Diner Reviews
  • "Our meal was reliably good, but on our last two visits, two service "pet peeves" have occurred: (1) When the food runner brought our appetizers and meals to the table, he had to repeatedly ask, "Who had the scallops?" or "Who had the filet?" The food runner should know that, assuming the server placed our orders correctly. (2) Although two of us ordered beef, our waiter didn't return to check that it had been prepared properly until our meals were nearly gone. We enjoy Jake's and are likely to return, but we'll be watching for improvements in these two areas."

  • "Every time we visit Palm Springs from LA we go to Jake's for either dinner or bunch or both! The food is amazing and cakes are to die for. Never had a bad experience. Make reservations."

  • "I manage a small hotel in Palm Springs and had not been to Jakes, guests of mine raved about it and when they left they gave me a gift certificate. I took my best friend, the Executive Chef of another small hotel. It was small and quiant. I liked that even though we were on Palm Canyon, we didn't feel as if we were. It was quiet and not overcrowded. The food was good, I had the Petite Filet & Wedge, meat was cooked as ordered and it was just the perfect serving size. She had a fish dish, which she liked. I'm glad we went, it's kind of out of the way and not a place I would have thought about going due to the many choices there are. I will definately refer my guests to Jake's in the future and I will return!"

  • "We couldn't recommend Jake's highly enough. The scallop appetizer was phenomenal. Their specialty margarita was really good. Awesome salads and unique yummy desserts. If you're contemplating going you definitely should. The atmosphere outside was great too!"

  • "A friend suggested we visit Jakes, and from it's name we thought we were in for more typical fare. The outdoor seeing was ideal, the staff incredible and the food even better. Totally worth the visit!"

  • "Been to Jake's many times. It is a favorite and I always give it five stars. This time, something was a little off. Maybe it was the waiter? He seemed nervous and fidgety...or something. Perhaps he was new. The rack of lamb was good, but not over-the-top roll your eyes to heaven it usually is. Carrot cake for dessert just didn't have much flavor. I'm thinkin' this was a "one off" and won't hesitate to go again."

  • "I had the filet mignon which was cooked to perfection and my date had the baby back ribs. Everything was delicious and the atmosphere was romantic. Our only complaint was the horrible table next to ours that was super annoying."

  • "We traveled to P.S. to meet another couple for a few days. We tend to enjoy quaint bistro style restaurants and after reading reviews, decided on Jake's. A truly wonderful evening was had by all. Exceptional service, great food, and the most amazing cakes....save room! My husband and I liked our dinner so much, we returned the following afternoon for lunch. A true find!"

  • "Rack of lamb was not hot. Potatoes were burned and not eatable. Entre was slow in coming and had to ask waiter if it had been forgotten. It was served immediately after asking. We might return for lunch, but not for dinner!!"

  • "We always eat breakfast here on our way home to LA after a weekend in Palm Springs. We've eaten lunch here as well and plan to have dinner on our next trip out. By far, our favorite spot!! Great food... great service... and you have to try a piece of cake... I'll just leave it at that!!"

  • "All in all Jake's never dissapoints, you are always made welcome, the service is great, food is wonderful and the wine selection is tremendous. I always like to be on the patio, but for our rowdy group of ten, we dined inside and had a truly wonderful evening. We introduced friends to Jake's and they couldn't stop saying thank you the following day. Thank you for making my wife's birthday special."

  • "Again a disappointing dinner. I ordered the crispy skin sea bass and indeed, i got mostly skin. The special was also sea bass and people who ordered it got a nice center peice. I guess I got the leftover tail."

  • "Went to Jake's for brunch with a group of 8 and everyone enjoyed it. Our table was waiting for us on the patio when we arrived, and we had our dog with us, so it worked out great. The brunch menu has a good variety of dishes - something for everyone. The items are all a bit unusual. Between us, we had their version of eggs benedict, BLT, Milanese sandwich, steak and egg sandwich, and cobb salad. None of it was boring - there was a twist on every dish, and it was all very good. The patio was full, and the place was lively, but not overly noisy. Although we didn't try any, the cakes look wonderful and the servings are very large, so we would save some room for dessert next time. We all enjoyed it and will keep it on our list for PS!"

  • "Whether you sit at the Bar, the tiny front porch or either of the two small rooms, it's fun. People are chatty and the food is casual chique and fairly priced ..went there three times during the holiday!"

  • "I want to love Jake's, because it's close to my house and it occupies a great space, but the food and customer service just never seem to be up to snuff. I get the feeling that the kitchen and/or owners are policy-strict, which doesn't necessarily make for a welcoming environment. Substitutions aren't allowed. Asking questions about an item seem to be discouraged. I love good food, and get excited about it, so I always have a question or two! The serving portions are small enough - and I'm not a huge eater - that I was eating again at home 2 hours laters. Small portions, just OK food and stern waitstaff? Meh."

  • "My husband and I try to go as often as possible -it's just tough to get in during season. I had the Seafood Pad thai - which was delicious - nice and flavorable with a good bite! He is a vegetarian and had the EggPlant tower which he found delicious. But the real gem were our friends' meals - they had the SeaBass special - which they described as the best SeaBass they had ever had! My only wish - that they had more than two vegetarian options. Otherwise, bravo!"

  • "Food and service have always been first rate and excellent. Hostess however is an absolute b-tch. Completely tactless and uncouth. And downright rude. This restaurant thrives on very good food and service. Everyday she remains there it takes a hit. Hopefully the owners will notice too. Can't see her staying there much longer. We will return because once you get past her everything is great. Just hold your nose and smile. There's light at the end of the tunnel."

Whether you love comfort food like meatloaf and mash potatoes or fresh fish .... Jake's menu has something for everyone's taste. Important to say ... leave room for one of their fabulous desserts."

  • "I have eaten at Jake's before and enjoyed it so I returned when A friend wanted to treat me to dinner. This was a truly disappointing experience! My friend ordered the rack of lamb. The chops were separated and with whatever was the side dish, dumped on the plate. It looked very unappetizing and a mess. I ordered sea food pad Thai and it was passable. At that point we decided to have our coffee at home. I am very hesitant to return, but maybe for lunch or brunch."

From the complimentary ahi tuna appetizer to the giant salty caramel vanilla bean cake slice that came with a birthday candle, we could not have had a better meal, more attentive service or a better outdoor dining experience than we did here. Just loved it!!!"

  • "Service was friendly and competent. Prices for dinner were fair. Food was well prepared and tasty. Dessert cakes were super. Do not like the way we had 2 or 3 different wait staff - seems to be a common trend in Palm Springs. Principal waiter didn't ask how each of our courses were, but manager did come around to ask if things were good - a nice touch."

  • "A lot of people had recommended Jakes to us so we thought we'd give it a try. Unfortunately, one diner's meal had to be sent back as the meat was undercooked (lamb) and not very tasty at all. Two of the meals were quite good (eggplant tower and sea bass special), but again, overpriced. And the 4th person's meal was just ok (seafood special). I think if the prices were about 25% lower we'd have felt differently about the place. On the plus side, our servers were quite attentive and friendly, and responded well to the one diner's poor meal by replacing it with a more expensive selection. They charged her the price of the original lower priced meal which was a nice gesture. The salted caramel cake was sweet and delicious."
