Plano >Mignon - Prime Steaks, Seafood and Cocktails
Downward Curve...... Service friendly but very clumsy and seemed to lack basic training/panache... No water glasses or regular spoons available? Place seems to have been trending downward the past several years, and it has been 2-3 years from previous visit. Now seems to be a magnet for fossils and/or the homely... Food was decent. $4 ice tea is pathetic. Go a few miles north and take in the much better Shops of Legacy restaurant area which is where the new dining options are located. Most likely will not return again
Terrible food and rats. We went to Mignon for dinner. Big mistake. The view is nice but the food is beyond description. The meat smelled bad and was obviously of inferior quality. I ate the fries and left the rest. While we waited for the food we saw a rat running around the server stand near the kitchen. Stay Away.
Mignon takes the cake. We recently celebrated a birthday at Mignon. They set us in a private room off to the side where we could really celebrate with our friends and family. We ordered appetizers and they brought them out "family style" which was thoughtful. The main course was timed perfectly after and our waiter had no problems keeping up with all of our requests. They really know how to accommodate their guests and make them feel at home. Most places wont let you bring a cake, for a small cake fee Mignon will. We will be back!
Delicious!. Have not had a meal quite this good in a very long time. More than anything, however, the service is something to rave about. It was a Friday night and the place was packed. Despite the fact that the restaurant was so busy, our waiter still managed to be attentive, friendly, helpful, and all smiles. He even helped us decide on what to have for dinner- everything looked delicious, we couldn't decide! What impressed me the most was how the manager helped the waiters. I saw him quite a few times bringing plates out to the dining room and picking up finished dishes. We had a chance to speak to him and it was just a joy. He was friendly and very funny. The wine list was phenomenal, the food was scrumptious and service was to rave about. I suggest all who haven't tried to make a reservation soon!
BEST BRUNCH. Usually, I come to Mignon for dinner, but the last time I was in town, our server mentioned a weekend brunch- we didn't even know they offered one! We came in on Sunday Morning and apparently we were the only ones left out of the dark! We sat on the patio and quickly ordered mimosas. Our server was Mike and he was friendly and very attentive. I ordered the crab benedict and my partner ordered the seafood crepes. Neither of us were disappointed. The hollendaise sauce complimented the crab and my eggs were cooked exactly how I had requested. I stole a bite of my partner's crepes and the seafood was fresh and light and very flavorful. Instead of ordering a dessert, we shared the pancakes. They were light and fluffy and the pears that topped them were sweet and tender. This may be my new favorite brunch spot. Make sure to sit by the water- the view is awesome!
MUST TRY THE SCALLOPS!. I had a dinner party here in the private dining room and my guests are still raving about this place. The service is five star all the way with out being imposing. Cozy atmosphere and beautiful patio.I have been here a few times and always think about trying something new, but the scallops are so good I always end up ordering them again and again. I also like the crab cake as an appetizer. It is breaded and just a little touch of spice. Be sure to save room for dessert !
Overpriced, Mediocre view, Mediocre Food, Bad dessert.
I was planning a romantic dinner for my anniversary. I called and made reservations for 7:30. When I called the next day to ask if they could move them up to 7:00, they had no idea what reservations I was talking about. I said whatever, then I'd like to make reservations for 7:00, and can there be lit candles on the table.
Show up- the view is of the water, but you get a much better view from Mi Cocina which is caddy corner to Mignon, as you face busy Preston Rd. The noise level is high, and the music they try to play over it is... random, like iTunes running on a random playlist.
No candles on the table.
The Lobster Bisque we ordered for our first course was basically LeMadeline's Tomato Basil soup, reheated from the jar with a single piece of lobster dropped in each bowl. Not that LeMadeline's Tomato Basil soup is bad (in fact it's delicious), it just wan't what we were trying to order.
We ordered a couple of specialy cocktails- these were a highlight- sweet, dessert type drinks, well mixed, and fun.
As for the main course ( filet mignon and a 'water and turf'): the steaks were decent, the monk-fish was over-salted but somehow flavorless in spite of it. It was supposed to come in a horse radish sauce, and it was sitting in a pool of something white, but it had the flavor and consistency of salted skim milk.
The steaks came with lots of sauce on them by default, which always make me suspicious (they should trust the quality of their ingredients), but they were tasty nonetheless.
The dessert (the fudge cake with mint sauce or something along those lines)... well let me get back to the actual cake. The scoop of strawberry ice cream on the side was actually pretty decent, though nothing spectacular. The presentation was quite good, and the whole thing looked delicious on the plate.
The cake was sitting in another no-flavor sauce- I don't even know what it was this time, but I think it was fruit based. The cake itself- burned, blackened, and crispy on the bottom. The scorched taste overwhelmed even the mint fudge sauce in the center of the cake. My partner said "This is the worst dessert I've ever had" and meant it- I would have enjoyed a wendy's frostee more, even for 8 bucks, and I Hate fast food (with the exception of Chipotle).
Overall, go for an after work or after dinner fancy drink, and stay inside, and you'll probably enjoy yourself. Otherwise, you can get much better food for less. Or equally mediocre food for much less at someplace like Outback Steakhouse.
Blah and overpriced.
We wanted a romantic setting with good food and expected moderately high price, but only got one of the three (guess which). Bibb salad was very ordinary. The duck with poached pear was different and tasty. I don't mind spending $29 for lamb entree, but this was ordinary and meat was tough. The presentation of the bread pudding was beautiful but it was ROOM TEMPERATURE and very bland. It had white chocolate and needed something to give it flavor. Creme brulee had strawberries which was very different and added flavor but the custard was blah. The waiter was attentive but very unprofessional. He even gave us a hard time about the time we were taking making a decision despite the fact that there were only a few other tables of guests.
I can see how the setting can be nice on a spring evening sitting outdoors. Inside though, they can't seem to figure out what they want to be. The bar has a TV which gives the restaurant a sports bar feeling which doesn't match with the rest of the place. The music was too varied (hip hop, light rock, and everything else).
With the large selection of restaurants to choose from in this price range, you can definitely make a better choice. We recently went to Jasper's which was FAR superior. We'll go back there next time.
yet another hidden treasure...yum!.
located on preston on the very inside of the shopping center with a patio
we went on a tuesday during happy hour just for drinks a few snacks
ordered Apple Smoked Bacon Wrapped Texas Quail and Braised Beef Short Rib followed by Sauteed Prince Edward Island Mussels it was delicious!!! seems like a hang out for old people though
we were the only young people in there. the deco was nice, service was quick, cute asian hostess
the place is bigger than it seems upon entry...tiny bit pricey but it's a steak house after all
over all a great experience will return again if I'm in the area
I can't say enough nice things about Mignon. I love the Prince Edward Mussels as a starter, and the Seared Scallop entree is absolutely one of the greatest things I have ever placed into my mouth! I have a Creme Brulee obsession of sorts, so not to worry, Mignon always gives me a happy ending.
Sure, as others here have mentioned, they can be a little crowded, especially on the weekends, but trust me, the wait is worth it.
