The dinner special which included 3 courses was an excellent value!
Made online reservations for breakfast to find out that they were closed for a special event. They were very nice though and sat us in the lobby area so we can still have breakfast. Service was OK only because we were separated. The waiter tried to check on us as much as she could. The food totally made up for the experience. It was a great breakfast. Everything was cooked perfectly.
Thank you for being flexible on timing for our large party and for treating our out of town guests with class and style. Margaux is one of the hidden gems in Seattle.
Slow service, despite half full. Had to send cold food back.
My kids and I were served rancid French toast. I ended up puking all day and had to cut our trip short and come home early. They took the charges off our check so that was good but it doesn’t make up for how sick I got. We made it back to Portland and I wasn’t able to get out of bed except to go to the bathroom for 2 days. Do not recommend.
There were a few red flags from the get go...there was no one in the restaurant when we checked in. Then when I ordered my classic cocktail they didn’t know what it was so I quickly changed it to a gin and tonic. When our drinks were delivered the poor waiter accidentally knocked over my water glass all over me. Fortunately the well worn polyester napkin on my lap rescued my clothes and only my shoes were a bit damp. He profusely apologized and brought a towel to help clean up and then comped us dessert. Too bad the dessert was undercooked as a Granny Smith Apple crumble.
So what was good? The bread and butter were amazing. My gin and tonic was decent. The salmon was nicely cooked. The waiter was very sweet. But it was not enough for a return visit.
Delicious food and fast attentive service complemented a relaxing, casual ambiance.
My granddaughter would appreciate more vegetarian options.
We'll be back.
They are not open for lunch
Before discussing the food, let's just consider the 4% service charge that is NOT shared with staff. JUST INCREASE THE LISTED PRICES BY 4% INSTEAD OF BEING SO SHADY! I knew it was coming, but it is such an insult to not share a service charge with the service staff. That alone is enough reason to never return. Though, we were given plenty of reason to stay away. The corned beef "hash" was awful. Chunks of beef that were too acidic paired with a tangy hollandaise stung mouths cut up from stale bread toasted to the point of being painful to eat. The potatoes in the "hash" were undercooked. And both the meat and potatoes were cut too large to get a mix of both in a single bite. For the crab benedict, the crab was completely overpowered by the hollandaise. I ordered an orange juice and never received it.
I took a party of 8 here for a business dinner. Food, drinks, dessert were all very good. Our waiter appeared to be THE waiter for the bar and restaurant, so there was a bit of waiting around. Other than that, excellent.
Such an under-valued gem right in the middle of the city! The menu has a good variety of food & the service is superb!
This was our first visit which was a great experience. We will certainly be back when we visit Seattle again 😊
Great food and service. But unexpected and unheard of service charge not ok.
We had been to Margaux before but it had been a while. We started with French Onion soup and a wedge salad which were both excellent. My wife had the ribeye and I had the seafood paella. My wife's steak was cooked just how she likes it and my paella was delicious. The snap peas on both of our plates were fresh and delicious. Our server was knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. The lone blotch on the night was this out of date/stock wine list when we settled on the 4th wine we ordered.
Really enjoyed this place with my husband for our anniversary. So we invited our daughter and her boyfriend to join us our second time dining here before we went to the theater.
Love the food and the ambiance.
We highly recommend this place.
We had lunch here on a rainy day right after Thanksgiving. We got there at 12:15pm. There were no people eating in there. We were the only people the whole time we were there. We had perfect service.
My husband had mussels and I had the kabobs. Everything was delicious. I don't know why no one was there because its very good food moderately priced for the city. It is part of the Warwick Hotel, maybe that is why?
The hostess/waitress did not acknowledge our reservation (we were celebrating a birthday and left instructions at the time of reservation) and never addressed the celebrant or did anything special for him.
She was pregnant so I excused the slow service but I will not excuse her being rude and indifferent.
