Despite booking, and the restaurant being very quiet, we were pointedly ignored in favour of other diners, hence after quarter of an hour we left - no apology. Don’t know the reason. Excellent service and food at the Dahlia across the road.

The evening and dinner at Margaux was perfection from the moment we entered the restaurant to the last bite of dessert.

New lunch menu (as of July 2019) offers a wider variety of quality options at a very reasonable price. Service is friendly and fast.

My spouse and I enjoyed a quiet evening dining in Margaux. Our only concern is the annoying marquis sign across the street, "CINERAMA". It makes no sense at all to have that sign facing the hotel when it should be facing up and down the street instead. This same sign also comes into play in our room, 311. Probably not much you can do except to ask the owners to re-align it.

My salad was limp and soggy. Fish and chips were mediocre. Décor felt old and tired. My partner thought his food was meh (Caesar salad, salmon entrée). Apple tart was not good, but the ice cream on the side was very good. On the upside, this was a quiet restaurant, which gets harder and harder to find these days.

I was with three friends. While my selection was very well-prepared and tasty, they all rated theirs as so-so, acceptable, good, but nothing special.

Made online reservations for breakfast to find out that they were closed for a special event. They were very nice though and sat us in the lobby area so we can still have breakfast. Service was OK only because we were separated. The waiter tried to check on us as much as she could. The food totally made up for the experience. It was a great breakfast. Everything was cooked perfectly.

Thank you for being flexible on timing for our large party and for treating our out of town guests with class and style. Margaux is one of the hidden gems in Seattle.

My kids and I were served rancid French toast. I ended up puking all day and had to cut our trip short and come home early. They took the charges off our check so that was good but it doesn’t make up for how sick I got. We made it back to Portland and I wasn’t able to get out of bed except to go to the bathroom for 2 days. Do not recommend.

There were a few red flags from the get go...there was no one in the restaurant when we checked in. Then when I ordered my classic cocktail they didn’t know what it was so I quickly changed it to a gin and tonic. When our drinks were delivered the poor waiter accidentally knocked over my water glass all over me. Fortunately the well worn polyester napkin on my lap rescued my clothes and only my shoes were a bit damp. He profusely apologized and brought a towel to help clean up and then comped us dessert. Too bad the dessert was undercooked as a Granny Smith Apple crumble.

So what was good? The bread and butter were amazing. My gin and tonic was decent. The salmon was nicely cooked. The waiter was very sweet. But it was not enough for a return visit.

Before discussing the food, let's just consider the 4% service charge that is NOT shared with staff. JUST INCREASE THE LISTED PRICES BY 4% INSTEAD OF BEING SO SHADY! I knew it was coming, but it is such an insult to not share a service charge with the service staff. That alone is enough reason to never return. Though, we were given plenty of reason to stay away. The corned beef "hash" was awful. Chunks of beef that were too acidic paired with a tangy hollandaise stung mouths cut up from stale bread toasted to the point of being painful to eat. The potatoes in the "hash" were undercooked. And both the meat and potatoes were cut too large to get a mix of both in a single bite. For the crab benedict, the crab was completely overpowered by the hollandaise. I ordered an orange juice and never received it.

I took a party of 8 here for a business dinner. Food, drinks, dessert were all very good. Our waiter appeared to be THE waiter for the bar and restaurant, so there was a bit of waiting around. Other than that, excellent.

We had been to Margaux before but it had been a while. We started with French Onion soup and a wedge salad which were both excellent. My wife had the ribeye and I had the seafood paella. My wife's steak was cooked just how she likes it and my paella was delicious. The snap peas on both of our plates were fresh and delicious. Our server was knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. The lone blotch on the night was this out of date/stock wine list when we settled on the 4th wine we ordered.

Really enjoyed this place with my husband for our anniversary. So we invited our daughter and her boyfriend to join us our second time dining here before we went to the theater.
Love the food and the ambiance.
We highly recommend this place.

We had lunch here on a rainy day right after Thanksgiving. We got there at 12:15pm. There were no people eating in there. We were the only people the whole time we were there. We had perfect service.
My husband had mussels and I had the kabobs. Everything was delicious. I don't know why no one was there because its very good food moderately priced for the city. It is part of the Warwick Hotel, maybe that is why?

The hostess/waitress did not acknowledge our reservation (we were celebrating a birthday and left instructions at the time of reservation) and never addressed the celebrant or did anything special for him.

She was pregnant so I excused the slow service but I will not excuse her being rude and indifferent.

This was our first visit to Margaux. We have been in Seattle all of our lives. We went for Seattle Restaurant Week. An appetizer we chose on the SRW menu was not available. Food was mediocre.
The Manager and wait person were excellent and understood our frustration with the appetizer not available and comped us dessert.
Sorry, the food was not good.

We went to Margaux for Restaurant Week and enjoyed the 3-course meal very much. The portion size was very generous and the presentation and quality of the food was excellent. I liked the quiet ambience since we wanted to catch up and it's nice to be able to speak and not yell at each other. We will definitely be back to go to this restaurant again!

The food and service was nice! But my boyfriend and I were the only 2 people in the restaurant, and we spent some time there...honestly that kind of killed the vibe for me. We were trying to have a romantic night but the choice of music they were playing was terrible! It’s a shame because the waitress was friendly and attentive and the food was quite good.

Food was good but our waitress was awful! She came over to get our drink order and asked 3 people and then left. When she came back we told her we wanted drinks too. Her response “oh you seemed hesitant so” are you kidding me!? She had a rude attitude the rest of the night!

Food was AMAZING, staff was okay. Our waitress was attentive, which was very nice. But even with a reservation there was no one at the entrance when we arrived, so we didn't know if we seated ourselves or... So we sat down and the bartender yelled at us from across the dining area asking if we were told to sit there, we say no and she says to go back to the door and wait... so we do... Our server comes out and apologized saying we can sit wherever we would like since they weren't busy.

Food was AMAZING though, totally worth the $$

The food was not great and the price was on the high end. I felt like there are so many other good restaurants in this area that they should step up their game. Especially since we paid $80 for the two of us and we did not even order drinks. You can get better food and service at a decent price at any of the other places around. Don't waste your money.
