First time at Jake's. There for Fathers day and it was one of the best dining experiences we have in some time. Food great, Service great!!!
Great food, the best Bloody Mary, and a very nice setting. Beware the cakes...
This was our fourth time for brunch at Jake’s and it was delicious.
They have several Bloody Marys to choose from. I had a Clamato Bloody Mary, and it was great.
I had a seared ahi salad, which was also excellent. The New York blueberry coffee cake is the best I’ve ever had. The service was good and waiters very attentive.
No complaints at all. Would go more often if it wasn’t so far from where I live,
We went for a Father's Day Brunch because they had a great verity of bloody mary's to choose from. The food was excellent, the service was quick and the ambiance was great. I had made a reservation to sit inside because of the heat but after seeing the patio it was very inviting and would have loved to sit out there as well. I will definitely go back.
As always it’s the best. Service is always outstanding and fun. Food is delicious! Love love love !
Great food! very nice servers and good cocktails. We liked it very much!
Typical great service and consistent food.
Absolutely one of the best restaurants in Palm Springs. Consistently great food. Have never had a bad meal there. Their desserts are to die for
Food was very good and the staff so friendly. Bacon delicious and the steak and egg sandwich deelish. At first I thought the music would be too loud but later forgot about it. Deserts also very good.
This is one of the best overall restaurants in Palm Springs. The small courtyard is a great atmosphere, the bar is generous, the menu has options for everyone - but wait for the specials which are nearly always tempting, and leave room for the best cakes in the city!
Perfect PS place to meet friends in an intimate outdoor courtyard or people watching cafe table on Palm Canyon Drive. Every time the food is spot on, never a disappointment with the daily specials or off the main menu. Discrete service is excellent, pro’s who know how to make the meal a part of the occasion. Can’t go wrong at Jake’s.
We love dining at Jake's! They know us by name and are always so friendly and treat us like family. The food is always on point and the service is superb :)
Our favorite spot in Palm Springs!
Always a favorite
We made a reservation at 10:25AM for an 11:15AM slot. We noted in the reservation that we had pets so needed an outside table. Upon arrival, the first thing the host said was they wouldn't have a table for us because we didn't make the reservation far enough in advance. We informed him that both pets were service animals to which he demanded paperwork (which to my understanding is illegal). He was incredibly rude and annoyed that we were there, but proceeded to seat us inside. We ordered beverages and upon their arrival another individual (I'm assuming the owner) came up to us demanding paperwork for the dogs and had the nerve to ask how the dog was specifically working to support its master. At this point, it was known that we weren't welcome and we closed the check to go find a more welcoming establishment. Upon exiting, I shared feedback with the host that his delivery could have been less harsh and rude and I suggested they change their reservation types with OpenTable if they weren't able to accommodate. He replied that they didn't accept our reservation, but OpenTable did and that they can't honor everything that comes in. As we were exiting, we shared the service animal paperwork just to prove that they were, in fact, service animals.
Overall, very disappointing experience based on the customer service and that we didn't get to try the food because it actually looked really good and the bit of the bloody mary I was able to drink was quite good. Unfortunately, I'll never return to the restaurant to try the food because no one deserves to be treated the way we were and I don't think they are worthy of getting my money.
Final point of frustration was that they reported me to OpenTable as a 'no show' to which OpenTable was able to make the adjustment on my account and give me the opportunity to provide this review.
Restaurant week brunch in Palm Springs. Lovely morning. Started with a BLT bloody Mary – yummy. Enjoyed watermelon gazpacho, soft shell crab BLT and avacado toast. Both mains served with a nice green salad. Food wonderful. Our server, Allen and his team prompt,efficient and fantastic. Will be back.
Birthday dinner for our daughter
The service was poor. Server was belligerent.
I ordered the beet salad and the arugula was yellow, old and tasted horrible. I always loved the lamb, but this time it was terrible.
I always loved this place, but it will be a long time before I return.
Enjoyed our restaurant week dinner. Scallops were great...had a non alcoholic drink (what?????) which was delicious....strawberry mint or something like that. I have had their breakfast too....also good. Very small restaurant on the inside. Wouldn’t want to eat in the seating area on the street but the inside courtyard looked nice. Cakes were yummy.
The food was fabulous, I had the sea scallops and my husband had Jake’s Ribs...OMG so good! Highly recommend Jake’s to anyone visiting Palm Springs.
Jake’s is one of the best local restaurants in Palm Springs. We absolutely love this place and have NEVER had a bad meal or experience. The quality is outstanding and the desserts are to die for. If you have never been here, you are definitely missing out !
Always love Jake’s!
