It was my daughter’s birthday and this place was outstanding. Great mixed drinks abs service. It was a total score. I’ll be back.

The food was good, the atmosphere excellent, and the prices fair. The staff were pleasant and the service was prompt once we got someone's attention, but honestly, nobody paid any attention to us for a long time at every interval (it took a long time to place our order, and then a long time to order dessert, and then a long time to get the check). Once ordered, food came promptly and as I said it was delicious and the waitstaff was friendly, but it was weird to be ignored for long periods. I should add that the restaurant was not crowded at all, which made it weirder that the service was less than attentive. I would say the overall experience was good, nevertheless, because we weren't in a rush and we chose the place partly for the atmosphere, which was not disappointing at all. So consider this a good review, but tainted a little by the weirdly slow service. I'm not a fan of service being a big part of restaurant reviews, so please pay more attention to the good food and lovely decor. Charming place!

This is a very special place with ambiance in spades, and to make it even better our amazing server went above and beyond for me. I ordered off the menu so I could stick to a diet, and he even let me see the nutritional label on the bottle of almond milk so I could check on the carbs in it. Our table of four all loved our food, and the server could not have been more knowledgeable or good humored. Perfect brunch plus four dining experiences to choose from with room dining spaces ranging to outside, armchairs and coffee tables around the fireplace, banquets near the, bar, the art deco touches in the main dining room, and the skylight back terrace are ALL magical. I can't wait to come back.

Food was good, ambience very nice (outside seating), but service a little soft. Waiter was great, but it just felt sluggish. Was it just me? Still, I do like staying at the hotel and eating there.... Would recommend....

The service is really lacking. Attention disappears once you sit down. it's a shame as the restaurant is very close by and makes for an easy brunch spot.

Have enjoyed this restaurant a few times - we have family in the neighborhood. Food is wonderful and service has always been great. Only small negative is that it's a bit noisy. But we do enjoy the atmosphere!

This place, located in a hotel, is really nice. Tables, booths, bar, you name it. The ambiance in the front is very cosy, the "covered terrace" is bright and nice too. It was my first time there and I will definitely go back.

The only saving grace was the cheese board, it was phenomenal. Unfortunately everything else was sub-par. The service was inattentive, especially for how empty the place was and after we mentioned we were rushing a bit to get to a show. Our entrees were also just boring and bland, definitely not worth the price. There are plenty of better places in the neighborhood eat for that amount of money.

A lovely place to have a leisurely breakfast, with great choices. Service is friendly and attentive. Don’t miss the fireplace in the lobby area of Marlton Hotel, where you can linger over coffee (and food). A great find in the heart of the Village

Lovely hotel restaurant where we met friends for breakfast. Food was delicious, although the menu was oddly limited (gluten free bread basket, but no gluten full fresh baked goods for example!) and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Would definitely recommend!

Margaux is in a charming space in a fun hotel, and the food is good if not exceptional. But it's fairly noisy and the service from our waiter was appalling. He lied to us about the contents of a cocktail we ordered (we asked for a brand of vodka Margaux doesn't carry and he told us they did, not telling us that he'd be replacing it with something we didn't want), challenged us obnoxiously when we asked for a slight variation on a pasta dish (we requested it not come with sausage because we don't eat pork for religious reasons), and generally ignored us the rest of the time. We're not difficult customers--in fact we go out of our way to be friendly and polite to waitstaff--but this guy clearly has competence and attitude problems, and apparently so does Margaux if they hired him and keep him employed there. If they want a loyal clientele they need to do much better.

The service was soooooo slow that it felt bizarre. Food was good but nothing special. I had braised kale and scallops.
Both were good but little too salty, even for me (I tend to like more heavily seasoned food). The slowness really weighed on the experience for me.

Always pleasant. The restaurant only busy with a few tables. I just don't think people know or book this given it's in the hotel and not some super fancy name. It's always a solid choice and the bar area is nice too. Would be an ideal place to go for a dinner when you want to be able to talk, or with parents.

This was my third time at the restaurant and my friend’s first. We both enjoyed a light lunch of butternut squash soup plus a side of meatballs that we shared. The service was a little slow despite there being only a few tables occupied. My cappuccino took a while to appear and I had to remind the server. Other than that the decor and setting provide a tranquil escape midday.

Love the charm and relaxing environment! Hotel originally built in 1900 and updated 2012 keeping the beautifully detailed woodwork and marble everywhere! Hotel was for long stays and housed Lillian Gisch and many other famous people throughout the years. Love it!

The oysters were delicious. My wife had a pasta dish that was good (not fantastic) and I ordered the steak. I ordered the steak medium-rare. The problem was that the steak was closer to well done. To his credit, the waiter walked by as I cut into it and said that it was over cooked and took it back without me saying a word. After sitting for 20 minutes watching my wife eat her meal, the second steak arrived. This time it was medium to medium well. The waiter also noticed this, but since I needed to have something to eat, I decided not to have a third try at it. While this doesn't seem like a big a issue, at $40, the kitchen should know how to cook a steak properly.

The ambience and décor is wonderful and some of our meals were good, like the oysters and the pork entrée. But the chicken dish was dry and the red quinoa was bland and uninteresting. The waiters were average but the manager was very responsive so I'll definitely give it another try.
