    If you are looking for a really good casual French restaurant....the kind that has the standbys like onion soup, escargots and offal......then this is the place for you. Unlike many of the French restaurants in NYC with similar menus that are stale and dated, the food at La Mirabelle is consistently delicious and the service is warm and efficient. Don't pass up the Dover sole if it is on the menu.

    I was taking a friend out for her birthday and tried to think of a place where we could actually hear each other talk. I remembered Mirabelle. Not only was it still a comfortable, cozy, and casually elegant place with low-pitched voices -- but the food was better than ever. My herbed lamb chops with a vegetable medley was superb and my friend's steak was delicious. The dessert we shared -- a fresh fruit tart with real whipped cream was scrumptious and satisfying. My friend was delighted with her birthday dinner.

    A great old school French Restaurant. Everything about our evening was wonderful and memorable. We will definitely visit again. I found the prices very reasonable and the serves generous. The staff are warm, friendly and yet professional. There are obviously many regulars among the clientele, and I can understand why.

    Mirabelle continues to be one of my favorite dining places in NY. The food is always excellent (many times the specials are outstanding) and the service is perfect. The noise level was high on this visit because at the next table a father and his two sons were discussing (loudly) the Yankees and Giants all evening and how they would run the ball clubs! Danielle, the chanteuse/waitress, serenaded a couple of birthdays and an anniversary, making the evening even more enjoyable. Many from the neighborhood seem to go there weekly. Rightly so.

    We used to enjoy eating at La Mirabelle at its former location. We thought it would be great for a group of 6 friends. We had a table that was away from the noise. But, the problem arose when it came time to pay. The waitress put the tip on the bill. When the person at the cash register noticed that, he became arrogant and rude and said that the tip should not have been included. He then recalculated the bill. The recalculated bill had an error, which we found because we were annoyed at this person. The error was $225. It was refunded. A friend of ours had forewarned us that they had had errors in their bills on two previous occasions. Because of this experience, we don't plan on returning. CHECK YOUR BILL IF YOU EAT AT LA MIRABELLE.

    Excellent, classic French cuisine. Noise level OK, but not as quiet as I remembered. Made reservation over a week ago and got stuck at one of 3 tables near bar and kitchen door; my chair was repeatedly bumped by waiters going back and forth. Place packed at 7:00 on a Wednesday. Next time, would call for an appointment to specify where NOT to sit. Coquilles St Jacques excellent. Duck: fat on skin should have been more rendered off.

    Ok this may not be a 5 start chefs hat restaurant but it is good quality dining with great service. The menu items are well thought through French classics. The service is friendly but professional and very attentive. This is a classic restaurant that I go back to on every trip to NY. It is very convenient to the subway as well!

    It was my 65th birthday so I wanted a restaurant with good food and a nice atmosphere. La Mirrabelle fit the bill . We arrived on time and were seated immediately. The lady who took our order was, I think, the owner. Lovely person with a warm smile and welcoming attitude. Service was quick and efficient. My steak au poivre was cooked perfectly - tender and juicy and had plenty of the delicious pepper sauce. During the meal, a server sang some lovely French songs and that just capped off the evening. We were each given a complimentary glass of a dessert wine with our desserts. All in all, a perfect experience for my birthday (and I did not mention to the staff that it was my birthday - I'm not into celebrations). Worth every penny!

    This is a perfect restaurant to choose when you want to act and be treated like an adult. The classic French food is carefully prepared and well-priced, the chairs are comfortable, the noise level enables conversation (at normal levels) and the service is professional, congenial and unhurried. We go there frequently and even our fanciest friends walk out pleasantly surprised at how wonderful their meal was.

    La Mirabelle is a neighborhood gem on the Upper West Side. A family owned and run business with a friendly welcome, efficient and consistent service and great French food! While catering to an older crowd with early reservations, La Mirabelle should be a "go to" place for a younger audience looking for a quiet spot to have a conversation and an excellent meal with well priced wines and a generous pour. A perfect spot for "parties" with large round tables and balcony seating . . not to mention a singing waitress who makes the event even more special with her rendition of Happy Birthday!! La Mirabelle should be on everyone's dinner list and is deserving of it's regular clientele and great reputation.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
