Was a good dining experience overall, only downfall was we thought the sushi selection was bigger due to pictures online we were a little misled also quality of sushi was not better than your typical habatchi spot. Other than that top of the line!

My wife and the other couple we were with all had fish and said it was good. On the other hand, I don't eat fish so I ordered chicken Marsala, which I love. Unfortunately, Jackson's chicken Marsala was a huge disappointment. The chicken was dry and tough, and the Marsala sauce tasted like brown gravy not Marsala sauce. If I go back to Jackson's again I will try a different non-fish dish and hope it's better.

I was disappointed that many of the dishes were empty and wasn't refilled quickly. Pancakes and waffles were cold with empty whip cream bowl and no fruit toppings. For the price of the brunch we paid for it really wasn't worth it.

Menu — food and wine was perfect. Plenty of choices for almost any palette! Great view of the bay even though it was cold outside. Service was remarkable thanks to ours that was in training - he is being trained well.

Definitely going back
