Ive been waiting to get into Jimmy's for about 4 different seasons and went early this year and hit the head on the nail by not having to wait long for a seating! Well worth it and was better then we thought it to have been from the rumors to be sure to try to get in!!

From the very wonderful friendly Host to the fine knowledgeable Waiter when ordering our wine and food, the Chief's meals delivered to us was better then could have been found anywhere in the area. Thanks again and see you in the winter season if we get so lucky to a booking with you to dine again!

Overall food was good. My friend had one of their specials - halibut. It came on a bed of grilled corn. For the price of $44, she felt the price was too high for the lacking side although she did say the halibut was prepared perfectly. We both enjoyed the crab stack and I liked my cioppino. Service was good. Waited a little bit for check to be picked up since waiter was serving a huge party also.

Only snag was restaurant reported to Opentable that we didn't show up for our reservation. Don't appreciated that snafu when we spent $100+ on dining there.

The food was good, price was to be expected for a resort town. Service was good at the beginning and then our waiter just disappeared towards the end of our meal. Never asked about drinks once we received our first one. Had to wait for 30 minutes after we finished our meal before waiter came to check on us and to get the check.

Last night in Mammoth and we wanted a special meal. These guys delivered. We loved the flaming cheese, the 6 dipping sauces, the loup de mer - cooked to perfection. what a great night and meal. Only weird thing with all this excellent cooking my son's risotto was way undercooked. He ate the entire thing and said it was interesting to eat. I tasted it, it was only partially cooked. If they had cooked it correctly WOW!!!! The meal would have been perfection.

All was good except for my Mushroom Risotto which was not good at all. Specifically, it was dry, pasty and flavorless. I am still kicking myself for not mentioning this to our waiter at the time but I was trying to turn over a new less-grumpy leaf in my life. I guess it was my mistake for ordering it at a Greek fish restaurant but then I have found that not every restaurant offers it and when they do it is usually excellent. My order had the consistency and taste of "left over from yesterday". My mistake, as I admit, but all else was good - waiter, service, ambience, etc. - even the extra large round cheese wafer they jammed upright into the middle of the dish. It was Holy Week after all.

Always love coming to this place when we are in Mammoth. Our table ordered the Greek salad, poached pear salad, the halibut, and king crab legs. The seafood was fresh and delightful. The salads were awesome! We also finished with the chocolate flourless torte which was to die for. I definitely recommend this place! It is certainly our new favorite place in mammoth.

Unfortunately, our order was completely lost and we waited for well over an hour for entrées after everyone around us had been served, even those who came in very late after us. At the time my entrée arrived, it was cold and was not cooked through and was obviously hurried. I sent it back. The waiter did a good job accommodating us as did the manager by offering a free glass of wine, an additional salad, and we took a dessert home without charge. It ended up being a long pretty frustrating dinner. The food at Jimmy's is very good and I have eaten there before and will again but this was very disappointing as I brought special guests with me and touted the restaurant ahead of time as to how good it was.

The food was okay (particularly the flaming cheese, which was excellent). Service was fine. Nice decor. Restaurant was extremely quiet, but not too surprising for a Sunday night.

The menu listed on OpenTable is not the real menu. There is no burger, there are no gyros. Everything that remain is substantially more expensive; the cheapest entree was around $25. This felt like a bait 'n switch, particularly since I went with some price-conscious friends, carefully selected a restaurant that looked good, and proceeded to drag the group into a more expensive meal than anticipated.

That's the opposite of hospitality. Update your menu online.

A little gem that I've overlooked for the past few years. Great ambiance and even tastier food. Great place for dinner with your significant other or even a good sized group. Fresh fish, huge cuts of meat, and great wines. Portions run large; shareable with the addition of appetizers, or filling enough after a hard day skiing.

Great, fine dining in the heart of Mammoth that still retains that fun, cozy vibe you expect in a ski resort town. Probably the best fish you can get in Mammoth. Tons of tasty starters, salads and mains. You can eat heavy or keep it light. Highly recommend and will go back again.

We are from LA and don’t know many restaurants up here but this came up on open table and all of the reviews were great. Had some boarders on the hill suggest it as well and it was delicious!! The portions for some things are on the smaller side— such as the Spanikopita (spelling) — but so yummy! The lamb is a must have!!

I absolutely love this place. From the greetings of the Maite d’, to the amazing servers— congratulations to Stewart on the birth of his son... Tonight while we waited for our wine to decant (recommended to us by the Sommelier on our last visit- Chip— a ‘98 Chateau Musar from the Bekka Valley in Lebanon( ( delicious, unusual, full-bodied, deep earthy tones, no tanniny bite... )) Stewart brought us a lovely brut champagne to keep us busy. The kumo oysters were simple and buttery- great with the champagne; as were the babaganoush and spicy feta and garlic dip. Their ceviche with shrimp, calamari, and sacallops— tender, fresh, and so juicy. My husband had the moussaka— fabulous, especially served piping hot on this cold winter day! I had their special... a Surf and Turf Oscarof filet done very rare the way I like with tender lobster on top. I had the bernaise on the side and it was difficult not to lick the bowl clean. And the mashed potatoes with black truffles— mmm!... served with tender perfectly prepared asparagus. The executive chef,
Jeremy, came to check up on us and we wound up having a wonderful conversation. He was completely available to answer our questions and take care of us. The place was busy, always seems to be... but we always feel like we are the only ones there!!! We arrived so early today that Chip, the Sommelier hadn’t arrived yet. When he did he came over to see us and “catch up”— what a smart, elegant, gentle-man!!! And to top it off, the bartender remembered us from our previous visit (we’ve been here twice but I feel like I’ve been coming here for years) and despite that we had been sipping a peach cognac with our goat cheesecake and berries, he came over to mention that he remembered running out of the peaty Scotch I had wanted and now wanted to present me with it— an Ardbergh!!!! The whole evening was fabulous from stem to stern. We’ll be back next week!!! Definitely 5-Stars all the way!!!!

The food was delicious, not strictly Greek but rather pan-Mediterranean with big delectable doses of Italy and Lebanon. I loved the muhammara. Prices are rather high but the food and service were great, so we're happy; we of modest budget will reserve Jimmy's for very special occasions. And we'll stand back when they ignite the saganaki. I think they were experimenting with flame height that night. Opa indeed!
