Margaux's is a very good restaurant. I had the Weiner Schnitzel and my companion had the short ribs and both are excellent, large portions and expertly prepared. The service was top notch and I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Great Meal. Having dined at Margaux's many times, it still is nice to see what's new on the menu. Some dishes stand out more than others, but everything is always fresh, and inventive. That being said, the seafood dishes are usually my favorite. Server took care of us just fine. Great place for winter dining, as the low lit eclectic ambiance lends itself to a very warm, and inviting vibe.

Margaux's is my go-to restaurant... special occasion to casual outing with friends & it never disappoints. Fantastic food, attentive service, & great atmosphere. Have been going there for years & so many of the staff have been there since the 1st time I went for dinner...it's like a Cheers vibe every time I walk in the door🙂

The service staff at Margaux's is extremely attentive. Our waitress, Heather, was oustanding as were other waitstaff. The salmon and pork chop were fresh, hot and delicious. They accommodated a surprise birthday bouquet at the table. Great place for a special occasion! We will be back.

Took my wife here for her birthday. The atmosphere was friendly and the food was good. The cheesecake was probably the best I’ve had all year. We had a very positive experience.

Great dinner at Margauxs. They also do a great job. We are lucky to have such a great restaurant in North Raleigh that is not a chain and has creative menu options as well as their true and tried. Thanks

It had been more nearly two years since we returned to our old favorite, Margaux's, and bringing new frields who had never been there before provided the perfect reason to return. Everything my party had was delicious--and I can personally vouch for how outstanding the Pork Belly Lo Mein was--and the service was warm and attentive. We won't go as long between our visits to Margaux's!

Sat in an annex room that might as well been a generic chain family dining room. Part of the fun of Margaux’s is the eclectic ambience which is sorely missing from

My wife loved it. She thought everything was terrific. I was satisfied with the food, although I'd chose a different entree, and the service was more than satisfactory, very good actually. I did not, however, expect the din that accompanied the meal. It was difficult to chat without raising one's voice and that was a drawback. Arrived at the survey page asking for pictures of the food. Jesus! If I would've been surrounded by people taking photos of their food I might've insisted we leave. Encouraging that type of activity is, IMO, a giant mistake.

The restaurants strengths are in its customer service and atmosphere. The restaurant is gorgeous and the customer service is the best I have had in recent memory. However, the entries were lackluster for what we paid for. We did the three course meal. The steak entree was oversalted, and the other entree was mostly pasta and barley had any chicken. However, I have to say the appetizer and dessert blowed us away. If your priority is excellent customer service and a beautiful ambiance and you don't mind a hit or miss meal, this is a place worth checking out. But for the price, we can't say we would recommend this to a friend.

My husband and I sat outside by the bar area with a nice warm heater above us. The atmosphere was cozy and fairly quiet. Although they were very busy, the service was excellent. The only downfall was the occasional smoker who would come outside to smoke in our area (it would have been nice if a designated smoking area was farther down (by Jersey Mike's). My husband had the scallops and shrimp (he didn't care for all the bbq seasoning on the shrimp - less would have been better). I had the antelope with quail and it was amazing. My dish came with 3 different sauces/chutney, but for me, the meats were so good (not gamey tasting at all) on their own that I didn't feel the need to use the sauces/chutney. I would recommend their Syrah by the glass to pair with this dish.

This restaurant never disappoints, the cozy surroundings and charming service contributing to all the necessary elements for a wonderful dining experience. The three-course prix-fixe menu offers one of the best dining values in Raleigh, allowing an appetizer, entrée and dessert for an impressive price, and with a choice from five items per course, a decent selection to create an enjoyable meal to your personal preference.
Items on the menu change from time to time (so be sure to check the website the day on which you wish to dine): on the evening we dined, the Caesar Salad and Shrimp Cocktail were enjoyably chilled and perfect in size to start a three-course meal. The Spaghetti with Roasted Shrimp and Fusilli Pasta with Grilled Chicken our entrees, perfectly prepared and piping hot, with the sauce for each the stars of the show.
For those not wishing to avail themselves of the special prix-fixe menu, many other options abound, with Pamlico Sound Crab Cakes & Crispy Shrimp and Vietnamese Fresh Shrimp Spring Rolls excellent fresh and flavorful appetizers. The Grilled 14-Ounce Bone-In Pork Chop and Roast Peppercorn-Crusted Peking Half Duck both sizable and delicious, perfectly prepared entrée selections.
Without question, though, the French Onion Soup is culinary perfection in every way, the hint of thyme sending this masterpiece to new heights. Order this and be transported to Provence, and depart your evening delighted with the memory of this classic dish.
Comfort desserts of Brownie Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding, Key Lime Pie, and the table’s favorite Pumpkin Spice Pot de Crème rounded out a superlative meal.
A sizable and impressive wine list and a generous selection of house-made martini creations, with the Washington State Appletini, Detox Martini and Espressotini our evening’s choice of potent potables.
