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.

Our go to spot in Manayunk. Great for before a show at the Grape as it is down the street. Awesome food, gracious service and nice atmosphere. The only thing I would add is live guitar music in the bar. We love this place.

I love Jakes, I frequent their happy hour at the bar weekly and the service is always amazing! The dinner service for restaurant week was quite a bit different. The server knocked a full glass of wine over during our appetizer, and never replaced it until we requested a new one when our entrees arrived which was welcomed with a face of utter shock and disbelief that it was owed to us given it was her mistake. The food was decent, nothing special and it didn't wow us. Portions were small, but that's a given since it's a promotional restaurant week menu.

We had an early Easter Sunday dinner at Jake’s and Cooper’s. The restaurant wasn’t crowded and we had a prime table near the open front window. The menu is fairly large with a nice variety. I started with tuna tartare followed by calves liver. Both were excellent. The cocktails were nicely prepared with generous pours. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but the quality of the food makes it worth the cost.

We went to Jake and Coopers during Manayunk Restaurant Week and had their prix fixe menu. It was delicious, and had carefully prepared dishes that didn't seem to have been cooked in quantity for the week. Great short ribs, delicious bronzini fillet, lovely reductions of fresh peas, and a small glass mason jar of cheesecake with caramelized carrot cake topping that was amazingly tasty.

I’d recommend for the pizza and apps. We ordered the Salmon medium rare and it came out well done—dry and almost inedible. The steak was cooked correctly, but the roasted vegetables had so much salt on them we pushed them to the side.
Jake’s has been outstanding in the past and I was upset about the drop.

Possibly best (classiest) place in Manayunk. Excellent attentive service. Wine carafe was a little slow to come out but not wo apology. Ordered pizza, cheese board, veg side, wine. Cheese board could use a bit more for the price. Veg side was excellent!

Thank you for taking the time to comment on us! We appreciate your feedback! The cheese board is going to get a little bit more love in the next month or so! Thanks again!
