Food was ok but service was awesome. Veal chop and pork chop were both good, but my king crab risotto was quite disappointing. Other than the few pieces of crab meat on top there were none in the risotto. The description had saffron and some kind of blood orange broth but none of that flavor were detected. Plus kinda oily and arrived luke warm but waiter realized and warmed it up for me. For $39 risotto I expect a better version.
Always enjoy our time at Jimmy’s. Beautiful decor, excellent food, first class service. Food is a little pricey.
We absolutely love this restaurant- the sommelier and the waiters make it so enjoyable. Wine is the best selection of all varietals and the menu is fabulous. Our go to for an amazing evening
Restaurant ambience is beautiful with a sense of dining in on one of the Greek islands. The food portions are good and quality is EXCELLENT. Wine selection was great and a salmonier gives suggestions on bottles. The waiters of our two tables were mediocre with checking in on our appetizers and meals. The food is much better than the service and the reason why I’ll return to the restaurant on my next visit to Mammoth. Aside, not a young kid restaurant as menu is pricey and no children’s menu items.
We had an outstanding dinner at Jimmy's Taverna while on a Mammoth Ski Trip. It was -- by far -- the best meal we've ever had in Mammoth. And the service was outstanding. Kudos!!!
We had a perfect time. Expansive wine list and great food. Our service was fantastic.
The food was inconsistent. The hollandaise over crab on the special was congealed and darkening by the time it made it to the table. The moussaka didn't even seem fully-cooked, it was little more than ground lamb (which was cooked) and crunchy eggplant (yeah, I don't know how they did that) under a sea of unappetizing bechamel. The mushroom risotto was the most strongly tarragon-flavored thing I've ever tasted. The sampler of dips was quite nice as was the steak preparation. Deserts were fine - not great, but nothing to complain about.
Nice space, though. It was much more pleasant in person than the online photos made it seem.
Our waiter was fantastic and helped us with a great wine choice.
The bartender and all other servers were very helpful. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals and overall experience. Good park, steak and fish.
Great food. loved the dips. very nice and helpful waiter. nice ambiance. would definitely go back.
The seafood ciopinno and medium rare plus filet steak were excellent. The sommelier Chip was great!
No vibe. Horrible food and awkward service.
Food was great, not what I would expect for such a reasonably priced place. The atmosphere was fun - Greek themed, nice lights and music, but not too crowded. Serving staff and bartender went out of their way to make sure we were served quickly. We loved it so much that my son and I came back the next day after a long day of skiing to try some of their other dishes. We are Mediterranean food junkies and this place went above and beyond our expectations. We’ll be back for sure next time we are in Mammoth Lakes!
We had dinner to celebrate our daughter’s 9th birthday while in town to ski. The service was exceptional! What appeared to be the owners came by to check on us and we’re both very engaging and pleasant. One sang happy birthday for our daughter. The food was great. This was our first visit and we will definitely be return customers.
We enjoyed our dinner experience at Jimmy's overall. The service was great. Our frito misto appetizer was delicious. I ordered the Greek salad. It was very good. However, we had some issues. The filet entree my husband ordered arrived with cold mashed potatoes and asparagus. Now, they did correct the mistake immediately. However, we were the first guests at the restaurant and they weren't busy yet so there really wasn't an excuse for that. Also, they need more kids options. If you are going to a restaurant in a family-friendly city, you should have a kids menu. The options we were given were limited and the one we ordered was lacking flavor. I loved the ambience and would go back.. just think there are some improvements that could be made.
The food was amazing. I have been there numerous times and sometimes the service is good and sometimes it’s so-so to terrible. I think when the servers have their “regulars” then others tend to get ignored.
One of if not THE best restaurant in Mammoth Lakes. The setting makes you feel you are on a Greek island waiting for the fisherman to come in. It is a beautiful replica of a fishing village, which during the winter in Mammoth is a beautiful and brilliant contrast. The food is exceptional, especially the fish dishes. I highly recommend the fisherman's stew. The specialty appetizer of fried cheese is presented with great theatrics. The wine list is one of the best in the State of California. They also have a marvelous beer list and creative cocktails. Every member of the staff go out of their way to make your experience fantastic. It is often hard to get in, especially for a large party, so book early. You will not be disappointed.
