Diner Reviews
  • "What can I say but delicious! A friend wanted to try out the brunch so off we went. Once seated we were told to go ahead and enjoy the buffet. Every last thing looked appetizing so I tried a bit of most things. Bacon, eggs, hash browns, string beans, cheese and crackers, tarts, salmon, you name it. They even had mac and cheese! Everything was so good. My one criticism is that they also provide a small menu at the table from which you can order a la carte (in addition to the buffet and included in the price). Never having been there before, we didn't know that an our waitress did not explain that fact. Late into our dining experience she asked if we wanted anything from the menu and then we realized what an opportunity we had missed."

  • "My wife returned from a five-day business trip, to the mess of reconstruction at the Charlotte Airport. Mimosa provided good food and great service on a very slow Sunday evening. The jambalaya recipe was just right with good Cajun flavors. Only wish there more lighter options, including vegetarian choices, oddly minimal in a restaurant that brags on its fresh seasonal fare."

  • "The bacon and sausage on the buffet were not cooked sufficiently...we had to request our server bring us both...also, the food was average at best....the service was very good and the atmosphere was fine...however, the food was not worth $25 a person..."

  • "The menu selection was very diverse offering something for everyone. From apps to dessert, everyone in our group was very pleased with our experience. Road warriors from both coast enjoyed the meal and would recommend this restaurant for a business dinner."

  • "Mimosa Grill is great for Uptown Charlotte employees. It's within walking distance of our offices. It's also a great spot for a special occasion - anniversary, date, etc. The menu is Southern-infused. I enjoy the shrimp & grits and crab cake appetizers. (Both should be offered as full-portion entrées, too - so delicious!). Beware of the lobster macaroni cheese appetizer. It's so heavy that you might not have room for your main course. It would be better to share this appetizer."

  • "This was my first visit to Charlotte and after researching every restaurant in the area, I was glad I made the right choice for a nice dinner on the town with my mother. Everything on the menu was terrific, the wine list had a nice variety, and our server was excellent. She took time to go over some of the favorites and answered all of our questions. I had the special which was the local tile fish with a succotash and it was fantastic. I love to find a restaurant that uses local farm/sea to table ingredients. I only wish there would have been more lobster in the lobster mac and cheese, but it was still delicious. I will definitely visit Mimosa Grill again!"

  • "The food was great for Sunday Brunch on Fathers Day. The shrimp and grits were the favorite of the day. We may just make this a tradition because my dad loved the food so much!!"

  • "We had a very relaxing dinner at Mimosa Grill. It was pleasant to sit outside and enjoy the fountains near by and to hear the sound of the Charlotte symphony from down the street. My husband and I both enjoyed our meals-full of flavor and not too much food. The white asparagus with strawberries and greens was very tasty as was my husband's beet salad. The steak we chose was flavorful, but a little undercooked. For cap off the dinner, we ordered a pecan pie which was served warm with gelato--yum, yum."

  • "We stumbled on to Mimosa Grill based on reviews but somehow we didn't realize that their Sunday BRUNCH is SPECTACULAR. The food is a diverse cross section of both breakfast and lunch food and really great flavors. The service was good (not great, but it was a serve yourself brunch after all!) And when it was finally time to order mimosas (we still have blue laws here in NC), they were really good and quite inexpensive. We will absolutely come to Mimosa Grill again for another meal and it will probably be for yummy brunch."

  • "We have eaten here on four trips to Charlotte. The location is very convenient to many downtown attractions, and parking garages are within easy walking distance. The tables are nicely spread out so that you can have a private conversation but there were also several large groups accommodated. Excellent selection of wines by the glass, including some unusual choices, as well as a very fine list of wines by the bottle, at reasonable markups. The food is "new Southern": regional produce and seafood, along with the meat and poultry dishes; there are some vegetarian selections as well. The Southern influence comes through as well in the warm biscuits with butter. Desserts are small, rich and intensely flavored; the coffee is excellent."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Atmosphere is very upscale as is the menu; very local oriented.we were dressed casual as we were going to the baseball game. About half the restaurant looked to be doing the same, while the other half was dressy and celebrating life events. All fit in well and were treated equally."

  • "This was our first time dining at Mimosa Grill. We had a party of 6, including two children. The service and food were wonderful, and although there is no kid's menu per se, the server was very accommodating in having a flatbread cheese pizza made for one of the children. The appetizers of pulled pork and stuffed hush puppies were tasty. We ordered a variety of entrees, including the pork chop, chicken, fish, and steak, and all were delicious! The crème brulee with a candied orange peel garnish was a yummy finale. I would highly recommend this restaurant for dinner or any special occasion."

  • "Everything was delicious. The fennel sausage pizza was outstanding. Steak was smoky and charred -- delectable. Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, and loaded mashed potatoes all had an extra something to make them special and memorable."

  • "Beet salad awesome, crab cakes so salty couldn't finish. Portions are perfect, not too large. Dessert selection disappointing. Only banana creme brûlée did not have nuts. Had the pecan pie, it was so hot the first bite seriously burned my mouth. Server didn't warn but the interior was steaming. Filling tasted flat, pecans tasted old. Have dined here numerous times before and had exceptional food. This visit will make me rethink returning."

  • "Visited for dinner last Sat 4/19 and the meal was absolutely fabulous. Definitely one of the best meals of the year. My husband had the lamb...great! I had the stuffed chicken which was good as well. The stuffed hush puppies are a must! We are already planning our next reservation for Brunch :)"

  • "Every time I am in Charlotte on business, I try to find a reason to eat at Mimosa grill. I've been there dozens of times and it's always great. I had the lobster Mac and Cheese at a business lunch. I wasn't even that hungry and I scarfed every bit of it. Wow!!! Was that good."

  • "Very nice menu, plenty of good wines by the glass, helpful with special diets and food allergies, sensitive to getting out in time to go to a nearby show. Beet salad and Mac and cheese are awesome! Shrimp and grits was adapted to be Gluten free! Excellent wait staff."

  • "Service was prompt and she continued to check in with our table throughout the lunch. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Lunch was suburb and delivered surprisingly swift considering the complexity of the dishes. One of us order the fish special, the other Shrimp/Grits. We tasted each others meals - both were home runs. Beautifully presented, lots of flavor yet nothing overpowered the dish. Yumminess through and through. I need to check them out for dinner. I'm already looking forward to making a reservation :)"

  • "We found the food to be heavily salted. The beet salad and crab cakes were quite good but it was all downhill after that. The lobster Mac and cheese was salty runny cheese. All the vegetables were salty. Everything tasted the same. The server was attentive but never really asked "How is everything" and we never said anything. For that kind of money I want to experience a pleasant evening and not deal with the hassle and drama of complaining about food. I do hope this was an off night and not the usual but for that kind of money we will not return. There are so many other restaurants out there that do gourmet southern food well."

Hot, fresh, delicious, and great selection (without being overwhelming!). Breakfast foods, FABULOUS Shrimp & Grits station, carving station, lunch items, breakfast pastries, and desserts. - "Small Plates" menu of cooked to order items such as omelets, benedicts, and french toast. Order one or sample them all! They also have a quiche of the day. Tapas items are included with the buffet price. - Value for the price. WORTH. EVERY. PENNY. I've already made reservations for Mother's Day!"
