Our experience at Miga was fantastic! A colleague and I were hosting guests from the Napa Valley, and they were extremely impressed with the food and the service. They told us that you could take the restaurant, plop it down in Los Angeles, and it would be a hit. In my Open Table reservation, I alerted the restaurant that our guests own a well-regarded winery and that I would appreciate it if they could offer a couple of their wines that evening, and they made a point of having 3 or 4 of their labels on hand. The couple was impressed. Five stars all around! More
