We had the pre-theatre menu which was excellent value. The food was so elegant and refined. I felt like I was receiving a piece of art on a plate. A little chicken dish with crispy skin on the side etc etc. I could go on and on as it was outstanding cheffery (if that is a word). Amazing service, quiet, confident and friendly. I’ve booked this Restaraunt many times before for my boss. It never disappoints and always amazes guests. We had a terrific time on our first outing back to London. Thank you Clos Maggiore.

Tasty food with nice presentation but small portions - especially starter which was mostly beetroot so not high cost food. Two of the three waiters pleasant, main one sadly very superior and unfriendly. Glad to have tried but will not visit again.

Who can comment negatively about the ambience? food was ok but not up these prices. Service was incompetent, they forgot to bring menus and also they did not treat us a birthday surprise, they gave to other customers, I could not ask for it, they supposed to remember. I am sure you can find better restaurants for this price level.

This has been one of my favourite restaurants for years and I've always highly recommended it to family and friends, not only because it's delicious but also because everything is always perfect.

I'll be honest my main complaint is the change in menu, I feel as though there is not a good variety as the previous menu. Including that the portion sizes have decreased greatly. I think the menu being changed pretty much completely was a shock. There is not enough warm starters, which was quite disappointing, being that the rabbit starter was my favourite and to no longer see it on the menu was quite sad.

On the contrary, the service, the staff and the ambient remain all perfect and I have no complaints.

This is indeed a lovely restaurant to go to, although I'm not sure if it will be a go to for me anymore due to the change in menu.

Regardless, we still had a beautiful evening as the service is always outstanding.

Absolutely fantastic service, experience, staff, and of course, food and drinks. Anthony gave us such a personal service as did everyone else. We have never had a bad experience here and find ourselves coming back every season where we celebrate all our special occasions, what better place to celebrate with such beautiful decor and amazing service!

Such beautiful food! We had the 3 course lunch for £39.99 and it was very good value for such amazing food. The portions might be considered small but I personally loved that I didn't feel I'd eaten too much after the three course and some petit fours. Would definitely eat here next time I am in London.

Enjoyed our meal very much. Only downside was that we were virtually on our own in the restaurant. Can't blame that on the restaurant itself because obviously they want the restaurant as full as possible but it did affect the ambiance.

Lovely to be back and the new chef is excellent the food was just brilliant and the service and attention to detail was as ever top draw. i missed the selection on the fixed menu for the weekend choice it used to be 6 starters, 6 main and around 6 desserts now 3, 3 and 3 which is a shame. don't mind the glass of bubbles instead of the half bottle of wine and still excellent value just bring back the larger selection for Saturday lunchtime dining. thank you again, wonderful .

Clos Maggiore are without the Head Chef who gave the restaurant its fantastic reputation. He recently left after 15 years at the helm. It's clear that this has affected the food quality drastically. The food was non-descript and the portion size painfully on the small size. From being my favourite restaurant to now a shadow of itself.

A very first world problems review -

We were in the cheap seats next to the bar, despite having asked repeatedly to be in the conservatory. These tables felt almost like an after thought, tucked away from.. well... everything. Whilst I appreciate, everyone wants to be in the main room, the waitress just shrugged and said “we get that request a lot”. Which basically set the scene for the evening.

The food was delicious, though the lobster, slightly under seasoned. Everything else was perfect, including the cheese plate.

The staff were, on the attentive, but could have been more on it, considering the price point.

For ~200 GBP per person, it was an underwhelming experience.

There are nicer places to go in London to be honest.

We had dinner for my girlfriends birthday. The table was in the conservatory which was beautiful and much smaller and more intimate than we’d thought, which was great. The food was delicious, albeit quite expensive, and the same goes for the wine - we had some good recommendations and it was very pleasant but did feel a bit overpriced. Our biggest disappointment was that we’d seen the tasting menu advertised online, and nowhere did it say that it wasn’t being offered at the moment - so when we arrived looking forward to the tasting menu and were told it wasn’t being offered it did put quite a downer on the evening which was a real shame. I wouldn’t rush back here, even though I am glad I came and everything was good, but just a shame about the tasting menu and the high prices.
