It was expectedly busy, but we were treated well and got our table quickly. It took a little bit to get our initial drinks... read more

While out looking for light dinner we stumbled upon Brasserie Margaux. Perfect timing it was happy hour. We sat in the lounge ordered a couple cocktails and four different appetizers. Our service was great, cocktails were very good and came out quick. The food also came out quick, but was just average. The crab cake was burnt on the bottom... More

We met here for breakfast with a client as it was near to their office. We had eaten here before so we knew what to expect. Breakfast comes American style with as much as you can drink coffee! It's ok but could be better - I am sure you can find breakfast in an alternative establishment for a better price... More

Breakfast was expensive and service was ok but the lady that was serving seems to be in pain so that was probably a factor. Price for coffee and tea were high I thought.

For six years, I lived within walking distance of this restaurant. It was quite good and it became a semi-regular place for me and my SO at the time. Then we broke up and I moved to another part of the city. My wife and I were looking for a place that served dinner on Christmas, which, in Seattle at... More

It is not as busy as nearby restaurants and not as well renowned. Although hesitant after Lola and Dahlia Lounge, we found the food very good and, again, the service was very personable. If you like your oatmeal in the morning, this is the place to go.

Breakfast was a bit on the pricey side, but for the location and convenience, it couldn't be beat! The drink specials and tapas specials (3 for the price of 2) were excellent!

My cousin and I ate at the Brasserie recently before going to the opera. The waiter did a fabulous job of serving us quickly and recommending dishes that would accommodate our limited time. The lamb shanks were very good but most of the other plates were unremarkable.

We were wanting just a good basic breakfast, ie bacon, eggs, and cereal and we got just that at a very reasonable price in a very nice restaurant. Service was great as well.
