Called in reservations on a Friday night at 7:30. Arrived and found the restaurant not busy, a clue something was not like it has been in the past. They had our table set for 7 and we waited about 10 minutes for our waitress to come over (looked like she had 3 tables). She took our drink order (soda &... More

I just recently visited for a quick breakfast. The decor was beautiful! A lot of nooks and crannies of our booth made me feel like I was in France but other parts felt like a very classy American chain restaurant. And when it all comes down to it....Mimis IS an American chain restaurant and that is what you can expect... More

I ordered online for curbside pickup. I got to mimis parked in the curbside pickup spot and called to let them know I was there and waiting. The girl told me it would be ready in five minutes and the she would bring it out. After ten minutes I called again and got no answer. After thirty minutes I called... More

We made reservations well over a month in advance for a brunch party following my son's graduation. It was a combined party with another friend and we booked for 20 people. I checked the reservation a week before the party and both times (original booking and follow up) was assured we would have one table for all 20 people. Upon... More

You know, Mimi's for years was our breakfast of choice on weekends in the Elkridge area, primarily when we went to shop at Costco nearby (also see my review today, of Costco's pizza). We always got lots of value, good food, friendly service and really overall satisfaction with our visits. If this review was written some time ago, I would... More

The French Quarter in New Orleans has some great restaurants, both upscale and divey. Mimi's aims to be someplace in between. Dishes are French-inspired, but execution is down-to-earth and hearty like a good American country-style restaurant. It's a delicious and heart-warming fusion. Everything generally tastes great. Their hit-or-miss is the fruit they serve at breakfast. Whomever is responsible for their... More

Ambiance great! Food great ! Service needs work. Management needs to check tables , some waitresses are doing just enough to get by (ie: Cindy not clearing dishes, having to ask for refills, )

Oh my word! This would be my third and probably the last time to visit this restaurant. They have gone from bad to worse. I was there for breakfast a few hours ago and I must say- where do I start? Staff: They were understaffed! So long wait times. My children were frustrated because of duration we had to sit... More

After finishing our meal and seeing everyone around us with a basket of bread, we were told by our server that "they only give out bread on request because people waste it so much"! LOL. what a LAME excuse for forgetting! One minute later we heard another waitress ASK if that table wanted bread. SMH. The bread was BY FAR... More

We find there are no issues with this restaurant. The food is OK, the service is good, and the place is clean however there is nothing to write home about either. After a half dozen visits with no issues but nothing particularly appealing either we are unlikely to visit again.
