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.

Great food, ambience. They graciously split shared ditches in the kitchen at no charge. Greeted warmly by owner.

Second time at the restaurant and it did not disappoint. From the minute you walk in you feel welcomed. Love the ambience. Service was fantastic. Food was wonderful. Had the scallops with oyster mushrooms that was cooked to perfection. The profiteroles was so good
Would recommend going to this restaurant. You won’t be disappointed.

Food; muscles, side dishes were over-cooked. Our waiter was great at the beginning, then the place got busier and he seemed to forget about us. Ambience was perfect and most food items were very good!

Miramar is my husband's favorite restaurant. We frequent it for date nights or dinners with friends. It's got great food, a great bartender, and a wonderful ambiance. Highly recommend!

The table a joke. The table was a round no more than2 ft in diameter stuck in a back corner. The place settings so close they overlapped so the cutlery from one setting was overlaid next to the other . We had to place the menus on the seats because there was no room. A candle, water glasses, 2 drinks glasses, a bread basket and two bread plates with cutlery and menus on a 2 ft round table. Ridiculous. Noisy, loud. So many other choices in the area. . Don’t waste your money. Well known but wayyyy overrated. Haven’t been there for a while and now I know why I don’t go.

This is just a place I flat-out like. The food is good, but beyond that, it excels in ambiance, attentive service, and a great Hemingway daiquiri. We decided to go there recently to celebrate an anniversary, and it was an excellent choice. Not fancy, but sophisticated with a great French-Cuban vibe.

We've come for several Easter brunches over the years. Didn't seem the buffet table was as bounteous as it has been in the past.
We enjoyed our mimosas and bloodies, but wow, had no idea of the price. Will probably skip those next time. Didn't notice drink price was posted anywhere.

It was a lovely little spot and service was good. For the price the buffet could have been more robust. Very expensive Sunday buffet but we may try again for lunch or diner

I enjoy this restaurant but would really like to see a little more space inbetween the tables. You are literally sitting NEXT to the table next to you. There is no sense of privacy.

A long-standing fixture in Highwood that improves with age. Menu is limited because preparations are innovative and unusual. But always beautifully done and presented well.

Went to Miramar for the oyster festival. We were presented with a dozen oysters each, each oyster from a different location. Six were from the east coast and six were from the west coast. Outstanding! Then had the macaroni and cheese. It was very cheesy and delicious. Service was superb. An all around excellent experience.

We have visited Miramar many times and found the food VERY good. This time, the Dover sole was very disappointing. Over sauced and very salty. Service was nice. We noted that a birthday was being celebrated. But none of the wait-staff noticed.

Very disappointing food, based on Gabriels original place and especially based on the menu prices. Staff worked reasonably hard but didn’t know the menu and there were meaningful gaps in service. All in all a pretty disappointing experience and I would not recommend this place compared to multiple other options in the area.
