We arrived pretty much on time as the reservation, our table was waiting for us. The waiter was excellent, ambience was just as I like it, quiet enough where we could hear all those at our table. Even though it was a slow night for them, our night was memorable.
Portions are small, but good enough for lunch. Very tasty, however.
We spent our last night in Seattle having dinner in this restaurant. Seems like an old-school steak house kind of place, which was fine with us. I'm not a wine expert, but my partner is, and said their wine list is lacking. The Old Fashioned on the other hand, was just fine. All three of them :)
When I was lost because Mapquest print out and Google Maps directions on iPhone were wrong and I called your restaurant, an employee gave me wrong information on how to drive to your location and how to get home. It took me 90 minutes to drive from the Rep Theatre near Seattle Center to your restaurant. I was exhausted after driving round and round in circles because 5th Ave and many downtown streets were blocked off as well as some streets had do not turn left signs and no one could help me find alternate route. It made me feel like I never again want to go to any event or restaurant in Seattle.
$42.00 p/p buffet; lg variety ; fresh salads, fairly average entrees but well prepared, desserts good , not impressive. mimosa's $10., would like to have seen more specially priced beverages with the brunch. we arrived 2:00 pm, brunch closed 3:00 pm. maybe 1 other party there, maintenance worker arrived then with big commercial mop bucket, I brought it up, then they removed it, odd! even tho brunch nearly over, buffet pans/platters were full,attractive & fresh. wait staff setting around made us feel like they were waiting fou us to leave. BEST baked salmon!
We had a 10:30 reservation for a brunch that wouldn't be served until 11. Then, the manager ran around in front of all the guests barking orders at her slow staff and being generally unprofessional. The chef, also, did not seem to have a sense of urgency to get things going by 11. There were no beverages included in the $42 buffet price (WAY overpriced). Lastly, the food was sub par at best and they kept running out of dishes and were unable to replenish quickly. I would never go back and would never recommend this restaurant.
Everything from the caesar salad to dessert was outstanding! Nice touches, perfectly cooked salmon, very attentive waiter. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Margaux!
Came here because we have a restaurant.com voucher. Glad we did. The food was very good and reasonably priced with good variety. The wine list is small but decent and again very reasonably priced. The restaurant was clean and the wait staff attentive. All in all a pleasurable experience.
We used to stay at the Warwick several times a year before the hotel became 100% smoke free and have dined at Margaux several times in the past. We always enjoyed the warm, old world feel to the room and have had meals ranging from OK to very good. On a recent visit to Seattle, even though we were staying at Homewood Suites, we decided to revisit Margaux after reading some very positive reviews. Thankfully, the room remains the same and has not been remodelled with stone, steel & glass as so many other restaurants have been. Our french onion soup and clam chowder were very good. We both chose the lamb shank which was very tender and properly cooked, but the spatzle was absolutely drowned in the sauce or au juice and the brussel sprouts were very bitter. Our server, Fernando, was very efficient and friendly, but over-all, the meal was a bit of a disappointment. The music track being played on the evening we were there was a little too jazzy for our taste, but might appeal to others, and thankfully, it wasn't blaring as so many restaurants tend to do.
Asma is number 1 server! Lunch crowd is getting big. Word is out!
My husband and I were in Seattle for a concert and dined at Margaux. Our waitperson was personable and charming, but never intrusive. The food was marvelous! I ordered the salmon and it was perfect--succulent, tender, flavorful--and I know salmon well because we lived in Alaska for over 25 years. The presentation of the food was beautiful, too, very artistic and appealing.
The total experience, the tranquil setting, the elegant ambiance, the fabulous meal, the lovely wine... it was exactly what I hoped for, and the ideal beginning for an amazing, memorable evening.
Thank you, Margaux!
I don't eat out at high end restaurants as much as I used to because so many are just plain disappointing all around. When one spends $100 or more for a meal, the experience that you're paying professionals to provide should always be far better than rolling into a fast food joint. The equivalent difference between shopping at Nordstrom and Walmart, this is rarely the case. However, from start (being greeted promptly when we arrived at 6:55pm for 7:00pm reservations) to finish (personally thanking all of the restaurant staff for an excellent experience as we were leaving) my wife and I can't say enough about how this experience was elevated higher than the Space Needle which is only blocks away.
