A word from Miriam
Miriam restaurant provides a popular, fast paced, and delicious brunch menu on the weekend in an atmosphere that is suitable for couples, groups, and kids alike. The dinner is more intimate and relaxed. Miriam offers a happy hour special at the bar on Monday - Sunday from 5:00 to 8:00pm, which provides 2 for 1 Mezes, Wine, and Beer. Miriam also has Early Bird Special, Monday - Thursday from 4:00 to 7:00pm, a 25% discount on your meal. At Miriam Restaurant the cuisine is uniquely, distinctly Israeli. Yet what exactly is Israeli Cuisine? To enter the subject is not unlike entering a sea by foot and feeling a sudden deepening. Unlike French food, Chinese food, Italian food, one does not unfold the menu at Miriam with a set of associations firm in the mind. There exist no single dish, no single style of preparation that one might call uniquely Israeli. And yet this lack of identity is its identity, its beauty.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "tiniest portion of hummus imagineable (and it came with a single tiny piece of pita), majorly skimping; bland moussaka eggplant; even in an empty restaurant they wouldn't let the two of us sit at one of the multiple empty tables for four, or even split one of the four-person tables (they were composed of two two-person tables side-by-side); we ended up sitting in a spot with weird lighting in the back middle of the restaurant, not ideal."

  • "We came here with a group of my daughters' friends for a celebratory dinner. The food was excellent. The waiter was amazing, so lovely and and patient with our group who came in at different times and everyone ordering randomly. He even ran outside after one of the girls who had forgotten her leftovers. He really was a highlight of the dinner! Thank you to him for all of his hard work and hospitality, I am sorry I can't remember his name. We will definitely go back so I will be able to thank him in person. Loved the couscous and fried cauliflower!"

  • "We are at Miriam on a Friday night with a party of 10 People. The food was beyond excellent, great for sharing. The only thing that could have been more pleasant was our table placement. We were seated in the back corner, making it tight for a party of our size. Service was excellent, we will be back to try their brunch soon."

  • "Our friends and family love Miriam. The food is usually excellent and the service friendly. Was a bit disappointed that a couple of the meze had changed and that the waitress didn't comply with a request to switch the rice on an entree for a vegetable. Otherwise I would have given 5 stars."

  • "We usually love this restaurant great food and ambiance, and would love to recommend it,but not this time. service was very slow and not attentive, we were a family hoping for nice early dinner, we arrive at 6:30 and didnt leave before 9:15, almost 3 hours..unsustainable for family with small kids.

  • "My sister was in town with her three children (including a 1 year old - who was a bit upset/in discomfort). The wait staff brought us some watermelon for the baby to suck on to keep her calm and couldn't have been more overall attentive and pleasant - which is not easy with a screaming child. BRAVO for being family friendly and so accommodating!"

  • "Our group of 8 went here, and had a wonderful evening. We only had the mezze, but we had a LOT of them, probably most of them on the menu, and dessert of course. The service was attentive and friendly but not overbearing. The food was delicious and fresh. I highly recommend Miriam!"

  • "Miriam's is a wonderful restaurant on the North Slope. Its Israel/Mid-eastern cuisine is very very good and the wait service is special. My only compliant is the nose, but of course that is a Problem in many many restaurants..."

  • "My boyfriend and I enjoyed a wonderful evening at Miriam's on New Year's evening. The service was timely, warm, friendly and the food was very good and a great selection of wines. My filet mignon was cooked to a perfection. We will definitely go back again. I have heard brunch is very good as well. The menu was also very reasonably priced given the quality in presentation and ingredients. Hats off to the cook:)"

  • "A very reasonably priced NYE dinner. The soup they had was fabulous, but the appetizers to follow weren't what we were hoping for. The main dishes tasted fine, but nothing to write home about. The duck would be your best option out of the main plates."

  • "I have been to Miriam before for brunch, but this was my 1st dinner there. It was pre-fixe for NYE. The crab cake was delightful as was the risotto and duck my gf and I had as entrees."

  • "This was our second time for dinner at Miriams. Both times we were seated without having to wait You should make a reservation as this is a small restaurant and it fills up very quickly. They do not have liquor, just beer and wine. The food portions are just the right size and they are priced accordingly. . The owner is very attentive and friendly. While I have a young child is pretty adventurous when it comes to his food this might not be the right place to take a child who just eats pizza and burgers. It is a small, charming restaurant with a very pleasant atmosphere. The food is delicious and presented very nicely. It is within walking distance of the Atlantic Terminal and the Barclay Center."

