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.
It was a nice meal
Server was very sassy and rude when we got our food me and my dates steak were the same inside almost raw and my girlfriend ordered medium done while I ordered medium rare when returned to us my girlfriends steak was burnt and look like charcoal mine was slightly better.the waitress kept sass throughout and giving us rude looks comment oh finally done when we finished and took 10 minutes to finish paying with my card I gave her
Food was served quickly and the server was very nice. Have come to Jake's for years.
I had a great time with my friend and the food and service were great. Great portions and cant tell you how well the staff treats everyone..
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!
The food was amazing with nice portions. Our waitress, Taylor, was amazing! It was a great night!
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!
Enjoyed a late lunch with the family. Had an awesome sandwich and a fine cup of clam chowder. The service was top notch as always.
Very Nice. One of my favorite restaurants in Portland. Anyone looking for a good steak, look no further. Jake’s Grill has got you covered
Mara Ann was waited on my large group and did a wonderful job
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 booth was great.
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.
When my wife and I travel to Portland we always make sure to eat at Jake's. We have eaten at Jake's on our anniversary for the last ten years.
Excellent food and service. Great experience.
My go to location for important business meetings and conversations. Excellent service with great food. Plus you can use the paper table cloth to take notes ;-).
A wonderful brunch on the week-end. Nice choice and fairly priced. Alexia was our server and she was great!
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!
Always good food and good services. Convenient location and parking garage.
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.
