Diner Reviews
  • "The food is great -- lively menu, nice ambiance. They advertise as a BYOB -- which they are, and you can bring your own (wine only, spirits not acceptable). However, they charge a $15/BOTTLE corking fee -- which felt like a rip-off. They do have a bar (have no idea what they serve, we expected a BYOB so we brought our own) -- and were charged $30 for the 2 bottles that they opened. The food is very good, the service was lovely -- can highly recommend the octopus salad, the burger (yeah, really) and Parmesan fries. Dinner was expensive (the food was worth the price, the corking fee of $30 felt like an overcharge)."

  • "But that night was especially "on" and memorable. Steak was to die for, cocktail perfect, cheese/jam dessert and cognac superb, and the waiter was kind enough to write down for me the names of the singers in the background music. Music perfect volume, just loud enough to enjoy if you wanted to hear it, selections perfectly chosen. I realize I'm not reviewing a concert but a restaurant, but "What a Difference a Day Makes" happened to be a great cut."

  • "We have been coming here 2-3 times per year for afternoon dates. While the cheese plate is always great, the small plates and mains are hit or miss. Seasoning and components to dishes (i.e. number of mushrooms) needs to be consistent. That said, we still enjoyed our meal. The last few times we came here, there was a lot of fruit flies and large black flies."

  • "This is a great Manayunk restaurant. Four of us for dinner - four different appetizers and entrees and four great meals. I had the chicken which was prepared sous vide - crispy skin and moist and succulent on the inside. My wife opted for the crab cakes and you had to look hard to find any breading. And our friends had the scallops and hangar steak - great choices also. They started with beet and cheese salad, and summer gazpacho soup, and I had oysters - succulent and fresh, and my wife the shrimp. Just a little room for desert so I opted for sharing some cheese with our friends, and the other choice was a selection of terrific local ice cream. And our server couldn't have been nicer, and attentive. Visit Main Street and dine here --"

  • "Been to this restaurant often, and have enjoyed it. However, this Friday night, early seating with the place almost empty, the service was much left to be desired for. Not only did the waitress not bring us the condiments we requested, but she failed to follow up on anything. The pizza I ordered was cold and I could not get her attention to reheat it. The dinner out with our daughter left us very disappointed."

  • "The food is always good at Jake's. it's not great, but very good. I just don't understand the short pours. When you go out for a nice meal and you are going to spend more than a few dollars, why pour a drink that fills 2/3 of the glass. Pouring a full drink is such an inexpensive thing to do and not pouring a good size drink generates this kind of review. At $12-15 for a drink, fill my glass."

  • "My daughter and I enjoyed our dinner on Sat. night. They held our table and were very nice about our being late due to traffic. Food was very good. We shared several small plates and liked each one. The artisan cheeses are great with a fig reduction. Mussels very tasty with good broth for bread dipping. Jake's crab cake is always good and the shrimp were plump and had a lemon sauce that really enhanced their natural flavor. Wine selection was very good with fair pricing. Our family has always enjoyed this restaurant and we will be back."

  • "Celebrating Mother's Day with my mother, wife, and 2 sons along with my older son's birthday was made better by the attentiveness of our waiter Jeremiah. He picked up on the birthday aspect of this day and provided a special surprise dessert. The staff and service was excellent even though the restaurant was packed due to Mothers Day. We will be back.

  • "We had been to Jakes for dinner and drinks and it was nothing less than excellent and fantastic menu. We went there for Brunch yesterday and it was good, but found the menu to be limited and food ok - French toast was great (very sweet). "

  • "Best is the crab cakes and then the gnocchi and then the scallops and then the shrimp dumplings… the waitress was so kind."

  • "Enjoyed the location and service more than the food. Crab cake that was recommended was ok but I wouldn't go back for. Friend, not broiled and the sauce is really what made it decent. Shaved Brussel sprouts were again, "OK", but nothing to write home about. If you want outdoor dining or a nice bar scene, try it out. "

  • "I was excited to try out this restaurant but left frustrated at the complete lack of service and outrageously small portions. First, my group got seated outside with a table that was slanted, (perhaps it was the sidewalk). There was such a slant, that our pizza kept sliding off its elavated tray. Second, it took over a half an hour to get anyone's attention to notify them that we were ready to order. We ended up getting the attention of someone who not our original waitor. Third, my octopus salad was delicious - however, I could have held it in the palm of hand. "

  • "Service is always excellent here. We always eat on Jake's side by the bar. This place is fun and vibrant while leaning more toward upscale, kinda trendy but not snobby side. The burger is amazing; also must have the Mac & Cheese and mushroom soup are both incredible. My boyfriend and I both live this place, it's a great date spot! The only reason I give 4/5 stars for food is that some of the portions are too small, yes I know they're small plates, but I find them to be a little pricy for the quantity but the quality is there so it's still worth it nonetheless. You also can't be their wine list!"

