This was our 2nd time at this restaurant. The food and service were terrific and they made the restaurant safe (relative to Covid safety measures). We will be back!

Outstanding food and service, as always. Perfectly-prepared dishes including scallops, ahi tuna, pasta, French onion soup. Our preferred outdoor seating was pleasant and comfortable.

Been going to Miramar since they opened so for many many years. Took a girlfriend for her birthday lunch on a Saturday late morning. Very few people there. Sat at the bar and received very poor service. After 20 minutes we moved our own dishes over and had to flag the bartender/waiter down anytime we needed anything. One of the waiters came to us 15 minutes after we had finished our meal to ask how everything tasted and then wished us a bon appétit. This is the third time we’ve been in the last five months and have had equally disappointed service. The food, thank goodness, was excellent but not worth or offset by the poor service. I am supposed to go back next Sunday for another birthday dinner but will be canceling my reservation. Very disappointed.

Wonderful dinner outside enjoying the Highwood atmosphere. We are regulars so I had the fabulous crepes & hubby had the veal chop. Excellent mussels to begin with along with 2 delicious cocktails. We felt like we were in southern Florida

With the rain they had us distanced inside by a window in the large back room. It was perfect for our chatty friend visit. The mussels were delicious and the duck confit salad is always outstanding. Good wine and prosecco capped a perfect meal. Wish they would open a Scottsdale location so I don’t miss them so much when I go home.

Sat inside and in corner table. Constant flies as windows/doors remained open. Attentiveness of wait staff was only ok especially considering reservation was at 4:30 on a Saturday and still fairly sparse. Wine was fair. Food was good but not great. Overall did not meet high expectations as advertised by Open Table.

A delicious lunch and the great feel of a sidewalk cafe with an awning shade overhead. The traffic is moderately audible but not a real problem. The splits of prosecco and a french style spinach, mushroom and goat cheese omelet enhanced a perfect visit with friends. The staff is wonderful too. It’s always been a favorite and I give them great credit for keeping a larger and varied menu in spite of the times. I could eat there five times in a week and still have more to choose from unlike the limited Covid menus at other places.

We had the Worst waiter! He was not helpful when asked about some appetizers. We got our meal rather quickly but food was not good! I have been their multiple times and loved it& never had a complaint.. Waiter never asked how are meal was either.. Our bread basket has 4 small pieces of bread& never hot refreshed as it usually does.. we did get dessert& that was passable. Don’t know if I will ever go back based on last Sat. Nights service!
