- Jake's was Great!TonyDined on 8/2/2014My wife and I rarely get a chance to experience the higher end of dining. So our time at Jake's was thooyughly enjoyed. Staring with the hostesses (one in training) to our superb waitress Gloria... Let me stop there. Though our meals were excellent, my wife and I both agree, Gloria is the reason for our extremely possitive review. She was engagingly entertaining. without being overbearing. She was exceptionally knowledgeable. ..and (if I may) cute too. We will be back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Simply Awesome!!!SteaknWineDined on 6/28/2014Was my son's last meal before he went away to camp and he chose Jake's in East Meadow. So glad he did. We had a wonderful meal and tremendous service from our server Kirk. He was knowledgable, funny and engaging. Our appetizers and entrees arrived hot and in a timely manner. The GM, Justin, has complete control over the diningroom and makes sure that everyone feels comfortable. Of note: their bone-in NY Strip is absolutely delicious and I can't wait to go back for another. Great job Jake's. Thank you so much!Special Features:
- great waiter and managerOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 6/25/2014We took my son there for a milestone birthday. Outstanding food with good value. My wife and I had the $28 three course meal-appetizier(e.g. fried calamari, baked calms); main course- steaks including a nice short ribs, salmon; chicken parm; and a nice dessert. My son had the surf and turf-lobster tail and filet mignon-$48. They have a nice selection of wines by the glass and abt a dozen beers on tap including a couple of ales. Really nice inside bar and outside patio/bar area. Super knowledgeable and attentive waiter and manager(Justin). Justin bought us a round of drinks and signature appetizer. Super classy and much appreciated! We will be back and bring our friendsSpecial Features:
- NewgDined on 6/20/2014Beautiful Friday night, thought we would meet friends at the outdoor patio. Grabbed a table and waited, not only for our friends but for our beverages. It took forever to get a drink. When the drink did finally come it we horrible. Then the waiter forgot our appetizer order. ..then the salad dressing was like straight vinegar. The noise of Hempstaed tpk was loud as the trucks and motorcycles zoomed and rattled by. The table next to us was smoking....had a nice time catching up with friends but will not go back.
- PoorVertaeDined on 6/20/2014The worst steakhouse I and my family have ever experienced. Steak was very fatty, tough and improperly cooked. Service was no better. I can't say enough about had bad it was! The only highlight is that our dog enjoyed the steak grizzle and fat at home.
- windywayDined on 6/5/2014Food and service was excellent! Only real issue i had was they recently made all streets around the restaurant for residents only and the parking lot doesn't have nearly enough room for all of the customer cars so it basically leaves you with no other choice but to wait in the lot for someone to finish and leave so we could park. That made us a half hour late for our reservation...they had no other suggestions on where to park either. I dont know if they valet any other nights of the week but they had no valet when I was there on a Thursday.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- DisappointedTobettaVIPDined on 5/13/2014Four of us went out for a celebration. One person from our party had to send back his steak twice. It was very upsetting for all of us. We all order creamed spinach and it was unappetizing! Disgusting that is!
- WowMoheemDined on 5/11/2014The food was amazing and the service was wonderful. I have fallen in love with this place. I love my steak rare and it was cooked to perfection. My children are picky eaters and they loved their seafood dish. Highly recommend this place.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Luv2eatDined on 5/10/2014Fortunately we've been here several times so we WILL go back. This time was a bit disappointing. My shell steak special was tasteless - steak and veggies both! My husband's filet mignon was wonderful. Server (Kirk) was great.
