Excellent Classic French Bistro Cuisine – If you are occasionally nostalgic for the days when there was no such thing as fusion cuisine, as I am, this is the place for you. We had an excellent meal of their specialty, duck, and soft-shelled crab. We had a charming and efficient young French waitress. But I specifically want to mention the kindness of Madame who held our reservation on a Saturday night, when we called and explained that we had been sitting in traffic at the George Washington Bridge for over an hour. It had been such an awful day that I almost teared up when she said that she would hold our table until we arrived, whenever that was. I haven't lived in New York for many years, but she made me love it all over again!
Hidden Treasure – Real French food done very well. Wait staff very professional. Wine list good, not large, but very reasonably priced.
Warm staff. simple but well-executed country French cuisine. – A friend introduced my husband and I to this place and I've always had consistently good food and service here. They even sold me on the pate which is delicious( I am not usually very fond of pate). The wine list is very good as well. It is a great warm, relaxed and informal place to take family and friends. The restaurant is good for large groups as they have upstairs seating.
The real french cuisine – This place is very low key, I have walked by it countless times without noticing it, but once you eat there that all changes- you remember the place for good.
This is a real french place where the staff is French. The food is excellent and the wine selection even greater. The price is very right for what you get.
The ambiance is quite unique and the place gets crowded earlier, because of the elderly clientel that attends the restaurant. Everyone has a place in the restaurant and you can find seeting just right for you.
Very french... – The food at La Mirabelle is excellent but the atmosphere made me uncomfortable. It is a bit stuffy and pretentious. Many of the diners were very formally dressed, while the restaurant looks and feels like someone's extra-large living room. The waitress took forever to bring us our cheque...
For those who like this scene, go ahead. Otherwise, don't bother.
a waste of time and money – visiting this establishment on a sunday night - maybe it was the chefs night off starters mediocre salad and overcooked chicken livers followed by beef borgigenon that tasted out of a tin topped with peas and onions and monkfish made of rubber and tasteless desserts that were preprapared from the
If this is the best they can do dont bother
Great place – This is a GREAT place and I can't believe I didn't come to Mirabelle sooner. The food is to die for. I would not say that all their dishes are perfect but the lambshanks and mussels marinere come close to perfection.
Fantastic French on the Upper West – To say it simply: the food was excellent, the atmosphere was elegant but not overly formal, the service was prompt and friendly, and the price was reasonable. I look forward to returning, as do my three friends.
Paris on the West Side – I've been a resident of the West Side for 22 years and had always heard rumors of great French food at Mirabelle. Wow! Talk about a best kept secret...this place is great! Just like the hundreds of little family-run places I know in Paris. Excellent, authentic, simple, charming, warm and welcoming are just a few of the words I can think of that describe this restaurant. My partner and I had the pate de campagne and escargot to start, loin of lamb and calves liver, followed by creme caramel and crepes for dessert. Consistently delicious. With a half-bottle of excellent burgundy, the bill came to $103. Prompt and courteous service. Don't expect fancy decor or complex food. Babies and little old folks are an integral part of the clientele...how very French!
