"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."

I thought the place was way too
loud and crowded. Tables too close together and it felt congested.
I ordered my filet medium well and it was red and didn’t taste right. I got crab imperial and it was so dark in the restaurant I couldn’t tell that from the mashed potatoes.
Very disappointed

The only thing that would’ve made it perfect is if my server had asked me if I would’ve liked another drink (I would have).

The food was amazing! I was in AC for a conference and made reservations on a whim. I’m so glad I did! I had the salmon and my colleagues had the fillet. Everyone was very happy with their meals.

The food, service and accommodations are outstanding. We were a party of eight and the serving staff couldn't have been better. My sons had the pork chop and raved about it. Several of us had the salmon and it was great. Highly recommend the wedge salad but you might want to split it as it is huge!! Deserts were good too. Cookie really has her act together. If you want a night of fine dining you can't go wrong here!

Excellent dinner- the mushroom soup was flavorful with a tinge of smokiness- nice and creamy; the veal Milanese was great and very tender- the greens were nice and fresh- the grilled lemon was excellent- the bread especially the brown was outstanding; the creme brulee was perfection. The service was friendly, knowledgeable and perfect.

I was a party of 3. My dining partners enjoyed their selections. I ordered the duck and I have had it there previously. This time, it was so bad, I returned it. It was dry , tough and tasteless.
I am surprised it was served to me.

My cowboy steak was really tough . You need to buy minimum choice grade and should be dry -aged , costs a little bit more but well worth it .

It was our first time at this restaurant. I had heard so many good things about Steve and Cookies, I was unsure that it would live up to expectations. I shouldn't have worried though..... the staff, food, ambiance were just perfect! We'll be back!

We went for my 65th birthday and, once again, Mrs. Till was generous enough to give me a free dessert to celebrate! There was another birthday and anniversary while we were there. The food is consistent. Their lobster mac and cheese is the best - the béchamel sauce makes it so smooth and the bread crumbs give a nice contrasting crunch on the top. The problem is that we always order the same thing! If it were closer to our home we'd go more often and maybe try something else! Keep up the good work. What a well oiled machine.
