I live nearby but haven’t been back to Margaux in some time. It is still filling up at dinner time so the noise level is medium to high. The food has slipped a bit - the beef was tasty but quite fatty. Overall it was an “okay” experience but for the price, I would expect more.

Regular visitors to this local restaurant but never fails to impress. New menu (with some old favourites still) with excellent ingredients, well presented and served by discrete but professional and friendly staff

This is the second time I've been to Margaux and again I have been impressed with the quality of the dishes. The food is tasty and the service is great. Both visits I have taken friends from out of town there and they really enjoyed it.

Next time would request upstairs seating. We were seated in the basement which has no view and was less lively.

The service was impeccable and ambience relaxing and classy. Thought the tuna tartare a bit fishy and the foie gras sweet versus traditional savory rich flavor. Scallops were good but duck breast was super good.

This was my third time dining here and it has proven to be consistently good. Excellent food, conciliatory & knowledgeable staff, and a welcoming atmosphere. Also, not a Mickey Mouse t-shirt in sight.

We had a table for 7 at 1945 hrs and closed the restaurant down! The menu is good and the quality of food even better. A smallish but nicely diverse wine list provided a good selection to match the food choices. The waitstaff (Gabriel et al) were very attentive and welcoming. The restaurant is "snug", maybe too snug for larger groups, but very intimate. We had a super evening and will return when we can.

Very good food, the chocolate sphere as dessert was definitely my favourite part of the meal, simply delicious! The waiters were very friendly and professional at the same time. I'll recommend this place to my friends, as it's a real neighbourhood gem.

We were expecting more from this place. The restaurant is nice and the service good. We were quite disappointed with the deserts. Overall it is a good place for lunch or dinner if you are nearby.

We thoroughly enjoyed our pre-Prom dinner at Margaux. The service was excellent and food very good. When we couldn't decide between two rosés on the wine list, the waiter happily brought us both to try. The portion of foie gras was extremely generous and delicious, the salad was a refreshing and interesting combination of endive, tomatoes and watermelon. Our main courses were very good - roasted fresh sea bass on a tasty mix of courgette, tomatoes and langoustines, and very tender beef Bourgignon with deliciously creamy polenta. I enjoyed the elderflower millefeuille with raspberries. The place is modern and intimate - the music wasn't entirely to my taste so I would have preferred it to be a little softer, but that was a minor niggle. I would definitely recommend this lovely neighborhood restaurant.

I had a lovely meal with my mom at Margaux - the wine was perfectly paired with a few assorted dishes that we split. After hosting her in London for a few days, this was our most favorite meal of the visit due to the fantastic flavors and interesting dishes in an atmosphere that had a good bistro vibe. I will definitely be back soon!
