One of the few fine restaurants left that serves the traditional French dishes from before the days of nouvelle cuisine. Pricy but delicious. Attractive dining room and particularly pleasant on the balcony.

Had a yen for shrimp scampi; my husband had sole Meunière on his mind - Mirabelle was THE place- both meals were fantastic, both w/ the shoestring fries. The restaurant maintains its French (but friendly!) ambiance.

This is by far one of the best restaurants I have ever had the pleasure of eating. We started going to this restaurant 28 years ago and have never been dissatisfied. Highly recommended.

Terrific service and delicious food and wine. My only mild complaint is that it's a bit pricey. But if you know that going in, you will have a wonderful time.

What a delightful evening! The service was attentive, friendly, and professional, and the food was delicious. I had a beet and chèvre salad, and my husband had escargot- both classic French dishes executed well. For our main courses he had duck with mirabelle plums, and I had the best ris-de-veau I’ve ever eaten. The ris-de-veau slices were cooked perfectly, and the Grenobloise sauce was delicate yet full of flavor. When I asked if the kitchen made its own stock to make the delicious sauces, she said the chef was proud of his stocks.
I thoroughly enjoyed dining in a restaurant that relied on classic techniques and excellent food ingredients. Foam and deconstructed dishes can be interesting and delicious, but the perfectly executed classic dishes were a treat that is getting harder to find.

Our meal was delicious, and the special treat was that our server, Danielle, had the most amazing voice and sang for another table, and then us. It was a special night, and truly delightful.

I love this place. The food is wonderful. Usually my friend and I eat early, about 5:30, and of course it's nearly empty when we arrive. By the time it starts to get crowded and noisy, we're ready to leave, which works out very well. Two days ago, because I made the reservation late to accommodate a friend from out of town, the earliest I could take was 7:45. When we arrived, it was crowded and noisy, but as we ate and talked and talked and ate, the noise receded, and the place gradually emptied out, so we were not rushed to leave. That worked out very well too!

The food is always just terrifically delicious. The service is unobtrusively efficient. The ambiance is very pleasant — no music, only one short outburst of loud, raucous talk and laughter among other patrons of the restaurant.

My wife and I had dinner at this quaint French restaurant. We both had duck which was moist inside, crispy outside with a nice plum sauce. The appetizers where great as well as the mango sorbet.
We will definitely go back.

This is a great restaurant in which to have a quiet conversation. The service is wonderful. The wines are excellent. The food is not as good as it used to be. The coquilles St. Jacques were drowned in cheese. This works for onion soup but not for seafood. Cheese should never be combined with seafood.

On Saturday, September 7, 2019, my wife and I had dinner there. It was excellent. The server was very good. The food was excellent. I had asparagus. My wife had the Portobello Mushrooms. We had Bouillabaisse. It came with a whole lobster. It was very rich. The portion was very big. We had a lemon tarte. It was very big. Next time, we will get the fish.

La Mirabelle is a cozy, friendly throwback to the many unassuming French cafes that once dotted Manhattan. Don’t come here if you’re looking for Lutece. Mirabelle is known for courteous service, solid French menu, good wine and cocktails. Lace curtains. Oil paintings on the walls plus photos of celebrities d’un certain age. A favorite neighborhood spot that offers a warm welcome to all.

Overall excellent. We Google quiet restaurants on Westside for some strange reason on a Monday night in the middle of the summer it was packed. Delighted for them but a little noisier than we wanted.

We go to La Mirabelle four or five times a year with friends, and we are always pleased.
The duck is crisp and cooked perfectly. The seafood is awesome, and the medallions
of tenderloin that we had on Thursday night, were perfect. This in the closest thing
to a Paris bistro in New York City,

We went with friends and were not disappointed. Danielle is the ultimate hostess - she does it all! Serving, Singing and socializing with the guests.
We enjoyed the food. The duck could have been crispier.
Looking forward to celebrating Bastille Day next year.

It's a nice neighborhood restaurant. Seems like most patrons are regular diners. The food was nice but I feel there are better French restaurants out there...I had the chicken liver with shallots and vinegar. I was disappointed too much vinegar. I also had the veal with sweetbreadcrumbs and capers it was nice the veal was super tender. My husband had the sole and he enjoyed it. The service was nice and attentive. This was my experience.

This very old standby...I've been dining there for over fifty years...is great for a pleasant, quiet get together with friends. The service is outstanding. My friend returned a full glass of wine because she just didn't like it and decided that she simply didn't want wine. NP. It may be time to lighten up the very traditional grand mere/bistro cooking just a tad. I still want liver and crepes and creme brulee but maybe less buttery sauces etc.

First time diner - very much what I expected. Classic French with low key family atmosphere. I mentioned that we would be on a leisurely pace and the service knew exactly what to do - never intrusive. Waitress sang a beautiful French song for another party at the end of the evening.

The service was attentive and genuine. The food preparation was exquisite and cooked to perfection. They have quite the wine list that offers great choices with any of the entrees on the menu. If you are looking for French dining that is easier on the pocketbook, this is one of the places to consider.
