My friends and I hadn't been to a Mimi's for several years and things have changed, not all good. The friendly greeter at the door was very welcoming and the server was friendly.

We arrived late, about 9:30pm, but we received a warm welcome at the door and excellent service. Our food was fresh and served quickly and hot. Both entrees were delicious. My birthday would begin at midnight. It was a couple hours early, but Mimi's delivered birthday treats on the house complete with a serenade of happy birthday to you. The... More

Located in the Bridgepointe Mall, Mimi's is separate from all the big box stores and has lots of parking. Friendly greeting at the door when we arrived around 1 PM on a Saturday. Restaurant was less than half full so we got a large booth and were quickly served. We had the Chopped Chinese Salad as well as the sandwhich/Caesar... More

I didn't feel like eating a big breakfast, so on their menu, I saw French Toast and didn't see the word 'GRAND' next to it. When she asked how I... More

We were very pleased with Mimi's. The food and service were wonderful. We had a small family "reunion" of 6 people and were seated in a small, private room. Could not have had a better experience.

Comfortable chain to revisit wherever they are. This one has ample parking. A nicely decorated French-themes set of rooms, easy and interesting on the eye. Three for lunch at 12:30, but plenty of room, comfortable booth, air conditioning set a little low. Should have gotten my fleece out of the car. One order of brioche and roasted brie came with...
