We were there on a Sunday morning at 9;00 a.m. They had just opened up and it was nice and quiet. I had the eggs benedict and my partner had the full breakfast with pancakes.

Where do I start? We asked what the specials were. The waitress pointed to a chalk board that was at the other end of the room. We told her we couldn't see that far so she reluctantly told us about the specials. The three of us were talking about getting a bottle of wine. The waitress said if we didn't... More

We decided to simplify the Thanksgiving meal for nine of us: in-town and out-of-town guests. Mimi's was a good choice with their fixed meal at $19/each; not overly pricey, thank you! We had a choice of soup/salad, dark/white meat and pumpkin or pecan pie. Atmosphere was good and service was attentive. There was plenty to eat and most of us... More

For the life of me, I have no idea how this place stays in business. The service is pretty bad but the food tastes like it was frozen, thawed, "cooked" and slapped on your plate.

This is a very nice Mimi's restaurant that is centrally located in Ventura. It is situated on the south side of the Pacific View Mall at the corner of Mills & Main. Easy freeway access from Hwy 101 and Hwy 126. Good classic Mimi's menu. Many of the managers, servers, and chefs have been there for years. As a result,... More

We eat there on occasion either alone or with grandchildren. Food is average; yet, we have always had good service. Nice location and great atmosphere.
