How can one person so ruin a great meal?

What a great place for a restaurant—the view is extraordinary! Once our party of six was seated (April 14), the waiter informed us that we were dealing with a new menu and that there could be some sputters along the way as the restaurant became more familiar with its new bill of fare.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the fare here. We had read good things about it and werequite satisfied when we left. The sushi was cold and fresh. They had plenty of traditional rolls as well as a few exotic choices. They had everything on the menu which is nice because often at other sushi bars they are out of... More

We were seated right away on. Friday night around 8 PM, because we said we'd eat inside. The food was excellent - I had Grouper as did one other person at the table. Very fresh fish! I would definitely return. The only minus is it is overpriced for what is served.

A large group of my friends and family all first time visitors came for brunch on Sunday afternoon. Our server was not overly friendly at all and could barely keep up with the plate removal and refills. I requested outdoor seating since I heard they are known for their view of Tampa Bay, and was told they wouldnt have enough... More

we enjoyed lunch at Jackson's in Tampa. It had great indoor and outside seating. We dined outside by the water. The restaurant had great service and ambience. We did not have sushi, but they have an impressive offering of local, fresh seafood. It's a bit pricey, but we found it worth the cost. The food was excellent and they have... More

Tried to eat dinner here after their Easter Brunch. Told to wait 1 hour so they could turn the service, despite empty tables everywhere, and seeing bar patrons order off dinner menu, eat and depart within that hour. Finally get seated at the least desirable table, despite empty tables everywhere. Food quality was good, as well as the bar experience.... More
