Jimmy's is a great place to stop in fir dinner if you are in the neighborhood. Very casual and relaxed atmosphere with great service. All of the staff there has always been very nice and the food is really high quality and creative.

I entered Jimmy’s No. 43 on Dec. 5th with a friend and was immediately excited about the cozy vibe, reminiscent of a place in VT or CO. We asked for a table for two, but were told there were none available so we were escorted to the bar. The bartender was preoccupied with her friends and co-workers that were sitting at the bar. In any case, when we were finally so lucky as to order, we ordered the Charcuterie Plate to start (Salami, Pickles, Olives, Sausages), Hanger Steak w/fingerling potatoes, bitter greens, whole grain mustard-double bock sauce and Cast Iron Skillet Seared Sea Scallops w/sweet potato, bean sprouts, shitake mushrooms and cashew nuts. When the CP arrived, it didn’t have olives on it, but did have an olive pit cup! We asked the bartender about it and she said to the server "Oh we are out of olives, right?" Suggesting that this might be the case, without being inconvenienced to confirm if this was in fact true. The other waitress did not catch on quickly enough, so the bartender followed up with "Do you want to go check" which was followed by the response "No." This whole time both the bartender and server were talking to each other as if we weren’t there- I don’t even need to say this, but how rude! Needless to say she came back with olives. In general, the CP was good, but the salami and slice of ham (?) seemed straight from a package of deli meat from the supermarket. Now for the entrees, the scallops arrived early, even before we could complete our appetizer, yet my steak moseyed its way to the bar about ten minutes later. I understand laid back and casual dining, but when serving entrees to a party of two, they should probably come together! My steak was perfectly cooked, and although the dish was overly salty, I enjoyed it. The scallop description made it seem like the dish was going to be very hearty, which would fit with the concept of Jimmy’s, but in fact it was a very delicate dish and the scallops barely came with anything. The three scallops came on a spoon full of off white puree (with a couple of lumps), but in general it was impossible to detect the sweet potato, bean sprouts, shitake mushrooms and cashew nuts. The dish was average, overly salty and mismatched conceptually. Needless to say we did not go for dessert because we were sick of feeling like we were interrupting the bartenders evening out. Unless you like paying for rude service and mediocre food, I suggest that you do not go to Jimmy’s!

We hadn't been to Jimmy's No. 43 in several months, and returned last night to find that the food has come into its own at this East Village gem of a restaurant. We loved everything we tasted, from the potted shrimp to the skirt steak. While Jimmy's made its name as a brew pub, don't miss the relatively new wine list with some delicious offerings like a 2005 Albarino. As the place was packed on a Friday night, we recommend going early if possible.

Went here about a month ago and the food was great. Went here a few nights ago with my boyfriend and the food was not good. Service was very friendly and a good vibe but food was dissapointing.

jimmy's is a great new east village tavern/restaurant. great beers on draft, wine list coming soon. the menu sources local and organic ingredients, many from the union square farmer's market. it has an old new york feeling, a rathskeller basement space. hip bohemian vibe. great for a date , also several rooms great for large parties
