We enjoyed everything! The table was a little creaky.

All the food was outstanding except for my grandsons broccoli cheese soup. The cheese was curdled! I don’t think there’s any excuse for this in a restaurant of that caliber. I hesitated to say anything to the waitress because this really was a gift for my two grandchildren for Christmas. We just decided to use it in January. I didn’t want to spoil the mood. Although they have been to this restaurant many times, it was my first visit. I liked the ambience, and we did get a window table which was wonderful.

I love this solid long term icon restaurant in downtown Portland. You can always trust you will get a very good meal, and the service has always been fantastic. Had a table by the window and it was perfect for a business conversation. Not loud at all. Classy and good all the way around!

During the holidays my wife, her cousin (a very busy lady) and I meet at Jake's Grill for a quiet, chatty two hour lunch. This has become a tradition. We have never been disappointed. The food is great, the service is polite, friendly and efficient and the prices are reasonable.
I request a window table (if possible) and so far our luck has been good.

Thank you Jakes.

We have reviewed our love of this restaurant many times on Open Table as we frequent it often. The space is one of the loveliest restaurant venues in the city, service is always exceptional and the food and Martini's the best.

Still has fair pricing in a city where food has gotten expensive. And quality continues to be consistent.

I would normally recommend Jakes on any occassion. However, after going there for a holiday, i would recommend avoiding Jakes on any of the big or romantic holidays. Even though i made a reservation weeks in advance, we were sat nearly an hour past our reservation time. It really put a damper in our evening since there wasn’t even space for us to sit or have drinks at the bar so our party was forced to stand for an hour waiting. Once being seated It took an additional 30 minuets to order food. Our server was wonderful, It was apparent she was stretched thin and not very supported. I was disappointed to be in charge of making plans and putting so much faith in Jakes to make our dinner experience perfect.

Although this restaurant is generally a good choice they clearly blew it for New Year’s Eve. Perhaps greed took over as they clearly accepted far to many reservations and therefore could not handle the volume. I heard 3 other people ask for the managers name as they were very unhappy.
Our reservation was for 7:00- we were finally seated at 7:45. Then it was another 45 minutes before our order was taken, and our semi warm food arrived 25 minutes after that for part of the table and we all got to wait again for the rest of the table to get served.
Good restaurant on a average day but never for a holiday.

Food was great. Enoviorment was good too. But our server was awful. Keep forgetting about us and took 10 minutes to even greet us after we were sat.
