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.

Always good food, though service can be patchy in quieter times and the kitchen in the mornings can be slow.

Once again we had a lovely evening at Fischers in Marylebone High Street. It's beautiful 19th/early 20th C Viennese decor is warm & so is the front of house welcome.
Service is friendly & fast without being rushed.
Specialities like the nuenberger & kraisenkaiser (?) sausages or the delicious schnitzels (chicken or veal) are the menu staples, but there is usually a special or two which are often fish.
Unpretensious, but luxurious in one of my favourite shopping streets.
Heartily reccomended! Go to Fischers.

This is one of our favorite restruants and although it is on the expensive side we do believe you do get value for money . The staff are very friendly and attentive .
Unusually on this occasions our vegtables were not hot but the rest of the meals were excellent .

Loved Fischers - went with my friends, one of whom has been many times. The food was excellent and the service really welcoming - our first waiter especially was great. This is my new favourite London restaurant, especially at this time of year, cosier than The Delaunay or The Wolseley. Schnitzel, salmon, herrings, beetroot, strudel - what’s not to like. I will be back!!

Food is great and the portions are quite big. Staff is also very friendly.
The atmophere in the restaurant is very nice.
Prices of the food are normal, wines and other alcohol are a bit expensive though I think that's just London...

Only bad point was that we had to wait almost 20mins for our coffee after it was ordered. When we got it the coffee was therefore already a bit cold. But when we told the staff afterwards they apologized and removed the dessert from the bill, which was very kind.
Overall I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We have enjoyed Fischers before, but maybe pre-Christmas is just the wrong time to go. It's a lovely place , the host is welcoming, the menu is great and the wine is always good. However, the service was wretchedly slow because there were simply not enough staff to cope. They never seemed to stop but neither did they have time to respond to requests. As a consequence the service timing was erratic, particularly in following up on missing items including cutlery.

Two of us thought the food was excellent, but two thought it did not match expectations from previous visits.

The moral is: watch the calendar and time your visit accordingly.

What a lovely find! At the top end of buzzy Marylebone High Street this lovely Viennese cafe is cosy and friendly. The menu has a scandi feel and we had some of the smorgasbords and snacks followed by a crab salad that contained no crab! When this was pointed out it was quickly rectified with I think an extra large portion. Charming!

Fischers is a good choice for breakfast and dinner. Wiener Schnitzel and Schnitzel Holstein came promptly and were tasty. We were recommended to have the sauce on the side and the cauliflower and spetzel sides were also good.

We had a great evening, It was a first time for our young adult daughters and it was a great success with them. They loved the cosy atmosphere, smart but not too formal. We all enjoyed the god "mideuropean" style food including the lovely desserts. Service is efficient and discreet. Only possible criticism is that our table was in the first part of the restaurant (slightly quieter which is nice) not so far from the entrance door and cold air reached us when people were getting in and out of the restaurant. It was a cold night but this is also a restaurant where you love going during the winter season. They might consider going the full Viennese way with a heavy curtain behind the second set of doors to further protect customers.

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.
