I have been there several times and every one has enjoyed their food. I usually get a salad. They offer 2 sizes but the smaller one is more than enough for me. My husband gets one of thier sandwiches. With the salad you get a huge muffin on the side. The blueberry is dilicious! The location is easy to get... More

The food was a little on the cool side, but service was prompt and efficient. Wait time in the front greeting area was kept to a minimum even on a busy day.

New menu is pretty good, but we had a horrible waiter. Had to ask for everything from silverware to bread and water refills. Try to get a table with the waitress. She was serving the other tables much better than what we were getting.

Friendly server, prompt service and delicious meal. We had our meal mid-day before going to an evening function so had the room almost to ourselves and several tables hadn't been cleaned yet but ours had been and we received great service from "Annie".

A really nice looking place with just decent food but slow service. I've been there solo for lunch and a couple of times for dinner with my wife. In all, I would say it has lots of promise, but has failed to deliver its potential. My first time with my wife there, we had their Cobb Salad and their 1/2... More

We were staying across the street at the Hilton and were coming back from a long day in SF... otherwise, we would have never gone. I am not a Mimi's fan - but we were hungry. Service was SOOOO SLLLLOOOOWWWWW - hardly anyone in the place and took a long time to get food. Waitress was good - food was... More

Came here with family who live in the area. We enjoyed our lunch. The food was good, the service was good. We were in a nice quiet part of the restaurant (probably so our infant wouldn't disturb other diners). Prices are reasonable and the portions were sizable. Would certainly return. If you need a sit-down meal in the San Mateo... More

Had a steak thinking, how can you get this wrong? But they did, I asked for mine medium rare and it turned out tough.

We had never visited a Mimi's Cafe before so we thought we would try one while in town on business. We arrived to a nearly empty restaurant. After being promptly seated, it took too long to have someone take our drink order. When it arrived, so did two dirty bread plates, however, no bread came with the plates. Again, a... More
