We tried to get reservations at a few of our favorites but they were booked so we ended up at Jackson's and oh my ... I was very impressed. We started with the cauliflower, Mac and cheese and burrata. They were FABULOUS. perfectly prepared and very tasty. I had the Cobb salad and it was very good, well balanced. I was very pleased the other restaurants were booked!

This was my second visit with friends. We were in the area for Levi's Gran Fondo. Excellent service and very attentive staff. The menu is simplistic and a little limited, but all of our selections were well made and enjoyable. The bar accommodated our special requests and the staff adjusted for a late dinner guest of ours without missing a beat. This is not Michelin dining, but it is a great location for a very nice experience, especially if you are celebrating or looking for a little atmosphere to kick off your weekend. I would definitely return.

Food and service were great. Noise level extremely high - ‘energetic’ as Open Table likes to call the highest noise level is not the right word - noisy is more accurate. We had to shout across the table.

Everything that we ordered here was delicious and the team of servers were quick and attentive. The skillet garlic bread was yum! Only downside was that it was a bit loud for us. For most people though it would probably be fine and be "energetic." We would still go back again though...the food we ordered was great and so many other things on the menu looked amazing as well!

We were in Santa Rosa for a family wedding. Had dinner for 10 adults at Jackson's Bar and Oven. Service was fabulous - they had no problem taking care of our large group. Cocktails were wonderful. Our server was prompt and made sure everyone had a drink at all times. Menu had something for everyone. I would recommend this restaurant if you are in town for the weekend.

I read other reviews and learned about the new dining room so I asked to be seated there (due to noise) - and it was perfect. We had a party of 8 with 3 of those being a bit hard of hearing, so it made all the difference in the world! The service was fantastic and the food was exceptional. Price point for the quality, quantity, and creative aspects of each dish was a pleasant surprise.

Service was professional yet very rushed.
The food was mixed-tomato salad was great, chicken paillard didn’t make sense served on top of the shoestring fries-it made most of them extremely oily from the chicken preparation, rendering them inedible.

If you are looking for a place to talk and catch up with friends this may not be the place. But if you are looking for great tasting food it should be your first stop. Everything was flavored to perfection.

Jackson's B&G is one of our "go to" places in Santa Rosa. Food is consistency well prepared and the menu selections varied. Cocktails are some of the best around. Pizza...excellent. Service is always prompt and cordial. It's hard for me to find a negative, but if I had to pick one, it would be the noise level around the bar at peak times. That's when we ask for a table on the top level.

It's really loud inside; have to yell at each other. Baffling would help.

The food is delicious. Kudos to the chef. And the service was good. There were 5 of us and everybody really liked their meals. Plus, the table shared the fries and beignets for dessert.

Service was attentive but not overly intrusive. Food was prepared quickly and was innovative. Extra plates were offered for spilt entrees. Best thing though was after the meal when they went out of their way to contact me for a forgotten item.

Above and beyond!

Just a block from the SMART train, this is a hip place to order food or drinks. Service was quick, food was quite good, decor is great. My caterer friend recommended this to me, doesn't get better than that!

Very good as always.
Great Heirloom tomato and burrata salad. Had the Mac & cheese for the first time and really enjoyed, can be share as it is a rather large portion.
My guests had the octopus salad , and the Caesar salad and Heirloom tomato soup. Bothe were very good
And of course , the best soft serve olive oil sea salt to close the meal.

I made a reservation because we were celebrating my boyfriends birthday and requested a table with a window. When we got there they had reserved a table upstairs and we got to overlook the whole bar and restaurant, it was intimate, yet we had a birdseye view of all the activity.
We were served excellent Manhattan's and dinner was delicious. The service was not overbearing, just the right amount. I've never been to Jackson's Bar and Oven even though it is in my neighborhood, but I will definitely revisit for another occasion.

I recently ate at Jackson’s during a quick overnight trip to Santa Rosa. I wasn’t expecting much, as I currently live in Napa, where there is an abundance of really good food.

I have to admit, I was absolutely BLOWN away with the food and the staff was also incredibly attentive.

I think I now have a new favorite place and although I will have to find the time to drive to Santa Rosa from Napa to enjoy it... Jackson’s is that good!!!

We were so grateful that they accommodated our request for the booth in the back. We had hoped for a quiet spot to visit with family. However. It was still way too loud to hear each other.

Unfortunately the rest of the experience was not great. We had been to Jackson’s before and loved it. They offer a fun snack plate for the kids while waiting for food to arrive. Unfortunately this time the service was slow. The food was not hot and flavors were just okay. Then it took some time to get the bill taken care of when we were long overdue to leave. Over $250 for 4 adults and 2 kids. With our meals being pizza and burgers.

Not sure we’ll go back. We’ve had great meals at Jackson’s. This just wasn’t one of them.
