We had another wonderful evening at Jake's. We spent New Years Eve here with family and enjoyed a delicious meal in a very cozy, intimate setting. This is our second year, so it looks like we have a new family tradition.
Our dinners were delicious and the service was outstanding, from start to finish. Thank you, Jake's. We will be back again soon!

New Year's is always a tough dining out night. The problem here was with the hostess. We were on time with our reservation, but she placed us in the worst table in the house. Right in the center path of the front desk, kitchen, bathroom, bar and all the other tables. There was one other table available, but it was pre-set for a larger party (who was late). We asked to move to the side. Her response was poor: we are putting larger tables (4 people!) on the side. If you want to be on the side, you should have requested that with your reservation. Always a good move - to blame the customer for what is just bad luck.

I understand it's New Year's and every table will be used. But can't you show some empathy? This is a very special annual dinner for us, and they treated it like it we were there for a quick bite. Starting off on the wrong foot really became insurmountable once we saw the non-stop parade of employees and customers. Hard to have a conversation when it was so crazy busy and we had to lean in to not be hit in the head with passers-by. It still happened a lot.

Food was very nice, and the server (Mark) was awesome. He was relaxed and did not try to move us through like cattle, even though the hostess was eager to turn our table. You can't clear plates and drop a dessert menu within 15 seconds of putting down a fork. I know you have another party coming in, but really, they are not going any where if they have to wait 5 minutes on NYE. We dropped $200 for dinner. Let the server decide who has over stayed. The table of 4 who took the side table ran passed the end time you gave them, and they were not nudged out. The awkwardness did not stop for us this night.

We like Jake's a lot. This was not their best night for us. I was hoping to start a NYE tradition, but I'll keep looking.

My group of 6 had a fun & delicious brunch here on the Sunday of New Year's wkend. I made an advanced rez online & were seated outside in their lovely patio. It is a very lovely setting with a bar towards the back (with a HOT bartender), a large wall of ivy, and open overhead. The waiter & support staff were great & attentive. Our orders & drinks all came out as ordered & were delicious. The place was pretty busy being a Sunday of the holiday wkend which didn't negatively impact our experience. Not a long wait to be seated or to get our drinks or our meals. I would absolutely recommend a fun & yummy brunch here with friends.

Always one of our favorites. We were too full for dessert - which is a shame. It's one of the highlights here. My Ahi Tuna (a special) was delicious...could have maybe been a bit of a smaller portion. But so good!

We had reservations at 6:45 and were promptly seated indoors as requested. My husband said his filet was the best he has ever had in Palm Springs. My salmon was perfectly cooked but too heavy on the chick peas. The reason for 3 stars for ambiance is that the tables are very close together.

Had a great dinner at Jake’s! When we arrived for our reservation at 7:15p, our table wasn’t ready for us. It’s easy to understand why, there aren’t many tables to begin with so I would definitely recommend making a reservation in advance. We opted to have a drink standing at the bar before we sat. Mid way through our drinks, we were brought to our table. Service was excellent, our food also great. We had the sea bass and the eggplant dinners and a special sushi roll for an appetizer. We brought our two small dogs along for dinner and it was great to have them there with us. The ambiance of the restaurant was very cozy and romantic, we will be back for sure!

Jakes's is by far the best and most unique small intimate restaurant in Palm Springs. It evokes Europe and California at the same time. Mainly in a courtyard but always warm enough in winter and cool enough in summer. Great menu and topnotch servers who never leave. Terrific owner who always makes it a point t stop for a moment and check on the patrons. Number one in my book.

Every aspect of our meal here was enjoyable. The service was outstanding, with perfect recommendations on wine, dishes for our kids, and entrees. Loved all the dishes--meatloaf, chicken Milanese and branzino special. As our meals have gone in Palm Springs, quite reasonable too. Highly recommend. And nice outdoor dining too.

We have eaten at Jake's twice and really like it. The food was excellent, perfectly cooked salmon with great side dishes, and ribs that had an interesting glaze, not at all BBQ sauce. Very good service, nice wine with a real pour not a sip, and great cakes for dessert. We will go every time we're in Palm Springs.

Jake's is favorite and going there is like visiting a friend's home. I'm always welcomed. The food is great, though I have to admit that I go back and forth between two dishes nearly every time: the Miami Vice and Ahi Tuna salads. However, next time I'm going to have a steak salad one of my friends had, though I don't see it on the menu at the moment when I searched for its name (perhaps it was a special).

One of the reasons I like dining at Jake's is the outside patio. The weather in Palm Springs is perfect (and will be until late May!), so the patio is delightful. It's small and enclosed on one side by a huge ficus hedge. You feel cozy and "outdoors" at the same time.

A local business owner recommended Jake's to us. We sat our outside, where the ambiance and service was very good. My girlfriend got the meatloaf -and she liked it. I got the NY strip steak and I was disappointed. I had ordered it medium-rare but it was delivered to the table overcooked and the cut was very mealy, tough and bland.

GIven Jake's fairly limited menu I would expect them to excel at each dish that they offer, but this unfortunately was not the case -- at least tonight. I can't speak to the rest of the menu as there were only two of us, but I'm not sure I would return to Jake's or recommend it to a friend.

Generally fine. Our server & other staff were wonderful. The food was generally too spicy especially the roasted potatoes & fish tacos. Good thing we were able to tolerate it but it shouldn't have come that way without notice. One of us ordered chicken quesadilla which came without cheese. Though it took a bit of time, a new one was prepared for him. feels like the chef on that afternoon wasn't on top of his/her game. Of course we'll come back but if this keeps happening, at some point we'll be much less likely to do so. Our server, again, was wonderful, really added to the fun of being there.

Without realizing until we were ready to order, we all ended up requesting the cioppino. It was delicious and loaded with lots of seafood, more than expected, even including a soft shell crab on top. Of the best we've ever had. Definitely will plan to come back again for more!

We were attending a conference in the Palm Springs area. I do not like being trapped at golf resorts, so off we went to Jake's for brunch.
It's rare to find a place that has such consistent reviews--and now that we have eaten there, I'm joining the fan club. I had avocado toast--I know, it's a thing--but truly, this was very much above what I expected. Hubby had the croque and eggs--he raved too. We could not resist the carrot cake for dessert--and our server gave us a half portion (still way too much) so I felt better about not wasting such a delicious cake. Don't miss the baked goods!
The menu is eclectic, and the food outstanding. Drinks are just as good. Lovely patio area--with enough shade for a person prone to sunburn to be comfortable, but still have nice natural light.
Our server was great. It's clear that this is a place that locals love--and we will definitely be back next time business brings us here.

This small, intimate, buzzing, and casually elegant spot is a must for getting together with valued friends. Always congenial, Jake's greets us warmly and is attentive to our interests. They deliver high quality meals with personal care, yet let us become engrossed in talking with friends without interfering. We loved the barramundi and shrimp along with watermelon gazpacho. It is atop our favorites list.
