                                        Ate at Margaux for Mother's Day Brunch for our first time dining. Atmosphere was excellent and staff were excellent. While I booked many weeks in advance, all I could get was near the end of the brunch schedule, so some food was starting to run out or be a little dry, but it was still top notch. Service speed was a touch slow and the buffet was not explained to us, so it was a little frustrating to find an entire meat section at another area of the restaurant that we didn't know was there/available. I know Mother's Day brunch was more extravagant than a typical Sunday Brunch but I would recommend and love to go again.

                                        Everyone gave us excellent service. Our waitress was the only person that we were dissatisfied with. She got our order wrong blamed us the customer that we did not order the beet salad when we had ordered 2 of them. Our whole party remembered the order and we were told quite firmly and rudely that we had not ordered it. We were disappointed because last time we were at Margeax in Mar 2022 our waitress had been one of the best.

                                        We enjoyed our meal. The brussel sprouts appetizer was too salty, so we had to send it back. My wife had the trout and I had the pork chop. Both were very good. We didn't have dessert as we were full. Our server, Melissa, was excellent.

                                        Food was good for what it was, nothing special or exceptionally executed, just typical. Nothing that I would really go back for. Server was stretched and we waited a while for the check and between courses. Didn’t see server often, although she was sat across the restaurant.

                                        Some tables are nice, quiet, and near the outside wall; unfortunately there are some tables (for two) that are right in the main traffic-way and the noise and 'ambience' was quite poor. The food portions were small, especially for the price. Prices were high, especially for a glass of wine.

                                        The food was beautiful and well prepared. The service was a little slow, and the selection was less than I would have expected for 50 dollars a head- without cocktails. I will continue to look for a good Grand Rapids brunch buffet.

                                        I had the best steak I've ever had in my life. I've been to the chop house and Ruth Christ and their steaks didn't compare to Margaux's. It was a great dinning experience.

                                        Beautiful location and restaurant. The food was pricey and wasn't anything to write home about. We went for brunch and I ordered their hash option. It was 80% a pile of their "side" potatoes and then a very small portion of the actual hash. No way of adding extra meat/eggs.

Our waitress was very polished, at ease with our group of 4 and offered numerous suggestions from drinks through desert. It was very expensive, but the atmosphere, food, and service made it seem painless. thanks John

                                        On our first visit to Margaux we were quite impressed. High ceilings, modern ambiance, professional service, delicious food and nicely paced. Very good wines but not as many as I expected to see.

                                        Our server Liz was absolutely wonderful. We had shrimp cocktail, a bottle of excellent cabernet sauvignon, French onion soup, beet salad, boar pasta, and capped it all with espresso for my husband and cappuccino for me. We split every dish and had plenty to eat. Our only complaint was that the soup and pasta dish were quite salty, though we know our personal taste tends away from salt. Overall, we enjoyed a great meal and outstanding service.

                                        The food was delicious and deftly designed, especially the beet salad and the chèvre cheesecake. When I didn't see a vegan entree on the menu, I asked our waitress, Emma, what she would recommend. I thought she would point me to a salad, but she said that she would go talk to the chef, and he whipped up a delightful and tasty plate of tofu and vegetables. Now that is going above and beyond.

                                        What a fantastic experience! We were seated quickly and taken care of very well. The lovely surprise morning champagne to celebrate a special occasion was wonderful and even better was the juice in champagne flutes for the kids. They felt so special and included. I’d return here and gladly recommend it to anyone.

                                        Waitstaff was excellent. The husband’s steak was overcooked and his potatoes were undercooked soooo there’s a little quality control that’s needed in the kitchen.

                                        This restaurant was good when it was 616, but in the years since it became Margaux, it has gotten progressively better. They've settled into their French identity in terms of food, and offer very decent French cuisine (I would love to see bone marrow and escargot on the menu). This latest visit was a Hail Mary when it turned out we'd moved our plans to a day when another restaurant to which we had planned to go was not open. Everything our group had on this latest visit was excellent. I had Truite Meunière, and this is wonderful comfort food. My husband's salmon was very good. They have a fun interpretation of pasta con cinghiale on their menu. The drinks are creative, also, and nicely served. This bats, overall, way above the class of hotel restaurants, and to me, there is one other place downtown to get French cuisine, but think that for the most part, this is better. Recommend it!
