Food was great, and personalities were, too. Felt welcomed. Pasta dishes great, chicken Marsala great, too. Host even picked up on the fact that it was my daughter's birthday. Not only was she treated to cheesecake, but she was serenaded by the house pianist - a friendly (if slightly eccentric) fellow who came and chatted with us, making my kids... More

You know your in NYC when you dine at Mimi's. The view of very active Beekman Hill with the sounds of the piano and tastes of great food. This all comes together because of friendly professional staff. This place is fun too.

We scored a table in the window so we could people watch and we were next to the piano where a guy was happily playing away to his friends more than the restaurant - but it was entertaining. Service was a little slow initially but picked up when we ordered our food. The portions were big, there was no way... More

A bartender at our hotel suggested we visit Mimi's to experience "Chicken Delicious". We didn't eat dinner there, but spent about 4 hours being entertained by everyone in the bar. Such a warm and friendly crowd, our bartender, Laurie was such a sweetheart. Definitely worth checking this place out!

Didn't eat here but was recommended for an entertaining time. It didn't disappoint. I'm guessing family owned, and they make you feel at home immediately. We were there for 2 different piano players, one was more traditional and the other very eccentric.... And fun! They get the guests involved and singing. Small but worth it.

I've been travelling to NYC for business 4 or 5 times a year for more than 20 years and ALWAYS pay a visit at least once every trip! Food is great, always well cooked and the staff very friendly, the piano players vary but always entertaining! As I usually travel alone for business, in most restaurants the tables offered for...
