I have to say, I was looking forward to going to Bistrot Margot. Then, once I obtained a groupon for it, I was set to go! Upon arriving, you are greeted by a lovely staff and red walls with slightly dimmed lighting that truly felt Parisian. The dining rooms were small, yet romantic. Certainly come here to enjoy a glass of wine with friends or your significant other. Having said that, I didn't care much for the photos of babies dressed like soldiers from the French Foreign Legion. It felt a little tacky.

The menu, however, doesn't lend itself to stay strictly French, which is a bit disappointing, given the style and ambiance of the restaurant. However, as a starter, I highly recommend the mussels. For my entree I had Blan de Poulet, Sauce Aux Herbes et Tomate. I was very disappointed by the chicken as it was clearly a piece of processed chicken breast with a thigh attached to it. It was a disappointment.

Bistrot Margot is a decent destination for the area. It felt causal and romantic at the same time. Unfortunately, the food can let you down in a few places. But, yes, there is plenty of great wines to get you through it.
