Perhaps I had high expectations. Service is great. But the food is a little average and there wasn't much ambiance.

The food was amazing. We set for 2 course lunch menu which price was ok. Weve added one dessert and they were fine with it. Bread kept coming- really tasty focaccia . The sitting area was a bit crowded but the food and environment did good. One comment : The waiters were a bit stiff , not joking or small... More

What can I say about Clos? One of the best restaurants in the world in our opinion. We had high expectations and the staff and food exceeded them. Great deco in the conservatory and lovely music and atmosphere. Just magical food. We had smoked herring and my wife had the crab. Both amazing. For main we had fillet steak and... More

Clos Maggiore is supposed to be the most romantic restaurant in London so when we were taken to Clos Maggiore by my mother for my birthday it was an interesting choice. The only table we could get was 7.30 and even then they had turned it beforehand as when I arrived slightly early I was told to wait in a... More

Can't rave about Clos Maggiore enough. The most perfect combination of atmosphere, service and great food. Intimate, small setting with staff who make you feel so very comfortable and welcome. Immense wine list and great food. Seasonal taking menu is better than ever and the win pairing is brilliant. Lovely, Lovely place and people.

The interior, quality of food, and service, just blew us away. A special lunch occasion and recommended by a number of visitors. Surpassed our expectations. Stunning interior and a several month ahead booking, to get into the beautiful blossom clad conservatory.

We didn't go for romance as there were 10 for a business lunch. Lovely atmosphere and beautiful decor. We're the Monets on the wall real? The food was first class, delicious meats and the sweets were parfait! Service too was immaculate and very French and a pity we couldn't have stayed for dinner too!

This restaurant totally deserves all the accolades and positive reviews it receives. Exceptional service from the time we arrived - prompt, polite, efficient yet not overbearing - in a beautiful oasis close to but immune from the tourist hub of Covent Garden. Not a cheap night out - c.£250 for the two of us having their taster menu accompanied by... More

We have just returned from a superb meal at Clos Maggiore. Both the food and the service were faultless. We were seated in the upstairs dining room and had no complaints at all. The lobster bisque that I had as a starter was excellent and the venison main was cooked to perfection - everyone else at the table also commented... More

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.
