The Restaurant & Team

Mimi’s Table is named after Rebecca “Mimi” Johnson, the mother-in-law of Owner/Executive Chef William Lawson.  Family and friends have always been welcome at her table and now you are always welcome at ours.  The restaurant’s vision is that of William and his wife and partner, Holly.

The Mimi's Team is small but mighty.  From the back of the house to the front of the house, our mission remains the same -- to provide an exceptional dining experience by offering great service, great food and great wine.  We take pride in hiring hospitality professionals and we are honored to provide a space for them to shine, grow and excel.


Located in the Old Town neighborhood in Tallahassee, Mimi's Table has become a favorite evening gathering spot.  Join us to celebrate a special occasion, meet a friend for sangria and a few share plates or enjoy a delicious dinner with a perfectly paired glass of wine.  Reservations are suggested but not required.
