Wine is at the heart and soul of Clarette – which is no surprise as the inspirations behind the restaurant are two of Europe’s new generation of wine lovers, Alexandra Petit-Mentzelopoulos of the Château Margaux family and leading restaurateur Natsuko Perromat du Marais.

With a vibrant and sophisticated interior, Clarette is a delightful place to explore wine and to enjoy French-inspired food, designed as the perfect complement to the wine, beautifully presented and expertly served.

A bit of treat visit as it's quite pricey, but I've been a couple of times and the food is excellent and the servers very friendly.

Celebration dinner at Clarette. Service impeccable as usual. Naturally given the owner's history, we ordered a 1996 Pavillon Rouge which was perfect. Very efficient and friendly service. Food good if not outstanding. Overall a lovely place.

Firstly, it is a British pub turned into a restaurant; it advertises to be French, but not even near it!
Very pushy rude staff with very clear commercial agenda!!!
You definitely feel touristy and obligated to order more because the waiter keeps asking!!!
Overpriced food, uncomfortable ambiance and disappointing experience! I wouldn’t recommend it!

Early dinner catch up with a friend. The restaurant is very cleanliness conscious. You need to bring a mask to enter and must wear it whenever moving to and from the table. We had a lovely window seat. The food was outstanding - sea bass perfect and the chocolate tart with violet ice cream is something I will dream about for some time to come. Wine selection more limited than I expected, but not something that distracted from an overall lovely experience. The staff were never pushy, always on hand, even as the restaurant got busy. A pleasure!

I knew nothing about this great neighbourhood spot until I was looking for a venue to meet a girlfriend for an afternoon of good wine, food and conversation. Such a great place for all of the above.

We booked Clarette, as a large table, for a birthday dinner. Everything about the dinner was perfectly organised - the restaurant encouraged me to fix menu bookings in advance, and even to prepare a seating plan, and this was really helpful and really made for such a smooth experience.
We were very well attended and treated with great respect; all the food was excellent and although there were scant vegetarian possibilities, everyone was excited about their food.
I chose the two wines - the English ‚Gusbourne‘ sparkling, which was lovely, and the 2014 Argentinian Cabernet Sauvignon, genuinely a revelation.
Everything was subject to a rather excessive Central London markup, but I didn‘t mind because it was a special occasion.

Great venue for wine (although pricey, but the range/quality is upper end) the food was good but not great, the cocktails were great and worth a try. The focus is on the wine and if that's your forte, then check it out. However there are no reasonably priced wines on the menu so you end up with a fairly hefty bill that you wouldn't object to in a swanky upscale restaurant, however the vibe here is relaxed and casual so felt a bit spendy for the overall package.

A gem of a bistro with excellent range of snacks, entrees and mains - artfully done without being fussy. Needless to say, excellent wine selection - check out the Margaux Discovery flight!

Honestly average food lacking flavor. We tried over 5 dishes, sadly the Mac and cheese side was the best of the lot. Seriously overpriced for the quality delivered.
Good for wine, skip the food .

All ok . Wine waiter kept forgetting to offer me a drink and kept forgetting to also top me up when he topped everyone else up. Apart from that it was a lovely evening,ambience was perfect especially at Christmas time. The food was absolutely delicious. And our waitress was 10/10 the manager looked a little grumpy though . But at this time of the year it’s expected in catering
