Diner Reviews
  • "Tables were not set on the patio where we chose to sit so we had to wait for napkins, glasses and actually had to ask for the table to be cleaned as it was clearly dirty! We had to ask for salt and pepper after our meal was served. The server was sweet but seemed disorganized...we were never given the specials - ever! Too bad as my husband would have chosen the mixed grill but never was given the choice! Food was ok - not great. Calamari crisp but drenched in a too sweet relish, husband's steak not top quality and slightly overdone. For the price - we will not recommend or be back anytime soon. There is a lot of work to be done here with waiters, food and overall ambiance."

  • "We went to Jimmy V's for the first time on my wife's birthday. The staff was friendly and professional and made great recommendations on the menu. My wife enjoyed the lobster bisque and thought it was excellent. We both had steaks cooked perfectly and flavorful. To finish the meal we enjoyed a complimentary dessert to celebrate my wife's birthday. Overall we were pleased with our experience and will return."

  • "My husband and I took another couple to Jimmy V's for a special dinner. Not only were they impressed with the restaurant, but very impressed with the meal. The food was delicious as usual and the service was excellent. We have never been disappointed and will continue to recommend it to our friends and family."

  • "It's too bad that this place cares more about the quantity of customers than the quality of their experience. When I booked our reservation that day, every possible time was available. Yet when we walked in, the manager said they were slammed and the food would take at least 40 minutes. The server explained that this happens all the time. That's just poor management. The food was good, but definitely not worth the wait. Seeing a bunch of harried staff run around kills the ambiance. It's just too bad."

  • "This was our second time eating at this restaurant and my husband remembered it was very dark. It was so dark that we and several other diners had to use the flashlight on their smart phone to read the menu. Server was fairly new and not very knowledgeable about the menu yet. Food was very good. It was my birthday celebration so the best part was a free desert."

  • "This is my 4th visit to Jimmy V's and they never disappoint. This time we had prime rib that was excellent. Seafood sampler appetizer was also delicious. Tucked in the back of a shopping center and off the beaten path (at least it seems that way to an out of town visitor) it is worth the effort to drive from downtown Raleigh."

  • "What an amazing and relaxing dinner we had celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary. We rush so much in our day, it was nice to slow down and enjoy each others company and wonderful food & drink. The maitre d' took time with us to diacover a new wine and Bob our waiter went through the menu to recommend a perfect dinner. The attention to detail was amazing. I will definitely be returning and inviting others to go with me."

  • "We have been looking for a good steakhouse. Jimmy V's exceeded our expectations. The steaks were incredbile! Cooked to perfection, tender, melted in your mouth. The service was outstanding. All the food came in a timely manner and without any issues. We certainly will be going back. So happy to have found this place!!! "

  • "We were celebrating an anniversary and chose Jimmy V's. The service by Bob and Carol was fantastic! We were seated at a great table, food was superb and wine was great. We will surely return. To receive an anniversary card at the end of our meal topped off a great evening. "

  • "Went for their Mother's Day Brunch. Food and brunch set-up were just fair. Many dessert items listed on the brunch menu were not available. Will not return. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We enjoyed our visit to Jimmy V's for their special Mother's Day brunch. I was kind of hesitant about trying their breakfast items since that's not their specialty but the food was delicious! The restaurant added gratuity to the tab which I am guess is to ensure you pay it. It was quite hefty . . . over $20 for $75 bucks worth of food."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The food was great, service was decent, but the main issue was the 25% included gratuity in the bill. 25% for a buffet!. Buffet was overpriced enough at $35.95 per adult, but to then add 25% more to the bill was insane."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I took my spouse and family to Jimmy V's for our Mother's Day celebration. This was our first visit, so we were not sure what to expect, but we were not disappointed, especially with the food, atmosphere and the staff. We enjoyed it so much until we are considering it for the celebration of our upcoming 47th wedding anniversary."

  • "Not knowing anything about this restaurant we chose it for my husband's birthday. It turned out to be a great choice and we would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a high(er) end restaurant and one that is also fun."

  • "It's been awhile since we've been here and the food was great. Our server was very slow and not helpful but it did not create a problem."

  • "I picked your restaurant from a online search for a good Steak Place. I wasn't disappointed. Everything was fantastic. We were a party of seven and everyone loved their meal, one especially enjoyed the Salmon, she was surprized a Steak place could do a Salmon so well. I do however think the prizes on the Steaks were a bit high considering their weren't any sides included. This won't keep me from coming back but I couldn't come back as often as I would like. We were celebrating a Birthday and it was a great experience. Thank-You"

  • "The only negative thing about dining at Jimmy V's was the volume of the live background music. My wife and I are senior citizens (as were many others in the dining area) and the loud background music was annoying. I enjoy background music, but not when it is so loud that you cannot comfortably talk with others at your table without having to raise you voice or shout. Personally I prefer soft background music. Whenever I dine at a restaurant with live music, it is invariably too loud. Thank you."

