My wife and I live in the city and have good friends in Park Slope. We have dined a few times in various restaurants and although we did not know Miriam before we went there?we were pleasantly surprised. The food is a very interesting fusion of authentic Israeli/Mediterranean flavors with a touch of elegance but without being obnoxious. We recommend the Borekas to start with (just be carful because you might want them to keep coming) and my wife had the Mediterranean salad which was very good as well. For our main I had the Lamb Musaka and if you like eggplant this is the dish for you?it was hearty and full of flavor which was great for a cold evening. My wife had the filet of Branzino with a bunch of interesting sauces drizzled on them and she really enjoyed it as well. One other thing to mention is that the wine list was pleasantly elaborate and we were able to pair a terrific wine with our meal. Service was very good but not annoying and it seemed like the owner knew a lot of his customers which is always a good sign. We will definitely come back to Miriam?we love places that are a bit rustic with good food and wine and a cool atmosphere.

Pros: Authentic Flavors

Cons: Wait For Brunch

.

I know everyone raves about the brunches, but we went to Miriam for dinner and had every little "mezze" appetizer they offer--it was delicious, the food was very fresh and the combinations were very cool--meatballs and a plum sauce was my favorite. Brunch is better if you have kids; for dinner, the restaurant is a lot more romantic, so I would leave the kids at home.

I try to swing by Miriam every time I'm in Park Slope. The food is great and appropriately priced. I love the mezes and they have a great wine list. Service is always great, too. Also, try the mediterranean salad and knafe for dessert.

Pros: Great ambiance and cuisine

I LOVE coming here for dinner, either with a few friends or with my boyfriend, and even by my lonesome. Half price wine (average bottle being $16) definitely draws me in, but the food is so delicious! I love ordering Mezes, especially when I can't make up my mind, they are a fun "try a little bit of everything" meal. The Bronzino is probably my favorite fish dish, and if they have the Lamb Shenk special next time you go... GET IT! yum!

Really good food in a very cozy restaurant. I have been here a few times and have never been disappointed. All the food is very tasty - and they have a great brunch. The price is very reasonable and the service is friendly.

Miriam is one of my favorite brunch spots in NYC. They offer traditional brunch fair as well as dishes with an Israeli flare. My favorite is their eggs benedict with fabulous hollandaise sauce. The egg sandwiches are tasty too! Miriam used to take credit cards, but is now cash only so come prepared.

We ate there last night. The food tasted good, the decor is funky morrocan and the service was fine. They offered half price wine because it was a weekday. Overall it is well priced.

It is nothing fancy or expensive. The wine came and the waitress screwed off the top. I found this surprising . I expected at least a plastic cork.

We would go back.

Miriam is the best place to go in the neighborhood for low-key yet interesting brunch and dinner. The wine list isn't so bad either, and the staff is great too.

We had an excellent meal at Miriam not too long ago. I think the food there is mostly Israeli... and mostly very delicious. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and just one main dish. Everything was very tasty. Unfortunately I can't remember exactly what we ate, as the dishes were all new to me. The service was very friendly, if a little bit slow. I am looking forward to going back there!

Miriam has never disappointed in the food department. The hummus, fried cheese, jalapeno cheese appetizers are all favorites. Every entree (I usually order fish) has been inventive and delicious. The wines are interesting, and I can usually find something I enjoy drinking. The service has been mixed... sometimes it's terrific and other times a bit slow/forgetful. All in all, this is one of my favorites in Park Slope.

Mabye a week ago or so I stopped in at Miriam for some dinner and it was good. I had their specia, which was ground beef stuffed onions with a plum sauce and white rice w/ veggies. It was spectacular, the sauce was mild but added just the right complement. I had a botttle of Bordeaux "Cheatue Fage" which was reccomended and fit perfect. For an appetizer I enjoyed an Artchoke Salad that seemed to be short a few articokes but whatever it was still bomb. But dessert it where it was really at. I usually am dissapointed with dessert menus, but they had a apple and pistachio stuffed filo with vanilla ice scream, need I say more?

Miriam has an amazing brunch. They have mastered the art of eggs. I highly recommend the isearli breakfast.

Went on Saturday in a group of 8 to the new location in Cobble Hill. The waiter was super nice, and our food was great. The folks who ordered the artichokes "stuffed" with meatballs were a bit surprised to see artichoke hearts with meatballs sitting on top when they arrived, but enjoyed them nonetheless. We got a little bit picky about choosing our wine, but our waiter seemed to have an endless amount of patience with us. We sat in the front, but noticed in the back there was a great nook/curtained off area set aside for a larger party coming later that night. It looked like a GREAT place to have a large birthday dinner (for 18 or so). It was the only place in the area that would take a group of 8 at the last minute, but I have a feeling it won't be that way for long!

