This sweet little place made the perfect evening for my husband & I . The moment we walked in, from the smile on the hostess face, to the service, music, and the FOOD. It was outstanding. There's even an outside patio. The menu is at least five pages long, an interesting wine and beer list. We ordered the beet salad,... More

Cafe Miranda is all things to all people unless you happen to be looking for super upscale dining! They have a fantastic menu, quick and not especially personal service but we're there to eat, right? Food is A-1 from my experience. Wine and beer available. What more? Don't miss it if in Rockland!

Very pleasant evening and great dinner. Maybe a little on the pricey side, but all the food was excellent and the staff could not have been friendlier or more attentive. Only "problem" was deciding what we wanted from what is probably the largest menu I've ever seen - certainly for a fairly small restaurant! Be sure to make a reservation!

Cafe Miranda is one of the top 5 restaurants my wife and I have had the pleasure of enjoying. The food is incredible, the ambiance is great and the service is top notch. Try the Chowdah Guy, fish cakes (haddock) and any of the incredible pasta dishes. Seafood is wonderful and locally sourced. Huge portions. You will not leave her... More

We really loved this place. The atmosphere is very casual. The menu has a lot to offer. The items are very tasty and cleverly done. The chocolate ice cream was exquisite.

Miranda's "Chowdah Guy" blew my mind. I licked the bowl clean while my wife wasn't looking. If you are looking for an incredible meal (my wife's meal was excellent as well), look no further.

A casual, cozy spot with an extensive menu that covers all bases. Surf, turf, pasta and greens, it's rare to stumble upon a restaurant that does it all successfully. But Cafe Miranda is one of those rare cases. Cafe Miranda doesn't take it self too seriously. The quirky names of the menu offerings and plastic flamingo decor around the cafe... More

We ate dinner here first of six nights in the area. Thought that with such a large menu we'd be back. I had the "Delish" homemade pasta with lobster. A very large mound of pasta with small amounts of lobster -- which I thought was overpriced. Tasty, yes, but would go for something with more meat next time. My husband... More

We ordered take out and I was uncertain if the quality would be as good. It was. Delicious signature pizza and antipasto. Due to time constraints we were unable To dine in, but next time for sure. My only comment would be to update the menu on Line as the prices don't match the bill (signature pizza).

Went for lunch after a morning at the Farnsworth. Biggest issue is trying to chose from the huge menu. Totally pleased with our meals and the service. It is very small so can see why you would need reservations for dinner. Prices reasonable as well.
