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 took my girlfriend on a date here. Great food (big fan of the Mole sauce), I love that it overlooks Klyde Warren Park. Miriam (the owner) is INCREDIBLY personable. Highly recommend.

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.

Miriam Cocina never disappoints. The quality of the food and the sizable number of offerings on the menu are very impressive. We will be back over and over again. Their Queso Verde is a must have. I am a fan of Mole and Miriam's is superior. The Chili Relleno is another favorite.

Brunch was really good. Nice change from the usual Tex-Mex fare. Bloody Mary was too peppery...need less pepper and more horseradish. Service was great. Will try again sometime for lunch or dinner.

What a fantastic place to go. The atmosphere was absolutely fantastic. We were greeted by the owner Miriam who btw is a fantastic hard working woman. Sat quickly and served quickly. He food was fabulous, salsa flight queso and ceviche for apps. Enchiladas and steak for dinner were very tasty especially the skirt steak.
The staff was very attentive and helpful. The meal was reasonable in regards to price.
The most impressive thing I found was how active Miriam was with customers and she interacted with everyone. She told us her story and some of her struggles in order to keep her customers happy.
I would recommend this place over and over again.

We were in Dallas visiting, and wanted something other than the Tex-Mex we usually go for when in town. This was a delightful experience. I would describe it as more broadly Latin-American cuisine. Everything we tried was spot on. Service was great. This is a very well-run establishment. Kudos to the owner/management.

This was our first time at Miriam Cocina Latina and it exceeded our expectations by far! So much so, we decided to return for brunch the next day! The food is delicious, well portioned. The music was great. Miriam met us at the door and was attentive to our table the whole evening. The staff is superb. Everyone makes you feel welcome. We will definitely make the 3 hour drive to dine here again. One of my favorite places!! I have already let my family and friends know about this place.

Beautiful restaurant, wonderful service, great value. We had a lovely evening at this restaurant and would happily return. The salsa verde served with the chips was one of my favorite flavors of the evening. The 3 drinks we tried were perfectly crafted, unique and delicious. We sampled the 3 empanadas which were plated beautifully and were the best I’ve had due to the crunchy, thinner pastry used that contributed to them being lighter and a perfect starter. Based on recommendations from the waiter we ordered the brisket enchiladas and the mahi mahi tacos. My husband loved the tacos. I thought the enchiladas were good but not great. The tortillas were very thick and hard to cut through and the brisket, while cooked beautifully, did not have much flavor. The black beans were very good and even better with the salsa verde. I do feel however it was a terrific value when you consider the price. Next time I’ll try the salmon which was also recommended. The coconut flan was a showstopper. It had a very smooth silky texture and the toasted coconut added a great crunch. Served with a little pitcher of coconut sauce it was memorable. We’d come back just for that and the very gracious service.
