  • "The food was simply outstanding! Don't believe it can be beat!"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "I organized a business lunch here. The staff was friendly and solicitous, not underfoot. I made a reservation to avoid the lunch rush on a Monday, but it wasn't necessary at all - it wasn't very busy. I had the sashimi tuna salad and it was quite tasty and plenty for lunch. There weren't too many people there, so the noise level was great for conversation. "

  • "The service is wonderful and the food and drink delightful. The outdoor patio with fireplace is charming. Really a great place for a meal on a summer night or a cold winter night or afternoon."

  • "Overall my first experience was a good one at Jackson's. I thought the best part was the food. The ambiance was comforatable, almost like a ski chalet. Our food server was well-trained and gave us all the input we asked and time to decide. Thanks!"

  • "For the first time, the patio area was very noisy which made the dining experience less enjoyable than our usual visits to Jackson's."

  • "This was the first time I dined at Jackson's. There were three distinct seating options: outside on the covered patio, inside by the bar and in the more formal side room. We picked the last choice as it was quieter and were happy. We had decided to chose this restaurant as the food was interesting and were pleased with everything we tried. The beet and goat salad was well dressed with balanced flavors, and was a large portion. The heirloom tomato and berretta salad was excellent with the treatment of the cheese making this a special dish. The lamb sausage flat bread was nicely cooked and very large (two people could have had just that for lunch). The flank steak risotto and pork belly dishes were also nice, and were smaller plates."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Three friends went to Jackson's to celebrate a friend's birthday. The service was excellent. I had a steak and it was excellent, very tender and juicy. The upside down berry pie is excellent. My only negative is the noise level of the restaurant. Background noises makes it difficult for me to hear and this restaurant has too much background noise in my opinion."

  • "The menu seemed fit for foodies but the food was not well executed. I ordered the smaller miso cod which came on a kid's plate but was still $16. It came with two kid-sized pieces of fish--they were however generous with the white rice and cucumber salad. My date ordered the braised short-ribs which were not what he expected. The bones were not attached and the meat did not have that signature silky/braised texture. It was dry rounds of meat surrounded by a lot of root veggies. We also ordered the roasted cauliflower which came in a pool of it's own water and had lost the roasted texture. The actual sauce was completely drowned out and bland and the pine nuts were left behind in the sauce so we asked for bread but it just seemed botched."

  • "1st time at the recently opened Jackson's probably not the best choice ambiance-wise for our X-mas eve dinner. That said and not being a foodie we found the service to be very good, attentive but not intrusive, our steaks were done just as asked for and the sides prepared very well. The feel is very casual, especially in the 'outside' area, but we wonder why it is so walled-in. There is nothing to absorb sound so it just seems loud in normal dining conditions. Considering the total experience the cost of the entrees were felt to be pricey and might be more justified in a setting like Man. Bch. near the pier or Hermosa's Pier Ave promenade. Jackson's in a very competitive market area, I wish them well and will recommend them to others."

  • "Consistently good food with excellent portions, nice variety of cocktail and wine menu, good service, cozy outdoor patio with fireplace. It was great place for date night with hubby but also super for date with my daughter who has a mature palate. Love the fact that it's a local place."

  • "After a day at the Getty on the hill and having to deal with the 405 construction traffic, we wanted to be out of LA for dinner but closer to our home in Orange County. El Segundo area was a good landing spot for a nice dinner. Jackson's lived up to their stars others have given. We all thought the food was excellent. The Beet salad which was praised as"the best one she ever had" another had the roasted chicken which looked as beautiful as it tasted I heard, the roasted vegetables were delicious but he did mention too many tomatoes - but then again he is not a big fan of those anyhow. I really liked the Tagliatelle pasta with ricotta, peas and pancetta with fried egg which was even more interesting than the Carbonara I make at home."

  • "Cozy local restaurant with great food! Have tried the Salmon Sandwich, Short Rib Sandwich, Grilled Corn, Mac and Cheese and the bread and butter is delish!"

