Mimi Blue Meatballs and More - Good Food! - Mass Ave
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.
Have your Meatballs any way you choose. Mix meats, sauces and sides
First experience here. Food was very good and good portions. Service was a little on the slow side when it came to our waitress recognizing our table and replenishing water, drinks, etc. All else was fantastic.
Nice place. Good food. A little too noisy for a large group like ours to have a conversation.
We came later in a day on Mother’s Day and 2/3 of menu was not available anymore. We placed the order for items still left and they were absolutely delicious!!
Our server was extremely friendly and helpful.
We ended up having a great dinner and family time!
Strongly recommend this restaurant! We were at Mass Avenue location.
We love Mimi Blues. Their new fried chicken ball is my favorite and I cannot go without getting the Queso Mac and the Fried Brussel Sprouts! They are slow to get you your check when they get busy. I think the staff have more than the typical 4-5 tables a person.
Amazing food, amazing atmosphere, and great staff. I think the afternoon staff was worn out after a busy Mother’s Day brunch.
Great food and service. Seating is a little tight but food and service makes up for it! ❤️
Great little eatery. Loved the food. There are plenty of options for everyone. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Mostly good food, but service was very bad for a Saturday night. Meatballs were great. Side of Brussels Sprouts was awful. Only flavor that came through was old oil. Apparently down 1 server so the wait to order and getting the order right was a challenge. Would return on hopes it was just a bad night.
Food was excellent, but the service was sub par . Had to wait a while for our food plus did not receive our appetizer before our meal.
Delicious food: love the variety of sauce choices fir each meatball.
Great food. Fast delivery of food. Extremely decent prices for good wine.
Excellent meatballs and a variety to choose from. The sides are always fantastic. We love the Brussel Sprouts grilled. Lots of choices on meatball toppings so everyone should find something they like. Great place to go with friends. The only complaint was the chocolate cake was rather dry and for $8.50 should be fresh, especially on a Saturday evening. It was a generous piece with ice cream but all all three couples that ordered it agreed it was a bit stale. Service was wonderful. They serve some of the best coffee in town. Always a good time.
Great food and service. Perfect date night
The service was 5 star! The banana mousse is one of the best desserts anywhere.
We really enjoyed our dinner. The food and wine ware excellent and Cole our server did a fantastic job taking care of our large group.
Yum! Fun concept. Great for sharing. I’ll take out-of-town friends there. Must-have side: mac & cheese.
It was my husband’s birthday. The appetizers we ordered were great. The cauliflower and gnocchi were hot. The rest of our meals were room temperature at best. The dirty mashed potatoes were cold. My daughters said the apple pie and strawberries/chocolate were good.
Fun concept, something different and enjoyable. Food was very good and there is so much to choose from. All four of us want to go back and try more. Very enjoyable evening.
I think It was pretty good and the price was reasonable. However, it was weird and slightly frustrating that they did not have many items that were both gluten free and vegan. I took my mom there for her birthday because she is allergic to gluten and dairy. and she still had a hard time finding something.
Always great food!
Always a fantastic meal.
The atmosphere was a little loud for a business meeting. There are various meatballs options that include vegetarian and gluten free options. The bourbon barbecue sauce was wonderful in combination with the special meatball.
Just ok, nothing special from this visit.
Food was good as always. Was not hot and only mildly warm. Service was good and the waitress was friendly. Just want the food hot.
For the first time ever, service was just...ok. Apologies were made to the table for the server not showing up sooner, meal was delivered promptly, no plates for sides, had to flag her down, one follow up visit to inquire about dessert, an awkward clearing of plates and silverware, then checks. Just didn't feel that "waited on". The food was excellent. Just didn't get the really warm welcoming vibe I'm used to there. Service just felt very perfunctory. Wasn't that busy either. Off night? I hope so.
Great place for any occasion. We love the something different and this fits the bill. Everyone that works there is so friendly.
Love, love, love this place, but it is way too loud! Not the first time that I’ve had lunch or dinner with a friend or a group of friends that we ended up having to shout at each other to be heard.
Amazing food! One of the better meals I’ve had in some time.
It was great as always, with the exception of a very loud group, which left right after our food was served, everyone else was conversing normally as well as you should in a restaurant
Fried brussel sprouts are delicious! Meatballs are great with a good selection of sauces. Loved the trio sandwich option.
It’s always so loud - really hard to hear another person.
Mimi Blue never fails to impress with the standard fare and oh my the specials! I would say don't go there in the evening if you plan to have much of a conversation. But overall? Excellent!!
We were celebrating a friend’s engagement and it was our first time at the restaurant. All was going well until the two tables that had sat down and ordered after us got their food before we got ours. Not sure what the issue was but even after asking about it our waitress pretended it didn’t happen. Food was wonderful after it came out but was disappointment with the service and how the issue was handled.
Great food and service!
My boyfriend and I each ordered 4 balls. His favorite was the buffalo turkey and we both really liked the sriracha aioli. Sides are big enough to share. We will definitely be back!
First time visiting and I will be back. Very cool and different place. Food and service was fantastic.
Besides the seating being on top of each other everything was phenomenal!
Great experience. A little tight sitting next to others, but overall great!
Fantastic service and we received our food quickly after we ordered. The tables for two were a little close together, more like a European style or NYC style experience, so be prepared that you may be in close earshot of strangers, but the food is well worth it. If they have it, try the Wonderball. I had the Asian special Wonderball along with some meat selections and I think it was my favorite. It really is indistinguishable from meat and quite delicious.
This was our first time at Mimi Blue. It was a Tuesday night so there wasn't much of a crowd. We were quickly greeted when we arrived. Our waiter was very attentive, but not in your face all the time. We each ordered the 4 balls with sauce. The meatballs are very large, 4 is the right amount to fill you up. Between the two of us we had the marinera sauce, the mushroom gravy, the garlic cream, and bourbon bbq. All of the sauces were very good, my favorite was the bourbon bbq. All the sides are sharable, we had the dirty mash which was good. We topped the night off with the fruit/chocolate dessert which was strawberries. The environment was very nice, it was obviously quiet and the decor is nice. We will definitely be going again.
