A perfect light lunch before a matinée theatre performance. Great wine list and wonderful ingredients as you would expect to find at F&M

This is a lovely place to visit and meet. The staff were lovely and so friendly. Food is as always fantastic and the place has a nice little buzz. If your feeling a little more adventurous you can wine etc from the wine cellar and drink in the bar giving you a lot more choice.

The wine bar is going off the boil. It closes too early and staff are offhand on service in the last 30 mins.

I was in London for the day on my own so decided to have a late lunch here. I had a trio of oysters and the smoked salmon duo washed down with a couple of glasses of Sancerre. The oysters were really good as was the salmon, and although I’m not a great wine drinker the wine I chose was lovely. The atmosphere was relaxing and the staff were friendly and helpful. I will definitely return when I’m next in London.

I chose this wine bar for early evening drinks with friends visiting from California. They have membership of various vineyards in CA and are knowledgeable about wine.
They were very impressed with everything about The Wine Bar and particularly with the welcome, the recommendations and the general knowledge of staff.
This was my first visit to The Wine Bar and I hope to return often. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Not cheap but such a nice place to be. Great wine to be had by the glass and excellent ‘small bites’ food.

And of course an excuse to visit the wonderful F&M

Just too small and way too loud. The idea of a wine bar with some decent food served at F&M is great. Unfortunately the execution is just poor. Service is great and our waitress was attentive, helpful and couldn't fault her. Although we did have to ask for our table to be wiped down as it was covered in drinks from the previous people. The biggest issues are the fact the noise is just too much. You have to almost shout tone heard and most of what you do hear is other people on the tables that are way too close.

A shame as I was really looking forward to this, but we had one quick drink and some snacks and got out of there as quick as we could.

Had to wait 15 minutes for my booked table, a further 20 minutes to get someone to take our order. We received our drinks around 15 minutes later and then were not approached again for any other drinks which we would have liked. Overall really bad service, won't be returning.

We wanted to enjoy the Fortnum & Mason experience so booked for the wine bar. We noticed that they almost gave our table to their walk ins in front and it took a while to get the menu and then to order. When we had to follow up on the order it started to feel like hard work!

Impeccable service, booked a high table at the bar and as it was so busy, when a table become available, was able to move with a polite request.
Go with the English sparkling rose, better than champagne 🥂🍾

Food and wine amazing and well worth it. Staff very nice, however service slow - appreciate it's Christmas, however too slow. Table was wobbly and we had to ask to get it fixed - not very good for such an expensive experience. Would absolutely recommend it as I know the service can be better - it is a great food and wine experience.

A perfect place to meet for lunch, relaxed and welcoming. The three dishes that we had, padron peppers, smoked salmon and endive with goats cheese were all well-presented and delicious. The wine was extensive and the waiter was on hand to give advice. Recommended in all respects.

A welcome oasis from the christmas shopping hordes in the store. Small plates, well-served, with a great choice of wine (and why not, in that department of F&M).
