Completely over rated. The service was slow and everyone had an attitude. The food was mediocre with small portions. The coffee was absolutely terrible. Will not be back.

Enjoyed a great meal on the front patio; prompt excellent food (fresh and cooked just as requested), enjoyed some lite conversation with others at the next table. Great value with the "special" dinner menu for $34. So much food that I took half of it home. The BEST Coconut cake ever! Jake's consistently delivers a real nice restaurant experience.

Winderful food and service. Seabass was even better than described online on other reviews. The only complaint or rather note we had was that the desserts were so amazing, we really thought they should be available for purchase aside from dining in.

I reviewed so many restaurants and I changed my reservation at the last minute to Jake’s because the reviews on Open Table, Yelp, the website, local word of mouth etc. we’re 5 star AMAZING!They couldn’t fit us in on the patio even though we requested it. I understand but we were sandwiched between two sets of couples in the main area, which felt like a diner. My mother couldn’t hear me but we could both here the parties on either side. It was hot, no ambiance, but the reviews about the food we fabulous I thought we should order an appetizer and drink and see how we felt. I ordered the lobster tempura. I was not “cleaned” so I had the long black gunk to clear out and the presentation was lame on a generic plate. 2 wood skewers barely holding two pieces of lobster. Under the tempura the lobster was delicious but it had kind of grossed me out with the black decrement. I eat lots of shellfish so I know what it is & for $20 for two small pieces it should be clean. Then they gave us bread but took it away and cleaned everything off our table but the dirty wood skewers. My mom and I just looked at each because we didn’t want to yell across the table. We politely paid for our cocktails and appetizer, didn’t make a fuss, got an uber and went to another restaurant at 9:30 pm where we had a lovely dinner, quiet, patio seating, fabulous food and impeccable service, just as we’d had Friday night at another great restaurant. It was easily in the same price bracket. More actually. I only mention that because it wasn’t the cost. I honestly don’t know what the hype is about. One of the couples next to us also left after the appetizer and went somewhere else. They were on a date. They were going to get dinner but changed their minds too. I know because I heard them. They didn’t know we our plans since we couldn’t talk much over the noise. Anyway, not mad or disappointed. The service was so-so. I won’t go back but want to leave a review contrary to the hype.

Food and service were excellent, as usual. Good selection of wine by the glass. Our only issue was that we had selected a table on the patio, but were seated inside. The tables are too close and I kept getting bumped. Otherwise a very enjoyable meal.

To keep this in perspective, we have been there before and really enjoyed the food. This time the food was adequate. It surprised me that they had a swordfish special on risotto but in the risotto was sausage (I do not eat red meat), odd. The pork ribs were fine (which my partner had) but nothing special.
But the cauliflower critters were really good.
Just slightly disappointed in the food this time but I would go back.
Note to chef, do not add meat to a fish dish.
The patio is really nice so I always suggest, if weather permits, to sit outside in the back.
Service was very good and this has been consistent.
They have great desserts and they are very tempting. Save room or share a dessert.
