Fischer's 22

Squaremeal Review of Fischer's ?

Oh, Vienna: Corbin and King’s grand café has one misty-eyed for the city of cafés and giant schnitzels without ever leaving Marylebone. It’s not so much the food, though that’s a cold-weather dream: neat rye sourdough brötchen lined with beetroot and herring, followed by braised beef tafelspitz or pan-fried duck liver with grapes and redcurrants piled onto crisp rösti. It’s more the cumulative effect of the smart staff, low lights, leather accents, copious taxidermy and gorgeous views. This is a comfortable, well-padded kind of seduction, complete with cake plates brought to the table for you to choose from (go for the classic Sachertorte), and silver coupes filled with nutty ice cream. Mid-European wines are a feature, but so is coffee and a biscuit. We love it, although one disappointed punter thinks that Fischer’s needs to “up its game”, with the Ivy Café now grabbing headlines (and customers) on Marylebone High Street.

Average - nowhere near as good as its siblings

Sep 2016

We were in Marylebone High St, and are great fans of the Delaunay, so thought we would give its "little sister" a try. We were quite disappointed. We didn't find the food or the service up to nearly the same standards.

Not as good as before

by   platinum reviewer (86)

Jan 2016

Editor's pick We had brunch here yesterday (which I have always preferred to the lunch and evening menus), but something was different this time. I had my "usual" - crispy bacon and fried egg roll and my husband had the rosti, black pudding and poached egg (with a side of bacon). Now considering it very clearly states "crispy" bacon, you would expect that but for some reason half of the bacon in the roll was crispy and the rest was barely cooked, same for the side of bacon that my husband...

Prussian chic

by   (2)

May 2015

We stumbled on this restaurant quite by chance. 5 minutes late for breakfast, the haughty welcome girl gave us the cold "you're not really our type of guest" look - water off a duck's back! The waitress was extremely nice and friendly though - east european so fitted in marvellously. The ambience is very Prussian, wood panelling, loads of photos everywhere. Very fin de siecle. The herring was to die for and the bread was fantastic, sausages and sauerkraut was really authentic as...

Schnitzler in Marylebone

by   silver reviewer (26)

Mar 2015

Those of romantic nature may now leap back a hundred years and spend an hour or two in Schnitzler's Vienna. Corbin & King, who have brought us The Wolseley, The Delaunay and others have now opened Fischer's in Marylebone High Street and, although the interiors are totally new they are convincingly Viennese. Dress up or at least dress eccentrically as the punters, even on a Friday lunchtime, seemed keen to be part of the atmosphere. As with its sister restaurants, it is in the high...

Full Marks

Oct 2014

Corbin and King's empire is firing on all cylinders at Fischer's. On the quieter top, Regent's Park end of Marylebone High Street, Fischer's seems closely related to the Delaunay from the same stable of restaurants. For those who know the Delaunay, Fischers is quite similar in its menu architecture which remains silightly complex, but a much more intimate space slighly more serious and slighly less glamourous space. However, the food is extremely reliable and there is a nice buzz,...

Most regular London restaurant goers would probably not include central European food in either their list of favourite or trendy cuisines. Yet, there is a quiet revolution going on, and one that is potentially only going to get louder with the recent opening of Fischer’s. One of my two dining comrades on this visit had also accompanied me to Boopshi’s last year, and while we enjoyed this experience, Fischer’s is in a different league. Indeed, after their success with the perennially popular Wolseley,...

Jun 2014

I am never the first through the door at the trendiest new opening so I was delighted when someone in the know suggested taking me to lunch at Fischers. It turns out this isn't exactly “trendy”, being aimed instead at the well-heeled grandpa market. Sadly, this Colbert & King incarnation, with its low ceilings and small dining room, lacks the grandeur of their other venues and takes the Austrian konditorei theme too far: yes it feels like an old Viennese restaurant (complete with dubious oil paintings...

    SilverSpoon London :: SilverSpoon London: A Few of Our Favourite Things at Fischer's

    Though my family aren’t religious my dad has long claimed to be gastronomically Jewish. Just like everyone he craves the comforting food of childhood that he ate growing up in the East End of London. Living in Stamford Hill, my dad could easily grab a salt beef bagel (or two!), pick up some gefilte fish or get a good dose of chicken soup. There aren’t many Jewish restaurants in London and most are located in Jewish communities such as Golders Green, so it’s not an easy task finding my dad a restaurant that serves his favourite childhood classics. That’s why when I saw the menu at Fischer’s I knew it would be perfect...
