I was one of 20 guests seated in a private room for a business dinner among friends. From the minute we arrived, the experience was near-perfect. The champagne was icy and delightful. The fire and the bowls of roses on the tables made for a wonderfully romantic space. The food was exceptional, and the wine -- particularly the red --... More

This restaurant is definitely worth the wait. Altho we were not able to get a table in the conservatory, you still get the top class good and service. The set lunch is £40 including 1/2 bottle of wine. The food is beautifully cooked and presented. The Clos Maggiore Chocolate is simply divine. (£10 supplement) It is also so conveniently located,...

I had a very nice dinner yesterday night. Food was lovely as well as the accompanying wine. Staff was there looking to please guests without invading their spaces. Definitely suggest the Sunday dinner menu at 39.50

It's a shame I can't award half stars (or rate out of ten) as it is above average but not quite very good. The restaurant certainly deserves it's title as London's most romantic, it is a beautiful venue & the menu is actually very reasonably priced. I just think that the staff were a bit inattentive & the food was... More

had read quite a few reviews of this place and wanted to give it a try and there has been a bit of a wait to get a booking, many of the reviews suggest a bit of an obsession with the conservatory but we were given a seat just outside the conservatory which was great , a very romantic spot... More

Tried to book for a Friday but was fully booked for months so we tried for a Saturday lunch instead. We were a little concerned when we realised there was the tasting menu and only the set lunch on offer. We needn't have worried as the choice on the set lunch was really good and they had a daily special... More

My husband took me here for my birthday and it was so beautiful. We had lunch on a weekday before watching a west-end show so it wasn't very busy when we got there but was almost full when by the time we left. We had a table in the main part of the restaurant with the beautiful blossom tree decor... More

Spent our 20th Anniversary dinner here last night. It truly is the most romantic restaurant. Dining under fairy lights and flowers, eating amazing food and drinking wonderful wine made this a dinner to remember. Try the truffle pasta - I could've died happy after that one dish but I'm happy I got to hang around for the rest. Our sommelier... More

Our daughter booked me and my wife a dining experience at this restaurant, unknown to us for a Christmas present. We had never heard of this place and from first glance from outside I would of probably of walked past. However the staff are very friendly and inviting they took us through to the conservatory which was laced in lights... 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.
