I have little words to say how perfect was my Sunday lunch at Miramar. I had the bouillabaisse, some french fries and an apple tart. Everything was absolutely perfect, the food, the service, the place, the music and the virgin mojito they prepared for me....More

Gabe has the best trained staff and the food is always spot on. Always order a Mojito you will not be disappointed. Have a great evening with Gabe and his team!!!

I used to come here frequently 10 years ago or so--but after a bad experience with our server--I stopped coming back. I am so happy we were forced to return during Super Bowl Sunday--when so many other restaurants in the area were closed. Our dinner...More

We (a group of friends) recently visited Miramar Bistro due to the overwhelmingly positive reviews here, and unfortunately (maybe it was the late hour or an off night) were mostly left unimpressed. We could get reservation only for 8pm (not surprising for a popular place...More
