Jimmy's at The Landing Resort & Spa Ratings and Reviews
We dined here recently with friends. Our service was horrendous. Shame on us for not asking to speak to the manager. We ordered octopus and our waiter, Joe, came back to tell us that it wasn't available, it was only 7pm. Then after we ordered it was aLONG wait for our entrees. Our waiter came to us to tell us that there were no mushrooms and our risotto could not be had, we chose another dish. Finally after a long time it was delivered to our table, it was fine, but our friends duck was stone cold. They did not return it and chose to eat it only because we had already waited for well over an hour When our waiter came to see how we were he asked "if we were enjoying our snacks". We had entrees that we were sharing, they were not snacks! He offered us a complimentary dessert for our troubles. Really, our entree should have been comped.
Ridiculous service. And we will not be back and we will let our friends know about this. Both the waiter and the kitchen failed. For a high end place we had very subpar service.
This place came highly recommended - and I get what there is to like...it was posh and well-appointed and had a good vibe. But, the menu was limited and the food was really pricey for what you received. There are SO many other great local places in Tahoe I would recommend to my friends over this place. You'll get a good meal and great service, but you'll also have a much thinner wallet when you leave there, too.
We went to Jimmy's for our date night and were VERY pleased. From start to finish our experience was perfect. Great staff and amazing food. We had the ribeye and rack of lamb, which were both fantastic. The only criticism would be of the potatoes that came with the ribeye...they were pretty bland and basic. The live music made it fun as well. I appreciated that we didn't feel rushed out of our meal either. We would definitely go back!
Our server was excellent, really took care of us. Unfortunately there was 2-3 menu items not available that evening, but the entrees we ordered we very good.
I was disappointed with the wedge salad, the dressing wasn't what I was used to and the lettuce was not crisp.
Came here for the first time for a Birthday get away. Definitely will be back. Staff was friendly. Our server Matt was excellent, very knowledgeable about wine and food. We had a great time! We were seated by the glass doors that completely opened and there was a fire pit right outside the door. I can't wait to come back. My first experience was PERFECT!!
We dined at Jimmy's six times during our stay at The Landing - three dinners and three breakfasts. Breakfast was outstanding. The menu was perfect, food was excellent, and service was great. Dinner was a different story. The servers were inconsistent - our first night was terrible, and the following two nights were fair. The food is good, but overpriced, and there are few vegetarian/vegan and lighter options. The wine list is great, and the cocktails were good but overpriced. The convenience to the hotel is great, and the outdoor seating is terrific.
Since we made an OT reservation, we expected a nice table. We were led past 2 tables with Lake views into a dark room, where one of us would have their backs to the lake. While we discussed it, 2 more couples were seated at the passed tables. Still we let the hostess know and they quickly rectified the situation by seating us outside lakeside. Much better and it really never got too chilly out there. Being of Greek heritage we were excited to try this restaurant. Unfortunately, they were out of the octopus, no house made ice cream and we were told as soon as we were seated that if we wanted the special salmon for the evening, we would have to tell them NOW. It was a Monday night so I do understand some of these challenges. We ordered Kataifi to start and it was really delicious, different and a great choice. It was rather small though so we decided to add a Greek Salad to share. It was split in the kitchen for us. All ingredients were fresh but to improve it - should have been more chilled, more EVOO and perhaps some fresh or dried oregano. I had the rack of lamb, well presented, cooked as ordered and very delicious. The accompanied orzo was very welcomed but it was a tad oily and needed some salt. My other half had the chicken. The plate was delicious with well flavored chicken, crispy potatoes and nicely prepared brussel sprouts. The plating though was uninspired. For dessert, they surprised us with making fresh Loukoumades (Greek donuts). We had asked and they delivered as they are only on the breakfast menu. The donuts themselves were freshly made, however, very chewy. The 3 sauces served with were all excellent. Service was outstanding. Our waitperson was personable, knowledgeable and really went above and beyond. Great wine list, too. We will definitely go back on our next trip to Tahoe.
