Lovely decor but food wasn’t seasoned and the service was very slow. There are much better Italian options out there...

Delicious Italian food with fantastic and helpful staff that gave good wine-recommendations to the food. We loved the crab ravioli and the cheese and meats we had as a starter (not to forget the crisp bread that came with it)! Pre dinner drinks were also really good.

We had the set pre theatre menu which was very enjoyable but the portion size was not over generous and really required extra vegetables with the main course. However on the whole the meal was good value.

We loved Margot! An excellent addition to the West End dining scene. Italian food at its finest (outside of Italy). This will definitely be a regular visit and we can't wait to try the brunch another time.

Great food, and attentive service. A nice atmosphere, quiet enough to chat. Prices are high, especially for the drinks, but the pre-theatre menu makes it a more affordable option.

Excellent service from all members of staff, always topping up our water and checking everything was okay. The crab ravioli and tuna steak were divine! Perfectly accompanied by a choice of bread, of which we had focaccia, flawless! Perfect place to dine pre or post theatre.

We chose Margot’s as we were seeing a show that evening and it turned out to be a great choice. The food was delicious and varied, not your typical Italian fare and there was a great selection of drinks too. The venue itself is lovely and whilst the service was good, it was a little slow. We ended up only managing 2 courses in 2 hours (we had to leave to make our show on time) which was very disappointing; however the staff were very friendly and attentive otherwise.

Disappointing and expensive! they must have had an off night. Our experience did not match at all with prior food or service reviews. All the staff were lovely but clearly under pressure, there did not seem to be enough of them, service was slow and chaotic. Given the high cost the food was very disappointing and mostly tepid by the time it had arrived, one main course was sent back.. none of this was reflected in our final bill, the wine list is also very expensive… this was not in any way fine dining. Sadly we left feeling very disappointed and completely ripped off!

This was a party of four for a 50th birthday. The food was fantastic! Portion size was good for a higher end restuarnat and the food quality was excellent. They provided a nice touch at the end of the meal with some birthday cakes for the special guest! REally pleased with choosing this venue and would definitely return for another occasion in the future.

Despite the lovely name, Margot represents a kind of triumph of style (crisp linens, tuxedoed waiters, Covent Garden location ) over substance (merely adequate Italian food). At this price point there are a number of better alternatives around that deliver value on their bills, and do so without something of a stiff defensive attitude.

As noted in other reviews, Margot's seating is divided between an airy space above and a windowless basement below -- the latter isn't really acceptable, in my view: it would be worth clarifying this with the restaurant at the time of booking.

I have dined at Margots’s many times and never had a bad experience. It is wonderful to have a restaurant where you have table clothes and good old fashioned great service. Ambience is always good and the lack of hard surfaces (in so many “modern” eating places) means your conversation is not drowned out by reverberating noise. The use of round and semi circular tables just adds to the intimacy.

Value wise, you can certainly rack up a dinner bill if the desire takes you but if restrained, you can eat and drink well for a reasonable price.

I’ve been twice and loved it the first time around but left slightly disappointed the second. No continuity of service as we got different waiters, several of whom did not particularly care about us or our experience. Good risotto but way too much salt. Dessert was good but did not justify the 8.5 pounds I paid for it. My coffee came in so bitter I had to ask for another and even the second cup was undrinkable. I asked for a cup of tea but somehow that was over brewed and bitter too. So a mixed review but I might give it another go later.

The food was excellent and the wine choice very good. Nice warm ambiance although as we went post-theatre at 10.15pm the service was beginning to wind down which resulted in our being served by a range of different waiters and some commis. And I was somewhat surprised when they had seemingly not heard of Beaumes de Venise muscat dessert wine.
One little sour note: the Maitre d'Hotel (co-owner I believe) who greeted us warmly on arrival became rather" disdainful" after I asked to have the post-theatre menu and lost all interest in us after that ! A bit of a mistake I feel because we did have £100 worth of good wine between 2 of us to accompany our potentially 'cheaper' choice of food !
We had a delicious carpaccio d'agnello and the faraona (guinea fowl) was very good if perhaps lacking a bit of seasoning.... The olive oil for dipping your bread or focaccia in was out of this world ! The staff were also most effective at finding us a taxi when we left around 11.30pm.
I would definitely return, despite the Maitre d'Hotel's unfortunate attitude, for the excellent food and wine and I will recommend it to my friends in London (I live in France).

I have been to Margot a few times and absolutely loved it - the environment, the food and drink and the service. This was the first time I was seated downstairs and the experience was unfortunately not as impressive. I perhaps should have checked where I was to be seated but I would suggest that the restaurant should contact diners and ensure that they had not objection to not being seated in the main dining room. The environment is not as conducive and I found the service was also not as reliable. The experience won't prevent me going back and/or recommending but I will certainly check where I am to be seated....
