Contemporary American
Jake's is a casual, upscale European-style bistro nestled in a secluded courtyard at the epicenter of the Mid-Century Uptown design district of Palm Springs. Much like the architectural and style artisans that surround it, Jake’s takes cues from the past with a nod to the future in the kitchen and behind the bar. Classics are given a surprising twist while new flavor combinations excite the palate. Likewise wines come to us from both New and Old worlds. Of course, save room for something from our signature dessert case! Since 2007, Jake’s has offered al fresco dining as well as seating in our cozy dining room. So join our friendly, approachable and knowledgeable staff for lunch, dinner, or weekend brunch!

Superior service and great food. The only criticism would’ve the tempura coating on the lobster was a little soggy and tuff

Great time except the hostess screwed up our reservation, argued with me, and then punished us by delaying our seating.
Very unprofessional!

We sat in the outside front patio on a perfect Palm Springs afternoon. It was Sunday so the noise level was no problem. We were having brunch so we all ordered something eggy. I ordered my first ever avocado toast covered with 2 poached eggs and various sundries. It was delicious. The staff was great and our waiter was attentive. Highly recommend and we will return without a doubt. P.S. They eve had gluten-free chocolate cake for dessert.

Going to Jake's is always a pleasure. It's one of my top 5 favorite restaurants in the Palm Springs area. This night I took friends, one of whom was from out of town. I had the lamp chops for the first time. Delicious. And my out-of-town friend had the petite steak salad. She told Bruce, one of Jake's owners, it was the best steak she'd ever eaten. (She's from Kansas City, so knows a good steak when she tastes one.) And I don't know what is in the salad dressing Jake's puts on their little gem salad, but I could drink that stuff. I dream of it.

As always, too, the service was outstanding. Very attentive but not hovering. And one of the things I like most about Jake's is that you feel like an honored guest in someone's home. Bruce, Chris (the other owner), Ruby (one of the hostesses), and the rest of the staff down, the server, the people busing and running food, all make me feel so welcome and appreciated.

We went to Jake's last Thursday with a friend, food was excellent -- and they added a couple new items on the menu. The service is always top notch, the atmosphere is great, noise levels were moderate. We love Jake's and always bring visiting friends there for dinner!

We had an excellent meal seated on the inner patio. The heaters weren’t even needed, which is a treat in November. The only minor glitch was that a birthday at the table, which was informed when the reservation was made, was not acknowledged in any way. Still a five star experience.

Entrees and dessert great as always but service during lunch was the worst I’ve ever experienced in all the years of eating at Jake’s. Orders were not written down and items were missed when food arrived. We had to leave the table 3 times to track down staff to refill water, refill iced tea, clear the table, and offer a dessert menu. Our out of town guests were disappointed after my big buildup. So embarrassed!

service was excellent, although you need to make sure you have reservations. We are glad we did, but the bar was reserved as well so we could not enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail.
