Description: Established in 2012 Jackson's Food + Drink is the reinvented version of Jackson's Village Bistro which was open in Hermosa Beach for 10 years. After they lost the lease for the Hermosa space Scott and Sharon put pen to paper to take stock of what elements were keepers and what aspects of the business should evolve. The new restaurant features the same flavor-focused menu options with many of the "best of" Jackson's Village Bistro dishes. In addition, the menu was expanded to include small plates offerings which encourages diners to explore their tastebuds.

a quick bite after a movie turned into a small excursion into their world of small plates. the watermelon/feta/mint salad, fanny bay oysters and shortribs were all delightful. the charcuterie plate and blackberry pie were good closures. generally good service (the place was busy/noisy) and we did get to talk w/ the Chef, who came to the table. There remains a wealth of options left to try ... we'll be back.

They have an imaginative chef. I enjoyed the goat cheese and fig salad, and the honey-pomegranate salmon. The menu has small plates as a category so that you can order samples of different things to try, or eat light if standard entrees usually give you three or four nights of leftovers.

The drinks mixed at the bar are perfectly prepared. The happy hour specials make it even better. The minestrone soup is second to none, but nothing compares to the Filet Mignon Risotto. These guys put a lot of TLC into everything they do and it shows.

Good place for happy hour. Nice indoor and outdoor seating.

The staff seemed to be on top of customer service and what they were supposed to be doing.

Decent menu selections, including clams and a squash soup.

Very reasonably priced food menu and drink menu.

All of the food we had here was delicious! We started by ordering from the small plates part of the menu (which really aren't small at all!). Jackson's chili and the filet mignon risotto were great (although I think just having a filet by itself & the risotto as the side would have made a better entree item). The burger was tasty and well-cooked. The Cavatelli was ok, but the portion size was small for an entree. Our drinks were also very good. I loved my caipirinha! I would definitely go back.
