Today was a very busy day for Jake’s. This was not anticipated.
They handled it with grace. We were seated 10 min after our reservation. De’Shawn and Anna were amazing! Food was great, staff friendly and efficient! Grateful for our patience! Everyone should be patient today! Though they did not have breakfast on the menu, they offered to make me simps items!! The most amazing accommodation this dmLl town girl has ever experienced in a big city!! Thank you Jake’s Grill for putting a smile on my face.

Jake's Grill has been 1 of our downtown favorites for years, so it was great to find that they have very thorough Covid precautions in place. Food, bar, and service are as top-notch as ever.

What a wonderful evening visiting Jakes Grill with a friend from out of town. The service was good and the food excellent. I had the chef's special salmon, stuffed with dungenesse crab, shrimp, sun dried tomatoes and melted brie cheese (yummy). They are doing a good job with social distancing and would recommend it to anyone who is comfortable eatingout.

At the time of reservation, I noted we had a newly wed couple and a 65th birthday we were celebrating. The host seated us at a far back table in a drab corner. I requested another option and the host said there was nothing else available. I walked around and found that bar booths and tables were completely empty with views of the outside. The booths had much more ambiance! I asked a waiter passing by if we could sit there. He was very nice and said yes of course. So why didn't the host give us that option in the first place? He obviously made no effort to make our dining experience better.

Our waiter was very good, however, I ordered a medium rare steak and it ended up being med to well done. I did not send it back as I didn't want to ruin dinner for the rest of my group. For the money spent it should have been perfect. It was a very mediocre steak. Like something you might get at Stanford's and pay half the price!

Our 49th anniversary. My wife had shared that when we made the reservation, the staff made a point of recognizing it. Stuffed salmon was excellent. House wine was very good. Anna's service was simply amazing. Complimentary creme brulee was a very sweet touch.

A really great dining experience, even with downtown Portland being so quiet and in a bit of turmoil. The staff was welcoming and the food simply terrific. Jake’s never disappoints. Every time I’m in town, if possible I have dinner there.

jake's was excellent as usual in relation to the food quality, portions, service etc. What was missing was the energy from other patrons. We were 1 of 4 couples in the entire place. this is not Jake's fault but rather due to the City of Portland being under siege. It is a ver sad situation. We usually go over once a month to enjoy but no more.

Jake's was wonderful for our family group. The food was delicious, and the server accommodated several of our exceptional requests, e.g., dairy-free for one, child's menu, shared entrees. Because of pandemic restrictions, it was a bit too quiet and dark, so I'm sure it will be better when life is more normal.

My wife ordered Dungeness Crab and Bay Shrimp Stuffed Salmon but it was just OK. She does not remember seeing any shrimp. Disappointing for a signature plate. I had the Braised Short Rib Stroganoff it was OUTSTANDING!

The restaurant was not real busy due to the affects of the Virus in Portland, but everyone there seemed to be having a great time. We came for a delicious meal and we weren't disappointed. My friend had Shrimp Scampi with a wedge salad and I had the Scallops with Clam Chowder. The scallops were so lucious, light and buttery. I wish I had ordered a second helping....they were that good! I had the best meal and really wish I had asked for a second helping. My buddy had the Shrimp Scampi and he was raving about the flavor and tenderness of the shrimp. Excellent Job!!! We will come back the next time we are in town..so thank you for a amazing meal!

They still do it well! Firstly our server Tucker was fantastic. Attentive, professional, funny and quick. We were sitting in a dining window which was nice though not quite their bar vibe we looked for. However, 6 people dining at once in a pandemic...yeah, we were just fine. The food was, as is always, tasty, flavorful, and solid. I love there burger for its classic attributes. They put the flavor in the beef not with Knick-knacky extras like a Red Robin or something. We had the halibut, chicken tacos, calamari, sautéed mushrooms and the chef was gracious in extending some vegan options to our guest. BTW: order the grilled asparagus...the char makes all the difference.
Overall, was very happy and pleased with our first outing after COVID reopening. In fact I’m going back this week with other friends!
