Pre Sounders Playoff match so it was busy. I made reservations ahead of time, glad I did. Though busy, service was quick, waiter responsive, and the food was good. Go SOUNDERS!

No reservation needed on a non-baseball, non-event Thursday night. The bar was packed, with every seat taken. The restaurant, however, was dead.

My service was phenomenal while I waited for my friend to arrive. The server even grabbed my friends orders to have it ready when she got in. The food was great!! We both got different sandwiches and my goodness, the Jimmy’s Sweet Potato fries!!!! More of that please.

I had a spectacular cocktail called the Bloody Bacon Martini, and yes please, may I have another. Zesty and a strip of bacon included.

I will be happy to go back here when I am in SODO. No questions asked.

It was really quiet on this Monday during lunch hour. No Stadium events happening that day. Our waiter was perfect. He was on top of everything for our group of 11 and every dish came out simultaneously and appropriately hot or cold.

Another much anticipated post Refuse to Abuse 5k celebratory brunch. The thought of Jimmy's Brioche French Toast has us salivating as we support a worthy cause. Jimmy's never disappoints!

We were there on a non-game day, meaning no soccer, baseball, or football going on at the local stadiums. While you could watch televised sporting events on several TV monitors throughout the restaurant and bar, the sound was appropriate to carry on conversations. I had the fish tacos and crème brûlée for dessert, both were excellent.

So it was a great place to gather for conversation and happy hour. The service was great and the food was, too. Love that it had free valet parking ( only on non-game days) .

I love this place! It is very conveniently located in the SODO area of Seattle and the hotel (Silver Cloud) in which they are located provide complimentary valet parking which contributes tremendously to the convenience. The food is decent, as well. I would recommend this place!

We were looking for a good, casual place for early afternoon brunch that was open on Christmas Day. Jimmy's fit the bill perfectly, the eggs benedict my wife and I ordered were excellent, especially the roasted potatoes, and our usually very finicky late teen daughter loved the brioche French Toast and sausages. She loved the cinnamon sugar butter!!

We ordered the Turkey Special for Thanksgiving. It came with:
- turkey
- gravy
- onion strings
- cranberry sauce
- sweet potato puree
- green bean casserole
- a bun
- a slice of cranberry pumpkin pie for dessert

The manager was very helpful, describing the turkey special to us, but our server left some to be desired. We specifically went looking for turkey dinner, and when placing the order, I asked our server if it was possible to get any other dessert besides the cranberry pumpkin pie as I'm not a big fan, and he explained that there was an apple crumble he may be able to switch for, but that it was unlikely as it was all a package deal. When our meals arrived, he said to us that my plate was warm and that my boyfriend's was blazing hot (had these been under heat lamps for that long?)

Tucking in, my turkey was warm on the outside and cold on the inside, but I was way too hungry to care. My boyfriend's plate was missing onion strings, so I gave him some of mine. We brought this up politely with the server, so he brought us back a cup full of them and dropped them on the table without eye contact orcommunication of any sort, as if this were a burden. We were never asked how our meals were. Our coffees were, however, kept topped up.

Now, I must give some praise - though the food was not necessarily hot, the flavour was delicious. We gazed across the table at one another several times in bliss. Absolutely wonderful.

As we finished our plates, the dessert arrived. Two pieces of cranberry pumpkin pie. Sigh. If our server had told me that he couldn't switch the pie, I would have invited them to give that piece to someone else or something. I was kind of shocked that no effort was put forward to make my meal complete to my satisfaction (I would gladly have offered to pay more for another item)! I had a bite of the pie and that was enough.

Disappointed. I doubt we will go back with so many other restaurants in the city to try out.

Hands down the worst restaurant I've ever been to across 4 continents around the world. Everything poor, service and quality of food particularly.
They're only staying open because of location, next to Safeco Stadium.
Do not even bother trying it for a meal it's utter garbage

We came here before the Billy Joel concert. Even though it was crazy busy, the food and service were great. Get the filet Mignon sliders! We got there a little early and waited in the bar for our reservation time. Even though the bar was crazy, the bartenders were on their A-game.

The restaurant had a good atmosphere and plenty of space. The food was good, but not necessarily traditional (e.g., the Caesar dressing and the Bolognese sauce were good, but not traditionally flavored). The only issue we had was the very slow service. We were there for 2 hours for lunch, when normally lunch takes us an hour or so.

It's hard to complain when not much is open christmas day and we are from out of town. With that much being said the food was pretty bad and bland as well. I got the salmon. The salmon was good but It was served with plain white rice and that really rook away from the flavor of the fish. My boyfriend got the ribeye and it was the worst steak I have ever tried. Little to no seasoning or flavor to it. I've got better a better tasting ribeye at a family owned brunch place in the small town of tracy, ca. I don't know if the kitchen was short or if the holidays put the place in a runch. Also, we ordered the pie for dessert. Not once did our server say it would be a 20 minute wait and never updated us. It was awesome, but it would have nice for her to say hey, this will take X minutes. Saying that, I would never return or recommend this place to a friend.

I have dined at Jimmy's on First several times before - for both breakfast & lunch and I have always thought the food was decent until this most recent meal, which was breakfast. I had the corned beef hash & it was terrible! The meat was so tough & chewy, I could not eat it. Do yourself a favor & don't order it! It was terrible!

Jimmy's on First doesn't have particular class (no tablecloths or flowers on tables), the food isn't absolutely great (although it is good), the waiters/waitresses aren't as well trained as you'd expect from a great restaurant (for instance, they don't know their wines), and as so many restaurants these days the TV sets are constantly on, adding to our daily information overload instead of a relaxing dining experience. On the other hand, the personnel is friendly, the ambiance overall pleasant, and their French Toast is to die for.
