“Ok food, poor service”
Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

First let me say that our waitress was friendly but clearly had too many tables to wait. They need to have a runner to fill drinks and clear plates. Very very slow service. Had only one refill in over an hour. Food was ok, what you expect at a chain. Refrigerator had been delivered and sat right in the lobby where you wait for a table. The wooden blinds are broken in places and need to be replaced. Probably will not be back.

“Great Little Restaurant”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Have never been disapointed with food or service here. You have got to try the soups. Tomato Bisque and French Onion every day, Clam Chowder on Friday. You just cannot go wrong eating here. The employees are very friendly and efficient. The seating has always been very comfortable and when the weather is good, seating is available outdoors on the patio. A good value for lunch or dinner.

“Gyp because price on menu was not in computer.”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

First bad experience at Mimi's in Fresno, Ca. I ordered a dish that the menu said was $12.99. When we got the bill it was listed as $14.49. When we questioned the waitress, she said they have to charge us that because the other was not on the computer. When we told the manager on duty, he told us he would call IT. No other offer. This is wrong. If this happens again, the waitress's tip will be shorted by the difference.

“Very good”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

food is comforting there, staff friendly and prompt. I believe breakfast is excellent and lunch is very good. Dinner is good, but I feel there are better options near by.
