Our server was lovely and the food was excellent. I have never had Mignonette on oysters before but it was INCREDIBLE! The price fixe menu was smaller portions but overall left feeling full and satisfied. Will be back to try more!

Excellent oysters and other apps. The food fresh and of great quality. Did a good job socially distancing and offers outdoor dining. Drink and wine options are good (could use some PNW wines added to the menu).

The service is always hit or miss here. My last two visit, got the same waiter (Bob) who is very friendly at the outset, but quickly forgets about you as new tables are added.

Overall experience is good. Would recommend but set expectations.

My wife Christy and I have been enjoying Margaux's eclectic magic over many years now - a favorite place to entertain our families and favorite out-of-town guests.

Steve and Andrew never disappoint and their dedication to the highest quality of food and service makes every dining experience here simply great.

Many thanks to the entire staff,

This visit we took a friend out as a thank you and as always had a fantastic time. Anne Marie (sp?) always takes great care of us and seems genuinely excited to see us even if we don't visit as often as we'd like to. Her enthusiasm over our wine selection was the icing on the cake. We will look forward to our next date night!

Dear friends from Florida were here for an overnight visit. It was their first time to dine in since the Pandemic began. We wanted them to experience a great meal in a manner that made them feel safe. We knew we could count on Margaux's, and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent! Rebecca took care of us with great knowledge regarding food and beverage choices and made sure we had everything we needed. Our friends were so impressed. They said, "That was the best time we have had in more than a year!"

Service was fine and my tip reflected that. I dined with a friend and both of us got substandard meals. I ordered a salad with salmon and when the waitress puit it down it smelled really fishy. Salmon can have a strong aroma, but it shouldn't smell fishy. I finished about a third of it before deciding that was enough. My friend got the duck cannelloni and got sick later that night. This is an espensive place to get a bad meal. I also ordered a wine which I frequently order and it tasted as if it had been opened a long time ago. I understand the restaurant business is hurting right now. But we had drinks and apps at another restaurant prior to our reservation and everything was great there. So we will move on to another restaurant and hope that Margeaux's can pull it together.

It is always a pleasure dining at your restaurant. Friday night there was a musician playing a sax. Our table was beside him. It was so loud at times we could not hear each other. This is why I can not give you 5 stars. Not sure if he was using an amp or what.

Tuna dish was lack luster- though the tuna was cooked to perfection! The combination of ingredients on this dish (including mushrooms and sweet potatoes) was odd at best- weird at worst.

Elderberritini was ok. Nothing I’m going to race back to.

On the other hand, my husband got a pan seared scallops/ shrimp and curry dish that was delicious.

If you use a wheel chair, I would avoid. No handicapped spots near restaurant. Almost resulted in a tragic ending after dinner.
