We had a lovely evening. The food was really fantastic on the whole. My one criticism of the food is that the quality of the fresh pasta was not up to the delicious standards of their sauces. The sheets of pasta were, not to mince words, rather thick and a bit stodgy. Appetizers and dessert were excellent though!

The lobster tagliotini was absolutely delicious! The restaurant itself is very nice indeed - 2 of us had starters but the third person opted to just have a main. She ordered the ravioli and when it arrived it was dramatically smaller than my lobster dish and the cockle linguine. We questioned it because it was that small and we were told very seriously by the waitress that it was exactly 100grams and that was that! Would she like some rocket as a side! Not really the answer we were expecting or hoping for - shame as it tainted the experience and I'd otherwise have recommended the restaurant in a heartbeat.

Not great. I’ve been a few times and I’ve always liked it so maybe today wasn’t a good day. It’s expensive so it should be a lot better.

Expected much more. Website and real life experience not match. One waiter (blonde hair young man) wreaked of cigarette smoke. Eek. Overall below expectations. Lobster Pasta not al dente and too much sauce. Vingole pasta dry. Dessert lovely. Starters great. A lot of money for what I got.

Wonderful restaurant. We've been twice now and it rates as one of our favourites in London, especially for when you want to go somewhere a bit special. The service is friendly, polite and attentive. Everything we had was perfect with particular mention for their gluten free pasta which they used as a replacement for me for the day's special pasta dish, a very savoury and delicious combination of pecorino, truffle and bottarga. I've endured quite a few not very good gf pastas in various places, but this was such a good version, that it was almost indistinguishable from the real thing. We also had a tuna and fennel dish which was excellent. Shared a very nice, simple rocket and parmesan salad to start, although it was enormous and that was with two of us sharing it. Lovely atmosphere right from the start of the evening, 'lively' noise levels. The wine list was good and the sommelier very helpful and they know how to make a good Manhattan.

This restaurant was upmarket and our seats were well placed for a table for four . The food was of good quality and what we would have expected . However the service was less than professional and very perfunctory. Our waitress never asked us if we wanted a drink to start and when we asked for four gin and tonics she immediately removed the wine list and glasses without even enquiring if we wanted wine . We had to get it all back . Don’t they have a sommelier. She never asked if my guests required sides with their mains and all in all was not very user friendly or professional. We paid the £44 service charge but won’t be back .

Based on food and service alone this is a superb place to dine. However, it now appears to have become a little too well known. It's very difficult to hold a conversation and the free standing tables and chairs are far too close together. A waitress had to move the table in order for my partner to stand up! Have dined here before without these issues. There are other restaurants with the same positive attributes but not the downside. We shall not be returning.

Lovely Lovely, elegant interia (upstairs - downstairs has no windows so while light not as welcoming as upstairs). Seating/tables really well organised, plenty of corner seats which is great for couples.
We had the fixed price lunch and shared our dishes, for dessert we could not pass up on the zabaglione (a rarity to see this on a menu these days!) all our courses were delicious. Staff were excellent just the right balance between attentive but not intrusive. Great choice of wines with plenty being available by the glass and carafe. Highly recommended although I’d advise asking to be seated upstairs.

We had been to Margot last year, and had the most amazing meal and service, so we decided to bring a group of friends back this time. Unfortunately we all left very underwhelmed. The service seemed frantic and confused this time, we had to track down staff on numerous occasions to refill drinks or remove plates. The waitress did not time our meal correctly, so we hadn't even properly finished our starters, and our pasta course came out - which had obviously already been sitting under the heat lamp for quite some time, and arrived barely warm and stodgy. Not what you want from a high-end Italian restaurant, or any restaurant for that matter. At the end, we again had to call out for a server to get our bill. And after our experience, paying £800 felt pretty insulting. Its a shame because I had such high hopes for our meal after our first experience at Margot. Hope they can turn it back around, because its a gorgeous little restaurant.

The truth is that the ambience in the upstairs ground floor restaurant is much nicer than the downstairs basement restaurant

WOW! Just wow! I came across this restaurant just by chance and thank god I did! From the welcoming staff to the table service the whole dinner and experience was excellent! All staff had their skills honed which made our dinner run like clockwork! The fingerprints being wiped off the glass doors and the floors being hovered to keep the restaurant spotless went undetected, everything was covered and did not interrupt our meal one bit!
The food was outstanding! The chefs and kitchen staff have to be applauded for their talents! Finest Italian food we have eaten in a very long time and we have just come back from Italy!
My fiancé and I could not fault anything and will 100% be returning!
Thank you to the staff at Margot for a wonderful evening.
