Great Gourmet French Food and Superb Unfailing Service From the time your are Greeted at The Hostess Station By Nicole. Brian And his associates were great.
Beautiful place, great wine, decent service but food came out cold with over cooked eggs. They definitely have a disconnect between the servers and the kitchen. Disappointing lack of execution. Expected more, especially given the VERY over priced wine. Great selections but sky high mark up.
I loved our experience here. However, our server was very moody and short with us. It was my birthday and our sides came out 20 minutes after our main meals. The food runners and people running stuff from the bar were awesome. Our server WAS HORRIBLY UNPLEASANT!
We definitely love our seating arrangement by the corner where we have a city view. The receptionist is very friendly and accommodating so do the servers.
The food was very good except we did not know what to order for how hungry we were. [we drove almost 2 hrs.]
In any where I eat I had always wished there are descriptions as to how much a portion is per size and weight.
All over though we enjoyed our brunch.
We went to Margeaux for our 35th anniversary brunch. The staff could not have made us feel more special. Champagne was waiting upon our arrival and there was a handwritten anniversary note on the table. Beautiful touch. Food? Best eggs benedict I have ever had; rosti potatoes words cannot describe. Service? The entire staff was great and a special shoutout to James. Thank you and you will be seeing us again soon.
Really enjoy dining here. Service, food and comfort factor are main reasons to return.
Wonderful! Thank you!
A nice place to dine in the Gold Coast. Loved the Bibb salad with just the right amount of dressing. The foie gras with the waffles was outstanding too. My friend suggested we order and split the New York strip. I normally order a small fillet so for me it was too fatty and tough to cut with a steak knife. Service was spot on. We had a nice table and the atmosphere was lovely and confersation friendly.
This was an OUTSTANDING dinner. The staff was amazing, the food great. Loved it!
The food was great. Our waiter fabulous! Will be back.
Food is OK. Service was pretty bad. It seems they hired pretty junior servers.
Corn veloute soup was divine but the warm donut with lemon curd stole the show!
excellent food, superb customer service!! Excellent dining option for dinner and brunch!
Outstanding food. Can’t wait to come back-!!
It is an elegant and beautiful atmosphere. I was there for my fiance's birthday. It was the most wonderful experience and the staff was extremely accommodating! The chef sent out a special dish for us to taste and it was impeccable among all the other food. I ordered the duck breast which was cooked to perfection and my fiance absolutely loved the half maine lobster! I couldn't rave about this place more.
Food was delicious. Service was horrific. Waited over 15 minutes past our reservation time. Waited 15 minutes for first drink. Completely lost in system between courses. Ordered 2nd drink and entrees arrived @ 5 minutes later. 2nd drink came 15 minutes after entrees. Ridiculous. Had to flag down servers multiple times. Expected a lot more from spot in our neighborhood that has been open this long. Won’t be back anytime soon and we eat out 5x week!
amazing vegan options as well fantastic classic french fare.
The cuisine is absolute french perfection in a classic, warm brasserie atmosphere. Had the escargot, Duck Legs A L'Orange, Warm tomato Tatin for appetizers. Heaven! For dinner, Swordfish, Filet and Macaroni Gratinee. Everything was delightful from start to finish. Can not wait to go back!
Delicious but expensive
Stayed at the Waldorf and had heard good things about this restaurant. The food was quite, quite good — rustic French bistro fare done perfectly. Service was very attentive after a small issue with the bar, amiable and informed. Not sure why we were seated in the booths opposite the noisy bar, but if noise is an issue for you (it is for us), ask to be seated in the peripheral areas that are separated from the bar, probably also know as the dining room.
We`ve been to the restaurant several times now. Like the ambiance enough to keep going back. No more. We took friends for a special occasion dinner. They had never been to Margeaux. The waiter was pretty bad. Asked for a different color napkin. Took him forever, then it was not what our guest asked for. She ordered wine and it never came until I got up and asked another server for assistance. The waiter never came to the table to asked if there was anything else he could do.
The limited menu could use some updating. The Cholette steak[sp.?] is pretty bad...very tough. The bouillabaisse was good, but too small a portion, and I`m a light eater.
Don`t think our quests were impressed either. Not a word about their dinners.
Great find with good food and great friendly service. Looking forward to a return visit.
Lovely food, we couldn't fault anything.
