 (Chicago)·Dined on December 3, 2017

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.

The main course was excellent, and it is a good value. The French Onion Soup was slightly salty, but good. The desserts were amazing. The service was slow/inattentive. However, overall was very satisfied and would go there again.

Jake’s is a fine experience and well worth an evening with friends. The meals we had were perfectly prepared, well presented and delicious. Service was appropriately attentive and pleasant. Other patrons were enjoying themselves and seemed to be as satisfied as we were. If there is anything to change it would be the chairs. That said we’ll return again. A delightful evening.

I look forward to my next dining experience there.

We have been going to Jakes since it opened in Palm Springs. It is our favorite place to take friends and family. The food and service is always the best. We have so many favorite Lunch and Dinner items. For lunch the seared tuna wrap and Miami vice salad are our lunch favorites. The dinners are the most impressive with fine dinning quality. The specials are always amazing. We live in Old Las Palmas and we always meet neighbors at Jakes. The owners are always present and working so hard to make sure everyone is happy. The cakes have to best in the Valley. Jakes is the best resturant in Palm Springs!

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.

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.

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.
