Nice late dinner

Stopped by for a late dinner after a show. Food was good and service was friendly. Piano was a little loud but we were able to sit across the restaurant and were able to talk.

Our waitress was excellent. I was celebrating my birthday and the owner gave us free drinks to help with the celebration. The Calamari was my favorite dish. However, my veal was tender,moist and delicious. We enjoyed the piano player and he even let me sing while he played. We will return again when back in the city!!

I was staying with friends one block away and dined here twice for dinner. Pasta portions were large, tasty and filling. Service was good, piano bar in full swing one evening & people watching out the sidewalk windows was classic New York! Nice spot.

Great and party place to go at night. The piano player was a real show man, and the food, just fantastic. Once my husband has some dietary restrictions, the staff was very kind and prompt to adapt whatever was necessary from the menu to our needs. Fantastic atmosphere and value.

After a late night working a fundraiser we went out for a bite to eat, and came across Mimi's and we're glad we did. It was a pianobar, but the music wasn't loud enough to drown a conversation or ruin a great meal. We at and drank all under the caring eye of the hostest. We had such a great... More

We found this restaurant during a 2 night stay at the doubletree metropolitan hotel. All I can say is it's just how I imagined and Italian restaurant in New York would be. Fast service with a good choice of dishes. We knew we were in for a good meal when the waitress was greeting people who had dined there before.... More

The food is well cooked and well served by friendly efficient staff. Prices are reasonable for New York. In the evenings there is a Pianist playing. Just the sort of restaurant you... More

Mimi's was at the end of the street our hotel was on so made it the perfect choice for an Italian meal during our vacation. The menu was varied but my wife and I made the correct choices. Veal for me and lasagne for her. Delicious!!!! Nice house wine too, attentive service and a knowledgeable maitre d / manager added... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
