The stars speak for themselves! The only downside was that, despite calling the restaurant the previous day to confirm the reservation and holding written confirmation, they got this wrong (both number of people and the time), but this was quickly resolved.
a very special place
A beautiful place to celebrate a special occasion. Excellent ambience, food, service and wine - although don't get so engrossed in the massive wine list that you ignore your partner!
Me and husband have just had lunch at Clos Maggiore. The restaurant was intimate and beautiful. The staff were very polite and professional and the food was absolutely amazing. We cannot wait to return.
Excellent lunch. This is the
Excellent lunch. This is the 3rd time we go there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Very helpful and attentive service. We even got a discreet " Happy Anniversary " message on our desert plates!
Highly recommend it
I'm slightly reluctant to review Clos Maggiore, as its our absolutely favourite place to eat and it would be a night mare if we couldn't get a table!
Its small but very beautiful, the service is very good, the food even better. The menu is seasonal with regular changes so there is always something new to try.
People who are not interested in excellent food and amazing wines should eat else where.
A Perfect Evening
My impossibly high expectations were matched and exceeded by the stunning Clos Maggiore Conservatory and the staff. The remarkable conservatory had been decorated for Christmas, the wine chosen for us was fantastically sweet and the food was obviously glorious. For me the highlight of the evening was the staff, who were so courteous and at the end of the evening when they brought out a plate of petit fours with 'Happy Anniversary' written in chocolate, I was bowled away. So I wanted to say a huge thank you to Clos Maggiore for giving me one of the most romantic evenings of my life.
I was pleasantly surprised
I was pleasantly surprised at the high standard of cooking, attention to detail and excellent taste of the food. We had the taster menu and everything was cooked perfectly.
The ambience was lovely eventhough we were not placed in the main 'romantic' area
Pre theatre enjoyment
Once again, Clos Maggiore make a Saturday afternoon matinee an even better experience. We had a leisurely lunch in the beautifully decorated conservatory, the food was delicious and the service was,as always, efficient but light hearted which added to our enjoyment.
It was our anniversary celebration
It was our anniversary celebration and we asked in advance if we could have a seat in the famous conservatory, however, all tables are full when we arrive, so it was disappointing, but had a peek at the conservatory, it is lovely. Service could have been better, we wanted only half a bottle of wine to share between us as we wouldn't be able to finish a whole bottle, but a whole bottle was opened and waiter snatched it away when he find out we only wanted half a bottle, even though we didn't have half of it, just a small glass each. Food was amazing though, my bf is French and he was impressed. Would go back for Sunday lunch though, excellent value for quality of food, only for the average service.
Elegant and satisfactory
Nice place, nice meal, nice service, nice wine list.
They take care and that matters.
Will be back!
Great Ambience Excellent Service
Restuarant is not very huge. Very nicely decorated. Great Ambience for leisure dinners. Excellent Service. Probably, the only negative is the price is a bit too steep.
makes you feel very special! ...
Great attentive staff, very pleasant & friendly. Wonderful ambience and excellent cuisine. Consistently great meal from one of my favourite London restaurants.
Romantic atmosphere, great value
It was my first visit but I'm definitely going back next time if I want to have a romantic dinner. Great food, amazing wine selection with great prices, very friendly staff. Best place to celebrate or treat your partner.
Outstanding service, staff
Outstanding service, staff very attentive, but not too much so.
Highly knowledgeable sommelier and beautifully presented and wonderfully flavoured food.
Perfect place for an atmospheric dinner - were seated in the conservatory with a log fire, which was lovely and intimate.
Would go back in a heartbeat.
This restaurant was a memorable
This restaurant was a memorable experience. We had visited here for lunch about a week earlier and were most impressed and made it a point to come for dinner before going home to Canada. Fro the moment we entered until we departed, it was something to be remembered. Ambience, food, service it was all first class.
A beautiful evening
You'll struggle to find a more romantic setting for dinner than Clos Maggiore. Understated but welcoming service, an imposing wine list, delightful decor, soothing ambience and most importantly fantastic food. Juicy scallops were a delicious treat to start, while the duck breast and venison mains were done to perfection. The portions were hearty too, so much so that we couldn't finish the side of crispy triple cooked chips. All in all a lovely evening.
Staff amazing and good and wine even better cannot fault. 3 course each bottle of very good wine and 4cocktails all for less than £170. Outstanding
Great settin and great food
The conservatory was one of the best and most romantic settings I've seen in a restaurant. The food and accompanying wine were more than a match for such a setting.
This is the second time I have eaten at Clos Maggiore and have found it to be outstanding in every way! My husband and I have booked again for 2 weeks time! I cannot speak highly enough of the food, the staff and the ambience.
Excellent food and service
Excellent food and service and very pleasant ambience
Savour the flavours
Food to be relished for its flavours and textures. Immaculate service. I arrived an hour early, but was immediately shown to my table with no fuss.
a regular haunt
This is the perfect place for a post-theatre supper. The post-10pm menu is terrific value for such quality food. We are always welcomed and never disappointed.
Post theatre meal
This restaurant was ideal for our post theatre eating.We were within walking distance to our theatre as well as Covent Garden if you just wanted to walk around there. The food was excellent, service was quick and our waiter was very helpful and friendly. It was a lovely setting and very reasonably priced for a London restaurant. I would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone. It is well worth a visit whatever your occasion.
Very enjoyable experience
Very good restaurant; service is really nice; the food is marvellous and the ambience is really cool and cosy. I definitely recommend this wonderful place!
Pre theatre 22/11/13
By far the best restaurant that I have eaten at in London. Excellent value superb quality and Romantic with a capital 'R'.
