We had the most incredible dinner here for my partner's birthday last night. We had the cod and the mushroom parpadelle, both of which were exquisite. The waiter also brought out a plate with Happy Birthday written on it and a few treats for my...More

I can't recommend this restaurant enough. Went with my husband a few weeks back, after a few months of us work working non-stop and not spending enough time together. We ordered the seasonal tasting menu which, at £65, is extremely worthwhile and delicious. I can't...More

We came here with reservations way in advance to ensure we could seat at the glass roof area shown in many pictures. We were told it’s still difficult to reserve, despite our reservation being one of the latest possible reservations. Upon arriving, we did get...More

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.
