Neighborhood gem, national treasure
Awesome food, great service. Large portions. The unusual fare always is a delight as they use the freshest ingredients possible. Don't overlook the Soup of the Moment as the chefs combine unusual flavors to create some unique but tasty treats. It is tucked in a strip mall but once past the doors, you enter another world at another era.

A must do... put it on your list. The food is fantastic. The wait staff is excellent and they all help one another so you aren't just sitting there waiting. If your plate is empty and someone is walking by, they clean off the plates.

Great food and atmosphere
A great local spot that has excellent food and surprising atmosphere for being in a strip mall. It's our go-to spot for a nice meal without having to travel downtown.

Can't wait to return
The food was presented beautifully and the taste out of this world. The staff was friendly and came by often to make sure our water glasses were filled.

Gaux to Margaux
My wife and I had wanted to "gaux to Margaux" for a long time. We did, and we were not disappointed. The food and service were excellent. We sat indoors and were glad since there was a party of cigar smokers in the outdoor dining area. There is somewhere for everybody at Margaux.

I went for restaurant week for the first time. The service was VERY impressive. There was always someone around to flag down if you need and the food was quickly served as well.The decor inside was impressive, kind of like when someone goes traveling and brings back something really cool from each place.
The food was pretty good. Their homemade bread and french onion soup were REALLY good. The entrees changes every day so it's a little pointless for me to talk about what I got too much but my main dish was a shrimp pasta which tasted a little burnt/bitter. However, my friend's steak was really good so maybe my dish was an odd ball.
I didn't fall in love but I'm glad I went at least once to try it. Maybe I'll give it another try later.

If not for the attitude of
If not for the attitude of my waiter, would have been a great experience. Waiter was pompous and condescending.

Great Date Night
My husband and I often eat at Margaux"s and always love it. The menu is diverse, the wine selection impressive and the service is always impeccable. One of our favorite Date Night choices!!

My husband and I decided to go to Margauxs for our 13th wedding anniversary. We had not been there in about eleven years. It was fabulous. It was a Monday night and we choose the prix fix dinner. All of the courses were amazing. I had the crab cake, the tilapia and banana pound cake. My husband had the lobster curry soup, the salmon and key lime pie. Plus I had the Snikerlini martini and that could have been a dessert it self. The restaurant was relatively quiet but not from the lack of patrons. Our waitress was very respectful of our time and answered every question my husband had. I would definitely recommend Margauxs for any occasion. My husband and I will not wait so many years to go back!

We had a wonderful time
Great food, great service, highly recommend! We enjoyed our evening, and were glad our theater tickets necessitated an early Saturday night reservation; by the time we left, the noise level had risen to be almost annoying.

good "go-to" restaurant
Always find the food and service very good. Nice selection of NC fresh fish on the menu. Decent and varied wine list. can always count on a good time here. Very contemporary environment.

Margaux's is a Raleigh must do. The daily changes to the menu keep things interesting. On this particular experience, I enjoyed the pick three menu and my friend tried kangaroo. We've also had elk and boar on previous trips. The service is always friendly and elegant. It can be a little noisy in there due to the exciting ambiance of the restaurant, but it's a great place to take friends for a fun night out and a guaranteed delicious and different dining experience.

Hot Spot for 25 and up
Wish there were more, especially near Falls of the Neuse .

What a neighborhood gem!
I would have mixed emotions about recommending Margaux's because the food, service, and ambiance are absolutely superb. The reason I have mixed emotions is that is it can stand as one of the Triangle's or even the Southeast's best restaurants, but if it is too well known, the North Raleigh 'locals' may have a harder time finding a table. As for the food, the dishes are prepared using de jour ingredients, mixed with an eclectic mix of surprising flavor combinations. Portions will leave even the hungry man stuffed. The fish(es) of the day are all prepared perfectly so that the native flavor is not hidden under sauces, but intensified by the delightful mix of spices. This trip, I had the Mahi Mahi served over a port wine She-Crab Soup. WOW!!!

Fine food and leftovers to boot!
Anyone travelling or living in N. Raleigh ought to stop by this spot. The food was excellent and though the prices are a little on the high side, you get what you pay for in quality and quantity. A defininte return is in order.

