This was a family occasion, booked on-line. Having dined at F&M previously we were expectant of good service, calm atmosphere and very good food. At this early August date (2014), we were not disappointed! Selecting from the All-Day Menu at the Gallery Restaurant, we mostly chose fish dishes, Salmon, and, Plaice - the latter in particular was really well presented... More

Went there with my Father today for his 65th birthday, the staff were fabulous, food delicious and such a great ambience of people happily chatting, enjoying excellent service. Such a treat, would definitely recommend.

I went there two times and enjoy the atmosphere, a bit like Disneyland. There are a fair number of choices on the menu, some gluten-free. Tables are quickly crowded with plates, cups and glasses.

We walked in without a reservation for tea and ice cream. The attention to detail is superb. Everything is so pretty, the staff is friendly and its a fun break from the business of London. A landmark stop as you will see Fortnum and Mason all over London. You can buy the teas and jams at the airport and not... More

We use Fortnums a lot when we are in London. Afternoon tea in Gallery, breakfast in Fountains and light lunches in the 1707 bistro downstairs. My wife was on a "shop" so I went for a coffee in Gallery. It was virtually empty but I was initially shown an out of the way table but objected and got a decent... More

Is this the name for the Gallery Restaurant? Can't find it on this listing. Tables very close together. Service very slow - had to ask for mains twice (even though it was early when we got there) I think they forgot, had to ask for another glass of champagne THREE times. My food was average - veal was quite greasy... More

The food here is good. The ambience is average. The tables are so close together that you do feel uncomfortable.. Not somewhere I would choose for a special occasion. The ritz or roux at the landau are a much better option

A chance to have tea at Fortnum & Mason before an AGM in London - well for many this might be the norm - but for me it would be a first. A walk to the restaurant at the top of the building dampened my spirits when the lady told me to really appreciate it I would need 2 hours... More

Eating here is a haven of calm which ever restaurant you choose, I enjoy the breakfasts, outstanding food ,very varied choice and top notch service. The cost is average and less than you would expect. Afternoon teas are very very good ,cost wise comparable with some of the large hotels, just round the corner.
