The two ladies split an entree and it was MORE than enough. The guys got mahi and grouper, both were excellent. Great wine list and the best French martini ever. Food and service is always spot on at Margaux’s. Love this place!

We eat out all the time! Celebrated a birthday dinner for my husband's 53rd birthday. He said it was a 10 out of 10. Could not find one thing less than perfect! Outstanding service and quietly attentive... amazing bread service, fresh visually beautiful salad, delicious entrees, fabulous desserts all made onsite including Icecream and sorbets.... Atmosphere delightfully colorful and a pleasure and honor to meet the owner who after 25 years still circulates to make sure his customers all well served and happy. A++ Thank you so much!

Excellent food with one exception: 1 friend ordered the calves liver well done, and even after sending it back once, it was still done medium. Triggerfish was super, as were raw oysters and crab cakes. Even though the restaurant was busy, the noise level was quiet! Good attention to sound proofing - most other area restaurants should take a lesson from Margaux's!

This restaurant is our favourite and has been so for more than two decades. They have great service, good food, staff is friendly and courteous. Moreover staff turnover is minimal. This is a ‘must go to’ in Raleigh.

we were very disappointed. Food was good as always but the service was horrible. For the money that we spent we expect to get decent service. Drinks weren't refilled etc, we had to ask twice to get another beer. My tea wasn't refilled as expected and the wait staff in general was horrible. We like to come here on special occassions as this was our anniversary dinner. We will not be back for a long time, hopefully management will teach the wait staff how to take care of their paying customers. Once this happens we will be back and the waiter/waitress will be tipped appropriately.

Food and wine were good and there were some unusual items. I had triggerfish, which you don't see on many menus. Dessert was triple chocolate bread pudding with pumpkin ice cream. Delicious. We were early by 15 minutes, and bar service while we waited for our table to be ready was friendly but could have been quicker. We barely had started our glasses of wine by the time we had to close the bar tab and move. Restaurant was quite noisy: conversation in the dining area was difficult until the restaurant emptied out quite a bit. Whimsical decorations for Halloween were fun.

Margeaux's has been staple in Raleigh for years and never disappoints. We went early with our family eating off the price fixe menu. All the appetizers and main courses were exceptional. All the meals ended in a exquisite dessert. Steve & his team truly are fabulous hosts and food is 2nd to none . We would highly recommend Margeaux's for every day dining, special occasions and business related meals with their private room very cozy with all amenities for group events

Margaux's is a solid choice. We had both a seafood dish (grouper) and a turf choice (filet) and they were scrumptious!
The appetizers were great (pork belly) and the pear gorgonzola salad was wonderful too.
It's a great time; so grab your date and go!
