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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
