Description: 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.

“French cuisine at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

What a nice restaurant on Oxford Street not only for the gay but also straight clientele everyone is made welcome - just the way it should be. We have been twice in three weeks and this place is consistently very good.The food is delicious, plentiful and well presented. The service is very good and very helpful they informed us that from Tuesday through Friday it is two courses for $49 per person. So the price is right. Highly recommended

“A little gem in a big City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Well, what can I say about this little gem of a restaurant...Firstly the food, if you love french cooking then you will adore Marks food, if you love good service from genuinely lovely freshmen then you will love here, if you like attention to detail, people who remember you time and time again and can even remember what you had to drink when you were there months before then this is the place for you...its charming yet homely, the decor is beautiful and the atmosphere amazing, I honestly don't want to tell anyone in case I can't get a table next time!! Do go, do try you will love it!!

“Sensational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Been to Claires 3 times now and always have a great night.

As soon as you step in the door of venue you feel as if you could be anywhere in France. All staff seem to be french and offer very attentive and efficient service with a smile. They know the food and wine menu inside out and always have recommendations.

The food is beautiful, very fresh and flavoursome. The cheese soufflé, duck and pinor pie and chateaurbriand are my favourites. Last week I took 5 friends to Claires and they were very impressed with the experience and can't wait to go back.

Make sure you book, the place does get very busy and is often fully.

“Absolutely Fabulous!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We've had dinner here on numerous occasions over the past year and have never been disappointed. If you're looking for authentic French cooking, then this is the place! The food is consistently wonderful and the staff are absolutely charming. We've introduced friends to this restaurant without hesitation, and they've all loved it as much as we do. The menu is updated regularly, and the cocktails are delightfully creative!

I've also used the upstairs room for a corporate function, which was very successful, and which I would rebook without hesitation.
