“Mint Julep”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

My wife and I had a date night at Mint Julep and the food and atmosphere were excellent. The customer service was excellent, the food was excellent, and the owner made a stop to each guest to ensure we were having a great time. We loved it.

“Good but pricey and small portions.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Really nice bistro, well decorated, comfortable and classy. BUT bring your wallet. If you want a "nice experience" you can expect to pay over $100 for a couple for drinks, appetizer and dinner. Portions are small also. (Or should I say controlled). If you have money to spend and would like something quiet, classy and casual this is a great place. It's also located near several wine bars so you can bounce around from place to place easily if you are out and about.

Menu is a little pricey. But all of the food was really good. I had the rocket salad with chicken - delicious!! Husband had the BBQ chicken pizza - very good. Service was outstanding. Would definitely come again!

“Fabulous Food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

We have dined at Mint Julep several times in the past and recently had another outstanding experience. Food is always top notch and the service is professional. Would recommend to anyone - it's conveniently located off I20, which makes it a great stop on the way home!
