About 6 years ago, we went to this restaurant one weekend and loved it. The food was excellent; the service unbelievable. I rarely write reviews on bad restaurants but I feel compelled in this case. Today, we went to this restaurant for mothers days brunch. It was pathetic. We arrived at 2pm. It was a buffet. The scrambled eggs had... More

While the food was okay (really nothing exciting and certainly NOT exceptional!) we felt the service rushed us to make a selection, eat and leave -- In the midst of the "rush" a large group of 9-10 men were seated NEXT to us (the establishment KNEW there was a large party arriving as the table(s) were set) -- Since there...

My daughter-in-law's mom's friends hosted a bridesmaid luncheon at Jimmy V's on March 31, 2017 and it was beautiful. The setting was intimate and food and service wonderful. They accommodated my daughter's gluten restriction perfectly when other restaurants/venues during the weekend missed the mark. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for individual or group dining.

Attended a financial seminar at this location. The place is very nice and comfortable. All people who were working for the restaurant very polite. I selected a 12" NY Sirloin Steak - excellent. Mash potatoes were delicious. The service people for the tables were excellent and I never had to call them over to refill my water glass. When I... More

This is a nice intimate restaruant with good food. The service is excellent and the selection really good. A great selection of wines in particular was great. I would definitely recommend it. The New York Strip steak is to die for

Way overpriced. Steak served with nothing but a giant ice cream scoop sized bowl full of butter! Service mediocre. Save your $ and just go to Outback.

We went to celebrate our 37 wedding anniversary. This was our first time visiting and could not have been more pleased. Our server (Savannah) was friendly and attentive. The food was excellent.

If the restaurant had been busy or anyone had indicated there was an issue in the kitchen, we would have been fine but no service, no communication and open tables leaves no room for the excuses we heard for the slow service and the overdone seared tuna and rubbery overdone scallops. For this alleged top quality eatery, we were more... More
