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.

I managed to book a very very last minute table and I was not disappointed. The staff were incredible and extremely helpful, I would never call myself a wine connoisseur but after asking, the staff member took 5 minutes out of his time to teach my the quick basics of wine tasting.

Thank you very much for making the wife’s birthday so special.

Really disappointed in the dinning experience, especially after waiting several months for a booking. My partner and I booked a table in the conservatory (which is beautiful) for our anniversary, of which no mention to our special occasion was given by the staff. The friendless, knowledge, and attentiveness of the staff was very poor. The food was very good, especially the rabbit starter, but the mains were not very memorable. Excellent wine list. I feel like the restaurant is overly pretentious without reason and is very over hyped. Would not return. There are much better French restaurant in the London area.

I was dissapointed with the meal at this restaurant. I expected better! My starter felt like it was done yesterday, cold and not interesting... my main was even worse. I ordered turbot, and somehow I either didnt see or it wasnt clear to me that it came with pasta. Stuffed pasta parcels and fish dont go together at all. I also ordered chips to go with this and waiter didnt even advise me that since there is pasta i may want to order a different side.... i had to eat fish and chips, and leave pasta.
desert was just ok too.

Atmosphere is lovely, but for that price (£100 pp) you can find some amazing michelin restaurants in London instead.

I thought the food and service was amazing. I would say the only downside was I'd booked on the day for my girlfriends birthday. On arrival we were told we couldn't sit in the garden area as we had only booked on the day. Which wasn't a massive issues, but it was Information I would rather not share with my other half.

Asian guests pushing past your table constantly to use venue as a photo shoot. Food overpriced and not spectacular. Go once if you want to see it but i would not go back. Not surprised no Michelin star, no where near the quality.

Amazing meal, the attention to detail with each dish was commendable. The presentation and flavours were that of sweet dreams. The staff were friendly.

What spoilt it for us is that we went for our first wedding anniversary, we made a note of this in the booking. They couldn’t seat us in the conservatory area so we were sat at the end of the bar in a corner against a dirty wall (food/wine on it) also we watched others being given complimentary happy birthday / happy anniversary desserts and there was nothing for us. Lastly the whole thing felt a bit rushed, we had our aperitif, starter and main plus a Demi bottle of wine within the first hour as the service for each course was super quick so we were too full to order pudding. I know the booking is two hours but we didn’t get to enjoy it as much as we could have.

The overall atmosphere in the place is lovely and I would recommend it but seating definitely makes a difference here.

We didn’t manage to get s table in the beautiful conservatory & were seated upstairs
It was ok but a bit like an old fashioned ‘Gentleman’s Club’
Bit stuffy with dire jazz style ‘lift music’
You could easily recreate the great vibe that you have downstairs! Flowers, lights, beautiful!!
Capitalise on what is a fantastic unique feature of your restaurant
