Mimosa - Very Good BYO West Chester (East Goshen)

We had a wonderful meal at Mimosa this past Sat night (3/15). We were very hungry so we ordered 2 soups, 3 appetizers (not tapas), 2 entrees and 1 dessert. The mushroom soup (I believe from local mushrooms) was flavorful - not too creamy and arrived piping hot. We also had the duck quesadillas (very good), oysters rockefeller (also very good) and the crab napoleon (excellent). The crab was large chunks of lump crabmeat on a piece of phyllo dough and a very light sauce in small circles around the plate. The chef also sent out an amuse bouche of fried shrimp (just ok). I had the lamb special and my husband had the diver scallops. The lamb was pretty good (for some reason it was not extremely flavorful other than the crust on the outside), but the scallops were excellent. The accompanying sides were just ok (risotto with the scallops was a little mushy, the potatoes with the lamb were just mashed). There were also haricot verts and a few well-cooked carrot chunks on the plate. My husband had the homemade key lime pie, which he said was excellent. All of the desserts are home made. The coffee left a lot to be desired (both the caff and the decaf was much too weak), but hey, you can't have everything:) We will definitely be back. I'd like to try the 3 course prix fixe menu (wed, thurs or sun).

Has anyone been to Mimosa for the prix fixe?
