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 .

Jimmy's is "off the avenue" and a nice spot if you want a good meal in an intimate atmosphere without all the fuss of Atlantic Avenue. Less than a block off Atlantic Avenue, this owner/chef has created a comfortable and intimate restaurant with outstanding food. The menu is printed on a chalk board behind the bar and features many locally... More

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
