  • "If you like sushi & Asian cuisine then this place is a nice upscale place to consider. Valet parking starts the evening off to a good start. Intimate and fun environment good for romantic evenings and a night out with friends "

  • "Hot appetizers are to be hot not cold. Hot duck app was cold sent it back,was still cold. Sent it back again, was taken off bill as it should. Ordered gen. tso's chicken, wanted it spicy, was not even a little spicy. Server was excellent, bad result for food was not his fault. It was my first experience there and I'm not sure i would go back because the kitchen could not follow a servers direction. People pass on their experience and my husband brags about how wonderful this place is. I on the other hand do not agree. Sorry"

  • "Mine was a party of 2 and we were seated at a booth that seats 6. I might understand if we didn't walk by no less than six (6!!!!!) tables for 2 that were available. Also, the waiter was not very good - among the options for the pad thai were shrimp, beef, chix, seafood etc... I asked what the seafood consisted of and the answer I got was 'shrimp'. I explained that I saw shrimp was one of the choices, but another was seafood and inquired if it was a mix. Answer - no necks. WTF!!! He meant no little necks or any other clams. When I enunciated the word 'mix' again so we would be clear about what I was asking his answer was 'yes - it's all mixed together'. And no, there wasn't too much noise or any other reason to misunderstand me!!!!"

  • "Great sushi and great views! I had never even heard of this place, but it is pretty amazing. Awesome fish tank in the lobby and great panoramic views of the river area. Sushi was very good.. So was the crab rangoon. Very small beer list, but I guess I'm im the minority for ordering a beer at a sushi place."

  • "Beautiful room overlooking the river. It must be spectacular during Waterfire nights. We chose our meal from the Chinese part of the menu. Everything was well prepared, with the exception of the Peking duck which was dried out, as if it had been prepared a few days before. The steak in black pepper sauce and the vegetables were tasty and cooked the way we asked. It was a lovely experience if you are looking for familiar flavors and well done, predictable food."

  • "My son wanted Jacky's to celebrate his 18th birthday. We are all huge sushi lovers and feel Jacky's has the best in Providence. I had the spicy yellowtail and it was fabulous. Their presentation is like art. My husband's meal looked like it could have been a floral arrangement-just exquisite. When asked if we would like more at the end of the meal, we shared that we were on our way home to celebrate with desert. Five minutes later, my son is surrounded with the serenading wait staff and a beautiful plate of gelato. What a nice surprise for all of us. We dine at Jacky's 5-6 times a year and it is always a great experience."

  • "The sushi/sashimi were outstanding, presentation was artful, and the service was friendly and very attentive. We're definitely going back. Also saw a gorgeous private dining room.

  • "We had a rgeat experience at Jacky's and we'll definitely go back. It was a bit difficult to find and our GPS had us circling downtown Providence but once we arrive we had agreat time. The service was great, food was very good and the atmosphere very energetic. We had sushi, specialty rolls, noodles, pad thai and a few drinks. Only the mai tai failed to impress. We will certainly be back."

  • "Jacky's Waterplace has a very high end ambience with great water views. The service was excellent. However, the food is similar to every other Chinese restaurant that offers sushi options. The peking duck was delicious but everything else wasn't too special."

  • "Food was OUTSTANDING. My GF & I ordered the Shrimp Vietnamese Spring Rolls, Miso soup (I mean who doesn't love Miso Soup??) and then we both ordered the Spicy Maki Roll Combination plate. Everything was AMAZING, I just didn't anticipate how much you got. I still had some sushi to take home! The only 2 things I was bummed about was how our waiter rushed our courses & our drinks. We still had at least half of each course as the next one came out, not a big deal but still...For my drink I ordered the Pomegranate Martini, it tasted like syrup...it was just not good. My GF ordered the Lychee Martini (shes had it before) it didn't come with the Lychee Garnish and was kind of bland (this time she said). I would go back tho, prob just an off day."

  • "The food is amazing, the view is exquisite and the waitress Nicole is the best. She went above and beyond and heard my boyfriend talking about my birthday being that day and she went the extra step and brought me out a piece of cheesecake with a candle in it. She was there to take pictures of the 2 of us also and she made my birthday that much more special."

  • "We always enjoy the ambiance and the food at Jacky's…..this time we found a special bottle of wine on the menu from the Campania region of Italy which was great and reminded us of our recent trip. The view of the city adds an additional dimension of enjoyment and our waitress and the hostess (?owner) were very attentive."

  • "I made my opentable reservation on xmas eve. All indications was that the reservation posted without a problem. We arrived about 20 minutes early and checked-in with the hostess. They had our reservation. She was very pleasant and said that we were still on-time for our reservation as made. So we went to the bar, which on NYE had a nice crowd but the bartender was very attentive to our arrival and quickly took our drink order. Within a few minutes the hostess came up to us at the bar and told us our table was ready. Earlier than expected. Nice ! Our server came over, introduced herself, took our order and the food came out quickly, as ordered and was OUTSTANDING ! You were the start of a very nice NYE night out in Providence ! Well Done !"

  • "Visited here on New Year's Eve. The menu has quite a lot of choices although the prices are pretty high across the board. Overall the food was very good, but some items were just average. For example, the calamari appetizer was outstanding but the nime chow appetizer was just okay. The décor and location are the highlight of spot."

  • "The restaurant, which is normally good, was NOT prepared to do business on Christmas! Got there at 7PM...took half hour to be seated, (had reservations for 7) then 20 minutes to get someone's attention for water...the rest was downhill from there ...almost three hours later, left...didn't bother with dessert. There were numerous errors on the check......overcharged,........,big time! We complained, they adjusted check and gave 15% discount...so what?? We'll never get the time back that was wasted, and how sad to have this as a remembrance for Christmas 2013 with family! We will not be going back any time soon...Hire more help!"
