Clos Maggiore is an oasis of calm in the heart of Covent Garden. Influenced by the stylish country inns of Provence and Tuscany its unique interiors create a warmth and intimacy enjoyed by both business and private parties. The conservatory has a fully retractable glass roof creating a bright and airy dining space, particularly lovely during the Spring and Summer seasons. It is transformed at night by candles, starlight and a crackling fire during the Winter months. Head Chef Marcellin Marc cooks sublime Provençal inspired cuisine with contemporary panache. Marcellin is committed to using locally sourced seasonal ingredients to create perfectly balanced menus which were awarded three AA-rosettes since 2008. Our extensive cellar at Clos Maggiore includes over 2,000 labels and was extended earlier this year to include an additional 400 wines at a low – mid price range. We are very proud to have been awarded the “Best of Award of Excellence” consistently since 2003 by Wine Spectator.

We were really looking forward to going to ‘the most romantic restaurant in the world’. We had organised a babysitter and this was to be our first night out since our child’s birth. The booking had been in place for many, many months. It was announced that restaurants could re-open and we were delighted and couldn’t wait. Unfortunately the restaurant is still closed and made no attempt to contact us. Even on the day of the planned meal, open table sent us a confirmation of the booking. When I called the restaurant just to make certain I got an answer phone message directing us to their website. Their website had no information about whether they were open or closed. I emailed the restaurant and got no response either. I was so annoyed and frustrated. Hardly the sort of service levels of allegedly the ‘most romantic restaurant in the world’. Certainly isn’t in my book. Very, very, very poor. To be honest I had to provide scores of 1 out of 5 because the system doesn’t accept 0 or negative values which is what the restaurant definitely deserves.

Everything about this place was amazing. I thought being in covent garden it would be a tourist trap but I was glad to be wrong. The service food and value for money were great. I would definitely recommend.

Romantic place for sure, but not sure it worth the money. The mood is good, service was however a bit poor, not the best waiter we had. His wine pouring was rough, difficulty to understand what he was saying(we were both english/french speaker), he made mistake with the note and not very friendly. The food was good, classic but nothing really stunning.
You will be happy for the mood.

The service, the food and everything was good except for the ambiance.
I was called and told, one day before my reservation, that the main room was full and we were replaced to ‘one of the best’ tables on the 2nd floor. We were seated right next to the service room, at a table which was clearly putted there because of the fullness of the place, under super fake flower arrangements...
Normally, I would understand over selling something to get costumers but I thought this wouldn’t be the case at this restaurant, I waited three weeks for this reservation so, I am disappointed and will not be going back

We had a wonderful evening. The food was amazing, service attentive but unobtrusive and I could not recommend Clos Maggiore enough.

The food was absolutely divine! We got to peak into the fairy room. It was lovely, but so was our intimate second floor seating area. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings. There were 3 things that weren’t top notch. 1. We could barely understand the waiter, 2. We were not asked if the food was good until the plates were collected and 3. The rhubarb dessert was a disappointment after the other 4 courses were so amazing. Overall, it was a wonderful experience!

We went for the pre theatre set menu which was very good value although the drinks doubled the bill! Food was very high quality and service was fantastic. Setting in the conservatory was beautiful. Would definitely like to return again.

Had a lovely meal here on Tuesday 10/03. The staff were welcoming, friendly, attentive and nothing was ever a problem for them! Their product knowledge and service was excellent, couldn’t fault a single thing.
We had the 3 course Pre Theatre menu, which is so reasonably priced compared to some places, the food was outstanding, amazing seasonal produce!
We were seated in the conservatory area which now I can understand why it’s a popular request!
Would definitely recommend to anyone and will definitely return next time I’m in London!
Thank you!

Although we book two days before, we got a seat near the conservatory ( flower ) . The lunch menu + wine was very reasonable and delicious except for my mum’s pork stroganoff. There was something missing in their sauce ? Didn’t really taste like stroganoff . Towards the end of the lunch there were no staff to take our dessert menu and waited for 15 min ? And no one was at the reception to claim our coats + scarf so I had to go and ask one of the bartender to get it for us . Overall it was nice to have lunch there and we will definitely go back there again !

service from front of house to waiters, wine waiter always friendly and efficient.

Noise level excellent, seating comfortable.

not too attention, just right amount.

Very good value for set menu.

Tend to book Clos Maggiore rather than Clubs and other restaurants in the area.

often recommend restaurant to friends.

A nice meal, but they should let you know in advance if you're not going to be seated in the main part of the restaurant. The part we were seated in was quite characterless.
