We were given a window table which was very nice and the Welsh rarebit and salad,which came quickly was delicious. The Sancerre we drank was very good indeed and we finished our meal with a chestnut tart. Will be going again as it is a very pleasant place in which to have lunch!

I met a friend for a special Birthday lunch at the Gallery Restaurant. We both had the fillet of brill and it was absolutely delicious. The champagne and wine we had were excellent too. Great, friendly service in a lovely atmosphere.

They could more on the plate on some of the dishes. Maybe some background music. Staff were lovely and friendly as well as professional.

Love everything here especially desserts. We got there at noon before the rush and got seated right away. Scotch eggs are absolutely delicious here! Highly recommended.

We come to F&M every year and usually have a table for 7/9 for two consecutive lunches- last year I complained and got no response, this year we tried again- cold soup, dire service and terrible attitude- we cancelled the table for the second day and went elsewhere. Our local restaurant at home gives better service. We will not be back unless things change- I did this survey last year and you didn’t reply so I am not holding my breath. A real disappointment- will let friends know

The three of us found the service presentation and food quality of a very high standard, and we certainly are also thinking the fish & chips looks great , be back again, must mention 3 course menu looks fair value,
the only tiny whinge was with the smoke salmon choice initself great but very tiny portions of sourdour bread to balance the salmon.

For me you can't beat the buck rabit. thank you and lets all enjoy 2020.

Excellent food as always at quite a reasonable price. Very delicious artichoke soup with truffle that is to die for. Top notch service. Only fault is that it is very busy and crowded due to popularity so would recommend reserving in advance.

We had only a main course, that was the plan. but also an aperitive.. the apero came quite late, the food quick + together a bottle of wine. Not perfectly organised so in the end we decided to take another course cause we still had this bottle of wine. Could be a bit better. but we enjoyed it anyhow

Food quality far from justifying the prices. Service fairly impersonal. Sitting can be nice if you sit by the windows. All in all a disappointing experience.

Great place for afternoon tea (as well as more formal lunches). It was nice to be able to have with that a warm dish or two. The smoked salmon was delicious, as was, I'm reliably informed the rarebit. All simple but presented well by knowledgeable waiting staff. One can actually have a conversation without actually hearing that of people on adjoining tables such is the ambience.
One never feels one is waiting too long to be seated, attended to by a waiter taking one's order or served food and drink. There never seems to be an urge to get your table vacated for the next diners; all so effortlessly seamless.
Finally, it's never as expensive as one might imagine, or maybe that's because Fortnum And Mason's is such good value and a great experience, hopefully not for the first and only time.
I look forward to the next time.

The food was very disappointing. Apart from the crab starter which was delicious, the smoked salmon starter for the money was poor. The taste wasn't exceptional & the amount of salmon for the money wasn't good. The Bellini for £13.50 I was given just half a champagne glass full & the restaurant itself was average, now wow factor.

Lovely location ambience and good service. However the venison pies were dry (why we were served spoons when they were clearly not needed and no garnish or any attempt to dress the dishes were missing.

The food was tasty. Only 2 bemols were we were told on arrival that the kitchen was closing at the exact time of the booking, so we had to order in a rush. Our menu included mince pies and what we got was one mince pie cut in half to share between the two of us. That was weird. The decor and ambiance were very average. All in all, I know better places to spend what we did. It's a shame, because the food was indeed very good, but let down by the organisation and management.

Would not visit this restaurant so close to Christmas again. Far too busy and very noisy to have a conversation. Also not enough staff to cover this busy period.
