I feel that mimi's, used to be better. Better service, food, etc. My last visit, was exactly that. I have not been impressed for quite some time.

Potentially really good but not executed well. Nice menu with lots of choices but lack of attention to detail by kitchen staff dulls the experience. More salt does not equate to better food. I ordered the mussels with "friets" which were allegedly prepared with Meyer lemon but no hint of lemon in the broth. Non the less the broth was... More

Came to California for my son's wedding in April and was happy to see a Mimi's close by for brunch the next day. We had 12 people including small children and were quickly seated at a large table with plenty of room. Mimi's is always consistent with their quality no matter where I've been. Everyone had something different from breakfast... More

This local restaurant is pretty good when it comes to brunch especially the champagne flights or sampler. Great ambiance, good food and good people or crew. This restaurant can get pretty busy on special holidays.

The food is lame, the service was not good and the dinning hall was terrible. No privacy at all and it's very small. I wouldn't go here if I were you unless you like a terrible experience.

There are not a lot of choices in the area, but for good family, American style food you are pretty much guaranteed a good meal. Not too expensive, friendly service.

Although the menu can change, you can always depend on good service and good food. Good variety on the menu including some seasonal items. We were here for lunch and had the chicken croissant and the apple croissant, and both were very good. Our server, Jose, was very attentive and was prompt in refilling drinks. Servings were generous. Everyone was... More

If you like pasta, this is the place to go. Servings are large - could potentially feed two for the price of one!

Mimi's is an attractive restaurant with dependable service and food. The menu has changed dramatically in the past year, although some old favorites recently returned in apparent response to customer complaints. Still, there are plenty of tasty selections to choose from, especially the salads. The servers tend to be young, friendly, and attentive, and no one minds if you linger... More
