My husband and I went to Jimmy's Taverna for the first time last week, while we were in Mammoth. Wow, what a wonderful experience! The decor is beautiful. Service was great and our waitress Melissa was really helpful with selections and a delight to talk with. We started with the grilled octopus, which was done to perfection. Octopus by nature can be chewy, not the case here. It was perfect. The Greek salad was fresh and crisp, with the best feta I have ever had. We then sampled the stuffed calamari, definetly worth it! As our entree we shared the black cod that was amazing. Finally we finished with the chocolate cream brulee, again WOW!!! If you ever up in the Mountains make sure to visit this amazing Greek restaurant.

Our daughter wanted us to go to Jimmy's as she had, had a great dinner there. We went thinking this will be ok, not great. It was really, really good! Loved the decor, as well.

I've been trying to review this place since opening night, and actually requested that TripAdvisor add it. Jimmy's is a fabulous new addition to Mammoth's ever changing dining scene. Upstairs from the also cool Red Lantern, it rivals the White Bark for style. Behind the bar, a huge, backlit photograph from Greece sets the scene. The food is terrific, starting with the octopus. For those who are into big food, the portions are large. The "dips" can easily serve as appetizers, the appetizers as mains. The souvlaki are expected, but excellent. All are perfect for sharing.

Jimmy's troika in Mammoth - Rafters, Red Lantern and the Taverna, are all great, but this is our favorite.

We had dinner at Jimmy's last night with a group of nine. The food (which is Greek) was delicious. Amongst us, we tried many different dishes, and they are all very good. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere was very pleasant. We will definitely be back.
