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.

Lunch with 3 friends, Clos Maggiore was new to them though I have been before. We all enjoyed it. Good value for money. Love the effort the team there put into decorating the restaurant for the seasons.

Very good service and they managed to provide a table in the conservatory area and I was willing to wait for a bit.

Food was delicious and wine selection was great.

Very impressed with the atmosphere and the service.

Clos Maggiore is a charming restaurant with a concise but comprehensive menu. It is not inexpensive but I think it is good value. The wine list had an excellent range of wines with a price range suitable for everyone.

I found that we were given excellent service. The wait staff was helpful. When in London, I will return.

Beautiful restaurant with incredible food. My boyfriend had the veal and said it was the best veal he has ever had. We also got the cheese platter which had the best cheeses we have ever had (and we frequently get cheese plates).

We were seated by the top of the stairs by the bar for a pre theatre meal on a Monday. We had the continual rushing of staff brushing past our table. Two staff were having a disagreement and making it known and drawing our attention to them. After being served some bread with tongues from a member of staff he then went on to pinch another member of staffs hand with it and then he kicked him back in retaliation. Overall this was a very poor experience and would not recommend this restaurant on this basis.

Gorgeous restaurant and fabulous service. Such a shame we had to go there for their final sitting at 22:30pm post theatre. They were all so charming and didn’t rush us at all despite being the last diners there. Must return again when we can properly enjoy the experience

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)

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.

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.
