    Our night at Margot was excellent. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Staff dealt very sensitively with a situation that rose with another customer. We were very impressed. The food was excellent. We had the steak sharing platter which included a glass of wine . Would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Overall pretty good but a few gripes were the duck buns bun was definitely microwaved, possibly from frozen, as they were very hot but the edges were as hard as a brick. The steak was not good at all and there was a bone in the chicken that I almost broke a tooth on. All of the other dishes were fantastic though. Not going to hold it against them too much. Service was good and atmosphere / location very nice too.

    I booked a table for drinks but when we arrived, no one greeted us or made us aware of the booked table process. We asked and we’re shown to a booth that was quite dirty. Service was slow and the general noise was excessive. It’s been described as a speakeasy but it is not, it’s a basement bar. Drinks were nice but due to everything else I wouldn’t return.

    We were running late, hard to find parking but staff was nice to accommodate. Had our 8 y/o didn’t realize no kids, My mistake didn’t read according to staff it’s online. Maybe missed it. Food is okay, not upto par for the more than 4 stars rating. Tapas- shrimp is over cooked, calamari had no batter flavor , patatas bravas not much flavor, fried chicken is good , flat iron steak marinade was sour to taste but meat was tender. Cocktail is good. Overall food is alright. If you have less than 4 star expectation this bar / restaurant is okay for food and drinks

    Service was good, professional and friendly. The food was good quality and well prepared. The cocktails were quite unimpressive for a cocktail bar, more like something that had been poured out of a bottle and shaken. For £10 I hoped for something a little fresher. Even the glasses, a plain tumbler was quite ordinary.

    Nice ambience, very friendly staff. Cocktails were very good. We shared a few of the small plates, which frankly all looked weirdly similar and all had a similar batter .... however, they were tasty and the fries were nice. Music was loud but not overwhelming and we had a super cosy table, so all in all a very pleasant night. Would go back.

    Loved the food and service. Second time here and staff are always very chatty and friendly. Monk fish was amazing, I choose all fish tapas and it all tasted so good. The music was abit louder than I would have liked but it was a Saturday night.
