    The server did not seem to care at all that we were there. He almost seemed irritated when we asked for bread or ordered more drinks. It’s a shame because I brought a friend here that was visiting from Colorado and the food is so amazing that it was a shame that the service had to be that way and our bill was not cheap. It was over $200.

    As usual, on a visit to downtown Portland Jake's Famous Crawfish is a bucket list "must" restaurant at which to dine. For the quality of the service and food, the menu's prices are quite reasonable.

    Absolutely did not disappoint! Seafood is fresh and prepared with love. It has to be to taste this delicious. If you’re in the mood for a steak you will not be disappointed! Filet Mignon melted in your mouth. Salads and chowder was also top notch. It’s been over 15 years since I was here. I won’t wait that long to come back. A little speedy but the quality is well worth it.

    Morgan was wonderful! Friends and family were celebrating my 77th birthday with me! I had the sautéed crab legs but should have ordered the crab cocktail as I was craving crab and the sauce was too overpowering . Overall wonderful time especially after the noise level abated. Mahalo

    This restaurant is many steps above its sister (McCormick and Schmick’s Grill at Bridgeport Village (which is still one of our go to spots). You can feel the history in the furnishings and decorations. Our server Brandon made us feel pampered from start to finish. Dont skip the desserts (traditional cheesecake, flourless chocolate cake, mousse, or crème brûlée).

    Made reservations for my birthday dinner. There were only 4 of us, so a small group and we were seated in the very back of the restaurant in a small room( we passed multiple empty four top tables all the way to the back), with about 18 other people, it was so loud in there. We had to yell to hear each other. No one asked about the tables birthday on our reservation, didn’t really feel special. The food was fine, the drinks were fine but the overly loud room was not, as we walked out the rest of the restaurant was reasonably normal in volume.

    Michelle was outstanding server. Salmon was enhanced by a buttery sauce. Petrale Sole was to perfection. Green beans and red potatoes excellent. The Bloody Mary on special with the "well vodka" was disappointing > I should have gone with my favorite Tito's vodka. Overall, a favorite restaurant for excellent seafood.

    Kudos to the staff for trying their level best on a busy NYE. We were seated a half an hour late- which made it difficult to order and eat to get to our show on time. We were late- and so sad. We had to order the simplest things and rush to get anything down, and pay our bill. The salad I had was a simple Caesar- and the dressing wasn’t classic Caesar, the dressing was nothing like a classic Caesar- and it had those gross store bought croutons and way too much parm- underwhelming for a classic restaurant!

    It’s tradition for my family to have NYE dinner at Jake’s Crawfish and this year did not disappoint! We started with the calamari. It was delish, but I wish you could have the option of rings only. Moving on to dinner, I can’t get enough of the seafood Alfredo with added Dungeness crab! Service was impeccable. My only grievance is my mom is in a wheelchair and instructions how to enter the restaurant weren’t clear. Not very ADA-friendly. Overall, I plan to keep this tradition alive!

    Terrific in all aspects. Seated promptly. Waited on expeditiously Very friendly informative waiter. Drinks were exceptional made with fresh squeezed juices etc big cut above the usual restaurant fare Appetizers came out first. Main dishes later. The crab sauté is very unique, the horseradish crusted steelhead amazing. Can’t say enough about the whole experience. Bravo not cheap but sooo worth it

    Started off on the wrong foot. Dressed in our Blazer gear to Celebrate Lillard for his franchise scoring title, one of the staff members stated “we got some mouth breathers here”. More than one of us heard that. Luckily that same staff member did not take care of us that evening. Besides that we enjoyed our waitress and the food always solid. So if you are not dressed to staff’s standards, get ready to be insulated.