  • "Kitchen is spootty.Some food prepared very well. Others poorly and served cold. Management defensive and deaf to negative comments."

  • "We have been traveling 50 miles to Jimmy V's for years for special occasions and when we can slip away. They known for their steaks and have never let us down."

  • "Jimmy V's always makes our special occasions fantastic. The service is exceptional, food exquisite, and atmosphere of an old speakeasy is fun."

  • "This was out first time at Jimmy V's and we had a great dinner. Jared provided wonderful service and some great recommendations, our food was was good and the wine complemented the cuts perfectly. We would definitely go back."

  • "Jimmy V's may be considered pricey by some but we found it to be well worth the expense. In every sense of the word....you get what you pay for!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "We've been to Jimmy V's numerous times and always enjoyed ourselves but tonight was quite disappointing. We waited one hour for our food to cook and then when it arrived my husband's $30+ dollar steak wasn't hot."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "There's not enough room here to adequately review everything about our experience. Suffice it to say we had 5:30 reservations and we left the restaurant at 7:15 having only been served apps and alcohol...complained to manager... no explanation... nothing taken off check...have contacted restaurant directly..."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food was good, but not worth the pricetag. The ambiance was exactly what I was hoping for though. We'll go again."

  • "The food was good but too expensive. I could have gotten the same cut of neat at Lone Star for 1/4 of the price The wait staff was great The food took too long"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I had very high expectations for this restaurant. My husband and I both agreed that the food was ok but it seemed to be overly salted in many cases. The crab dip was the best thing we had all night and it was delicious! When we were seated it took about 10 minutes before anyone came to our table to order our drinks and after that service was effective but slow. Dinner took us about two hours. We just felt that for the price that we spent on the food we could have had a much better overall experience and better food quality at another restaurant."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Very disappointing evening! Even with reservations we waited for an hour to be seated. Once we were seated our waiter did not show up to begin our dining experience for another 10-15 minutes. The service at Jimmy Vs was terrible; our waiter was very slow and not attentive. I would not recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or a party of more than 4. They simply cannot handle it."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We were left to wait 40 minutes before the waitress brought us some olives and breads. Then 15 minutes after that they brought out our appetizer. We waited over an hour to get our foods. I understand that it was a busy night but letting customers waiting so long to be offered something to munch on while waiting for their foods are not very considerate. But the foods are very good."

  • "Truly a memorable evening. We were seated within 2 minutes of arrival. Service, food, and wine were all top-notch and rivaled the 5-star restaurant at Fearrington."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We went here for Valentine's Day Dinner, we had the first seating, so you wouldn't think there would be any problems. We started our dinner with the Crab Dip. While the flavor was good, it was described as being broiled. What came out looked more like it had been scooped out of a container and dumped in the bowl . . . there was not broiling texture to the top of it. The next course, three of our party ordered the Lobster Bisque and I ordered the Spinach Salad. Lobster Bisque is a soup and they needed knives to cut up the lobster piece that was put in their soup. Our one son opted to not cut it and therefore only had the bisque part of his soup. All three said it was average at best. Fillet Migons were full of grizzle."

  • "Steaks were good (except prime rib--not good), fish dish was excellent and other accompaniments were very good. Drinks were great too."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "As is historically true, Jimmy V's food is exceptional. As has dramatically changed over the last year or so, the service is abysmal. Part of three, with reservations. 15 mins for order to be taken. 50 mins for food to arrive. Saw our waitperson three times in 2 hours. Jimmy V's has lost their way. The food is good but the lack of attentiveness, reasonable timeliness is worth the price. We will now dine elsewhere."
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "The food at Jimmy V's is consistently great each time we go. Steaks are cooked to perfection, sides are delicious, drinks are great. Service was a little slower than usual on this night - restaurant was very busy and it seemed like it took a long time for our main course to get to the table."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "We met with friends for a nice dinner. We ordered the steak, which was excellent, but could do with the the side fries. Also, the Chicken Oscar was well done. Perfect seasoning and moist. The mashed potatoes and asparagus topped with crab was also very good. We enjoyed our meals with a nice cabernet and a craft beer. The restaurant sat us immediately and the wait staff arrived shortly to attend to us."
