    We asked for the tuna steak to be medium rare however, it came out overcooked. When we kindly ask the waiter about getting it replaced she kindly took the tuna steak away. However, another waiter/duty manager came back with the tuna steak and asked abruptly “what’s wrong with this steak” we explained the issue of it being too well done. The waiter/duty manager started slicing it open and asked us to look at it closer. We explained again this isn’t medium rare and then he carried on standing their trying to make us feel guilty for sending it back and he kept justifying the tuna steak is not over cooked. At this point I was so disappointed that a waiter is stopping us from having a pleasant evening and our other items of food continue to get cold. In the end we had to show him a picture of how the tuna steak should of looked like. We also cancelled the alternative tuna steak and he was persuading us to order something else but at this point we were so embarrassed and wanted to leave. I’ve been to Fumo many times and this has to be the worst restaurant experience I’ve been through. The guilt and harassment we were made to feel was so bad and no apology in the end.

    Fantastic Restaurant, food was excellent and so was the service. We have been here many times, just a bit disappointed that we had to leave by 5.30pm our table was booked for 4pm on New Years Eve, we were hoping for a good 2hours and the website nor restaurant never told us you were closing early when booking which put an abrupt end to what was a lovely afternoon

    Enjoyed lunch here, food and table service were good and didn’t have to wait long to be served. As with those either side of us, we all ordered far too much food by being told to order 5-6 mini plates each, for lunch we’d have been happy with around half that. At least we know for next time.

    One of my fave places and first time in the Selfridges one. Fantastic as usual but service was disjointed with waiters spending lots of time talking to each other in Italian rather than serving. Think I will stick with the Fumo restaurant near the Ivy which was much more attentive. Food was amass always!

    Great lunch. Good choice and value for money. Enjoyed the pasta. Cheese board could have been better. Beautifully presented but only 2 different cheeses and bread was dry, no butter. Would definitely go back but pass on the cheese.

    This is our second time returning to Fumo. The first time was wonderful, food was delicious and our drinks came before our starter/mains. However this was not the same the second time. Our drinks came after our starters and we were rushed from start to finish at our table sitting. We do hope this is a one off, as we will be returning.

    It took a long time for waiters to take our order then no one checked it was all ok or came back to ask if more drinks were needed. Finally the bill when requested took 25 minutes to come after asking for it repeatedly. It’s a bit rich to then add a service charge !

    Staff were attentive but not overly. Nothing was too much trouble. My train had been cancelled so I had to make alternative arrangements and got there about 15 minutes later than booking. Straightaway I was asked if I wanted a drink They were happy to let me and my friends catch up before asking us what we wanted. Love this place. X

    A special day with my granddaughter,aged10. We were looked after by attentive staff,who explained the dining experience & helped in the choice of a soft drink mix & supplied a small dish of extra condiments especially for her. Food was excellent, 5 dishes & ice cream to finish, all beautifully presented. Memories made,big thanks to all at Fumo Selfridges.

    The place is excellent. The food is exceptional. That’s we return frequently. From visiting this restaurant,I now understand why the “special’s” menu is in fact called the specials menu. Top tier food. Recommend going and having many dishes. Don’t just go and order the pizza,you’re not doing yourself any favours.

    We were told restaurant was busy no table for three by the thin white female, as we did not have a reservation so we booked using open table, which gave us an opening in 10mins we went back to tell her but we’re told to wait until it was time! Despite that I waited, another group of girls came in without a reservation and the maitre D gave them a table before we were given one his reason oh yours is at 2pm so I will give them an available table!! So question is that is there no system or were we just profiled!! So huge thumbs down for the way we were treated. That lady should not be allowed near customers!

    In general we love coming to Fumo. The concept of smaller Italian dishes appeals, and the quality of the food doesn’t disappoint. The main courses are not as small as the impression I personally get from the menu. I had 3 but 2 would probably be enough. The food comes as and when it is ready, which doesn’t always work. We ordered garlic bread well before ordering anything else so that we could have that first, but it still didn’t arrive until after most of the main courses. Also my fries and my wife’s zucchini fries didn’t arrive until well after most of the main courses, which of course doesn’t really work. You want Your fries with the rest of the meal rather than afterwards. Finally, because of how the system works some of the food can be on the table quite a while before you get to eat it and therefore goes cold. A plate warmer on the table to keep food warm would be helpful. A lot Of this sounds negative, but they are minor niggles and we always enjoy a visit to Fumo

    Went to Fumo for my birthday with expectations of it being similar to San Carlo as the menus are the same and they’re sister restaurants. Upon getting there, we were told the kitchen closed at 6:45 which is extremely early in my opinion so the whole sitting down and ordering process was rushed. I ordered what I usually get at San Carlo, the truffle ravioli and it didn’t taste at all the same. I could barely taste any truffle and the portion size was tiny. I got 3 pieces of ravioli, more of a starter portion in my opinion. I wouldn’t go back.

    This is our fav restaurant at the mo. Staff are efficient and polite, but it gets v v busy so they are busy too. It's like tapas, but with awesome Italian food, 3 dishes each is usually about right, share the garlic bread of course. The restaurant is on floor 4 in selfridges so a nice view out into the shopping centre. Famous customer folk adorn the wall into the loos, what more could you possibly need, but the food should be even more famous!
