    Food was excellent service was horrible. 🙁 The waiter didn’t check on us but twice. We were out of drinks, water and when our food came we didn’t see him until after we ate.

    Haven't been to Jakes for well over 15 years and it didn't disappoint. The food was great and the service was good as well. We did have to call the waiter over several times for water, but it was busy. My 2 complaints... 1. Indoor Temperature: It is way too warm. With all the people it felt like 90 degrees inside. 2. Parking: One of our invited guests didn't even make it to the dinner due to the hassle in the parking. We drove around for 20 minutes trying to find a place to park and when we did it was 4 blocks away. The parking garage they stated was open, was not. I highly suggest you Uber or Lyft there and save yourself the headache. Overall was a wonderful dinner celebrating my girlfriend's 60th birthday. We will be back #inanubernexttime

    Had a wonderful birthday lunch at Jake's! Our server, Julie, was fantastic and very helpful in helping me pick out a great lunch--I chose the Crab Louie salad and it was wonderful! Our oldest son joined us and we had a great time all together. Because it was my birthday, I was offered a small dessert (which was just right) and my husband and son had the cheesecake which was delicious! We are looking forward to coming back to Jake's soon!

    Jake's has been a favorite of ours since 2004 - especially for holidays. While the service and ambiance are still top-notch, the food has gone noticeably downhill while the pricing has increased. I get the price increase, but so disappointed it's not worthy of a special meal out unless you stick to appetizers and dessert.

    My salmon was undercooked and inedible. Unfortunately, this was the rare occasion when the waiter did not come back to see how things were going. The waiter also forgot to bring the bread we ordered. Also, my husband spilled a drink on the table in front of him and when he told the waiter, all he got was an "I'm sorry" - no offer to replace the paper on the tabletop and re-set the table. My husband more than likely would have refused that offer, but it didn't come. In the end, when the waiter was picking up our plates, he saw I had left my uncooked fish. I told him it just wasn't cooked enough for me. To his immense credit, when he brought the bill, he had comped my meal and half our wine. We have always loved Jake's and go there whenever we're in Portland. This was one very disappointing experience among many outstanding ones.

    The history alone makes Jake’s a place to visit! Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and friendly. We had oysters on the half-shell for starters…nice and fresh. I had a cup of oyster stew and then pan fried yearling oysters for my entree…did I mention that I love oysters! Anyway, everything was delicious and the only complaint is that there was no room for any dessert!

    On what I can only imagine to be one of the most difficult evenings of the calendar year for restaurants, Jake's Famous Crawfish surpassed all expectations. We had a spectacular Thanksgiving Dinner without a turkey in sight and the absolute best service I personally have experienced since pre-COVID days. Congratulations to this fine establishment and Kudos to Gretchen who made the evening for the three of us.

    Had a really fun time with my family! The atmosphere and ambiance was classic Jake’s. Service was fantastic and food was delicious. The only thing they need to improve on is that they need vegan / vegetarian options. Other than that, had a really great experience!

    What a pleasant surprise! Looking around for a Portland/Vancouver restaurant with an interesting Thanksgiving meal - settled on Jakes. Unknown to us after living in the area for 5 years. Very familiar with the neighborhood but had always missed seeing the restaurant. Made reservations & only waited in line for a few moments. Tatum was our server & she was exceptional. Informed & charming & only stopping by an appropriate number of times. Excellent turkey & dressing for my wife & a wonderful steelhead dish for me. The number of different & distant rooms that make up the restaurant help break up the number of people into smaller groups. We will be back & have already told many friends about this wonderful place.

    My wife and I were joined by four other friends. We had reserved a table for six, for 5:30 and were able to change it to 5:15 as we were all earlier than expected and on a schedule as we were all going to an event after dinner. We were promptly greeted and seated at our table. The service was spot on. The drinks and food were top notch and worth the prices. We all agreed that we would come here again in a heartbeat.

    It was a birthday celebration. They sat us in the middle of the dining room on a table to big for our party. Would have preferred a more intimate booth. The service was good, but the food was marginal for the prices.

    Overall a good experience. Server was great. Never been to jakes before and I’ve been in Oregon since the late 80’s. Value was ok, could be less priced for amount of food but it’s fine. Inflation and after Covid everything has changed. I would go back someday.
