Jake's - Palm Springs
VOTED TOP 100 OUTDOOR DINING RESTAURANT IN USA BY OPEN TABLE USERS!
Friends arriving. Wonderful lunch
Great as always!!...and dog friendly!!
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!
Remains one of the best!
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.
We like our food and waitress, Lorena is attentive to our request. However, the waiting time for our main meal is longer than we are expecting.
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.
Fabulous food - they have so many things on their food and bedgeridge list that other places don't - I had Eggs in Purgatory and a Gold Run - and super fabulous service
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!!
One of my favorite Palm Springs restaurants. Great food and great service.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Jakes. Service was perfect and our food was really good. We will be coming back for Jakes. The entire experience was great
Good food. Made with creativity and lots of flavors. Highly recommend.
I like Jake's. It's always good and easy to get into.
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!)
Our server Jerald, was excellent. He was attentive but not overbearing. He knew the menu very well and was able to make good recommendations. The chairs have no back support and are not comfortable.
This is the best restaurant in Palm Springs. The friendliest service and the best food. The atmosphere is so pretty! We enjoyed a nice lunch, I’m sure dinner is just as great! Make reservations!!
Jake’s is consistently the best lunch spot in Palm Springs.
Wonderful service and beautiful space. Menu was lovely and fresh. Plenty of selection and very good quality. A very enjoyable experience.
Sunday brunch was almost inedible. Even the three eggs over medium were not good. Chicken apple sausage pretty bad. Crowded and noisy. Too many other good places. Sorry.
We have been to Jake’s many times for brunch and we always so happy with everything from service, food and atmosphere. We brought guests this visit with a large dog and everyone was extremely accommodating and we had a wonderful visit.
Excellent evening all around. Good food, good service, good location. Would go again for sure
Solid food and service, fun location right DT.
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!
Great service and very nice meal. And great atmosphere for lunch
Food was very good. Excellent me4nuy. Service from Allan was excellent. Restaurant was a hit. Very noisy but that is to be expected. Just prepare for it.
From the moment we arrived we felt very welcomed and the host and the servers were all attentive and very accommodating. Beautiful atmosphere and delicious fresh food. I will be back.
Best place in town!!!
Great food-great mood...
Ashley’s the best
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.
Mike was an especially attentive server. He took great care of us!
Beautiful evening with nice people running Jakes. Been there many times and will return.
I ordered the Cioppino and the broth was good, but there was barely any seafood in it. There were just some shreds of fish and two clam shells with no clams and the soft shell on top
One of our favorites
Outstanding soft shell crab sandwich. Patio is wonderful.
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!
Perfect Food. Perfect service. Ask for Jerry, Lola or Ashley. They will make your experience even better 💛💜
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.
The meatloaf was not up to par. I’ve had dinner at your place many times before and I thought the food was not was good.
