A very nice place for a relaxing classy afternoon lunch or tea. We have the large plate of Smoked Scottish salmon and it was more than enough for the two of us. But then, we weren’t starving. That with a couple glasses of British Champagne and we were set for a walk in the park!

Lovely venue and convenient for transport. Not good that the two wines we ordered were unavailable so had to choose another. Also, no fresh fruit available for pudding for me as I am unable to eat anything that has sugar added to it. As the basement sells fruit and veg, it can’t be too difficult to get a banana and chop it up and top it with a blob of cream.

A relaxed and informal restaurant but somehow you are always conscious that this is fortnums and so, just a little bit special, as a day tourist. The food was well seasoned, the lamb ,steak and cod all delicious, service friendly and attentive.

F&M has become a tourist trap. The wait staff doesn't understand English and the prices are outrageous. The menu had a lunch main course of asparagus and I asked the waiter if it was white asparagus and he said "yes". The plate came and it was 6 spears of GREEN asparagus! At current exchange rates that was $2.50 PER SPEAR. F&M used to be a nice place (and the tea is still the best) but otherwise it is to be avoided as yet another London tourist trap.

I visit London on a regular basis and always book to have breakfast in Fortnum and Mason, usually with a glass of champagne. This was no different, it was so good I had tea there later in the afternoon after a days shopping. I have never been disappointed and will be back there in 3 weeks time.

When we arrived - having booked a table in advance of course - it wasn't ready and we just had to stand there - there's nowhere to sit - while we waited for a table. It was so embarrassing - too embarrassing for me to risk bringing clients to The Gallery again.

Fortnum & Mason's Gallery restaurant is my restaurant of choice for lunch. Easy to book - attentive service and good food with plenty of choice.

I always recommend it to my friends from out of town.

Disappointed. I had high expectations of the rarebit & though it was high quality and tasty, at £9.75 for cheese on toast I expected 2 slices but only got one. The bread was thin sliced & flat, not the malty doorstop I hoped for. The tea was delicious (English Breakfast) but a little late served after the food arrived and lukewarm. I was still pretty hungry when I left. Shan’t book here again.

Lovely setting with delicious and beautifully fresh food. Perfect for a girly lunch with my mum. Ask for a table at the window as this has great views and a little quieter, away from the shop floor.

While it is busy during afternoon tea there are plenty of lunch items to chose from.
Of course the tea and scones are a major draw.

Very disappointed by poor staff attention. It was not busy in restaurant, but many staff were there but walking around with their heads in the air. Also the House Salade that I had with my toasted sandwich was just 2 mouthfuls of chopped up lettuce for £4.25 - very poor. Scones, jam and cream were very good - after along wait after our sandwiches

Everything you would expect from Fortnum's. Service was discreet but attentive and the main course was faultless...carrot cake was a bit disppointly dry. It was well priced and we were not hurried. I would certainly recommend it for a civilized lunch.

I thought the lunch menu offered a very small choice and a not very good choice. My portion was very small and was very expensive. The crumble dessert was ok - a bit tasteless and the custard was quite cold and too runny. It is just not what it used to be like - I won't be going again.

My friend had fish and chips which were pricey at c £20 but the fish was dry and she left half of it. My starter of Devon crab with avocado was minuscule at £15 so overall not good value for money .
I did enjoy the vegetarian risotto though and would definitely recommend that.
