Ate here before a concert at the American Airlines Center. Staff was great! Loved our food too - we got the mahi mahi (soooo good) and brisket tacos. It’s not inexpensive (but not super pricey), but I would definitely eat here again!

We had the Mahi Mahi tacos and Santo Domingo salad and both were delicious. The atmosphere is great, and there isn't a bad seat in the house. We will be back!

We had lunch on Labor Day prior to visiting The Van Gogh exhibit. Food was AMAZING and drinks were fabulous. Wish we lived closer so we could make this a regular spot!

HORRIBLE experience! I sent my food back because I didn’t like it. I order four tacos. I ate one (after wiping the hot sauce off of it and added queso instead) took one bite out of two others and didn’t even touch the third. I asked for empanadas instead. I was approached, at our table, by who I thought was the manager but was really the owner in such a nasty way! She told me that I had my plate for half an hour (which I did not). I told her I did not like the tacos and ordered something else instead.

She told me that I was not going to like the empanadas since I didn’t like the tacos (which are two different things) She pretty much argued with me that I wouldn’t like it. So I said well bring me the taco that I ate but add queso because I didn’t like the sauce that was on it. She said she’d have to charge me for it. At this point I was over it and lost my appetite. She brought me the DRY tacos back to the table and stared at me the whole time she was at the hostess stand. It was embarrassing and uncomfortable because others were looking at us as this was going on.

It was never a “I’m sorry you didn’t like it. What can I do to make it better for you” or anything like that! It was as if it was MY fault that I didn’t like the meal.

The waiter never came back to check on us after that until it was time for the check.

As I was leaving I told her that I did not appreciate how she approached me and I would not be returning. She said “aww okay”

We gave them no reason to be treated that way. My husband and I were on a date in our own little world and she AND the waiter ruined our first and last experience at this restaurant.

Great food and service. Skinny Margaritas are best in Dallas. Staff is terrific. Our waiter, Eddie, is very friendly, and the service is very attentive.

Perfect for brunch. Miriam (herself) is a sweet, fun owner that greats you with a welcoming smile and attitude. I love this place.

When we got our salads they were very good. However, the food was slow coming out of the kitchen. We were a table of 4 who all ordered salads. I could see that the waiters were standing near the pickup station waiting for orders to come out. I understand that it's hard to find staff these days but if you're on a time budget, it can be problematic.

Came here with high expectations from all the reviews. I had the shrimp tacos and my friend had the lobster tacos. My shrimp tacos were kind of bland, mostly due to the lightly seasoned shrimp and the black beans that came along with it had no flavor whatsoever. My friends lobster tacos seemed alright according to her but she wasn’t a fan of the quinoa rice mix, that barely had a sprinkling of quinoa in it. For drinks, I got the passion fruit margarita which was a-ok and my friend got the mandarin margarita which was unusual and had a weird aftertaste. For dessert, we had the plantains which were good with a nice creamy horchata like dipping sauce. Ambience and decor were great and it was nice seeing the owner.

Once again the service was not very good at Miriam Cocina. This is at least the fourth time we have come to this restaurant for lunch because we work in Uptown Dallas and the service needs improvement, particularly when paying your bill. We literally felt like we had to beg to pay our bill! I would probably recommend this restaurant to family and friends because the food is good, but I would warn them about the service! The bad service is not a one time thing because it has happened the last several times we have gone here for lunch!

Food was excellent - well prepared and delicious. Service was terrific. Only problem is the noise level, which is out of control. No way for four people to have a conversation—at least one person will not be able to hear the others. That was the same issue when it was Lark on the Park — we loved the food and ambiance, but couldn’t take the noise. Sad to say,we probably won’t go back.

I’m one of those people who are on a mission to try as many restaurants as possible. The location is awesome and convenient to Klyde Warren Park. Parking is Complementary Valet. The food was flavorful and the drinks were decent but different (I couldn’t taste the alcohol unfortunately). Would I return?? Yes:)

We visited Miriam’s Cocina on our last day of vacation and may have saved the best for last! We were on our way out of town after a very fun tour of Dallas and did brunch at Miriam’s, and what a treat it was! We left very satisfied with the food, and also enjoyed visiting with the staff, including Miriam herself, who was so gracious! It is right across from Klyde Warren Park and valet parking is free and convenient. We loved the green queso and greatly enjoyed the ultra fresh drinks, which were so delicious and invigorating. This is a great Dallas establishment and we highly, highly recommend it, especially if you are looking for authentic Latin food.
