While visiting Del Ray Beach, my friend and I went to Jimmy's Bistro and both had a delicious dinner. So delicious we made reservations for our next three nights. The warm fresh bread was a wonderful beginning. I ordered chicken with a balsamic reduction and it was excellent. After tasting my friend's fish with beurre blanc sauce, I ordered that... More

We've been to Jimmy's Bistro a few times and have always had a positive experience. I like that it's off the hustle bustle of Atlantic Avenue. The restaurant itself is very small but we never felt crowded in. The menu changes and is written on a chalkboard above the bar. Their fish comes from a local fisherman (they have a... More

You walk up to this place and think this must not be the place we heard such good things about. The appearance from the outside was about as unimpressive as you can imagine. Then you walk inside and your initial impression does not change. So, enough about the cover. Now to the Book. WOW - this place is great from... More

This place is small and intimate but has so many great dishes. They have a tomato bisque with a pastry on top that is so amazing, I would go there just to have that. Every dish I have had is amazing and the staff is spot on all time. The range and style of the dishes will def meet whatever... More

Jimmy's is a quaint bistro with very flavorful food. They offer a wide range from Pasta dishes, lamb, fish and great salads. Wine or beer is served. My only suggestion to Jimmys would be to change the menu board more frequently so we can go more often. Owner and Staff are awesome! Fun place, especially when Jimmy makes a surprised... More

I visited Jimmy's for the fist time last night with 6 other girlfriends for our Christmas get together. Our waitress was wonderful, she accommodated our every request with a smile. Even giving us separate checks (which I am sure is a pain). All our food was excellent. Our table ordered the Ravioli, Short Ribs, Seafood Pasta and one of the... More

We were lucky to get a table at this fun spot at the last minute. The service was amazing and very warm. We had our 99 year old grandpa with us and they were so accommodating of him. The food was delicious --- tomato soup, pear salad, different fishes and so much more! We will definitely return!

Went to Jimmy's for first time this week. Menu is written on blackboard. Food was interesting and fresh--fish, pastas, meats. All four of us enjoyed our meals (ravioli, pasta bolognese, duck and snapper). But the best part of the meal was the dessert--banana tart with chocolate and ice cream.
