I went in for breakfast I had the spinach and cheese crepe with country potatoes. So good. Will try their lunch menu next time.

So because I didn't want to drive into DC for brunch, my boyfriend and I decided to stay local! I'm so glad we did! We just love Mimi's menu. It has whatever you're in the mood for with a New Orleans kick! The Smoked Salmon bennys are sooooo good! We also tried a couple muffins. All in all if you... More

My wife and I took our little niece to Mimis last week and didn't have the best experience. Our server showed up after we had been sitting in the booth after about 5 minutes. Honestly, he looked intoxicated to me. Several times, during our meal, I had to remind him of things we requested. The food was good, however, this... More

We took are parents and rest of the family here for dinner this past week and were disappointed with the slow service...don't know if they were understaff or what. We got our drinks 5 mins. before the salads/appy's arrived. The food was good, even though they just changed their menu (according to the Manager) and some items were dropped and... More

Took my wife for an early mother's day dinner. Luckily we had a BOGO Surf & Turf coupon so we didn't feel fully raped when we received the bill, but still went away shocked that we paid that much for overcooked seafood, steak was fairly good, but it all took at least 40 minutes, after seating, to receive it. This... More

I will not be returning to MiMi's. I came to MiMi's last year, and it was great. However, we went there for Mother's Day this year. I would NOT recommend anyone ever coming here, especially for Mother's Day. The food wasn't great. They had like 10 things on the menu. Our waiter was weird. Our silverware was so dirty and... More

Family dinner for Mother's Day...never again!! Pre selected menu that was not disclosed at time of reservation. Poor food only surpassed by a rude,incompetent and unprofessional waitress (steer clear of the one with tattoos on her neck). WOULD NOT EAT HERE AGAIN EVEN IF IT WERE FREE. ..

The food is safe. So if you are looking for intense flavor don't come here. It's not without flavor - just a lot of safe dishes for dinner. The brie and apples or deviled eggs with a mimosa are good for breakfast. I have been here 3 times. Twice for dinner and once for brunch. Safe for families.

Like the other reviewers said, sometimes the wait for food can be very long. They used to be much better when they initially opened. The food is still pretty good. I like the cobb salad, muffins, breakfast (pancakes, eggs, sausages, frenchtoast, etc). The price is great with BOGO coupon. Location is convenient for most of my friends and I to... More

Food is alright, a bit more rich in calories than it needs to be. Wait staff takes a bit long to come to take order,
