Amazing place. Went for our anniversary and could not have been more pleased with the service, food and environment.
Outdoor seating on the Jdek, a terrace above the Grand River, was warm enough. We enjoyed the olives and Caesar salad, but the Roasted Seafood Tower was fantastic, all elements perfectly seasoned and cooked. Chocolate Marquise, Creme Brulee, and 2016 Pinot Noir rounded out a fantastic meal.
Staff is top notch. In the middle of crazy COVId they just made it work whether I wanted to eat there or bring back to my room. They were pleasant and attentive. I wish I could bring them home to my restaurants in New Jersey and show them how it’s done :). Food was great I was super relaxed. I’ll probably eat here my entire stay.
Very misleading. They wanted to seat us in the lobby of the hotel but did not explain this on the Open Table site. They were not ready or adjusting to the Covid restrictions like other restaurants have. This was a special dinner for my anniversary. We left and thankfully went to another very quaint place called Divani which was around the corner.
Celebrated a birthday here this weekend. Our waitress was very kind and understanding, willing to move us when we asked due to the rain. Outdoor sitting is great however there are a lot of bugs, and a lack of lighting, it was hard to even see the food. Other than that everything was great. Loved the NY-Strip Steak. Will be back sometime soon.
Enjoyed our experience at Margaux. Had the charcuterie and fromage, the walleye, tenderloin and the chocolate marquise dessert and the chèvre cheesecake. The taste was just what you would expect from a place like this, tasty and balanced, presentation was on point and I’d definitely try it again. Too bad they ran out of the crème brûlée, we’ll try it next time when we’re in town.
Wonderful staff and Food. Great Service and atmosphere
Great service and food!
I dined at Margaux in January and loved it. Last Friday didn't resemble what I knew ugh
Beautiful location with great food. The hearth grilled seafood tower was world class.
Good Afternoon! Thank you so much for your feedback. I am happy you enjoyed the seafood tower and your experience with us. We hope to see you again soon!
Great concept, poor execution. Food and cocktails were so-so. Server was friendly. Would not return or recommend to friends/family.
Really enjoyed lunch on the deck. Food was good and tables were spaced appropriately. I was a little concerned however as there was a guest walking around the deck without a mask on. Wish everyone was respectful of each other.
Got a 50 dollar steak with fries??? Come on!!
Of course, a beautiful location and excellent food. Our service was frustratingly slow. Despite a reservation, we waited for a table which was in poor condition (wobbling causing my wine to nearly spill if bumped). We had to ask the host to send us a server, were offered food that belonged to another table, were not able to order a second round of drinks, and had substantial delays in getting our bills. I was hosting two friends from out of town and the situation was pretty embarrassing.
We came to Margaux to celebrate a big life moment and we were sorely disappointed in the experience. While the server was nice, the $50 steak was mediocre at best and I also had to ask for different glass of wine since the Pinot Noir I ordered was vinegary. In addition, when we asked to sit inside, we were sat in the hotel lobby watching people check in to the hotel instead of inside a nice restaurant. I would recommend Margaux to grab cocktails and maybe an expensive app, but not for a nice meal.
The Oven baked seafood tower was really wonderful. We dined outdoors and the view is always lovely. Service was very attentive. Drinks were delicious and perfectly prepared.
Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed our warm seafood tower! We look forward to seeing you again soon. Best wishes, Elle Wadel Margaux General Manager
We picked a great day to be on the deck. Gorgeous late afternoon on the Grand River! First off, their bartenders are rock stars! My friend and I both had over an hour to drive home after dinner so alcohol was out. But we didn’t want plain water, so we asked our server if they were willing to do a “mocktail” for us. We were feeling something cold and a little fruity and sweet but not too much. We were totally cool with being surprised. They delivered two glasses of excellence! Especially when they didn’t have alcohol free options on their drink menu.
Excellent service continued when there was a miscommunication; when I made the reservation I put “absolutely no shellfish, person in party is deathly allergic.” That message was crossed between them and the kitchen. We also didn’t ask if the sauce for the walleye dish contained a shellfish, so as delicious as it looked and smelled, my friend had to send it back. When we explained why and several apologies to them, they re-made it with a cream sauce. “We have eyes on the plate as soon as it’s ready!” Everyone was very sweet and we felt bad because we didn’t ask first. Our surprise dessert was absolutely to die for!
Great good, fantastic service. Definitely be back!
Service at lunch was fantastic, from hostess to waiter to bus-persons to bartender. Food not as expected but that’s not critical for me. Had a fantastic time.
Great, service was a little slow but she was very friendly so we didn’t mind since it was a busy weekend!
It was my husband’s birthday and I let them know. I asked for a special dessert to come out and NOTHING was even mentioned. Please don’t ask how you can make it special if you are not planning to actually follow through with the request. Disappointed for the amount of money we spent...
Service was great! Ambiance was awesome except it was very dark once the sun went down and difficult to see. The tables outside could have benefited from candles.
We waited 45 minutes to get seated with reservations. Don’t have plans after.
It was nice on the outside patio, breezy and warm. Because of Covid menu and Wine List was limited. Understandable considering the epidemic. Servers made it fun. We had salmon, Walleye and the Trout we were all happy with our meals as when we go out for fine dining it’s always for seafood. The price is more for the ambiance and dining on the river.
Perfect Date Night with my Husband. Great atmosphere, amazing drinks and food, perfect view. We WILL be back!
Very impressed. Best experience I have ever had at a restaurant. Food was outstanding.
Waitress was phenomenal, and extremely friendly. Would for sure go there again.
I really loved the seating outside but it was a hot windy day so I think they should still open the front of the house to 50% capacity. All of the servers were extremely nice and friendly. The food was phenomenal and very well presented the only other complaint that I have is that they had to limit the menu. I understand the circumstances but it still would have been nice to have a filet mignon :)
Love Margaux and JDeck! Perfect for a summer night out on a patio for some drinks and appetizers! All of the staff is so helpful and friendly too! Will always recommend!
Dined for lunch. Food and service was fantastic! Liz was very attentive and friendly.
First time visiting, we enjoyed it! However , the view out the window was not desirable because of all the summer structures stacked up. Would have been nice to see the river since it is a riverfront restaurant.
From appetizer to dessert, everything was excellent!
The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Highly recommend
Excellent food and service. VERY accommodating and knowledgeable about food allergies. Our server knew the menu inside and out regarding food allergies and even double checked things with the chef to keep my daughter safe. Food was delicious. Drinks were awesome. A little spendy, but well worth it. Will visit again!
Interesting menu choices . Staff was super. Appreciated the complementary parking.
The menu is very interesting and the food is delicious. They also have a very nice wine list. The only real issue is that is feels the same as it felt as when the hotel restaurant was The 616. It is not so much a French bistro as it is a really good hotel restaurant.
Ok good high price
Food was outstanding! Great spot for a lunch meeting.
Food was excellent! Liz was our server and was very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. Looking forward to returning soon!
Every part of our meal was delicious! We tried the Valentine’s meal for two. I had the salad with the goat cheese croutons, my husband had the scallops entree, and we split the beef wellington. The meat was cooked perfectly! You could cut it with a butter knife. We also ordered the escargots appetizer, and it was very good as well. The dessert was a baked Alaska that they flambeed tableside, which was fun. It was also delicious! The one weakness was timing of wine with dinner and a bit of a wait to order after being seated, but it seemed like many of us all came in at the same time, so the waiters did their best. Not the most intimate setting for a quiet date, but not terribly loud. We were seated at a long table that accommodated 3 parties of 2 instead of at a private table, so it was a little harder to have intimate conversation but not impossible. Overall, it was a very nice date.
