This is one of the best family owned French restaurants in Manhattan. Patrons are loyal for decades ... and for good reasons.

The food was mediocre at best. The pate was too salty and tasteless. The duck was excellent, but very overpriced. The menu very limited.

Classic French restaurant, great food and charming service in delightful setting. We had chosen to dine early as two guest were elderly with hearing difficulties. Between 5 and 6 on a Saturday, we were very comfortable; then, business and noise picked up and by 7 we were certainly ready to leave.
Unexpected pleasure of a rendering of "happy birthday" by one of the staff: thank you!

Have lived on the UWS for 15 years and was always curious about Mirabelle but had never gone. Very glad we did! An absolutely first rate French bistro, with a classic menu, beautifully executed. Service was prompt and attentive without being obtrusive. We will come back.

Seems that something has changed at this restaurant. Perhaps a new chef. Whatever change has taken place it’s not for the better.

An old, old favorite. The manhattans were, indeed, perfect, and I'd been missing sweetbreads, done to a T. The suggestion to get the lamb stew was spot on. Well done, old friend.

Incredible always. It had been too long since our last visit but we don’t get to NYC as often as we used to. But La Mirabelle is always a must! Naomi is a superb server!Terrific food, ambiance, service, & value. Will always return and recommend!

La Mirabelle is classic French bistro. I have been there several times and the food and service is very consistent- always very good. The food is very good bistro fare- nothing nouvelle here. But they have all the bistro classics- steak frites, rack of lamb, kidneys, sweetbreads and more familiar fare, too. Portions are large by French restaurant standards. Service is excellent. They know what they are doing in both the dining room and the kitchen.
This is not a cheap dinner out, but then it is not a cheap dinner. But you certainly get your money’s worth at La Mirabelle.

We loved the meal but the staff seemed overwhelmed and the wait times between sitting down and getting drinks was too long as was the wait for each course and dessert.

No nos gusto no saber que era Prix Fixe. Lo tienen q avisar. Ibamos por su excelente Dover Sole y el foie gras y no los había en el menu. No nos gusto la cena!

Great French bistro in Manhattan. Informal, nice atmosphere and first rate food. One of the few places one can have broiled kidney nowadays and here, it is excellent.

We requested a quieter table and were provided a table upstairs that overlooked to main seating area and found it quieter than downstairs.
Great service, food and menu choices, and, overall, a delightful evening.
Will definitely recommend La Mirabelle!!

Small, intimate restaurant, not noisy at all, looked like a lot of repeat neighborhood clientele dining there, which is a great sign of consistent service and food quality. Typical pricing for NYC, nice menu selection with a few specials, excellent food preparation, and very attentive service. Definitely will return, and will recommend to friends.

Although we live close by we had never been, we’ll be going a lot more often. You might not even notice it walking by but you should stop in. We had a really nice table for 2 and there is a real nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Our waiter was very nice and helped us with our dinner choices. I had the French onion soup and mussels and both were delicious. Overall, a very enjoyable evening out.

Finally, a restaurant that recalls what dining is all about. Food that you do not cook at home (like sweetbreads, kidneys, etc), good wine at a very reasonable markup, white tablecloths, solicitous service, and a soothing and quiet ambiance.

In other words, a restaurant that doesn’t try to be a bar.

I always feel like I have gone back to Paris in a different era, when we go to La Mirabelle.
Other couples whom we have brought there, always become repeat customers. The
food is delicious, from duck to seafood to the steak. Seems like mostly a neighborhood
crowd - not at all a tourist trap, but we regularly drive down from Westchester, and it
is well worth the drive!

This restaurant never fails to please. The wait staff is polite and attentive. I was part of a party of 7 and everyone was pleased with their meal. In addition to very good food and service, the surroundings are such that conversation is not an effort because the sound level is quiet. All in all a lovely place to dine.
