our visit was awesome, thank you for the anniversary gift.
Man...this place needs a serious overhaul. The entire experience, from the disinterested hostess, to the looming and grouchy manager, to the server who asked us if we wanted dessert while we were not even halfway through our dinners and never cleared our empty drink glasses...sorely lacking. We won't be back.
We have eaten at this restaurant several times and always have good service and the food is well prepared.
Excellent rib eye and accompanying sides.
If you have somewhere to be and hoping to get in and out this isn't the restaurant to dine at as they might forget to put your food order in and all the tables that come after you get their food first. They don't apologize for their mistake either just say that they are busy even though they were not busy when you arrived or placed your order.
Great food, great staff, welcoming atmosphere! Will be back again!
Went here for lunch. Restaurant was pretty much empty and we still had pretty poor service from our waitress. Just inattentive. Delivered entrees before our appetizers came out (she forgot about the appetizer). No offer to refill our drinks. Just seemed like an off day for her. Will try again as the food was good.
Great food, service, and ambiance. It was a quiet evening, would go again.
Love Jimmy V’s! Great ambiance - very nice but still comfortable (especially for the Wolfpack) Our waitress was training a new waiter on his first day. They were both prompt and took great care of us. The food is always great and the bartender didn’t mind making my favorite drink even though it wasn’t on their menu anymore.
I always love eating at this restaurant! Great food and the staff is always incredible.
I would not go here! You are better off going to chili’s! We were expecting a nice place to eat, but this is more of a place for very low end bar food. Even the pizza was lousy. I’d rather eat frozen pizza than Thad. They had good wine choices, although they were pricey, but not worth going. We will never go back!
The wait was extremely long the food was not good at all not one thing we had the works was nice but did not update us on what was going on
Don't be fooled by the name the on this restaurant. The scallops where overcooked and dry, the calamari was greasy, and the steak had no flavor. There maybe better Jimmy V's out there but not the one downtown Raleigh NC.
The staff was friendly and the food was delicious.
great waiter service. and very friendly, willing to engage
The menu on Oren table didn’t match the menu at the restaurant . Very limited menue and good was below average
Loved the food and atmosphere. We'll definitely be back to this restaurant.
Service and food was excellent.
Service was great, food was really good! The atmosphere was just ehh
Terrible. Just terrible. Not worth it.
First time coming here and the food was very good. Prices were a little high on some dishes but overall a good value.
Took an hour just to get our food. Waitress never stopped back. We ordered desert and sat waiting so long we had to cancel it and then stand around for the bill. Won’t be going back.
We had dinner before the symphony ! We had an amazing dinner . All
Was just perfect ! The food was delicious and our waiter outstanding and informative !
Chicken wings were great but the two pizzas were just warm and the base was lacking flavor. We were disappointed. It was really busy so maybe that was a factor.
Reservations made, showed up 10 minutes early (but willing to seat at the bar) and was still sat in the wrong seats with a group (40+) of teens next to us! Also, if a restaurant cannot handle a large (40+ people) crowd then don't! Our food was sooooo late (an hour) and cold!
Granted, I have eaten here before and had no issues.
We ordered the tomato bisque as an appetizer which came out with the meal. It was not good at all. Only had a few bites. We ordered the rib eye for our meal. We were seated next to the kitchen and could see our meal sitting there ready for at least 10 minutes. The steak was cool and the asparagus was cold. Waitress never came back to the table until we were ready to go. Worst meal we have had in Downtown Raleigh. JImmy V's Steakhouse in Cary is good though. We have had dinner there several times. Very disappointed with the Raleigh location.
The food was good but parking was not
Our waitress seemed distracted (had to ask for my drink twice and we had to ask for water refills twice) and the bus boy started clearing our table before we were finished (complete with setting his grey bus tray with dirty dishes in it on our table before I could even grab my last drink of water). Felt very rude.
