I took my husband there for his birthday since he is a meat lover! We made reservations for a Sunday evening and were seated right away. The waiter was attentive and the service was great. The server gave us plenty of time in between dishes to eat and drink. My husband ordered the T-bone medium well. It was cooked to perfection not to mention the portion was massive. I ordered the surf and turf (lobster tail and petite filet mignon). Meat was ordered medium well and it melted in my mouth. The lobster was tender and the garlic butter sauce was delicious. Overall a great experience and will be returning soon.

I’ll start by saying that I have been to jakes over 20 times and it’s normally a great restaurant. This past Saturday however this was not the case. I ordered two orders of the skirt steak. The server however (don’t recall her name) brings 2 orders I of shell steak. When I tell her that I ordered skirt steak she immediately catches an attitude and says no u did not u said shell steak. She then goes on to remind me that this happened with us before. She was right I remember we had that issue on a prior visit which I didn’t recall at the time. That also tells me that this server most likely remembered that issue the moment I placed the order and could have clearly just double checked by saying excuse me did you say skirt or shell. After she basically forced me to eat the shell steak she avoided the table completely. Passed by one time to check and never saw her again. She even sent another server to bring the check and retrieve the check. Was never even offered dessert. Easily the worst experience I’ve ever had at jakes and needless to say I would ask for another server if I ever saw her there again. For the record I never ever order shell steak so it’s not a mistake I would make skirt steak and t bone are what me and my wife order 90% of the time we go there .

My brother wanted to treat me to dinner for my birthday. He lives in Manhattan and had never been to Jake’s. He loved it. He rates it a 10. I have been to Jake’s many times and have always been very pleased. We will be back!

Very good. Happy to find an inclusive specials menu on Sunday until 6, though would like a few more choices. But considering that Riverdale tends to be a food desert, this is a fine restaurant, especially for meat eaters.

The food and service was exceptional. We usually drop in to JAKES at least twice a week. Once for a sandwich or salad at the bad and the second time for a full meal at a table. Feels like home.

Had a nice evening with family. Was easy to get to off/On the Henry Hudson Pkwy so location was convenient. Food was well presented with large portions and great tasting. I would suggest they highlight the Valet Parking since it’s the city parking is sparse but once I figured it out it was a breeze. I would go there again. Neighborhood was safe and well lit for walking short distances...also close to a nyc city train service.

Food was good and prices fair for the quality. Service was poor putting it mildly!!!! Was a birthday surprise and despite several requests and phone calls before hand to ensure all was in order everything was forgotten. It was a Tuesday night and quiet so no excuses.

Went to Jake's for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner. The food and service was outstanding but the noise level is high. They might consider doing a bit more with the decor to deaden the sound level. Still an outstanding choice. They even gave the wife a rose at the end of the meal. Fun, friendly place with great food, drink and service - we will keep going back.

Food was outstanding service only okay which is a surprise since it is usually outstanding.
Also it was a birthday celebration and although they were notified on the reservation nothing was done. I still recommend the restaurant highly as I am sure it was just an oversight.

The food was great and staff did a nice job. Highly recommend the T-bone steak. Taste and grilled to perfection. Can stand on its own against multiple high-end NYC and regional steakhouses Only draw-back was noise level but that was due to one large party. Hard to manage obnoxious people. I will back for the food and bar.

Jakes steakhouse is everything you would want from a quality steakhouse. The food was fantastic. My wife and I both ordered fillets and they were cooked perfectly.

The waitstaff was highly professional and attentive. They gave us plenty of time between courses to talk and relax. At no point did we feel rushed or hurried to eat and leave.

The atmosphere was also top notch. They have found the sweet spot between a fine dining experience that also feels accommodating to families.

I cannot wait until I can return to this gem of a steakhouse that puts most of the “upscale” manhattan eateries to shame.
