Miramar Bistro combines the traditional French bistro with flair from Havana; from traditional Cuban sandwiches to steak frites, the menu is always fresh and seasonal. Service is friendly and thorough and the ambiance will take you back to 1920 Havana. The French doors open to the sidewalk patio and lend to al fresco dining both for lunch and dinner. Miramar also books parties and banquets up to 300 people.

Food was excellent prices were fair. Service was a little slow during lunch time. Restaurant was not crowded it was Valentine’s Day. I would definitely go back! It’s worth it.😊

My wife had the scallops, they were really good. I had the duck, it was cooked well, but I wish the sauce was a little thicker. Minor things in an overall great dining experience.

Love Miramar. Was there NYE and enjoyed everything about it.
Went tonight to celebrate my wife’s birthday with friends.
Had requested a quiet table so the four of us could talk.
Placed us between 2 large parties who were so loud we had to leave before finishing our coffee.
And the main room was much quieter. Should have been seated there.
Service spotty because of the big parties.

I went to Miramar before and after the holidays. The visit prior was good. The last visit was disappointing. The food was okay but the service was subpar for a restaurant of this caliber. Ground pepper was not provided for my salad or steak. Grated Parmesan was not offered for my pasta. Our ice teas were not refilled until just before we were ready to leave.

Overall the Miramar is outstanding, from the littlest details, like taking our coats and then keeping them by table number, so we had our coats delivered to us when we stood up to leave. The food and service are very good and worthy of a good tip.

Food was quite good. It is a very very loud restaurant and had trouble hearing and talking. We had a very warm welcome and they certainly had enough staff. We had to wait 10 minutes for a waiter to take our beverage order but after that he was quite attentive. I would have preferred charred brussell sprouts w my salmon vs mushrooms and zucchini. Next time I will ask. But not sure we will return due to the busyness of the place.

This was our first time to visit Miramar and my wife and I enjoyed it very much. The waiter answered our questions well and the entire wait staff made us feel very comfortable. The food was great, from the crab cake appetizer to the peppercorn steak, all nicely paired with affordable wines. We will be likely to return in the future.
