Food was excellent! Waiter was informative
Very attentive and friendly service. I like trying a sampling of dishes and was able to try/share a lot. Delicious half bottle of wine. Can't wait to return.
Great Israeli food! We wanted to find not your typical fare but close to the Barclay's Center. Great find! We all enjoyed our meal. The eggplant appetizer was fantastic! Service was great and very accommodating with my son in a wheelchair. Would definitely go back. Make a reservation!
My husband and I went to Miriam's before a concert at the Barclay Center. The food and service were superb. If only we lived in Brooklyn, we would definitely frequenting this restaurant.
we came to miriam's for a pre-concert dinner. The food was fabulous. Our waiter daniel was great. He made many recommendations and really took care of us. i can't wait to come back!!
Our table was ready on time. The wait staff was attentive and, when I requested advice, guided me to the couscous, which was absolutely delish. I enjoyed the sauvignon blanc. The good service continued throughout the meal. My dinner companions enjoyed their selections as well. The only thing slightly disappointing was the dessert. The baklava was not the traditional Greek style I prefer and the homemade ice cream was not as creamy as I had hoped. I would definitely go back!
Came here with friends. Food and service were great. A bit pricey but otherwise had a great time.
Delicious try the couscous! We also had cauliflower, meatballs, bourekas, and the most amazing halva mousse!
Super nice restaurant with great food. Very friendly waiter and they were quick with our service!
We were visiting Brooklyn and wanted a neighborhood restaurant. We were not disappointed. Delicious food, good service. It was a bit crowded and noisy, but fun atmosphere. We loved our dishes of couscous and grilled chicken. Also, they were careful with some food allergies.
Great time great service outstanding food . I had a surprise party at Miriam. This place is amazing.
Still a reliable place to get a table at the last minute on a Friday or Saturday night, but sadly the food and service have gone downhill. At the same time, prices have gone up! This used to be in my rotation, but I won't be going back.
Was visiting Israel a few months ago and had some wonderful food in Tel Aviv, so when we searched for a restaurant for a pre concert meal and found Miriam near the Barclay, we were eager to try it. Very glad we did. The location was perfect. The space was the perfect combination of Brooklyn and Tel Aviv. The food was as tasty as anything we had in Israel. And the staff was friendly and efficient--getting us served with plenty of time to make the show. We were there on New Years Eve, so the menu was prix fixed and limited, but we plan to return on a non-holiday to explore the full menu.
Loved the personal service and authentic, fresh food.
Love this unique Israeli North African menu! Meze is outstanding as is the wine list.
I enjoyed Miriam thoroughly, and so did everyone else in my group. There were nine of us there for dinner on a Friday evening. The table was all ready to go when I arrived, which was very pleasing to see. We aslo had plenty of space, due to the fact that the table was somewhat separate from the rest of the restaurant. We ordered some meze, which included falafel, hummus and roasted cauliflower. They were all excellent. The only thing that irked me a bit was that one piece of pita bread was served with the hummus. They eventually brought more, but I had to take points away for this error. It seemed as if there was a pita bread shortage that night, for whatever reason. I also feel that the wait staff could have come to the table a bit more often to check on us. Overall they did a pretty good job, but for a party of that size, we should have been more of a priority. Our entress were delicious as well, and we stayed there for most of the evening, and were not rushed out. I would definitely go back, and look forward to doing so.
Miriam's is a good place for Middle Eastern and Israeli cuisine. We went for a late night dinner, and ended up sharing a lot of appetizers, with a glass of wine. They were all very good. Service was competent and friendly. It was super convenient, as we were coming from an event at the Barclays arena. Just a few blocks away.
Great food, always a nice place for a meal. Really like all the vegetarian options. Excellent couscous.
Found this on a search for "best restaraurants near the Barclays." It did not disappoint. Warm greeting and table ready at time of reservation. Our server was AMAZING. Started with 3 Mezes (shrimp, goat cheese crostini and burekas) and we each had the cous cous. Portions were perfect. Very reasonably priced. We were not rushed. 5 minute walk to the Barclays. We were told they also do brunch. It was a little loud, but that did not detract from our amazing meal.
We had an excellent experience! The food was wonderful; the dishes were excellently prepared, often with an unusual twist. There was a great assortment of small plates (metze) as well as larger entrees, so we felt as if we had had a great variety of tastes when we were done. The service was communal, and everyone was very attentive. We lacked for nothing. We will certainly go back, and it is not even our neighborhood.
