- Stick with the sushiFoodSnotDined on 9/20/2014My husband loves sushi and I don't, but we gave it a try because the menu had a lot of variety. We had early reservations and as we were being seated we walked through the staff all sitting around eating edamame (very unprofessional). The cloth chairs were filthy and the window sills had dust and grime on them. I ordered soup and my husband ordered sushi for our appetizers. The soup was nice but way too large and the sushi was excellent. We both ordered an entrée with steak, requested medium. They both came well done. My husband's was very fatty and his daikon radish was so raw he could not bite into it. The waitress seemed annoyed to have to serve us throughout the whole dinner. This place is fine as long as you only go for sushi.Special Features:
- Great food and serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 9/19/2014We had excellent service here and lived the food. We're vegetarian and odered cucumber and avocado rolls, veggie spring rolls and the Pad Thai without the egg . All were delicious!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Food and Sushi consistently goodOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 9/19/2014Can get crowded with large parties on a weekend night so the kitchen can get quite busy. But worth the wait. I find the good and Sushi consistently yummy!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Local fancy AsianprovidencefoodieDined on 9/12/2014Jacky's puts Pf Changs to shame, though I like Changs as well (for a chain restaurant). I enjoy Jacky's every time I go.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice DinnerMaxdadmarkDined on 8/29/2014I had nime chow and the crab & salmon sashimi. Excellent choices, very fresh. Service was cheerful, but moderately slow. Cocktails did not come until the waiter was reminded, and just before the appetizers arrived. Also not made to my companion's specifications. Actually, the bartender seemed tired and not friendly. Beautiful atmosphere, very elegant and cosmopolitan. This was my first visit after 8 PM, and I was very disappointed to see several children there, which kind of spoiled the mood. Still, highly recommended.Special Features:
- perfect meal with waterfireEatsWithFriendsVIPDined on 8/23/2014We were visiting from out of town to see waterfire, what a great find. They have windows overlooking the river and basin. We could be outside and experience the festival and they texted us exactly when the take was ready. Service was a tad slow but understandable on such a busy night, and frankly we did not mind given they accommodated our window request. I'm normally skeptical of places that offer up multiple cuisines under one roof, but it worked here. The sushi was fresh and well crafted, the Chinese food was excellent also. I didn't attempt dessert but my daughter said the banana tempura chocolate thing hit the spot.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- glitzy decorspanglesDined on 8/23/2014This restaurant is reasonable but is rather over the top in its glitzy decor. No complaints about anything but probably not somewhere we would return to. The menu is also quite pricy.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Jackie's WaterfrontCarmenDined on 8/23/2014I had made my reservation for 8 at 4:30pm 2 months ahead of time because it was a Waterfire night. I called 4 times to confirm the reservation and to request to sit near a window. I was told we couldn't eat outside because they didn't allow parties larger than 6 outside. We were the first people in the restaurant and were told there were no window seats available! There was nobody else in the restaurant! I reminded them I had made the reservation 2 months ago and they asked us if we wanted to sit outside after I had been told several times we couldn't. They wanted to put us in a small room in the back of the restaurant with no windows. Finally, they sat us at a window. When we left, the hostess was rude and wouldn't even acknowledge us.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- rpleoneDined on 8/15/2014We always have a good experience. Food and menu are excellent. Their wait staff leaves a little to be desired, not top notch. Red wines by the glass that are offered are terrible.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- FabulousOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/11/2014My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time. The food was great, the service was wonderful. The only thing that would deter me from going back is the price of each item. The cost is almost double what you would pay even on the east side.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- GregDined on 8/11/2014I held a business/ lunch meeting and the atmosphere was favorable for such a meeting. The food was wonderful and decor is beautiful! I would go back for business or personal dining experience.Special Features:
- Delicious, but disappointingitterfamVIPDined on 8/9/2014This was our second time here. As always, great food and service. However, my Open Table request for a window table was not fulfilled. It was Water Fire night, but I requested it so far ahead. If you are going to ask for requests on the site, then you should do your best to fulfill them. To top it off, after our wonderful meal, we handed in a discount card from The Marriott, which was supposed to be redeemed for one appetizer or glass of wine per entree (up to a $12 value). We had four meals, and they only took off one appetizer. After I told her we ate here before and got four, showed her the wording and told her we got 2 appetizers at Zooma, they took off one more --still not all four (2 appetizers and 2 wines). Disappointed.Special Features:
- FABULOUS!!!lovedgalaxiewaterplaceDined on 8/9/2014I can't tell you the last time I ate in the city of Providence...I try to avoid the city at all costs..it was so easy to get there...but at Jackie's everything was perfect..immediate easy valet parking...the staff, the service, the food, the atmosphere, food presentation, our table (#38 to be exact) ....after our dinner we were able to go outside and have a spectacular view of the waterfires.......we will be visiting again.....oh forgot to mention using open table for our reservations was convenient also.........thank youSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- fantastic experiencekbennett219Dined on 8/9/2014This was my second visit to Jackys. We were celebrating my father's 50th birthday. Jacky's truly made it special. They seated us by a window overlooking the river, and were perfectly attentive. The food was incredible, beautiful presentation. What a great day!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Mixedht68Dined on 8/9/2014Been here before, really liked ambience, food, service. This time, service was very slow & we were only one of 3 tables there, with only 4-5 people at bar. Service would have been rated lower except they were very accomodating when we wanted to switch tables twice because of the sun - although they shouldn't have seated us in way of the sun the first place. The French crunch roll was outstanding.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Really off, off, off night - why??AiredaleVIPDined on 8/7/2014I have always enjoyed Jacky's (have been to this location multiple times and regularly get Sushi from their location on Metacom Ave.), but they were WAY OFF on the Thursday night we dined there. They were "down a bartender" which delayed our drinks 10+ minutes. Then the blender was broken, so some drinks couldn't be served. Then they were out of mint, so other drinks could not be served. Then drinks finally appeared and one of them had an insect in it. At this point we waited through the rest of dinner for the next thing to go wrong. Really spoiled it. And I think there was some loose tile outside bathroom, which wobbled, and you felt like the place was slowly being neglected. Would not recommend if we only had this outing to go by.
