Seafood | Downtown, Portland

Wow! Could I give these guys TEN stars? The service here was OUTSTANDING (Thanks Elysse! I hope I spelled your name correctly. You were THE BEST!). And the food was absolutely perfect. After inching through rush hour traffic and arriving a full 30 mintues late for our reservation (and compromising our chances for eating at all that evening since we had tickets for a show. And BTW, I did call to let them know our dilemna and that we were trying to get there.), we were seated immediately in the bar area after receiving the suggestion that service would be snappy in the bar and that we could get seated and leave within an hour. As promised, Elysse came to help us right away, brought our drinks and then dinner arrived in an amazingly short time. Thank you Jake's for saving our evening. You're AMAZING! Both Salmon and Steelhead were perfect in flavor and presesentation. Veggies were perfect also. Wow! More

Pre-Timbers game dinner. Hardly anyone in the restaurant at 6:30pm on a Saturday, but the service wasn’t smothering. Staff recognized when we needed them and when we didn’t. Stylized older building with pleasantly creaking wood floors. The biggest drawback was the 20 men from the clean and sober house across the street all smoking at the same time, but good on them for their efforts. Overall a nice experience. More
