Mirabelle is one of the grandest spaces in Washington, DC and has a very creative and imaginative menu where multiple ingredients populate each course. Mirabelle reminds of the creative cuisine you find from Chef Pierre Gagnaire in Paris. The cocktails are also outstanding, and the wine list is one of the best you will find in this area, and is very well managed.

Wonderful evening at Mirabelle with family from Maryland. We opted for the multi course tasting menu which was superb. Appetizers of Tomato whey, Dali’s shrimp, and bar bites ( oysters on the half shell on a bed of seaweed and fois gras tacos on a bed of warm pistachios) were just the perfect start. Then we were subsequently amazed by the fois gras faberge egg, razor clam with homemade tagliatelle pasta, and the scallop duet. Main courses included a delicious dish of veal with curry, porcelet in three presentations, and a lamb dish that was incredible with homemade petit dolmas. Not only was the food delicious, the presentations were creative and just stunning.
We had a spectacular evening together with food that made it all the more memorable. Thank you!

Wonderful dining! We came to enjoy a quiet dinner for two. My husband enjoyed an IPA beer and I enjoyed a lovely, creative non-alcoholic cocktail...It is really nice to be able to enjoy a cocktail (sans alcohol) that is not the usual carbonated soda water with a splash/or piece of citrus. We enjoyed the prix fixe dinner with Dali's shrimp, scallops, and the curry veal. Food was delicious and price a good value for fine dining.

Took my partner August 22nd for his birthday from the moment we entered we were greeted with a warm smile everything was FANTASTIC coming from hospitality over 34 years I knew what to expect and I must say you are doing things right. Kiddos to you and your team.

I was disappointed. Our server was wonderful. We loved the "cornucopia of salad" starter but the scallops were just not impressive. First it is served on a rather sloppy looking 'bed" of seaweed which was falling off the plate - even though it was topped with rocks (not the fancy, decorative kind), then two large shells and on top of each shell sat one scallop - for $30. I love a good meal and never quibble about prices but this was a joke. Every diner who ordered the scallops reacted the same way when served - a little shocked. Definitely not worth the money.
Ambiance was lovely.
I think I'd only return to this restaurant if I had a business lunch where money was no object and folk aren't really paying too much attention to the food.

Wonderful restaurant. Great food for very fair prices. Our second visit for lunch under the new/current chef and staff. Nice portions for appetizers and mains. Very inventive choices with perfect execution. Servers are very friendly, knowledgeable and professional—not stuffy. The chef came out both time we dined and explained one of his techniques personally. Can’t wait to try dinner and also wine dinners they plan to have.

I could not have been happier. Jordan reached out to offer to print a birthday menu for my best friend (as we were dining to celebrate her birthday) and the level of attentiveness to us from the moment we arrived to the moment we left was outstanding. The new squash blossom appetizer was incredible and all the other courses were excellent as well. I am looking forward to dining at Mirabelle again soon!

The Faberge egg--get it! The food here is a feast for both the eye and the palette. The flavors in the Dali Shrimp bring back memories of seafood from childhood along with a symphony of related and contrasting flavors. Every course was a winner.

We booked Mirabelle for a birthday celebration, and they had a "Happy Birthday" menu. Sweet. The food was outstanding, and the chef explained each dish and the contrasting/complimenting flavors. There was an unhappy toddler at the table next to us, but other than that this was a first rate dinner.

Although overall the experience was magical, we credit the ambience and the service more than the food. No doubt the food was creative but much of it lacked flavor. The lobster was creative in presentation but not special. The halibut lacked flavor though the dish was attractive. The amuse bouche and other offerings was a nice touch.

It was decent and the food was mostly tasty, but really overpriced for what you get. I was also given the wrong main course.

Mirabelle is a great choice for a special dinner. The food was creative and delicious and the wine pairings were excellent. The Faberge egg was a chocolate egg, filled with foie gras. It's decadent, beautiful, and wonderful. Mirabelle is a comfortable restaurant, where you're not sitting on top of your neighbors and can have good conversation. We'd like to go back in good weather and try the patio, too.

The atmosphere was delightful, and the service was spectacular. Kevin was our server and he not only patiently waited for over an hour while my guest and I caught up with each other, but he also made terrific suggestions for lunch. The food and drinks were fantastic. Definitely comfortable highly recommending Mirabelle.

Lunch at Mirabelle with a friend visiting from Europe, was a great pleasure. The menu is varied and sensibly priced—and completely delicious. We had a pasta with morel mushrooms and seasonal soft shell crabs—and both totally outstanding. We had a bottle of rose with our lunch, and it-too-was great—actually had body, depth and taste. Mirabelle—as they say in restaurant critic language-is worth a journey!

I loved the food and the ambiance.However,I think it’s pricy for the food you receive!I ordered the lobster which was delicious,but it consisted of 4
tiny portions which were really more like an appetizer!
The restaurant should serve larger main course portions!
Otherwise,an excellent restaurant with a chic vibe...
