Having often traveled across Europe, especially France, I have had a lot of experience with Prix Fixe menus. The objective of these is to provide the diner with the a fixed price encompassing a starter, main and dessert.
Living close by to Margeaux's, my wife and I decided to try out this option last evening. We were awfully disappointed. While the front of the house is excellent, the food did not come close to matching.
My wife's Caesar was bland, lacking any evidence of anchovies in the dressing. Her Striped Bass was simply horrible, under cooked fish and green beans. On the other hand, the potatoes were over cooked. My Terrine lacked flavor, my Scallops dish had a grand total of 3 .... I was still hungry upon finishing. The portions are quite a bit smaller than the regular menu items.
On the bright side, the creme brule was decent.
This was our 3rd visit to this Restaurant - 2 of the 3 have been sub par... Suffice it to say, we would rather eat at the Chineese take out establishment next door
Pick up your game Margeaux's...
