The huge menu is always interesting and changing. If you like entertainment with your meal, try sitting at the bar and watch the chefs.

“mediocre”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Considering how great the reviews are, I must have been there on an off day. I went for lunch and the food was mediocre at best. Too much melted cheese in my sandwich. The appetizer with French fries and green was not great. The only good point was the dessert with blueberries.

“Delightful Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

We enjoyed dinner at Cafe Miranda. The decor is eclectic and the food is delicious. A warning - the portions are really large. We over ordered, but enjoyed trying to finish our dinner.

“March 2014 Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

For such a small restaurant, the menu is incredible! My husband and I had a steak that was on the specials. Very good and an ample portion. I had a pasta with crab. Excellent! I too had an very large portion and would have been happier with a smaller meal. They have small plates, but since it was our first time there, I didn't know how big the servings would be. I will get a smaller plate next time. The waitress was knowledgeable about the wine and helped with our selection. The place was very busy for an off season Friday.

“Great food, good service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

One of our favorite places to dine. My husband and I try to celebrate our anniversary dinner here each summer and thought it would be a great place to bring friends from out of town last night.

Impressive menu, always good pasta dishes, yummy cocktails, and good service. Some of our favorites are the oven roasted veggies, mushroom pasta, old bleu, and pasta primavera. Generous portions and always have plenty to take home for a meal the next day.

One of our favorites is to sit at the bar for dinner when Kerry is cooking. We call it "dinner and a show". His larger than life personality is a great addition to dinner. We get to talk to him and watch him cook.

One cannot pass up a visit to the restrooms to check out the decorations of Elvis memorabilia.

Great food and drink and lots of fun!
