“Way overpriced, mediocre food in a stuffy atmosphere”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

We had a company-sponsored dinner here with appetizers and average wine. The bill with tip came to $170 PER PERSON. I ordered a "dry-aged" ribeye for $43 expecting something special. It was dry and had gristle, more like something from a big steakhouse chain. Sides are extra. The red wine was presented with a grand show of (dirty) aerators AND a decanter. Our European guests found it strange and funny. The service was a little slow but not too bad. For this level of quality and high prices, we will not return - ever.

“Wonderful experience from start to finish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

I can't believe I’ve never been here before! From start to finish, my experience at Jimmy V's far exceeded my expectations. Some colleges of mine and I came in on a busy Wednesday night expecting to have to wait for a table because we had no reservation. The hostess was so friendly and suggested that we have a cocktail at the bar while we waited on the rest of our guests. Our guests arrived and we were promptly seated and greeted with a smile and without feeling rushed. Our server was very knowledgeable about their extensive, wonderful wine list. She also suggested great food pairings and their wonderful Jimmy V's Coffee as an after dinner drink. All of our steaks came out perfectly cooked and their sides were on the larger side but were great to share. None of us could make it to desert but their desert menu looked wonderful. I will be recommending this hidden gem to friends, family and colleges. It is a little pricey, but well worth it!

“Very Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

Very warm recepection. I sat at the bar to eat with Phillip as my bartender. He was extremely personable. Menu had a variety of items to choose from; prices are what I would expect in a restuarant such as this. The food item I had was nicely presented and had a great flavor. I would return.

“Excellant steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

This was the third business dinner i have been to here. The steaks were excellant and the service outstanding. My only issue is prices would be a little on the high side for non business meals. Having said that, there are a few other steak houses in the Raleigh area that have higher prices and the service is not as good.
If you leave ther hungry - it is your own fault. There is definitely a lot of food for the price. All the sides our group had were excellant. There is nothing you can go wrong with at Jimmy V's!!

“Avoid This Steakhouse”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

We will never visit this Steakhouse again. The service was mediocre and the food is over priced. If you order the lobster at "market price", make sure you ask what market they are playing that day. They were playing the stock market when we visited and the price was over their advertised "price range". Way over! And because we were not "regulars" we were made to feel like outsiders that were home invaders!
