We came here for dinner to celebrate a friend's birthday. The decor is tasteful and the dining area is spacious enough that you do not feel cramped even when all the tables are occupied. There is a separate dining area in the back of the restaurant that can accommodate a large private party. The food, although a bit expensive, was... More

While our experience was mixed. Very busy evening, so we had to wait a bit to be seated. What was strange that this was the case while we saw many empty tables that weren't filled the rest of the evening. Interesting menu, still nothing that intrigued us too much. Ended up as a nice enough, average experience.

From the moment our host noted our arrival, we realized our dinning experience was in full motion. While we waited for our table, we decided to order a round from the bar... Unrivaled attention to detail and excellent choices of beverages. Fast forward, the dinner menu delivered more options then some of the Greek restaurants in Los Angeles. My favorite... More

Unusual and unexpected in Mammoth, Jimmy's Taverna delivers excellent food and a stylish atmosphere for dining and drinks. Went here for a dinner party with friends (around 20 couples) and was very impressed by the food, drinks, and service. I recommend the filet mignon oscar which was delicious. Friends had lamb chops which they really liked as well. My five... More

We wandered in a year ago while on vacation and haven't been able to stop thinking about the incredible cuisine ever since. The main reason for this is that we knew we'd be back this Fall and our radar was set on returning for one of the best dining experiences we've had in Mammoth Lakes. To our delight, this time...

We have eaten at Jimmy's several times over the past few years, mostly during winter ski trips, and keep coming back. This week's dinner was excellent! We selected a delicious white burgundy by the glass, enjoyed some dips and a salad, and then had a wonderful wood fire grilled lupe di mare for our main course. Service was attentive and... More

Great restaurant with amazing food. Two of us had the "Branch" aka kabob and the other the risotto We sat at the bar with the locals. Always a good sign when the locals eat here too. Good selection of wines and cocktails. We didn't have reservations but I would recommend them as it's a popular place!

This restaurant was the best that we experienced on our holiday in the US (Las Vegas to San Fran). The food was out of this world and the environment & service was perfect.

We went for dinner after reading some positive reviews and it considerably exceeded our expectations - quite an upmarket mediterranean restaurant with excellent design and friendly staff, starters were superb but the kebabs .......... I consider myself an expert and this was some of the best flavoured and most tender meat Ive eaten anywhere. Complimented by an excellent wine list,... More
