Loved old school ambience with wood paneled walls.
Waitstaff friendly and accommodating. Food good.
Service good with one major issue at end of meal - told waitress we had to make a show, so would she bring check with dessert so we could pay right away, which she did - but then we waited forever for her to come pick it up - we actually had to get up and find her! - no apology, and in fact she seemed annoyed!
We did make the show, but just barely and it was very stressful.
Bread was extremely stale - would have thought this would have been corrected with all the numerous previous comments!

Disappointed in my pasta dish as it was to creamy. It was ordered without meat or fish. We would like to see more vegetarian options on the menu.

My partner was quite delighted with her entree' and we were both pleased with the dessert.

Waitress Monica forgot our cocktails. When they finally arrived 35 mins after we ordered they were so pathetically weak. Nearly water. She exchange it but the second drink water just as bad. So disappointed.

We ordered oysters in the half shell. We wanted enough for three people. When our appetizer arrived it was only six oysters. Her assessment and recommendation for quantity was poor.

She did give us two mini slices of torte I think as an apology. She brought us only two tiny slivers for three people.

The experience was the poorest I’ve experienced in a year at Jakes. my friends and I frequent Jakes weekly for happy hour in the summer.

I think we deserve drinks on the house or comped a meal or two.

Hope next experience redeems Jake’s.

Thank you,

The food was ok but overpriced. The bread was stale and arrived very, very late. The server seemed annoyed with us and wouldn’t allow my friend to order his meal while she was taking our appetizer orders. My crab Louis salad was not good. Lots of crab but it was served on top of ice berg lettuce that was cut so finely it had the same texture as the crab and the dressing tasted like ketchup.

Whenever we are in Portland we stop at Jakes Crayfish. The seafood is the freshest. Our schedule only allowed us to enjoy lunch. We both carried away 1/2 our meal and reheated them for dinner. The service was excellent the only negative was that their wonderful sourdough bread seemed stale. Since it was lunch we passed on dessert. Our favorite is usually the chocolate bag…filled with mousse, whipped cream, and fresh berries. Guess we’ll have to save that for our next trip.

Fabulous Thanksgiving dinner…Both a delicious traditional offering AND Jake’s “regular” menu. The freshest seafood-crab, oysters, shrimp-prepared perfectly! Also, each dish whether an appetizer or an entree was attractively presented.
Plan to return next week for more seafood!

We ordered from the regular menu for Thanksgiving dinner. Our table was available even though we arrived a bit early, service was attentive and not at all rushed for a busy holiday. The food was exquisite!

We were there for the Thanksgiving dinner. Everything was the usual Jake’s greatness, but the food was so salty as to be inedible. It was disappointing.

Recently dined at Jake’s. They have a large menu and wine list, with lots of options for ordering. My dinner was delicious, portions were generous. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable about seafood availability and wine. The service was top notch. Love the dark wood interior, the old Portland ambiance and music. Great experience.

The food here was fantastic. My friend and I were so excited that the stuffed halibut was gluten free. And it did not disappoint. I was less impressed with the side dishes but hey, the seafood portion was large and I filled up on that easily. The service also left a bit to be desired, though I still made sure to tip 20% anyway. It was quite busy so I gave them the benefit of the doubt. However, a couple of the wait staff made odd comments that were supposed to be humorous but just didn’t fit the setting. One waiter jumped into our conversation at an odd time, and another said “go get it at the bar” when a friend ordered another drink. He was joking, I guess, because he did bring the drink. But it felt off. When you have these menu prices and the waiters are clearly well trained in high-end dining etiquette, comments like those are off-putting. It’s not a Red Lobster. It also took awhile to get the check and in general we weren’t checked on enough. We had to flag someone for second drinks and the check. Just a tip, don’t forget that the more drinks one buys, the more they spend, and the higher the 20% tip gets. I would go here again though. The seafood was stellar, and worth the prices.

Had Jake's etouffee, and it was amazing. Great flavor. My wife had the flat iron steak and it was perfectly cooked. Have been going to Jake's for many years, and tonight's meal validated why we keep coming back. Excellent!

Jake’s is a classic. Always excellent food and service.
The only complaint I have is Jake’s discontinued valet parking.
I know it is difficult with the tents on Stark, however with the parking garage in the building open at best erratically, valet parking needs to return.
