They have the best meatloaf ever!! They serve it with mashed potatoes and gravy, veggies, and fresh bread. They also have TV's with sports on just in case. They also serve beer and wine. So if you have to take the family out to dinner, you won't miss the game!!!

I have been to Mimi's a while back, and found their food to be very tasty. They offer a variety of French delicacies. The coffee they serve is well presented and their French onion soup is a must-try. I had the salmon main course and it was prepared to perfection.

Good food, nothing fantastic, but a nice homey place. Good service too! Nice variety too, with a little New Orleans mixed in.

The food here was good before they went to the New French style. Service was about the same but, the food we enjoyed is no longer available. One thing they still have is the Roasted Turkey my favorite.

I used to love this place but their updated menu almost obliterated their seafood options! There's only 1 seafood dish available - salmon. Service is good but the food selections are not much!

My fiancé and I had dinner at Mimi's on the way home from Yosemite. My fiancé had the salmon while I had the roasted turkey. The salmon was cooked perfect, no complaint from the fiancé. My roasted turkey was juicy and the mashed potatoes was well seasoned. My only complaint is the dressing had too much celery. Other than that... More

Food is average- actually quality of food has declined over the last 7 years. Used to be really quality food for brunch at fairly low prices. Service can be patchy, if you get the Asian servers you will get better service. The Mexican servers can be borderline rude at times. The hostess is usually poor.

My wife and I ordered Mimi's 'Bacon and Avocado' omelet at Mimi's in San Mateo, CA. What we got was a somewhat dry omelet with only two very thin strips of bacon crossed over the top. I had expected a lot of bacon and was very disappointed. The rest of the breakfast was nice and the waitress was very nice,... More

Not was the service no attentive,I checked my bank statement and someone added an additional $5 to $17 dinner. I always leave a cash tip for that reason so its easier to check for any discrepancies. Wish I could take back the $3 tip I left him.

We were looking for a nice lunch place while on the way to San Francisco and found this place near the San Mateo Bridge. Great soup and salad lunch and fried Artichokes as an appetizer, Highly recommend.
