We were so disappointed after having told the restaurant and phoning to check re garlic allergy. The waitress was abrupt, unhelpful and at points rude.

We had waited months to get together with our friends and this was particularly disappointing as we had recommended the restaurant to them - as it’s unusually our favourite.

The manager sorted the situation very quickly after I spoke to her and was very apologetic. So our evening wasn’t completely ruined.

The food was really average - not what we expected particularly for its cost. The service was really friendly and nice though. Although this restaurant is famous for being the “most romantic” I think the “most” part is a bit exaggerated. Maybe during the winter with the fireplace might be a bit more cosy. Not a restaurant that we will go back again.

We had the pre theatre menu, which was fantastic value including a glass of Prosecco. The food was incredible and the service was even better. The ambience was great and the decor is next level. Will be back.

1. Staff are NOT wearing masks!?!?!? I regret we didn’t walk out straight away!
2. Staff are very poorly trained with bad mannered. Waiters kept interrupting our conversation and kept refilling empty glasses or removing empty plates over us while we’re were still eating!
3. Amal was particularly annoying and ill mannered! Snatched the receipt out of our hands.
4. Food was average at best but at those prices average is just not good enough! The iberico ham starter was a complete disgrace!

To sum up - the worst restaurant we have ever been to. What a disgrace of French food and manners!

It is over 11 years ago since I was in Clos Maggiore - I was not disappointed to return - it was even better than I remembered! A very warm welcome, the staff were Impeccable, courteous but not officious. Lovely ambiance & discreet music playing. We had the pre theatre menu - -3 course fur £35 including a glass of Prosecco & the food was wonderful. Very attentive staff including the Management who just wanted to make sure we were happy - we were & we would thoroughly recommend Clos Maggiore . It certainly won’t be 11 years till I come back - thank you for a lovely evening.

The food is over priced for the portions, the service hit and miss. Limited for vegans. We were cramped in a booth for 6 people (one could not make it) but it was still tight for 5 adults. Wouldn’t go again. Probably a romantic venue for couples.

It was so good to get back to Clos after such a long time, we had been regulars before Covid and we had been so looking forward to it and were not disappointed.
Food, service, and ambiance were first class as we remembered.
The set lunch was of outstanding quality and value.

By far the most amazing restaurant we have ever been to. The service was impeccable, the staff were amazing! The food was out of this world and the recommended wine was so good we ordered another bottle. This restaurant lives up to the highest standards and more! Not to mention it really is the world’s most romantic restaurant. We will definitely be returning. Thank you so much, you made our wedding anniversary so special.

I booked this restaurant as I wanted to treat my mum to a special birthday dinner, and we were not disappointed! We were lucky enough to be seated in the conservatory, which was just so beautiful - the photos online don't do it justice. Everything from the ambience to the service was exceptional, and the sirloin dish with the truffle mash was to die for. My new favourite restaurant for sure. Can't wait to revisit!

Great experience throughout, all courses were sublime. Service was very attentive, nice reception, great venue. One of those places where I don’t think there’s a bad table but the flower room of course tops it all. The kitchen backs the hype up though.

Devastated. We were looking forward to a romantic dinner. Instead, the food was not properly cooked, and one of the other diners (who seemed inebriated) started shouting abuse at us and we had to leave in a rush as staff did not offer any protection. Have tried to contact restaurant afterwards, but they are ignoring us.

It’s is the 2nd time I have been for Lunch in the last month, ordering from their set price menu. The food is very good & the Staff extremely pleasant, they made a particular effort with my Grandson, as we were celebrating his 21st Birthday. I can recommend this Restaurant.

We booked this restaurant for our anniversary after hearing from our friends that it was exceptional and it didn’t disappoint. The decor is both magical and utterly beautiful. The portions are well balanced and the flavours exceptional!! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal there and would highly recommend. The Pre-Theatre menu was great value as it came with a glass of champagne - lucky us. The staff could not have been more attentive, polite or gracious, we had the best time!!

Clos Maggiore is, I think, one of our favourite restaurants. We are so pleased to be able to enjoy, once again, this beautiful restaurant. The food was as good as ever, the service excellent, we had a most enjoyable lunch. If you have never been there, try it, I don’t think you will be disappointed.

20th Anniversary Dinner — so when I made the booking I naivety presumed we’d be well looked after with a nice table (requested).

Waiters were not attentive - waited long time before we had to attract someone’s attention to even give us menus

The waiter was not knowledgeable on what was on offer - even when the menu was not even that extensive.

When the order was taken - no logic to how they went to the people around the table. Eg asked the lady first - then NOT the gentleman but the child. Asked how many of the same starters we wanted and how many of the mains - like we were in some cheap restaurant. Asked what the dish came with and got a response of ‘not a lot other than garnish’

When the plates came to be cleared - we were asked to hand over the dishes as they couldn’t reach !! As opposed to walking around the table and picking them up.


Had to wait for the sommelier was free. He’s the only one who was knowledgeable on wine and menu ! When we asked him - after the main waiter gave a basic description of the deserts


Had to wait to attract the attention again for desert menu.

Definitely not worth the more than £400! I paid.

I did not feel special or made a fuss over at all.

Very disappointed. Felt it was a tourist trap than a high end restaurant establishment.

Regards

Service was great but slow at the end for payment. Risotto was a little to Al-Dente and I am half Italian and I have eaten many dishes of Risotto made by my Italian mother. Overall a lovely experience and would highly recommend.
