I go there a lot, and always enjoy it. This particular time, the restaurant and bar were both packed; I got one of the last two bar stools, and more people coming in. The bartenders were amazing, working fast and hard, and still taking time to be friendly. The bartender that waited on me was Raymond, and he was absolutely fantastic! I got outstanding service, in spite of the fact that he was extremely busy. I enjoyed conversations with others sitting around me at the bar, and they were all quite happy, too.

Although the menu was limited for V-day, the food was top notch. The server gave some of the best customer service I've had, he was very polite and attentive. This will definitely be a regular date night place.

We reserved early the same day for lunch, and were very satisfied with our meals. I had the beef dip on a gluten free bun, and it was very good. Lovely room, good service. I would definitely recommend this and would like to go back for dinner sometime.

We thought that the food was outstanding. I had the Ribeye and my wife had the Manhattan Oscar --- both were excellent. And cooked as requested. Our Server Rob was friendly very knowledgeable and efficient.

The food, service and environment were all great! Deducting a star because a member of the party’s steak was under cooked which resulted in them not eating with us but overall I’d highly recommend this place!

Ate at Jake's before going to the Portland Armory for a play. What a great night. The dining room was beautiful at Jake's, my salmon was delicious, and the service was wonderful. Will definitely eat there again when I visit Portland in the future.

Very nice server and great food. People watching was quite entertaining.
During our business lunch some random man stopped outside our window table staring at us and tried to take our picture!

The food here is excellent. And never too salty, which I appreciate. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. Our server, Shirley, is the best! She made a great dining experience even better. Unfortunately we had an obnoxiously loud man laughing and giggling loudly at the next table the entire time we were there. But that is no fault of the restaurant; it could happen anywhere. Thankfully with the great food, great cocktails and wonderfully friendly service, we managed to block him out as much as we could.

The service was unfailingly attentive, personable and polite. Our food was excellent. My wife and I shared a fried calamari appetizer. She had a glass of prosecco and I drank pinot grigio. Then, we split orders of sauteed oysters and fish and chips. The unheralded gem on the plates was the excellent coleslaw.

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.

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