I have been to Margaux before and had a much better experience but that was also 1.5 years ago.
This time the service was extremely slow and the restaurant was nearly empty. The food was sub par to say the least. I ordered the bucatini which is supposedly one of the best things on the menu and it lacked all flavor- the lobster in the dish was chewy and tasted of rubber meanwhile the bucatini pasta itself was good everything else about the dish was honestly not even worth ordering. The only redeeming quality of the dinner was the french fries that came with the burger.

If youre going for appetizers or to sit outside, this is great! Otherwise - entree is a bit of a miss (lacked flavor) and the service was unfriendly.

Brunch menu looked interesting but execution was lacking. My scrambled eggs with cured salmon looked like it was from a diner and came with one small slice of toast.

Nice venue with less than diner service. Mediocre food. But so much potential if someone managed it right. Why are you ignoring the reviews on consistently awful service?

Although the food was good and our server was attentive, the host was not welcoming and the bartender stopped pouring our glasses of preseco for some reason. I made a reservation to celebrate a friends birthday and one of the guests brought two balloons. When I asked the host where I could put them, she said: "I don't care as long as they are not in the way". I then went to our table and wrapped them around chairs on my hands an knees while the host and others stood watching me with their arms crossed. Not one person asked if they could assist me, I was very confused by that. Working as a host myself, I would never say to a customer "I don't care" and I would CERTAINLY assist them to ensure the balloons would be placed where they wouldn't bother anyone; I work there, I would know best. The $700 spent was not worth it considering the lack of service.

Would I recommend Margaux to a friend? Hmmm... maybe. If they are looking for a beautiful space for a mediocre drink or meal. I thought the food was a bit overpriced for the quality and the service was pretty bad. My drink was empty before the waiter even came to take our food order and I don't drink quickly. Actually it wasn't even our waiter. My husband had to flag down someone else because our waiter would not stop at our table.

A cozy, old fashioned West Village restaurant, perfect for a winter supper. Super cute and comfortable with an easy comfortable menu - lots of pastas, roast chicken, burgers. Slightly expensive for the size of the plates - on the other hand, it IS the West Village and the location is unbeatable. We loved the farmer's plate appetizer, the scallops were delicious and so was the burger - grass-fed, which is crucial. However, the kale salad was dry and hard and not even worth eating which is somewhat shocking in today's kale-centric world. Sadly, coming from LA, the gluten-free and vegan options are limited, too.

Very nice restaurant with a cool vibe. Good cocktails. Food was very good, but menu, a bit limited. Also a bit heavy, not many choices for something lite although the scallops we're great.

Nutella ice cream sandwiches we're huge and not tasty. May want to try that one again. Cookies were hard and not sure where the Nutella was.

Margaux is a great place to go if you just want some food that you know is going to be good and simple. I’ve been there a few times now. Everything on the menu is outstanding. The cocktails are delish. They have a nice little patio area or they have sumptuous round booths. I almost don’t want to hype this restaurant because I love how easy it is to eat there. I always feel great after a meal there.

I've been here before and was disappointed in this visit. The waitress was sweet but very green....we ordered white wine and she just poured, no tasting. Then she poured each of us huge glasses almost to the too - why??? I was trying to say stop but it was too late. Ordered apps first - thank goodness we didn't order entrees at same time. Apps out in 2 minutes, ordered entrees later, out in FIVE minutes. I had risotto! Mushy, gross. It was like everyone in the kitchen had a party to go to and wanted to clear out the place as fast as possible. It's a f riday, and this isn't pre theater- what in the world is the rush? We were super irritated. Very different from past experiences, won't be rushing back.

The garden room is lovely for an early weekday dinner - the plants and the light create a special feeling. Menu was much more limited than what I saw on the website, which was disappointing. Food was ok (except for very skimpy amuse bouch) but nothing that would draw me back. Maybe return just for drinks next time.

Lovely in many ways, but am thinking of not going again simply because every time I go, drinks are shorted. Every single time. A cosmo on the rocks in a small oval glass that costs 16 or 17 bucks shouldn't be 2/3 full, mostly with ice, right? There's something going on with the bartender that needs to be corrected.
