Brought a friend for dinner for her birthday. Had a wonderful meal and great time, as always. I love the understated sophistication of J&C's. Large, comfy booths, excellent service and always delicious food. My go-to place for a great meal and nice ambience!

We had a very enjoyable, leisurely brunch. The menu selections were interesting and varied. I had the crab cake Eggs Benedict, which was very good. The full bottle of champagne with juice Mimosa service was a great bargain.

We were disappointed. It was supposed to be a Tuscan specialty night and the "count" was rather full of himself. The food was also disappointing and the wine, the Tuscan specialty was good, but very expensive per glass. I could give the chef a few pointers. We have eaten in many parts of Italy and know good Italian food and this was a disappointment. Sorry to say this, but it used to be our "go to" place to eat in Manayunk, but they will have to do something to win us back. The high point was the lovely and gracious hostess, Marisol.

A friend and I had dinner here recently, on a Sunday night. The whole experience was exceptional: appetizer, wine, dinner and dessert. I had the crab cakes and they were perfect, as was the dessert of profiteroles. I dine here regularly and have never been disappointed. I find the ambience just right: elegant, understated, great lighting (especially in the bar area), roomy booths, timeless. I so wish there were more restaurants like this around!

As usual the evening at Jake's was great. Everyone enjoyed their meals (salmon, surf and turf, duck and pizza). The service was attentive. The noise level is better than just about anywhere which is very important to us.

We were there for dinner, not the wine bar. On a weekday evening other diners were sparse. The server was extremely nice but we had to chase her down to get the bill. The grilled octopus salad was delicious, and the choice of wines by the glass was unusually good. Definitely thumbs-up for the food.

The beer tasting option was very good for those of us who like beer. The white wine for the happy hour was OK, not fantastic. The pizza was disappointing. The halibut was a bit dry. They were patient with our toddler, however and those who had steak LOVED their steak. The carminiere wine offered for the steak was very good.

My partner and I went during restaurant week, so we had food from their fixed 3-course menu, each of which was paired with a beer to complement the course. There were two options for each course, so we tried both for the appetizer (a Brussels sprouts salad and sweet potato gnocchi) and the dessert (a key lime mousse with graham cracker ice cream and a fruit compote). All of those items were pretty amazing. We both had the same entree: a petite filet with a creamed corn. Even though the cook was slightly more than what I asked (I ordered medium and it was closer to medium well, or even well done), it was one of the most flavorful steaks I've had in quite some time. Also, the waitstaff was very friendly and attentive, which made the experience that much more enjoyable. We certainly plan to revisit Jake and Cooper's soon!

Great choices... Even something for a person who is mostly vegan. But, the server put a watery salad in a cardboard folding container and so the juice and oil spilled out all over my things. Might I make the suggestion of food boxes that actually have a lid? 😂😂😇🙏

The dining experience at Jake and Cooper's was a major disappointment. Although the service was friendly and cooperative, it did not make up for the disappointing food. It was hard to find an entree that please each of us (there were four) Two of the four settled for hamburgers. I had the salmon which was mediocre at best. The other diner had the crab cakes which were adequate. The octopus salad was excellent. The tuna tartar lacked taste. When the bill came, it was way overpriced for the food we had ordered. Will not go back.

My wife and I often went to Jake's 10-15 years ago but got out of the Manayunk habit since then. We went to Jake's and Cooper's Wine Bar on a whim to see how things have changed. We found a casual but well staffed restaurant with an eclectic Menü and as advertised a wide selection of wine. The oysters and a stuffed fig special were excellent, the margarita pizza only adequate and the wine diverse with some good values. We sat on a "high-top near the front of the bar and could watch the street scene of Manayunk. It was a very nice, casual evening. This new iteration of Jake's is well worth a visit
