I'm almost reluctant to tell people about the first quiet restaurant I've found in London with really excellent food, in case it is fully booked the next time I want to go! We have eaten there before and the food is as delicious as ever. I had sea bass and my husband and daughter had the lamb - both beautifully... More

Went to this restaurant for our 46th Wedding Anniversary and arrived 30 minutes early. We asked if we could have a drink to wait for our daughter to arrive and was told by a very curt lady who booked us into the restaurant that we were too early and it would be better to go straight to our table once...

I suppose it's not really fair to compare this lovely little restaurant with Fera at Claridges. We had been there a few months previously and had booked Clos Maggiore for a change. Staff were very attentive and did manage to squeeze us into the conservatory which was very pretty. The food was of a high standard, but far from faultless... More

A relatively impromptu visit on a Friday lunchtime was rewarded with a lovely corner table in the atrium area. Staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and the food was simply devine - well presented with lots of colour and truly delicious. Both of our meat and fish main courses were perfect. We didn't venture from the a la carte as... More

We probably got the worst table in the place. It was very small and the space with the next one was very narrow (tables are all packed). From my side, I could only see the corner of the bar and the wall. I had to turn around to look from the distance to the place I actually wanted to have... More

Patio is a must to complete this most romantic experience. Delicious food, interesting menu choices. Food was perfectly cooked and presented. Amazing wine list. Nice to be able to have fine wines by the glass to have different experiences. Efficient and friendly service

TripAdvisor came through again! We came to this restaurant because of TripAdvisor reviews and its location near theatres. We were a little worried when we arrived because it seemed very formal, but the food was excellent and so was the wait staff. It was not too expensive since we took advantage of the pre-theatre set menu and a half carafe... More

We had a dinner at the restaurant's conservatory area recently and totally loved the ambience and service. The pre-theatre menu offers good value with a 3 course + half bottle wine selection. To be frank I have tasted better traditional French cuisine with a twist but at that price + the ambience I really have no complaints. The Focaccia bread... More

beautiful venue. food cooked beautifully and very filling, would have been nice to have the option to take the left overs away as food was really good and didnt want to waste it but they could not accommodate this. was quite pricey so not sure the average person would dine here regularly but really nice for a special occasion.

From the moment you walk in you are met with a warm friendly greeting. Having left it late to book (two weeks before getting to London), we had a table at the front of the restaurant and not the famous conservatory, where's there is three couples tables and a round family one. Although none of this mattered as the level... More

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.
