Margaux Ratings and Reviews
We were seated next to a waiter station / exit area.
We asked to be moved due to this and the noise level of a neighboring group. When our food arrived it was lukewarm and the pastas’ in particular were mediocre. Unfortunately, the actual space is charming but we were dissatisfied with the food.
Great boutique hotel restaurant with a very European feel. Not fussy but nice and very cozy. Went for Brunch and def recommend the Kouign-amann Puff pastry which is worth the trip just for that and coffee!
Will def be back but server was just ok not engaging or helpful but would not deter me from going back and just a great spot to meet in lobby for drinks near the cozy fireplace.
This is my second visit to cafe Margaux. I love the ambiance and it's great for get togethers, both cozy and for large groups. It feels like a little bit of Paris in Greenwich Village. The portions are perfect and great for sharing. Extensive wine list and cocktails. Plan a visit and expect to linger, it's a great place just to catch up and linger.
I took a friend to Margaux for his birthday. He loved the old style look of the place and had never eaten there. I made the reservation and were seated at a wonderful table. Unfortunately the menu listed on line is not the menu that they had. The two things we had pre-decided to order weren't offered. The waiter stated that the menu changes every day. This is fine but then the restaurant shouldn't post an invalid menu. My friend is a vegetarian and there was only one entrée offered. We started with the Farmers board and were very disappointed when it arrived. Each of the selections were mashed up like baby food. And it's served with rather bland crackers. My friend was disappointed and suggested that we go elsewhere for dinner. The Hotel is gorgeous. I would recommend just going there for coffee to enjoy the surroundings.
We arrived promptly at 6:00pm. And chose to have drinks in the lounge area before we were seated at our table.
Thanksgiving dinner was good. I had a wonderful squid ink lobster pasta. Great Granache Spanish red wine.
We had a lovely time. Third time we had dinner here.
Will always come back.
Service is NY brusque, which is not necessarily a bad thing if you are a New Yorker, but Margaux takes it bit too far. For example, when I approached the reception area, the person there was talking to a fellow employee about nothing special and finished up (ca. 45 seconds) before turning to me. The server of my pasta (cavatelli in a thick undistinguished tomato sauce: avoid) departed quickly, without asking whether I wanted parmesan and/or freshly ground pepper, both of which would have improved the dish. It took a second request to get a glass of (decent) wine. None of this is terrible in itself, but overall it palls. On the plus side, my martini was dry without my having to ask (and they had Martin Miller gin, not a common brand). My recommendation is go to nearby Knickerbocker instead.
The food was good and the wait staff were all friendly. The only weird thing was that they brought the main dishes out at the same time as the appetizers for some reason. We had a small table, so all of the dishes were crammed together, and it meant that the main dish food was cold by the time we got to it.
My husband and I spent our wedding night at The Marlton and dined at Margaux. The entire experience was perfect for the occasion. We prefer quiet dining and the garden room delivered. I don't think the same can be expected of the indoor dining room - it was chatty but not overwhelming. Margaux is best described as intimate. The food and wine were delicious.
We hadn't been to Margaux's in quite a few years, but we decided to go for our anniversary on Monday because it's close by and they had a special prix fixe menu all evening. It did not disappoint, from the crab-cake appetizer to my husband's salmon and my steak, and our creme brûlée and blueberry tart desserts, all were excellent. It was moderately crowded yet service was excellent.
Globally, we had a good time but the place was empty on a Sunday for brunch which kind of kills the ambiance. But better that than waiting 2 hours I guess.
The waiter was really nice and the French fries were good but the food was not outstanding. One friend for the scrambled eggs with wild salmon and the presentation was a joke: it was just eggs on one side, wild salmon thrown on the other side of the plate and a plain toast. no presentation effort whatsoever. I would not go back there.
Everything was delicious. Standouts were the smoked fish platter and my crispy chicken sandwich. Great professional service. Can't vouch for dinner, but if you want to have an actual human lunchtime conversation in a beautiful, relaxed environment, go here.
We were there for a very late mother's day brunch. We were one of only three tables when we arrived and quickly thereafter we were the only table. Initially getting service was pretty rough which was disappointing considering they were not very busy. But eventually they got into the groove. The food was delicious. The atmosphere is nice. Not sure what its like when it's full.
My friend and I dined at Margaux for lunch on a Friday afternoon. Keep it in mind it is within the Marlton Hotel, so you will see a few travelers in/out. The restaurant is through the hotel lounge and bar. A handful of people were on their laptops or just reading. It's a great place to come solo during the day. I can see it getting busy at night. My friend and I were seated in the garden in the back. It feels like a peaceful oasis away from 8th street. The menu consists of sandwiches, and a few entrees, definitely cozy comfort style cuisine. The staff were friendly and efficient. We stayed for over 3 hours and no one bothered us. It 's a lovely place to bring a date to, or book a booth with family and/or friends. I would definitely come back.
