We live in Palm Springs. Jake's is our favorite restaurant. We eat there regularly and have always had a geat meal, wonderful service and a terific time. The last two times we have been there the music was way too loud. In the past I do not remember that the music interfered with conversation and our enjoyment. We asked three times both of the last times we were there. I do not believe that this was done.

As we get older, noise level is a new variable when deciding where to go to dinner. I think we might hesitate going again.

I wish I could give Jake’s 10 stars! The drinks, food, atmosphere and service was off the charts! Our table ordered the filet, lamb chops, scallops and the sea bass and we were all were very impressed! We also had two desserts and chocolate martinis too- all delicious! We had the please to have beautiful Lola as our server, she was fun and just a doll! A perfect dinner, thank you Jake’s!

It was a Birthday, the restaurant was packed with people from Modernism Weekend, and lots of waitstaff. I would highly recommend the front person with the reservations keep the guests from walking around the back patio as that was annoying, standing over my appetizer and main course. The one gal finally said stand over here, and everyone did. LOLA was our waitperson and she made the evening so enjoyable.

To preface, I’ll say it was a busy weekend and we had a big party.
- The food was somewhat bland - I had Chilequiles and the majority of our 8 person party felt their food mad mediocre for the price.
- They did try to accommodate our dietary restrictions, so they get credit for that. But Our server was definitely stretched thin, and the extra hands helping weren’t that attentive. As an example, I asked a bus boy for salsa that never showed up and we had to ask our server multiple times for an extra plate.
- French toast came with syrup already poured on. Just a preference thing really since most people like to control how much goes on.
- We likes their desserts and baked goods better than the Brunch.

Jakes Is consistently one of the best restaurants in Palm Springs. The staff is amazing and the food is truly spectacular. They have changing specials every night that are always wonderful. And definitely save Room for dessert because they are unrivaled in this area. I highly recommend this great spot

Excellent. Was entertaining a world renown architect (starchitect as collaquially known!) and a well known radio personality and never considered making plans anywhere else. Our dinner was perfect, all very much enjoyed their entree - sea bass, filet of beef, pad thai, steak/wedge (my go to choice when I can't decide!) and lamb. Started with calamari and crab cakes for the tables (calamari has been so good lately, been ordering it each time I'm there for the table) and shared 3 of the massive, and delicious cakes. The atmosphere, the friendly service, the food - all was very much appreciated by my guests. Thank you Jakes!!

We had an early Valentines Day dinner with friends. Dinner was excellent. The sea bass entree, steak/wedge and cioppino were the dishes we enjoyed, starting with the calamari and ending with a one the famous Jake's baked desserts (shared between us -- they're enormous and delicious!)

As always Jake’s is perfection! We love to go to Jakes because it is a true neighborhood gem. Owners Bruce & Chris are always so welcoming and the staff especially Lola & Jerry are just amazing, attentive, kind and friendly. For some reason all of us ordered the Steak Wedge charred medium and it was cooked to caramelized perfection and of course our fav the Salted Vanilla Cake which is like crack!

Had a great dinner and good service. Only problems we're the noise level and crowded dining. Restaurant is very small inside and tables very close. Had a party of six at the entrance near the bar. Every person who walked by hit our chairs. The bar area was so loud we could not hear each other. Only a few tables outside, but maybe that's where you should sit. Food worth it. Would try again.

Was entertaining 3 guests for business dinner -- couldn't have been better. Two had the pad thai and two had the seared ahi tuna special for that evening. Delicious!! There was nothing left on the plates. Followed up by sharing two of Jakes amazing desserts. Service was excellent and my guests left very impressed. Thanks Jake's for making me look good!

Jake's offers fine, innovative and tasty dishes which are deftly prepared and excellently served (on warmed plates when required) by cheery service. The indoor dining room is somewhat gloomy but that is possibly a blessing given the amount of collective wrinkles dining there (ours included). A large cake-display cabinet (featuring some very magnificent creations) takes up a lot of space indoors too. If this were moved it would free-up more serving and twirling space.

Sometimes a lot of table staff can be a boon. All you have to do is look up and someone will be there to ask if you need anything. Sometimes, though, too many staff serving in a small area don't see what's going on (maybe it's the lighting) or what their guests need. They're too involved manouevring the tight space and no one seems to direct the orchestration., But, hey, better a lovely, lively staff serving up very decent dinners (as we have here) than waiting for Godot to bring a cold plate of mediocrity. Woof woof Mr Jake.

As said in the Peanuts comic strip. "it was a dark and stormy night...", and we had earlier asked for outdoor patio seating. Not to worry! The patio's ever-ready cover kept us dry and cozy from the ample rain that sent gushes of water down Palm Canyon Drive. Jake's was packed and the buzz was friendly and inviting after we were warmly greeted. It is a highlight of our frequent visits to Palm Springs.
My wife had the best sea bass of her life, tall and melt-in-your mouth tender while I had blackened ahi over grilled greens, a tender, tasty and generous serving. We shared the endive salad with blood oranges and sunflower seeds, a bright and tart start. Our thanks, again, for making this a fun visit.
