We’ve been wanting to try Margeaux Brasserie for awhile and decided to get together for a girls brunch to celebrate our bride-to-be friend. Our server, James, was absolutely fantastic!! He made our experience wonderful! The ambiance was cozy, food was fantastic and bottomless Rosè deal was on point! We will definitely be back!

The sommelier seemed knowledgeable.

The food and wine were excellent but the service and front of the house could be more attentive. We were seated 15 minutes after our reservation time and no one offered either seating at bar or to take a drink order while we waited outside the reception podium. Amuse bouche and bread service were also skipped, although there were plenty of tables receiving both.

There is no way to describe the Duck Wings. They are a class act. But it would be a sin to leave out the escargot & french onion soup.

To top it all off was the impeccable service from Nicole the Sommelier. Thx for the yummy wine choice.

Disappointing - I expected better from a Michael Mina restaurant. Living off the name of it's supposed Chef, and the Waldorf Astoria. No ambience and food was inconsistent while being highly priced. I would certainly not return.

The service and ambiance were excellent, but the food was definitely not worth the price tag. We had the duck breast and ribeye. Both were good, but we've had better versions of each. The duck breast sounded like it had fantaatic accompaniments, but they were small and relatively bland (the duck breast itself was enormous and prepared well). My ribeye was good, but oversalted, and really nothing remarkable. We did all love the wine selections, from a light Beaujolais nouveau to a strong Cabernet Sauvignon.

Unfortunately we were pretty disappointed today, and this is the third time in a row now where our service was way below par. We were having brunch with friends from out of town today and chose to make a 10am reservation to avoid any type of rush so they could make their flight. From the time we were sat, to the time we finally received our bill it took FOREVER!! We definitely felt forgotten about, it took quite a bit just for our husbands to get mimosas, and our Benedict’s weren’t very warm when they eventually came out. I think the most aggravating part of our experience was our server was hovering as he gave us the bill and eager to grab the credit cards....but then it took him ten minutes plus to run them only to return and try blame it taking so long on the computer system!! Today will most likely be the last time we eat here.

I want to sincerely apologize for the poor dining experiences. It is disappointing to hear that during multiple visits you experienced sub par service. I realize that there are many great options to dine at and that we would be lucky for you to give us another chance. I really hope that you do and that you make a reservation directly with me. I promise that we can deliver a better experience than what you have seen. Kind regards, JOSE C GONZALEZ |GENERAL MANAGER

From the moment my friends and I walked in it was a MISS. Seemingly understaffed- table was not clean, took forever to order, computers were down so checking out took extra long- not the Waldorf Experience.....food was marginal
