    Great experience. Service (Kathleen) made the difference. Recommend eating upstairs. We sat in a big booth near the bar. We did made reservations only a couple days in advance and the place was packed. Great sides, Filet melted in our mouths. Go for the T-bone for two!

    Me and my husband have eaten here twice and both times had a great experience. Our watress was so sweet and attentive. We didn't have to wait long for our appetizers and meals. I am pregnant and needed my petit filet cooked well but they cooked it so perfect it didn't ruin the integrity of the steak. The homemade Mac & cheese is delightful! We can't wait to go back!

    In the wasteland called the Bronx, this restaurant stands out as a great place to go for everyday dining or an event. The steak is excellent as was the tuna and our waitress was the old-fashioned kind-attentive, efficient and very nice. Kudos to Jake for maintaining such high standards. The valet parking is a great touch.

    Everything was ok...just ok. We started w/ bruschetta and Cesar salad, followed by T-Bone steak and sides of fries and mushrooms. The only thing better than fair? The sauteed mushrooms - very good! The service was 'good' but 'fake good'. It felt forced and rehearsed...a bit strange and uncomfortable. We are frequent diners at steakhouses throughout nyc and when traveling. Sorry, but Jake's didn't measure up for us, and we have no desire to return or recommend.

    When we have a special occasion (like Birthday, Anniversary, etc), we think of Jake's. We found this wonderful restaurant when my son was running cross country events in Van Cortlandt Park. After one event, we had lunch there. We liked it so much that the server (the owner's nephew) recommended we try coming for dinner sometime. We did and this became one of our "special" restaurants, well worth the 40 minute drive! We love the casual atmosphere, the great, friendly, professional waitstaff and of course the high quality aged steaks at a bit below the "Manhattan's Finest" pricing. It has a great wine selection and an exceptional draft beer selection with a good number of local and regional craft beers (right up my alley!!!).

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/13/2013
    We made reservations at Jake's with plenty of notice, but the table they gave us was awful. In what may be a first for us in NYC, however (we're not from here originally), when we spoke up, they actually cared how we felt about it, and moved us to another one, right by the window! The staff was attentive and helpful. The steaks were very nice, up there with Manhattan steakhouses if not 100% there, although I'll say the creamed spinach was actually better than the creamed spinach I almost caused a brawl once by sending back at Sparks. The view of Van Cortlandt Park across the street was agreeable, and the atmosphere inside was laid back, but not subdued. We'll go back again, no problem.

Jake's is fit to go up against the best NY steakhouses. I have brought many of my friends there as well and they are always impressed with the quality of the food and the warm, friendly atmosphere.

    Jakes is a must visit. I had never been there but had always past by it, as I work in the area. I decided that I wanted to propose to my girlfriend at this beautiful establishment. I made the reservation and asked for a window seat overlooking the park. They obliged my request. The service was excellent. The staff was courteous and knowlegable. The food was very good. The only thing that I would say is that I asked for my filet mignon med well...its supposed to be pink in the middle but it was a little tiny overcooked. Next time I'll order medium and all will be good. I definitely recommend Jakes if you have $100-180 for two.

    There were only 7 or 8 steak choices and that is the right amount of options for me. The shell steak au poivre was one of the best I have ever eaten. The atmosphere was perfect for spending the night with two great fraternity brothers. The staff was excellent and they didn't push the extras that often go unfinished at a steakhouse. The portion sizes were just right also. I will definitely return.

Best T bone steak I've had in ages, one of my favorite steaks and often hard to find. Servers and staff are courteous and friendly whether its your first visit or one of many. A true NYC classic.
