Based on food and service alone this is a superb place to dine. However, it now appears to have become a little too well known. It's very difficult to hold a conversation and the free standing tables and chairs are far too close together. A waitress had to move the table in order for my partner to stand up! Have dined here before without these issues. There are other restaurants with the same positive attributes but not the downside. We shall not be returning.

Lovely Lovely, elegant interia (upstairs - downstairs has no windows so while light not as welcoming as upstairs). Seating/tables really well organised, plenty of corner seats which is great for couples.
We had the fixed price lunch and shared our dishes, for dessert we could not pass up on the zabaglione (a rarity to see this on a menu these days!) all our courses were delicious. Staff were excellent just the right balance between attentive but not intrusive. Great choice of wines with plenty being available by the glass and carafe. Highly recommended although I’d advise asking to be seated upstairs.
elegant interia

We had been to Margot last year, and had the most amazing meal and service, so we decided to bring a group of friends back this time. Unfortunately we all left very underwhelmed. The service seemed frantic and confused this time, we had to track down staff on numerous occasions to refill drinks or remove plates. The waitress did not time our meal correctly, so we hadn't even properly finished our starters, and our pasta course came out - which had obviously already been sitting under the heat lamp for quite some time, and arrived barely warm and stodgy. Not what you want from a high-end Italian restaurant, or any restaurant for that matter. At the end, we again had to call out for a server to get our bill. And after our experience, paying £800 felt pretty insulting. Its a shame because I had such high hopes for our meal after our first experience at Margot. Hope they can turn it back around, because its a gorgeous little restaurant.

The truth is that the ambience in the upstairs ground floor restaurant is much nicer than the downstairs basement restaurant

Some very high points (lamb pasta; scallops; desserts) and a very few meh (swordfish carpaccio; duck egg). Great venue; great staff. Would happily go back.

WOW! Just wow! I came across this restaurant just by chance and thank god I did! From the welcoming staff to the table service the whole dinner and experience was excellent! All staff had their skills honed which made our dinner run like clockwork! The fingerprints being wiped off the glass doors and the floors being hovered to keep the restaurant spotless went undetected, everything was covered and did not interrupt our meal one bit!
The food was outstanding! The chefs and kitchen staff have to be applauded for their talents! Finest Italian food we have eaten in a very long time and we have just come back from Italy!
My fiancé and I could not fault anything and will 100% be returning!
Thank you to the staff at Margot for a wonderful evening.

Overpriced very average food super slow service. I imagine many of the rave reviews are FAKE. This place was extremely below the standard of other high end Italian restaurants I have been to in Rome, Florence, Milan, New York, Sydney etc

Wonderful food, service and ambience. A truly delightful restaurant. The noise level was a tad too high around us for our table of four, but other than that, this is a great place!

A throwback luxe restaurant where you are cosseted by every staffer as if you are a star. Glam Art Deco-ish decor. Elegant bar, romantic banquettes. Dress to impress; no sneakers here! Food is good northern Italian.. nice pasta, ragu sauces, risotto with the right amount of crunch. Expect to pay 100 pounds a person if you drink.

Don’t go! Overrated place!
Very limited and tasteless vegetarian menu - disaster place. And off course expensive and rip off especially given the quality and taste of food!

We were given a table downstairs. We didn’t find it particularly pleasant. It’s very noisy and not at all romantic - especially since we were celebrating our anniversary. Service was ok but felt the wait staff were all trying too hard to please. Food was not as good as it used to be. We returned the Osso buco as it was too tough and inedible. To be fair they did remove the cost from the bill. Not an overly pleasant experience and sadly will give this place a miss next time we’re in London

Loved this place! The food, wine and service were impeccable. Admittedly it would be out of my price range with the normal menu, but the small but perfectly formed pre-theatre menu was just what we needed. Will recommend to all my theatre loving friends!

Came to Margo’s feeling terrible with a heavy head cold & sinus infection. Our waiter was superb! Told us about his Italian grandmother’s age-old remedy - hot milk, honey & grappa. Might have had a lot to do with the grappa - but the honey & hot milk also helped - as did the wonderful attention & very personal service. Our waiter was new & on probation - surely he will become a permanent fixture at Margo’s! This restaurant was exemplary in every way!
