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.

When I sent back an over-cookrd meal it appeared on my bill. When I asked the owner to remove the charge he refused to do so

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.

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.
