Margaux’s is a great restaurant and one I always search out when I am in the area. I think it’s been around for 30 years or more, and though Raleigh has a bevy of A+ restaurants, it would be hard not to pick Margaux’s as...one of the best. The menu is totally unique with really interesting avant-garde selections in addition to wonderful steak and seafood options. The service is attentive and impressive as are the bartenders. Eating at the bar can be fun since most of the people that go to Margaux’s are nice people. I think they had a jerk in there a few years ago, but the nice people made him go away. He just didn’t fit in. Try the Chicken Cordon Bleu or the Grilled Swordfish. And the Oysters, and the Charcuterie, and…. Well, pretty much anything you get will be good. Enjoy!More

A group of us had a business dinner here. The service and drinks at the bar was very good. For the food, the portions are very large. I could only eat half of my salad and steak. Good service overall

Decided at last minute to stop over and try to get a couple of seats in bar area. We were greeted warmly and told one other couple was waiting in front of us and we should be able to get a table or seats shortly...and we did! Sat at bar and had excellent server / bartender. I had the cocktail of the day which was perfect and my spouse had a glass of wine. The menu has so man6 interesting choices, especially in the small plate, appetizers, and salads. We opted for 3 starters and a main. Crab cake with fried shrimp and artichoke purée, pork belly with pickled slaw, and Vietnamese spring rolls, were great. We finished with the magi main, which they brought out on 2 plates for us to split. Everything was delicious and served timely and with a smile.More

Margaux’s had everything I wanted out of a restaurant for a romantic evening with my partner. She tends to be a picky eater so I need more than just atmosphere and this delivered. Beautiful entrance. Greta seating options: outside, bar and two different dining room...areas. The service was incredibly fast, especially considering this was a holiday weekend. Even faster than a lot of fats food places I’ve been. The food presentation was excellent and the tree was delicious. Best mahi-mahi I have had in a restaurant. Definitely going back.More

They have had the same salmon prefix for years. It has always come with a healthy portion of mashed potatoes and vegetables, now..The portion was a sliver of salmon, they added to the price making it over $30.00. It came with 2- 3 small fingerling...potatoes and a few pickled cucumbers. It was over $30.00! A couple of months ago my family went there and never received their drink order, they were snubbed and had to constantly ask where their meal was. This has always been a local favorite. Last night I was embarrassed that I had asked to go there after the service and food was so terrible.More

The food and service were top quality. Chef features such items as baby liver magnificently prepared with bacon and a beautiful display of fresh vegetables. Seafood offerings were prepared with excellence. Endless selection of appetizers and desserts. Early hour specials before 6:30PM offer great food...at an excellent price. Usually very crowded and on the noisy side but would highly recommend! Service was top notch.More

Celebrated our anniversary… excellent food, service, highly recommend!! Bill was absolutely amazing server from his recommendations to his service. Hubby said it was the best salmon he’s ever had. I had to fend him off my filet… better than any of the “high” end restaurants...in downtown. Worth the drive. Book a reservation now!More

Eccentric decor and attentive service did not redeem this extremely overpriced restaurant. Maybe this is a product of the pandemic, but the food did not live up to the vibrant menu descriptions. We will not be returning anytime soon.

Booked for my Birthday dinner with a friend. Though the menu was impressive in its descriptions and choices, the dishes were very badly prepared. Steak was of poor quality and badly cooked. Appetizers were tasteless. And scallops and shrimp were not fresh. Overall, an unpleasant...experience. Will not return to this restaurant.More

We ordered French onion soup and crab cakes. The soup was vey salty. The crab cakes were very fishy. We ordered angel hair pasta with shrimp for $28 and it was like spaghetti but worse. We couldn’t finish it. Th shrimp was dry and over...cooked. The bread served was cold and torn from a loaf of bread. We won’t be back. The male host that sat us had no personality. The other staff was excellent, including our waiter.More

My husband and I have not been out to eat in a restaurant in more than a year, due to the pandemic. Now that we are both fully vaccinated, we felt it was safe to go out to dinner in outdoor setting. Since Margaux's has...been a celebration place for us for a long time, we decided that's where we'd go. We enjoyed a lovely dinner on the patio and were very very comfortable with the situation. Tables were well-spaced, all staff wore masks, and there was a nice low-key saxophonist playing non-amplified music. Very nice!More

The breadth of dishes on the menu encompasses wild game, Indian cuisine, traditional American, etc. It's not likely you can't find something you like. Their daily menu rotates several menu items, so you're not likely to get "menu fatigue." We ordered ala carte, but they...also have a prix fixe menu - which looks like a good values.More

We celebrated our 41 Anniversary at Marguax’s and had a fantastic dinner. We felt uneasy to go out to dinner during COVID-19, but Marguax’s had done a fantastic job. It was extremely comfortable on the outside patio and they followed all of the requirements. It...was spaced out very well, the staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. The inside of the restaurant was also spaced out well. If you are looking for a nice night out and feel some normalcy, I definitely recommend this place. We were not rushed and our dinner was delicious! I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant and will definitely come back again, Marguax’s, thank you for making our special day special and enjoyable, please stay safe!FYI, our server was Brad and he was extremely nice.More

The food and service would merit 4-5 stars, and I appreciated that the servers were wearing their masks; however, I felt very unsafe because the owner was not wearing a mask and was going from table to table refilling water glasses. So whatever droplets which...might be coming from his nose and mouth were landing in our food and drink. I get it that masks are uncomfortable, but we wear them out of respect for others’ safety.More

Our 37th anniversary came during the COVID Quarantine when restaurants were only open for delivery. We chose Margaux's because we had celebrated an anniversary in years past. So, I set up a nice table with candles and wine and we set off to pick up...our dinners. We were met by a man who quickly got our order and brought it out in a sturdy bag. Inside was a delicious aroma and a cute bag of Margaux's swag. It made the meal even more special. This is one anniversary that we won't forget! Next year, I want to be able to dine inside as I remember how nice it was.More
