    Young crowd for late night bar scene. Food delicious but portion size pretty small - no bread; actually left hungry and would probably look to order more appetizers/sides on next visit. The bar at 11p is packed - young and over-lubricated.

    We selected this restaurant based on Open Table reviews. We were attending an event at NYU and selected Margaux for the location as well as the reviews. We entered the restaurant through the bar, which had a sophisticated crowd in a comfortable setting. The service was excellent and the food delicious. I had a lovely chicken dish and fabulous roasted cauliflower. We will definitely return.

    My partner and I celebrated our one-year anniversary here on a Sunday evening at 9:30pm, and I cannot recommend Margaux more highly for a special occasion. The food was delicious - we shared the country bread and beet chips for starters; he had a tortellini dish, and I the mussels; we shared panna cotta and chocolate budino for dessert. The waiter was incredibly helpful with recommending wine to go with our meal. The waiter and host were friendly, insightful, and warm. From the porcelain to the leather banquettes, the decor at Margaux is cozy and romantic. I would come back here with a group of friends and share appetizers and drinks in one of the booths.

    Although the ambiance is very nice, the waitstaff is subpar and our waiter was not only a little off but kept coming to the table to pressure us to order drinks and then food when we hadn't even looked at the menu yet. The crudite, understandably something small, was literally 5 vegetable sticks on a plate. The food would have been amazing although my fish was cold and the potatoes were not cooked. Would I try it again? Yes, but it might take time.

    The food at Margaux was pretty good - it was really the extraordinarily slow service in a fairly empty restaurant that annoyed me. I came in with a friend and waited about 25 minutes before the waiter came to take a food order. A large group came in about 25 minutes after we sat and ended up getting served before I did -- annoying. Not sure if the waiter was waiting us out, trying to get us to order more alcohol to pad the bill, since it was a slow night; regardless, it should not have been a two hour ordeal start to finish when there were only 3-4 other tables in the entire restaurant!

    The food was perfect. We dined on halloween eve, the staff were costumed and festive but still professional. They have a very strong old fashioned on tap, i'll give it a point for novelty but I wish I ordered wine instead. We had the steak, short ribs, and grilled octopus. All perfectly made. They could do without the fake plants in the solarium..

    I had several really pleasant and delicious meals at Margaux over the summer, but my most recent experience there was much less satisfying. The service, starting with the hostess, was rude and unfriendly and inattentive, the new menu is overpriced and the $30+ entrees arrived unaccompanied by anything resembling a vegetable or other complement. So overall an unpleasant dining experience at too high of a price.

    This was our first visit and we were very impressed. The bar area is popular and New York trendy. Restaurant area is more rustic in style but attractive nonetheless. We were particularly impressed with the food. The menu is quite creative with a number of attractive options for the vegetarian. We particularly enjoyed the Farmers plate and the chicken was beautifully prepared. Wine choices were good and service was impeccable. Highly recommended

    The scene outranked the food and avoid the farmer's board/dips. The Turkish seasoned chicken was heavily seasoned, but certainly palatable/good. Would recommend the bar scene over the dining room for your visit here.

    The back room is horrendous. The music is lound and the sound of chatter overwhelming. It is more than unpleasant. The from room is far better. I have dined there three times and have found the food excellent. Service is great too. I would inform a friend to not get placed in the back room.

    The bar and setup is very cool, however, it was very empty on Sunday night for dinner. We were one of 3 or 4 tables in the whole restaurant. The food was great, the service was horrible. I imagine it might pick up on other nights but for a quiet dinner it was a nice spot in the city. The bar is usually crowded but the restaurant less-so.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
