    Lovely quiet Monday night dinner at Margaux. The place has a NYC vibe to the decor and the food was light and tasty. Felt satisfied with the value paid at the end. Service was a bit stand-offish rather than pro-active, and had to hail the waiter over to get served and top up drinks. Overall, however, this did not take too much away from the experience and my dinner guest and I agreed we would be back - great neighbourhood find.

    Impersonal service - unwelcome and pretty unfriendly when we arrived. Food was above average / starter v nice- pasta not that tasty. Duck was v good. The actual restaurant was gorgeous. Had the service been friendlier I would have given 4/5

    An excellent meal but charging £4.5 for tap water is crazy. It’s a great restaurant with great food but as the joke goes” can great food save bad service ( and yet the service was excellent too) I cannot get around that cost

    The staff we're very accommodating from booking the dinner for 7 people to when we arrived and allocating us our seat. It was such a lovely environment for dinner and the waitress was extremely friendly and warm. The bartender served us some delicious drinks. We got there just after 6pm and it didn't get louder as more people came so I would recommend a late lunch for the serene calm lunch to dinner feel. Definitely value for money. I think the only thing that may have tainted the experience marginally was the waiter. When it came to paying, he said he didn't have time to calculate or split the bill and we didn't ask him to do this. We were going to work things out for ourselves. It just presented a bit of awkwardness to a otherwise delightful experience. We weren't rushed to leave either. The food is affordable, though was a little warm rather than piping hot when served, but we were talking so much and laughing it was a minor thing. I may try the place again, if only for the ambience, food, waitress and bartender. My friends and I agreed it was a lovely evening x

    Margaux is the most underrated restaurant in London. The best culinary experience by far in ALL London, and I’ve been to many of the so called mainstream best restaurants in London. I don’t know the Chef, but everything he promisses on the menu he delivers on the plate! BRAVO!! And keep up the good job! A true hiden gem!

    Delicious neighbourhood gem that never fails to impress. The Beef Bourignon is definitely the best dish of all time. Their wine selection is vast and they are super professional with their wine recommendations. Their cocktails are delicious as well if wine is not really your cup of tea.

    We have been to Margaux several times simply because their food used to be outstanding quality and although a bit pricey, the quality was worth it. Yesterday however the quality of the food was not there. Ingredients were not fresh and it felt doshes had been in fridge for a couple days and then heated. We ordered wine, the first glass was nice, the second I could tell was not the same wine I could not finish it. The waiter forgot to bring our port wine and had to be reminded of things frequently. He also had a strong smell (sweat). We provided feedback on the quality of the food to the manager who took on the feedback and removed the starters from our bill. Overall we payed £80 per person for food and service which were not worth this price at all. Not sure after this experience we will be back, there are plenty of restaurants in the area and in London in general with great quality food at similar or lower prices. Its a shame as in previous times the food had been fresh and delliciois.

    We booked as our previous dining experience was good. Unfortunately, this time, overall food quality for all the dishes we ordered was poor. Not cooked well, no flavor… we were very disappointed and we decided not to go back there again any more. Shame, it is such a lovely place but this was inexcusable.
