We walked in at 1:09 for our 1:15 appointment. We didn’t end up leaving there until approximately 3:30. Service was horrible & slow. I feel like their main priority is making the drinks behind the bar. After placing our order and waiting for our food for 45 minutes, we are then told that our food would be another 15-20 minutes because they lost their chef and had only one new cook. When we finally got our food, the American breakfast was missing an egg and their black Forrest “ham” was so thin, it looked like packaged lunch meat. As if all that wasn’t enough, the waiter charged my card FOUR times. 3 times for $75.xx (which wasn’t our amount) & the 1 for $49.xx, which was our amount. We caught this error because he was giving us our ticket with someone else’s credit card. It took another 20 minutes to void all these incorrect charges.

We were so sorry for our mistakes and we paid for your entire meal in the end. The waiter who waited on your table no longer works here. Please let us know if there was anything else we could have done for you. As a small business we are facing unexpected challenges every day but we always strive to provide the best service we can to ensure customer satisfaction.

Went to Mimosa for Father's Day Brunch. We ordered "Traditional Eggs Benedict" and Coastal Omelet.
See description of Traditional Eggs Benedict below.

"The perfect hard poached egg is firm without being rubbery and has a yolk that is completely cooked through and won't run when pierced with a fork. There is a fine line, however, between a soft poached egg with a runny yolk and a poached egg that is overcooked."

Poached till whites are set but not chewy. The yolk can range from runny to almost set. The yolk should be hot during cooking; it is a very special bonus if it's still hot, yet not too thickened, when it reaches your table.

The eggs we were served were hard boiled and centers were cold. No where near the eggs expected to be served as Eggs Benedict.

But what do you expect with three tables occupied; perfection from a French restaurant and thirty-five minute wait ?

Oh and the appetizer we ordered never showed up. We did find the runny eggs in the Coastal Omelet though.

Service was really slow. We waited 20 minutes for drinks and a full hour for food. Even though the restaurant was not very busy. The waiter apologized multiple times but was not able to move things forward.

It was Father’s Day and the service was a little slow I think the restaurant could’ve planned better for such a busy day. The food was outstanding donut made up for the slow service. Will definitely go back on a not so busy day.

It was 7 PM and only 2 other couples were there. We got seated immediately in a quiet, romantic setting. We ordered some drinks and calamari and fried oysters as starters. The calamari was a bit chewy, but the fried oysters we’re ginormous and on point. As we were finishing our appetizers, my wife and I heard a very loud disturbing noise from the kitchen. Someone hacked up what sounded like a large wet lougie. We were done at that point. The waiter was very apologetic and took off 1/2 of the bill. The manager was not very apologetic or remorseful. Asked what happened and then was never to be seen again. My wife had gone outside while I waited for the bill. I saw the manager go outside thinking maybe he was apologizing to her. NOPE. Spineless walked out and said nothing to her, saw her standing there and turned tail. We had been waiting to coordinate this date night at this restaurant for a long time. My wife had been very excited when our other plans had fallen through and I made this surprise reservation for her. Then for it to end like the way it did was very disappointing to say the least. We are over the allure of this place now and will never go there again.

We are regulars at Mimosa, and almost always have a first class meal and experience there. This Mother's Day was exceptional beyond ordinary, for the friendly, prompt service, and the delicious menu. The proprietors are always welcoming and thankful for the business, and make their customers feel appreciated!

I was a little disappointed in the service. There was absolutely no hustle with our waiter. Especially in mothers day. Limited menu, which in understand it keeps the kitchen at a good pace. However, our food took so long to get to the table.

Everything we ordered was good in flavor and temperature. The mango mimosas we ordered were tasty as well.

I probably wouldn't come again for a special occasion.

