Description: Philosophy of the Food: Tradition and Uncompromising Quality The philosophy of the food at Mirabelle is to respect the tradition of the restaurant and its food, as well as to respect the uncompromising quality of each ingredient that goes into each dish. At Mirabelle, it is not about the plate, or the flatware, or the stemware: it is about quality of the food on that plate, the quality of the wine in the stemware, and the quality, warmth and tradition of the service. Commitment to these ideas is what has brought Mirabelle this far and is what will sustain Mirabelle into the future. The menu at Mirabelle will feature as much local and seasonal product as possible to stay true to the concept of fine French food. Whenever possible whatever can be made to standard in-house, will be made in-house: i.E., All pastas, certain cured meats and charcuterie, and certain fresh cheeses. The menu at Mirabelle will always reflect what is at the peak of seasonality and as local as possible, which is the way the French have been cooking for hundreds of years, tradition. Because of this constant commitment to quality, seasonality and tradition, the menu is well thought out and tightly focused on the concept. It may seem, compared to some other similarly sized area restaurants, fairly small: do a few things, but do them extremely well. Or, for music lovers: play only the notes you want to play. Menu items are designed to be reasonably sized, to encourage the guest to order multiple courses. The menu will, for the most part, be a la carte style. At times throughout the year, due to seasonality and to reflect specific holidays, multi-course, fixed price menu will be offered along with the regular menu. Philosophy of the Service: Warm, friendly, professional and treats the guest as a guest. Each guest at Mirabelle is treated as you would a guest in your home. Hospitality is a lost art, and we at Mirabelle are bent on bringing this art back. When guests come to a restaurant they are hoping to be treated with great care and understanding. We want our guests to return not just because of the food, but because they love the hospitality they receive while they are with us. The service staff at Mirabelle is well-trained and knowledgeable about the food being served and preparations, as well as wine and spirit savvy. All of this combines to offer the guest a very special dining experience that can be enjoyed for any reason or no particular reason at all.

“An outstanding, elegant dining experience at Lake Tahoe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

My husband and I have visited this restaurant several times, by our selves, with friends and family. It consistently ranks as one of the top 5 restaurants we have visited anywhere. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing, the staff very professional while being friendly. But the main treat is the excellent food in the true French tradition. Chef Camille Schwartz's presentation and preparation is just exquisite. It is just amazing that he can prepare a beautiful souffle' at 6500 feet! I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting or living in the Lake Tahoe area.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

Independently owned and operated, you can count on great food and service and true French cuisine from Camille. Always a favorite choice in Tahoe.

“Charming restaurant, delicious French cuisine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

Small, quaint and conveniently located off the main highway. What a wonderful find! The bellman at the hotel recommended and glad we were able to get a reservation. They offer a pre fixe menu but also a regular menu you can order from. Everything was delicious and service was fantastic! Highly recommend Mirabelle!

“Best in Tahoe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

If you want a fine, epicurian meal, head to Mirabelle's. Delicous, French cuisine prepared with every detail perfect. The chef is from France and brings sauces to new heights. If you want a fabulous meal away from the Casinos, this is the place. Five minute drive from the casino in an unassuming strip mall. Charming and pretty inside, don't let the outside fool you. Great wine list, wonderful service and the best food in the South Shore. As a local, it's where we dine for all specila occasions and have a great experience every time!

“Great French Food at South Lake Tahoe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

For years I have avoided this restaurant based on its unappealing location in a very run down strip mall on the Grade. The interior lacks charm and is very dated. However, I don't want to sound like a cliche, but I have learned that you really shouldn't judge a restaurant by its cover either. Also you have to remember this is Tahoe, not Las Vegas.

The service was first rate and very professional. The wine menu is somewhat limited, and I would recommend bringing your own bottle of wine with a corkage fee of only $15.

Our meals were very good, and we now have a new (old) restaurant to eat at the next time we're in Tahoe.
