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.

For 35 years we have gone to Mimi's Monrovia, me for lunch with friends and for dinner with my husband. About 2-3 years ago this location was going downhill fast, and one time even had gnats all over the dining room where the restroom was. We stopped going when we took a friend and the food was bad, service was... More

When I first walked into this place, it reminded me of a New Orleans bistro. While the food is not creole style like in New Orleans, it's good. Their crab cakes are made with real crabmeat, unlike a lot of places that use imitation. The place is clean and service has always been good. Even at breakfast time, they have... More
