Jackson's Bistro Bar & Sushi Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I noticed this restaurant the last time we were in Tampa and thought we’d give it a try on our next visit. Making our reservation through Open Table was quick and easy. We were there for lunch and enjoyed the outside seating. The service, food, and view were great. We both had sushi and have only good things to say about the food. We will definitely be visiting again.
I made reservations and arrived on time with whole party. Informed the hostess that we were here and was asked to stand aside for a few minutes. Numerous parties came in after us and were seated immediately. Most did not have reservations. I went back to the hostess stand and we were seated, finally. We ordered our food and never saw the waiter again. One of my daughter's never received her salad. We never received refills on our waters. My daughter finally had to basically grab the waiter and eventually received her salad (after we were all done eating). The food was disappointing for all of us. I will not be back, nor would I recommend Jackson's to anyone.
Our server didn't know the specials and had to go check. The Brick Chicken was a brick - hard and dried out. Finally she came back to check on us. We ordered another dish which took 25 minutes to get. I asked the flavors of gelato and again she had to check. It was very good. I ordered coffee which took time to have refilled. One person ordered Port. The glass was filled with sediment. The parking is comp for only 2 hours, but due to the service it took additional time for dinner. Not complaining about $5.00 for 20 minutes but it was unnecessary. We will certainly never go back.
Didn't want the pressure of all the Thanksgiving day preparation. Have two toddlers. Decided to do something different. Knew it was the right decision once we got there. All there seemed relieved to be out, and happy to be at Channelside. Have no complaints. Would do it again. Arrive early. Don't think twice if in the same position! Enjoy!
We all had a fine meal consisting of seafood dishes and the wine selection was decent. We sat outside to enjoy the scenery however the music emanating from the outside bar was loud and obnoxious. It was club style music played at a high volume and made conversation difficult, and this was at 6 o'clock!
Had a great pre-concert dinner - both food and service by Edwin. My friend went with sushi and I enjoyed the chicken Marsala. Very convenient to Amalie Arena. Sufficient parking and 2 hour complimentary so not paying for parking at restaurant and at the arena.
Great view on the water. Very enjoyable.
I have always left 5 Stars for the Brunch. However, the last 2 visits, the food taste was not at all up to par. We went late the last time, believing the lateness (around 1) was the factor for the not so great food taste. This time, we went at 11:30 and the food taste was still just "so-so". If they have new cooks, I'm hoping they will learn the recipes really soon!!!
