Decent dinner

I've been here before for their great breakfasts but this is my first dinner visit. The French onion soup was perfect and the chicken crepes were pretty good. My companion had a nice salmon plate. Bread served was tasty and decent wine selection as well.

We had three different ages and all three found what they wanted on the menu. Food was great, service was timely and the restaurant was super clean. Can't wait to go back.

Unprofessional conduct of service. The manager expressed rude behavoir towards my family and other customers. The restaurant was mostly empty, but it still took almost an hour for a simple order of salads and sandwiches. The manager gave pathetic excuses for the actions, and then angrily stormed off. In other words, bad service, the manager needs to be educated on... More

We were greeted by a friendly hostess. The decor was good. I had the ham, egg, cheese crepe with roasted potatoes. I think food and price quality was good. I will go back to try the dinners.

Enjoyed breakfast here this weekend - went with 2 friends and all 3 of us had different eggs benedict ... I had the one with potatoes instead of an english muffin. The hollandaise was delicious and the eggs cooked perfectly to my liking. spacious dining room, fast and friendly service, clean restaurant .,, I would return for sure!

Mimi's seems like a nice place but in fact it is a crappy chain restaurant that serves frozen pre prepared entree's that are heated in microwaves. I found that out the hard way. I wanted a steak for dinner and I should have known better because it apparently is a dish to be avoided because their cooks can't get a... More

On a recent stay in Reno, we came across this very good restaurant/cafe and were delighted with the tasty food, the very friendly service and the comfortable, casual environment. We were seated in the dining area decorated with a New Orleans theme and inquired as to the origin, thinking the owners might be from Louisiana. Actually, the owners are from... More

Breaded slices chicken, burned to a dark brown crust in burned grease. Yum! Well that seems to be Mimi's version of Chicken Parmesan. Yuk!

My wife and I are two retirees, who eat at home 90% of the time, and treat ourselves to a restaurant meal on occasion, usually when some other reason takes us out of the house (doctor appointment, meeting, etc.). Mimi's presents us with a great combination of features. Mimi's is open for all three meal times - breakfast, lunch, and... More
