Very disappointed with hostess and where she sat us. Whole row of empty 4 tops (all with reserved signs, as was our table),yet she stuck,us way back in corner, under speaker, quite loud. Askedtobe moved, she would not accommodate us. Said all were reserved. Guess what we had reservations also. Not Very customer friendly. Don't see a need to go back anytime soon.

The food was good, but the service was extremely slow ... and without explanation. We had an early reservation and were among the first dinner guests of the evening, but we noticed that several tables seated well after us were served far in advance of us. Also we often needed to seek the attention of the wait staff for refills of water or a refresh of beverages. The food was well prepared and the setting comfortable, but we may not be returning.

Would have given 5 stars for the food except the pork chop was extremely over cooked and dry, calamari was great as was meatloaf.
We will go back again, just will not have pork chop.

My boyfriend and I came here on a date during our vacation to PS last weekend and we both think it was probably the best meal of our lives. We could not get over how delicious everything was!! He got the Chilean Sea Bass and I got the Steak Wedge but we shared truffle mac and cheese and tempura fried lobster. You MUST also get a slice of cake as it is their thing. Meyer lemon is my fave, I've had it a couple times now. I cannot stop raving to everyone about Jake's!

Friendly bistro restaurant with a local feel. The dinner menu range was good and the food fine. Perhaps the ambience could be improved in the interior section by the removal of the large and dominating cake counters? Our service was pitched at just the right level and the wine recommendation was well made.
We look forward to our next time at Jakes.

We cannot express enough how much we enjoy our dinners and time at Jake's over many years. My wife's sea bass was tender and flavorful over mashed potatoes with freshly sauteed veggies alongside. My Pad Thai with shrimp and melt-in-your-mouth scallops was a spicy treat. Those followed a fresh poke appetizer. Our servers were fun and pleasant.

This was quite a surprise.
Looking for a place to have dinner the final evening we were in PS
and found Jake's online. The food was great - delicious and nicely presented
and the service was outstanding.
Would definitely recommend highly and will visit again when in the PS area.

Nice hideaway place. Nice menus (dinner and lunch) and beautiful desserts that are often as good as they appear. Food can tend to be salty and like so many food and beverage service establishments, the art of gracious greeting, seating and food and beverage service is lost. Sadly that too is true at Jakes.

All in all a place to applaud and support.

Really wonderful food, served with friendly attentive staff. The little gem salad with dates and Parmesan cheese was outstanding- imaginative combination that made us want to try to imitate it at home. Main courses (meatloaf and chicken) were delicious. And the cake slices for desert made you feel like a kid again!

We will happily come back next visit.