  • "Booked this place as my backup plan for dinner for valentines day. Did not even realize how close it was to my house! Super cool place that was very busy, although that may be attributed to valentines day. We were seated right away thanks to that reservation and had a wonderful waitress. Kristen was very attentive all night even when I couldn't decide what to order! The food took a bit to come out..again they were very busy but Kristen kept checking in and kept us posted. That was nice. Food came out and was very good. I ordered the pepperoni flatbread pizza and my boyfriend ordered the burger. They were both very good. Loved the dipping sauces for his fries!"

  • "Chose Jackson's for Valentines Day. We were seated in the bar area which turned out to be a great place to sit. The service was friendly and fast. They have a very good wine list. We started with the Filet Mignon and Risotto appetizer which was excellent. Because the tables are close we got to see what the people around us ordered which in turn sparked nice conversations. I ordered the braised beef ribs with parsnip mashed potatoes and root vegetables and my wife ordered the glazed salmon over couscous. The chef came out to let me know that they had run out of the root vegetables and offered me the opportunity to substitute whatever I wanted. I chose the roasted corn off the cob which was excellent. We will return to try other dishes."

  • "Love the Miso Black Cod - Order the entree size because entree size really only contains about 6 or 7 pieces of fish and you'll want ever bite. (Pricey, but worth it). All the food is great, and the Mac n' Cheese is really super as an appetizer to share. Reservations were easy also."

  • "Had asked for a specific location in restaurant, hostess sat us near busy door. She said she had not read the comments in my reservation. They were out of 2 menue items including the special. Waiter was forgetful and slow to accommodate, but had a great smile and attitude. We have been here a couple of times and really enjoyed the meal, but this last was a let down."

  • "The entry door was difficult to find because it all blends in, but the interior decor is refreshing. It's western meets contemporary. I was their for lunch, but looks like a fun place to hang out for a happy hour or with a large group of people. The food isn't great, but it's not bad. It's a little on the pricier side, but overall, it was a good experience, with the exception of being overcharged by an extra meal, which I didn't catch on time, so, just double check your bill."

  • "Had dinner there New Years Eve, Great food and a wonderful night. Service was excellent and the staff very friendly. I have often seen this restaurant and wondered what it was like, I wish I had gone there sooner. It will defiantly be on my "I have to go back there " list."

  • "We first went to this restaurant shortly after it first opened and were underwhelmed. Particularly when compared to MB Post and Abigailes. We recently returned and they seem to be running in full stride. The food and the cocktails were very good. We sat in the bar to watch the game and Kamron the bartender took very good care of us. I'm glad they turned the corner and look forward to going back."

  • "I love the ambiance of this restaurant. It is like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I have my favorites, but want to try everything on the menu. The Black Cod was amazing the Asparagus salad was excellent. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

  • "First time eating here, will be back. Pork belly and Mac n Cheese for apps. Miso cod and short rib for dinner. DOC for cocktail (kinda like an old-fashioned). The highlights for me were the polenta and sauce under the pork belly, the miso cod, and the cocktail. The pork belly itself was a little too soft and cut too big, prefer it in smaller chunks so that it's more crispy and less soft fat texture. The miso cod was fantastic and the cucumber salad side was a great compliment to the fish. The husband loved the short rib. Perfect cocktail."

  • "This was our first time to the El Segundo incarnation of Jackson's (formerly in Hermosa Beach) and we were not disappointed. The food was incredible. The space is small and the ambience very simple but the chairs were extremely comfortable...made me want to stay and try more and more food! Good service, nice wine choices and cocktails. But what really blew us away was the food. Everything we ordered from salads to pasta to short ribs was fantastic. Foodie Food. And large portions...we're big eaters and even we couldn't finish everything!"

  • "Wonderful restaurant, we've been a number of times and will continue to come back, because we are never disappointed! Don't let the location next to the movie theater dissuade you - this is a very quality restaurant."
