    We went to Jake's instead of Copley's (glad we did)-Fabulous food and presentation. Very good service-long wait for our food, but they were busy, so it's no big deal; only criticism is that the tables are "jammed" together-very crowded and VERY noisy. However, the food was worth it and we will be back next month when we are in town for the Auction.

    I had 7 guests for dinner tonight at Jakes. The restaurant was full and really hopping when we arrived, but we were seated immediately and treated as though we were the only guests there. Rave reviews from my guests --- entrees ordered were the Steak/Wedge, Crispy Sea Bass (2) , Scallops, Sautéed Salmon (2) and Chicken Milanese. A variety of appetizers and some shared desserts. It was a great evening of food and conversation and I'm very pleased that my guests were so pleased with Jakes. Excellent.

    I was very happy to dine at Jakes for the first time since they re-opened for the season. One of the things I really look forward to when summer ends. Even better than last year. I'm told that they've upgraded the meat purveyor and based on the absolute best rack of lamb that I can remember, must have found the best supplier ever. My partner's sea bass, which was an occasional special last year and now a regular item on the menu this year, was as superb as ever. Welcome back Jakes!

    I have owned a vacation home in Palm Springs for over 12 years and have never found the food to be great. I've tried all the hip and trendy places only to be disappointed. I must admit I didn't have high expectations going into Jakes. I now have a new favorite. To start the menu is eclectic, although not long it was very hard to decide...so many great options. I chose the Eggplant Stack. It complemented my Hendricks gin cooler perfectly! It was a hearty portion but even better was the taste...absolutely fantastic. My partner had the ribs which resembled the stack put on Fred Flintstones car which caused it to turn over! They were huge. By the look on his face they too tasted great. You will not be disappointed at Jakes!

    We each had chicken, one Marsala, one Milanese. The chicken was moist and tender and attractively presented. The garlic mashed potates were yummy. The dinner was dressed up with small additions from the chef--brussel sprouts as an appetizer and brownie bits for dessert.

    I'm not here to talk about the food or the service, both of which were very good, I'm here to tell of our interaction with the manager, which still has us fuming. At check time, we three asked for separate checks, as our totals were very unequal. We were told Jake's didn't do that, so we figured our own and told our server what to charge each of us. Two minutes later, the manager comes flying to our table to inform us we're short. I say there's no tax figured in and can they do that for us. No, they cannot. I ask what the tax rate is and his exact reply: "9%. Are you going to argue over 20 cents? Do you want a pen and paper?" And he was not quiet about it. Humiliating. Shame on Jake's for being represented by such a vile little man.

    Had dinner on second night after opening for new season. Table incompletely set, wine menu missing, drinks intended for others served to us, and slow service. Staff breaking in an electronic ordering system, which slowed service. Service uncharacteristically ragged. We will wait for several weeks to return. I'm sure Jake's will service back up to speed with more practice.

    We found Jakes in Sept 13 and the food was great. We re visited again this week , twice and were not disappointed. Food and drinks are consistently good. Only negative point for me is the most they spray from the roof of the patio, it's intrusive and unnecessary . That's only a small negative though.

    Jake's never disappoints. I was there for the third time in the past 6 months; I got the exact table on the patio as requested; our table was ready upon arrival. We were promptly greeted and service continued to be crisp, attentive without ever being too intrusive. There are always a few new dishes along with some great standards. I had the chicken piccata which was perfectly cooked, well-flavored and beautifully plated. While the special desserts were as tempting as ever, I passed. It's amazing to me that those spectacular sweets (especially the coconut cake) are only $8. Jake's never disappoints; on of Palm Springs GREAT restaurants.

    Jake's is a great addition to the Palm Springs vibe of small, cozy, interesting, and consistantly good food offerings in the design district of North Palm Springs. Always inventive and classic with a twist but never sacrificing quality. Presentation is charming and inviting. Lunch is a real deal but dinner is not to be missed. For dessert lovers this is definitely the place. Service is right on and casual with some of the friendlliest servers in the valley. Always a go to place for guests from city dwelers who don't know what PS has to offer.

She had a great knowledge of the menu and the specials for the day. She checked up on us at all the right times and made our dining experience one to remember. The food was very good, I would definitely come back for more. The ambiance, and look of the place was very sheek and tasteful. A small but great place to dine.

    Jake's is always on the list when I come to town. This time I had the sea bass which was a daily feature. It was outstanding. Given I am from northwest and get great fish routinely, I don't offer this accolade unless deserved. Plan a return trip before leaving the desert.
