On this night, the service was poor and the food was below par. We have been there many times over the past 10 years and we were surprised at how bad the service and food were in comparison. Left very disappointed.

We have just recently discovered your restaurant and it has become one of our favorites, and we come from Mount Greenwood on the southside of Chgo to enjoy dinner at your restaurant. Thank you.

The Onion Soup... usually my favorite... tasted off... and had told the hostess about it when she came to check on our meals. By the time I went to bed, I was ill from the soup. That is all I had that evening besides a wonderful bistro salad. The method of serving the soup also changed which also had a lot to do with the eating experience. It was served in a much shallower bowl, hence the "microwaving" of the soup causes it to get very thick and stew like no broth Some of the dishes had changed for the better. My guest had the duck and it was a half of duck as opposed the previously served confit (sliced breasts) The sauce and accompanying sides had also changed. Everything great

The servers are not the best. They don't tell you the specials and just plop the menus down.

I was dissapointed in the quality of food. Service was great, but the food itself was extremely average. Without the Groupon for $75, I would never go back. Also I ordered the bread pudding to go and when I got home it was a 2inch by 2inch square.

Just that Bistro Margot is a very nice place to dine. Good food, good price, and good service.

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.
