Our first time here, had the scallop/jalapeno causa as an appetizer (it should be billed as such because it is too small as an entrée), it was interesting but average in flavor, mostly tasted only the jalapeno. Hubs had glazed salmon and I had the ginger prawns. Salmon entrée was good per hubs, but noticeably shy on what accompanied the salmon. My ginger prawns on the other hand had ample veges with the prawns, and there were ample prawns, just a tad on the bland side for what I was expecting from GINGER. Warm sake was very good and service was very good, even tho our waiter appeared new.
Very good food, excellent service, the best Asian Restaurant on the coast
Wonderful dining, outstanding service, fantastic food, thank you!
Very disappointed that the spring rolls were taken off the menu.
While Jia was good, I really hope they will bring back some of the menu items that were removed with the latest menu change. The doughnuts were one of my family's favorite desserts anywhere.
We love Jai's...but...my wife and I both ordered the shrimp kung poa, but they did something with the sauce which made it incredibly salty. We were hungry and didn't want to miss the 7 o'clock show, so we struggled through the meal. I ate mine, but my wife gave up. We informed our waiter Scotty, who said he informed the chef, but no other consideration was given to remedying our complaint.
Wonderful staff and service! Food was outstanding! Thank you!
Katie was our server and was super. Knew the menu, and gave great counsel. Jeff assisted and was very attentive. Menu has changed dramatically- no duck, which along with butterfish was the best item on the menu. While fried fish is no longer whole fried fish - it’s a fried carcass rolled around fried fish nuggets. The fish has a hint of curry which is absolutely not Chinese. Spicy beef was tasty but curry was overwhelming. So if you like curry Asian fusion, it’s great. If you don’t like curry, it isn’t for you. Sadly, the menu is definitely not real Asian food any longer.
The sushi, on the other hand, is still fantastic.
So JIA is for sushi lovers and those with a spicy palate.
Dragon berry cocktail was outstanding. Lemon drop cocktail, not the real deal. It was vodka with lemon juice vs a real lemon drop.
Service and ambience were outstanding.
Unfortunately our experience at Jia on this occasion was not up to standard. We we seated 25 minutes after our reservation time. Once seated it took a further ten minutes or more before we were acknowledged and we had to mention this to a staff member after the couple seated after us, at the next table, were served.
It seemed that they were very understaffed. Our order was taken down incorrectly, main course took forever and then we were given the bill without being asked if we wished for any dessert or more drinks. I don’t think that it was noticed that this was a birthday celebration at all.
We were compensated for the very late seating.
The whole evening was far below Jia’s usual high standard.
This is the second time we have eaten there since they changed the menu. Both have been disappointing. Why mess with something that wasn't broken? :(
New menu. Best egg drop soup. Not on menu but you can get it.
Great spot! Food, staff and service were great! Thank you!
Value for portions of food received was very low. Could not substitute the Jasmine rice for another rice, even when offered to pay extra
Very good quality food. We had the shrimp, chicken, and scallops. Other Japanese steak houses include appetizers. Value was adequate.
We enjoy eating at the Jia every time we stay at the Beau Rivage. Very friendly staff and great food.
The food was delicious. We had a lobster roll as our appetizer and it would very good. For entrees we had the Ginger Prawns and Shrimp Tempura. The tempura was light and crispy, not greasy. Both entrees were very good. We split the Coconut Pot de Creme for desert and it was creamy and delicious.
While the food we ordered was all very good, we were disappointed with some of the menu changes. The doughnuts with the 3 sauces was one of our favorite dishes and is now gone, as are the gyoza and pu pu platter. We are fairly regular Jia diners and would love to see those items return to the menu. The new lamb dish was very good!
Fantastic as always!
Great!! A super place would recommend it !!
Have been to Jia a few times before and was not impressed with the food this time. Sorry
They decided to change the chef which was a huge mistake, as the men was changed and even those dishes that came from the old menu taste ver6 different. Awful mistake and we are not going there anymore.
Everything was Wonderful!
Authentic inspired Asian food. Service was outstanding.
