“Unique, uncompromising & simply delicious”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Margaux's has been a special place to me since I first went there, almost 20 years ago. I was just a teenager then and knew they were on to something very cool, there was no place like it. I had traveled around a bit and it felt more like a big city Restaurant, kind of transformed you from being in Raleigh

The atmosphere was cosmopolitan, eclectic and has been updated nicely through the years.
Service is always friendly and on point. Everything is top-notch, starting from the Bar, to organic veggies, the freshest Seafood and all the way to Desserts made in house to finish things off (do save room).

They do a wonderful job of bringing in flavors from all over the world and changing up the menu to include seasonal ingredients. There is not one type of cuisine I do not like, I make it a point to at least try everything once. I have not traveled everywhere I want to go yet, but this establishment is in my top 5 Restaurants. I just like everything about it.

Give them a try for your next special night out, you may find a new favorite place -

“Great dining experience”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

A creative menu with food that can match most of the best. Not to be missed is the early dining special......three courses with great selections for a reasonable price.

Wow! Where to begin? The food, the service, the atmosphere, the overall experience was outstanding. Margaux's Restaurant is the epitome of what restaurants should be in the Triangle. On our most recent visit, we had a new waiter-Conrad. His recommendations of wine-to-food pairings, and knowledge of the business itself showed. He is a great addition to the already friendly and experienced staff at Margaux's. Our meal was extraordinary.

“Consistently excellent dinner fare”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

The food is always delicious and interesting at dinner. Great place to go for a romantic celebration or a business dinner. Lunch... it is best to check the menu online before going. It is not as consistently worth the trip as the dinner menu.

“Went for drinks, want to go back for the food”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

The bartender and staff were very friendly. The drinks were great and from the looks of the food on the tables I will definitely go back for their food.
