Delightful and welcoming staff. Happy to accommodate any special request. We ate before the Opéra and then returned to the bar for champagne and prociutto. Highly recommended.

We have eaten here about 5 times now and both the food and service are consistently excellent.
Waitress Barbara and Head Sommelier Sabrina absolutely made our night.

The San Giminiagno Vernachia Traditizionale is the best wine I have ever tasted, but is only beaten by the quality of the veal steak with risotto.

Chilled atmosphere and loads of smiling faces. An absolute joy and can not wait to go back.

I like Margot's very much. Service is always good, staff attentive sometimes bordering on over attentive - such as constantly filling glasses. Table arrangements are good, round tables over sqaure win every time for me.

You can rack up a bill but also eat well for a modest price if you wish.

Ambience is very good, fine selection of wine and food is great,

A favourite of mine

Margot had been recommended to us but we were really quite disappointed. The food was good enough, nothing special, but the service was impersonal and functional, doing nothing to enhance the experience. The atmosphere in the dining room was also impersonal and we were surprised how empty it was for a sunny Saturday lunch time when Covent Garden was busy. Overall we left feeling underwhelmed and begrudged the size of the bill as a result.
In summary, we had been looking forward to our visit and were really disappointed. We wouldn’t recommend Margot to our friends and family and we won’t be planning a return visit.

A very classy operation with top notch ingredients and an elegant clubby vibe.

The linguine with red prawns and artichokes were outstanding. Salumi were very good but served at a slightly too low temperature. We will be back!

Had a great post theatre meal, could not fault service or food. We had the set 3 course menu which was excellent, well presented and a real treat. This restaurant isn't cheap but you get what you pay for and I would highly recommend it for serious diners and for special occasions. Excellent.

Very good! The restaurant is on the higher price level, do not expect it being cheap. Lamb was extremely tasty! Service was good, however it looked like too much motion within the space, I would prefer a more intimate seating. I booked it for the birthday of my husband, and he enjoyed the visit very much! Thank you

We visited Margot's to celebrate a big birthday,and it was perfect. There were 6 of us and we had a round table. The flavours of the food were outstanding and pleased all the 'foodies' in the family. We were allowed to take in a homemade birthday cake which they brought to the table with candles, plus a 'birthday plate' of sweets. Apparently 'Health and Safety' regulations prevent us being allowed to eat the cake there, so they re-packed it for the birthday girl to take home. Staff pleasant and friendly, food delicious and all beautifully presented. We will be back!

Second time at Margot and very much enjoyed our evening. Excellent service and ambience - got the balance absolutely right. The food is delicious and it is expensive ( but in the wider context of location and quality worth it). The place to go for a treat and enjoy a special evening.
