Most enjoyable and relaxing atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle. Friendly and professional service, lovely wine and delicious food. The portions of the dishes we ordered could have been a touch bigger, hence the value for money not scoring higher but on the whole it was lovely. I would definitely return, especially to enjoy one of the wine flights.
We love coming to Fortnum and Mason before our summer exhibition visit. Not been to the wine bar before, still the same excellent food and great service. Just with a more intimate ambience and exciting selection of wine.
Fortnum and Mason Wine Bar is always fabulous and this visit was no different. Particularly love the lobster bridge rolls and the rarebit. Perfect venue for a pre theatre lunch.
It's not insanely expensive not cheap but the name over the door is a factor.
The setting is the wine cellar surrounded by bar seats then tables further out. I thought it was smart-casual with a strong hint towards quiet conversation or small groups getting together.
I was able to sample several wines I saw on the menu that I consider unusual e.g. white Bordeaux or one derived from grapes actually grown on Mt Etna............a decent amount for a proper taste with an explanation of what flavours should be notable.
Food is more European-style tapas to stave off the booze - post-England match or Pride, that's a good thing. The Scotch egg with piccalilli was tasty but a bit dry so the wine was a necessity! It's a shame the kitchen couldn't be certain foods were gluten-free so my friend, on past experience, chose to risk the cured meats - no fallout!
The menu changes so will go back
Perfect place for a spot of lunch on a hot day in London! Three of us had lunch here on a very hot day and it was very nice, cool and quiet. We shared a few plates and they were all nice, along with some lovely rosé wine. Would recommend if you want somewhere a bit out of the hustle and bustle.
Wonderful for a first anniversary
Top list of wines
Usually the highlight of our trip to London but extremely disappointing this visit....the staff were poor & v inattentive, the wine was excessively over priced & poor....I doubt we’ll bother going back until the raise their standards back to where they were
The tables in the entrance or middle are preferable to the ones near the kitchen as half the party will be staring at a plain wall. The wine list is lovely and varied, highly recommended.
A great place to get together with an old friend. No pressure to rush and get out. Good atmosphere and service.
Love the wine flights and cheese plates A great hidden gem in Fortnum and Mason
A lovely setting for a Sunday afternoon drinks and nibbles. The wait staff were very polite, efficient, and unobtrusive. Great people-watching too. The wine selection is -- as expected -- excellent and the food menu was varied and catered to a range of tastes. The fresh asparagus and avocado salad was delicious (and perfect in its serving size) as was the mozzarella arenciata. Highly recommended.
Excellent hidden gem within Fortnum&Mason Piccadilly
Despite them being short staffed and very busy, those who served us were attentive and the food and wine great.
Charming service and an extensive list of wines - all available by the glass. This is a wonderful quiet little bolt-hole away from the hassle of London.
We took my niece for her birthday and everyone loved it! Ordered a bottle of F&M Rose along with the charcuterie & cheese platter. The food was plentiful for three people, and the wine was lovely. The experience was excellent value for money, given the upscale environment. I'd come back again - for another special occasion or a glass of wine and a snack after a hard day's shopping! I'm happy to say this iconic London treasure is upholding its high standards.
Have loved this venue for a while now.. never disappoints. Food and menu are brilliantly paired. The staff are unfailingly attentive but not intrusive. Looking forward to a return visit.
Thoroughly enjoyed the champagne and cheese board. Delicious!
Always a great experience. Staff so friendly. Food good. Wine flights excellent.
Calm, attentive, good quality food and wine,reliable,excellent location, attractive but no fuss decoration. My favourite spot for lunch when in London.
Love this place. I enjoy the relaxed vibe and great food, especially the daily cheese board.
Nice atmospheric and classy basement bar - not easy to get that right inside a department store - with a short but varied menu if you want to eat and good and accessible wine list. Friendly and efficient service. Shuts at 8.30 but ideal for post-shopping, visiting Royal Academy or just meeting up.
Terrible experience. After we were seated we were informed that we had 45 minutes to order, eat & vacate the table as they had a private party to attend to. The portions were meager, prices ridiculously high, food quality passible.
Nice staff. Wines really well overpriced in my view for what you get however I am clearly aware these are London priced. Hence why I rate as "average" i.e. nothing was exceptional.
Elegant atmosphere, tantalising cocktails, beautifully crafted food and excellent service in this secluded, west end gem.
Great service - staff were excellent as usual and the food was great
Good little pre theatre spot. Great wine list and good service.
Always a good spot to meet after work for a decent glass of wine and tapas. Attentive and welcoming staff.
The Wine Bar on the lower ground of Fortnum’s is quite a find. Great atmosphere, good wine list and very nice food. The trio of salmons was delicious.
An oasis in the madness of busy London. Surprised my guest with birthday cake and drink without having to request it. Wonderful!
Service was attentive but not at all pushy. The bar was busy but it wasn’t noisy and we still had room. I would book again.
It's always good at the F&M wine bar. Tasty food, excellent wine list and good service. Recommended.
Too noisy and watch out for leftover alcohol. We had more than half of the bottle £100+ not finished and they said we drunk it all, I had to insist to show me bottle and in fact it was more than a half of the bottle left . Not good for F&M
Our second visit in December. The food was very good, served promptly by friendly serving staff.
We were however on the second visit disappointed with the wine service. On our first visit the waiting staff were observant refreshing our water and wine glasses. This did not happen on our second visit although tables near by were provided with this service.
Area very small. Seating cramped. Often overbooked or at least tables not vacated quick enough for bookings taken. Wines good. Food little above average. Service pleasant.
Was incredibly busy however the staff made no effort whatsoever to serve us even after we had to wave the waiter down after sitting for 10 mins he said he would be with us in a moment and carried on working at the door for a further 10 or so mins to the point we were about to leave . I understand that it is a busy time of year but in that case there should be more wait staff on the floor. We were very dissapointed as I normally have a nice time at this bar and now I am not sure I will return.
Just wanted a light lunch and here was ideal. Plenty of choice for food and a good selection of wine available.
We always enjoy the food and wine and especially the ambiance. Then we can shop!!
Staff as usual very polite, friendly and knowledgeable
Great selection of premium wines by the glass and bottle with good food selection to match
Great location with lovely food and bubbles. One of the best burgers I have had - highly recommended and will be returning.
