As I'm a French chef, I was really anxious to eat in that French cubanos restaurant. Finally French dishes were really well executed. We ate oysters which were delicious and so fresh. Onion soup was awesome, the same for the Mussels. Pate were good not more. Dessert were good too. Really nice surprised by that French restaurant which really respect... More

A group of 10+ friends and I went to this nice bistro on a Saturday night. In a great location in Highwood, and with convenient vale parking, this restaurant has a great variety of appetizers and main dishes. I loved the French onion soup, nice house salad and beautifully done blue cheese steak with fries. Portions were good and the... More

Had a day off and my wife and I decided to venture out a try some place new in a nearby neighborhood. Miramar sounded interesting. We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. High-touch service, place was well-worn (vintage - added to the ambiance) but clean and really nice looking. We tried the pate and it was very good... only ask... More

Miramar has been around for a while now and holding its own. With more competition in Highwood, Miramar still stands out as a great place for brunch, lunch or dinner. Food is always great.

We had a business dinner in the private room for 20 people. The food was great. The service was some of the best I've ever had. And it feels like quintessential Chicago, even though it is far north of the city.

Interesting menu and high quality and varied food. If it were a touch less expensive I'd frequent the place.

I was thrown by the "German" stylings of the exterior and found it to be anything BUT in the interior. I walked in and instantly felt at ease. It looked as if it had been there forever and was timeworn and well loved. The hostess was cordial and shook our hands. (Nice touch BTW!) We had a quick cocktail at... More

We really really like Miramar. Just shy of love. We live super close and couldn't get enough when it first opened. Since then the prices have risen as our enthusiasm has lowered. Miramar is at its best during the summer. We love the design with the doors that open to the sidewalk making it feel like you are on vacation.... More

My wife and brother-in-law came in for lunch and a couple drinks and it was a delightful experience. The staff were so personable and professional. We got sandwiches, salads and burgers and even a couple boiled eggs at the bar as an interesting treat! Piles of pomme frittes added a good side and their beer/wine selection was excellent. We're coming... More
