The Gallery Restaurant is set at the back of the Ground Floor of Fortnum and Mason's with an open plan arrangement. The Service was excellent with attentive friendly staff, while the food was of good quality and well presented the Menu and Wine List were limited. Would recommend for a comfortable meal, close to Piccadilly and the areas many attractions including the Royal Academy opposite.

Our visit 20/2 was overall very good. However, a small mess up with our order meant we were waiting over 30 mins, what saved the day was a senior team member who apologised very quietly and confidently and gave us on the house a extra drink each. This mended the situation, so I thank you, The Gallery Team for looking after my mum and I on a special day! Thanks we will be back soon

On the occasion of my mother’s 91st birthday I booked a table in the restaurant. She has been a life long lover of Fortnums and has many happy memories of the store. The service was slow, and I had to ask twice for water as I was on medication.

The service was extremely slow. Not one member of the staff actually came to us , we had to stop them whilst they were serving or clearing tables for drinks, food and then the bill.

We had a table for 4 booked 15/2/20 at 12:15

We went for breakfast. I had Eggs royale which was very good but slightly disappointed there was no “full English” option. Coffee was in quite small cups.

A most enjoyable meal; good value, good service and the staff were very helpful in providing my wife with gluten-free items. It was our first visit; but it will not be our last. Thank you.

Just love going to Fortnum and Mason, amazing store with so many restaurants to choose from. My friend and I had lunch in the Gallery Restaurant to celebrate our birthdays. Great ambience, food was great. Service was good too. After lunch we were given a piece of cake with two candles with Happy Birthday written in chocolate. We thought that was a lovely touch.

The restaurant looks very tired.
Staff were over-zealous and tried to rush us into ordering. Food, which was ok, but nothing special, arrived with almost indecent haste. Drinks list was whipped away before we had time to choose and I had to ask for it back.
Having been asked several times if everything was all right we were thankfully then left alone. Getting the bill and paying it was tortuous. I was tempted to start walking out to see if that would provoke some action. I shall not be coming back.

Very nice food, in a relaxed setting, with very good service, offering very good value for money, in the heart of the West End. Super. Will be making this our regular venue for pre-opera/ballet/theatre dinner for our trips to London. Highly recommended.

The food was very good. The service to the table was acceptable but the drinks extremely slow... the initial beers were brought when we were mid way through the main course and the wine we had to ask for at the end of the main course.

We had a 3-course For The Love of Food on a Sunday lunchtime. Everything was perfect, with the only exception that we felt a bit too full at the end of the dessert. Other than that, it’s really good!

Had a lovely lunch, requested a table by the window, no trouble, absolutely charming staff. The two course set meal with wine was excellent value and our waiter was very helpful.

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.

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.
