A group of us from Chicago are visiting. I had a wonderful meal at Jakes last year and wanted my friends to have a special experience. Lola was our server and became a friend. The food was amazing and Lola is the best server ever. Truly!!

The salad which was on every plate was dressed with a rancid tasting lemon vinaigrette. We suspected either the lemon wasn't ripe or sat too long after it was mixed but it was awful. My saltenbucco sandwich was gross with boneless skinless flavorless dry chicken with cold mozzarella, I expected melted and prosciutto. The prosciutto was good . I picked it out and left the rest but no one noticed. The tail meat lobster roll looked like it was on a small wiener roll. The tail meat was minced so it could have come from anywhere. Horrible. There were four of us and only one meal was acceptable. Even the luscious looking banana chocolate cake for desert had dry chocolate icing that cracked and wouldn't stick to the fork. One in our party was sick the entire next day.

Was highly recommended by family members who have gone there for lunch. We booked a table for early dinner on Valentine's Day. We ate inside but noticed that there is an attractive inner courtyard. Attentive and friendly service, not at all stuffy. We were offered a complimentary appetizer. There was a special limited menu and we were both able to make choices easily. The quality and presentation of our dinner was excellent. We did not order dessert but were offered complimentary chocolate dipped strawberries. We noticed that they are known for their cakes. Will definitely return when in Palm Springs.

Always tasty menu and good service at Jakes. I had the Cobb salad which was very good. One of our party had the french toast breakfast while another enjoyed a mouth watering BLT. We topped it off with a piece of cake for the table which was enough. Jakes is always a good choice for lunch in Palm Springs.

Went 2 Fridays in a row and the stmosphere and service were great on both occasion. The first time I had the meatloaf which was to die for! Second time I had the chilean seabass and it was perfectly cooked. Keep room for their cakes, they are delicious!

Our dinner at Jakes was the best cooking we have had in Palm Springs this season.
Steaks perfectly done, not one bit overcooked like another high end in town, that I won't mention.
Service was attentive, but not pushy, felt like we were there to have our own fun, not to be rushed in and out.
It is on the top of our list!

This is a casual and popular spot for dinner. Good drinks, ambitious menu, which works better than I expected.
Clients and staff are outgoing and fun.
The lamb chops and chocolate layer cake are both worth a try. Share the cake, hoard the lamb.

Came to Jake's because we loved the story behind the name. Jake was so cute and especially loved his pictures on the walls. Just wish we could have seen Jackson on the premises. Visited with old friends on the patio for lunch and we all had a great experience. Would definitely return.

As usual, everything was excellent. Consistently great service, consistently great food, consistently great atmosphere. I love bringing friends who are first timers... they are always impressed by every element. And that you actually had my Salted Caramel Vanilla cake on this visit made everything stellar! Another fabulous lunch! Proud to call Jake’s my favorite eatery in Palm Springs! Thanks so much. I’ll be back again soon!

When we arrived, it was about 74 degrees outside and the restaurant had the overhead heaters on. They seated us beneath two heaters and it was at least 90 degrees. Why they did this, I don't know. They did turn them off on request. The restaurant seems to think that everyone likes disco music and plays it loudly. This interferes with the dining experience.

We had a great Saturday brunch at Jakes. We sat in the courtyard and the service was excellent. You can tell everyone enjoys working there and the soft shell crab sandwich was the best I've ever had. My husband had one of their infamous bloody mary's and being pregnant, I enjoyed their European Lemonade mocktail which reminded me of a mojito- yum! We ended brunch with their coconut cream cake and next time we are in Palm Springs, we will be back!

Very busy for Saturday brunch. Attentive service. Food good but not exceptional. Specialty dessert is various cakes. Vanilla salted caramel not as good as we remembered. $8 for a bottle of beer is expensive - more than Spencer's and there I get white linen !! Wine is similarly pricey. Expect a $60 bill for 2 for lunch
