Jake's Famous Crawfish
Delicious grilled salmon. We all had salmon entrees and everyone loved theirs. Got lucky with a table that was in a little alcove overlooking the street so it was quieter than the open area and fun to see the passers by
Very nice restaurant with exceptional service. Ordered the crab cakes & halibut, and both were perfect. I’d return again if ever in Portland
It life's up to its reputation. They know what to do with seafood. Sigh
Very good and historic atmosphere.
First Dinner with my daughter in her new home town of Portland
Always a favorite place to dine when we are in Portland. The selection of fresh fish is great and the service excellent.
The history of the bar is awesome too.
Our service was second to none. Moriko was superb and knew her stuff! Gave us lots of info then allowed us ponder and decide. It made out trip to your establishment great. The ambiance was a cool New Orleans vibe and the food was delicious.
Service was slow and poor. Food is excellent as always.
Freshest seafood in Portland! I rate the quality of any restaurant by how they cook their vegetables and Jake's presented the perfectly cooked crisp bright green beans, delicious and potatoes and decent white wine. What more can you ask for. Our server, a lovely woman with a long hair (sorry I never remember names) obviously was an experienced server. She was friendly, timely and made great recommendations for both wine and food. We'll be back again soon.
Anniversary lunch of crab etouffe and halibut cheeks
Delicious. Excellent server and service.
Wish they valet parked st lunch too.
Waiter was non/existent. Had to ask for water, water refills and bread from 3-4 different servers as our waiter was MIA.
I ordered my steak well done. It came out rare. By the time they fixed it, everyone else was on dessert.
Fantstic! No wonder it's the most recommended restaurant around. Great service by new server Victoria. She tries very hard and is learning the ropes quickly. No. Wait, twenty years plus. It certainly shows.
Probably the best fish restaurant in Portland but prices are really high.
Special spot for celebrations
It was a very nice pricey seafood restaurant. The food was very good but not very far out of the ordinary.
Jake's Crawfish is my favorite place to take important clients and out of town guests. Great food, awesome service and wonderful old Portland charm!
We had the quiet table we requested. My mussels were the best I’ve had anywhere! Our waitress Karen was wonderful and guided us thoughtfully through the extensive menu. A warm, friendly, comfortable place for a great dining experience, topped off by small options of the oh so tempting desserts.
Always a wonderful time!
We kick off our family vacation each year with dinner at Jakes! It’s perfect every time!! Thank you!
Best seafood I’ve had in awhile. Staff was great. Definitely recommended.
I would give 5 stars but we had a little incident. The staff had one opportunity to fix it and they did! The manager was quick to address the issue and our waitstaff went beyond making things right. The food is delicious and reasonably priced for the serving size.
Fun dining experience at a venerable Portland dining institution.
Jakes was recommended by the staff at The Spencer Hotel in Portland Oregon! Everything was outstanding from the moment we walked in! Food, atmosphere, friendly staff. We will be back!
Your Texas friends!
Reservation was ready on time, quiet booth, waitress brought ice water and bread followed by wine and food menu.
Service was great and the food was excellent.
If you enjoy seafood, this is the place to go.
A must for stay in Portland. Great food, service, and facilities.
It rocked. Yummy. Excellent service. Tasty food. Beautiful beloved soulmate company
The menu included some very tasty New Orleans style food options (among other styles). I’ve been to NOLA and I can tell you that the NOLA-style food is better at Jakes.
My son, however, had a steak. It was tough to chew so he left half uneaten.
The service was very good... wait staff was friendly and attentive.
The value to price ratio was not aligned. You can find better bang for your buck elsewhere.
Awesome evening al fresco with great food, wine and FAB4 girlfriends. Thank you Morgan for taking such good care of us!
All of the seafood dishes are excellent! We had the stuffed salmon and Dungeness crab.
Classic and classy. Great food and service like the customer is important.
Great historical dinning establishment. Large menu selection of fish and seafood. Nice atmosphere for special occasions. Everything is pricey. Had to have overcooked halibut replaced, should not have happened and spoiled the dinner interactions. Not even an after dinner coffee offered on the house to make up. The service reluctance was a negative surprise.
If there were a 6th or 7th star I would gladly check it. I am so glad I found this place. The food is extraordinary: delicious, fresh, beautifully presented and plentiful. I had the best etoufee I’ve ever had. My sister delighted in her bouillabaisse and our friend loved her mushroom/shrimp dish. And the Manhattan Clam Chowder was absolutely delicious. Being lactose intolerant I am always delighted to see it on the menu. This one is superb with loads of clams and other stuff. Just perfect. This is a wonderful restaurant and we will definitely return.
Great service (thanks Kieth), great food as always.
Another great meal! I only had two issues, that I did not bring up with our server. The Blueberry Palmer is too sour for my taste, but I knew what I was getting into when I ordered it. Also, with my delicious crab cakes came with perfectly cooked green beans and mashed potatoes. The Mashed potatoes need a bit of something, they're kind of boring. But outside of that, excellent meal and service.
Everything was exactly how I liked it.
Every time I visit Portland jake’s is a place I must go but I think this past visit will be last for me. Food quality just isn’t the same, server didn’t write down my drink order and completely forgot about it, my MR steak was more like blue Rare in the middle however I didn’t complaint. Many occasions it was hard to find our server so we just stop asking for things we need.
A bit of disappointment for sure.
Great and original lineage Portland place - even though now owned by a large conglomerate, still has the same feel that it has had for years.
Excellent food and great and personable service. We ate in the reservation area and it was gorgeous. Our waitress was absolutely wonderful. The food was prepared exquisitely. Overall a great dining experience!
