Miriam's is a neighborhood gem
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.

A standout among restaurant
A standout among restaurant in Park Slope. Innovative and updated approach to Middle eastern food. Definitely going back for a second try.

All of our appetizers were
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.

Good food at reasonable prices.
Good food at reasonable prices. The Meze (tapas style) selections, with the early bird is a steal. Friendly service and inexpensive wine.

Good neighborhood restaurant
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.

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.

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...

very good, cod was exceptional
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.

Quiet late nite dinner for two
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.

Miriam was very accommodating
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.

I had heard of Miriam but never been; it was well worth it. We had a group of 7 and were seated right away. The food was excellent! And the place is very pretty...
