Very Average Food

We liked the baked brie appetizer, but everything else was mediocre. Had the Fish & Chips - the chips were soft/soggy; the Chicken Crepes - sauce was not great; the Stew - seemed small, but my in-law liked it. Wouldn't be my first choice for a return visit.

Great place to have breakfast. The lunch however is pretty standard. Moderately priced, so you won't go broke eating there.

We were a large party of 19 for lunch. We had reservations and we were seated promptly in a separate room. Our waitress was nice, but it took 20 minutes just to get our beverages. Then she disappeared (again) and we had to wait for her to finally take our orders. The food was okay, but a little bland. Portions... More

My wife and I ate at Mimi's last night and had great meals. We had a very good experience - fast service, excellent food and reasonable prices. Long ago Mimi's used to have a "New Orleans" theme to their menu but it has changed to a more upscale American/French orientation. Within the last year we have eaten at three other... More

our waiter was excellent and the food was rather tasty as well. All that was missing was a showcase of their delicious fresh pastries

I went with my girlfriend for lunch. We were promptly seated. My girlfriend ordered a sourdough bacon avocado burger and received a hamburger. I ordered some sort of crepe which was Ok, but my salad was swimming in dressing. Both orders took an extraordinary amount of time to come out. On the plus side the waitresses were polite and friendly.

We've eaten at many Mimi's restaurants in different locations (Cerritos, Los Feliz, Lakewood, City of Industry, Torrance, and Lakewood). Most of our meals and the service have been good but not worth writing about. Last night we had the meatloaf dinner and the French Quarter (hamburger on grilled Parmesan sourdough bread). Both dishes were exceptional! We even had leftovers! And,... More

The food was good but it took forever to get our food, however it was a Friday night. I had a Buy One Get One Dinner Free Coupon, however it was on my phone and this Mimi's did not accept the showing of the coupon on the phone (even though the coupon on the phone specifically says to present this...

I used to like Mimi's for a chain with good quality comfort food. However this Mimi's quality has completely deteriorated in the last few years. I have not been there in a year so unless they have executed the "management" and new I would stay far away unless you like cold food served with bad service.
