We are regulars at Margaux's and really enjoy their menu as it is a good blend of new dishes with some tried and true favorites. What really makes the restaurant is their staff. There are high levels of attention to detail and the customer service is top notch.
Food, drinks and our waiter were all superb. Will be back.
This place was so good. The prices are a little high but the food was amazing. I got the 3 course meal and each course was amazing. The lighting in here was perfect and the noise level was okay. It is definitely not a place to bring children though. I highly recommend and will be returning.
We love Margaux’s! The food is always great, the service is exceptional and it is small enough to be intimate. And I love the artwork - it just makes me feel good.
We love the prix fixe menu and it was a great deal early on a Friday evening. Our server was wonderful and even remembered us from our last visit, which was awhile ago. We were still talking about the meal the next day. Great experience and I will be back next weekend!
The food was very good all the way around but I found it skimpy to only get 4 shrimp on my entree. It was overdone with spinach. I enjoyed my food but the chef needs to improve featured ingredient amount. Great bread and dessert. Special touches were noted.
There was a few things that lowered our rating: There was four of us and most of our meals were wonderful however a filet ordered medium was far beyond well. It was a rare storm night and the room was empty when we entered yet the service staff put the four of us in a VERY tight table in the center of the walkway (why??). The restaurant was far from full... For some reason a request to change tables upset our waitress?? From the table move on she appeared agitated and bothered. It was a reasonable ask, on a crappie night and we could have cancelled yet we were in the restaurant trying to enjoy a dinner out. Not sure why we were "punished" for a normal request.
Second visit after long hiatus. We were not disappointed. Bit noisy but our table was a bit tucked away so able to catch up with old friends.
If i had to sum up with one word: mediocre. Salmon was over done, both cooking time and seasoning...super salty. Crab cake appetizer: the cakes themselves were very thin with a lot of breading and deep fried, they were ok bit the chow chow served underneath it was vinegar overload. Waitor brought the wrong wine out but was very nice and fixed once I figured it out.
Just didn’t love the food and on top was super loud and hard to hear yourself talk or think
Delicious as always! Lemon drop martinis were mixed to perfection and our meals were great!
Entire dining experience was outstanding -- easy to make reservations through Open Table.
Waitress was very attentive. Food preparation was excellent.
Will go to this restaurant again.
I am always thrilled with my experience at Margaux. The food is just phenomenal and the service is top notch. A great restaurant for any occasion!
The service was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable with regards to the menu. The food was delicious and the cocktails were on point.i would definitely recommend thanks s restaurant and I will be returning.
Margaux's has been an institution for many years and our experience lived up to its reputation. Great food. Great service. Nice ambiance. Recommend it!
Dined at Margaux's last Sat night with my wife. A last minute reservation still netted us a good table. Service was attentive throughout the evening. The food was delicious and presented well. Overall we had a great time, although the noise level was a bit on the loud side. Can't wait to dine there again.
our first time here. Food was really good. Odd decor. Great prix fixe menu price during happy hour (and Mondays).
We always love Margauxs- whether you want to spend a lot or a little, their menu offers lots of variety. Always always delicious! I love the low lighting and all the original art. And the service is always attentive.
My favorite restaurant in Raleigh hands down. The seafood is outstanding and the service is always impeccable.
Excellent value for consistently good food, excellent and orofessional waitstaff, very reasonable pricing and relatively quick order arrival time. Just a great relaxing and informal place to have a great meal at a reasonable price.
Just wonderful all around from the moment we got there! This was our first time and will definitely be back. Wonderful wine with a good pour. Server, Bill, just great and lots of fun. Wonderful value on prix fix menu with lots of choices. The steak was super tender and cooked just right. All the desserts were yummy. You will not be sorry if you go here.
Great time. Food was delicious and our server was great.
We were celebrating our Valentine’s Day and have been wanting to try Margaux’s for a long time. We had heard about how great they were so we made a reservation for 7:30pm about 6 weeks in advance. We got to the restaurant about 7:15 and we didn’t get seated until probably 7:45-7:50 (so definitely make a reservation but do plan to wait past your reserved time).
While the hostesses were stressed and a bit frazzled (don’t blame them, it was crazy busy), the food was beyond incredible. The flavors were bold, exciting and really played well with one another. We stared with the escargot and spring rolls, had the scallops and swordfish for dinner and ended with the chocolate raspberry cheesecake for him and the sorbet for me. My scallops with the sweet potato mash definitely were the best of the evening - cooked beautifully and the sweet potato mash was a perfect pairing.
The only downside (to NO fault of the restaurant) was this OBNOXIOUSLY DRUNK table of 6 next to us. My fiancé and I couldn’t even hear one another because they were so loud - other patrons were clearly annoyed as well. Quite frankly, I felt bad for the waitress - I think the management should have helped her out and cut them off because there was NOT ONE person that should have been driving.
All in all - we would go back but probably during the week because the weekend was just far too busy and loud.
Very nice. Delicious.
I came for the three-course special, but then decided to have two appetizers instead: the angus taco and the crab cake with shrimp. Both were excellent and came with a very creative “salad”. Voila - a perfect meal for me, plus the wine of course!
Excellent food. Attentive staff. Great night to celebrate a special birthday
Great food and service. My wife and I always go here for a night out
This restaurant is one of our all time favs! Awesome food, service, location, beer, wine; always! Just a treat for us every time we go! Can't say enough good things! Just GO!!
My 17 year old granddaughter tried the escargot and liver....she liked both of them. A rare adventure for a teenager... and a positive result. Her duckling was wonderful..... Ann Marie, our waitress was engaging and thorough.
We will go back.
We had a lovely time celebrating a friend's birthday. As always, food and drink were delicious and we were treated very well! Staff is always so nice!
We hadn’t been there for years, but decided to go there for our anniversary. It did not let us down. The food and service were both great, and their 3 course fixed price menu is a great deal. We’lol be back.
Great food , great service, great time!
Great food and service; pricey (price fixe menu is a good value though); a bit noisy.
Went there to celebrate my wife's birthday. We had the early bird special (3 course meal) and it was excellent. We asked them to move us from the original table assigned because there was a large group coming in and we felt it would be to noisy - the wait staff could not have been more accommodating.
Food was good but the noise level is unacceptable to me.
It was great from start to finish. Our waiter was superb and was very helpful in selecting delicious entrees. We will be back.
Food and service were both excellent. A little noisy but nice decor. Would like to try patio seating sometime.
Plates cleared in a rushed manner without asking if we were done for several courses. Table layout in space too tight.
We took advantage of the wonderful early bird special selection. Early Bird is between 5:00 to 6:00pm. A very nice variety for all 3 courses. Great price for food which led us to be able to order bar drinks. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Not noisy like a lot of restaurants. Definitely look forward to going back.
Food was delicious. The bar was very arty, looked fun. The service was excellent as well.
