    Everything was delicious; service was attentive but not overbearing; the bartender was extra generous with the rum in our cocktails; we ordered just the right amount of food to enjoy ourselves without getting overstuffed. Great way to spend our last pre-quarantine evening out; let's hope Margaux is still there when restaurants reopen.

    I guess we were expecting a better experience knowing the location and close it is to Jazz Alley. The hostess was wonderful the wait staff kind of underwhelming, had to wait a while to get a drink. The menu was limited I guess because of Valentines day so that was a bit of a bummer. It wasn't that busy in the restaurant so not sure why the limited menu. pricing was what you would expect but really we were kind of bummed with it. Kind of thought we should have just had dinner at Jazz alley.

    We went here for their valentine dinner special. Most other restaurants were fully booked. The waitress asked how our food was before we even ate and did not refill our water at all. The food was average. Crab cake and chowder was very flavorful. My seafood with risotto had shells or sand that made some of my bites very unpleasant and difficult. My partner’s steak and broccoli were also average, broccoli did not have any seasoning, just boiled. We took our dessert to go, but the packaging was messy. For a $160 3 course meal for two, it was not worth it.

    The bartender was nice; busy and still managed to be attentive. She went above and beyond to accommodate our party. Our server was rushing, no idea why. Although the bar area was full, there was literally no one else in the restaurant area. He was anxious and didn’t create a relaxing vibe. The place is very nice, food delicious and drinks good. We have fish tacos, coconut shrimp and ahi tuna. All tasty and priced ok considering this is downtown Seattle. Good HH from 4-7. Parking is validated. Give it a shot!

    We booked this reservation coming from the Tri Cities. After I booked I specifically called to make sure we could order off the menu and was told yes. It was buffet. Our reservation was for 6.45 and the service staff were more interested in setting up for the breakfast service than looking after our table of 9. We had to ask for plates to be cleared. We would not book at this resturant again.

    Just had Thanksgiving dinner for three at the Margaux. Service was smooth, friendly, and attentive. Excellent selection of quality dishes. Very much appreciate them working on Thanksgiving so that I don’t have to. Will very likely be back, and will definitely recommend to others.

    We went for Thanksgiving buffet, which was great for our multi-generational family. Lots of options (turkey, beef, ham) and the usual sides (savory and sweet potatoes, stuffing, and two green vegetables). Simple dessert bar, which was sufficient. A few salads too. Overall a good option for us.

    Despite booking, and the restaurant being very quiet, we were pointedly ignored in favour of other diners, hence after quarter of an hour we left - no apology. Don’t know the reason. Excellent service and food at the Dahlia across the road.

    My spouse and I enjoyed a quiet evening dining in Margaux. Our only concern is the annoying marquis sign across the street, "CINERAMA". It makes no sense at all to have that sign facing the hotel when it should be facing up and down the street instead. This same sign also comes into play in our room, 311. Probably not much you can do except to ask the owners to re-align it.

    My salad was limp and soggy. Fish and chips were mediocre. Décor felt old and tired. My partner thought his food was meh (Caesar salad, salmon entrée). Apple tart was not good, but the ice cream on the side was very good. On the upside, this was a quiet restaurant, which gets harder and harder to find these days.

    Made online reservations for breakfast to find out that they were closed for a special event. They were very nice though and sat us in the lobby area so we can still have breakfast. Service was OK only because we were separated. The waiter tried to check on us as much as she could. The food totally made up for the experience. It was a great breakfast. Everything was cooked perfectly.

    My kids and I were served rancid French toast. I ended up puking all day and had to cut our trip short and come home early. They took the charges off our check so that was good but it doesn’t make up for how sick I got. We made it back to Portland and I wasn’t able to get out of bed except to go to the bathroom for 2 days. Do not recommend.

    There were a few red flags from the get go...there was no one in the restaurant when we checked in. Then when I ordered my classic cocktail they didn’t know what it was so I quickly changed it to a gin and tonic. When our drinks were delivered the poor waiter accidentally knocked over my water glass all over me. Fortunately the well worn polyester napkin on my lap rescued my clothes and only my shoes were a bit damp. He profusely apologized and brought a towel to help clean up and then comped us dessert. Too bad the dessert was undercooked as a Granny Smith Apple crumble. So what was good? The bread and butter were amazing. My gin and tonic was decent. The salmon was nicely cooked. The waiter was very sweet. But it was not enough for a return visit.

    Before discussing the food, let's just consider the 4% service charge that is NOT shared with staff. JUST INCREASE THE LISTED PRICES BY 4% INSTEAD OF BEING SO SHADY! I knew it was coming, but it is such an insult to not share a service charge with the service staff. That alone is enough reason to never return. Though, we were given plenty of reason to stay away. The corned beef "hash" was awful. Chunks of beef that were too acidic paired with a tangy hollandaise stung mouths cut up from stale bread toasted to the point of being painful to eat. The potatoes in the "hash" were undercooked. And both the meat and potatoes were cut too large to get a mix of both in a single bite. For the crab benedict, the crab was completely overpowered by the hollandaise. I ordered an orange juice and never received it.

    We had been to Margaux before but it had been a while. We started with French Onion soup and a wedge salad which were both excellent. My wife had the ribeye and I had the seafood paella. My wife's steak was cooked just how she likes it and my paella was delicious. The snap peas on both of our plates were fresh and delicious. Our server was knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. The lone blotch on the night was this out of date/stock wine list when we settled on the 4th wine we ordered.

    We had lunch here on a rainy day right after Thanksgiving. We got there at 12:15pm. There were no people eating in there. We were the only people the whole time we were there. We had perfect service. My husband had mussels and I had the kabobs. Everything was delicious. I don't know why no one was there because its very good food moderately priced for the city. It is part of the Warwick Hotel, maybe that is why?
