Food was very good and a decent value, but it took forever to get our order and the restaurant was virtually empty on a Friday evening around 8

We had a nice evening - food was good, service was good. The menu is rather limited, not a lot of choices. My martini was clearly watered down. There's no need to do this, particularly when one considers how much a mixed drinks cost these days. Disappointing.

We arrived to a beautiful restaurant setting, with a nice city view and water fountain sculptures outside the large wall of windows We ordered 2 glasses of wine, and we were lucky if they had 4 ounces pours in each glass! Usually most restaurants give at least a 6 ounce pour, and we have dined out in many different cities and countries as well. We should have sent them back, but we carried on with ordering since we were going to a show and had to stay on schedule. The portions were on the smaller side for anything we ordered from salads to dinner entrees. However, the price point on everything was very high for what we felt was average food , and not not exceptional to pay more for. The menu selections were very few, and that was also surprising. The service was excellent, but overall a thumbs down.

We decided to not cook this year and enjoy someone else doing that for us. Well for $44.95 pp, I just knew it was going to be somewhat good. We had to make a reservation but when we get there on time, we still had to wait 30mins just to be seated. Finally seated and I tell my family go first, they come back with Blonde hair in their food! 🤦🏽‍♀️ Like wth, so we let the waitress know and she did apologize and bought fresh food but by then the appetites were depleting. Everybody wasn’t as enthusiastic about it by then. It was what it was. We left after paying $121.00 and was still hungry 😒😒 I really had high expectations for them since they are downtown.

Overpriced Thanksgiving buffet. Service was exceptional. Food was not nearly as good as past years. Turkey breast tasted like processed meat and the beef was over salted. Mini pumpkin pies were tasteless and pastry was moist. Not a good experience. Highly disappointing.

We went for the Thanksgiving buffet. The restaurant is dated and the food was set up in an outdoor tented area instead of inside. Therefore most of it was cold. The ham was mostly fat & gristle and the buffet line was over 20 minutes long. Our table was near the area that became the end of the line so we dealt w/ people standing around us for the entire meal. This was nowhere near the $45 / head they were charging and we will not be back again.

Attentive staff, warm elegant ambiance. The name ‘grill’ may mislead you- it’s bistro comfort food with a Southern flair. Wine list is not long but has plenty of options. We’ve eaten there before and will go back again

My full review is in trip advisor, but this night was truly terrible for so many reasons, the main one being they closed early and they made my date and I feel unimportant and rushed through the whole night. So disappointed.

Mimosa Grill is definitely a must try. It has been in business for over 25 years and keeps getting better. Our server was Justin and he made the dining experience even better because he’s tried everything on the menu as well as the entire wine list. Thank you Mimosa Grill and Justi.

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.