My wife and I have been going to Mimosa from time to time over the past few years, since the new owners, Stephen and his wonderful wife (I forget her name) took over. First of all, the food is some of the best I've ever tasted, and I've eaten in some of the best restaurants in the country from my career of business travel. Their current chef is creative and skillful.
On most weeknights, the business is very slow, which concerns us, because we want to keep this place in business! They do a lively business for Sunday brunch, but otherwise it's been very quiet very time we've gone in. Stephen is almost always there and is very personable and comes over to visit and is very concerned with this customers' satisfaction with the food and the experience.
We had bacon-wrapped quail legs in a house aioli sauce and a crab appetizer special. The quail legs are absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The Mimosa’s Lump Crab and Egg Specialty had a softly scrambled egg, folded into lump crab meat and then skillfully placed into a crab shell and served with delicious greens. Just the right size for an appetizer!
For our main courses, my wife had the Chilean sea bass, which she raved about. I had the trout meuniere amandine, which was also delicious, and a very generous serving of two filets. The saffron rice and vegetables under the sea bass, and the garlic mousseline potatoes and mixed vegetables under the trout were also worthy of their own meal! We accompanied this with a bottle of Louis Latour Pouilly-Fuisse from their incredible list of reasonably priced fine wines! (Last time we went, we had the Chateau Talbot 2012.)
We then each enjoyed a delicious Tuxedo Truffle Mousse Cake, and I am not a dessert eater!
Our waiter, Austin, did a great job and was very attentive.
I highly recommend Mimosa to any foodophiles!

The food was very good. We had the escargot and quail for hors de ouvres and both were very nice. We had the chicken cordon bleu and the filet for our main course, also very good. The place was nearly empty on a Saturday night. The interior decor struggles to be authentic French in a strip mall environment. The service was very attentive and made accommodations for the items listed on the menu which were not available.

Our service was slow, the decor seemed dark and old. The hostess stand had strange curtains on each side of it. Though the omelette was decent, the eggs benedict was weak with a 1/4 piece of thin deli ham on it. The egg was poached well yet the hollandaise sauce was room temperature. The restaurant was very loud. The plastic banner hanging outside listing specials should have been our first clue to turn around. Eater be warned - this is not a French bistro.

Friendly waitstaff, good breakfast potatoes, decent chicken and waffles. However the food served did not match the menu description. The Paleo omelet was done with whole eggs, not egg whites. The coastal omelette was made with broken pieces of crab cake, not jumbo lump crab. The ambience was not elegant, there were noticeable large water stains on the ceiling tiles.

Thank you for your feedback. I apologize that the Paleo omelet was not made correctly. I've spoken to the chef. Regarding the Coastal Omelet, it is made with a Lump Crab cake not "Jumbo" lump crab. This adds a much needed texture to the dish. Regarding the ceiling tiles, the roof is in the process of being replaced and its why there is all the construction equipment out front. Of course it rained during this process and once they complete the roof we will have the tiles replaced.

Even with reservations for brunch ..we still had to wait approx 10 min. The hostess also cleans and sets table.. only one server in our side of the restaurant so service is a bit slow. But...food was delicious. I had the breakfast croissant and French toast... soooo good. Husband had breakfast plate.
Overall pretty good. Will definitely go back

Th cheese on the fromage plate looked interesting but lacked on taste.

The ribeye was cooked well, however, it tasted as if it were basted in A1 sauce.

The salad was fresh, tasty and presented beautifully.

Waiter was very friendly but not a good waiter. He brought out steaks but we didn’t have steak knives. Actually no knives. Took agile to get so couldn’t eat our steaks. My husband got scotch. They ran out and had to go next door to buy more.
Food was ok. Did not taste fresh. Entree was cold.
We will not be back.

Additionally, we didn't run out of the French Oak Reserve 15 yr Glenlivet, but I do want to personally apologize to you that your waiter seriously misinformed you that we had; and, I most certainly didn't run next door to buy more.

The fish meal I ordered was beautifully presented and very delicious! The mixed vegetables were fresh and perfectly steamed and displayed as was the tiny red and white skinned new potatoes. The steak meal ordered at my table did not look as good as mine and it covered more than half the plate it was so large. Reportedly it was not as tasty and tender as the $10 small rib eye we enjoy at Texas Roadhouse. I appreciated the free wine sampling (3 or 4 in all) and the opportunity to order only a glass of wine instead of a whole bottle. The only desert offered on the Restaurant Week menu was very good and twice the size we could eat, but it packaged nicely to take home. I'll go back to enjoy the wine tasting again and see what other offerings are on the regular menu. All in all, Mimosa was a very pleasant experience. Thanks.
