What a GREAT CHEF, the building and staff could use some touchup but the food is the star. Crab appetizer in an "egg roll" style with some unique pickled veggies was a great start. But the stars were the entrees and deserts. We know now that Chef has 2 other outlets and we will be test driving those soon. If you are going for decor, ambiance and over the top service ONLY don't bother but if you are going for FOOD this place is worth every dime.

The food tasted great. To celebrate Independence Day, we went to Mimi's Cafe. The French have been long time Allies of the US having aided them in obtaining Independence from the British. We enjoyed French Onion Soup, Quiche Lorraine and French Pot Roast. Bon Appétit!

I’ve eaten here many times. The food and the atmosphere were delightful. It is a smaller, quaint Italian restaurant with the limited hours and very fine food, and it fills up fast. If you wait until the day of, on a Friday, as I did, you might have to settle for an 8:15 or 5:30 reservation. We arrived at 8:15 and we were seated immediately. Service was quite attentive, without being burdensome. I had the lobster ravioli with the Caesar salad. My friend, a vegetarian, had ziti and the house salad. The half-carafe of Cabernet was the perfect size for two. We had a nice quiet dinner with lots of good conversation, an excellent food and service. The downtown Gainesville area is a nice area to walk around before or after your dinner.