Our waiter, Fernando, did exactly what he should, respected the fact that we were there to enjoy our meal. He topped the water, gave us ample opportunity to complete each course and never once asked how our food items were. What he did was let us know to feel free to let him know if we needed anything or had any concerns. This is a waiter who has complete confidence in the preparation of our meals, in the chefs, deservedly so. I cringe when wait staff asks after 1 or 2 bites how my meal is, it makes me wonder why they're concerned and obviously are clueless that 1 or 2 bites of a multi-course meal is hardly enough to determine quality.
My background is in Food Science so I am extremely critical of the preparation and delivery of my food. I was not disappointed, at all, nor was my wife.
Dungeness Crab Cake for my wife and Pacific Razor Clam Chowder for me. The Caesar salad was a nice starter to the entrees: Maple-Brined Pork Chop Braised Swiss chard, twice baked Yukon potato, pear-thyme coulis for her and Grilled Northwest Salmon Sweet corn polenta, escarole, tomato-thyme confit for me. The salmon was perfectly grilled, moist from edge to edge and medium rare in the middle. The chop, perfect. Both dessert choices were wonderful.
Great Anniversary dinner, we both agree.
Hard to find a nice cozy place in downtown any more. Asma is best server
Enjoy another quick lunch experience. Love server Asma, my best. A little disappointed that they charge $15 for a glass of pinot grigio, not a huge pour and I thought it was a Santa Marigharita type of pinot gri, so why so much??
The Margaux at the Warwick is a wonderful place for a quiet, romantic and tasty meal while touring downtown Seattle. The New Year's Eve dinner consisted of a five-course extravaganza with each course complimenting the next. The meal was well dressed and delicious.
I made a special request on Open Table for a seat not too near the door (it was a cold night), they acknowledged this with a follow up phone call and were right on it when we arrived. The ambience wasn't what we were expecting and our expectations dropped a little walking in, but the service was very good and the food was excellent. The ahi appetizer was light and very well executed as was the lamb shank. My wife's scallops were perfect. Dessert was big and rich so it could not be finished, but the opportunity was there if you like that sort of thing.
We were there during the week between Christmas and New Year's for lunch. Quiet place, only 5 tables in action while we were there. Good place at that time for our conversations. Food was adequate, but, nothing exceptional. Service was efficient, but, could have been much better, given the number of customers. There was no drive-by "How is everything?" soon after the food was served. Missed out on additional drink orders as we were almost done with the meal, before anyone approached. People were friendly though.
Wonderful french food with excellent presentation. I had the prix food special salmon dinner and my son loved the boulaibaise.
We had a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner at the Margaux. The service was attentive but not intrusive, the room is very handsome, and the food was exceptional. I had the French onion soup, which was perfect, and the duck breast, which was amazing. My husband had two appetizers, a Margaux salad and moule frites, both of which were delicious and quite filling as a meal. We shared a crème brule, which really was big enough for two. With 2 drinks, the total cost was $75, which we found quite reasonable. We are very happy to find such a special restaurant only 5 blocks from our apartment. We plan to return for happy hour before a concert or theater to have appetizers as a light dinner. I have already recommended the Margaux to friends and family.
Having looked at the menu and seen the prices and dishes they offered, we expected a higher end establishment. Unfortunately, it looks like an upscale IHOP on the inside: it's all a bunch of vinyl booths. It really is just another hotel restaurant, but the prices do not reflect this.
We both ordered the steak frites. Not only was the sauce drowning all the good on the plate, but the medium rare cooked steak was not tender at all. That sauce was delicious though.
Overall, for a $35 steak, I could have had much better quality and paid the same price at one of Tom Douglas' places next door or even Daniel's Broiler.
While the service was great, I will not be coming back.
Very pleased with its location and value. Gmreat service too
We took the monorail from the Seattle Center, then walked to this location. Rode the Monorail back to Seattle Center to see a show at Key Arena. Nice, quiet restaurant with good food.
My boyfriend and I came here for his birthday dinner. We both enjoyed our meals, they were cooked perfectly, only thing is that the sauces were kind of strange and not what we would have expected. Overall we had a great experience, staff was very nice and accommodating. I really enjoyed when the bartender brought up one of the old 1978 bottles of wine to show us, top notch customer care.
It was good if not great but was very intrigue with an item in my food. Had mushroom linguine.