  • "On a day that poured rain, it was great to slip into the booth at Cooper's and catch up with friends. The mushroom soup is way too garlicky, but the Nicoise Salad and Calamari Salad were tasty. Service is the perfect level of attentiveness."

  • "Went out for a nice restaurant week dinner. Jake's and Cooper's isn't a spot that we would normally choose (it looks a little fancy for a casual dinner out), but they had a good menu posted and wanted to try it. It was a nice evening so we ate outdoors. Our waiter was very attentive. The food came out in a timely fashion and was very tasty. The salmon was a little over-cooked but not dry. My boyfriend's lamb was cooked to medium-rare as he requested. Overall a great experience. We would go back most likely for a drink and some appetizers outside if the weather is accommodating."

  • "There are so many great items on the menu it is hard to choose. Apps, sides and small plates are so good you can make a meal of them except for melted gouda-barely a tablespoon. Calimari salad, spinach, brussels, spicy meatballs-YUM! Rib Eye and Swordfish very good. Great drinks-try the bourbon negroni and the IPAs. Warm bread and oil is a good side for $2 but ask for extra oil. Very busy and very noisy but the service was great and we had a seat in the side room towards the back which really helped decrease the decibal level. You are sitting quite close to the next table but it is a more cozy setting. We have always had a great meal here."

  • "Our family loves to go to Jake's for birthday celebrations and so went last Sunday. They accommodated us in a large square table which is great for cross table conversations and nobody is left out. The table fits 8 but we were only 7 because one of us could not make it at the last minute. The service is superb and the food excellent! Every single item on the menu is very tasty so just get what you like and you won't be disappointed! A great touch was a glass of champagne for everybody to toast and ginger ale for my 12 years old daughter. We will be back as soon as we can!"

  • "I had not been to Jakes in years, so I didn't realize that they had a combined menu with Cooper's. Our group of three did several small plates, most of which were very good (highlights were the gnocchi, crabcake and octopus salad. The only clunker was the side of brussels sprouts, which had an overly sweet maple flavoring that just did not work. Service was OK, but the pacing of the dishes was too rapid and we felt rushed. The gnocchi alone would make me go back for another meal."

  • "Had the celery soup and pesto-- yum. and oysters-- fresh, but too much garlic. My friend's soup was so hot, it never cooled off so he had to wrap it… ha ha ah… he said it tasted even better the next day. so just wrap it :-)"

  • "I've been here numberous times. The food was good; we had the margarita pizza, the small plate roasted shrimp (which was excellent), and the beet salad (also excellent). The drinks were good as well-Citrus Blossoms. The dessert was a disappointment. Too big and pedestrian flavors. Rather have a small bite of something amazing. Not the caliber I have come to expect from Cooper's/Jake's."

  • "The only bad thing I can say is they have a $15 corking fee - so if you r going BYOB be prepared to be charge a fee. We opted to get a cocktail and brought the wine home, my hubby opened the wine for me for FREE..."

  • "Our party of four very much enjoyed our dinner. I opted for the pear salad and mussels and the rest of our group ordered mains:swordfish, chicken, pork chop. Everyone enjoyed their food and we bought the cheap wine,, which was just fine. We finished with warm almond cake and the dish of four ice creams. Definitely will return."

  • "My friends and I really enjoyed our brunch. All three of us loved our entrees ( lobster omelette, short rib hash with eggs, and short rib panini with soup). All the dishes were prepared and seasoned well, and we're served hot. The $5 drink special in the bar was a nice surprise as well. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "We were in the Phila area on VLentines night so we decided to make a reservation at Jake and Coopers. We were not disappointed. We shared the Portabello Mushroom Soup and Beet Soup. My husband had the Surf and Turf (Beef Rib) which was excellent and I had sever small plates-Crab cake, Roasted Cauliflower, and Brussels Sprouts. I LOVED the BSprouts. For dessert we shared the Peterifoles. The wine list was extensive and you can bring your own bottle and pay a corkage fee. We will definitely be back!!"
