Food was delicious, very creative and well presented.
Crab Rangoon was cold and soggy though.
First time here and will certainly return. Just an odd location but nice walk along the river. Will certainly return when in the area.

Made a reservation through Open Table for my wife's birthday. Specifically mentioned it was her birthday and her name in my request. We have been there multiple times and had good experiences. Table was not read so we ordered a drink at the bar.

Table ready and our server was Allis. She was very polite and things seemed to be going well. We had appetizers, ordered a bottle of champagne, some sushi for a second course and our entrees. Entrees were overcooked and had little taste which was surprising as the apps and sushi were so good.

Ordered cappuccino and dessert. No spoons on table. No candle in the slice of flavorless Mousse cake, no one singing, zero acknowledgement of the occasion. OK so maybe the staff didn't know. Wrong! Our waitress wished her a "Happy Birthday" as we were exiting! Wow. Also it was her second day, thanks Jackys for giving us an inexperienced waitperson for a special occasion. Very disappointed.

I have been to Jacky's on the water front many times and this time was just as good as the other, The Sushi is some of the best with amazing presentation and some very creative options. If you are in providence and looking for Sushi go no place else.

I was very desapointed with our waiter. She took forever to serve us. We literally waited for almost 20 minutes to her to come to our table. And the food wasnt worth the price we payed. I went there to celebrate my birthday but I won't go there again.

The food is amazing, and the sushi is some of the best around! Great servers, and Catherine (one of the Managers) is fantastic! Would highly recommend for most any occasion! The free valet parking makes it very easy to get in and out of!

Always have a tradition to go there on my birthday. Best sushi I’ve ever tried... just wish the waiter didn’t rush us out the door. Felt very uncomfortable and uninvited. Will probably go to another jackys location next time.

My wife and I went to Jackys for dinner on a Friday night. The restaurant was not overly busy which I found unusual for a Friday night. Perhaps it was because the reservation system was experiencing problems? The hostess was very welcoming. Our table was ready but we decided to have a cocktail at the bar before dinner. The bartender was very attentive and the drinks were made quickly. The drinks were very good.

We were seated at our table, a nice roomy booth facing the windows. The dining room is beautiful. The evening was perfect until the waiter arrived. Our waiter, Kent, arrived and lacked any pleasantries or emotion. Didn’t ask if we had ever been to Jackys before, didn’t talk about the menu, and didn’t interact with us at all.

We ordered the crab Rangoon, spicy tuna, and gyoza. The appetizers arrived and Kent placed it on the tables edge outside our reach. A bit annoying. The appetizers were excellent. For entrees we ordered the steak tips which came with rice, General Gaos chicken, and the pineapple fried rice. When the entrees arrived they were placed on the table, outside our reach, with no comment at all. The steak tips were very good but there was only (5) of them and they were very small. The pineapple fried rice was very fresh, with generous amounts of shrimp and chicken. It was a huge portion. The General Gaos was a very large portion and was also very good.

This is a very nice restaurant and we will go back in the summer. We will just make sure we don’t get Kent. No hard feelings, maybe he was having an off night, but it did put a damper on the evening. I recommend this restaurant. It is a bit pricy, but the atmosphere and food is worth it. Larger portions on the tips would have been nice.

My wife and I had lunch at jacky's last weekend and loved the food, ambience and the service. The shrimp and vegetable tempura was perfect as were the tuna dumplings (prepared non-spicy for us). The views of downtown Providence were equally as outstanding as the food. We'll definitely be back,

Great pre-theater venue with a lovely view of the river basin. A wide variety of oriental dishes - spicy, vegetarian, sushi, noodles - to satisfy a range of dining preferences. The menu is lengthy! And there is always Peking Duck - a great treat. Very lively.

I wouldn’t suggest them. We went Saturday night 2/10/18 for an anniversary dinner. I got the gluten free menu handed to me on a dirty piece of small scrap paper. The bartender couldn’t answer any questions about the menu and we ended up leaving after the appetizers, which were below average. Other than the view and decor it’s over priced and not worth it.

Impeccable service. Decided to bring my significant other here for our anniversary and I knew it wouldn't disappoint! The ambiance, food, service... was amazing to say the least. Thanks to our waiter especially for remembering it was our anniversary and requesting designs on our dessert- shows his attention to small details. Thank again!