- 4 hours of HeavenneedstogooutmoreDined on 5/3/2014We chose Jake's because it was equidistant between us and the other couple we were meeting. My husband and I were meeting our good friend's new beau for the first time and Jake's was perfect!! Our waiter, Paul was attentive but didn't hover. The food was fantastic and the drinks were potent! I had the 'grey goose Le fizz' and now I have to find the recipe to have it at home as well. We spent four hours catching up and getting to know our new friend. We never felt rushed to leave. I can;t wait to go back again!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great neighborhood steakhouseNy18Dined on 5/3/2014Pleasant atmosphere great steaks and seafood. Save room for dessert overall great experience and service!Special Features:
- Loved the FoodTwinsMom37Dined on 5/2/2014We were drawn in due to restaurant week. I loved the food, especially the boneless short ribs, the wedge salad was good but a little too much dressing. I loved the chocolate pretzel martini. Not for everyone but if you like that type of drink, it's great. My only complaint is the service wasn't very good. We were left sitting for a while without anyone coming by. My glass was empty for a while before the waiter came back to ask if I wanted another one. Overall, though, I enjoyed it and would go backSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- restaurant week winnerDSDdancemomDined on 4/30/2014Chose Jake's because it offered a restaurant week menu and is halfway between where my friend and I live. What a fabulous find. There was a huge selection on the menu, something for everyone. We had ordered fried calamari and I had mussels in white wine sauce as our appetizers. For dinner we chose salmon and chicken parmesan, which was served in the biggest portion known to man! Absolutely delicious! To dessert we chose brownie ala mode and Jake's cream pie, which wasn't what I expected. I believe that the restaurant offers a price fixe menu and I plan to return. Kirk was our server, great kid and extremely hospitable. Thanks!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good Food some loud patronsFrankieboyDined on 4/29/2014We all enjoyed our meals at Jakes this week. All of the food was well prepared and very flavorful. The experience was nearly spoiled by some very loud people at another table. I had to change my seat so I could hear the other guests at my table. Fortunately the loud group left not long after we arrived. As far as the meal is concerned, I have nothing bad to say; everything was prepared exactly as I like it. In other words the food was a home run. The noise level was annoying.
- A Hidden GemMynewsteakhouseDined on 4/28/2014I took my Husband out for his Birthday after reading the reviews I decided to go to Jakes Steahouse. What a great decision. The hospitality was extended as soon as we entered the restaurant and it only got better as the evening progress. The food was excellent. The service great. I couldn't have found a better place to celebrate. I will definelty be returning. ( This was restaurant week and the menu has variety of great selections. Normally some restaurants are limited and don't offer great selections but Jakes didn't cut any corners). My suggestion is if you have never gone and are hesitant don't be you will not be disappointed it is a hidden gem.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Jake's SteakhouseTropsDined on 4/26/2014The food was great. Our server was very friendly. The only negative thing about the place is how long it took before having our food served to us. It was about a half hour or more & the restaurant wasn't even that busy. Other than that, it was a very cozy place.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- First Time VisitSteveDined on 3/29/2014This was our first time to Jake's and I was pleasantly surprised. Even my wife , who was only going becasue I wanted to eat steak, enjoyed her meal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OverpricedIzabelaDined on 3/29/2014The food is ok, however not worth the price. Our T-bone was so and so. Sea bass special had more cheese and cream sauce than fish. Service was nice as well as decor, however this does not justify the high prices. I heard they have prefix menu on weekdays. If you want to try Jake's I would strongly recommend to try it on a weekday.Special Features:
- best food on long islandjudgefederDined on 3/28/2014Mussels- to die for, rock shrimp- not over fried. Tasty tangy delicious, the ribs? The best perfectly cured and seasoned. A littly spicy and the meat was so soft the fat was not detectable just delcious. They serve chimay blue cap which is my favorite beer of all time. For dinner the lobster tail was so tasy and fresh and the filet mignon? Cooked to absolute deliciIve been to hundreds of restaurants and im saying right now i challenge anyone to ever have a better meal. I had to ask for the chef and chef beberman came out and he was gracious enough to give me and my bud a few minutes of his time. What a meal!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- My new place for steakFrankieboyDined on 3/27/2014A friend of mine is a regular at the Bronx outpost of this restaurant. She raves about the place and it has become her go to place for a good meal out. My wife and I decided to try it and we were not disappointed. Everything from the cocktails to the desert and coffee were just about perfect. We both had the filet mignon steak. My wife had it "Jake style" (melted blue cheese and onion rings on top with a port wine reduction sauce). While she wasn't disappointed with it, she also said she probably wouldn't bother the next time. My Beef Barley Soup and my wife's mussels were both excellent. We ordered sweet potato fries and mushrooms as sides and enjoyed both. Our deserts, a brownie sundae and creme brule were very good and so was the coffee.Special Features:
- We go often...ReviewDined on 3/22/2014We frequent Jakes, and are never disappointed in the service or quality of food. Three of us ordered the Chilean Sea Bass, (in a steakhouse?) and it was fabulous. We almost always do our steaks "Jake's style". Follow up with an Irish coffee.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
