Classy atmosphere, festive flaming cheese - OPA! Gourmet seafood and filet mignon, great wine chosen by Chip, the sommelier, top-notch service. The flourless chocolate cake is the best I've ever had. Thoroughly impressed our son on his 26th birthday.

Some really good Greek dishes such as beef and lamb kebobs, sampler dips with hummus, spanakopita, and flaming cheese brought to your table. Also had rack of lamb and a special that night was a filed topped with dungeness crab.

The waiter proposed suggestion of the day: Colorado lamb chops, without telling the price in advance. What I got were 4 little chops and had to pay 45 USD for it. What a rip off. Misleading consumers!

We've been coming to mammoth for years most ski season weekends and always eat at jimmys taverna. It's not at all like mammoth. Instead it's like being transported for the night to a far off vacation spot. The decor and service all add to the...More

Go for the food! Love the steak, appetizers, flaming cheese and great hummus dips. All done the authentic Greek way. The restaurant has a nice bar where you can sit and enjoy a few appetizers before dinner. I have eaten here a number of times...More
