  • A French Family Tradition . . .
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 9/3/2014
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    UnknownReviewer
    Dined on 5/17/2014
    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.
