Mimi's Cafe is a great place to eat. – I have been there several times. The Waiters were excellent. Clam Chowder was best I have ever had. It is a classy place to eat and I would recommend them to a friend. And, No, I do not own stock in Mimi's Cafe and I do not know any one who works there personally. It was simply a nice place to eat.
Worst food and Service Ever ! – I took my daughters, and boyfriend there for a special birthday dinner for one of my daughters. None of the food came as it was supposed to...they left gravy off my daughters turkey dinner, and when asked waitress for gravy, she brought a cup of beef gravy !
Another entree should have had scallops in it...NONE to be found. The waitress was only there to put the food on the table and never even brought . Every order had something wrong with it, so the waitress made herself scarce...except to give the bill.
I BEG you do not go here !!! HUGE waste of money, time, and food was NOT good !
Service,Management – Service is poor, Management spends more time in the back of the house then the front. Servers spend more time socializing with one another then they do with their guest. I am amazed this place is still in business
Good food, mediocre service – We get seated quickly. After that, service is slow and seems disorganized. Sometimes worse than others. The menu is good and extensive. Pricing is good. Food is tasty and the staff is fairly friendly. The only reason we sometimes hesitate to go here is that we don't want to put up with the slow delivery of our food.
gross and discusting – Management sees rude employees and not do anything about it. When customers complain to management.Yells at customers they are lying,try to start fights,and not volunteer to do anything about it.Employees brush food crumbs off tables onto the floor and not clean it up.Employees rude to female customers tables.Not volunteer to give menu,wait on,food,drink,silverware,napkins,bill,drinking glasses.Give food and drink ,try to run away. Give bill run away and not come back.Rush to get rid of,expect tip,slow to wait on and not busy,interrupt,talk back rude,give rude looks,try to start fights,put finger in food,overcharge bill and bring order not correct and not volunteer to correct it,give social friends free food,talk on cell telephone while wait on customers,yell at customers not tip,give rude looks for customers not tips,complain other customers are tip stingy.Eat food while waiting on customers,and employees are not paying for their food and drink,Look otherway while talking to female customers,walk away while talking to female guests, and walk away and not come back. Female guests have to ask them to come back and do work.Not want to write down menu and did it anyway.
Always A Great Choice – I have had breakfast, lunch and dinner at Mimi's and have always been very pleased. They have a nice variety, good atmosphere and very generous portions. As a matter of fact, for us girls, you could easily split a dish. Whenever someone asks me for a dining suggestion, I always send them to Mimi's first.
Not impressed – We recently tried the new Cary location. After a day of shopping we stopped to eat around 4:30 - not usually a hectic time for retsuarants. There were hardly any patrons but our waitress was frazzled/forgetful, and some of our food was cold. My son had the chicken strips (kids menu) and they seemed ... old (dry and rubbery). We heard wonderful things about this restaurant from family in California so we couldn't wait to try it. We won't be going back.
Unexpected Disappointment – My husband and I went to the Cary location. I entered excited, but departed disappointed. I ordered the "surf & turf," my food, steak and shrimp, was cold, however the salad & breads were tasty & the sweet tea wasn't sweet enough. If not for the salad and breads, I would have left hungry. The wait-staff was somewhat, lazy. We will not be returning to this restaurant.
Work Out The Kinks!! – Not impressed by this place AT ALL! We went with some friends on a Friday night and knew there would be a wait but to our surprise we were seated rather quickly. Boy, was it noisy!!! We didn't see any waitstaff for a good 5 minutes. When we did, we ordered a bottle of wine. Didn't see waitstaff again for another 15 minutes. We asked where our wine was, and could we possibly have some bread at the table. Didn't see waitstaff for another 10 minutes. We ordered our dinner. Dinner came in another 20 minutes,followed by the bread and the wine. All in all, the waitstaff was incredibly slow and unenthusiastic! Food was just okay. The chicken ceasar salad needs a bit more chicken fellows. It was ALL lettuce. Will not be returning!
Don't waste your money – I've eaten at Mimi's a couple of times, and I have to say that both experiences have been horrible. Their waitstaff doesn't seem the least bit concerned about whether you are there or not. The food is mediocre, and it is certainly not worth what you pay for it. After the first bad experience (my food tasted like metal, so I sent it back, only to wait another 30 minutes for a dish that came out cold), I decided to give the restaurant another chance, but the second experience was even worse than the first. I certainly would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Save your money and take it somewhere where the staff and management act like they care.
