    We had a Crab Louie Salad and Salmon Mushroom Fetticini. Both were quite good. The service was excellent and we were very impressed to see a full non-alcoholic menu of cocktails. More of this!!

    Very good service and pretty good food. Love the “old school” ambience and our waitress was a pro—with Jake’s for 35 years! Mentioned several celebrities (Madonna, John Travolta, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw) who had eaten there. My oysters were a little underdone and potatoes had been reheated. Wife’s fish was excellent. Butter with the bread tasted funny. Prices were in the 40s and 50s per plate. Happy hour specials not available in the dining room. Might not go again myself but would recommend for the experience with these cautions.

    Service and food was amazing. Price as usual is high. Through no fault of the restaurant there was a family of 7 with 3 obnoxious children out of control. Luck of the draw I guess.

    Outstanding service; amazing food in an atmospheric venue; Oregon at its finest! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. The stuffed Steelhead Trout was perfectly cooked and my "Jake's Famous Étouffe" packed a powerful punch! This was a delightful discovery and we will certainly return on a future visit to this city.

    A historic Portland standby for old school seafood fine dining. I don't suggest looking here for the latest fad, but if you want high quality seafood with a traditional preparation, and old fashion highly attentive service, you can't go wrong here.

    The halibut was over cooked and beans had little flavor. The red wine was hot duck horn merlot. Nothing special about the service.

    Our server made wonderful recommendations. We specifically asked about the variety and sizes of the oysters. He pointed us in the right direction and we were not disappointed. My friends had a beautiful salad, her husband had the crab cakes and I had the Parmesan crusted sole. We left with full bellies!

    Seems to be somewhat dated and resting on its laurels and reputation. My mousses were tired and had clearly been left under a hot plate to keep warm and weren’t fresh but also only lukewarm. The sourdough bread was a little dry and chewy. The crab cakes however were fresh, hot and flavoursome and the vegetables al dente. The server was a rushed and perfunctory. Overall, not that impressive and would t rich back .

    Overall very disappointed with the food, it was definitely not up to our expectations of Jake’s. The escargot were metallic tasting and the crab and shrimp cakes were dry. The Caesar salad was good and calamari was ok but certainly not exceptional. Our family has a multigenerational relationship with Jake’s going back to 1945 when my parents ate there on their honeymoon. We have always considered Jake’s to be an exceptional dining experience. It definitely did not live up to that on July 16, 2022. Still waiting for the return of the The Berry Cobbler!
