    About as good as it gets in Riverdale. But prices are considerably higher for some items than those posted online. Also, $18 for a martini, Bombay Sapphire or not, is just ridiculous. Baked seafood special was good except for the potatoes that were quite tasteless. Corn was excellent. Steaks ordered were enjoyed, but again price is outrageous particularly since even the sauce was extra. Overall, food good, place noisier than would have preferred for those with hearing problems. Prices really too high--it is the Bronx. Waiter was lovely.

    Food was awesome, service great. Definitely try the Tomahawk steak or the dry age rib eye and of course, ask them to make it jakes style! Lobster truffle Mac and cheese is to die for honestly.

    my wife and i have gone to jakes for special occasions many times. i found that the service this time was quite slow. we had mussels fra diavlo which was great. my wife had as an entre surf and turf. the lobster was very good her filetmignon although cooked correctly was not very tender and she left most of it. i had the bone in rib eye which was excellent and enough for at least two people. my wife had an irish coffee which was very good and i had a lloyds carrot cake which was very dry almost a left over from the previous day.overall we would go back because we have very rarely been disappointed and i understand that the price was kind of high but with whats going on today i can understand why it is so.

    Hello diners...I was thinking that we have been guests at Jakes for between 14 and 15 years now. I am happy to report that Jakes made it through Covid with flying colors. They did everything they could to keep going and, thanks to very tenacious and talented management, they were successful. We had another wonderful evening there this past Saturday. We typically sit in the bar area because my knees are not friends with the stairs so, if you are downstairs you can expect an energetic vibe. If you are looking for a more quite experience, request a table upstairs. Regardless of where you sit, you will be greeted by the most friendly servers who go out of their way to ensure that your dining experience is a pleasant one. This Saturday was no different, Christian was our server and he could not have been more delightful. I started with a cocktail (they make great ones and their wine list is excellent as well). My husband and I shared bang-bang shrimp to start, he had the filet, I had the lamb chops and we share a baked potato. Everything was exceptional as usual. Friends of mine happened to have reservations at Jake this same evening. For two of them, it was their first time at the restaurant. When I asked about their dining experience, I was told that the service and food was equal to some of the best steakhouses they have been to in Manhattan and that the ambiance was better (they were upstairs). We finished with coffee because we were so full from dinner but they do have a lovely dessert selection if you have room. What more can I say. If you have not tried Jakes, please go. If you live in Westchester, why take a trip to NY when Jakes is in your own backyard. Valet parking is available so if you were stressing about where to park in the Bronx, you can cross that one off you list!

    I love how classy and homey it felt and looked. The host was nice and the waiter was respectful. But I asked him for water twice and never got a refill for me or my children. The food wasn’t very tasty. The steak was ok and Mac and cheese didn’t have any flavor whatsoever. I didn’t have a bad experience but I won’t be returning.

    Very old school, dark lighting, dark furniture vibes. Was nice and quiet so my friend and I could actually talk and hear each other —we were there for almost three hours chatting away. Service was great, the waiter and host were kind and professional. I had high hopes for this place given the excellent reviews but it was just OK. The food, especially the steak, wasn’t anything to write home about so that was disappointing. Drinks were solid, though again, nothing spectacular. Dessert was good. I don’t think the quality is worth the money unfortunately.

    Everything was excellent with the exception of portion size. For $98, we expected the Porterhouse for Two to be a good bit bigger. I think you get more beef with the NY Strip Steak for $38.

    I absolutely loved the fine dining area. The brick walls, view and lighting made for a most relaxed, romantic evening. The servers were pleasant and the food very well prepared. I had the braised boneless beef ribs (delicious), while my boyfriend dined on skirt steak. The garlicky mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and salads were generous servings with lunch portion left overs. I will definitely frequent Jake's again!

    As a local, I frequent Jake’s quite a few times a year. The vibe pays homage to casual elegance and keeping a focus on simplicity and quality. This last visit I invited my good friends to celebrate their engagement. Food was great as usual but Phil, our server, almost ruined our night with his aggressive unprofessionalism. My friend wanted to add something to her dinner order and tried to tack it on as Phil began walking away. He didn’t hear her, so I tried by saying “excuse me” since I had a better vantage point to his earshot. He walked over and in a thuggish manner asked if we were going to have a problem. We were taken aback at his aggressive response, so with shock, we assured him that there was no problem, explaining that we were trying to get his attention to add on a side. He proceeded to say that he thought he’d done a good job thus far serving us, and we agreed with him. Then, he explained that he was in the middle of starting to wait on another table, which ended in an awkward standstill. In an effort to move on from his surprising and threatening reaction, we just agreed with him and let him go on his way. Never would I expect such an unprofessional response from a server for trying to add to our $400+ night with an “excuse me”. We were in such a jovial mood, just trying to add in some sides, until Phil rained on our parade with his aggression. I give 5 stars for the establishment overall, no stars for Phil’s employment status there.

    A terrific Bronx steakhouse with that turn of the century ambience. The porterhouse for two was excellent, almost on par with Peter Luger. Loved the lamb chops and side order of fried sweet potatoes. Also a large and tasty double expresso. Didn’t have the vodka martini, which I regret, which is one of the best and most copious martinis I’ve ever had as we decided to go for wine by the glass. I had the Pinot noir which was quite good. A wonderful place for a celebration, a date, or just a very good meal.

    When being treated out for dinner, I immediately thought of Jake’s Steakhouse. My husband and I love a good steak or rib dinner. I had the Jake’s rib meal and the meat just falls off the bone. The ribs are juicy and flavorful along with sweet potatoes made to perfection. My husband had the skirt steak, mashed potatoes and single order of Mac & Cheese. The marinated steak was a generous portion and tender. I tried and loved the creamy Mac & cheese with bread crumb sprinkled on top. The drinks were also on point and the selection was plentiful. I suggest the coconut mojito that has a spiced kick or the cool tasting cucumber margarita. You will be impressed with Jake’s Steakhouse from friendly and attentive staff from start to finish
