My experience at Jake's was great, it was my boyfriends birthday and we had a great time. We had the crab cake and tomato bruschetta as appetizers, both were great. For dinner we both had the surf & turf, with two shareable sides of asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes. The filet mignon was amazing and the lobster tail was incredible, it paired great with the sides. For dessert my boyfriend loved the Broadway brownie, while I enjoyed the chocolate ice cream. Overall our waiter was polite, the restaurant was clean and calm, it was a great experience, I will definitely be back again.

The onion soup and clams oreganata were just ok. Filet mignon crostini was tasty. The best dish was my husband's spinach & Brie salad. Lobster mac and cheese was disappointing.

Sad that current covid restrictions keep this great neighborhood restaurant from serving more of its clients but the food and staff are as good as ever.

Steaks were not cooked the way we wanted , waitress 35 mins just to greet us, the apps came out cold and before our water and wine. She claimed she could not find the bottle but 45 min after ordering it she found it . The steak was rare when I order medium well . Left extremely unhappy with the food and service ....

Jake's is back and I am so glad it is!!! Don't be afraid to go. They have taken every Covid precaution possible, including ensuring people leave their masks on when they are not sitting. Expect to have your temp taken and you will have to sign a little attestation regarding your health. Same procedure is followed when I go to have my nails done. It is for our safety. My husband and I attended for our anniversary and the food was the same high quality as always. We started with Bang Bang Shrimp and had the Petite Filet and Shell Steak for our entrees. I always enjoy a cocktail or two and they make them great. What can I say, we had a great time. Please go support them. Let's not lose this neighborhood gem!

Our neighborhood go-to, including what may have been a last restaurant meal for a while given Covid-19 recommendations. We ate with friends at a booth at the bar and had, as usual, fantastic steaks (the best burger for me) and good salads. A lovely attentive waitress and a pleasant and relatively quiet environment to have a long chat. Highly recommended.

Highly recommended. Service is incredible. Food is very good. Our table had the marinated skirt steak, rack of lamb and sirloin special. All excellent. Cocktails were nice size and delicious as well. Bombay Saffire Martini, Grey Goose Cosmo and an Pomegranate cocktail were all excellent. Nice wines as well. Valet parking takes the pressure off of trying to park.

Another wonderful meal. My husband and I were at Jake's on Sunday, February 16. One would have expected it to be a quiet evening since Valentine's Day was two days earlier but no, Jakes's was packed...and the guests just kept on coming. Despite a full house, our food was cooked to perfection, served hot and our server was delightful. As an example of how important Jake's guests are to them, even the Manager helped get food to the tables! Just something to remember, if you are alone or if you forgot to make a reservation, Jake's serves a full menu at the bar where there are three TVs and two charming bartenders to keep you entertained. If you have not been there yet....go, you will not be disappointed!

I love Jake’s! A great lunch today... only drag is the parking for lunch AND Thursdays no parking on that side of the street during lunch hours. I used to live closer and so, would go more often. A great spot to sit at the bar, have a steak and watch a Yankees game. If dining in restaurant, I would recommend asking for a table upstairs by the window as the views of Van Cortland Park are lovely. Great food, service... will visit again soon.
