Great ambiance and great service! Food was great, but a bit overpriced. In general, I think you’re paying for the atmosphere (which is amazing)!
Our table enjoyed the filet which was tender and cooked to perfection. The trout was also very lovely with a generous portion. The pasta ragout was also slowly roasted, tender and flavored the pasta wonderfully. A perfect way to start out the evening pre-concert.
This was our first trip to Margaux and overall it was pleasing. The food and presentation were above average but not stellar. Our server, Esvin, was terrific, knowledgeable, and very attentive.
Overall, it was a positive dining experience.
Friendly and professional staff, awesome view, and good food selection.
Food and setting was great, but the waiter spilled quite a bit our wine while pouring, took 5 mins to clean it up, never really did anything about it. Service was slow, but I understand with staffing issues right now. Just wasn’t very professional.
Had special dinner for our anniversary. Wonderful location, on the water on the outdoor deck. Food was wonderful, waitress very accommodating and friendly. Even received a special complimentary dessert for our special occasion. A little windy at times, but worth the view. Saw the sunset.
Our waitress was AMAZING! She made us feel so appreciated!
JDek is always a good time. The trout is fantastic. Only complaint is that they do not have umbrellas out and it was very sunny when we got there. But once the sun goes behind the museum it was fine.
The view was amazing! We saw a beautiful sunset over the Grand River. The menu is limited, but food was great!
Lack of table service. Lack of cutlery, drink was overpriced and tasteless. I make a better cheese board at home. Left before ordering entrees.
The service and recommendations were excellent! Pricey but good.
Setting is beyond beautiful with views of the city and the Grand River. The staff is top notch-providing exceptional service from the host stand to our table. Food and drinks are fantastic.
Lovely outside area that overlooks the river. Great service and the food was delicious.
Nice setting outside, very windy the day we were there.
Everything was speculator
The staff were not very knowledgeable about the menu. They had a hard time even reading it to tell us about it, and gave weird names to menu items when served to us. Other than the lack of understanding their own menu, they are friendly and the food was good.
In town for a wedding and exactly what I needed. Great food and great service and the perfect location. Will definitely return next time we’re in GR.
Service was awesome. Food tasted amazing, portions were quite small however for the price. View is great along the Grand River.
Sunday brunch on the jdek was wonderful. The weather was beautiful. The building blocked the hot morning sun, and there was a nice breeze along the river. Beautiful environment for brunch.
There were 4 of us in our party, two with birthdays. The service was friendly and efficient, the food delicious, and the birthday surprise of dessert for the two birthday men was incredibly nice. There was no cover on the deck area, which was not consistent with posted photos, and the gin and tonic was mediocre. Overall a very nice experience, but we also got lucky that the sun was not excruciating. Jdek should recognize people’s risk of skin cancer and get some patio umbrellas of some sort.
Eating on the deck was relaxing and very enjoyable. I will definitely do this again!
Great service, amazing food! Beat place to spend an anniversary!
The weather was spectacular for my riverside dinner; Hannah was a bright spirit with food & wine wisdom. As planned and executed, a marvelous sunset evening!
Loved the ambiance and atmosphere, the views were great! Our service was pleasant and attentive. My only complaint was the food. I splurged on the filet mignon but wished I hadn't; it was overcooked and just plain boring, hardly seasoned at all.
My husband got the half chicken which he thought was pretty good and we did like our appetizer and dessert (charcuterie board & rhubarb caramel cheesecake).
Overall good experience, but the food was a bit overpriced for nothing great.
We attended with two kids for the American Picnic in July 3rd. It was wonderful. I would only suggest adding some hotdogs or hamburgers for the younger kids. Thank you!
Open Table reservations clearly stated that outdoor seating was unavailable so I booked a high top that I assumed was in the bar area and not associated with Margaux fine dining area. If the weather had been warmer or my guests prepared, we would have been pleasantly surprised to learn we were seated outside. As it was, we were not prepared. I also would have thought propane lantern heaters would be on hand since Michigan Spring-Summer-Fall temperatures can be very unpredictable. If was fine until the sun set. Staff readily supplied a blanket to start and then eventually moved us inside. Inside was great, but acoustics were loud making conversation difficult. This is a great Grand Rapids location, and the wait staff were very accommodating.
The food was cold and terrible! My waitress disappeared and when she resurfaced. She said I was waiting for you to make eye contact! I love the patio so nice to sit in the summer. The awful food and poor service is not worth it!
We did not eat, the drinks were fine and the setting was awesome however they were too busy for how many people they had working. Our server was perfectly pleasant but it took us 30 minutes to get a glass of wine and a whiskey drink from their cocktail menu with minimal communication. I understand places are trying to get back in the swing but they shouldn’t have accepted our reservation then.
The food is absolutely delicious and the outside seating overlooking the River is beautiful!
We always love the JW. It’s lively. It’s clean. There were about six people in the entire restaurant and our server forgot our food. We waited over an hour for two people. We will definitely return, but will always sit at the bar. Nothing was comped. Nothing was discounted. We look forward to our next visit, but never again at a table. The bartenders are thorough, knowledgeable, competent, and attentive.
Out server was exceptionally nice.
My group did not get to experience the Jdek at Margaux with our reservation. We arrived early for our reservation time at 8:45pm and waited over 20 minutes after our reservation to be seated while other reservations at our time were immediately sat. Although management did address the issue, nothing was done to get my group seated in a quick manner. It was a bummer we waited for such a long period and never got to enjoy the beautiful sunset and drinks for our birthday party group.
Expensive for the quality of the food. Your basically paying for the view.
Our server, Jaz, was so attentive and sweet. We were there to celebrate my cousin's engagement and they really made her feel special with the dinner and atmosphere. We all enjoyed our dinner and drinks, too!
Excellent meal excellent wait staff. You have to appreciate the hard-working people who work in the hospitality industry and I've had to deal with Covid and concerned travelers and government over regulation. The ones that showed up and took care of you deserve to be treated very well!
Food was delicious, however the service was very slow. Our waitress seemed to be very stressed but was still great.
NO heaters on patio and bugs everywhere. Service was slow.
We sat at the bar and had drinks and dinner. What a fun atmosphere and the food and drinks were A+!!
I was not aware that jdeck was only open until 2pm. When we got there, most tables were full. By the time we were seated and looking at the menus all tables were empty except for us. We were told we had to order immediately because kitchen and bar were closing at 2pm. Our reservation was for 1:45. I had brought a friend there for their 50th birthday for the ambiance of being on the river, in the sun, assuming it would be an enjoyable atmosphere with people around us clinking glassware and laughing - but instead we were made to feel like we were intruding and needed to leave. Our food and drinks were good - and the servers made a big deal out of it being my friend's birthday - but, I still felt a disgruntled over being rushed while paying for higher quality. If you don't want people on your deck past a certain time, don't take the reservation. Who is going to get a birthday brunch over in 15 minutes?
