We made reservations as we drove into Charlotte on a Saturday. Arrived a few minutes late and were seated within minutes. Our server took care of us and wasn’t rushing, but got us out in time for our show. The menu is small and could have better descriptions of what is included in the entree, but everything was delicious! And good portion sizes. We felt it was a little pricey, but the food and service were excellent and it is in uptown. This place is a gem!

Love Mimosa Grill. Service and food are always amazing. The monthly cooking classes are so much fun and a fantastic way to spend a few hours on Saturday.

I visited the restaurant for my 1- year wedding anniversary. The food wasn't bad, but wasn't great either. My flank steak was ordered medium rare and came out medium/medium well. My wife ordered the beef filet which was ordered medium and came out nearly well done. Everything tasted alright, but certainly wasn't worth what we paid for it. I was a bit disappointed with the quality of the food for having the chef's names on the menu. I'm not one to complain so I didn't send anything back, but you are asking me how my experience was so I am telling truthfully.
The chocolate pie is far too dense, and just not that good. The Gelato was fantastic, however.
Service was not great and not terrible. The server was seen too few times, and the restaraunt was extremely slow on Sunday evening around 7 p.m. I just wasn't impressed. I wanted to take my wife to a fancy dinner, and I think I might have gotten better quality at Outback or similar. Was not worth the ~$140 before tip dinner that we had.

I've been here before, but this time I was disappointed.
Seated at 12:15 and already the food was out. Staff was slow with replenishing food, checked back twice to empty service trays.
Food choices limited, no chicken? They had it before 12, but replaced with spaghetti?
Might as well not even mention that you had an assortment of desserts, cookies and brownies is not what I consider dessert at a fine establishment? like this one.
Bellini's were good, needed because the food choices were so limited.
I will think twice before coming again.

Mimosa is our favorite restaurant. We come here every chance we get to, which isn’t often. And we’ve never had a bad experience. The whole staff is so helpful and very nice. Our waitress gave great recommendations and she was very bright. We never went without drinks or a check up. The manager came by and was very nice and joked around with us but didn’t “over stay his welcome” at our dinner. Overall Mimosa is a great place. AND THE FOOD!! I’ve been all over the world literally and I think mimosa has some of the best food I’ve ever had. From appetizer all the way to dessert we are never let down. Thanks mimosa grill and all the staff for a continuous great time!

I think the prices are high for the amount of food you get. Don't go too hungry and you'll still spend a small fortune. What we did get was fantastic. Our waiter was absolutely perfect. Would prefer either a larger portion (so I'm wow'd) or drop the prices a bit. Would go again for a special occasion. Can't afford to make it a regular place.

So disappointed. When making a reservation why bother asking if it is a special occasion if you don’t even acknowledge in any way whatsoever that we are celebrating a birthday when we show up. Our waitress had an attitude right from the start maybe because it was 9pm on a weekday night? Wednesday. Anyway we had to pry it out of her what the specials were that evening. Her reply was “I think we are out of the special”. Then we had to pry again what it was even. Now onto the food. The crab cake appetizer came out cold. We were told it would be “taken care of” but then only to see that it was still on the check at the end of the evening. The entrees were hot and delicious but the whole service level was terrible. Attitude, no attention to detail, no follow thru, and at this price point service should be top notch.
