Great food, great service. I loved the italian-latin fusion.

After living in the area for 2 years and trying almost every restaurant except for this one, I finally dined at Miranda last night. The service was beyond wonderful - the waiter was very patient with our many questions and helpful with suggestions. The food was perfectly cooked and full of flavor. Sasha happened to be eating right next to us (after a long night in the kitchen) and chatted with us about the food - we mentioned that we wanted to try one dish but decided on others and she so nicely sent over samples of the dish to our table. I will definitely go back to Miranda soon!

I stumbled upon this restaurant and while looking at the menu in the window a passerby commented that it was excellent. I tried it out myself when I had some people in town and it was amazing! The service and attention to detail are outstanding and the food is delightful - all the ingredients were super fresh! I would definitely go back!
Good flavors, tiny portions, too pricey

Some very interesting Latin-Italian fusion flavors here, but the price just isn't right. The portions are tiny and without filling you up. The wine is very pricey. The pre fixe isn't any help when it comes to cost. The food is memorable, but not incredible. You just don't get enough for your money.

A great addition to the neighborhood! Had the grilled baby octopus salad and mushroom filled Mezzaluna with a truffle oil sauce. Everything was delicious and the service was very personable and sweet. I will definitely be returning.
A small good thing

The husband and wife team here have poured a lot of love into this restaurant, and it comes through in the simple, creative, and refined taste of their dishes, which could be described as an Italian-Ibero mix. Service is attentive, and Mauricio, who runs the front of the house, has impeccable wine recommendations. I had a mind-boggling Spanish organic blend here once. The wine list focuses on small vineyards, so expect to see something new each time. The menu features some interesting combinations like arrancini with chorizo; grilled octopus with shallot-jalapeno vinaigrette; gnocchi, chipotle chicken and cotijo, among others. The other night, I tried mole lamb ragu ravioli. Unlike some other fusion places, the results here are absolutely scrumptious. Props to the chef, who is able to strike the right balance between the savory, tummy-warming, spicy, and crisp flavors of both cuisines. I've been here 4 times for dinner, and haven't been disappointed one bit. It's a lovely place (not ostentatious in any way) and whenever I get home I'm always happy to have experienced a small, good thing.
