I had a light dinner and dessert at Claire's Kitchen last September with my long-time friend Charles-Antoine. A great place to have long and quiet conversations, without any time limit. Very professional staff, and great selection of desserts.

If you are a local or a tourist, a visit to Claire's is a must do. The staff are always accommodating and friendly. It's great for couples or groups of friends. Always better with groups as you get to eat more food (haha). If you're lucky the beautiful Claire/Marc may come over to your table and have a chat. Always... More

Enjoyed a lovely dinner on Friday night. Food is quite rich, as you'd expect at a French restaurant. Elegant atmosphere.

We have dined at this restaurant on 5 occasions and just love this place. From the service to the sumptuous food one would find it very hard to fault. This one is definitely a keeper.

Nice little place - aimed at the romantic meal end of the market I would say. Classic French cooking. Service was pretty slow and I was a bit annoyed that our waitress insisted on talking us through the desert menu despite us saying that we didn't want to order anything more and asking for the bill. Ok but we thought... More

Great service, the staff were charming. The food has always been good here. I tend to like the chateaubriand and escargot the most, but I'm a mean and snail kind of guy. The chips are nice too for what it's worth. The decor is nice for a date or a business meeting, and even the bathroom is posh.

This little place looks nothing from the outside, however, once inside it is a different story. The decor is classic and the atmosphere is great. The service was excellent. A large proportion of the menu is gluten free.

We've lost count of the number of times we've made the almost 2 hour drive to get to Claire's Kitchen at le Salon, but every time has been wonderful. We regularly take friends - especially overseas visitors who are discerning diners and none have been disappointed. Saturday night was busy, but we still received a very warm welcome from the...

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.
