    Food and service was excellent. After an amazing dinner I wanted a bite of cheesecake, but not a whole piece. Our server brought be half a piece!! Creative and really went the extra mile to satisfy the customer.

  • Our anaversary dinner at Jimmy's
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/4/2014
    Reservation was Saturday at 7:15 PM. Wife had filet, I had NY strip, both med rare. Her steak was OK, but not great. My steak was so tough I only ate a few bites. Both were more on the medium side, not med rare. Waitress was nice. She asked if we wanted bread, we said yes, but she never brought it. Salads were OK, but not great. By 8:30 the place was emptying out, not what you would expect on a Saturday night. We were disappointed. Bottom line, it's a nice place but if the food doesn't improve over what we had, they are doomed. Maybe we just ordered the wrong things. To be fair, we had eaten there once before and thought it was pretty good that time, but after this experience we likely won't return.

    We used this Resturant because it WS close to the Marriott SW. We arrived early for our 7 pm resie and since the room was sparsely populated we were seated right away. We ordered drinks and when delivered we were told that only one bottle of the selected beer was available. Not really a big deal but since the place wasn't full quite surprised. On the menu a big deal was made of the 1600 degree steaks,the server with heavy towels holding the plate I had to move the plate and was surprised that the plate was barley warm to the touch. I ordered the NY Strip medium rare and it arrived medium to medium well. The mashed potatoes served in a small bowl on the plate were cold with 2 large pieces of un-mashed at the bottom. No characters 4 server!

    Bad cuts both bone-in rib eye $38 and bone-in strip $36. Go to Cub. Execution of steaks was fine at med rare. Flavorless... meat could not stand on its own. Mushrooms burned. Both asparagus spears were fine. Gratin potatoes were good as the box. The tiny little bite of cheesecake at the end was cute. My wife’s tiny little bite called cobbler was a couple slices of apple and a tablespoon of ice-cream.

    We took my spouses sister to Jimmy's for her first visit. It was a wonderful experience for all as was expected. She had halibut which she said was great and we both had the walleye stuffed with shrimp and crab which we both love. Excellent service as always.

    We were there for a lunch dining and very few people in attendance - probably our 'early' arrival. They have plenty on the menu and what we had - crab cake sandwich and a sweet & spicy chicken sandwich, were very good. We would love to go back and try some of their fish recipes, they were very interesting. Our service was excellent and she provided plenty of suggestions, and (asked for) comments. Loved it!

    I have been to Jimmy's several times and have never had any issues...so I think this may be an isolated incident. My family visited for Restaurant Week, which we have done several times in the past. Maybe my expectations were high because of previous dining experiences, but my salad was average and my entree (filet, green beans, and au gratin potatoes) was horrible. Everything was either coated in WAY to much butter or it was greasy. It was pretty unappetizing and I barely touched my meal. Then when my "individual" size cheesecake showed up, it was literally two bites. I actually laughed when it was placed in front of me because I thought it was a joke!! Service was slow to top it off. It might be awhile before I return.

    It took our waitress awhile to come to our table at the beginning. I usually order what is on special at a restaurant which I did along with two others and they ran out of the prime rib. We all ordered steak instead which was good.

    Both our filets were over-done (we'd asked for "just moderately pink"). The waitress offered to replace them but we don't believe in wasting food. Failing that, she offered a free desert. Despite the over-cooking, the steaks were still tasty. We enjoyed our visit and will certainly return.

  • Noise & bright patio door/Poor Fish
    PaulD
    Dined on 7/17/2014
    Special Occasion Dinner not worth it - We sat in a larger corner dark booth (shades closed) right next to the door to the patio. Each time the wait staff went outside the bright sun blinded many at our table and there was a noisy commotion when wait staff bustled in and out or held the door open waiting for others to go to see tables etc. Also one of our two fish orders was horrible and inedible. The swordfish was over cooked, tough, very dry and lacked any signs of freshness. My guess was that it was frozen not fresh and the cook didn't know how to prepare it. A very expensive mistake at $26 a plate.

  • Noise Is Unbearable
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 6/24/2014
    Don't go to Jimmy's if you'd like to have a conversation. The noise level is over the top. I've tried this restaurant three times with the same result--unbearable noise level, and it doesn't matter if it's lunch or dinner. Our table could not conduct a conversation. The last time I asked for a booth thinking that the upholstery would absorb some of the sound. It didn't and we ended up going somewhere else for dessert so we could have the visit we'd intended to have at dinner. Too bad. I like the decor and the food, but the Twin Cities has may other good restaurant choices that are more attuned to customers' needs.

    I took a "stab in the dark" finding a restaurant to eat dinner at while we went on an adventure to adopt a new pet. We are not from that neighborhood, and didn't know any restaurants, so I just looked on-line. Jimmy's popped up, their web-site showed white table-cloths, which implied a fancy restaurant, but also had a friendly name so it seemed fun. We totally enjoyed our experience there: wait staff was attentive and very friendly, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was just the right noise level!!

  • Mother's Day brunch
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    We had an excellent Mother's Day brunch at Jimmy's Food and Cocktails. They didn't have a ton of selections on their brunch but the food they had was top notch. I've found over the years (being sort of a brunch connoisseur) that when a restaurant tries to provide too many varieties of food , they just can't do that many selections well. I'd rather they focus on a number of selections and make sure they're all great which is what this brunch did. We really loved it. The staff was great - I loved the atmosphere and will definitely go again

    WAY overpriced. Three people $130! That was with 1 beverage each. I would rate the bloody mary as a 2 out of 10. The buffet was ok. Not great, not bad. $15-20 bucks a head would have been a fair price. I have eaten here before and it was pretty good but I will never do their brunch buffet again.
