A highly recommended restaurant by many for the food as well as the ambience. I finally made it there after several attempts. The place is nice but it was like going back in time in terms of the food & service. The service was just...More

Perfect restaurant for a couple as the service is exceptional. They are clearly very well trained in service and knowledge of the food itself. Great portions and music also made in an unforgettable experience. Would recommend it 100%.

Although the incredible decor may seem like the main selling point for this restaurant, that is far from the case. The food is exceptional, as is the service. There is also an expert Sommelier on hand to provide wine recommendations from their very extensive list....More

Response from Mark D | Reviewed this property |
The restaurant is lovely wherever you sit, the conservatory is quite small so the chances of getting a table is slim

There are two - an area downstairs before you get to the conservatory which is very nice, and one upstairs. The one upstairs seems a bit out the way for me, but if you're downstairs, it's still a lovely room. Worth noting... More

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.
