Decided to have lunch and what a great decision!! Started with the Mimosa tea, which was so delicious and refreshing. It was non-alcoholic and just added greatness to the email. Lunch consisted of Deviled Eggs, Low Country Shrimp n' Grits and their Iron Skillet Scottish Salmon. Talk about DELICIOUS!!! I cant wait to go back and indulge in the dinner menu. Thanks for a great lunch!!

A friend and I went to Mimosa Grill before a Panthers game. I highly recommend making a reservation beforehand. They feature a $24 buffet that was excellent. Several proteins to choose from including shirmp, eggs, prime rib, and salmon (smoked and oven roasted). I loved the shrimp and grits and the eggs were definitely fresh, not boxed. They also featured $3 Mimosas which were excellent and not at all watered down completely with orange juice. Our waitress was attentive and kept our glasses full all morning. Mimosa Grill is a short walk to the North and East gates of Bank of America Stadium. Overall, it was the best way to start the day!

I wanted a nice brunch before boarding my flight back home and gave this place a try due to their high ratings. Overall dining experience was great. I sat at the bar and while there was nothing that my server failed to do, he was more focused on providing prompt service throughout and did not bother introducing himself at any point. Had their crabs eggs bene dish and while it was pretty tasty overall, the crab cake mix was a bit too heavy for me. Apparently, it is a Charlotte staple that has been in operation for over 25 years and I plan to return to try their other dishes.

We went for brunch the food was amazing. Much better than we expected. The grits and shrimp tasted the best, the walnut encrusted french toast was to die for. The variety of food was outstanding. The quality of the buffet food was unbelievable. I almost couldn’t believe I was eating off a buffet. Only an omelet station and flavored mimosa would have made this a better experience.

I have been to Mimosa Grill in the past for the brunch, which is amazing. But this time we decided to go here during restaurant week for a date night. I had a salmon dish that was perfectly cooked and delicious. For our starters I had the pimento cheese dip with hushpuppies, which was a great southern dish, I loved that the pimento cheese was served in a small mason jar for a little bit more of that southern touch. My boyfriend had the meatballs appetizer and those were very flavorful with amazing sauce and crusty bread. The deserts left a little to be desired. The peach cobbler was mostly peach with very little cobbler, which was pretty disappointing. I had the pecan pie with ameretto ice cream, which was good but nothing to write home about. Overall we had a very nice experience. The restaurant has very attentive staff, nice temperature, good lighting, and excellent ambiance. I will definitely return.

We had a time that we needed to leave for a show and our food and drinks did not arrive in time even though we were told that we would be out of there in time. To be fair we lost track of time too. Also, it was the Queen's feast. My salad which was watermelon and feta was good, and my husband got tomato bisque which was fine but not great. I got chicken which was fried and overcooked and dry. It was gigantic served on a piece of white bread spread with honey. My dessert which was pecan pie was served round and was kind of like a hockey puck. I am not sure if because we had to get it to go, part of the dessert was maybe missing. I think it may have been served with ice cream if we got it there. However, the pie part really wasn't good. One thing that was really spectacular was the biscuits. They brought them to the table with some kind of honey butter and I couldn't stop eating them. My husband said his tuna was fine. I rarely go out to eat, so it is disappointing when the food isn't good. I actually never write reviews. I think restaurants can have bad nights but I would think that uptown you would find restaurants of better quality. The server seemed frazzled, so maybe something was going on in the kitchen. You never really know where the breakdown is. I wonder if the Queens Feast made it busier than expected.

My favorite meal at Mimosa Grill is the Mountain Trout. I always get the Trout a few weeks ago it was taken off the dinner menu. However the manager was still able to provide it upon my request. This past weekend during restaurant week I found out it was not on the menu. It was very disappointing as I'm so accustom to ordering that meal. In addition I also bragged about it. So it was unfortunate that it was not on the menu nor was there any in house.

Business lunch reservation was for 11:30 am- party of 5. Food took over an hour. Had to ask the server a couple of times to check. Think he probably forgot to put the order in. When he realized we were put off, he just stopped paying attention to our table (empty glasses). Had to rush thru lunch then he was nowhere to be found when we needed to pay and rush out. Didn’t comp anything or even apologize for the wait. Food was fine, but don’t think I’ll be bringing clients back anytime in the future.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a special meal. The hush puppies (made with rock shrimp, crayfish, and leeks) were a great choice for appetizer, partnered with the charcuterie board. The Beef Tenderloin Filet served with grilled fingerlings and roasted mushrooms was over-the-top delicious and the cocktail menu knocked the meal out of the park. One of the top ten dining experiences of my life. Great service, a comfortable setting, and WONDERFUL food. Please visit if you are able.

We arrived early for our Father's Day celebration and the staff was most accommodating in seating us after a very short wait. The service was more than outstanding as our waitress frequently returned to our table to ascertain our needs, if any, and always with a pleasant smile. The menu was a buffet suitable for vegetarian's, seafood lovers, and those who required a more substantial southern cuisine such as shrimp and grits (to die for), mac and cheese, bacon, and/or biscuits with gravy. My party loved the variety of sweetbreads, pastries, fresh fruit, fresh cooked vegetables, tossed salad, shrimp on ice, smoked salmon with toppings of your choice on the side, and more. There was an array of small deserts including cobbler, pecan tarts, and chocolate covered strawberries. We have dined at Mimosa for more than fifteen years and the food has been consistently amazing. Your chef outdid himself with this creative menu that looked like a beautiful display for a culinary magazine.
