    Best French Onion Soup. Also there are so few restaurants that are open for lunch. This is a great choice if in HP or Highwood. Food and service never disappoint!

    Miramar is an excellent restaurant which caters to a varied clientele. The cuisine is delicious, nicely presented, and of high quality. Service is attentive, efficient, and friendly. We especially enjoy the seafood. At peak times the restaurant can be very busy and quite noisy, but the quality of the food and staff outweigh that aspect. We recommend it highly.

    Food was VERY overpriced! We were recently in Paris and wanted to have more French food so we tried Miramar. Everything was delicious … just twice as much $$ as what we paid overseas.

    It would have been 5 stars, but we were sat in the back room & our very favorite table in front happened to be vacant upon our arrival and when we were finished. Otherwise everything was very good. Excellent service.

    We have a couple with whom we have gone to Miramar many, many times and have always enjoyed it there! The food is fabulous, and the service excellent. I was early and sat at the bar and thoroughly enjoyed chatting with the bartender until the rest of our group arrived. I had the French onion soup and a salad, as did others, and we loved it.

    Crowded at lunch. Portions were good sized. Omelette of the day was almost $20! We were celebrating a birthday and had to mention it more than once. Person clearing the table was efficient but didn’t understand personal space. Reached over me while I was eating and the others throughout the meal. A bit unnerving and a bit too close for comfort .Beverage refills were prompt.

    The food is great usually, but the salmon was bland even with sauce. Linguine and clams were the best and the brown bread is great. Love the back room, you can talk. Front room gets very loud!

    Venerable French bistro in diners’ paradise Highwood IL. Great food and service, good value for price. Try the mussels! And onion soup! And tiramisu! Parking is difficult especially at night. Tile walls and floors mean a high noise level even with a less-than-full dining room. Attentive professional service. Summertime outdoor dining a plus. There are good reasons why Miramar has stayed in business - go find out for yourself!
