Loved the sole and rockfish as well as the very kind and spirited Victoria who has been there for many, many years she made it special
Truly some of the best food and service I've ever experienced!
The food was very average. Way overrated and way over priced.
The waiter was very attentive and the staff was friendly. The food was excellent- but beware an officer patrols the area looking for illegal left turns! He was nice, and only gave us a warning. But no left turns on one of the streets. I would go again if I lived here! I’ve been there twice in the 4 days I have been here. Great food!!!!
Very attentive server, and a quick kitchen. We really enjoyed the Crab and Shrimp Cakes, well balanced and properly prepared.
Our party of seven people enjoyed the food and ambience of Jake's. We were celebrating a birthday. The hostess agreed with our request to move to a table in a quieter area.
The wait staff was attentive and the food was delicious. I took a chance by ordering Ahi Tuna Kung Pao and was glad I did - seared tuna chunks with lots of vegetables in a soy ginger sauce.
After the luncheon,we lingered at the table and didn't feel any pressure to move along. It was a great experience at an iconic Portland restaraunt.
I & 2 friends had lunch this past Saturday. We flew up from Silicon Valley, CA for a day trip. The restaurant was perfect. Our server Gabriel was beyond Outstanding. He made excellent suggestions, which we followed. This is what we ordered collectively, won't separate it. 2 Dungeness Crab Leg cocktails, 1 Seared Ahi Tuna Steak, Ginger, Wasabi, Soyu, 2 fish tacos and half-dozen Quillicine Oysters on the half shell. Martinis and Wine. Absolutely superb lunch. Truly, could not have been better. The Dungeness Crab Leg cocktails were to die for!!
Great food, great service, always on point. One of our favorites in Portland.
Whenever I have an out-of-towner come to Portland, Jake's is my first dinner choice. Always energetic, always delicious, always evocative of Portland.
Very good food and excellent service. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection.
Experience was not as good as when we were there in Feb. I ordered the same thing and it was good but not as good as when ordered in Feb.
We took our daughter and son-in-law, both of whom, had never been here. The place was packed and we were early so we had to wait for our reservation time. Once we were seated, the water was helpful in explaining the dishes to our children and what was included. We all had a different fish dishes after splitting two beet salads. We enjoyed our meals with a nice bottle of white wine. Their selection of wines is excellent, lots to choose from at all prices. After dinner we shared one triple choice dessert (creme brulee, a fruit compote with ice cream and flourless chocolate cake). Everything was excellent. We all enjoyed ourselves with a cup of coffee after.
We chose Jake's based on it's historical reputation and proximity to our hotel (walking distance always makes for less stress). Our server was Bret. He was very professional and on top of the details we needed to hear. The food matched our high expectations and we felt very comfortable and well served.
The place is large but we felt we garnered the right level of attention. I will not hesitate to return.
The muscles and the salmon were excellent
Our group of 4 had a quiet table even though the restaurant was packed. Even with very quiet-spoken guests, it was always easy to follow the conversations - perfect for a business recruitment dinner. The food and beverages were all stellar - could have been on Bourbon St in New Orleans. Service was impeccable.
Really enjoyed it there as we always do. Thank you again. The service is always above and beyond
Lived in Portland over 30 years and came here for the 1st time, absolutely loved it! Great food, great service and wonderful ambiance.
Razor Clams were excellent, accompanied by Vickie's typical excellent service.
Attentive, informative server without being intrusive. Crab bisque was excellent. Crab salad probably the best I've ever eaten!! Will go again and also look for items on line.
Apart from being put in a back out of the way corner we had a great birthday meal for my wife.
Our server, Rob, was great suggesting fine menu items and looking after us really well. The food was great too and imaginative use of fish. You could have some pretty expensive choices - 3 types of oyster etc.
Always a winner. Excellent seafood, broad menu, inventive drinks. Good service.
Great Seafood - enjoyed the dinner. Service was exceptional!
Always reliable to deliver food prepared as requested. Wait staff is almost without exception highly motivated and friendly. Get a window seat and be amused at the flotsam and jetsam walking by on the sidewalks.
We went to the wrong Jake’s made it to the right jakes the food service the ambience Was amazing
I love the atmosphere at Jake’s. And the service is consistently great.
Wonderful server, great food! Bright and cheery place
Great dinner, great night
The parking was convenient, the restaurant was decorated nicely, first class service and outstanding presentation of food, the service was excellent and we had a great time.
Always a standard must eat at place for many years whenever I visit Portland. Can’t really get a better review than that.
Great food and service as usual. While somewhat speedy this simply the best seafood in Portland
Near perfection on all courses. The smoked trout app was amazing! Oysters on the half shell were as good as any. My wife had the crab leg saute'. She can't go there and not order it. I had Razor clams, they were outstanding.
I have decided we need to go there more often just to try more of the menu.
An obvious favorite of ours.
Food was excellent and our server was awesome and genuine.
Are you kidding me!!! What a top notch restaurant from the menu to the service. This was our first time in Portland and it was one of the restaurants that was highly recommend and it didn’t disappoint! Every appetizer was delicious and the chefs Daily fish choices were fresh and hardy. As a matter of fact we came back on Sunday for brunch and enjoyed yet another meal and a few Bloody Mary’s.
Our family of four (2 teenagers) went into town and had a lovely experience at Jakes. We had our own little private area by the front door. The ambiance is vintage eclectic, our waiter was attention but not disruptive and the food was very tasty. Will return. Fun place to bring out of town guests.
Came here for a date night, food was amazing, wish I had room for dessert!!!
Good food especially seafood
For the price more upscale
Took our friends out to Jake’s for my husband’s birthday. Two of use ordered the razor clams and they were delicious. One of use ordered the rock fish which was cooked okay, but the sauce that it was serviced in was a little off. The birthday boy ordered one of his favorite dishes, Bouillabaisse… not so good. There was plenty of seafood which was good but it was missing the one thing that makes Bouillabaisse more than just a fish stew that being Saffron. Since my husband has ordered Bouillabaisse at many different restaurants across the country and this being Jake’s he never thought they would call their fish stew “Bouillabaisse”. We have been going to Jake’s since the 70’s and I think this is the first time we left feeling like we didn’t have a good time and a great meal. WE will go back but it may be awhile.
Every bite was delicious! We were visiting from Vancouver BC and would highly recommend Jake’s to any visitor!
