Jimmy's at The Landing Resort & Spa Ratings and Reviews
Pros- Salmon was perfectly cooked. Everyone thought their food was unique, tasty, not over-seasoned. Quiet atmosphere. Kelly's service was spot-on, not overbearing but always seemed to be around when needed. Superb wine list.
Cons- Tables are set up so half get to see a gorgeous sunset over the water, half have their backs to it. I hate facing a wall. The water person wore an extremely heavy scent that I found very overpowering and distracting from the food and wine.
We arrived early and had drinks at the bar. The bartender and the drinks were outstanding. It is also worth going just for the views of Lake Tahoe alone. My husband had the lamb and it was outstanding. I had shrimp wrapped in filo dough which was also great. The only complaint was the risotto which was extremely salty.
After hearing that this was one of the top restaurants in the area my wife and I were quite disappointed in the food itself. Service and ambiance were decent enough but the lamb was served raw when medium rare was requested. The gnocchi was a bowl full of heavy cream that overshadowed any semblance of fresh pasta, should it have been there anyway. The tiger shrimp fried starter was so heavily deep fried it resembled something that you'd expect at a dive bar not a fine dining establishment.
For what it's worth the hotel seemed cute and boutiquey though we weren't staying there. Unfortunately I can't in good conscience recommend this restaurant though.
Dinner was delicious and the service was spectacular! Everyone from the hostess, our waiter, & the wine specialist was amazing and really made our night extra nice. We even got free dessert! I would definitely recommend this place for dinner and we will be back to stay with the resort next time as well!
My husband I and dined here for our anniversary. Although it's winter and we couldn't see the lake, the atmosphere is great and during the summer it would be nice. It's quiet, smaller dining room with small outer dining and bar area where pianist was playing. He was good and the live music was a nice touch. Waiter was a bit pretentious and slow to wait on us for drinks and, we noticed, we did not receive near the frequent stopovers that customers with different waiters had. But he gave us free corkage and one free dessert at the end of the night because my husband offered him (early on) a taste of the Del Dotto cab that we brought into the restaurant. We found the food lacking. Husband ordered Moussaka which was a special, and I ordered filet mignon but didn't want it on the ragout they offered so server offered it over Risotto, which was nice of the waiter to offer. But I have to say the filet was bland and dry. Although I ordered it medium well, I asked to have it butterflied, which it was, but not a drop of juice was left in it, and it wasn't overlooked--it was definitely medium well when it was brought out. My husband felt the Moussaka had too much of a clove taste. He's had this many times before at different restaurants and says it's wonderful when it doesn't taste like a dessert. We had creme brûlée for dessert which was great. Also, the Wedge salad was well prepared with dressing and smoky bacon-and they did a nice job of splitting it for us. We Try again once more, but will be more particular about what we order.
We (4 people) had the price fix menu for Valentines Day. The choices were fabulous, and we shared all of the items we selected. Our server, Matt, was great - very personable and attentive. The cocktails were masterfully mixed. The ambiance is classy without being stuffy. One of the best restaurant experiences on the South Shore of Lake Tahoe!
1) Reservations: @opentable took care of that
2) Location: Upscale resort in South Lake Tahoe, right next to beach with great view during day.
3) Service: Very professional, punctual, and personable
4) Drink: Quality wine selection and with a creative cocktail menu
5)Food: Fresh Seafood!! Flavorful delights in every plate we ordered....tempura shrimp was my fav small plate, and the lamb is a plate everyone needs to try once while in Tahoe
Fantastic hidden gem!!!! Took my team there for dinner following our end of year national meeting and was impressed with the staff and chef. I have been to Lake Tahoe hundreds of times and was referred here by the concierge of a large hotel across state line (name unmentioned) which said a LOT. Boy did they hit it out of the park!!! Fantastic environment, great food, and excellent wait staff was attentive and considerate at the same time.
Let's put it this way. We're coming back. This restaurant was recommended my our daughter. We had the potato leek soup which was delicious and shared the rack of lamb with taziki sauce and orzo. My husband is not an orzo lover but he loved this one. It was in a blt of broth with fresh cut tomatoes and cucumber and a hint of fresh garlic. We finished the meal with molten chocolate cake which gelato. Everything was perfect: fresh tasting and full of flavor. This was really elegant dining at it best with a terrific friendly wait staff. Unfortunately, we were there off-season so the lively bar was very quiet. We didn't care because we normally drink wine and they had a very nice and reasonably priced wine list.
The restaurant ambience is quite nice. The service was very high end, somewhat pretentious at times. When you ask for a wine list from the waiter, the waiter should bring it, not try to read your mind and bring what he likes. The spinach salad was good, and the Cocktails are wonderful. I had the lamb entree with the Orzo, and there was literally zero seasoning in the entire dish. My wife had the gnocchi and it at least had some flavor, however I do not recommend the lamb dish and I especially do not recommend the orzo. This was our third time here and definitely the most disappointing with respect to the taste of the food. Pricey place as well so be prepared to spend some cash at this place.
The chef went out of his way to make me dishes in accordance with my extensive list of food allergies for 4 nights in a row, which included going on special shopping trips for items. He even read my mind one evening by getting me tuna. We enjoyed a variety of great wines & craft beers. The view/atmosphere is always amazing.
My only critacisum is that the menu needs to be expanded. To few choices of main dishes. I had the Lamb and it was very good. A couple more seasonal dishes would add to the dining experience.
We sat outside with heaters in place and it couldn't have been more enjoyable. Loved the ombiance of the outdoor space.
Great food and service. We had a fantastic meal with top notch service. They waiter recommened the perfect bottle of wine to pair with both of our meals. I had the fish...it was fresh and had just the right amount of flavor. My husband had the steak and was blown away. He said it was easily the top three! We cant wait to come back.
We can heartily recommend this restaurant. Both ladies, Andrea the receptionist and Cody, our waitress did everything they could to make us happy and comfortable.
The food was delicious. What a great experience, great food, great service, beautiful view over Lake Tahoe. We will be back
