Great food and view. Been there a few times and the hostess always seems unfriendly and snobby. I’ve seen people walk up and wait uncomfortably for the hostess to greet them, as the hostess is busy on the phone or talking with other staff. You can easily take a moment to just say ‘Hi, I’ll be right with you’. Just acknowledge that the customer is standing in front of you. As this is the first point of contact with customers, they should hire more friendly and customer oriented hostesses. Always leaves a bad taste as you start your dining experience. Advice, greet people nicely as if you care about their day and their dining experience.
Disappointed. Food and menu choices limited on Winter menu. Food not near the quality it has been in the past.
Love the place, but they don't have my favorite wine.
Nice atmosphere, a bit noisy, but not exceptionally so. We didn't try the bar, but it was enticing. The menu is all ala carte, but the plates include nice complements so extra sides are only for the very hungry. The sea scallops were wonderful, but sparse (only three); the sea bass portion was just about right, but still on the small side. The presentations and taste were superb for both dishes. Wonderful service. Prices were on the moderately high side ($32 for sea scallops, $34 for sea bass) and the wine by the glass selection was limited but adequate.
We'd go back.
Always a must when we head to Tahoe. The brie is killer. Right on the water - beautiful views.
Both fish dishes way overcooked
Jake's is a fabulous restaurant with the best views arguably on all of Tahoe. The food has always been excellent and healthy. We are athletes and notice that we don't gain weight, despite consistently sumptuous food. We eat out weekly in the Truckee-North Tahoe area, and this is our favorite!
Enjoyed Jake's after a sail boat ride. Perfect ending to a great afternoon celebrating Birthdays! Love the view!!!
My wife ordered filet mignon and it was prepared as requested and tasted good. I ordered crab stuffed lobster and it was unedible. The chef added so much salt that you could not taste the lobster or the crab, just lots and lots of salt; it was the only thing you could taste. I ate the meal to avoid disrupting a birthday celebration dinner, but will not do that again; I'll send it back immediately. Usually Jake's food is fine, but not this time. It spoiled an otherwise nice birthday outing.
Great place. We lived it!would recommend it to friends and family.
