The angel hair pasta with shrimp was probably the best pasta plate I've had in a while. Generous portion sizes at a reasonable price.
Our server was attentive and fun! Definitely recommend for a date night, or to impress out of town family.

We hadn’t been to Margaux’s in several years but our visit for our 44 wedding anniversary reminded us why we need to visit more often.

We love this place. It is our go-to date night outing. Menu changes from time to time and that is a good thing. The staff works together in a seamless fashion. As an example, a manager walks by makes the usual small talk, buses the table and boxes the leftovers. They know their menus, what is available at the bar and are able to suggest a substitute. Out of Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare suggested. They are from the same distillery.

The food was amazing and the bohemian decor was really cool. Great service. A little noisy, but still fun for a large dinner party.

Wonderful meal. Great presentation. Meal was paced just right. I did like the atmosphere and my entire meal was enjoyable.

I only give 5 stars possibly 1x a year. And that is what I believe my experience deserved. A little more knowledge about the food served would be my only recommendation. I can discuss details if requested.

The restaurant week menu was just their regular fixed price restricted menu. This was very misleading and they should not have been included in Triangle Restaurant Week.
Food was good but not near many of the other Triangle Restaurant Week options.

This restaurant has stood the test of time. The menu may change, and some of the staff change, but the quality is always top notch. It has a great bar for drinks or dinner. Then the staff is geared to ensuring an excellent meal. The menu is creative, delicious and served with enthusiasm. Owner presence is evident in the overall excellence.

We celebrated my daughters birthday here and it was awesome as usual. Service was fantastic as was our meal. There was 7 of us and we weren’t rushed at all. Some of us ordered the early bird special and others ordered from the menu.

A very nice touch was a candle on my daughters cake. I ordered the crab cakes for appetizer and they were not stuffed with fillers. My salmon was cooked perfectly and came with zucchini and mashed potatoes.

Just know that if you order the early bird, there are no substation of sides. It does include several dessert choices. The creme brûlée is the best I’ve had!

Four of us went on a Monday nite to take advantage of their price fixe 3 course dinner for $24.95. We all enjoyed our meal. I had the crab cake appetizer and pork chop for entree and both delicious. Friends had fried shrimp, cream of mushroom soup, scallops and everyone enjoyed their meal. Dessert was great too-key lime pie and sweet potato bread pudding. Portions were ample and our waitress was friendly and attentive. We will be back to try more of the menu items.
