The restaurant was right around the corner from my hotel. The food was good, atmosphere great with the panio player and red checked table clothes and the service excellent. Will defintely visit again on my next trip to NYC.

I live 2 blocks from Mimi's. The food is amazing. It can be a little (a lot) noisy at night with the piano player, but it's all so festive so I don't really mind. The food is outstanding. I'm learning to try different dishes and I've been happy so far with all. I've had shrimp scampi (totally amazing); Chicken Milanese (outrageous); Rigatoni Bolognese to die for!! I usually have 1/2 caraf of wine Zinfindel and I am so happily stuffed. I always tip the waiters extra because they are so friendly. It can get really hectic because it's such a popular place, but it sure is worth the wait!! I highly recommend Mimis for it's wonderful food and cozy and fun atmosphere.

I can't believe the reviews the last couple people gave! I've lived in this neighborhood for over 5 years and have never had a bad meal. Food is excellent basic italian, service is great, and the atmosphere is so cute! I am a customer for life!!! All dishes coem w/ pasta or salad.. where else can you get that! I LOVE Mimi's!

I don't remember much about the food or service...but it wasn't bad, so I guess that's a plus. I'm coming back to New York for Christmas, and my first plan is to get back to that crazy piano player at Mimi's! Behind that wierd persona is a really, really talented pianist...but he understands good piano players are a dime a dozen in NYC, so he has him gimmicks. Ask him to play something legit....amazing!

The previous reviewer hit the nail on the head-Chicken Delicious-or Hunter as he was previously known is the best show in town,and Fred is a real personality and the place is a lot friendlier since he took over hosting duties. The food is so-so but I was turned on to the pork chops with cherry peppers by the younger blond waitress and I get that and the salad with blue cheese dressing every time I go there.

I happened on Mimi's by chance a few years ago and have been stopping by regularly since then-the food is average Italian red sauce fare that used to be better when they had a real chef.The host is fantastic and makes the place but the Best thing about Mimi's is Chicken Delicious the piano player who puts on such a fantastic visual show and is frankly one of the most talented piano players I have ever had the pleasure of hearing,when he plays classical pieces there is such a depth and richness-I have heard others playing that same piano and it doesn't sound like the same instrument-Bravo,Bravo Chicken!

I've lived in the neighborhood for years, and finally decided to give this place a try. I liked the looks from the outside, and inside is quaint and cozy. It turned out not what I hoped it would be. We waited a long time for our waiter, he forgot our drinks not once, but twice, and when I asked for my pasta to be cooked softer, not so al dente, he said "we can't, it's already pre-cooked" Not what a diner wants to hear. The salads were small and boring, I make and present a better salad at home and the pasta, even though the portion was a good size, was kind of blah. I really wanted to like this place, but I just can't. We left disappointed and not happy with the experience. Not terribly expensive, but not worth what we paid.