Service was good but the food that sounded lovely on the menu was just okay. Nothing bad but nothing great.
My husband and I went for our 29th year wedding anniversary. It was very romantic. The food, wine, service, and atmosphere were excellent. We were very pleased with our choice to dine here. When they knew it our anniversary they offered us a choice of a free dessert on the house. We had walked through the bar and even that area looked great. Everyone there was smiling and they all looked like they were enjoying themselves. It was worth the 58 minute drive it took us to get there. We will definitely return.
While the food was okay, and the setting was nice, the service was poor. The waiter seemed unsure of the menu and then once we got our food, we never saw him again…20 minutes after finishing our main course we lost interest in dessert and tried pushing our plates to the end of the table as a signal we were done. Finally a hostess came over and removed the plates and refilled our water. I thought she would alert the waiter, not sure if she did, but another 10 minutes passed and we didn't see him so I flagged down another hostess and asked if we could get the check. She thanked us for our patience and then finally the waiter came with the check. I would not recommend this restaurant, there are too many other good choices in the area.
Food is marginal. One waiter so it takes to long to get served. Especially for lunch.
Food might have tasted worse the more I looked at those dirty chairs and tables. The place needs an updating. Does the manager only come at night or when he/she is drunk?
Their french onion soup is one of the best I've had and the apple dessert with cinnamon dessert was scrumptious. I took off two stars because the main courses were just okay and the portions of the soup and dessert were very small.
Food was very good--notably the maple pork chop and duck breast are recommended. Our server was notably good.
I purchased a Restaurant.com gift certificate so myself and a friend stopped in on a Friday night for a bite to eat. The food was delicious! I had the crab cake appetizer with a Margaux salad and both were very tasty. The crab cake is made with real crab! My friend had the Butternut Squash appetizer with a Margaux salad. The ravioli dish was like pizza.....it was delicious!!! Service is great, very helpful and friendly staff. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
A good, though not great restaurant. Friendly and efficient. service. Prix fixe included a nice Caesar salad, a salmon dish with way too much going on that masked a nice piece of fish; The order of duck was ok. A bit dry and not all that flavorful. Standard-issue creme brulee was good. A note to anyone using a "Restaurant.com" certificate: The certificate notes that it can't be used with any special or promotional offers. This restaurant considers the prix fixe in that category. I don't understand this since it's part of the menu, is offered every day, etc. I didn't want to complain so we just ordered an extra desert (not bad cheesecake) and that brought the total up so the certificate counted. But still, a bit deceptive.
considering the other restaurants available in the immediate area and this place's menu/price/service/quality/atmosphere - there's simply no reason to dine here, period. i went because i had a gift certificate, but the menu was so lame i couldn't even find a way to get to the minimum purchase to use it. nothing about it was terrible, but against the competition, the food and menu were inferior and the pricing uncompetitive.
With all of the really great places to eat in the Belltown area, restaurants need to be at the top of their game - creative, high quality, etc. The food here just isn't that special, and certainly isn't worth the price you pay for it. We are very happy with our server, and actually felt badly for her, as the pace was empty on a weekend at 7 pm. Now we know why. Live and learn.
Food not good. Service slow. Ordered eggs benedict and yellow was as hard as fried egg. Also ordered eggs over easy and they were barely cooked.
The waitress and staff were most hospitable and went out of their way to serve us the meal we wanted and give us top service. WE were delighted with our dinner... not overcooked, large portion, hot... it was delicious. I also thought the bar/lounge would be a fun place to devour the three for the price of two appetizers offered on a tiered plate and another bowl of the razor clam chowder.
The special valentines 5 course dinner was exquisite. My lady and I were blown away by the high level of skill and artistry in the preparation and presentation of the dishes. The wine list was not as large as some places, but I would be hard pressed to turn down any of the wines on list.
The rib eye steak was 50% fat. What meat there was was very good. My wife's dinner was cold when it was served.
It was our 1st time there and we had no option but to order from the special menu which was pricey and was hard to order from since i have dietary allergies and couldn't order much without having to adjust my order. I really wish the regular menu was a choice. Our waiter was helpful but didn't know the menu very well and the service was kind of slow
Looking at the menu, I had high hopes. However, our meal was lukewarm at best and when I order duck breast rare, I really do mean rare...not medium. Very disappointed.
