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.
It was in 1 word AMAZING!!!
Food was lovely,
The interior beautiful
The staff wonderfull
The ambiance great!!
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.
Terrific meal for a special occasion! Service was spot on from start to finish. Food was as good as anywhere else I have been.
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
The food was delicious and good value. The staff were really friendly and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere was perfect. I would definitely go back to try some of the other dishes.
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.
Amazing risotto with truffle!
Lovely lunch, good menu, great staff. Will be back
Excellent food with fabulous service. Not cheap, but for a special night out worth the expense.
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.
Pre-theatre dinner. It was perfect but I’d love to go back for a more leisurely longer dinner...and I will!
Margot never fails to deliver. Great decor/ambience, fantastic service and consistently great food. Definitely one of the top Italian restaurants in London an£ well worth a visit,
We absolutely loved this place! Lovely food, ambiance and service.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal hear and agreed that is was definitely on our list to go back. Food was lovely and service excellent- we had a lovely table and liked the buzz around us which was pleasant and not overwhelming. I slight problem with my meal was corrected immediately and the apology was meaningful and appreciated. We will be back!
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
Did you speak to the manager in charge? We take every complaint very seriously and would have loved to have made amends at the time. Could you please send us your details so we can contact you or phone us on 0203 409 43777 Margot management
The food was quite good but nothing amazing, while the service was great and very professional. Located in a good spot as well in Covent Garden.
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!
Lovely food which was beautifully presented, and the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, providing excellent service.
It’s a lovely, luxurious but comfortable place to eat. The food was delicious. It’s expensive but as a treat in beautiful surroundings I would highly recommend it.
It had been some time since I last visited Margot restaurant but this time I booked it because I wanted to be sure that I would have a good meal and excellent service. We were not disappointed at all.
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.
Very elegant and great customer service but Way too pricey for the food
Amazingly attentive service is a low key (informal) environment. The food was simply stunning. Highly recommended.
Our once a year visit to Margot where we always get superb attention and food. Have never been disappointed. Thank you Margot. See you again next year for our birthday/anniversary meal.
Lovely experience and food was delightful
We were given a special table as I had booked for my husbands birthday
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!
Really enjoyed the evening - would definitely go again. poached Duck Egg was too rare for my liking but other than that can't fault the food or the service.
We ordered from the set menu. On our last visit the food was very good but this time disappointing. The staff however are excellent and the restaurant very pleasant
Food was FABULOUS! Ingredients fresh and delicious. The staff was well trained, knowledgeable and accommodating. I will make sure to let any of my friends/coworkers know that Margot is a must when looking for fine dining in London!
Some of the best Italian food in London! The Pasta is al dente the sauces sublime!
And Service is excellent! Can't wait to go back!
The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff were all absolutely lovely and despite having a 2 hour booking we were never hurried or rushed. Would definitely recommend and indeed have already done so
All around enjoyable
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!
Beautiful restaurant, food and service. Would highly recommend.
Great setting, enjoyable food special tuna pasta of the day was fantastic.
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!
