Mediterranean

The Jimmy is a neighborhood restaurant that takes its cue from the Mediterranean coasts of Italy and France, a region known for its casual, sunwashed elegance and unhurried pace.

(nice to meet you)

It is a celebration of an influential cuisine that is in turn influenced by many others, one that favors communal cooking, local ingredients, and straightforward preparations.

    We had a great experience overall. We loved the ambience on the outside patio. The food was wonderful. Our waiter was fine but ,sadly, forgot to bring around some parmesan cheese after promising to do so. We will definitely be back!

    Food was excellent and atmosphere on the patio was very pleasant. The service was a bit sub-par. A bit slow at each point of the dinner, and slow on drink refills, etc. Other than that it was a pleasant first visit to the restaurant. We will probably return, but the less than ideal service will be remembered when we’re deciding on the next time.

    Love this restaurant. Have been on multiple occasions but only had pizza. Tonight we tried two pasta dishes. The lamb dish was quite rich, the penne with sausage was spicy, but not overly spicy. Both pastas were delicious as was the strawberry salad.

    Mother's Day lunch was fantastic! Loved the pre set menu. Service was wonderful. Also worth noting that we were greeted with "Happy Mother's Day' greetings from the hostess stand, to the wait staff. My mom and I had a lovely time and felt special.

    The service and food were good but seems the entree portions have been cut in half since my last visit. $18 for an entree salad half its original size (i.e., now a dinner salad portion) with no protein is a bit overpriced. The pasta entrees are smaller as well. Despite the smaller portions and The Jimmy passing along inflation costs, it is still a nice place to dine with friends.

    Delicious. We really appreciated the chef’s accommodation for food allergies by replacing bell pepper for crostini on the chicken liver starter. We were with friends and were all really glad we could enjoy the patio.

    The service here was excellent. Our server Shawn was super knowledgeable and helpful and did a great job of making us feel welcome. Highly recommend asking to be seated in his section. The food did not blow me away, but it was definitely a solid good. I liked the format of the pizza but it seemed to be lacking salt, so it had very little flavor. The pappardelle was really good I highly recommend it. The salad was nice and they had just updated to the strawberry salad so it tasted very fresh and seasonal. Overall a good meal and great service.

    We have been here a lot lately, and can't help but get the Caesar salad, which is great. Discovered the pizza with asparagus, pistachio and prosciutto last time, and couldn't pass it up again. Service was great, as always with Kaylene. Spoke with the general manager, Ernie, and found out he previously worked at Quince, a great restaurant in San Francisco. Also a Johnson and Wales grad, which is why he came back to Charlotte. We are lucky to have him!

    We sat outside, beautiful weather, wonderful waiter, I had the pasta--shrimp with celery pesto, spicy oil, and some kind of crunchy topping (maybe bread and nuts ground down to little pieces). Was wonderful and just enough. Another diner had gnocchi with beets. She said it was very good but not enough of it. Other two had a salad with salami and a lot of other stuff (can't remember) and they both loved it. Will definitely return. Thanks Jim Noble for always creating dining experiences that are creative, consistent and yummy.

    The Jimmy continues to impress and has become our “go-to” spot for not only great food, but a great staff and service. The environment is lively and I love how you can see the kitchen from the dinning room. This restaurant is one of the best managed restaurants we’ve seen in Charlotte and a must visit if you like Mediterranean fare. Thanks to the entire team at The Jimmy for a consistently great experience!

    The staff was personable. The food was mediocre at best. The salad was overdressed. My friend had the penne and sausage dish and the penne was undercooked, not al dente, but undercooked. It also was lacking in flavor. I had the mussel pasta special. It was an interesting combo of mussels in a soupy saffron broth with chickpeas, peppers and acini de Pepe. It was served with toasted bread that tasted of lighter fluid. The dish itself was meh, lacking in flavor. The management was kind and comped a dessert due to our dissatisfaction with our meal. We choose the lemon ricotta cake. It was good, but could have used some lemon zest to bump the palate up a bit. Was hoping for a better experience. Likely will not be back.

    The menu is great and the restaurant is aesthetically pleasing, but not suited for small tables of 2-3. The seating is tight for smaller tables, you can have a mini two top and we had to scoot in and out every time someone had walk by to their larger table. The food is great and very quick to come out, but too tight.

    The reason I rated service as a three was our meal started out on a less than positive note. Our server came up to us almost immediately upon sitting down and asked for our drink order. I asked for a few minutes to look over the wine list. We did not see the server again. I mentioned this to one of the dining room mangers. He instantly took our drink order and got our drinks. The server finally returned and apologized. admitting she forget about our table We gave her our order. The dining room manger, Ernie, came back several times to make sure everything was going well and asking if we enjoyed our dinner. Because of Ernie and his service I will definitely be returning.

    We both wear hearing aids and the noise level for people our age who eat out frequently is horrible. We would like to see an attempt made in restaurants to play low key relaxing music if any and to provide more sound absorbing methods. I know people who stop eating out and we are in that group because the noise distracts from the whole experience. We are going to eat at Noble Smoke this Friday and I hope it will be less noisy. Mostly we have eaten there when we dined outside. Please all restaurants cut the noise pollution. We have that enough with mowers and blowers and traffic. Dining out should not be a screaming contest. Thank you for reading this.
