About

"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

Why didn't I get points for this reservation?

The food was great and was matched by the same great service.

Went here to try out their AC restaurant week menu. We had Joanne as a server and she was outstanding! She was super friendly & courteous. We will definitely be dining there again soon!

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....

Surprising! Much more of a dining experience than simply not wanting to cook & going out. Piano music set the tone for an unique night out.

We are restaurant week groupies, Sunday is usually Steve and Cookies. It never disappoints. I am always amazed not only at the quality of the food but also the attentiveness of the wait staff, because they are BUSY. It is a joy to dine here.
