    We were a couple of out-of-towners who went to Mimosa on a Friday night. There's much to like about it: pleasant staff, somewhat upscale atmosphere but not tony, and an interesting menu. Prices are moderate-plus: $9-13 for salads and appetizers, $25-32 for entrees, $8-13 for wine-by-the glass. For salads we had the greens and grilled kale--both nicely prepared. Entrees were the braised short-ribs and the trout--both very good. Portions were generous. We also ordered a side of the sorghum glazed brussels sprouts, which we enjoyed. For dessert we shared a creme brulee topped with candied orange--a satisfying cap to our meal. Our server was attentive and professional.

    My friends and I ordered cocktails, the hushpuppy appetizer, salmon and flank steak entrees, a beet salad, and a large side of brussel sprouts. The hushpuppy appetizer was a good size and delicious. The salmon entree was also very good, but the portion was too small. Another friend ordered the beet salad and a large side of brussel sprouts. The beet salad was ridiculously small for $9. Thankfully she ordered the large side of brussel sprouts for another $9, but that still wasn't enough to eat. The hostess and waiter were excellent!

    We dined at Mimosa due to it's location to the Knight Theater, we wanted to finish rather quickly then walk across the street for a concert. The waiter (I think Kevin?) did a nice job with the timing of the food, making sure we finished in time. We had the pecan crusted trout, lamb, filet and ribeye - all outstanding. Cheddar mash potatoes - exceptional! The only thing I can suggest as an improvement would be slow down when presenting the specials, the waiter spoke a little too fast for a few in our group (who were elderly). Great meal, we will go back!

    This restaurant alone is almost worth flying back to Charlotte, NC! Our late night reservation was almost ready when we arrived. The food was deliciously fantastic. The restaurant was packed with large groups of diners in town for a conference. Our poor waiter had a table of 19 right next to the table for 2 that we were given. This was not good. Try as he might, there was just too much for him to do. We felt ignored for the most part and thought we'd probably have had better service if we were a part of the big group! We'd definitely go back for the food, but would be very aware of where we were seated next time.

    Have been going here since it opened about 19 years. The ambiance and food are still great. I would tell anyone to go there. It is great for any occasion. We wanted a restaurant where five friends could have a relaxing time, wonderful food and a convenient place to meet. The Mimosa Grill was all that and more.

    We had a late reservation for dinner following an event at the Bank of America Stadium. We did have to wait 15 minutes for a table which was frustrating since we made a reservation. Our server was terrific and the food was fantastic. It's a little difficult for kids but the flatbread appetizer was well received by them.

Was especially impressed by the menu knowledge of our server. Her descriptions of the various items was spot on. We all loved what we chose and hope to go back to Mimossa in the near future!

    Whenever we visit a city I always try to find good restaurants and Mimosa "fit the bill"! It was a Sunday so they were not crowded. Our server was professional, very engaging, and knowledgeable. My husband got the kale caesar salad, which was a little different twist on the usual, very good and the jambalaya, spicy and good! I had the salmon, cooked perfectly, and our son had the pork which he said was very good. The wine list is very reasonable and diverse. Our next visit we would surely return!

    This place wasn't too bad. My wife returned a dish because the chicken had an after taste. And we found a hair in the biscuit. We weren't compensated at all. Not that we were looking for any compensation. But two issues in a restaurant like this one. The meal should've been comped.

    We ordered the pecan crusted trout perfect dish absolutely no complaints! Stuffed hush puppies a must , I ordered a strawberry salad wasn't a fan. Also got the stuffed chicken which I would've enjoyed more without the actual stuffing , the flavor was just too much fennel seed for me. The skin was perfectly crisp which compensated for it being slightly dry. And the chorizo vinergrette made the dish. Pecan pie was divine!

    We heard about Mimosa Grill through Queens feast. It was our first time, thankfully we made reservations the night before and was seated right away. It approximately took about 5 minutes for our waitress to come and ask for drinks. Our first course was a salad, neither my girlfriend or I were impressed, the ingredients didnt taste fresh, and we barely ate even half of the first course. Our waitress noticed this and asked if everything was ok, we responded honestly. Our second course, the trout was brought over by one of the managers, he was nice enough to make sure that we were very happy and enjoyed the rest of the meal. Overall had a good experience, the staff was very understanding and accommodating. Would return again

  • Mimosa Grill Review
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/24/2014
    The atmosphere of mimosa grill was enjoyable. Our appetizers were enjoyable but the main courses were less than expected. Two people at our table ordered filet which was a 10$ up charge and both were ordered as "medium" they were delivered to us nearly "well-done". The waiter was not very apologetic yet arranged for the steaks to be re-cooked. The next steaks that came to the table were essentially "rare" and not edible. The waiter half way apologized yet made no offer to take money off of our check for the dissatisfaction. Shrimp and grits were huge disappointment as well. We waited nearly 20-30 minutes for our checks after dessert yet we were one of only 2-3 tables remaining in the entire restaurant.
