“Country French heaven”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is one of my favorite Nashville restaurants. The building is a gorgeously repurposed old warehouse in the Five Points section of East Nashville. The chef's standards for authentic, local food is second to none in the area. Traditional and more edgy menu items will please most diners. Service can be a little snooty but professional. The bartenders are first rate. Make a reservation and plan to make a night of it. Leave room for dessert. A great place for fresh seafood, too.

“Delicious”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Margot lived up to its excellent reviews. The food was outstanding, the wine list offered variety and was reasonably priced, and the service was helpful and attentive. Our bill for 2 including appetizers and a bottle of wine was about $120 which is a bargain for a meal of this quality

“Dining At Margo Cafe And Bar”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We arrived at 5:45 PM. Some of the employees were outsde the restaurant so we pulled up and asked where do we park? There appears to be only 2 parking spaces outside the restaurant and the rest of the parking on the street or behind the restaurant. One of the girls said "park here, this is princess parking" and directed us to one of the spaces in front. We were then greeted and seated by a friendly gentleman. Our waiter was very attentive and offered excellent service. Four of us have been traveling from Texas through the Southern states for 2 weeks. This place offered one of the best meals we've had.

“Go Eat Here Now!”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic dinner here last night. The night started with a bottle of wine. They have a decent list and our bottle was very good and priced at $44, which isn't too bad. We asked for recommendations from our waitor and we were not dissapointed. We ordered the homemade potato chips with aoili (sp) sauce. It was huge and was exactly what I expected and tasted good. This however was our least favorite item we had. We then shared the kale salad. Fantastic salad! It was so good. We enjoyed some homemade foccacia bread which was also delicious. My husband had the seared tuna steak with mashed potatoes. It was phenomenal. He loved it and I loved it also, and I am not usually a big fan of tuna. I had the seafood linguine. Homemade pasta with chunks of white fish like snapper. The tomato sauce had so much flavor but didn't overshadow the fish and pasta. All the components went together so well. For dessert we went with the chocolate tarte. What an amazing way to finish the dinner. The cake had a great chocolate flavor without being sweet or bitter. The service was great and we sat outside in the patio enjoying the night and the quiet. They had great music being piped in. Outstanding dinner and I wish we lived here so we could become regulars. The menu changes daily.

“Premium dining and location”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

I love Margot's. It can get a bit pricey, but it is worth it because they feature some of the best food in Nashville. Very eclectic menu, highlighting some unusual and also casual dishes. Great wine list, beautiful atmosphere and seating. Kind of tight when you enter (the bar is right there), but the place is awesome. Located right at Five Points in East Nashville. If you can't dine here, atleast check out Margot's other restaurant, Marche, located just a block over.
