A little disappointing. It's a cute little restaurant with a nice menu. The appetizers were good but the entrees were really not good. I ordered the Schnitzel which came on a bed of tasteless mashed potatoes. The Schnitzel was a little burned which was a turnoff. My partner ordered the Chicken Fried Chicken. There was not much difference in the... More

There are a lot of choices in Delray...save yourself some time and eat at Jimmy's Bistro. The people running this place really get it. The wine list is fantastic...affordable and delicious. The ceviche is the best I've ever had and probably ruined me for any other ceviche. The tomato bisque...amazing. All of the food is prepared with excellence...the chefs clearly... More

No restaurant has fresher fish with such simple yet innovative preparation. The atmosphere is lively and fun. The daily blackboard has food you'd never expect, from rabbit to conch fritters. The chef is very talented. Better than the top restaurants in town.

We love Jimmy's and come every visit to town. Chalkboard menu with fresh innovative ingredients and a small but varied menu. Delicious, well executed meals. Great friendly people.

Absolutely delicious Went on a recommendation of a friend but not sure of their taste profile. Well I would take a recommendation from them again anytime. Jimmy's Bistro was fantastic. Flavor profile was spot on. I had ceviche app, braised Rabbit with homemade papardelli and mirepoix entree, banana Apple tart desert and even the coffee was excellent. The wives had... More

Food in this tiny restaurant is excellent. The restaurant seats no more than 40 people, so reservations are vital. Jimmy's does fresh local catch fish, uses locally grown vegies and the menu reflects it, with the offerings chalked on a blackboard for all to see. I had rabbit atop pappardelle pasta, excellent. My companion had assorted shell fish atop squid... More

As a former New Yorker I am usually fussy about the quality of the meals in restaurants. But Jimmy's was a delight. The portions were not overwhelming but just the right size. The food was fresh and prepared with a subtlety and complexity that is hard to find. Make sure you have a reservation because this is a small place... More

I went to the bistro with a lot of expectation, but I got very disappointed with the menu which you don't know until you are in the restaurant. Was a little bit over priced and the worst part it was a half empty and they didn't gave me the reservation the time I wanted .
