"It almost doesn't matter what I say, because Bistrot Margot is now closed. Four of us were there on New Year's eve, their last night. We all had been there many times before, and really enjoyed the restaurant. This was not their finest hour. A steak was tough. Chicken was dry, and replaced with more dry chicken. I think the food had been prepared much earlier for the first seating (this was the second seating) and was just sitting around. Even dessert, the profiteroles, which we had ordered many times before, was just a big blob. Service was not great. We thought this would have been a spectacular goodbye, but that was not the case. Amazingly, I got an email 2 days ago asking what I thought, but giving nowhere to say what I thought, and urging me to make another reservation. One of the owners was present, but in all the years we had been customers, none of us had ever seen the owners. It didn't make the food or experience any better. It just made it easier to leave what had been a long time and treasured friend."

"I know this place has been here for a while but I never tried it. I heard they were closing and thought I'd try it for Brunch. It was very good and the service was outstanding. Easy to book reservation, and drinks were tasty too."

"Our group had a wonderful pre-theater lunch, as we do 3 or so times a year. We were so upset to find out that Bistrot Margot is closing at the end of the year. Always dependable, good food, nicely served. Maybe the owner will re-open once the new building is built? We can only hope. Thanks for years of good food and good service!"

"It was absolutely delicious! I had the eggs benedict and my friend the french onion soup and the bistrot salad. So sad you are closing the end of the month hopefully you'll find another location to re open. You will be missed"
