after reading about this restaurant in the palm beach post was lucky to get a reservation on Saturday, I've heard that during 'the season' it's hard to get in. this is another of Delray's great farm to table restaurants. the menu is on the chalkboard and my dining partner and I shared the zucchini flowers as an appetizer because it...

We visited the restaurant on the advice of friends in the area. While we enjoyed our experience, the service and the ambiance, I can't say that the food was exceptional for the relatively high prices charged. I ordered a signature dish of the homemade mozzarella in a heirloom tomato Caprese salad and wasn't as impressed as I might have been.... More

Jimmy,s is one of the many resturants on the main drag in Delray Beach. The food was very good and the service friendly and effeicent. There are two menus. The regular and the Parma bar menu wihich is a subspecialty menu with higher prices. The salads from the Parma menu were very good. The tomato bisque came with a pastry... More

After being recommended as a must try Delray restaurant by a friend, my husband and I have been there twice now and can't wait to go back the next time we return to Delray! Jimmy's is a tiny little place so reservations are highly recommended if you want to be guaranteed a seat. There are no menus per se; the... More

This was recommended by a local resident and what a find. We would never have know it was there if we hadn't been told. We went about 8:30 after we had been at the tennis venue. Walking in we saw how crowded it was and we thought we wouldn't be able to get a table. We were immediately welcomed and... More

If we could afford to eat here every evening, we would. Fresh fish from Capt. Clay ( he has a fish store that we have used for years), local produce, fresh pasta....you have to go. Be ready to spend $125 if you like a good wine with your delicious dinner.

We ate here last year and could not wait to go back on our return to Delray Beach. It is hard to get a reservation as it is a very small place, but we were lucky and when we called in the morning we were told we could sit at the bar which turned out to be a great place... More

We eat in great places in NYC all the time and this place is in that category. We stumbled upon it as we walked from Sundy House to Atlantic Avenue to look for dinner. A small local place with fresh ingredients. We had fresh local swordfish and mahi on basmati rice with delicious but restrained sauces. Light, healthy and delicious... More

We have been dining in Delray for more than 20 years. I'm not sure when Jimmy's Bistro opened, but somehow, we never made it here before. What a mistake. If you like to dine in NYC in any of the small artisinal places that are all over Williamsburg, Tribeca, SoHo, Alphabet City, etc. where the food is special, the quarters... More
