    I am a regular patron. I have brought my friends here once before and they really had a good time. So we all decided to return last night. Two of my friends left with massive headaches due to the extreme noise in the back room where we were seated. A group of diners were so LOUD that we had to scream at each other to be able to converse. We can’t scream from 6:15 to 8:45 pm. Very frustrating evening. The food and service were terrific but we also wanted to be able to converse which was impossible last night. We have decided to go somewhere else for our next get together.

    In our top 5 experiences that we can remember and we dine out a lot. We were there on a Sunday night so not crazy busy but the food and service felt like it was a Saturday. Absolutely fantastic! This is a 40min drive for us from the city. Our friends thought we were out of our minds to drive them to the suburbs for French food. They too were sold and will definitely be back.

    Casually elegant dining room — rich, red leather upholstered chairs and booths, wood paneled and candle lit. Genuinely friendly and attentive service. French food, excellently prepared and reasonably priced. The Dover Sole in brown butter, lemon and caper sauce was delicious.

    The food was offal. We celebrated my girlfriend's birthday. We had the scallops and Dover sole file; the fish was overcooked, and the scallops oversalted. The desserts were a disappointment too. The waiter was arrogant. The ambiance was not impressive at all, it was very dated and old. It requires significant renovation—no reason to go back. I would not recommend this place.

    I have been to Miramar many times. The quality of the service seems to have declined. My most recent visit, they were not busy. But drinks were very slow to be delivered (they completely forgot one round all together). The food was good but not great. The cocktails will not well made. Disappointing in comparison to times past.

    Waiter nice but inattentive. I requested a grilled onion for my burger instead of the raw onion. $1.00 up charge! Wasn’t told. Husbands salmon was meh. Mom had Dover sole. Was just ok. Dinner for 3 including drinks over $300. Overall not worth it.

    One of our north shore favorites, although Thursday night is always crowded and especially at the holiday season. Had to shout to be heard, so must remember to always come mid afternoon. So glad they serve throughout the day, 11-10.

    Skate was just ok. Not very flavorful and the veggies with it did not work. Definitely needed salt. Maybe the issue was kale and the leafy veggies, but too much and did not balance well with the delicate fish. Scallops good but almost too rich in a lot of butter. Escargot was perfect! Corn soup also delicious.

    Miramar was lovely. The service, from the valet outside to the welcome at the door to the charming and attentive wait staff was simply the best. Each dish was prepared beautifully. We enjoyed escargot, pate and the bistro salad before our entrees of spinach crepes and skate. The bread was excellent and we used it to mop up some of the rich flavors. We had some fine wine and tasty toffee for dessert. Overall this was a wonderful evening. It was our second time at Miramar but it will not be our last. A terrific authentic French bistro.

    The service at Miramar is an experience you would expect as a much more expensive restaurant. They anticipated our needs before we even knew we had them. Chivalry. Helping with our coats and completely attentive. A great evening and would highly recommend. Warm, inviting and the food was excellent.
