Great service by our waiter his last name was something like Cheinal or cheval?
As my daughter was poorly and he tended to us with respect and even gif the cake and happy birthday on plate bit too x thanks so much !!
I’ve obviously romanticised our last visit to F&M but this visit to the restaurant was pretty mediocre. Poor service and even poorer value for money all set in the environment reminiscent of a National Trust cafeteria- and that’s not a compliment.
The service was shockingly slow and indifferent. We had to leave the table to ask the waiter to bring the cake he promised to bring immediately 10 minutes earlier. No hot water to top up the teapot. The couple on the table next to us were about to leave as they had been ignored- I asked a waiter to serve them. They were on holiday from New Zealand and had looked forward to tea at Fortnums.
Truly disgraceful that 12.5% service was added to the bill for perhaps the worst afternoon tea experience in London.
A great place to lunch en route to the Royal Academy. Excellent food and service.
Elegant, friendly, the staff is very professional and the food never disappoints. I recommend F&M to all my friends who go to London for a special brunch or lunch.
Staff need much , much more training in house , they seem to lack even basic skills and knowledge .
I haven't been to F&M for several years and the last time it felt rather ordinary. I now have two small children and decided that for my wife's birthday it was worth a try - hoping that the children behaved or at least the noise level would drown it out. I was not sure what the food was going to be like expecting a slightly better than tourist level.
I was wrong - the food was very good and the taste was authentic. In fact everything for us on the day turned out very well in deed.
We have dined at F&M in the past but never in this restaurant.
We had an excellent experience and a great time and look forward to returning when next in London.
Staff were very engaging and food excellent.
Abysmal service - it took nearly 2 hours for a sandwich and a scone! We asked four or five times for the same thing, trying different waiters, all to no avail. They weren’t even that busy! And totally inflexible on any changes to make things vegetarian, etc - it turns out everything is pre-made. Waste of time and money.
I like the way the restaurant isn’t overwhelmingly posh yet the food is excellent.
A lovely and relaxed venue, perfect for a special occasion.
J ai été très déçue. La vaisselle a changé et est très moche et commune, la salle ultra bruyante, la carte a augmenté en tarif et lz quantité n y est pas. Decue alors que j y venais chaque année auparavant...
Reasonable lunch in a convenient site. Too much salt in some of the dishes however.
The Welsh rarebit is to die for.
Lovely staff providing excellent service.
Delicious smoked salmon served quickly by friendly and professional staff. Relaxed ambience, although exclusive.
Our party had a very poor experience of service and food.
The lack of vegan option was down to avocado toast and the portions were somehow unbalanced - massive eggs Benedictine dish and tinny rarebit.
The weather forecast said rain and dull; I had a friend visiting from Europe; I thought where the best place to eat Breakfast. The Gallery at Fortnum and Mason. I was not disappointed. The menu is varied and I had the Highland Breakfast (Scrambled Egg, Toast and Scottish smoked salmon and my friend, Eggs Benedict. They were delicious. The quietness of the Gallery on a wet Tuesday morning is a gift during the beginning of the holiday season. The service is always exemplary and Tuesday was no exception. The waiting staff are attentive and yet discreet . We both echoed this was a brilliant beginning to our Tuesday morning.
Food is amazing, service excellent but does tend to leave a large whole in your bank account . Don't go there very often but when we do it is wonderful.
Great attentive service, prompt food delivery ....
I advised on booking it was my wife’s birthday and asked for a window table, it didn’t happen. The menu is really poor, very restricted. We have dined here always at lunch 6-7 times this is the worst experience and we will not be back.
Sunday afternoon Very nice classic everyday 3 course meal, starter of dressed crab main of beef roast dinner and dessert knickerbocker glory all served and presented by professional staff
I visit this restaurant regularly and are never disappointed, sometimes twice a day and have breakfast and afternoon tea. Have been known to have Elegant Rarebit with a glass of rose champagne on Thursday mornings when I make a quick visit to London. The food and staff are wonderful, the standard is very high.
