Our server was fantastic! Definitely check this place out! We'll be back!

They need to work on service. When we were here years ago, the service was impeccable. Last night, we stood at the host stand for a good 3-4 minutes before anyone came over and it was a server not the host. The server herself seemed lackluster to our table. I thought maybe since we were a Groupon, we were getting the shaft. She spent a great deal of time at other tables explaining things but never told us about any specials beyond what was on the special card. (They have a plat du jour which we never heard about). She also never asked us, once we got our entrees, how our food was.

My girlfriends and I really enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Bistrot Margot. The male host was very nice, however our waitress was a bit odd and would be talking to us and another table at the same time. At times, she was also rude and short. But, this also reminded me of France and how French people dislike Americans so maybe it is part of the show?

Last time I was here, I had the duck and it was delish. My date order the duck special this time but it was not as good. I had the skate wing but was not as impressed as the last time I dined here.

Our waiter was not attentive at all! However the rest of the waitstaff was good, food came at a good time, plates cleared, water glasses filled.

From Our Editors

The transformation of a 16-year-old cook in the American Red Cross cafeteria into a sophisticated French chef and restaurant owner doesn’t happen overnight. Urged into a culinary career by his cafeteria coworkers, Joe Doppes graduated from the Culinary Institute of America before apprenticing under the greats at Le Pavillon and Le Cygne in New York, as well as the five-star Le Francais. This last position drew him to Chicago, where he set his sights on launching his own restaurant. After triumphing over cancer and rebounding from his first restaurant attempt, Doppes realized his dream in Old Town in 1999 with Bistrot Margot—which he named for his daughter rather than ballet dancer Margot Fonteyn, who could whisk eggs with her feet.

Upon the bistro’s opening, it drew praise from Phil Vettel of the Chicago Tribune for its “excellent” and “classic” French cuisine. Doppes dives headfirst into French culinary traditions with gourmet meats such as parmesan-encrusted veal, center-cut filet mignon, and roasted duck, and fresh seafood such as roasted tilapia and pan-seared whitefish. The chef and his team augment these foundations with capered citrus butter and dijon beurre blanc before pairing them with lavish sides such as saffron-and-asparagus risotto. At midday, entrees join a roster of upscale sandwiches piled with grilled sirloin and gouda, and the weekend brunch features decadent benedicts and crepes stuffed with gruyère and pesto.

To set the stage for these feasts, interior designer Vicky Tessmer drew inspiration from turn-of-the-century Paris. She paired tapestries, dark wood trim, and wall sconces with art-nouveau touches such as a stained-glass window over french doors, which lead to an outdoor patio. A roaring fireplace and walls done in cheery yellows and reds keep guests feeling cozy, and a marble-topped bar and leather stools accommodate tipplers who order one of the many French vintages from the wine list.
