Located on the fourth floor of Forty Five Ten on Main, across from The Joule, Mirador is an approachable yet elegant restaurant serving modern American cuisine by executive chef Michael Ehlert. As the name implies, Mirador boasts expansive views of downtown through 11-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and a wrap-around terrace overlooking Tony Tasset's outdoor sculpture Eye—the ideal setting for a lingering lunch, a celebratory dinner, or late night cocktails.

We had a girls college reunion. We stayed at the Joule. Only four of us and enjoyed the space and drinks as it is a very beautiful restaurant with great cocktail menu but the food is overpriced, unflavored, limited and uncreative selection. There were only 4 other tables in the restaurant filled so I assume it has had other bad reviews. Waitress was nice but service was not very quick either as it took a while to get our food. We were puzzled because it was so empty.

It is a shame the food is not better because it is so beautiful.

Really enjoyed our food and evening at Mirador. We were slightly disappointed with the service. We felt the waitress wasn’t as attentive as she could have been and the bartender didn’t acknowledge us at the bar while we waited for our table to be ready and then once we sat we received our appetizers prior to receiving our cocktails. A bachelorette party also was dining there and the noise level definitely impacted the over all ambiance. The food was fabulous and overall were satisfied with our experience.

One of our favorites in Dallas, our table butler Lucy is always very attentive and welcoming. Food and wine options are excellent. The bar is worth a visit too, the decor and the little intimate seating areas are cosy, yet sophisticated. We definitely recommend the whole experience.

First, great facility. Minimally, but tastefully decorated. Interesting cocktail list with drinks expertly made. Like many restaurants, you sit a your table for a while without any bread or bites of any kind. (Restauranteurs really need to solve this. Be creative.) When we finally decided what we were going to order we selected the ricotta toast appetizer which was excellent and sufficient for 4 person sharing, and the four of us had two pasta dishes and two fish dishes. All flavors were good but the presentation and quantity of tuna left something to be desired. Broccoli, asparagus and tater tots were all well made and tasty sides. Wine list somewhat limited but not a problem. A bit on the expensive side so it gets a high recommendation only for the expense account customer and a mid-high for others.

We went to Mirador for Mother's Day and it wowed the whole family. The staff was friendly, authentic, and anticipated all of our needs. We loved the seafood plateau and the pastry buffet. The room is comfortable and well designed. There is a great view of downtown buildings- and especially fun is the view of people swimming in the Joule's pool down the street.

Sometimes when you dine for the first time at a restaurant that you have heard of you do not know what to expect. Well this was an absolutely great experience, the room was very comfortable with view of downtown and the food was as good a meal as we’ve had anywhere in Dallas this year. The service was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We will see you again soon

Our first time here and we were impressed. The whipped ricotta toast is beyond awesome as was the pasta dish we ordered. The drinks "madame coco" was probably one pf the best drinks I had to date. Would like to see more vegetarian options on the menu though. Loved the ambiance and service.

With its floor to ceiling windows the view of the city is great. The food presentation, and taste were both good as well as unique. The staff were all very easy to work with so no problems there. The ambiance is also very relaxing. The prices were fair considering where you are eating. I will definitely go back.

Mirador is a lovely place perched on top of the best shopping experience in town! Beautiful views and great ambience. I have only had lunch there so I cant' speak for the dinner experience. Really nice wine list, deviled eggs were divine as was the tomato soup. I had the cobb salad which was really good. It was a little different than the regular cobb most of us are used to, but Mirador is not a regular place! My only complaint was the the bacon crumbles were out of a bag like I buy at the grocery store and not chopped bacon pieces. Other than that it was a lovely experience. My second time in for lunch, and I will be back!

You can't go wrong here. This place rarely disappoints. The service staff is second to none also. I ordered a dish I had previously loved and they brought it, though they had modified the recipe - I no longer liked it as much. Our waitress happily got it redone, old recipe - it came out fantastic. The food was excellent, as always and the staff was nothing but pleasant.

The food is good, however, the lemonade tasted like it was made with swamp water. It had a spoiled smell. For $5 it was a big let down. Couldn't even drink it. Thought I might get sick.

Food was delicious. Location/ambiance is absolutely top, in the penthouse above Forty Five Ten, a fashion/art boutique on Main Street, decorated accordingly. Not a place meant for children, but the six of us including two children showed up wearing a mix of fancy clothes, soccer attire and quasi-pajamas (long story). They were unfazed and treated us like you'd expect from a classy place. We'll be back. Only problem is that it's hard to find if you don't know it's inside Forty Five Ten.

This review is for a recent lunch at Mirador.

Food and service were both excellent. The French fries were perhaps the best I've ever had and would be worth a stop here on their own. Shrimp po-boy was quite good. Dessert--a lemon custard inside of a hard meringue shell--was fantastic. Appetizers were great too.

Eight thumbs up for Mirador.
