The food was terrible. It needed to be seasoned, both mine and my husband's fish was dry and undersalted. My saffron tomato broth tasted metallic and ruined the entire dish. The lobster risotto cake was soggy and also tasted off. The supposedly blackened rock fish had no flavoring that tasted blackened.
Everyone that I've talked to about the meal is shocked that I had this experience but I was highly disappointed. It was mine and my husband's anniversary as well.

It was a lovely space and great service. Portion size for appetizer small. Soup portion small. Expensive for those items.

My brother is visiting and I picked this as our weekend evening out. We weren’t disappointed. The food was excellent and our waiter Brian was very very good. Plus the prime rib dinner was a great bang for the buck. My brother was impressed and I was so pleased. My husband and I will be back . . .

Sunday’s are saved for prime rib so naturally we decided to give it try. Incredibly flavorless, lukewarm, and on the dry side. Even the cream-style horseradish and au jus couldn’t save it from mediocrity. Mac and cheese wasn’t anything special and their wine by the glass was relatively overpriced - for what was offered. Service was friendly, however, our oyster appetizer order was thought to have not been wanted as well as a second glass of wine. On the positive, the triple berry crisp was very good. That said, one and done. No need to return.

We enjoyed our first time at Jake’s and in Portland. Everything was great. The oysters were not the best I’ve ever had but everything else top notch. Server was very helpful and sorry to see that they were understaffed but we were very understanding and patient.

Was pleasantly surprised to get in with last minute reservations. Even though the bar was crowded, and staff limited, once the bartender knew we were there tended to us thoroughly, quickly, with good humor, and added to the enjoyment of the dinner experience. The food was excellent! Will return!!!

The food and service was good. The Salmon was not local it was Atlantic salmon. The appetizer was good and dessert was good. The Pinot Noir wine that I had tasted like rubbing alcohol and smelled a little of rubbing alcohol so I could not drink it.

Very nice place and food was good!

However, when booking my reservation I was asked if it was a special occasion and my fiancée and I were celebrating our engagement so I noted that in the reservation but when we got there it was not acknowledged at all. Nothing was said to us when we arrived about our engagement not through out our time there. Then after when we were leaving we got a “bye, congrats” and that was it.

Wonderful NYE dinner. Our server was really nice and very attentive but she seemed a little frazzled. Can’t blame her though, it was NYE and the restaurant was packed. Food and drinks were delicious. My only complaint would be that the pre-fixe menu was a little deceiving. There were prices listed for the main entrée but for a soup/salad or dessert, it was an additional cost which was not listed. Our server was kind Enough to explain. I assumed that soup/salad and dessert would be included. Other than that, great food, great service. Can’t wait to go back.

Good value for the price. Excellent service. Only one negative comment, I had prime rib and would have appreciated the option of ordering a larger portion. Overall I was very satisfied with my meal.

Worst dining experience in years. Christmas Eve. Empty restaurant.

Our waitress lied about being out of lobster. The guy who sat down after us ordered two and they arrived before our meal. We got cold soup and had to share a steak knife the entire meal. She was never around until the bill came.

Manager was angry and rude. He just shrugged. You could tell no one wanted to be there.

Don’t go. Downtown Portland is dying. Business owners need to come together and revive downtown. But they won’t. Sad to see.

Bye Jakes. We had some great memories there.

Jakes is an absolute favorite, as you can always depend on both the food and the service. They make great martinis, and try to get a window seat to give you some privacy for a great meal. Old world charm of a place--can't beat it.

It was amazing service and delicious food. There was only one issue with expediting the food as my aunt’s fish dish was the beer batter was chewy and fries/chips came out cold. My aunt enjoyed the fish and removed the batter. However, the server and management did fix it immediately either offering a re fire, they removed the item from the check. Overall this was a wonderful night and will continue to frequent Jake’s. Thank you for making my parents 50th wedding anniversary a delight celebration.
