Jimmy V's remains high on my Raleigh list. Can't think of better. Food is fantastic. People are great. Easy to get to no hassles.

Go to Jimmy V's....

We’ve been coming here for over 20 years. Most consistently great steaks in Wake county. Service is good. The bartender (female Asian) who I think is also the manager is not a good mixologist. She runs a tight ship as a manager, but should not be behind the bar. We have had an issue the past 3 times we have visited. We will continue to come for the food and service, but we will limit our beverage selection to beer and wine.

Menu seems diluted vs what they have had in the past. Bone in filets, escargot, etc no longer on menu...big miss. Menu no longer seems elegant but rather simple. Should go back to menu they have had

Very disappointed. Service VERY SLOW. Food was so so. Not what we had expected. We were not asked if we wanted drink refills or dessert. We were glad when the meal was over. Very unfortunate experience.

The dinner was just ok. My lamb was overcooked and the broccoli was soggy. My husband had a steak and a baked potato. He said was pretty good but not worth the price.Our server was attentive . I feel as though for the price we paid, we could have gone to any generic restaurant and fed 4 or 5 people.

The food at Jimmy B's continues to be outstanding. The steak was excellent quality and perfectly cooked. Excellent potato (huge so can be split) and we had the Jimmy V's salad. We also had a couple of scallops and shrimp for an appetizer. Delicious food and wonderful service!

My husband's scallops were almost too salty to eat. My pasta, which was supposed to have been made in-house, was thick, tough and still slightly cold. We felt very rushed. We had planned a leisurely dinner with drinks and food, but this was obviously the wrong choice for our night out.

Great food made fresh with fresh ingredients, and aged beef. Great wait staff that is friendly, attentive and engaging with conversation if you want. Special occasions are their strength, since it can be expensive. They do have reasonably priced entrees, if you shy away from the cowboy steak. Food is served hot on warm dishes, and the salads are served chilled on cold plates to keep the salad crisp and fresh. A great experience anytime.

Unfortunately and for the second time in less than a month, the steak I ordered medium rare was cold and raw in the middle. This wasn't a tough steak to cook -- it was the standard ribeye. I have no idea what's happening in the kitchen, but something has gone seriously wrong.

Sorry to say, but I'll be steering my business elsewhere.

We both had fish and a glass of wine. With dessert and tip it was over $100. Could have done better elsewhere for much less, especially with the mediocre garlic bread that we were offered that just wasn't appetite-pleasing to start.

The steaks are always great. Never disappointed. I can’t seem to break away from the ribeye. The crab dip appetizer was excellent. We were there last for New Year’s Eve. The menu was reduced, limited that night, but had what I wanted.

Month of December gets crazy with parties and such but this took too long, 7:00pm reservation, food did not arrive until 9:00pm. Love going here but will avoid during holiday season. I'll go back because steaks are very good but not in December.

We were in town to celebrate my son's birthday and a friend of his recommended Jimmy V's and also recommended the Prawns as an appetizer. He was spot on -- the Prawns were huge and delicious. Our waiter was Eric and he went above and beyond to make sure our dining experience was top notch.

The night started out with the waiter dumping water on the table and my lap. That turned out to be the hilight of the evening. My wife ordered a filet, and the waiter raved so much about the prime rib being the best he has ever eaten, that I ordered it. The filet came cooked to perfection, but microscopic. It was much closer to a four ounce than the six ounce advertised. The prime rib came with the rib cap removed - the finest tasting portion of the rib, gone. That made it into a cheap rib-eye for the cost of a prime rib. Further, it was ordered medium rare, but the piece that arrived was the dried out end cut, carefully positioned with the end side down. Right after serving us, the waiter was pulled to set up for a banquet in the other room, leaving us without a waiter. In all, it was a very disappointing end to an otherwise wonderful anniversary.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Jimmy V's. Nic, our waiter, was exceptional and attentive. The entrees....swordfish and steak frittes were prepared and cooked perfectly. Presentation was classic. The Jordan wine paired perfectly as well and Nic had his service timing down to the proper level of attention and dining knowledge. Bravo!

The service as well as the food in this restaurant is wonderful though the food is a bit on the pricey side. My husband wanted to order a surf and turf...6oz. filet and a 12oz lobster tail....was told the market price for the lobster alone was $75. He opted for the larger filet. Needless to say we only go to this restaurant on special occasions

We came to Jimmy V's to celebrate our anniversary and to have a special meal. My wife said afterwards that Mike (our server) was very attentive but not to the point that he was intrusive. And she had a small bottle of wine which she was very happy with. The food was very good and tasty. (small filet and prime rib) We will try to return for other special occasions. Thanks.

Food was outstanding, Steaks were seasoned and prepared nicely. Quality of the Porterhouse and New York wasn't what we expected.

 (Los Angeles)·Dined on July 8, 2017

Came from CA to visit my sister and found this restaurant on line. Special occasion was her birthday, I hadn't seen her in 15 years and I'd never been to No Carolina. The only thing great about the place is the ad about why the restaurant has it's name. The menu says everything is cooked only in peanut oil. Who does that especially with food allergies? The pasta's are seasoned heavy with pepper. The bill was $95 for 3 people and the only alchol consumed was 2 beers. Usually this amount would not be a problem but in this case the entire night was a problem. Next day we found a BJ's a sports bar which is so much better.

Steak should always be good in a steak house, and after four tries at this restaurant, we can honestly tell you to order anything except steak. The seafood is good; the sides and salads are fine. Steak is either merely okay or downright awful. Service is very nice, but we're giving up on this place.

I brought a loved one to Jimmy v's for her birthday. She ordered a rib eye that did not come out cooked as she had ordered it. The chef and server were very apologetic, but it was awkward eating in front of the birthday girl so that my food wouldn't be cold by the time her replacement steak arrived. The mistake was rectified, but no offer for a discount or complimentary anything was offered. That is something a fine dining manager should always teach to his staff.
That being said, the meal was delicious and I will return. One minor mistake should not be held against such a superb restaurant.
