Jake's - Palm Springs Ratings and Reviews
Fabulous brunch at Jake’s. Amazing Bloody Mary’s - particularly the Horseradish infused vodka. Delicious. Great food - my hubby was blown away by the maple bacon. I had eggs in purgatory which were good too although I wish they’d been baked all together in a skillet it felt like they were constructed into one bowl after each component had been cooked - asked for toast to mop up the sauce though because it was still tasty. Took several slices of the coconut cake home and ate them later - totally delicious. We loved the decor and the vibe - laid back, stylish and very very welcoming. Great job Jake’s - if we’re ever in Palm Springs again we will be back! Thanks for having us!
Brunch was terrific! Great menu items. Everything is delicious. Jake's is a wonderful place to enjoy a meal. But here's a little non-Jake related request: Diners...when you are going to a restaurant, please don't slather yourself with perfume or cologne. Doesn't matter how expensive it is, I want to taste my food, not be overwhelmed by your cologne.
Our waiter was very nice and very competent. And dessert was fabulous! We were though disappointed:
1. I’d asked for special table for a birthday occasion in the OpenTable notes, and it was entirely ignored.
2. Placed in section near freezer, while it was still empty. Fine for quick lunch, but sad for a special birthday :(.
3. Ordered eggplant entree and it was stunningly bland and watery. Wow I couldn’t believe it. I wouldn’t complained but no one came by to ask how our meal was. Not once.
Remembering what a great dinner we had here last year, I chose Jake's for my birthday dinner. The food is just as wonderful as it was a year ago. I ordered two appetizers: the scallop flight and the lobster tempura, C had the filet and the Wedge salad. C was pleased that they offered a gluten-free chocolate- espresso brownie. Service is excellent. Highly recommended!
I made my reservation for 5:00pm. I was 10 minutes early the hostess let me know they open at 5 , so I agree with wait in the side walk even if it was tables ready to seat us in the patio area. 5pm and we still waiting, other couple arrive and they left in less of 2 minutes, we still in tge walkside waiting till 5:10 pm... this is ridiculous. It's a,lot of good restaurants in Palm springs, this is just the most rude service I got . We never got seat. I'm wondering at what time they notice we left. They just don't care about customer service.
It is a pleasure to write a review for this restaurant. Very Good I just love this place, the food is wonderful and the host is very nice to me everytime I come in. When I make a reservation the table is ready when we arrive and never have to wait for it.
Now to the good part, if that's not enough. "Let them eat cake". If the food is not enough and you might have room for some, it is the best Cake and so Choices. the cake reminds me of my favourite bakery in La called Sweet Lady Jane. Now if that does not get you to go to this restaurant.
Trust me this place is a treat and not just for the desserts. Good Eating
Delicious brunch and amazing horseradish Bloody Mary - we went for the blood Mary selection and Jake's did not disappoint. Staff was friendly and attentive and atmosphere is quaint and neighborly. Loved the dog friendly patio - despite not having our pooches with us we sat next to a couple of very nice pups and a their owners.
We just bought a home in PS and were told by several long-time local friends that Jake's was their favorite spot in PS. So yes, we had high expectations for our dinner last Friday night. While in a great setting with a pleasant service staff, the food was hit or miss. The cocktails were generous and excellent, and the wine list had some really nice red and white wines available by the glass. The lobster tempura was excellent, but the Shishito Peppers appetizer was totally forgettable. Unfortunately, our two entrees were the big disappointment. My husband ordered the sea bass which was overly charred so you really couldn't taste the fish--just the char. My "nightly special" sole was panko-crusted but so burned (pan-fried) that I had to return it. The replacement 10-15 minutes later was very tasty, but it's never fun to share a $190+ dinner for two when you're eating your entrees at separate times. The "comp" coconut cake was great, and a nice gesture...though it really didn't make up for the burned sole and, more importantly, the fact that we didn't get to enjoy dinner together. A more service-oriented restaurant would have taken back BOTH of our entrees, re-prepared them, and brought them out together. That's the kind of service you should provide at the prices Jake's charges. May or may not go back.
