Very easy to find. Love the beef tenderloin, very tasty. Suit Chinese taste though. Waiters are nice and patient.

While what you wear doesn't matter here, it is an up market dining experience in a well thought out, and nicely decorated, layout. Managed by experienced staff delivering food from a top class chef and kitchen. Loved the atmosphere with just the right amount of ambient noise from happy diners. Service was first class all night, both the food and... More

We went to Claire's for the second time last Saturday and the food was just as beautiful as the last time we went in March. The snails were delicious, the Tasmanian grass fed beef fillet with truffled mash cooked to perfection and the creme brulee just melted in the mouth. My fellow diners had the cheese souffle, pork rack and... More

A great night, wonderful food, charming servers, nice cocktails and good French wine. What else can you ask for in a meal. Great for a date or a business meeting. Felt like in France...

A jewel of a find amongst the myriad of fast food outlets. This was an elegant establishment and the (only) french cuisine was exceptional. The menu is deceptively small, but noveau, but the choice and quality is top rate. The atmosphere complemented the food. A full room of 80-100 people, light hearted but with a feeling of purpose - the... More

The cheese souffle was definitely the highlight. Light yet rich with cheese flavour - every mouthful was like a pillow of cheesy goodness in your mouth! We had the chateau briand to share with all the trimmings. It was ok, but in hindsight we should've tried 2 mains. The beef was enough to share for 2, but I had thought... More

Claire's Kitchen is the new venture of French born Marc Kuzma AKA Claire de Lune. After 6 years running Slide (hint: just next door and sister business) Marc is bringing a little French style to the Paris end of Oxford street. Marc has created a traditional French Brasserie menu with a few modern twists. Claire has decorated the venue with fabulous imported wall papers, antiques and chic furniture. She has hand picked a team of charming professional french waiters and waitresses... Upstairs is le salon, a cosy cocktail party space you can reserve exclusively for 30 to 80 guests.
