Small portions, unfortunately. A
gorgeous setting in an old New York setting. Excellent service, but pastas are tasteless even when supposedly served with lobster or octopus. Noise becomes a problem as the time gets later, even tho tables are a nice distance away from one another."

Brilliant for a romantic treat
night or for a fun group dinner - excellent cocktails, wine and ambiance. Will def go back in the winter for fireside wine"

the server was quite friendly, the
backyard was quite charming for a restaurant in "that block". However the dishes were totally over-priced. My Hlibut was $42, it tasted more like a $22 ... Good Luck !!!"

Food was very good. Would
recommend asking for the back room. Very pretty with a garden feel."

Great selection of fresh,
innovative, yummy dishes, from appetizers to small plates to entrees. Carefully prepared, everything we had was delicious! The enclosed patio is lovely."

Very limited lunch menu, and only
two desserts were available. Service was slow despite the fact that the restaurant was almost empty."

food was fantastic--tables were a
little small to put all of the plates on so a bit uncomfortable, but would definitely go back! We wanted to order several appetizers and then decide on our entrees, but were told all had to be ordered together. So we opted for just the appetizers--not a good practice for building the business."

Food really good. Great drinks.
Sat in enclosed garden area which was very pleasant and maybe quieter than indoors."

The hotel Martlton has been hit
since it opened. This was our first time actually dining in Margaux and in any wait to go back. Wonderful cocktails started the evening and yummy desserts completed it. In between were farm fresh vegetables prepared beautifully (cauliflower custard!) and perfectly cooked fish. If you like a burger try it out. Comes with a heap of curly fries. Honestly can't wait to go back. With the usual crowds in the Hamptons reservations are a bit easier to come by."

I've had a table for 2 for dinner
on a packed Friday night and I've had a table for 5 for brunch on a calm Sunday and both times the service and food were outstanding. They were even accomodating enough to email me a copy of the brunch menu because it wasn't posted online at the time."

They've done a fantastic job with
the space, and the cocktail and appetizer menu is perfect. Still need to work on the execution of the rest of the menu--and be careful not to let the 'scene' overshadow the charm."

Very disappointed. Food was good
but portions were small and pricey. Service was not great either. Bar looked great however for a drink late afternoon or evening."
Dined on 6/8/2014
Overall the food, service, and
ambiance was great. My only complaint is that we were charged for bread (and not only once but twice) and a more expensive glass of wine than I ordered. I would go back, but I would be much more clear to ask to make sure that anything we thought was complimentary truly was."

Very nice atmosphere, gets quite
loud, but to be expected at popular place. Food was good but pasta portions SMALL. My risotto came on a plate, not even a shallow bowl. My pal's pasta was small too. We were really hungry afterwards! Went to Otto down the block for a pizza. On the other hand, the portion of burrata was a bit much - too much for such a rich dish, not enough figs. I think when you order prosecco that they should tell you it's cava too. There is a difference."

Seated immediately, service was
very quick. Seemed 10 minutes after ordering the food appeared. A bit snobby but not overly and very efficient in serving and cleaning up. Will return, for sure."

In the loud, dark diner-like
atmosphere, the food served was a disappointment. the one vegetarian dish arrived with a lot of sauce and besides the 5 peapods that looked like a garnish, the remaining ingredients were all white potatoes (i had specifically asked the waiter which vegetables were in the dish and he said he did not know). the menu is a carb and meat fest, overpriced for the quality. the best part is that by the time you're done there may actually be a cute table in a corner of the lounge where a real fire burns and the 70s atmosphere greets both tourists staying at the hip hotel and locals looking to hang."

My husband and I had stopped by
Hotel Marlton for drinks one evening and loved the atmosphere. Great cocktails, too. Decided to try Margaux for dinner. We had a lovely experience. Again, those excellent cocktails paved the way! The food was tasty, though nothing was amazing for this level of ambition and price. The cauliflower puree with crispy kale was quite nice, as was the roasted chicken and asparagus/mushroom risotto. Beet salad also good, as were the desserts--a chocolate cake with interesting crumbles and a blueberry pastry in a flaky crust. Service was relaxed and very friendly. This is a great place to kick back and enjoy the evening."

Signature dishes were
disappointing. Lamb meatballs & cauliflower appetizer were tasteless. Scallops served with mushroom sottoaceto did not compliment the celery root purée. A big let down having read the glowing review in The Daily News. The only positive was they offered complimentary "bottled house water" Really!"

We went there for valentines day.
Read some reviews on Yelp that were less then flattering, but they couldn't be more wrong. The service was amazing and attentive. The food was delicious. All in all we had a wonderful experience. Not on bad thing to say at all. We would go back 100% (and plan to)"

Service was friendly and
attentive, food was excellent. We started with the lamb meatballs, which were great. My boyfriend had the lamb and couldn't get enough. Bar and restaurant were packed, cocktails were very different and tasty. The whole place had a good energy and vibe. The only negative was that I had noted on my reservation (and then called twice to follow up) to be sat in the garden area. When we got there, they sat us a table in the main part of the restaurant. I was totally disappointed....then I asked if we could sit in the garden and we were able to move - there were actually several empty tables in that area, yet they sat us right next to the kitchen. They obviously didn't see the notes in our reservation for preferences."

At some point I'm sure it'll get
super popular, but for now it's a nice little find with an original menu and a great atmosphere."

the food was great! We had asked
the chef's name and was told that John cooked our food and it was fantastic!"

Perfect place to spend the
evening. Great bar to have drinks before and after dinner and restaurant is very buzzy"

Terrific! Inventive menu,
everything beautifully prepared. We tried lots of different things and were really impressed. The room is attractive and comfortable. Service was friendly, attentive, efficient. A truly delightful evening!"

We had a reservation for 4 on 1/25
at 8.15pm. The restaurant called me twice to reconfirm time and date. When we got there we were told by the hostess that they "are really backed up with the reservations", and that we should wait at the bar. We checked every 15 mins or so, and when we asked how much longer it would take, the standard answer was: "soon", or "10-15mins". They also said they are backed up because of the weather, which does not make sense, and seemed more like a convenient excuse. Then we were told that a celebrity showed up which caused all reservations to be delayed. We got seated at 9.45pm, 1.5 hours after our confirmed dinner time. Nobody seemed to care, aplogized, or offered compensation in any way. Food was great."

A very positive experience and
likely to become a great, neighborhood place for casual dining. Excellent service and the food was quite good. Started with the Farmer's Board and the grilled artichokes, followed by the scallops and the cod. Everything tasted fresh, and the flatbreads served with the Farmers board were amazing. Comfortable seating,a nda. Nice buzz in the restaurant itself, as well as in the lounge /bar area. We will definitely go back."

While visiting NYC and staying in
the newly refurbished Marlton Hotel, my NY foodie dining partner and I thought we would give Margaux a try. It's a delightfully charming place, with excellent, attentive service and an excellent and a well thought out, properly diverse menu with a bit of the eclectic. We ordered scallops, roasted chicken and a variety of sides. All were done to perfection, as was the timing for delivery and the charm of our server. All followed with some cocktails by the fire on cozy lounges. The Marlton is my new home away from home, and Margaux is my new fave dining spot when I'm here."
