I had a reservation with my husband on NYE and was seated right away. The food was just ok, nothing special. I had seafood spaghetti and hubby had ribeye steak. Our waiter was not attentive at all. We never refilled our water or brought out the bread ( we asked him twice!) overall it was just ok. We prob would never go back or recommend it to our friends.

It was NYE and it was busy but our waiter tried to do his best! The food was good but came super quickly (we got the three course meal). Our appetizer took 45 minutes to receive but we had no break between that, our entree, and dessert. It was a little rushed.

The food was delicious! I would eat there again on a normal day.

Dined here on New Years Eve and it was a great experience. I have eaten here about a half dozen times and will say the food is always great and the management and operations of this restaurant are excellent. They know how to handle a large crowd and maintain the same high quality food and dining experience one would get any other day of the week when their kitchen isn’t slammed with a full house.

We were sat outside as a party of 10 on the patio with plastic covering that was not sealed on New Year’s Eve night with a temperature of 26 degrees. I made this reservation three weeks in advance. We were brought one floor space heater and told they are working on the issue but we could not be moved. Our waiter was great, but it was freezing cold our entire dinner. We asked to be moved to another table but told that there were too many reservations and the table sat empty for over an hour. Very poor customer service.

I wasn't sure of what to expect because there were so many bad reviews written. Given the fact that this was also New Year's Eve, I was expecting very slow service and long waits from the kitchen. I was wrong on both... Service was immediate and very polite. Received our drinks quickly and there were no delays with taking the food order. There were 4 of us so we had the lamb rack and the short ribs. Food was tasty and hot. The ribs were extremely tender.

The food was over all very good. The pasta bar was a great touch. The chocolate cake was decadent.

The wait staff could have been a bit more cheerier but I suppose no one wants to work on Christmas.

I had to find the manager because no waitstaff ever showed to to our table. The manager was wonderful! Excellent gluten free pizza, which is not easy to find!!

Food was great, and they accommodated my daughter's special food request. Our server (Rick) was super friendly and helpful. We were going to the theater, so he made sure that the timing was just right. Great food, great atmosphere.

Our first time dining at Jimmy V’s and it was fantastic. Easy to get a reservation for 2 and they called to verify the day of which was great. Dined with my wife on a Saturday night and everything was on point. Service was fast and friendly, food was hot, portions were a good size. You will NOT leave here hungry. Music selection was all 80’s and you could see people quietly bouncing along to the familiar tunes in their chairs all over. Overall a really wonderful experience . We will definitely be back!
