    Went to Margaux Jdek on a Tuesday for my husband's birthday. The server was very nice. Our appetizers where Beef Tartare which was wonderful and a decent portion size, and a bowl of French onion soup which was also good. For the main course we had the Peking Duck breast and the Campanelle. We were both surprised to see very small portion of Duck. It was just two slices of breast about an 4in x 1in x 1in, the peas where not fresh and were dry, the Croquettes were good. The Campanelle was cold when I got it, or server apologized and took my plate and fork to correct the food. The food came back and before I could tell my server that I had no fork she was gone. So I had to leave the table and find my server to ask for silverware. The Campanelle was a decent portion size and was good. After dinner was finished the server asked us if we would like to order dessert. We said yes, but I had a question and before I could get another word out she was gone to get the dessert menu. When she returned we ordered dessert. I pulled her aside to ask her if she was aware of the birthday request I made when I made the reservation and she said no and that she would go look at it. The request was to have a dessert brought to the table that said Happy Birthday Jeremy that did not contain cream cheese. This is why I was confused why she asked if we wanted to order dessert in the first place. Dessert took a while to arrive. The desserts were amazing. The check took forever to arrive. 7:45pm - Reservation Arrival 8:30pm - Drinks arrived 8:36pm - Appetizers arrived 8:45pm - Main course arrived 9:39pm - Dessert arrived 10:05pm - Check arrived

    You can’t beat the location or ambiance here! Liz was our server (2nd time she’s been my server here) and she was amazing as always! Wish the menu wasn’t so pricy especially with somewhat petite portion sizes. I think if the menu offered a bit more range on price point (throw a burger and some sandwiches in for under $16/18), I’d come here more often. Very glad valet is back in action!

    We sat outside and it was uncomfortably warm. Of course I don't blame the restaurant for the weather, but it would have been nice if they had more shade devices. The food was good, but not good enough for what we paid. And the portions for 3 of our 4 dishes were *very* small. I'd not come back.

    Our experience could not have been more perfect! 6:30pm on a Thursday in late June turned out to be a quiet night, though the crowd picked up a bit around 8pm. Seated outside on the deck on a hot night started out pretty, well, hot. But the temperature gradually cooled off a bit while my best friend and I ordered an outstanding Sauvignon Blanc and small plates to share. The service was impeccable (Michelle was very professional, personable, helpful and attentive), the setting was glorious, and the food presentation, quality and taste was top notch. The charcuterie, beet salad, and asparagus were all outstanding. Can’t recommend highly enough!

    Our experience here was just ok. When we arrived for our reservation, and though there were plenty of correctly sized open tables, we were told we were waiting for a specific table to leave. We waited about 5 minutes for them to leave and then 10 more for the table to be cleared. There was broken glass on the floor and half of the plates given to us in a stack for appetizers were actually dirty saucers. Our waitress was attentive and the food was good if overpriced for the portions. Drinks were extremely expensive. When we were wrapping up another team member came over to ask how it was which was nice but then asked us if we were leaving which I thought was strange and a little rude. If your still reading- a tip, make sure to take valuables and cash out of your car if you’re using the valet. We had a couple hundred dollars in our car (babysitting money) and the valet stole it. The security was nice and looked into it but at the end of the day didn’t do anything about it. I would expect better at a high end place.

    Service was on point as well as the ambiance the igloo - loved the bluetooth speaker and the quiet space. Cocktails and apps were good. 1 of the three meals was good (steak), the gnocchi was really simple and all similar textures…needed a crunch, and the salmon dish was really bland. Not enough seasoning and vegetables were a little tough. Would have expected better meals based on how much you pay for them.

    Fun experience in the dome. Menu options need to be expanded a bit-very few choices; especially if you have food issues. But what they do have is done well and very good. I realize that everything costs more right now, but they’ve always been a bit too pricey. While our evening was nice, I’m probably likely to go elsewhere; simply to have more food options.

    Great fun to eat in the igloo! We were warm and comfy despite chilly temps. Liz was a most excellent server, gave us great recommendations . Brussel sprout and pesto flat bread were great appetizers! We liked but didn’t love our entrees , which were the chicken and the wild boar ragout. We had an dish coffee for desert-highly recommend ! It’s pricey but a really great experience !

    The cocktails were excellent very well balanced Our service by Esven was fantastic!!! Brussel Sprouts were very good Entrees were excellent however the takeout Campanelle Boar Ragout was way more pasta than boar or sauce My husband was a bit disappointed in it But eating out in the Dome was awesome and overall the experience was fab I would however suggest to either put the Experience menu on Opentable or email a link to it to guests prior to reservation as you have to order 48hrs prior to res If I had known about it I def would have preordered the fondue or the cocoa bar

    It was our 25th anniversary. We did mention it when i made reservations and also upon confirmation call and arrival. The domes are beautiful. Your server didn’t wear a mask so we had to put ours and off all through dinner. Perhaps servers should be masked it would have made the entire experience enjoyable. That’s why we did the Jdek, to avoid dining with unmasked people in a pandemic, I was sad servers did not mask. We missed 2 dishes and had to ask for them, as they were forgotten. We paid $65 for a seafood tower, yet you had no tools to use to get the crab meat out. Wishing only our hands, we ended up wasting a lot of crab. It was a mess. I got fish smelling crab water on my clothes trying to get the meat out. We have been loyal customers if JW and of Margaux. After this lackluster experience we will not be bad. We did address with server and manager and they attitude and answer was it’s a pandemic what do you expect. We expect more, at least crab rolls, for a minimum of $200. Upset.

    Disappointing. My Seafood Tower was nothing like advertised, they show/ advertise a good amount of cracked in half king crab, oven roasted with herbs, scallops, shrimp, mussels, and what I received was one 4 leg Snow crab section (legs were about rign finger width and steamed not roasted, 2 scallops, 3 shrimp, and a few mussels. VERY, very disappointed as this was $65. Husbands NY steak was good but my food was beyond disappointing, especially for the price we paid. We reserved a dome, and that was great, but probably will not return, unless for apps, or just drinks. $207 for NY Strip, the sad Seafood Tower, 1 salad, appetizer, and 2 drinks each, with tip.

    We took our daughter for her 4th birthday and the experience was incredible. We struggled with finding a place to make her day special because dining with a 4 year old is not so fun. I’m always worried about her bothering others. The jdek was an incredible solution. The igloos are adorable, warm, and you get to choose your own music! They don’t advertise a kids menu online, but were happy to make baby to make baby girl the cheeseburger and fries that she requested. Jas, our server made the experience one to remember with her kind and attentive service. They food was great! make sure to order the Brussels sprouts. You won’t be disappointed. We will be back again. This place is incredible.
