This was our second time dining here and the first time was so great we couldn't wait to get back. I was a little disappointed this time as the atmosphere wasn't as warm and fuzzy as the first time. We felt rushed and the gentleman who worked behind the bar and also waited some tables was not very personable. In... More

We went with another couple who heard about Jimmys and said it's very hard to get reservations and very exclusive so we were expecting and exceptional dining experience. The place is tiny and the menu is on a blackboard which is fine. Our server was a bit odd. He kind of haunted us to hurry up and order. They probably... More

I love Jimmy's for so many reasons. It is a small family owned restaurant so you do need a reservation if possible so you can have at a table otherwise you will sit at the bar and that is alright, too. They have daily specials on a big black board and they serve, Italian, New Orleans style food as well... More

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
