Went to dinner with my best friend when she came into town. We shared the short rib pizza, a side of spinach, and the everything bread. All our food was delicious. In addition, the waitstaff was very knowledgeable. They helped us make wine selections not only at dinner, but also afterward when we both decided to purchase bottles. Overall a great experience.

Sorry Jake's, but this was horrible. Our drinks took 45 mins, you forgot our appetizers, our server was MIA, the table next to us was so loud and close to us we wanted to leave immediately. No discount was offered and an automatic 18% gratuity was added. Normally we'd have left more, but 18% was way too much for the service we received. It was Sat. night, so we stuck it out and fortunately the food that came was very good. Fellow Open Tablers, hard PASS on Jake's.

Crab cakes & hanger steak delicious. Shrimp dumplings tasty but tiny. Service was not great.
If you’re going to include service fee on the check you verbally inform the customer so they don’t accidentally tip on the whole. Be transparent and up front!! And have better service if you’re going to charge for it!!!

This restaurant had great wine and food and was so nice! Definitely a good place- smaller portions for a decent amount of money but the ambiance was great and we had a great night out! Our server was lovely as well.

My boyfriend and I had a great time at Jake and Coopers. We wanted to give a special shout out to our server, Michael, and the employee who was working the brick oven/making the cheeseboard. I cannot speak high enough about the level of service we received. It was our first time here and the staff from the host, bartender who passed us, and again our server were so incredibly nice and fun.

The food was absolutely amazing. We ordered the cheese board, everything bread, short rib, and calves liver. I had the short rib and it was cooked perfectly. I also really enjoyed the potatoes that came with it. There was so much flavor in everything.

Another special item we really enjoyed was the mango habanero whiskey sour. I don't typically like spicy drinks but this one had just enough of a bite without it being overbearing.

10/10 recommendation.

very pleased. food took a while to be delivered considering it wasn't very crowded. food came out warm, not hot. the delicious everything bread should have been soft and hot out of the oven but clearly it had been sitting for a while before being served. Overall good experience, I'd go back.

Love this restaurant, and I know places are having a difficult time under the circumstances. We ordered 2 apps and their everything bread and itwas forgotten until we mentioned it. Should have come or first. I ordered the gnocchi and small dish of 9 pieces of pasta for 18.00 is obscene.

We always enjoy the great food, beverages, and services we get when going to one of our favorite spots in Manayunk! There are some really great menu choices and we love the ambience of sitting outside and enjoying the early evenings. It is getting about time though that the portable heaters and such should be put in place as it got pretty chilly last evening and we had to retreat to the inside table to finish of our picking at the delicious cheese board which we washed down with our equally wonderful Vermentino and Verdicchio bone dry white wines! The bartender, I believe her name is Chloe, is a real pleasure and always goes out of her way to make us feel at home and like regulars. All and all one of the most consistent and pleasant dining experiences we have and always look forward to returning to.

We had a wonderful meal! Megan, our server. Was attentive, prompt and her suggestions were perfect. The Cherry Blossom and the Mango Whiskey Sour were delicious start to the evening-very well balanced cocktails. We shared an octopus salad, the tasty mushroom soup and a truly magnificent short rib entree.
This restaurant never disappoints!

Haven’t been to Jake’s for a long time. I was excited about the wine bar, but shocked to see wine selections poor by the glass. Love a good cab or Pinot noir, but I didn’t care for either by the glass. Please have choices for your customers. Other than than, service was great and experience was very nice.
Thank you

This is a standby for a quiet dinners with old friends. The wide, varied, and fairly priced wine list is the greatest strength of this place. The menu includes mostly standards, along with a scattering of less familiar dishes, and the kitchen seems to handle them well.

On Main St in Manayunk this is a great place to eat and drink. We had specialty cocktails and their special bread is awesome! The chicken cobb salad was huge and tasty and my hangar steak was cooked perfectly to medium and was yummy!

I used to live in Manayunk and frequent this place. Don't think I've ever had a bad experience here. It's alway been very enjoyable. I have since moved, so it's been a long time since I was last here until last night, when I took my friend out for her birthday who lives nearby. There was somewhere else we originally wanted to go but they were closed for vacation so this was choice #2. Like I said it's been a while so I hoped it was still good. I have always secretly wondered when this place would start going downhill. Restaurants in this area tend to do great at first then eventually break your heart.

Not this place, they're still kicking butt! The everything bread was fantastic. The cheese place was devoured. The cobb salad had us wondering if we should order more to go for lunch the next day. Pizzas were hot and fresh from the brick oven and quite tasty. The service was friendly, attentive and everything came out in a timely fashion. They also had a band on the side alley playing with these pretty, whimsical lighting and picnic benches. It could get a little loud at times but overall it was a nice, ambient experience. Highly recommended!

First, this was not an easy time because of the new Philly shift with mask mandates and fairly new service staff. But the staff was kind, approachable and clearly doing their best.
The hanger steak and salads were great. It was clear that the business is so connected to the community as folks would walk up to chat with the service team.
They have added the tip into the cost of the meal, so that is nice to see that they are focused on staff recruitment.

This is a Manyunk institution ; very good food, just remember that you are dining in a whole new serving environment and have a glass of wine and relax.

Our waitress Ashley was very attentive and welcoming. Jake’s double burgers delicious as usual and gazpacho was excellent but $60 for lunch (for two)was a little steep (no drinks) for just a drop in lunch.

Had a great experience at Jake and Cooper’s. Everything we ordered was delicious - the drinks, shrimp dumplings, margherita pizza, and sweet corn ravioli were fantastic. The hostess was very kind and our server was attentive and helpful. If you plan to dine indoors make sure to bring your vaccination card. Will definitely be coming back!
