Good food, I had lamb pita sandwich. More of a lunch/lite fare menu than traditional dinner. The service is fabulous, great service staff. The noise level is insane, but that might have been the incredibly loud person a few tables away, I want what she was having next time. We will go back. Bon appetite.

Jackson's was a loud and lively place with an emphasis on loud, especially in the bar area. We ate on the restaurant side, which offered a little less noise. The menu offers what looked to be farm to table offerings. We ordered the lamb meatballs and proscuitto with gruyere baked oysters as starters. The oysters were so good we ordered a 2nd order. The lamb meatballs were tender and had lots of fresh tasting tomato sauce and delicious onion chutney. It would have been nice if the meatballs came with some bread crostini, so we could enjoy the rest of the sauce. We then ordered a mixed mushroom pizza. The crust was very good, but the pizza was a little bland. Maybe it needed a blend of cheese, not only mozzarella. The mushrooms were cooked perfectly and the truffle oil was delicious and not overpowering. We also ordered a bottle of Tattinger champange, which was delicious, but the waitress opened it and just put it on the table with no way to keep it cold. Otherwise our server was very efficient and pleasant. Overall we would love to go back and try some other menu items. The table beside us ordered a salad which looked fresh and was huge! The experience was good but there were a few things that could be improved.

Always a go-to when I'm in Santa Rosa. Great service, awesome mussels and truffle fries. Are at a high table I the bar to watch the SF Giants game. It's not a sports bar but the crowd is friendly and the staff is always welcoming and professional. I've had many menu items and have never been disappointed!

The absolute best place for relaxing, friendly, artisan food prepared by professionals and served by the best staff. 2 adults and 2 kids, one in a high chair, we arrived with an open table reservation asking for a high chair to be available. We were early, and were able to be seated right away (12:15PM on a Sunday). They brought out a snack plate for us so that our kids could munch on something prior to the wait our food would take. This was automatic, we didn't have to ask for it, and we were able to put our orders in leisurely and were completely satisfied. I asked the bartender for a drink recommendation on the cocktail she provided, and was able to give expert advice. The food was stellar, as always, we have several favorites we always order (lamb meatballs, buratta, etc) but this time we got dessert purely because we didn't want the afternoon to end. Our family was very well cared for. Thank you Staff!

The menu is small but everything looked good. I had the roasted cauliflower and beet salad with grilled shrimp. Both excellent. Their cocktail menu was intriguing and I loved my cocktail. I'll definitely be back to try some other cocktails.

It was slammed so the service was slow but the staff was a little frazzled and so less pleasant than normal but not rude but more short and direct versus the normal cool calm and collected vibes they normally have. Drinks crushed and food was amazing.

The Burger was super salty. I'm not sure why they asked how I wanted it cooked. Medium rare is not the same as medium well, which is what I received. I would have sent it back, but the waitress was hard to track down. Truffle fries are good, but over priced.

Nothing special Tried it out after all the other good reviews. Sat down and it took over 30 minutes to order food. Server was not service oriented. A simple request to swap fries for fingerling potatoes was met with "Kitchen says we can only do this one time. Next time we can't swap" Well - I'm from out of town and next time I'm in town, this restaurant won't be on the list to visit.