  • "We were looking for a place close to Barclays Arena to eat. A friend recommended Miriam. We were not disappointed. The Chicken Schnitzel was delicious! My friend ordered the meatballs in pomegranate sauce, quinoa salad, Za'atar Bread and butternut squash from the Meze section of the menu. She loved each dish. We will return to this restaurant the next time we attend a performance at Barclays."

  • "Beautiful space but food not all that, especially not for the price . Service was good, and there were no complaints but after going to so many middle eastern restaurants I was hoping for tastier food"
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "Wish they had a few more vegetarian options but overall the food was delicious and incredibly filling. We had excellent food and the ambiance was lively but not too loud that you could still have a conversation and hear the other person at the table. My only complaint is that it took a bit longer than expected to receive our meal, but the staff was friendly. I would definitely go again."

  • "Miriam was very accommodating for our large group of 8. The meatballs with pomegranate sauce appetizer was particularly delicious. Service was attentive but a little uneven. Overall nice experience and we will return."

  • "Great food as well as atmosphere, server Sacha was extremely friendly and polite, food was tasty, portions good size, waiting time for food little bit above average but not a biggie. Great reason to come to Brooklyn. Good job Raphael, will see you again for sure."

  • "Brought my family here on a Friday when they came to visit. Love mezedes but we went with entrees since we had heard good reviews and were not disappointed - the pistachio encrusted cod with currant sauce was amazing! We did get a few meze to share as apps - beets were surprisingly good. Calamari was a bit greasy, but baklava was just the right amount of sweet. A little bit loud to hear everyone across our 6 person table, but will definitely be back."

  • "Great spot before going to Barclay's Center, only a few blocks away. You might even find a parking space nearby and save on lot fees! We'll be back..."

  • "This restaurant was recommended by the hosts at the place we were staying. Decided to try it out with friends, a group of 6 to see what it was like. Turned out an excellent experience. Hot was different, delicious, and good size serves. Prices were good and the service was excellent. Maybe the speed of the meals was a little quick, ie seemed no time between starters and entree but overall and excellent night. Would recommend to anyone who wants cuisine that is different from the ordinary but full of flavour."

  • "We went to Miriam for a celebratory dinner. I did like the ambiance, wine list, and Middle Eastern decor....that's about as Middle Eastern as it gets. We ordered appetizers, which were served oh so sparingly, and different fish, which we all agreed was somewhat underflavored. At a Middle Eastern table, there is usually an abundance...maybe too much...of everything. I can't say the same at Miriam. Pita is brought out one at a time (we were a group of four), and when you order borekas, it is one boreka. The waitstaff was also kind of un-informed. Doubtful we will return."

  • "I liked this restaurant. The food was good, varied, and presented well. We were there on a very busy night - Passover - so it was somewhat noisy by virtue of there being a full restaurant, but I could imagine that normally if you sat up the back it would be quiet. I loved the fact that we could either order from the Passover menu or from the regular menu or could combine both. With a diverse crowd that made it a major plus. Service was prompt and no one hassled us to move out. Would recommend."

  • "A standout among restaurant in Park Slope. Innovative and updated approach to Middle eastern food. Definitely going back for a second try."
    Dined on 3/20/2013
  • "All of our appetizers were delicious... except the babaganoush didn't have much flavor. Also the chicken schwarma was very big and filling... but I wish they used chicken breast instead of chicken thigh. Either way, the food is delicious and I highly recommend."

  • "My friend and I who aren't big eaters were able to share the Dine Out Brooklyn $28 3 course meal. The staff was so accommodating. I told the manager I liked red wine but couldn't go to heavy because the tannin is to acidic for me -- makes my mouth feel weird. So he let me taste some wines. When I found one that was wonderful -- there wasn't a per glass price so he charged me $8 the lowest price per glass. The meal was delicious (I've eaten there before) but always got the 4 mez dishes for $14. Never had the entrees. We shared the grilled Bronzino with white beans and kale. It was very, very good. The fish was grilled perfectly and the white beans and kale were fabulous accompaniments. Panna Cotta was great too."

  • "We enjoyed the food but our table was seated right in the middle of what felt like a busy foot traffic highway (in the middle of the restaurant in the back near the stairs). It wouldn't have been so bad except that some of the servers were, literally, running(!) and when the servers & foodrunners stepped down the stairs they were often leaping--so a heavy thud would come down next to us every few seconds. A rug on the floor would have made a big difference. I would recommend requesting that you don't get sat at this table-or the one in front of the entrance and also maybe not the community table (if you are a couple). The staff did try to re-accomodate us at the community table but we passed. Good food/service-but loud & close qua"
