So bummed over this meal. We had an AMAZING meal there last month and loved it so much we cancelled our reservations at Plume to return and celebrate our 20th anniversary. The whole experience was a let down. Service was clumsy, slow and impersonal. Food was good, not great. Greasy, not well seasoned and just nothing special. The absence of an attentive waiter made it difficult to even address it properly with the kitchen. Drinks were definitely made by the B-team - Master Mixologist Zach was not in the house. We had hoped a quiet table and an acknowledgement of our special celebration (as noted in the res) would be appropriate. Alas, no mention and a table right in the middle of the restaurant with a group of overly loud diners ruining the ambience for all. Very, very disappointed.

We have been here twice before and loved it. The good this time was very disappointing, out of 6 dishes, only two were good. Usually the flavors are amazing, this time the flavor was simply “lots of salt.” I don’t know if we will return which is sad since we really enjoyed our first two visits.

Me and my wife were the only African Americans in the restaurant. It took two hours to get one course, when a couple who entered an hour after us had their third course. I have never experienced such overt racism in all my experiences with fine dining.

Meh- it was a not so much for the price- too salty and fatty- no evidence of farm to table freshness- all the food was cloaked in overly rice sauces or deep fried. My sister did like the venison which she said was delicious.

We were disappointed to learn that the new fall menu doesn’t include several of the items from the previous menu that we liked very much please consider bringing back the lobster cooked for ways and the chocolate covered pate, just for starters.

I was in D.C. for my son’s eighth grade trip and wanted him to have a great culinary experience. The Mirabelle did not disappoint. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was upscale but not stuffy.

Outstanding restaurant with fantastic service and food! What a last minute surprise! The Smokey Cobb salad was delicious with a unique flavor profile. The salmon and truffle risotto were equally fabulous. Just wish I had more beets and red cabbage on the plate with the salmon. The pre appetizer and pre dessert palate cleansers were perfect to prepare for flavors and senses. The dessert - yum! The fig newton dessert was one of the best I’ve had. The waiter recommended a marvelous wine as well. No complaints and worth the experience!

What a wonderful meal! The service attentive, each course expertly prepared and served, inventive dishes that were fun in presentation and complex in flavor. The lamb belly was reminiscent of burnt ends...but only in every good way possible. The scallops crisp, yet tender; the beef tartare insanely delicious! The filet was perfectly cooked. Our table was in a noisy space, but the attentive service by bar lead Zach and team more than made up for any perceived shortcomings. A great meal, reasonable prices and great service.

I had requested a table in a quieter area which was provided. The server was very patient as we spent 20 minutes before even looking at the menu. Another server came and offered suggestions, one of which we followed. The French style flat bread was outstanding and the steak tartare was perfectly seasoned to my liking, a little spicy. My client had a salad with salmon and the presentation was beautiful. We had asked to take half the flat bread home and they gave it to us as we exited. Great food exceptional service, look forward to my next visit.

The quality of service, ambiance and artistry of food are unique and worth visiting for. Ieach server paid great attention to detail. Drinks were sensational. Best bef tartare I ever had. Incredible coconut gelato. Lamb course was beautiful, but lamb was a bit tough and small portion. Expensive, but worth it for the experience. I will return.

One of my favorite. Understated but elegant. Comfortable with nicely calibrated French music and attentive service. Probably the best steak tartar o have ever had and innovative gnocchi. Good bar and cocktails to top. Highly recommended.

Took family of 4 for a Saturday night dinner. We enjoyed the 5 course Tasting Menu with the Wine Pairings. We had a super time! First, Jean-Paul and the entire staff were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the food immensely, as the presentation and the tastes were excellent. Wine pairings spot on. Truthfully, don't eat in this style often and therefore my giving you a restaurant to restaurant comparison would be useless. Further, if you haven't done fine French dining in this manner, you should be aware that this is as much about the experience of "dining" with complex tastes.... If that isn't your gig... best to stay in the fancy steakhouse lane. Would definitely recommend. Thanks to the staff of Mirabelle for a memorable evening.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and Mirabella made it extra special. They had Happy Anniversary printed on the menu, and they treated us to two delicious desserts. The sautéed halibut was delicious and my husband enjoyed the lamb. I highly recommend this very special restaurant where you are treated like a Queen and King.

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.

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.