- Love the sushiGeiorgieDDined on 7/31/2014we had a great waitress and the sushi and sashemi were top notch! I ask for a quiet area for conversation and we were placed in a area away from the crowded a parts of the restaurant with a nice view of the river.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Service IssuessecondtryDined on 7/28/2014My only objection to our evening was that my appetizer was forgotten, so it arrived late to the table. While everyone was still eating appetizer the main courses were brought to the table and sat for a significant period of time.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food!tobyDined on 7/26/2014My husband does not like Japanese or Chinese food and there were more than enough choices for him to choose from! Service on the drinks a little slow.....very clean....enjoyed it all....prices....$$$...especially the drinks!Special Features:
- enjoyed food and ambiencelisawezzDined on 7/26/2014We enjoyed the food, especially liked the flat iron steak with asparagus and the oriental fried rice with chicken, beef and shrimp. The decor of the restaurant is very nice. Service was friendly and relatively quick.Special Features:
- Awesome!!MeliDined on 7/22/2014My date and I were looking for a restaurant with an intimate setting, good Sushi, good drinks, outside seating and nice decor. Jacky's Waterplace has all that and much more! Our waiter was super friendly and funny. I definitely recommend this restaurant. It is perfectly situated during Waterfire evenings as well.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- pvd experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/18/2014Delicious cuisine! This was our first experience and it was exceptionally worthwhile. Excellent staff, food, scenery and overall experience!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 7/17/2014Very accommodating staff members. Attentive service. Went for the Sashimi and sushi exclusively. The menu caters to Americans and offers many Asian options, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese and Japanese. It is a challenge to offer that many options and execute each well. Nice but not for the connoisseur of Sushi.
- Excellent place to dineLove2DineDined on 7/15/2014Never disappointed with Jacky's Waterplace. Always want to go back there all the time. Recommend people to try this amazing restaurant. Keep up the good work guys. The people work there are very friendly.Special Features:
- Great food and atmosphere!Megaroo2388Dined on 7/12/2014Had dinner with three friends before watching the basin lighting at WaterFire. The food was delicious (had the Pad Thai and a Tuna/Avocado roll). The martinis were generous (Perfect Passion and Pomegranate). The atmosphere is the ideal combination of energetic, yet serene. It really is the best place to dine before WaterFire. However, my friends and I spent over $200 and felt very rushed by the wait staff, which kind of isn't cool when you're spending that kind of $$ and clearly going to tip well. We were only there for two hours and had appetizers, two drinks each, and full entrees. Settle down, dude. Other than that, nice experience!Special Features:
- Great menu selectionsWorldgrazerVIPDined on 7/9/2014Something for everybody. Unfortunately, the last time I was there, the waiter seemed to go missing and we had to walk to the front to ask for our check.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Review of Jacky'sWhoops4Dined on 6/28/2014We all had sushi except for one. He ordered lobster surf and turf and unfortunately his meal arrived very late while the rest of us were already almost finished. The manager became aware and offered a round of drinks. Overall though sushi was great.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- city nightupscalefoodieDined on 6/28/2014went to Jacky's on waterfire night, great look at the city and the lighting along the river. Service a little slow, but they were very busy. Great drinks. We asked hostess for a seat at the window and she said she would try her best, she did come through with that, very nice. Food was good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Asian food with a viewFiddleDeeDeeVIPDined on 6/27/2014We had a nice dinner overlooking the Riverwalk before a free concert. The waiter was very accomodating for our food needs (vegetarian and gluten and dairy free). The pad thai was fresh, the summer rolls were wrapped right, and the sushi roll was great!Special Features:
- foodieinpafoodieinpaVIPDined on 6/27/2014From the valet parking greeting on thru the dinner service, this place is a winner. We had the won-ton soup and the shrimp lemongrass soup - both delicious. We had the Peking duck which had a crispy crust, tender meat, and minimum fat - another winner. We tried the coconut shrimp which was greaseless, crispy, and not too sweet served with a mango sauce that hit the right degrees of hotness and again, not sweet. We finished with green tea and ginger ice cream, both refreshing. Our server was well informed on all the menu choices and the preparation, very attentive without being intrusive. The location is easy to get to and has great views of the river - the décor is lovely. Definitely a "come-back" place.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIPDined on 6/15/2014A very nice afternoon lunch. Service was outstanding, but not over the top. Both the sushi and the cooked entrees were very nicely done.Special Features:

- Fun & Tasty Get-Together SpotSteveBDined on 6/7/2014Six of us met on Saturday, where we enjoyed great appetizers at the bar, watched the Belmont Stakes and had great sushi, sashimi, cooked beef & cooked chicken. In all, there was something for everyone!!! The service was great as was the atmosphere. We've been here before & will continue to return!!!!!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great sushi!RichardDined on 6/2/2014Another terrific dinner at Jacky's. A nice touch occurred when the wait staff came to the table to sing happy birthday to my daughter, with a slice of delicious cheesecake. Our 3rd time there, and our third excellent experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Beautiful RestaurantpastaloverVIPDined on 6/1/2014This was our first time at Jacky's and the restaurant is absolutely beautiful. The food was very good as well as the service. I noticed that most negative reviews had to do with the service but we did not experience any problems. It was a little expensive compared to most Asian restaurants but the view is worth it. You must try it at least once.Special Features:
