Awesome New Restaurant in Narberth – I have to say that I have been to many restaurants in my time and am pretty particular about which ones I like. That is why I am so excited that "Margot" has come to Narberth- it is now at the top of my list. I just went for the third time on Saturday night and once again left very pleased and looking forward to my next visit. The food is really great- interesting, tasty and there are so many unique choices. I've made it a point to order something different each time and haven't been disappointed yet. My favorites so far are the goat cheese salad, shrimp & chorizo app, meatloaf and the fish specials. My fiance loves it as much as I do- she loves the food and I think she also loves Margot's story because one day she dreams of opening a restaurant, too. Margot has come over and talked with us everytime we've been there and she's really great....she also seems to LOVE food. Would definitely recommend the place- it's even worth the trek from the city because you almost feel like this place belongs there. Great find!
What a Wonderful Place! – I'm never sure what to expect when going to a new restaurant, especially when they are in the first few weeks of opening, but ended up loving "Margot." It is such a nice atmosphere, with the really interesting green-blue walls, the linens, candles and flowers. The menu is amazing and so eclectic- I can't believe this is Margot's first place and she doesn't have any official culinary training. The food was so good and really nicely presented. It's the kind of menu where you would never get bored. I could eat here at least once a week (I've already been there 4 times) and be really happy. It looks like many other people have the same opinion because the place is really jumping for being so new! I definitely recommend making a reservation on the weekends. Margot has even stopped by our table personally, which is a really nice gesture. She is young and personable and makes a great impression.
Good luck to them and I highly recommend checking it out if you are in the neighborhood. Beautiful website, too!
Editorial Review by Michael Alarcon – This bustling neighborhood bistro offers up top-notch modern-American cusine and B.Y.O.B. which equals to a casual, but upscale night out.
Good start... potential to be really solid BYOB – Margot offers a friendly, warm atmosphere. We enjoy BYOBs, so it's always nice to find a new one so close to home. The service was prompt and the timing between courses was well spaced. The winter salad was nice except that the champagne/oil dressing a little bitter. My gorgonzola crostini was quite nice. For entrees, my girlfired had the risotto of the day (red wine risotto with beef medallions) and I tried the duck, which was served with mashed potatoes and fried zuchinni. The flavors were nice but the execution and pairings were a bit off. The medallions were overcooked slightly, which can happen with thin cuts of meat. And my overall meal was heavy. The duck was nicely prepared but may have been better if served with lighter sides.
The owner and staff seem intent on getting input from patrons so they can get it right. I applaud that approach. We'll go back in six months and see how they're doing.
Fantastic new place in Narberth – I really enjoyed my first experience at Margot the service was great; wait staff was all smiles and didn't miss a beat. The food is packed with flavor, my appetizer of risotto cakes with creme fraiche and a sweet potato pancake with apples and chipotle sour cream, that whole table shared, almost made me forget about the pepper crusted filet I chose as an entree. I left happy and full...really can't say enough about the place; great addition to the neighborhood!
Great New Gem in Narberth – Just opened in same location as Carmines Creole, which is moving to Bryn Mawr... totally different menu... great salads, big flavors, interesting combinations. I really liked Carmines but love Margot... could eat there 5 nights/week. Prices and service are great as well.
