    My reservation which was booked on Open Table was for 7:30. I had an email Conf and had received a confirming call fro Jimmy's. Yet when we arrived the hostess insisted the reservation was for 7:30 and showed her the email and told about the phone call. She was somewhat rude and made some remark about us having booked on Open Table. After much conversation we were seated. Not a good way to begin the evening .

    Service was terrible. Food was fair at best. Lamb chops were greasy and mushy. Waiter tried to overcharge on wine and drinks. Complaints to the manager were quickly rectified but the overall dining experience was far less than expected.

    Dinner was excellent. The outdoor covered patio was a bit crowded and the servers had a challenge navigating around close quarters. It was nice to order an entre and have it come with sides that were included in the meal as opposed to everyhting a la carte.

    I am a concierge here in the Aspen area. Two of us had dinner at Jimmy's. Food was great. I had the cowboy ribeye. My boyfriend had the trout. Both were excellent entrees. Food does come out fast....so don't order right away if you want to linger over a few cocktails first. I will send our guests to Jimmy's and we'll go again soon.

    We had been to Jimmy's about 4 years ago and they had Salsa Dancing on Friday/Saturday nights. We recently checked Web site and it had stated that they still had Dancing on Friday / Saturday nights to a live band. We were dissappointed that they had stopped the Swing/Salsa Dancing upon our arrival to Aspen. To be fair, the hostess at Jimmy's had saw our request in Open Table to be somewhat close to the band, and she called us earlier that day to inform us that they no longer had dancing at Jimmy's. Bar is hotspot and flows into the dining area which makes it quite noisy until around 9:00pm. Wasn't that impressed with the overall ambiance or food. It was good, but not great.

    It's mediocre. Not the best meal in Aspen and certainly not the worst. Lamb chop appetizer and spinach artichoke dip very good. Other than that, nothing noteworthy. Decent wine list. Very warm upstairs in summer time. Good for big groups though.

    The drinks and food were awesome! My husband and I both had steak, and salads. I had a Margarita and he had red wine. It was all awesome! The restaurant is a little noisy, and Saturday night was pretty busy! The only problem we had, our waiter was cut before we were done. His replacement asked if we wanted dessert, and was supposed to bring us the menu. Fifteen minutes later, he returned and asked if we wanted anything else!?! Because we didn't get the menu, we didn't do dessert (which we would have done)!

    I've been to Jimmy's before with in years past wtih friends for small plates and drinks. In town with my children and parents and decided on Jimmy's. Was a good choice. I had the trout and was one of the most memorable dishes that I've had...and my girlfriend agreed. I also enjoyed the gazpacho. While the crab cakes were fresh and had a lot of crab, was not my favorite - too much mayo or something, but my 7 year old daughter liked them. Lobster mac and cheese is tasty. Reasonably priced for Aspen. Pretty loud. Our server was great. Recommend.

    My boyfriend lives by aspen and whenever I come to visit from New Jersey, Jimmy's is a must. Everyone is so friendly, the view is stunning and I've never had one complaint while being there. Jimmy's Mac is delicious for all of the Mac and cheese lovers and the steaks are perfect. Service is great everyone is so friendly!

    Dined on 7/13/2014
    The lack of air conditioning resulted in a humid, warm environment that was less than comfortable. The inattentive staff argued that the reason for the lackluster service was that management anticipated less patronage that evening and scheduled too few servers. I've eaten at Jimmy's in the winter many times and had great meals. However, this was very disappointing.

    Table for 4 at 7 on a wed night....bar packed, restaurant pretty empty. Good thing, as it must be noisy when full..so many tables, so much wood. The fish entrees were great , salmon, tuna and halibut. The BBQ sauce on meatloaf too sweet for us. Delicious hot fudge sundaes and a great cocktail list.

    Steven one of our servers was delightful in his greeting..table for 2 outside overlooking the town.. Margarita made exactly as my friend requested. Pretzel bread sticks arrived in perfect sync as Gazpacho w/crab & the crab cake which rivaled my own! Thanks to my friend Ann who recommended Jimmy 's & her favorite locals spot.

    We recently visited aspen and ate at several restaurants in town including Brexi, Pinon, and the Trecinto italian restaurant in the St. Regis. Jimmy's definitely had the best atmosphere and the food was fantastic. The restaurant gets really packed, especially the bar but its a fun place with great food. I would not recommend the italian restaurant at the St. Regis though, its actaully the exact opposite of Jimmy's in terms of food, ambience, service, etc.

    Always a must go-to restaurant while we are in Aspen. The food is consistently great, excellent service, and always a great place to people watch. Lively bar. Excellent wine selection. Whether you eat in the bar or in the dining room you will not be disappointed. The Ciopinno is one of the best dishes on the menu, but their steaks rank right up there too! The meatloaf is a favorite as are their burgers. A bit noisy but that only adds to the flavor of the restaurant. Hope you check it out ....

    We went to Jimmy's as our special dinner in Aspen as we had heard so much about it. The first really pleasant surprise was the lively bar scene which looked, sounded and felt quintessentially Aspen. The main dining vibe was clubby with the most comfortable seating. The food was outstanding and beautifully presented. We had grass fed Colorado beef which was cooked to perfection and served with a delicious kale salad, the crab cakes ( big portion!) and the sea bass which came with Asian greens - beautiful. We didn't have dessert though I'm sure it would have been outstanding as well.

    My husband and I dined at Jimmy's on our honeymoon. I had requested a table by the window on my booking request and stated it was because we were on our honeymoon. As soon as we arrived the red carpet was rolled out for us, we had the table by the window, complementary champagne and we were made to feel really special. On top of that, the food was unbelievably good! We loved every dish we ordered. I would thoroughly recommend anyone to visit Jimmy's Aspen.
