischers is a beautiful intimate restaurant. Done impeccably in Viennese 1930s style with absolutely no expense spared. ( The lovely mahogany & marble loos are a joy in themselves!)
The staff are charming, very friendly and the service is fast & efficient.
The food is delicious, featuring wonderful sausages or wurst or Wiener Schnitzel with sides of pickled cucumber or potato salad, sour kraut, or creamy mash etc. Lots of other goodies on the menu too.
It is one of our favourite restaurants in London. Much better, we think, than its sister restaurant The Delaunay, which is larger & suffers because of it. Plus you get the added joy of shopping the lovely shops in Marylebone High Street after lunch.

My friend and I were both absolutely amazed by the quality and taste of both foods and drinks we had.

The Schnitzel was cooked to perfection, and growing up in Germany with many visits to Vienna I know a perfect Schnitzel when I see one. ;-)) Chips were super crispy and the delicious cucumber salad gave a refreshing contribution. The cheesecake was simply a dream but what knocked out socks out was the authentic coffee served in a pot just like in Vienna or Germany. We got wonderful bread with paprika cluttered butter with compliments and the Grüner Veltliner (white wine from Austria) was wonderful.
Considering the prices you pay in London’s prime locations and postcodes, it felt like even more fun when the bill came with a rather friendly pricing. Especially for this outstanding quality. Will go over and over again and highly recommend.

Service was great but a little slow that’s why I gave only 4 stars to keep it real. But nothing to moan about really.

To summarise: amazing authentic Viennese dishes in an incredible interior served by friendly yet highly professional staff. As a cherry on top fairly priced.
