Enjoyed the place overall. Was our second time there. Slightly disappointed that the vegetarian options were limited. A menu item from our previous visit was gone.

Loved visiting with an out-of-town friend in the bar area. Wait staff seemed a little breathless -- we were having a SLOW visit, so needed to turn him away several times.

Mira’s delivers a really unique Spanish/South American experience with a wide variety of dishes that are difficult to come by in Cincinnati. The wine list is creative and offers wonderful opportunities to try new wines from arguably some of the best value wine regions in the world. The fact that many of the staff have been there through the last 2 years is testimony to Jose’s good management and that everyone feels valued.

This place was amazing! It was my first time with my boyfriend and we celebrated our 1 year anniversary. They gave us anniversary champagne and offered a cupcake as well but we were soooo full. Our server Alex (I believe that was here name. She had blonde hair and was super sweet) was amazing. She recommended all of the best stuff and was knowledgeable about everything. We ordered a bottle of wine, the clams, charcuterie, and ceviche. All were OUTSTANDING. We will absolutely be back!!

What a great experience! This was well worth the journey from the northern suburbs for some of best tapas we have ever had. Excellent service, good wine selection, and great atmosphere. Wife and I shared the paella which matched in quality paella dishes we ate in Spain. Defiantly a return place for us.

The Food was great! I appreciated that they told us straight away that if we wanted the paella then we would want to put it in since it takes 45 minutes. We went with the Waygu special this time. Will do paella next time! Really wonderful experience!

Food was pretty good but not as fabulous as it should have been for the prices . My main complaint was our server told it was a Tapas style restaurant so order a number of small plates. Obvious question: how many? He said 2 - 3 per person but probably 3. My wife and I ordered 6 plates. Way way way too much food!...and we were hungry and have normal to big appetites.

At up to $19 per plate that was a big money mistake. I took some of it out of the tip, but it was still very expensive. Four plates between us (two each) would have been more than enough, and three may have been fine. With several beers and a glass of wine, the bill was $150. Parking was $7 across the street.
