Diner Reviews
  • "My 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."

  • "My 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!"

  • "We 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."

  • "My 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."

  • "Had 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!"

  • "We 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."

  • "went 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."

  • "We 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!"

  • "From 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."

  • "Six 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!!!!!!!"

  • "Another 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."

  • "This 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."

  • "Extremely disappointing. Kept a guest without a chair for 15 minutes. Food came to the table completely cold. Manager was relatively unresponsive. For the multiple restaurant errors in a party of 10 the manager took off two vegetables. Never again. No wonder it was the only restaurant which had availability on open table after most had been booked for months due to college graduations."

  • "Again I took guests to dinner and I was very impressed as were they. It was a Waterfire Night. It was the perfect spot to watch Waterfires. The restaurant was very busy but it did not negatively effect the service. The wait staff was great and attentive. We received very good suggestions from our waitress and help to suggest wine and drinks to complement our meal. I would highly recommend checking this place out. Wonderful evening. "

  • "I love going to Jacky's Waterplace because I feel like a different person when I go there. The staff are friendly and helpful, the linens are fantastic and the ambiance is just so rich and distinct. It just feels like a different caliber of restaurant. The food is always fantastic, fresh and prepared the way you ask. There was a slip up this visit though, instead of just Shrimp I got a variety of seafood in my Singapore Noodle. (which I was VERY okay with!) The sushi was fresh and delicious as always. The prices are reasonable for what you receive. All in all I've always had a good experience at this location. The other Jacky's locations pale in comparison."

  • "We absolutely LOVE Jacky's Waterplace and make a point to go 1-2 (if not more) times a month, we love arriving early to have pre-dinner cocktails with our favorite bar staff so friendly and attentive then off to dinner with our favorite waiter Kenny, always smiling and always going above and beyond. Good company, great staff and awesome food and the best MAI TAI's in the state!!!"

  • "Went with out of town guests, horror show. We were a party of 4 and my three out of town guests wanted to only go to this restaurant. We were early for our reservation and seated in a booth in front of the servers area. The waitress was prompt and we ordered three appetizers, All was fine until the waitress told us our main course was coming out and she promptly took my friends appetizer plate away while there was still appetizers unfinished on the table. The waitress spilt oil on the table and did not cover it up with a napkin and we sat and watched this oil stain turn into a BP oil slick! She never refreshed our water nor asked if we wanted anymore drinks, then she took my friends plate away while I was still eating. Worst service !!"

  • "This was my first time at Jacky's. I did not have any issues. The valet, host and waiter were all friendly. The sushi was a little pricey, but I found it to be very good. It appears that most of the seating is near a window, which allows for great views. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "WE were sat at a lovely table at the far end of the dining room with a beautiful view of the Providence skyline in a beautifully scenic dinning room and served equally beautifully prepared 3 course dinner which included soup, sushi. entree and dessert with a bottle of wine. It is a shame that we had not one but two tables next to us that needed to continually play videos on their phones loud enough for all of us to hear. Such thought and work have gone into the dining experience at Jackie's Waterplace Restaurant and it can be cancelled out by the public rudeness of who you might SIT next to. Come on management don't be afraid of saying something and DEMAND the respect that your restaurant deserves ! "

  • "I have lived in the Providence area for many years and enjoy the fabulous restaurants in the city. I have wanted to try Jacky's but never got around to going. I had some friends coming in from Massachusetts and thought we could meet there. I was concerned because I had not tried it first, but to my surprise it was perfect. We were there at lunch. The service and the ambience was great. The luncheon specials were varied and reasonably priced. We had drinks that were excellently made. We enjoyed our lunch so much we were the only ones there after the lunch crowd left. I have been recommending this restaurant to all my friends. My Massachusetts guests suggested we meet there again for our next meeting. "

  • "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"

  • "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 "
