La Mirabelle -
Best Restaurants in Upper West Side
I've walked by this resturant for
years and I finally had dinner - what a find! It's been around for 25+ years and now I know why. The resturant was full on a Thursday night in late August which says a lot. A lovely dining experience - warm inviting atmosphere. Not stuffy at all. Delicious."

Neighborhood fixture for many
years (previously at 86th and 9th ave)--fabulous classic French food, impeccable service. Not budget, but worth it."

Quaint restaurant, ok food, but
was so noisy, impossible to talk without yelling. Frustrating. Could hardly wait to get outside on the street, which seemed quiet compared to the restaurant."
Dined on 8/2/2014
Though packed at 9 PM on a Friday,
noise level is very comfortable. Decor is dominated by large, colorful though amateurish paintings of cottages with flower gardens. Food was mediocre for me, better for my companion who ordered a steak. My chicken liver saute appetizer was over cooked in too much oil. Monkfish was properly cooked in undistinguished sauce. Great baguettes, friendly service."

I have been going to La Mirabelle
for years. From the first moment I stepped into the restaurant, the fantastic staff treated me like family. The food is great and it is a wonderful place to go to for special occasions, or just to have a great dinner out. It is one of my favorite places."

Where else would one go on Bastile
Day! Two rousing rounds of the Marseillese (spelling??) one of America the Beautiful. Went early stayed late for the scene and a good bottle of wine at a reasonable price. A place to indulge - order oysters and ris de veau. Or rognons if one perfers. Non-internal organs available. Served elegantly, Very Bistro de Paris."

I love this restaurant for a
special occasion - in this case a birthday. Decorated with oil paintings of France, charming ambiance, main floor plus balcony. I had duck with plum sauce, which is their signature dish and was cooked just right, crispy skin, tasty sauce, not too fatty. There were interesting other choices, venison in the winter, soft shell crabs when I was there in the summer. Prices are somewhat high, most entrees in the $20's or low $30's, but well worth it. Waitress was very attentive - there is a singing waitress as well. I was there on Bastille Day, and she and all of us joined in on the Marseillaise."

La Mirabelle is our favorite
restaurant in Manhattan. Food is consistently good, ambiance is warm, friendly and courteous. We go when we are celebrating important occasions and when we need solace and sustenance. Decor is enhanced by Danielle's paintings. Annik, Tallie and Luic are the best hosts and the wait staff is amazing."

I was a customer at their original
location for many years. I was thrilled when they moved so now they're even more convenient for me. I go at least once a week either with my companion or alone. The food is classic with a very down to earth atmosphere."

When everyone in your party makes
impromptu positive remarks on the service, food etc. you know you are in for an exceptional dining experience. This was the case at La Mirabelle. For example when 2 of us mentioned that we would share the Entree, it was delivered on 2 plates. A thoughtful decision on the part of the server."
Dined on 7/1/2014
Clearly French, with lace curtains
framing the front windows, this is a solid restaurant that has an older crowd. Soft-shell crabs are in season so we were eager to try them, but disappointed in the preparation made with heavy breadcrumbs, rather than a crispy sautéed crust. The endive and blue cheese salad is generous and both visually appealing in the way it is presented as well as delicious. The veal stew was tasty, plentiful and rich, but the chocolate mousse a bit light. Since the tables for 4 are small-sized, it was possible to hear our group's conversation, despite the surrounding noise level. We will continue to frequent this restaurant, since it is always a pleasant experience and the food is generally good, but not outstanding."

Always guaranteed to serve good

We are never disappointed. The
food, and service are great, add to that the restaurant is full and you can still hear eachother! Lovely."

Good Food, good rinks and good

We absolutely love this
neighborhood gem!! The staff always makes you feel special and the food is the real star!!"

A good place for a nice,
traditional French dining experience. Our party was satisfied all around with the uncomplicated, appealing cuisine, with salads especially notable for crisp, fresh flavors. They make an excellent crepes suzette. Service was a little slow from the kitchen due to a large party, but our waitress was attentive and cheerful and problem-solving and it was a nice dining experience."