I haven't been to Jake's in a while so it was fun to return for lunch during Restaurant Week. The place was packed but the staff seemed in good spirits and up for the challenge. We elected to dine inside which is louder and there was a large table with one particularly loud person. They ran out of the cupcakes but substituted with other desserts. I had the lemon cake which was tasty!
Great steak sandwich! Wonderful service
One of the best meals I've had during Palm Springs Restaurant Week! I started with the Lobster Mac & Cheese in a Charred Poblano Pepper. It came out hot in a cute cast iron small skillet and was full of Lobster, I had to really look for the Mac! Then I had the Seared Scallops which were amazing, so much I had to take some home to enjoy the next day. Then we topped it off with Dessert which I had the Lemon Cake, had to take it home as the portions were large. So that night I had the cake and wished I would have ordered another piece to take home it was that good! I will defiantly be back! Thank you for participating in Restaurant Week as this is out of my neighborhood but so glad I found Jakes!!!
We had the three course meals and we all enjoyed them. Eat on the back patio and it was perfect. Service was outstanding.
My daughter and I had dinner at this establishment during restaurant week. The food was fantastic and the service equally as good. The reason for the overall of 2 stars and why I am likely not to return is the closing of the dining experience. Shortly after we placed our desert order (included in the 3 course dinner) the manager of the restaurant came to our table to inform us another party was waiting for our table and we needed to hurry up. We had reservations and arrived on time. Our waiter did not once need to remind us to order, nor encourage us to finish our meal. We had only been at our table a little over an hour when the manager came to our table. Also, as we ordered a bottle of wine and additional appetizers brought as complimentary, no one said there was a time limit on our table. When I called to inform the owner of the rudeness of the manager, his reply was we likely went over our table alloted time and that I should understand since it is restaurant week. Apparently at Jake's during restaurant week, you are required to inhale your food and bottle of wine to accomodate them over booking tables.
A great experience every time! Great entree choices on the Restaurant Week Menu...
Food was great, the service was great but it’s better to sit outside as it’s cuter with the lights and stuff
THIS IS THE FIRST MY PARTNER HAVE BEEN THERE FOR DINNER IT WAS GREAT!
VERY NICE MENUE (THE DESERTS ARE REALLY A STANDOUT) WELL PREPARED FRESH FOOD!
OWNER ON SITE KEEPING A WATCHFUL EYE OUT...HE HAS PRIDE!
WE ARE LOCALS NOW AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO GOING BACK!
May not be the best choice for Restaurant Week given it's June and most of Jake's seating is outdoors. It was lovely--just a bit warm! Thank you.
The food was excellent and the service outstanding. They were so busy,the only table available
was outside which was very hot. The hostess waited for a table inside to become available and moved us. They could not have been more accomodating. Will definitely return to Jake's
It’s one of Palm Springs treasures...and one the best places for deserts
Great evening that started off with a margarita and ended with a brownie. Jake's had a lovely garden ambience with attentive service. The food was tasty and the cake divine! A toast point with lox was a complimentary hors d'oeuvre and a brownie bites our send-off. Our petit filet was tender and tasty served with broccollini and garlic mashed potatoes. Super.
I enjoyed my lunch at Jake's so much, I returned for lunch a few days later with a different friend. Always sad when they close for the summer.
The appetizer and main course were excellent. The desert was average at best.
One other thing, the bartender was so concerned with his tip that he gave the check immediately while we had a drink and waited on our table. Another customer are the same comment to us.
We had a lovely time at Jakes for restaurant week. The food was spectacular. The wine list quite good. The service (Ashley) was great. The misters a great way to keep it cool. Lots of extra help with waters, clearing dishes, running food which I always appreciate and I’m sure the servers do too. The Gf espresso chocolate brownie was amazingly good and I hear nextvtime I have to try the Gf carrot cake. Thanks!!!
Outstanding Menu, Great service. Great patio dining.
Fabulous . Food was superb
Service is always great, but I have to especially commend our back up waitress, Alexi. She is an asset that should be appreciated.
As locals we have dined at Jake's many times. This time was during restaurant week. We always try several restaurants during this yearly event in the Palm Springs area. Some of the restaurants we visited this years as always seem to skimp on their RW menu but NOT Jake's. We were amazed at the food we got for $29. Not only were the salads the normal large size but the entrees were almost more than we could eat. Dessert is the real test for a good restaurant during Restaurant Week as most give you something very small and not their norm. Jake's on the other hand served full portion slices of their fabulous cake. So much we had to take some home. We always appreciate the owner coming around to the table and asking if everything was ok. It's that personal touch that has made Jake's a favorite of ours and the locals.
