First time in New York stumbled up on this place and couldn't have been better luckier ! There was a guy the owner maybe, who came to our table gave us a little history about where we were and some of the famous things around us. The food was really good ! The spaghetti was fantastic! Huge meatballs! Just the... More

We ate at this restaurant not long ago based on wonderful reviews. However, the food did not meet the high standards we had expected. The salad was mostly iceberg lettuce, almost unheard of in a quality restaurant nowadays. The main dishes were mediocre. However, the bread was tasty. The service was slow and we left less satisfied than we were... More

Read reviews here on TripAdvisor and since we were wiped out from three days of non-stop walking, exploring, we chose to eat just two blocks from our hotel. Mimi's is where real New Yorkers go to eat and be entertained by wonderful piano music and singing. What an atmosphere, lively and upbeat. Can't help but enjoy. Oh...didn't mention that food...

This was our second time celebrating a family event at Mimi's - and again, we loved it! Food was excellent - the team at Mimi's was warm and welcoming and they took great care of us! I recommend it often to people...it's not every day that you find a place with live music (it's a piano bar), great food and... More

We went to Mimi's with some friends while at a meeting in Manhattan. We both had the veal parm; I've had far better in Virginia! Nothing special with the food or the sauce. However, when Chicken Delicious got behind the piano the ordinariness of Mimi's disappeared. It needs to be experienced and is hard to explain!

Real Italian restaurant. Not a tourist destination which I loved. I will definitely make it a regular stop when I am in NY. Prices are excellent especially for NY.

We were visiting family from out of town and got into some Martinis at our hotel early in the night. When it came time to head out to dinner, we were asked what we wanted. We said, "Italian, Piano, Wine and maybe more Martinis..." Well, Mimi's covered all of those bases. We had a great dinner including good jazzed up... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
