This is the second time we have been this year, we like the food (the style reminds me of the food my family used to cook when I was a kid), the portions are generous and tasty.
It isn't the kind of restaurant where you linger unless you are a slow eater and dictate the timing yourselves - the service is good but can be perfunctory and a little surly - but not impolite - we don't mind that though - in fact one might say "Germanic" in its efficiency. Our dinner took about 90 minutes (2 courses for me and 3 for Louise) which is quick for us.
For starters we had chopped liver (which I love and is like my mum makes) and Louise had a dish of spaetzle with smoked bacon and cheese, it is hearty, filling and delicious.
For mains we have only ever had the wiener schnitzel - Louise has a half sized portion to leave room for dessert.
with sides of pickled cucumber salad and Austrian potato salad. You'll notice a sauce under the schnitzel, this is "Sauce Parisian" a beefy jus....... Personally I am unconvinced this is necessary, it would be better served on the side as underneath it results in a bit of a soggy bottom on what is otherwise a perfect (in my view) schnitzel. The schnitzel itself is just as it should thin, crispy, moist and delicious - brilliantly cooked, it is such a faff to do properly at home (even if you can get the correct cut of veal).
Louise had a apple strudel for dessert, believe it or not I really don't do desserts very much. The strudel was surprisingly un-sweet and sharp with apple or a perfect texture.
The couple next to us (tables are very close together) had the some sausages which looked great and very generous. The wine list is short but perfectly ok, we treated ourselves to a £50 bottle Riesling which was just perfect.
We definitely recommend Fischers the food is spot on, it isn't fine dining but it is great, and very good at what it does..... we'll be going back.
If anyone is looking for a more fine dining type experience in Marylebone, we can also recommend The Orrery (http://www.orrery-restaurant.co.uk/) which a French restaurant a little further up Marylebone High Street (towards Baker St)from Fischers , it is very different and more expensive, but the food is lovely and well worth considering for a special occasion.
