This is, without a doubt, one of the BEST places to eat in Providence. And, the best sushi/Asian fusion. Excellent good, Fantastic and Friendly staff (shoutout to Makenzie, our waitress!)...I can never say enough good things about Jacky's. I go at least once a month with my dude.

Beautiful place with great views of water. When firewater event are going on, this would make for a perfect dinner location, very romantic. We ordered coconut shrimp for appetizer, was delicious with mango sauce. Dinner we got General Tso with fried rice, Grilled chicken with asparagus with garlic sauce. Everything was very good. My husbands first time and would come back.

Outdoor seating was what we reserved, but when we arrived they said that outdoor seating is closed. We chose to sit at the bar table right next to the door for adequate ventilation . The place started to fill up and it didn’t feel like enough social distance space. Food was extremely bland. Chicken chunks in General Tsos were massive in size with no spice to them whatsoever and there were maaaybe two small pieces of broccoli in the dish which was titled chicken AND broccoli. The Whole Fish entree was tasteless and unappealing. Cocktail was delicious, but the waiter took his time attending to us so we weren’t able to enjoy more of them. Skip this place!

Superb food, did take a long time to get my order though place was by no means full. Halfway through my meal there was a strong smell like dryer sheets in the air and it distracted from my meal. But the food was superb, some of the best tempura I have ever had.

Gluten free options but extremely slow service. We sat out on the veranda which was nice, there were 2 other waitpersons out there very attentive to their tables however our waitress was gone for 20 minutes at a time and we had to ask other waitress for more water as well as the bill which she brought. We only saw our waitress again when she took payment. There are only a few tables outside they should have had the same waiter or waitress handle all tables there but our waitress was not attentive at all. We would have bought more cocktails if she had even come back once to ask.

Asked for an outdoor table, wasnt given one even though most were available, drinks took a long time to arrive and garnishes were left out, cucumber martini was undrinkable, food quality was very basic for type of establishment Jackys is. The good aspects were a wide selection of cocktails, gorgeous location and very beautiful physical restaurant.

Bartender doubled as our waiter. In these times of Covid I’m sure he did the best he could but unfortunately the timing was off by a lot. He was very nice. We will go back but probably after things are normal again with how they staff for the diners.

We were a party of 9. I understook that they were breaking us up into 2 tables but a table of 3 and 6 - kind of ruined the night. Some of us neglected to mention 'no msg' and suffered the consequences. Also, wine specials advertised in the wine were fiction!
