If romance is in the cards, London's most romantic restaurant is Covent Garden's multi award-winning Clos Maggiore. Echoing the charming country inns of Provence and Tuscany, the warmly muted decor, low lighting and welcoming log fire were clearly designed with love in mind. The skylight is surrounded with twining, flower-starred branches to resemble an Italianate courtyard, a delightful faux-rural treat in the city centre. Seasonally inspired classic French cuisine coupled with impeccable service is the order of the day at Clos Maggiore restaurant, with a focus on chic presentation and bold flavours. The range of menus include a six-course "tasting menu" featuring such dishes as "Seared Wild Scallops, Ratte Potato & Winter Truffle" and "Pan Roasted Fillet of Cornish Cod, Olive Oil & Basil Pomme Puree". In addition Clos Maggiore serves a reasonably priced, regularly changing set lunch and pre-theatre menus. To find the perfect complement Clos Maggiore's extensive cellar includes over 2500 labels and was extended earlier this year to include an additional 400 wines at a low - mid price range. They have recently been awarded the "The Grand Wine Award 2014" by the Wine Spectator - one of only 70 restaurants worldwide to receive this accolade. Clos Maggiore has been voted in the "Top Ten" categories for "Best French Restaurants", "Best Ambiance" and "Special Occasion Restaurants" by opentable. Toptable lists Clos Maggiore as one of the most highly rated dining venues in London and Square Meal lists Clos Maggiore as one of the best restaurants with Private Rooms.

From the moment we arrived we were treated to first class service. Almost waited on hand and foot!, The waiters couldn't do enough for us. Very attentive and made us feel very special. Worth every penny.

Cannot recommend this place enough. If I could give 10/5 stars, I would. Service was absolutely faultless, top notch, and I will 100% be back. My partner and I have already made this our designated 'place'! We ate in conservatory and I think the settings in this part were the cherry on top of a very fabulous cake.

We had a booking to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. The restaurant is beautiful, even the parts not in the famous conservatory. We did not go for the set menu, but this looked very decent and well priced. I started with the rabbit which was perfectly cooked, whereas my girlfriend had the crab which was unbelievable.

We make a bee line for this place every time we are I lo ndon and are never disappointed. Ordered the tasting menu with paired wines, expensive but worth it, get to try things I may not order myself like the halibut and alwyas love it. The wines are wonderfully matched with each course and the device second to none.... More

Booked by my girlfriend I didn't know anything about the restaurant and was really impressed with the ambience from the moment we walked in, especially sitting in the conservatory. The food was enjoyable and of very good quality. Would definitely go back.

This restaurant offer the great combination of value and quality. Always feels like a complete treat dining here and doesn't break the bank. Tasting menu £55 pp which comparatively for a restaurant in Covent Garden is pretty good. Watch out for the wine list; it's a huge cellar and very tempting. Defo ask for the rear conservatory and best tables... More

What a beautiful restaurant, we had a table in the conservatory which was stunning. Didn't realise when I booked that it was a special 3 course meal. Hubby had pigeon terrine, main meals were duck with gratin potatoes and chicken with mash and peas, both were delicious. Desserts were an orange moussre and sticky toffee pudding were yummy.
