Jake's - Palm Springs

$30 and under
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!

    This is not my first time at Jake's. Ordinarily they receive 5 stars all around. Service however was off this evening. The server was pleasant, but they were not "on the ball" as they have been in the past. Otherwise, an outstanding meal as usual.

    Jake's is one of my Palm Springs favorites. I usually give them a 5-star review, but this time drop it to a 4. Here's why. I usually order either the Miami Vice or Seared Ahi Tuna salads. Both have (HAD!) amazing dressings that are essential to each dish. I look at other offerings and sometimes choose one of them, but I usually end up with either of the two salads. This time I ordered the Ahi, expecting the usual spectacular dish. But I was surprised when it came in a bowl rather than a plate. I was also surprised by the look of it. It usually has several (generous) pieces of a small Ahi filet. This time there were only 4 or 5 rather thin but larger slices served over fewer greens than usual. The biggest surprise was the taste. Rather than the wonderful ponzu-flavored dressing, all that seemed to be on the salad was olive oil. No acid-based second ingredient. And here's the second disappointment for this visit. Usually, the service at Jake's is outstanding. However, this time, when I looked around to grab the attention of our server, neither he nor any other servers or runners were on the floor. For the next 10 minutes or so, I tried to catch the attention of any other server or runner I saw, but as soon as I raised my hand they looked or scurried away. Just about the time I started to get up and go to the counter to ask for my server, I caught the attention of a guy who was not my server but who came over. I explained the problem. He offered another dressing, not the ponzu. Since I had forgotten exactly what the dressing used to be, I accepted his offer of another citrus dressing. He brought it and I used it, but it wasn't the same as what was usually served with the Ahi salad, good though it was. At the end of my meal, I asked the server about the difference in the salad. He told me Jake's had decided to change the Ahi salad (WHY?!). It is now served as it had been presented. I expressed my disappointment and asked him to tell the owners, Chris and Bruce.

    GREAT place to have a fun, relaxing and satisfying Christmas Eve dinner (or any dinner or brunch for that matter)! My wife and I now count Jake's as one of our Top5 favorites in the CV and visit often. Treated our younger son and his wife to Christmas Eve dinner this year - on the comfortably heated patio . . . and now it is one of their faves! Jake's staff is always great . . . great service, great attention and great attitudes. Nice friendly crowd Christmas Eve. Met new people this evening and met a great "senior" Golden Retriever . . . Cooper! All of our dishes were fantastic (we inhaled the roasted Brussel sprouts appetizer - FAB as my wife would say!!). And the cakes . . . OH, the cakes!!! Just tremendous (and enough to take home for later revisit). HIGHLY recommend Jake's. If you haven't been to Jake's yet . . . GO!

    If Juan isn’t the best bartender/server in town I don’t know who is. He is amazing, knowledgeable and strives to help make the experience extraordinary. It appears the rest of the staff tries to emulate his excitement, and they too are excellent.
