We opened the place up for Sunday brunch. Good variety of food selection, good desserts, good drinks, all tasted good! Good service too...all thinks up! We’d go back.

Friendly service. Excellent food. A bit pricey, though, given its in Manayunk.

It has been several years since we’ve been to this gem in Manayunk. What a treat. We definitely will be back.

What a fun relaxing night with great food and wine. It was a lovely evening so the doors/windows were open so we could be part of the Manayunk scene. We shared the mussels, crab cake, meatballs, parmesan fries and brussel sprouts. Not a loser in the bunch. The ice cream taco was shared and while the raspberry sauce was not quite up to my cousins standards it was mighty tasty.

What an awesome place! Those familiar with Manayunk will certainly already know this, they've been there for over 30 years as we found out from the hostess. Decided to do dinner here before a concert at the Mann recently. SUPER nice people on staff from top to bottom. Great wine bar and the beer selection is very good too. Without going through everything we ordered, the food was amazing. The crab cakes were especially awesome - wife says (and I agree) the best we've ever tasted. Can't wait to go back.

The restaurant staff were very accommodating, and the meal was delicious! We brought our own wine, but we had to pay a $15 corkage fee. Besides that, the food was very affordable.

It would be great if there were more vegan options. Food was good, but pricey.

Consistently good in all areas. The open windows brought the outside in without being on the street.
This restaurant has been a "10" since inception.

Food was excellent, service could have been better. Server was not attentive and questioned if we were staying, forgot our drink order and asked if we were going to order food when we clearly were there for dinner.

One of several visits over the year to this restaurant. This evening, there were several serious culinary lapses. My octopus salad had chunks of octopus that were literally in edible. Either they were raw or possibly chunks of rubber substituting for octopus but you could barely chew them. One in our party got the spicy meatballs which I felt were in edible because they were so spicy. The beet salad was delicious and the highlight Was the ice cream assortment for dessert. If it had not been a business dinner I would definitely have sent the octopus back. The restaurant was nearly empty on a Wednesday night, and our service was excellent

Sunday Brunch is a MUST!!!! Delicious food, excellent service and, of course, bottomless mimosas! Also stay for the live music, beautiful voice, soulful acoustic sound, perfect vibe for a Sunday afternoon. A MUST!

Not what I'd expect from Jake's and Cooper's having been many many many times in thirty odd years. Grilled octopus was quite good, but the Crab Cakes and Short Rib (shared with my GF) were super small portions, lukewarm on a not busy night, and the Crab Cake exterior was coagulated in a weird gluey texture. The vegetable puree was watery and underwhelming, and both dishes were under seasoned.