Nice patio dining
Inside at Margeaux's seemed to be a little stuffy, and we chose to dine on the patio, admittedly very lucky to take advantage of a mild August evening. We satisfied ourselves with a couple of appetizers. The fresh Vietnamese rolls were fabulous, and included some very nice Asian slaw. The sushi was also wonderful. A slice of key lime pie on a very thick graham crust was a perfect end tothisnlight meal.

best deal in town
The "during the week" early bird special is the best deal in town.
Excellent food and service - menu with a wide variety of choices.
I had the coconut/corn soup (first rate) cordoba - and bread pudding. My wife - the crabcake - baseball steak and I forget the dessert. All 6 choices were excellent.
Service - friendly - and attentive. Big plus - seating is very comfortable.

Tasty Food with Good Service
We chose from the 3 course prix fixe selections. We each chose the crab cake for the 1st course and found it attractively served and enjoyed it and the accompanying remoulade sauce served on the side. The breaded tilapia was served right from grill and was excellent. My wife ordered the shrimp with penne pasta, spinach, and a mild, tasty tomato sauce. Our 3rd course choices were a pleasing key lime pie topped attractively with delicious raspberry & vanilla sauces drizzled across the the pie and a delicious strawberry ice cream sandwich with light sugar cookies as the top & bottom of the sandwich. Overall, a very enjoyable 1st-time dining experience.

Great food at a moderate price
Great food at a moderate price
The ambiance was excellent and the servrs werevery responsive. The quality of the food was also excellent. The grouper was outstanding and my guest truly enjoyed the duck. He said that it was the best he had ever had!
I would strongly recommend this restaurant and will go back when in Raleigh! My brother, who lives in Raleigh, will surely go back!

Why did we wait so long?
Margaux's has been on my "need to try list' for some time, too long. The service was spot on, we shared the duck crepe starter and the Lamb shank entree, both were excellent. We will be back soon.

My S.O. and I ate dinner there on September 7th. It We both enjoyed their nightly special cocktail, a blueberry mojito. I started with a Romaine Salad with chicory, endive, tomatoes, bacon bits, onions & blue cheese. It I then had their Nut Crusted Black Grouper with Meyer lemon thyme cream, jumbo lump crabmeat & red bliss mash and my S.O. had my barber's recommended Carolina Flounder Stuffed with bacon N shrimp, creamed corn & cheddar cheese sauce. Our plates were totally empty when our cordial waitress, Jessica, cleared them. For dessert, I endulged in a caramel apple bread pudding and my S.O. had their three-scoop sorbet with mango, blueberry, and strawberry. I have placed Margaux's on my "to return" list for sure.

3 course dinner deal a winner
Margaux's has always had an excellent reputation and this pre 6:30 dinner deal didn't disappoint.

Always a Treat...
Visit Raleigh once a year for football games. Always visit Margaux's at least once for a great meal.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Reliable in all aspects.....
Impressive is the first word I thought of when entering Margaux's.
The atmosphere was warm, the staff welcoming and efficient. Within a few minutes of being seated, our waitress introduced herself and asked for drink orders.
The wine list was pricey but gave some decent wines at the lower end. We ordered a bottle and the wine service was competent.
Appetizers all arrived at the same time and were excellent. We had Calamari and Zucchini Blossoms, which are an unusual offering. The main courses were Duck, and 2 fish entrees. Promptly served after appetizers were removed. We never felt rushed, never ignored. This staff is well trained.
I will definitely visit Margaux again when I return to Raleigh. It is absolutely worthy of its reputation.

My husband and I recently tried this restaurant for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it! I would definitely recommend this place to friends.

We entertained visiting family at Margaux's. Our server was outstanding! She took time to answer everyone's questions regarding the menu and was attentive throughout the dining experience.

Great Food, Sloooow Service
The food was great; creative and unusual. I had the calf liver and it was delicious. My wife had the tuna which was perfect. However, the service was very slow. The server had too many tables to work and the helpers managed to deliver the wrong appetizer. We waited a very long time for our appetizer and no one checked with us during the wait.

We tried the tuna and as usual
We tried the tuna and as usual it was delicious. This restaurant continues to be one of our favorites in the area.
