We were extremely disappointed. I made the reservation well in advance. We assumed we would be seated in the dinning room but instead when we arrived we were told the dinning room was full and we would be seated in the bar area 5 feet from the singer. It was difficult to hear the waitress tell us the specials for the night as well as listen to each other. When we arrived we asked to be seated in Matt's area but were told he was off that night and then later found out he wasn't working there any more. We think Jimmy's should have notified us at the time we made the reservation that the only area available was in the bar area. We were looking forward to a nice Christmas Eve dinner in a nice restaurant with linen tablecloths. We do not consider sitting in the bar area as fine dinning. The presentation of the food also wasn't what we were use to in the past.

Thanksgiving Dinner-
Returned to Jimmy’s after an initial positive experience to have a Thanksgiving Meal. The Preset menu was overpriced ($85) and the food was underwhelming.

My Turkey was cold & some under cooked. The Pumpkin Pie which I was excited about was a small round mini crust(tasted store bought) with a little bit of pie filling. Would like to see Gluten Free Options(stuffing & dessert). The best part of the pricey meal was my parsnip soup starter and service was friendly.


We won’t be back due to price and quality.

Nice evening at Jimmies. Husband had the Filet. He said it was great! I had the Gnocchi and Grilled Chicken. It was ok, too much gnocchi and not enough chicken. We had a nice small table that looked out at a fire pit so once the people by the fire pit left it was great to have the ambiance of the fire. Made the dinner more cozy! The staff was friendly and accommodating! Lemon Tart for dessert was great!!

The location was fabulous. Unfortunately there were some very loud, boisterous, crude drunks outside on the patio and then inside the restaurant. Management allowed them to disrupt and disturb the other guests. This was not the occasional boisterous crowd. They were really obnoxious!!!!! We were trying to have a nice quiet dinner and I might add at a highly recommended, quiet restaurant. The food prices were expensive, which added to our displeasure at having our enjoyment of the evening disrupted. The Jimmy's Manhattan was very delicious and the female bartender was great. She rinsed the Manhattan glass with a little smokey scotch before pouring the Manhattan in. It was over the top. When we ordered our dinners we asked the waitress for a recommendation. She suggested the scallops. I asked it the lardons in the dish would over power the scallops and she said "no." " it's one of the beast dishes on the menu." The entrees came and my husband's elk steak was fabulous, however my scallops were not. All I could taste was the lardons (bacon really). I mentioned it to her and she did not offer to make an adjustment and or change the order. By the time the bill had come, after requesting the management to mention the noise level and vulgar language we were subjected to, and the waitress assuring me the lardons would not over power the scallops, I requested a price adjustment for the scallop dish since I only ate 1 of the 3 scallops. (The other 2 of the 3 I took home for the dog, who loves bacon.) I was told by the waitress that the manager refused to an adjustment. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone and would never pay the prices that they charge again. We will never go back and I will tell everyone never to go there. My experience was awful.

We have dined at Jimmy's several times for breakfast, but this was the first time for dinner. We were very impressed with our service and the quality of the food. For an appetizer we shared the grilled octopus and it was extremely tender and flavorful. For our entrees we both ordered the seabass special and were not disappointed. For dessert we shared the chocolate mousse. It was very good and not too sweet.

We have dined here before had a really good experience everything was great this time though service was to say the least was very inattentive had a very expensive bottle of champagne we had brought and it sat on the table getting warm for 10 minutes before we got an ice bucket and 2 glasses fresh out of the wash so they were hot glasses perfect for warm champagne I guess. The table was not the one I had requested, the food was extremely overpriced and over cooked I don’t have a problem with the money but if your going to charge that much food better be damn good! Definitely the complete opposite from our previous experience probably won’t be back Definitely not the 5⭐️Dining they claim

Seating was wonderful. Open to view Lake Tahoe. My husband ordered gnocchi—not very tasty. But my ribeye steak was delicious so we shared my entree. The steak was huge. Lovely way to spend a dinner lakeside. We are not wine drinkers but they had an extensive wine menu.

The restaurant has very obvious kitchen problems proven by a delayed breakfast-lunch transition, a very fishy grilled octopus, and a mediocre veggie burger.

The service was just okay. And the prices are fair for the type of offerings, but not fit for taste.

Great location though!

The smoked octopus was very good once I got passed what it was. My wife really enjoyed it but she is very adventurous. I had the lamb which was also very good and my wife has the king salmon which she raved about. We had a great view of the lake and mountains. The service was excellent. Overall it was a very enjoyable dinner.

We had a party of 8. Once we were over the 6 limit for automatic tip, they basically did nothing for us. Service was absolutely awful, waitress didn't care, never refilled drinks, never asked how food was and was basically rude.

The icing on the cake was when check delivered they made sure to tell us the gratuity was included. It was the only time in life I have questioned if I can put a negative tip in the extra tip section cause it was that bad.

It took us a while to get a table even though we had a reservation and the restaurant wasn’t that busy. After ordering drinks and food, the appetizer (which was a salad) took 30 minutes to arrive. It took an additional 30 minutes for the entrees to arrive (both pasta dishes.) It was also my husband’s birthday, which they knew about and said they’d do something special for him, but we left without any mention of it. Very poor experience!

Outstanding service for our anniversary dinner. Matt did a great job and personalized our experience and did a wine pairing for our courses. He truly went the extra mile. Was also able to get us out right on time for our comedy show. Would not heaitate to recommend to anyone looking for a great experience in Lake Tahoe.
