I've been here twice and the service was extremely slow both times. I sat for 30 minutes before a waiter came to take my order. The food took forever (about 40 minutes for appetizers) and it was cold! They did accommodate by bringing fresher food for free but even that wasn't good.

This is a gorgeous restaurant but the service just doesn't live up to the ambiance.

The atmosphere was really cool, the food was pretty good but the waitress sucked, she was awful and we were 1 of 3 tables she had so I don’t know why our service was so bad. It was also my boyfriends birthday and when we told her for dessert she had an attitude and complained to another server about It. I’d give this place 1 more chance

The food was absolutely amazing. We were a little disappointed because we ordered the lasagna and spaghetti, and the waitress failed to mention how long the lasagna would take to bake. I was finished with my hand cut spaghetti by the time our lasagna came to the table. I also received my dessert before our dinner plates were removed.... Just little things like this really make or break a dining experience.

The food was mediocre but the worst part was truly the service. Hipster Italian place with terrible customer service and flavorless food (forces add a ton of paran to everything).

Nice looking restaurant and good service. 3 of our 4 dinners were good. One however was not good, Octopus was burned, not grilled, and much too spicy for my taste. Peaches(,in the peaches/burrata dish) we're not ripe.

The food was good, although they skimped on the protein and loaded up on the sides. I love the squid ink and lobster pasta, but all others were just okay. The part that gets me is how it takes over 45 minutes for food to come out. We ran out of water several times and the waitress took a while to notice. We stayed for almost 2 hours, and not by choice.

A very eclectic menu. Had the beet salad. Wow.....pistachios, avocados, and a great dressing. I ordered the NY steak. A very generous serving and cooked to medium rare perfection. Loved the brussel sprouts and cauliflower combination. Too full for dessert, but the choices looked heavenly. Will definitely return.

The food was awful! And very expensive for bad food. I had the sea bass which was severely over cooked and ruined, I could not eat it. We also ordered the squid ink pasta, it was flavorless! And the pizza was soggy in the middle! The white wine pour was small. We asked for salt on the margarita, it came without salt. The only good thing was the spicy octopus and the charcuterie ( hard to ruin that one). All of this was $300!
The service was good, but the chef should be embarrassed to send out such bad plates. And this was at 5:45 pm on a Saturday, place was almost empty. We went early because we had opera tickets. We are never going back.

This restaurant is gorgeous outside and in. They have a wonderful whiskey selection and somolier on staff to help you order. BUT they were playing the strangest 80s music that didn’t match the vibe at all...for example the “I’m your Venus your desire” song. (Doesn’t that just remind everyone of shaving anyways?). Our waitress said everything was “really good” and wasn’t super informed. The menu was underwhelming and confused. The rigatoni and octopus were good, but many other items were just meh. My two cents - go for the alcohol and maybe a few small plates.

The appetizers, pasta dishes and dessert were very good, especially the octopus dish. The meat dishes were average. The design and decor of the restaurant was cool. The downstairs bar and secret vault room is worth checking out. I imagine it'd be a nice space to throw a small intimate party with friends (dark lit ambience). Bar tenders downstairs were very nice and friendly. The staff were all very nice and courteous. We had RSVP's for Saturday night for 5:30 pm. We were practically the only ones there and for some reason they would only seat us at the two tables right behind the receptionist/ front door. We asked if we could take any of the empty tables of booth further into the restaurant and were declined the request. We left at close to 7 pm, and at that point, the restaurant only had 2-3 other tables occupied. Not sure why they wouldn't give us better seating considering that the restaurant was 80% empty the entire time we were there. Regardless, the food was great and the staff were nice.

The evening was going well until we were served our actual dinner. It’s all came out at various times and I ask to speak to the manager. After the last meal at a table for six was delivered 15 minutes after the previous meal the waitress asked if I’d still like to see the manager. Classy place that isn’t so classy. The alleged manager never even came over to see how we were doing and it was obvious he did not want to be there. I travel a lot to L.A. and will not be able to recommend this place.

It was a group of 6 and it was all our first time. We all enjoyed the food, some obviously more than the others. Purchased about every entre so we could all try a little bit of everything on the menu. The sea bass, herb lamb, chicken, & ribs were great! We all definitely loved the shrimp and polenta! I would come back.

The Caesar salad was the best. I would go back solely for this salad. I was bummed out about the 'Steak & Frites'. The fries were great but the steak was bland. I don't think i even tasted salt or pepper but I'll definitely go back for the Caesar salad and fries.

For the price and hype, the food and service weren't very good. Took forever to bring the food, which the server aknowledged, but when I asked for bread to tide us over, he was going to charge us.
The octopus and corn appetizers came out lukewarm & dry, as did the fish entree. When the fish went back half-eaten ( at $30) we told him why. We then ordered coffees and dessert, and when the bill came the restaurant did nothing to compensate for the delays and other problems. Not good. To finish off, the next day OpenTable wrote to ask why we were a no-show. Come ON. Not going back.

We did not experience anything. The establishment was close when we got there. Open Table should know when the restaurant is not operating on a certain day and not send confirmation of the reservation. We should’ve just called instead of using this app. We were so disappointed.

Restaurant about 25% full when we arrived. Waited 10 minutes for a server to bring water/inquire about drink order. Restaurant bills itself as “family style”. Owners need to go to Carmine’s in NYC to see what size constitutes a “family style” portion. Food was good (not great) but nowhere near good enough to overcome poor service and small portion sizes.

We were out celebrating 3 different birthdays and Miro was the perfect spot. The service was outstanding and the food, simply delicious. Our dishes were brought out promptly and each one was mouthwatering- we finished each plate almost embarrassingly quickly and looked forward to the next - and were not disappointed. We plan to come back for the next birthday, anniversary or whatever the next occasion is - we cannot wait!

Food was superb. We started with a bread focaccia from the appetizer menu which was served with olive oil for dipping and butter dressed with black gourmet sea salt. Delicious! For our entrees we shared a Caesar Salad (very fresh, the dressing was tasting authentic and very anchoviesy!), Spaghetti Bolognese and Rigatoni with mushrooms and truffles. Both dishes were so tasty! Even our 3 year old loved Spaghetti!

For dessert we ordered Nutella Swirl ice cream which was served with a lace cookie on top, crunchy crumbs (tasted like Frosted Flakes cereal of some sort but better!) and fresh strawberries. It was amazing!!! We also tried a Nutella Tiramisu. It was definitely a unique take on a tiramisu but it was good. It was very chocolatey, liquor and coffee flavored.

I would greatly recommend this place! The decor is also spectacular!!! Perfect place for a date or a business dinner. It even worked for us with our two kids (3 and 8) even though this is really not a place for kids but we made it work and were able to find things on the menu for them to eat 😊