Pros: great wine list, fresh ingredients

Cons: tables in front were a bit chilly by the swinging front door

Having eaten at the 5th Avenue location three times, I rate it as one of the best dinner options for vegetarians in Brownstone Brooklyn. There aren't a lot of veg entrees, but including the soups and salads, there is always something tasty for non-flesh-eating diners. The Mediterranean salad is a must, as is the knafe (sp?) for dessert. The wine list is broad for this level of (in)formality, and the mark-up is not outrageous. Service is casual, quirky, but competent. Expose yourself to some unusual flavors.

I went with my boyfriend mid-week and we had a lovely time. Waitress was very friendly although not excessively attentive. It was a relaxed evening, so this was fine. Food was quite good - we had delicious berekas to start, as well as a hummus platter that comes with a pepper mix that was quite good. Main course we had fish, perfectly seasoned, albeit very well-done. As mentioned below, the atomsphere is lovely, lighting very tastefully designed, music choices very odd. A great date!

fun place, great food, the occasional really bad music playing. The servers aren't in your face and the isreali brunch is the best. Dinner is very nice too with a more romantic feel.

Very nice atmosphere, dim, but not dark. As night decends, candles light most of the room, with additional mood lighting suspended from the ceiling. Music playing adds a nice touch too. Girlfriend had the lamb, which was a little overdone, but very tender. I ate the chicken with spinach over pita. The food was all ok, all rather simple. Desert however was excellent, mint tea was great, and the knafe was amazing. Id go back.

We came here on a Sat night because my girlfriend was dying to try the place. The vibe always looked nice and the menu seemed interesting. When we arrived, the place was not crowded. Nevertheless, we had to wait an hour for our entrees. In fact the server brought us dessert menus before we even received our food! The owner comped us dessert, so no hard feelings. As to the food - it was okay. But I have had better Israeli food for half the price. I guess you are paying for the 5th Avenue location. Also, be careful if you order the burekas. The filling was so hot, I actually burned my mouth (and have blisters on my lip as proof!!)

All in all, despite the wait and blisters, it was okay. The owner was nice and seemed to be trying. And the decor/vide is nice (lighting is good). I wouldn't go out of my way though.

We go out to eat all the time and I've never been inspired to write a review, but I absolutely had to write this - especially given the glowing reviews mentioned here. We were So disappointed with this place! Service can make or break a meal and our experience last night was horrible.

The food itself was quite tasty and generous. The menu had lots of interesting choices so it was tough to decide. My first impression was that we'd just have to come back a few more times to taste everything we wanted, but after being ignored pretty much from the start (in a not very busy restaurant) we're not so sure we'd want to deal with the aggravation. We finished our wine and have to look around for our waitress to get another (she was busy chatting with the bartender); had to then wait quite a while before having the wine actually delivered. We finished our meals and watched our waitress repeatedly pass our table without taking the dirty plates away. I can understand if she was busy, but she literally passed by, looked over, saw our plates, looked around her station at her other tables, poured a glass of wine for someone and walked by us AGAIN to stand by the bar. Even when we asked for the check, the waitress dropped the check and STILL left the dishes! Get a clue! I'd love to go back for the food, but it's so not worth the aggravation. This place would be GREAT if it only had an experienced, attentive wait staff.

I'm not a critic or an resturant go-er, who would write reviews, but I found this place to be great!! I wanted to have a quite dinner with my girlfriend. And it was more then i asked for. The reviews people left was excellent, and helpful! I enjoyed my stake dinner which i hoped was bigger. But, boy was it thick and juicy!! I enjoyed every chunk of it!!

I went on a Thursday, and I missed out on the belly dancers along with the bands! But that only makes me want to go again on the weekend! Hope you see you there!!

My boyfriend and I just stumbled upon Miriam's early on a Friday night. We were inticed by the specials listed on the board outside- and we quickly found the place to be everything we expected and more! The waitress was very knowledgeable and gave us excellent recommendations. The menu was unique and hard to choose from. I highly recommend the Mediterranean Salad--diced avocado, tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, and pine nuts, wrapped in grilled eggplant strips. Delicioso! The lamb chops are to die for, and the striped bass was interesting and pleasing to the taste buds. Large portions and reasonable prices for the quality that accompanies the exciting taste and experience that is Miriam!

The fish dishes were overcooked but tasty and interesting. We enjoyed the chopped salad but the meal itself lacked the frrrrresh seasoning and wasn't as good as the one we had on our last visit. we were the only couple in the restaurant and the vibe was kind'a strange. what's with the bar lights?

