Lively atmosphere (can be a bit loud) in garden patio setting with nice menu and interesting specials. Super nice servers who are very on top of things and efficient. We liked it so much we went back the next night!

Have been a big fan of Jake’s for the last several years. Service and drinks are always good and so is the ambiance. We were here last year, about the same time and we were REALLY surprised at the small size our appetizer and entrees. Their portion size in the past was much bigger and this was quite surprising. We actually were still a bit hungry when we left. Food was good, although expected more from this visit.

The last two times we have eaten at Jakes have been definitely disappointing. We thought we'd take our out of town friends to a nice place for brunch on Saturday.

The food was horrible. The Cuban sand which was dry and cold. There is too much bread and it was not even toasted or grilled very much so it was like eating dry meat and cheese with two slices of semi-mushy thick bread. Hardly any pickles or flavor whatsoever and the salad dressing was like a sour dish soap. Milky and watery. One guest ordered egg whites and bacon. There looked to be only one egg on his plate and way over done and greasy bacon. How do you even manage to do that??? Overdone but still greasy??

There are virtually no gluten free options on the menu except for bland "salads"....the tarragon chicken salad had absolutely no tarragon flavor. If you're going to sell a salad as "tarragon Chicken Salad" at least put some of the main herb in it. A little salt and pepper would be helpful as well.

Overall we are pretty much done with this place. The only thing going for it is the atmosphere which is a cute and outdoorsy patio...but the food doesn't have any value.

Portions were very generous and delicious. Salads were creative. Price was comparable to most restaurants in the area. Nice desserts and big enough to share. Would keep this on my list of restaurants to return to.

Some restaurants in Palm Springs get by on their ‘personality’ and ambiance. Jakes has a nice setting and great service, but it delivers on the food. I think we’ll be regulars.

Jake's is our regular easy dinner out - when we can get a seat outside. The atmosphere in the courtyard is exceptional but the inside is a little too cramped and cozy for our taste. The food is generally good, but not spectacular. Best of all, the bar is a great option if you can't get a table. Fun place to be and watch the always-playing vintage movie on the screen behind the bar.

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.

Overall I loved Jakes. The food was good and well priced and the service was spot on. I have seen negative reviews and frankly don't understand them. It is hip and lively and fun and a good deal. The only thing I would not go there for is quiet.

 (Vancouver)·Dined on November 12, 2017

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.

The food was excellent. Scallops and Filet Mignon delicious. Salted Carmel Cake for Desert was worth the calories. Service was top notch. Only negative would be the high corkage fee of $25.

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
