Our party of three were recommended by a friend to Margaux, and we celebrated my birthday-
My husband and I like traditional martinis but we’re informed that their bar does not stock ‘dry vermouth’ which is a standard ingredient in a classic martini. Very surprising, we ordered wine instead-
Although the presentation of our plated entrees were fine, I was disappointed to see a pound of angel hair pasta on my plate along with six shrimp! WOW, what a way to fill a plate-
We felt the prices were high for what you got in return.
Wait staff got our order mixed up with the neighboring table, it was a bit frantic-
A substitute was given on the price fix causing a mix up as well.
Overall, OK, but not for another visit-

A very interesting and varied menu with some entrees from the past.
I had the calves liver, something you never see on menus anymore. Absolutely delicious.
My spouse had the Peking style duck. Wonderful choice.
The entrees were huge.
We shared an appetizer of seafood and a salad. More than enough for sharing.
The service was wonderful. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the menu and food and made great suggestions about a wine with dinner.
All in all a great dining out experience.

Very good evening. The Halloween theme is in full force around the dining room. Some of the displays are unusual. Annmarie was a super host. The food was good. The prefix menu is an outstanding value. We eat at Margaux a few times a year and we are never disappointed.

This was not what I expected at all. The food and service was just okay. Certainly not in line with the prices being charged. The appetizers were okay. The entrees were another story, If the plates had not been hot the food would have been stone cold. One person’s medium rare steak order was medium well and everything else was cold. The fish dish was just okay and very under seasoned. The third person had the venison and thought it was good. We all agreed we would not be going back there. The server did not come back to check on us until after we were done eating. The steak order told her about the cold food and improperly cooked steak but she just walked off with the plates and said she’d let the kitchen know. Do not go to this restaurant expecting fine food and dining because of the prices. You will be wasting your money. This is really a bar restaurant (with tvs) with a boisterous atomosphere.

Everything about Margaux's is first rate. First is the ambiance. The establishment looks and feels like a cozy inn with smaller dining areas and motifs spread throughout. The decor is perfect for lingering over dinner. The next is the superb menu. There was not one item the both my wife and I didn't rave about the taste from appetizer to dessert. Finally, the service is professional with the right touch of friendliness. Just right to make you enjoy every unhurried minute.

As always, Margaux's never disappoints us! The food is superb, and we particularly love their filets, but all or their entrees are delicious. The staff is friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable about wines. We like being able to choose inside or outside seating, depending on the weather. We are fortunate that this is our "neighborhood" go to restaurant!

Margaux's has been my favorite restaurant in Raleigh for over a decade since moving to the area. The food is delicious and creative, and the service is always impeccable. Margaux's is too pricey for regular dining, but it's my go-to for special occasions.

This is an excellent in every way. However, the noise level is simply to much to bear. As we walked out side we thought maybe we should eat outside. We are not outside people but it may be better than the noise level. However it was a hot day and temperature was still above 90 .

Hostess forgot about us despite our reservation. We had to wait 45 min at the bar, then had to approach her again to ask when we were going to be seated.

Other services (bar, server, food) were wonderful!

My wife and I have been here several times previously and decided to go for our wedding anniversary. We love the setting and the food rarely disappoints. My wife had the pork chop and I had the salmon and both were delicious. The wait staff was attentive but not obnoxiously so, allowing us the time to ourselves (just what we wanted). It was a great start to our anniversary evening!!

We were at Margaux with friends. Everyone had something different and we were all pleased with our choices. My only complaint would be that the tables are too close together, and with the large crowds, it makes for a chaotic atmosphere.

Perfect Friday night to dine Alfresco. Our waitress was very attentive yet didn't pressure us to order. The 3 courses were spaced out well for the 4 of us and the food was as delicious as the last times we've been there. Always a delight to dine at Margaux's

Restaurant has a nice funky vibe. Unfortunately the food was downright awful. I sent my meal back which I never do. Pieces of it were cold as if right out of the fridge. And the fish was inedible and raw. I was so disgusted.

Without a doubt, this is one of my favorite restaurants. I just went for the third time, and I can’t get over how delicious every bite is each time. My husband and I went for our 19th anniversary this last time, and we were blown away with our surprise dessert. They pay attention to EVERY detail and make sure the dining experience is perfect. The food, drinks, staff, menu, atmosphere, everything - it’s all perfect. This place is a keeper.
