"Fans attest quality is everything at Cookie Till's legendary Margate New American where well-trained servers offer on-target suggestions from the menu of excellent locally sourced fare and extensive wine list; the mood is upbeat in the multiroom space that's usually packed with an ‘in' crowd, which is why regulars recommend reservations in the summer and on weekends year-round."

    This was my first visit to your restaurant. I ordered the filet and added the crab imperial to my steak for the additional $14 (?) I ate less than half my Steak, 1 or 2 bites of the lump crab. Our waiter was good but busy so another server asked if he could box up my dinner. #1. The box was given to one of the other guests at my table , fortunately they came back to my home for coffee and dessert and we were able to make the switch #2 when I opened my box to put the leftovers in a plastic container my crab imperial was NOT included with my leftovers and that really angered me because I purposely saved my crab to be enjoyed Sunday! And the extra that I paid for was waisted! I immediately called your restaurant but of course got voicemail and so I left a message about my experience. Of course I did not hear back from anyone. Honestly, I didn’t expect to hear back ! I had heard so many good things about your establishment and was happy that we were able to FINALLY GET A TABLE! But my experience left me disappointed. Sincerely , Sandra Morlino

    Food and service are excellent. Unfortunately the noise level is barely tolerable. The Restaurant Week offerings, though not inventive, were really tasty. We will return, in the off season of course.

    If you like a restaurant with great food, service, and atmosphere, this is the place for you! If you like white tablecloths this is the place for you! What makes it interesting is the fact that each room has its own ambiance. I cannot say anything negative....

    We went to our family’s favorite restaurant to Celebrate our Son and Daughter’s birthdays. Although we try to go to Steve and Cookies as often as possible every time we go it is outstanding. This meal was six of us, and everybody enjoyed everything. The food and service, as always were outstanding. The pace was relaxing and enjoyable. The consistent excellence is the reason it has been our favorite restaurant for many years.
