Booked a meal here to celebrate our anniversary after reading the reviews. We were a little disappointed that we didn't get seated in the conservatory despite requesting it when we booked back in November. However, the service is outstanding and my husband in particular enjoyed his rabbit starter and his venison main course. My favourite was the meringue dessert. No... More

Went to visit on Friday, we were lucky to be seated in the conservatory by the fire, beautiful room. The food and service were great. The truffle mash is to die for. Will definitely go back.

I remember seeing a photo once of this restaurant and knowing instantly that I had to visit and see if it was just as pretty as it is in the photos... spoiler, it is. Although you cannot specifically reserve a table in the "conservatory" (the flower room) you can still get lovely views and appreciate the setting. The food is... More

This was an idyllic experience in the conservatory at the rear of this Covent Garden Restaurant. We ate following a trip to the theatre and the service was excellent despite a little confusion over the existence of a post theatre menu. Everything cooked to perfection.

This is by far the best restaurant I have ever had the pleasure of dinning at, the food was brilliant and the service was perfect. But nothing topped the setting, the whole atmosphere was incredible, there was a lovely fire in the middle of the room which filled the room with warmth. The flowers and branches overhead made you feel... More

I visited this beautiful restaurant last night, Wednesday 15th February with my boyfriend and we simply didn't want to leave. Upon arrival our coats were taken from us and we were seated in the lounge whilst we waited for our table. We sat comfortably admiring the fine collection of whiskey and wine they had on display. As a surprise my... More

My parents & I went for dinner on Saturday evening. We all had the tasting menu with the selected wines. It was absolutely delicious, the food was faultless & the wine was fantastic. The sommelier was knowledgable, explaining our wine & how it paired with the dinner. The service was extremely attentive without being overbearing. It was clearly stated that... More

My partner and I came for lunch here on 14th February 2017 and sat in the conservatory. It is really beautiful in there! We both had the tasting menu for £65.00 for five courses and an additional £8.00 supplement for the cheese board. It was well worth the money. The food was absolutely delicious and I could not fault any... 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.
