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.

Private Dining

The Private Dining Room at Clos Maggiore is the perfect setting for lunch and dinner parties whether for business purposes or special occasions. The room is beautifully decorated with wood panelled walls and tones of warm ochre.

I booked this for my partner’s birthday about a month in advance, and we were seated in the beautiful and intimate room upstairs.

The waiter who served us made it an exceptional experience and was happy to make recommendations when we asked. He was attentive and efficient. The food was delicious with generous portions. We almost didn’t have space for dessert.

I was impressed with the staff from start to finish. My reservation was confirmed 3 days prior and I was informed where we would be seated. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful. I will definitely come back here and will try and book early enough to sit in the fabled conservatory (however I would happily sit where we sat today, again)

Excellent service in lovely surroundings and a meal that was excellent value for money. My lamb was a little bit stringy, but my wife was very happy with hers - we all(5) had a super evening and will be back. Well done and thank you.

We were a group of 5, came to celebrate a 40th Birthday party. We been promised a birthday cake and 2 hours dinning time from 17:30 to 19:30. We been pushed for time and it was reduced to 1:30 hour because they had to prepare the table for the next guests. We took 1 hour 45 minutes therefore they couldn't serve us the cake which was very disappointing . When we were leaving at 19:15 the restaurant was empty apart from a couple who was dining at the same time with us. The food only looked good. My daughter was gagging while eating the food. Unfortunately our Birthday celebration did not end well.

We used to love coming here however the level of service is now really poor, arrogant staff too. Food is ok but not fabulous like it used to be. We won’t be back because it’s just not an enjoyable evening out any more

Understanding that we are the last minute (2 day in advance) booking, but it doesn’t become the reason that we have to sit near the entrance, next to the bar.

There could be a warning or reminder for it. Nevertheless, as a restaurant that sells on its dining environment, it should never take on bookings when they know there is a huge difference of dining experience from the expectation. This is catering 101.

I have been to many fine dining restaurants and this is obviously one of the worst experiences.

Food is average.

It was my boyfriend’s birthday and it was our first time dining here. We were lucky enough to have gotten a table in the conservatory. I definitely suggest asking for a table in there. It’s stunning and the atmosphere in there is lovely! The food was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We will definitely be going again in the future.

Lovely sunny day in London highlighted by delicious lunch! The service was impeccable yet friendly as well not stuffy. I noted all staff had smiles throughout the afternoon! Not to mention the delicious food and of course the ambience. No worries if not in the conservatory- we enjoyed immensely just adjacent.

Clos Maggiore is everything myself and my partner dreamt it would be. The food was delicious, the atmosphere wonderful and the service exemplary. We visited for our 3 year anniversary in February, something I had booked 3-4 months prior. I would suggest anybody to do the same if you want to be seated in the conservatory area as I'm not sure the experience would have been the same were we seated elsewhere. If you have been please give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

Clos Maggiore, I have been told of many great experiences. The experience I had with my friend, however, was not as I expected. Obscure service, the table we had was extremely cramped and probably should not be in the restaurant - possibly take it out. The food was good, nothing to shout about.. I will be back to try again.

Sunday lunch for our anniversary - what a treat! Conservatory was beautiful with a flower canopy and the open fire set the place apart. Great food, but didn’t taste the wine. Had options for vegan which weren’t bad either.

Faultless. Firstly the setting was even nicer than I'd imagined, warmer and more intimate. It was our anniversary and we were given a corner table in the conservatory. Pre-theatre menu was excellent, as was the attentive and expert service. Can't wait to return.

Food was good but not amazing, they’re not as good as they think they are - this applies to the pricing as well as the quality of the food. A little obnoxious and staff were condescending. If you’re not seated in the conservatory you could be in any restaurant. This was for a special occasion and it just wasn’t very special. Apart from the berry stinger cocktail whose taste and appearance WAS really special. Disappointing overall.

Overall great food, service and ambience. There was not one ne item we were unhappy with but found overall a little expensive especially around sides and wine.

Loved the truffle soup, pigeon salad and my wife love the sauce that went with her sea bream.

Could not fault service at all which was friendly and efficient from both a service and food delivery and timing.

So great our friends have already rebooked for a couple of months time
