Jake's - Palm Springs
VOTED TOP 100 OUTDOOR DINING RESTAURANT IN USA BY OPEN TABLE USERS!
We love everything about this restaurant!
The best dining experience of our stay in Palm Springs. We stay in the area every year and regret not trying Jakes sooner. The best restaurant in Uptown/Design District by far. Excellent service with a spirit of generosity offering: chef's amuse bouche, bread for the table and a delightful complimentary dessert morsel. Each dish we ordered was prepared beautifully and was delicious. Thanks Jakes! From your friends in Calgary, Alberta.
Jakes is hard to beat. There are plenty of 4.4-4.8 star places to go, but Jakes serves wonderful food with great, attentive service. The food is consistently excellent. Great bar. Great drinks. Great deserts.
Jake’s was recommended to us, but we didn’t have any real detail in advance. We were greeted warmly, and, because it was dripping/raining in on the patio, we were given an indoor table quickly. Wait staff was casual, knowledgeable, amazingly coordinated and efficient, lovely to converse with, but moved rapidly. Menu and food were varied and ever so interesting. Loved almost everything we tried with the ravioli being the table favorite. Do not pass on their cake for dessert. When we return to PS, we will go back to Jake’s, first thing!
Wrong order brought to our table. Three people later it was finally fixed. Unfortunately it took more than 10 minutes to fix so other party’s food was cold (an egg dish). Jake’s is a typical tourist location in Palm Sorings. Being locals, we know of much nicer places so we will not be back.
Try not to eat inside.
It look like it was lovely outside, but inside was noisier and tables are much too close together
The food was good, the portions were large and the deserts were extraordinary.
Jake's is charming! The little patio is so intimate and cozy, it would be a great spot for a romantic dinner. Our waiter (did not get his name) was attentive but not intrusive. We ordered the coconut shrimp appetizer special, as well as the special filet mignon for one of us and the menu NY strip. All of the food was perfectly cooked and seasoned. It was a sentimental night as our Uncle Jake just died and we could not attend the service in NY. We celebrated him instead at Jake's, each having a Manhattan to toast him. He would have loved it!
We were seated promptly and staff was very pleasant. We did have to wait a long time for the entree to come out but it was worth the wait. Our entrees did not disappoint. Always a good place to have a great meal. We ended up eating inside due to bad weather which is unusual for the desert.
As usual the food and ambience was very good...we love Jakes! Rarely do we get bad service but today was the day...I guess you can’t be perfect all the time...we will definitely be back!
Excellent dinner last night, a get-together with a friend we hadn't seen in a long while. Ashley, our server was delightful, the bus staff was very attentive and we had the BEST ciopinno main course we can remember. Lots of fish and shellfish...delicious. Finished with their amazing gluten-free carrot cake, which was such a treat to have! Thanks Jakes!
Excellent service and food. We did not feel like we were being rushed or pushed to leave, unlike some Palm Springs venues.
Great spot in downtown Palm Springs. Beautiful outdoor patio seating, interesting menu. Everything was tasty- try the European herbal iced tea if you're not having a cocktail.
Can't miss with Jake's. One of the best restaurants in Palm Springs.
They are very creative in their menu both food and drink.
This is a great little spot with fantastic cakes for dessert!
I had a reservation for 7:30, we had to wait almost an hour. I feel that we should have been compensated for that, perhaps complementary drinks or something along those lines.
The food and drinks were very good.
Always great food and great service!!!
Fabulous place for a meal.
We love Jakes! Come to the desert yearly and always need to have lunch or dinner as part of our plans.
Too long of a wait for reservations.
The food, location and staff were exceptional. The owner was busy working alongside the staff, we had a chance to have a wonderful conversation with him. Would absolutely return to this restaurant. Great way to begin our Palm Springs trip.
I love this place except the loud music -- its not energetic - its loud!
Our waiter said that it's hard to hear people when you take orders
This place is San tropez -- the riviera -- it needs chic music, and background
The food was quite good with fresh ingredients. We were there for lunch, so only ordered sandwiches, but they were very tasty. The place was crowded, which made it rather loud. Our meals were served promptly, but we waited almost 15 minutes to pay the check.
Always a wonderful experience at Jakes
Food delicious and service great
Ate at Jake’s for lunch btw films at the Palm Springs Film Fest. Amazing food, delightful staff and professional service. 10/10
Incredible as always , we have been here many times as it is one of our favorite restaurants in Palm Springs.
Love Jake's, the food is always delicious!!! One of our favorite place to go and take guests!!! The outdoor patio is lovely, and takes the chill off with great heat lamps!!! I highly recommend it, you will not be disappointed!!!!
Love Jake’s. The food is great. The ambience is casual, but not sloppy. Service is excellent. Our only complaint is that tables are crowded together uncomfortably outside.
Last night in Palm Springs and Jake's was the best food we had on the trip. Great service, fantastic inventive cooking, easy to maneuver wine list and the most amazing day esserts.
Cake slices were stale and we were so bummed since that’s the whole reason we went there! Had been dreaming about that cake since last January!
Had great meal. Service was amazing.
Always a reliable choice.
New Year’s Day. We had confirmed indoor dining, but the table wasn’t ready and since there is NO place to wait, we had to sit outside on the patio. It turned out to be ok, but we sat right in front of the speaker and found conversation was difficult The man seating us had a take it or leave it attitude, not at all like the fine service we had come to expect. I was disappointed as we had guests with us.
one of the best dining experiences in palm springs...
Fabulous as always! My go-to lunch spot in Palm Springs - excellent food and service as always.
Wow -- great New Years Eve dinner w/friends. Such a busy evening, yet the 6 of us enjoyed excellent service and attention, along with one of the best osso buco dishes in memory. That and the rack of lamb was what our table indulged in. With a champagne toast at midnight, the evening was a great way to start the New Year.
Outdoor gate left open during freezing cold evening and not enough heat lamps. Wind tunnel effect. Had to wait 15 minutes In the cold to be seated after the time of our reservation. Music was loud and abrasive. Food was good.
Ordered 4 starters [wedge salad, beet salad, lobster bisque and lobster tempura for two]. Waitress told us we couldn't have all the starters at the same time because the table was too small. Wrong, table could accommodate all 4 dishes. Waitress did not place order correctly, so we didn't get both salads at the same time [recd. 1 salad with the lobster bisque]. Soup wasn't warm and had only 2 tiny pieces of lobster, broth was pretty salty. Then we received the beet salad with lobster tempura for two, which tempura consisted of very little lobster with lots of breading. Overall, this place is overrated. While the resturant was busy that night, no one should have to wait over 30 minutes for 4 appetizers and then not receive salads at the same time. There are many great places to dine in Palm Springs and many new places opening up in downtown area.