We were very disappointed in the menu changes. They took off crab fried rice (which is why we went there), wontons, & no egg rolls... also took off sweet & sour shrimp or chicken, no sweet & sour anything!
Prolly won’t go back unless menu changes, very disappointed!!!!
We have been loyal customers several times a year. But we don’t like the
new menu. Best fish was the duck, which is no longer offered. Then they jacked up the price of the King Pao lobster dish from approx $35 to $75. And the Mongolian
ribeye is over price. And the Butterfish smelled fishy.
I had the Calamari and it’s was excellent; crispy with a fabulous dipping sauce! The ginger salad I highly recommend and the lettuce wraps were great too! I will say portions are large enough to share! If your in town, try this restaurant for Asian
Cuisine. The restaurant also has a great ambience; I ate all alone and did not mind because it was dimly lit and tables were well spaced.
I was there with a girlfriend for a girls’ night out pre-concert dinner. The food was good but way overpriced for the small portions. Our waiter was outstanding, checking on us frequently, very polite, offered appetizer suggestions when we asked. By the same token there was a woman, I guess she was a busser, who was hovering around our table every time we looked up. It was unnerving because not only was she always around but she came right up to the table and just stood there staring at our plates multiple times. It was entirely too noisy, with staff dropping and breaking plates not once but twice while we were there. It was also so dark I had to use my cell phone to see the menu.
I might go back, but I would think hard about it, mostly because it’s overpriced and the portions are small. The ambience would probably be nice for a date if you could get rid of the weird hovering woman, the staff could hold on to the plates, and you aren’t all that hungry.
Pre concert dinner. Food is always great. Very good selection of drinks. They make great martinis.
We ordered the steak this time and it was Fabulous. Jennifer was very informative with the menu questions and attentive to our requests. We highly recommend the Jia for any occasion and you won't regret whatever your menu selection is.
Great snack after the concert ,awesome service
Our "reservation" saw us waiting with people who walked up getting seated before we did. Service was good. Curry noodles had no curry sauce on them. Pho was okay, but a little too sweet. A little overpriced for what it was. Not horrible, but won't go again.
The food was ok. Not great, not terrible. Our server was very nice, attentive, and personal. Unfortunately the food did not live up to the prices.
We love the food and the servers are great!!!! We always enjoy dining there.
Very nice place. Excellent service
Just sit at the sushi bar and let them serve you. The main restaurant was either understaffed or under managed. Food served was not timely, it was cold. Have been here before and it was great, maybe just an off night.
Everything was very good, food, service, atmosphere and value.
A little off new chef. New menu in September
ON AUGUST 10TH 2018 MY FRIENDS AND I HAD DINNER AT JIA. I HAVE BEEN AT JIA AT LEAST 30 TIMES OVER THE PAST 8 YEARS. MY FRIENDS MEALS WERE GOOD TO VERY GOOD. MINE WAS TERRIBLE. I ORDERED THE ORANGE CHICKEN DISH. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT. IT LOOKED LIKE SOMETHING FROM A FOOD COURT. THE CHICKEN AND BROCCOLI WAS ONE SOGGY MESS AND THE CHICKEN WAS CUBED AND NOT CRISPY PIECES. I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO REORDER BECAUSE WE WERE IN A HURRY BECAUSE WE HAD TICKETS TO A CONCERT. I TALKED TO THE MANAGER AND ALL HE DID WAS MAKE THE EXCUSE THAT THE DISH ALWAYS COME OUT SOGGY. (WHY SELL A DISH THAT SUCKS, TAKE IT OFF THE MENU OR FIX IT.) HE DID NOT TAKE IT OFF THE BILL. THIS WAS THE WORST MEAL I HAD AT JIA. THE HOST TOLD ME THEY HAVE A NEW CHEF. I DON'T THINK I WILL GO BACK TO JIA.
Love Jia. When I come back home, I make it a frequent stop spot. Especially with the addition of the Sports Book, this is going to be an easy home run. Wish y’all just could revamp the sushi rolls with more ALL RAW options! Nigiri is cool but let’s get some more creative juices, not everything has to be baked or tempura fried! But, love love Jia!
