Austrian
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.

Nice place for a relaxed lunch.its not fine dining but it is enjoyable and I would definitely use again. The salmon starter is a bit small for the cost but the mains are fine.
Probably opt for main and dessert as they looked good as never manage 3 courses.

Lunch with friends at bustling Fischers. Very pleasant welcome & shown to table quickly. Waiter a little slow but once on the case pretty good, except for mishearing one of our orders. This was quickly replaced (for free) by him once pointed out.
I always love the Viennese fin du siecle decor, mahogany panelled & marble individual loos, and delicious schnitzels or sausages.
Great location for post lunch shopping in the Marylebone High St boutiques.

I love the ambiance and the feel of being in one of those famous Viennese restaurants. I also love the food. simple dishes which you cannot find in other restaurants like the chicken noodle soup, and of course the famous Vienerze schnitzel.

Usually Fischer’s is one of our neighborhood restaurants that consistently delivers on food and service. This time we experience really bad service - they forgot to give us the bread basked you get at the start (so we had to ask for it). It took forever before we got to make our order (I had to make eye contact with the waiter several times) and when asking for condiments they gave the wrong ones. Quite annoying. Food was really good though, just wish the service wouldn’t bring down the overall experience.

Can recommend the beetroot and chopped herring- a very tasty little starter ,and the dessert of fruit in mulled wine.My husband praised the Schnitzel and the crumble for dessert.Restaurant has a great atmosphere and is rather beautiful with lovely wood panelling.However it felt very warm indeed.

Somehow not quite as good as the Delaunay for breakfast. Specific eggs orders kind of ignored by waiter or kitchen. Coffee order allowed to go cold on counter cos waiting staff were too busy or short staffed.
Food generally quite nice. Staff friendly.

Good to discover Viennese food. The waitress was helpful with the menu. However it is very noisy, difficult to hear each other. The cocktails are not the best...

Table wedged between two competing noises: rather loud business on one side and slightly eccentric laptop user who talked to herself . Service was attentive but slow and lots of signalling went on to get attention which when it arrived was, of course, very good.
Perhaps one should aim to eat at a less busy time than 1pm.
The Bloody Marys are the best in town.

It’s great. Food is delicious, service is efficient but depending on your waiter it can be a warm or cold reception. It’s busy so I guess the stress levels are high. However, we keep coming back as overall it is great!

I've eaten at Fischers a few times, but it's very unlikely I'll return. The food remains very good, but the service was atrocious. With so many fantastic restaurants in London, I'll stick to places that actually take care of their customers.

Good food, a pretty locus, but the service was slow. 30 minute wait for a cappuccino and when questioned about it was told the wait was deliberate. It wasn’t. Essentially getting the attention of the staff was difficult and they seemed to be setting up for lunchtime. I would go again. I just think I had a waiter who was both tired and had got up on the wrong side of bed.

having eaten here before i was surprised that things were not as great but my food was good just the portion of goulash was quite small. the trio of salmon portion was quite small. i confess both were delicious. one of the party ordered the grilled chicken which had to be returned as it was under cooked with blood by the bone. they prepared a new one quite quickly but it was still under cooked although better. the chicken schnitzel was excellent and enormous so it all depends what you order!
