    My party of 5 were all disappointed with Jimmy V's. My chicken was borderline undercooked. I was scared to eat it. My husband's steak was undercooked as well. The pizza is mediocre at best. We waited 45 minutes for our food and the bar/restaurant wasn't busy at all. The table next to us was 4 guys who were loud and obnoxious so that was annoying. I realize that's no fault of the restaurant, but it can get quite loud. Our server was friendly and attentive, but other than that I can't find a reason to return.

    I had good memories from this place from more than 8 years ago but I was very disappointed this time… food was cold and not well prepared. And not cheap. Service was horrible. Not professional at all.

    The Thanksgiving Day Brunch was cold and overpriced. The service and setting was great. The food just wasn't what I expected at all. The vegetables were cold and the rest of the food lukewarm.

    Celebrating 36th wedding anniversary Hostess ignored us as we approached her. Bad attitude to greet customers - train her or find replacement. Waitress was good, but was handling too many tables- management needs more waitresses. Drinks took a long time - only one bartender. Food was average. Got home and hours later got very sick. Will not be back

    Basically a bar food menu, busy and loud. I requested a great table for an important business meeting but we got sat at the door way in high traffic area with a roof leak. Needless to say Jimmy V’s is NOT recommended and they will not have me as a diner.

    Requested outside seating but, unfortunately, the plastic curtains were down so we did not get the outdoor weather in there. Guess because of the weather change.

    This was our first time here. After reading the reviews of others, I wasn't sure if I wanted to try it out, but I know some people just like to complain about every little thing, so I went ahead and made a reservation. First was parking, downtown Raleigh can be a pain when it comes to parking, but we got there a 5 and found a spot right out front YES!!!!! We went in side and were seated immediately. The place is listed as an Italian restaurant but has a sports bar vibe to it. Lot's of photos of Jimmy V around. Once seated, our waiter was quick with our water and took our drink order. This gave us time to look over the menu, its small, only 1 page, but has a variety of options with salads, sandwiches, pizzas, steak, chicken and pasta. We shared a Caesar salad, then my wife had the shrimp scampi and I had the chicken marsala. My wife said the shrimp scampi didn't have a lot of flavor, but was ok. The chicken marsala on the other hand and a ton of flavor. The garlic mashed potato's were very creamy. The marsala sauce was a little thin, more like a soup, but it still tasted good. And like normal, we were too full to have any dessert. If you looking for a casual place to eat, with good service, give Jimmy V's Osteria bar a try .

    Host had an attitude when we asked to move to another table and said he had to accommodate everyone but the restaurant hardly had anyone there. The waitress was able to get us moved. The Bartender made me the wrong drink. My steak was raw then when taken back it was over cooked and almost all my fries were gone when brought back. The waitress was the only good thing about this place. Probably won’t be going back.

    We made reservations here for my son’s college graduation celebration. We were seated promptly and our server was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and we loved the building and the atmosphere. It was a nice choice for an NCSU grad dinner with just the right amount of an upscale feel with a casual touch.

    I did not realize when I made the reservation that Jimmys Vs is just the hotel restaurant. Just so people know this is a very basic hotel continental breakfast. It was pretty pricey and a very simple buffet like you would expect at any hotel. Not great, not horrible but not great. Just ok.

    Service was not the best. Almost no one in the restaurant but we waited a while on our food. My husband and son’s hot sandwiches were served cold and fries were cold. I ordered the special a fried chicken salad which consisted of romaine lettuce, shredded Parmesan cheese and essentially a sliced chicken tender for $20.00!!! Definitely NOT worth it!!! My son chose the restaurant to celebrate a big accomplishment-BIG disappointment. ,

    During a convention break, a small group of us joined others looking for lunch outside of the convention center. I used open table and reserved a spot. We waited in line with others who did not have reservations. Those folks were told that the wait would be an hour to be seated. We felt lucky to be able to use the reservation. Eventually we received our water and some of our beverages. We gave our order to the server. That took quite some time to be served. At the one hour from seating mark, we enquired as to when we could expect our food as we had scheduled meetings. The orders were not even started at that time. We all left hungry but we enjoyed our water while waiting. I can’t judge the food as we did not have any.

    Table with 6 inch proximity was not bussed and remained that way for 15 minutes. My husband told the manager. He said they are really busy. But waitstaff passed it multiple times. Tomatoes on Margherita pizza still had grocery store stickers. Three slices. One of which ended up in husbands mouth. Manager offered nothing in return. Waitress was left to apologize. Meatballs were burned and dry.
