We had a party of eight, which was hard to find a place for. The restaurant feels like old Baltimore or someplace in Europe. Service was exceptional, unobtrusive but ever present. I'll bet my water glass was refilled half a dozen times. I had a...More

Enjoyed the food and the ambiance. Great corner side seating outdoors on the cute streets of Highwood. Reasonably priced and the Spanish themed food pleased everyone at our table.

Miramar Bistro is a well established classic old school French bistro anchoring the dining scene in Highwood/Highland Park. The menu is what you would and should expect and the execution is spot on.

We went there to celebrate our sons birthday. Cocktails and cheese platter were okay but the artichoke was served cold and just so so. The highlight was the onion soup and gnocchi, as the crab cake was just fair. The steak entree although ordered medium...More
