Great find on our last evening in the area - wished we had found it sooner. Food was excellent, large portions so go hungry! Best waitress was Elizabeth, who turned out to have a connection to the same town in MA that some of our group live in - small world! The warm Carrot/Raisin bread is fabulous and we got

We've enjoyed the Mimi's Cafe in Folsom, California, on many occasions. Thus we had high expectations for our Sunday afternoon family dinner here. Service was good, wine list was adequate, and they have a full bar. However, my chicken pot pie had obviously been frozen and reheated - it was not hot. My wife's quiche was the same. Can they...

Been here a few time. Was good but this visit will be the last. The server did well with refills but failed on almost everything else. When I received my meal I made it half way through my beef roast to find the center still frozen. They did try to remake it for me however they wasted my lunch period... More

I should have learned by now but, I think I'll finally be taking Mimi's off my list. I'm surprised that a place like this can survive in what appears to be a prime location. We've been to this location several times and largely had the same experience in terms of the cuisine. *** Decor - Mimi's is a chain that... More

Went for lunch with a co-worker. Never had been here before. I ordered the French Dip and it was spot on. No complaints from me.

It takes a lot for me to write a negative review...that being said we should have left when the hostess told us 40min. wait but ended up waiting longer (75 min.) and the table they sat us at had been available for at least 30 min (we could see it from where we were waiting for a table!) Once we... More

We've eaten here many times in the past (& written positive reviews), but had a bad experience today. The entire attitude of the staff appeared to be "off". The hostess did not seem to know what she was doing & acted as if we were bothering her. She told us the wait would be 30 minutes-even though they were not... More

The place was a little cold. But the bread was great... we always love it. Dinner was delish. 3 salmon and one mussel dish. Good services, good food, good drinks.
