A really buzzy restaurant with very friendly staff. Some of the service was a little slow but it wasn’t an issue for us on this occasion. The food was superb. Will definitely be returning and would highly recommend it.

Amazing service, food and ambience. Pre theatre meal for a birthday celebration and we stayed from 16.45-19.00... not many London restaurants would let you keep the table, especially when they’re queuing out the door! This is our third time to Fumo and already planning our next visit.

We always enjoy having lunch at Fumo. Alovely atmosphere and always good quality. We often go from there to the National Gallery which is very close. A lovely treat for a day out

Fantastic restaurant. The food was beautiful... From crispy croquettes and Arancini to the lobster ravioli which was perfection. Excellent service and works well for a larger group. I look forward to going back

I was extremely disappointed with the whole experience - the décor on first impression looked lovely & inviting, there was many staff milling around and we were shown to our table, myself & 3 friends they left us for ages & with the amount of staff there we still had to wave to someone for service. We ordered our drinks and waited a good long while before having to wave down another person, who quickly run through the menu very quickly it was very confusing with her accent she stated the dishes are sized between small & medium and therefore recommended ordering 2 dishes per person but at those prices I don't think so! - The dishes were indeed very small 2 of us ordered lamb cutlets they were served small on a little dish of peas and that was it ! so we ordered some side roast potatoes with onions which came up as really 'old' potato wedges without onions, again the food was given - and again we weren't asked if we wanted any condiments or sauces we did not see anyone again until we had to wave to someone for a drink - it was very tiresome and I was feeling really angry - when we eventually asked for the bill we asked them to remove the discretionary service charge on this £20.

This was not a good experience and it made our evening start on a sour footing - us group of friends look forward to a get together once or twice a year and we were very disappointed and left there still feeling hungry!- Thank god the show we saw was very good & made up for our disappointment,

We were repeatedly ignored by staff and twice had to leave our table to ask a waiter to serve us. This was a special family lunch that cost a LOT of money and frankly I was appalled and my wife was really upset.

Went specially to redeem OpenTable cheques. Checked quite a few restaurants before and ones that don’t accept them state this on their page, Fumo didn’t so I assumed they did. However was told at the restaurant that they don’t accept them and the same thing happened with another customer the day before.

Generally a great experience. Food was delicious. Wine was ok. Chef forgot our last plate so there was half an hour wait which made us late for our next appointment. However we dine at the Birmingham restaurant regularly and the food is of a very high standard. Tuna tartare my favourite.

Food was just right for a light pre-theatre lunch. The sea bass cooked in salt was especially moist and delicious. Service was excellent and very attentive, in particular dealing with my elderly mother and her walking frame; nothing was too much trouble.

Varied menu, something for everyone. Staff very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our lunch although everyone on our table thought it was quite expensive, particularly the vegetable/salad dishes. The sea bass was lovely and we enjoyed the poached pears for dessert. We would return but only for a special occasion.

A great eating experience - lots of delicious sharing dishes and excellent service. The set lunch menu was incredibly good value. Highly recommended dishes were the sea bass cooked in salt and the risotto with truffle. The atmosphere is comfortable whether at a busy lunchtime or the quiet period during the middle of the afternoon.

Great quality and great service but we left quite hungry after ordering 4 of the ‘tapas’ each so it would have been very pricey to leave full!

This was my second visit to Fumo and it is still as wonderful as the first visit. High quality and rich in flavour food, superb service and ambiance. I highly recommend this restaurant for all occasions.