We went for a birthday celebration and had a great meal and a wonderful time. We highly recommend Margaux!
This was our first visit to Margaux. We have been in Seattle all of our lives. We went for Seattle Restaurant Week. An appetizer we chose on the SRW menu was not available. Food was mediocre.
The Manager and wait person were excellent and understood our frustration with the appetizer not available and comped us dessert.
Sorry, the food was not good.
Our server not only took care of us very professionally but she was very personable and easy going. We could not have had any better greeting, several "how are you doing' and helping us find a wonderful dinner.
We went to Margaux for Restaurant Week and enjoyed the 3-course meal very much. The portion size was very generous and the presentation and quality of the food was excellent. I liked the quiet ambience since we wanted to catch up and it's nice to be able to speak and not yell at each other. We will definitely be back to go to this restaurant again!
The food and service was nice! But my boyfriend and I were the only 2 people in the restaurant, and we spent some time there...honestly that kind of killed the vibe for me. We were trying to have a romantic night but the choice of music they were playing was terrible! It’s a shame because the waitress was friendly and attentive and the food was quite good.
Margaux is a great option for downtown brunch. The restaurant was easy to find, and the parking validation was very convenient.
Mediocre at best. Service was slow bc one person serving most of the place.
Service was a little slow but otherwise it was good. Food was great and ambiance was nice.
Our go-to spot for lunch. Always an interesting and invariably excellent specials menu, and the regular menu has something for everyone.
Food was good but our waitress was awful! She came over to get our drink order and asked 3 people and then left. When she came back we told her we wanted drinks too. Her response “oh you seemed hesitant so” are you kidding me!? She had a rude attitude the rest of the night!
Food was AMAZING, staff was okay. Our waitress was attentive, which was very nice. But even with a reservation there was no one at the entrance when we arrived, so we didn't know if we seated ourselves or... So we sat down and the bartender yelled at us from across the dining area asking if we were told to sit there, we say no and she says to go back to the door and wait... so we do... Our server comes out and apologized saying we can sit wherever we would like since they weren't busy.
Food was AMAZING though, totally worth the $$
The food was not great and the price was on the high end. I felt like there are so many other good restaurants in this area that they should step up their game. Especially since we paid $80 for the two of us and we did not even order drinks. You can get better food and service at a decent price at any of the other places around. Don't waste your money.
Went for brunch. I recommend this restaurant highly. Best hollandaise I have ever had. Service was attentive.
We met here for Saturday brunch with family and we enjoyed the food and service. My husband and Mom really liked their bloody Mary cocktails.
Very nice. Good food and service. We enjoyed ourselves.
Was a bit leery by how empty the place was but lucky us, it turned out to be a god send! Great cocktails with good food and the ability to have great conversation without trying to talk louder than the next table.
It was nice to see Lamb Bolognese on the menu and it did not disappoint. Wild Salmon with Polenta was fair but really enjoyed the polenta!
Service was excellent!
Would keep it on my travel restaurant list next time I’m town!
A group of friends who grew up together in NY and all moved to Seattle 30 to 40 years ago have lunch here once a month. The staff is friendly, the food is good and no one cares if we occasionally laugh out loud like the teenagers we once were.
This food was tasteless and overpriced. The pork chops were tasteless, rib eye was awful and so was the salmon.
Pretty good, but pricey
Fantastic little hotel restaurant and bar. I make it a point to stop in here for a few drinks before going across the street to see a movie at the Cineramma. It’s practically a tradition.
When I walked in I was worried I made a bad choice; the furniture, dishes, and ambiance looked dated, and I was worried the food would be too. However, the food was great, and the service was even better. The clam chowder was delicious and the steak frites was amazing. I'd probably go back if I'm in that area just for the friendly staff alone. Great NYE experience. Thank you!
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Margaux. We had a party of 8 and it was New Year’s Eve but the server did a great job of keeping on top of our needs. The food was excellent.