Sunday lunch is incredible, highly recommended.
We were seated right away and our food arrived in short order. It was a nice lunch. We had the pasta of the day (ravioli stuffed with spinach and cheese) and fish and chips. The mashed peas had a delightful hint of mint. Nice lunch!
Had booking for table at 2pm, it was very busy & our greeting lacked the warmth we have come to expect. Later found out short staffed & table staff & manager were lovely. Whilst not our usual 5/5 despite as a result food excellent and will return.
Situated overlooking the busy ground floor the Gallery restaurant provides a little welcome respite from the busy shopping experience. As I overhead one tourist saying 'the menu is very British...' - but then what else might you expect. It runs a full gamut of interesting starters, welsh rarebit, smoked salmon, up to more hearty offerings of fish and chips, steaks etc. The menu is flexible allowing brunch/lunch or indeed tea from 11.30am. I had a welsh rarebit followed by scones under the official headline of 'tea'. Yum. Staff are ever-present and will replenish tea pots with ease. Considering the location and the quality (lovely soft scones) prices are perfectly reasonable (service included).
Lovely, friendly staff. Potatoes were a touch salty!
Great place for late afternoon lunch. Friendly staff with exceptional service. Great menu for full lunch, afternoon tea or light snack. Grilled place was fantastic. And the Welsh rarebit a must.
The Gallery is an institution.
Always delivers on quality and everything quintessentially English.
It's a must do visit if in the area. Nothing beats it for atmosphere and you are very well looked after.
Our favourite fun lunch the famous Welsh rarebit with a glass of champagne and it’s still delicious I am pleased to say. The staff were delightful and helpful . However, there was quite a long wait between courses which did not mar the experience but does mean it’s not outstanding. Certainly wouldn’t stop us from going again.
As always, the must-visit place on every London trip. Afternoon tea here is a delight!
A very good Sunday lunch time experience for myself and four girlfriends. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was very good and well presented. I would recommend The gallery as the menu has a broad appeal and the service was very good. A 12.5% service charge is added to the bill but the service was good from start to finish. 👍🏻☺️
Really enjoyed the experience nice location very quick service good value for money. I had fish and chips this was done to an excellent standard and it was nice to have fresh fish instead of frozen
An early breakfast mid-week with enough time to enjoy the experience. Exactly as expected; simple but high quality food, good service, a relaxed not over-formal environment, pricey but no more than the rest of Piccadilly.
A reasonable choice of food and drink, though personally I would have welcomed a black pudding option for the scrambled eggs, as an alternative to salmon.
Fortnum and Mason is the ideal stop off for tea and cake or afternoon tea, when you are in London
I asked for table water which was lukewarm. Waiter eventually came to refill but was only able to give me half a glass of water before jug ran dry and he did not bother coming back. We had asked for extra soda bread and had to ask again before we were given 3 thin triangles! No one asked how if we were enjoying our meal and I had to ask for coffee and then asked twice for bill. I was disappointed in service.
Perfect for any time of day. The Fish of the day was amazing,The Deserts a delight. Always visit the Gallery Fortnum and Mason know how to do food!!
Great service, great food.
Poor and rather arrogant service .. and, at these prices, I don't expect to have to flag down a waiter.
It took a while to even be acknowledged and take us to our table, and then longer still to get the attention of someone to take our orders.
The food was mediocre at best, I ordered Welsh rarebit which I have had numerous times at F&M and know how good it used to be, this time I had to struggle to cut the bread, seemed like been prepared and reheated, tough and not something I would recommend. It seemed the restaurant manager did not enjoy his job, service with smile from him or any of the other serving staff was certainly not in their job description.
I have enjoyed wonderful food and service at Gallery many times before but will not be going there again. I was also not the only customer who were not enjoying the experience as the table next to us had a struggle getting their orders right
Extremely disappointing and not what F&M experience one expect at the price they charge
