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.

“Excellent Food, Service, and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

My family enjoy this restaurant very much. We have been here twice. Once with just my husband (romantic!) and second with our daughter (very fun!). The food was great and the service was wonderful. The chef is very dedicated to his restaurant. We will visit this restaurant often.

“Great French Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Went there early on a week night after been taken there by a friend the year before. Another of those restaurants you wouldnt pick without recommendation. Very good French food especially the fois gras. We chose from the menu and the specials. They had a very reasonably priced 3 course menu with good choices for £30. we chose a la carte where mains were about £25-£27.
The souffle is worth making room for.

Not a cheap night out but worth doing once on our holiday. Will definitely go again.

“Good food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Just past the Stateline, in a small strip mall, the Mirabelle has a wonderful, diversified menu. It is a small, well partitioned place. There have intimate spaces, as well as more open spaces for larger groups. We ordered from the menu and from specials of the night. They were well executed with interesting flavors, not saturated with sauces. Hard to find, sautéed foie gras, was excellent and quite generous in size. The quail and sweetbreads were fresh and cooked to perfection. The entrees were just the right size, the venison loin, the lamb were very tender. We had the special wine of the day, good selection. We were never rushed, and had a leisure dinner. We came back 2 days later, the experience was still wonderful. The prices are reasonable, and to my husband's delight, they had expresso for after dinner.

“Reliably Good - wonderful souffles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Back to the Mirabelle - a usual haunt during the holidays. The menu doesn't change much but what they do they do well. The fois gras (no-longer available in CA) was magical, the venison tender and perfectly cooked. And to finish off, the souffle was scrummy and the espresso was good (rare is Tahoe). We'll be judging all other souffles against Mirabelle's high standard until we return.

“Great find, great Foie Gras”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We made a reservation to eat here, mainly because they had Foie Gras.

This little restaurant is in a strip mall just a few minutes drive from MontBlue Casino. Inside, it is quite cozy, and they served us fine food all with very fine presentations.

Of course, we had Foie Gras. It was awesome. We also had Foie Gras at Ciera the night before. Mirabelle's Foie Gras was half the price, and gave us similiar if not more Foie Gras than Ciera.

We also had their Frog Legs and Escargots. They were great.

My husband had their duck breast. The duck breast was delicious. I had their fish special, which was also good.

They didn't have a children's menu, however, our waitress offered our kids simple pastas. My 12 year old had pasta with chicken and Afredo sauce, and my 9 year old had pasta with butter sauce. The pastas came out kids portioned, and were reasonable kids prices.

We didn't leave room for desserts, but it seemed they had great desserts too.

We would come back to this place next time we are at South Tahoe.
