    If you want a very nice dinner with plenty of entrees to choose from, this is the place. I ordered the baked salmon, well done, substituting rice pilaf for mashed potatoes. They are happy to accommodate changes. It arrived cooked perfectly. I look forward to my next visit to try something else. I didn't have dessert so I can't comment, but the choices were tantalizing. I don't know our server's name, but he was efficient and cordial.

    This is a consistently good to outstanding restaurant that offers a nice variety of seafood, chicken, beef, and vegetarian dishes to accommodate different tastes. We enjoy going to Jason's with our teenage grandchildren, by ourselves, or with a group. The food presentation is good but not outstanding in the artistic sense. The wine selection by the glass is outstanding. The wait staff is knowledgeable, helpful, and pleasant. Of my recent meals, I found the Dijon lamb chops and cioppino to be as good as I have had anywhere.

    Lunch and a cocktail. Special lobster ravioli was delicious. Fresh crab in season was heaping on a bed of greens with hardboiled eggs, tomatoes and avocado. Parking is plentiful and an afternoon walk behind the restaurant is perfect.

    We had a good dinner here last week. Food was tasty though the Rattlesnake Pasta wasn't even remotely spicy. Good, just not spicy. The cioppino was perfect and the salads very good. We'll be back.

    I cannot believe it's taken me so many years to try Jason's out but my hubby and I finally did and we're pretty much blown away by the quality of the food. The Seanad was still sizzling as they served it. Crab cakes super flavorful and moist, the poke spicy and fresh. Great service. Try to overlook the business park and perk out at Mt Tam while dining.

    My spouse and I eat at Jason's about every other month, and after our latest dinner we decided that is not often enough. The mussels in curry sauce are delicious and filling, and the cajun ahi tuna that I had was just incredible. It comes with Jason's signature tempura green beans, which are also available as an appetizer under "healthy fries". Bottom line: I have never had a disappointing meal here.

    this is a fusion restaurant with a very nice menu. Prices were reasonable and on a Thursday the wine was a great value (50% off $40+ wines). I had the Fisherman's stew (v. good mussels and clams on a pasta); others had the shrimp scampi (v.good) and another had the Cajun pasta. Everyone enjoyed their food.

    Always hits it out of the park. I have numerous Marin County clients and prospects and I always recommend Jason's for the quality fresh seafood and wonderful fresh flavors he creates. This lunch was a business lunch with very special clients who also love Jason's. He gives me many reasons to keep going back - and I will.

    We like Jason's. It is one of those pleasant unpretentious places to go when the wife doesn't want to cook, or you want to have a casual dinner with good friends. The people and ambience warm and friendly, and it has an interesting variety of menu items. The food is very good and prices are reasonable.

    The location is near the waterway in a business park. If you arrive before dark, you can walk along the waterway path. If it is dark, there is no value to being near the water for ambience because it is too far away and they keep the blinds closed since the sun would directly beam on patrons. The bar looked fun and had tent outdoor seating for this beautiful night. The food was delicious. Our table had the bruschetta, ahi tuna poke, and fried calamari for appetizers - all good. For entree's we had fisherman's stew, pizza bolognese, Prawn Scampi and the Fettuccine al Camarones. All of them were large entree's and very good. For desert we shared JASON’S HOT FUDGE SUNDAE (birthday treat) and PROFITEROLES. Both were really good!

    Excellent food, drinks and service. Three birthday gals enjoyed perfectly prepared Chilean seabass with fresh spinach and rice. No problem substituting rice for melt in your mouth mashed potatoes. An entree of salmon was delicious. We had Bananas Foster for dessert which was quite a treat and rarely on menus these days. The restaurant even comped us a chocolate mousse YUM! The Cosmo and Lemon Drop were very good. I definitely recommend this restaurant and will return when I am in Marin.

    It was great to come back to Jason's and find that nothing has changed. The food is still excellent - and the feeling like you have found a little secret gem of a place is retained. My husband had the Miso-Glazed Chilean Sea Bass which was excellent - scrumptious. I had the Cioppino - the seafood was cooked perfectly and the broth was refreshingly light yet flavorful. I was worried that is would be too salty, but with the garlic toast for dipping, it was perfect! Thank you for making our wedding anniversary very special!

    We went to Jason's for an anniversary dinner. They were very accommodating to our seating request for a quiet table. I was also impressed with the server's attention to food allergies. The Ahi Tuna was yummy! It was prepared in an interesting and enjoyable way. We also had the gnochi, and it was also very good. Jason's is very convenient to Hwy 101 but tucked into a complex so that is feels private. The ambiance is one of soft colors and a pleasing opulent feel. For the right occasion, I would go back!

    The seafood is always prepared right here and I've never been disappointed. Our waiter seemed like he was rushing us in the beginning and not paying attention to what we said. He brought me pinot Grigio instead of noir and when a couple of us asked for water without ice, it was delivered with a thump as though it was an imposition. He never smiled. Maybe it was a bad night for him but it wasn't professional.

    We hadn't been to Jason's in almost a year, but we were pleasantly reminded of how good their food is, and how nice their service is. Some of the same staff was there, and main menu items were the same. All four of us order a seafood dish, and they were all outstanding. We also had our 15 month with us and they offered to bring him a pasta dish off the menu. The wines were great, and they have air conditioning, which was a nice escape from the recent heat wave we had been having.
