On Jan 3rd, 2016 I had mussels for dinner and ended up in the Harris Southwest Hospital emergency room the next morning with a severe case of food poisoning. A terrible experience that should have kept me from returning but alas I did return and the experience was also disappointing. No one loves French cuisine more than I, but their... More

Quite possibly the worst restaurant in the Columbia area. Long wait to be seated. There was no one at the front desk, finally someone came and took us to the only clean table in the restaurant. As other diners left their tables remained dirty until we left. When we got to the front waiting area there were people standing there... More

We come here very often. The Turkey Dinner is great and my husband likes the meatloaf. We sometimes get omelets as they have breakfast all day. We like the New Orleans room behind the bar but it is closed most evenings we go. It's a nice little restaurant and will be back in a few days.

My wife and I have been to this Mimis a few times for breakfast and always had a great meal, so, this time we decided to have dinner. Long story short , we had another wonderful dining experience, not only because of the wonderfully delicious food and drink, but also because of our server, Juan. Juan made every effort to... More

I went here for dinner with my mom and dad. I haven't been in some time, but I've always had two menu items that I like in particular: the slow roasted turkey and a turkey/bacon pesto panini. I had the slow roasted turkey (came with stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, cranberry orange relish, and I chose green beens for the veggie).... More

I have been to Mimi's Cafe in Sterling, Va and except for the inconsistency of their menu items and lack of good bar staff, the experience was very, very good. This Mimi's in Elkridge was my choice for breakfast this morning as it was close to the hotel. I ordered the mushroom omelet with bacon and brie. Absolutely tasteless eggs,... More

Went for breakfast. I had the buttermilk berry pancakes. The fruit was fresh and the pancakes were average but the vanilla bean caramel sauce tasted like stale flour and water. There were out of avocados so my wife ordered the mushroom, bacon and brie omelette. It came with NO mushrooms! The server said it was somebody else's omelette and was... More

My sis picked this one out, intrigued by the name, suggesting a French bistro. As I walked in the place made me think of a French version of a Cracker Barrell. The hostess was pleasant and we were promptly shown to our seats. Our waiter quickly acknowledged us and drink orders were placed. The service started strong but gradually became... More
