The food was delicious! The trout was perfect. 2 filets, skin on and cooked through without being dry. The tartare and mussels were also very well seasoned and the cocktails were amazing!

We just had a few times when we had food served without silverware and had to wait until someone realized and brought us the utensils or ran out of water. But given the quality of food, I can definitely look over those details.

I would recommend changing the music to match the theme of the restaurant.

Hostess said we were seven minutes early so they couldn’t seat us. Sat in bar and we’re very well attended to. Hostess sat us at a weird table sitting close to their computer. Service was so so. Food was good but kind of overpriced. Nothing special. Charcuterie was boring with just similar meats and cheeses, and some nuts. Used a wine glass for drinking red wine, but put white wine in it. Just not impressed.

We had a fantastic dining experience! The crafted cocktails, creative and delicious food and the wonderful service provided by Liz were top notch! Highly recommend the brussel sprouts, beet salad, wild boar campanelle and the hot seafood tower! We will be back!

Overall wonderful experience. The ambiance was the perfect amount of classy yet casual. We had the rainbow trout which unfortunately was pretty bland and oily. The greens on the side of the halved chicken dish was heavy on the vinegar. Wish their was more options for a side such as mashed potato’s or vegetables.

Went for my birthday as a special occasion and it just wasn’t up to par like it used to be when they first opened. Everything on the menu before before was hard to pick because there were so many delicious options this time there is only one that appealed to me and it was a New York strip which is not really my favorite. I don’t think I’ll be back for a while.

For the price, I wanted more exotic items, but what they had is very good. One of the few locations open on Christmas Day, I do appreciate the good attitude and quick service of the staff.

I was really excited to bring management from out of state to dine, and while I am never one to give a poor review and prefer to give praise and compliments, I hope the review is just looked as an opportunity.
I understand and empathize with the staff in shortage and incredible restrictions covid has placed on the food and beverage industry so that wasn’t our main issue.
Our server was pleasant and appeared to be incredibly busy while the restaurant itself didn’t seem too busy based on table sizes. I think he tried to do his best but our drinks were empty most of the evening.
The charcuterie board had 6 pieces of salami and prosciutto that was not pink and was very dry and salty. There was no bread or crackers served although the mustard and two jelly ramekins were filled to the top. There were only two pieces of thinly sliced cheese for the 3 selections.
The tomahawk pork chop was very good.
There was no steak in the restaurant which was disappointing for a Tuesday night.
My colleagues had the trout which was served with 2 fingerling potatoes which presented cold.
We are grateful for those in food and beverage and for those that prepare our food but it was just disappointing for a first time experience and with our of town guest.

We have always enjoyed eating at the Margaux. The food is good and the service is always excellent. My wife had the trout, which she enjoyed but it was a bit too salty. The brussel sprouts were the best she has eaten. I had the NY steak. It was very good. Again, a bit too salty. I would recommend ordering the food without salt. You can always add it at the table. Our server, Emma, was wonderful. We will ask for her again.

I've never written a scathing review before but this warranted it. We went there for my birthday dinner. My wife got the trout which she said was very good. I got the New York strip. It is no exaggeration that it was the WORST steak I've ever had anywhere (including Ponderosa). I ordered med-rare and I'm sure they tried but it was maybe an inch thick making it hard to do it right. It was tough, grisly and dry, practically inedible. I had to get another knife to cut it. I brought most of it home as my dog swallows whole anyways. Pretty expensive dog food. Yes, it really was that bad. I don't know where they source from but they should consider the local grocery store. Very disappointed for a special night.

We went here to celebrate our anniversary. The food was delicious, as always. We started with the charcuterie board, then Caesar salad, and the seafood tower, and the opera torte for dessert. Everything was so good! Our waitress was so attentive! I highly recommend this restaurant.

The ambiance was very open, I loved the floor to ceiling windows. I had a Cesar salad with salmon, it was excellent, not too much dressing so it was perfectly balanced. I also fetid their old fashioned, it was delicious, I believe it had maple syrup rather than sweet vermouth which was a good choice.

Margaux is a wonderful restaurant for a celebration dinner. The food was exquisitely prepared and delicious. The decor is very beautiful with a lovely ambience. It was very quiet when we arrived about 5:45 and the noise level rose just a bit as more diners arrived around 6:30-7:00. Very nice wine selection - not so extensive but a good variety of quality wines. Conveniently located with easy parking.
