Nice German restaurant and
Nice German restaurant and bar. A little tight for Mom's wheelchair, but we made it in. Schnitzel is the best I ever had! Spaetzle is very good too. Was amazed at the shrimp my niece ordered. Probably our favorite of the table. Two of us went home with quarts of the spicy goulash. Mmmmmm spicy good! Easy relaxing atmosphere. Not noisy, so we could hear each other talk. And comfortable service. Very efficient without being overbearing. Also loved the apple strudel ... but the black forest cherry cake was our favorite! Okay, and then there was their beers..... You have to try this place!

Great Authentic German
If you like authentic German food, Mirabell is a great place to eat. The restaurant is family owned, and has a homey feel. It's like sitting down in a home in Germany for a great meal. The layout is a bit cumbersome, and it the ambiance is not exactly appealing. However, Mirabell is not trying to be that kind of place. What they do, they do well. Everything from the soup to the appetizer, to the main dish was well done.

Great German Food
This is about the only really good German restaurant left in the city. The others are passable with OK food. Our food was REALLY very good. The sauces were very tasteful, and the portions were large, but not overly large. The servers were exceptionally friendly and right on top of everything. They were attentive without being pushy or hovering. We had a great time and will certainly return.

Business Lunch, Perfect Spot
I met with one of my mentors at this quaint German restaurant conveniently located right off the Addison exit of the Kennedy. Greeted right away by the barkeep and server, I was brought to a quiet corner table while I waited for him to arrive. Coffee was good, and kept coming, no need to ask for a refill. Server was super gracious in allowing us to talk and plan for about 45 minutes before we even looked at the menu; never felt pressured. We each ordered the Wurstplatte. I've eaten at a few German spots around the city and Mirabell gives them all a run for their money, even the noted Bierstube. The wurst was fantastic. The ambience welcoming, and not too noisy. Simply fantastic. P.S. I used to be a restaurant manager.

Always a favorite!!!!
I have been to Mirabell several times, and it never disappoints! Having been to several other of the authentic German restaurants in the city, I still feel prefer the food here the best. The beer selection is also a nice blend of authentic German beers, as well as some local Midwest craft brews. The interior is quaint with just the perfect touch of German flare, yet still feeling like it can be your local neighborhood hangout. All in all, a great dining experience!

We are new to the neighborhood
We are new to the neighborhood and went by to check it out. We'll definitely return. Food was very good and the server was a very nice, conscientious person. You have to like German food but, if you do, it is a terrific place.

Mirabel has always been our favorite spot for German cuisine. My wife is first gen German American and she, along with her parents, say the food is high quality and authentic to their native faire. The schnitzels are terrific as well as the pork dishes and goulash. You can't beat the cozy ambiance, especially during Oktoberfest, when Mirabel becomes the happiest restaurant in town! The owner is always there to greet you and really makes you feel appreciated.

One of the best German restaurants
One of the best German restaurants left in Chicago. After going there numerous times over many years, we were surprised to find a simplified menu: from a multi-page menu down to a single page. The quality of the food did not change, but the selection was much less. Also, it appeared that the owners may be trying to turn this into a neighborhood sports bar because there were three large screen TVs in the main dining room with three sporting events on at all times.

Good German food
Mirabell just reopened after some remodeling and the food continues to be good as always. All four members of our group had the wiener schnitzel, which was nicely done and quite tasty. We will go there again.
