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.

Unfortunately, as guests of The Landing we expected much better from its restaurant, Jimmy's.

Our breakfast, as a package inclusion was a disaster; this was primarily a service issue.
My wife ordered tea. The waiter reported there was none. We explained we heard the same thing the night before at dinner, but that the waiter then found some. Sure enough, the breakfast waiter went away and found some.
My ordered omelette listed ingredients that steered clear of cheese. The omelette came with two cheeses, one on top, the other folded into the omelette. It was returned and redone.
My wife asked for whole wheat toast. After ten minutes the waiter returned to say they had none. Ten minutes after that, he returned to advise they did find some.
The couple beside us arrived 10 minutes after us, ordered, and received their meal 10 minutes before either my wife or I received anything in respect of our order, including the first attempt at the omelette.( I had also ordered steel cut oats with fruit, and, though only brought along with there original omelette - i.e.., after much waiting - that aspect of my meal was excellent. Best oats ever).
Total time at Jimmy's to get our breakfast: just under 2 hours.
Tip: the next morning we had a much superior breakfast experience at the Best Western down the street. Server David was top-notch. The food very good. (though the oatmeal was outdone by Jimmy's).

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 5th anniversary at The Landing last weekend; Great food, wonderful view and atmosphere and the staff went above and beyond to make sure that our experience was special. I can't say enough about it and highly recommend it to others.

We met out of state relatives here for lunch & to catch up. It was also good midway point between their meeting in Reno & where we live in Sacramento. It was a cold, rainy day & we were all very pleased to be seated in a cozy spot with small fireplace. Our relatives commented on what a good choice Jimmy’s was (I had made reservations & had never been there before).
Food was good but my husband was surprised that his choice of octopus was more like an appetizer than a meal. Would have been helpful if the server had pointed this out. A few ordered fish tacos but they said it was mostly cabbage & not much fish. My burger was hearty & delicious as well as sweet potato fries. We had a very relaxing & pleasant stay at Jimmy’s & great opportunity to catch up with loved ones without feeling rushed. In addition, bathroom was clean & nicely decorated. Really a lovely resort right next to the lake.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Jimmy's. The food was amazing. They have an excellent selection of small plates, as well as wine. The service was outstanding. We requested a table by the window and got to watch the beautiful sunset. It was fabulous!

I had been to Jimmy’s "Beach" location months ago for a special event. This time I took my wife to the main restaurant for Mother's Day and the food and service were outstanding. Our server, Matt Gullery, was professional and knowledgeable on a variety of topics. However, it is what my wife and I learned as we were leaving, and a proof that it is indeed a small world. Matt was a close friend of young man who was killed in a skiing accident; that was the special event I had attended earlier. The mother of that young man and my wife went to college together forty years ago in Russia. “It is indeed a small world.”

Food was good, and server was friendly and genuine - but service detail was slightly off. Had to request Salt and pepper and ketchup. One of side orders was incorrect (asked for two eggs scrambled and received sunny side up).

We love Jimmy’s in Mammoth so we thought we’d give this sister restaurant a try. Unfortunately it does not compare and we left very disappointed. The menu was limited and the entrees very expensive. My husbands $60 steak was 30% fat and my equally expensive lamb chops were raw on the inside and over cooked to the point of chewiness on the outside. We asked for a chocolate soufflé at the start of dinner and it came out while we were eating our entrees. We asked the server to keep it in the kitchen until we were ready and when we asked for the dessert, we were told that our soufflé had been given to another patron and that now the restaurant was out. Throughout the whole meal the server did her best and apologized profusely as did the manager, but given the high cost of this meal, I can’t see us ever taking a chance on Jimmy’s again.

We went on Easter Sunday(3 adults,2children) for Breakfast. The place is right across from the lake and has a cozy outdoor patio. We sat indoors because it was a little chilly and the indoor seating was just as cozy. Our waitress Cassie was wonderful, she was friendly, helpful, funny and very pleasant to talk too. We've had omelettes and Eggs Benedict before but these were the best we had every enjoyed. Cassie appreciated the comment and said she would let the chef know. We will definitely dine here again the next time were in town.

We came here on my reccomendation based on the location to where we were staying and the great reviews. I thought the food was pretty bland considering the prices and previous reviews. The Seafood Risotto was awful. My husband enjoyed his lamb (I think it was lamb he got).

The ambiance was nice and the server was nice enough. A little disappointing considering the price tag of $400 for the 4 of us.

I will try other spots next time I am in Tahoe.

I took my girlfriend here for her 27th birthday she absolutely loved it. Little did she know she was in for a huge surprise when her dessert came out. Matt our waiter did an amazing job he was super helpful with the whole thing. He offered different ways I could present the ring, to my soon to be fiancé. After she said, yes! Matt offered to take us into the wine cellar to take more pictures which was definitely the icing on the cake.

We loved the Landing! Everything we ate from the pita bread to the lamb to the espresso was super great. The food was very flavorful and masterfully cooked. The service was great and the ambiance was beautiful. The view of Lake Tahoe is gorgeous - go at sunset if you can! I wish we had discovered it earlier in our stay as we could have gone more than once!

The food was outstanding as was the jazz music in the bar. The servers seemed only to chat with certain tables, leaving their other tables waiting long periods for a drink or service. I am not sure if this may be a better spot for locals than for tourists. The food was excellent however and the location is very nice.

We were the only table for dinner in the restaurant , I ordered the salmon special was beyond nasty no taste at all , risotto no flavor and watery and the grilled zucchini was not grilled more like microwaved ! My husband ordered the ribeye steak was average nothing to brag about. We also had the cheese plate and lemon wings for happy hour . Cheese plate was ok very small amount and the chicken wings were very dry . Overall would not recommend

This was a surprise, having come to this neighborhood for years we missed this little gem.
Not sure if the ingredients are organic, which would not surprise me, I do know the food was tasty. Our favorite was the filo savory sweet dish as a main course.
I would love if more vegetarian dishes would be on the menu and if instead of chicken stock they could use vegetarian stock.
We will certainly be back.
