My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Jimmy’s on Christmas Eve. We loved everything about Jimmy’s. The service was excellent. The staff was friendly. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was casually elegant. I highly recommend this restaurant. It is a must do when in Aspen.

We went for the steaks and were not disappointed! There were 10 of us - two families after a hard day skiing we came hungry and left very full and smiling. The sommelier was excellent and recommended an excellent cabernet to go with the steaks, the service was very friendly and precise, the steaks were perfect! Cooked exactly as each person ordered. A testament to a good restaurant is when no one even bothers to ask for any salt or pepper. Every dish was perfectly seasoned. If you like steaks the Rib Eye Cap was excellent. Surprises? Well we ordered the lamb chops and their legendary crab cakes as an appetiser. Well the lamb chops just blew us away - it was that good! Would definitely dine here again!

I had top sirloin, the meat did not seem the quality I would expect, texture and flavor were not good. I generally get better steak at home, that is not normal, the steak houses I generally go to are better than home. All else about the place was very nice.

I've been coming to Jimmy's for years and it's always a great experience. Crab cakes are a must and any of the Kobe beef selections are the best in town. I always recommend Jimmy's to friends and family! Keep it up Jimmy, we'll be back!

Visiting Aspen for the first time only for a short weekend I wanted to make the best of my experience and indulge on everything Aspen had to offer. My raft guide, a local to the area, told me about Jimmy's and Jimmy's Bodega when I had asked for recommendations saying that it was a local favorite for the best craft cocktail and steak around town. Needless to say, my experience at Jimmy's was phenomenal. We were lucky enough to get a patio seat right around dusk with what I could only imagine being one of the best restaurant views in Aspen. The waitress was very kind and attentive and made us feel right at home offering her favorites on the menu and was able to help find the perfect steak for our appetite. She sold me on the Ribeye.It was outstanding! Perfectly cooked and plated beautifully, not to mention Jimmy's wine director made a personal visit to the table and paired a beautiful wine for the steaks we ordered. Hands down one of the better dining experiences I've had in some years. I would highly recommend visiting Jimmy's if you can manage to get a reservation. It's not hard to see why this restaurant thrives in Aspen. I will most certainly visit again next time I'm in town.

We had the best time at Jimmy's on our vacation in Aspen! The cocktails were incredible - creative and the ice was amazing - crystal clear giant ice cubes. My drink with the japanese whisky and madeira was so unexpected and delicious. We had the halibut and the rib eye cap - yum! And the wine list was great - when we were there, they were doing a promotion with a glass of wine matched to a region on the Tour de France. Will definitely be back on our next trip!

Jimmy's is celebrating it's 20th year and it's easy to see why it's been around so long. We've been coming here for forever and it's always consistent quality - great steaks, the best crab cakes and I am always impressed by how knowledgable the staff is. Great spot, we'll keep coming for the next 20 years!

1) When they called to confirm we were coming to the reservation we was assured we would get a window seat, but we did not get one.
2) We were barely spoken to during our whole dinner experience.
3) We got an eye roll when we requested a wine list on paper vs. on an iPad.
4) Watched a whole dinner plate dumped onto the table next to us
Overall we did not feel welcome. For the $$$$ we spent we expected more. We were hoping to impress our out-of- town guests, but needless to say they were not impressed & neither were we. Not going back.

I made this reservation months ago. I confirmed it when they called and when we got there they seated us in a table by the entrance to the kitchen. Our reservation was for 7:30 and we were out of the restaurant by 8:15. I have never been so rushed in my life. They wanted us in and out so they could have the table. It was terrible. Food was fine but it didn't matter. I felt like I was doing in a fast food restaurant for an obscene amount of money. It was my first time in Aspen and my last time at Jimmy's

Jimmy's was amazingggg! The food was fantastic! The spinach crab dip is to die for! I wasn't impressed when the waiter said we had to pay 20% in gratuity to get our check split between four people. I thought that was absolutely ridiculous and stated no where prior to service.

 (New York Area)·Dined on October 8, 2016

Biggest complaint was the table we (my mom and I) were seated at was nestled between a lot of tables and everyone had to walk around us. There were many other tables that were not filled, and with a reservation, we were hoping to have a nicer table. Not sure if host(esse)s look at 2 women and try to give them a bad table.

The food was very good. We had the tuna lettuce wraps which were light and fantastic - comes with 4.

Both of our dinners were tasty and I think we would go back if we were ever in the area again.

Very under par per our expectations. Very small, limited, overpriced (even for fine restaurant standards) wine list. I ordered the green beans, they were simply cooked in water - Zero flavor. My crab cake was ok, but tasted a little fishy, not like crab. Very disappointed for supposedly one of Aspen's finer restaurants.
