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.

Amazing from start to finish. I chose the seasonal tasting menu, with wine pairing which was very good for the price. My only opinion would be the Slow Braised Short Rib of Black Angus Beef was way too heavy and rich for my liking especially being the fourth course from the tasting menu.

The service was amazing, staff are attentive but they do not rush you.

We left Clos Maggiore a bit disappointed. The food was nice, although two of the dishes on the seasonal tasting menu were far too heavy/fatty. We asked them to give us a 5 minute break before the final course and about 25 minutes later had to remind them we were still waiting. We felt a bit forgotten by the end as they were running around to serve other tables. The dessert was fine and the wine pairing fine as well. Unfortunately nothing to write home about (except maybe the decor!) which was a shame given the price to dine there.

I love Clos Maggiore. Everything is just perfect. We had the pre theatre menu this time which was terrific value. The staff are friendly and professional with not a hint of snootiness. Every course we had was superb and the atmosphere was just right. I think this might be my favourite restaurant in London.

Every single aspect of our evening was marvellous. Welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable staff combined with beautifully presented, truly mouth-watering food. The wine list is both daunting and exciting in equal measure, but here Daniele's knowledge and enthusiasm make discovering a new wine an extra treat. We can't wait to go back.

Everything was excellent apart from a young child who was very restless in the restaurant. He was eventually taken outside by his parent after being asked by the manager. Why are young children allowed into this sort of restaurant.?

I have been trying to secure a booking here for a very long time. Finally made it and delighted we were in the flower room too, with the log fire! So beautiful. Achingly romantic. The most memorable dining experience I have had with my darling Ashley. From the moment of arrival to departing, everything was so beautifully done. To have a cocktail that was not on the menu was thoughtful indeed. The food was delicious of course. Service absolutely impeccable. The room layout conducive to conversation without being overheard. All in all, a first class meal in a wonderful restaurant and I hope we will be able to return before too long. We both loved it. Thank you for helping us to have a gorgeous day.

We were in the conservatory which was beautiful, cost and intimate. We chose from the a la Carte menu and the food was superb and we thought it was good value for money. If one didn't want to spend so much at lunch time the set price lunch menu had a good selection and was excellent value. As I and my friends are foodies and eat out quite a lot I have already told them they must go for lunch here.

Booked here pretty much by chance for a Monday lunch and was very impressed. The food was excellent and atmosphere very relaxed and peaceful. I ended up being treated to lunch so can't comment on value, but I will certainly return.

This gem of a restaurant right in the hub of Covent Garden. Food and service were excellent, my only note to the management was the heating, which was almost uncomfortably hot.

The only reason I gave 4 stars for the food is because I chose the pork and unfortunately it had no flavour at all. My sister had the lamb, and it was delicious. Everything else was perfect.

The restaurant was able to cater for gluten and dairy allergies without issue, I had spoken to them prior to booking. Staff were very helpful. Wonderful atmosphere. We were lucky to sit near the fire, which added to the experience. Food was phenomenal. Extensive wine list. A wonderful dining experience for a special occasion. Would highly recommend and will return in future.

Excellent choice pre theatre. Menu is varied and tasty, my son, who is a vegan joined me for dinner and the restaurant were able to offer him really nice dishes on the set menu that were vegan and delicious. The staff were attentive and charming.

The food was very good but the front of house service was awful. I arrived 10 minutes early and asked to be sat at the table but was refused and put in the sitting area. I saw my guset arrive through the front window but she could not get in because the front door and hall are so narrow, the queue had to stand outside in the cold. Once in, nobody came to take us to our table. I had to go and ask if we had been forgotten. Only then were we seated. We had to ask for our order to be taken. On leaving my guest's coat was produced but not mine. After 10 minutes of fruitless searching, the greeter asked me to go upstairs and look myself. I found it crushed on a table underneath the hooks for coats. It had either been put there or had fallen from the hook but nobody had noticed. The nook where the coats were hung had no light.

We went for a pre theatre dinner as heard it suppose to be the most romantic restaurant but we were sorted by the door and when ask about the title, they said it was because of the back of the restaurant which were decorated as beer romantic but would not let us see it which was very disappointing

Of the dishes that I tasted/had, I had the crab, rack of lamb, butternut squash tortellini, and savarin. I was very impressed with all of them. Each one was really flavoursome and interesting. In addition I had one of the wines by the glass and a glass of dessert wine, both were excellent. The atmosphere was great and we were fortunate enough to sit in the conservatory.
