profile image It's All Good at Bistrot Margot

This is a great spot for a night on the town with friends. Good to know - they have valet for $12 so you don't need to hunt for parking. I liked that. As for the room - imagine a traditional French bistro... excellent wine selection...standard French fare and atmosphere. A bit cramped... but in an intimate sort of way... not in a negative way. In other words, you feel like you're "part of something" when you enter the room. Earlier in the afternoon, our dinner party grew from 4 to 6 with very late notice and they graciously accommodated us. Then we grew from 6 to 8! Got there about 5 minutes early with a game plan to hang at the bar until our table was ready... to my surprise, they had us ready to be seated already. I was hugely impressed by the service. Now... what you really want to know - How Was The Food, Man? The food was good, I'm not going to pull your leg. Everything I tasted was *good* and I don't think you'll be disappointed. The ladies raved about their seafood dishes (tilapia/salmon). I had a filet... it was a filet. How can you not enjoy a filet? But, the name of the game at Bistrot Margot seems to be service & atmosphere. We ate... headed over to their bar area for a few more libations after dinner... and finished up around 11:15. Things were just heating up in Old Town though. Lines out the door and down the block at 3 or 4 different bars/clubs. So, in a nutshell, I think dinner & drinks at Bistrot Margot followed by some bar-hopping in Old Town equals a fantastic night on the town with good friends.