La Mirabelle has been on the Upper
West Side for many years. It is one of the few basic, neighborhood French restaurants around. The food, and the wait staff remind me of Paris. Three of us had excellent dishes. I loved the duck."
Dined on 6/15/2014
Food is outstanding. Duck special
was even juicier and more tender than the great duck with plum (Mirabelle) that is a standard on the menu..and always good. Soft shell crabs had the best preparation...flavorful with seasoning, but not too much junk. Leg of lamb spectacular. Unusual shrimp guacamole appetizer didn't seem too French, but was delicious. Service is always friendly and bustling. Atmosphere is bustling and lively despite the clientele being full of gray hairs."
Dined on 6/12/2014
It's an Upper West Side gem
restaurant. Everything was wonderfully prepared and stunningly flavorful. Really, difficult to find anything of this high quality in this neighborhood. Why, I don't know. Anyway, it's a new favorite for special occasions."
Dined on 6/7/2014
Servers are pleasant but service
is not professional. Placing and taking off items haphazard and from wrong sides of patron. Reaching over to place a dish in front of another patron. Food is not exceptional but is pretty good. Chanteuse, who is generally there on a Sat night, was not, and it was disappointing because we had several birthdays at our table and we were looking forward to her being there. Prices are high for a family/local restaurant which is what one thinks of, in general, about the La Mirabelle."

My family and I have visited La
Mirabelle often, and so have friends of ours. It's hard to find a neighborhood restaurant where the quality of the food is consistently good, and La Mirabelle delivers on that score. I don't think we've had a bad meal there. The atmosphere can be stuffy, the clientele is not young anymore, but most people come here I imagine because the restaurant has become a trusted friend. However, our latest visit was a disappointment - the service was hurried and harassed. Dishes appeared on the table before the diner had finished the previous one, the different courses followed each other with lightning speed, and the check was plunked down without our asking for it - a major no no in a good restaurant.

This was supposed to be a mother's
day brunch but all of the dishes on the menu were dinner dishes. They did offer 2 omelets in addition, which some of us ordered but they were not very good. Although there confirmation and a later communication said there was a special mother's day menu, they never sent it. Had we known the menu in advance we wouldn't have gone. A disappointing meal."

AT THIS FAMILY RUN RESTAURANT YOU
KNOW YOUR GOING TO GET SERIOUSLY PREPARED FOOD IN A COMFORTABLE ROOM. AND NO RIDICULOUS PUMPED IN "MUSIC""

Danielle was in perfect tune the
other night! So enjoyed her impromptu singing! Really made the ambience even more special. Bit disappointed in the $35.00 corkage fee...bit steep! Delicious french cuisine!"
Dined on 4/25/2014
This is a wonderful restaurant. I
have been there over the years and it remains a favorite."
Dined on 4/19/2014
If you have the chance (e.g., if
you celebrate your birthday) make sure Danielle sings for you. The food was great, we had a wonderful steak and sole meuniere. The two salads (endive was one) were also well done and fresh. The escargots were a little bit blend. The chocolate desert was delightful"

Simply outstanding! Loved the food
as well as the paintings. The artist who works at the restaurant also sings and serenaded a family for their special occasion. I am looking forward to returning soon."

We always enjoy eating there. Food

One of the few dining spots in NYC
which always seem to offer decent wines by the glass and know how to fill a glass generously."

I wish the manager could be a bit
warmer, maybe a smile now and then."

A top-rate restaurant that,
judging by the patrons who were present, seems to be favored by an older clientele, many of whom seem to be regular patrons judging by the way they were greeted by the host.Our dishes were excellent and served attentively."

Late Mirabelle is a wonderful
restaurant: excellent French food, excellent service."

I really enjoyed my meal at La
Mirabelle. The food was very good, the staff was more than pleasant and helpful. I would definitely come back here."
Dined on 3/16/2014
Très français, and a warm and
inviting place, much loved by legions of diners who happened to discover La Mirabelle over the years. Very good classic French -- a basic menu of French classics. The atmosphere is unpretentious, the welcome "chalereux," the whole experience winning and memorable."

I love the low key. welcoming
atmosphere and the ability to carry on extended conversation with fellow diners without loud background noise.. Food is reliable bistro standard, bread is wonderful, service was superb."

Great food, very consistent with
the best boulliabase (?) with a wonderful French country ambiance and one particular waitress who sings like Edith Pilaf! You can't beat that!"
Dined on 2/28/2014
The food is good and the prices
are very reasonable but everytime I have been there the staff has been obnoxious. They seems to think they are doing me a big favor by serving me."

I had the sweetbreads as an
entree. I was more than satisfied with the amount of sweetbreads that were served, but I was confused by how terribly small the other offerings on the plate were. There was literally a teaspoon of rice, a tablespoon of mashed potatoes, a teaspoon of broccoli rabe, and 7 or 8 micro-strips of carrots...I have literally seen larger portions of sides served in finer restaurants which are notorious for small portions. I was also taken aback by how unimpressive the exterior of the restaurant appeared...I almost walked past it. When I entered, again, I felt as if I was in the wrong place...only Loic was well dressed. I guess there's no need to put on a show of elegance and style if you have a 30-year following."
