Mimi Blue Meatballs and More - Good Food! - Carmel
Mimi Blue Meatballs is a tribute to our mother “Mimi Blue” Kosene. Mimi was a Lady, endowed with manners, taste, and an easy social grace. She loved good food whether dining out or cooking for a hard-working husband and three sons. Every home-cooked meal had to satisfy the whole family, as well as any friends who often stopped by. Cooking was the way she brought us together, kept us healthy, and showed us Love.
At Mimi Blue, we make the kind of food Mimi cooked for us at home, but we serve it in the type of comfortable urban setting that Mimi so much enjoyed. Like Mimi herself, our meatball dishes are classics. Each recipe is rooted in culinary tradition, but refined for the modern palette.

Birthday. and my husband got to a excellent food and delicious dessert. Everything in the restaurant was amazing. 100 % recommended
It's a cute concept....just think - all those meatballs!! However, our server was not especially helpful in explaining how to navigate their menu which was very confusing for first timers. It's a lot to take in and make decisions about. When the food came it was moderately tasty...but the size of meatballs was very disappointing, as they are quite small.
So go...just order up on portion size.
Great food and service. We will definitely be back!
I've been a regular at the downtown location for a few years. This was my first time visiting the Carmel location. Carmel location had the great relaxed yet still upscale vibe and same delicious food. On this visit, where Carmel shined above was the service. Staff was so incredibly friendly.
As always the food was excellent! Service was a bit slow -- but we were a party of 9 and then 2 friends (who had a separate reservation) ended up joining our party -- so we were a large group and it was New Year's Eve. So I chalk it up to all of this. The staff was super accommodating!
We had a wonderful time visiting with one another but the service was slow. However, we love Mimi's and will continue to support this wonderful local eatery! The slow service was an unusual occurrence.
We always love this place and despite it being a busy NYE period they worked us in. Top notch.
Best Mimi's in the area! I've been to all of the Mimi Blue locations and always like the choices but the experience we had in Carmel was simply excellent. The hostess was very welcoming and said she reserved the best table for our party. We had a private/quiet table in the back, a very helpful and fun waiter who brought us all the sauces to taste (sorry I don't recall his name!) and delicious cocktails. We ordered a huge selection of food that came quickly. We lingered and enjoyed our evening with no pressure from the staff to move along! The prices are also really good for the quantity and quality of the food. I can't think of a thing I would change to improve our experience! Thanks Mimi :)
Very loud table two down from our table - made it very difficult to have a conversation. Overall, dinner good.
We had had a bad experience at the Mimi Blue at the Fashion Mall so we received a $100 gift certificate to try again. We chose to do so at the Carmel location. We waited 10 minutes to be sat (with a reservation) & another 20 minutes for our server to decide to ask if we wanted to order. During this 20 minutes we decided to go elsewhere, even knowing we had a gift certificate to use. We won’t be dining at any Mimi Blue location anytime soon.
Food was really good, and the staff were fantastic. Very accommodating/tolerant of our young children.
The restaurant had a pleasant ambience and our server was quite knowledgeable about the different selections and sauces.
Great food, never disappoints
Our first visit and it was Delicious! Such a fun concept and adaptable for anyone! We had a larger party and everyone at the table felt that they had exactly the dining experience they wanted, and every single one of us ordered different flavors. All raves!
I always enjoy my meal here. The only draw back is that I must eat gluten free and there simply are not many choices so I always have to order the same thing. I’d love it if they had a few other sauces I could try.
Comfort food at its best. I had turkey meatballs with mushroom gravy and smashed potatoes. A filling and delicious meal for a chilly evening. Can't wait to return and try their other items.
Lovely brunch! Food was awesome. As always the folks at Mimi’s easily accommodated our need for a substitution. No rush - able to enjoy a leisurely brunch
First timers. Excellent food, service, and table in the bar. Only 2 minutes from our hotel; perfect for a Friday Date Night after a long week at work. Will be back for more meatballs and queso-Mac-n-cheese.
You can't have a bad experience at Mimi Blue! You create your own meal and everything is as delicious as described. The was a lunchtime meeting and my guest was beyond pleased with the experience.
One of my favorite places to eat.
We had a great time and delicious food and wine at Mimi Blue Meatballs. It is nice to be able to create your own meal by selecting the meatballs and sauces. You can get a lot of variety in one meal. Great idea.
Great food for after work gathering. Good value wines as well.
It was a Friday night and the place was empty. I had wanted to try this place for a year, as we recently moved to Carmel. I think the concept is neat, but everything was too rich. The way the menu is set up, you end up ordering too many meatballs. Even if you get four different meatballs, it’s for a very rich meatballs. I definitely needed more greens and while we ordered a salad and a veggie side dish, they too were really rich.
So good, suggest trying a little bit of everything!
Have friends that have lived in the area and never heard of this place. An Italian "critic" swore we were not going to like the place. We made a believer out of them. And took back the words they said about a place they never tried. Love the choices in meatballs and sauces. Extremely affordable. Plan to visit over and over again.
Our server Morgan did a fantastic job. She was helpful with suggestions and gave us the perfect amount of attention.
Manager, Josh, stopped by the table to check on everything and comped an anniversary dessert.
Very slow service
Love Mimi Blues! Everything was great!
Loved the concept but not the flavor. Meatballs were bland and not warm enough. Sauces did not have deep flavor. Bolognese was bland. Mushroom was gelatinous. Fried chicken meatball was very bland.
Great food & wine. Nice place to meet for business lunch.
Amazing food, do yourself a favor and get the brussel sprouts!! Great service and everything was delish!
Unique menu picking sauce and meat for mix and match usually 4 balls. The fried chicken is actually a hunk of breast rather than a meatball. While daily specials or classic meatballs with marinara are popular my preference is turkey with mushroom gravy. All sides sere 2 or more and are good for adding veggies to the meal.
Father’s Day brunch. Awesome
Love Mimi Blues, especially this location!! I have been here several times and they are always very friendly and the food is fantastic. We were there celebrating birthdays and they gave us two free desserts that were WONDERFUL, the banana mouse and a chocolate waffle sundae. Great quality food, great location, great staff... I can't say enough about how lovely this place is! I do wish they had cocktails but I don't think there is anything they can do about that. It certainly won't stop me from returning again and again.
We love the range of choices and our ability to craft our own selections at Mimi Blue. The quality of the food is good and the prices reasonable.
Lovely evening w delicious food
Great service. They changed the brussel sprouts and we did not like them as well. Otherwise, the food was delicious!
Great food and great service. It was a little loud but there was a nearby table of 12-14 people so that was to be expected. It was my first time there; I will definitely go back.
Food was great. Service was only so-so, but it was mother's day so they were very busy. I would go back.
Great service. Great food that's priced fairly. What more could you ask for? We went for brunch, and now I'm excited to go back for dinner!
