    Simply THE BEST scallops.I have ever had. The smoked gouda grits and pork belly accented them perfectly.

    Thinking of JW Marriott label, this restaurant is poorly run, the staff are not well trained and food is just low caliber for such a fine name as JW. Every other location, JW Marriott lives up to its expectations and the Dallas location should not be different but it does not meet expectations.

    These are the names I want to recognize my entire evening…. JOEL,NIKI,BRITTANY,BRANDON, AND OWEN keep in mind this is my first time here and I go to a lot of fine dining restaurants and other restaurants around I have NEVER had an amazing experience from the BAR to the TABLE they all treated me with respect and smiles and recommendations that were beyond amazing they made me feel like I was apart of them and felt at home which is so rare in every form and aspect let’s start with the host amazing people but went straight to the bar Niki opened up with smiles and a greet and recommended me the pork starter! I’m glad I listened to her because that’s the best pork I had in months! Then Brittany also chimed in and made me and my fiance laugh with her jokes as well and made us feel like we’re not judged! After 2 hours at the bar we went to to our table Brandon was the same treatment smile greeting felt like he loved his career here amazing energy amped us up for our food and drink! Not just that he treated us like if we were his family which is so rare now after our dinner of how amazing it was joel came to our table with the upmost respect told us about the benefits of joint the Marriott in which we will definitely join because of his recommendations and points he mentioned not only that Owen also joined our table to make sure everything went well smoothly and the fact that they all came and checked and chatted especially with other people and us made us feel like this is our permanent restaurant to have beautiful multiple nights in thank you team Margaret’s definitely going to be a regular from now on!

    This restaurant is stunning. My out of town surprise date for my husband on Valentines was perfect! The restaurant is Quiet with beautiful views and amazing staff! The appetizer we ordered was the pork belly and it came with corn tortillas, listen it was absolutely delicious! Main course we both ordered the pork chop and it was top tier! We cleaned all plates! Adela was our waitress and she was great!

    We sat at the bar until our table was ready. Troy was very personable, professional and man can he make a fabulous cocktail. Once we were sat, we waited 40 minutes and no one took a drink order. I had to get up and say something. Once I did though, Raul was superb. Service improved drastically. The food was amazing, simply sensational. I believe the next time we go back, they’ll get it right the first time. Definitely worth eating here!

    Our experience was very uneven. First, it was a reminder of the difference a good server can make in your dining experience. While our server was nice and pleasant, working at an upscale restaurant might not be the profession for her. She didn’t advise us that we might want to order some sides with our entrees if we wanted vegetables. However, the menu descriptions did not lead us to that conclusion either. We had some hits and we had some misses with the food. The ACKNOWLEDGE THE CORN shareable dish was an awesome start to the meal. And the Chilean Sea Bass entree was good as well. I’d pass on the TX IBERICO PORK CHOP. After a long well I sent mine back as it was undercooked. However, cooking it more did not help. Our server offered us a free dessert (instead of asking if we wanted a substitute entree) but there was not a chocolate offering. We settled on the apple cobbler but it was mostly crust and short on apples. Margaret’s is on the 11th floor of the JW Hotel so there are nice views of downtown and a great atmosphere. Despite this experience we will give it another try and chalk it up to poor menu selections for our less than stellar food experience (the scallops and ribeye that the couple beside us ordered looked awesome) and hope to get a better server next time. We won’t be rushing back though.

    Food was absolutely delicious and the added details made it very special. From a Delightful complimentary offering of cornbread with different spreads to start right down to the after dinner piece of mint chocolate with the Margaret’s name to end the meal, this restaurant was a wonderful surprise. We will go back.

    I recently had the pleasure of dining at Margaret’s restaurant to celebrate my sister's birthday, and it was an unforgettable experience from start to finish. From the moment we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by the attentive staff, particularly our server, Brandon, whose exceptional service elevated our evening. Brandon's insightful food recommendations were nothing short of impeccable, guiding us through the menu with expertise and enthusiasm. Throughout the evening, Brandon’s attentiveness never waned, ensuring that our glasses were always filled and our needs promptly met. His diligence and commitment to providing top-notch service truly enhanced our dining experience. We also had the pleasure of indulging in cocktails crafted by the talented bartender, whose expertise resulted in drinks that were nothing short of sublime. As for the food itself, every dish was a culinary masterpiece, bursting with flavor and expertly prepared. Furthermore, the ambience was amazing and the view of downtown Dallas was amazing. In conclusion, our experience at Margaret’s was nothing short of exceptional. From the stunning views to the impeccable service provided by Brandon and the delectable cuisine, every aspect exceeded our expectations.

    We arrived at 1:45 for our 2pm Open Table booked reservation. We walked in and at first were ignored. Finally a host directed us to a table. The server then came over and told us the kitchen would be closing in 5 minutes. We told her that we had booked online. She told us we were welcome to order drinks or come back another day for a meal. We will never return.

    Food and drinks were superb. Service friendly but could have been a bit faster/more attentive. Will definitely be back for the food. Annoying that self parking in the attached garage isn’t validated but valet in the same garage is; wish someone had mentioned this up front but either way it’s silly to not have an affiliation with the garage your entry literally funnels into.

    Wonderful food, great service nice atmosphere. I would definitely recommend Margaret’s. I chose this as it’s my namesake, didn’t know it was as good as it was. Pricey yes, but every single dish was exceptional. The menu description does not tell how intricate the dishes are. Would I eat there again, you bet you. The only comment would be i did not order desert as there was nothing chocolate on the menu. Add some kind of decadent chocolate desert and I’m 1st in line. Who am i kidding it’s 6 hours later and I’m still stuffed. Margaret S

    Our server was not the most attentive. The restaurant was not crowded for a Saturday night which was odd because we could not get a reservation until 8pm. We felt like there was too much lag time between drink orders, food orders, etc. Anyway, on the upside, the food was amazing and the ambience was very nice. This is a wonderful hotel restaurant with delicious farm to table options. I would go back in a heartbeat despite the lackluster service.

    The food was quite good. For appetizer, we had squash dumplings and onion soup. The blossoms weren’t really hot but they were delicious and the soup was good. Just really different. The short ribs for two were outstanding as was the grits and elote. We enjoyed our cocktails as well. We were celebrating a very special occasion. I thought the restaurant could see the open table reservation but maybe not because no mention was made. They didn’t even offer dessert menu, just brought the check after the main course. Otherwise, really nice experience.

    Portions aren’t great. Sure the grain bowl had plenty of grains and greens but most protein choices are small. Tacos were small and my guest had to order something else to eat. I’ve had mixed experiences with the bread/biscuit. Sometimes I get it and sometimes I don’t.

    Beautiful setting and view. Brunch was delicious. Service was not up to par for a restaurant in a high end hotel. Once we were seated we eventually had to flag down our server to place an order. When our food came out we ordered drinks, which were never delivered. No one checked in while we were eating. They did comp us drinks but we ended up spending over 90 minutes there for a quick brunch for two.
