    Everyone knows what Mimi’s is like. Great for families or 60-100+ year olds. My Mom absolutely enjoyed spending Mothers Day there.

    Went for mother's day, it was very busy and they were having a hard time managing reservations. But overall, we didn't wait long, service was good and the food was very good as well. Try their muffins, they are the best.

    Despite having a reservation and being punctual we waited over 30 minutes to be seated as did many others. That's to be forgiven since it was Mother's Day. Service was slow and our server was less than attentive which I attribute to the kitchen being slammed and management not calling in sufficient servers. It took a long time to get initial service and a long time to receive our food but the quality was first rate. Not easy to do when they're that busy but they pulled it off. We've eaten here before when it was less hectic and it was very good. Most of the flaws noted were due to an overworked staff on a very busy holiday Sunday. We'll go back again but when it's more calm.

    Came here for Mother’s day and it was packed. We waited 30 minutes despite having reservations. We also waited over 45 minutes for our food. The kitchen is either understaffed or management needs training. We ordered omelettes and muffins, the server forgot to bring the muffins and had to be reminded. Not to mention he could have asked if we wanted to have them with our coffee since the wait for our food was so long. The lady who appeared to be the manager in charge was not very considerate or courteous, removing a chair from our table without asking or acknowledging the fact that she was going to take it while we were seated mid-meal. Thank goodness the food was fresh, otherwise it left more to be desired.

    Everyone was so lovely - even the other patrons! It was my first time and I’ll be back. The ambiance reminded me of comfortable and low key places I used to go to as a kid in my small hometown - which is very hard to find in Irvine. I highly recommend the roast potatoes with peppers and onions!

    Generally, we really like Mimi's. A very pleasant and relaxing decor. For some reason this time, we were seated in the bar so not quite as nice, but OK. The food is usually very good, and the Tuscan Chicken and Hibachi Salmon were excellent, but the Ribeye was filled with tough tissue and hard to eat. The baked potato and spinach sides made up for it, a bit. Based on past visits, as well as the other two dishes last night, the ribeye experience would not keep us from going back to Mimi's. or from recommending it to friends. Just wouldn't order the ribeye.

    More like MehMeh's. Food was decent quality, but nothing I couldn't cook on my own at home. This felt like I was back in Marie Calendar's again.

    My first time going there and I was not satisfied with the quality of food! Or service! The chicken with artichoke pasta was not that great. The chicken was hard and chewy, and it reminded me of canned chicken! And it was flavorless! It's a bit expensive for the low quality of food!
