SquareMeal Review of Margaux

Bronze Award

As the name suggests, Margaux is as much about wine as it is about food. Sixteen house selections come in four different sizes for easy matching and, boy, is there some matching to be done on this menu. From homemade pork terrine and tuna tartare with umami-rich miso dressing, via pappardelle with rabbit ragù or confit duck with cocoa, pear compote and blackberries, right through to tarte Tatin, you can almost taste the wine you're going to drink. Enthusiastic staff will guide you towards choice bottles from the 200-strong list, and there's plenty of interest below £50 – though you might be tempted to splash out on that namesake Bordeaux. The urban decor – all Brooklyn bare bricks and pendant lights – might not be the perfect fit for such classic food and wine, but the room is comfortable and atmospheric.

Worth going for a drink
Lovely setting on the Old Brompton Road. You really want to be at the bar or downstairs. Bare walls and good lighting for the ladies. Feels a bit like downtown New York. Can't say much about the food as it's not quite there yet. Definitely not a place to eat large portions and some diners may be leaving feeling hungry. The wine list is really lovely and I would recommend this as a place which is worth a try.

Love it
We live in the neighborhood and were so pleased to find a new nice restaurant with such great wines open. The food certainly exceeded our expectations and we loved the setting. Will definitely be returning – a new favorite!

Pleasant discovery
Tried it last Sunday – very nice and cozy environment in what used to be before a run-down Nepalese restaurant (a welcome change for us locals, i must say). As it was the first time we visited the place tried quite a few items on the menu – the pork terrine, the chevice, foie gras, gnocchi (amazing italian cheese dressing, but forgot to take note of the name), and then a provencal lamb rack. all delicious, simple and rich of taste. wine list is very robust. my wife is a sommelier and she was pleasantly surprised by the choices: very france and italy centric but with some interesting new world picks. went for a very interesting German Riesling (suggestion of the manager, would have never picked a German wine I must confess) and a Pinot Noir from California recommended by the owner, which was an excellent discovery (searched it on google when i went out and found an enlighting, dedicated review from Jancis Robinson, which makes me think the owners spent a lot of time in putting together the list…). not cheap, but top food, very good wine picks (also by the glass and caraffe), very cool setting (I spend a lot of time in NY and it reminds me of some places there). already booked for a dinner with colleagues in december
