The bathroom had a baby changing table In the ladies room but not one of the men’s room. What happens if your dad is taking his child to the bathroom to get changed? He hast to do it on the floor?

I’ve been to Jake’s and Cooper’s on multiple occasions and usually have an excellent experience in regards to food and service. However, I was disappointed this time with service > food. When we inquired about not including a specific cheese on our cheese plate due to an allergy in our party, we were told we could not make substitutions. However, we were not asking for a substitution. We wanted to make sure our friend was not exposed to an allergen. You can imagine our amazement when said cheese was on the plate. Secondly, we ordered desert and asked for a candle to be added to celebrate a special occasion. It was forgotten. Lastly, gratuity was automatically added which I thought was a bit offensive. I did not feel heard, respected or valued during this encounter.

Wonderful dinner with my wife and daughter!! So happy we finally returned after these crazy times and was reminded how terrific this long standing treasure is.

Our meal was perfect and the service was as well. We had a table right inside at the open window and enjoyed the jazz music while still being able to converse. We look forward to returning soon and often.

Arriving we were greeted by a very friendly host who immediately showed us to our seats outside which were clean and ready for guests. Soon after our waitress greeted us with waters and asked if we wanted anything else to drink. Over all, great first impressions. However, this impression changed once ordering. I ordered the octopus salad after asking the waitress a question regarding how it is cooked. She raves about how another guest shared it was cooked to perfection. I was excited to hear this review and moved forward with this light dinner option. Our meal was delivered by a food runner, and our server refilled our waters. She didn’t return until the “end of the meal.” Had she, I would have expressed that my octopus was not intact cooked to perfection. I ate the three fingerling potatoes, capers, and, and arugula that was one the plate. The dish was really well presented visually. However, I pushed the rubbery undercooked octopus to one side of the plate. When our waitress finally returned to see if we wanted to order dessert or get the check, she said “I guess you didn’t like the octopus.” I shared that I did not. It appeared as if she did not follow up with anyone else working in the restaurant and brought us our check. In addition to our food charges we also had a gratuity charge of 18% for two people at a table. This was a little surprising to see one bill. Overall, nice staff and ambiance, but I won’t be getting the octopus salad again in the future. I do wish that she had checked in with us during our meal so that my order could have been fixed or I could have ordered something else to eat while my party was eating. I have had some amazing experiences here in the past with the food, this may have been an off day ?

The food was cooked well, but largely flavorless. Reminiscent of good wedding cuisine. Wine was ok, but not stellar given the price and focus. Wait staff clearly wanted to be elsewhere doing something else. The real problem was the price - way too expensive for what it was and the attention given to it. There are way too many places in Philadelphia that are fabulous at the same price point. Definitely not planning to go back.

food was awesome, not too rushed, brought MORE than enough toast pieces for the cheese board without us asking which made me happy(i hate when places only give 2 pieces for an entire board… makes no sense to me) great waiter, crab cakes and steak were cooked perfectly, I’ve been a few times before and it’s always been good but this time everything was great. 5 stars for sure :)

Coopers remains a go to place for a light dinner with the 1/2 carafe wine special. We ate indoors (decent social distancing). The strawberry spinach salad and portobello pizza hit the spot. Our server did a fine job.

Came for drinks with a friend. The host was super nice when I came in. Our waiter was AWESOME! Overall, everyone working there was super friendly which always makes the vibe better! The drinks were good as well. Started with a cocktail (could taste the alcohol in it so that’s always a good sign!!!) and then had a glass of the cab. We ordered the Margherita pizza to share...would not recommend. It was basically $14 for bread with barely any sauce, a little cheese, and 6 basil leaves and zero flavor. You’re probably thinking “Well, that’s a Margherita pizza” which yes, but I’ve had my fair share of Margherita pizzas and this one would be at the bottom of that list. Haha maybe if it wasn’t $14 I would be less offended by it. We only ordered it because of the mandate in Philly where if you order alcohol you have to get a meal too. I would say the decor was a little lack luster but if you don’t really mind that, it’s a solid place for drinks and to catch up with a friend! 8.5/10 would recommend!

Second time going to Jake and Cooper’s and it hasn’t disappointed yet. Our guess is that they cook almost everything with their brick oven to add their signature char. Burger was phenomenal, octopus salad was delicious (they didn’t skimp on the octopus either) and we can’t say enough about the “everything seasoned” bread! Oh and can’t forget their namesake, the wine: the “cheap” wine special they offered is just alright but once you step up to the $12.50 a glass section, it really hits the spot.

We made reservations last minute to celebrate some good news! When we arrived the restaurant was pretty empty, which was nice because we were able to sit and have a drink before ordering dinner. Out of no where the restaurant became busy, and the servers did a great job checking in on everyone and making sure they were doing okay. The cocktails were Out of this world! And our food was even better.

Can’t wait to stop back down again !
