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.

Took a client here on a Monday night assuming we'd have no problem getting a table. Fully booked! However they did manage to juggle a few tables and squeezed us in upstairs. Menu is small (always a good sign) but plenty of choice. Food was excellent as was the very attentive but not over the top service. Wine list (actually its a ring binder book with hundreds of wines) was seriously impressive. Picked a Pomerol (couldn't stretch to a Petrus!) and was impressed that they had it in stock. Nice touch decanting the bottle for us, don't often see that! Overall an excellent choice and would highly recommend.

Exceeded our expectation, service and food outstanding. Great value for what you get. One thing to beware of we had lunch there as part of our wedding anniversary and you are surrounded mainly by business men having lunches, therefore I would choose the evening meal in future to help create a better ambience.

I have been meaning to write about my visits here for some time and haven't got around to it. I have been recommending Clos Maggiore to my friends as it really offers a wonderful dining experience in such lovely surroundings in the conservatory. Romantic best describes the setting and the food really is delicious. A superb wine selection and an attentive and friendly team look after you. The food is rich tasty and of a very high standard. I have been meaning to go again and shall do soon I hope. Its very tucked away and was really unknown to me until I had a recommendation. Definitely a must.

What a fantastic Restaurant, from setting to food and to the very pleasant and welcoming staff.
This was our first visit, we booked a month in advance and requested the beautiful conservatory with fireplace, although we were told we had to give up our table prior to booking (3 hours) for 10:30pm, we stayed till 12 midnight and never felt uncomfortable that we had to leave, as well as the food, the whole atmosphere and ambience is very impressive, you just want to stay in there forever :)
A definite must, should be at a much higher rank on TA.

We went to CM for our anniversary and it was superb. The food was brilliant, service excellent and the restaurant interior is amazing - but when you book (and you need to book long in advance) be sure to ask for a table in the conservatory area - filled with little lights and trees with blossoms (I assume fake, although they weren't tacky). This is the most appealing part of the restaurant and if you don't sit in here (or with a good view of it), you will be missing out on one of the best features of the restaurant.