One side didn't come out with the mains but as we asked about it, the waiter immediately stated it was his mistake and it would be taken off the bill.
Came for Sunday brunch... while the food and initial service including Sommelier were excellent, our waiter Jack took our appetizer order, returned and informed us that kitchen closed at 2 so we placed our main course at 1:50. 30 minutes passed(2:30pm) before we saw our entrees after the appetizer so wondering if the kitchen really closed then?? Was the staff eating? One of my eggs benedict was overcooked so perhaps under a lamp? Hmm. Still tasted superb, but I would not return for brunch...I expect they are much more on point during dinner service (It was my birthday but that's not the point-I declined any mention of complimentary dessert as I am more savory than sweet)
Food was exceptional but the wait time between was unacceptable. In addition, had to ask for the appetizer to be wrapped and then had to ask fo fresh cutlery as who wants to use the same fork for a fish roulette and then on a sweet pancake dish. Yes, this is a hotel restaurant that during the week serves 3 meals a day, however, It is the Waldorf and having been in the hospitality industry, you can never slip in service.
Fit for a PATIENT foodie...and maybe a second bottle of wine ;)
Classic french food served in a wonderful dining area. Superb location. Maybe our expectations were too high given the chef's reputation, but, the food was nothing to write home about. The most disappointing part of the experience was the service. Inattentive, glaxcially slow, dismissive at times, we both actually thought that our server was nursing a hangover. For this reason alone, I cannot recommend this establishment.
When I visit a restaurant at this price-point, I expect the quality of both the food and service to be excellent. I was incredibly disappointed in Margeaux Brasserie. When I checked in 5 minutes to 10am, I was told that brunch wasn't starting until 10am and so wasn't seated. Then, once we did get seated, the table was not even set for the 4 people in my reservation. It then took a long time to get the additional settings was staggering. The omelet I had tasted ok, but was a far cry from what I've had at less expensive restaurants.
Everything was great. Especially the service and food. My wife who’s pregnant could not drink alcohol so the bartender made her a mocktail with peach juice, soda water and a little rosemary. She said it was delicious. The filet we had reminded us of one we had in Paris. We will be back.
We just had the most amazing meal with the best service. This jewel of Chicago is a true Parisian experience with the most outstanding ambience, food, and wine. Margeaux has changed the Chicago restaurant scene for me, forever. I will definitely be back. Whoever decides not come is missing out on a life changing food experience.
Requested a date on OpenTable app- restaurant seated us in our own quiet corner and when I got up to go to the adorable bathroom the rest of the restaurant’s sound was well contained. The beef tartare was some of the best I’ve had. We shared small plates - 1/2 doz oysters, bread service with the best butter, beef tartare, moules frites and a banana dessert. The server was very knowledgeable and came always at the best time and not too much. The margeux 75 was a fabulous cocktail with yellow chartreuse, the server impressed us again when her knowledge. I will think about this experience and remember a fabulous memorable time.
We were greeted with a hand written card and two glasses of champagne for our anniversary. Our table felt incredibly intimate, despite being around 2 or 3 other groups of people. Little gem salad, filet, New York strip, pommes purée, baked Alaska- all were delicious. The sommelier was incredibly helpful, even letting us try a 2nd bottle side-by-side after the first bottle she opened for us was not at its best. The highlight for us, though, was the macaroni gratinee. So creative!
Great food and service!
Celebrated a birthday at Margeaux's brunch. Décor was perfect for a Parisian brasserie. The staff was exceptionally attentive. Every waiter stopped to greet us. Food was perfect in presentation and tastes. Definitely will go back.
Beautiful interior, great wine list but a bit pricey and food was delicious. Service was hit and miss and a bit too complicated for a Brasserie style setting. Bar looked great which we have to try next time.
French brassiere food that has been elevated. Service was great all around. Very unpretentious sommelier. Not cheap, but we didn’t we cheated either.
This place is pricey, but it is not fussy - good French food, excellent service, and a lovely flaming baked Alaska.
We went for the Monday $35 3-course dinner. They also offer several selections of wines by the bottle that are 1/2 price on Mondays. Good value and fine food.
The service is outstanding. Limited menu - great food! The ambiance is awesome very comfortable.
Highly recommended - will be back!
Great service and food. Delicious bread. Chef was friendly and open to suggestions
