    Mint really seems to make a point not offering the same fare in the same tradition as others. While the menu is not vast it is quite diverse but definitely enough for those that are not adventurous. The DUCK nachos are TRuLY worth the visit alone! I have never ordered duck as a meal, not on my list of fave proteins. I will NOT dine their without sharing this huge appetizer. I've never seen anything like them anywhere i've lived. And i've lived a few places. Thanks Mint.

    I ordered the chicken and waffles and hamburger minis. The burgers were very dry and the syrup that was on the chicken and waffles had an overpowering alcohol taste that I later found out was Bourbon.

    Dined on 6/15/2014
    We dined at Mint this past Sunday evening because it was one of the only "Nicer" restaurants open on Sunday for dinner. Out of our party of six, four received food that was only warm, and one of those was a ribeye, requested med/rare but served black and blue. It's entirely possible that this was due to the day of the week; Few people were in the restaurant, many of those that were there had small children with them. Perhaps the "A" game wasn't being brought. But, that being the case, maybe the restaurant shouldn't stay open on Sunday.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 6/6/2014
    Food was great (blackened salmon and greens were the best I have ever had!). Salad was also very good. Dessert was way too sweet and we all expected a little more refined taste for this nice of an establishment (items were banana pudding and bread pudding). Sitting was a little awkward and close to other diners but we were located on a busy corner where staff was constantly coming/going to kitchen so make sure to ask for a more private spot. Waitress although very friendly did not keep drinks refilled quickly enough and it wasn't that busy - and the margaritas were very generic with little alcohol. We should have chosen wine - our mistake. Would dine here again for sure just based on the great food!

    I've been to Mint quite a few times, but won't be going back. Went on a Friday night at 7 and there were diners at only 4 tables! Our server was HORRIBLE. We had to ask 2 other servers for drink refills and once we ordered, it was exactly 1.5 hours until we got our entrees!!

    I found Mint while searching for a place near my hotel. I asked several friends their opinion and they responded with praise. The service was very good. The food was prepared well and the ingredients were high quality. I would recommend Mint as a reasonably priced, well above average restaurant to visit if you are in the vicinity.

    We went specifically for the Bubbles Bar (a one-price all-you-can-drink Champagne/fruit/fruit juice bar served at Sunday Brunch). We arrived at 12:15 pm and were told that they were sold out. There was a table of women nearby us who were drinking their mimosas and such. The waiter said there was only one bottle of bubbly left in the whole restaurant. The bartender said there was none. The women at the other table were told there were 11 bottles left. We were not even allowed to order a glass of champagne from the menu (thinking that if there were one bottle left in the place, we could just have a glass). They apologized, but it seems crazy to advertise this for Sunday Brunch and be sold out that soon.

    I took my wife to Mint for Valentines Day for a nice romantic dinner. When we tried to order our appetizers, they didn't have half of what was on the menu. We ended up ordering the calamari. For the main course, my wife ordered the flounder and I ordered the filet. When the calamari came out, it was a bit on the greasy side but still edible. When our dinners came out, my wife's dinner looked good and it tastes pretty good. My steak, which I ordered medium, came out well done and was charred on the outside. I sent the steak back. When the waiter finally brought out a new, it was seared on the outside and completely raw on the inside. So I ild the waiter, don't worry about trying to fix it now since my wife was already done with her dinner.

    I took my wife to Mint for Valentine's Day for a special occasion. We were both very satisfied with the service and the food. We started off with some sweet chili chicken bites and they were not to sweet or hot (flavor wise). We both had the pork tenderloin over sweet potatoes. The sweet potatoes were perfect and that's coming from someone who is not fond of them! For desert we split beignets and they were the best I have ever had! I highly recommend Mint, even when it can get pricy.

    NolaBelle
    Dined on 2/8/2014
    Mint is a beautiful restaurant, but the focus is clearly on the atmosphere and not the food. They are so very close to excellent, but miss on the minor details and a couple of big culinary ones. I recently had brunch and these are my thoughts. The bubble bar is great! The begniets are good, but the sauce is served in plastic cups. The chese biscuits are either packaged or overworked and cooked far in advance. The bacon should be cooked longer. The chicken and biscuit entree should be served with more than a couple of chicken tenders. The grits are absymal and need to be completely reworked. Big miss on the finer points of dining keep this place from being excellent, it is very dissapointing.

    The experience was not good... The waiter took the orders, then almost an hour later he comes back and says we only have two potatoes. Some of the food was burnt and tough to chew... The menu online is completely wrong, some of the entrees shown online were not on the menu... The waiter stated when asked about a certain entree.."oh that menu hasn't been updated in over a year"

    We were there for brunch. I had an omelet. It came with hash brown potatoes and nothing else: not even biscuits or toast. My wife had the mint breakfast which came with one biscuit. She ask for jelly or jam. The only kind they have is pepper jelly. Will try it for lunch and then decide if it stays on my list or is written off.

    The food, service, table and Christmas decorations were very nice. It would have been nice to have some low-level Christmas music in the background, or jazz piano or something. That's the only recommendation that I have. Great for a lunch with friends, nice table, good service, good menu and food. Highly recommend.
