    I had the chicken Leno, it was boring - they douse 2 chicken breasts in a tasteless cream sauce - they were not really trying hard. My daughter had lobster tail - previously frozen, they were not particularly large or tasteful. . My husband had the steak / mushroom special - he also was disappointed with his meal. Also, $3.00 for a cup of coffee, well we ordered 2 cups and they brought us a small pot, and then filled the small coffee cups half way. I commented to my husband who said they must be leaving room for cream / sugar, but the remainder of coffee in the pot was not enough to fill both cups. We have been there before, and enjoyed our meals and can live with being nickeled and dimed if the meal was worth it - it wasn't this time!!!

    Second time here, and we knew exactly what we wanted, the Porterhouse for two. Our server on our first visit (who we asked for again)recommended it. It was huge, and perfectly cooked medium rare as ordered. The filet side melted in your mouth, and the strip side was fantastic as well. We also ordered a salad that was a special, peach, arugula, prosciutto, walnuts, ect which was fantastic as well. Can't wait to return. Friendly attentive staff and valet parking.

    Went to Jake's Steakhouse with family who are big steak eaters. Their favorite haunt is Peter Lugers so that's the competition. Our waitress was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The dining area is on 3 different floors so if you have anyone who is handicapped make sure you specify first floor. The food was fantastic. The steak lovers in our group had the porterhouse for 2. They raved about the steaks and the sides. This is a great place for taking someone for a special dinner, to impress out of town family or even for a treat after a hard days work. Highly recommend it.

    We have been going to JAKES for years. It is always good but this time it was great. Steaks as good as the famouse steak houses. Miss the little garlic rolls which no longer seem to be available, maybe they will come back so watch for them.

    This is my first time going to this place and it was pretty good. Me and my date had the porterhouse for two, over 40 ounces of steak, yummy. Only thing I didn't like is that you gotta pay for your sides, I guess I am used to almost every other restaurant that gives you at least 1 side with your meal, and I didn't even know till my steak arrived that it's how it worked, but then again my waitress never asked if I wanted any sides. Oh wells, was still a good meal.

    I went to Jake's Steakhouse w/the family to celebrate my husband's 41st birthday. My family was very pleased and loved the food. The crabcake appetizer was delicious. If you live in the Bronx and have not tried Jake's, you definitely must visit them. This is my second time and I think it gets better every time. They sat us on the third floor and the ambience is great!

    We have eaten here before and it is always good, but this time it was outstanding. My husband had the spinach ravioli and said that if it had been an entree instead of an appetizer, he would have gladly made that his dinner. The steaks were great, our waitress was very attentive, and we all had a great time.

    My wife and I were looking to try something new. We made a reservation, but arrived shortly after 6pm so we really didn't need it. We were seated on the upper lever overlooking Van Cortlandt park. The server greeted us right away, and explained the specials to us. Great menu with lots of choices, but we wanted steak so my wife asked for a recommendation, and he suggested the t-bone. We ordered an appetizer to share and a wedge salad to share (which came out on two separate plates), something you will rarely see and we didn't even ask for it to be served that way. Our steaks came out perfectly med rare as ordered The meal was fantastic, no room for desert. Nice touches, great food, great service, and bonus valet parking. Highly recommend.

    Hi, we were not happy with our meal service, it was our wedding anniversary, but nobody mentioned that, we sat at the bar and had a pint of IPA ale, and 1 glass of chardonnay, which came to $18.00, which we thought was expensive, when you dont get a receipt. when we went to our table we had a bottle of wine with our starters, and bread and ordered another for our main course, which never arrived untill our dinner was finished, the waitress, said "that they could not find that botlle in the celler"so we had a meal with no wine/drink. awfull. The garlic mash was so watered down, that another table long side us were complainging also, I would not return here for another meal, it was also so crowded and noisy, it was unbearble.

    This was our first time dining at Jake's in the Bronx. Our overall experience Saturday night was fantastic! The food, service and ambience was outstanding. I live in the Northeast Bronx and always travel downtown to dine at a steakhouse. No more Manhattan for me when Jake's is practically in my backyard and was by far better than any other steakhouse that I've recently gone to. Great job Jake's....can't wait to go back!

    I have been to Jakes many times and love the food. This time I was disappointed with the Porter house steak which was totally bland. I had to use the steak sauce which I have never done in the past. The soft shell crab appetizer was phenomenal, the creamed spinach and garlic mashed potato were very good as well. The servers were attentive and friendly. Overall it is a good place to dine.

    I was celebrating my birthday with a friend. No I did not inform the restaurant. Do not want the fan fair. The food was very good. I had the surf and turf which both the steak and lobster were cooked to perfection. The sweet potatoes fries were also worthy. The service was not great. The waitress waited too long to take our orders. Even though we were in conversation it was way too long. All in all it was a good place to dine after a great Broadway show of "Kinky Boots". I would come again. The only draw back is the multiple dwelling and no elevator.

    I have been here numberous of times. I have never been disappointed with the food. Dinner makes you want to come back for more. I usually don't order dessert but this time I did and was very disappointed with the Apple Strudel. Will this prevent me from going back, heck no I just won't order that particular dessert again. I would have rated the restaurant as outstanding except for the disappointing dessert.

    2nd time at the restaurant. 1st time was for lunch, great! 2nd time was for Sat. nite dinner, great again. Would recommend if you want to go to a restaurant to feel comfortable, have great service, and enjoy excellent food. Steak was comparable to Ruth Cris and better than Del Frisco's. Prices are comparable as well, but worth it.
