    Thus restaurant is CLOSED!! My husband and I had made reservations for a very special dinner out. When we arrived it was obvious the restaurant part was closed. The very small bar was open. They had a very, very small bar food menu we could have ordered from. We were very disappointed to say the least. The young bartender was very nice apologized profusely said they have tried to get this off of OpenTable with no luck, unfortunately we left not knowing where to go at that time for dinner. We were able to get reservations while standing on the sidewalk to another very nice restaurant. Needless to say we will not be using OpenTable anymore for fear of this happening again.
    MargauxResponded on March 29, 2024
    Dear Sandra, The restaurant remains open for dinner service from 5 pm to 10 pm, consistently without any closures. Currently, we offer a dinner menu, and we're also in the process of developing a new menu set to debut in April 2024. Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and we assure you that we will thoroughly investigate and make necessary improvements to enhance our service. Warwick Seattle

    During dinner time , They only had one server that was also the bartender and bussed the tables. Very nice guy and did his best but the restaurant is severely under staffed.

    On a blustery rainy and cold morning the dining room was quiet. Our breakfast (avocado toast with perfect poached eggs and classic eggs/bacon/toast) was served in a timely manner by friendly staff who also served as hostess. Dining room is in a French feeling dark wood room with adorned ceiling and red velvet curtains at the entrance. Cozy place 1 block from Amazon spheres.

    When I made the reservation I thought it was another place. I was surprised to find it is a hotel restaurant. No one at the door to check us in, no one came to us, we had to walk to the very back of the place to get someones attention and be sat. Our waiter/waitress, was very nice and friendly. The food was good, nothing to write home about but good.

    The food was so so, the service was excellent. They left a piece of tin foil on a piece of cheese in my salad. They discounted it by 20% but biting into tin foil is jarring. Should have comped it.

    Went to Margaux for Christmas dinner, as it was one of few places open on Christmas. Evidently several staff called in sick, so the only service staff was a hotel front desk guy standing in as hostess and the only waiter, and the bartender who also was busing tables. To their credit they made a great effort but the service was disappointing. I felt sorry for them. The food was served promptly, but was just mediocre. Maybe not fair to judge on Christmas Day.

    Our big problem was that you made a confirmed reservation for us when the restaurant was not actually open! We noticed that from their website and went earlier. So you need to get more accurate information when making reservations. Our waitress was very nice. However, their restaurant visa machine wasn't working so she took our cards to the hotel desk. We were not able to leave the tip on the credit card. Fortunately we had some cash for a tip. The biggest problem is that we ended up with an$1800 fraudulent charge that appears to have taken place from the hotel!

    Sorry to say, we did not end up eating here for a planned birthday dinner. While we booked on OpenTable, our table of 6 was not ready for us. Then when I opened the menu, it was not even close to the menu posted on OpenTable and their website. Which to say the least, was disappointing. The staff person who served us our cocktail while we were planning where to go to dinner was very nice and understanding. They stated that they have told the GM that this issue needs to be addressed as they have had other complaints.

    We were the only guests there upon arrival, 7:15 on a Saturday night. That was the first red flag. Our server was good. I needed to use the washroom. It turns out, I had to go into the hotel and take an elevator downstairs, where the pool and gym are. Not only that, I had to have a hotel key to use said washroom. The key did not work. I went up to the lobby desk and asked for another key. The person pulled a key from his back pocket and said, "I know for sure this one works, I just used it." Kind of gross; second red flag. I told the server, and she sincerely apologized. She was clearly embarrassed at the setup. The salads were basic and uninteresting. Certainly not of a chef's standard. The entrees were uninspired at best. We won't be returning to Margaux.

    It was alright. The food was average, yet expensive. I think it was quantity over quality. We had the bruschetta appetizer and it was way too much tomato, messy to eat. Left most of it on the plate. My salmon was overcooked.  the food took so long to get, I didn’t dare send it back, but I didn’t eat at all either.

    Went there for Mother's day after looking at their special brunch menu. Seemed they were short staffed as the Mother's day menu did not really exist. Food was decent but closer to diner than fine dining. Supposedly they are famous for eggs benedict, but that wasn't even on the menu. Not bad but dissapointing and didn't match expectations.

    I think we misunderstood this place - thinking it was fine dining and not just your standard hotel restaurant. The servers kept misunderstanding that we were not hotel guests, an indication that they typically only have hotel guests to dine there. The food was OK and the service was very solicitious, if a little confused. However, when considering the price (over $100 for 2 people, one of which did have a couple of drinks), I regret choosing this restaurant. The menu when we went was extremely limited - as I recall, fish and chips, pasta alfredo, salmon, pot roast. I don't usually order alfredo at restaurants but felt I had to in the context of the limited choices. It was rich, creamy, cheesy as alfredo should be but very salty. I mainly ordered it for the mushrooms and there were a total of 5 mushroom slices in the whole dish and few scattered, sauce-soaked cubes of chicken. We ordered the bruschetta as an appetizer and the bread was soggy, the tomatoes had the flavorless, mushy quality they get when they have been refrigerated. My daughter ordered the fish and chips which was (thank goodness) crisp and not overcooked but the tartar sauce it came with was just your standard from a bottle stuff, mayo with relish.

    I would rather not write this terrific review because the quiet, great food, and caring service may go away if this place gets too crowded. Super food--I had linguine Bolognese and my wife that the shrimp and chips plus clam chowder. Super. Charming wood heavy decor like the old hotel it is in (Warwick). Don't let this gem get away.

    We were staying at the hotel and needed to accommodate a large group, so this worked. Food was okay (though they were out of several items). Our server was new, and though I really wanted to chalk it up to “learning curve,” I couldn’t. They made errors on every single order, went long times without coming take our orders (we were the only table), and had to be asked multiple times about missing drinks and other items.

    Everything was delicious; service was attentive but not overbearing; the bartender was extra generous with the rum in our cocktails; we ordered just the right amount of food to enjoy ourselves without getting overstuffed. Great way to spend our last pre-quarantine evening out; let's hope Margaux is still there when restaurants reopen.

    I guess we were expecting a better experience knowing the location and close it is to Jazz Alley. The hostess was wonderful the wait staff kind of underwhelming, had to wait a while to get a drink. The menu was limited I guess because of Valentines day so that was a bit of a bummer. It wasn't that busy in the restaurant so not sure why the limited menu. pricing was what you would expect but really we were kind of bummed with it. Kind of thought we should have just had dinner at Jazz alley.

    We went here for their valentine dinner special. Most other restaurants were fully booked. The waitress asked how our food was before we even ate and did not refill our water at all. The food was average. Crab cake and chowder was very flavorful. My seafood with risotto had shells or sand that made some of my bites very unpleasant and difficult. My partner’s steak and broccoli were also average, broccoli did not have any seasoning, just boiled. We took our dessert to go, but the packaging was messy. For a $160 3 course meal for two, it was not worth it.

    The bartender was nice; busy and still managed to be attentive. She went above and beyond to accommodate our party. Our server was rushing, no idea why. Although the bar area was full, there was literally no one else in the restaurant area. He was anxious and didn’t create a relaxing vibe. The place is very nice, food delicious and drinks good. We have fish tacos, coconut shrimp and ahi tuna. All tasty and priced ok considering this is downtown Seattle. Good HH from 4-7. Parking is validated. Give it a shot!

    We booked this reservation coming from the Tri Cities. After I booked I specifically called to make sure we could order off the menu and was told yes. It was buffet. Our reservation was for 6.45 and the service staff were more interested in setting up for the breakfast service than looking after our table of 9. We had to ask for plates to be cleared. We would not book at this resturant again.
