When there are 20,000 conventioneers set loose on downtown Tampa, Jackson's Bistro is a sure bet for a delicious meal. Even though every seat had been reserved for lunch, the hostess had tables outside. Steve, our amazing server, was so kind to make sure that all our needs were met in our party of six. The food is excellent, and... More

Great location to sit in the evening on the patio and to have something to drink and eat. The food quality is good. I had a burger that tasted nicely.

We had five adults and 1 teenager. The restaurant is very overpriced for what you get. My sister ordered a pasta dish that was $20 and it literally came with 8 tiny pieces. The salads were a good size that's it. Our waiter was not very good either. He read the specials and we had to stack our plates and... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our meal at Jackson's! Everything we ate was perfection! The sushi menu is extensive and has a lot of unique options. We tried the tampa roll and Thai sushi roll. Both were exceptional. I had the lobster bisque before dinner. Wow. I could have had 10 bowls of that soup it was that good!... More

Ate here on a business trip and had a pasta dish with pears. It was wonderful. Very unique but outstanding flavor. Everyone I was with enjoyed their food and went their several times during their stay to eat.

We were very disappointed with our meals at Jackson's. We went as a group of 6 adults. We loved the atmosphere and the menu looked great, but when the food arrived there was pretty much disappointment all around. The red snapper & scallops were good, but the portion was small. The blacked grouper stack with jumbo lump crab meat was... More

Recently traveling with a group for a conference in Tampa & visited Jackson's for sushi with a couple of my colleagues. Actually, we visited several times during our stay.... to the point I had seen enough sushi for quite awhile!!! But they loved it and said it was the best sushi they'd had in while! The wait staff was great.... More
