I've been here many times since the restaurant opened, and I have never been disappointed until last night. Service was slow and food was hot but the fish dishes were overcooked. We had a hard time getting our server's attention, and when we did get him to the table, he neglected to remove plates that were obviously finished. In the restaurant's defense, it was Christmas Eve and the A team might not have been on duty. I'm not giving up on the place, because my experience seems to have been a rare exception. If it happens again, I won't be back.

We went for a nice evening but the tables were extremely close to one another. We ended up getting appetizers and leaving because it felt unsafe (tables were less than 2 feet from each other). We saw multiple people brought to these tables who felt the same way. I hope they rethink their covid procedures.

Delicious salads and soup. Wonderful omelet. Service was a little spotty, but probably due to a huge party in the room. That’s also why it was very noisy.

Miramar is so magical that we travel an hour and half to eat here. Our children eat escargot and chicken tenders while we enjoy the fabulous drinks and the rest of the delicious menu. We have never been disappointed and have been coming here more than 10 years.

I believe this to be the best and most consistent restaurant in the Northern Suburbs. I had the lamb chop and they were hands down best I ever had. Thick cut cooked perfectly and the sauce was great. Their French Onion Soup is the best I have had in the Chicago area.
Service is always enjoyable. Prompt but not rushed.
My wife and I look forward to our next meal.

We loved the warm décor and friendly service. The noise level was high but was mostly due to one large party gathering. The food was great. I really enjoyed the onion soup and roasted scallops and the steaks were cooked to perfection as ordered. Everyone enjoyed the Creme Brule! We are hoping to return soon.
