Diner Reviews
  • "This location just north of downtown in a historic neighborhood is highly desire able. The atmosphere, quality of food and service make an addition to our regular unique restaurant your in Jackson. Job well done"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Our service was good when we arrived, but as the restaurant filled up, the service suffered. Our food was very good, but the end of the meal was disappointing. We ordered dessert and never received. I ordered an expresso with baileys and the coffee was cold. I asked for a refill of coffee just to finish my baileys and that was perfect. No apologies for the dessert not being served and then our ticket did not even include our after dinner drinks. We mentioned it to the waiter and it was then added. Waiter could have been more knowledgeable about the menu. This is too nice of a location not to perfect the service segment of the dining experience. We will go back one more time and if we have the same experience, we won't go back."

  • "My First Monday lunch group loved Sophia's and we enjoyed our lunch at 1908. The service and the food were wonderful. We will be back!"

  • "Recently had a birthday brunch at 1908 Provisions for my mother. All guests were pleased with their meals, especially desserts. The corn casserole, fresh fruit, meat loaf, and gumbo were also hits. We had been concerned about the transition from Sophia's, which we had enjoyed on many occasions. Food and service were just as good, if not better."

  • "Our 2nd time to go to 1908; were excited b/c 1st visit was incredible! 5 stars across! this time husband got dozen oysters, which he LOVED; duck confit, (he gave 5 stars) and the creme brulee (5 stars from BOTH of us). i got (AGAIN) arugula salad, which was good, but not quite as good as 1st time--a little mashed together & slightly overdressed, but would STILL give it 3 1/2 stars. Was feeling less than adventurous & ordered vegetarian dish. 1st problem for me was that i am NOT a vegetarian, but a total carnivore, rarer the better. 2nd problem was there are not ANY "spring vegetables" out yet, so was given TWO quinoa cakes, great wilted spinach&great heirloom cherry tomatoes. unless you cannot tolerate meat, bland choice."

  • "Loved the creative mixture of flavors in the dishes from Entrees to appetizers down to the butter served with the bread."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "We walked out because no one helped us and the restaurant had changed so much--it was awful. Rap/techno type music and ultra mod decor in what was once a classy place. Very sad they ruined a good thing."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Each of us had the Red Fish, which was prepared to perfection. The salads were fresh. For desserts, we had the house made sorbet trio and the apple fritters, both of which were also outstanding. The restaurant has undergone renovation and redesign into a contemporary design that is pleasing and comfortable. I highly recommend 1908 Provisions for casual dining, groups and special occasions."

It was a great choice, and we'll be back to this beautiful place again as well as sing its praises to friends. One of my favorite things was being able to make reservations online and get an immediate confirmation. Too cool!"

  • "The food is very good, the service is great. But it is difficult to find the restaurant. The is no prominent sign on the main road. This needs to be addressed. Would dine again. Reservation through OpenTable worked great."

  • "A small group of us recently gathered at 1908 Provisions for a double birthday party. About ten of us get together to celebrate birthdays at a different restaurant each time. This was the best place we have been in a while. The food was second to none, the service and atmosphere were outstanding as well. Looking forward to returning soon...as a matter of fact, I'll be there with a different group for brunch in less than two weeks."

  • "It was way too cold in the restaurant! If you go, do not sit under the vents! Otherwise your food will get cold before you finish eating...ice cold! The food was delicious but I'm not sure if I will go back because of the temp of the restaurant."

  • "I will return to 1908 Provision. The food was excellent and exceeded my expectation. The service was off. It was Valentines evening and the restaurant is fairly new. I plan to return in a month or so and get a feel for how things really are."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had a wonderful meal. The building is beautiful and the service was good. We had a dozen oysters to start. Then we had the tuna and the venison, which was the special of the evening. Both were excellent. The only drawback to our visit was that the room was very small and it seemed that the waiters had to squeeze between the tables. I had to wait for a waitress to move before I could pull out my chair. But that was the ONLY drawback. We had a wonderful time!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "We prefer the décor of the dining room before renovations, and would preferred the bar not to be located in the dining area. .Miss the white table clothes. However, the food and presentation is just as delightful and enjoyable as past. And the new waiting staff were excellent. We wish much success and will consider the kitchen to be the best in the Jackson area. See you soon"

  • "Sophia's threw a wonderful New Year's Eve dinner - excellent service and drinks in the library before dinner really set the tone. Sophia's does not disappoint. They are excellent on every occasion. Best brunch in town, beautiful al fresco dining on their many patios or under the giant Magnolia tree - they are at their best for large groups or special occasions."

  • "We like to eat at Sophia's before mid-night mass at st andrew's episcopal church. Your staff was very professional."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "As we were early for our reservation we had a drink in the Library Bar. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere is unique and relaxing. The atmosphere of the restaurant is in keeping with the bed and breakfast theme. While they did not have music this night they do have a piano with music selective evenings. The menu is limited but does have a variety. I had the filet and it was cooked perfectly and the sides quite tasty. My husband had redfish and while good he said it was just a touch "fishy". My son had the seafood special which was scallops. While they were very good, the portion was 3 scallops which was a bit stingy for the price. As this was Christmas Eve the restaurant was full but the service was still very good."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "The occasion was my birthday. I particularly enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and the food was superb. If you are looking for an intimate place to take someone special in your life Sophia's will not disappoint! There menu has variety and their wIt staff is awesome. They have the best bread pudding in Jackson."

  • "My wife and I have traditionally dined at Sophia's for anniversaries. So it's a perfect special occasion venue especially during the holiday season. We always appreciate the ambience, fine food and excellent service from Cathy and the attention to detail given the entire beautiful inn by Peter Sharp and his staff. The Fairview Inn is a very special place for Jacksonians and is highly recommended for locals and travelers alike. Jean/Lamar Nesbit, Jackson, MS"