Seven of us met for dinner and we all ordered different things and not a single meal was a disappointment. The fish dishes were the best, seasoned perfectly with interesting and tasty side dishes. We loved the white bait appetizer. The drinks at the bar before dinner were a highlight. The bartender seemed genuinely happy to have us there and he was easy on the eyes,,,

i have eaten at Miriam's a few times for brunch and it is always great. the food and the service is above par. the waitress (i have had the same one each time) is always very attentive. the food is also very good, especially many of the egg dishes. it is a very welcoming place where you can relax on a saturday or sunday morning.

Well, most of it. Yes, the first experience I had was horrendous (probably just one of those nights), but my boyfriend and I received a personal invitation to come back to alter our initial opinion. We did and we enjoyed it. The server was friendly and knowledgeable. The braised veal was tender and succulent. The kugle, he said, was on par with his mothers recipe. For a time we were the only people in the restaurant but we never felt rushed. We even asked for a break between entrees and desserts and she did it gladly. Thanks, Miriam, for a wonderful evening!

We tried this place with a group of 6 last weekend after glowing reviews. It seems that many of the reviewers have dined in a near empty restaurant but it was completely full at 8pm on a recent Saturday. While friendly, the staff just couldn't juggle that many customers and the service suffered tremendously. After receiving only 2 menus for whole group, nobody came back for another 15 minutes. Our bottle of wine took another 15 to arrive and the appetizers took over half an hour. We got 4 glasses for the wine and were told that they ran out of clean glasses. The food was very good but the portions are pretty small, so while the prices are low, the place is not quite a bargain it seems to be.

Just came back from a Friday night dinner, we were the only people in the restaurant - the white bait is tasty, jerusalem bread is interesting, but not for $6 for three little pieces, the grilled halumi salad was fantastic though. What's most disconcerting is, despite the previous reviewers claims of a mega-friendly owner, we saw hide nor hair of anyone being friendly to us, again, as the only ones in the restaurant for more than an hour. We're good peoples too... Oh well, back to Villa Pizza or Song.

I have ventured in on two separate occasions - found the cuisine, staff & ambience are consistently impressive but disappointed that the place is a bit thin on the patron aspect. I enjoy a place with a bit more live action and wondered where everyone was. I saw them all at the other usual places as I walked my way over from 3rd St-- I suppose most folks find that if they go beyond South Paw they are going into unknown terrain. Back to the cuisine Yes! the Jerusalem bread is light, airy, sprinkled w/ Middle Eastern panache--along with a nice spicy full bodied red from Israel is outstanding. Your palate will be wowed with a brave French cuisine w/warm enticing earthy elements.

I LOVE this restaurant! It is an excellent addition to 5th Avenue's restaurant row and worth the visit to Brooklyn. Miriam's has wonderful ambience, excellent wines, creative and delicious food. This is not your typical middle eastern restaurant...Miriam's serves sophisticated, contemporary and delicious cuisine with excellent flavor combinations. We love the appetizers like Jerusalem bread, amazing butternut squash and the mediterranean salad. Carnivores, fish lovers and vegetarians will all find fabulous options. 2 favorites are the porkchops & the baked tahini grouper. Brunch is also great! You should definitely try Miriam's you won't be disappointed!!

Was walking on 5th ave with a group of friends & we decided to eat at Miriam for no reason but out of hunger. There was hardly anyone inside, but the place had a cozy morroccan vibe that made you want to decorate your house like it. I had the eggplant salad--it was to die for!!! Also ate the dorado & it was amazing as well. My friend had the chicken shawarma & delighted in every bite of it. Another friend had the lamb kabob & said it was excellent and everyone agreed that the steak with sweet potatoe fries was phenomenal. The food was presented aesthetically and the waitstaff was attentive & friendly. The owner stopped by our table to converse for a bit & gave us a bottle of wine to try. He was a very nice guy & made our dining experience special.

The food was presented aesthetically and the waitstaff was attentive & friendly. The owner stopped by our table to converse for a bit & gave us a bottle of wine to try. He was a very nice guy & made our dining experience special.

Pros: Unique food, Cozy atmosphere, Wonderful Owner

Cons: None

I was so impressed by Miriam. It's not the typical Mediterranean or Middle Eastern fare one might expect. There isn't one ball of falafel in the place! It's a creative mixing of all the delicious flavors and fragrances of the region into wonderful upscale cuisine. Everything was fresh, delicious and unique. The atmosphere is soothingly warm and exotic and to top it all off, there's entertainment: a wonderful little quartet playing earthy Middle Eastern music and a lovely belly dancer tastefully gyrating about. Even if you don't live around the corner (as I do) I think it's worth a trip.

Situated on the corner of a tree-lined street and simply but comfortably appointed, this Park Slope eatery looks at first like a neighborhood restaurant. Catch a glimpse of the menu, however, and you'll know that it's not. The Israeli menu…
