We have eaten at Mimi's a few times - all meal times. Across the board marginal. This time for lunch, before the noon crowd. Service slow at best.. One order totally wrong - ordered a cinnamon roll - received cinnamon bread french toast. ?????

Very friendly service, good food, and great flavor of New Orleans! Best place to stop for breakfast while in Reno. They never disappoint.

On June 7th, I had a very major surgery, which kept me house-bound until July 19th, when I had the opportunity, after two doctor's visits that day, to have dinner "out". We chose Mimi's for its wide range of dishes, hoping to find something compatible with my "recovering condition". I chose their French Pot Roast, and enjoyed one of the... More

We stopped for lunch as we passed through Reno. The staff at this Mimis was very friendly and helpful. My wife ordered a salad with grilled chicken on it. The salad was a bit skimpy. I guess most diners fill up on the bread/muffins the like to offer, but we are gluten free and were not offered anything meeting this... More

Had lunch with a friend there today. They had burgers, sandwiches, craft sandwiches, entrees and everything else you would expect. I had the half-sandwich with the house Caesar and fruit. They allowed the fruit substitution for French fries. The service here is always first rate and the food very good and of high quality. It's a casual setting, so it's... More

My wife and I decided to have breakfast out one morning, and thought that we'd try Mimi's because we hadn't been there in a while. When we first arrived, we both immediately noticed how cool it was in the restaurant. We mentioned it to the hostess and her reply was "Oh, it's always like this." We asked to be seated... More

My friend from Reno was wanting to check this restaurant out, so we stopped in, we had a appetizer and steak. It was either the appetizer or the steak. As soon as I had 3 bites of the steak, I had to go get sick in the bathroom, after I was coming out of the bathroom after 5 minutes of... More

The menu has changed since the last time we ate here. Gone is the hot bread on the table to snack on while waiting for dinner. There is a more European flavor to the menu...as I remember. The service was friendly, but average. I could have used a refill on the coffee, but no big deal. Dinner was delicious. The... More

Went to Mimi's recently after an appointment "in town". A longtime fan of Mimi's and of the Reuben sandwich, I saw Mimi's West Coast Reuben on the menu, and Immediately made my decision. What I expected was a grilled toasted sandwich made with Swiss cheese, pastrami (lots), sauerkraut, and Russian dressing. What I got was a sandwich on toast with... More
