Chef is owner and totally committed to his clients. He offers a different menu each night and a great imagination and skill highlight the creativity at work. The restaurant is a destination with no parking and a small and crowded seating area, which all add to the ambience. There is no ambiance otherwise, and that is part of the charm.... More

The food at this small side street joint in Delray is some of the best in the area.....what does it lack....a wine list with good stems, and the ambiance that can increase revenue and foot traffic. The food is outstanding and the service is adequate. He has a counter where you can sit or you may have a table which... More

My husband and I always seem to end up at Jimmy's for dinner each time we are visiting Delray. The place is always packed and yet they always seem to manage to squeeze us in. The food has always been fantastic - probably one of the best places to dine in all of Delray. Menu items continually change. There are... More

My first time there, and it was a pleasant experience. Wait staff knew their product, and the food was very good-, The beet and goat cheese salad had a warmed, breaded, fried, piece of goat cheese on top. We had the steamed dumplings, and Ravioli with chicken, whichwas amde with home made pasta, and was quite light. .

We stayed at the Sundy House and noticed this restaurant on our way to Atlantic Blvd. I cannot say enough good things. This definitely feels like a local place. It is small and reservations are definitely needed. The food is of a farm to table concept, and was excellent. I saw other reviews about the service being poor, but we... More

The food was good not great. Kitchen seemed to have issues as main courses came at different times and one was overcooked maybe it was under warming lights too long.

anyone who doesn't like the food here must have been having a bad day. The only problem is being able to get a reservation.

Everything they serve is purchased and cooked the same day. Great pride in taste and presentation. Very limited seating so arrange for reservations.
