Came here for dinner before an event at Barclay Center. We were accomodated even though we didn't have a reservation. My husband is a picky non vegan vegetarian and there was plenty on the menu for him to choose from. The service was very good as was the food. The owner took the time to greet each table. The restaurant... More

I have been here for brunch a few months earlier and returned for dinner the other day. Food was very good (again) and although there is not a huge selection of mixed drinks, the one I got was excellent. Nice wine selection as well. The service was good for the most part. The only thing I did not love was... More

We stopped in here today for coffee and to rest a while with our baby. Really lovely place. Bright, tremendous 80's music, and very friendly service. Great wifi connection too. Can't comment on the food but the other patrons looked very happy.

A warm welcome initiate the experience. Staff is very friendly. Food is good with some excellent dishes and other less attractive. Kitchen production is not consistent. A little pricy Overall good experience.

We ended up at this restaurant when the one we planned to go to was closed. This turned out to be a very nice option. We went with a small group for brunch, which is served until 4:00pm. I had the Israeli breakfast, and it was terrific. Everyone ordered something different, and every choice turned out to be very good.... More

I visited Miriam recently on a Sunday afternoon for Brunch. We were a group of 5 with varied eating requirements - we had a vegetarian, one carb-restricted member, one who was lactose-intolerant, one strict carnivore and one omnivore. Thankfully, there was something delicious on the menu for each of us. It's a popular Brunch spot, so we had to wait... More

First time having Israeli food and it was very good. To start they provide bread and pickles, which is a nice way to whet your appetite. I tried a number of different mezes (small plates) and my favorites were the meatballs, the zucchini fritters, and the goat cheese and honey. The meatballs were in a pomegranate sauce and reminded me... More

We came across Cafe Miriam just by accident. We were looking for a good place for having breakfast at our first sightseeing day in New York. We had blueberry pancakes and potato pancake two eggs (any style) with labneh cheese, and Israeli salad and coffee and water, of course. It is a lovely place, the waiters are great and they... More
