The food was soo good! This restaurant blew all of our previous Valentine's day dinners out of the water. The wine was fantastic as well, which is always a plus. Furthermore, the servers and staff at the restaurant were so friendly and helpful! We will definitely be back.

Good pizza. We were the only people sitting outside because of covid and it felt like our server kept forgetting about us (and it was freezing out!) But would return when not a pandemic for the full experience.

We came here after the the food was disappointing at Somo down the street and we are happy we did! Can’t wait to come back, food and drinks were amazing and service was great. The margarita pizza was delicious and the butternut squash pasta was fantastic. Jake’s and Cooper’s saved date night 🙏🏻

Excellent food but no seasoning. I had the crab cakes. Lots of crab, very fresh,but bland. Needed a cocktail sauce or an aioli or something. However, the
Lemon curd dessert was divine!

Decor is dated & needs a refresh.

I usually love this place but my entree was the salmon and it was so burnt at the bottom. I did not like it at all. The drinks were amazing and the service was awesome too. A bit expensive but most places in Manayunk are expensive.

Enjoyed a fabulous dinner last Saturday night. We ate indoors due to the weather and I was pleasantly surprised to see that Jake's is following appropriate social distancing protocols - tables were spread out and everyone wore a mask when moving around the restaurant. Jake's is one of our favorites and the food did not disappoint. We had the cheeseboard appetizer, crab cakes and short ribs. All of our servers were very friendly and attentive. We will be back soon!

Jake's and Coopers is a must-visit restaurant in Manayunk, especially if you're looking for something closer to fine dining. The food is spectacular, the service is friendly, informative, and fast, and the ambience is welcoming and energetic. We sat outside on a perfect Fall evening and had a wonderful meal. PLUS, they have Prosecco on draft so that's incredible in my book! Will definitely be back!

In these times, I hate to say anything negative about restaurants trying to survive, but there were some things that about this experience that fell short. We ordered our usual favorite tuna tartare appetizer which wasn't up to the usual standard, didn't seem as fresh and no longer comes with chips as an accompaniment (we were told that this is due to COVID and the shortage of kitchen staff available to prepare dishes). We had to send back one of the two personal pizzas because it came out burnt, but then had to wait while it was prepared again. Lastly, the gratuity was added for a party of two on top of the tax, which seemed excessive. We have gone to Jack and Coopers many times before COVID, and would like to extend the benefit of the doubt for this less than perfect experience, so we will go back again and give them another try.

Noise level is out of control when one has no choice due to outside dinning.
I was impressed with the level of class , such as allowing a real glass when I’m drinking wine. Well done! I will be back and enjoy inside dining when allowed.

We had a wonderful meal and the service was perfect! Our primary waiter was pleasant and attentive. Evan the other waiters who filled our water glasses were very pleasant. We had to sit outside due to Covid restrictions, but the table was nicely placed in the shade. The drink pours were generous, the shrimp dumplings, Parmesan fries, pizza, salad and gnocchi were all prepared beautifully, and portions were also generous. We had a terrific time, and will definitely return!

We went for Valentine’s Day which is always a tough night to dine out. The appetizers came quickly and were delicious. We got the beets and cauliflower. The entrees took a very long time to arrive but were also very good. We got the salmon and the crab cakes. This is always a go to place for us- we especially love their gourmet pizzas.

Receptionist and wait staff were excellent. Appetizers (shrimp, butternut squash crab bisque and everything bread) were excellent. Entrees (branzino and ribeye steak) were good). Branzino still had a lot of bones in it and Ribeye was thinner than expected. Wine selection not as good as expected.

All in all, a very nice place but given cost, entrees and wine could have been better.

One of our favorite dates! We went for our anniversary. They were expecting us when we got there, had the best table in the house, EXCELLENT and PATIENT service!
The food was spectacular!
This is my favorite spot in Philly to go out to. The best food, the best wines, the best people, all for such a reasonable price.

GO!
