Really enjoyed our pre theatre dining. Food came quickly and was delicious, large meat and cheese platter was one of the best we’ve had! Ragu for mains was really tasty and pasta cooked perfectly. Chainti Classico wine was top quality. Service was fantastic.

We had lunch at Margots and we were very impressed. It is in a fantastic location just outside Covent Garden. The service and food were both very good and we enjoyed the atmosphere. I would have no hesitation in recommending Margots.

Wonderful authentic Italian cuisine presented in a modern, refined way, with impeccable service (friendly but not at all intrusive, knowledgeable and helpful but not patronising or intimidating) in lovely surroundings - relaxed, but upmarket/smart. Would highly recommend and will be returning!

Excellent - from start to finish. Food, service, atmosphere, all were really fine. I arrived on crutches and they found us a table in the main dining room with the most minimum wait. The beef tartare with quail eggs was very good, but my main course, a firm white fish (whose name I forget) wrapped In bacon was delicious. The staff was attentive, but not intrusive.

I think Margot is outstanding in a really understated way. The room is elegant but in a way that’s stylish & comfortable not stuffy or formal. The service is fantastic (they turned around our 2 courses in 45 mins due to a hurry to get to the theatre). Food and drinks have been delicious & flawless on each of the 3 occasions I have visited and I look forward to mu next excuse to visit!

This is a charming Italian restaurant with very patient staff!
However, it is almost impossible to read the menu which is in tiny print in spite of having large pages, and the descriptions of the dishes are in pale grey. At the very end when we were choosing desserts, we were offered proper light. This needs to be automatic at the outset. Better still, use bigger print and darker.

I enjoyed the lunch, but the service could have been more on point. My glass was empty a few too many times, to which I had to signalled to the waiter to fill my glass. My main course plates remained on my table to long. Once cleared I was offered the dessert menu, which should of just come automatically to the table without even been offered. I imagine the style of service the restaurant is aiming for, is more seamless for the guests not think about anything. I will be back.

Disappointed and underwhelmed. I had to season my soup, and the vegetables. The kale was not sauted in garlic and chilli. The monk fish was tastey but not as good as I expected. I don't expect to have to season the food in a good quality restaurant. The service was a inconsistent with one waiters forgetting that I had asked for more bread and another forgot that I had ordered coffee and once it had arrived we had a further wait for milk. The toilets were dirty.

Food was not good. Pasta was mushy, shrimp pasta tasted like old fish. It was so over priced for such a low quality meal. The servers never asked if we liked our food either. Pass on this spot.

Been to this restaurant several times and loved it but feel now it is so popular (OK it was a few days after Christmas) that it has become overpriced for very average food.
We brought two Italian food lovers who were clearly underwhelmed. Sadly can’t recommend again.
The staff are still lovely and very professional.
Ps the very hot chilli paste on the delicate scallops do not work!!

What started so well, with excellent and attentive service, went downhill quickly. The service quickly became poor, forgetful and neglectful - our main courses were very slow to arrive and then it took nearly half and hour to be offered a dessert menu. Such a shame because the food was very good and not overly expensive. Sadly though we won’t be recommending to friends. Also, the downstairs dining area was absolutely boiling - you could see that everyone seated down there was uncomfortably hot.

A random choice for a post work supper in between Xmas & New Year. Easy access from Holborn tube. Greeted well at reception. The sommelier was excellent & helpful. The food was very good though a little light. My two scallops followed by blackened cod were both beautifully cooked. Slightly marked down only because my colleague’s food arrived not piping hot. Also marked down as our table waiter was a bit sloppy with the water and I’m very fussy. Our starter plates had not been removed when the main arrived - might have contributed to the food cooling. Otherwise we had a super evening with fine wine and fine food. Recommend.

Very disappointing. Loved the light and airy interiors but that's where the good stuff ended. Our waitress was efficient but lacked warmth and at no stage checked in with us to see if food was ok. And it wasn't. Crab salad starter was bland, tiny, and contained pieces of crab shell. Clam linguine main was so salty that I left most of it. She seemed surprised when I told her and did refer this back to the kitchen who agreed and deducted from our bill. My husband faired better but his risotto while tasty was not very hot having been spread out thinly on a plate. Desserts were ok. We won't be returning.

Great location. Service was excellent (2nd course a little slow coming but we were not in a hurry).
Good wine list.
Food was top class, mixed meats and cheese to share, crab and buratta. Osso, Rib eye, sides etc. for main.
Comfortable restaurant layout and ambiance.

Disappointingly unimpressed. Service was hit and miss, crab salad had shell included. Main of clam linguine wasn’t memorable and could hardly taste or smell the truffle in the risotto. For the prices being charged, I was expecting an evening of delightful food and service but it failed to deliver.
