I went there last night and it was incredibly stressful and unpleasant. The bartenders and busboys were chatting about their personal lives with each other -- which would have been fine if they hadn't continued their conversations even as they walked around the room and so conducted their conversations by SHOUTING at each other across the whole length of the bar, or from one side of the dining room to the other as they moved about the restaurant. It wasn't one or two staff -- all the staff were doing it. And it didn't happen just once or twice: it continued as long as we were there. Brasserie Margaux apparently doesn't bother to train its staff. It is incredibly annoying to have some waitress shouting over your head at another staffperson across the dining room because she wants to continue to talk with her colleagues while she is moving about the dining room. These staff were literally standing 30 to 40 feet apart (I am not exaggerating) and yelling at each other. One of the bartenders was the worst. Listen lady, I do NOT want to hear about how you parked illegally and your car was towed. Just keep it to yourself. If you absolutely must talk about your personal life with your coworkers, at least use your indoor voice, and talk to the busboy only if he is actualy within a few feet of you, so that your incredibly inane and boring personal problems are not inflicted on every diner in the room. I do not come to a nice restaurant so I can learn about your parking issues. I come so I can share some time with my husband. I literally couldn't hear what my husband was saying to me across the table because the waitresses, busboys, and bartenders were so busy sharing their problems with each other at the top of their lungs. This behavior was just beyond rude. No one should behave like this (well, maybe at a football game, if it's appropriate in context) -- but at a ""fine"" restaurant? You find better atmosphere at a Denny's.
Pros: Food was adequate.
Cons: Horrible, tacky, rude, inappropriate staff.