It is a must and the pre-theatre deal is incredible value.
Great experience, worth a visit!
This is a fantastic restaurant for a very unique dining experience. Very romantic decor and soft lights matched with excellent food, wine and service make this the perfect place to treat a loved one. This was our first visit and will most definately be returning and recommending to friends.
This was our first visit to Clos Maggiore and we would definitely love to come back. All the Staff were very helpful and friendly. Service was excellent.
Set menu was great value for money and that included half a bottle of very acceptable wine. (Red or White)
We sat in the conservatory , it's very cosy and beautifully decorated . We loved the very relaxed feel of the wonderful
Restaurant in Covent Garden. Please go and experience this early lovely place.
Romantic and good quality
We went with 2 other couples and was £56 per person and we ordered the following:
Startes to share 3 in the middle:
All of us went for the duck (amazing) and venison
We ordered the tatin tart, chocolate bomb and the typical french dessert
Two bottles of wine
Really worth going and repeating
Clos Maggiore just gets better
Just when you think Clos Maggiore has reached its pinnacle and it's not possible to get any better, the next occasion seems to raise above the previous dining experience. It's an allusion; it's because you had forgotten just how good it was the time before... and before... and before.
This restaurant offers more than just a nice meal in pleasant surroundindgs. Its much more about the whole experience from the moment you arrive and continues throughout the time you are there. Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable staff make sure that you feel like you are the most important people in the restaurant, a very rare skill thesedays. The choice, quality and presentation of the food continues the theme.
I can see why its always booked
So after more than a years worth of waiting, I finally got around to going to Clos Maggiore with my friend. Tucked in the middle of a busy street in Covent Garden, upon entering, we are greeted with a friendly smile. The food was absolutely heavenly. I do not usually enjoy cold food, but the starter I had was excellent. Even the sourdough bread tasted good. As for the main course. Both the veal belly and coq au vin were divine. The veal especially which melted in my mouth. Deserts were a bit disappointing after the 2 amazing courses before but nonetheless were still good. Looking forward to bringing my family there.
2 times within a week.
Great place. This was my second time I went there. This time tried the pre theatre menu. Great value!!!! Definitely going back soon again!
An amazing restaurant
The food was absolutely exquisite with sublime flavours and textures. The service was ever present but not obtrusive and the ambience was lovely. I've been raving about the restaurant.
We enjoy a long weekend every year in London and our highlight is a visit to clos maggiore. Never disappointed. We love the staff surroundings and food. We have recommended it to many of our friends and they have not been disappointed
Clos Maggiore was just as fantastic as we dreamed about! My wife and I were celebrating our 25'th anneversery and I must admit that we were not disappointed for a second. We ordered the seasonal tasting menu with matched wines supplement and the food and the wine together were one of the absolutely best meals I've ever tasted. And the service was also a 5-star experience!!!
Back to Clos Maggiore for
Back to Clos Maggiore for a lunch and glad to find that nothing has changed. The food is delicious, the service excellent and the fixed price menu, including wine, is great value.

Lunch on Friday
Super table downstairs and alert and friendly staff. My guest, who had not been before, was forty minutes late but it didn't matter.didn't matter! Excellent bread and petit four. Set lunch always good but not sure about £5.00 supplement for fish. Excellent glass of Prosseco and robust but smooth house red. Cant really fault the place. Will always go again..
Outstanding in every way.
Outstanding in every way. The most beautiful dining room of ever had dinner at
Great for a special occasion
I took my girlfriend for her Birthday and she loved it. The food is excellent, the restaurant has an intimate feel to it and the service was attentive but not intrusive. I would reccomend it to anyone. Perfect for a special occasion.
Clos Maggiore has to be the
Clos Maggiore has to be the prettiest restaurant in London. Lunch there on Saturday was the usual joy and the Christmas decorations and log fire made for a hugely enjoyable experience. The brilliant chef goes from strength to strenght. I have already booked my next two visits.
Beautiful setting, beautiful food, beautiful service! Beautiful!
This is a really lovely restaurant for couples. We had a wonderfull meal and our waiters were ready with their breadbasket, water and other services when ever needed. I can recommend this restaurant if You would like to eat well in a lovely restaurant.
I took my wife here based on the reviews I had read previously.
We had the pre-theatre menu and it was excellent value for money in such beautiful surroundings.
All I can say is that we were blown away by the whole evening. Service of the highest standards in the most special atmosphere. Second to none !
We booked a table at Clos Maggiore to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it lived up to the hype. We had asked to be seated in the conservatory if possible and we weren't disappointed. Beautifully decorated for Christmas, the whole restaurant has a lovely ambience and is very romantic. The service is great - friendly, efficient but unobtrusive. The food is wonderful - I would recommend the pumpkin soup and the venison. The wine list is the size of the Yellow Pages so we asked for a recommendation - there's something for everyone covering all budgets.
Overall, an exceptional restaurant which we will be visiting again.
Great value weekend prize fixe lunch. Lovely restaurant busy with a good atmosphere, will definitely go back
This was really a magical place to eat.
We hade a fantastic time, great food, good service and one of the most romantic places we have ever dined at.
If you know anyone who's been to this restaurant, you'll have had their recommendation. If you've been there before you'll go back. If neither of those applies to you, I urge you to book a table at Clos Maggiore. It was recommended to us by a friend and the standard never drops. Fabulous food and service.
Perfect anniversary meal
Clos Maggiore is the perfect restaurant for a special occasion or romantic evening. The conservatory is beautiful, definitely deserves the award of the most romantic restaurant in London.
The food is wonderful, and the wine even better. The service was great - really attentive without feeling like we were being rushed. It isn't cheap, but for the experience it's definitely worth it.
