My husband and I went to dinner at Mimi's Café last night and it was terrible, after placing the order we waited 50 minutes for our meal . I ordered roast chicken with fries, and the whole meal came to the table so cold that I requested to speak to the Manager, who offered to make me a new... read more

We went here for Valentine's Day, Gus ordered the Valentine Special - steak and I, of course, had their French Onion Soup--which I love. Gus' steak was so tough he could not eat it, but he tried. He told our waitress that it was inedible because it was so tough and difficult to cut, so he then ordered their fish... More

We hadn't been traveling this way in a couple of years and almost didn't stop in with the reviews saying it had changed, was noisy and had bad service. Boy am I glad we ignored them and came back again. We didn't have to wait to get in and the carpeting, curtains and multi tiered ceiling kept noise levels down... More

Open the front door at lunch time and the atmosphere is like walking into a surprise party. From outside not expecting everything to be perfection.The decor was not average and gave the room nice ambience. The booths were wide and comfortable. The place was packed so there was an expected wait. The wait was well worth it. The chicken avocado... More

Food was just ok, overpriced. It was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think. This was supposed to be "special treat" from my father. I didn't want to spoil it for him by walking out. But, will not be back, way, way too loud. When talking to other individuals, they also said they have had this experience.

I should begin this review by saying that I've eaten here three times so far and want to give it better than a 3 rating, but can't. Pro's: Decent Atmosphere, Food Cons: Service (all 3 trips involved waits longer than was necessary once seated and led to the "forgotten about" feeling which is awkward.)

We stopped here on the way back from a family trip to recharge our electric car, as the cafe is only steps from the Tesla chargers. The atmosphere is very pleasant, a faux French/New Orleans decor that is very cozy compared to most chains. There is a nice selection of homestyle French food items like Bouillabaisse and Sautéed sole, beef... More

Wife and I thought we'd do something special for New Years Day dinner. Ordered their steak at $18 and wife fish/chips. Asked for steak to be little red in center, it came over cooked and dry. The fries were absolutely terrible, cold and SOGGY. The fries that came with the fish/chips were the same. The fish just average and overpriced... More

Four of us went for lunch today, Dec 31. Server was there right away and took beverage order. Returned quickly and took our lunch orders. And then we waited and waited and waited - it was close to 30 minutes before our food arrived. And the place was not slammed - there were open tables. French fries bordered on inedible... More

Unexpectedly delicious. I had the bouillabaisse and wanted to lick the bowl when I was done! Also, the bacon chees forties are terrific.
