I would not change anything about my experience here! Booking is something that is very important! I reserved my table in Feb for my husband's birthday in August. Make sure to ask for a table in the conservatory where the gorgeous flowers and lights are. They only have 7 tables here, so the need to book far in advance! The... More

Clos Maggiore combines the magic of a beautiful conservatory-like setting in the heart of London, with the gastronomic magic that completes the evening. Flawless, attentive yet very friendly service makes one feel as though they are the only diners. The menu, although not expansive, is all-inclusive and provides wonderful choices including a well-constructed tasting menu. The wine list is incredible,... More

After a great meal at Petrus, we were in search of other fine dining establishments that served good French cuisine. We walked into Clos and were escorted up the stairs to a cozy dining room with about 6 tables. Our server was attentive and efficient; service was flawless. We had some great brown and sourdough bread with lovely unsalted butter... More

Clos Maggiore is an absolutely stunning restaurant in the heart of Covent Garden. It is often labelled as the most romantic restaurant in the UK if not world and I can see why. The main dining area is set in a room with a ceiling covered in plants and lights - it is truly beautiful. The food and service are... More

Booked our table for a small bite to eat before heading off to the theatre. Food was fantastic... the salmon was cooked to perfection and I didn't think it was possible to cook asparagus like that! Our waiter was adorable and topped our glasses up without hassling us but nor did he let us run dry... Service was spot on... More

I booked a table at Clos Maggiore as a surprise for my husband's 30th birthday. Although it is not possible to reserve a table in the conservatory I did put in a request for such a table and much to my surprise we were seated in the conservatory. The whole restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and I can see why... More

Description
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.
