  • "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!"

  • "Went to Jake's twice last week. Once at the bar and once at a table. Both experiences were great. Food and service was top notch. Also, they just added lobster rolls at the bar that are spectacular. Great move."

  • "We had an amazing T-bone steak dinner. We requested our steaks cooked "Medium' and they arrived perfect!!! The sides were delish and the creme brulee was to die for!!! We will definitely return!"

  • "The always friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and attentive waitstaff compliment an impressive menu highlighted by always-perfect beef selections. As a New Yorker for nearly seven decades, who travels the world in search of excellent meals, my sincere recommendation is that Jake's is not to be missed."

  • "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."

  • "With a 24 rating, how disappointing. Meats were tasteless and overcooked, not worth sending back for a redo. I suppose for those who don't know better, this would do for a steakhouse in the Bronx"

  • "I live in the area and have always liked Jake's. Took a friend there since she's recently gotten her Masters, and although I do not eat red meat, she does, and I still managed to enjoy the other fares on the menu. Really nice spot! Worth the price."

  • "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."

  • "My husband and I have just recently decided to set out and try the NYC steakhouse scene. A few weeks ago we had started with Old Homestead and while the food was really good, I much prefer the atmosphere of Jake's. When paying that much for dinner it is nice to have a quiet, relaxing scene (not feel like you are in Applebee's in Times Square). We started with the crab cake, which was perfect-most crab cakes I have had before are mostly stuffing and not much crab-not this one We both then enjoyed the surf and turf-steaks were cooked perfectly and the lobster was delicious. We finished with the creme brulee which was very tasty. We live in the Bronx so it's nice to have a place so close to home to enjoy a nice dinner. Would definitely go back"

  • "We had a terrific meal at Jake's. There were people without reservations waiting to be seated when we arrived. We were seated right away with our Open Table reservation. Our server came to our table right away to take our drink order and describe the nights specials. We each ordered the Filet Mignon. Both steaks were very tender and delicious. We also shared a bottle of wine and it was quite good and reasonably priced. Our server was attentive without being obtrusive. Fortunately we saved room to share a delicious desert. We look forward to our next meal at Jake's."

  • "I've been here many times-- the steaks are great! Finding a parking space can present a problem at times. I was a little disappointed on this most recent visit for lunch when the medium-rare burger I ordered was presented to me close to well-done."

  • "Everything about the dinner was superb! All three dishes were indescribably delicious and cooked to perfection. Thank goodness the portions were healthy because I had a delectable meal yesterday too. We were so satiated that we could not make room for desserts so I guess we will just have to go back for the desserts only!!Our resident foodie almost ate her entire T-Bone steak. I had Jakes's Filet Mignon and I am ready to go back for more...The birthday Lady had a surf and turf and could not be happier. Must not pass up the mac and cheese and it re-heats well too. Can't wait to go back!!!! It was a delightful dining experience. Thank you."

    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "After about 20 minutes of looking at the menu, we we're tired of waiting for the waiter to come take our order. We had to call her over and ask her to take our order. The food took literally 1 hour to get to the table and the half of the food was room temperature when it arrived at the table. We went for a birthday, so we asked for the waiter to do the typical restaurant desert w/candle thing. We eventually got a 3" diameter by 1.5" high chocolate cake with a candle, which the birthday boy didn't like because he doesn't like chocolate. When we got our bill, they charged us $9 for the cake & candle, that again the birthday boy didn't like. If they were going to charge us, you should ask exactly what he wants! Overall, terrible experience."

  • "This is one of the best steakhouses that I have been to. My date and I ordered the Porterhouse for Two, delicious, with a lot to bring home. The Clams Oregenato appetizer was possibly my favorite part of the meal, prepared perfectly. The Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Creamed Spinach were also wonderful. Very delighted about how good the sides were, because I have noticed most great steakhouses do not always have the best sides just focusing on the meat. It is definitely going to be an expensive dinner but 100% worth it for the food and service. Would be perfect if the entree actually came with sides rather then having to add on. $150 bill for 2 glasses of wine, 1 app., Porterhouse for Two, two sides, and 1 dessert ."

The personnel in the restaurant are all friendly and give great service.It is also a great restaurant if you are tagging along and don't neccisarily like stake. They have plenty of other dishes that are just as delicious. I would recommend the Chicken Leno which is unique and delicious. Their shell stieak and lamb are also quite outstanding."

  • "We enjoyed Jake's last Friday night which also happened to be the night of the Manhattan / Iona game. The place was packed with fans trying to get a bite before the game. Our dinner and service was outstanding. Even though the place was packed, nothing suffered. The staff remained attentive and the food came out PERFECT. Can't wait to return."

  • "Year after year you get the same at Jakes in the Bronx... And that's not a negative! My girlfriend and I always get the Porterhouse for two which is consistently phenomenal. The wine list is great and the tap beer choices are excellent. We always seem to get seated on the 3rd floor which overlooks Van Cortlandt Park. The only downside we ever encounter there is that the atmosphere is not very conducive for a quiet, romantic dinner. There are usually raucous groups there that can be somewhat annoying. Also, The tables by the windows in the winter are very drafty and when the heat comes on it can get a bit uncomfortable. Still, overall, this is my favorite steak house and a "once a month" stop for me."

  • "We ordered a Porterhouse, New York Strip, and a few Filets with several sides. The steaks were all fantastic and all of the food was cooked perfectly - the spinach was outstanding. Wine recommendations were great. It is a little pricey but the atmosphere is great for catching up with friends or a night out. The service was spot on - not rushed or overbearing at all. A definite must in the Bronx!"
