Great visit

I'm shocked this great restaurant isn't rated higher. Food and service were excellent tonight. My wife and our two teenagers loved it.

What a great meal we had! I am not sure what the other reviewers are saying about the food not being tasty or just uninspired. My husband and I decided to give Mia a chance despite the uneven reviews, and we are happy we did. We started with several appetizers (tapas, I guess). We shared the pork buns, the marinated...

An excellent introduction to tapas, with very pleasant staff. The food was excellent, with just the right level of spiciness.

Loved the pork buns! Great service, great local beer, and food. Too bad the street is under construction, would like to travel back when it is complete. Going to be great!

An eclectic menu combining Thai, Japanese, Indonesian, and other cuisines. The food was superb, as was the service. Terrific restaurant!

Small but phenomenal. Eclectic selection. The prawn dinner was wonderful. Hubby had the rack of lamb and said it was the best he had ever had. I would go back any time.

Stopped in at Mia to get dinner, Tapas seemed like a good idea as we had a pretty big, late lunch. Decor is simple and was not particularly crowded, Service was friendly and attentive. What didn't work for though was the food...just didn't enjoy it. My wife and I ordered two dishes each. I got the duck on a salad... More

Asian cuisine mixes with fusion to create a great selection at Mia Tapas Bar. You have a choice of small plates (three to four a person is sufficient) or standard sized entrees. We went with eight small plates; a mixture of salads, savories and noodles and enjoyed every choice. The room is bright and well laid out (note that the... More

While we enjoyed the food at Mia, we suffered sticker shock when we got our bill. The wait staff should clearly ask whether you want the taste or the glass of wine. My husband and I each had 2 glasses of wine and when we received the bill, we were charged $72 for 4 glasses of wine, $18 per glass!!... More

My teen age kids and I had an early dinner at Mia on a Saturday night. Tried lots of the small dishes and my son also had a large curry dish, (Panang, and quite spicy!) The calamari was very good as were the pork buns. Also had a tofu salad, wontons, and raman. Definitely tapas with an Asian twist. Hopefully... More