This restaurant is a hidden gem! Beautifully decorated, open and comfortable. Chip the Wine Director was so helpful and attentive guiding us to the perfect choices! Appetizers and the Main course was superb, perfectly seasoned & fresh. Can't wait to visit again...
Risotto was the worse I have ever tasted. Server had no soul.
absolutely wonderful experience! Great service, excellent food. Lovely atmosphere. If you are in Mammoth you must make a reservation.
I enjoyed the environment of the restaurant along with the amazing food. Perfect taste.
We make it a point to dine at Jimmy's every trip we make to Mammoth. We love the ambiance, the food is excellent, the wine list is fantastic, and the service is superb. Consistently a great experience!
All right, I thought the ambiance was great; it’s a small restaurant, cozy, mediterranean, quite ideal for a date night, the cocktails were delicious and at this point one gets great expectations about the food, which was okay but nothing remarkable. I had far better food at home.
They have an extensive wine list, an appealing menu that offers pretty much the usual quality comfort food; we ordered mushroom risotto, king crab risotto, and the lamb. Fair portions, nicely served, very mild and unimpressive flavors. Do not expect “author cuisine” but do expect the high prices.
It’s a bit pretentious, I’m okay when the servers say “OOOPA!” every time some dish in flames is coming out of the kitchen but I do not see the point in repeating OOOPA! after them, every single time. People should know that this doesn’t make them more Greek or authentic than the rest of the clientele.
You might get rushed as well. They want you to order and shortly after your order gets to the table they want you to order again soon. They probably expected the two drinkers in my table to drain fast that bottle of wine that was also a bit expensive but not impressive; so that we could order soon the dessert, which we didn’t of course.
Do not go if you dislike the smell of food in your clothes and hair.
Amazing food. Every appetizer and entree we had was delicious. Beautiful decor, felt like I was in Greece.
We had so cha great time thank you Stuart and Carlos for making this so cha great memory
Great wine list by the glass, by half-bottle, and by the bottle. Whole grilled fish is my favorite. More seafood options than other places in Mammoth.
Celebrated my husbands 30th birthday, we brought outside cake, it was a surprise! Staff did a lovely job, food was delicious and we were a party of 10, which they accommodated a large table. Thanks again!
The atmosphere was surprising pleasant, couldn’t really tell from the exterior. Our cocktails were great, food was good, but overpriced. Will consider returning once I’ve tried more Mammoth restaurants!
Birthday-fun- flaming cheese!
Excellent food, poorly timed service. Would have rated higher if the service was better, but the service brought down the whole dining experience.
Our dinner at Jimmy’s Taverna in Mammoth Lakes was the best! We were overwhelmed by the depth of the wine list. The Wine Director, Chip, listened carefully to what our entrées were, and selected the perfect pairing that pleased all our guests.
The food, the preparation, and the attention to detail by the service staff was second to none. Jimmy’s Taverna will be at the top of our list as we travel to Mammoth several times a year. This place is not to be missed! Don’t hesitate to ask Chip the Wine Director, for his suggestions, he’s batting 1000!
Wonderful atmosphere and good food. It took a little too long for our food to arrive, but we were a party of 10.
Once we walked into the restaurant itself, we were very impressed. The wine expert, Chip, was quite fun and especially accommodating. We had two birthdays in our party, and he went out of his way to get the right Chardonnay for me and took my son into the wine room itself. The food was delicious, the wine yummy, the ambiance very inviting. If I could change one thing, it would be the lack of greeting and accommodation in the tiny little lobby shared by two restaurants. We were worried for those first few five minutes, but the actual dining experience was wonderful. Definitely give it a try!!
Server was really nice and attentive:)
Food, everything was okay but that “Parmigiano crisp” on the top of mushroom risotto was Not crispy, like hard plastic so couldn’t eat. Also Grilled Octopus Salad, the green(I forgot name)was very sandy so can’t finish to eat as well.
Our family has been going here for years during our annual ski trip . Last year we had a terrible experience but thought it was just a bad night, but again this year we experienced the worst service (and the restaurant was only 1/4 full) cold food was served and there was hair in our food.
This restaurant was decent, but way over priced for the quality of food and service at restaurant. There are plenty of other restaurants with equal quality food.
Far and away the best restaurant in mammoth lakes. Worth coming just for the pita bread and dips. Loupe de mer is fantastic. Great ambience.
Wait staff was horrible and rude and the owner drunk off his butt.
Great food and great server
