“So so food!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

If you like the greasy spoon you'll love this place. Not recommended for heart healthy foods.
Service sucks.

“A good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

The food was very good. The service was not up to par. There were long waits between server visits and it eventually frustrated a bit, but when there was a concern, the server made it right and all ended well.

“Best high-quality in Santee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Mimi's is the best high-quality restaurant in Santee. It has a wonderful selection of all of the best types of cooking, with great tastes, and superior sauces. Try the special pot roast! The ambiance is first class, the service exceptional, and the prices are reasonable. Try the fish, especially the Salmon, and also try some of their yummy desserts. Mimi's is my favorite restaurant in Santee.

“O.K”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

My 19 year old daughter for her birthday wanted to go here for dinner. We got the menus, all of us were looking at the them, We look around not many people here.
It was a Wednesday night. The dinners all changed. They do not have the dinners with the petite deserts any more with you meals.We had to pay extra for a salad. What we all had was good. The waitress service was great. I do not think we will come back again. I am sorry it is not the way it was. If you need to know the dinner was $20.00 a person.
