“Fantastic French Fare!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

Excellent French dishes. Very fresh vegetables and fish. Duck was excellent! Grouper was prepared with light breading--great! Steak and salmon were also excellent choices. (great desserts!)
This is a tiny restaurant so be sure to make reservations

“Hard to make a choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

Six of us went to this small French bistro. Mimi's daughter greets everyone personally. By 6:00 PM every table was filled. Menu is amazing: 3 of us had the best Dover Sole ever; another had the duck, anothr the pork shank and another the pork chop special. Rave reviews on all the entrees. Need reservatians for sure! We were there on a Tuesday evening.

“C'est tres bon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

A previous review complained that they could not get lunch served when arriving only a few minutes before the posted 3 o'clock closing time. Also the review stated that this restaurant is located on a six lane freeway. Presumably they meant Pine Ridge, which of course anyone should know is not a 'six lane freeway' or in fact a freeway at all, but rather just a suburban boulevarde. Take that review for what it is worth.
Our experience was excellent. My wife and I dined there for the first time and enjoyed a truly delightful evening. We both had the special pea soup...very tasty but could have been little warmer. My wife had the pork shank which was first class. I had the special cod which was excellent save that again it could have been a little warmer. For desert we had the chocolate mousse , which was to die for. The coffee arrived with a small complimentary port....what a nice gesture. The place was busy and bustling. The service was proficient. A very nice neighbourhood restaurant...we will be back.

“Wonderful little place. You'll love Mimi and her cooking. Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

A short time ago Mimi owned one of the finest French Restaurants in Florida, on the bay here in Naples. She decided to slow down but not retire and the result is "Mimi's Cooking." Mimi herself is a total delight. Her cooking is wonderful. I cannot imagine either getting less than a perfect score from anyone. Her place is a favorite of my wife and myself and we recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great place to eat. Mimi has a way to make you feel not only at home but very special. We love it.