Not a great experience tonight. We decided to go to the restaurant for my birthday. We had been a few years ago and remembered it being a good experience. To start, fifteen minutes after being seated, I had to go to the manager to ask if he could have someone come see us and take our drink orders. To his credit, the manager offered to comp our appetizers due to the delay. Throughout the meal, my wife’s water was only refilled when she flagged someone down and requested a refill. It was just the two of us. My wife’s entree came to the table ten to fifteen minutes before mine. Of course, when mine finally came, half the food was cold. I ordered the ribeye. I like my steak rare. The piece of meat that I received was so thin, there’s no way it could be cooked any less than medium. We decided to order the creme brûlée for dessert. We couldn’t even eat it. I’ve never had chewy creme brûlée until tonight. At that point, our waitress had already run our card. She never came back to the table, and the manager was nowhere to be found. Very disappointing meal.
It took an hour to get our food. The ribeye was 1/2" inch thick and over cooked. My asparagus was undercooked and cold. The Mac and cheese came out lukewarm. The lava cake dessert looked like it was a prepackaged lil Debby snack. Our server was nice.
Went for Valentine’s Day. The food was great but the restaurant was oddly empty for such a big day which was somewhat off-putting. Begs the question, ‘What’s wrong for it to be this empty?’
Food was below average. The ribeye steak I ordered was thin and stingy. I ordered it medium rare and when it arrived it was well done. The replacement steak was rare on the inside and burned on the outside. The macaroni and cheese was runny and tasteless. The meal was a total disappointment!
Very disappointed in service. We had reservations made 2 months ago before going to Kinky Boots. Hostess placed us at table near cold draft from front door even though we asked for one of multiple empty tables away from door. Said they were reserved but no one showed for them while we were there. Waitress was not knowledgeable about several menu and drink items. Waitress was inattentive. Waitress stood at opposite end of restaurant, near kitchen counter, for most of our time. She did not check to see if we wanted desserts. We had to ask hostess to ask her to give us our check. We had to ask manager to take our payment. Worst service I have had anywhere in years. Salad was subpar. Most of Food was “just okay”. Wood-fired oysters were good. Butternut squash gnocchi was good. Basil Hayden on rocks was over-priced.
Good food, friendly service, reasonably priced and all that on Valentines Day when restaurants are super busy. We have tickets to the North Carolina Theater and the location was perfect.
We enjoyed our food, despite the mixed reviews. Good dipping oil and fresh bread to start...and very well made dinner entrees. My sisters wings came about 15 mins AFTER our entrees were delivered (they made the first batch wrong), and didn't attempt to comp us in any way, aside from "we are sorry". Overall the food was good though. A nice place to eat if watching a show.
DO NOT eat at this restaurant. The noise level makes it impossible to talk. They use broken plywood folding tables with a tablecloth thrown over it for tables of six. When ordering wine, you are told they "don't actually have most of them on the list since we share them with banquet." Also, if you want to drink your wine from a wine glass, do not go here. They apparently don't have enough wine glasses so we were told we would need to drink from water glasses. The waiter came by for water once then we never saw him again. To top it off, they charged a 20% service charge for the worst service and experience I have had in some time. Total ripoff. The place is a dump.
We had a huge party and think they accidentally overbooked but they were super accommodating. The steak salad and absolute mules were both amazing!
We have been coming to the All-Star Challenge cheer competition for the last 5 years and have always dined at Jimmy V's on the Saturday night during the competition. It has always been great however, this year was not very impressive. I had a reservation for a party of 9 at 6:45p- upon arriving, I was escorted to my table. From 6:45p until 7:30p, I was never acknowledged- no drink, no appetizer, ect. The restaurant definitely didn't have enough staff. The whole experience was a nightmare. I hope next year we can have a different experience as we have always enjoyed patronizing this establishment.
Everything was overcooked but the server was friendly and entertaining.
Waitress was very friendly. Great place to reflect on the Jimmy Valvano memories, the good times (NCAA championship) and bad times (disease that overcame his life). Being a native of the area I vividly remember the winning shot and the “Never Give Up” speech.
