The owner personally cleared & seated us in a special section so my 86 yr old dad didn't have to walk far from the front door.
Margaux's is the best restaurant in N. Raleigh.

11 year anniversary. Saw excellent reviews and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed the prix fixe menu options of Caesar salad, herb-grilled steak and cheesecake for my beautiful wife and I enjoyed the crispy shrimp with fingerling potato salad, grilled bbq pork chop and dark chocolate mousse. We were seated in the corner by the fireplace and it was perfectly placed away from the noise. Perfect food, customer service and atmosphere. Definite return plans.

The 3 course “ early bird special” is the best deal in town. We ( four in our group) dined outside. Outside dining at Margaux is popular..plenty of room. A very pleasant dining experience. Our waitress was first rate…friendly and knowledgeable. All three courses were excellent. I had the salmon . The apple cinnamon bread pudding was especially good.

Eric and Ann Marie did very well, as usual! Best food and drink in town. In the Pandemic, service and food quality has suffered but Margaux's has not suffered. Steve and the team continue drive a super evening out experience.

We had another lovely experience at Margaux’s Friday night. The weather was perfect for the patio and they do have the beat patio in town. The place was absolutely packed inside and out but we never felt crowded and our service was on the spot. Margaux’s is definitely the best way to treat yourself to someplace special.

Margaux's is a family favorite for our special occasions. It's a bit pricey overall, but the Prix Fixe menu makes it much more reasonable. The food is always good and the service is attentive.

Wonderful experience. Went there twice in one weekend. First for dessert for our anniversary and then two nights later for dinner. Excellent menu with many eclectic choices, great waitstaff and yummy food. Recommend the hot fudge sundae, French Onion Soup and the filet circa 1992. Steak was cooked to perfect temperature!

Server was great. Martini’s were spot on! Bacon clam chowder and desert were very good. The meals were below par - Tuna was awful. Sent it back. Got Pho Pan Roasted Grouper; grouper was smaller than a children’s serving - mainly a bunch of Pho for $40. Spouses steak was not cooked as ordered. Very average. Disappointing for an anniversary dinner. Thank goodness for great Martinis and a fun server!

Margaux’s is really a special treat so we decided to celebrate our Anniversary a little early with some time there. We sat on the patio again this visit which was lovely; shady and cool thanks to the “ceiling fans.” We shared appetizers… oysters on the half shell and Vietnamese spring rolls with crabmeat. Both were great and filling so we each ended up ordering salads for our “entrees.” Mine included the best blue cheese dressing I have ever had. The salads are huge; definitely can be a meal. The last time we ate at Margaux’s we were gifted the creme brûlée for dessert so I’m not going to lie, that is the main reason I wanted to return so quickly. We ordered it this time and it was as amazing as before. All desserts (and salad dressings) are made in house and you can tell. Our evening was a win-win and we already have reservations to return with friends next week. Thank you Margaux’s!

Margeaux's just isn't what it used to be. The food is good, but not outstanding and the chef's inflexibility to substitutions is frustrating. Would have liked several items on the menu with a subbed side or sauce, but I know from past experience that it's not an option. Wish I would have remembered this before booking again. The grouper was "fine", but not great. My dinner mates both said their meals were "fine", but not amazing we hope for. I can cook "fine" meals at home. One the plus side, the wine was delish and our server was fantastic.
