A superb eatery and one of the top local restaurants in Raleigh, NC, Margaux’s Restaurant first opened its doors in 1992. The venue was established by co-owner Steve Horowitz and his brother-in-law Richard Hege, with the aim of creating a comfortable, stylish atmosphere for diners and a tight-knit, personal environment for employees.

Four years later, Chef Andrew Pettifer moved to North Carolina and joined Margaux’s staff as Chef de Cuisine, and transformed Margaux’s menu from strictly French to a delightful fusion of French, Southern and Asian cuisines. Since then, Margaux’s has become one of the top Raleigh dinner restaurants and a venue where guests like to stay awhile, dining on delicious, rich cuisine that changes daily.

Guests can meet Pettifer and his staff of six chefs over the counter of Margaux’s open kitchen to discuss politics or to request a special dish for the evening. The restaurant focuses on serving only the freshest produce from our local purveyors. For that perfect cocktail; we offer an array of spice-infused syrups and blends for an amazing libation.


At Margaux’s, you’ll find an ever-changing menu, a flair for impeccable service, and an energetic ambiance with progressive décor. The result is the flawless dining experience we have become known for over the past 31 years.

We call it the Perfect Fusion of a High-Energy Metropolis and Soulful Southern Hospitality.
Come and be a part of Margaux’s dining experience.