We had a wonderful experience at Jimmy's thanks to Matt our server. He not only was extremely attentive and acute at determining our needs for the meal, but he helped us pair each course with a delicious wine. The lamb and paella were delightful, especially with the barolo red we had and then the creme brulee for desert along with the port wine was one of the best pairings I have had to date. This was a special occasion as it was anniversaries for both couples in our group, and the service and food did not disappoint! The food may be considered pricey but it was well worth it. We will definitely return on our next stop in Tahoe.
We are staying at the resort and had both dinner and breakfast at Jimmy's. Both meals were amazing! The homemade gnocchi melted in my mouth and the lemon ricotta pancakes were delicious! Loved being able to sit outside and see the lake! Jimmy's is a "must do" when visiting Lake Tahoe!
I loved this restaurant so much that we visited it twice during our vacation. We stayed at The Landing and had breakfast reservations in the morning. We were seated inside at a table in the corner with a fireplace and a beautiful view of the mountains. Our breakfast was amazing & we came back the next day to sit outside by a fire pit and enjoyed an awesome cheese plate & a bottle of wine. I will come again next time we are in Tahoe
My chicken was room-temp and overcooked. The white wine was also served at room temp. Very disappointed because the decor and the ambiance of the restaurant led us to expect it to be as high-end as hotel. Unfortunately, they are better at decorating than cooking.
We came for Mothers Day breakfast. The food was wonderful. our party of four ordered bacon waffles, lemon curd pancakes, egg benedict with potatoes, sourdough French toast with berries and a side of bacon. everybody enjoyed every bite. The coffee was perfect. The waiter was friendly and attentive. We had a table by the window which looks out over the lake. The view does look through a wrought iron fence to the lake. I believe they have an upstairs deck that would look over that fence, but it is outdoors. It didn't bother us, but might bother some people. The waiter offered us a to-go cups for our coffees - Super!
It was our 8th time at Jimmy's and for sure the best of all.
The food was amazing and very tasty.
We had and recommend Zucchini Keftedes, Tomato Baklava, Tomato stuffed with Halibut, Gnocchi
For always being in a restaurant when we are in Tahoe, we think it is one of the very best.
We will be back
We had an outstanding experience at Jimmy's. We had a nice conversation with the cook, Bam. He was extremely personable and it made our experience 10 times better. The food was incredible! The spinach salad was the best spinach salad I've ever had. I had the lamb and the flavor was outstanding! There was quite a bit of fat on the bone but I think that's probably normal. My wife had salmon which was dreamy. Our breakfasts there were also wonderful. The staff there were all wonderful--very welcoming and warm. Thanks for everything!
Jimmy's at The Landing in S. Lake Tahoe was pretty amazing. we had a reservation but opted to sit at the bar as we find it much more fun to do so. The bartender Brittany was super friendly and a great help with the menu. A Greek themed menu was delightful. The zucchini fritters (I forget the Greek name) were so good for starters we ordered more! The we shared the whole Greek style fish which was life changing. We were out the door for $200 with vino but it was a meal and evening to remember!
Wow, so happy I found this place!!!! First of all...service!! Brittany and Matt (and team) took care of me but the chef was also around to all tables to make sure everything was completely satisfactory.
The food was excellent - enjoyed the wedge salad followed by a nice ribeye (couldn't finish it) with asparagus and roasted potatoes. Everything not only tasted delicious but was presented beautifully.
The wine list was comprehensive - they have a good list of older vintages but know that there might be times when a particular vintage is sold out when looking at the older ones (nothing wrong with that!). My '06 Heitz Martha's Vineyard was excellent!
The live music is perfectly paired to the environment (a soloist with a guitar who had me tapping my foot to the music) and the view is beyond compare (you are across the street from the beach so beautiful lake and mountain views).
Will definitely return!
