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.

Food was fab! French, not heavy, perfectly prepared. Service was excellent! Polite and helpful without being obsequious. The setting was quiet without being stuffy. Romance +++

This is a lovely, quiet restaurant a few blocks from Covent Gardens and very far away from the crowds of tourist in the area. From the moment you walk through the front door the service is very professional. We were seated in the upstairs room and while it does not have the ambiance of downstairs, it was lovely. We both opted for the set menu; I had two courses and he had three. My gazpacho was fresh and fabulous while he was very pleased with his duck confit starter. We both opted for the char and found it quite good. He finished with orange cheesecake and was quite happy. Our server was very professional as well as personable. Including a bottle of wine (included in the price) our lunch was US$ 80 including service.

We have already booked a table for next week!

I went hear for Lunch and the food was exceptional, the service was superbly attentive without being too "fussy". I had requested menus without prices for my guest and some champagne to be ready and all this "appeared" perfectly on cue! Overall - Excellent.

My boyfriend and I came here last night and were seated in the conservatory, which is a very special area. Really beautiful and atmospheric. The service was impeccable, which is to be expected of a restaurant of this calibre. The food itself was very good and cooked very well however, a few hours after our meal, both myself and my boyfriend experienced severe bloating and a general uncomfortableness in the stomach. We both only had a starter and a main so it wasn't because we had over-eaten. Although it was a lovely dinner, the aftermath unfortunately means we probably won't be returning.
