My family and I chose Mimi‘s café for our New Year’s Eve dinner and to spend $140, it fell short. First the food, my wife ordered the burger it was okay, one of my daughters ordered the chicken and waffles and she really liked them, my other daughter ordered shrimp pasta and it was okay, I ordered a ribeye steak with El gratin potatoes and the steak was overcooked and needed seasoning even with the herb butter on top it still needed salt and pepper. The potatoes looked like they were from the day before, they looked grayish. The waitress was nice but she was about to get off her shift and she was forgetful and was rushing us because she wanted her tip before she left. The place only had four tables of people, you would have thought they would give great service to get a bigger tip, just saying.
It had been years since I had a French onion soup from Mimi's. Stopped in and added a Jambalaya and pasta to it. Both items were enjoyed. Soup good if not quite what I remembered. Was sat immediately and service was responsive. Restaurant was not busy. Walked away with a little pricey feel. For my self -- Jambalaya $20 -- Soup $4 -- White Russian $12 -- +tax +tip, $46 Won't bother with the drink next time as it just wasn't worth the price point. Would return again, but won't hurry back.
The pasta here is delicious and the portions are sized pretty well. It wasn't too busy when we got here, so there was plenty of seats and the inside is decorately cutely for Halloween, family friendly. Darlene gave us wonderful service.
It’s been a while since I’ve come to Mimi’s but tonight I decided to give it a chance and was pleasantly surprised! We were quickly greeted by our wonderful server Darlene who took excellent care of us. She recommended the tomato basil and shrimp ravioli which was absolutely delicious! I will definitely be returning soon :)
I give 5 Stars because the food was good. Our server was not nice and she had a lot of tables to serve by her self. We ask for extra glasses orange juice and she didn't bring them. The muffins are fresh. Hope they can hired more servers for bringing drinks.
